#1363812 The Coronavirus Thread

Posted by Mynameisfutbol on 16 March 2020 - 05:43 PM

Shame on Cuomo, Phil Murphy and Ned Lamont for effectively shutting down every restaurant in the tri-state area.

Think of the hundreds of thousands of people (and lots off the books) going home tonight from their jobs and waking up tomorrow without a source of income or livelihood. Why ruin the economy and lives of everyone over a miniscule portion of the population that already is self-quarantining? I hope they all recover -- but fuck, talk about an overreaction.

I was at one of my local bars this afternoon and you could cut the tension with a knife. All the workers were scared about their future.

Dude! Could you be any denser than a cork?


The reason for such drastic measures is to keep that so called minuscule percentage of the the population to those numbers! What we do not want to do is increase those figures. No-one is saying that it does not suck that a large segment of the population go from paycheck to paycheck and this will affect their livelihood, but do you also want to add a disease on top of it?


One more thing, you are being so disdainful towards those with a higher change of infection, let's see what your tune would be if one of your loved ones if affected and it stops being just another minuscule statistic.

#1362805 Kemar sold

People seem to forget that Kemar had to trial with us and it took him at least a full year to become the top left back in the league. Give the new kid some time please, it is unfair to compare him to Taxi after his first MLS game

I find it fascinating that one could be a soccer fan, or even a sports fan in general, live literally next door to a venue, and never attend a single game. 
It absolutely blows my mind, especially considering how affordable it is. 

Used to live a stone throw away from Little Italy and never ate there, and I live food

So, there

good for them, bad for us

That is a downside of having good players... Can't have it both ways

Mearas distribution has always been better than Robles, which is important if you want to build quickly from the back. Something that always drove me nuts about Luis was him getting the ball passed back and instead of playing out with his back line, he would wave everyone up the field and then boot the ball resulting on a loss of possession.

That and crosses...

Thoughtful and considered leadership does not mean instructing your underlings to get business done for the sake of doing something. Doing something simply for the sake of doing it because it might make some fans happy in the near term, is the very definition of bad management. Might as well sell the team to James Dolan. 

And get Isiah Thomas as GM

#1361974 Some people remember Petke firing

Posted by Mynameisfutbol on 21 February 2020 - 12:02 PM

For whatever reason, this hasn't been reported on, or the Red Bulls did a great job of keeping the lid on the real reasons for Petke's firing.  But I'm convinced it was more than just thinking Petke wasn't a great manager. 

In the industry, some of the details of termination never see the light of day. As an example, we still do not know the real cause of the firings of Richie and Des days prior to the start of the season. There has been plenty of theories and rumors but nothing concrete. And if I am not wrong, neither one of them worked for another MLS institution after that.

The folks at MLS Extra time podcast have a fine discussion about the whole BWP situation going to LAFC. Worth a listen. I hope it really works for him out West and I am looking forwards to see him return to RB arena

To go into the season without a proven striker is absolute nonsense.

We went into last season with a proven striker who had stopped scoring, and gets hurt for a long period of time on top of it. Not much better

So in other words, BWP contributes reliable +10 goals each season, which will now go to LAFC, with nothing in return for us!

BWP only had like 2 goals since the fall in 2018. How much do you want to pay for that kind of productivity?

I for once have to agree with the OP. Metro was not a panacea and you could seriously say it was a bigger shit show than what we have with RB.

I understand people gave issues with the soda can company being the new owners and blah blah blah blah, but just thankful that it is not a tampon companys logo on our jerseys

The folks at the Total Soccer Show go into detail about the work of Thelwell and what RBNY fans should expect. Darry Grove thinks we should be very excited.

So the question is who orchestrated this move. If it was a mandate from Ralf it would go against all beliefs here that the mothership is detached and does not care about the NY team

Always wondered why Blake played that game but Taxi was nowhere to be found...
