Or or or and stay with me, it could be that MLS rules are preventing RB from doing what they are doing in the other three clubs with RBNY. Im going to assume that's the only reason why Hamlet is still with team as an advisor at how the league works (wish it was someone else). Brought in new coach, new sporting director, let's see how this off season goes. If nothing happens and we bring in some 18 year old who runs a lot and has "a lot of energy" then I'll drink the RBNY is cheap kool-aid.
This is true for the strategy of buying 4-5 young players a year and hoping that the eventual sale of 1-2 of them would pay for the rest. In an ideal world, Jorgensen would have been one of 2-3 signings for ~2 million dollars, and once it turned out he was bad at soccer, we'd cut our losses. I get that that can't be done with MLS rules.
Leaving DP spots unfilled (and roster spots for gods sake) isn't the fault of MLS rules. It's the fault of an ownership who does not care whether we win or not.
I'm excited for what this offseason might bring... but am also ready for the same excuses that always seem to come down to "we can't match spending of other teams because XXX"
People in this forum would be more entertained by a lazy Rafa Marquez than a hungry dru yearwood because they know the players name
Wow, if only teams were allowed to sign someone older than 20 but less than 31. For the record, I'm a big fan of the Yearwood signing, but without actual talent in the attack, we have no chance in a modern day MLS.
"You want to go back to the days of signing 30+ year olds" is a strawman argument that literally nobody is making.
