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.

But he has cool tattoos and is married to Posh. B )

I'll be honest, I used to follow the MLS a lot more (back when it was the NY/NJ Metrostars, I don't dig this NY Red Bull but play in NJ stuff), then I stopped for a bit, but Beckham coming over here got me back into it. He may not be the best, but it seems like he is raising awareness and putting people in the seats based on what I have been hearing about in the media. (I could be wrong, I never looked at attendance figures so please correct me if need be)

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.

Teams have come to play games at Giants stadium before. The MLS is still here. I like the Premier League as well but I don't enjoy it very much because I don't really have a team I can support and if I can't go to games I kinda lose interest. Everyone knows the MLS isn't anywhere close to the level of the EPL but you're not really suppose to compare the 2 anyway. The talent in the MLS gets better every year and the games are pretty entertaining.

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.

Ruiz is going to be out for awhile with an injury but I agree when he gets healthy they should be great 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 .

If you followed Mr angel in his Aston villa days I'm sure you wouldn't be surprised :P

In a game against Tottenham he skied a penalty about 15 feet over the bar,
(language isn't great on this clip :P)

then moments later

If i remember correctly he had a few more like that in his time.

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?

Your guess is as good as mine. I do believe he will stay this season but after this year I believe he will go.

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.
