A much needed victory for our boys, with Thierry Henry and Lloyd Sam finding the back of the net. Philadelphia pulled one back late, through a penalty (committed by Sekagya - who saw Red on the play), and it was a very nervy 17 (or so) final minutes.

The New York Red Bulls should have entered Sunday night's home match against Portland Timbers full of confidence. After a disastrous, listless showing two weeks ago in Houston, they had bounced back with a 2-0 home victory sealed by a late Jan Gunnar Solli goal. Despite intense competition at the top of MLS' Eastern Conference, there's no team in the East (perhaps none in the league) that can match RBNY's roster, on paper at least.
