#1343153 Kaku benched, his feelings hurt

Posted by SoapyDish on 19 March 2019 - 12:07 PM

Yea..I don't see how anyone "sides" with Kaku. From what we hear - a lot of guys bleed for this club, especially the academy guys. I'm not sure who would be "siding" with him openly demanding a transfer and shitting on the club...

Yeah I don't see many of our players "siding" with Kaku. BWP and Robles owe the club the best of their careers, academy guys are part of huge success stories, and guys like Royer and Parker seem too professional for petty shit like this.

 

The only player I could see "siding" with Kaku would be Taxi, mostly cause I think he wants to chase big bucks in Europe which I can't blame him for.




#1342447 Possible naming rights to RBA

Posted by SoapyDish on 11 March 2019 - 04:26 PM

I thought I read reports a couple months ago that RBNY, as well as many other MLS clubs were operating at a decent profit?

 

 

Anyway, I'm gonna miss that emphatic "RED, BULL, ARENA!"

My guess;

 

BWP

Royer - Kaku - Muyl

Davis - RZA

Taxi - Long - Parker - Lade 

Robles

 

Louro, Duncan, Tarek, CCJ, Valot, Ivan, Omir

I think Duncan starts, especially since he didn't play a full 90 tonight.

This team is below USL quality.

Kinda harsh, it's only our second game of the season

The man has scored 124 goals and still not good enough for some people. Jesus H. Christ.

You mean Thierry Henry has given BWP 124 goals.




#1339190 Random Player Name Thread 2019

Posted by SoapyDish on 17 January 2019 - 01:04 PM

Rumblings of Pity Martinez actually not moving to Atlanta, and according to a screenshot of his Instagram he is currently in NYC.

 

Also apparently, Pity has not actually ever named ATL, just things like "the US club".

 

Welcome DP3 (4?)!




#1338668 Offers for Murillo

Posted by SoapyDish on 02 January 2019 - 08:16 PM

Sell asap if he wants to go and the price is right. I always thought he was kind of weak on the the defensive end but had huge upsides in possession and going forward. He's a winger's dream wing partner going forward. And he's only 22? I thought he was at least the wrong side of 25. 

 

It'll be a huge loss but right back isn't the scariest place to lose a player in, could be replaceable by a more seasoned MLS guy.

I take Muyl and Etienne over 90% of MLS journeymen and Ivan's out there that we could/would otherwise have. With the added factor of their age and durability they are (imo) great squad players. Even if we got some magic unknown South-American DP3 they can't play every July game in Houston.

BWP is incredible, and probably our GOAT, but he will turn 34 this coming March. Henry played until age 37, but only scored 10 goals in each of his final two seasons. http://www.metrofana...ayer.jsp?ID=232

But Henry changed his game, for better or worse, and became more of a creative midfielder because the teams we put around him sucked so bad. 

 

If we had the team we do know with Henry he'd have a 30 goal season, assuming his Achilles didn't explode from shooting too much.

 

As for BWP mother time is undefeated so it's now or never (until the next generational forward who scores 20 goals a season and no other team in the world would consider buying).




#1338053 Parker signs new deal

Posted by SoapyDish on 11 December 2018 - 11:13 PM

Retaining the best defense in MLS really helps with going right back at it with trying to "win now". Awesome news




#1337423 Adams to Leipzig official

Posted by SoapyDish on 02 December 2018 - 02:01 PM

Keyword in this press release is "transfer" and not "sell". I doubt we are getting any significant kickback for this. I could obviously be wrong though, maybe Austria will be willing to sign some bigger checks this January.

I can see it now, next leg we score an early goal, we score again before the half, all looking good.

 

Then, Justin Meram with a goal in the 68th makes it 2-1, and the Crew win on away goals, only after an 86th minute sitter from Ivan, who is playing for some reason.

We should invest in Titanium achilles for Thierry Henry and make him DP3.
