#1373679 Metro - Chicago Game Thread

We're 3 spots above them in the Eastern Conference and have been playing better each week, who is setting those odds???


I don't think DraftKings, or any sportsbook for that matter, are very good at handicapping MLS.

Is Davis hurt? Couldn't help notice he not in 18 last two games? And we won both. Think I might be on to something when I said I he not that good, doesn't add value on the field, he's next Lade and Muyl? Looks like coaches see it too? Not trying to brag. I don't think a lot of players on the roster belong in the league. Just think it's time we move on from him.


Yes, he has been hurt. He wasn't benched. There's an argument to be had whether we are better with him in the Starting XI or without. Saying he may not belong in the league is a bridge too far. 

#1371863 Remainder of schedule

Why is the game at NYCFC at a venue TBA?
We let them use RBA this entire year....but then the game where they have to host us, they will magically find a different venue? We are getting fucked around here... :)+

Because Yankee Stadium will not be hosting baseball until next season after this weekend, most likely. End of next week, at the latest.

#1371323 Current Roster - Start, Bench, Move (cut, trade, sell, or demote) in 2021

Parker hasn't been an MLS starter for two years now. I hope to hell he refinds his form under Carnell, but the purpose of getting rid of Parker is to find an 
MLS- quality player. He takes up a huge portion of the salary cap. 


Being that he's still only 27, Parker would be one of the key pieces on the current squad that I'd like to bet on having a resurgence once we get the next coach in place. We've seen his quality pre-Armas. I understand the salary cap aspect, which could very well come into play and be the deciding factor, but given his age, I'd rather bet on him. If he was a couple years older, I'd definitely share your opinion.

My money is on Petke.


My money is on Olave. 6'3" and built like a friggin' truck. 

#1370858 Where is Thelwell?

Posted by General Robles on 03 September 2020 - 03:13 PM

Unreal how some people here are now defending Armas because they seem to care more about scoring points against me in some kind of Internet battle as opposed to the club playing well.


What's unreal is how much wrong you managed to pack into this one sentence. Your ridiculous take and ongoing narrative on Thelwell (not Armas) gets some push back and you play the martyr, then move the goal posts and attempt to frame it as people defending Armas. You started criticizing Thelwell 9 days after he was hired. It should not be a surprise that your ongoing critique of him is not taken very seriously by people. 

#1370826 Where is Thelwell?

Posted by General Robles on 03 September 2020 - 10:34 AM

Thelwell is directly contributing to the demise of this club by refusing to fire the terrible coach that is Armas.

Thelwell needs to put on his big boy pants and make a move.


Whatever helps fit your narrative. You were criticizing this guy literally 9 days after he accepted the job, so it's hard to take this seriously. 

#1370804 Where is Thelwell?

Posted by General Robles on 03 September 2020 - 09:15 AM

Is Thelwell scared to fire Armas or something?

Really makes you question Thelwell's intelligence that he hasn't fired Armas yet.


He's been in this job for 9 games in a Pandemic-staggered season. No, we really shouldn't be questioning his intelligence at this point. 

#1370747 Metro - Scum Game Thread

Posted by General Robles on 02 September 2020 - 09:29 PM

Lack of goddamn heart yet again. The scum was destroyed by injuries. We control the whole fucking game in every stat but we dont step on their fucking throats. Let me in that goddamn locker room and rip these players to shreds. They may night not like me but this is what they need right now. A good fucking talking to.

All this time here I was thinking this team needed a legitimate forward, more than one creative attacking player, a good coach, etc. Who knew all they needed was a pep talk.

#1370117 Has there ever been a Red Bulls team less exciting to watch?

09 had Angel.


I'll watch this team over 2009's team 8 days out of the week, Angel or not.

Most recently, 2009 is the easy answer.

#1369876 NYCFC banners in the South Ward

Posted by General Robles on 25 August 2020 - 10:47 AM

Dont care about this stuff. Its such an embarrassment for them and their fans that they have to use our stadium, add insult by the fact thats its really nice. They can imagine what theyll never have- a beautiful stadium with their colors hanging everywhere. At the end of the day, they have to go back to the worst MLS stadium after this.


I agree for all of it, except for the South Ward. I really don't care if they even decorate the North Ward. I perceive the South Ward being decorated as a slap in the face to our supporters. Especially since I've read that ESC and VA leadership were told, as recently as our last game, that the South Ward would remain untouched.
