Oh man I remember this kid. Looked like he had great athletic tools but every single time the camera panned over towards our goal my blood pressure would spike and I'd think "why are you over there?!?!"


he made the Bouna experience seem tame haha.  This whole passage reminded me now of Keith Cardona, i used to think he would be really good.

Liefering fans were like us with Tetteh. Lots of hope that they landed an up and coming star GK. Instead he ended up playing a couple seasons for Indy Eleven when he returned a couple years later.

Team played a scrimmage against FC Motown today. Blended team of U19/NYRBII (essentially what NYRBII is shaping up to be in 2021). Per the FC Motown Twitter, Sowe had a nice goal.

Per the FC Motown Twitter


Does FCM have a better media presence than RB?

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

I think the academy has done a ton this year to promote the kids

Wonder when we start to get USL schedules and or first roster moves for RB2. Also very curious as to what the integration plan for 1st team rb2 guys is, i really think the fact someone had to sit out for 2 weeks in moving from one bubble to another rather than just making a bubble for everyone really hurt us more than any other team. I hope we do everything we can to have 1 bubble so we can have guys move from one to another like we had in the past.

Whatever happened to our attempts to poach Austin Brummett?

Currently, nobody is ready to make the jump but LaCava and Sowe are both close.

Interested to see how much Bo Cummins, Kenan Hot and Dantouma Toure factor in this year.

Kyle Zajec was out of contract, which historically over the past few years means he may get a first team deal (Metzger, Lema, etc...)

I like how they are grooming John Tolkin slowly. Hoping he has a stand out year at left back and/or defensive mid.
