Yet another disappointment. I bring someone new to the game and the Red Bulls start it off great scoring in the 9th minute and keeping possession for most of the game. You think in stoppage time with about 30 seconds left of stoppage time that the Red Bulls would just play keep away and kill time. Nah, they try to play fancy with the ball, loose it and get scored on. I mean come on another freekin tie!!!!
I’m so sad, they haven’t won in like 6 games. At least they are tying and not losing though right?
