The Red Bull will close out their second week trip to Florida today with a friendly with Miami FC at 11:30 AM at Lockhart Stadium.  The team will return north following the match to begin preparations in New Jersey for the Grand Opening of Red Bull Arena on Saturday, March 20 against Santos FC.  So far this preseason, New York has posted a 5-0-3 record, and this match will mark the first for Carl Robinson since his signing with the club was officially announced.  We will be providing a running commentary here on Red Bulls Reader, as well as updates on our twitter page (@NewYorkRedBulls).  Starting lineup for New York:


da Luz—–Lindpere—-Robinson—-Ubiparipovic



3′ Goal NY!  Lindpere finds Chinn who finishes for a 1-0 lead.

7′ Sinisa gives it a go, but its wide right.

14′ Lindpere puts one in the area on a restart, but Miller’s header goes wide.

16′ Miami ties it up, putting home a rebound.  They have no #s or names on their shirts, so its difficult to tell who is who.

22′ Miller makes a run down the left side, and centers the ball on the ground, but Wolyniec can’t get a good touch on it.

33′ Lindpere plays to da Luz, but his centering pass is out of the reach of Chinn.

34′ Off a restart, Robinson sends in a cross that Chinn heads over the bar.

39′ Miami puts in a dangerous cross, but Petke is there to clear away a serious threat.


46′ And we’re back…

49′ GOAL NY!!  Lindpere whips in a cross that Chinn heads home.  2-1 NY.

52′ Another goal for Chinn!  This time with an individual effort down the right side, taking on a defender and slotting it home.

55′ Lindpere sends in another dangerous cross, but Chinn’s midfires on the header.

58′ Ubiparipovic whips one in on a corner that Lindpere gets his head on, but its cleared off the line.

60′ Sorry forgot about our subs: Sutton, Boyens, and Kandji replace Coundoul, Petke, and Wolyniec.

64′ Two more subs; Tchani and Stammler replace da Luz and Robinson.

70′ Stammler takes the corner, but its cleared by Miami FC.

86′ Garcia replaced Lindpere.

FULL TIME: 3-1 NY to extend the preseason run to 6-0-3.

    Hope we keep another clean sheet! Did I just jinx it?…

    • emilio Says:

      No you have no control over if Miami scores a goal on not, it depends on how the players on the field perform.

      • Darwin Says:

        So me hoping we win MLS Cup this year has no effect on what actually happens? Damnit….lol

  2. emilio Says:

    unfortunately not, lol

  3. nando Says:

    damn, we scored already…..i so want to be optimistic about this upcoming season

  4. Matt Says:

    Agudelo expected to play? We really need to get this sorted out with MLS.

  5. emilio Says:

    Chinn seems to be a player, maybe a good option of the bench.

  6. Cindy Says:

    Chinn is wilding out today!

  7. emilio Says:

    I think Chinn justed cemented his place on the roster, I like Wolyniec but could his days be numbered?

  8. emilio Says:

    Can you provide us an update on any second half substitutions?

  9. Alle Says:

    Chinn is definitely in, he has adjusted very well!

  10. kofix5 Says:

    Chin has already scored more goals than Woly did all of last year.


  11. Tim F. Says:

    Way to go Red Bulls! Hope they can keep that undefeated pre-season going! Need to establish a winning culture for our club

  12. soccer lou Says:

    i think woly’s number on the team are numbered Agudelo has play very good and he’s younger Chin looks like the real deal so far Woly he’s older than them two and even when healthy he’s better suited coming of the bench ok yes i know no experience with the rookies at all but that’s why i think they bringing another forward team looks good so far i think it’s time to see the team against Santos who’s been playing in Brazil even do it’s a friendly game it would tell us where the team stand
