Tolkin and Edelman Called into Olympic Camp

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced New York Red Bulls homegrown players John Tolkin and Daniel Edelman have been called into the US Olympic training camp ahead of friendlies later in the month. Tolkin, 21 years-old, has been called into Gregg Berhalter's camps in the past while Edelman will be making his first trip to the national level. Tolkin, now entering his fifth year as a New York Red Bulls player, has experience with the national team going all the way back to 2018 with the US Under 17 team. In 2023, he played four games for the Under 23 team and four games for the main national team as well. While he isn't a first choice pick yet, Tolkin's consistency hasn't gone unnoticed by US Soccer scouts and another solid showing could see him inch closer to a starting position. For Edelman it will be is first selection to such a camp. His experience with the Under 20's was extensive as he helped the team win the U20 Concacaf Championship in 2022. That tournamen

Editorial: New York Red Bulls are Fun to Watch

photo by Matt Kremkau by Daniel Feuerstein The New York Red Bulls 2024 season starts off and running. In their first three matches, they have looked different from their last five to six seasons of doom and despair when trying to attack or have a lapse in judgment on the defensive end. The two big editions for the club are undoubtedly the imports from Sweden in Centerback Noah Elle & attacking midfielder Emil Forsberg. Two players who are a part of the Swedish National Team have started off well in Major League Soccer. We all knew what we were getting right away from Forsberg. A high-energy creative and attacking midfielder who was already bought in from day one, when Director of Sport Jochen Schneider went to Leipzig and brought him over. He was already committed to making the trip to the United States to play his brand of soccer, and so far he hasn't disappointed. Even though he has come close three times off of free kicks, hitting the crossbar twice and being saved by the ke

Red Bulls Win but Know Improvements are Needed

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced New York Red Bulls finished week three with a record of two wins and one draw after winning their home opener on Saturday over FC Dallas. Despite the early season success, head coach Sandro Schwarz knows that there are improvements to be made before the team can be considered one of the top teams in the league. "We have to impove for sure, especially in the second half," said head coach Sandro Schwarz after the game. "We were too passive and didn't control the game and so many mistakes. Then you lose a little confidence. But this is the third game in the season and and there is a quality to win games, especially with this performance in the second half. I don't want to criticize too much." New York dominated the first half with a controlled pressure that is quickly becoming their new trademark. In the past, the Red Bulls were known for their chaotic press that worked hard at winning the ball back and made for uglier
