Great stuff, Im excited for next season.

Expect Louro, Barlow, Stroud, and Moreno to be leaders next season.

CM will be interesting to watch hope to see CCJ and or Koffi. Bet Tinari and Yanes to play a lot for RB2 if they come back to the first team which I expect.

Really hope mines comes out firing maybe the coaching staff could move him to 10 and try and develop those skills or just keep him at RW.

Should see new fullbacks and backup GK and my knowledge of the system ends here so no idea if we have guys at lower levels ready to step up or looking at drafting a lot.

Im really curious as to what were gonna do with Abang, there is a player there its just so rough and with Barlow and white I dont see where he fits in.

How's Moreno's prospects looking going into next year? Seemed like he had some hype around him at the start of 2018 but it died down, was he dealing with injuries?

He came in and out of the team like everyone depending on what the first team needed. Never really had a real run at ST but seemed to make that LW position his own by the end of the year. Theres still a chance he could turn into Muyl with a little better ball control, dribbling and finishing.

 

Id say mostly his prospects of first team impact have to do with if we sign another Kaku/Royer level guy for the RW. If we do that pushes DE7, Muyl, Valot and Ivan into competing as back ups in that front 3 behind the ST and probably not many opportunities for Mines / Moreno.

Prior to the injury, he was the starter and for a few weeks, leading the league in goals. Stroud was used out left after the injury and was solid enough to prevent Moreno from a ton of time when he returned at the end of the year.

Still, Moreno looked good at the very end of the season and can easily see him battling for a first team spot, especially given the current roster.

Start the season at home on March 9th vs. Swope Park Rangers.

Swope Park has Ethan Vancore-Decker, who was a great academy player for Red Bull when he was younger but faded a bit. Justin Bilyeu is also on SPR.

Schedule Released. Perfectly balanced. 1 home, 1 away against each team in our division.

Downfall: 10 of the 18 teams in each division make the playoffs.

10 team in the playoffs means really there should be no way we don't make it. Guess its cool to have more teams in but will be almost impossible for a 7/8/9/10 seed to win it all.

 

Having to win a play in, then QF then SF then the final all on the road would be impressive, we've come close but I would love to see an improvement on road form, we we sooo trash last year.

Is RBII committed to finishing last in attendance again?

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

Should be better this year but wouldn't expect drastic changes. 10 of their 17 home games will be weekend games, which should help.

$84 for season tickets isnt bad at all (plus my sons membership is free with the youth deal they had going).

Parking deck is 15 yards from the field but $7 a match.

Ive watched probably 80% of all time RB2 games most on replay since its not too tough to avoid a score and still never been to one...

 

I live in Northern BK and when they had games at RBA a few times I was gonna go but figured it's easier to watch when I had time but now that its at MSU its like impossible for me to get there.

 

If the facility is good im happy for the team to play there but I wish we could have made it work with one of the colleges in NY proper like Columbia or maybe something in BK.

 

I just can't see myself being able to go unless its like a 2 hours endeavor.

I'll watch the game replays on YouTube the majority of the time but I honestly have no interest in spending 17 nights driving to MSU to be there with 700 other people in a boring atmosphere. I do check out the playoff games though, the ones at RBA in 2016 were fun.

If you combine that with the first team home games then you're spending basically every weekend going to at least 1 game and I'd much rather be doing other things than going to RB2 games, even if that means hanging around the house for a lazy Saturday.

yup, same for me. MSU seems a bit too much, considering. Miss those RBA games for RB2.

5 or 6 dates may changes based on the MLS Schedule.

Also, as a reminder, I have been updating the initial post in this thread to reflect signings of our former players.
