#1339520 Club America wants Kaku

Posted by Eleazar on 23 January 2019 - 09:03 PM

Felipe was part of the mid-week youtube video leading up to his trade to Vancouver for Parker, so who knows at this point.

He wins us CCL and has a great Copa America, sell him for $15m minumum in late July.

#1339347 Club America wants Kaku

Lets call it what it is.  Why is this being debated?


...if RB does this they have no intent in competing for a title in any competition and need to get called out for that by the fans.


i wouldn't be surprised if there are ppl who feel this way. 


i knew it would be possible that this scenario of Kaku (or any other import) being sold could happen. any player from South America who is ~25 or younger have their careers to think about. if he wants to move and chase $$$ elsewhere, so be it. i don't begrudge him for it. RBNY has to be smart to prepare for these scenarios/contingencies in the transfer window prior...like finding a guy last July. standing pat essentially presents the possibility of a situation in which we are currently facing. the team should construct the roster to lend itself to withstand these scenarios during any given transfer window period.

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 $.
