Same As The Old Coach?
Today brings confirmation that Curt Onalfo will be DC United's new head coach. Back in August when Kansas City fired him, I wrote:
Curt never struck me as that bad, and his team's issues seem more to do with the players available this year, but what do I know?
The Wizards did not exactly shine after Curt was shown the door. However, it seems instructive that when Curt started at KC he announced that the team would play exciting, attractive soccer . . . and look where it got them. And what per chance did Onalfo tell Goff in his first interview after the announcement that he is coming to DC was made?
Onalfo's aim is to play "beautiful, attacking, quick soccer," he said.
Oh, great. Moreover, Onalfo was not, by all accounts, United's first choice, that "honor" befalling someone who would rather manage a team called the "Zips." So can the second-choice United alum turn this franchise around?
