The team has lacked vision and identity for a while. Without a vision, an idea of how we get from where we are to the Cup, an idea of the missing pieces, there's no way to acquire them and no way to know who to get rid of.
They finally got rid of one of the "core" but as I mentioned last year...if your vision is a defensively responsible possession team, and that's your logic for dumping Semin...well there's another Russian you need to dump with him.
Otherwise, you need a vision that includes both of them, because if you're playing a style that suits 8, you're playing a style that makes Semin one of the most dangerous players in the league.
You (not personally, the team) also fired the best coach for that system.
