Deadline Day Extended; Red Bulls Notes

As clubs continue to work without a collective bargaining agreement, a number of unanswered questions hang over the upcoming MLS season, including the final 2010 salary cap number.  Accordingly, late this afternoon the league postponed today's roster compliance deadline to a date to be determined.  Let's hope there is some substance to the "discussions continue" part of the press release. 

Back in New York after their Disney tournament victory, Red Bulls players were given three days off to recuperate. The team will reconvene at Montclair State later in the week.  One more warm weather preseason trip may also be in the works before the visit of Santos on March 20.

RBNY fans were understandably worried when they witnessed Juan Pablo Angel limp off the pitch in Orlando, but according to the club Angel's injury - a lower leg strain - was less severe than was feared. 

Ex-Red Bull watch (a wee bit dated, but since it's a slow news day)...

A couple of players from last year's squad continue to seek their next opportunity.  Penn grad Danny Cepero speaks with the University of Pennsylvania Gazette about being cut by the Red Bulls and what's next for him.

Meanwhile fan favorite and "least hard working man in soccer" Khano Smith is back from a short stint in England's lower divisions and training with the New England Revolution.

Finally, on a happier note, Grant Wahl of Sports Illustrated has some very nice things to say about Red Bull Arena, and who are we to disagree?
