Live from Red Bulls practice

Good morning folks. I’m at Red Bulls practice today, checking out the new players set to join the squad. I’ll do a running commentary from here for a while.

Enjoy:

———————

11:51am– Plenty of different formation looks today, with 3-4-1-2 and 4-2-3-1 among them. We also saw the 4-3-3, which looks painfully like a 4-5-1 if you don’t have the players to play it well (which is the case when you have Echeverry as one of the wing forwards).

———————

11:50am– Some good stuff from Rojas and Pietravallo. Van Den Bergh looked sharp today and Dane Richards looked pretty dangerous.

———————

11:41am-Nice little shoving match bewteen Magee and Pietravallo, good to see some fire from these guys.

———————

11:38am– We now have the 4-3-3 with Rojas-Angel-Echeverry. Unfortunately for them, Echeverry just can’t run and you can see Angel and Rojas getting a little annoyed by this.

———————

11:36am– The break is over and we have some new lineups.

———————

11:34am– And no Fire fans, he’s not Paulo Wanchope.

———————

11:31am– There is an unidentified Costa Rican player here as well. He’s about to start playing.

———————

11:29am– Oscar Echeverry looks really bad. He always looks like he’s laboring and nursing an injury. His knees must be killing him. I just can’t see him staying on the roster.

———————

11:28am– David Roth looked good taking on Hunter Freeman.

———————

11:25am– Juan Carlos Osorio is gushing over Gabriel Cichero’s passing out of the back.

———————

11:23am– George Welcome is drawing some fouls. He’s a handful, but I don’t know how quick he is.

———————

11:21am– Now we’re seeing a four-man back-line of: Jimenez-Cichero-Boyens-Freeman

———————

11:19am- Juan Pietravallo looks very good, gets into the attack well.

———————

11:14am– The sides have switched to 4-3-3. Her are the lineups

———————

11:13am– Few things funnier than hearing Jon Conway speak Spanish. It’s better than you’d think.

———————

11:11am– I haven’t been to many practices in the past few weeks but I have to say this is the best practice I’ve seen this year. The extra talent surely helps. Rojas looks legit and Cichero looks very good.

———————

11:09am– Yes, that’s Honduran Under-23 striker George Welcome at training. He’s a big kid. I’ll be sure to ask what they plan to do about New England’s discovery claim on him.

———————

11:05am– Here is another lineup:

——–Echeverry——-GEORGE WELCOME——

———————-Magee————————-

Van Den Bergh———————–Ubiparipovic

11am- Here are the lineups:

———————

10:59– Ubiparipovic with a header goal.

———————

10:58– Gabriel Cichero is here.

———————

10:56– The team is playing 11 v. 11 with emphasis on the 3-4-1-2 formation.
