Making the moves we did to get 4 young guys shows me we are going to try and be more of a profit making feeder team than ever before

There's like no correlation. At all.

Giving up 100 grand in allocation money is the key to us going with youth and cheapness.  Develop young guys, sell them, m8n8mize salaries and increase profits for RB, too obvious

As opposed to giving up 100 grand for what, exactly? DP3?

Youth and cheapness is not just a business plan, it dovetails with the high press strategy  on the pitch.

Only the youth part.

i am really excited about Roy Boateng. from what i read, he seems very athletic and good in the air. With a little experience at the pro level, i think he is going to be a beast.

Red Bull Gmbh has been posting profits of over 500 million a year the last three years. One million more or less on RBNY isn't a huge deal.

I still don't understand what people are whining about here. The back-four is solidified and then Amro Tarek and Duncan (if healthy) are more than capable backups. You wanted Red Bull to open the wallet for... what exactly? A very expensive 4th CB? 100K to fill in the gaps and overhaul defense for NYRBII, which was horrible last season, makes perfect sense, and then in 2 years you hope one or two are capable of taking over if/when one of the mainstay defenders goes to Europe/gets hurt/is trade bait/etc. I can't think of a better plan than this one for the defense. If you want to bitch about spending, save it for discussions regarding Adams' replacement or a winger opposite Royer.

What the covfefe?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

It's Moreno to the Fire.

Disappointing, really liked having the guy back.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

He's had his chances -- and when the team needed a striker in midseason, they promoted White.

Not overly upset about this. Was kind of lost with the front four in his return from injury. With Omir signing soon, the emergence of Jared Stroud and Ben Mines on the other side along with Epps, plus Barlow and Abang up top, not much room here. Hope he does well with Chicago.

Win win situation for everyone. Moreno is at the point in his career where he needs to crack an MLS lineup. I think he can fight for a position In Chicago. We get a guy that could develop Into a wingback
