Discussion in 'MLS: News & Analysis' started by The Legend, Dec 2, 2004.
Narrowed list came out last night: http://www.coloradorapids.com/News/newsdetails.asp?ID=828
If their "narrowed" list is comprised of six people, I wonder how many they started with.
Damn it. I thought I interviewed pretty well.
Butch Davis didn't make the list?
Fernando Clavijo, I have met him and believe in his approach to soccer. He's Uruguayian and well he has a Uruguayian look at soccer. Which isn't as far off from The USA or MLS approch... MLS experience, as a coach and assistant.. Did we'll at the Revs, but then tanked the following year... But he understands the American player and knows how to handle the SI's pretty well.
JUAN CARLOS OSORIO, (MY PICK) Was at the Metro"stars" for one season... But with EPL expereince and a South American flavor, he might do well..
Juan Carlos Osorio is the guy Metro should have gotten....If the rest of the league knows what great judge of talent the MFO is, there really ought to be no contest on who they should pick.....
Still, it'd be a titanic struggle of turning Colorado around....sort of like trying to turn the Italy NT into Barcelona FC
Next time, leave the smokes at home.
Forget Butch Davis: I'm surprised Urban Meyer is not on the list. It seems he is on the short list for almost all coaching vacancies.
Oops, sorry. Wrong sport. Carry on...
Clavijo may be a saint of a man....but hiring him would be tantamount to hiring Rongen.
He left MLS a loser. When you have Schmid out there and assistants from successful teams - why go after a coach who left his last job on the downs?
Yes he has something to prove and he might be successful, but I would go after a previously successful coach or an asst. from a winning team.
Course, Dallas did that and we got Mike Jefferies. So who knows?
