Key decisions will need to be made by the New York Red Bulls who released their roster decisions following the end of the 2021 season. Key names are either out of contract or had their options declined including: Daniel Royer, Fabio, Mathias Jorgensen, Kyle Duncan and captain Sean Davis. Expectations are that Davis will return but we know that Duncan has already departed the club for Europe.

Several names will remain in New York for the foreseeable future including Frankie Amaya who signed a three-year deal with the Red Bulls which begins at the start of next season. The team has also decided to trigger the purchase option on goalkeeper Carlos Coronel who played every game for the club in 2021. Other players like Ryan Meara, Aaron Long, Omir Fernandez and Wiki Carmona have had their options exercised and are expected to return next year.

Other names of note are Andrew Gutman and Tom Edwards who's options have expired. There isn't any news as to whether they will return to the team next season. Edwards will be heading back to England with Stoke City and Gutman will return to Atlanta United.

Remaining New York Red Bulls Roster:

Goalkeepers: Carlos Coronel, Ryan Meara, AJ Marcucci, David Jensen

Defenders: Aaron Long, Lucas Monzon, Sean Nealis, Jason Pendant, Andres Reyes, John Tolkin

Midfielders: Frankie Amaya, Wiki Carmona, Cristian Casseres Jr., Bento Estrela, Dru Yearwood, Cameron Harper, Omir Fernandez

Forwards: Patryk Klimala, Tom Barlow, Omar Sowe

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.

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.

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
