#1375400 Bleeding talent

Posted by JBigjake54 on 25 November 2020 - 08:51 AM

if we sign the type of player we want in the squad they won't be here more than 3 years


That is the situation with most clubs globally.
RBS has the same Develop & Sell policy.

#1375290 Struber didn't start Kaku

Posted by JBigjake54 on 23 November 2020 - 03:03 PM

not even a debatable argument that Struber's debut was anything but absolutely pathetic ... display of incompetence in the most important game of the season.


Some here called it a win-win for Struber.
I disagreed, and it seems now that more do.


#1375271 How will the season end? TSM after MPPF

Posted by JBigjake54 on 23 November 2020 - 09:10 AM

Not the predicted script, but typical TSM result.
Early goal gives false hope.
Immediately negated by conceding a PK.
Ridiculous Crew goal at start of second half.
Disheartening lob seems to put game out of reach.
Late score to draw within one.
Chance to equalize missed.
See you next year!


#1374919 Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

Perhaps the best way for any Metro coach to begin his tenure is by losing a must-win playoff game.


#1374913 Miazga rejects extension

Posted by JBigjake54 on 20 November 2020 - 01:00 PM

there's no development chelsea is doing for Miazga.


Were there development programs at Vitesse? Nantes?
How about Reading? Even Anderlecht?

Vaccines may be effective.


If people will actually take them ...

#1374747 USMNT friendlies v. Wales & Panama

Posted by JBigjake54 on 16 November 2020 - 06:26 PM

Would have been nice to see a goal


Plenty today! Young guys played well.
Of course, Panama only #77.  How are we #22?


#1374679 How will the season end? TSM after MPPF

Posted by JBigjake54 on 13 November 2020 - 05:01 PM

I would for sure just take a 3-0 drubbing than us blowing another lead or even extra time and losing.


A straight butt-kicking is not the Metro way!
Agonizing, heart-breaking, soul crushing.


#1374646 Miazga rejects extension

Posted by JBigjake54 on 12 November 2020 - 11:37 PM

Here is what you said in 2015:

his career could be over tomorrow  with an injury.

So, make the money deal.
Here is where we disagree:

His best bet to make $$ is to stay in rbny. He can build a nice career in mls and with the national team.

You said this before his final RB season:

when he is more of a finished product he can try europe.Right now miazga is a project and would not break into the squad of any of the big leagues.


When you have the chance to go, go.


#1374601 Miazga rejects extension

Posted by JBigjake54 on 11 November 2020 - 09:21 PM

It's my strongly-held opinion

Who knows if he would have developed more playing another year for RB?  Apparently you.
Not having access to your retroactive crystal ball,
I cannot share your opinion.
Few would pass up the opportunity to sign a lucrative long-term deal with a major European club, to spend another year at RBNY.  Those who stay usually gripe.


#1374589 Miazga rejects extension

Posted by JBigjake54 on 11 November 2020 - 01:03 PM

Purely in terms of his development as a player, he made the wrong decision.


We do not know that.
Does Miazga himself have an opinion?
Is any MLS development system better than those of the big European clubs?


#1374583 Metro - Columbus Playoff Thread

Posted by JBigjake54 on 11 November 2020 - 11:46 AM

Metro can definitely win this game...


Can is any number of possibilities.
RB are 4W-4D-5L on road, 16GF-19GA.
Cbus are 10W-1L at home, 22GF-6GA.


#1374580 Metro - Columbus Playoff Thread

Posted by JBigjake54 on 11 November 2020 - 11:00 AM

I've said since day 1 of this season that we were going to get into playoffs and not win a game and I stand by that.


Not going far out on a limb here.
