#1347192 Reyna quit in 2008

Posted by MetroFanatic on 05 June 2019 - 08:00 AM

He was too broken down to contribute, but IIRC made it very difficult for the team to cut him and free up the salary cap space we desperately needed.  They eventually worked it out  in time for the summer window.   Maybe I'm misremembering, but I don't think so.   

You are correct. IIRC, his retirement didn't actually clear cap space -- he got paid off. It just cleared a roster spot.

Calling it right now. We win the open cup this year which makes it impossible to fire Armas despite the team playing like absolute dogshit for the whole season.

5-1-1 in last 7 games. Not really playing well, but getting results.

SuperLiga 2.0

 

If we ever qualify for this, I hope they send the U-23 team. Not even RBNY II.

 

We got two real preseason international cups already, thank you very much!

#1346561 Metro - Vancouver Game Thread

Posted by MetroFanatic on 23 May 2019 - 11:20 AM

Vancouver's not good, we but absolutely dominated the the first half hour with 90% posession and a ton of chances created. Nealis was the only guy out there who looked out of place, and even he would make the bench on a lot of MLS squads.

Just four days ago, Nealis made a heads-up play (one that few MLS center backs make) that helped win the game vs Atlanta. Yesterday, he fucked up.

 

You take the good with the bad... that's the definition of an MLS player.

I may be wrong but for the tourney Cosmos B was Cosmos B in name only because they were eligible for the tourney and the main team wasn't. They played their A roster.

There is no such thing as Cosmos A anymore. So Cosmos B is a reserve team for... what exactly, I'm not sure.
