#1360250 New 2020 RBNY Jersey - Black

Posted by Giants3b on 29 January 2020 - 04:42 PM

Were not DC United

Typical tone deafness

This is a nod to Metro, some people in this fan base will just never be happy. There's plenty of legitimate things to be upset about, but being upset about a Metro jersey being too similar to a DCU jersey is obtuse.

This is some really great fandom. 




#1355941 Lade retires

Posted by Giants3b on 23 October 2019 - 09:21 AM

Armas Was part of a SS winning team too LMAOROFL

He was by all measures a great assistant, some people can't make the jump to manager. Easy as that.




#1355930 Lade retires

Posted by Giants3b on 23 October 2019 - 08:58 AM

Let's not make Lade into a hero. Longevity does not equal quality. He was a borderline MLS 2.0 role player that - when he was on the field - teams regularly targeted as an obvious weak spot.

But don't worry, if you want to deify Lade, you've got a younger, slightly taller, slightly worse option in Buckmaster still on the roster today.

Lade was a nice outside back option for a number of years and busted his ass every time he was out there on the field. He was part of the incredible culture that won three shields. It's shameful that you can't recognize a respectable career of someone who exemplifies the part of this organization that's actually admirable.

When are we getting a Taxi statue outside RBA?




#1326771 Louis Nganioni on Trial

Law of averages after Palsson, Roben Bover, Brian Neilson, Obekop.

I thought Bover actually had something going. But what do I know, if I ran things we'd still have a CB pairing containing Tyler Ruthven.

I'm excited about this. Seeing academy kids come back makes me feel warm inside.

#1319984 Felipe for Tim Parker (NOT a rumor)

Does that mean for one year, and we get it back?

We get it back in 2019. Not every team has an extra permanent international slot ;)

To throw your hands up in the air and declare the Sacha trade a failure after barely seeing either player play 90 minutes is incredible. Rivas is 23 and Redding is 21, either of them are barely the players they can potentially be.




#1319851 Felipe for Tim Parker (NOT a rumor)

Good points there. I think the fact Redding sucked forced this move, and Rivas appears to be a significant downgrade from Gonzalo. There is a reason why these two guys were bench players for shitty Orlando team. They are young though and Sacha was old.


Remember, those two guys are hardly developed. Our system turned Aaron Long, a recycled USL player, into a damn good starting CB.


#1284192 Daniel Royer to be signed

Posted by Giants3b on 28 July 2016 - 03:25 PM

We may be getting ahead of ourselves - they may just be bringing him in as an upgrade to the street team

We're severely lacking depth there ever since Rainbow Rob tweaked his ankle. This is worth every penny.

The red and black stripes are a real heart breaker.

Marsch on Soccer Morning just now: USOC is important because we've never won a trophy. Uhhh… what? #RBNY

I guess Jesse and City fans agree on something?
