i can easily see BWP go to one of our rival teams in the east after we totally botch up the contract renegotiations and give them 1-2 quality years before retiring. If he rehabs right Philly has the midfield to provide him adequate service.
We spent too much money on Jorgensin for them not to give him a bunch of first team mins and White has shown he can play for pennies on the dollar (which ownership probably loves)
Our deep CM position needs to be addressed above all. Its the jenga piece that is collapsing everything.
Need to keep Parker. Theres no coincidence his and most players form dipped after Adams left. He was our cornerstone
Needed a difference maker in midfield, a legit right back, and an experienced CDM.
Got none of that, left 3 roster spots open, and now we lose to a crap team 2-0 at home during the hunt.
Red Bull Out.
Im still confident Murillo can play RB in this league. Sure hell have a brain fart here and there but if he didnt he would be playing on La Liga.
They key here is finding two CM upgrades. 1 destroyer. And 1 2 way that can hold the ball and initiate the attack. Especially A true DM that can cover for the outside backs runs and shield our CBs.
MLS quality is constantly evolving. It has rendered guys like Lade obsolete and now it has passed Davis by as well. Hamlett and the FO are just sitting on their hands while this evolution/progress is being made by our rivals.
The sad thing is that we think that Colorado is a shit team and we should beat them. Were the same shit. Weve been punching above our weight class for years bc of BWPs deal with the devil and Robles heroics.
If there arent any players who can fit your system, then you better CHANGE YOUR FUCKING SYSTEM.
Cant. Austria probably wants to keep everything consistent in the event another Tyler Adams comes through so he can make a smooth transition into the RBL or RBS system. Armas and Hamlett like their paychecks so you cant blame them for whoring themselves out. They have to put bread on the table like the rest of us.
This reminds me of the disaster the knicks faced when phil jackson was as the GM he forced his triangle offense system onto his coaches....the problem was that he didnt have jordan or pippen
I never would have guessed sitting in a 90% filled RBA in 2010 watching a 33 year old Henry (by 33i mean a legend with still something in the tank)putting on a show and reading about our blossoming academy and making shrewd Joel Lindpere type signings.
I thought that was the beginning of something special around here. Now were a farm team with little to no ambition to be relevant in this market on and off the field. The team is hemorrhaging fans to the point of tarping off big chunks of the upper deck.
Im not saying anything no one hasnt heard already...just venting my frustration in a weird way with suggesting Sane and Lingard.
Even if the academy pumps out a tyler adams every other year it will make very little difference in the long run bc we wont have the new phenom play with the existing young phenom bc the first guy would have been sold already.
The fact that this team did nothing to replace Adams at that CM spot shows you that winning isnt at the top of their priority list.
Ppl bring up that this is a very similar team that won the SS last year. But lets not forget that most of our opponents FOs didnt sit on their hands this offseason and last summer window. Last summers big signings like Ibra and Rooney have settled and are paying dividends.
