#1364036 Some people want to debate politics and healthcare

Posted by Metrohoboken on 20 March 2020 - 04:55 PM

Im positive for COVID-19. I found out my results on Tuesday. Let me tell you: it sucks.

I have been sick for six days, but luckily have been spared the worst symptoms. My pulmonologist started me on Kaletra and Plaquenil immediately (in fact, he starred me on the Kaletra before I even had my positive test results, because I am in an at-risk category). I have no doubt that this timely intervention was key to minimizing my symptoms. I had developed difficultly breathing and a fever, which the drugs seem to have sorted out. Not everyone has access to such exceptional care, sadly. So, others will not be so lucky.

However, its been no walk in the park. Ive had diarrhea since Sunday, am constantly achy and can barely keep my eyes open. No amount of sleep does any good. So, please, do what you can to: a) avoid getting it yourself; and b) avoid passing it on to others who might be more at risk than you are.

sorry to hear - get well soon

boy he must be reading metrofanatic


It's a club that has won trophies, and where players like Thierry Henry and Youri Djorkaeff have played. I can't wait to get started and help the team win more trophies. I'm very excited to play in this beautiful stadium. I'm eager to meet the fans, to see the atmosphere at the stadium, and how they fire up the stadium."



#1363275 Metro - RSL Game Thread

Posted by Metrohoboken on 09 March 2020 - 07:14 AM


I’m going to call this a good point for RBNY even though it goes down as yet another blown lead. It keeps being the same story: when they press they’re still very very good. But when they don’t press they just hold on for dear life and pray.


Per Second Spectrum, RBNY had 61 high presses against CIN and just 32 against RSL. Over the course of the game on MatchDay 1 Cincy lost possession within 10 seconds 65.57 percent of the time. On MatchDay 2 RSL lost possession inside of 10 seconds just 34.48 percent of the time.


It’s impossible to press for 90 minutes every week, especially at altitude and especially in the summer. Chris Armas has to figure this out because the underlying numbers paint an ugly picture of what’s to come for the Red Bulls.


Also - the Second Spectrum stuff is cool.

Seeing the rookie struggles of Seagrist makes us see why they are targeting this guy. Hope he can come into the fold sooner than later. 

Once Long is back Tarek will play LB
Maybe Tolkien gets start next week but yeah they should just get this guy already

#1362540 Davis named captain

Posted by Metrohoboken on 29 February 2020 - 11:34 AM

He has all the skill except hes not a good player,  wouldnt be a starter this year if they hadnt given him captain.

I hope he steps up.  Chances are he wont.

Yup not good player as starter and significant sub on 2 Supporter Sheild teams
Dont get me wrong I was all for brining in a high level or young prospect at 8

#1362490 Stadium updates

Posted by Metrohoboken on 28 February 2020 - 12:29 PM

Anyone know if parking will cost the same? I was pretty annoyed when they went from $10 to $15 last year....but wouldn't be surprised if they jacked it again.



Park at Iberia lot for $10. Get a voucher for $10 off your tab. Buy a sangria. Walk to stadium. Walk back after the game. Leave much more quickly than if you had parked in the lot.


If you can reasonably walk do so.  The 15-20 min to the game makes this a shockingly better experience.

Good for him! Nice to see a local kid get the armband.

If Im Aaron Long, who has been captaining the US National Team...... and RB wont make me the captain, nor will they let me go to the Premirship......Im probably not thrilled.

congrats to Sean -

local kid - smart all in for NYRB thats for sure. 

Aaron wanted it as surest ticket out of town!

#1361766 Red Bulls need more diversity?

Posted by Metrohoboken on 19 February 2020 - 11:11 AM

He played for us for a lot of years, never a peep about him being a bad guy or a problem. 2-days after a transfer, then you leak these reports. So similar to how the Eagles tried to smear DeSean Jackson as being a gang member right after trading him. Just horrible.

How come you never published Kemar being a bad guy before?

That report was the first Ive ever heard of your website. I thought it was weak and unethical. I, for one, will never look or aknowledge your site ever again.

If others enjoy your site. more power to them. Every person has the freedom to like what they please.


I see this as not a smear but a piece to a puzzle.  I don't think of Kemar as a bad guy for not showing back up the quickest post international dates.  Maybe that is part of negotiating tactic or he has lots of family commitments and he needs to take care of and NYRB were not flexible with extending his trips.  So he did it intentionally or accidentally, got away with it and continued to do it or Jesse was ok with it but kinda put other people in awkward position.  They put up with not the exemplary behavior because Kemar was excellent and a great teammate 99% of the time.  Hard worker, motivated gave it his all kinda called others out for not working the hardest when they were at practice.     


after last season he was unhappy over his pay and very much wanted to prove himself in Europe which he wanted to do it for years


No biggie.  I did and continue to think well of him.   Would welcome him back to the team. 


If I had to have him someplace I'd probably hire a local person to make sure he makes the plane but I personally would have paid him 700K and made sure to keep him.  

Best of luck Kemar
