Great stadium, but the team is a basket case.

They need to fire Backe and just start over. Build the team from scratch. Look at Philadelphia starting with tons of young players that are promising. Red Bulls need to emulate that..

I fear Henry is going to force a move over the summer if they don't shape up.
Hooray!

At least Cooper's goal was class.

They will get better. And Henry isn't going anywhere. Marquez was suspended and he's actually a pretty good engine in the rear of the midfield. Conde was also not ready to play yet and has the potential to be great in defense. And there's the whole Luke Rogers visa issue - once that is sorted and he can start alongside Henry (or also Cooper or Agudelo in a front three), the attack will be scary.

Oh, and don't hold Philly as any kind of good example. They dumped Le Toux and Mapp, and weren't able to convince Mondragon to stay. Those promising young players are going to be watching most of the east from down in the basement.

Rogers is crap? Why does he have some kind of'fear factor' in this league? He was what, a League Two guy in england right? Couldn't do shiz over there, and now he's someone to watch from over here because he speaks like a 'bloody wanker' ?

MetroStars wont do anything this year

NY performed better with Rodgers last season than without (9 goals in 23 games, not bad), so that would be strong evidence that he's somebody who will improve the team if his visa gets sorted - regardless of whatever douchy accent he has or where he was stuck playing prior to NY.


The young soccer careers of Rubio Rubin and Brady Scott are headed in completely opposite directions.
