Wow. I have a decision to make now. I've been approached by Las Vegas Vandals to fill their vacant managerial position. They're sitting 7th in USL Pro-West, were predicted to win it.
Vandals were relegated from USL Pro last season. They've already gone through 2 managers in this save, each lasting less than a year.
I'm a little less than a week into the summer transfer window (5 games until the split), and I've got Detroit Arsenal sitting 14th (5 points clear of the drop), but I've just lost my linchpin central defender for 3-4 months with a torn hamstring.
Here's a side-by-side comparison:
