In the last regular season presser of the season, John Hackworth talks about who wears the armband in place of Brian Carroll this week. He acknowledged how sharp the reporters were for asking the same questions that we did yesterday, Hackworth also taps Jeff Parke and Conor Casey as front runners for the armband.
Interestingly enough one of the options was to move Amobi Okugo up into his place. Hack also mentioned that he could not replace him at all. He also said the he would play the "opposite" of conservative against Sporting Kansas City.
Hackworth said that he has been in "tighter places" as a coach under Bob Bradley, and that they have worked out. He stumbles over announcing that " Keon's situation is such that he isn't even training and won't be available this week".
Coach Hackworth points to four separate incidents over the course of this season that he asserts would have the Union "fighting for the supporters shield not the last playoff spot".
He takes a few moments to talk about Chris Albright and assures the reporters that the club will "dod all they can to acknowledge him".
