New York Red Bulls putting shoe on other foot

The New York Red Bulls have dominated the news waves this year. Their enigmatic antics have established them as somewhere between the worst team in MLS and the beast team in the East. Somewhere in between. As I write, they sit first in the East, with potential to move down when the weekend is all […]

New York City FC: MLS united New York City by dividing it

MLS has been making a point to establish rivalries with their recent expansions. No expansion exemplifies that more than New York City FC. Ever since the inception of the league, New York has had a major part to play. Although, to be fair, it had always been a case like in the NFL, where the […]

New York Red Bulls: Do not call it a relapse

I mentioned after the Orlando City draw that the Red Bulls had suffered a serious step back from the progress they had made. After scoring seven goals in two games against Orlando and Dallas, the Jersey-dwellers returned to their road woes against Orlando and managed only five shots. It’s like the creative well ran dry […]

New York Red Bulls take two steps back against Orlando

The New York Red Bulls had just turned a corner. Their sputtering, misfiring offense came together to notch seven goals in two matches against Orlando City and the dreaded FC Dallas. Their entire front four was clicking at long last and they looked ready to turn their season around. Match up against Orlando yet again, […]

New York Red Bulls success being personally seen to by Sacha Kljestan

It was the biggest test of the New York Red Bulls’ season. They were facing the best team in the West (at least according to points), FC Dallas. Dallas had shown a penchant for the implosion, but the Red Bulls have shown a penchant for just losing. They conclusively beat a Kaka-less Orlando City by […]

New York Red Bulls mental victory quite impressive

The New York Red Bulls had a first class, one-way ticket to misery. They were in the middle of their own nightmare. Nothing was working out. All of the stars that this team was built on had suddenly become frantic, nervy rookies that shouldn’t kick a beach ball into an ocean. The Red Bulls had […]

New York Red Bulls must turn attention to Sacha Kljestan

A lot has been said about how the New York Red Bulls have been sputtering as a result of Bradley Wright-Phillips’ downfall. Yet, maybe the fault falls on the team as a whole for not using the temporary shortcomings of one star man to put the burden on another star man’s shoulders. Or maybe that […]

New York Red Bulls only remaining sinking ship in MLS

MLS has this wonderful quality where anything can happen. There is such a degree of competitive balance that any team can rebound from a down year and mount a comeback. This year is going down that path. The first four teams to tank were four of the strongest teams in MLS last year: Portland, Columbus, […]

New York Red Bulls: Bradley Wright-Phillips will be just fine

The major theme of this MLS season has to be the unpredictability. Granted, given the nature of the league, there is always going to be a degree of competitive balance. That’s the idea after all. But to think that Seattle Sounders, Columbus Crew, Portland Timbers and New York Red Bulls occupy the bottom four spots […]
