#1351197 Etienne tweets about snakes... then gets loaned out

Derrick is gonna be beloved here forever and he was capable of great moments. He always felt like a square peg in a round hole in our system. It sucks that there was never an attempt to try and make the system better fit him. We chew players up and spit them out and it sucks. Derrick won us a Shield. It shoulda been (and lets face it, probably will be soon) Andy Ivan.

This is great, I hate everyone in this bracket. 

#1316259 Versatile center/left back signed!

Posted by irishstevenj on 04 January 2018 - 07:43 PM

With the amt of defenders we have I guess we r going with the 5 man back line


Also two of our defenders are going to Russia.

It looks like some combo of Rimando, Beckerman, Allen, Plata and Rusnak will be out. 

#1298251 2017 Schedule

Posted by irishstevenj on 17 March 2017 - 02:16 AM

Looks like we may get some competition for MSG slots. Interested to see who gets priority this year or in the future. Money talks. Cosmos now have it. Red Bull won't spend it.


There is no way on the planet the Cosmos are "in competition" for spots on MSG. They will be placed below us on the totem pole, same as the Liberty. In addition to Cosmos being in a lower league, the RBNY schedule on MSG is already set.


The "Red Bull doesn't spend on anything" narrative works in some places but in others it just leads to insanely wrong takes, especially when MSG pays a rights fee to air RBNY games and we have no knowledge of whether this is anything other than a time-share between Cosmos/MSG or even a time buy by the Cosmos from MSG/Tribune. I'd bet a decent amount of money they're buying time for that Channel 11 game.

Nick Rimando being in the team is worth noting.

Can he take a pen?

Never really was a thing. Just a brief moment in time. I always laugh when I remember Viking Army named themselves after players on the roster and the coach. How long was that ever going to last? Shows they had no idea what they were even supporting, and is still one of the most ridiculous names out there.


This seems unnecessarily petty.

I think Aaron Long is a player. Found money, to be honest. Completed his passes, didn't get us killed. I wasn't a believer but I think he has a chance to stick even when Perrinelle and Baah are fully fit. 


Ultimately, a missed PK, a substitute LB being ineffective defending a set piece and a couple late misses and you're stuck at 1-1. 


A better team will be suiting up next Thursday.

It would appear our man goes by the name Amir instead. And that we've got him.

It's so funny. They tried so hard to kill Metro for so many years. So many people told me (and others) to stop using it. Now it's the punchline to their own ad campaign.


Metro will never die.


Now that there's an actual team within the boundaries of NYC, suddenly representing an entire metropolitan area got super important.

Don't think so.  

Unless Kemar becomes fit/available next week lineup we saw today with Long and Bilyeu is probably what we will see.  We will see if it's good enough. 

Lawrence is with Jamaica right now, so that would suggest his injury was just a knock.
