#1388853 Some people joke about the draft

Posted by The Falcon on 16 August 2021 - 07:09 AM

I. I believe. I believe that. I believe that we. I believe that we will get a good draft position this year!

You really put any stock in the draft?

We're just not a good team right now. League gets better every year and our roster is not that talented/competitive to other clubs.

Crappy team vs shit team. Result? Shit show.

We can call the game "The Toilet Bowl!"

#1387287 We never do enough

The league continues to improve every year. Are we improving at same pace or falling behind badly? 

#1387188 Lack of scoring

Posted by The Falcon on 27 July 2021 - 11:58 AM

Do we have good enough players on the roster to achieve the desired results or are we really just a slight upgrade from last year's dismal roster? Lot of great comments above on our FW, MF and D stats compared with the league, but are our players on the field technically skilled enough to play the way Struber wants? Can they execute better precision passes, shoot quality shots on goal, not high or wide, and score a lot more goals? Or are we just jerking off?

#1377346 MLS SuperDraft - Jan. 21 2pm

Posted by The Falcon on 15 January 2021 - 10:07 AM

The Superdraft is becoming more and more irrelevant . I commented once in the past how I can see why and respect Ernst Tanner's (Philly technical director) decision to forego selecting anyone the last 2-3 years. The talent gap and readiness between NCAA and MLS is very wide.  Lot of these guys just aren't ready. Send em to USL if they're professional caliber at all. Sure you get the likes of Larin, Gressel and few others who can play and start right away. But how many players get drafted that won't see the field their rookie year or be kept after 1-2 years? Academies, free agency, international signings is how teams build their rosters IMO. Not through the draft.

#1372108 Gerhard Struber no longer a rumour

Anyone else think we'll start calling this guy Hans Gruber?

#1368074 Can we bring some real talent here?

Posted by The Falcon on 23 July 2020 - 12:37 PM

I have come to the unfortunate conclusion that several players on the field/bench last night are not MLS caliber players.  They were good college players, USL sure, but MLS is getting better and these guys don't seem to make the grade.  Don't believe me? Even Alejandro Moreno said it on the broadcast, that the rest of the east has gotten better but we have not. Davis, Muyl, Stroud, Seagrist, Barlow, White, Tolkin, Lema. Do they add value on the field? Are they a threat to defenses? Hardly any of them put shots on goal, made the GKs work in our three group stage matches. None of these guys are game changers, impact players, threats to the opposition. Barlow and White got some goals last year but then why aren't they starting every game together without question? Yes, this team needs much better players. Time to look in mirror, be honest and make some tough decisions. Some guys are just not MLS level. Move on, sign new guys. 

#1363312 Sky Blue not playing all their games at RBA in 2020

Posted by The Falcon on 09 March 2020 - 02:36 PM

I found it funny and sad that the USWNT sold out RBA no problem for one game that was pretty much a glorified friendly, in March, and we haven't sold out one game in seventeen home games each year in the last few years.

#1358132 #3 team of decade in MLS

Posted by The Falcon on 18 December 2019 - 09:04 AM

Hell of a decade. Lot of changes in player personnel, coaches, front office, but we kept consistency on the field with winning, making the playoffs and Supporters Shields!  We should be pleased.  I know we're upset as of late, but looking back at ten years, we should be pleased.

More money and business for the stadium. Good stuff.  Grounds crew going to have to work OT to keep pitch tip top though.

#1356747 Thierry Henry to Montreal

Posted by The Falcon on 14 November 2019 - 09:42 AM

He's still a better player than pretty much their whole roster.

Good win. Maybe a little lucky? PTFC had several chances come close. But we'll take it. Big game coming up on Sunday!
