#1359563 Bobby Edwards from the Northern Irish second division

Posted by Eleazar on Yesterday, 09:09 AM

He's currently on the books (if he even gets paid) at a SEVENTH-TIER English club.

Where did they even find him? Great work by his agent.


Is he Ivan's agent, too? 

#1359558 Random Player Name Thread 2020

Posted by Eleazar on Yesterday, 02:52 AM

The guys that are attainable also have to hustle on defense and try to win the ball when we don't have it. If they don't hustle, then RBNY's not gonna spend $$ on getting that type of player. 

#1359229 Brought back Sims

Posted by Eleazar on 15 January 2020 - 04:29 PM

We keep Sims and add a big time attacker then I'm legitimately excited for next year.


Being pursued by 2 teams in the Championship. imo, Sims won't be coming back and would prefer to be part of a promotion push/relegation battle.

subject to allocation order?

Does seem odd. $2m + for him? 

#1358946 Red Bull opts out of MLS retro gear merchandise launch

Posted by Eleazar on 10 January 2020 - 01:57 PM

Maybe we will get Metro-themed tarps...


With the face of each the coaches from 1996-2012 on a tarp, similar to that ESC scarf from ~10 yrs ago. 

#1358920 Getting players green cards

Posted by Eleazar on 10 January 2020 - 09:30 AM

I have always liked looking for deals when buying things, like at Nordstrom Rack. Shame that this soccer team operates like that, too.

On the reserves, maybe it'll be Rito on the right, with Seacrest on the left. 

#1358754 2020 NYRBII USL Thread

Posted by Eleazar on 08 January 2020 - 01:33 PM

every yr, RB2 replenishes via the draft and guys that show up via 1st team preseason invite. 


Currently they have:








typically, the reserves usually start out with 12-13 players, then a couple more trickle in as the season progresses. plus the team is supplemented by guys in the academy (Tolkin, O'Toole, plenty of examples) and guys sent down from the 1st team. 


building the RB2 roster is the least of my concerns every yr. there are existing avenues/methods to ensure that the reserves will have enough personnel by the beginning of the USL-C season. 

#1358615 Interim head athletic trainer leaves

Posted by Eleazar on 05 January 2020 - 07:01 PM

My buddy (used to come to a bunch of games with me and my friends) who is an athletic trainer for the Houston Texans, is going to apply. I sent him the link. He's looking to come back closer to home and such. How do MLS trainers get paid? Anyone have an idea?


good for him and good luck!

#1358535 Leo Lopes?

Posted by Eleazar on 03 January 2020 - 12:23 PM

judging by some of the transfer window activity over the past couple of yrs, the identified players weren't gettable and others were signed instead, Sims and Kaku being the exceptions. 

#1358465 New 2020 RBNY Jersey - Black?

Posted by Eleazar on 01 January 2020 - 08:49 PM

that away kit is absolute FIRE. I like the black one too.. but it'll get annoying when everyone in the league has the same design.


that black track jacket, though. that's a must have. i like the previous black track jacket that was a STH gift, the one with the red and blue trim near the shoulders...shoutout to BillFromAstoria! 

#1358415 Hamlett is in so far over his head

Posted by Eleazar on 30 December 2019 - 05:53 PM

They might realize when we miss the playoffs one of these years.


Which do you think is the bigger concern for RBG? Missing the playoffs, or not developing anyone for RBS or RBL to get on the cheap? They certainly don't care about attendance. 

#1358412 Pro/rel, again

Posted by Eleazar on 30 December 2019 - 05:40 PM

i do think that's how it's gonna work, though. when that Upper League is established, entry into MLS is via MLS2 only. 

#1358411 First offseason rumor: Insaurralde

Posted by Eleazar on 30 December 2019 - 05:28 PM

welp, maybe theyll sign someone with a little more experience for CM.



The Sacha for Rivas/Redding trade happened in early Jan of 2018. In the 5 weeks at the end of Jan to early Mar, they brought in contributors to our best ever season: Rza Casseres Kaku Parker Duncan


The big productive acquisitions in 2015 were brought in by Curtis close to the end of Jan through mid Feb: Felipe Zubar Sacha Grella.


And in both offseasons, they brought in influential CMs. Whether they're [C] material is something else. Maybe they do a trade within MLS, they do have a bunch of open senior roster spots and we need the help in CM. I like Valot, but he's a possible injury risk.
