You don't say...

 

Former Red Bulls managing director Marc de Grandpre could very well be heading back to the Major League Soccer club.

According to one source close to the team, de Grandpre is in line to become the Red Bulls' commercial manager.

I'm sure he works cheap.

Looks like they want one more go around trying to make this project work. I give them two or three more years.

Really....REALLY?!  Fuck this scumbag. 

 

The man who fired Bruce Arena has no business doing anything at this club.

More emphasis on the energy drink. Glad Harraby isn't here to drone on about this because I wouldn't want to see the pathetic attempts to argue against him to justify such a pathetic, stupid idea.

I really hope this isn't RB GmbH's response to NYCFC.

About the only positive thing I can say is that it's not Lalas. Other than that this is a disaster if it happens.

Complete and utter disaster on the marketing front.  We are fucked if this guy is hired.  For those of you who are new, he is THAT bad as an executive.

 

They must REALLY be out of ideas if this is the guy they're going after.

TRUTH. The only positive thing is that he will be such a disaster that the soda jerks will have no choice but to get out.

"Commercial Manager" ? Sounds like they are inventing a position for him, as long as they keep him from the day to day operations of the club he shouldn't be able to us that much harm seeing as how are marketing budget is $0.

 I have a funny feeling if they're bringing him in our marketing budget is about to increase.  I also have full confidence that he still has no fucking idea how to market a football club.

I don't remember him being bad at marketing at all. From what I recall, he was completely over his head as a soccer manager; had no idea of what was going on and fired Bruce Arena for no reason. But if they keep him away from the sporting side, I don't think this move is terrible. It's just not great.

Okay, so.....what you're saying is you're trying to get me to not renew my season tickets? 

 

 

Time for BillR to fire up the "Here Before, Here After, Here Despite RB" shirts.
