A guide to the Qualification Stage of the 2018 CONCACAF Men’s U-20 Championship for New York Red Bulls fans

A guide to the Qualification Stage of the 2018 CONCACAF Men’s U-20 Championship for New York Red Bulls fans

Six teams left; four will qualify for the 2019 U-20 World Cup. The 2018 CONCACAF Men’s U-20 Championship crammed 80 games and 382 goals into its first 10 days. The pace should be a little less frantic from here: 34 teams have been whittled down to just six for the Qualification Stage of the tournament. The six groups of the Group Stage advanced just one team each to this phase of the competition. The group winners were exactly the teams predicted by the tournament’s seeding: every group was won by its top seed. This tournament has been short on upsets, though the long-term ambition...

Three Thoughts: New York Red Bulls trample Columbus Crew in second leg of 2018 MLS Eastern Conference Semifinal

RBNY is still alive in the 2018 MLS playoffs thanks to an emphatic win at Red Bull Arena over Columbus Crew. The New York Red Bulls are in the 2018 MLS Eastern Conference Final thanks to a 3-0 win over Columbus Crew. It was an important victory for many reasons, but foremost among those is that it means the best team in MLS history didn’t get tripped up by the very first hurdle it faced in the post-season. RBNY moves on to face the team most assumed would finish the 2018 regular season with the highest points total in MLS history, Atlanta United. Suggestions RBNY “stole” the...

New York Red Bulls player ratings: 3-0 vs Columbus Crew, 2018 MLS Eastern Conference Semifinal second leg

Let’s rate some players. The New York Red Bulls are marching into the 2018 MLS Eastern Conference Final thanks to a 3-0 win at home over Columbus Crew that gave RBNY a 3-1 aggregate win in the semifinal series. Seems like a perfect excuse to resurrect OaM’s Player Ratings. Luis Robles - 7.5: Columbus only needed one goal to make RBNY’s night very uncomfortable. And there were chances for the Crew to find the net. But Robles was equal to all of them, and the clean sheet was the platform for a win that didn’t feel entirely safe until Royer scored the Red Bulls’ third goal in the...

Bulls Abroad: Kemar Lawrence called to Jamaica squad for November CONCACAF Nations League qualifier

National team duty calls for Kemar Lawrence. Per Simon Preston’s Reggae Boyz Commentary YouTube channel and supported by Irie FM’s Dwight Fraser, Jamaica has announced a 22-man squad for its November 17 CONCACAF Nations League qualifier against Suriname. Perhaps the most surprising name on the roster is 33-year-old MLS veteran Jermaine Taylor, currently without a club but a player well known to Reggae Boyz head coach Theodore Whitmore. Among the less surprising selections is New York Red Bulls left back Kemar Lawrence. The squad also includes former NYRB II midfielder and three-time...

New York Red Bulls lineup prediction: vs Columbus Crew; 2018 Eastern Conference Semifinals, Leg 2

If Chris Armas has a surprise starting lineup planned, we’ll be surprised. Last week, shortly before kicking off the first leg of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series against Columbus Crew, the New York Red Bulls announced they’d be without Aurelien Collin for - most likely - the duration of their 2018 MLS playoffs. Collin is one of six players on RBNY’s injury list: Vincent Bezecourt, Kyle Duncan, Ben Mines, Tommy Redding, and Florian Valot are also banged up and expected to play no part in whatever remains of RBNY’s season. But for a team with a relatively long injury list...

Win-or-go-home time for RBNY. The New York Red Bulls are back home for what will be the last game of their 2018 season if they don’t beat Columbus Crew by sufficient margin to win their 2018 MLS Eastern Conference Semifinal series. On the bright side, “sufficient margin” is a win by two or more goals, and recently RBNY has been pretty good at winning by two or more goals at home. But we all know that this RBNY team at home has been something special... so these are the frequencies of outcomes at RBA during 2018.

A disappointing performance in the first leg has Red Bulls supporters hungry for offense Red Bull Arena will be home to another tightly contested, nail biting affair. The 1-0 loss in Columbus was a punch to the gut of many Red Bull supporters after winning the Supporters Shield on the final day. A second half goal by Gyasi Zardes was enough for the Crew to take the first leg. Unfortunately for the Red Bulls, the goal could have been completely avoided if not for multiple little mistakes. The goal came as a result of over shifting in the Red Bulls defense. Michael Murillo started the...
