In Topic: Offseason hasn't started yet, but some people want cuts

The whole "not without a replacement thing" should really apply to Armas too, because in a pinch you guys realize that Red Bull will almost definitely just continue further down the list cheap American coaches with limited to no experience, right?

It only took Henry a month to score for us.  What's this deadbeat waiting for?

 

Pretty wild remembering a time where fans were booing Henry and not Rafa.

Really? Outside of a super young and raw Amando Moreno and his agent (who barely saw any minutes in Mexico, then played with our USL team when he came back and has done very little for Chicago), I don't know of anyone who said this.

In fact, he played Chris Duvall at right back so much as a rookie, his asst coaches advised shutting him down for the rest of the season.

 

Then I take that back, must have my rumors mixed up.

With a squad that had henry, olave, dax and cahill... he should of added more. Arguably the most talented line up in MLS and he only won the supporters shield during his time here.

 

Winning multiple competitions is as much about depth as it is about the four best guys on your roster, probably moreso. Whether you blame Petke or Red Bull for the lack of depth during his tenure is up for debate. We all know it wasn't a Red Bull priority until 2015, but from what I've read here from people who know more than me, Petke had a pretty bad reputation for working with young talent too.

If its a total rebuild Im assuming winning wont be a priority plus Im not sure what hell be like in two years. See BWP drop off.

 

Royer is 29, BWP is 34. Royer's at the spot in his career where he's too old to have much resale value to other teams, but is young enough that we can assume he's got a few years left in his legs. Even if we're clearing out the roster for a rebuild, Royer's one of the guys I'd keep at his current contract.
