#1371037 Where is Thelwell?

Posted by Stefan Schuette on 04 September 2020 - 06:14 PM


Seems that Armas had the freedom to set up the team however he desired and consistently strayed away from the core principles.

The high press is how Bayern and Liverpool won the last two UCLs, not to mention how RB Leipzig got to be Bundesliga challengers. Also, and MOST IMPORTANTLY our best years were under Marsch playing the high press. The system aligns with RBs transfer policy to create players/pick out journeyman thatll fit.

It blows my mind that Armas dropped it (a system he knows well) and replaced it with seemingly nothing.

#1352766 Why can't we just buy a team like LAFC & Atlanta?!

Posted by Stefan Schuette on 26 August 2019 - 04:12 PM

We should take pride in the fact that our players go on to bigger things. Ralf Rangnick's new position at Red Bull is specifically to improve the youth development of New York (and Brazil), and to be honest, most of our MLS clubs aren't doing much for the American player other than fill their bench's with them. I'm a fan of the US national team as well as Metro. 2 birds, one stone.


Jesse Marsch is more an exception than the rule I'm sure, and the fact that an American coach who never played in Europe is now coaching a Champions League team, and one that is having best start to the Austrian league season of any Austrian team in history, is also something I'm proud of, and also something that will work out well for the NT in the future.


What we haven't seen yet, which hopefully will happen, is that our alumni will start coming back after their time in Europe is done to provide mentor-ship for the younger players. Maybe Tim Ream will come back, Tyler Adams and Matt Miazga down the line. It's how it's done in Brazil and Argentina, and I see nothing wrong with that.

Just switched to the yahoo sports stream! Didn't know who was streaming CCL. Funny how no one wants it, I think it's a great tournament.

We can do this. We're at home, and I imagine the players are more motivated now than ever to kick butt. Let's go Metros!


I predict a confident 2-0 home win.

I'll take 3-0!

We can absolutely do it at rba but no one in there right mind should be optimistic knowing this team's playoff history and seeing us do literally nothing for 90 minutes today.



lol sure

Think positive.  "There is no way to happiness - happiness is the way"

Cool article.


Julia Grandpre has the exact same thoughts over the Dax trade that I have.

#1323543 Marsch goes

Posted by Stefan Schuette on 13 April 2018 - 09:03 AM

Being a New York Red Bulls fan is better now than it has been in a long time. We've got a great squad, made up with a good amount of homegrown products and made up entirely of players THAT WANT TO BE HERE, and Marsch has this team playing in a unified style that's easy to the eye. Yeah, we've run short when it matters, but that's gotta end at some point (most teams crash out of the playoffs). Marsch and the team know how to adjust, which they've been doing year to year, it's gonna lead to success.


Stability is key, it took sir Alex 6 YEARS to win anything for Man United. We've never won the MLS cup, but stability has never been our strength. We've got that now, I believe an MLS Cup will follow shortly. Firing Marsch would put us right back to square one.

An MLS regular season game will be a nice refresher compared to a high pressure game against Liga MX opposition. If they play like they did against Chivas, it feels like it should be a blowout.

#1323036 Cahill leaves for Asian $$$$$

Posted by Stefan Schuette on 06 April 2018 - 06:52 PM

Cahill has done virtually nothing, as far as I can tell, but Millwall havent lost a league match since New Years Day and are only one point out of the promotion playoff.

Cahill is back in England? England is such a retirement league.

In other news, Felipe stomped on an Atlanta player at the end of the game, and the whole Atlanta started team running at him and yelling, especially Brad Guzan, and the Atlanta fans booed him on his way to the locker room. Same old Felipe...
