Welcome to the inaugural Instant Over Reaction, which is basically just an opportunity for you to rant, vent, speak your peace, ask your burning questions, and unload on a disappointing end to a long season.
FC Dallas lost. Portland won. The season is over. It was a disappointing last few games to say the least. FC Dallas lost any ability to put the ball into the back of the net or concentrate defensively to lock things down. The team looked like a mess.
Here’s a few bits to get you started:
Excising Lamah, Colman, and Figueroa would free up $1.65M in salary budget, even if they don't get a single transfer fee for any of them. For a more dramatic overhaul, they could sell Gruezo and roll his $731k + gobs of Garber bucks to fund new acquisitions. pic.twitter.com/p2A5T0aKsr— Ⓢⓣⓔⓥⓔ Ⓕⓔⓝⓝ (@StatHunting) October 29, 2018
At least the HOF looked pretty nice when I was in there.— SadFCDFans (@sadfcdfans) November 1, 2018
For Dallas, no creativity, no finishing, no trophy.— Sam Stejskal (@samstejskal) November 1, 2018
They were amazing with Mauro over the last three years. Without him, they’ve been totally average.
I hope that's the last shot Lamah ever takes for FCD.— Ⓢⓣⓔⓥⓔ Ⓕⓔⓝⓝ (@StatHunting) November 1, 2018
Imagine the alternate timeline for #FCDallas where Barrios and Urruti were sold last season. Does this team collapse like they did? How would this season have been different?— Nathan J. Hill (@nathanjhill) November 1, 2018
What would you add? Who do you hope never takes the field again for Dallas? Tell us how you really feel.
