#1349392 Metro - Toronto Game Thread

Posted by sabremike on Yesterday, 08:31 PM

Just a reminder: we sold our best player (and if you don't think Tyler was our best player last year watch a random game from last year and watch one from this year) for a pittance and used it on a guy who isn't good enough for MLS.

Ticats with the greatest regular season win at the Donut Box ever vs Calgary.

Forge win on the road vs Pacific.

Metro takes out the Bronx Blood Money.


#1348888 Stadium updates

Update from my rep: "I actually havent heard anything internally about the tarps being removed in the north ward for this match. Ill let you know if I get wind of anything different."

Tarps still on, I guess. Hopefully it doesn't result in more issues among fans.

I'm sure NYCFC fans will be giddy about the closed-off sections after the game.

Prevents them from ripping out and stealing seats.

#1348572 2020 Season Ticket Renewals

Posted by sabremike on 05 July 2019 - 04:29 PM

Got my renewal info in the mail today, AWESOME timing by the organization as usual. Leaning towards not renewing because the ticketing is a giant pain in the ass, I can easily get a face ticket for any game and they skunked everyone on the USOC tickets (and I didn't read the stuff yet but if they highlight free USOC tickets as a perk I'm done because they are completely lying as unless it's a semi or a final a USOC is never going to be held at RBA ever again). Not to mention the Austrian overlords don't give a shit about winning and refuse to spend money to bring in non garbage players.

Unfortunately it's not us.

Thank god I didnt go to this game

Thered be a body count

If you had been there and gone up into the broadcast booth and stabbed that shitstain Charlie Davies in the eye with a fork I would've collected funds to build a statue in your honor outside RBA.

Thank God we spent all that money on some kid from Denmark who totally blows instead of get a credible MLS quality striker, like say a guy along the lines of a Teal Bunbury.

Hey man, I trust Red Bull and they say that he's worth 2/3 of Tyler Adams.

I'd trust having Dany Heatley as my Uber driver before I trusted the Red Bull people.

#1347441 The Fire Chris Armas Thread

Posted by sabremike on 08 June 2019 - 09:09 PM

Chris Armas didnt lose that game.  The USL quality of our depth in defense did.

I mean it wasn't like we blew our entire transfer budget this offseason on some kid who absolutely sucks and is barely good enough to play in USL or something.

#1346744 Jorgensen

Posted by sabremike on 27 May 2019 - 01:38 PM

The 2mil was an investment - get 6-8 mil in selling him when he's 21ish - on track for that, he's learning the system in the USL still, scoring but looks sloppy

If you think he will ever bring in 6-8 mil on a transfer you are crazy, and if you think even if by some miracle that did happen we would see anything from it instead of right hand us handing it to left hand Leipzig or Salzburg you are Planet Saturn crazy.

#1346657 Jorgensen

Posted by sabremike on 25 May 2019 - 01:09 PM

He is only 18, give him time.

Bullshit, if you are signed as a freaking DP and you are a Tage Thompson of soccer level of suck thats unacceptable and everyone behind this decision need to be fired straight into the sun. Remember: he was signed with the idea of Leipzig or Salzburg reaping the rewards because we don't mean shit to the Austrian slumlords.

When will this team finally learn that doing cute bullshit on set pieces is unbelievably stupid?

#1346200 Random Player Name Thread 2019

Posted by sabremike on 18 May 2019 - 01:33 PM

i don't see us making any big splashes this year or next. expect more jorgensen level signings while the PATH weekend situation gets resolved.
If we can barely fill 18k seats with Zlatan's first appearance in town, then it seems like a waste to spend millions on a marquee player if no one will show up to watch.

I said elsewhere that I was terrified that they would use the PATH situation as an excuse to explain away all the empty seats instead of addressing the real reasons for it that have been repeatedly discussed here. Do they have enough foresight to see that if they phone it in for the next few years when the day comes that PATH service is back to normal the fanbase will have been completely disintegrated?
