#1338997 2019 "Super"Draft

Posted by Arsenal14 on 11 January 2019 - 04:45 PM

A poor man's Connor Lade? :huh:
His nickname is "Rico", which is almost as badass as his last name.

Rico Buckmaster.  I love it.

I hope he responds to everything people say to him with "hell yeah, brother."

Rece Buckmaster is a pretty cool name

He sounds like a hunting rifle.  I'm here for it.

Easy chant of "You Got Bucked" when he makes a good tackle too.

#1338819 2019 Schedule

Saturday March 30th Away at chicago at 1pm Est is awesome.  SeatGeek stadium is only a few miles from Chicago MDW airport and they run game day buses from the Chicago MDW airport "Orange Line "L" train" stop. So basically a bus to and from the airport and I have points on southwest to easily cover the fare. The early start time will allow me to fly in, go to the match and fly home the same day.

Those buses can be really inconsistent.  I waited an hour for one for the USWNT - Brazil match this summer and it never showed.  I had checked the CTA website; they should have been running.

If you get there and the bus is not there, take an Uber and hop out when you can see a path to walk to the stadium.  You might have to scoot down an embankment, but it's better than waiting 45 minutes in stadium traffic.

9/15 at Seattle and 9/18 at Portland looks like a really fun away trip.  Definitely going to look into that.

Jonathan Campbell would be a worthwhile pick for actual squad-building reasons.

David Villa would be a worthwhile pick because it would be pretty funny.

If we don't beat them by 7, I'll be disappointed.

#1337496 Who to root for in MLS Cup 2018?

Posted by Arsenal14 on 03 December 2018 - 07:44 PM

Depending on the result of MLS Cup, either Portland or us will play Atletico Pantoja of the Dominican Republic in the first round.

That's a borderline automatic quarterfinal spot.

I'm rooting for Atlanta.

Keyword in this press release is "transfer" and not "sell". I doubt we are getting any significant kickback for this. I could obviously be wrong though, maybe Austria will be willing to sign some bigger checks this January.

MLS almost always uses "transferred" instead of "sold."  It's bizarre terminology, but they're pretty consistent about it.

Lade has been a fine servant to this club, but if this is how he's going to play when called upon, he's gotta go.  He took 8 steps in the wrong direction on that goal.

"Hey, we won the Supporters Shield and our first playoff series!  Sweet!"

"Good job!  Here's your reward; a Thursday night home conference final decider on 3 days rest!"

This fuckin league sometimes.

I'm never going to understand what anyone at this club saw in Ivan to justify that signing.  He fucking sucks.

Posted by Arsenal14 on 01 November 2018 - 03:09 PM

That would be awesome, November 8th is the final, I'd definitely make it out.

Any idea why the final is on a Thursday though? Seems silly when all the other playoff games have been Fri/Sat. Should have just have had the final on Saturday the 10th.

TV.  It's on ESPN2, and they're not going to bump Saturday night college football for a minor league soccer final.

The shadows at this stadium are awful for broadcasts

The red v. dark blue in these shadows is fucking brutal for the color blind.

Should always be light v. dark.  This shouldn't be hard.

Henry has been named the head coach of AS Monaco, where he started his professional career.  Huge congrats to Thierry!

#1333307 Cahill leaves for Asian $$$$$

Posted by Arsenal14 on 17 September 2018 - 03:18 PM

I remember when he came over and some Everton fan/blogger was on Seeing Red and talked about how Cahill would make sure Marquez shaped up. That's the level of esteem in which some held Tim Cahill.
Since, he's just chased cash. It's more than a little sad for everyone involved.

Except for his bank account.  Guy has 20 years to earn good money in his career, and he's taking advantage.

Shaming players for trying to earn money has to be one of the weirdest things that sports fans do.
