The New York Red Bulls took advantage of first half set piece situations in their 3-0 reserve match win over St. John’s University.  The Red Bulls converted a penalty kick and off a free kick to take a 2-0 lead at half and tallied another before the end of the game, with goals coming from Salou Ibrahim, Andrew Boyens and Conor Chinn.

Sixteen minutes into the match, recent Red Bulls signing Ibrahim slotted home a penalty kick after a St. John’s handball inside the box.  Another opportunity came in the 34th minute.  A St. John’s foul on the left touchline set up a Sinisa Ubiparipovic free kick. Boyens connected with the ball at the back post and headed it into the goal.

St. John’s had several dangerous opportunities in the first half – most notably a dipping shot that looked destined for the far upper corner, but ended up on the wrong side of the back post.

Rookie Austin da Luz replaced Ubiparipovic at halftime. With St. John’s pushing for an equalizer in the second half, the game opened up, giving the Red Bulls the space to establish their passing game.

A clever overlapping play with Juan Agudelo saw Chris Albright find space behind the St. John’s defense in the 50th minute.  Cutting in towards goal, Albright slid a ball across the six-yard box to an onrushing Chinn, who easily tapped it in to make it 3-0.

    Albright went the full 90? that’s awesome news! it’ll be great to have him playing RB and we can push J. Hall up, because Jeremy is inconsistent at RB.

  2. emilio Says:

    Jeremy is gonna get pushed to the bench not to the midfield, he isnt an MLS quality starting midfielder, he has some speed but his ball skills are below par, he is best suited to be Albright’s back up.

    • lou Says:

      i agree with this. He isn’t bad, and he is still young, but he just isn’t the player that some people make him out to be. I’m glad albright got a full 90 though, he will be able to help our defense and attack (as he is known for his attacking runs) once he gets fully fit. I hope chinn sees some playing time because he has been lighting it up in preseason and in these friendlies.

      • el Says:

        exactly, there is a reason the team is looking to sign another wide midfielder, they dont think what we have is starting material.

  3. Stan Says:

    Chinn scored in two reserve games in a row. I think he deserves to start in a mls game.

    • gigi Says:

      id like to see that as well, i remember he almost scored on his first touch in his mls debut with a pretty decent header. He should be rewarded with his play in these games. Maybe not a start actually, but deff more minutes.

  4. el Says:

    Chinn has a nose for the goal, he has scored 8 goals since joining NY. Wolyniec’s days are numbered.

  5. Tyler Says:

    It is time to start Chinn. Chinn was second in scoring in the preseason, he has scored in the last two reserve games, he almost scored on his first touch in an official MSL game vs. Seattle ( his score against Toronto in pre-season doesn’t count), and on Saturday vs. Chivas, he was and crashing the net and putting pressure on the defense. Chinn bring fire and a nose for the goal that we need.

  6. britton Says:

    chinn ? really ? what has he proved so far?????? I like the guy, but he hasn’t played . what they need is an a-mid ! it changes the entire look of the team…

  7. Brooker Says:

    Understand Luke Rodgers is signing for you from Notts County in England. He is awful, can’t believe you would want to sign a guy from the very bottom league in England who has only ever played in the bottom leagues all of his life !
    As for Hans Backe, since he left Notts County they have done nothing but win every game, something he couldn’t do despite all of the money and players at his disposal.

    • edwards68 Says:

      So what’s your point?
      Should we all jump off the GW bridge now and get it over with or should we maybe hold off and see how this season goes?

    • RBNY fan Says:

      Backe was 4-3-2 at Notts County and left because of unpaid wage issues. They’re winning with the players he brought in at that time.

      • gigi Says:

        ive never seen rodgers play, but the thing is i think we have alot of strikers already. Angel, Salou, Kandji, Chinn, Agudelo, Wolyneic, and chigardze. Thats five strikers that count against the cap, having a 6th one may be to much, with wolys lack of playing time i think backe might be looking elsehwere. Backe described rodgers as a player who does alot of work off the ball, id like to see him play but of course playing in the 4th division doesnt get me that excited.

      • DS Says:

        Agudelo and Chirgadze don’t count against the cap or the roster. They are home grown players and are in a different category. And Chirgadze is a long-term injury.

  8. el Says:

    The Brian Nielsen signing looks pretty impressive, highly regarded 23 year old Danish midfielder, plays right mid and attacking midfielder. Was to leave on a free transfer this summer and it looks like Red Bull scooped him up utilizing Red Bull Salzburg as the buyer. Will be loaned to us thru the 2011 season.

    • gigi Says:

      Has the makings of a good signing, if we do sign him i wonder where ubi fits into backes plans, especially when albright comes back ubi will be competeing with hall, da luz and nielsen for left mid. and will be competing with tchani, robinson, stammler, sassano and lindpere for cm. just like that ubi will prob go from a starter to seeing close to no time on the pitch. but i hope he stays with us, he had two good performances so far.

  9. emilio Says:

    We need more than 4 midfielders to compete, Backe likes Ubi, he can play multiple positions and there will be minutes to be had, but when the team is at full strength he probably wont start.

  10. Karbaz Says:

    Brian Nielsen is signed and waiting for his p-1 visa, we finally got out left sided midfielder. We got him on loan for now and hopefully he can send in some much needed crossing on the left side.

  11. emilio Says:

    It looks like we will be adding two more DP’s after the WC. Based on our recent moves one of those two will or probably should be a central defender, someone to replace Petke, a solid center back to pair with Ream would solidify the back. If Angel doesnt start producing I dont know if he will be back next season, and if he does come back next year I dont see him resigning for DP money. Soler seems to be doing a great job.
