#1351990 Random Player Name Thread 2019

Posted by Eleazar on Yesterday, 12:09 PM

RBNY need an upfield guy that can take names and get things turned around.

 

That was usually Henry Cahill Dax and maybe Felipe's gig.

I could see us being anywhere from 2 to out of playoffs if we collapse.

 

WE GOT EM RIGHT WHERE WE WANT EM, FAM

I know, and I did think about that...

...But no. Because metro.

 

tbf, you're both right. we've seen them crash out in typical Metro fashion. 

 

but Nov of 2008 will always stay with me, despite the result of the final. still hope, no matter how minimal...

getting the double with MLS Cup as part usually cements it.

well, at least NE gives up goals. but goddamn, they can score in bunches too, with some bangers. 

 

try to keep telling myself that the STH Predators were worth it...




#1351340 Etienne tweets about snakes... then gets loaned out

in the same vein, i think ppl wanted a duo that produced more goals and assists than the Grella-Sam combo did. We've got Royer doing his bit on one side, but still looking for the complementary piece on the opposite side that can try and match Royer's offensive production.

In the words of Tribe Called Quest, "riding on the train with no dough, sucks."

 

bummer.

Who was the last Metro summer signing to hit the ground running and make an immediate significant impact? Nobody comes to mind at least since Marsch took over. 

 

Since Marsch was HC in '15...

Veron

Royer

Damari

Keita

Ivan

 

Royer was the closest. 




#1351098 RB had a discovery claim on Brian Rodriguez

Posted by Eleazar on 08 August 2019 - 12:45 AM

Would've cut it close timeline wise, but imagine if RBNY had purchased Brian Rodriguez from Penarol's U19 team when it bombed out for Ignacio Pussetto? BR signed his Penarol contract beginning of last yr. Wouldn't have cost RBNY $11m nineteen months ago when he penned his 1st pro contract or during July 2018's transfer window. Would $5m for 80% of his rights been enough thirteen months ago? 

 

Also, twice now they've tried to get a stadium naming rights sponsor. Proceeds from that couldn't go to acquiring the next prospect to be sold in 18-24 months? 

 

Missed opportunities. 

 

Always.

Would have to classify that as a "That's So Metro" moment.

earlier in his career he scored more. 

 

and also that Chelsea friendly...lol 




#1350787 Young premier league winger = Josh Sims

Nonsense.   I'm not shitting on Armas, he's had a lot of headwinds this season, but it is perfectly logical to say the roster isn't good enough, and Armas is underachieving. Scoring a lot of goals is not the same as winning a lot games, and many of our wins have not been the type that inspire confidence.  We may be 3rd in the East on points (nothing to proud of) but are 9th overall in PPG.     Bookmakers don't have us any better than that to win the Cup, either.

 

New York Red Bulls +2000

 

we've had some serious garbage results at home this season and on the road.

shit results at home

ORL loss

MINN loss

MTL loss

CLB loss

VAN draw

 

shit results away 

CHI loss

NE loss (when Friedel was HC)

you can throw in the losses at TFC and HOU, but both of those were multi-goal leads. 

 

too many of these inconsistent results is why the fanbase is kinda feeling down despite being 3rd in the East, 4th on PPG. and it's the inconsistent results that makes us a long shot at winning MLS Cup. they can't prevent EVERY shitty result, but it's the collection of shitty results that'll prob not even get us a CCL spot next yr, and merely a spot in the Leagues Cup.
