#1350458 Young premier league winger = Josh Sims

Posted by odsum25 on 02 August 2019 - 07:24 PM

Buckmaster played in the PDL at some point, right? Must have been him... https://twitter.com/...3733587968?s=19

#1350421 Epps is Walkin' On Memphis

Posted by odsum25 on 02 August 2019 - 01:50 PM

Now this is the transfer news we've been waiting for! Epps was in a tough spot. He doesn't seem like he can beat out the other first team wingers, but he's a stud at the USL level. This opens up a first team roster spot and allows RBII to play some guys with a higher ceiling, so it seems like a good move for everyone involved.

Now, how about a signing or two? Who am I kidding?

That was a hell of a ball by Kaku.

Tarek has been great this year, but that was an awful case of ballwatching.

I love Lade for being a great locker room guy and a homegrown who has stuck around for a long time, but I'm fine with cutting him and signing any of Rito, Yanes, or Buckmaster at this point.

Traffic was horrendous. This place sucks, this is so bush league. Can't even bring a bottle of water in like RBA but they are charging $5 a bottle inside. Fuck outta here.

$2.50 water and $5 beer. ($6 craft beer too) Can't comment on traffic, but the train was smooth sailing.

Murillo was pissed when Ivan was called to be the last sub.

#1344083 Top level DPs

Posted by odsum25 on 08 April 2019 - 06:14 PM

You could probably make the argument that Reyna was a top tier DP as well. His European resume was pretty much as successful as Cahill's, aside from not being a club legend at a smaller side. Obviously, he was past it when he got here, but the guy captained Wolfsburg and was a stud at Rangers, as well as captaining the national team.

#1343007 Kaku benched, his feelings hurt

Posted by odsum25 on 17 March 2019 - 10:28 AM

I actually think that Kaku puts in a hell of a lot of defensive work for a #10. I also have no problem with benching him for acting like an idiot on Twitter.

I can't help but think that putting Rza on for Valot keeps the aggregate at 2-2. Of course, then they'd just choke on penalties...

I think that you have to start him. You don't want to bring him on and then have to take him off, effectively burning two subs.

You should have received an email about CCL redemptions. Get in contact with your rep ASAP.

I did. The question was whether the tickets were showing up in our accounts yet, which they weren't as of yesterday.

Edit: Mine seem to have appeared at some point in the last 24 hours.

#1340149 Mathias Jorgensen incoming

Posted by odsum25 on 05 February 2019 - 02:59 PM

The problem is that you can't get a proven striker to come here to back up BWP.

Guldbrandsen went back to Salzburg and played great. He was certainly good enough for MLS, but didn't want to stick around to be BWP's backup.

I've wanted an 'Alan Gordon' backup for awhile, but that doesn't seem to be in the cards. If you don't go that route, you have to go for young prospects who might be able to take over for BWP down the road. I know nothing about this guy, but it seems like he has a lot of upside.

#1339414 Club America wants Kaku

Posted by odsum25 on 21 January 2019 - 11:00 PM

arguably the best player in MLS, Josepf Martinez, says he is staying with ATL for as long as they want him too. He without a doubt must have interest from foreign clubs. So yea, not everyone is looking to bolt for greener grass.


Martinez also already had his shot at Europe and didn't really make an impact at Torino. He took a step back by going to Atlanta. He could still go back to Europe, of course, but his situation is very different than that of Kaku.
