In Topic: Thierry Henry to Montreal

He was never BWPs biggest fan


Is that just based on him saying BWP should have 40 goals per year? That always struck me as Henry being Henry, nothing personal against BWP.

I think I'm in the camp of why bother with a TAM striker.  White when he was healthy put up really solid numbers.  Between him and Barlow, we should get solid performance up there.
 
Use the money at the 6 position.


MLS allows up to $4M in TAM to be spent in 2019, $1.2M of which is a total freebie. You could basically field an entire starting lineup of DP and TAM players if you really wanted to go full "win now" mode.

How are those as a percentage of the cap though?

 

Shouldn't matter all that much I think, we're not in cap trouble and haven't been since MLS started handing out TAM like candy.

Pair nagbe next to a destroyer with kaku infront of them...game over
 

We have Davis, the surprisingly expensive poor man's Nagbe!


In Topic: Is Robles out?

07 November 2019 - 10:02 AM

You guys see that our midfield and forward players were trotting out front of robles and our defense are mostly USL 2 level guys right?

 

Wish I could find the article now but towards the end of the year someone wrote up the difference between the Red Bulls expected goals allowed and actual goals allowed. In 2018 we let in a lot fewer goals than expected, usually a sign of great individual plays especially by the keeper. In 2019 we let in way more, something to the tune of a 17 goal swing in total. 

 

That stat isn't perfect, but I think its fair to say that Robles didn't make as many jaw-dropping saves this year as he had in the past, and even let in a few soft goals that were very out of character. I'm with jaomiq on this one, I don't think we should move on from Robles just yet but this last season was a step down individually for him.
