CCJ going or staying?

17 November 2022 - 02:41 PM

MLS rejected a $5M bid from Lokomotiv Moscow for CCJ. Since they own all the contracts I guess they have carte blanche to make that decision. RBNY and CCJ were open to the move

Per Dyer

Rumored change in MLS playoff format

25 October 2022 - 09:15 PM

Full article available with Athletic subscription

Most important details:

That format will have to change in order to accommodate 30 postseason contests. According to the sources, one possible outcome would be a shift to a World Cup-style playoff tournament. The specifics of what that potential tournament would look like werent entirely known by the sources, but one hypothesized that a format could look something like this:

The top eight teams from each conference would qualify for the postseason

Those teams would be split into four groups of four teams each
Groups would be segregated by conference; Western Conference teams would only be grouped with fellow Western Conference teams and Eastern Conference teams would only be grouped with fellow Eastern Conference teams

As is the case in the World Cup, each team would play three group stage matches, one each against the other three teams in the group

The top two seeds in each group would host two group-stage games; the bottom two seeds would host one group-stage game

The top two teams from each group would advance to an eight-team, single-elimination knockout stage

Like the group stage, the knockout stage would also be divided by conference

Higher seeds would host the knockout-stage matches, with the Western Conference champion advancing to MLS Cup against the Eastern Conference champion

Is Reyes a starter?

19 July 2022 - 11:12 AM

I feel like we need a striker and a RB to make a run. Struber does not prefer 3 big slower CBs as starters - he likes Edwards there due to his speed and agility. So he may not move to RB even when Reyes is fully healthy. That's why they gave up Monzon - Reyes is a sub on this team, who is now back. I think the biggest drop off from last year was Nealis from Duncan downgrade. Harper is not a good defender and is an attacking player, hence he will not replace Dylan. And Dylan is just not a good player.
We are also an injury to Tolkin away from having shit at LB, but at least if everything is prefect, Tolkin covers that spot well. On the right side though, Dylan is a starter even with everyone healthy, and he should be a sub. Schnider needs to step up and get us a couple of pieces now, and who knows, maybe this team can make a run. He needs to do it quickly though, because last reg season game is Oct 9. It will take time to get visa, to get acclimatized, especially if we don't get proven stars. The time is running out.

Reyes is a starter, he probably wont be starting every game this season because of the caution with his return from injury.
