Lots of really good free agents in Europe this summer.   Assuming we will come back and RBNY had saved money on purpose to improve the team during the summer window which two of this list would you take:
David Silva
Thiago Silva


Can you please list this players again with their position, team, leagues, age, and full age.

#1364053 All coronavirus-related arguing

Posted by GMoney on 20 March 2020 - 10:12 PM

Im positive for COVID-19. I found out my results on Tuesday.  Let me tell you:  it sucks.  

I have been sick for six days, but luckily have been spared the worst symptoms.  My pulmonologist started me on Kaletra and Plaquenil immediately (in fact, he starred me on the Kaletra before I even had my positive test results, because I am in an at-risk category).  I have no doubt that this timely intervention was key to minimizing my symptoms.  I had developed difficultly breathing and a fever, which the drugs seem to have sorted out.  Not everyone has access to such exceptional care, sadly.  So, others will not be so lucky.  

However, its been no walk in the park.  Ive had diarrhea since Sunday, am constantly achy and can barely keep my eyes open.  No amount of sleep does any good. So, please, do what you can to: a) avoid getting it yourself; and b) avoid passing it on to others who might be more at risk than you are.

Im so sorry to hear that.  I truly hope that you and your family are okay.

Another has died:

Yeah, my son is still sick.  I am in the process of trying to get him an appointment for a test at a mobile testing site that been set up in our town.

For this if you who are discussing politics.  Please know any intelligent people completely ignore what you say when:

A). Youre a Democrat and your point of view is.....everything Republicans do is bad.

B).  Youre a Republican and your point of view is....everything Democrats  do it bad.

It shows that youre a lab rat with no ability to think for yourself.  Intelligent people just ignore you and laugh.

Ill let the medical and scientific experts on the board get back to telling us how it should be!  The people who never put. Any thought into this before and will never talk about it again after a year from now.

How much does it suck when someone who knows nothing about soccer tells you all about the game and what needs to be done to make it a more mainstream sport?  Thats who you guys are right now.

My specialty isn't infectious disease but I've been in EMS since I was 19 and learned a lot from experience... Virus can go away as fast as they outbreak. I think the self quarantine a way that on paper should stifle the spread of it. But public sanitation and education on how it spreads is key. Stay home hydrate

Thank you for all of the people who help.

Why are some people so stupid?

Can we have like FIFA Red Bull tournaments against each other??

That would stop me from reading a lot of the drivel that makes my eyes bleed in this thread.

#1363559 French left back Jason Pendant

Posted by GMoney on 12 March 2020 - 09:40 AM

Does anyone actually know (not assume) if we paid a transfer fee to get him out of his contract early?

It would be ironic/Metro if we paid a fee, then he couldnt come until summer anyway.

#1363347 French left back Jason Pendant

Posted by GMoney on 10 March 2020 - 11:14 AM

Diggin deep for the Djorkaeff reference

Not really.  If you think about it, hes French.  He called out the 2 famous, French, World Cup winning players who played for us.

Makes sense.

Whats doesnt make sense is no specific call out of the Erirates Cup.....LOL

#1363342 Omir and Duncan on provisional Olympic roster

Posted by GMoney on 10 March 2020 - 10:55 AM

Its no embarrassment, thats a strong team.  Cannon is getting starts with the Sr. Nats, tough competition for Duncan.

The forwards are all known names and accomplished.

If we qualify, I hope our guys get selected.

Yes, you can maximize someones potential.  But it will never turn a slow runner into a fast runner.

Definitely, timing and positioning are important and can be coached.  But isnt he like 23-years old?  Its not like hes a kid.

Regardless, I didnt see tha game and I hope best for him and the team.

Ive never seen him play but I hope he is good.

I think that should be everyones assessment at this point.

Posted by GMoney on 09 March 2020 - 08:10 AM

I was away this weekend and didnt see the game.

Nice to see us get a result.  Sounds like we were dominated though.

I was really nervous in the first game that our rookie left back seemed lead-footed during a sprint back.  I didnt post that because I didnt want to be a negative Nancy after a first game win.  Seems like others are noticing it and he got exposed.  Unfortunately, his sprint speed isnt really going to improve over time.

Im looking forward to our first game vs a MLS team.
