The road to greatness must go thru the Fire. After the contract extension for 2004, Greg A. stated that he thinks the current team is already a good team without a major overhaul. Greg A. has to upgrade the team. I do not see how the current team can beat the Fire next year. The Fire is such a well-oiled team, just looked at how they dominated the Rev in the Eastern Conf Final match. (and that match is just one example.) The battle is won or loss in the midfield. With the current crops of Crew midfields, we can not handle the like of Armas and Jessie Marsch. They swamed the Rev like bees in the midfield and beated the Rev midfields with ease. We need some new great midfield players to be able to be success next year.
