What Backe has established in 2 years is that he is horrible/hates using bench players. He doesn't even dress a full set of bench players for most games.

What's the difference who the 19th player on the team is? They're never going to see the field anyway. Keep the academy kids and make the fans feel good about the club. Get their families, friends and youth team mates fired up about their local team.

NOPE. Grab a guy from a European 3rd division instead.

The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

It is the perfect Darwinian system at work as long as organized soccer has been in existence.


The player discovery and development processes at work in pro soccer here or anywhere might comprise a 'system' in some sense, but it's not 'Darwinian' and very far from 'perfect.'
No one makes TV commercials to get people to look at their billboards.

I think it hurts the development of American players that so many go to college instead of working their way up to the professional level at a younger age. NCAA doesn't develop players like an academy system and when the players get out of college, they've already lost some prime training years in the process. Maybe Kassel would have stood a better chance if he had stuck with RBNY instead of going to college for three years.


So Kassel would have been better off at the pro level at a young age to develop like Hot?

I know I'm being sarcastic but sometimes there's more to life than developing into a top athlete by 21. Most don't make it....and you never hear about their stories. Something to be said about getting an education.

I'm bracing for the possibility of management filling up all 30 spots, losing the allocation money, and having two players who count for much more than $0 against the cap getting minimal playing time. Not saying it's gonna happen, but you never know.

Or maybe they totally had a bad pre season...or were comfortable were they are and not fight for spots....just saying...we need a competitive 30 , just bc they are 2 homegrown players and are on the roster dosnt mean they have to be there . Look at our first home grow, didn't get to practice slack off got cut , he came back shows up gives his heart and might get his contract pick up.....

The doom and gloom over the two footballers who clearly could displace anyone on the starting XI or bench calls for a proper soundtrack:

Best of luck to both of them - you always want the local kid(s) to do well. Unfortunate part of the business. That said, the logic of signing them for their potential and then not developing it speaks to RBNY's failure in either A) identifying young talent B) developing young talent C) mismanagement of players (out of position, not using subs, not using in friendlies or other tournaments, etc.) D) all of the above. Not sure what is more disturbing between all of the bad trades, contracts, cutting depth, etc.: player mismanagement or the financial mismanagement

What do all these players have in common?











If you said they were cut, traded or forced into retirement under Backe & Soler....you win a chicken dinner.
