In Topic: RBG strategy/philosophy for NY

Yesterday, 09:41 AM

It's all about selling beverages... The transfer fee is just ad revenue.


That's been the narrative for the past decade, except in the corporate world, it doesn't work like that. Each division of Red bull global would have its own P&L and has to answer to why they were or were not profitable. If Leipzig spends $100M on inbound signings, they better make it back via increased TV revenue, tournament winnings, etc. They can't just say "well the beverage division sold more cans, so it's ok that we're operating at a deficit


It's the reason why RBNY will never again be a big spending team. There's simply no reason to drop $10M on an incoming transfer if the ultimate end result (winning MLS cup, winning CCL) will not result in them recouping their $10M investment.

Even spending less and hoping to "flip" the player will now be seen as risky thanks to the Kaku debacle. Not to mention Jorgensen.

Their philosophy is to make money. Not to prop Leipzig up. If they've already developed an asset they can monetize (by selling to an outside team) then they will.

Really don't like him at that RB position. Only caught the second half but Leipzig looked poor most of the day.

Not to mention piece of shit Jaime Moreno. Although I'm pretty sure I never rooted for the guy while he was here

probably Southhampton has the option to extend.  if he does well with RBNY, then they might still be able to sell him to another EPL or Championship team this summer.  but if they loan him out until December, then it becomes harder to sell him.  Plus his contract ends May 2021 so if they don't sell him this year, they will probably not get any $$$ for him and he'll walk as a free agent.
