    We talked about this a while back - I think one of the arguments was that if they have limited production capacity, MLS jerseys may not be the highest priority item, especially considering the season start date and the broader appeal of other items.

    Good answer. I just chided the club for taking a whole month off, but I guess we can give ‘em a pass on account of ditching Wallace.

    This.

    My mom wanted to get my son a jersey for Christmas. So, I wrapped up a picture of the new jersey for him and said we’d biy it when it’s released.

    I think this is probably true. Have one more holiday season to move the old jersey before the discount.

    Both could be done. Retailers could discount the old and the new could be full price and each would have their own audience of buyers; somebody looking for a $30 jersey is not going to all of a sudden pony up for the $120-150 jersey if that’s not in their range - there’s a reason they waited all year rather than buying the old at full price 2-10 months earlier.

    I would actually put releasing Tmac over that.

    I know wallace’s salary was higher, but considering that Tmac was from NY and has somewhat of a cult following, releasing him took a bit more balls from the FO than releasing Wallace, who I haven’t seen one person anywhere want kept.

    Walking through Marrakech in Morocco this winter, 6 or 7 locals yelled out "NYCFC!" or "David Villa!" to me. Made me feel at home.

    You know, I'm not really worried about the quiet offseason, but goddamn it's been boring. Can't Reyna leak some dumb rumors just for our sake?

    Even a "we are working hard" nothing soundbite would be better than literally nothing regarding acquisitions. Yes it would be meaningless in and of itself, but would at least acknowledge fan sentiment. Sometimes I wonder if our FO has nerve endings.

    The entire business model is void of a concerted fan integration module. They operate like a private B2B company rather than a B2C. That may fly in despot/monarch countries, but it’s shortsighted in the rest of the consumer world, and especially in NYC where STH sales have plummeted and they’re tediously holding on to the last steadfast supporters

    Maybe we’re not the C in the B2C

    Who then would be the consumer if not the paying customer?

    I could be convinced of a number of conspiracies. But if you think the team is just part of a complex web of cost shenanigans, then the C would be Man City Supporters and Pep Guardiola.

    This is pathetic. I wouldn't post this even but we are starved for any hint of a rumor.
    Lucas Venuto.
    Plays for Vienna, not getting much time. His contract ends in the summer but interested in moving now. The article itself says a move to NYC is unlikely but nevertheless reports that there is interest. The machine translation is worse than usual: "The New York City FC has also attracted interest. However, it is unlikely that the club from the "Big Apple" after Ismail Tajouri committed a second violet - but it is not completely ruled out yet."

    Maybe one of our German speakers can tell us what the hell idiom that violet thing means.

    Can someone please post the off-season dates once more? When camp starts, when we leave for the Middle East, our first pre-season match, etc. I know the draft is on Friday so I’m assuming camp starts late next week?
