FCC Expansion Draft

Today, 06:15 AM

Just some added context for tomorrows expansion draft.

Draft involves 18 teams, FCC can only select 5 players, 1 max from each team.

If we do lose a player, we get $50k GAM from MLS.

Players on our reserve/supplemental roster would need to be placed on the 20 man senior roster for FCC.
Our reserve/supplemental roster is:
Etienne Jr, Ndam, White, Louro, Mines, Bezecourt, Muyl and Valot.
Some of these are no brainers to add to the 20 man senior roster, others might help make protecting players easier, also HGPs are automatically protected.

Must protect players with no-trade clauses.
HGPs/Gen Adidas automatically protected.
DPs not forced to protect.
Need to protect at least 3 INTL players.


2019 NYRBII USL Thread

06 December 2018 - 06:16 AM

With schedule being released on Monday (12/10), I figured now is a good time to start this thread.

In the meantime, some former player movement (I will update this by making edits to this post as changes happen):
Speedy Williams may not get a chance to win a 4th USL Cup in a row as he wasn't retained by LouCity. Bring back the lucky Speedy!

Tampa Bay is keeping their number of former Red Bulls alive. Despite not resigning Flemmings and Bonomo (they did resign Najem), they signed Brandon Allen.

Junior Flemmings is onto Phoenix Rising, where former academy and U23 player Joey Farrell was re-signed.

Zach Carroll is staying with 1868, Swope Park resigned Justin Bilyeu (and former academy player Ethan Decker)

Tyler Ruthven resigned with ATL2.

GK Kyle Reynish retired.

Konrad Plewa will return to RSLs reserve team.

Kosuke Kimura and Bolu Akinyode will return to Nashville SC.

In Sacramento, Rafi Diaz returns and they are negotiating to keep Jeremy Hall.

Former U23 player, Thomas de Villardi signed with Austin Bold after being plagued by injuries while with Minnesota United.

Academy Director David Longwell Out

Not overly surprised. Our well is drying up in some aspects.

That being said, he was only here from August of last year until this year and was able to bring in some quality players from Orlando's youth system.

Tyler Adams Players Tribune Article

23 November 2018 - 08:12 AM

Great article.

The last paragraph eludes to the fact that Tyler may be leaving shortly.

Leganes wants Kaku?

06 September 2018 - 07:03 AM

There is some speculation that Leganes would be willing to pay a MLS record transfer fee for Kaku. Considering the financial impact of staying in La Liga, they may be willing to buck up.
