#1342397 2019 NYRBII USL Thread

Posted by Brian.MLS on 09 March 2019 - 03:16 PM

how have Koffi and Yanes looked?

Koffi looked very good in the first half. Wasn't called on as much in the second half. Yanes looked great in the second half. Had a shaky first half though, which may be why SPR attacked his side more in the second half. Had a few great moments.

Decent attendance from it being a nice day. Steve Jolley, CJ Brown and the USL guys outside the 18 are here in attendance.

At kickoff, exactly 100 players can claim they have played for NYRBII.

Pure speculation (CAPS-Players not yet announced or might have been cut):


Bench: NUHU, BOATENG, LOEBE, Rito, ZAJEC, ELNEY and Mines.

Things may look a bit different if they bring in some academy kids on loan, White or Jorgensen are in the mix, they want Valot and/or Meara to get some minutes, other trialists (such as the RB Brasil kids) are signed over those mentioned.

#1342002 Rece Buckmaster Signed to RBNY II

Posted by Brian.MLS on 05 March 2019 - 01:05 PM

Hearing Buckmaster signed a first team deal and will wear #91.

EDIT: May be a USL deal but has a CCL spot.

CCL website is showing him on the roster.

You mean we tore out our hair for nothing when we lost him in the expansion draft? LOL

I know a lot of people that are really high on him.

I just dont see it. Most of his solid plays in the USL were him backtracking to catch up to a play where he lost his mark, was beat to the ball or was caught napping.

#1341480 Traitor(?) Rossi training

Posted by Brian.MLS on 27 February 2019 - 01:27 PM

ESPN is saying that he's going to the Galaxy, could just be a trial or a deal could pretty much be in place already.

Salary cap doesn't apply to LA...

#1341445 Stream quality of Yahoo sports

I am able to cast to my Chromecast on my TV tonight using the Yahoo Sports app. Didn't have that option (or somehow missed it) last week.

#1341223 Traitor(?) Rossi training

Posted by Brian.MLS on 22 February 2019 - 01:09 PM

The bottom line question is whether he will help us hoist the cup? Look, we want the cup. Does he help us get it?

If BWP goes down and my choices are Jorgensen, White or Rossi... I'm taking a healthy Rossi.

Biggest question is if he could pass a physical. It seems we are a bit more cautious when it comes to that.
Remember, we brought Babajide Ogunbiyi back in 2012 after we drafted him in 2009, but he went to Viborg instead of taking a developmental contract. He played really well for a couple years there. Didn't pass his physical here in 2012, but went on to play for 5-6 more years in Europe including the Danish Superliga, after we released him.

How is it only 1 min of stoppage time? Lade was down for a few minutes alone, nevermind all the chatting the ref was doing with players.

#1340883 2019 Preseason games

Posted by Brian.MLS on 20 February 2019 - 10:35 AM

I have been following the team for many years and their preseason communication is always terrible , This year they have outdone themselves ,it's worse than terrible. a few photos !!

Yeah, I thought they did a decent job the past two years, largely due to Vazzano. This year has not been good. Someone argued that they dont want to tip off our guys to Pantoja. BS - the prelim roster was due days ago.

They wonder why the media in the area are dropping like flies or going to Yankee Stadium instead.

#1340865 Random Player Name Thread 2019

Posted by Brian.MLS on 20 February 2019 - 07:44 AM

I've decided if I ever own a team, I'm hiring MiLo as one of my scouts. I own a few shares of Chattanooga FC, but I dont think they have too much interest in my opinion. But if they do...

#1340801 Abang's loan terminated

Posted by Brian.MLS on 19 February 2019 - 12:42 PM

-2015: Brought over from shady Rainbow FC.
-Plays on loan at NYRBII, performing well.
Gets first team minutes.
-2016: Gets disgruntled he isn't getting first team time. Says he is too good for USL team. Rides the bench with USL team until moved.
-Goes on loan at Hobro. Hobro fed up with him off-field, cancels loan 6 months early.
-2017: Deadline transfer drama with Naestved after trialing with a different team. Hobro doing everything possible to move him to avoid paying RBNY.
-Goes on loan at SJK. SJK rips him and cancels loan deal 2 months early.
-Goes on loan at Astra Giurgiu. Steals from teammates a day after meeting with team owner.
-2018: Comes back to RBNY. Loaned to USL team. Stomps on the back of leg of an opponent. Gets red card. Loses cool on ref, pushes Sekagya, kicks a cone and nearly hits a ballkid, gives fans the finger. Gets 3 game suspension going into the playoffs.
-Gets pulled over for possession. Regardless of how you feel about this, the guy is on thin ice and now can't leave NJ.
-2019: Misses preseason due to charges. Sold.

If there was ever a player I wanted to get rid of, it was Abang.

Good riddance.
