In terms how excited you are to tune into the games, where would you rank this season's squad so far? I'm talking about overall interest, not win/loss record.

To me it's got to be the worst I can remember as a fan.

Looking back at some of the teams from yesteryear, you could count on players like Henry, Cahill (before he turned into an asshole), Luyindula, JPA, Sam, Grella, Robles, BWP, Miazga, Adams, Kljestan, Adams, Olave, Lawrence, old Long, etc. to do something special offensively or defensively most games.

This year it seems like Royer and Kaku are the only skill players close to the aforementioned group but they are less exciting. And the rest of team does nothing for me in terms of interest. I'm hoping Yearwood and Tetteh do well, but they don't seem like world beaters, so I don't see much changing.

Not since I've been a fan, no.  Went from the end of JPA, to Henry, to Marsch.  This current stuff is awful.

Look at tape from 1999 and 2009. This team is a joy to watch compared to those teams

Most recently, 2009 is the easy answer.

2009 was way worse, the only bright spot of that year was knowing it was the last year at giants stadium and having RBA to look forward to.

Followed casually before, but became a "Fan" in 2010. 

 

This is easily the least exciting Red Bulls team I've seen. It's hard to watch...

I'll watch this team over 2009's team 8 days out of the week, Angel or not.

I love Angel but that year was putrid and don't forget they lost to W Connection Football Club in champions league.

Hell that team had 21 points in 30 games that year, we already have 10 points in 6 games this year and they also only had 5 wins all year, we are already at 3 wins in 6 games. 09 was an absolute disaster.

In the Red Bull Arena era of teams, absolutely hands down. It's not even possible to debate it at this point.

Seeing all the '09 replies here I feel lucky to have only started following the team in 2010, but this team is by a wide margin the least entertaining we've had since then.

The 5-0 win v. Toronto to close out the season was one of the funniest games I've ever watched.
