RBNY are going to trade for a 36 year old on the last year of his contract in a year where by firing their manager they have effectively punted the season?

You want roster upheaval going to have to wait until after MLS Cup.


The $150k in funny money we are sitting on it order to get him for the rest of the season would outweigh the number of fans that won't return next year after watching the front office give up and do nothing to fix it.

Fair enough, I guess. Short term moves and quick fixes arent moving the needle for me personally.

This winter is massive for the future of RBNY, with the back room staff overhaul there is little room for excuses. If a former PL executive and staff cant get this thing turning in the right direction even the most ardent apologists should be sounding the alarms.

For $150k and a 2nd round draft pick in 2022 we could have had the 5th highest goalscorer in MLS history.


If we wanted an aging all-time leading scorer,
we could have kept BWP.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Not sure if he would cost that much, but thats an interesting profile. Relegated teams and teams with big squads are usually ripe for picking

Interested to see what happens with the roster over the next 5-6 months.


I think he has a release clause of 20m.

Again,special talent.

Pretty sure Tetteh, someone here on loan who has made it clear he wants to get right back to Europe, counts as a short term fix.

Agree that this winter is huge for the future of the team.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

I think hes need to do well here for more than part of season to get back to Europe. If hes good, hed be a longer term solution than Kamara.

Although Kamara would have been helpful against Cinci the last we played them and sent a 100s crosses into Fernandez.

Also, why has a guy like Kamara, who can still score at a decent rate, not last more than a season and a half at a club since hes come back from Europe?

Well looking at our options, we should have, but not going to start beating a dead horse. Every one of us has the same number of goals and assists (in far less time played) than our current group of forwards.

Should have kept BWP...

Should have signed Yimmi Chara and Cristian Pavón... Could you imagine Pavón and Yimmi Chara and Kaku and Royer combining with BWP

That said what's taking so long to sign a big name I want to see Cavani and Mario Mandukić and Juan Fernando Quintero

They have some competition for Cavani's signature...

Oh gosh forget... Yet just another hoop dream.. I wish we could see Cavani join NYRB this season but it won't happen..

Now maybe Rafael Santos Borre?! That's not too much to ask

MLS Transfers so take with a grain of salt:

https://twitter.com/...8686629888?s=19

Remember, they are the kings of making up stuff that makes sense on the surface. This example would be "Oh, MNU just got Kei Kamara, so the starting forward could be out. Who needs a striker. Red Bulls. Let's put this rumor out there."

Realistically, Toye is young and a bit of a surprise hot prospect. but not ready to be starting regularly. Kamara is entering his late 30s and contract expires at the end of the year.

More upside than our current striker options, sans a loaned in and currently unfit Tetteh.

Hes not even on a senior level contract for Minnesota currently, so I wouldnt be opposed unless they are asking for a significant amount of allocation $$.

Can only have so many project strikers with no clear first option however.

This is how a true team with ambition is run....Atlanta United already replaces Pity with another DP from Argentina:
