Hold on to your wallets! The King is back in town to save soccer. Let’s see if some of his peeps follow him like they did when he got booted to Atlanta! When will people ever wake up. Best of luck to Alliance—they are going to need it!

Woe I would not have guessed this pick. He has coached at a lot of places, often not long term.
* surprising after seeing Alliance's email about lowering costs and not having a DOC that runs separate camps.
* surprising (or maybe not) that with the openings at KHA/CUP/DA, his old pals didn't hire him
* a legend in own mind ... he is a very good coach

I believe he is a better developer and coach than he is a leader of a organization. He has been to about 22 different places it seems in the past 5 years. Red flag there, no? Wish him the best though.
