So, ahem, 8 goals in 2 games... after 9 in 12.

Henry is our lucky charm, even Tommy B feeling it!

 

And how about Dani Royer closing in on 50 goals and Clint Mathis. Impressive!


Royer has already passed Mathis in all competitions, 49-45. Regular season, Mathis 39-38.




#1372153 Gerhard Struber Rumour

I would rather spend 2M on a DP striker NOT named Jorgensen, but this.

 

I'm pretty happy about this. Even if this guy ends up sucking, it's a sign of intent, of interest. Low bar, but Austria acknowledging our existence is a huge step up.
 




#1372101 Midseason? grade

Posted by MetroFanatic on 24 September 2020 - 09:35 PM

I'd give it a C- or D+.  As things stand, we are only one place below were we finished last year in the East and two places down in the Supporter's Shield standings.  


A high bar that is...

 

D-. We are shit.

#1371672 Parker on the trade block?

Posted by MetroFanatic on 17 September 2020 - 07:11 AM

Parker, on a good day, is one of the best central defenders in MLS. There is no reason to give up on good players for a pie-in-the-sky. The question that should be answered, why have his good days dwindled since 2018?

 all of a sudden, he's plugged into a functional system


Us not having a functional system is the problem...




#1371576 Valot / Casseres no longer international

Posted by MetroFanatic on 14 September 2020 - 04:13 PM

Have a whole winter to address the roster. Doubt anything is going to happen before this window closes.

12 matches left, by the time the player signs, gets a visa, quarantines, and gets up to speed its going to be a signing for next year anyway.


They did trade for an inter slot for this year and next. No reason for THIS YEAR, unless they plan to use it?

MetroFanatic, is this the first time in club history that multiple goalies have contributed to a shutout?


No. The Waterreus hypothermia game: http://www.metrofana...ory.jsp?ID=4350

 

And this Open Cup obscurity: http://www.metrofana...tory.jsp?ID=795

 

Another one, Alec Dufty's lone appearance: http://www.metrofana...ory.jsp?ID=5119

#1371196 Has there ever been a Red Bulls team less exciting to watch?

Posted by MetroFanatic on 06 September 2020 - 10:18 PM

2 goals in 7 league games is officially the worst 7-game streak in team history.

 

In 1999, they were shutout 4 in a row, but scored 4 goals in the 3 games prior or after.

 

In 2009, they had two overlapping stretches of 3 in 7.

 

The worst 10-game stretch is 4 in 10 games, also in 2009. We can match it if we're shutout in the next game, and beat it if we get shutout in the one after.
