Worst would be someone taking the "L" train from Brooklyn to 6th ave, then switching to Path, for a weekend game. Have a good trip :(.

The less RB players the better. The US team is not going to change at the top, and it still will not win anything besides the Gold Cup on home soil. Going to these camps will lead to a line in your resume, a helpful pay check for a low-salaried player, and a possible injury.

#1337760 Who to root for in MLS Cup 2018?

Posted by Rybka on 08 December 2018 - 12:20 PM

I am surprised there is a debate on this. Yes, Gio is a former Metro ATG, but the key point here is former. Now he is with another organization, and there is a clear benefit in Atlanta winning for the current Metro: CCL qualification. Only 4 US teams qualify over the course of two years. This is a big honor and opportunity: last year we made semis. No MLS team has ever won this tournament, and we get a chance to be in it with Atlanta win. This is a no brainer here - Atlanta win is our ticket.

Use of LOGIC is expressly FORBIDDEN!!!

This team is a juggernaut. We need to  
fill a few holes, but we do not need a makeover. RB2 keeps supplying talent, but we to have to look to SA for offensive punch. Kaku was a good first step.

I get wanting a player from that first RBNY2 championship to take PKs; that squad was lights out when it came to shootouts.  The PK wasn't great and the miss, along with the other ball he rocketed into the South Ward, mentally took Etienne out of the rest of the first half.  Credit to Armas for sticking with him and getting his confidence back up.  That said, I'm glad Royer looked healthy and should be good to go in the playoffs.


Also, Sean Davis had a great game.

After the pk miss, DE7 went into a state of depression. He did not hustle. He did not make runs. He laid back on defense. Any pass to him was simply returned to sender. For the last 15 minutes of the first half, Armas had Brian White, ALONE, warming up. If that wasn't a message to DE7, then what? I suppose Armas gave him a talking to at the break. Fortunately, DE7 came out like it was a new game and he came to play. He started hustling and contesting things like the rest of the team. The goal was incidental to his new attitude.

If I wear my home Metrostar jersey in 101, will security confuse me with an Atl supporter and kick me out? We shall find out.

His problem is probably due to all the disruption and construction on the LIRR from Hicksville.

#1330232 Should BWP get statue on entrance to RBA?

Statue should be of the heel click goal celebration. But how could you do that if he is in the air?

If you just have the 32 top rated (or soon 48), without geographical dispersion and the accompanying weaker teams, the WC finals will not carry the same national pride and prestige. The global footprint of the WC finals is what makes it so prestigious and inspires nationalistic pride.

Tim Ream's dull clinical style and his over-passing was at fault for Fulham's promotion.

Missed in all the injuries is that Sean Davis was on the receiving end of two vicious tackles. The first was an almost red (var review made it a  yellow) and the second was red. Hope he is all right.

#1320328 Felipe for Tim Parker (NOT a rumor)

Posted by Rybka on 06 March 2018 - 10:15 AM

We have to keep taking BWP out of games by the 80 minute mark or less for several reasons: One, to preserve him, two to protect him from injury, and three to give the understudies a chance to develop.
