Fagundez is out of NE. He would be a nice pick up.

Think abt it. Rb does not need him to be successful. However,  if he was to buy into rb philosophy he could be successful and replace muyl. This could be a very low risk move if lag is stuck paying his salary,  MLS wins since he is a big name that stays in the league, and gio is entering  his prime.

The goal would be to get him to his 2016 form when he scored 14 goals


#1338662 Attendance again

Posted by elf on 02 January 2019 - 07:15 PM

We are in the New York Metropolitan market. There are 11 professional sports teams, Broadway, bars, restaurants, concert venues...its a fact of life that NYRB is competing with all of that. This is New York where there are just too many things competing for eyeballs and butts in the seats. Look at attendance for the Islanders, Devils, Mets. Even NYCFC has declined every year. Other markets are not like New York.

To be honest... congestion is also playing a huge factor. It's rare for mta trains to work at full speeds, and sometimes it can take a full hour just to get out of Manhattan traffic.

Just the other day it took me 3 hours to go from Newark to queens. That long of travel will deter any nyer from making the trip to Harrison.

If nyc got another team in queens and in brooklyn... they could easily avg 25k a game since those teams will be much closer to home.


#1338508 2019 "Super"Draft

MLS draft is becoming more like the nhl/MLB draft. The mai. Purpose is to fill out the reserve/b Teams


#1338449 2019 International Call-ups

Posted by elf on 20 December 2018 - 05:39 PM

We all love Davis and he'll be starting for RB for years to come. But a NT callup would be nothing more than a reward for being a good MLS player. USMNT needs more than sideways passing and a decent defensive motor at CM. He hasn't even flashed his good shot for a couple of years now.


Sure, but Delgado and roldan dont even have a shot

Collin wasnt the same after last season's injury

I actually see Lade being picked. He is an okay right or left back, American, plays with heart, and cheap.

Tyler officially gone, so whatever we do with RZA is huge now.

 

Again CCJ isn't ready this year so we would start next year with Davis and Rza as the only true CM's. I know Valot and Beze can play there but I think we need one more CM for depth.

We need a forward winger who take muyl's spot but at the same time be BWP's replacement in the future. ideally be a physical beast. 




#1335928 Metro - Atlanta Playoff Thread

Posted by elf on 12 November 2018 - 07:56 AM

The only team that worries me is kc.

We should be able to beat atl. They have not been able to figure out the press and I just dont see Portland's defense being able to perform well.


#1334388 Long, Parker, Adams called in for USMNT

Posted by elf on 16 October 2018 - 09:35 AM

Davis deserves a shot at the usmnt. Only midfielder that has shown that has belong in the starting 11 is Adam's.

The other guys have raised questions. I am not even sure if mckinnie or acosta should even be on the squad. They might be talented but play as if they are afraid.

Don't care about the NASL or the Cosmos nor any team in Canada. Not my team, not my problem. Fuck em.

According to Satan...

 

:-D




#1332990 Long, Parker, Adams called in for USMNT

Posted by elf on 07 September 2018 - 12:11 PM

 
I would have said the same before this call-up simply cause I figured he'd keep flying under the radar, but now I feel like there's a chance he'll start to get some international attention. Especially considering he's actually still getting better.
 
If we had gotten Long earlier in his career I fully believe he'd have gone for a Miazga-esque transfer fee.


Agree, college and Seattle played him in the wrong positions. He would of been much better if he came through the red bull system.


#1332847 Leipzig poaching Adams

Posted by elf on 04 September 2018 - 10:04 AM

 
You're underestimating Adams. If McKennie is good enough to be a lock starter at Shalke then Adams definitely has a real chance at earning himself playing time at Leipzig.


And your underestimating Leipzig's midfield. The team is stacked with guys involved with the German national team, german youth teams, and Bundesliga vets.

He is not going to beat out the German national team vets. If they are developing guys, the German youth players will win playing time since they wont count as foreign. His only shot is to beat out the guys that have consistently played in the Bundesliga.

All I am saying is let him dominate MLS before he moves on. He hasn't shown that he can shut down a team in the same manner that mastroeni did when he played for the miami fusion or how armas did when he played for the fire. When he goes abroad, he needs to be good to start at that moment


#1332845 Juan Carlos Osorio will not coach USMNT

Posted by elf on 04 September 2018 - 09:42 AM

I wouldnt mind seeing Arsene Wenger as usmnt manager

At this point, we need a manager who will trust our youth players and play an attacking style that will make folks proud of the team. The big names like bradley or Altidore are no longer needed. And any other manager might bring them in to boost their individual stats instead of looking at the long term health of the usmnt program. Maybe have Henry as an assistant or usmnt Olympic team manager


#1332828 Leipzig poaching Adams

Posted by elf on 03 September 2018 - 08:24 PM

They cant just call him up. We arent their USL affiliate.


When I say call him up. I meant they tell rbny that they need him and transfer him over in one of the transfer periods.

Folks are acting like he is dominating MLS and he is not. There is still room for improvement since MLS is still challenging him. From a development perspective, he will develop more here, right now, compared to a bench position in Leipzig or playing for their reserve team.
