#1340544 Offseason FAIL

Posted by elf on 12 February 2019 - 07:23 PM

Let's not get it twisted this group is one of the best NY has ever had...

It's just, and I can only talk for myself, keeping a group together is tough and if they don't win it soon guys will retire be over the hill or move on to other clubs.. who knows how long we can keep this backline and Robles and BWP together... Now there's Royer and Kaku but everyone else is depth.. This group all star calibre winger.. They're so close to finally winning the cup I truly feel one clutch DP.. The way Keane was for Galaxy or even Rooney for the scum and NY wins the Cup

This season... I think etienne, davis and Duncan are going to get better and solidify their starting position.

Looks like Golden Balls is getting a statue in front of LA Galaxy stadium.

Does donovan have a statue?

#1339704 Club America wants Kaku

Posted by elf on 25 January 2019 - 12:26 PM

FWIW Dyer still thinks that we're far from a deal.  I'd be down to give Kaku a pretty good raise.

My only concern abt giving him a raise now is because that would encourage this type of behavior

#1339701 Club America wants Kaku

Posted by elf on 25 January 2019 - 12:06 PM

Red bull should just wait. There is no urgency with Kaku.

If club america wants to be a big team then they should act like a big club and pay the 12 million.

Its not in Kaku's interest to tank since that will hurt his future earnings and red bull could ruin him if they bury him on the bench. He is not like Marquez who already made his money. He needs to show that he can play.

As of right now, I dont see him starting. Rza and Casseres should get the nod.

Not really - very different from US sports.
We can trade him to an MLS team without his agreement, but not abroad.

Send him to Minnesota... that will teach him... lol

Fagundez is out of NE. He would be a nice pick up.

Think abt it. Rb does not need him to be successful. However,  if he was to buy into rb philosophy he could be successful and replace muyl. This could be a very low risk move if lag is stuck paying his salary,  MLS wins since he is a big name that stays in the league, and gio is entering  his prime.

The goal would be to get him to his 2016 form when he scored 14 goals

#1338662 Attendance again

Posted by elf on 02 January 2019 - 07:15 PM

We are in the New York Metropolitan market. There are 11 professional sports teams, Broadway, bars, restaurants, concert venues...its a fact of life that NYRB is competing with all of that. This is New York where there are just too many things competing for eyeballs and butts in the seats. Look at attendance for the Islanders, Devils, Mets. Even NYCFC has declined every year. Other markets are not like New York.

To be honest... congestion is also playing a huge factor. It's rare for mta trains to work at full speeds, and sometimes it can take a full hour just to get out of Manhattan traffic.

Just the other day it took me 3 hours to go from Newark to queens. That long of travel will deter any nyer from making the trip to Harrison.

If nyc got another team in queens and in brooklyn... they could easily avg 25k a game since those teams will be much closer to home.

MLS draft is becoming more like the nhl/MLB draft. The mai. Purpose is to fill out the reserve/b Teams

#1338449 2019 International Call-ups

Posted by elf on 20 December 2018 - 05:39 PM

We all love Davis and he'll be starting for RB for years to come. But a NT callup would be nothing more than a reward for being a good MLS player. USMNT needs more than sideways passing and a decent defensive motor at CM. He hasn't even flashed his good shot for a couple of years now.

Sure, but Delgado and roldan dont even have a shot

Collin wasnt the same after last season's injury

I actually see Lade being picked. He is an okay right or left back, American, plays with heart, and cheap.

Tyler officially gone, so whatever we do with RZA is huge now.


Again CCJ isn't ready this year so we would start next year with Davis and Rza as the only true CM's. I know Valot and Beze can play there but I think we need one more CM for depth.

We need a forward winger who take muyl's spot but at the same time be BWP's replacement in the future. ideally be a physical beast.

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.
