Now that BWP is not in plans for 2020 let's begin funding campaign for bwp statue at rb arena. if you agree that he was our best striker ever wouldn't be great to see it before entering stadium. Can someone start the crowdsourcing program?

RB cannot afford a statue, if they want one?

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

No MLS cups, no statue. Plus the team can pay for this themselves if they want it.

The old thread about whether he deserves one or not...

Statues in my opinion, not that my opinion means much are only reserved for Champions. BWP didnt win an MLS Cup so statue for him.

Agree... First statue should be for the most prominent player when this team wins an MLS cup.

 

After that, you can backtrack and get guys like BWP, Henry, Marsch, etc.

He had his number 99 retired (in a ceremony that should have been held for his retirement). That's enough.

Henry Henrying against the flagpole outside the arena (he reset the clubs standards and brought in the first real trophy) before anything else.

Another thing that would've been a fun no-brainer for Owners Who Care.

RED. BULL. OUT.

He'd have fun getting his picture next to it when Montreal comes here to play.

BWP gets shit for not stepping up in big moments (i.e. playoffs), but did you know he's actually tied with Robbie Keane for the most playoff goals over the past decade?

 

Playoff goals, 2010 - 2019:

  • Robbie Keane: 9
  • Bradley Wright-Phillips: 9
  • Jozy Altidore: 8
  • Will Bruin: 8
  • Landon Donovan: 8

And he achieved that in limited playoff appearances considering he's the only player on that top 5 list not to win MLS Cup, let alone make the Final...

Through no fault of his own, Wright-Phillips is the only guy in this top five that couldn't cash his postseason goals in for an MLS Cup triumph.

 

He's also second behind Wondo in game-winning goals from 2010-2019:

  • Chris Wondolowski: 44
  • Bradley Wright-Phillips: 33
  • Kei Kamara: 31
  • Robbie Keane: 27
  • Diego Valeri: 25

He's hardly had limited appearances, since we make the playoffs every year.

You're right.   I should have said fewer appearances/minutes...  Still, he compares favorably to Keane, with whom he's tied at the top of the list with 9 goals:

 

Keane: 21 MLS playoff games, 1,777 minutes played

BWP: 20 MLS playoff games, 1,624 minutes played
