I have no idea if this account is valid or not, but here you go...

 

New York City FC or New York Red Bulls are interested in signing Brazilian left winger Héber. He plays for Croatian club HNK Rijeka and is valued at $4.3 million. He nearly completed a move to China last month, but it did not materialize.(Sportske novosti) #NYCFCMLS_19_NYCFC.png #RBNYMLS_19_RBNY.png

 

 

 

27 years old with 9 goals in 15 appearances this year in the Croatian league.  Is listed as a striker.  Previously played in Armenia.

 

There was a report the other day that NYCFC was bringing in a striker, although it sounded to me like they were bringing in someone with a higher profile than this guy.

Frankly, I do not expect NYT coverage, unless a fan attacks a player at RBA or YS, or there is video of abuse, or SkyBlue players sue Murphy.
Or some combination thereof.

Is there a newspaper that actually does cover the team?

Thomas Muller.  Not realistic, I know.  A little on the old side, and there's nothing to suggest that he would want to come to MLS.   Would maybe be a big transfer fee, as he has two more years left on his contract with Bayern.  But Bayern almost certainly will be looking to find a younger replacement for him in the next year or so.  Also, he's finished with the German national team, so he doesn't have to play in a top league to make sure he keeps getting call ups.  And anyone can be tempted if you offer enough money.  

 

RBNY seems to have moved away from the big splash signings, but I'd love to see them break the bank for Muller.  Guy can pass and score, and can play anywhere in the midfield or up top.

Looking at the lineups that Santos has used over the past two weekends and then earlier in the year before CCL started, it looks like they have been using the same lineup all along, with maybe one or two exceptions.  It doesn't look like they rested any starters to get ready for tonight.  Between hopefully some player fatigue, the long flight and cold weather, maybe they'll be a little flat tonight.

They lost 3-0 this past weekend.  I don't know their lineup so I don't know how many starters they rested, but Furch, their big forward, played 90.
