Side note: if we finish second in E, we play champions of F.

:pint: A toast the lads. A win is a win. ATL had a lot of possession but couldn't finish. We were lucky that their top scorer Martinez was out for them. We also flubbed some of our chances.


And they are lucky that we don't sign a top scorer...

Seemed more than adequate. Not sure how he is going forward, but defending is years ahead of Seagrist.

We have 5 players who have more goals on the year than the entire blue team combined.

Seriously, how can you play a 2-forward lineup when you have a total of 3 forwards on your roster?

 

I know they are counting Royer as one (and Omir could be one), but come on.

Dear RBNY graphics department:

1. Valot is from Pau, not Monaco

2. Monaco is NOT in France

Muyl's time to shine.

 

I'm serious.




#1366579 Hamlett gets a new boss: Kevin Thelwell, Head of Sport

Posted by MetroFanatic on 10 July 2020 - 10:15 PM

 

Yes, but who among us was actually "concerned" that Hamlett's role would be diminished? I don't think there's a person on this board who wasn't hoping for exactly that. 


"Excited", not "concerned"...




#1366512 Valot / Casseres no longer international

Posted by MetroFanatic on 09 July 2020 - 10:09 PM

Yeah per Google:

In general, the Austrian Nationality Act does not allow dual citizenship except for persons who obtain two citizenships at the time they were born (e.g. a person born to Austrians living in the US acquires both Austrian and US citizenships at the time of birth).


Green card is not dual citizenship.




#1366495 Valot / Casseres no longer international

Posted by MetroFanatic on 09 July 2020 - 06:52 PM

Somehow Royer still doesn't have a green card...

 

International Players 1 Egbo, Mandela International 2 Jensen, David International 3 Jorgensen, Mathias International 4 Pendant, Jason International 5 Kaku International, Designated Player 6 Royer, Daniel International 7 Rzatkowksi, Marc International

 

So two open inter slots, two DP slots, 4 roster slots... We're set!

Dallas can just play Nashville 3 times to make up the regular seasons standings.

 

Problem solved!

With at most 7 games to play and no guarantee of any season after, I hope we go all in on the press.  Have a clear plan for using all 5 subs and run the other team into the ground.

 

Of course, what I expect is Armas will go completely in the other direction.


Armas had at most 3 games to play in the 2018 playoffs... and did not go on all in on the press. :(

So we now have a group with 6 teams and group with 3 teams. This tournament will go swimmingly. 


Worked for the 1950 World Cup!

 

(Groups of 4, 3, and 2 teams...)
