The team made the playoffs. But with the way 101 was for most of the home games, it might as well have been 1999 or 2009.

Last year I told them that I was cancelling my season tickets because they werent signing enough talent.

There was very little argument from them.

Fairly good odds that happens, I'd say.

not all talent develops as expected.  If we followed the bring in all the DPs Tyler would be riding the bench.

But again spend some real $$$ to bring in lots of young DPs and other talent.  

Tyler was a massive talent the moment he came to the first team.  Any DP(s) that would keep Tyler on the bench would have been amazing.

 

Were talking Cahill, Henry level.

Let's calm down here, no need to rewrite history even if we all love Tyler. Dax, who's certainly not a DP at the levels you mention, was doing a good enough job in a similar role the previous season.

You realize that that $340 cost us the opportunity to sign a South American NT player?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I think he was responding to the idea that bringing in DPs would be a bad thing because talented homegrown players like Tyler wouldn't get as clear of a chance to play. We're all at least a little sentimental towards homegrown players, but I agree with RedBullCola. Bottom line is the more talent the team has the better we'll be, even if its at the expense of some homegrown minutes.

I believe that my season ticket money drastically affects signings yes.

Tyler plays 3 maybe 4 positions. My point is that one DP would not keep a player like him on the bench.

If he was stuck on the bench it because were fielding a super team week in week out.

With the Red Bull price point, I'm having trouble telling if these are jokes or factual commentary about $350 affecting signings.


RED. BULL. OUT.

Atlanta signs a Mexican international winger on a FREE transfer.

 

We lose our DP winger.

 

Rinse, repeat.

which got us nothing for the first 16 years? 1996-2012.

2013 with the over the hill stars was great and then the young teams since then who brought us more than those stars. 


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

If only there was a balance between Tom Barlow and a 40 year old looking for a paycheck.

What a shame that there are no soccer players who meet that description.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.
