#1379303 Kieran Gibbs rumour?

Posted by odsum25 on 12 February 2021 - 12:25 PM

This screams "agent trying to extract more money from Miami" to me.

#1379129 Will (when) we sign new players?

Posted by odsum25 on 09 February 2021 - 06:01 PM

Edwards - Duncan is better, and domestic
Reyes - Parker was better and domestic
Harper - Kaku is a better player, I know different position but still one attacking player for another and we got worse.
Fabio - Upgrade over White/Barlow but no chance MLS All Star quality 9.
Coronel - I dont know enough but was GK that big of an issue?
Overall we have a worse starting XI right now that we did when we lost the playoffs.
I dont care if weve shed salary if we dont go out and use it.

Kyle Duncan, who made a whopping 2 appearances for the Valenciennes reserves before coming back to NY had even less of a resumée than Harper does.

Duncan's level of experience now is still arguably lesser than Edwards'.

I'm not saying that those two are world beater signings, but let's not get carried away with the doom and gloom.

Cinci signing Papu Gomez for 10 million a year kind of seems like them taking the worst possible lesson from the Galaxy's disastrous roster building of the past few years. A great player, but what's he going to do as a part of that roster?

#1377597 Andres Reyes In

I'm guessing that the fee was much less than Miami's $2.5 milliom option.

#1376675 Kaku wants out

to get technical Clark had a trial before he signed with rb2

Pretty sure that RB was on trial in that case, not Clark.

Honorary Metro status for Gignac, please.

#1375163 Offseason will be a bloodbath

Posted by odsum25 on 21 November 2020 - 07:52 PM

I don't think that Rza will be back, but he's actually a perfect fit for the 4-3-1-2, playing that mezzala type role.

#1358918 Getting players green cards

Posted by odsum25 on 10 January 2020 - 08:50 AM

The team could certainly do much better on this front, but also keep in mind that immigration processing and interview times tend to be much more drawn out in major metropolitan areas. It's a function of population and the sheer amount of people requesting status.

(And, frankly, there are much larger entities than RB vying for the services of top notch legal counsel).

Moops, not moors.

You realize that the roster freeze already happened, right? No one can be added until next year.

Buckmaster played in the PDL at some point, right? Must have been him... https://twitter.com/...3733587968?s=19

#1350421 Epps is Walkin' On Memphis

Posted by odsum25 on 02 August 2019 - 01:50 PM

Now this is the transfer news we've been waiting for! Epps was in a tough spot. He doesn't seem like he can beat out the other first team wingers, but he's a stud at the USL level. This opens up a first team roster spot and allows RBII to play some guys with a higher ceiling, so it seems like a good move for everyone involved.

That was a hell of a ball by Kaku.

Tarek has been great this year, but that was an awful case of ballwatching.
