"In trying to explain the sometimes unfair expectations on the head coach of D.C. United, I made critical comments of Colorado, New England, Real Salt Lake and the league."
Excuse me? What's the unfair expectation? To actually qualify for the playoffs? When more than half of the league does so? Or is it the expectation that we'll play the"attractive, attacking" style that we so obviously played this year (fire up the sarcasmeters!). The subtext here is what's really worrying though, because it suggests that Tommy might have a future with United.
Speaking of futures with United...Wicks goes under the knife and now joins Tino on the 4-6 months out injured shelf. Goffster proceeds to dangle the bait about Wicks' future with the club seeing as how he'll probably be out of action for pre-season. Sadly, I think we'll probably see him back (my complaints should be obvious to regular readers: poor decision making, the statue-pose on close-range finishes, the anger issues).
