Who was captain when Robles was out? I totally missed it


BWP

Sort of. Tony Meola left for a bit and came back, same with Zach Thornton.

Upon looking into it Petke and Meola both had gaps of 7 years between league appearances for Metro. Thornton (who I totally forgot about) had an amazing 11 years in between stints, but never played a league game after returning--he only played 1 USOC game in 2008. Meara's is almost certainly the longest gap in between league games for a player consistently under contract with NY during that time (I know he went on loan to NYCFC for a year, but he was still technically under contract with us).

Side note: I hate the current format. I wish they would expand it and add more amateur teams. The way the current format is when MLS teams enter there will only be 12 lower level teams left which means 8 MLS v MLS match ups. Half the fun of the tournament is competing games vs lower level competition. I'm not sure how to fix this though? Have MLS and USL teams enter in the same round?

Kaku is leading league in assists so far, double Kljestan's total.

Royer needs to be on bench next week.




#1323768 BWP -- greatest player to have ever worn the shirt

Posted by 999duo on 15 April 2018 - 12:55 PM

90 league goals!  Pretty sure he will cruise to 100 this season.

He'd be only the second player in the 100 goal club (10 current members) to only play for one MLS team.

Royer is due for a goal.

 

Also we should be very grateful for Collin's green card that allowed Valot to take a place on the roster. He's been a revelation.

There wasn't a single player that had a bad game. Felipe trade is much more palatable to me now. My only gripe is the stupid yellow picked up by BWP.

Rivas actually looked pretty dangerous the entire game.

If NY advances, we will host the second leg if:

a. We win

b. We draw and the Chivas-Seattle game ends in a draw

c. We draw and Seattle loses 1-0 but advances on PKs

d. We lose but advance in a high scoring game and Chivas-Seattle draw

 

New rules dictate semi-finalists with most points accumulated thus far gets to host second leg, most goals if tied on points. We are leading our side of the bracket with 7 points (5 goals), Seattle has 6 points (6g) and Chivas also has 6 points (7g).

Why don't we just table the BWP convo until next offseason when he's once again scored 20+ goals in MLS. Although I don't expect that to change anyone's opinion

Anyone who is saying let BWP go is INSANE. Dude scored 24 goals. He's been consistent. There are very very few players in the world who would be guaranteed to match his level of production and none of them are coming to MLS. He will inevitably score 20+ goals across all comps next year and people will still complain. I don't get it. You can complain about playoff production, but that's more of a team thing. If any striker put away 100% of their great chances in high pressure games they'f be the best player in the world. And btw he's still the team's alltime leading scorer in the playoffs by a wide margin [/rant]

List of players protected from expansion draft also released on 12/10. Should tell us something.
