#1358760 Red Bull opts out of MLS retro gear merchandise launch

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 08 January 2020 - 02:15 PM

More to the point, think of how many people would buy them who would never go to games because of the takeover

Might be embarrassing

Just one more data point against our Austrian Overlords

I Think one of our jerseys should be white/black halves anyway


#1357716 Has the team ever been booed on opening day?

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 08 December 2019 - 12:59 PM

We looked like absolute dogshit vs Cincy at home this past year and it was only a Connor Lade once in a lifetime strike that saved us.

Now I know we were missing a few regulars for that one, but still.


And our roster is not now?

The silence, it is deafening

Two things would have to happen for them to get boo'd that first game; they would have to totally shit the bed in the transfer window, and lose the game.     If those both happen, I can easily see an immediate, vocal response.  But if they win, or they sign a bunch of promising talent that simply fail to gel in time for the first game,  I wouldn't expect it.


So theyre getting booed then


#1357029 Contract deadline day

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 21 November 2019 - 02:12 PM

Out:
Robles, BWP, DE7, Beze, Koffi, Louro and Epps.

This team makes it easy to not show up to the stadium.


Counterpoint :

Robles : Substantial cap savings, and his back up was the starter (**** NE) and supposed long term local boy solution.

BWP : Past it

DE7 : Never clicked

Louro, Epps : Not RB I worthy IMO.


(Ill leave aside Beze since I dont know his cap hit and I thought he was fine depth.  I dont know enough about Koffi either)

My main issue is I dont trust Hamlett or Armas in the least.


#1357015 Contract deadline day

BWP I get but Meara isn't better than Robles, and that's just the truth. We're not going to do anything with the 200k savings.


400k.

In a vacuum, all of these moves make sense.  

Given the current FO ability or lack thereof in identifying incoming talent, I think this will be a net negative.

So would Dieters severed head shoved up his ass.


#1356129 NYCFC is owned by slavers

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 24 October 2019 - 04:23 PM

If I didn't know better, I might have thought that was a NYRB team playing a playoff game wearing light blue jerseys.


Who knew MPF was transmittable?

Why bother?

RB doesnt care.  Why should we?

No more than this franchise deserves


#1354773 If Red Bull had to do it over

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 01 October 2019 - 12:38 PM

If they had it to do over they wouldnt have built the stadium.


Had they even bought Leipzig yet when they bought Metro?

RBL In the Bundesliga.   THAT is the inflection point for RB s economies with regard to RBNY


#1354040 Has Armas lost the team?

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 18 September 2019 - 08:01 PM

Armas is Osorio 2.0


To be fair, JCO has had success elsewhere.

Armas couldnt coach an U-8 team

Top to bottom, management/ownership needs a housecleaning.


#1351541 Ivan released

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 13 August 2019 - 05:37 AM

Red Bull, Inc: Well we dont want to sign anyone, but maybe if we get rid of some players THAT will placate the fanbase.


Maybe they are clearing the decks and books for something?

Probably not, but nice to dream
