Is hard right now cause were missing out star ST and 3/4 of a back four so things are skewing negative right now.

Saying that there is room for improvement on our roster. Can we not find a backup LB to an mls standard for 100k? That way we can just focus on Duncan being a RB and LB can back up taxi.

Two other areas for me is a destroyer 6, some one who can come on and just kill games. I dont have names but there must be some one who can spot start but mostly come on for Davis / RZA the last 20 mins and just take cards and be physical to hold a lead.

Last is obvious and will be costly but a difference maker attacking RW. I love Muyl more than like everyone but right now we have a chance at a title adding a all star level RW, soon enough like maybe next year were gonna have to start filling holes once BWP, Kaku, long, taxi, start to go and I fear well just replace all stars with youth guys and just stay middle of the pack.

We have one of the lowest payrolls in MLS. We can find another backup LB.

CCJ and Davis start. Rza comes on to close it out.

We have always needed one more DP quality piece in attack to push us over the top. However, if they arent going to spend I think swapping Murillo and Muyl would be a two birds one stone situation.

I love Muyl coming off the bench to close out wins, as a spot starter, and a wingback option in a 5 man defense. RB/LB in a 4 man defense may take more time.  The lock he has on a starting spot over more dynamic attacking options is what frustrates me about him. I think Etienne's development has been particularly affected by the amount of minutes Muyl gets, which is crazy to me given their relative upsides.


RED. BULL. OUT.

For me, Muyl is like James Milner.  He is never going to do anything particularly exciting but he is athletic, works as hard as anyone and is an all around competent player.  Etienne on the other hand will do something exciting every so often but also contributes little aside from the moments of excitement.

If he got the consistent minutes Muyl got I think we'd see more consistent excitement.

I've also made that comparison here before... but never will again after that last PK.

Sign Dunn. Pretty sure she could hold her own in MLS.

Former academy player that saw time with NYRBII last year and was playing with our U23s earlier this month, John Murphy has been scooped up by DCs USL team, Loudoun United.

Had a ton of raw talent and good soccer IQ, but not sure he would have made the USL team regularly here. Wish him the best.

Hearing Florian Valot received his green card.
Certainly helps him keeping a roster spot after two ACL surgeries.

Speaking of the uswnt, it wasn't long ago when Rapino finished like Etienne, which is to say, badly. Since they play similarly, there is hope.

We're at 27 goals allowed already. We were at 33 all of last year. No replacement for Adams on the horizon.

unless he starts taking PKs and free kicks like her, where most of her goals happen, that doesn't offer much hope
