#1381254 Ernesto Motta fired

Posted by uptownbull on 07 April 2021 - 01:58 PM

Countdown till the protest at MLS HQ in midtown demanding them to force Red Bull to sell the team...

 

They don't care, and they never will care. This team is just an asset on a sports marketing spreadsheet.




#1381162 NYCFC is owned by slavers

Posted by uptownbull on 06 April 2021 - 03:45 PM

Might've just bruised my bum falling out of my chair laughing.

 

Their transplant fans really thought a club backed by Abu Dhabi blood money would mean a roster of big name superstars, championships, and a sick NYC stadium overnight. Can't really blame kids from midwestern suburbs for not understanding the reality of NYC real estate though lolololol.

 

But, eff Red Bull for not pulling out all the stops to ensure we won a MLS Cup and CCL in their early years to make a statement about who's boss in the Metro.




#1380907 Lineup for 2021

Posted by uptownbull on 01 April 2021 - 04:29 PM

-------Fabio--Diablo-----      White, Barlow, Harper

-Royer--------------Clark-     Harper, Valot, Omir, Carmona, Estrela

----Yearwood-CCJ-------     Valot, Davis, Diarra

Gutman----------Duncan     Edwards, Pendant, Egbo, Tolkin

--------Reyes-Long-------     Nealis, Tarek, Egbo

-----------GK1?-------------    GK2?  GK3?

 

 

Not bad if the signings (including the coach) aren't total busts. Damn shame they couldn't get Haks or some other experienced playmaker to really tie the room together. What's Ozil up to?




#1380865 This offseason is not a shitshow

Posted by uptownbull on 31 March 2021 - 11:38 AM

Im disappointed in the offseason but have a feeling that year 2 of the Struber project will be pretty awesome after him and Thelwell get the lay of the land.

 

Then he'll ditch us midway through and we'll finally get our reign of Sir Woly Ferguson.




#1380864 Kaku under Marsch vs under Armas

Posted by uptownbull on 31 March 2021 - 11:36 AM

In fairness, Armas justified dialing down the press and emphasizing possession by saying the team was starting to look burned out when he took over.

 

Maybe Marsch knew he was bouncing early and cared less about fatigue, in order to get results to secure his promotion? Yay RB ownership and these kinds of questions about what gets prioritized.




#1380455 Haksabanovic linked to Red Bull, apparently to us

Posted by uptownbull on 16 March 2021 - 01:04 PM

Are crypto shenanigans how Metro becomes the first fan-owned club in MLS?




#1380008 Lineup for 2021

Posted by uptownbull on 02 March 2021 - 05:42 PM

Wouldn't shock if Long left in the summer too. It'll suck for Metro but for his sake I hope it happens.




#1379553 Fabio

Posted by uptownbull on 18 February 2021 - 10:12 AM

If more Henrys are a pipe dream until we're Metro with an LAFC style ownership group, developing a reputation as a team that always has an exciting young Brazilian or three wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. Positive evolution to the teutonic press n' go and moneyball identity.


#1379531 Stoke right back Tom Edwards

Posted by uptownbull on 17 February 2021 - 07:19 PM

I'd like to see Pendant get a preseason and a few starts with a real coach before passing final judgement. *ducks tomatoes*

 

(EDIT: this feels a little like "I was saying Booo-urns")




#1379417 New jersey for 2021

Posted by uptownbull on 15 February 2021 - 12:46 PM

Plain fact is teams change their jersey designs way too much, and it forces teams, leagues, designers to churn out some absolute eyesores.

Don't know if the NFL changed it to cash in on ugly gimmick kit sales, but their old rule that teams had to keep a uniform for 5 years was a good thing all around.

Gimme a Yankees situation where they nail an iconic design, and aren't dumb enough to change away from it just to sell more merch.


#1379399 Jesse Marsch Tactics Presentation

Company man strictly following tactical and spending protocols.

*gestures Puerto Ricanly* you know what I mean!




#1379366 Random Player Name Thread 2021

Orlando signs Pato. Another one that would've made sense for us. Imagine Nani and Pato on this team! Would Newark/Harrison hear us now?

Fuck Red Bull and their "sign toddlers who havent won anything...yet?" approach. Give us owners that want to win it all and absolutely demolish our rivals every year.




#1379060 New jersey for 2021

Posted by uptownbull on 08 February 2021 - 07:15 PM

Zzzzzz, meanwhile they would've had a home run using the LAG striped template


#1378756 Will (when) we sign new players?

Posted by uptownbull on 03 February 2021 - 10:50 PM

I read that as his own frustration with the team not being more ambitious on the transfer market.
