The Red Bull Rant

The quasi dark side of RBNY fandom.

Jason’s Three Thoughts – RBNY vs New England – 2014-04-20

by Jason Iapicco

The NY Red Bulls hosted the New England Revolution in another edition of the I-95 rivalry. While in the pre-game, the team and fans stood with Boston, after the start of the game it was a different story. The game saw 3 goals within the opening 8 minutes, and NY took a 2-1 lead into halftime. In the second half, New England had a good portion of possession, but a Thierry Henry goal in the 80th minute would seal the deal, with Jonny Steele getting another insurance goal, and NY saw out a 4-1 win, their 3rd of the season, and 2nd at home.

Attendance

Another game with lackluster attendance. Why is it so hard for this team to draw fans on a beautiful Saturday night at 7:30 pm?

Early Goal Fest

3 goals in the opening 8 minutes; up, then down, then up again. You gotta give it to the Red Bulls this year, they have to make things interesting.

The Curse of Red Bull Arena

While the Red Bulls can’t win at Gillette Stadium, at least the Revolution can’t win in Red Bull Arena. In fact, New England has not won in RBA/Giants Stadium since 2007. So while the Bulls can’t get the goat off their back in Foxborough, at least they have RBA.
