I was inspired by a couple of tweets I saw last night... The Revs have spent more $$$ on center backs the past two years than any other team in @MLS.— Matthew Doyle (@MattDoyle76) March 4, 2018 Nice win for the Philadelphia Union tonight, while New England looks destined for a rough season. Brad Friedel has his work cut out for him in his first head coaching job and I’m just not convinced that roster is good enough.— Ives Galarcep (@SoccerByIves) March 4, 2018 ...which reminded me that Mike Burns is really bad at his job. Don't believe me? Ask the people that have to deal with him. #MNUFC & #NERevs will not succeed while Manny Lagos & Michael Burns, respectively, are in positions of power at the clubs. #MINvSEA #CHIvNE— Ron Waxman 🏳️🌈🇺🇦 (@RonWaxman) August 6, 2017 He is a terrible GM.— Ron Waxman 🏳️🌈🇺🇦 (@RonWaxman) August 7, 2017 In every way.— Ron Waxman 🏳️🌈🇺🇦 (@RonWaxman) August 7, 2017 MLS GM Survey: Burns is Worst GM to Negotiate With OK, maybe you don't believe the first-hand reports or don't think they're important. Wins and losses are what really counts, right? OK, let's look at his record since he was named General Manager: 2012: 9-17-8, Missed Playoffs 2013: 14-11-9, Lost in Conference Semi-Finals 2014: 17-13-4, Lost in MLS Cup Finals 2015: 14-12-8, Lost in Knockout Round 2016: 11-14-9, Missed Playoffs 2017: 13-15-6, Missed Playoffs 2018: 0-1-0, TBD Total: 78-83-44 I mean, that's not great, but it's not horrible either, right? Here's another way to look at it... Mike Burns record as a GM when Jermaine Jones doesn't play: 58-76-37 The best thing that's ever happened to Mike Burns in his professional soccer career as an executive is that Don Garber didn't pull out the envelope that said "Chicago Fire" on it. Because if that happened, there's no MLS Cup run in 2014, and they probably don't make the playoffs in 2015, either. Mike Burns is really bad at his job.
