You guys are nuts lol. Its August, we're currently in a position to host a playoff game, we had a great Open Cup run, and half a dozen people are passionately convinced that the rest of the season is literally a waste of time.
I don't know where in the entire history of MLS you guys got the idea that only rosters with zero gaps are capable of winning MLS Cup. We're a good team, and especially when hosting some playoff games anything can happen. I cannot wrap my head around the wallowing some of you guys let yourselves fall into sometimes. Or the wallowing that some of you are permanently entrenched in. I'm having fun watching this year's team.
I kind of hate the narrative that has formed around the idea that MLS rosters have holes because of x,y, and z. That applies to teams that build their roster in a very specific way, see Toronto or Atlanta where they are dropping bags of money on 3 high priced DPs.
I expect those rosters to have holes, those teams are banking on their top level talent to carry them over the top.
There is less of an excuse for RBNY to willingly play the entire season with 2 natural CBs, even if Reyes wasnt injured they would only have had 3, a single viable LB, and Dylan Nealis as your starting RB.
RBNYs success isnt due to front office competence, and imagine where they would be if they even attempted to play with 3 DPs, 3 U22 players, and not 5 open senior roster spots.
Not going to celebrate 3rd/4th in the East. The players and Struber should feel good about that because their own organization does not believe in them enough to support them, but as a fan its not good enough.
Id rather they try and fail than not try at all.
