#1327892 Robles looked like a fool

Posted by thoward18 on 17 June 2018 - 10:43 AM

Don't know why you're shitting on the OP. Snarky replies won't hide the fact that Robles hasn't looked automatic anymore as he did a few years ago. The gap between him and Meara has slowly but obviously been shrinking over time.

Imagine for a second if I wrote a post titled,"Global Warming???" and then wrote about how I think we need to do something about the environment because my ice cream melted in my car faster than I expected.

 

Yeah, there is merit to a discussion about global warming. But my reasoning is fucking laughable.

Ndam looked very good in his tackles. Still needs to work on his positioning within an organized backline but he's young and new to the first team, so mistakes are understandable.

 

Colin is done, I'm sorry to say. He was very good for two years but age and injuries are doing their thing to him. He just isn't quick enough anymore. I'm hoping he gets phased out, with Ndam getting the 3rd-string CB job.

I agree. Goalkeepers should be perfect. Any mistake is grounds for immediate extermination.

We took an American out of Vancouver, brought him to his hometown, and helped make him into a national team player. But sure, we should instead be forced to overpay for some 31-year-old asshole in the Belgian league. Fuck this bullshit.

Davis out before Royer is a joke. He's been arguably the team's third-best player this season.

I'd much rather Miazga play a key role in Eredivisie then fuck around in a rotation for Crystal Palace. He shouldn't move to a tougher league unless it's for a team that will give him a consistent starting role.

Fuckin A.  We are so g-damned spoiled to have MF.   No other fan base has a resource anything close to this.

If this website ever closed I think I'd have a fucking aneurysm.

I love that so many people instantly have assumed the worst in so many ways and started cursing Red Bull for a result they imagined into existence lmao.

I'm tempted to start Meara regardless. He played incredibly well, and Robles has played a fuck ton of minutes the last 5 years. We're in a comfortable spot. Rest wouldn't be the worst thing for Robles.

BUILD. THE. STATUE.

I wouldn't be shocked if he already has and that's the reason this is picking up steam again.

There was an article in Argentina recently in which Kaku said he speaks to players back home and that many of them want to come to MLS.

What?

RBNY are the second-best defensive team in MLS this season. Robles' impact goal numbers is pretty average. Granted, he also has an impact in terms of organizing the defense, suppressing counter-attacks with clearances, and overall locker room leadership. Even still, Long has been more important to preventing goals so far this season than Robles has.

Long out before Robles is legitimately dumb. Sorry.




#1325206 Will Marsch go?

Firing Bruce was the dumbest decision in this club's history... and that's a hard list to get to the top of.

 

I just don't think he will buy into the mothership's philosophy.

Bruce would be an example of hiring someone for his past success instead of for what he can bring in the future. MLS - and soccer - have changed significanrtly in the last 5 years. I'm not exactly thrilled about the idea of adding a guy whose success was based on having a bunch of superstars do superstar things. 




#1325051 Sacha to somewhere

Posted by thoward18 on 06 May 2018 - 12:00 PM

I kind of wish we could just enjoy the team now without making it a Sacha pissing contest. He had a great run with the team. Now it's a new era.
