I just want Metro to win a title sometime in my lifetime.

Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

At RB, we need a guy that could provide service. We had a glimpse of that when harper played there but he was a reckless when he defended. I would like us to try to purchase andrew gutman and convert him into a RB.


Is Gutman 2-footed? You cant expect to convert a lefty to right back AND have him provide good service.

Wingers can play opposite side if they like to cut in and shoot, but you can't look for a defender to clear the ball and cross it wrong-footed.

i dont know if he is 2-footed. it is not ideal but he could still provide service with his left. i think he has enough quality that he could adapt and be an upgrade over duncan.

There are thousands of players we could get that would be upgrades, in their natural position.    No idea why ATL would let him go.

Gutman was one of Atlanta's best players this year he's not going anywhere.

Wilfrid Kaptoum would be a nice pick up. NE player that is currently out of contract. he was a bench player. midfielder, 26 years old. very good technical skill.

 

i think bruce made a mistake not playing him more. he normally plays CM.  he is a better technical player than casseres and amaya. His weakness is that he could struggle in duels. has a small build. I would like to see him on the wing if he was on this team. very good passer.

i think he is available because Atlanta has Caleb Wiley at LB. Caleb is 17 years old and has tremendous upside. He already started a few games for Atlanta this year. I would not be surprised if he is their starting LB next year.

Our front office literally laughed on social media at going after Blanco last year because he was 33, despite having a good season. Ronaldo is 4 years older.

makes all the sense in the world to bring in Ronaldo.  they can't be happy with so many empty seats.

If they cared about that, they would try to arrest the decline of the past half decade
