Well at least they have someone in place

hopefully he learned what not to do from experience at Schalke

Plus lots of RB experience.

 

Also, I don't mind Bundesliga 2 players.  Lots of good one like the Philly striker and fullback.  

hopefully he has a list of strikers


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

Gotta wonder what his track record was with Schalke wrt player development. He was there when they got relegated, though. Not sure if he was the man in charge of hiring managers, but they went through several during their path towards relegation. 

It looks like he was hired right before Schalke fired Tedesco, who got them to a 2nd place finish the year before and to the round of 16 in the Champions League. Tedesco has also done well at RBL since taking over for Marsch there. But I dont know what his role in that was.

That said, I think its hard to judge his Schalke career bc they had so many financial issues that predated his arrival. RB Global knows him, so personally Im hopeful, if not necessarily confident.

Yeah, he was brought in to sort out the backroom mess at Schalke amidst a financial crisis, so it's a bit hard to know what to make of the relegation. Perhaps the more important thing is that he guided them back to the Bundesliga this year.

Beats Hamlett signing German 4th division players (COUGH Andreas Ivan COUGH)

 

But then, Mandela Egbo was 2.B and he wasn't good...

Egbo was 2.B but barely played for Darmstadt. When he was with Gladbach he was playing with their reserves in the 3/4th tier.

Wow... ahead of the xfer window???   It's almost like they are serious.

Right? I am absolutely SHOCKED this happened so quick. Obviously, anyone is better than Hamlett. But nice to get a guy with Bundesliga experience and of course someone familiar with the RB system. 

 

But this transfer window is where we will really see how serious the club is. If we make some big attacking signings in the transfer window, we can complete for a Cup. If not....then it's the same old Red Bull.

I think we really only need one attacking signing, a proven striker, were pretty solid and deep in the rest of the attack. We need fullback/wingback depth though.

Needs are a striker, outside back depth and possibly another CB or two.

I thought this was the USMNT thread for a second.

Still in Europe waiting for his visa, according to Cangy. But he can work the phones from Europe, can't he?

 

Damn, what this team could be with a quality striker.

Europe could be good for scouting players.

He doesn't need to be sitting at a desk in Harrison to do his job. If we don't get quality players in the summer window, the issue won't be the time his visa took to process.

Plenty of MLS teams working the market and signing players. Par for the course for RBNY they are going to make it difficult for a new signing to integrate and get up to speed by taking their sweet ass time.

Sign a guy now, get his visa processed and get him in training before the window even opens. The only thing the window regulates is whether the player can be registered to play in matches.
