Forward Samuel Tetteh Joins New York Red Bulls

 

The relationship between New York Red Bulls and Red Bull Salzburg continues as young forward Samuel Tetteh joins on loan for the remainder of the 2020 MLS season. The Ghanaian international has been a staple of the Austrian Bundesliga and can potentially fill the hole left by the departure of Bradley Wright-Phillips.

"Samuel is an exciting attacking player that our scouts have been following," said Head of Sport Kevin Thelwell. "He is strong physically and technically, and plays with a lot of confidence. He's got an intelligence in each phase of the game and we believe he'll fit in well with our group."

Tetteh's time with Salzburg was brief. The player only made one appearance with his home club in the Austrian Cup back in 2017-18. Since then he has been on loan with LASK, where he played 72 games and scored 16 goals. There is an upside to the 24-year-old in that he's joining a system in need of a lead striker, potentially pushing Brian White or Daniel Royer out of the top spots in the 4-4-2 formation.

The question does remain as to whether or not he will adjust quickly. MLS is a very unique league and 2020 has been an even more unique scenario for players. The league will resume games in home markets later this month and Tetteh will be thrust into a condensed campaign where results will matter even more.

Either way, this was the type of move that Red Bull fans had been clamoring for. It is a signing in the prime years of production and much will be expected. New York returns to the field on August 20th when they play New York City FC.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision. While the arguments continued between Sean Nealis & Earthquakes representative Jeremy Ebob

Rumor: Dru Yearwood to be Traded to Nashville SC

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced More trade rumors are circulating as Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood is linked to a move to Nashville SC according to Tom Bogert of the Athletic . What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly. At times he played in a defensive midfield role next to Frankie Amaya and other times higher up the field, almost as a second forward. After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
