I know I'm early with this but it's 2020. Rules don't matter anymore, amirite? Delete if you must. What a season that was. Such a shame that people get to possibly use COVID-19 as an excuse for what transpired on the pitch in 2020. I'm actually glad this season is over finally. It was like watching two people who you know really well try and stay married even though everyone except the actual couple knows they are terrible together. At least with RSL you can trade away some of the kids for better ones. Freddy doesn't need to stay for the kids either. Perhaps a horrible analogy but been there, done that. Not coach RSL but I think I could do as well as Freddy AND use all five subs a game. So for next year to be successful RSL needs the following: 1. New non racist, misogynistic owner and capable FO preferably an owner with actual soccer acumen or willing to hire people with said acumen. Some good examples might be a Bill Manning, Garth Lagerway, or other successful FO executive types that RSL could hire and then drive away. Wait, I mean keep and return RSL to a half decent side. HIRE. SOCCER. PEOPLE. DUH. An owner that will keep RSL here. An owner that will use the entire RSL pyramid in a cohesive and useful manner. This list could be infinite. 2. New Head Coach and Technical Staff This has to be a non starter. When you have a HC that can't count to 5, and gets out coached in the second half of almost every game and both halves in most games you have a problem. There just are not enough stray feral cats for Freddy to adopt to change my mind about this matter. He needs to go as the HC. Not getting Kyle to 500 is just unbelievable. Even for 2020. WHAT. A. JOKE. Not using 5 subs and getting young players more playing time criminal. Freddy, or whomever made the decision not to be youth centric, should be immediately charged in FIFA court. Is that in the Hague too? 3. Roster overhaul This might be the understatement of the season. This roster is a mess. Throw in COVID and the limited ability to move players from RSL down to the Monarchs and leave them there was very telling this season. Loved Dunny bitching about players like Dougie not so fresh, Corey dribble into three players everywhere and anywhere on the pitch Baird, and Rossi always on the rocks, not living up to expectations. I was thinking what expectations could any sane person have for those players in 2020? Were you expecting them to lead you to MLS Cup Glory? Ridiculous. Take out the No in front of Rhyme and Reason when putting a new roster together. That should be a good place to start. 4. Fan engagement Take care of numbers 1-3 or at least start moving in that direction and it would not be hard reinvigorate this fan base. I would take a plucky bunch of guys playing their guts out in a system over what we were put through the last 10 games or so. Give us a team with vision, culture, and a visible plan and damn people will be packing the RioT. Safely of course. For a season that was incredibly tough all round and made even more so by having to watch utter incompetence run the team in the ground I am so looking forward to an exciting off season. Please be an exciting off season. Please.
