RECAP: Klimala First Half Goal Pushes RBNY Over Miami

New York Red Bulls continue their solid close to the season with another win, this time 1-0, over Inter Miami at Red Bull Arena. Patryk Klimala provided the games only goal which was underlined by positive play from a Red Bull team that will feel that there were more goals left on the table.

Miami was a team in shambles heading into this game, requiring emergency loans to fill out their roster during this international break. For that reason, they played a defensive game and New York was comfortable attempting to penetrate the defensive block. For the most-part Miami was effective in keeping the Red Bulls at bay. It was in the 25th minute that the scoring opened when Andrew Gutman played a perfect ball to Klimala who took one touch before finishing and beating the Miami keeper. 

New York continued to push but found little in the way of clear opportunities. One in particular came in the second half when Klimala played a quick pass but the shot hit the post. From there balls narrowly missed feet and passes were inches shy to double the lead.

Defensively, the Red Bulls were stout and posted their fifth shutout of the season. The defense continues to be the team's strongest point and has carried the club to potentially continuing their playoff run. Tom Edwards and Sean Nealis have found their rhythm as a combo and now allow players like Kyle Duncan and Andrew Gutman to get forward to assist the offense. 

The win moves New York to 10-11-7 this season and moves them three points out of the final playoff spot. Next up is another Hudson River Derby, this time at Red Bull Arena against NYCFC Sunday October 17th.

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

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
