As a subplot, I could see Feilhaber scoring for LAFC and doing the functional equivalent of Clint Mathis tapping his watch, except to the opposing manager.Him vs. Bradley could be a deeply spicy El Traffico
NYRB lost Adams too (back spasms) but somehow are dominating the game and leading 2-0 late. The SS race is on.BWP is suspended for this one, which will make things very tough given their lack of quality alternatives at forward.
He was linked to West Ham as a Lanzini replacement and that's a decent comparison. A bit taller maybe faster, not as skilled or strong.Any MLS watchers have insights on Miguel Almiron? He is being linked with a move to Arsenal over the winter, perhaps to replace Aaron Ramsey.
I don’t know why TB keeps insisting Stan Kroenke doesn’t want to pay MLS players!Any MLS watchers have insights on Miguel Almiron? He is being linked with a move to Arsenal over the winter, perhaps to replace Aaron Ramsey.
Nothing's wrong with it, really, but it was the first soccer stadium built in MLS and it's a bit of an erector set that lacks the revenue-generating bells and whistles of most newer arenas. AFAIK it's also not in an ideal location, though it's not Foxborough-bad. It's not like RFK Stadium, which was literally falling apart.Not familiar with the background: what’s wrong with the current stadium?
This turned out to be a Very Bad Post.He signed a 3.5 year deal, which takes Rooney through his age 35 season (will turn 36 towards the end of the last year on this contract). Hmm...
WaPo had very recently reported that he would sign a 2.5 year deal for $13m and an undisclosed fee. This definitely doesn't seem like a slam-dunk move. It's not the big-money transfer I'd have made, but maybe he'll still score a bunch of goals.
Boca Juniors manager Guillermo Barros Schelotto is a rumored replacement. It's plausible, as GBS played for Columbus for a while and is known to like MLS. Someone who's won titles in Argentina won't want to go to the Colorado Rapids, but Atlanta is certainly not out of the question for that profile given what Atlanta has pulled off so far.
Stadium-building in NY is tough and MLS let in the second NY team without a sound strategy to get something done. They'll be stuck there for a good while, I'd think.Philly is currently getting drilled 3-1. It is so painful to watch soccer in Yankee Stadium. How does MLS let them keep playing on a U10 field?
Lost their coach midway through the season as well, but they just keep churning along. As (probably) the only RBNY fan on the board, it was a fantastic day for the Red teams, and miserable for the blues. Sincerely wish the Revs had a setup like RB; stadium, academy and vision.Congrats to NYRB on the Supporters Shield. They're just a really well-run organization that's been consistently successful without a huge salary outlay. Tonight, they started four academy alumni, one of whom scored the winning goal, and another key CB who they picked up off the scrap heap and developed with their USL team.
