New York Red Bulls: Gregory Coupet to NY?

Don’t think about it too hard. Take it all with a grain of salt. The 35-year old French international recently signed a contract with Lyon until 2010. That would make him 37 if he were to come over on a free transfer. “It’s a desire Greg has”…meaning, at least it’s not forced on him by his American wife…(that was a reference to Sheva, not Coupet – who doesn’t have an American wife).

He has been with Lyon for over 10 years and is still considered the number one goalkeeper for France heading into this summer’s European Championship. We’ll monitor this, but I can’t see it happening…

One thing it would do is piss Jon Conway off. Let’s hope Conway plays well enough to warrant his starting spot…

  1. Hmm…don’t think this one’s worth it. Conway is serviceable at the very least. I suppose it’s not bad if he falls in their laps – and I mean zero effort – otherwise, not so much.

    Red Bull has so many other needs they on which they need to focus.

  2. And, of course, with all the domestic goalkeeping talent in MLS the last thing the Red Bulls should be doing is spending either money or a foreign player slot on Coupet. Which means this is exactly what will happen!

  3. Woot Woot! Yea a bit of Lyon in America!

  4. I had dinner and a few beers with him when he was on Holiday in St. Tropez last year. He definately wants to go to NY. He even told me he wanted to wear #23, the same as MJ.
