#1392741 2021 salaries updated

Posted by MetroFanatic on Today, 01:03 PM in MetroFanatic.com

Klimala is a DP, so whatever. Coronel has proven to be worth it.

 

What do Pendant, Jorgensen, Egbo, and Jensen have in common?

#1392703 Metro - Columbus Game Thread

Posted by MetroFanatic on Yesterday, 08:04 PM in MetroFanatic.com

We've shutout four opponents in a row just twice:

 

The opening 4 weeks of 2007:

0:0 Columbus, 3:0 Dallas, 1:0 Houston, 1:0 Dallas

 

May-June 2016:

1:0 Chicago, 7:0!, 3:0 Toronto, 2:0 Seattle

 

The Toronto and Seattle game sandwiched an Open Cup 1:0 win over Rochester, so that run was really five.

We've chosen to be the U23 of America... that's the problem.

I used to love Jozy. To see him burst on the scene here, then go to Europe, score and struggle, then take part in my favorite non-Metro sport moment of all time (USA vs Algeria)...

 

I'm done with him. It's not just the T&T game. It's not just the 2017 playoffs. He's turned into a whiny, entitled bully. Sad, really.

Felipe's antics actually served a point, they helped us control the midfield. What point does this flopping serve?

Up until the Miami game, seeing Omir get so much as 10 minutes was enough to throw me into a tantrum. Glad things are starting to click a little bit more for him, although I'm still a bit skeptical the last few weeks aren't a flash in the pan.


He still makes wrong decisions at least 75% of the time.

#1392604 Playoff Trackers

Posted by MetroFanatic on 17 October 2021 - 06:19 PM in MetroFanatic.com

Dont we also have a pretty high rating by SPI?


Yeah, we're way overrated. I don't think their formula works even remotely well for MLS.




#1392596 Playoff Trackers

Posted by MetroFanatic on 17 October 2021 - 04:22 PM in MetroFanatic.com

I am guessing it is being driven by their SPI rating of NYCFC.  Not sure what goes into that formula, but if you sort the table by SPI, they rate NYCFC as the best team in the league, by far.

 

Not a ringing endorsement of that metric, lol


Their rating formula is complete garbage. Last year they had Miami as one of the highest-rated teams in the league.

Do not forget: David Villa is a serial sexual harasser.

Klimala is questionable.

Barnsley is shit under Schopp: one win, 7 goals in 12 games.

I watched two games via Universo on the NBC Sports App, so I would think the US game will be available via that.

Edit - just checked. Its on there


Didn't work. "You are not subscribed to that channel."

 

Stream, anyone?

I though you wrote Univision. Wasnt thinking sorry

(You dont get NBCSports then?)


I get NBCSports, but not Universo. And really don't want to pay for another streaming service (Paramount+).

Just like the old days.


I got to watch all four CONCACAF games on Thursday - two streaming, two on TV. So what if three were in Spanish. Its how I grew up


It's not that it's in Spanish, it's that I don't get Universo.

Makes it even more frustrating that the Haksabanovic deal fell apart over $1M, but they saw fit to spend even more on Klimala.

Not sure if Haksa was envisioned as the 10 in the diamond that Struber wanted to play, but he would have at least been a better option than starting the season with CCJ there and panic buying Amaya, who had looked better as a deeper midfielder with Cincy.

They replaced their DP CAM with a DP ST, like putting the cart before the horse. No service, no goals.


Haksa is not exactly tearing up the Russian league. 1 goal, 1 assist in 10 games/starts.
