The only winger we know 100% is going to start is Royer. Behind him, and on the right, is a jumble of Muyl, Etienne, Valot, Bezecourt, Ivan, Epps, Mines and Fernandez.

 

I don't really hate that, as I think they're all above average MLS players or guys with potential to be great MLS players, so let them fight it out in training. It'd be great to have a sure-shot, game changing right winger, but that's clearly not in the cards. I'd rather have a tough competition with an handful of solid guys rather than the MLS alternative of a couple of mediocre dudes making a black hole on the field.

 

I wonder who they look at as a back-up for Kaku.

I've always thought the competition for spots thing is over rated.  You don't get to this level without being driven, and I'd rather have one All Star and a decent backup than 6 pretty good guys fighting it out..

Valot is more an attacking player and I think CCJ is ahead of Beze

yeah... more like "is Valot RM #1 or #2?"

"Due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be playing Real Salt Lake on Thursday. We will play a closed-door match. Our opponents technical staff has asked that the match not be streamed or photographed. No information will be provided from the game."

Start your conspiracy theories.

It's some scrub team we were able to get last minute, and they don't want to be seen publicly getting beat 14-0

RBNY has a scouting department?

RB Global has a big one, and they throw us the occasional bone

Koko's standards might be a tad bit high, but its kind of encouraging that the additional cap resources from MLS and more ambitious owners have pushed the league to the point that we're even having a conversation about keeping 4 starting quality fullbacks on the roster. I feel like it wasn't that long ago you were lucky to have a decent player past the 14th spot on the roster.

There was a time when Andrew Boyens played more minutes for us in a season than Rza did last year.
