The Red Bulls closed Giants Stadium to soccer matches with a 5-0 win over Toronto FC on Saturday, October 24, 2009. Following the match, this video was played, highlighting the team’s time in the Meadowlands and giving a glimpse of its future at Red Bull Arena. The video ends with the team thanking their fan base for another year of unwavering support.  If you were not there, enjoy the video, but if not, how come?  You missed a great match and atmosphere, despite the rain.

    Nice. Let me quickly say that I’m glad Red Bull is starting to embrace its MetroStars past. There was a weird discontinuity before, when it felt as though they were treating this as a four-year-old football club. Hats off.

    Let me end by saying Ritchie Williams needs to be signed up right now–director or no–before DC come looking for him. He deserves his shot. And if he’s considering his future (he must be) and offered the DC job, what is he going to do–wait until Red Bull hire a director before accepting DC’s guaranteed offer and getting prepared for next season? That could be months away. I understand Stover and Red Bull’s logic, but in this climate, where several clubs are going to be looking for experienced MLS managers this summer, RBNY need to do what they can to assure that they are ahead of the game and in good position next season. It’s going to be an important season coming up and this summer, starting with the combine, we need to do a lot of work and I’m not sure we can hire someone outside the MLS and hope to teach him about all the rules of our league in such a short term. I say hire Ritchie now, because is any Director of Football really going to look at Ritchie’s experience, commitment, and record and say, “No, he’s not right for us or qualified enough”? No way. Hire Williams, then hire the director, who (if he’s a smart and pragmatic director) will see that Williams is the way to go, and then that director can slowly get used to league (I’m just assuming the new director will be from outside the league), have a manager he and the club can trust, and RBNY will be all the better for it.

    Am I talking crazy?
