#1361942 Some people think the 2017 Open Cup run was lucky

You can take something serious AND be lucky.

Almost every single-elimination tournament winner had some luck along the way.  Its the nature of the beast.

#1361761 Red Bulls need more diversity?

Posted by RedBullScouse on 19 February 2020 - 10:29 AM

He played for us for a lot of years, never a peep about him being a bad guy or a problem. 2-days after a transfer, then you leak these reports. So similar to how the Eagles tried to smear DeSean Jackson as being a gang member right after trading him. Just horrible.

How come you never published Kemar being a bad guy before?

That report was the first Ive ever heard of your website. I thought it was weak and unethical. I, for one, will never look or aknowledge your site ever again.

If others enjoy your site. more power to them. Every person has the freedom to like what they please.


 

Why would anyone talk shit about their guy while he was on the roster?  There were definite questions raised about his slow return from int'l duty, and there were reports when he talked about players from his region not getting respect.

Article feels Red Bulls need more diversity. Thoughts?

Whatever the merits of the argument, if any, this poorly written article is full of nonsense.  Murillo was denied "the dignity of being allowed into the 18 of what could have been his final game"???      A "lunchpail" attitude is a white kid thing?

I smell...

 

racism.

 

(Cincy coach just quit over a racist remark.)

Wait.. when did Marge Schott's heirs become part of the owners group?

At least we have several options at ST, even if nothing to write home about. What happens if Royer declines or gets hurt? Will Stroud be even MLS level?

its like the buffet at Golden Corral... bad food but plenty of it


#1361454 Armas Press Conference 2/13

"Asked Chris Armas what his expectations are for 2020 season given that much of team that finished in sixth place last year is back.

He said he's not thinking about the playoffs or MLS Cup and no one is talking about. He added his focus is on excellence & the process."

Well I'm glad nobody is thinking about the playoffs, because with our roster now, we're probably a good 2-3 spots out of it.

I really have no problem with this.   Do the work, and the results will come.   Be the best you can be.   One drill at a time, one half at a time, one game at a time.   Its fine and appropriate for us to here to bemoan whether we have the talent to win it all, but that stuff is just a distraction for the coach and players, especially in pre-season.  Keep the boys focused on the work.   At some point maybe it will be time for a big rah-rah inspirational, aspirational speech about keeping an eye on the prize, but we are far from that point.

Posted by RedBullScouse on 14 February 2020 - 08:12 AM

I get it, I just dont think its as stupid of a signing. Weve never been able to make the 4-2-2-2 work, well probably see a decent amount of formations with a winger.

Chicken/egg, cart/horse.... we haven't  been able to make the triple deuce work because we haven't had the right players for it.

What else could be a factor? A few thousand (or tens of thousands, at most?) saved  in annual salary to get someone cheaper is certainly penny pinching, but what other reason would there be?

They probably want to make room for some young announcer they're grooming for the Salzburg stadium.

How does a PA announcer affect attendance in a negative way?

 

Just ridiculous.

 

The real answer is they probably got someone cheaper. Same old Red Bull.

 

Hope Bob lands on his feet.

Needed to get someone younger, who will press

.....

 

Moving forward, Hamlett said the team has money to spend and know they have to add players to strengthen the team all across the pitch.

“We have set up ourselves with our budget that we are in a good position to bring players in to make this team stronger,” Hamlett said

 

Oh, really? How's that going?

It's going about as well as the "stadium improvements" that forced us to put up those "temporary" tarps

Are any of Egbo, Jensen, or Sims even in camp yet? Not only are we not signing players, but the ones we have signed arent here yet.

Camp is a waste of time.   Everyone makes the playoffs, and they have all season to gel as a team... or so it has been explained to me when I called it failure not to have an improved roster locked down before camp.
