Kandji controlled the ball on his chest, step on it, look, see if someone was in the stands, take a coffee, turn, call his family, no one was answering, left a message, and then though oh, I might cross the ball. He crossed it and they scored. You can’t win a game of football when you play like that. I’m not attacking anyone, but that was the fact.

Quote of the year from Thierry Henry on the team's poor marking of Macouba Kandji last week.

Luis Robles is a Red Bull!

Robles is definitely a better goalkeeper than Jeremy Vuolo and Bill Gaudette. This move is another cog in the push for MLS Cup 2012 but I don't like this signing for Ryan Meara. Before his injury, Meara was a leading candidate for Rookie of the Year. Now he hasn't played for a month and likely won't start in front of Robles even when he's healthy. Instead of shoring up the fullback positions, the team signed a stronger goalkeeper. This could be our year..

How Hans Backe Can Beat the Houston Dynamo

The Soccer Observer looks at the tactics Hans Backe can deploy to beat the Dynamo Friday.

It was a tough game. It was a tough start for us. They are tough to play here but we cannot give them an early mistake to score a goal. But we play them next week, so hopefully we can come back and get first place next week at home.

Watch the Tim Cahill Presser at 1

Can you believe we went six whole posts only mentioning Tim Cahill in a cursory manner? Me neither! But there comes a time when all streaks must come to an end and it comes with Cahill's first presser as a Red Bull at 1 p.m. You can watch it using the link above.

We didn’t show up the first five minutes of the second half. You concede two goals on the road and you lose the game. Overall, it’s three terrible mistakes. You can’t concede goals like this. You lose games and it’s very disappointing.

So Nowak is a Psychopath

In case you haven't heard, former Philadelphia Union coach Pitor Nowak sued the team for wrongful termination and unpaid severance money. Jonathan Tannenwald at Philly.com did some crack reporting and came up with the letter outlining why Nowak was fired. It's excerpted in the linked post at Business Insider. Suffice it to say, it's pretty damming. You think Sebastien Le Toux is happy to be on the other side of the turnpike, or what?

Boomer and Carton Don Red Bulls Scarves

Because MSG's video embedding doesn't work... Apparently, the team warranted a brief mention from the only radio show in New York where the hosts can pronounce their own names. Alas, there's no video. In lieu of actual soccer talk, here's a video of their interview with Bert Blyleven, who, for the non-baseball fans, had a ridiculous, ridiculous curveball back in the day.

"I needed to do something. I was pretty useless because of injuries, obviously not delivering. So...

"I needed to do something. I was pretty useless because of injuries, obviously not delivering. So I’m happy to do something today.’’
