#1327513 Davis / Adams / Parker Contracts

Posted by elf on 11 June 2018 - 01:24 PM

Parker should be a DP. His style of play is critical to how RBNY plays

#1326367 Leipzig poaching Adams

Posted by elf on 23 May 2018 - 10:06 AM

The more I think abt it, I think this would be a good move. Leipzig is a place that will continue to develop him. It is not like Miazga who went to Chelsea and didn't have a shot at playing time (luckily he went out in loan).

Also if Adam's can't get playing time, I hope we have first dibs to get him on loan. It could be a win win scenario where we get $$$ and keep Adam's for another season or two.

So chivas plays veracruz on Sat and then flies to nyc to play rb on Tuesday.

They are going to have some jet lag and they are not used to the travel.

This is where we need to unleash kaku and rza

March did an amazing job managing that game. We just couldn't finish our 1 on 1 while chivas finished there 2 on 2 Next game we have to play with 4 in the back. They can't handle the press. I prefer rza over escobar

#1322337 Etienne goal watch

Posted by elf on 28 March 2018 - 10:26 AM

The stat is misleading since you are assuming that DE was playing forward for all of those minutes. He has played forward, attacking midfield, central midfield and wingback.

2 Mls teams won in Mexico in 2011 1-0

We lucked out as. Wrong call back on Xolos goal but hey Ill take it

BWP thought he held it to long and missed his chance - shows what little I know
Glad Ettienne showed maturity not getting further sucked into that mess

Don't think it was a wrong call on the  offside goal.

1 of the xolos players was offside and he ran towards the ball as if he was going to shoot. The player that was not offside scored the goal but the other guy interfeared with the play. It forced Robles to defend 2 guys instead of 1.  

The offside xolos player should of stayed still or should of gotten away from the play

Right now I am concern  abt the defense. 6 goals in two games is not good.not sure who is at fault or if it's the back ups that are doing a terrible job but we need some. CLean sheets

Don't worry, they clearly had a backup plan.
Going with the team already there and hoping somebody cheap comes through in the summer.

This could also be a way to negotiate. Lets see what happens by the time the window transfer closes

So at the end of the day you guys are satisfied with another season with no hardware, because you believe the hype that nyrb is building something?

I'd be more than happy to eat my words, but right now you guys are drinking the look aid.

I want to win now not in 2 - 3 years.  This is year 3 of marsch.  He is supposed to win now not continue to build.  

And I am not being negative.  I am just disappointed that we had 4 opportunities to win hardware last year and we came away with Zippo.  So in instead of doubling down, were bringing in projects.

To be honest, I think we r a better team without sasha. Just look at the playoff game against  toronto. We were a much more dangerous team when sasha was ejected then when he was playing.

All the new guys could be flops, and I still think we can make the playoffs with the talent we have on the team.

Sasha's stats is more a product of the system then a product of the individual.

I can see felipe or adams play that position and have similar stats.

You missed Perrinelle - the guy played in 25 games for us last year.  Redding is definitely not enough reinforcement for the defense.

Is perrinelle definitely  gone? He seems to always make the team in training camp.

#1316603 Homegrown Ben Mines signed

Posted by elf on 09 January 2018 - 01:13 PM

Agudelo's selfish douchiness is what kept him on the bench, with Henry's blessing.

Aguedelo is part of the generation of disappointment for the usmnt. A lot of hype and entitlement for guys that did nothing. This includes... hamid..johnson... kitchen...opara...valentin...adu...corona...diskerud...okugo...bunbury...gyau...and shea...sarkodie

So many busts in that generation. A lot of the blame goes to Klinsmann for not integrating them to the national team and mls for not doing a good job developing that talent

Lawrence........  ....Adams

I think this is the starting 11. I think keita will start and be a suprise.

#1316097 Rumors of BWP's demise exaggerated?

Posted by elf on 03 January 2018 - 11:37 AM

There is a lot more wear and tear in the midfield position when you compare it to the forward position.

BWP is a classic poacher. Doesn't rely on speed. He just knows how to position himself. That is why I don't think we will see rbny trade him. He will continue to be productive as long as he gets service

What will go away will be his ability to create his own shot which was never a strength.
