We speak with Denis Hamlett, Draft Picks Brian White and Niko de Vera, and Jesse Marsch.
New Homegrowns! Kaku watch continues! The preseason schedule is set, and the draft is days away. Travis Clark of Top Drawer Soccer joins to give us the lowdown on Friday’s Superdraft. We review New York drafts from the past in our third segment.
The new year starts with a bang, with Kljestan traded to Orlando for two players, another homegrown signing, an Argentinean transfer held up, a new secondary jersey, a supporters group banned and the 2018 schedule! Kristian Dyer of MSG/Metro helps us make sense of it all.
New York will face Olimpia of Honduras in the CCL Round of Sixteen, and Portland in the MLS Opener. Joe and Mark dig into those opponents, and discuss how the league did the Red Bulls a favor with the schedule. With two members of RB2 promoted to the first squad, will the club reach outside the organization to fill roster holes?
