So, about Red Bull Arena being a fortress. So much for that right? A 2-0 loss to New York City is bad. A 2-0 loss where you don’t look competitive and only record one shot on goal? That’s much, much, much, much, much, (how many more times do I need to say it?) much worse. Bradley Wright-Phillips did not do much because he wasn’t given much. Sacha Kljestan didn’t do much because why should he? Granted, no one else, aside from Luis Robles, did much against NYC FC. The same goes for the Philadelphia Union USOC match where Ryan Meara again should be buying the post a beer after it saved a loss a regulation. Meara at least made good in Penalty Kicks and secured the New York Red Bulls a place in the USOC Quarterfinals.
