It took just two weeks for the entire narrative about the New York Red Bulls to change.
Without going into the gory details, the team appears to be in a total free-fall with cluelessness infecting at every level.
Meanwhile, Toronto FC is the beast of the Eastern Conference right now, winning six straight and claiming many of those 18 points without the assistance of MLS megastar Sebastian Giovinco.
Giovinco will be absent for this next match, but ex-Bulls Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore will be good to go.
The Red Bulls have already proven they can lose to the worst MLS has to offer. Can they rally in time to take on the best?
Here is the RBNY predicted XI:
Michael Murillo - Did Connor Lade play his way off the starting XI? If so, it will be Murillo or Sal Zizzo taking over
By hook or by crook, the Red Bulls must find a way to get three points from this game. Anything less could result in a few seats getting very warm, very quickly - and not because of the imminent summer heat....
What do you think?
