RBNY vs DCU : We Marsch On!

We're through to the Eastern Conference Finals!!! A BWP goal at the death saw the New York Red Bulls knock DC United out of the playoffs for the second consecutive season with a 2-Nil two-leg aggregate.

It wasn't pretty. In fact, there were lots of errant passes and cheap giveaways. Yes, the Red Bulls had most of the possession but I kept waiting (pessimist that I am) for that one DC counter that would level the aggregate. It never came (thank the Soccer Gods) and we "Marsch On" to face the Columbus Crew for a place at MLS Cup.

A massive defensive effort, a massive moment of brilliance from Gonzalo Veron and a massive goal from Bradley Wright-Phillips (with a massive goal-call from Ernesto Motta). All we need now is a massive two-leg series vs Columbus and we host MLS Cup @The Cathedral of Football. Do I dare dream? Yes! There's no reason.... Ha, ha!
