A month after being called out by master muppet Taylor Twellman on not being worth an MLS DP slot, Tim Cahill did it again and scored yet another game-winner for the Red Bulls in a 1-0 victory over the visiting LA Galaxy. Big time play from both Luis Robles and Jamison Olave kept the Red Bulls in this one and Cahill's 91st minute strike was enough to earn RBNY all three points.
Foxboro. It's a place that can strike fear in the heart of any Red Bulls/Metrostars fan. And not just because it's in the god-forsaken middle of nowhere. No, it's more about the New York MLS soccer franchise's remarkable ability to throw points away on the fake turf of Gillette Stadium - a place where they have not won a game since (gasp) 2002!
Thierry Henry is The King! He's a magician and the best player that our League has ever had (sorry Becks). What else can be said? His two goals were enough to win this game and the second of those two goals was certainly worth the price of an RBNY season ticket. The great Dan Dickinson has a fantastic match report, with the Good & the Bad and some great quotes from the players after the game.
After a two-game homestand that saw the New York Red Bulls split contests with Sporting Kansas City and the New England Revolution, it's back on the road. This time, RBNY will make its second trip of the year north of the border, visiting Toronto FC at BMO Field. Over the past few seasons, the Red Bulls have had Toronto's number, beating them handily in Harrison and getting generally respectable results in Ontario as well.
On a day that will be remembered for MLS Supporters Unity, the New York Red Bulls routed the New England Revolution by a 4-1 margin. The day began with a unified contingent of RBNY and Rev Supporters marching to The Cathedral of Football in a show of solidarity with the city of Boston, the recent scene of a despicable terrorist attack that left several dead and scores injured.

Like Willie Nelson, the Red Bulls can't wait to get back on the road again. OK maybe not, considering their general futility away from Red Bull Arena in recent times.
On the strength of a Dax McCarty early 2nd half goal, and a Thierry Henry late 2nd half golazo, the New York Red Bulls once again put the Philadelphia Union to the sword @The Cathedral of Football.
A scoreless first half, full of ridiculous missed chances (Peguy, I'm looking at you), was forgotten rather quickly, as the Red Bulls took the lead through their demunitive redheaded midfield maestro.

First off, an update on the SUB WATCH predictor contest. While I knew it would be incredibly popular, I had no idea that it would garner TWO entries!
Hello there RBNY fans! Happy Holidays to you all! It's the first day of Passover and, I'm told, we're right in the midst of Lent as well (with Easter right around the corner). Regarding that other "Religion" that is "The Beautiful Game", the US Men's National Team (coming off the now legendary Snow Bowl that took place last week) will take on a desperate Mexican National Team at the aways imposing Azteca.

Following a home opener that saw the New York Red Bulls dominate proceedings but emerge with just a single point for their efforts, Mike Petke's men go back on the road again to face the red-hot Montreal Impact, who boast a perfect record through three games.
And we're back! The season opener here at last and a chance to stick an early season dagger into the DC scum. Unfortunately, it was not to be as the NY Red Bulls and DC United played to a dissapointing (to Red Bulls fans) 0-0 draw on a cold, wintry day @The Cathedral of Football.
The pre-game festivities (motor cross, skydivers and fireworks) were, as usual, top-notch, but the botched National Anthem proved to be a harbinger of thing to come.

Two games. One Point. Six Subs. From the SUB WATCH perspective, that's the season in a nutshell. Hmm... Almost feels like I'm forgetting some interesting developments.
|Hey Guys - Now Would Be a Good Time to Show Up! |
It's been a while since we last posted a Red Bulls match preview. Forgive us for taking some time to get over the epic disappointment of 2012! Any of you who attended the final match against DC United or who were foolish enough to venture out to the Snow Bowl will understand the crushing disappointment that accompanied the end of the Erik Solér/Hans Backe era.
Good afternoon all! I hope that every Red Bulls fan has had a festive Holiday Season. Our team has gone through many changes since the latest of our usual season-ending debacles. Ten players got the axe right after that one and, in a way, Hans Backe got the axe as well (his contract wasn't renewed).
