thinking more about Schnieders comment about bringing in veteran leadership and cited Pavel Pardo - isn't that like........
even if they drop a huge $$$ I don't think Long is staying.
If they wanted him, they should have already extended him I think. At this point, there's no way Long signs back on - he's going to have comparable money elsewhere and will not have the Dax, Robles, BWP, Davis, "deadman walking" RBNY vibe.
Tangentially, I would not be surprised if one of Schneider's immediate issues with the order of RBNY's house is that Hamlet and co are going to let a USMNT captain, who was fully developed at RBNY, walk without getting any transfer fee. I love long, but the time to sell him was the summer. Could have gotten a few million and reinvested. The only reason not to sell would be if the team was putting together players to make run in 2022 - clearly that wasnt the plan.
