Should former Chivas USA enforcer Jesse Marsch be the coach of the new Los Angeles Major League Soccer franchise?

The Golden Age for defunct MLS club Chivas USA was the trio of seasons it advanced to the playoffs back when the likes of hard-nosed Jesse Marsch patrolled the midfield, now EPL goalkeeper Brad Guzan was between the sticks and Cuban defector Maykel Galindo was banging in the goals for the Goats.

Marsch went on to an abbreviated coaching career for the expansion Montreal impact, but didn’t appear to get a fair shake from management.

If the new LA MLS club wants passion and commitment it could do a lot worse than Marsch, who was all about that during his inspirational Chivas USA career.

Full disclosure: Founder of Chivas USA fan group Black Army John Sadante made the suggestion during a conversation we had Sunday ahead of Thursday’s announcement about the MLS replacement for Chivas USA.

Anyone willing to kick a little butt is likely to inspire crowds like Chivas USA once saw back in the club’s Preki-led heyday. What do you think?
