Osorio gives up, embarrassed by Rapids 4:0
July 25, 2009

Colorado New York

07.25.09 · League

In 1999, Bora Milutinovic's Metro endured the worst winless streak in league history. 12 straight games without a win; the horror which we never thought would be matched. Oh, how foolish we were.

Tonight, Juan Carlos Osorio wrote his name into the recordbook next to Bora by leading Metro to a 12th straight winless match (in league play; in all competitions, it's 13, also matching the 1999 ineptitude).

But when you come into the match sporting a 4-5-1, a 4-5-1 that has failed time and time again, a 4-5-1 that only our idiotic tactical genius could comprehend, what the hell do you expect? Seriously, what the hell was Osorio's plan? Get a road point? As. If.

Colorado opened the scoring five minutes into the match through Jacob Peterson. Sinisa Ubiparipovic got a red card just before halftime. Pat Noonan doubled the lead a minute into the second half. 59 minutes into the match, Osorio quit on the game by taking out Juan Pablo Angel, and two minute later, Nick LaBrocca made it 3:0. Mehdi Ballouchy got the fourth on a direct free kick in the 67th.

Leo Krupnik and Bouna Coundoul, the latter recovering from ankle surgery, but deemed healthy enough to start by former strength and conditioning coach Osorio, made their Metro debuts. Krupnik was absolutely atrocious.

Seriously... what has to be done for these clowns to be fired? 15 games without a win? 20? Because it's gonna get there...

Lineup: Coundoul, Pacheco, Krupnik, Petke, Hall, Sassano, Ubiparipovic, Rojas, Richards, Kandji, Angel. Subs: Zimmerman, Wolyniec, Stammler.
