Operating income numbers
Depends on why they're losing money. For example, I'm not too worried about RBNY because all their money is basically going into the academy. So they'll recoup it in big chunks as players get sold off (when Adams is moved from Leipzig in a few years they're going to make an absolute killing given the deal they made). Plus they own their own stadium, so they can just sell the naming rights at any point if they feel the need for some more income.
I'm willing to bet there is a decent amount of fudging going on in those records anyway. It's the same way half the NBA teams were losing money before the lockout in 2011.
Oh absolutely. There's a union negotiation coming up, you think they're going to go "Yeah, we're all swimming in cash"?
Worse than Trapp? Worse than Lovitz? Nah. Some MLS players are valuable, but having 75% of the roster being domestic players, a lot of which aren't good enough is a disaster. And that doesn't even get into the nightmare that is Berhalter's "system".
I mean Canada was starting at least one USL player against us last game lol, so yeah, worse than Trapp and Lovitz.
You need to specifically condition for a sustained high press. Part of why the RB teams are successful is that they can take it to a level that other teams just can't and then sustain that level over the course of a whole game (or even kick it up a notch).
hate to see it
