New York Red Bulls and MLS Thread

67 posts in this topic

Tonight's the season and home opener for the Red Bulls.

They are playing the Columbus Crew (1-0) tonight at 7:30pm. The game is on the Fox Soccer Channel.

This is my first year with full season tickets so I'm hoping for a loud crowd tonight and a nice win.

If your going to the game be sure to get there a little early since the Nets are playing at the same time as well.

Lets go Red Bulls!!!

Go Galaxy! They got crushed 4-0 by Colorado in the first game, but rebounded to win the second game 2-0 over San Jose. Beckham had his first goal in that win, set up by Donovan, then he set up Donovan for the other goal.

I'm thinking about heading to the 7/19 game when they play the Red Bulls.

Once the galaxy signed Beckham they lost my respect. Beckham isnt even the best player on that team, and he still is grossly overpaid.

The attendance has gone up since Beckham arrived. The Galaxy season ticket more than double their price i believe. Its good for the MLS, but I like the Premier League much more. A few european leagues want to have a few games here, ill be at the stadium in 5 seconds if Liverpool, Chelsea or Milan come. If they do that the MLS might die out, so im not sure what will happen.

Red Bulls played a fantastic game tonight. They won 2-0 and scored in less than a minute of the game starting. The defense looked solid and the offense had plenty of good scoring chances. Conway wasn't tested that much but he looked strong in goal as well.

Tonight was a nice break from hockey.

If Becks and Landon get it together with Ruiz - they will be a fun team to watch.

Not a very good game from New York yesterday.. sure they started well but honestly, Columbus was just caught sleeping.. Other than the first 15-20 minutes, it was ALL Columbus.. Too bad nobody can hit the net on their team lol.. I think they only got like 2 shots on Conway.

GO RED BULLS!

On a site note, i cant believe Angel didn't score on that penalty.. although his slow movement towards the ball made it obvious where he was going.

I wish FIFA would rule out the 'stutter' penalty - - it makes no sense and looks ridiculous .

Anyone know why Altidore didn't play? He was a reserve on the bench but when Osario took out Echeverry, he put in Wolyniec.. Is it to "get used to" the absence of Altidore b/c he is going to a Euro club?

I still think he needs to develop more with another 1-2 years in MLS..

I agree but we all know there is a ton of $$$$$ overseas plus the leagues over there is where everyone wants to playl so I wouldn't blame him if we wants to go. Since I love the Red Bulls though I hope he never leaves.

A smart euro team will have no problem throwing money at a player who might become good in 1-2 years. Just the question is who. Recently 2 or 3 ncaa players have gained some interest from the euro league. I forgot the other one or two but a junior at Seton Hall was one of them, he averaged over a point a game in a difficult conference.

He didn't even have a good year last year.. 7 goals..? how is that any special? Dont get me wrong hes only 17 (which makes it great) but i think its a tad too early to jump the gun with him.. if he were to play next year in Europe he would struggle.. still needs development hes too young; hes no wayne rooney
