#1375336 Offseason will be a bloodbath

Posted by Brian.MLS on Today, 09:51 AM in MetroFanatic.com

Based on the calendar the league put out, eliminated teams must inform the league a day after elimination on exercised options and bona-fide offers.

Players already know if they will be back in 2021. Fans may know today.

Hero of the Year: ???

We are talking guys who actually played real minutes. If you counted guys who played a single game of course you could come up with worse.


Jorgensen (14gp) played in more games than two of the three guys you mentioned: Khano Smith (9), Dom Oduro (5)

Where does Barlow rank on the worst players in club history list? Honestly he is Oduro/Kahno Smith/Petrivallo level crap for me.


Well, well, well above Jorgensen

Barlow. Our "Thats So Metro" MPF moment.

Good from White and Stroud. Should have started instead of Royer and Barlow.

Don't worry we are down 2 with 5 minutes to play and Barlow is passing from the 18 to the center circle...

Too soon to start the "There is no offseason" 2021 thread?

Barlow, Davis, and Pendant are still on the field in the 66th minute, with one sub window left.

Kaku and Stroud are still on the bench.

At least with Carnell it was clear when changes were needed. Not liking the Struber era thus far.

Kaku for Davis ASAP

I'm okay if the "Captain Curse" continues this offseason.

This is nuts. Field player bouncing all over the line as a GK and makes a save. Not sure if that's legal. Game over... wait... ok, game over. Maybe.

This is very "MLS 2020"

Bonkers situation in NYCFC v Orlando right now. PKs. NYCFC has last shot saved by Orlando. But... VAR... for the most common type of keeper stepping off the line early.. So Gallese gets a second yellow for coming off the line early. Orlando forced to put in Brian Rowe... or can they? Ten minutes after all this, refs still trying to figure it out. Complete disaster.

too funny NYRB doesn't even make this list !
Why - per writer in the comments they are not even threat!

The 3 teams Seltzer listed that "need" the Cup the most have been in the league for a combined less time than any single one of RBNY, Revs, or Dallas.

Many of the writers at MLS are either decent writers with little to no knowledge of MLS, are new to the sport, just don't have enough of an understanding of the whole league and/or they focus on the "hot" teams to get some clicks (this is where Seltzer falls into. I liked his Americans Abroad pieces a few years back, but now a lot of pieces seem to be inviting negative feedback).

I don't blame them. Its not like there are 10-12 teams anymore and you can take in every team. I also know a lot of writers that have been around the league a long time that have struggled to keep up with the newer teams causing the same problem the other way.

Serious question:
 
What if a team has enough COVID cases that would have caused postponement/cancellation during the regular season? It has to be a forfeit, right?


About to find out?

MLS is chartering flights to get players back from international duty and avoid quarantine.

I might have time to watch the playoff game this weekend. Are the Red Bulls any good this year?


Did you see any NYRBII games in 2018/2019? If so, its those guys plus a few other guys that have underperformed.

Miazga starts for USMNT, Murillo for Panama.


Miazga, Ream, Adams vs. Escobar, Murillo

I don't see them waiving the 10-day quarantine rule for a USL call-up and if I were the other team, I would certainly protest. That would be risking the health of both teams.


Fair and good points, and most the teams with a USL team have integrated at least some of those players into their first team training already meaning they wouldn't be eligible either.

Some precedent with USL canceling both the League 1 and Championship finals.

But earlier rounds? Would have to be a forfeit to keep things moving along unless MLS allows the USL team (if the team has one) to be signed to short term contracts under a COVID exception rule.
