1-0 at the half

Good 45, need another good 45.

I like that Wales is going to have to come out of their shell.

Thats a proper fucking goal

Nice run by Pulisic, nice slip through to Weah, excellent finish by Weah

Yep.  Just one more fork stuck in this franchise.

Permanent second class status

Red Bulls purchase and rebrand basically decimated an entire generation of hardcore fans and has ceded the market to City

Even with a new rebrand, I cant see a way forward

So yeah, I have zero sympathy.  Hope he enjoys his dirt nap

just caught end of philly-cincy game, if union wins the cup, we are dog shit.

Philly is what RBNY would be if they actually were competent and gave a damn

He gone.

And frankly, I cant blame him.  He has been clear on wanting more support from the FO/Ownership, but never got it.

I don't know what it is but this one feels different. What I mean is this is the same old story for years now. Nothing different here than so many years previous, but there's something about this one is kind of a breaking point for me. I don't know what it is. I don't mean in terms of my fanhood. I'll be a fan of my club until the day I die, but something is different.
 
We can all discuss what went wrong, what players need to go, Struber out, all of that. A lot of comments like that already, and all of them have valid points, but let's be honest here: no amount of player changes or coaching changes will fix the fact that we don't have a committed owner.


This year does.  I mean, after Henry, they decided to go with youth, but they also leavened with some vets and had competent people running things.  Then after Marsch  they went full out youth and zero investment.  But in that period (so 2019+), you could dismiss it as Armas being a schmuck.  Then COVID.  Always an excuse

This is the first full year where it is patently obvious to even the casual observer* that Red Bull does not give a damn thanks to their horrific summer window.  It can not possibly be overstated how awful that was and how obvious the message was from ownership.

I am hoping this is a tipping point for the fanbase, because this hostage situation (and thats what they are doing with this franchise at this point) needs resolution one way or another



*which excepts everyone here

Manoel has been totally invisible

The whole offense has been invisible

Because the switch off is mostly the offensive players/wingbacks while Long, Nealis, and Reyes are really good with the initial ball into the six?

I hate the handball rule, but rightly waved off.

Two years ago, thats considered ball to hand and the goal would have stood

Barlow now comes in for Manoel

Classy t-shirt lady
