What is a reasonable goal for this season


Team makes it to every game on time?

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Not forgetting or putting equipment on wrong bus?

In the RBA era - every single year, a reasonable goal was to win MLS Cup.
 
Until now. What is a reasonable goal for this season? Making the playoffs? I'm not sure that would be reasonable. That would probably be an over-achievement for this roster.


Goals are meant to be aspirational. I figure a reasonable goal is to qualify for the playoffs and have a decent USOC run.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Only team having a worse offseason than us is Cincinnati.

6m Hearing, per source, that #RBNY is closing in on a contract extension with Cristian Cásseres, Jr.. Hard-working midfielder had 23 appearances (21 starts) in #MLS play & was a regular for the club. Seems like the organization sees him as part of the club's core.

Oh wow this is just like a new signing!  :)+

 

In all seriousness, this is a good move. I like CCJ and hope to see big things from him this year, dominate the midfield like Tyler Adams did.

Great news, keeps him around for at least a bit longer and helps ensure that we get a transfer fee if he's destined for greater things.
