Scrap the 4-3-3, FS had no width or numbers on the attack. Need more speed and size on D. Also need to push back 4 up and use the trap. FS conceded way too much space. Bonner was decent but no comparison to top half of Sunflower League. Could be a long season if massive changes are not made.

Yikes! I was wondering what happened. I have heard such positive things about the new coach. With both boys soccer teams in town having new coaches, you would think there would have been a fall sports preview of the teams...maybe I missed it.

Coach Barah is a great coach, and there is only so much a coach can do because soccer is a PLAYERS sport. The players make all the decisions on the field and the coach can't do much about it. Its not like football where there are set plays for everything. Honestly the players are the only ones that can make a difference, not the coaches.
