i don't know whether the club is looking to boot ronnie or not. all i know is my opinion of our players vs his opinion of our players just don't match up. His strategies and tactics don't make sense (e.g. starting 8 defensive players (with some out of position) vs orlando in a brand new formation). I get that there are growing pains with any new coach change. That's just how it is. But so far, what i've seen from Ronnie is someone who has a lot of ideas but none that are truly good and a pretty poor ability to evaluate players while watching tape and training. It's mind boggling why he makes the decisions he does and doesn't even use the subs we have for this tournament.

I'm more than willing to give him a shot, but my hopes are not high. When we struggled in 2018 and into 2019, I was never on the DomeOut train. I saw what he was trying to do and I knew it would take time. I just don't see it with Ronnie. Perhaps his tactics are just too high level for my feeble non-pro mind to understand...

It would make sense the short leash considering who we brought in as assistants, etc. where we all speculated that "getting rid of Deila really would not be tough at all"

when I posted that, we had scored one goal ALL SEASON
I understand that, but in a normal season you would never make such rash judgements after only two games. We have now played 4 games in our restart, and on the fourth game we looked like the normal NYCFC again. Sometimes teams just start slowly.

Counterpoint: how long did Atlanta give Frank de Boer?
Honestly i was not familiar with the guy's coaching career prior to the ATL signing, but holy crap, reading his wiki page.... dude was sacked everywhere he's been in short order..... why did i get this sense that ATL had some kind of stud coach hire,. Whoever was behind that hype train did a good job.

idk, everything I read from the day he was hired was "meh'... similar to what I'm seeing with Ronny... Which isn't exactly something you'd want to see is consistent between places someone's been. I'm willing to give him more time, but if it's so consistent like it is with De Boer...

Honestly at this point I'd just say let's give cushing a chance sooner rather than later

In some big leagues (not all) the importance of the DoF has grown bigger and bigger, and you can change the head coach even a couple of times a year if things go badly wrong. This happens a lot in Bundesliga.
Not in MLS, where you can pick players from two shelves, the one with overripe fruit and the other with the raw. Those between are few and far between (type Ring, Tinnerholm, and players like Atlanta’s Gressel). Raw diamonds are quickly lost.
That means the importance of the head coach’s abilities is still huge in this league. It appeared that after a shaky start, Domè was definitely up to the task. I’m pretty sure Deila is not.
