#1358362 New 2020 RBNY Jersey - Black

Posted by SoapyDish on 29 December 2019 - 11:52 AM

Our black Jersey's with yellow shorts in 2013(?) were awesome, wish we could have had those back. Maybe throw in some red pinstripes and you have a classic.

#1357291 Kemar Lawrence wants out

Posted by SoapyDish on 25 November 2019 - 08:25 PM

Interesting how he wants a "trade" and not to be sold to Europe. Sounds like he just wants more $$$ which I do not blame him for what so ever. Thing is though if he does get traded he'll have the same contract, and have to wait just as long to get more cash as he would here. So, basically, if I'm reading this correctly, he just wants the fuck outta RBNY which I don't really blame him for at this point. Especially if he lands in LA or something.

#1356768 Thierry Henry to Montreal

I don't think there are too many teams in the MLS where Titi wouldn't be able to start even after 5 years out of the game.

If his achilles weren't about ready to explode by the end of his playing career he coulda have easily been a Zlatan type dude and played up until he was pushin 40. Just with progressively less running

Danny Williams would help at CM.


Not subject to allocation, either.

Danny Williams would be the exact signing that would help us be back on track to being a contender again. Not ever gonna happen, since he doesn't play in the Azerbaijani 7th division but it'd sure be nice. 

#1351185 Etienne tweets about snakes... then gets loaned out

Posted by SoapyDish on 08 August 2019 - 12:45 PM

So with an option to buy I guess anything short of Etienne shitting the bed at Cinci basically guarantees they sign him right? They need MLS ready players and Etienne is exactly that. I just wish we could have gotten Ndam back since he's doing nothing but wasting away and depleting his potential in the ruck of Cinci.

#1350618 EPL Interest in Aaron Long

Posted by SoapyDish on 03 August 2019 - 07:20 PM

Here's a clip of Long **appearing** to tell Gonzalez and Jozy that RB want 15 million. It's just a lip reading so you can't put much stock into it but if its true we are keeping Long 100%.

Luis and Armas said it best- we got complacent. Not enough fight.

I do wonder how a team gets complacent when they've been consistently sucking dick for an entire season?

#1347541 Florin Tănase

Posted by SoapyDish on 10 June 2019 - 01:03 PM

Romanian attacking midfielder Florin Tănase is in advanced discussions to sign with the New York Red Bulls. He currently plays for Steaua București. His club will not sell him for less than $5.7 million. He has been offered a salary of $1.1 million. (Fanatik) #RBNYMLS_19_RBNY.png







very big splash

24 years old, plays in Romania's top league. Gotta assume this is a player they'd expect to play at a high level right now. Also gonna assume that this is the type of signing where if it works out he'd be shipped off to Salzburg in a couple years.


Highlight tape I found: https://www.youtube....h?v=ZhrOrVRnRKc


Seems like his goal benefit from the goalies and defense being absolutely terrible. Should fit in well in MLS.

#1345470 Metro - LA Game Thread

Posted by SoapyDish on 04 May 2019 - 05:19 PM

Late to the thread, was at the game but I gotta say White was fantastic in the second half. Not sure he'll ever be a 15 goal a season guy but he plays a similar role to Giroud for France in the last World Cup and he did great today.


Also Etienne was great, should of had a second but they way he basically walked through the LA defense was amazing. He definitely needs to be getting more minutes going forward. Especially if the choice is between him and Jorgensen.

#1344602 Thierry Henry linked to RB coaching role

Posted by SoapyDish on 18 April 2019 - 04:09 PM

If anything it would bring some excitement to the sidelines, and on the field. Just don't see us going anywhere different from where we've been, at best with Armas. But is rb willing to pay Henry? He'd probably be asking for alot, reportedly wanted $200k a month from Bordeaux, plus relocation and travel costs for him and his agent.

Do it, we need a spark of some kind, and "Guys! Guys!" isn't doing it.

Henry reportedly got like 20 million euros from his 3(?) months with Monaco, the man isn't hurting. Plus he loves NYC so I'd imagine he wouldn't mind taking a "pay cut" to coach here.


And also I agree, "Wow we sucked that game, we aren't playing at our best, we'll do it next time!!" isn't doing it.

#1344523 Thierry Henry linked to RB coaching role

Posted by SoapyDish on 17 April 2019 - 10:33 AM

He's either gonna be an assistant with Leipzig or he's gonna become head coach here. Jesse is the new Salzburg coach so that's not an option. 


And I doubt he wants to be an assistant again when spending a lot of time as assistant with Belgium. Him coming here as HC makes too much sense. Armas isn't proving to be a great coach, Henry knows the organization and is a legend here, MLS is a pressure-free environment (until the playoffs I guess), he can't get us relegated like Monaco.


I will feel bad for Armas but I'm down for coach Henry tbh. It's not like Red Bull have anything to lose, what are we gonna do, not win an MLS cup?

Add another game to the list of about 3,000 metro games where if you told me the result before I watched the game I would be happy, but because I did watch it I am not.

I had to subscribe sadly. Works good so far and I'm getting the MSG feed at least. Sucks that Reddit soccer went down.

A discord sever took it's place and works great, but there's no stream for this game, of course.
