Upheaval in New Jersey may add up to some regression for the Red Bulls
The New York Red Bulls, unfortunately, have been good for a few years now. Really good. They've gotten at least 50 points in each of the last five seasons, and in four of those five they topped 55 points. They ran into a problem last season in MVP voting because they had two players splitting ballots.
No one has had an offseason quite like Dax McCarty. The midfielder received a call-up to the U.S. Men's National Team January camp, got married and was unexpectedly traded by the New York Red Bulls to the Chicago Fire on Monday.
The whirlwind weekend, one which started with getting married and ended with his first training session in California with the USMNT, is something McCarty is still adjusting to.
The Union will enter the playoffs on a historic winless streak.
On Sunday evening, the Philadelphia Union officially became a playoff team for the first time since 2011. Despite the feat, boos filled the rapidly emptying stadium after the final whistle. Though the Union finally clinched a spot in the playoffs, they did so with a 2-0 loss to their I-95 rivals, the New York Red Bulls.
It's the last game of the regular season. If things go well, it won't be the last game of the year.
It's the last match of the regular season, and the Philadelphia Union host the New York Red Bulls. While that would normally light a fire in the bellies of the players and fans, this time it seems like more of an afterthought.
The Union didn't dominate the opening 15 minutes, NY just had the wrong approach. Philly was in control for a bit after going ahead, but Josh Yaro's injury gave the home side a chance to regroup and dominate.
Timbers won't admit it, but they want Seattle to pass them for the last playoff spot
Happy Labor Day everyone! While the Sounders took the weekend off, some of the teams around them did not even though Portland played Dallas as if they had. The loss in Portland still stings but with two in hand again on our rivals and only four points back, the playoffs are definitely in reach.
HARRISON, N.J. Bradley Wright-Phillips was antarctic cold at the start of the season. Now, he is as hot as any striker in MLS.
The New York Red Bulls picked up their latest win of the campaign on Sunday afternoon by edging the New England Revolution, 1-0, and once again it was Wright-Phillips who was largely responsible for the three points that were picked up.
HARRISON, N.J. One player is out for the season, another for about a month, andanother remains a question mark.
The New York Red Bulls are hurting in a big way right now.
Bradley Wright-Phillips, Damien Perrinelle, and Connor Lade all suffered injuries during the Red Bulls' 2-2 road draw with the LA Galaxy this past weekend, adding them to the club's list of walking wounded that already includes captain Dax McCarty and reserve centerback Gideon Baah.
BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. –When the New York Red Bulls went to thelocker room athalftime Sunday they had lost their captain to injury, were being outshot 4-0 and had just conceded two goals in 12 minutes,allowingan early lead disappear against the Chicago Fire.
New York will push up and their midfield will fly around but no, they don't have wings.
Energy drinks can pick you up and they usually do, but a crash always follows. New York started 1-6-0 before their Red Bull kicked in and oh my did it kick. Just three points in seven matches but then 16 points in the next seven going 5-1-1 in that stretch.

HARRISON, N.J. — This isn't the offense that the New York Red Bulls or their fans have become accustomed to seeing over recent seasons.
While the Red Bulls have managed to muster up opportunities in their opening five games of the 2016 MLS season, the team has just four goals to show for it, all of which came against the Houston Dynamo.
Dynamo fall after see-saw scoring battle against the New York Red Bulls.
The match up between the Houston Dynamo and the New York Red Bulls was a back and forth scoring battle that would eventually see the Red Bulls claim their first win of the season and the Dynamo their first loss of the season.
We're through to the Eastern Conference Finals!!! A BWP goal at the death saw the New York Red Bulls knock DC United out of the playoffs for the second consecutive season with a 2-Nil two-leg aggregate.
It wasn't pretty. In fact, there were lots of errant passes and cheap giveaways. Yes, the Red Bulls had most of the possession but I kept waiting (pessimist that I am) for that one DC counter that would level the aggregate.
Roland Alberg had an explosive middle of the season, but is there room for him on the roster next year?
Quick, name the top players in MLS in terms of goals scored per minute played. If you thought of Sebastian Giovinco, Bradley Wright-Phillips, David Villa, Frank Lampard, Ola Kamara and players like that, you were right.
