#1351005 Speaking of transfers - Cahill is trying to transfer his mansion to a buyer

Posted by N8ballz on 07 August 2019 - 03:34 PM

Lifestyles of the rich and famous
For 7 mil you can get a massive mansion and estate for 7 million. In lower Manhattan you can get an 800 square foot condo. I know which one I'd choose. 

The silly thing is people in that area have both.  I've worked on houses that are used "for the weekend" to get away from the city.  Must be nice to have money.  I am amused that some people think a weekend in Bergen county is getting away.

Still trying to understand why you go Barlow over White if you want BWP on the bench.
Still trying to understand why you go Bezecourt over Etienne Jr. if you want Royer on the bench.

Well your first problem is trying to understand why when it comes to anything that happens with this team.

It's the clown show amateur hour!

I think I caught synergy from a girl at Nevada Smiths once.  I was on antibiotics for a month.

Since I have stopped posting positive messages in game day threads, we've been doing better. That's the only reason the team has improved.

#1345994 What is the front office doing?

Posted by N8ballz on 11 May 2019 - 05:01 PM

I mentioned it over a month ago about our recuiting of youth talent.  It's not happening anymore.  Adams was the last golden child.  Now NYCFC is beating us.  And if our youth coaches are leaving then we are fucked.  The Austrian philosophy only works if they put everything into finding and developing talent in the greater New Jersey, New York and Connecticut area with the best coaches and money can buy.  Otherwise we are just a useless billboard for an energy drink.

Amazingly, this is only the second time we ever lost 1:0 on an own goal.


The first?


Caricola. Duh.

Maybe we go on some crazy run for the rest of the season, win the cup and break the curse...

#1343413 Apathetic and fractured fanbase

Posted by N8ballz on 24 March 2019 - 09:12 AM

Thread split... Years of futility, playoff failures, miss management, lack of promotion and more sports and entertainment options than any other market in the country has made this fanbase apathetic and fractured.  By the way  the metrostars did start with good attendance in the beginning. And to add to that just look at a franchise like the devil's. Plenty of winning, legendary players and they still have problems getting people to the Rock.   The Rangers on the other hand haven't won as much over the past 3 decades but still sellout all the time and most regular ranger fans can't afford tickets.  Also look at the Knicks who haven't won a championship in close to 50 years and have probably been the worst NBA team the last 20 years but still draw and sellout.  It doesn't make sense really. These other markets coming into the league are completely different to the sports and entertainment competition provided by our area. They are also helped by not having the history of futility, apethy and being written off by the fanbase like we have.  I also think there is also an unconscious stigma against the quality of MLS in this area that we can't get rid of. These other markets are also a part of the surge of popularity of soccer and more specifically the US team around the country that has only happened in the last 10 years.

That was pathetic. I'll remember to never be positive in a game thread again.

I watched the replay a couple of times and he got hit square in his hip bone with a knee.  Hopefully for him it's just a dead leg and a bad bruise.

Did Lade get hurt on the new turf? He was in that area and haven't seen a replay here. He's definitely coming out of the game, didn't look good at all.

He got hit with a knee right on his hip.  Bad charley horse or bone bruise I'm guessing.

We could sign messi, ronaldo, and modric for this team and still fucking find a way to lose.

The only lesson learned is this team will always lose.  Every fucking time and in every way you can think and every way you can't think.  Death, taxes and this team fucking up in a tournament is the only truth in life.

Ya but those teams are stacked.. They have extremely talented players....

I still would love to see them make a amazing come back.. But I don't want to feel that crush from getting my hopes up because the odds are way way way against them

That's the unfortunate part of being a fan of this team. Deep down we all have hope and want this team to win more than anything but we've been kicked in the balls so many times by Lucy, we just know that magical win won't happen.

Look at it this way, we are only one game into the season and we got the fact that it will be another year without a cup out of the way. Now we can just sit back and enjoy the games before the playoffs come around.
