Red Bulls Host Fire Friday, 8pm

Following a 20-day layover between league matches during the international break, the New York Red Bulls (7-6-3, 24 pts) host the Chicago Fire (4-6-7, 19 pts) on Friday at Red Bull Arena. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET with coverage on UniMas, Univision Deportes, and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.

New York Red Bulls Radio begins at 7 p.m. ET with Countdown to Kickoff, hosted by Matt Harmon and Steve Jolley. Ernesto Motta will carry the Spanish play-by-play, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Separated by five points in the East, the Red Bulls and the Fire face off for the second time this season and for the 59th time in league play. Despite falling to Chicago 1-0 in March, New York is unbeaten against the Fire in seven of the last nine matches (5-2-2) and have won three of the last four matches at Red Bull Arena.

New York has held serve at Red Bull Arena in league play with a 5-3-1 mark and unbeaten in the last three (2-0-1). Chicago, however, has struggled away from home, going winless in their first eight games (0-5-3).

The Red Bulls will be without Derrick Etienne, Jr. (Haiti), Kemar Lawrence (Jamaica), Aaron Long (USMNT) and Michael Amir Murillo (Panama) as all four players respective national teams advanced to the knockout stage of the 2019 Gold Cup. Long and the USMNT will play Murillo and the Panamanian National team in the final group stage match for first place of Group D on Wednesday.

New York hits the road for four of the next five matches, beginning with back-to-back road matches against Houston (July 3) and Atlanta United (July 7). The Red Bulls match against the Dynamo is slated to kick off at 9 p.m. EST with coverage on MSG+, MSG Go and New York Red Bulls Radio on TuneIn.

All-Time Series: Chicago leads, 28-18-12
At New York: Red Bulls lead, 13-12-3

Thanks for sharing this Larry. We belong to an ECNL club out of state and they do a very poor job of giving us a heads up about what is happening.

Heard Big K from Barca is handing out $100.00 bills to opposing coaches to see if he can buy his way into the Colorado Tournament. Those $100.00 bills are coming from the budgets of other age groups.

Any carded team can apply for USCS regionals.


Perhaps their 10th place finish in ECNL qualifies them.

GREAT CALL BOTN EXPERTS!!!


SUSA definitely fell apart and that was realy weird to see but they spread their players too thin. 2007s should have stayed in 2007 teams. Albertson is a good team and going to get better as they had a very good turnout at tryouts from other clubs. Clarkstown did what they do. They won a lot but I wonder what they'd be like without their main super star player. She is amazing.


The girl that scores off the kick-off? Last I heard she was staying.

It will never happen as long as politics and nepotism rule youth soccer. It is the same American soccer system from 20, 30, 40 years ago. The DA has done nothing to produce great players, not one.

Absolutely the league is too big, same with GDA. MLS clubs spend a substantial amount of money training these kids (plus travel and other costs). They can make a good bit of that back running camps and RDS programs, but it still is a $ and human capital drain. They also can't make much money off home growns when they actually have any, which doesn't happen often. New rules changes may help some with that, but face it most clubs aren't cranking out Christian Pulisics. MLS clubs would like to pull out of BDA for many reasons but one is they could simply slice the number of teams they're running and save a good deal of money.


They are already using a pay model. Look at RBNY. They have regional pre-academy teams that are pay-to-play. And with the U12 dismissal for next season, that's another AG. Next season it will be U13 gone.

To your point on Pulisic, I slightly disagree insofar as training compensation will be a big component going forward. if you look at the math, there's a poor ROI for 12-15 as that gets forced into Category IV, which for CONCACAF clubs is $2000 per year compensation. However, for 16 and up, the training compensation is based on what category the club falls into, and my guess is that MLS would be Category II (highest available in USA). That's a $40k/year.

So if you're an MLS club like RBNY, you can run pay-to-play clubs from ulittle to U13. At U14-15 DA you get to pick from the best and then run competitive U17 teams. Maybe you get a Tyler Adams and sign him to a first team contract. You season the best of those at U18/19 and maybe some go abroad at 18. You'll get back something like $128,000 in training comp if they sign a pro contract. And then if there's a transfer fee involved in any point in that player's career, you'll get 2.5% of that fee.

TL;DR: MLS will make money on ulittles, lose a little to cycle through U14-15, then make it up by having more recoupment options for U16 & up.

In the Showcase division, FC Albertson Fury:
U16/17 - Lost 5-1 & 6-1 in their first two games.

With this being the culmination of the season and Coach Caputo having left abruptly before these games, I wonder if Paul Riley made his way down to coach, supervise, and support his teams?


The absentee landlord is still absent. The self proclaimed futsal pro and the guy who coaches the younger girls are out there. Does that make you feel better about your $5k in training fees? I'm sure college coaches are talking to those two guys.


I’m sure at this point they are spinning it as it didn’t matter because they realize next year There will be one team and that one will be stronger because it will be a combination of Albertson and Fury
Players and families thrown Under the bus be damned.



Nope. That won't even be as strong as last year. Several starters have left the Fury team and the many of the Alby Fury girls will go play EDP. Many saw what was coming and just went to other clubs. Many will make up their mind after HS season.


Where are the alby girls playing edp? Did they stay with alby or go elsewhere?

Hopefully, they wouldn’t fall for the the poor reject used car and life insurance salesmen disguised as soccer coaches trying to lure them to come back. Those trainers should maybe switch jobs-, there is more financial upside trying to sell insurance and they now have the experience to do so!

Finding the land is probably the biggest barrier.


There's a reason few clubs have their own facilities or even fields - it's a huge investment. Without deep pockets or generous donations it's tough to come up with the funds to buy costly land and then to build. Take out a huge loan? It's a huge risk to owners and an asset of limited value to a bank; fields are just the value of land really. A larger club will need multiple fields, not just one or two. Most will need to rent out the space during the down times to bring in extra money, which then requires more management time. If you get lucky you can buy something already built that's for sale or long term lease when it comes available.

I find it humorous that this discussion started with a post noting how many non-MLS teams made the elimination round of the playoffs and you are talking about how big the league has gotten. Fact is that the Red Bulls were the DA powerhouse before NYCFC came along. Now NYCFC and Red Bulls usually get into the playoffs but the Red Bulls no longer have a monopoly on the local talent so they are no longer nearly as dominant nationwide. We have so much talent in the country but not enough coaching talent and soccer culture to translate it into international results. We also have a lot of local soccer talent with locals regularly getting into academy playoffs. Including Westchester, PDA, Cedar Stars and BWG. I am talking about the last 2-3 years.

I note that now only 1 MLS team remains in the U17 playoffs, with FC Dallas being eliminated today by another Dallas academy that is not MLS.

Hey my kid has a late year birthday. Starts, Doesn’t play down and is such a threat he is constantly being fouled yet yet when fouled by a big strong heavy kid he gets flipped head over heals. Have you seen the size of some of these teams? Especially NEFC?? Without puberty you can not out run these 185lb 6ft tall men. And when they catch you you’re eating turf.
