What They're Saying: Earnie Stewart

“There’s a structure in place. I think it’s an organization that still needs to grow from a soccer side. But I think there’s an identity. I think there’s a style of play.

And now that it’s in place, it makes it probably a little bit easier for the next person coming in.”
