I love that RBNY is the youngest team in the league. If they pull off this deal for Parker would be  a clear win in my eyes addressing a real need.

Dallas may have us beat.

They do.

 

Dallas: 23.9

NYRB: 24.3

Atlanta: 24.5

San Jose: 24.8

Dallas is aided, however, by the fact that they have a ton of very young players on their squad who have no chance of playing in MLS this season, and would be on a USL team in a better organization.

Noticed the same.  We'll definitely average the youngest as per first team minutes played this year.

I'm not sure how it will translate this year, but if they can keep enough of the band together for a few years and keep adding smart pieces, then we could have a nice run.

 

After watching the 2nd string against Houston you can see that many of them have a lot of developing to do before we can claim "deepest team ever", LOL

So weird that FCD doesn't have a NPSL/PDL U23 team or a USL team. They'd benefit from both, imo.

Considering who owns them, it's not weird.  Considering how great their academy has been, and how much it appears has been invested in it, it's very weird.

You mean the Hunts?

The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

hey, ain't my deal. i'd be fucking scared if they made moves to start up a U23 team and a USL team. that'd be bad ass, and all those academy kids would have a chance to get real minutes.

To this day, I think Bob Bradley's 2004 Metrostars team is still the youngest in MLS history. Truly ahead of their time.

Including the youngest line-up in MLS history by almost a full year. The Kenny Arena butt-goal game!

Youngest Lineup

June 19, 2004 (Metrostars 2:1 Los Angeles)

27.40-John Wolyniec

22.98-Tim Regan

Seattle v TFC in the MLS cup last season. The average age for those teams is both over 26. Based off that, Im thinking being young isnt necessarily all that? Still looking forward to this season and liking our squad.

Really looking forward to youngster Kaku.

The attraction of the youth is the potential for them to grow together. Personally I am keeping my expectations low for this season. They likely need time.

That, and how it works well with our press.  But mostly that.
