THE LUCK OF A CHAMPION
From Wilman Conde’s one time tying goal against DC United to the call in Cahill’s favor to earn him his first goal en route to a win against Portland, to the makeshift backline that achieved five straight victories in May – the Red Bulls have had a good deal of luck this season. Calls (for the most part) continue to go the team’s way while impressive goals are bailing out what has been a porous defense all season long.
Backe and Henry have routinely credited Lady Luck for many of their results this year. Who am I to argue? For once in the supposed “cursed” existence of this franchise, things are going the Red Bulls way – even as doubt shrouds them like a cloud.
