What can one say about this decisive 3-0 victory? It was just total domination and a total dismantling of the purported best team in the Eastern conference. I mean, really. DCU has been doing it with smoke and mirrors for a while know and it's as if they've been really, truly found out.
An opening goal from Mr. Lloyd Sam and a brace from BWP would see us keep the 3 points at home, as well as the Atlantic Cup, but this really should have been an insane scoreline (like 5, 6, 7, 8 - Nil). I kid you not, the ease in which the Red Bulls recovered balls and slice through the DCU defense was unbelievable. That said, it was a monster performance from DCU keeper Hamid that kept this one from getting near "Mercy Rule" territory.
With this victory, the Red Bulls have shown that they might have the best team in the East AND that they're the "Gold Standard" in the East (not to mention that they're in the top spot in the latest MLS Power Rankings). Let's just keep taking care of business in the East and let's hope the best in the West get taken out in playoffs.

It was another great time. The tailgate, the south ward w/the massive support and our boys looking like a better version of Arsenal on the pitch (actual goals, not own goals ;) ). This is how it should be every single time at home.
Nest up is the Fire at home and another classic 6 pointer. We can only hope that all lessons have been learned after that mid-week collapse just outside the Windy City. Our team has to start picking up full points against crap teams if we're to have any chance at The Shield. Let's get it done RBNY!!!
