Recap: Late Comeback Not Enough as New York Lose 3-2

photo by Matt Kremkau

Revolution midfielder Carles Gil put on a show for the home fans as he assisted with all three goals. The New York Red Bulls fought back in the second half but would fall short to the conference-leading New England Revolution 3-2, winning their fifth straight match.
Head coach Gerhard Struber and his team felt confident going into this match, looking for a different result from the lopsided 3-1 loss they suffered one month ago. Complicating matters for New York was the injury bug claiming yet another player as midfielder Caden Clark was sidelined with appendicitis and needed surgery. 

The match started pretty even right from kick-off, just like last time. The Red Bulls nearly got on the board first when in the 12th minute, Dru Yearwood's taking a pass from Sean Davis, shot from the left side of the box but drifted high and off the post. 

But, in the 26th minute, the magic of Carles Gil in midfield would get things started for the Revolution. Delivering a world-class pass that escaped the New York defenders, he found Tajon Buchanan and scored his second goal of the season, putting the home side up early, 1-0.

Gil would be involved in the Revolution's second goal, taking a loose ball from a collision between DeJuan Jones and Kyle Duncan, sliced a killer pass over to Jones for his first goal of the season in the 32nd minute. 

The Revolution would then tack on another goal when Gustavo Bou took a quick pass from Carles Gil. Then out-raced both Frankie Amaya and Kyle Duncan and deftly poking the ball over a helpless Carlos Coronel in the 51st minute.

Patrik Klimala would finally answer for the Red Bulls just two minutes later, taking a brilliant chest pass from Fábio and scoring his first goal as a New York Red Bull in league play.

The Red Bulls would score again. Andrés Reyes poked home the second goal for the visitors after Fabio and Kliala kept the ball above in the box in the 75th minute.

The Red Bulls would threaten down the stretch, making for a dramatic and frantic finish during stoppage time, but the comeback would fall short as referee Rober Sibiga blew the final whistle, bringing a tense match to an end.

Starting XI:

New England Revolution: Matt Turner, DeJuan Jones (32'), Henry Kessler, Andrew Farrell, Brandon Bye, Matt Polster (Lucas Maciel, '45), Tommy McNamara, Tajon Buchanan (26')(Scott Caldwell '87'), Carles Gil, Teal Bunbury (Arnór Traustason 70'), Gustavo Bou (51')(Adam Buska, 81')

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

Ex-Red Bulls Coach Gerhard Struber Shares Thoughts on MLS and Salzburg

photo by Matt Kremkau by Anthony J. Merced Red Bull News Network had the chance to communicate with former New York Red Bulls head coach Gerhard Struber, now the manager of Red Bull Salzburg in the Austrian Bundesliga. Struber was with New York from the end of the 2020 campaign through to the early part of 2023. Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe. You spent nearly three seasons in Major League Soccer with the New York Red Bulls, what did you learn from that experience that has made you a different coach at Red Bull Salzburg? Struber: In addition to the sporting aspects, there is a lot that I was able to gain from my work at New York Red Bulls. Any work in a foreign country not only brings you closer to the language, but also to the culture and mentality of the pe
