After Saturday night's game I really can't contain my feelings on our coach Mr. Bob Bradley any longer. Game after game we encouter the same old problems that seem to never be spoken of by the coach, players and even us the fans. I'm still trying to figure out what makes Bob this coaching sensation. Is it purely his win loss record that drives him to the top of the U.S. coaching elite, if that holds true then Ron Newman should be king superior as he holds the record for wins. Certainly it can't be for coaching experience, as there are numerous coachs past and present whom have graced the touch line far longer then Bob. Or is this Hype purely based on a few good seasons as the former coach of the Fire. I thought watching him in action as our coach this year would help solidify it in my mind but to be truthful from watching him in action I'm even more clueless on why this guy has been hyped so much. His eye for talent is even somewhat questionable as well. Ricardo Clark has been a gem but after that one has to wonder again why people think that everything he touches is golden. I love Mike's tireless running up front and someday he could be a nice striker but that's a few years away so one can't truly comment on him. Leitch is nothing short of average and really doesn't posses the skills to become anything but just an average MLS defender. Kenny Arena's pick up stinks of soccer politics as that kid couldn't tackle your grandmother. Woly's addition has been somewhat questionable as well. The guy never stops trying and his heart is always on his sleeve and for that I'll always admire him but otherwise he has no touch and his finishing skills are simply horrid. Reagen and Leblanc are another pair who falls into the Leitch catagory of hopefully one day becomming just an average MLS player at best. Then you have players such as Galvan and Forchetti. Both players could make an impact on any of the other nine MLS teams wether it's in a starting role or as a sub. We however let them sit and rot only to play when there are no other options due to injury. Forchetti played very well in our time of need when Pope and Jolley went down..he handled the press like a veteran and even took the load of the blame on his back, when most of the fault wasn't purely his. Glavan has been given practically no time to let loose but in the seldom time he has been given one can see that there is bright footballer waiting to break out. Instead Galvan gets pushed away on the bench for mistake prone blundering midfielders like Richie Williams. Sure the midfield has quality in Lisi ,Amado and Ricardo but this is Bob the footballing genious , surely he can comprise a system that includes the likes of Galvan and Forchetti. The defense is the biggest problem in my mind. Sure we have probably the best two center backs in the league in Jolley and Pope but look to the outside of them and your scratching your head at everygame. Ziadie and Digi are simply rubbish and that's being nice. Ya they might have bags of speed but otherwise they posses nothing. Digi makes mistake after mistake , always telegraphing his passes and getting caught up field when he should be in a more reserved role. Craig too has speed but the kid can tackle or mark anyone if his life depended on it. He was one of the main reasons we lost Sat. night as he made Noonan look like superstar. If it's speed Bob so desperatly needs at the wing back position then why isn't he putting Edgar in...a nice pick up by Bob.. the kid has creativity and finess by the truck load. Forchetti too could be placed onto the otherside...imagine a backline of Forchetti-Pope-jolley-Edgar... sure would be tough to break that down. Ok so I have bashed his player aquisitions...again since Bob is this coaching guru..surely he could devise a plan that could bring everyone's attributes to the forfront. Sadly that couldn't be further from the truth. Our play in the pitch gets me so fustrated. It's that same old B.S. everytime and that's why teams are having their way with us because they know all we do is play it right up the middle and into the box. Other then when Amado has room to operate there is no creativity out there... no one EVER runs for each other trying to open up space. When do you guys see our players making runs for each other .. never. everyone just stacks the middle of the field and then stands around waiting for the ball to come to them, instead of making the ball come to them with going into free space. My other on field problem is why in world does this team never ever cross the ball from side to side...does Bob not know how to implore a training session on when and how to switch the field of play..everyone else in MLS does it too us, why can't we seem to manage it. If I'm Bob I'd be drilling these simple aspects of the game into their head untill they actually did it on the field...instead we get the same rubbish of.. play it through the middle and if thats not an option give it to Richie so he can push it back into our end of the field and then try it all over again. Makes no sense to me that this so-called footballing coaching guru can't seem to get his players to grasp the simple aspects of the game. Lastly... when is Bob actually going to get off his white arse and handle Clint like a man and tell him to shut up and play. Every game Clint has his two or three episodes where he has to belittle the Ref and tell him that he's not MLS quality. To be fair to Clint he's usually right but the way he handles it is all wrong. Clint needs to stop rolling on the ground all the time and he needs to put the same effort into scoring as he does belittling the refs....I'm not bashing Sir Clint he's been huge for us this year but imagine how much better he could be if his efforts were purely focused on simply playing...too bad our coach can't seem to manage that task either of getting Clint to play...yelling at the ref is the coach's job...then again it seems that our coach doesn't know what to do properly. Ok...call me every name in the book for bashing Bob..I'm off to take my Riddlen.
