#1335928 Metro - Atlanta Playoff Thread

Posted by elf on 12 November 2018 - 07:56 AM

The only team that worries me is kc.

We should be able to beat atl. They have not been able to figure out the press and I just dont see Portland's defense being able to perform well.


#1334388 Long, Parker, Adams called in for USMNT

Posted by elf on 16 October 2018 - 09:35 AM

Davis deserves a shot at the usmnt. Only midfielder that has shown that has belong in the starting 11 is Adam's.

The other guys have raised questions. I am not even sure if mckinnie or acosta should even be on the squad. They might be talented but play as if they are afraid.

Don't care about the NASL or the Cosmos nor any team in Canada. Not my team, not my problem. Fuck em.

According to Satan...

 

:-D




#1332990 Long, Parker, Adams called in for USMNT

I would have said the same before this call-up simply cause I figured he'd keep flying under the radar, but now I feel like there's a chance he'll start to get some international attention. Especially considering he's actually still getting better.
 
If we had gotten Long earlier in his career I fully believe he'd have gone for a Miazga-esque transfer fee.


Agree, college and Seattle played him in the wrong positions. He would of been much better if he came through the red bull system.


#1332847 Leipzig poaching Adams

Posted by elf on 04 September 2018 - 10:04 AM

 
You're underestimating Adams. If McKennie is good enough to be a lock starter at Shalke then Adams definitely has a real chance at earning himself playing time at Leipzig.


And your underestimating Leipzig's midfield. The team is stacked with guys involved with the German national team, german youth teams, and Bundesliga vets.

He is not going to beat out the German national team vets. If they are developing guys, the German youth players will win playing time since they wont count as foreign. His only shot is to beat out the guys that have consistently played in the Bundesliga.

All I am saying is let him dominate MLS before he moves on. He hasn't shown that he can shut down a team in the same manner that mastroeni did when he played for the miami fusion or how armas did when he played for the fire. When he goes abroad, he needs to be good to start at that moment


#1332845 Juan Carlos Osorio will not coach USMNT

Posted by elf on 04 September 2018 - 09:42 AM

I wouldnt mind seeing Arsene Wenger as usmnt manager

At this point, we need a manager who will trust our youth players and play an attacking style that will make folks proud of the team. The big names like bradley or Altidore are no longer needed. And any other manager might bring them in to boost their individual stats instead of looking at the long term health of the usmnt program. Maybe have Henry as an assistant or usmnt Olympic team manager


#1332828 Leipzig poaching Adams

They cant just call him up. We arent their USL affiliate.


When I say call him up. I meant they tell rbny that they need him and transfer him over in one of the transfer periods.

Folks are acting like he is dominating MLS and he is not. There is still room for improvement since MLS is still challenging him. From a development perspective, he will develop more here, right now, compared to a bench position in Leipzig or playing for their reserve team.

Surely he will at this point? 
 
(Never fucking know with this organization) 

Germany's transfer window closes tomorrow. If nothing happens, the next time he can leave is Jan 1 - jan 31


#1330500 Should BWP get statue on entrance to RBA?

Posted by elf on 26 July 2018 - 10:34 AM

Yes if he wins a cup. If he doesn't, then he should have a plaque, banner and retire number.


#1330328 Favorite Kit Combo

I like the red and black option.

It is a shame to what happened at the new york daily news. The sports department got gutted.

Now, they barely have staff to cover yankee games. I would be shocked if any soccer coverage gets posted.





#1330017 What is Andreas Ivan good at?

Posted by elf on 21 July 2018 - 01:50 PM

I guess its wait and see. Let's not expect him to be bwp but hopefully better then muyl


#1329838 Marsch goes

Posted by elf on 17 July 2018 - 07:29 AM

Again, unless you're saying Nagelsmann has no control over his staff, I don't see how that's a guarantee.

If your two bosses are hiring a guy to be in your staff, i dont think Nagelsmann has a choice unless he declines to take the job. 

 

And Naglesmann is not going to decline since Leipzig is a step up in his career as manager,

Imagine rossi, mcbride and donovan running things for the usmnt. What a shame.


#1327513 Davis / Adams / Parker Contracts

Posted by elf on 11 June 2018 - 01:24 PM

Parker should be a DP. His style of play is critical to how RBNY plays
