The foxboro house of horrors. Not the place you want this team going to in desperate need of 3 points.

Robles

I wish they would break the bank and go for Robben and Ribery

Sure a few years ago. If you wanna blow a ton of money now for two guys who will miss half the games go ahead.

Dude is 18, can we give him some time.

We're having Supporters Shield hangover a la 2016 where we had a terrible start as well. We were never gonna match last seasons regular season anyway. We can stem the tide of our slow start here. Minnesota is improved but they aren't great by any stretch. Positivity!

Play the starters. Tuesday to Saturday turnaround i not that short considering they had a week between Santos games. Start the home slate off right with 3 points against a bottom feeder.

Deepest team ever? 




#1340233 Trialists?

Posted by Sasa Curcic's Watch on 06 February 2019 - 02:02 PM

Reliance on young RB2, academy guys, plus the draftees have probably decreased the need for veteran scrap heap trialists I guess. 




#1340224 Mathias Jorgensen incoming

Posted by Sasa Curcic's Watch on 06 February 2019 - 12:44 PM

Could this be RB looking to the future a little but and that is a future without BWP. He is not getting any younger and we are gonna have to move on from him at some point. Why not bring in a young guy and integrate him early on and groom him to be the heir apparent. And at the same time bring some needed forward depth. 

 

Maybe I'm stretching it but at least we are being linked to a talented youth prospect. 

 

Now if only we continue to look for upgrades in other parts of the roster, be it now or in the summer. 




#1338135 Marcus Epps taken in Waiver Draft

Posted by Sasa Curcic's Watch on 12 December 2018 - 05:52 PM

This better not be our only move for the wing positions. 

 

We clearly targeted this guy by trading up in the waiver draft by trading a second round pick. 

 

Hope that Ivan is not long for this roster.

Valot played mostly at RW cause he wasn;t playing over Adams and Davis but initially in the CCL he was playing as a central midfielder. Him staying as a CM seems more likely to me.

#1336524 Playoff format changes next year

Posted by Sasa Curcic's Watch on 21 November 2018 - 12:35 PM

I hate the international break in the middle of the playoffs as much as anyone but I'm not sure a single elimination game is the way to go. Single game playoffs can lead to more fluke results and it will weaken the advantage the regular season team should get from being a better regular season team. The away goal rule already takes away the advantage from the higher seed and this potential change doesn't help it either. 

 

A compressed and shorter season also doesn't help. A team that doesn't make the playoffs will be off for how long, 5 months? That's not good. Also surprised owners will be willing to give up playoff home games. Compressed playoffs means less revenue from home games for a lot of teams. 

 

There have to be better solutions to deal with the November FIFA window. And is the break really worse than the solution they came up with? And most importantly they haven't addressed giving the higher seed more of an advantage in the playoffs.
