The names are bad because they are poor imitations of a Euro team name.  MetroStars may or may not be stupid, but there is no MetroStars that we blatantly copied. 

 

Our current name is the name of our ownership. That is also not a poor imitation of a Euro team name.




#1331678 Ecuador vs Jamaica @ RBA, Friday Sep 7, 8pm

Posted by regulator on 13 August 2018 - 09:13 AM

The Ecuadorian national team will face off against Jamaica next month at Red Bull Arena. The cheapest seats are ~$61 (including fees)...no way I am trying to flip these seats.  If they do any groupon specials in a few weeks, I may pick some seats up then.

 

Hoping Taxi gets a call up for this one. Our next game isn't until 9 days later, plus he wouldn't have to travel for this game.

We have a huge game @ NYC 4 days after this one.

............White

.......Etienne.... Muyl

........Davis....Adams

Lade.. Escobar..ndam.. Parker..murillo
.............robles

I would rather not see Collin but we need to be 100% sharp for the game against Smurfs, so I'd consider throwing him out as a sub this game.

I don't trust lade or kutler matched up against Alphonso Davies on the right, so Murillo has to get the start.

agree with everyone that his skillset at the moment lends itself to an attacking minded winger / outside mid, and not a true forward like BWP.

No, FUCK YOU. We barely beat the scum with our starters, I'd rather lose 5-0 to Columbus than lose to DC.


And let me spell it out for you why. By losing to a competent team like cbus, we've allowed a team in the hunt to gain ground on us. The only thing we accomplished by beating DC was getting ahead of an old and aging rivalry that's been irrelevant for years and has no bearing to this season .

Yes. But double check the signs before you park anywhere.


#1330600 Benfica vs Juventus @ RBA, Sat 7/28

Honestly I think it was just over saturation with soccer (coming on the heels of the world cup) + even fewer stars coming over as they needed post world cup vacation

the prices on stubhub fell thru the floor today - there's a ton of them for sale in the $40 range (before fees).  i am still shocked i was able to break even with this venture.

#1330559 Random Player Name Thread 2018

We're a first place team. I can see us adding another depth player, but there's no reason to uproot what you have going via a trade this late in the season.


#1330510 Metro - Scum Game Thread

Posted by regulator on 26 July 2018 - 11:51 AM

Weird game but thrilled we won.  The 2nd half was just awful. We gave up so many chances but lucked out.  

 

Murillo is ridiculously good with the ball.  It's tough watching him sometimes in the position he plays because he's a better offensive player than anything we could could out there on the right wing.  

 

Etienne and Muyl are basically the same player for different reasons.  Etienne is jinxed when it comes to finishing plays.  And that's a huge problem.  Muyl isn't jinxed with it, he's just not capable of finishing plays.  THey have some positives in other areas, but we need a player who can do it in the final moment. 

 

Kaku is great at finding spaces and playing passes.  Our passing went to shit when Kaku and Etienne were taken off last night.  I wasn't crazy about the subs but I also understand Kaku can't be playing every minute of every game.

good post and i agree. i bet part of the kaku sub was to have him play another 60' vs Cbus in 3 days. Good rotation by Armas.

Derrick does a lot of things well - better than Muyl for sure. Dribbles out of traffic, not afraid to take on people, good speed. He can't finish to save his life - which is a huge no no for a backup striker, but forgivable for an outside mid.

I think the implication is: which (of the 4 kits that we've used this year) is your favorite.
