RECAP: New York Red Bulls pounds Inter Miami, 4-1

(photo by Matt Kremkau)

Just a scant four days after losing a match at home in embarrassing fashion to FC Cincinnati, the New York Red Bulls flew south in search of some much-needed points on the road against a former captain and club legend Luis Robles against Inter Miami CF.

They were able to do just that, riding an opening penalty-kick goal by Mandela Egbo and goals from Brian White, Ben Mines and Daniel Royer propelled the Red Bulls to a 4-1 victory.

Egbo was able to get the Red Bulls on the board early in the 14th minute after Blaise Matuidi got his feet tangled with Stroud in his own penalty area, which drew a penalty whistle from referee Alex Chilowitcz. That allowed Egbo to cooly send Robles the wrong way, slotting home the finish to give the visitors the quick lead they were looking for.

After falling behind 1-0, Inter Miami was able fight back and equalize the match in the 38th minute as former Red Bull midifleder Juan Agudelo slotted the ball past goalkeeper David Jensen into the back of the net. 

The Red Bulls quickly jumped back in front in the 49th minute. Miami defender Ben Sweat was disposed in his own box, the ball eventually made its way over to Omir Fernandez who cooly touch-passed the ball over to a wide-open Brian White, who tapped it home with the easy finish.

The Red Bulls were finished, as Ben mines added a valuable insurance tally in the 85th minute, poking home a rebound after Tom Barlow's initial shot was saved by Luis Robles at the back end of a counter-attack. Finally, Daniel Royer scored his third goal of the season deep into stoppage time to put the match away for good.

As far as wins go, this was a good one to wipe the bad taste out of their collective mouths after a terrible and frustrating loss at home against FC Cincinnati. With three very important points on the road in the bag, they now head home to face a Montreal Impact team that's lead by yet another former club legend, head coach Thierry Henry in Red Bull Areana on Sunday.

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

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
