Why can't they just play tomorrow? Postpone/reschedule whatever return flight Miami has to tomorrow evening. This isn't hard.

If they cancel the game can they play it tomorrow or something?

Looking at the forecast it looks like there is going to be a decent risk of thunderstorms through 10pm.

Red Bull also has gone silent on their social media and aren't giving anyone any updates on how long the delay is for either.

In Topic: This offseason is not a shitshow

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see this offseason as a shitshow. Maybe 4-6 new starters? That is right where they needed to be. 
 
I'd like another LB and DP attacker, but you don't get every player. Building a roster is never done, but it seems like Thelwell is putting some pieces together... for this season and even for next (Carmona, Estrela). 
 
I want Haksa in (and i still think it might happen), but him not coming is not an indicator that RB failed, just that the deal didn't work out. 

It's definitely not a shitshow but it's not a success either.

The squad players and prospects Thelwell is bringing in simply aren't going to win the club trophies. The #1 need has been elite DP attacking talent and Thelwell continues to fail in this area. How can the club be right where they want to be if they aren't utilizing all the resources the league gives them to succeed? DP spots remain unused...again.

Saying "oh well, can't get them all/not the right fit" isn't going to placate the fan base anymore. The lack of top end attacking talent has been a problem for too long now.

In Topic: Cameron Harper signed from Celtic

Yeah, I never mind getting guys like Harper, we just needed a no doubter on top of it all.  At least one no-doubter.


Exactly. Interested in seeing what Harper offers, but he is still a young project. And there are quite a few of those here already.

I'm not really seeing the point in signing Harper.

Assuming him and Fabio are it in terms of forward signings this winter (seems unlikely they would pursue another forward after this), Red Bull goes into the season with four projects up front: Barlow, White, Fabio, Harper.

Can any of them be counted on to score 12+ goals?

I don't understand why this team can't spend on a veteran, experienced DP striker. That's the need here and Red Bull keep signing these projects.
