#1361561 Murillo sold to Belgium

Posted by MetroFanatic on Yesterday, 08:41 AM

This highlights incompetence of RB FO and also coaching. Yes, Murillo had a tough year, where he made some boneheaded mistakes, but still contributed a lot, and was the best RB on the team. Year before he was an all star and still very young. Played well for his NT team. Mistakes were correctable too and talent undeniable. So, what do we do? Trade the youngster away after one sub-par season. He immediately wins starting spot on a team way better than RB. Can't say I am surprised.


It's not as simple as one subpar season, apparently he became a huge problem in the locker room.

Murillo, a player who was supposedly lazy, bad, and prone to big mistakes for RBNY, has walked into the Anderlecht XI and played 90 minutes for each of the 5 matches since the transfer.


When his brain was in the game, like most of 2018, he was probably the best right back in MLS. That's what made 2019 so sad.

Don't agree with "not a deficient offseason" (we'll see if the RB and GK will start, and a U17 LB is nice but hardly guaranteed to contribute this year).

But Dyer has a point that it's a bit weird if people are simultaneously angry about 1) not signing players AND 2) Armas not explicitly saying we can win MLS Cup. Not sure how many such people there are, mind you.


But you can be angry about 1) not signing players AND 2) not having a team that is capable of winning MLS Cup.

So let's say that Murillo dropped off the charts and Duncan was gonna start anyway. Let's say that Robles was winding down and Jensen will replace him fine. Let's say that BWP is past his sell-by point and the forward-by-committee can produce.

 

WE HAVE NOT REPLACED THE BEST LEFT BACK IN THE LEAGUE.

"We played Atlanta in preseason, they had six shots, we had five, it was right there, we had three balanced teams, they had their best team on the field."

"But, again, that would be, if they find the right piece and the right person and player that fits, at the right time."

 

Right piece = doesn't exist

Right person = no one

Right time = never

How does a PA announcer affect attendance in a negative way?

 

Just ridiculous.

 

The real answer is they probably got someone cheaper. Same old Red Bull.

 

Hope Bob lands on his feet.

I miss when we had random trialists. Pascal Nouma, anyone?

White was a surprise last year.

Barlow has the tools to score a few.

Jorgensen, who knows?

 

To go into the season without a proven striker is absolute nonsense.

Less than 3 weeks to the opener, and this is the roster we're going with? For fuck's sake...
