"The plus side of watching this team for so long is that nothing remotely surprises me anymore. Henry could have taken his shorts off and cocksmacked someone to earn a red, and all I would have said is "That's so Metro." - Regulator

"In between soccer games this weekend, I played 36 holes of golf with my dad. Playing golf, I realized, is a bit like watching the Red Bulls play. Both can have the tendency to feel like self-inflicted torture. You wonder why you do it at all. But when it’s over, you can’t wait to do it again. To New England we go, then." - Andrew Keh

"In the Church they say that suffering is good for the soul. I like to view my love for this team as being a spiritual exercise." - Steve B2

I just hope the RBNY doesn't get cocky. They need to play with the same intensity they showed tonight. They need to fight from the first second of the first half to the last second of second half stoppage.

This is the beginning of a pretty easy stretch for us. Until May, the toughest team we have to play is San Jose. Would be pretty nice to go undefeated, or close to it, until then.

Don't expect the same amount of space that Colorado gave up. Marsch is building his team in the Houston mold - solid, compact, unspectacular. And they'll be pretty good on free kicks if they get enough of the ball to win one or two.

Also, Braun and Nyassi have a history of always giving RBNY trouble. This could be a high scoring game.

Both got hat-tricks against us last year, right?

I really hope Hans trots out the same lineup, even if Tainio is healthy. Dax may not be the passer or tackler that Teemu is, but his work rate, the way he moves into space and shows for the ball, is a real plus that people don't seem to appreciate. (I'm sure I'm in the minority on this one.)

Meara, Miller, Conde, Keel, Solli, Ballouchy, Marquez, McCarty, Richards, Henry, Cooper.

Holgersson still scares me to death, Lindpere looks exhausted/injured, and McCarty played well enough today to stay in the lineup. Also, I wouldn't be opposed to seeing Lade or some other youngsters get time in this game, given that it is an expansion team that has not been playing well.

I wouldn't muck with it, but if this is the team until Ireland gets here and replaces McCarty i'd consider trying Tainio at RB, where he played in EPL. Solli spoiled some chances today, and I think he'll get back to form, but maybe Teemu could do with a shot.

Agree. Same lineup. Don't love Dax but keep him over Tainio even if he's healthy. I think Daxs work rate is a plus paired with Marquez. He needs to do better with his passing.

I hope the team goes out there with killer instinct to make a statement.

This is the first eastern conference team we're facing this year isn't it?

The east is on an entirely different wavelength than the west, one we might be succesful in. We can kick the easts ass this year!

I'm suddenly feeling more confident about this season. We're in the east we have a chance. :cool:

Tainio has aged 20 years since he got here. If you thought Solli was slow at RB, Tainio would be infinite amounts of slowness

Montreal has some good pieces and is decent defensively, but is still lacking in midfield where RBNY has a significant advantage.

As long as the team doesn't get complacent, should be 2-2 heading into the game at Columbus.
