#1362293 "There is no Offseason" 2020 Thread

Posted by Mynameisfutbol on Yesterday, 03:32 PM

Mearas distribution has always been better than Robles, which is important if you want to build quickly from the back. Something that always drove me nuts about Luis was him getting the ball passed back and instead of playing out with his back line, he would wave everyone up the field and then boot the ball resulting on a loss of possession.

That and crosses...

Thoughtful and considered leadership does not mean instructing your underlings to get business done for the sake of doing something. Doing something simply for the sake of doing it because it might make some fans happy in the near term, is the very definition of bad management. Might as well sell the team to James Dolan. 


And get Isiah Thomas as GM


#1361974 Some people remember Petke firing

Posted by Mynameisfutbol on 21 February 2020 - 12:02 PM

For whatever reason, this hasn't been reported on, or the Red Bulls did a great job of keeping the lid on the real reasons for Petke's firing.  But I'm convinced it was more than just thinking Petke wasn't a great manager. 

In the industry, some of the details of termination never see the light of day. As an example, we still do not know the real cause of the firings of Richie and Des days prior to the start of the season. There has been plenty of theories and rumors but nothing concrete. And if I am not wrong, neither one of them worked for another MLS institution after that.

The folks at MLS Extra time podcast have a fine discussion about the whole BWP situation going to LAFC. Worth a listen. I hope it really works for him out West and I am looking forwards to see him return to RB arena

To go into the season without a proven striker is absolute nonsense.


We went into last season with a proven striker who had stopped scoring, and gets hurt for a long period of time on top of it. Not much better

So in other words, BWP contributes reliable +10 goals each season, which will now go to LAFC, with nothing in return for us!


BWP only had like 2 goals since the fall in 2018. How much do you want to pay for that kind of productivity?

I for once have to agree with the OP. Metro was not a panacea and you could seriously say it was a bigger shit show than what we have with RB.

I understand people gave issues with the soda can company being the new owners and blah blah blah blah, but just thankful that it is not a tampon companys logo on our jerseys



#1361004 Hamlett gets a new boss: Kevin Thelwell, Head of Sport

The folks at the Total Soccer Show go into detail about the work of Thelwell and what RBNY fans should expect. Darry Grove thinks we should be very excited.

So the question is who orchestrated this move. If it was a mandate from Ralf it would go against all beliefs here that the mothership is detached and does not care about the NY team

It was a beautiful sunny winter day in NYC today. The women were out at lunch time, and met an old friend for drinks.

Tomorrow the sun will come out and I will get myself ready to go skiing for the weekend. Life is good

Soccer can wait, there are other things that are more important in life. This is just a minor bump on the road

Puta madre!

We sign players and people bitch
We do not sign players and people bitch
We hear rumors on Twitter and people bitch
We do not hear rumors and people bitch
We sign depth and people bitch
We do not sign depth and people bitch
We pay little for a player and people bitch (read scrub)
We pay a lot for a player and people bitch
We do not know how much we payed for a player and people bitch

You can see the common theme... our FO sucks

I dont know if they think we are morons...

Just be careful there. Maybe they have done a data dump of MF post and have found plenty of evidence, even without having to use any machine learning


#1359009 This is going straight into dead horse territory

Posted by Mynameisfutbol on 11 January 2020 - 08:12 PM

We accepted less for his sale in exchange for a portion of the transfer fee when he moves - presumably up to a Big 4 league for big money. An owner solely concerned about whats best for Metro might've played that differently. Maybe they would've kept him another half season to showcase him for a big summer transfer. Who knows. Hopefully we'll one day know what it's like for Metro to have gung-ho ownership!


Dude! I know this is going straight into dead horse territory but Metro is dead and has been dead for over 10 years. And it i am not wrong, it was such a clusterfuck. Some people on this board refer to the original club as if it was all roses.

As per Tyler, he has the potential to be so much better than Demme and should he be sold eventually, the monies should me higher and we should get a good cut out of it. If i recall correctly Tylers contract was up and he was not going to renew with us and could have walked out the door and we would had gotten zilch
