Good news is that I've just accepted a new job. It's good to be one of the people working these days.

Bad news is that the job is in the Philadelphia area.


Very sad to have to move down there this Spring. What should I do with my support? Do I continue to support Red Bulls from a far? Or do I call Harraby Lad and see what a "real" football club is like with the Union?


It's going to be weird not going to Red Bulls games all the time and seeing folks who have been so nice to me over the years. There are some really great folks.

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.

I lived in the philly area when I started coming to games, make the drive

Now it's the RedBulls fans. they may be even louder than the DC guys who, for reasons beyond imagining, had 50 seats saved for them up front.

Philadelphia: I love you guys, really, but you're getting schooled.

The noise in here is deafening.

er MPF?

I think it's an odd question, if you have move to Philly it shouldn't change your team... Philly isn't that far, you could still be a STH from there, I know people who make that commute to work everyday.... you're silly.

I would say, in a way, one was never much of a fan of a team if one's allegiances change as a result of relocation a couple hundred miles away. You wouldn't have posted nearly 4,000 times over the last 5 years on this board if you weren't a die-hard fan, so I think the answer is pretty simple. :cheers:

"The plus side of watching this team for so long is that nothing remotely surprises me anymore. Henry could have taken his shorts off and cocksmacked someone to earn a red, and all I would have said is "That's so Metro." - Regulator

"In between soccer games this weekend, I played 36 holes of golf with my dad. Playing golf, I realized, is a bit like watching the Red Bulls play. Both can have the tendency to feel like self-inflicted torture. You wonder why you do it at all. But when it’s over, you can’t wait to do it again. To New England we go, then." - Andrew Keh

"In the Church they say that suffering is good for the soul. I like to view my love for this team as being a spiritual exercise." - Steve B2

Yeah, I guess you are right. Even more people laugh at the Bimbos in Philly.

If the Fellas from Detriot can make 5+ games a season then you can surely make 10+ games from Philly

Very true. I hate Philly and could never, ever support that crap club.

Just sad that I won't be at El Pastor for every home game. Not fun to drink all night, then have to drive home 2 hours. But if Jen can do it, so can I. Same with the guys from Detroit. On the bright side I have more incentive now to do some fun away trips. Obviously, I'll meet you guys in the parking lot for the Philly game. I've done DC a few times but it's time to man up and do a Toronto or Montreal with you guys.

Please keep me in the loop. I'll very much miss not living in the area for the forseeable future.

I can't wait to hang up my Super Bowl stuff in my new office through!!

Are you gonna become an eagles, flyers, phillies, 76ers fan? Probably not.

Dont be a pussy. Man up and make the drive.

Gmoney, you're now in the same boat as i am. even though i had to move to NOLA for a job, i will always be ESC and a metrostar/red bull ny supporter. to get my in person soccer fix in where i can sincerely root for the home team, i've been going to see the PDL New Orleans Jesters. No supporters club but its better than nothing. You'll be all right.
You're a fucking monkey.

It seems Philly fans have signed up on metrofanatic to vote for themselves (in 'What team do you hate more?') . No real fan of this team would vote anything other than DC.

Is this before or after repping DC. I don't GMoney would want to do that.

I think the Philly fans are still ripping their hair out over the LeToux trade, less laughter down there and more vitriol against Nowak, Sakiewicz and co.

RIP Guillermo Romulo, Alexander Francis Orig and Celenio Eleazar.

 

I don't care about NYCFC or the Cosmos.  I only care about Metro.  So MOTHERFUCK those two teams.
