#1352386 Metro - Scum Game Thread

unpopular opinion -   as impressive as Murillo was 1v1 last night, he still finished all those attacking runs through the defenders with a wasted pass or non-shot.   If he gets even 1  assist out of it, all would be forgiven, but he so rarely does.   Sure, he drew a debatable PK, but he's gotta be able to take on defenders AND have an awareness of the other players on the field.




#1352373 Murillo vs Buckmaster

For better or worst, Id be stunned if Lade were on the team next year. I appreciate his longevity and service, but my money is either on him retiring or playing at a lower level.

I'm going with rb2 asst coach

I'm sorry but that would be fucking ridiculous.

BWP scores 20 goals a season for years, finally gets a bad injury this season and Armas now rates a scrub from RBII over him and fans are calling for him to retire as they think he is "washed up".

he had stopped scoring goals and impacting the game well before the injury, going well back into last year. I'm not saying he's done, but that its not unreasonable to think he may be.

If you were in the building when we equalized twice, particularly the silence after the third goal, you'd understand.

I most certainly was in the building.   I was more relieved than entertained.   But I've become a miserable bastard this year.

mlssoccer article today from Doyle is revealing

 

Armas has a long leash – it took a half-season of worse defensive plays than that and a blow-up from his teammates at practice to get Michael Murillo benched). 

 

and even more so about why that chance v NER was created because RZA didn't press the pass before the pass in addition to Long keeping them on sides and then Buck getting on the wrong side of Bou.

 

https://www.mlssocce...week-qa-mailbag

"...blow-up from his teammates at practice"  is a big effing deal.    No  wonder Buckmaster has gotten the minutes.

 

But that little analysis can be very clearly summarized as "Armas Out."  Coming from Doyle, that says a lot.

THIS.  Complainers gonna complain. 

Only question is what was hotter garbage? 

The NYRB finishing or the garbage in the Keegan landfill and that horrible smell at the stadium.

 

Big difference between Royer having a bad night, and other positions having a bad night every night.

 

Also, at least something is being done about the landfill stench

#1351948 The Fire Chris Armas Thread

Posted by RedBullScouse on 18 August 2019 - 01:28 PM

The body language of the players on the field is just negative. Outside of Royer and White it doesn't look like many care, or are hustling.

Something is off for sure.

you didn't see Rza hustling?  Kaku?   What game were you at???




#1351683 So now what's the ideal XI (and subs) from late August on?

Posted by RedBullScouse on 14 August 2019 - 12:31 PM

 

this would look too similar to the shit we tried in the away leg in Mexico in CCL this year, where our central midfield shape was decimated and we gave up like 3 goals in 15 seconds.  We absolutely need at a bare minimum 2 real bona-fide central mids playing centrally - not CCJ plus Kaku,  certainly not CCJ plus BWP (how many times do we have to teach you this lesson old man Chris Armas??)

This formation with Kaku, CJ and Taxi  looks a whole lot better than this formation with Valot, Davis and Lade.

List of free agents we could won't get, there about 50 that would make us better so Im not gonna list them all.
Alex markvoic would be something.

#1351652 Young premier league winger = Josh Sims

Personally, I think Jourgenson was a Ralf signing too. Basically told the feeder club to sign this kid and stash him for experience. If he pans out, well bring him up to the big time in Germany.

Theres no way you can convince me that Hamlet was tracking this guy and made a play for him.

is there any doubt?

 

I'm all for leveraging the RB global reach, but Hamlett is like a vestigial organ at this point, atrophied to nothingness by reliance on / neutering by papa RB.

We had success in 2017 with a 3-man backline.  It just needs to be coached right...

then we're fucked

#1351261 Murillo on trading block

Posted by RedBullScouse on 09 August 2019 - 08:49 AM

It's a tough call because the attitude is clearly something you don't want to influence other players. Bottom line though is that Armas isn't getting through to him in any meaningful way and Murillo has cost plenty of goals this season.  I lean towards moving him if we're keeping Armas. 

Armas needs to get on the phone with Jesse and learn how to say  "mucho trabajo"

#20?

 

I don't like it.  Way too low a number for this squad.

 

Let's hope more Joel Lindpere and less Walter Garcia.
