NYTimes article here: http://www.nytimes.c...r/13vecsey.html

wtf? I guess it's 'positive'? but it has a weird context... saying things like "only" 19k showed up for Wed's game... 19k on a Wed should be impressive, whats with the "only"?

It's higher than our average thus far.. it's higher than the league's thus far.... what do you think average NHL attendance is on Wed nights? Just don't like the tone of the article.

And here's an Henry interview.. thought it was interesting that he sees himself as responsible for connecting the midfield to Angel....CAM please?

Very nice compliments on the South Ward and on Tim Ream for that matter.

Just another sign that shows how pivotal WE (as supporters) play in the role of a game.

Is it frustrating that you haven’t score yet in three MLS games?
TH: I’ve set up all three goals, so it doesn’t bother me.


What an inane question. RB should pay him extra for having to suffer through interviews with dopey American sportswriters.

Read the last two sentences of Vescey's article. Was he drunk? It sounds like a 6th grader wrote it. The NY Times has a weak sports section.

Superimportant quote from Soler:

Mr. Soler said that American players will eventually be the foundation for the team, though for now with the academy in its infancy, he values European experience more, and is skeptical of how three-month NCAA seasons prepare a player for 10-month MLS seasons.

I don't see the values of the draft either... not like Tim Ream will ever be an integral part of this team. Or Tony Tchani for that matter.

As an aside, the academy will begin to bear its fruit as soon as Agudelo sees his first league minutes. The trade of Tchani and the recent quotes from Backe indicate that he's on the cusp for league minutes.

Agudelo will be the first in what we all hope will become a golden pipeline of academy developed products plying their trade for their local soccer team.

We are a pro sports team with 16 regular season home games a year. If you want to see live soccer and live in the tri-state, we are pretty much the only option. We have Juan Pablo Angel, Thierry Henry, and Rafa Marquez on our team, which is the most expensive in league history. We play in a ridiculously nice, expensive new Arena. To me, "only 19k" sounds about right.

Regardless of this teams muddled history and its (debatably, but lets not do that here) embarrassing name, the fact that RBA has never actually been full isnt exactly impressive.

The point is they could with the proper education have been where they are today three-four years earlier in their career.

Everyone knows the attendance needs to be better. But it's not magically going to happen overnight.

19k on a weeknight is good attendance for lots of teams. I want to sell out every game, dont assume my expectations are lowered.. but it takes time and for now, we should be able to acknowledge that we have experienced an improvement.

So because of that, we should disregard the draft all-together?

"I'm sorry, I know you're a very solid player who could contribute to our success as a soccer team. But you're 23, and under ideal circumstances, you'd have been this good at 20. Sure, because of the US system you had no access to these ideal circumstances, and sure, you're better than anyone else we have for the spot. But we have no interest in acquiring your services at this time."

I'm still waiting for you to make your first good post.
