    The losses of Grazzini and Pappa don’t seem as bad in retrospect when you consider-

    a) Grazzini had never stayed anywhere more than 1.5 years and seems just as at fault as management

    b) Pappa was leaving in half a year anyway

    c) Alex+Flaco+all the other signings since the start of the season (Arne, Berry, Rolfe, etc.) are net-better than what they had before.

    It took FRANK about one calendar year to get the hang of this MLS coaching thing. While the jury is still out to be certain, he is looking a little like JASON KREIS at the moment: a guy who COULD have been fired, but patience proved him more than compotent.
    His adept handling of the astonishing roster turnover is admirable to say the least.
    Go FIRE!

    Alex needs to play more to fill the creative void left by Magico.

    Pause should be a sub or a Right Back.
