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…
Michael Jones, a 25-year-old youth soccer coach, was fatally stabbed early Monday morning in Manhattan, police said. Jones was from Liverpool and worked for Major League Soccer's New York Red Bulls as a coach in the team's youth mentoring program.
New York Red Bulls suffered a painful 2-0 loss at home to Sporting KC last night in a match played with little fire in front of few fans. A few supporters showed up, however, and they brought a massive banner using the most tired expression about Kansas since "Bleeding." (Yes, Sporting KC plays in Kansas City, KS—not…
New York Red Bulls teammates Thierry Henry and Dax McCarty hooked up for a nice goal off an Henry corner kick in the Red Bulls 3-1 win over the Columbus Crew. Poor Crew goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum made a hell of an effort to stop it, but he came up short.
