I don't even think he got a fat contract, he's not a Designated Player and we're not using any TAM on him. Unless that's where some of Dax's GAM went, Ali may have actually gotten him to take a pay cut.


I'm sure he took a pay cut, but one from ~500k which would still make it a fat contract in MLS.

Sometimes I think the entire Red Bull existence has been some 19 year old kids football manager save file he only plays when he comes home drunk. - 'Mibabalou'

Not to mention that the Team spent all preseason playing against other MLS teams with half the games being played by RB2 squads. While you had FC Dallas doing preseason versus in-season teams down in South America. Goes to show you how serious our Management took the CCL.

I would lose it if Petke debuted as HC against us.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Yooo

Yep, surprised.  Was certainly wrong.

 

Now we get to see if he can coach though.  Always have leaned much more towards the end that Henry had more to do with those teams than anything.  He's not going to win an MLS Cup with that team or anything, but they do have talent.

I'm really happy he finally gets his shot.  I still think he was hard done by Curtis and oh yeah where is Curtis now...?  He said all the right things going into that offseason about leaning on the academy/youth/proven MLS vets etc.  Best of luck to him and I wish him the greatest success as long as it doesn't affect us!

such a great Seeing Red today with Mark calling out the fans for not showing up.

Also, 2nd email references people to stop whining about how hard RBA is to get to as the writer commutes from Rockland county.  talk about post game tailgating is the way to go as no rush to get to the game and allows the traffic to disappaite.  Couldn't agree more.

 

BTW - finally got into the Audi club - the cookies were INCREDIBLE!  Oatmeal chocolate chip with some other stuff.  just deadly!!
