Were folks singing that tune last year when we finished with the best record in league history?


Did we have the 2nd lowest payroll in the league?

Also how can you expect you have depth when you don't spend. I remember people where screaming for some depth on the back line, then oopps kemar goes down...

Actually I keep forgetting that we DID spend money this year.  A team coming off a shield, in WIN NOW mode, spends most of their transfer money on a $2M striker prospect who cant even get minutes when BWP AND BRIAN WHITE get injured. Talk about a horrible use of money.....


Up this!

...who cant even get minutes when BWP AND BRIAN WHITE get injured AND we move to a two-forward formation.   We actually have that $2M kid as FIFTH  (Stroud might argue 6th) on the depth chart... 6 months after signing him.

The loss at home to Colorado is when he should have been fired.


He should have been fired after the cincy game. I hadnt seen Red Bull play that poorly in YEARS.

But the way we were playing was covered up by some good/lucky results. I posted at the time that getting those points was my biggest fear cause it would be a false indicator to Austria that he had things under control.

And here we are.

Austria? Which is the RB high command based?
In any event, RBNY is more like Fort Zinderneuf.

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

Is there any organizing for red bull out these last games? I'm down to help make a little pamphlet to spread the sentiment / vision of what this club could be with invested, proud local ownership. An NYNJ Common Sense, if you will.

96metro.com is available...

RED. BULL. OUT.
