It's come to this: we're reading tea leaves.

 

What a sad state this franchise is in.

"There is no offseason" -- Red Bull twitter, October 29, 2019.

 

Now I know what they mean. Since there is no offseason, how can they sign players?

If you have a functioning club and academy set up you should not be taking 5/6/7 guys.


Jared Stroud was a fourth round pick, #83, two years ago, and now he is all-USL and on the first team. Who knows if he'll produce in MLS, but why not draft a few extra players? It's pretty much free, and RBII needs bodies.




#1359066 Bobby Edwards from the Northern Irish second division

Portadown is listed as a semi-pro team.
They currently top the NI second division.
Has he been starting for them? Playing regularly?


Not the first time we had a link to Portadown:

Just remembered the Lawrence situation. Are we gonna trade the guy or are we gonna rock with an unhappy player?

 

Also I think I saw on Twitter that training camp starts next week, CL teams have already started and other teams like City have released camp rosters, wonder when we'll do the same.


What's the point of releasing the roster? Just look who is left from the team from the end of last year.

Do we think DE7 is on an MLS roster in January?   What is it we see in him that no one else seems to?


I don't, and yet we draft this guy... who takes up an international slot.

If the numbers are right, we paid 100K for #10... and Colorado paid 75K for #9.

Chicago's second rounder is from the Amando Moreno trade last year.

#1358759 Red Bull opts out of MLS retro gear merchandise launch

Posted by MetroFanatic on 08 January 2020 - 02:14 PM

You know they would sell a shitload of retro jerseys... the problem is, there is no Red Bull logo on them, so what's the point?

Lame, but expected.

 

Timbers can continue to pretend they existed back then.
