BearcatSA Posted June 19, 2005 Share Posted June 19, 2005 quote:Originally posted by James It's pretty obvious that it wasn't the right team to send. It never really did have the same feel or confidence that we had the last time around. The results leading up should have been ringing some bells. Mitchell blew it, man. Hey, I know we just went 0-2-1 and out so I'm arguing from a less than desirable position, but didn't this squad win three consecutive matches in a qualifying tournament hosted by a Central American country? Even in light of the adverse friendly warm up results prior to the WYC, I don't know what you could do with the player pool he choose to take to Holland. Coaches' decisions are like players' performances on match day and they should always be critiqued. If Mitchell "blew it" with his lineup, tactics, or substitutionsduring the games, I could see your arguments, but I'm not sure that you could say the same about the squad he selected. I'm also not sure what you mean by "last time around." Are you referring to the qualifying group or the 2003 WYC? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
