We need real players like Atlanta and LA teams, as well as Philly get.  Enough with all these young hopefuls from outside the US


Its fine to build a team of young hopefuls but they have to be able to play at the MLS level.

If rbny is building from within, then the development structure failed them.

we paid what, $1 million for him?

What was Red Bull thinking? You know that they have better scouts and talent evaluators that are paid big money to not whiff this bad. Its mind boggling.


It was Tam/gam league money. If he failed, then Zero out of pocket obligation for ownership...if he pans out then off to RBS/RBL he goes.

RBNY meanwhile took a massive salary cap hit to facilitate the plan. Sinister aint it?

5 year plan

TAM was used to pay down his salary, but Red Bulls spent a $2.5M transfer fee on him.

Fun fact, for a little over $5 million, Red Bull Salzburg got Erling Haaland from Molde. Haaland is 19 and has scored 18 goals in 12 games this year, including 4 in the Champions League. But yea, we got Jorgs!

so less than they spent on Kaku...   way easier to sign players, at any price,  when you're in the Champions League

There's no way to classify this transfer right now except a total disaster, but if an academy kid we signed for free had scored 10 goals in 19 appearances for RBNYII then we'd be fairly excited about it. I'm going to give him another six months before I throw in the towel on him.

He was far from free though.

we could have taken the transfer fee and bought far and away The best USL squad of all time. Now that would have been money well spent!

I know, which is why I said that the transfer is a fucking disaster. If we could go back in time and reverse it of course we would.
