Head of Sport Jochen Schneider just got this signing at the bell when he brought over Ghanian International Midfielder Ronald Donkor during the final moments of the MLS Transfer Window that ended on Monday, April 24th. The club has signed Donkor to a four-year MLS contract through 2026, with an option towards 2027. He will occupy an International Roster spot on the roster.

“Ronald is an exciting young player that we believe will fit well in our club,” Head of Sport Jochen Schneider said. “He is a box-to-box midfielder that has sound technical abilities, and we look forward to his continued development within our environment.”

The Red Bulls received Donkor from his club Guidars FC, but he also played in youth soccer with JMG Football Academy both clubs are located in his native country of Ghana. 

"I'm happy to welcome Ronald to our club," said Head Coach Gerhard Struber. "He is a very interesting young player, and our goal is to help him learn our style and continue to develop.”

While it's nice to see Jochen Schneider continue to add talent to this current Red Bulls roster, we really don't know if this new addition will help fix the issues that currently plague the club. Right now injuries to both Lewis Morgan & Luquinhas are glaring very brightly, and issues in the final third continue to get bigger.

You can't ask for an 18-year-old to be the savior of the season, but at this moment something has to give. The club's fortunes need to change, and if it's not now, then when will it be. But good luck to Ronald Donkor who will be joining the club and starting his new adventure into Major League Soccer.

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
