Hiring is simple ...

Can he coach?
Can he recruit?
Can he get players to the next level?

HE wasn't in final 2 though. I think recruiting is the most important thing in soccer. Everyone wanted head coaching experience, I thought that was not a top priority. That's why he or Miller would have been my top 2.

Yeah that Red Bull “unique pressing style” It was, yet again, and absolute failure in the playoffs.

That pressing style is highly effective at the college level. Maryland has followed this style pretty effectively.

At the pro level, that pressing style has won the regular season league title twice and advanced to the semifinals of the Champions League. So not sure that logic holds.

I guess you didn't watch the game. Armas decided to NOT play that style in game 1 in Atlanta, and to bunker and counter instead. Terrible coaching decision. Armas was pitifully out-coached in the ATL series.

Don’t see a championship trophy and they got humiliated in the playoffs this year.

Didn’t say I would be against the hiring Aquista , by the way, just pointing out that to their fans they were a big disappointment once again.

Not sure that losing to the team that had the second most points in MLS history and the highest payroll ever is a "big disappointment." A letdown for sure but I don't think RBNY is built for the postseason.

Point remains that the press can be effective at this level.

But, RU isn't going this direction.
