#1338717 Attendance again

You saw how Felipe (and Paullo, and Digau) brought them in from Ironbound in huge numbers.   /s

That said, when we had Pacheco, I recall a noticeable number of El Salvador flags in GS.  Certainly not thousands, but noticeable.

I think a known Peruvian, not far past his prime, would get meaningful support.

 

When Kaka visited with ORL, there was some yellow jerseys. imo, had we got Schellotto instead of Cbus, i think we might have seen something. and there would've been a shit ton more Spanish chants in 101. that would've been awesome and hilarious at the same time. 

 

pandering worked a little when we had Amado. 

 

it would necessitate having a 1st XI level NT player. Cristian Cueva of Peru would've been too pricey ($9m deal to leave Sao Paolo FC). we're only gonna spend no more than $5m for another big player, if they even bother to snag one.




#1338615 Euro teams interested in Long

Posted by Eleazar on 29 December 2018 - 04:07 PM

I'd love to keep Long around but there is def a magic number out there that would be too good to refuse. 

 

We had the best backline MLS has ever seen last season, but it wasn't enough to win a cup.  Teams with mediocre/average backlines seem to be able to win cups. So, whatever? 

 

just judging from my POV, teams, despite being avg, when they create chances and finish them, are able to win cups.

they're not gonna spend that. 




#1338051 Amro Tarek

Posted by Eleazar on 11 December 2018 - 11:05 PM

Tarek is STRICTLY cover. nothing more nothing less. he's gonna get starts during the int'l windows that the starting backline will be called up for. he'll start during Gold Cup, I assume. At most, he's CB3 in the depth chart. this means that they'll sign 1 or 2 ex RBAcademy players to take up the developmental slots in the depth chart. need one more CB, gonna need 6 to compete in all the competitions we'll be involved in.

 

i absolutely love silly season. all this speculation for days on end.

Valot had some good games before getting injured. hell, he came on for an injured Rza in the Tijuana away game and gave BWP the assist for the 2nd goal.

kinda funny that both Veron and Sacha's salaries are basically just TAM level, only BWP is getting that Henry/Cahill DP $.

i would love to see them split ~$1.6m between the 2 of them.

OR

 

get another central midfielder for the 10. move Kaku to the left/right flank. when he was with Huracan, he played considerable minutes at LW, with some starts on the right and centrally.

So the outside midfield looks like this:

 

Royer 
Valot

Muyl 

Etienne

Ivan

 

I wouldn't mind the team finding another guy who fits from down south, and doesn't necessarily cost more than what they paid for Kaku.
