Backe connection... makes sense.

I think he's the backup option in case the Brazilian Stallion can't be worked out.

If Ireland signs with us, we should all chip in to get him a Burberry cap with an RBNY logo as a welcoming gift.

Signing him would be CHAV-ERRIFIC.

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.

"""This time, it's by Goal.com, whose sources "confirm" that RBNY "approached" the player."""

What are the chances the "RBNY" person who approached Ireland was Luke The Tank "approaching" him on the practice field and inviting him over to NYC for a pint? Rodgers: "Hoi, Steven, come and 'ave a game with us in New York and I'll shave me head, mate." :lol:

My DREAM lineup:


---------------Rodgers------------

Henry---------Ireland-----Richards

-------Marquez------Tainio--------

Miller----Conde--Holgersson--Solli

--------------Meara----------------

Super Subs: Lindpere, Agudelo, Cooper

At first glance our goalie situation looks very weak but with all that firepower in front of him maybe we can get by with Meara.

Fast up top and a very solid defense behind them. Man, I hope we geet Ireland or a player like him, maybe even a guy like Tomas Rosicky.

Rodgers is training with Villa so he might be talking to Ireland and telling him how great life is playing in MLS and NYC.

Both Tanio and Marquez are too slow and too erratic to be the lone man on the bottom of the diamond. So that formation wouldn't work. A 4-4-2 would be your best bet...

If Ireland was to be signed I assume he would be replacing tainio. He was great last year, but between injuries and his mounting age, I dont know how much longer he can do it for.
"I'm sure we won't hear much from [Philly] because of the quality of our fans, of how loud and how boisterous they are," Petke said. "They're probably going to drown them out. But I welcome it. I love it..."

who is the troll admin who keeps deleting posts????

I think if Ireland was signed it would just be to bring a number 10; He will replace people as they age. But remember, we lose a lot of people to outside events.
