#1380116 Lineup for 2021

Posted by Komba on 05 March 2021 - 02:33 PM

If we signed that Sead guy and hadn't traded Parker, I could feel reasonably optimistic about this team.  Outside of that, there are just too many unknowns and one thing I've learned over years of being a fan, so many unknowns don't work out.  I'll be at every home game rooting, but I just don't see a team that can honestly contend for a title.




#1380002 Cameron Harper from Celtic

Posted by Komba on 02 March 2021 - 04:32 PM

Yeah, I never mind getting guys like Harper, we just needed a no doubter on top of it all.  At least one no-doubter.




#1379928 Youba Diarra on loan from Salzburg

Posted by Komba on 01 March 2021 - 04:56 PM

He looks really mobile from that video which is good but that's also before 2 knee surgeries?  I'm hopeful but hard to expect a lot.




#1379796 Lineup for 2021

I'm starting to lean towards there being a misunderstanding of the quality of MLS compared to what we have... That will prove out this season save a significant addition.




#1378411 Long to be loaned?

Posted by Komba on 29 January 2021 - 09:26 AM

Seems to be a real market for Long right now.  And if he actually does have any shot at going to Liverpool, we can't be standing in the way.  No matter how much worse it makes us.




#1377908 Haksabanovic linked to Red Bull, apparently to us

Posted by Komba on 23 January 2021 - 03:29 PM

In a normal world, I wouldn't mind this.  But with this team, there's no reason for anyone to be confident that the team will pivot and actually sign an alternative.


#1377708 Parker could be, and is, traded

Posted by Komba on 20 January 2021 - 03:27 PM

Then I would question why we weren't going to re-sign him.  The guy is 27 at a position where you can remain good after 30.  If he was a forward or a winger who's game was predicated on speed then I would understand.

 

It is what it is, but I disagree with the move.  I'm hopeful Reyes is good for sure.




#1377521 Parker could be, and is, traded

Posted by Komba on 18 January 2021 - 06:27 PM

This would be a big mistake...  And I really don't understand it.

I could only buy in if this was about not wanting to allocate so much money to the CB position but it's not like there's any reason to believe we'll put that money anywhere else. And throw in Long missing games, I'd actually move him first.


#1377367 Haksabanovic linked to Red Bull, apparently to us

Posted by Komba on 15 January 2021 - 03:17 PM

Yep, good news.  Well, hopefully good news.

 

Hearing, per source, that things are trending well with #RBNY & Montenegrin international Sead Haksabanovic (current club is Norrkoping). Two clubs are in "final negotiations" per source. No deal yet but optimism. Would be a DP.



#1376394 Austin Expansion Draft

Posted by Komba on 16 December 2020 - 10:25 AM

His USL numbers are great. His MLS numbers are meh. 21 matches, 3 assists. Lively, yes. Productive, not so much. Perhaps a better finisher like BWP could have latched onto his crosses.

I don't even think it's a perhaps.  His chance creation was right there with Kaku and it's not like he played a million minutes.  Stroud is a loss.  I would have been fine with them taking any other player but this one hurts the team.




#1376280 Austin Expansion Draft

Posted by Komba on 14 December 2020 - 07:04 PM

The only player I'd be annoyed at losing is Stroud.  The rest are fine to lose.


#1375775 Thelwell offseason press conference

Posted by Komba on 03 December 2020 - 09:34 AM

After watching this press conference, I'm not worried at all about Thelwell being aggressive to get players.  He's basically saying matter-of-factly that there will be every intention on bringing in multiple players. That will include spending.

 

 

Also worth saying that we are in really good hands with Thelwell. Feels similar to Jesse where you just kind of knew you were in good hands. 




#1375710 Samuel Tetteh To New York Red Bulls

Posted by Komba on 02 December 2020 - 10:21 AM

Too bad with him.  Had some ability but seemed okay just being a guy out there, didn't impose his will to really do some good things.




#1374532 Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

Posted by Komba on 09 November 2020 - 07:11 PM

Yep, this is Carnells ship for this season. He's earned it.


#1373955 Metro - Revs Game Thread

Posted by Komba on 28 October 2020 - 05:24 PM

I'm good with this lineup.  2 of our best players aren't starting in Yearwood and Kaku but have to figure they come off the bench.
