Berbatov is a free agent looking for a club. Wouldn't really work with the pressing but I'd love for it to happen.

#1294228 Red Bulls Looking to Sell Stadium Naming Rights

Posted by Mibabalou on 30 January 2017 - 11:35 AM

They talked about this all last offseason as well, I think Audi Arena was the accepted leading canidate.


Again I don't give a fuck what the stadium is called its beautiful, and all this to me means Austria is floating the idea of sellin in a few years.


#1294099 Lots of other teams are signing DPs

Posted by Mibabalou on 27 January 2017 - 12:33 PM

I posted something in the first few weeks of last season when we were struggling. For years everyone complained how there was zero continuity from year to year. We used to clean house every off season and start fresh in the Spring, and people hated it. Now everyone bitches because we don't make any moves.
 
Yes there is a difference between continuity and dying on the vine at the hands of an FO with no one in charge, but fans will always complain.



I don't think we'll at least myself I don't want moves for moves sake I just want time team to improve.

Can anyone look at the roster we had against Montreal and the roster we have tomorrow and even pretend we've improved?

Right now we're banking on BWP and SK16 to have MVP esque seasons Collin to always be fit, Lade once healthy to keep his late 2016 form, Davis who yes played well when asked last year but now to play 30+ games at that level.

I love that this team is focused on local youth guys and I hoe Adams and Etienne have breakout seasons, I'm just worried we haven't improved the roster.

#1292802 Jesse Marsch is in serious talks to move to Red Bull Salzburg

In college I made up a rumor on another board about kaka to Man united citing a source in Columbia and in like a day it was on goal and a few others, I was dying.


#1292717 Jesse Marsch is in serious talks to move to Red Bull Salzburg

Posted by Mibabalou on 11 January 2017 - 06:07 PM

Damn this puts a whole different light on the entire offseason. Now to me it looks like while most teams have been building a roster for next season we've been trying to figure out musical chairs for the backroom staff.  

 

I'm really disappointed if Jesse leaves he was a very good coach and Curtis was doing something right behind the scenes. 

 

With the core we have we don't have time to have another coach come in and learn MLS in two years, Dax, Robles, SK16, even Collin arent going to be the same players they were.

 

I'd really like Woly to get the chance, if it comes to a new coach. We have a system and we don't need massive changes, he knows this team from top to bottom and I think he would succeed.

 

 

No matter what happens the rest of the offseason this must be a huge distraction to the entire organization. One step forward, two steps back...

An increase of 800k should be an upgrade in RB and CB, and if we want maybe a winger. I'd get in a top MLS class CB for that.


#1291109 Minor league Cosmos

Yeah the whole convolution in the US lower division needs a big overhaul.

USL seems really in a great position, so that's a positive. Maybe we can just get USL and USL2 with 20 teams each. Maybe even pro relegation between the two in a few years.


#1291020 2016 Results Watch Thread

Posted by Mibabalou on 28 November 2016 - 10:46 AM

Does last year and this year not prove more about the MLS Cup playoffs being a complete waste of time?  Shows as much of the best team in the league as the US Open Cup does.
 
Blows that it's the measure of the best team.  Seattle struck gold even making the playoffs.  Same last year with Portland.  Yet both of these teams go on a nice little run and they are supposed to be considered the best?
 
 
Soccer just doesn't lend itself to having a playoffs.  The best team doesn't always win in the other sports, but it's certainly higher percentage than this.


I totally agree. From a competition point of view the only should way to give the higher seeds an advantage would be a one game playoff at the higher seed. We could do top 8 in each conference and then it will take four weekends and we have a champion.

I really think that's the most fair way, too often we have the higher seed team lose on he road even with an away goal and they get countered after dominating and the series is over. It really comes down to does MLS want the most balanced competition or most games for ad revenue.
