NEW YORK RED BULLS

October 31, 2014
BIRTH OF A RIVALRY
Looking back at the memorable 1996 playoff series that set the tone for the Red Bulls-United derby

One of the fiercest rivalries in Major League Soccer has pit the Red Bulls against D.C. United. It wasn't until the very first MLS playoffs that the rivalry found its roots for what has become a major tussle between the two clubs.

ANOTHER BANNER DAY
A special tifo in the South Ward honors BWP

Fans in the South Ward honored Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips with this tifo before Thursday night's playoff game against Sporting Kansas City. They could have shown it after the match after he scored two goals, including the game-winner, in a 2-1 win.

TAKING THE FIFTH
In his 5th try, Robles wins his 1st playoff game

The fifth time turned out to be the charm for Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles.


October 30, 2014
AT LEAST ONE MORE GAME
Henry makes sure he and his teammates get another match at RBA this year

In what could have been Theirry Henry's last game in MLS and perhaps as a professional soccer player, the Red Bulls looked doomed to another early playoff exit. But a bit of magic in the 77th minute where he fed Bradley Wright-Phillips for the game's equalizer gives the Red Bulls captain at least two more matches in his MLS career.

SAVING THE BEST FOR LAST
Wright-Phillips' 90th-minute goal breaks Red Bulls winless home playoff streak to oust defending champs

The Red Bulls ended their home playoff misery in the most dramatic way on Thursday night. They found the right stuff. Well, actually, the Wright-Phillips stuff, as in Bradley Wright-Phillips.

THE WRIGHT STUFF IN THE PLAYOFFS
BWP comes through when he's needed the most

It is Bradley Wright-Phillips world, and we're all just living in it.

BREAKING WITH TRADITION
Petke: Red Bulls show 'resilience and guts' to snap home winless playoff streak

It looked for awhile like another season, another home playoff for the Red Bulls. But it was a resilient effort from this team, down 1-0 after a Dom Dwyer goal in the 53rd minute, as they didn't look discouraged en route to a pair of late goals to seal a 2-1 win.


October 30, 2014
THE KNOCKOUT PUNCH
Red Bulls rally eliminate defending MLS Cup champions Kansas City from playoffs, advance to semis

he Red Bulls ended their home playoff misery in the most dramatic way on Thursday night. Bradley Wright-Phillips headed home an Ambroise Oyongo left-wing cross in the 90th minute to rally the Red Bulls to a 2-1 comeback win over defending MLS Cup champion Sporting Kansas City.


October 30, 2014
PLAYOFF HEROES
26 players have stood out for Red Bulls

They haven't had very reasons to smile and rejoice in the playoffs, but the Red Bulls have had their share of heroes in the MLS playoffs.


October 30, 2014
PLAYOFF GOATS
15 Red Bulls players, coaches and game officials who have worn the horns after losses

We all like to play the blame game. It's never our fault. It's someone else's. That goes double in the post-season, especially when the Red Bulls/MetroStars have been involved.


October 29, 2014
CURSE OF THE RED BULLS
They haven't won a home playoff game since 2005 (0-5-2), when the team was known as the MetroStars

Incredible as it may sound, but it has been almost a decade since the Red Bulls won a Major League playoff game at home. That's right, almost a decade. The last time the franchise won a postseason game at home, the team was known as the MetroStars.


October 29, 2014
JUST SPECULATING
Petke says Henry could play two more years if he wants

Red Bulls head coach Mike Petke says that Thierry Henry has taken excellent care of his body and could play two more years -- if he wants.


October 29, 2014
BRIAN'S FAREWELL SONG
Long-time Red Bulls communications director Tsao will leave the team

During the ESPN presentation of the Red Bulls' 2-0 win over Sporting Kansas City Sunday, the broadcast team dropped the news that Brian Tsao was leaving the team. Not many in MLS can pull-off an announcement worthy of a national television audience but they don't know the power of Tsao.


October 28, 2014
TOPPING THE LIST
Wright-Phillips heads Castrol season index

Add another honor to Red Bulls forward Bradley Wright-Phillips list. It was announced Tuesday that he earned the 2014 Castrol Index Top Player distinction by accumulating 918 points, playing for 2,575 minutes.

'HE LOOKS GOOD'
Petke on Henry training after Achilles flare-up

There's hope that Thierry Henry will be ready for Thursday's playoff match at Sporting Kansas City, with the Achilles injuries that shelved him from Sunday's regular-season finale at Sporting Park.


October 28, 2014
A LOOK AHEAD INTO UNCERTAINTY
Red Bulls might be in the playoffs, but there are a lot of question marks for 2015

It may be playoff time for the Red Bulls, but a disappointing season already has many fans looking ahead to next year. It is an uncertain 2015 to say the least.


October 28, 2014
HOW PETKE WOULD DEFEND BWP
He would be physical, but he admits it would be difficult to stop the Red Bulls striker

For a good portion of his 13-year Major League Soccer career, Mike Petke had to defend against some of the best strikers the opposition had to offer. The Red Bulls head coach had to cover the likes of Roy Lassiter and Chris Wondolowski, who set the league record of 27 goals in a season. He did not have to mark Bradley Wright-Phillips, who tied the mark Sunday.


October 28, 2014
BWP LOOKING AHEAD
'The 27 goals, they almost don't matter any more'

What's done is done, say Bradley Wright-Phillips. One book is closed for the Red Bulls' record-tying goal-scorer and another one opens in two days. Tying the MLS season record of 27 goals was a nice accomplishment for Wright-Phillips, who now must focus on putting the ball into the back of the net in the playoffs.


October 27, 2014
ACHILLES 2, THIERRY 0
It was not one, but both Achilles that sidelined Henry

For most of his 4 1/2 year career with the Red Bulls, Thierry Henry has battled an Achilles problem. For the last week or so, both Achilles muscles gave the former French international some problems, so it was a no-brainer for head coach Mike Petke to not even bring his team captain to Kansas City for its regular-season finale.


October 27, 2014
DOWN, BUT NOT OUT
Vermes still thinks KC can do damage in the playoffs

His team might be down in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, but Sporting Kansas City head coach Peter Vermes' side is far from out.


October 26, 2014
EXPECTING A TOUGH ENCOUNTER
Petke feels Sporting will make life difficult in playoffs

Red Bulls' playoff placement, fate will be determined tonight

The Red Bulls' playoff placing is at stake when they visit Sporting Kansas City in the very last MLS match of the season Sunday night. They can finish in third, fourth or fifth in the Eastern Conference.


October 26, 2014
CRYING UNKEL
Savarese feels referees, league needs to do a better job when it comes to officiating

A questionable yellow card for Hunter Gorskie, a game called almost a minute earlier than expected and a red card for Marcos Senna after the final whistle when a melee ensued were on the laundry list that had Cosmos coach Giovanni Savarese fuming after a 2-2 draw.


October 24, 2014
HERE, THERE, ANYWHERE
Cahill just wants to play, wherever that is

If you're Tim Cahill, you just simply want to get on the field. The Red Bulls designated player hasn't seen much of that field in Major League Soccer lately, with international call-ups and a red-card suspension keeping him away.


October 24, 2014
GETTING CLOSER
Sekagya could be a possibility for Kansas City

Progress is being made by Ibrahim Sekagya as the Red Bulls center back looks to be getting healthy ahead of Sunday's match at Sporting Kansas City. It remains to be seen, however, if his fitness chase will be too little, too late.


October 24, 2014
PETKE'S SAY ON LADE LOAN
'If there was some sort of a handshake agreement, my hand never shook anybody's hand'

Connor Lade, formerly on loan with the Cosmos, is now back with the Red Bulls for good after the North American Soccer League side called an early end to his time with the club.


October 23, 2014

Connor Lade, who was recalled on loan from the Cosmos only a few days prior, connected for the equalizer to give the Red Bulls a 1-1 draw with the Montreal Impact in a CONCACAF Champions League game Wednesday night.


October 22, 2014
RECALLED IN TIME
Lade gives Red Bulls draw against Impact in lackluster affair

The Red Bulls and Montreal Impact played out their remaining CONCACAF Champions League fixture with no bearing on the competition. It was played as such.


October 21, 2014
THE LOAN IS OVER
Lade will remain with the Red Bulls, not return to Cosmos

Connor Lade’s return to the New York Red Bulls was supposed to be for the midweek CONCACAF Champions League match. Instead, it will last longer than that.


October 21, 2014
WAIT 'TIL THURSDAY
Sekagya will have a better idea about groin injury

A groin injury will keep Red Bulls central defender Ibrahim Sekagya out of Wednesday night's CONCACAF Champions League match against the Montreal Impact at Red Bull Arena, but his return to the field could be soon.


October 21, 2014
STILL SOMETHING TO PLAY FOR
Petke: CCL game 'great platform' for Bover, Christianson

October 21, 2014

A RATHER MOTLEY CREW
Lackluster Red Bulls could pay for home finale loss to Columbus in the MLS playoffs

By losing their home regular-season finale Sunday, the Red Bulls just have might have put hosting a wildcard playoff berth at Red Bull Arena in jeopardy. The Red Bulls came out stuck in neutral and truly never got their act together long enough to give the Columbus Crew much competition in what turned into a rather lackluster 3-1 home loss.


October 19, 2014
SIGNING OFF?
If this was Henry's RBA finale, his final act was signing soccer balls, not kicking them into the net

It certainly wasn't a signature performance, not by a long shot, not by one of the world's greatest soccer players. But if Thierry Henry is signing off as a Red Bull after this season, the former French international standout then finished it by putting his signature on a bunch of soccer balls instead of kicking them into the net.


October 19, 2014
CAUGHT FLAT FOOTED
If it was Henry's RBA finale, flat Red Bulls do not give him a proper send-off

In what may have been his final home game at Red Bull Arena, captain Thierry Henry received precious little support from his teammates in a stale 3-1 loss to the Columbus Crew. If it was indeed his sendoff from the hometown faithful, it was not the one that the most influential player in club's history deserved.


October 19, 2014
NOT GOING GAGA OVER A LOSS
But Sam doesn't plan to dump his Lady Gaga jacket

The streak is over. For weeks now, the Lady Gaga jacket that has hung in Lloyd Sam's locker at Red Bulls Arena has been a good-luck charm for the team. Bought for Sam by sporting director Andy Roxburgh (because Roxburgh thought that the ostentatiously attired Sam would like the style selection), the Red Bulls haven't lost with the jacket hanging in the locker.

A MOTLEY CREW
Red Bulls, thanks to a lackluster start, lose regular-season home finale to Columbus

October 19, 2014
A WIN WOULD HELP IN MANY WAYS
Red Bulls host Crew in regular-season home finale

It's as simple as this. The Red Bulls win against the Columbus Crew on Sunday and they avoid playing a wildcard match on the road.


October 19, 2014
ONE GOAL DOWN, ANOTHER LOOMS
Henry: we have to do everything better

Thierry Henry can be a man of many words, but sometimes he will let his actions do the talking. When asked about the Red Bulls clinching a playoff berth after training Friday, the team captain let out a big sigh of relief. "That's my reaction," he said.


October 18, 2014
HE'LL SIT THIS ONE OUT
Cahill to serve red card suspension vs. Crew
