#1357837 Kemar Lawrence wants out

Posted by robs0650 on 11 December 2019 - 01:59 PM

Lawrence calls out the front office for being penny pinchers...


"Lawrence, contd: "It always feels like we dont want to pay somebody to keep them or get the right persons. Always trying to save some money or do something the cheaper way instead of investing in somebody and watching it turn over, you get me?"

The way things are lining up this year, it doesnt seem like were in the mindset to run for a championship. It seems like were going back into a rebuilding structure, you get me? Im just not into all that, to be honest."

Doesn't seem like he will be sticking around here much longer. I still think he, Long and Kaku will be shipped out. Possibly Royer too.

I totally agree with Lawrence , If RB would put out a few $'s on Deserving  players (Kemar, Murillo -in 2018 best 2 outside backs in the League) they would be able to keep them It seems that RB does not want to spend on anything . The rest of the league is passing us ,look at NYC , Atlanta, Both La teams, KC , Toronto ,Seattle .

I also would expect Miami to join them.

Jorge Villafana ($600k), Brad Smith ($550k), Ronald Matarrita ($420k ) and Ali Adnan ($1.2M) all get paid more.

Kemar is worth as much as any of these players ,and  with Parker and Long getting 800K , RB should renegotiate his Contract 6-700k

Anyone who prefers Mines over Etienne is crazy.

When Mines isn't injured, he's still not a starter on the USL team. The guy needs steroids for a year, take the however many game ban, and maybe he pans out. Until then he gets muscled off almost every ball at the USL level, nevermind MLS.

totally agree

#1347266 Development around the Arena

Posted by robs0650 on 06 June 2019 - 05:57 PM

agree that is poor

Walk (if able) or take the shuttle from Newark Penn.

Park in Iberia or Newark Penn lots 20 min walk beats sitting in traffic for 1 hr

Post game near the arena and let the lot clear out

Items one and two should work for me , live in Pa -2 hr ride home --Thanks

#1347252 Development around the Arena

Posted by robs0650 on 06 June 2019 - 11:24 AM

I moved away from the area in late 2014, so unfortunately I haven't been to any home games since then. I was just wondering; what's the status of development around the Arena since then? Over the bridge, is it still just the garage, condos, empty field, and PATH station? I'd love to see it become a real neighborhood with things to do.

I attended game last week , 1st this year , still a gravel parking lot , took 1Hr to get out of the lot when leaving. They need to improve the roads into the Stadium and have a parking garage . RB Stadium is world class but the parking and roads into are at best high school level.

#1346446 Zizzo retires

Posted by robs0650 on 22 May 2019 - 05:19 PM

Note his instagram announcement is a photo from his NY days so he must consider his time here his most successful/happiest.

I remember a couple of years ago , the Red Bulls were training  in Fl and staying at the Omni Resort in Champions Gate . there was a scrimmage and , Zizzo was taken out at half time . My wife noticed Sal taking a pee in the bushes . He saw us looking and walked back by us and looked embarrassed, I gave him a "thumbs Up" and said when you gotta , you Go . he laughed . Later one of the Hotel people came by and told him there was toilets close by . We spoke later , he seemed like a nice guy.

When are we getting a Taxi statue outside RBA?

Taxi -Man of the match -my opinion- Best Left Back in MLS-  Royer had a  great game also .

He giveth and he taketh away, I 'spose. 

I have been a critic of Murillo this year But in my opinion,  that goal was on Nealis . I thought Murillo played a great game.

#1344546 Thierry Henry linked to RB coaching role

Posted by robs0650 on 17 April 2019 - 02:22 PM

Sometimes the best players just don't turn into even good coaches. Wayne Gretzky is a perfect example of that situation. He was an absolutely terrible coach.

TH did not have a stellar record from his stint in Monaco  France  , some comments --



#1341215 2019 Depth Chart

Posted by robs0650 on 22 February 2019 - 10:53 AM

Seriously tho, you all should be VERY high on Omir.


"Watch a player on the ball; that's how good he is on the day. Watch a player off the ball; that's how good he is."


Dude moved like an arrow to great spots pretty much every time he released a pass. I would not be at all shocked if he wins a starting job by early summer.

This what I saw in the 3 preseason games I attended , I say he will be a starter before long but i am not sure who he will replace

Posted by robs0650 on 02 February 2019 - 03:56 PM


2nd half started with 4 subs Nealis Loebe Murillo & DE7 Replacing Lade ,Duncan Muyl ,Tarek

At about 60 min with the score 0-1 (Penalty by Orlando -Hand Ball) remaining subs were brought in

White , Lema, Scarlett , Epps, Fernandez joined Nealis Loebe Murillo & DE7 for the remaining 30 mins along with Louro in goal .

My take on the game, first team looked a lot better than the Philadelphia game , saw some nice effort by defense , Tarek looks like he is a keeper .

Kaku looked good  , some really good passes , very active. Royer also look good , did  not see as much of Muyl as I did in the Philadelphia game

When the subs came in , I though Scarlett looked much better in this game, , Nealis looked solid in the back . Lema and Fernandez played some nice combinations going forward. Fernandez was the best player on the field today , his passing ,shooting & dribbling were top notch . I can’t wait to see him with the first team .He scored the Red Bull goal  Final 1-1


Did not see Ivan but the bench was on the opposite side of the field from us

That just can't be the only plan. We've been incredibly lucky, there's no way in hell having an academy/RB2 player launch straight into the upper echelons of MLS every year is sustainable. 


Why does Koffi's name keep coming up in the CM conversation? We've seen him play zero minutes, where's the hype coming from?

I was at the preseason game with Philadelphia,on Wed.  Koffi started the 2nd half . I was really disappointed in his performance , Coach took him out about 25 min. into the 2nd half  and he was obviously pissed . i hope his performance an aberration
