Wow. The team is the laughingstock of MLS, which takes some doing, and he's calling it all "baloney"? The team is a dumpster fire of in-fighting, anger, confusion and dysfunction. It is embarrassing to care about this team once again.

You'd think he'd start with acknowledging the reality of the situation and rationale behind some of the personnel changes.

Shalrie is a beloved, legendary figure among the supporters - and you just fire him and don't think you need to give anyone an explanation?

100% if this happened to, say, Jason Varitek, they'd burn Fenway to the ground for an answer.

Onalfo seems to be very much in love with himself. And "I decided"? YOU decided? I don't think so, Bubba.

They’re all nice words until the final whistle. I admire Onalfo’s attitude in the face of this “adversity,” as he calls it. If he is auditioning for Sporting Director, then these next seven games and the playoffs will be a big part of the evidence to weigh his merits.

It’s incredible to think about what the worries and aims were at the start of 2023 and where we are on September 13.
