LAFC had to give up a 4th rd pick to get his rights. lol 

#1331036 Prepared for the transfer window

Posted by Eleazar on 03 August 2018 - 11:56 AM

It comes down to how much money Red Bull is putting into scouting and how much they are willing to spend to get the guys they scout.

Which right now looks like $0.


Agreed. They've improved with regard to opening the check book and not going all 100% Billy Bean-cheapo/MoneyBall on us, but it does feel like they are deliberately not using all the available mechanisms/resources to make the team better.


open roster spots, unused allocation $ that expires. but we have holes in this lineup/roster. had the injuries not occurred, then standing pat and improving via backfilling the roster with RB2 promotions is fine. but that's not the situation currently. and it's necessary to fill these spots to prepare for the next yr, so that they don't have to rush and panic. acquire players to prevent roster concerns, not acquire players to react to roster concerns. disappointing to see that there'll always be a "Stand Pat" crowd in this fanbase. very small-time thinking.

#1330974 Watching Etienne wiff chance after chance

if everyone wants Moreno in the mix, he's on a USL contract. they have to sign him mid season, like Beze last yr. and we're down to 1 spot on the roster, if we promote him. i'd rather import a player from elsewhere. i like moreno a lot, i've seen him a lot this yr. i don't think Moreno's a 9, like White.


DE scores great goals, but is not a great goalscorer. it's not amount of goals for him, i've noticed, but more "wow, now THAT was a goal". DE's a winger. if deployed there and plays against the nonplayoff teams in MLS, of which there are quite a few, he could thrive and eventually be the #3 winger on the team. 


if anyone can, go back and watch the DC game again. watch him and taxi on the left. DE even did some move on their Argy DP, Lucho Acosta.

Cincinnati is getting Adi for the USL 2018 stretch run. ingenious. they're coming up, they're getting a guy for next season and they upgraded BIG midseason. 


big ups to luke sassano.

Standing pat in this transfer window is going great so far. Just Andreas Ivan. Sure, we don't need a 3rd DP. Why should we?

Theres hope, Marsch never really gave him a shot there, but Armas already has. Other than the miss, I thought Etienne played well there. Hopefully, well see more.


the miss was GLARING, but he did seem to combine well on the flanks considering he's pretty much only seen time up top with the 1st team

I'm starting to get the feeling we are going to stand pat. Don't think that's the right move, but there has been zero chatter


that's fucking bullshit.

Dax should just shut the fuck up and learn don't raise your fucking hands to a fellow teammate. Once he learns that, maybe THEN and only THEN can the fucking words outta his mouth are worth listening to. What a fucking clown shoes fucking moment. Fucking joke of a captain. 



#1330329 Favorite Kit Combo

Posted by Eleazar on 25 July 2018 - 03:55 PM

i chose all red cuz there was no options for:


"red and black vertical stripes for home jersey, black or white shorts


"white and black vertical stripes for road jersey, black or white shorts"

#1330269 Formation options

Posted by Eleazar on 24 July 2018 - 07:18 PM

i stirred it up some by suggesting Hamlett pursues a 3rd DP, but a CB. a late 20s/early 30s no-nonsense defender from Serie A or something, with no worries about int'l call ups. a modern day Lubos Kubik or someone. best defense in the league gets better and we don't lose another league match and we break the franchise record for Goals Against. 


also having 3 CBs allows the RWB to have a little less defensive responsibilities, right? if we do sell Murillo, this may help take some pressure off of Lade or whoever lines up at RWB if we do go 3 CBs.

that's more than a dozen NYC blocks (North/South). kind of a hike. RBA is just close enough to the PATH, ~6 blocks (North/South). 

#1330211 BWP -- greatest player to have ever worn the shirt

Posted by Eleazar on 23 July 2018 - 07:53 PM

great thing about Davis is that as a starter, he's still relatively young and is a domestic player that costs less than $250k against the cap.

#1329989 Andreas Ivan

HSV is going through a lot, atm. Possible that if he signed with them, there'd be talent ahead of him in the depth chart. Here, there's not much depth anymore given the injuries. He went with the team with the higher possibility of PT. Plus, he wouldn't be the only Deutsche speaker on the team.
