Kudos to NYCFC for not being some mega-foreign import team and hiring a well-respected foreign coach.

Big loss for RSL

First Reyna and now Kries, NYCFC is off to a good start. Now they need a part-time home which will likely be Yankee Stadium(it should be.)

I expect big things from them in year 1. But the fan boom may not come until their SSS is build around 2017-2018. The sooner that gets worked out and built the better for NYCFC.

The New York Derby is going to be special and will be a ratings driver.

I'm thrilled about this. Kreis is, IMO, the best American coach at the moment. But I don't think he's quite ready yet to take over the NT. He's still very young with a lot of room to grow, and he has some things he can still work. One is that his teams tend to disappoint in big games (not something you want from an NT coach). The other is that coaching a small-market team and getting them to punch above their weight, while requiring a great amount of managerial ability, is much different than coaching the NT. The likely situation at NYCFC-quality players (a couple of "stars," at least), bigger egos, more media scrutiny, higher expectations and pressure-will be much closer to and perfect preparation for the USNT job. Hopefully he succeeds in New York, proves he is up for the task, and takes over at some point in the future (not necessarily 2018, he has all the time in the world).

The interesting question is that now that Kreis is tied up and Porter is still way too young and inexperienced, who will take over the NT job this summer (assuming we crash out of the group stage and Klinsmann leaves by popular demand)? I don't see any other American coach being up to the task. I guess there's Yallop, but he's Canadian, which would be weird (not to mention he just got signed by the Fire), and I don't think Vermes is our guy. I have a feeling it'll be Schmid, in which case I'll contemplate suicide.

I really like this move for Kreis. We need the best coaches at the biggest clubs. Will be interesting to see who the NYCFC DPs will be.

Do you think Kreis will want NYCFC to acquire se of his RSL talent? I would not be surprised to see one of the bigger names on RSL follow him to NY.

I think in the scenario you are describing they'll bring in one of the Dutch guys to keep the ball rolling in the direction that has been laid out. Most national teams dont have a person of their nationality of the coach. We dont need an American coach, we need a coach who wants to play an attacking style that best fits our personnel

First priority for NYCFC and Kreis is getting one of the USMNT's stars i.e. Bradley, Altidore, or Howard.

I think Howard is the most likely.

Do you think there could be some sort of agreement with NYRB where NYCFC could rent out the stadium until their stadium is ready, sort of how the Giants and Jets do now? I understand wanting to have a team as close to NYC as possible, but the seating for games at Yankee Stadium would not be appealing what so ever....

For a team I plan on fully supporting, the only player I would take from RSL is Gil.

As far as the Kreis hire goes, I like it. Its not too flashy, not too risky.

Ive got the sense that NYCFC is trying to stake claim as the true NY team and will point out that NYRB are really NJRB. Them playing in New Jersey is counter intuitive of what they've been claiming

Totally understand...I'm just trying to sort out the seating..watching bowl games there has seemed very awkward and just away from the action. I'd love to see a SSS ASAP because playing at Yankee Stadium will not be fun imo. They are getting a stadium in Flushing correct?

I dont think Flushing is in the running anymore. After the interview that they announced Kreis hiring they said they have a piece of land in the Bronx that is vacant that they could put a 28,000 SSS in. They want the incoming mayor (whos name escapes me) to sign off on it before they try to go through the process to only have the mayors office or city council shoot it down.

I dont know how much of a good idea is this... Would have been better if they put it in flushing as it contains major hispanic population who mostly rank soccer over any other sport. I believe the Flushing Idea would def be getting filled and its easy to get access to it.

Flushing would have made the most sense to me, they've already got the infrastructure to deal with crowds because of the US Open...but this is also a great chance to boost revitalization, and with DeBlasio making income inequality his major platform that he was elected on, I wouldn't be surprised to see the stadium in an area "on the rebound".
