#1392479 We got 2 in the 22 under 22

I have been really impressed with Tolkin this season.

He actually blew my expectations out of the water.

Doesn't matter.  Costa Rica, Honduras and Mexico at least managed ties there recently.    


Who cares?

Just qualify.

Once you get to the Cup all bets are off.

But a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich is amazing.


But its not better than an Elvis.

Impossible to say how close we are to the $4.9M cap with certainty since the MLSPA numbers aren't a fully accurate reflection of cap hit and MLS sure as hell won't tell us in detail. But I would imagine every MLS team operates at or just over the cap with the help of some allocation money. Why wouldn't they? The league literally pays for it
 
So if you want them to go spending more than anyone else in the league on the defense, don't go complaining when they can't go sign that attacking player who could help the team a lot more than a 3rd/4th string CB.


What Im saying is that since we have no idea its meaningless to have the salary cap argument.

We are averse to spending money. I think that can be agreed on.

I want them to spend more. I want more talented players in their prime. I want better veteran leadership.

Anyone who would rather have Parker instead of Reyes right now is sniffing some really strong glue.


I dont know who those people are.

I would have liked to have both of them.

Posted by Koko on 06 October 2021 - 07:47 AM

Well maybe this transfer window. No?  Okay well maybe this one. No? Well maybe the next one. Hey come on you gotta give them time.

Thelwell is full of shit.


#1392038 Goal scoring, last 11 games

Posted by Koko on 04 October 2021 - 07:32 AM

He pounced on a rebound & headed 2 corners.
Are you saying that no one on our team can
put a shot on goal or a corner in front of goal?


Yes?


#1391825 The Fire Gerhard Struber Thread

Posted by Koko on 29 September 2021 - 10:22 PM

Its difficult to tell whether Struber is just using desire as a stand in for his true feelings about his current squad


He built the squad. And dont give me any shit about Thelwell and COVID. Ive heard enough excuses.


#1391762 Patryk "The Devil" Klimala no longer a rumour

Posted by Koko on 29 September 2021 - 05:56 PM

Felipe was different.  He would get in guys heads so they would actually foul him.  He would go down easily, but wasn't all that much of a diver.


I miss that midfield.

It is looking pretty obvious that last game was a lot more a reflection of just how fucked up a team Miami is than of any quality in RBNY.  Nashville currently brutalizing Miami 3-0 just after half time.


I dont know why anyone would be convinced, based on our general form this year, that the Miami game had anything to do with our team turning around their fortunes.


#1391305 Metro - Miami Game Thread

Posted by Koko on 21 September 2021 - 10:18 AM

Anyone have an explanation for why they looked like a different team? 


IMO they are young and will be inconsistent because of it.

I wont read anything into one good win until we string a few together.
