HARRISON, N.J. – Jesse Marsch is staying positive about the rash of late collpases in 2016 and keeping his tone upbeat when referring to his teams recent performances.

“I’m still very glass half full,” said Marsch in the post game press conference following his team’s 2-2 draw to DC United. “This is a good team. The frustration of giving some late leads will continue to reinforce certain things with mentality. We’re making it hard on ourselves and we’re going to get there the hard way.”

The players, however, are taking a different tone following Sunday’s late surrender of a two goal lead to DC United. Marsch knows that his team is frustrated with their performance and didn’t compound on the matter. After all, the result puts New York’s unbeaten streak at 11 games.

Still, the team was in no mood to look at any bright side following the encounter.

“It’s unacceptable,” said Bradley Wright-Phillips. “We had a chance to go top. As a team we have to sort it out. It’s embarrassing now.”

The result took away from what should have been a strong day for Wright-Phillips who scored his 18th goal of the season and his 63rd as a Red Bull, extending his all-time lead.

“I’m not too upset with the way things have been going with the team,” said Sacha Kljestan. “It’s just a disappointing result but it’ll go away in a day or so.”

    Blowing leads is now the identity of Jesse March’s Red Bulls

  • Soccer is sex to me

    They should drink more red bull jk :)
    Anyway, how sad is it when your older brother in Leipzig has all the money, while the little brother in NY has nothing.

  • Sammy the Red Bull

    We need to get this sorted by the playoffs. I cringe everytime we get a 2-0 lead.

    The glass for this franchise is always empty.
