#1351912 Metro - Revs Game Thread

Posted by MTF on 18 August 2019 - 09:15 AM

I would say Armas and Red Bull are committed to Buckmaster as the right back for the near future. Since Murillo has been unable to lock down the starting spot due to attitude, mental lapses, etc, Armas has decided the future is now. I can see that viewpoint if youre already eliminated from playoff contention, but this is a team that should literally be leading the East if not for badly dropped points. Ride Murillo for the remainder of the year and see how far you can go. Drop him in December and plan on going with Buckmaster in 2020.

A draw isnt so bad I guess. The Revs have been hot.

No, at home at this stage of the season and our place in the standings, this is a very bad draw.

I think you have to start Murillo over Buckmaster. Hes no more of a defensive liability than Buck, but brings much more in the attack.

I bet he wanted out.  Bet he leverages his time here into a move into some euro 2nd division.  Didnt Bover end up in championship or league one after never really playing here?

No, Bover moved to the Cosmos for two seasons, then back to England for a 5th division side.

To me, Royer is Joel Lindpere 2.0. Workhorse, skillful, team player, bleeds red.

Weird Casseres stats:

He's up to 3 goals and 3 assists in 10 games (all starts) this season.  That's pretty good!

However, the team has a record of 2W-4D-4L when he starts.  That's pretty terrible!

I think both sets of stats will normalize with a larger population of starts for CCJ: scoring will get a little colder, but team record will get better. My question is this: is CCJ now a starter from here on out? I think he should be!

What is the big fucking deal about the change from a corner to a throw-in? It happens ALL THE TIME!

Nothing. This is on NYCFC. They switched off. After Callens quit complaining he is nonchalantly walking back to goal. They were clearly expecting the Red Bulls to set-up for a corner. You cant switch off. An opponent could have just as easily taken a quick, short corner rather than our quick throw in.

This should be Bradleys last major tournament (should being the operative word). Trot him out in a friendly for a farewell tribute, and thank him for his service.

#1347491 Murillo to be sold, Olosunde to return?

Posted by MTF on 09 June 2019 - 12:46 PM

I dont get this. If he came to MLS, developed his game a little bit more, he could be playing in the epl or Bundesliga

If he leaves Europe now to return to MLS it's not likely he'll get a return call to Europe, at least not at an EPL, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 level. He's better off playing in a lower level European league, earning regular playing time, honing his game and getting noticed by a larger team with a need to fill.

#1346062 What is the front office doing?

Posted by MTF on 13 May 2019 - 09:02 PM

If the soda people don't even care about developing players anymore than the idea that we are nothing more to them than a walking billboard is something that can no longer be seriously argued against.

I dont think its that they dont care about developing talent, but that their Academy now has real strong competition in NYCFC.

#1345838 What is the front office doing?

RB staff jumping ship for imminent sale?

Imminent sale? Doubtful.  I'm interested to see if RBG will feel forced to loosen their purse strings if the league makes substantial changes during the next CBA, particularly regarding salary spending / cap.  Heaven help the organization if NYCFC wins a Cup before the Red Bulls.  It would destroy us in the NY metro market.

#1344658 Thierry Henry linked to RB coaching role

Posted by MTF on 20 April 2019 - 10:01 AM

Should be Woly next, with Sekgaya then becoming the manager of RBII.  I think Henry would be a great guy for the Academy...he's worked with Arsenal's youth.
