RBNY vs Chicago Fire : Doused!

Wot a match mates! A massive, massive RBNY comeback win, after being 2-nil in-the-hole early, and a massive 3 points towards our Supporter's Shield challenge. The massive belief & resilience of "Jesse Marsch's Red Army" was on full display today

A soft penalty, then a David Accam ankle breaking goal run, and it seemed like the Red Bulls were well underway to losing to the worst team in the League. But giving up is something this team doesn't do well this season.

"El Mago" Grella with another Golazo!

In the 28th minute, a magic trough-ball from Sacha and BWP cut the deficit in half. Ten minutes later, Mike "El Mago" Grella continued his magic season with another golazo and it was even at 2 all.

The Red Bulls would score the third of their unanswered goals through a Sacha Klejstan penalty in the 71st (after Mr. Lloyd Sam was taken down in the box) and it was, once again, three points to the good.

I'll take the victory but the Red Bulls have to do a better job of defending against teams with lots of counterattacking speed. BWP and Grella showed their Goal scoring powers and Sacha showed the quality we know he has. Also, it was yet another great performance by Dax McCarty (who had a hand in two of our goals).

Shout-outs to Matt Miazga for another stellar performance (he really needs to be signed to a Young DP contract ASAP), Mr. Lloyd Sam (who joined the RBNY 20/20 club) and Felipe for this.

Another great time w/the Lads, who never gave up hope in this one. Never in doubt! ;) Now comes a massive mid-week test at that House of Horrors up in Chowdah Land. Let's 'av it again you Red Bulls! Hoping that Wednesday night will see us Marsching on again. Get In Lads!!!
