This. I mean you can't expect everybody in marketing/engagement/social media to just twiddle their thumbs until the team wins a game. And yeah they're leaning in hard on the RB family of team angle--but it was it is at this point and they're not being surreptitious about it. 
The question on my mind is will Marsch and Adam be in the mood to talk to fans for 30 minutes if they get crushed by Bayern?

Hey I have a great marketing idea: go out and spend some money to get some good credible players instead of relying on guys coming from a league where 99% of the players will never make it at a higher level. Maybe spend some of that soda money on the type of difference makers who could actually win a championship (which is literally the best marketing tool possible).
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Oh god, I don't want to predict this one.  Predict it'll be ugly for Metro.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

I mean I feel you, but pretty sure the guys putting these events together aren't the same people responsible for player acquisitions and transfers.

So instead of doing some light rotation on Wed...he plays the same 11 on short rest. Predictably we lose. Now we get a brand new 11 on the road. So fucking stupid

This is just sarcastic shitposting right? There's no way an alleged MLS team would throw out a lineup like that for an actual league match so I'm going to presume you are joking.

This is a serious meme lineup, one that we'll look back on in 5 years and (hopefully) laugh at.

Armas is trying to send a message and/or (probably and) there's some serious lockeroom drama going on. 10 changes! Only Tarek stays. Long, Rza, Royer, Robles didn't travel. Muyl doesn't even dress after contract extension. Bizarre.

Long was injured no? The rest of the squad would have been playing their third game in 7 days. Surprised about Robles too. Although someone said he took a knock after the Wednesday game

Nice goal by casseres. Even better play from Ivan(?!) out on the flank. Probably the best I've ever seen from him
