I think the turnover is way too quick, you know, not just because Ive gone now, began the familiar refrain. I think theyre just a little bit too quick to let players go when its more about the age than what they can do on the pitch. I think the way they play, the system is unbelievable But I think it will be tough for them to win a MLS Cup against what other teams are doing I think it puts way too much pressure on the young guys to come in and win a trophy, win a cup.
While most of the players weve been linked to so far have been 21 and under our head of sport and coach have said that they value experience.
They tried to loan in a 27 year old Ilori and were at least somewhat interested in a 27 year old Cartabia, so while the Red Bull model is well established I think there is more opportunity to acquire players outside of the restrictions than there has been in the past.
its really hard to get players who are starting or rotational starters at their clubs after end of Jan because most teams would want to get a replacement. While we for sure will get some Yearwood situation guys, ideally want one DP who's coming from a situation where they are playing some. So in my book Thelwell has two weeks before i start getting pissed.
Yeah this is where I am at for the same reasons. Someone who is an important contributor for their team isnt leaving unless a replacement has already been signed, the team is looking to cash in, or they have recently fallen out of favor/have an expiring contract in their current situation.
With their sole focus on Europe, some movement before the end of the month would be nice.
What does this mean? Thelwell was only hired a year ago and has only actually been in New York for six months. There has been a global pandemic the entire time which has impacted all of professional soccer. What are you blaming Thelwell for? In my view he is only now really running things.
Im not blaming him for anything. Im saying he has to clean up the mess and deal with the ire of whatever is left of a mostly apathetic fanbase.
The terms of the deal would also keep in place plans for an under-22 player initiative set to begin in the 2021 season, the source said. That new discretionary spending category would allow teams to sign up to three players under the age of 22 with no limitations on acquisition costs, as long as the players salary is less than the maximum budget charge, which is set to be $612,500 in 2021. The under-22 initiative player signings would then be counted at a reduced budget charge similar to young designated players
