#1356530 Random Player Name Thread 2020

Posted by RedBullScouse on 06 November 2019 - 11:04 AM

Expect more sims type players for this year. Then when the path station reopens full time, expect a big marketing push + bigger stars + no tarps

  I'd love a few more Sims type players, but we'd be lucky to get Sims himself back


#1356509 2019 MLS Forbes Valuations

Posted by RedBullScouse on 05 November 2019 - 01:28 PM

RB gross revenue $36 Million? How?
I know guesstimates $125 M from SUM,
But RBs share of that would be $5M,
and its share of TV revenue maybe $4M.
Ticket revenue has to be less than $10M.
Where does the other half come from?

Dax for Rzatkowski 341K + Davis 327K is a wash.

  interesting stas out there, with Davis 4th in the league in interceptions and 5th in tackles.  Underrated?


#1356422 Bring back Sims

Posted by RedBullScouse on 01 November 2019 - 08:06 AM

We are talking about RBNY, the forgotten cousin.

After they  gave us $2M to throw away on Matty Ice, I could be talked into the belief that RB aren't necessarily as cheap as Hamlett and Armas are inept.    I can imagine the conversation that happened before that deal:

 

RBNY:    Dad, can you give me, like,  $10M?

Papa RB:  For what?

RBNY:  We wanna go buy someone

Papa RB:  Who?

RBNY:  Ummmm....  

Papa RB:   I tell you what... go do your homework, get a smart deal ready to go, then come talk to me...

RBNY:   Ummmm... how about $5M?

Papa RB:   I saw what you did with the money we gave you for that KooKoo kid....  here's $2M, show me what you can do with that and then we'll talk.

#1356171 What would it take for Red Bull to sell?

Someone in the mothership would have to learn of this first. Reporting crowds of 15K feeds the deception.

You can report whatever crowds you want, but revenue is revenue.   




#1356115 The Fire Chris Armas Thread

Posted by RedBullScouse on 24 October 2019 - 11:37 AM

Yeah, he deserves some credit for last year's shield and conf finals appearance, but this year he sure laid a giant egg. Play-off appearance as #6 and a first round exit is nothing to brag about. ...

There was no bragging, it was just a statement of fact.

... Half the teams in the league lose their sole Open Cup game ...

ALL of the teams with a sole Open Cup game lose it.  If you win, you get a second game.   MLS teams went 14-7 in our first US Open round, though  just 5 of the 16 first round matchups were between MLS clubs.




#1355778 Mathias Jorgensen incoming

Posted by RedBullScouse on 21 October 2019 - 10:59 AM

Fun fact, for a little over $5 million, Red Bull Salzburg got Erling Haaland from Molde. Haaland is 19 and has scored 18 goals in 12 games this year, including 4 in the Champions League. But yea, we got Jorgs!

so less than they spent on Kaku...   way easier to sign players, at any price,  when you're in the Champions League

That's one helluva an entertaining half of soccer.

If we make to the final against LAFC maybe we should move the game to Nakatomi Plaza?

They'd have to move the game to Christmas Day

Cinci has released him.   If he's not good enough for THEM, there's something wrong.




#1355015 The Fire Chris Armas Thread

Posted by RedBullScouse on 07 October 2019 - 06:00 PM

 

You make it sound like Tyler Adams was that hard to replace. The guy is Bundesliga level but Casseres and Rza should ideally be good enough in MLS to replace him. Neither are as good, but I don't think the level of our midfield should have gone down that much. With BWP, I agree, massive loss. Guy scored 20 goals last season, White scored 9 goals and Barlow got 3... neither are replacements for that level of production and that is why the blame isn't 100% on Armas but that doesn't mean he is exonerated.

 

Both Red Bull Global and Armas are to blame for what has been a pretty bad season.

Is BWP a Bundesliga level player?  No, not even close.  If we were to sign a young, highly regarded starter from a top Bundesliga team it would be seen as a massive upgrade.   Losing one has to be seen as a massive downgrade.   They clearly thought that Rza would adapt to that role better than he has, and that Casseres would have developed faster than he has.
