#1363313 Omir and Duncan on provisional Olympic roster

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 09 March 2020 - 02:52 PM

Given the group they are in, it is quite possible that they will fail to qualify yet again

From the right side

Like every RSL attack today

I wonder if they saw something

Also, Parker has been low key not very good since he signed that contract

Inches away there.


#1360486 Kemar sold

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 31 January 2020 - 10:03 AM

If Kemar just really wanted to go to Europe (like Tyler Adams), that would be one thing. That's beyond our control
 
But it was more than that.
 
1) Kemar was unhappy with his pay. Which was totally understandable. He was probably the best bargain in the entire league with the amount we were paying him. Yes, he signed that contract, but there is NO reason we couldn't have given him a raise. 
 
2) He specifically stated that he wanted out of Red Bull because of the way we've treated out veterans/legends (Dax, Sacha, Robles, BWP) and that he did not like he direction this team was going.
 
He's a MLS Best XI player. And by all accounts, his absence was the main reason why we did not make MLS Cup in 2018. To only get $1.5M for him is an absolute joke. I am so disgusted with this move.

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 08 January 2020 - 02:15 PM

More to the point, think of how many people would buy them who would never go to games because of the takeover

Might be embarrassing

Just one more data point against our Austrian Overlords

I Think one of our jerseys should be white/black halves anyway


#1357716 Has the team ever been booed on opening day?

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 08 December 2019 - 12:59 PM

We looked like absolute dogshit vs Cincy at home this past year and it was only a Connor Lade once in a lifetime strike that saved us.

Now I know we were missing a few regulars for that one, but still.


And our roster is not now?

The silence, it is deafening

Two things would have to happen for them to get boo'd that first game; they would have to totally shit the bed in the transfer window, and lose the game.     If those both happen, I can easily see an immediate, vocal response.  But if they win, or they sign a bunch of promising talent that simply fail to gel in time for the first game,  I wouldn't expect it.


So theyre getting booed then


#1357029 Contract deadline day

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 21 November 2019 - 02:12 PM

Out:
Robles, BWP, DE7, Beze, Koffi, Louro and Epps.

This team makes it easy to not show up to the stadium.


Counterpoint :

Robles : Substantial cap savings, and his back up was the starter (**** NE) and supposed long term local boy solution.

BWP : Past it

DE7 : Never clicked

Louro, Epps : Not RB I worthy IMO.


(Ill leave aside Beze since I dont know his cap hit and I thought he was fine depth.  I dont know enough about Koffi either)

My main issue is I dont trust Hamlett or Armas in the least.


#1357015 Contract deadline day

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 21 November 2019 - 01:44 PM

BWP I get but Meara isn't better than Robles, and that's just the truth. We're not going to do anything with the 200k savings.


400k.

In a vacuum, all of these moves make sense.  

Given the current FO ability or lack thereof in identifying incoming talent, I think this will be a net negative.


#1356212 What would it take for Red Bull to sell?

So would Dieters severed head shoved up his ass.


#1356129 NYCFC is owned by slavers

Posted by Thomas A Fina on 24 October 2019 - 04:23 PM

If I didn't know better, I might have thought that was a NYRB team playing a playoff game wearing light blue jerseys.


Who knew MPF was transmittable?
