It's a sign of how high the team's recent results have set expectations. 10 to 12 years ago this would have been considered an incredibly successful season thus far.

Absolutely, and we should (and do) appreciate the improvement in recent years.

It's just that only a piece or two have been needed to take us over the hump for each of the 4-5 post-Henry years, and that move hasn't been made. Tantalizingly close.

The right piece or two would have put us over the hump in those years too.

This probably makes it worse, but I think you can pretty easily argue we were zero additional pieces away last year if not for Armas overthinking the Atlanta away game.

Coaching doesnt count as a piece?!

Yeah, I initially botched my first sentence. Last year's MLS review of our season was "The final piece. Ask anybody around the league about the Red Bulls and they'll tell you "top three team in MLS, one piece away." They've been saying that for six years."
