    seems about right; maybe I would put RSL above us. We are going to need to hold on until the summer transfer window, and then add the one big piece that will put us in contention. We have the base of a great team. Ownership is going to have to put up or shut up if we are still in contention for the Cup and Shield come August

    Because the good ones are usually surprisingly on target?

    Oh, sorry, was that a rhetorical question? My bad.

    Yeah, but if we end up in the top three with Pause in the midfield Pausehater2001 will denounce the numbers because they won't be supporting his bias.

    I would like whatever you're smoking, because we won't come close to finishing in the top three. As for Pause the only position he's going to be playing is RB and he won't be starting at RB.

    To be fair to Ben, there was a point in about early June of last year that we'd have all said the same thing. Then we got Rolfe and were suddenly within spitting distance of (and really should have taken) first place in the East.

    Well it did get any better, it might of go alittle worse. Frankie has alot of work to do, to get this team better.....If would help if Andy would help him out abit, but I don't see that happening. So we will have to wait to July and hope we get players like Grazzini and Pardo (2011) and maybe just maybe we could make a run for the playoffs (that is if it's not to late by then).

    Still ranked 19 out of 19, not to surprised after a 4-1 lose at home to Chivas.....

    Also, notice the intro to the rankings..."We're pretty sure about the top two, and the bottom one"

    Ouch...

    What will be your excuse when we don't make the playoffs? Because the way we are playing we will be lucky not to finish dead last.

    some of the veteran European players thought he ran practices like an inexperienced manager.Which he was, so there may be some truth to it.

    That's right, I heard that. Ultimately I heard the Italians basically took over practice. I heard similar issues with Nowak, that he'd show up for 10 minutes and let the assistants run the show. That practice was an insignificant detail to him.

    Didn't Montreal also basically say that he was too "American"? They basically said they wanted to become the French/Euro version of Chivas...

    Now that is just low, calling them the French/Euro version of Chivas.

    They want to average 7,000 a game in attendance, make the playoffs once in their history and have multiple BigSoccer threads about the "failed experiment"?

    of the newChivas...you know, the one that is currently second in the West. While Montreal sits first in the East...

    Maybe we should start a xenophobic trend. But from where? Poland? Uruguay?
