Red Bulls, short on intangibles, condemned to same fate again

Alex Muyl, Josh Sims and Chris Armas trudge off CenturyLink Field following the 4-2 loss to Seattle. | Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Trapped in a seemingly inescapable cycle, the 2019 New York Red Bulls are lost. Sunday night at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, for the third time this season, the New York Red Bulls lost a road match 4-2, folding in meek fashion after a pair of goals that offered rations of resolve. That’s what this 2019 campaign has been: rations of former glory. After a Roaring Twenties-type of season in 2018, this year has been one long Depression, with an inspiring...

Sean Davis walks back to midfield morosely after conceding an own goal. | Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Sean Davis tried to stop a cross, but instead scored into his own net. It was that kind of night. This season has been filled with highs and lows for the Red Bulls, and Sunday continued the theme, as Sean Davis accidentally put the ball into his own net late in the second half, sending a dagger into the positive spirit that was building at CenturyLink Field. The Red Bulls fell to the rave green Sounders by a final of four goals to two, and the result was excruciatingly painful given...

Cris Armas and company are hoping to right the ship in Seattle and Portland these next five days. | Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports New York begins its two-match road trip in the Pacific Northwest this Sunday. While several players spent time with their national teams, a smaller Red Bulls roster put together a productive week of training before a big finish that begins this Sunday in Seattle. “I think it’s been nice to have this little break, little time for us to recharge, work together on and off the field,” Sean Davis said. “We had a good day away from the field the other...

Three Questions: Red Bulls at Sounders

Three Questions: Red Bulls at Sounders

Dani Royer shields the ball from Cristian Roldan in the last meeting between these two in Seattle, a 3-1 win for the Sounders on Mar. 19, 2017. | Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports Mark from Sounder At Heart shares his insight ahead of Sunday. Once A Metro: Seattle boasts an attacking force of Nicolas Lodeiro, Jordan Morris, Cristian Roldan and Raul Ruidiaz. On paper, it’s devastating, but 46 goals scored isn’t a terrifying number. Is the good-but-not-great number just because players are constantly away with their national teams? Has this been as scary a front line as it looks on paper...

Was there ever faith in Chris Armas?

Was there ever faith in Chris Armas?

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Armas was set up to fail by Red Bull Global, and he’s on the verge. HARRISON, N.J. – A thought that some might brush aside as apologetic or even conspiratorially came into my head late Saturday night, after fan frustration toward New York Red Bulls second-year head coach Chris Armas boiled over with chants for his firing in a 2-0 loss to the lowly Colorado Rapids. Was this ever meant to succeed? Verdict of Armas aside, ask yourself how, in the 13 months that Armas has been New York’s manager, Red Bull Global showed any long-term support for the...

Red Bulls’ spiral continues with loss to Rapids

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports There were “Fire Armas” chants at Red Bull Arena after Jonathan Lewis’ brace for Colorado. HARRISON, N.J. – The Red Bulls knew they had to get points in this match, but they also knew what was coming: a Colorado Rapids side who wanted to give their new head coach, Robin Fraser, his first win. At Red Bull Arena, the Colorado Rapids did just that. They got two goals on the road, gave Fraser the victory and for North Brunswick, NJ native Tim Howard, a big win in his final match in his home state, as the Rapids defeated the New York Red Bulls two goals...

Tim Howard’s final match back home is backdrop to pivotal clash

Colorado Rapids The former MetroStars goalkeeper will make his last visit to Red Bull Arena as a professional on Saturday. The New York Red Bulls will look to get back on the positive side of results Saturday night when they face the Colorado Rapids, currently 11th place in the Western Conference. It’s a match they must win to avoid panic about their playoff position, considering the Rapids are by far the weakest of their remaining six opponents. Adding to that is the fact that Saturday will be the final match at Red Bull Arena for North Brunswick, N.J., native and former MetroStars...

Juan Agudelo has been with the New England Revolution six of the last seven years. | Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports His fairy tale beginning was never matched, but there’s still no end in sight for the former Red Bulls prodigy. FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Destiny is a word that could have aptly explained a young Colombian-American forward named Juan Agudelo at the start of the decade. There he was, the hometown kid from the neighborhood, the familiar face who kicked the ball around the block, the one who went by “Johnny,” stepping into the worldwide spotlight, rising above the ordinary...

WASHINGTON – There have been so many intense matches between these two sides, but this was one of the wildest of them all. On a humid midweek evening in the nation’s capital, the New York Red Bulls took home a two goals to one victory at Audi Field in a match with hard tackles, red cards and bad referee decisions.

New York Red Bulls The Red Bulls’ all-time leading goalscorer gets a history lesson on, well, his goals. HANOVER, N.J. – Bradley Wright-Phillips has scored a lot of goals in his MLS career, 117 in the regular season and playoffs to be exact. He has a dozen goals against D.C. United alone, all impactful, but none as memorable as his landmark 100th last July, when he gave the Red Bulls a lead they wouldn’t relinquish amid a summer downpour at Audi Field. He can be forgiven for overlooking a couple goals among the lot, but in the context of this week, with another trip to face D.C....
