#1372683 Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

Posted by blank25 on 06 October 2020 - 07:13 AM

As a long time fan I don't expect much from this coach due to current talent on the team and his coaching record. This is being said because our past history with European coaches hasn't been great except for Hans Baacke. I expect & want a major shake up to the starting 11. My fingers are crossed this European coach will be good or better than Hans Baake if allowed to sign better players. 




#1370033 Metro - Revs Game Thread

Posted by blank25 on 26 August 2020 - 05:20 AM

I think play by Royer has always been good to excellent in attacking midfielder role but his play as a striker been below average. Using Kaku as sub is sheer stupidity by Armas. There must be a better way for Stroud to be in starting 11. Maybe using him over Casseres. Teaming Royer with Kaku is really the right way for this team to play. I don't feel play by Barlow, Jorgensen or White are a key to winning play. Hopefully the striker will brought in will be the one to lead team to winning ways. :unsure:




#1367979 Metro - Cincinnati Game Thread

worst showing by a metro team in a long time. No good passes  or runs in the box. cincy hunkered down and we could not  do anything.  I am afraid it will be a long losing season until we have good person who can score like jozy, angel or bwp.

Posted by blank25 on 09 August 2019 - 05:49 AM

The loan is good for him & club.   He needs more starting games to sharpen his goal scoring skills. This will give Armas  more options of who can use in his place. Maybe his replacement will light up our scoring ability especially in away games.

To say the least our style of high press is not good when teams bunker in the  penalty area or teams play long ball over the midfield. Armas should be coming up with plans to counter these problems that Metro faces. :unsure:




#1343044 Kaku benched, his feelings hurt

Posted by blank25 on 18 March 2019 - 07:52 AM

He is a good player but not  great. He can't hold a candle to Sasha in his time here or Amado Guevara(excuse spelling). Red Bulls should play him with eyes on getting a better deal than what Club America in the next transfer window.

I'm a Linux operating system user.  Again I will probably link up to Yahoo Sports watch this match again using computer linked via USB cable to TV. Hoping for good result tonight. :pint:

As much as I hate the DC scum I felt that a win by them would be a big nail in blue pousers coffin.

#1256958 Metro - Houston Game Thread

Posted by blank25 on 06 June 2015 - 08:11 AM

my belief is that the our first goal should be enough to squeak out a victory if the defense tightens up and lock out the opponents. If that fails then a tie should be good enough for a point. To allow the opponents to tie and take the lead & win the game is really god damn awful. This recent pattern by the team is really sickening. Marshe has to come up with a better strategy for defense, better use of substitutes and insert different players into the starting 11 that can get the job done. :wacko:




#1184424 The need for replay review

Posted by blank25 on 09 October 2013 - 09:17 AM

NO,NO & NO. Bad calls are made. Sometimes in your favor & other times not. Inserting replay review will mean commercial breaks like NFL games which just irritate the sh**t out of me.. I just like knowing that a game will be on for 2 hours & then it is a wrap.You just have grin & bear it. Better solution would be for league to review bad calls after game.  Institute a system where refs get cautioned with a yellow card for a bad offside call or similar offense. After five bad calls let them be suspended for a game. For a more serious infraction like denying a goal or a PK call maybe a red card & be suspended for next match.

In order to lay claim to being best football club in NYC enviroment then NY Red Bulls need to win the open cup & supporter shield at least  once between now & 2015. Also they have to win the mls cup this year. Go metro.
