RED BULLS-CITY ISLANDERS LIVE COMMENTARY

Good evening and thanks for joining us for tonight’s third round Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match against the Harrisburg City Islanders. It’s a sunny day here at Skyline Sports Complex, as the Red Bulls arrived to Harrisburg earlier today to have a team meal and rest before the match. The winner of this match will play the victor of the D.C. United-Richmond Kickers game tomorrow. We’ll be providing live commentary right here so make sure you follow along! We’ll have starting lineups in just a little bit. Kickoff is set for 7:00 PM.

Here is the starting lineup for New York:

————-Wolyniec———–Chinn———

Agudelo————Nielsen————Garcia

———————-Hall————————–

Miller——-Boyens——-Petke—–Sassano

———————Sutton————————

Substitutes: Coundoul, Tchani, da Luz, Ream

A few notes to get you started:

– The Red Bulls advanced to this round after defeating three MLS teams in qualifying – the Philadelphia Union, 2-1, New England Revolution, 3-0, and the Colorado Rapids, 3-0.

– New York returns several previously missing players into the Starting XI, with Brian Nielsen (right knee) and Roy Miller (hamstring) coming into the mix. Andrew Boyens, fresh from New Zealand’s undefeated third place group showing in the World Cup, starts alongside Mike Petke.

– Forward John Wolyniec leads the team in goals in this year’s U.S. Open Cup with four, including a two goal performance in the squad’s last match against Colorado. Conor Chinn, who also found the back of the net in that game, has three goals this season.

– Midfielder Jeremy Hall will get the nod as a central midfielder today, playing there for the first time since in college. Hall told MLSSoccer.com yesterday that the position could be a good fit for him.

– If New York advanced, it would either travel to Richmond to face the Kickers on July 6 at 7:00 PM at the University of Richmond Stadium or battle D.C. United on July 7 at 7:30 PM at George Mason Stadium.

– Harrisburg defeated the Brooklyn Italians and Long Island Rough Riders to get to this point. Coached by Bill Becher, the City Islanders (the stadium is actually on an island), are 1-6-4 in USL-2 this season. An familiar face on Harrisburg is goalkeeper Danny Cepero, who was with the New York from 2007 to the beginning of 2010 and spearheaded the team’s 2008 MLS Cup Final run.

6:30 PM – Mike Petke is the captain for the Red Bulls tonight.

6:32 PM – Starting Lineup for Harrisburg: Danny Cepero, Danny Ruthven, Dustin Bixler, Jerrit Thayer, Anthony Calvano, Jason Pelletier, JT Noone, Nate Jafta, Jason Hotchkin, Geoff Bloes, Sheanon Williams

6:34 PM – Harrisburg usually lines up in a 4-4-2 with Williams and Bloes up top. Their bench: Dominic Oppong, Tishan Hanley, Tomer Chencinski, Kai Kasiguran, Vince Petrasso, Ryan Zabinski

6:37 PM – Looks like this is what Harrisburg is going to come out with:

————-Williams————-Bloes————-

Pelletier—–Noone—–Jafta———Hotchkin

Ruthven—-Bixler——-Thayer——-Calvano

———————-Cepero————————

Substitutes: Chencinski (GK), Oppong, Hanley, Kasiguran, Petrasso, Zabinski

6:45 PM: See some ESC members rolling in – “ESC On Tour” banner on clear display.

6:50 PM: Well-known MLS referee Alex Prus will be the man in the middle today.

6:55 PM: Red Bulls wearing their road blue kits (haven’t seen that in a while) while Harrisburg donning all white.

6:57 PM: Overheard a “In Backe we Trust” cheer after Hans’s name was announced.

We’re ready to get going here on this beautiful day right along the Susquehanna River (the stadium is actually on an island). Good showing by ESC today and we thank them for making the trip out here!

And we’re off..

2′ It will be interesting to see how the Red Bulls deal with the pitch conditions. Grass is relatively long for a soccer field. Chinn tries to get through but Cepero out to collect.

2′ Wolyniec earns New York’s first corner.

3′ Nielsen corner skips through the box but it is cleared by Harrisburg. On the other end, Sutton catches a weak shot from Hotckin on frame.

10′  Wolyniec pushes off his defender and gets to the end line and tries to cross it to Chinn, whose shot is blocked before being cleared. Red Bulls earn free kick in City Islanders half.

10′ Nielsen free kick shot knocks off Red Bull player and is out for a goal kick.

11′ Yellow card to Chinn for a tackle from behind in midfield.

15′ City Islanders haven’t truly threatened Sutton’s goal so far Bloes is whistled for offsides.

19′ Chinn earns the Red Bulls a corner after a good touch to get into the box.

20′ Petke puts a dangerous header across the box but Chinn can’t control it and Harrisburg clears.

Halftime: 0-0. Red Bulls had most of the possession but their best chance (and the best of the half) came when Mike Petke’s volley was saved by goalkeeper Danny Cepero. Brian Nielsen, in his first action back in a few weeks, had a few long range chances and New York had shots on goal blocked by Harrisburg defenders. On the other side, Bloes had a header that went straight to Sutton and Pelletier’s shot from outside of the box did not trouble the goalkeeper. We’ll be back for more in the second half.

105′ Boyens down on the field and is being attended to.

End of First Extra Time Period. The City Islanders with the best chance of the interval with Petrasso hitting the ball off the right post.

106′ And we’re off again as Petrasso is offsides.

107′ So Petke and Ream are playing centrally with Miller on the left, Sassano on the right. Boyens looks like he was cramping up, so he’s playing more as a center forward with Chinn and Wolyniec also up top. Remember, Boyens just got back from South Africa a couple of days ago.

      Don’t worry kiddo. Portland vs Seattle will have a stream. Now THAT looks like an awesome match.

      HOW HAVENT WE SCORED YET?

  7. tommy w. Says:

    Maybe they’re not legally allowed to to set up a camera, or feed recording! Connor Chinn is improving every game! His hard work is earning him goals, and he is making good decisions to help his team. Juan Pablo Angel’s 2 goals came after Chinn was subbed in. I hope Chinn’s nice run of form is showing. This will be a real test for him because unlike the other two cup (cough MLS) teams who we have played so far, the City Islanders are probably going to be really up for this cup game.

    azn pride

  8. Simon Says:

    Come on Red Bull

  9. hackmeister Says:

  12. Dario Says:

    I would love to win the US Open cup this year(along with the MLS cup) and the already great Mickey Mouse cup.

  13. Mark Says:

    Come on NY, get on the board before the half!

  14. Mark Says:

    How do we all think this will end now?

  15. Dario Says:

    1-0 Red Bulls.

  16. Mark Says:

    Would like to think NY can come out a little better than the 1H to win better than 1-0, you would love to see a nice 2-0 or 3-0 win if its possible need all that momentum going into the next round. early goal should spell trouble for harrisburg

  17. Mileni Says:

    I hope NY wins… Greetings from Croatia 🙂
    I’m waiting for this game to win some cash on my account, approximatley about 500€… Come on New York, you’re pissing me off right about now 😀

  18. AlfredoC Says:

    Come on red bull…..0-0 at half??…wonder how many NY fans showed up at the skyline complex to witness cepero and the islanders square off??

  19. Mileni Says:

    Anyway, is the United Soccer League like a lower form of MLS…
    Can any1 tell me more about your league systems.

    thx in advance 😉

    • harkes sucks Says:

      United Soccer Leagues is more like the Football League in England. Its the 3rd-4th divisions. It was 2nd division too, but the 2nd division teams broke away and started their own league. Harrisburg is a 3rd division team.

      There is no moving up or down though.

  20. Steve Says:

    With some planning, the team’s video guys could have recorded the game live into their NLE and encoded the game on the bus during the trip home. Upload it to the Red Bulls site in the morning and let us have a look.

  21. Mark Says:

    is it just me or will it take harrisburg to score first to wake up new york?

  22. Matteo Says:

    It looks like Harrisburg is playing the game of thier lives. Oh well, it’s time to take care of buisness, put in the first team starters Bache.

  23. emilio Says:

    what first team starters there are only four guys on the bench.

  24. Steve Says:

    Put Landon Donovan in! He’s back in America, right? 🙂

  25. Mileni Says:

    now I’m really worried 😦

  26. Matteo Says:

    Tchani. The coach is taking my advise.

  27. Mileni Says:

    Cepero plz stop making saves… if NY doesn’t score, one poor student will have no money at all tommorow 😦

  28. Matteo Says:

    Danny Cepero has a future in MLS.

  29. Zee112 Says:

    @Mileni- MLS is the top tier in USA & Canada. USL1 and NASL are tier two. USL-2 is tier three. MLS and USL are both sanctioned by US Soccer Federation, but operate independent of each other. No promotion/relegation.

  30. Mark Says:

    Does everyone else in here see LA destroying St Louis tonight?

  31. Tien Says:

    @Mileni: I bet $1000 on Red Bulls to win $500, too. This is not good!!!

  32. Dario Says:

    Who do you guys want to take over the USANT?
    Klinsmann, Kinnear, keep Bradley?

    I would love to take Klinsmann!

  33. Matteo Says:

    Keep Bradley.

  34. sweden Says:

    New York Red Bulls sucks… americans cant play football or as u guys call it soccer.

  35. Cubillas Says:

    What about Sigi Schmid?

  36. Zee112 Says:

    Bradley is an evolution of the Bruce Arena era. He raised our team to a new level, but fresh ideas are needed to reach the next level.

  37. gogo red bullies Says:

    svenskar här oxso 😀

  38. Dario Says:

    I feel as a nation our new goal in the WC is the Quarters. In 4 yrs time if we stay healthy…we could be a force to reckon with.

    We have come a long way in 20yrs, in just being happy to reach the WC.

    Did anyone hear ESPN 1050 “The herd” today…that guy is an idiot.

    • RobStyles Says:

      What did Cowherd say? He is a soccer-hater. I used to enjoy his show but he really is ignorant.

      • Patrick MacDonald Says:

        Really? Cowherd has been the only guy on 1050 to say anything good about soccer.

    • Dario Says:

      he was on a rant just as dumb as Jim Rome.

      But he was ripping on small guys, saying they are not great athletes.
      I guess Pele, Maradona, Messi, Tevez, Villa, Xavi, Del Piero and Iniesta are not world class athletes.

      • lou Says:

        i can’t stand cowherd either. I don’t know why, but nearly every sport “expert” on the radio or tv, seems to think if we stocked the national soccer team with kobe bryants, dwayne wades, and lebron jamesssss, that we would dominate other countries. The simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t that, simple.
        Look at the countries dominating the world cup. arguably the best team in the world (spain) is loaded with little, speedy players. The general consensus in this country is that because a lot of the us national team player’s aren’t that large, the aren’t good athletes and it’s completely ridiculous.

  39. Mileni Says:

    well, fxck it 🙂
    cya folks, and thx for some info I’ve gotten here.
    Gonna avoid playing US soccer from now on, stick to european where at least I know ‘who is who’ and ‘what is what’.

    GL to NY in next matches even tough they completely ruined me tonight 😦

  40. sweden sucks Says:

  48. Zee112 Says:

    Cepero was good when he was with Red Bull!

  49. Sack Says:

    So why did we cut Ceperp again?

  50. Dario Says:

    NO way, USA is way more physical than Sweden.

    Our hockey team went to OT v. Canada in the Gold Medal Game. You lost to Slovakia.

  51. sweden Says:

  58. RJB Says:

  60. Mileni Says:

    Ignore the swedish guy… I don’t understand people coming on forign sites just to insult other people. USA is improving every world cup, and I really like your team.

    Ask the swedesh guy how did his precious Sweden played vs Croatia in qualies…

    And they weren’t in a tough group at all. Denmark sucks, Portugal isn’t as strong as people think. C. Ronaldo is (deleted), and their attackers suck, defence is lousy… But hey, Sweden can’t find swedish people to play for they country, their best player is Ibrahimovic, and even he isn’t that good. And btw, he’s croat/bosnian :)))))

    Just ignore people like this jackass.

  61. Dario Says:

    YEAAHH… I dont think any American cares about the hockey world cup!

    We love hockey, but only NHL/Olyp. THe other stuff is for the kids.
    But I will say Henrik Lundqvist is the man. I love that guy.

  62. sweden Says:

    well for you information.. its about 4 in the morning here in swden

  63. sweden sucks Says:

    4 in the morning and alone.

    Nighty night to all 🙂

  65. rbulls rull Says:

  66. gogo red bullies Says:

    guys im from sweden and i don’t agree what this swedish idiot says just ignore him the us soccer team is improving every year and the mls is a good soccer league compared to other european leagues so just ignore the fool 😀 anyways good luck to red bulls next game greetings from sweden 🙂

  67. sweden Says:

    Ibrahimovic is the worlds best player after messi! he did like 12 goals for barca this season

    • Mileni Says:

      pique did 9 goals… and pique is defender. that’s how good ibrahimovic is. i would do more than 12 goals in barca. and ibra scored just 12 :)))

      barca is the ebest football team of all times, so it’s a disgrace what ibrahimovic is playing. eto’o was in his shoes and he scored 30+ for 3 years in a row… i hope ibra will leave barca since he sucks.

  68. RJB Says:

    And you’re not next to some slamming hot Swedish chick, but instead sitting at your computer at 4am talking smack on a forum for a soccer team half a world away. Cool dude!!!

  69. sweden sucks Says:

    ibrahimovic IS the best. just ask pique! JAJAJA!

  70. rbulls rull Says:

    sweeden guy just shutup ur making up so much bs right now

  71. Canada Says:

    I love rooting for the US since our team cant seem to get its act together, even though we ahve some solid players…

    • Dario Says:

      Canada does, with the new MLS teams coming, perhaps more interest will grow up north.

      How popular would you say the game is now is Canada compared to the other sports?

  72. rbulls rull Says:

    sweeden guy shutup ur a big lier

  73. rbulls rull Says:

    and stop with the bs

  74. RJB Says:

    Is this Woly’s last season with the Bulls?

  75. sweden Says:

    Im girlfriend is sleeping and dont want to (deleted) her in her sleep as might want to…
    yeahh well i had to.. thought a mls team woould win over a lousy team called railroads… lost (deleted) 100€ on them

    • lou Says:

      So a real winner like you, talking smack on a foreign website during the wee hours of the morning, has a girlfriend? Does she have man parts as well?
      A team Called railroads?
      And they schedule these games in the middle of our season, so we use our reserves to prevent injuries, so maybe do your homework before you start placing bets.

  76. rbulls rull Says:

    no wolys here for a couple more he has the same b day as me’

  77. RJB Says:

    Yea, this isn’t the MLS team, this is their reserve squad basically. The “Baby Bulls” play all the Open Cup matches.

  78. Tim F. Says:

    Why aren’t there proven goal scorers on the Red Bulls bench? What is Chinn or Woly get hurt or run out of steam or it goes to PKs?

  79. Canada Says:

    Football has always been popular just the organization of the youth structure seems to hold us back. Hopefully we can get our acts together and get our best players playing consistantly with the national team…

  80. RJB Says:

    I thought he’d be odd man out with upcoming signings.

  81. sweden Says:

    i love eating horse (deleted)

  82. RJB Says:

    Sweden dude, honestly, did you do any research before you made that bet?

    • sweden 1 Says:

    i love (deleted) cows

  84. neil suri Says:

    are we gonna win this or what…harrisburg just hit the post…what happened to the 3-0 wins?

  85. RJB Says:

    If it goes to PKs, I’d take Sutton over Cepro any day.

  86. Patrick MacDonald Says:

    I wish this game was televised. Sounds like the Bulls made a mistake letting Cepero go.

  87. Colleen Says:

    On TV replay Red Bulls V. KC but not a live game, not even a feed online pathetic…wouldn’t happen in Europe for a cup game.

  88. RJB Says:

    Boyens has done nothing for 3 weeks! he should be in great shape.

  89. Canada Says:

    I called the front office of the Red BUlls to see if i could get the game anywhere, apparently the facility that htey are playing at doenst have hard line internet to stream the game. Give the RB’s credit for at least trying…

  90. Tim F. Says:

    If Boyens has cramps, he should be subbed out and not play center forward. Angel and Salou should be coming in to score goals / convert PKs!!!

  91. Matt Says:

    The stadium they play at is the same thing as a glorified high school stadium. The press box looks like a concession stand. It’s nothing like RBS.

  92. RJB Says:

    Sweden guy sleeps alone tomorrow night

  93. rumplepeltskin Says:

    yay harrisburgh!!!!!!!!!!

  94. Zach Says:

    Wow. Did we really just lose to the Harrisburg Islanders? Really? Ouch

  95. fnx Says:

    Goal Harrisburg.

    Unacceptable, Mr. Backe. We had a good chance of lifting silverware with the path we were given. Sound familiar, fellas?

    *pounds desk*

  96. Dario Says:

    Night all!

    Red Bulls per sempre!

  97. redbulls33 Says:

    The Baby Bulls did all they could I’m guessing. MLS really needs to expand the roster size it’s ridiculous playing a game on Saturday then turning around playing on a tuesday.

  98. RJB Says:

    RIP Baby Bulls

  99. Hans Backe Says:

    Hi! sorry for the lost game we will recover!

  100. sweden 1 Says:

    yeayy harrisburg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  101. Colleen Says:

    I’m not asking for every stadium to be like RBS but even a 3rd division side in England when they are in a cup game has coverage, local & onlne if nothing else. Yet another reason why football (yes football) is a 3rd class sport in the USA.

  102. Chris Demczuk Says:

    That….. is embarassing. I don’t know what to say.

  103. sweden 1 Says:

    hail harrisburg! harrisburg should be in the mls and vice versa 🙂

    • lou Says:

      and yet our real team is in first in the real league, we have the best stadium in the league, henry and another unnamed player are rumored to be coming during the transfer window. Yeah clearly harrisburg should be in our place…

  104. lurock Says:

    absolutely awful. disappointed in this game. let’s focus on the league now guys!

  105. Matteo Says:

    Who gives a s**t. US Open Cup is a joke of a tournement. It’s all about the domestic league fellas.

  106. Zee112 Says:

    Looks like Cepero should be man of the match.

  107. Colleen Says:

    First the USA losing to Ghana now this…I need a drink!

  108. fnx Says:

    I don’t find a trophy, one that’s existed for decades, as a joke. I’m fuming.

  109. emilio Says:

    Not embarrasing, we played a completly different lineup and didnt have the full compliment on reserves. Lets focus on the league now, it was a good four game run.

  110. Matt Says:

    I don’t care that much about the US Open Cup, but it’s really pathetic that we lost. Lineup was a joke.

    • Zee112 Says:

      Cepero made a lot of saves. Another keeper prob lets one those shots in.

      • kofix5 Says:

        Another day & Cepero lets those in. His team has 1 win this season in their league.
        Nice job this game and I’m happy he’s developing his game in Harrissburg

    • Cubillas Says:

      I do agree, Matt. They should not be using this type of competitions to get some playing time to players returning from injury if we want people to take us seriously.

  111. Cubillas Says:

    Cepero showed our front office that it was a stupid mistake to let him go. He’s certainly better than Sutton. What a shame?

    • kofix5 Says:

      Seriously Nene, Cepero had a good game BUT his team has 1 win this season. He should not be missed.
      I have no opinion on Sutton since I really haven’t seen him tested outside of the Cruzeiro game.

  112. Sebas Says:

    Did that really just happen?

  113. Colleen Says:

    This cup is treated the same way the FA & Carling Cup are in England, when the reserves play until the semi finals…but one would think even with our line up tonight we should have won…just depressing.

  114. Cubillas Says:

    In our lineup, what positions were Agudelo and Hall playing?

  115. Zee112 Says:

    I think Cepero was the difference. He make quick and acrobatic saves similar to Bouna. And he played a part in our MLS Cup appearance in ’08. He still the only goalie to score a goal in MLS (with an assist from the Giants Stadium field turf!)

  116. Walter Says:

    See this is what happens when we throw away Ceparo, should have kept him.

    • kofix5 Says:

      1 league win is not evidence of a quality keeper.
      MLS Cup was luck
      the Goal was luck
      all the shots he let in as a redbull due to poor positioning that was talent level
      i’m happy he’s gone

      • lou Says:

        so all the times he is good is luck, and everything else is how he really is? got it.

      • kofix5 Says:

        The Goal had ZERO to do with skill.
        Making it to the CUP that year was LUCK and had very little to do with him.
        Losing the Cup however had a lot to do with his POOR Positioning.
        I was there behind the corner flag. He was way out of position on that goal, in exactly the same way he was OOP on many other goals scored on him from the upper left of the 18.

  117. Lou Is Still An Idiot Says:

    yep thats basically it. Tell me genious lou, If he was so good how come he is playing for for a third division side in the middle of no where PA? Nobody expressed interest in him after last season which led to his release and not being picked up by any of the other 15 MLS teams, almost all of which who beat him. Cepero was a good “professional” in the sense he said the right things, was liked by his teamates, and respectful of fans/media/organization, but as an MLS keeper he was average at best.

    And on a side note, how is your boy Christian Castillo doing for DC United this year? I haven’t been following haha

    Scientists say the study of the response depends on the cerebellum of the brain. Accordingly, the present study have implications for future treatment of autism and dyslexia, two conditions associated with abnormal function of the cerebellum.
