Topics I've Started

No homegrown deal for Borges

Yesterday, 07:51 PM

Sounds like Borges is off the table.


A bit of a shock. He trained with the team almost every time there was a break from Michigan.

A couple years ago, this would have been a sure bet, but looks like the HGP class this year may just be Kyle Zajec.

Marcus Epps taken in Waiver Draft

11 December 2018 - 08:18 PM

Tomorrow, 12/12 at 4pm

Not like we are going to take anyone from the draft, but... there is a first for everything.

Some names available:
Former NYRBII defender and original, Mike da Fonte
Acadmey stud John Murphy's brother, James
Former academy superstud that we were all scared to lose: Adam Najem

Escobar, Politz, Kutler, Redding and Rza available as former Red Bulls.

Just acquired the defender from Orlando. Exchanged a 4th round pick.

Plays mostly left back but can play CB or left wing. Egyptian International. Played 20 games this season with Orlando.

He was the option outside of Redding last year.

My only concern us that I believe he was on loan?
EDIT: He was transferred completely this past season.

FCC Expansion Draft

10 December 2018 - 06:15 AM

Just some added context for tomorrows expansion draft.

Draft involves 18 teams, FCC can only select 5 players, 1 max from each team.

If we do lose a player, we get $50k GAM from MLS.

Players on our reserve/supplemental roster would need to be placed on the 20 man senior roster for FCC.
Our reserve/supplemental roster is:
Etienne Jr, Ndam, White, Louro, Mines, Bezecourt, Muyl and Valot.
Some of these are no brainers to add to the 20 man senior roster, others might help make protecting players easier, also HGPs are automatically protected.

Must protect players with no-trade clauses.
HGPs/Gen Adidas automatically protected.
DPs not forced to protect.
Need to protect at least 3 INTL players.

2019 NYRBII USL Thread

06 December 2018 - 06:16 AM

With schedule being released on Monday (12/10), I figured now is a good time to start this thread.

In the meantime, some former player movement (I will update this by making edits to this post as changes happen):
Speedy Williams may not get a chance to win a 4th USL Cup in a row as he wasn't retained by LouCity. Bring back the lucky Speedy!

Tampa Bay is keeping their number of former Red Bulls alive. Despite not resigning Flemmings and Bonomo (they did resign Najem), they signed Brandon Allen.

Junior Flemmings is onto Phoenix Rising, where former academy and U23 player Joey Farrell was re-signed.

Zach Carroll is staying with 1868, Swope Park resigned Justin Bilyeu (and former academy player Ethan Decker)

Tyler Ruthven resigned with ATL2.

GK Kyle Reynish retired.

Konrad Plewa will return to RSLs reserve team.

Kosuke Kimura and Bolu Akinyode will return to Nashville SC.

In Sacramento, Rafi Diaz returns and they are negotiating to keep Jeremy Hall.

Former U23 player, Thomas de Villardi signed with Austin Bold after being plagued by injuries while with Minnesota United.
