This blurry, cargo-shorted gentleman striking a come at me, bro pose amid a crowd of soccer fans and police outside Yankee Stadium? He’s your mascot for a bunch of chest-puffery and general ass-showing before the Red Bulls and New York City FC played in the Bronx today.
Here is a non-comprehensive list of the things Mike Francesa exhibits serious confusion about during what should’ve been a short promo advertising tickets to an NYCFC-NY Red Bulls game: that NYCFC and the Red Bulls are in fact two separate teams; the correct pronunciation of international superstar David Villa’s name;…
The Pittsburgh Riverhounds are likely to lose their leading scorer for a long time, as Romeo Parkes earned an incredible red card by kicking the shit out of Red Bulls II player Karl Ouimette late in last night’s USL match.
Hell yeah, now this is more like it! While it was understandable if disappointing (and disappointing exactly because it was understandable) that Jordan Morris skipped out on the chance to take his talents to the Bundesliga and instead decided to start his pro career in MLS, we are not without hope that one brave…
Columbus got the scoring started rather early in today’s Eastern Conference final against the New York Red Bulls with this goal from Iraq national teamer Justin Meram a mere 10 seconds into the game. Kei Kamara and Ethan Finlay played it onto Meram, and he finished calmly.
Kinda hard to argue when Pirlo’s playing like this:
The third New York Derby takes place this evening, and it got wild in New Jersey beforehand. The AP’s Rob Harris was there as a brawl popped off out front of Bello’s Bar & Grill, right across the Passaic River from Red Bull Arena. One dude even started swinging with a sandwich board:
If the TV ratings for the USWNT’s obliteration of Japan in the 2015 Women’s World Cup final—it was the most-watched soccer game in U.S. history—stood for anything, it’s that Americans will support the sporting greatness of our own unreservedly. Unfortunately, the vultures in charge of the inferior soccer product MLS…
Sporting KC's season is over after Bradley Wright-Phillips scored in the 90th minute to put his New York Red Bulls into the MLS Eastern Conference semifinals.
It's really hard to say who comes off worse here. On the one hand, we've got New York Red Bulls defender Jamison Olave clearly grabbing a handful of Real Salt Lake forward Olmes Garcia's dick and balls. On the other hand, we've got Garcia shamelessly diving and trying to sell the idea that Olave literally shot him in…
Thierry Henry popped in a goal in the 45th minute Saturday to put the New York Red Bulls up 2-1 over the Columbus Crew, but he wasn't in the mood to celebrate.
You can use a lot of body parts to score a goal: your feet, your knees, your head, et cetera. You can also try using your dick, but it's not likely to turn out very well.
Wow. What a sporting night. Not every night brings us a historic accomplishment 17 years in the making, but that's exactly what we got in New Jersey last night. I'm talking, of course, about the New York Red Bulls clinching the MLS Supporters' Shield.
In a matchup rife with Supporters' Shield implications, RBNY's Tim Cahill got things going quickly. Historically quickly. From 20 yards out, just
seven eight seconds in.
Within the last couple of weeks, a number of MLS supporters' groups have received letters from their teams' front offices. Important letters. Letters threatening sanctions if the fans don't eliminate what's apparently a major issue in MLS: The ever-present "You Suck, Asshole" chants.
MLS has announced its 20th team: New York City FC, which will begin play in 2015, in a yet-to-be-determined stadium. It'll be owned by Manchester City, in partnership with the New York Yankees. It will be sponsored by oil and evil.
This goal came off a corner kick in the 88th minute to put the New York Red Bulls up 2-0 on the Montreal Impact.
On Sunday, the Red Bulls found a new way to lose a game. (I don't know if MLS keeps that record, but New York surely owns it.) In the 90th minute of a 1-1 match at San Jose, Red Bulls defender Roy Miller was whistled for a handball, and 2012 leading scorer Chris Wondolowski lined up for a penalty kick. Miller, who…
The weather had already shafted DC United. The higher seed, they lost homefield advantage when MLS switched the legs of their home-and-home with the Red Bulls because the New York area was still cleaning up after Hurricane Sandy. It wasn't fair, and United fans were pissed, but it's hard to see that there was any…
