#1374071 Samuel Tetteh To New York Red Bulls

Posted by uptownbull on 29 October 2020 - 01:40 PM

In one of his first games he took a sweet first touch at full sprint that had me very hopeful he was a player. A more defined system under a permanent coach might help him show what he can do, but timing may be working against him there.




#1373850 MVP for 2020

Mr Bradley Carnell, for giving us a watchable team.




#1373830 Some people like listening to Shep

Posted by uptownbull on 26 October 2020 - 12:56 PM

Hearing them again when the season restarted was such a refreshing breath of familiar air. Ace play by play and weird/sincere color commentary from a guy who played on THE legendary local team*. Pretty much the ideal. 

 

*Pele's Cosmos, not the club in general.

Good, terrible redesign.


#1373562 Current Roster - Start, Bench, Move (cut, trade, sell, or demote) in 2021

Posted by uptownbull on 20 October 2020 - 01:12 PM

This arrangement is only barely tolerable if Metro is consistently competing strongly for - and regularly winning - hardware.




#1373147 Kaku will leave for qualifiers

None of us saw that one coming.




#1372706 Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

A coach that wins big AND doesn't pull a Marsch to ditch the team in the middle of our best ever season for a higher rung on the RB ladder would be nice. But I'm a greedy RBO malcontent ;)

good news - MLS Store has new face coverings in stock
 
Don't foget to order XXXL to cover your whole face so you don't have to watch this team play like a USL side.

Paper bag with an N95 taped to the front if we were able to go to games.

Thats true, but Nas is old friends with Lauryn Hill, so lets hope he took her "have to respect Jersey" line seriously.




#1371074 ARMAS GONE!

Posted by uptownbull on 05 September 2020 - 01:21 PM

Who knows whether plan B became plan A bc he thought going for 1-0 wins was actually a better way. Only Armas.

I'll stop piling onto my fellow monolingual Nuyorican primo, and hope he ends up in a situation where he can grow and succeed. Maybe he would've done better with better management above him pushing him on his decisions. Can't say anybody on the first team is currently set up to succeed.

Posted by uptownbull on 03 September 2020 - 05:37 PM

I blame that goal on all of us who 100% knew it coming, self included. The ongoing curse of mediocre management.


#1370286 Why doesn't RB GmbH go public?

Posted by uptownbull on 29 August 2020 - 08:27 AM

They'd lose a lot of operating autonomy and their business model would probably change. But... maybe short-term-profits-fixated shareholders would force them to sell Metro?

Isn't it because the virus takes up to 14 days to show symptoms or be detectible after infection?

Still mad about Etienne.
