#1331686 Is Armas a good successor to Marsch?

Posted by Eleazar on Yesterday, 10:25 AM

when Marsch kept it the same wrt subs and not fielding extra defenders late, is that partly why we lost some late leads/couldn't hold leads? 


some deep philosophical stuff, best defense is a good offense, that sorta shit. we are where we are currently due to having the best defense period.

No changes, no suspensions due to YCs. 18 should be the same, unless you switch out White for Abang, I still think that's a bit early for that.

Saying BWP doesn't show up in the playoffs is harsh. It's more that a good team with time to prepare can shut down a one or two man attack, limiting BWPs looks to a spare few stabs against the run of play. 

that's basically what i saw in front of me for the away playoff game at MTL. he'll get goals if he gets the chances, but if he's limited to a few...he still has to bury them, or at least one of em.

he def brings the physical part of the game to the position. did some good work for us that one season. scored against Philly, assisted in the Hudson Derby, scored on the Cosmos. 


if it works out, phew.

ATL signed a DMid to replace the one they sold in Dec/Jan. TAM guy from Argentina.

Make it best XVIII, then! Starters plus 6 subs and GK!

DE did exactly what i'd prefer royer to do when royer has the ball and dribbles. enough with Royer's cut back on the right, DE makes the move, makes the defender look stupid, go to the endline and send in a strong weakfooted cross on the deck into the 6yd box.


but nobody was in the center fwd channel. DE is a trickster that can live off that play and rack up assists, but one of our guys has to be at the receiving end. maybe it ends up an own goal.

It comes down to how much money Red Bull is putting into scouting and how much they are willing to spend to get the guys they scout.

Which right now looks like $0.


Agreed. They've improved with regard to opening the check book and not going all 100% Billy Bean-cheapo/MoneyBall on us, but it does feel like they are deliberately not using all the available mechanisms/resources to make the team better.


open roster spots, unused allocation $ that expires. but we have holes in this lineup/roster. had the injuries not occurred, then standing pat and improving via backfilling the roster with RB2 promotions is fine. but that's not the situation currently. and it's necessary to fill these spots to prepare for the next yr, so that they don't have to rush and panic. acquire players to prevent roster concerns, not acquire players to react to roster concerns. disappointing to see that there'll always be a "Stand Pat" crowd in this fanbase. very small-time thinking.

if everyone wants Moreno in the mix, he's on a USL contract. they have to sign him mid season, like Beze last yr. and we're down to 1 spot on the roster, if we promote him. i'd rather import a player from elsewhere. i like moreno a lot, i've seen him a lot this yr. i don't think Moreno's a 9, like White.


DE scores great goals, but is not a great goalscorer. it's not amount of goals for him, i've noticed, but more "wow, now THAT was a goal". DE's a winger. if deployed there and plays against the nonplayoff teams in MLS, of which there are quite a few, he could thrive and eventually be the #3 winger on the team. 


if anyone can, go back and watch the DC game again. watch him and taxi on the left. DE even did some move on their Argy DP, Lucho Acosta.

Cincinnati is getting Adi for the USL 2018 stretch run. ingenious. they're coming up, they're getting a guy for next season and they upgraded BIG midseason. 


big ups to luke sassano.

Standing pat in this transfer window is going great so far. Just Andreas Ivan. Sure, we don't need a 3rd DP. Why should we?

Theres hope, Marsch never really gave him a shot there, but Armas already has. Other than the miss, I thought Etienne played well there. Hopefully, well see more.


the miss was GLARING, but he did seem to combine well on the flanks considering he's pretty much only seen time up top with the 1st team

I'm starting to get the feeling we are going to stand pat. Don't think that's the right move, but there has been zero chatter


that's fucking bullshit.

Dax should just shut the fuck up and learn don't raise your fucking hands to a fellow teammate. Once he learns that, maybe THEN and only THEN can the fucking words outta his mouth are worth listening to. What a fucking clown shoes fucking moment. Fucking joke of a captain.
