In 2011, the New York Red Bulls traveled to London in order to take part in the time honored tradition of the Emirates Cup. New York found a way to win the "tournament" by beating French side Paris Saint-Germain and drawing English club, Arsenal. The Red Bulls won one of their first pieces of silverware (it counts, right?) and enjoyed the long flight back home...unless we're talking about Frank Rost. He had a miserable flight. Now Arsenal is making the trip over the Atlantic in order to play the Red Bulls in Red Bull Arena....and they're looking for revenge....or maybe just to earn some scratch during a meaningless, preseason friendly.
Here's what we know:
- This couldn't come at a worse time.
- Good chance to see some old, familiar faces.
Here's what we don't know:
- Is anyone taking this game seriously?
- During which minute will RBNY announce their newest Designated Player signing?
