In Topic: Tyler Adams plays for RBL

Today, 08:18 AM

Happy for Tyler, but that goal just ensured that Red Bull will stick to their "groom and promote or sell" philosophy and now have even more room to gloat about how this system works. Meanwhile in Harrison we will bow out of the playoffs in the first or second round with the old man on the team being 25yrs old.

Internet is down at his remote workplace.


He hasn't had internet since bringing in Jorgensen.

In Topic: 2020 NYRBII USL Thread

Academy GK Alex Bobocea, who has spent a few years training with NYRBII and has been the backup for 9 matches over the last few seasons, gets his first minutes after a Wallis Lapsley red card in the 15th minute. Truthfully I am fine if we move on from Lapsley, although under normal circumstances Lapsley would be backing up McIntosh and learning how to become a pro, but mistake after mistake after mistake and often punished for them. Almost all of them are when he comes too far out, including tonight trying to get to a ball before Loudoun did only to not even be close and have a hand ball outside the box to stop the breakaway.

In Topic: Valot / Casseres no longer international

Likely making another international move if we acquired the INTL spot for Muyl.
That would give us 10 slots (had 9 from a permanent trade from Houston back in 2009).

It also means we aren't gaming it like we did in the past (send a player to the USL roster for a game or two, then switch them out).

2. Jensen

5. Pendant
6. Royer
7. Rzatkowski

9. Yearwood
10. ????


In Topic: 2020 NYRBII USL Thread

Our best prospects (Toure, Clark, Hot) have been "stolen" from other academies.
 
Someone out there should write a story on how the blue poseurs have been beating RB to the best local prospects. If only this team had any journalists covering it...


Hamlett getting rid of Jeff Zaun did not sit well with anyone internally. Coaches and parents left to PDA/Cedar Stars and nobody was going after the kids going to NYCFC. Add that to not having a good academy director for a long time (until just recently), that is why our academy isn't what it was just a couple years ago. Sad when you can show the pipeline of Adams, Miazga, Lade, Agudelo, Davis, Muyl, Etienne Jr., etc... and add in the dozens of academy kids that end up in our USL system (and a few elsewhere) and parents are still going elsewhere.

All that said, McCafferty is the real deal and in a few years, I think we start seeing some stars come through. We also have quite a few kids in college that should be getting HGP/NYRBII deals next year, and Clark, LaCava, Toure, Hot, Cummins, Edelman, etc... are being groomed earlier than many prior to them.
