Five Lessons From a Successful New York Red Bulls Season

New York Red Bulls coach Mike Petke is leading a bright future at Red Bull Arena.

For the third straight season, the New York Red Bulls had their season end in the Conference Semifinals of the MLS Cup Playoffs. For the first time, they won a significant trophy – claiming the Supporters Shield with a 5-2 win on the final day of the regular season.

Though the Red Bull MLS Cup drought will continue, winning their first piece of silverware gives the season a silver lining. It also allows fans to label this season a success.

    This season was a success!!!!!!!!
    We won a championship!!!!!
    Remember this time last year: no coach, and all players got the axe. When the year began the thought was “rebuilding year!”

    Next year can be magical! We can go for treble. We have a great team now we need to add three more players to be dominant in all competitions; a centrl defender like olave a left back and a striker like kenny cooper that scores

    The real loss is for mls. The refs have done real damage to the playoffs. They cost the red bulls the series with poor officiating and dubious calls and almost did the same last night with real salt lake

    Ask a Devils or Rangers fan how many President Cups they won in the last 20 years ?? Then ask how many Stanley Cups . The Shield was nice because it gave us the opportunity to host the cup finals at home. But the goal is winning the cup. in order to do that IMO we need to get younger and have that extra energy to get us through the season by resting Henry and Cahill.
