I really don't like Reyes.  He's a ticking time bomb.  The type of defender that's a red card with legs.  

There are only so many defenders capable of making Sean Nealis look competent.

I think Vanzeir has to start going forward.  He did almost nothing in the ~20 minutes he got this game.  He needs more time with the starters.

They just punt the ball upfield all 2nd half. You could have Jesus himself up there and it would not matter. There isnt an attempt to connect passes and bring him into play.

102 completed passes the entire match for RBNY. Got a gift goal and tried to see out a 1-0 win. Dickless soccer.

Dont see how Barlow isnt starting, unfortunately. Strubers system relies on a big guy who can compete for aerial duels.

Maybe you get Elias-Vanzeir, but more likely Barlow gets at least a half of ineffective play.

Misplaced concerns, increasingly feeling that his best chances will come as a result of Burkes holdup play.

Neither of Morgan/Luquinhas are likely to be creating consistent chances for him, not their game.

Not exactly confident that Strubers system has evolved enough to put him in the best position for success, but I will wait to see him start a few matches.

However, the only disappointment so far is that I dont see anything special abt vanzier. Maybe he is still adjusting. Idk.

Hes played 40 minutes.

Judging a guy on a short cameo after not playing for a month is a bit harsh. Lets wait a bit, unlike some of our other signings there is a track record of success in a decent league.

I couldn't find a way to switch to RBNY radio as promised, the only other available option was Orlando's Spanish(?) radio.

Apparently only home radio is available right now, which makes no sense.

The color commentator, Jamie Watson former OC player, was clearly biased towards Orlando which should be a no go for what is supposed to be a national broadcast.

CCJ is never being benched by Struber, so pick one. Probably Edelman for Amaya, when healthy.

Petke won a Supporters Shield playing one for most of the season, let's give it a go!

Thierry won a SS, Petke was just along for the ride.

#1424312 Colombian center back Cesar Haydar

Posted by TK_RBNY on 29 January 2023 - 11:51 PM

Hope this goes better than Monzon, pointless if hes going to be buried behind a non CB in DNealis.

Still would be worried if either Reyes or Nealis went down.

#1423991 Do we need another center back?

Posted by TK_RBNY on 25 January 2023 - 12:57 PM

I dont think Id waste preseason minutes that would be better served given to Nocita. Try it out with the 2s. The big concern would be Barlow is bad with the ball at his feet. S. Nealis is bad too though and hes found a way. Crazier things have happened.

Its still why I believe its a waste to play Reyes on the left and Nealis on the right side of central defense.

Regardless of side Nealis is not capable of distributing, hes still going to punt the ball forward aimlessly. Putting Reyes on the left puts the better passer in a less natural position.

YNT camp useless for a player like Edelman. Needs to be training with and against men.

Nothing wrong with that, especially if JT scores the final goal when we win an MLS Cup.

Guess we are winning this season, hes gone by next winter at the latest.

I cant imagine they are done adding. The only significant?outside addition has been Burke.

Duncan, Manoel both here at end of last season. Reid, Ofori, Stroud HG signings.

Struber alluded to looking at the transfer market for a CB (possibly a veteran type) on Fishkins interview with him for the last Seeing Red.

Im going to hope they have a DP attacking signing in them if its not Vanzeir.
