It's matchday in Red Bulls Land; the team is up in New England to take on the Revs this evening as they look to re-build momentum in a busy July schedule. A win would put New York top of the Eastern Conference, having (finally) played the same number of games as both Sporting KC and DC United.
No Thierry Henry for the Red Bulls means that Kenny Cooper starts alone up top, ahead of a five-man midfield that includes Connor Lade wide on the left -- I like it.
Red Bulls (4-5-1): Ryan Meara; Brandon Barklage, Stephen Keel, Wilman Conde, Roy Miller; Dane Richards, Dax McCarty, Mehdi Ballouchy, Joel Lindpere (c), Connor Lade; Kenny Cooper
Bench: Jeremy Vuolo, Jonathan Borrajo, Ryan Maduro, Victor Palsson, Tyler Ruthven, Jhonny Arteaga
Revs: Shuttleworth, Tierney, Soares, McCarthy, Alston, Nguyen, Simms, Feilhaber, Rowe, Sene, Brettschneider
