Or Tyronn Lue? We have a pro-sports coaching crisis in Ohio.
A few years ago, I saw my first reference to "Torts." I was a bit confused about the major connection between civil wrongs and hockey. Though, I would imagine cases have arisen between the two.
Can we take a moment to give Gregg some credit. Yesterday after 2 years of torturing us with Pedro Santos, in what was possibly a must win game, Gregg benched Pedro Santos. That would be a bold move if Pedro Santos wasn't so awful and begging with his poor play to be benched. Nonetheless, it was extremely out of character for Gregg and I think he deserves some credit.
We've had our moment? Good.
Now can we ask why the hell Gregg put Santos on the field in the 60th minute. It took 17 minutes for the Crew's lead to dissolve. Santos sucks. Berhalter sucks. Save us Ernie Stewart.
I hope to Guillermo that Santos's appearance yesterday had to do with the fact that we're on a short week, and we already knew we were in the playoffs because of the Montreal loss.
May Guillermo hear your prayer.
That said, guys like Sosa, Argudo and Opoku could use a little time to get up to speed with the rest of the team. Only Argudo made the bench. Santos churned through another useless 30 minutes of playing time.
He didn't bench Santos, he rested him so he can start and go all 90 against DC on Thursday.
My HC requirements are 3:
1. Previous experience as HC.
2. Crew Legend.
3. Part of 2008 MLS Cup team.
GBS is obviously first choice. However, we don't need to be GBS or bust. We do have one other member that fits all criteria.
Eddie Gaven. Make Beards Great Again. Gaven 2019!!!
That’s what I’m worried about.
Why are you so mean and terrible when your wife is so lovely?! Why, Kyle? Why?
Vegan. Asshole. Mod. What's not to like?
Shitpost and get fukt.
Fellow experts, some doofus on Twitter, @YeahMorgan , was saying that because Robert Wazycha didn't work out and it was soooo painful to have a Crew "legend" fail as a coach, that they don't want Guillermo as our coach. That bit of wisdom got over 100 likes.
What a bunch of sissified loser talk. Not just in soccer but in life. You date the hottest chick you can find even if its a kick in the gut when you split; you don't date some 6 or 7 because it will be less painful when it ends.
Furthermore, imagine thinking that Robert 'Dog House' Warzycha and Guillermo Barros Schelotto were roughly equivalent coaches with roughly equivalent talent, competitive spirit, and soccer knowledge. Guillermo is a champion, and has been a champion at everything he has ever done in his life on the biggest stage the America's offer. To not want to see what he could do for our Massive club out of fear, is so transparently gutless I had no choice but to go on this rant.
Agree completely. That is a loser mentality. I don't get it at all. I don't feel like Warzycha is permanently tainted by his shortcomings as our coach. Sure, at the end there it was bad, but no one is giving him the Eric Gehrig if they see him out and about. He made Columbus his permanent home. He's a legend.
GBS is the dream coach. Two of the premiere clubs in MLS are currently sniffing around to get him. He's one of the top coaches in the Americas. He also is a Crew Legend. Nothing he does shy of major jail time can change that (and even then, it depends). We have an "in" with this guy. Get the ownership turmoil settled and get him hired. He'll succeed or fail, retire, move on or be fired. He'll always be a legend and Massive Champion.
My biggest fear is that the season will end, Gregg will go to USMNT or LAG and we will not have an ownership in place to even hire a coach.
Even if we wanted GBS or hell Wenger or Mourinho, there is no one with the authority to sign that coach. Does Wolff or Nico Estevez becomme the coach by default or interim coach.
If they final agreement does not get signed until February, is GBS going to wait that long or get snatched by Atlanta or elsewhere?
This is a horrible take.
If GBS wants to come here, Dr. Pete will make it happen.
I hope new ownership gets a chance (and subsequently takes the chance) to talk to him before hes snatched up. They could re-sell him on all the things that make the Columbus community and area a place he wants to be....and he would probably have the desirable opportunity to have some input in the brand new training facilities he would get to enjoy.
Just hope he could handle the huge step down from Boca level standards to outdated Crew standards and not be tempted by Atlanta or whoever. He seems like a super down to earth, no frills, reserved type of guy though so it might not be as hard of a sell as some might imagine.
I know that was a joke... but looks like Eddie's coaching career is off to a bit of a rough start down there in Florida
I'll be the downer here, I guess.
GBS in Copa Libertadores final, and likely winning it, means we aren't getting him. Even Atlanta would be a slight surprise to me by this point... With his resume, especially if winning the final, he could pretty much go anywhere he wanted (outside of maybe a few huge European teams). And teams will be writing fat checks to get him. I know I'm not posting any groundbreaking insight here, just throwing it our there anyway
Bring back the That’s So Gaven banner, @ZipSix! If you bring (build) it, he will come (back).
Which is why my hope is that he would come here and here only as far as MLS is concerned. The connection, familiarity and love he has for the place would be the decider. Money would be about the same. He can't go any higher in Argentina, unless taking the national team job. As you say, he's not likely to go to championship caliber team in Europe so why would he go to a mid-level or below team?
My thinking is he stays at Boca or comes here.
They only won three games the previous year. He's more than doubled their win total in his first season.
