#1375461 Incorrect salaries reported

Posted by TK_RBNY on 25 November 2020 - 09:03 PM

No way Lema is making 200,000. Probably at MLS reserve minimum 55-70k or so. That site is not accurate, and MLSPA isnt releasing salaries this season.

#1375355 Offseason will be a bloodbath

Posted by TK_RBNY on 24 November 2020 - 12:13 PM

If we assume everyone's on a standard 3 year guarantee + options, that'd be whoever signed in 2018. From the transfer list that season I see Kaku and CCJ as the internationals (did CCJ ever sign a new contract?) and Mines and White as the homegrowns

Is it always 3 + an option? Seems excessive

CCJ signed an extension in February


Davis and Royer signed new contracts 1 day apart in 2018, team has an option on Davis for 2021, assuming similar language in Royers contract that would be true for him as well.



#1375302 Struber didn't start Kaku

Everyone on here complains about the quality of the roster, but also believe this team was capable of making a Cup run.

Cmon lol.

I think the failures of previous top RBNY teams have made fans believe that we have to luck our way into a Cup. Quality is still going to win out a majority of the time.

Maybe we wouldn't be in the off-season if we hadn't undervalued Etienne's talent and potential for years. Same old RB. I bet he's hoping Pendant comes back.

The last thing that guy needs is RedBull fans giving him a bigger ego by gassing him up.

Davis is a disaster

#1374925 Kaku and Casseres called up for November World Cup Qualifiers

Posted by TK_RBNY on 20 November 2020 - 07:28 PM

Have they arrived back in NJ?

I think the team posted photos of Kaku with the team on Twitter and Instagram

#1374895 Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

You only get one chance to make a first impression.   You can lose a locker room quickly if you come in unprepared and screw things up

Half of the schmucks hes coaching on Saturday are going to be shipped off or their roles reduced in 2021

Small tactical tweaks after a few training sessions, the rest is up to the players in a match where they are already favored to lose

It could be argued the decision was a mistake if we lose...

We could and probably should lose either way. Strubers team now.

I personally would have let Carnell finish it out, but the guy global spent 2 mill on is here now and I imagine it isnt a good look to keep him off the sideline despite all the extenuating circumstances.

This team every year seems less and less interested in MLS retreads, so I cant imagine older players from the worst team in the league are on their radar

#1374161 Samuel Tetteh To New York Red Bulls

Posted by TK_RBNY on 31 October 2020 - 09:12 AM

BWP was a trialist who didnt immediately demand a DP spot or TAM money to keep around.

Tetteh would be one of the higher paid players on the roster if he is with RBNY in 2021, I dont see it.

#1374072 Samuel Tetteh To New York Red Bulls

Posted by TK_RBNY on 29 October 2020 - 01:50 PM

Decent cameo and good run that created the corner which led to the goal.

Still not much more time to make a significant impression that would demand keeping him around long term.

Looks more of a winger or support player than a striker, which isnt ideal.

Probably the best combined match from the CB duo this season.

If they play like that consistently in 2021 and there are some reinforcements in midfield and the attack + Strubers higher energy system things could get better quickly

On the other hand. Davis and Rzatkowski offered nothing in even this lesser pressing system under Carnell, so I find it hard to see them here or playing regularly for Struber.

Thought Carnell got the subs right and took off the right 3 players when he did. Tough for Clark to have an impact when the midfield was nearly anonymous for 60 minutes

Keane Lewis Potter
Luke Jephcott

fit the Thelwell profile

Hope if they bring in a U22 striker they bring in someone with a little more experience as well.

I feel like I say this in the match thread every game, but "It will come" is only a valid excuse for a player who actually has a history of scoring.  Someone without a history of scoring at MLS level and who keeps hitting balls directly at the GK or off target... that's just a bad striker.

I get it, you arent going to shit on your own player in the media. Still strange how much of an opportunity he is getting to start regularly.

I think he was Thelwell's 1st signing. I think he stays, but leaves next July. 

I still contest that fact, because Hamlett was quoted in the press release. Thelwell, Yearwood and Tetteh. Thelwell had been here for a month when the signing was announced but I wonder if Fernie and Hamlett did the leg work on that one.
