Sporting Kansas City extends contract for manager and technical director Peter Vermes

Sporting Kansas City announced today the extension of Peter Vermes’ contract as manager and technical director of the club through the 2017 MLS season.

http://www.sportingkc.com/news/2013/...r-peter-vermes



“What's been important for us is continuity on and off the field and this decision allows us to keep that continuity in place for the foreseeable future,” Sporting Club CEO Robb Heineman said. “We love that Peter has always been a long-term thinker and I believe the building blocks around turning this into a great organization long-term are in place. Having another four years to advance this cause is going to be very valuable to the team. We love that Peter has the commitment that he has to this city, this organization and to the development of the players.”

“We have an incredible ownership group. Their vision and follow-thru on all the initiatives they bring to this organization is incredible,” Vermes said. “Their passion for what this club is and for making it happen is the reason we sit here today as one of the best organizations in Major League Soccer. I'm excited to be a part of it and to continue helping to grow this organization. It's a proud moment for me.”

Vermes has overseen all soccer operations for the club since being named technical director in November 2006 and is the longest tenured technical director in MLS. In 2009, Vermes became the team’s manager and his .557 winning percentage over five seasons is the best in team history and sixth best all-time among MLS coaches with a minimum of one full season on the sidelines.

He has led Sporting Kansas City to first place finishes in the Eastern Conference each of the past two years and currently has the club in contention for the Supporters’ Shield with a four-point lead atop the East in 2013. Under Vermes direction, Sporting Kansas City claimed the team’s first trophy in eight years with the 2012 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup championship and qualified to represent Major League Soccer in the 2013-14 CONCACAF Champions League.

An MLS Coach of the Year finalist in 2011 and 2012, Vermes was selected to lead the MLS Generation adidas tour in 2011 to the Netherlands and will serve as the head coach for the MLS All-Stars against Italy’s AS Roma during the 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game at Sporting Park on July 31.

Vermes’ distinguished playing career included 67 appearances for the U.S. Men’s National Team as he represented the United States at the 1988 Olympics and 1990 FIFA World Cup. He became the first American to play in the first divisions of Hungary and Holland, while also spending four seasons in the Spanish second division before returning for Major League Soccer’s inaugural season in 1996. In seven MLS seasons, he started 208 of his 209 appearances in MLS competition (including playoffs) with 11 goals and 19 assists, and reached the postseason in all seven campaigns.

Vermes arrived in Kansas City ahead of the historic 2000 season, helping lead the club to the Supporters Shield and MLS Cup double and earning MLS All-Star, Best XI and Defender of the Year honors. He retired following the 2002 season, his third in Kansas City, and was elected into the National Soccer Hall of Fame on the Veteran ballot earlier

If a player wants to break away early as soon as his team takes possession or in anticipation of his team taking possession that would make it much more exciting to see long pass attempts. I see no reason how that would effect the flow of the game negatively.

So a player runs off towards the opponent goal. There are now three possibilities. His team doesn't get the ball as expected, his team gets it and launches it to him and defense has to you know, play defense and get back, or his team just chooses hold on to the ball and move it up the field under more control. How is that bad for flow?

So Zach, what do you think of the signing? I've always been a little pessimistic about Vermes game management, but hopefully there is something there I'm not seeing.

The rule encourages organized targeted attacks instead of boot ball.

I think it is funny you feel like a rule that isn't at all needed would be part of a game played by so many for so long. Like...it hasn't been thought through.

Oh wait no offsides? Yea. Nobody ever considered it.

Though I'm not an expert at soccer strategy, my assumption is that offensive players would just camp out right next to the goal the entire time, and the approach would shift from passing and control to dumping the ball in from everywhere and hoping that your guys get there first. It would basically be nothing but corner kicks (in terms of a scramble for the ball) all the time.

It might be more exciting in some ways, but a ton of the strategy would be lost.

It is great...PV is more than a coach he has built the whole program from the top down making a vertical system that all plays the same style to get top talent from around the midwest to play ball in their academy.

There are two full time senior USMNT and 5 or 6 internationals or get regular duty not to mention the guys who he has helped develop that have gone on to bigger things all while keeping SKC as one of the best teams in the league.

I hear the criticism on the in game stuff but I think it is overblown and lately it has been working out real well.

Also, who would he be replaced with?

The only way soccer would be "better" is if it didn't exist.

I'd rather be stuck in traffic on the 405 for three hours than be forced to watch (and listen to announcers) a soccer game.

I find it hilarious that everyone is making fun of soccer. It's obvious that I love american sports, but everyone here making fun of soccer just enhances the american stereotypes. Its funny when my Aussie friends are making fun of Gridiron/Americans in general etc. I find myself defending my favorite sport and the country it comes from, but you guys are seriously making it difficult to believe what I'm saying. No wonder the rest of the world thinks what it thinks.

As for the actual news. I can't be bothered reading through all 100+ posts, Zach, what's you opinion on the extension?
