Great human

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

I think Fabio should stay.

Second goal was so satisfying, Stu Holden called it on the broadcast that he just dunked over the Miami defenders and did he ever. Knocked him aside like he wasn't even there. Exactly what you want to see from your big man in the box.

His heading was encouraging. His shooting is still generally horrible.

The guy is 6"4"... perhaps winning headers was his calling all along.

Fabio has been playing so much better lately that soon I may actually believe that it's not butter.

Anyone want to hazard a guess to his transfer fee? Gotta imagine for a young-ish Brazilian striker it would at least put him in TAM, possibly DP range right?

More than Kaku?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

You think so? The buy option was set during the initial loan and Oeste is currently in last place in Serie C and in danger of relegation to the 4th division.

TAM at most, although in an effort to be cheap if he even approaches DP range they might just designate him. They did it with Yearwood when he initially signed.

If the transfer fee is anywhere in the seven figure range it'd put him there. I have no idea what a true valuation is of a player from the Brazilian Serie C is but in my head the words "striker", "young-ish", and "Brazilian" usually account for a pretty decent fee.

i'd be surprised if it was less than $400k. Last year they sold someone for just under 900k that was 20 years old so I dont think Fabio will cost $1mm based on that.  But anything between 400-800k would not surprise me.

Transfermarkt has him at $1.1M. Many times their estimates become self-fulfilling prophecies. In any case, I don't know what the estimate was when NYRB acquired him on loan. But can't his performances have increased his value.

the buy option was likely for a pre negotiated price

Any word when he'll be back from injury? I'd rather see him come on for 20 mins than Barlow

With the new formation likely relegating Fabio to a supersub role, does that change the club's decision on whether to exercise the purchase option?
