SKC vs RBNY : Starting Off With Abang

And we're back! The New York Red Bulls started their latest quest for that elusive MLS Cup with Abang (on the bench) and a massive point on the road, thanks to a 1-1 draw @Sporting KC.

A quite evenly matched game it was until the 50th minute when KC's Benny Feilhaber crossed to a wide open Ike Opara, who headed the ball past a hapless Luis Robles. Time for the Red Bulls new Center Back tandem to work on not getting caught so much out of position. The Red Bulls weren't down for very long, as the Lloyd Sam took it upon himself to curl in a wonder-equalizer just 4 minutes later.

The Red Bulls then found themselves with a bit of on-the-road luck. Dominc Dwyer, no doubt thinking about the party at his house after this one, missed a couple of sitters (one in the 59th minute is very difficult to believe - see the extended highlights above). The good guys then found themselves a man up, as Matt Besler was shown his 2nd yellow after a challenge on BWP. Alas, the Taurine Bunch could not take advantage of numerical superiority on the field and had to settle for a road point. I'll take it!

Please see the top of this post for our first drunken video of the season (with a special appearance by Seeing Red NY's Mark Fishkin).

A fantastic day out with the Lads (pictured above celebrating Mr. Lloyd Sam's golazo), fist at Catas then at the STH viewing party @The Cathedral of Football. Next weekend we're off and then it's DCU for the home opener on March 22nd. We're back! Let's 'ave it Lads and C'mon You Red Bulls!

The big viper is outta here!
