    Fuck it. I am set to detonate even having heard the manager’s mea culpa post game.
    .
    You were ‘rescued’ by a hungry kid.
    .
    If you haven’t figured it out by now inside that tight knit circle of yours —you have a player complacency problem directly responsible for this DREK.
    .
    So I’m going to make this simple for your entire organization to understand from the bottom -up to the top -including the newly contracted manager & the newly contracted general manager… et al 2021. All of you. ….
    .
    It. Is. Unacceptable….
    ….that so many of these players KNOW their spot on the field is safe. They are complacent and therefore playing thusly as evidenced by the multitude of errant passes, touches, thinking and simplest of soccer execution —-when not even under pressure —-which finally dawned on me in the 50th minute tonight.
    Every last one of you ….this is an UNACCEPTABLE standard the last 5 or 6 weeks. I’ve been magnanimous and patient. I’ve argued on your behalf. That’s over. Just the truth.
    .
    Fix it. Now.
    .
    Just
    Play
    Well.
