#1376561 Misconception that the team is young

Posted by sabremike on 20 December 2020 - 06:08 PM

HOT TAKE!
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.


They had multiple DP slots unfilled for two+ years and had among the lowest payrolls for years now.

Love to sign two DP attackers who get outscored by Danny Cepero.

#1375536 Signing bums from lower level leagues

In the presser that's what it sounds like.. Sounds like they want to go get 11 23 year olds that play in Finland , Norway, Belgium, Romania and second divisions in France and Spain and 3rd division in England

One very disturbing thing about that mindset everyone seems to be missing: it means that the new regime considers the level of play in MLS to be complete garbage and all they need to do is bring in guys from the dregs of European soccer and they'll walk in and wipe the floor with everyone. If you don't spend for actual legit players in today's MLS you will never be anything but a bottom feeder who only exists to make up the numbers.

#2TFC 0-1 #7Nashville.
#1PU 0-2 #8NE.
RB blew two 2-goal leads last year @ PU.
Now Columbus are top remaining seed.

Somewhere the head of a beloved supporters group sees that first result and has a hearty laugh.

Thanks
I need new tires more than a new scarf but hey why not!


Silly Goose you missed the fine print: It's not just a regular scarf, its a skire: A scarf that doubles as a tire!

Shout out to the de facto Jim Crow/Apartheid treatment that exists in the US healthcare system. If you're of colonizer blood, you'll probably going to be alright, just a little (or a lot) lighter in the pocket. But if you happen to be a person of color (especially Black)... no guarantees. 'murica!


Sir, this is a Wendy's.

This is the finish that a game this crap completely deserves.

These are the type of games that are why none of the eurosnobs would be caught dead at an MLS match: Just absolute pitiful quality.

Gotta keep Kaku fresh for his next appearance in a month or so from now.

you can't recruit international caliber players if they know you will block them from playing in qualifiers.  It sucks but is very short sighted by MLS. 


But isn't the issue that under normal circumstances there would be no issue but the mandatory quarantine (and I could go on a rant about how useless they are but that's beside the point) would force them to miss two more weeks?
