Curtin, who took over midseason for the fired John Hackworth, has a lot of work ahead of him to turn the Union into a playoff team. He discusses some of the needs he looks to address this offseason, including acquiring an MLS-calibre striker.
Curtin also discusses the goalkeeping situation, which became a point of controversy after the signing of Algerian international goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi during the season.
