With schedule being released on Monday (12/10), I figured now is a good time to start this thread.

In the meantime, some former player movement (I will update this by making edits to this post as changes happen):
Speedy Williams may not get a chance to win a 4th USL Cup in a row as he wasn't retained by LouCity. Bring back the lucky Speedy!

Tampa Bay is keeping their number of former Red Bulls alive. Despite not resigning Flemmings and Bonomo (they did resign Najem), they signed Brandon Allen.

Junior Flemmings is onto Phoenix Rising, where former academy and U23 player Joey Farrell was re-signed.

Zach Carroll is staying with 1868, Swope Park resigned Justin Bilyeu (and former academy player Ethan Decker)

Tyler Ruthven resigned with ATL2.

GK Kyle Reynish retired.

Konrad Plewa will return to RSLs reserve team.

Kosuke Kimura and Bolu Akinyode will return to Nashville SC.

In Sacramento, Rafi Diaz returns and they are negotiating to keep Jeremy Hall.

Former U23 player, Thomas de Villardi signed with Austin Bold after being plagued by injuries while with Minnesota United.

Great stuff, Im excited for next season.

Expect Louro, Barlow, Stroud, and Moreno to be leaders next season.

CM will be interesting to watch hope to see CCJ and or Koffi. Bet Tinari and Yanes to play a lot for RB2 if they come back to the first team which I expect.

Really hope mines comes out firing maybe the coaching staff could move him to 10 and try and develop those skills or just keep him at RW.

Should see new fullbacks and backup GK and my knowledge of the system ends here so no idea if we have guys at lower levels ready to step up or looking at drafting a lot.

Im really curious as to what were gonna do with Abang, there is a player there its just so rough and with Barlow and white I dont see where he fits in.

How's Moreno's prospects looking going into next year? Seemed like he had some hype around him at the start of 2018 but it died down, was he dealing with injuries?

He came in and out of the team like everyone depending on what the first team needed. Never really had a real run at ST but seemed to make that LW position his own by the end of the year. Theres still a chance he could turn into Muyl with a little better ball control, dribbling and finishing.

 

Id say mostly his prospects of first team impact have to do with if we sign another Kaku/Royer level guy for the RW. If we do that pushes DE7, Muyl, Valot and Ivan into competing as back ups in that front 3 behind the ST and probably not many opportunities for Mines / Moreno.

Prior to the injury, he was the starter and for a few weeks, leading the league in goals. Stroud was used out left after the injury and was solid enough to prevent Moreno from a ton of time when he returned at the end of the year.

Still, Moreno looked good at the very end of the season and can easily see him battling for a first team spot, especially given the current roster.

Start the season at home on March 9th vs. Swope Park Rangers.

Swope Park has Ethan Vancore-Decker, who was a great academy player for Red Bull when he was younger but faded a bit. Justin Bilyeu is also on SPR.
