#1351780 So now what's the ideal XI (and subs) from late August on?

Posted by Grelladinho on 16 August 2019 - 04:43 AM

BWP, White, Sims, Kaku and Royer should be in the starting 11 this weekend, and Armas needs to find a formation to make that work.

Fuck the failed 4-2-3-1 and the "system". If the team wants to have any chance at making a playoff run this year they need to get all their top players out on the field. Enough of BWP on the bench.

#1351458 EPL Interest in Aaron Long

Posted by Grelladinho on 12 August 2019 - 04:33 AM

Long has absolutely nothing to complain about. His career was in tatters, this team took him in and now he is a starter on the national team.

If he signed a contract the expectation is that he stays committed the entire time.

The club should not bend over for one player. If he wants to burn bridges and pout because he's not a seventh-string CB on a garbage PL team like West Ham, that's his choice, but the club should not sell Long if they are still trying to make the playoffs.

#1351033 Young premier league winger = Josh Sims

Posted by Grelladinho on 07 August 2019 - 05:50 PM

Hes only here for 3 months, btw. I assumed it would be a 1 year loan.

If he excels he probably won't return next season.

Maybe regardless he's not returning next season.

What a disappointment, might as well get more tarps at this rate. Would love to be absolutely wrong and they win an MLS Cup but lols been here too long to believe that nonsense.

Exactly. It's hard to get too excited.

Three windows and the best they could do is bring in this guy -- who, like another poster above suggested, is only on the team's radar because of his connections to the Red Bull empire.

What a joke.

As cheap as the owners are, this team is still jostling for position in the playoff hunt.

Long absolutely should not be sold this season.

Do any other coaches/GMs in the league use the BS line that players need to fit the system?

Do you think the Galaxy, when Beckham came knocking, thought long and hard about whether he fit their system or not?

What about Bradley and Jozy for Toronto? They have an MLS Cup to show for bringing those two onboard.

The Red Bull front office (de Grandpre too) need to be fired if they don't do something big in the next week. There is no excuse to not use the third DP slot and waste money on players like Ivan.

Does Sane from man city also play wing back? I know they're shopping him

Sane would cost around $100 million to bring in. Not happening.

Parker has been average to mediocre this season

They need to make a signing along the lines of Pozuelo (Toronto), Fernandez (Portland), or Bou (New England). Someone who immediately can come in and win games for the team.

#1350171 Hamlett is in so far over his head

Posted by Grelladinho on 28 July 2019 - 06:40 AM

Even if austria is pulling the strings with international  signings he can still make moves within the league.  We could have thrown our hats in the ring when Nagbe has having problems or even trade for an Olonso type vet to sure up the CM. Im sure he has the phone numbers for other teams FO

Im starting to think that hes getting instructions from Austria NOT to sign/trade for Veteran players within the league so that the kids will be guaranteed playing time so they can then be sold or feed Salazburg/Leipzig  

Were probably going to see the end of BWP in a RB jersey after this season even if he turns it around and plays well the next few months. Even if he takes a massive paycut.  Hell be taking playing time away from a player that can be groomed and sold.

It really is looking like that the main goal for this team isnt to win

If that's the case then why do young players like CCJ, Duncan, and Etienne never get minutes?

Davis and Rza have held the CM spots down all season. Muyl has taken the RW spot. Are they grooming Muyl to be sold to Europe or something?

Owner. Don't. Care.

RB Leipzig making the bundesliga was one of the worst things to happen to this team.

#1347248 Development around the Arena

Posted by Grelladinho on 06 June 2019 - 09:48 AM

nice! had no idea about this place. i typically head to ah pizz or to the beer garden, but will check this place out next time

I've only had an appetizer there so I can't speak much about the food, but the bar there is great. Nice selection of beers, fairly cheap and lots of space to spread out if you want to grab a table with friends. It's much better than the bar in the Element hotel.

#1347244 BWP on trading block?!

Posted by Grelladinho on 06 June 2019 - 07:43 AM

Why would any team trade for an injured, out of form player? This rumor is total garbage.

Why not just have it at the arena and make it another $1 hot dog night? Seems like a no brainer.

absolutely nothing gives me the impression that BWP will play next week. i'm thinking Long might. Valot's out long term, and they haven't given an update re Beze have they? 

My hunch is BWP returns after the Gold Cup break.

He didn't make the 18 this past week and with White performing well there is not much of a reason for management to rush him back. His injury must be worse than they are letting on though.
