#1344875 Denis Hamlett

Posted by sabremike on 22 April 2019 - 02:06 PM

Hamlett says that the rumor of TH going to us is false. 
Hamlett's quote didn't mention anything about RB Brasil/Bragantino, Salzburg or Leipzig. Quite possible that if TH is hired by RBG, it'll be for one of those teams or just some random "RBG Consultant/Ambassador" thing.

Is it also in the realm of possibility that this is a classic case of the left hand (RBNY management) not knowing what the right hand (Austrian ovetlords) is doing?

Someone pointed out that if TH14 comes here they are almost surely going to spend money because if they didn't assure him they will no way in hell he takes the job.

#1344758 The Fire Chris Armas Thread

Posted by sabremike on 20 April 2019 - 10:40 PM

What tools has Hamlett given Armas? Seriously?

Our MLS signings since Armas took the helm all played with NYRBII today (Epps, Jorgensen, Nealis and Koffi). Omir Fernandez is a rookie that would have signed with this club regardless of Sporting Director.

Based on the rumblings I have heard Armas has asked numerous times for players to be moved or to bring in certain players and Hamlett isn't getting it done. Meanwhile, Hamlett is in bed with Austria and in a safe spot.

That's fair, but the team playing in a style that would not be out of place in 1998 MLS is entirely on the coach.

Why did we go halfway around the world to sign a guy who sucks as bad as Ivan when they could've just signed anyone from any D1 college team and got the exact same quality of player?

UEFA FFP rules do not allow artificially low transfer fees between teams with the same ownership. Means there were no higher offers for Adams at the time, or other teams would have made noise about it.

Does that cover clubs who aren't governed by UEFA like us?

Kaku might be the worst player on the field. Lade has at least completed some passes.

Why have so few people noted that Kaku fell off a cliff at roughly the same time Jesse went to Leipzig and Armas took over?

Guys don't worry: our owners have diagnosed the real problem and are going to reduce the capacity of RBA to 10,000 so it doesn't look as bad when we draw 5k a match because nobody cares.

#1344088 Top level DPs

Posted by sabremike on 08 April 2019 - 10:08 PM

Angel came here after scoring 14 goals in 85 games over three years.

Henry came here after scoring 4 goals in a 32-appearance season.

Marquez came here after a season where he was a rotation option at best, and hadn't cracked 25 league appearances in 4 years.

Cahill came here after the worst goalscoring season of his career.

Our top-level DP history is borderline non-existent.

You are claiming Henry wasn't a top level DP? Are you freaking high?

The amusing thing about this is that nobody seems to care that the team is owned by slave holding mass murderers and that the league is partnering with those monsters who piss all over the concept of human rights. Maybe the HuffPost guy could bring that up?

snow - would have been fun to host tonight 
but then again snow means more weird bounces which would probably benefit the other team

If you asked me what is the worst possible thing that could happen for our home leg snow would be the very first answer I would give. Would completely neutralize our overwhelming skill advantage and give the Dominican team the best chance they could possibly get.

What the hell! Sam was going to be the only inductee into the MF Hall of Fame this year, but now he is not retired... Ugh.

How about MetroDog?????

Thinking his agent is doing this without the player's consent is pretty naive and seems like trying to find a way to absolve said player of blame for what's happening.

Fuck you.  How about some facts or links?

History lesson for the ignorant: at GS the yellowshirts targeted and went after a fan and had him arrested SPECIFICALLY because they were Hispanic. Jake stepped in and served as their lawyer, went to court, had the bullshit case and ban tossed out and refused to accept a single penny for his work.
