    I would support this, but has he actually been fired by Miami?

    EDIT: it's fresh off the press - he's out at Miami.

    He was today for Neville.

    I would take him. He is better than all the other names mentioned and has a great track record.

    I would take him too. Donít blame him Iím the slightest for Miamiís first year performance.

    Heíd be a good manager with our roster. More pragmatic than Vanney but not outright defensive by any means.

    I thought he did well considering that team not being able to score. Yeah there wee 10 teams in the playoffs from the east but they lost a bunch of 1 goal matches and they're a far cry from year 1 Minnesota or every year Cinci.

    I dunno if Diego Alonso wants to manage in MLS anymore though.

    Apparently he had a end of season meeting with the ownership which went so bad that Alonso thought he got sacked and told a bunch of staff. Inter Miami ownership said he wasn't fired. Then today Diego Alonso 'mutually terminated'.

    lol

    I'd be totally ok with Diego Alonso though. Certainly he's got a better resume than the names being pandered around now

    I like Diego Alonso much more than Armas or Olsen.

    I'm assuming he will go to DC United if he doesn't mind low pay just to get some first team mangerial experience. Pinedo & Armas apparently both walked on DC for what is presumed to be low wage offers. They're notorious cheapskates so not only will the manager get low pay (Olsen was on $400K), they will also not give a lot of money to build the roster.

    Olsen has been gone since October 8th, they've managed nothing in 2 months since then, and they've already stolen our patented "2 weeks" maneuvre https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2020/...next-two-weeks . In the end, I will laugh if they just re-hire Olsen and I actually saw that rumored as he is, because it's DCU, on their candidate list.

    Replying to
    @SoccerInsider
    Ben Olsen has begun DCU front-office work in an advisory role, Levien said. Olsen did interview for Toronto job, but he's not a finalist. Long friendship with GM Ali Curtis led to that. I don't have any inside knowledge at TFC, but I wouldn't be surprised if Chris Armas is hired

    I take the first bit as true, about Olsen.

    I doubt its Armas.

    I agree if it was Armas it would be done by now

    Considering ownership quickly replaced Alonso with Phil Neville, I'm going to assume the shit-show aspect of the season end meeting was coming in from the ownership side. They seem to be out of touch given that absurd appointment.

    As for Olsen, Levien said he’s “already advising us on soccer-related decisions” in a still-developing front-office role, including weighing in on the coaching search and the construction of the club’s training facility. According to Washington Post's Steve Goff, Olsen reportedly interviewed for the Toronto FC coaching position, but is not considered a finalist. MLSsoccer.com reports Armas also had multiple interviews about the Toronto FC vacancy.

    I would think whoever it is will be announced (or atleast leaked by the media) this week.

    So, there are some foreign twitter accounts either leeching off Rollins reports or independently reporting that Vieira could be TFC's manager.

    I appreciate KJ and all but if I recall correctly there has been at least one instance where he was proved wrong and rather than admit fault he pointed to some tiny technicality. Something like ďwell the contract wasnít out when I tweeted so the deal wasnít imminent although it eventually happenedĒ

    Anyway, based on everything Iíve heard so far Iíd be surprised if itís Viera.

    I would probably ask Cheyrou first if we were going that route. In fact, not sure why he hasnít had his name floated already.

    I do worry with certain coaching candidates, MLS experience or not, the world they come from football wise is too far away from the low end nature of MLS. The players just cannot do what they ask so they get disappointed and quit.

    I seem to recall his family like Canada but prefer France - Victor is another matter. Worth a punt as an assistant.

    The three finalists Steve Cherubdolo, steve Caldwell, and Chris Armas.
    Expect the coach to be one of these three

    Interesting, hadn't considered Caldwell. Not exactly a murderers' row.

    Caldwell seems so out of touch just commenting on a game, let alone managing.
