"I know there's anxiety. Look, I feel it, too," McCullers told MLSsoccer.com. "But I'm optimistic it is going to come together soon."
Earlier this week Mark McCullers, Crew President and General Manager, spoke with Craig Merz of MLSsoccer.com and (along with the above statement) made notably bold predictions for the 2013 Columbus Crew season.
It goes on … coming together?
"If the scenarios we're working on get completed, I definitely believe we are going to make the playoffs and I believe we are a team that can win the Eastern Conference championship," McCullers said.
1st in the 2013 Eastern Conference? Whoa, man. Huge! Anything else?
"Obviously, if we can do that then the road to MLS Cup could come through Columbus. The MLS Cup could be in Columbus. I believe we're going to have that caliber of team. I really do."
Massive confidence coming from from the highest ranking Crew employee in Columbus, Ohio. Season starts 10:30 PM EST March 2nd at the Home Depot Center vs. Chivas USA.
