    In fairness, ours was one of the first to have leaked.

    Leak sure, but not official. I want to see some better shots, because for all we know it could looks way better on a person than it does in the leaks.

    <------- This kid right here got the new jersey as a Christmas present and really wants to actually receive the present he was given. His patience has been exhausted.

    It’s odd to me that the outgoing kits are not clearance priced.

    They will be once the new one comes out. Milking the full price as much as they can, I don't doubt.
    Please use "new kit" because the words you used are evil together :) Hope your son's gonna like the new kit!!

    You certainly are correct (and I'm sure the interviewer brought up his NT success when discussing JLew), but the substance of the quote is still valid and still gives insight into why his minutes were limited, much more than anything we've heard before. Claudio's motives for saying it probably were to save some face for the club/deflect heat away from Dome.

    I found the quote rather lame and unnecessary. It's no secret that I'm a fan of J-Lew but I'm a fan of pretty much everyone on the team and of ALL THE TIMES to critique him he waits until now to throw shade at him? I call bullshit. The man is shining, in spite of NYCFC, and this is the time to be critical?

    I see you Claudio...

    I think it has more to do with someone getting to ask the question and less about the timing.

    Let’s be serious - how many interviews has Claudio done in the last year?

    So that’s two Claudio interviews in 8 months?

    Sometimes I wonder if we’re just compiling a roster of players who don’t fit but maybe a handful of them turn out to be really good and we’re just throwing shit against the wall.

    The roster as it’s constructed now makes little sense. Especially for our stadium.

    Totally speculating, but maybe a backlog from the shutdown? Or of course, the club was slow submitting it.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if every preseason from here on out takes place overseas for this very reason.

    I know it’s not warm and pretty. But hold preseason in Manchester every season, like they did year 1. You get the best facilities. And if you can scrimmage with Man City it could be a huge boost to the team on many levels. Especially if Pep gives Dome a few notes ;)

    I hope Dome comes back in 2019 wearing a jardigan.

    The Manchester weather would be indoctrination hazing to get them acclimated to NYC March weather.
