Apparently Fabio and Diarra don't even have jersey numbers yet.   

Fabio is 9. Diarra is 44

This team doesnt believe in doing anything expediently

Any video stream, or just audio?

At least people at the game will be able to tell us the lineup and who scored.

Jokes on you, RBNY comms team is requiring fans attending to sign a NDA. Any fan leaking information on any medium is subject to expulsion and being banned from RBA. They have moles on NYRBDG, Reddit, and here on MF.

#1381438 Lineup for 2021

Posted by TK_RBNY on 09 April 2021 - 03:29 PM

Agree... I'm not optimistic with Royer and this formation.  Royer was at his best in the 4-2-3-1 and especially that 3-3-3-1 thing we played.  Harper I still have to see regularly to get a feel for.
I still see this happening:
Pendant Reyes Long Duncan

Still worried about that defense mostly because of Reyes and Pendant, not sure how Royer fits, the 6 spot probably isn't the best spot for Yearwood.

If Diarra is in there you can flip him and Yearwood. Outside of maybe Amaya? and putting Davis there, Diarra is best suited for that 6 role. That all depends on his fitness though

Also Gutman is a lock for LB, believe Pendant is injured although the team will never tell us. MLS roster page has him on the injured list. Even though their pages arent accurate it would explain why Pendant was absent in Florida

#1381369 International slot count

Posted by TK_RBNY on 08 April 2021 - 10:20 PM

The new MLS site changed the team roster page (and still has Jorgensen listed twice), but
1 Carmona
2 Coronel
3 Casseres
4 Diarra
5 Edwards
6 Egbo
7 Fabio
8 Jensen
(?) Jorgensen
9 Pendant
10 Reyes
(?) Kaku
11 Royer
12 Yearwood
When is roster compliance date?

Casseres has his GC, so thats not accurate. Would need to drop 1 more international assuming they can just do some funny business with Kaku until that situation is settled.

Id imagine theyd need to be compliant by next Saturday

I mean its a lose lose situation. You tell him in advance and then he posts a video everyone is upset and you have no explanation you do it now its short notice. Either way you are going to have backlash they went with the rip the band aid approach and my guess they dont really care that people 90% of whom if not more dont listen to any of his broadcasts are upset

Who cares if people that are upset listen to his broadcast. Its no way to treat people, especially a person who is passionate about the team and has been affiliated with the organization for over 20 years.

The guy was on vacation and 10 days out from the first match of the season. You couldnt have handled the situation any worse

Countdown till the protest at MLS HQ in midtown demanding them to force Red Bull to sell the team...
They don't care, and they never will care. This team is just an asset on a sports marketing spreadsheet.

I dont see how a business side decision has anything to do with Red Bull and MLS.

Yeah, they fucking suck and treated a gem of a man like a piece of trash. Lets not mix the two

I asked RBNY twice for the preseason roster... and then the question above.

Im shocked /s

Speedy Williams, Bolu Akinyode and Janos Loebe all played for Miami FC today. You know how I know that? Their team provides coverage.

This preseason coverage is a joke from a PR/social standpoint. No updates whatsoever, no preseason roster, no preseason lineups. Its like the team intentionally wants to lose fans. Nothing on the team website, very few social media posts. While I get the team is a joke, there was more coverage for preseason before social media and that's as sad as the forward situation has been the past couple years.

I dont know if they think being secretive is beneficial to them, or why they think that.

Everyone knows how a Red Bull team plays with some slight differences. We havent gotten a preseason roster either, although by the looks of things both Pendant and Jensen were left in NJ.

In previous years we got lineups, halftime changes and goal score updates, thats all Im really looking for from a preseason match with no streaming.

#1380593 This offseason is not a shitshow

Posted by TK_RBNY on 23 March 2021 - 03:43 PM

I thought that Oeste was in Serie B mostly and recently got demoted to C. 

Yes. I think signing a Serie C player is even a bridge too far for this team.

#1380257 Andrew Gutman

Posted by TK_RBNY on 09 March 2021 - 03:59 PM

this is also clearly a plan C or D move.

Having a plan C or D is a nice alternative. Kahl and Gloster (maybe) plan A and B

I read this as waiting for like Fabio's visa.... you reading something else?

As far as I can tell from IG Fabio is still in Brazil. Edwards might still be in England, hes not as active on Instagram, unsure about Diarra and Coronel but they were recently confirmed so figure they are a bit behind as well.

#1380114 Cameron Harper from Celtic

Posted by TK_RBNY on 05 March 2021 - 12:42 PM

My (half-joking) prediction: ala Long, Struber decides Harper is playing in wrong spot and switches him to LWB in a 5 man back.

Better plan,  just get Gloster to come aboard

#1379967 New Captain?

Posted by TK_RBNY on 02 March 2021 - 12:46 PM

Isn't the armband still a guaranteed ticket out next transfer window? 
I bet its Long, but maybe Davis does a turnaround - seems like Struber has clear patterns he wants deployed. Not crazy that some guys that stagnated under Armas have a lightbulb moment. 

With Davis its more that hes not a great fit for the role the team has pigeon holed him into the past 2 seasons. When he started getting minutes with the first team he was playing in a more attacking role either in that weird 3-3-3-1 or in central midfield.

He was moved back to pair with Adams after Felipe was traded and the partnership did well with Tyler flying all over the field wrecking everyones shit, made Seans job simple.

Last year again they only added more box to box guys so by default Sean was left playing as the deepest midfielder.

Carnell is the only guy from the old regime left so everyones going to get a fresh start with Struber.

Either way I cant picture Davis being successful playing as the 6 in the diamond with the intensity of play being ramped back up.
