Hartnett: Joel Lindpere, Red Bulls’ Engine On And Off The Pitch Demands Accountability From Teammates
New York Red Bulls’ midfielder has been a force for the club on the field and in the locker room since his arrival in January 2010. He’s providing true leadership by not letting complacency seep into his own game or that of his teammates.
Hans Backe has kept faith in starting keeper Greg Sutton but his erratic play has likely forced the return of Bouna Coundoul to the Red Bulls’ net. Would this be a wise move or should Backe continue with Sutton until a long-term replacement can be found?
Forward Thierry Henry said Thursday that an offseason of rest will help him and the New York Red Bulls reach their goal of an MLS Cup next year a lot more than spending more money on international stars.
