That is a downside of having good players... Can't have it both ways

Should be OK, we have to assume Egbo is good enough to cover at least a handful of games here and there.

 

Omir I don't really see getting a ton of playing time anyway.

Im happy they got named to the list of 50. Congratulations!


The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

Dodged a bullet with Duncan, he's been great so far.

This is just for Qualifying, right?

If we make the Olympics, a new team will be selected.

If they have the Olympics.

Correct. Three senior players would be added to the roster and the bigger name U-23 national team players might also be called in.

Given the group they are in, it is quite possible that they will fail to qualify yet again

Well, they don't want to break from tradition from the senior team.

too bad for them.  Hope they want to show what they are missing.

 

EDIT - yes very strong team. Hope they get to add Adams, Pulisic and the like.

Of course it will be cancelled just when we have our best possible team in years.

Its no embarrassment, thats a strong team. Cannon is getting starts with the Sr. Nats, tough competition for Duncan.

The forwards are all known names and accomplished.

If we qualify, I hope our guys get selected.

They can send a combined team of U23s who play for both DC United and NYCFC instead.
