So… NOW What?

News came out last night/this morning about the dismissal of Diego Gutierrez and Alecko Eskandarian from their positions as Director of Scouring South Amer… er I mean Scouting, and Youth Technical Director, respectively.  This move is curious, given that the transfer window opens two weeks from today.  Logic would suggest that this is merely a completion of the overhaul that began with Peter Nowak’s departure, and with the new perspective on the current team, a change was needed in the perspective of the club’s future.

My speculation on the move is that the organization has made relationships with the people Gutierrez dealt with and they can use someone with contacts in another region of the soccer world.  Or, since Gutierrez and Eskandarian both had ties to Nowak, maybe they just wanted to move on, as well.  They very well could have been using their positions as stepping stones to get bigger positions.

Regardless of the speculation, the message is clear that what has happened with this team this season is not good enough, and they need to make changes.  All fans should be on-board with this, and it will be up to whoever takes on that position to keep the team going in the right direction.  Or else, we’ll demand his removal, too.
