6) What do you think the total combined Homegrown minutes are for 2019? Over/Under is 1,000

UNDER. LED BY JAMES SANDS WHO STARTS A HANDFUL OF GAMES ANS PLAYS 750 MINUTES FOR NYCFC. SCALLY RANDOMLY PLAYS A MIDWEEK GAME AND HAAK DOESNT SEE THE FIELD. SANDS GETS LOANED OUT AGAIN

7) Over/Under players to leave the Club this summer on a permanent transfer .5

OVER. I THINK A SPARE PART LEAVES THIS SUMMER. IT COULD BE MATA. IT COULD BE TAJOURI-SHRADI. IT COULD BE MEDINA.

8) Over/Under players to join the Club this summer on loan or permanent transfer 2.5

dummyrun dummyrun interesting final answer. Your other answers would indicate that must end up being a very good defensive unit.

Good shout on Rocha. I thought about him as well. The argument for him is that Tinnerholm misses a good deal of time and Rocha becomes your starting RB.

OK so I guess we have 2 threads doing basically the same thing this year. From Friday:

http://nycfcforums.com/index.php?threads/2019-predictions.6864/

I mean, I checked and last year you had started this more than 3 weeks earlier and you hadn't made any suggestion it was coming this year and you've been so grumpy and down on the club .....

Personally I kind of wouldn't mind (emphasis on kind of) if we have a bit of a lost season, maybe barely making the playoffs or maybe barely not making the playoffs, if it sparks the mothership to perhaps take our roster construction more seriously for next season.

How are y’all feeling about these guesses now? Lewis hasn’t started since the first match (where he got an assist), Medina gets tons of useless minutes with zero justification, our potential all-stars play out of position, Parks has been parked on the bench, backup Ofori is a starter, the best CB duo is a mess, and our new DP can’t exert his will on a game and reverts to one-v-three dribbling.

3pts/4 matches is no better than a 1W-0T-3L record which is fiery trash. Mathematically, the team could still hit 93pts on the year, but we’ll be lucky to even hit 10wins with how we’re playing and that’s a generous guess - I’d say closer to 8wins at best and somewhere in the low 30’s for points.
