If the job of a coach is to undermine the confidence of his players, then Scott Gordon is doing a great job. He disses Joey Mac while lamenting the loss of DP. He's taking a page from the managerial style of Willie Randolph and I hope that he meets the same fate that WIllie did.

If Scott Gordon thinks that DP would have made a bit of difference to the ridiculous system he plays, he's in for a big surprise.

ANd he's happy with the play of Josh Bailey? Filatov had more goals yesterday than Bailey has in the entire season.

Take a look at some of his gems over on the Ranger forum. The queer from Quogue knows nothing of the game. Don't bother.
