If the Ironbound were not coming in to watch Juninho Pernambucano, who actually played for the Brasil National Team, they are not coming in for Fabio!!

No.  Fabio will finally put us over the top with the Brazilians.  We need to double-down on the ethnic pandering.  We will soon reach a tipping point when the Brazilians flood RBA in droves.  Then we will sign a washed up former Mexican national team and the Mexicans will embrace us!

If Digão didn't draw Brazilian fans to RBA then no one will.

Is Rafa still available?

My comment regarding Fabio was really a throw away comment, but my code compels me to defend it!!

 

I was not trying to say acquire players based on nationality, I was more saying that as you cant market a "brand" like red bull. No one cares about soda.  The marketing dept. should be marketing players and have those players go to where people congregate (post-covid, obviously). I think the only route to generating fan interest is winning and having "likable" players who fans route for.  

 

Fabio could have been from anywhere, and I think he would be a good pick up. He happens to be Brazilian and happens to be set to play in Ironbound/Harrison, which has one of the largest Brazilian populations in the US. Him being Brazilian is not a reason to pick him up, but him being Brazilian is a reason he should be involved in marketing to the nearby Brazilian community (assuming he is good).

If more Henrys are a pipe dream until we're Metro with an LAFC style ownership group, developing a reputation as a team that always has an exciting young Brazilian or three wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. Positive evolution to the teutonic press n' go and moneyball identity.

RED. BULL. OUT.

The Bragantino connection also adds credence to this approach.   We wouldn't be going out to get Brazilians for pandering purposes, it would credibly be integral to the approach and identity.

The only problem with this is it makes too much sense. We need to think outside the box, which is why we're not doing it.

At least Fabio seems like he'll be easy to root for.

If he scores enough to get sold to a better team, that's a whole hell of a lot better than watching Barlow for the next two years.


If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.
