Actually, we've got USMNT at Mexico before the EPL season begins. Stupid timing...going to get embarrassed, methinks.

A lot of new guys on the roster for us tomorrow. Not sure why Mexico would play this game and let them get such valuable experience at azteca right before qualifying resumes. Money talks heh.

I have no issue with players gaining experience...but I don't like to sit through games where it is the AMERICAN players gaining experience

Responding to your post from last night, if thats the case, I'll be quite pleased. I've grown tired of supporting a team that plays in my state yet all they do is practice in New York and say all this crap about New York and never even acknowledge us...

I must have missed something because who teh **** is Chris heck and why was he fired lol

Uh, the team practices in Montclair, not New York. And the team will continue to be marketed as a New York team, just probably in a different angle.

And I don't know how you can be a Red Bull fan and not have heard several rants on Heck.

When I meant practices I meant public ones that they always advertise will be somewhere in New York city and crap like that.

Probably because I don't pay attention to long ass rants usually

They held one or two open practices at RBA this season. None in New York. And all the Montclair practices are technically open.

Too lazy to fake quote the last post from the previous thread. I'm sure I do know the story and picture, but off the top of my head I don't know what you're referring to. So I want to see what story this is that I already know.

And I never had any free tickets, so I'm not at fault either.

Meh. I'm cautiously optimistic. Enough new people on the team that may really be gunning for more serious consideration for the WC team. Or maybe there will just be some great chemistry between some of the guys in the lineup. Who knows. I haven't looked. Is Rafa playing for Mexico? If so, we got this.

As was stated already, they practice in NJ. A lot of promo events are held in New York, but that's because there's spending power in New York, there is greater exposure in New York, and they're not exactly being supported at an overwhelming rate in NJ to say its worth their time to focus all of their efforts here.

This is true. I graduated from MSU two years ago and have a handful of friends who were there/are still there long after I've left. Many of them have told me about just walking by and watching the Red Bulls practices, or seeing the players somewhere on campus (sometimes in the Rec Center for whatever reason). The field they use is right next to a parking deck which is open to the public (not free of course) because it is intended for both students and those using the NJ Transit station right there. Anyone could theoretically go watch any practice they have. I don't know how "open" they intend to be, and I don't know if any players will even acknowledge any fans there waiting for anything, but its not exactly a closed off place.

hahaha after reading some of the previous responses to me quite possibly supporting the 2nd NY team, I think I gotta do it, especially because I was never a fan of Red Bull taking over the team. People get sooo mad hahaha

Who wants to root for a big spending team that chokes every year, really the Rangers of the MLS...

And Rafa is not playing for Mexico. Gaudette (Puerto Rico), Linpere (Estonia) and Miller (Costa Rica) are the lone 3 Red Bulls playing in international games tomorrow.

Correct. No excuse to lose that game. Undefeated at home and Portland may be playing the worst soccer of anyone in the league.

We're at the point where we need points in almost every game if we want any shot at the supporters shield and catching San Jose.
