He's upped the team's pace & improved the tactical nature of our team too. No longer do we see the constant hit & run counters from the Arena & Bradley teams. JK has gotten everyone, I mean everyone play at a top level.
JK deserves every ounce of credit he's getting especially considering the early criticism but we also have better players now.
Jozy, Mikey, EJ, have grown astronomically since Bob's tenure.
Fabian, Jones, Besler, Zusi all quality players, obviously the current depth and youngsters too.
Bob and to a lesser extent Bruce will forever be criticized but they did OK to very good with what they had. Different eras.
