Yes if he wins a cup. If he doesn't, then he should have a plaque, banner and retire number.

i can get behind this.

your lack of respect for the Emirates Cup really grinds my gears


There is room on the bottom shelf of the sparsely populated RB trophy case for this lesser cup, along with La Manga and assorted Atlantic Cups.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Statue should be of the heel click goal celebration. But how could you do that if he is in the air?

If he wins us a cup, 100%. If not, I still lean towards yes but we will see. At the very least retire the number. His career isn't over yet.

 

Side note: Can we get a chant or song for this guy? I know his name tough but he doesn't get the love he should. We used to chant Henry's name after after goal.

I know it was originally for Yaya/Kolo, and we briefly did it for Bradley/Shaun, but honestly Bradley's verse of the brothers song over and over again would be great.

Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

IIRC, BWP said he was given his by Sean Ruiz.

In the stadium or at the big Adidas store.

If he wins a cup, and plays out the rest of his career here...then yes.

 

Right now, frankly I don't think this organization has a statue worthy player.....maybe because of the nature of MLS, turnover, and it's place in world soccer. He's ring of honor worthy for sure....along with Robles.

What if he scored a natural hat trick in an MLS Cup final, but we lose 4-3 following 2 own goals and 2 PKs marginally awarded?

Just saw this.  But yea no, No statue.  Get me a star for my jersey!
