According to his social media, BWP is going to LAFC.

 

Now, because he withdrew from the re-entry draft, we owned his MLS rights... Let's see what the genius Hamlett got for the best striker in team history!

Good for him, I wish him well. I don't hate LAFC so it could have been a lot worse seeing him go somewhere else. We also play them at home on July 19th so hopefully we have a nice tifo for him.

I still think it was such a stupid and lame decision to retire his number when he was still playing completely unannounced after a random game with barely anyone in the building. It really should have been saved for when he actually retired and been a nice ceremony before a game.

We also don't play them at home this year.
 


We host them in July.

We've had a few of our stars go on to win the MLS Cup after playing for us. Petke and Mathis come to mind. Probably others. Good luck to BWP and maybe he will join them.

This hurts a lot.
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.

I understand and even support the decision to let him go. I'm happy to see him find another endeavor and I genuinely hope it's successful.

 

It still fucking sucks to look at that image on the front page.

Dimonade is out a few weeks with an injury. Hes excellent cover for a team like LAFC thats serious about getting silverware

A win win for both player and club.

Can't believe he was let go after one bad year. Watch him score 10+ goals this season while our low-talent strike corps struggles.

On a team that can provide BWP service, like LAFC, I can see him scoring 10+ easily. It wasnt going to happen here so it was better just to rip off the band-aid and let him go.

i kinda get letting him go but this still hurts


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

So to be clear, RBNY dropped Brad for "cap space", we didn't do anything with the cap space, and now he's signed with the best team in the history of the league, who are set to most likely run the league again next year.

 

Great.

Will be interesting to see what they are paying him - but he won't be a starter.

this is what i felt too... And what Metrofanatic wrote as well Hamlett thought he's expendable yet the best team thinks he is worth getting.... Illustrates exactly how terrible of a job Hamlett and co... Are doing it was tolerable to not win MLS Cup if supporters shield was won or 1st in east... And instead of seeing that as a sign they they were so close to the top that maybe they should add a little bit of talent to get over the hump they kept subtracting... Now they've kept subtracting and barely made the playoffs....

Now this..... This is like LAFC clowning Hamlett.... He needs to be let go..
I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.
