#1376886 Will (when) we sign new players?

Posted by Grelladinho on 31 December 2020 - 12:42 PM

Could be quite a sleep!
Will you still post on MF??

I probably would but I don't post much anymore as is.

I just miss the teams that had exciting skill players, even on the level of Grella and Sam. Something fun to watch.

Hopefully Struber does better than Armas and gives the fans a more exciting product on the field.


#1376710 BWP signs with LAFC, then Columbus

Posted by Grelladinho on 23 December 2020 - 04:12 PM

BWP getting signed by Columbus pretty much debunks the "father time is undefeated" and "he's washed up" arguments that people were trying to make on this website prior to the start of last season.

BWP goes from one championship-caliber team to another.

There's no reason he couldn't have been a backup at Red Bull or retired here. He's still better than Barlow and White.


#1376194 Scraping the barrel looking for players who will play for cheap

Posted by Grelladinho on 13 December 2020 - 07:38 AM

its not grelladinho literally said he doesnt want yearwood signings who are looking to launch to Europe so he wants older established players with no resale values. Yet Columbus biggest names are nagbe and zardes. Zeke rayan is not a big name in any way shape or form. When you say you want a big name that has implication and its not guys like Zelaryan

Big names was the wrong term for me to use here. I meant prominent players within MLS.

Anyone who is an avid watcher of the league knows that Zardes, Zelarayan, Santos (if he played), Ruidiaz, Lodiero etc. are some of the better talents league wide. Same with guys like Valeri, Rossi, Pozuelo, Pryzybylko, Gil, Bou, Quintero....these guys aren't huge in a name sense like Higuain or Chicharito but they are huge within MLS.

Red Bull has nobody like that. I wouldn't put Kaku and Royer near that group anymore.

I kind of got used to not going to games and tbh if this team doesn't get a mls best xi caliber attacker I might axe my season ticket.

There's just no reason to make the effort to go to games if the club continues to be cheap and act as a farm team for European leagues. Tom Barlow and Dru Yearwood are not going to put butts in seats.

Watching the game tonight it's almost like watching another league...two teams with big name, big money signings going at it. Just a different level than the crap that Red Bull is trying to sell to this fan base.

#1370894 ARMAS GONE!

Posted by Grelladinho on 04 September 2020 - 08:31 AM

damn apparently they kicked out CJ Sapong as well. Cleaning house. I wonder who the interim coach will be? Seeing as we have a game in 2 days....maybe Wolyniec?

We had CJ Sapong in the organization?!?! Why did they not play him as striker then

😉


#1370161 MLS games postponed today

Posted by Grelladinho on 27 August 2020 - 06:34 AM

Mark Anthony Kaye of LAFC now accusing Orlando City players of caring more about getting 3 points from their win against Nashville last night than the BLM movement.

https://mobile.twitt...837509753929730

However, it looks like (per Nashville player/coach statements) that they shut their phones off before kickoff to focus on playing, and therefore were not aware of the other games being postponed. So they took the field.

Also Steven Goff says not everyone was on board with not playing last night:

Total disarray in MLS...




#1369119 Some fans are back

Posted by Grelladinho on 13 August 2020 - 04:16 PM

One players thoughts on how some fans chose to exercise their 1st Amendment rights:

https://www.mlssocce...-dallas-players

The anthem takes on a different meaning for everyone.

If Reggie wants to kneel, that's fine.

If fans want to boo because they don't like it and have another view of the anthem and what it represents, that's fine as well.

For him to say it's "disgusting" though -- he's completely missing the mark. Reggie Cannon doesn't get to decide what the anthem means for anyone but himself.

So it's been months now and what has this guy done?

New Jersey Gov. Murphy is now closing all state parks, country parks and forests.

Gotta watch out for coronavirus when you go on remote hikes -- that'll show'em Phil! Hey Phil, can I get coronavirus if I dip my foot in a stream?

They let trolls in the park???


Yep. There's a bridge I like to hang out under, near the lake.


#1364545 The Coronavirus Thread

Posted by Grelladinho on 06 April 2020 - 05:28 PM

Ah, we are by that Parkside/Drummers Grove entrance but Reggie can be dramatic, I'll tell him to hush. I've been going after 8pm, and then its fine for keeping big gaps while biking laps. Will get tougher as it warms up and people get antsy.

Yeah it will definitely get more crowded as it gets nicer. The drummers grove people are just congregating and smoking weed, like they always do, but they don't bother anyone.

I'm bummed they probably aren't going to have the free concerts this summer there. Hopefully smorgasburg can happen in some capacity.

You could always try Greenwood cemetery. Tons of trails, tons of space, less people (but no bike riding). There's a few ponds there that are nice to sit by.


#1364540 The Coronavirus Thread

Posted by Grelladinho on 06 April 2020 - 04:30 PM

According to a friend out for a run, Prospect Park is currently packed with idiots not practicing protocols. Makes me think we'll be dealing with rounds of suppression until a vaccine is available. 

The only people in Prospect Park not practicing distancing protocols are the people that congregate in the Drummer's Grove area (southeast corner). And they probably never will anyway. Other than that, the park was filled with plenty of people today enjoying the beautiful day outside, jogging, biking, walking and getting exercise, all mindful of each other.

So I'm not sure why your friend is trying to spread fake news but you should go for a walk around the loop. It's safe and a great way to blow off steam. It's completely unrealistic to think everyone is just going to sit inside this entire time.


#1364464 The Coronavirus Thread

My money is on ^ that timing, with a second quarantine sometime in late summer, early fall.

I'm wondering if the fact that personal hygiene has now been drilled into everyone's brains because of this (maybe too overboard for some), it will lessen the risk of a second wave.

Also I think because the 90-day eviction/mortgage suspension thing ends in June, that gives New York state an incentive to get things running again, rather than having to extend that even further.
