New York Red Bulls Logo Chicago Fire Logo

The New York Red Bulls are in dire need of a victory, and tonight will offer a golden opportunity as they play host to the struggling Chicago Fire at Red Bull Arena (7:30pm, MSG).

The Red Bulls are coping with the absence of injured goalkeeper Frank Rost, but will have no excuse for not beating the last-place team in the Eastern Conference.

SBI will be providing commentary on tonight's match so please feel free to follow along here. As always, you are welcome to share your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

Enjoy the action (Commentary is after the jump):

    I’ve been out of the country and missed the last few games… Has Agudelo been starting on the bench or is this new? (and of course I mean since Rodgers went down)


  • Martha

    What’s with All the Albright dives? Has he been capped by Mexico? Is he South or Central American?


  • Mike R

    He is a great passer …but TERRIBLE defender….Rafa Marquez has made a career of that but defense is more important for the USMNT since the US doesnt have a possession game to hide him …

    So No, he’s not the answer…


  • ManicMessiah

    If Jair Marrufo isn’t the worst ref in MLS, it says more about the standard of officials than it does him.

    So sick of the draws. The fact that Auvray stands out because he has the legs to run hard is pathetic. I was probably the last person anywhere outside the head coach who was trying to defend Ballouchy but it’s just impossible to do it.

    There’s no way anyone can be picking this team to make the playoffs as of right now.

    define “new”. not when team is full strength (whenever that is). agudelo is not, nor will he be, a started for backe this season… only when absolutely needed.


  • john

    disagree. he has weakness, clearly, but that can be improved. that’s no to say he WILL, just saying he can. and you can’t teach that touch on the ball.

    he made some excellent defensive saves too.

    marquez got burned badly on chi goal 2. and he’s supposed to have the experience not to be. if you’re gonna single one of those two out, it should be marquez.


  • john

    and, the worst defender by far, tho, was roy miller. how many times, even on chi goal 1, was he just standing and watching.

    he’d have merit, if, when going forward his decision making was better. but it isn’t good. at least this game he didn’t try a long range shot which went stupidly wide.


  • TH

    Marquez is a waste of a DP spot, not tomention money. The guy does not defend, leaves it to Ream to handle everything. Hope he sold a lot of jersys but I doubt it. I don’t see smooth but lackadaisical.


  • AtléticoUnionCity

    Ummm no…those weren’t dives and he’s American to answer your sarcastic question. What game were you watching?He was being tackled hard all match. Glad to see u got trolling in for the night.
