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

David Najem to Tampa Bay. Also, on the first page of this thread, been providing updates on other former first or USL team players from the past that we may see in 2018.


Junior Flemmings also just signed with Tampa Bay.

Heard that he was upset that he was supposed to be moved to the first team this season, but due to INTL slots that didn't pan out so had offers from other MLS teams (apparently not). Holds no grudges, but Tampa Bay isn't exactly a step above NYRBII.

Exactly... If he was welcome back by RB2, then why would he go to Tampa?

 

And right or wrong, the team basically chose Valot and Bezecourt over Flemmings.  I think they are correct with Bezecourt, dont' necessarily agree with Valot.

i think the main allure of playing on RB2 is that it is a pipeline to RB 1st team. If you remove that part of the equation, you are basically playing for a team that draws less than high school sports teams. I am not sure if Tampa does any better, but a change of scenery wouldn't hurt him.

Tampa Bay averaged about 6,000 people per game last season in a 7,500 baseball-turned-sort-of-soccer-specific stadium.

Home games through June 9th will be at Red Bull Arena then over to MSU. In the meantime, MSU will get to 5,000 seats (gotta get that D2 Compliance locked down).
