you're on my ignore list because of that lol

The Russian General 02-10-2013 10:46 PM

Awwww :) the Arnaud hate is a bit too much honestly. Guy gives everything he has. All heart but no skill. And he's still our first MLS captain and the one who scored our first goal. I hope we show him some respect when he leaves, which I hope he does lol.

Oh man I got so excited. :(

Arnaud would be a solid right back lol. You don't need offense, and Arnauds best quality Is to run in to players like if they were stuffed bears. Unfortunately, RW/RM isn't for him. Sometimes his touch on the ball is as silk as Justin Braun's

I'm sure if his salary was 40 000 a year, and wasn't captain (therefore not guaranteed a spot in the starting XI every week) we all would love him on the team as a good guy in the locker room, and the kind of guy you would want to use as a 2nd half sub on road games when you got a lead and need to grind a win

FYI for reference here is the salary information for the end of last season:

Arnaud costs way too much damn money. That's a ridiculous amount of cap space being wasted on a player where on his best day is average.

The big problem for me is not that he's on the team, but that he's the captain. Once you're captain you're rarely benched (if ever), and if you're clearly not one of the better players on the team, it can really turn into a problem. it will be interesting to see how Shalilbaum utilizes him throughout the season, because i doubt he'll decide to take away his captaincy. It takes a coach with a lot of balls to either sit a captain or strip his armband completely. My feeling is that he'll be dealt sometime during the season, if not before.

But besides that issue, I'm super pumped for this season! I complained all season long about the depth at wing and the lack of creativity there, and i felt like the management team really came through in that regard. Hard to know how well we'll do, but it's going to be exciting!

Oh, I see what he has done now.

Good trolling.

Hey guys, do any of you know how Blake Smith is doing so far? It seems to me that we don't hear about him much.

With Tissot having a great game on Saturday, it made me think about Smith. Those two playing together in the left lane in a few season should be pretty special, at least offensively.

Remember that DP's only count for 350k against the cap.

On top of that teams only get 2 DP's, and have to pay a 250k "tax" to get the third one. money from that tax goes to all the other teams that don't have 3 DP's in the form of allocation money.

All that to say... Rafa Marquez was an unmitigated disaster for NY.

Here is the added salary numbers for each team, for those interested:

Team Total team payroll (guaranteed compensation)
New York Red Bulls $12.96 million
LA Galaxy $12.63 million
Toronto FC $8.25 million
Vancouver Whitecaps $4.37 million
D.C. United $4.19 million
Portland Timbers $4.16 million
Seattle Sounders $3.98 million
Philadelphia Union $3.62 million
Real Salt Lake $3.52 million
FC Dallas $3.45 million
Colorado Rapids $3.43 million
Columbus Crew $3.33 million
New England Revolution $3.26 million
Chicago Fire $3.23 million
Chivas USA $3.23 million
San Jose Earthquakes $3.21 million
Sporting Kansas City $3.12 million
Montreal Impact $3.03 million
Houston Dynamo $3.00 million

Montreal Impact (Third Kit) @ New City Gas [PRIVATE EVENT]

New Third Kit will be unveiled Wednesday. Excited to see what it's like. There were rumours saying it would be striped black and blue. Kind of like Inter's kit.

Here is a list of when all the new jerseys will be unveiled.
