So sorry to hear about Bob. I always thought he did such a great job.


Knowing Red Bull, I wouldn't be surprised if they're replacing him with a DJ or ring announcer type.

Anybody know any AD San Carlos chants to sing during this game?

Return to your other hobby!
Time to update some classic voting:

The fact that Alexi Lalas was only an 11 seed proves that the MF Hate Bracket needs a reboot.

Are there any names on the list of free agents that are of interest?  I think Meram, Beitashour and Rowe aren't too bad

Personally, I hope that they sign Jeff Larentowicz. I'd like to be able to boo that asshole every week instead of just once or twice a year.

If Red Bull is still the owner (spoiler alert: they will be), I say we go all in on the Red Bull system. The average age for this years starters at Salzburg and Leipzig is about 23. The age of our starting lineup last night was about 26. The entire second half and AET was played in our half because we can no longer keep up the press for 90 minutes.


Let Red Bull's great international scouting staff find us some young talent that aren't ready to feed to the big club and give them to us to get some quality minutes.


For coach, I say hire Robert Klauss. He is a 34 y/o assistant manager for RB Leipzig and has already managed at their youth, U-17 and U-19 levels.


Maybe it will work, maybe it won't, but at least it should be entertaining.

I can't wait until we start giving out numbers in the 100's like Mexican youth teams.



There is the alphabet and other symbols first!

well, they're in ORL for tmw's USOC game. do they field as best a first XI as possible, or do they save some guys for the game against us?

I don't know how many guys they can save. They are banged up and only dressed 15 players for the game last Sunday.

Santos plays Saturday night at 8 pm at Leon. Hopefully we'll be facing a tired, jet-lagged, cold (kick-off in the 20s) and disinterested team on Tuesday.

#1341143 Stream quality of Yahoo sports

Posted by Speedball on 21 February 2019 - 11:44 AM

iphone and ipad video quality were good for me. yahoo app on roku just kept putting out an error code and did not work at all. computer hooked up to a tv with hdmi cable was pretty good quality but not great. no freezing or crashes for entire game.

I had the same error code issue with Roku. I then hooked my desktop up to the TV and the stream quality was OK.

Does this mean that I now have to show the guy at the top of the section my phone? That would be a hassle.

#1338954 2019 "Super"Draft

Posted by Speedball on 11 January 2019 - 03:01 PM



Ives got it right:


22. NEW YORK RED BULLS - Roy Boateng, UC-Davis, Central Defender

The Red Bulls need center back depth after unloading Aurelien Collin and losing Hassan Ndam in the expansion draft. They could be tempted to take Virginia bruiser Prosper Figbe, but Boateng is more athletic and counts as a domestic player due to him possessing a green card.

Thing I just learned: Dane's middle name is actually "O'Brian", not "Party".
