NEW YORK RED BULLS vs HOUSTON DYNAMO RED BULL ARENA, Harrison, N.J. May 9, 2012 (WEEK 10, MLS Game #86) 7 p.m. ET (MSG; FS-SW+/Multimedios) The New York Red Bulls put their two-game winning streak on the line when they return home to entertain the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday evening at Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls are coming off back-to-back 1-0 victories, last weekend winning at the LA Galaxy. The Dynamo are concluding their season-opening seven-game road swing, their last match a 3-2 loss at D.C. United two weekends ago. REFEREE: Sorin Stoica.

The Red Bulls have won three of the nine league and MLS Cup meetings since, with six draws (including the last three meetings).  The teams have played to draws in their last three league meetings in Houston. But the Red Bulls will close out their Robertson Stadium history having never a regular-season game there (0-2-4) – though they did win the second leg of their Eastern Conference Semifinal Series in 2008.  The Dynamo have never won at New York, with three wins and four draws in seven league and MLS Cup meetings all-time.  Coaches record: Hans Backe v HOU: P4 W1 L0 D3 … Dominic Kinnear vs. NY: P17 W5 L4 D8 NEW YORK RED BULLS The New York Red Bulls ground out a second consecutive 1-0 triumph, this time knocking off the LA Galaxy on Saturday evening at The Home Depot Center. The Red Bulls are in third place in the Eastern Conference, with 16 points from 9 games. LAST MATCH  The game’s only goal came after 19 minutes. Jan Gunnar Solli carried the ball down the left flank and slipped a pass inside to Joel Lindpere, who burst through midfield untracked. With Galaxy defenders collapsing around him, Lindpere knocked the ball through a crowd and past goalkeeper Bill Gaudette.  Red Bulls goalkeeper Ryan Meara was credited with four saves in recording a second consecutive shutout.  Red Bulls head coach Hans Backe made one change to the team that held on for a 1-0 victory against the New England Revolution. Jan Gunnar Solli came into the team in place of Thierry Henry.  NEW YORK RED BULLS (4-1-4-1): Ryan Meara - Brandon Barklage, Tyler Ruthven, Markus Holgersson, Connor Lade - Dax McCarty - Dane Richards, Mehdi Ballouchy (Victor Palsson 77), Joel Lindpere, Jan Gunnar Solli (Juan Agudelo 82) - Kenny Cooper. TEAM NEWS  Backe did not change his back four, which had a combined 23 games of MLS experience entering the New England match – now the first of back-to-back 1-0 shutouts.

“It’s such an un-experienced back four, I think they have 20 games together, and it is their second clean sheet. The whole team just worked their ass off,” said Backe. “Normally when you have so many starters out you are forced to defend and they did in phenomenally. It was a definite team effort. They were under pressure but didn’t allow them a real opportunity, a lot of crosses and half chances, and Ryan [Meara] once again was phenomenal.” After going his first seven professional games without a shutout, conceding 14 goals, rookie goalkeeper Meara has kept a clean sheet in each of the Red Bulls’ last two wins. “We got a goal early and did what we had to do to keep the clean sheet and win the game,” said Meara. “It was a full team effort again, and I think it is good to play these tight games, sometimes when our back is up against the wall we learn how to grind out these victories, it was another great win.” Joel Lindpere moved from the left side of midfield to his preferred spot in the center of the park, and scored his first goal of the season. “I like to play in the middle because you can be more involved with the ball, and I know myself, the more I get the ball the more confidence I get,” Lindpere said. “I will play where I need to play. If we have healthy guys in the middle then I probably need to move back to the left, but the most important part to me is to play. If I feel fit and healthy, I just want to play.” Dax McCarty again filled the role as a defensive screen in front of the back four, with Kenny Cooper tasked as the lone striker. “The second game in a row with zero behind, and a win is a win whether it is 5-0 or 1-0, it is still three points,” said Lindpere. “I think a tough 1-0 win feels better though, it was a great team effort for the second game in a row, definitely a team win.” Jan Gunnar Solli returned to action after missing the New England match with a calf strain. But he moved forward to play on the left of midfield, after playing every minute of the first seven games at left back. “He’s a machine," Backe said. "Fitness-wise that is a guy who is absolutely top fit, all year round.” Juan Agudelo made his first appearance since the season opener for the Red Bulls in the win against the Galaxy, coming on as a substitute. Agudelo suffered a knee injury while playing for the U.S. U-23 national team in the Olympic qualification tournament. “It will be tougher for us of course with [Thierry Henry] out for 3-4 weeks, we are going to miss his goals and assists,” said Backe. “But I still think Agudelo can be good for 20-25 minutes every game and we will get him in until Thierry is back.” The Red Bulls should also have both Roy Miller and Rafa Márquez back from injury and suspension, respectively. Miller should regain his place at left back, but whether Márquez comes into the side for Dax McCarty is less clear. “I always said and thought that [McCarty’s] strength was from the halfway line and forward,” Backe said. “But now perhaps playing a little bit deeper he has the whole picture of the field in front of him. His passing, he only had two, three unforced errors in this game [against LA]. Overall, defending phenomenal, so let’s see if that is perhaps his position for the future.”

HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo return to action after another weekend off, their last match a 3-2 loss to D.C. United at RFK Stadium. The Dynamo are tied for sixth place in the Eastern Conference with 8 points from 6 games. LAST MATCH  United once again got off to a flying start. In the 11th minute, a long ball out of the back from Brandon McDonald found Chris Pontius behind the defense, and he touched the ball around on-rushing Houston ‘keeper Tally Hall before finding an unmarked Maicon Santos for a header from the spot.  The Dynamo pulled level in the 50th minute through Will Bruin. Jermaine Taylor placed a pinpoint cross in the box from the left corner, which the unmarked Bruin volleyed in from six yards out.  But United were back ahead through Dwayne De Rosario in the 54th minute. After a corner was partially cleared, the Canadian international whipped a ball in from the left side that slithered past everyone, including Hall, as the ball curled in off the far post.  Just five minutes later though, the Dynamo again were level. Bruin pounced on a loose ball outside the United box and fired dipping shot on frame that slipped under goalkeeper Joe Willis.  But Maicon Santos wasn’t to be outdone. In the 70th minute, he rose highest to meet a Daniel Woolard cross, nodding it off Hall's hand to the back of the net for the eventual game-winner.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made no changes to the team that reached a 2-2 result with the Columbus Crew at Crew Stadium.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-4-2): Tally Hall - Andre Hainault (Brad Davis 72), Geoff Cameron, Bobby Boswell, Jermaine Taylor - Je-Vaughn Watson (Calen Carr 59), Adam Moffat, Luiz Camargo, Corey Ashe (Kofi Sarkodie 82) - Will Bruin, Brian Ching.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo have scored two goals in each of their last two games – more than their entire output over the first four – yet have come away with just a single point.  “Disappointed, we fought back to get back into the game twice,” Dynamo boss Dominic Kinnear said. “We aren’t helping ourselves by giving up some poor goals, but on the other side we are scoring goals on the road, which is a good thing. [D.C.] just scored one more goal than us.”  But Houston has allowed multiple goals in three of their last four matches, conceding a season-high to D.C. United.  “I thought we gave up some bad goals,” Kinnear said. “The positive is we’re scoring goals on the road, but we’re giving the ball away in some bad areas and we’re getting punished for it.”  Will Bruin hit for the second multiple-goal game of his MLS career. His first also came against D.C. United – exactly 355 days previous, when he scored a hat trick in a 4-1 Dynamo win April 29, 2011 at Robertson Stadium. Bruin now has four goals in the last three games, with at least a goal in each. He has four of Houston’s last five goals.  “Maybe it’s just D.C.,” Bruin said. “I didn’t think I played too well in the first half, so we wanted to come out and create some opportunities in the second half and I feel like I did that.”  After sitting out two matches with a calf strain, Brad Davis was able to return to action, coming on as a substitute for the final 18 minutes.  "It was a tough situation for him to come into after being out injured a few weeks,” Bruin said. “I thought he did very well and he gives us confidence being back in the lineup and brings some great service in.”  The Dynamo will again have midfielder Colin Clark, after he finished serving his three-game suspension with the United game. Clark has not played since the March 23 game in Seattle; a hamstring injury shortly after the suspension ruled him out of two reserve matches in the meantime.  “Those [reserve games] would’ve been good for game minutes but I’ve been training hard and doing extra running after training,” Clark said. “Mentally, I’ve just been trying to get through it, and I’m ready for whatever minutes I get.”  The trip to New York will conclude the Dynamo’s seven-game road swing to start the season. They open BBVA Compass Stadium on Saturday with a rematch against United.  “Obviously we’re very excited for it and we want the home opener to happen right away, but we still have one more game on the road trip,” Will Bruin said. “Sometimes you have a tendency to look past the game because it’s the home opener but then we get a reality check and realize that we have to get three points there. It would be a lot of momentum if we could go to New York and get a win for the home opener.”  With a win, the Dynamo will match the best record on an extended road trip to open an MLS season, of the five clubs that have now done it. The Columbus Crew took 11 points from their season-opening seven-game road trip to start 1999. The Dynamo have eight from the first six games of their seven-game road start.

New York looks for its third straight victory when they return home to face the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday night. New York has kept a clean sheet in each of its last two matches. This past Saturday, the Red Bulls upended the defending MLS Cup Champion Los Angeles Galaxy, 1-0, on the road. The lone goal of the match belonged to New York midfielder Joel Lindpere. The win moved the Red Bulls to 5-3-1 on the season. Houston has played just six times this year, all on the road, and is 2-2-2. The Dynamo is winless in their last four matches after beginning the season with consecutive wins. This is the first of three meetings between the two teams this season.


RED BULLS VS HOUSTON DYNAMO – MAY 9, 2012 – 7:00 PM ET

BULLETIN BOARD RED BULLS BEGIN BUSY WEEK ON WEDNESDAY WITH DYNAMO TILT The New York Red Bulls continue their busy schedule with two Eastern Conference matches this week beginning on Wednesday when they host the Houston Dynamo at Red Bull Arena at 7:00 PM ET (TV: MSG+; Radio: WLIB 1190 AM). The Red Bulls enter the week off consecutive 1-0 victories, the most recent of which coming this past Saturday when New York blanked the defending MLS Cup Champion Los Angeles Galaxy at The Home Depot Center. New York went on top on 19 minutes through Joel Lindpere’s first goal of the season, and the Red Bulls’ backline and goalkeeper Ryan Meara held firm in shutting down the potent Galaxy attack. The win improved New York to 5-3-1 on the season and its 16 points place them third in the Eastern Conference, two points behind D.C. United and five behind Sporting Kansas City. United has played two more games than the Red Bulls. Houston enters the match 2-2-2 on the season, tied for seventh place in the Eastern Conference with eight points. The Dynamo have played all of their first six matches of the season away from home while the finishing touches are put on their brand new stadium, BBVA Compass Stadium, which will open this coming weekend when Houston hosts D.C. United on Saturday. After winning their first two matches of the season, the Texas side is in the midst of a four-match winless streak. The Dynamo was idle last week; their last match was a 3-2 loss at D.C. United on April 28. Forward Will Bruin leads the club with four goals and 23 shots this season. Last season, the teams were dead even in the two matches against one another, drawing 1-1 on April 2 at Red Bull Arena and 2-2 on May 21 at Robertson Stadium. The Red Bulls have a slight advantage in the all-time series between the sides, going 3-2-7 in 12 matches against Houston. New York also defeated Houston in the 2008 MLS Cup Playoffs Western Conference Quarterfinals, eliminating the Dynamo on their way to their first MLS Cup Final appearance. The teams play twice more this season, meeting in consecutive matches on Aug. 3 at BBVA Compass Stadium and Aug. 10 at Red Bull Arena RED BULLS-DYNAMO CONNECTIONS Dynamo forward Macoumba Kandji was a member of the Red Bulls from 2008-2010. New York signed Kandji during the 2008 season on loan from the Atlanta Silverbacks of the then-USL First Division, and he eventually joined the club permanently. In 41 matches with New York, Kandji started 30, scoring six goals and registering seven assists. On Sept. 14, 2010, the team sent Kandji to the Colorado Rapids in exchange for midfielder Mehdi Ballouchy. NEW YORK EARNS SECOND STRAIGHT SHUTOUT, BLANKS GALAXY The New York Red Bulls (5-3-1, 16 points) defeated the Los Angeles Galaxy (3-5-1, 10 points) Saturday night by the final of 1-0 to earn three big points on the road at The Home Depot Center. Midfielder Joel Lindpere scored his first of the season and the only goal of the match when he sent one into the back of the net in the 19th minute. Defender Jan Gunnar Solli, who made his return to the lineup after recovering from a calf injury that left him out against New England, earned the assist, his second of the season. One goal was all the Red Bulls would need to secure the victory, as the back line of Connor Lade, Tyler Ruthven, Markus Holgersson and Brandon Barklage limited a number of Galaxy chances throughout the full 90 minutes. Holgersson, who wore the captain’s armband in the wake of Thierry Henry’s hamstring injury, made a goal-saving play off the line in the 13th minute when Galaxy forward Robbie Keane attempted a chip shot over Ryan Meara. Ruthven stepped up later in the match to make a big clearance from just outside the box when the Galaxy forwards attempted to organize a successful attack in the 53rd minute.

Meara, one week removed from his first-career MLS shutout, posted a foursave effort en route to a second-straight clean sheet. Two individual saves, one on Mike Magee and another on a heavy shot from Juninho in the 82nd minute, stood and helped the Red Bulls improve to 2-3-0 on the road this season. YOUNG BACKLINE SHINES AGAIN The Red Bulls’ makeshift backline of Connor Lade, Tyler Ruthven, Markus Holgersson and Brandon Barklage has started two straight matches in a row and has yet to concede a goal. The foursome debuted on April 28, shutting out the New England Revolution 1-0 at Red Bull Arena, and followed it up this past Saturday by blanking the potent Los Angeles Galaxy attack in another 10 victory. Goalkeeper Ryan Meara made four saves against LA, earning his second career clean sheet. The five players currently have just 40 total combined games of MLS experience. CONSECUTIVE CLEAN SHEETS The Red Bulls have kept a clean sheet in consecutive regular season games for the first time since they earned three straight shutouts from April 16, 2011 to April 30, 2011. Late last season, New York did shut out two straight opponents; beating Philadelphia 1-0 in the final match of the regular season on Oct. 20 and FC Dallas 2-0 on Oct. 26 in the MLS Cup Playoffs Wild Card round. LINDPERE GETS FIRST Red Bulls midfielder Joel Lindpere notched the club’s only goal in their 1-0 victory over the Galaxy on Saturday. Lindpere’s 19th minute tally was his first of the season and 11th career regular season goal as a Red Bull. Lindpere has played in all nine of the Red Bulls matches this season, starting six. AGUDELO RETURNS Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo made his return to the field on Saturday after missing six weeks recovering from surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee. Agudelo started the Red Bulls’ first match of the season, on March 11 at FC Dallas, and injured his knee while with the United States Under-23 National Team. On Saturday, Agudelo came off the bench and legged eight minutes. Since joining the Red Bulls in 2010, Agudelo has played in 31 regular season matches, notching six goals and two assists.

In those games, New York is 27-0-11. MARQUEZ TO RETURN Red Bulls midfielder Rafa Marquez will be available for selection for the Red Bulls' match this Wednesday against the Houston Dynamo. Marquez missed New York's last three matches while serving a suspension for an on-field altercation during the Red Bulls' match against the San Jose Earthquakes back on April 14. New York is 3-0-1 in matches that Marquez has played this season. HENRY EXPECTED TO MISS 3-4 WEEKS Red Bulls leading scorer Thierry Henry suffered a strained right hamstring on April 28 against the New England Revolution. Henry is expected to be out 3-4 weeks. DEBUTS AND FIRSTS Red Bulls defender Tyler Ruthven and forward Jhonny Arteaga made their MLS and team debuts on Sunday, April 22 in the team’s 4-1 loss to D.C. United. Ruthven, in his first season with the team after spending last season with NASL side Atlanta Silverbacks, replaced Stephen Keel at halftime. Aretaga, who led FC New York of the USL PRO division in scoring last season, came on in the 81st minute for Dane Richards. The match also marked the first MLS start for Red Bulls defender Connor Lade, playing 90 minutes. Lade, a four year player at St. John’s University and the fifth Red Bulls Academy product to sign for the club, made his professional debut on April 14 against the San Jose Earthquakes, coming off the bench to replace Roy Miller in the 59th minute.


RED BULLS VS HOUSTON DYNAMO – MAY 9, 2012 – 7:00 PM ET RICHARDS CONTINUES TO CLIMB By assisting on Dax McCarty’s 22nd minute goal on April 14 against the Earthquakes, Red Bulls midfielder Dane Richards moved into a third-place tie with Mark Lisi on the club’s all-time assists list. With 25 career assists, Richards only trails Amado Guevara and Tab Ramos, who each had 36 in their career. Richards also ranks fifth all-time in games played and sixth in both games started and minutes played (in the regular season). MAKING HISTORY The Red Bulls made history on April 7 when they defeated the Columbus Crew by a 4-1 score. New York became the first team in Major League Soccer history to win three consecutive matches by three or more goals. Their victory against Columbus was preceded by a 5-2 win over Montreal on March 31 and a 4-1 defeat over Colorado on March 25. OH HENRY Thierry Henry scored seven goals in a three-game span from March 25 through April 7. Henry is the first MLS player since Edson Buddle in April 2010 to have three-straight multi-goal games. Additionally, Henry’s seven goals in a three-game span is the first such streak in MLS since Landon Donovan did so in April 2008. The last Red Bulls player to have consecutive multi-goal games was Jozy Altidore, who scored two goals on Aug. 12, 2007 vs. Toronto FC, and two more the following match on Aug. 18, 2007 vs. the Los Angeles Galaxy. STREAK SNAPPED Joel Lindpere’s consecutive games started streak was snapped on April 7 vs. Columbus. Previously, Lindpere had started 59 consecutive regular season games, which was the second-best mark among active players. However, Lindpere did contribute to the Red Bulls’ victory over Columbus on April 14, coming off the bench and assisting on Thierry Henry’s second goal of the match. It was Lindpere’s first assist this season and 14th since joining the Red Bulls in 2010.

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by a panel of journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR). Henry’s most recent accolade came off a two-goal, one-assist performance in New York’s 4-1 win over the Columbus Crew at Crew Stadium April 7 afternoon. The Frenchman helped start the scoring in the third minute, assisting on the team’s opening goal when he lofted a pass into the penalty box that fellow strike partner Kenny Cooper turned and finished.

DYNAMO VS. NEW YORK RED BULLS – THE END OF A SEVEN-GAME ROAD TRIP The Houston Dynamo (2‐2‐2; 8 points) meet the New York Red Bulls (5‐3‐1; 16 points) at Red Bull Arena in an  important Eastern Conference matchup on Wednesday night. It is the final test for the Dynamo in a seven‐game  road journey to begin the 2012 season. The Dynamo suffered a 3‐2 defeat at D.C. United on April 28 with Maicon  Santos breaking a 2‐2 tie with a 70th‐minute header for his second goal and match winner. Will Bruin twice  equalized for Houston, scoring in the 50th minute and then nine minutes later for his fourth goal in three games.  Similar to the Columbus game, the Dynamo‐United clash featured four goals in a 20‐minute span in the second  half. New York earned a 1‐0 win at LA Galaxy on Saturday, with Joel Lindpere providing the game‐winner.  Wednesday’s matchup marks the first of three meetings between New York and Houston in 2012, with the final  two coming in consecutive games, August 3 (at Houston) and August 10 (at New York).       Houston vs. New York: The Dynamo and Red Bulls have had an evenly matched series since 2006, with 7 of 12  meetings ending in a draw and the clubs tied on goal difference with 14 goals each. Overall, Houston is 2‐3‐7   all‐time against New York. Houston has not defeated the Red Bulls since May 31, 2008, but 5 of the 7 meetings  since have ended in draws. The Dynamo have never won in New York, with an 0‐3‐3 combined record between  Giants Stadium and Red Bull Arena. Houston is perfect at home against the Red Bulls, with a 2‐0‐4 record in six  Houston meetings. The Red Bulls defeated the Dynamo in their only postseason meeting in 2008 (4‐1 aggregate).       2011 Meetings: In 2011, the clubs drew both matches. The Dynamo earned a 1‐1 tie at Red Bull Arena on April 2  with Cam Weaver tallying a second‐half equalizer. New York returned the favor, earning a road point in a 2‐2  deadlock at Robertson Stadium on May 21 as Mehdi Ballouchy headed in a 91st‐minute equalizer.      

DYNAMO NOTES  Will Bruin has scored a goal in three consecutive games (4 goals total). This is the fifth time a Dynamo  player has scored in three consecutive games (Ching 2006, 2008; Joseph Ngwenya 2007; Stuart Holden  2009). No Dynamo player has ever scored in four consecutive games.   


 The three goals allowed by the Dynamo on April 28 at D.C. United marked the first time Houston has  allowed three goals in a game since Sept. 10, 2011, a 3‐0 loss at Sporting Kansas City. The Dynamo  went 15 games without allowing three goals in that stretch.    Corey Ashe made his 175th appearance for the Dynamo in all competitions by starting at D.C. He is  just the third Dynamo player to reach 175 appearances in all competitions (Brad Davis, Brian Mullan).     Brian Ching’s start against D.C. United was his 150th start in all competitions for Houston to become  the fourth Dynamo player to make 150 starts (Brad Davis, Pat Onstad, Brian Mullan).    More Ching: If Ching plays Wednesday at New York it will be his 175th appearance for the Dynamo in  all competitions.    A Hundred for Hainault: Andre Hainault made his 100th Dynamo appearance in all competitions on  April 21 at Columbus, becoming the 15th player to reach 100 in franchise history.    Cameron the Ironman: Geoff Cameron has started and played full time in 36 consecutive matches  (playoffs included), the most among Houston field players. Cameron has played 3,216 consecutive  minutes in MLS play (playoffs included), since he did not play on May 4, 2011 vs. Colorado.  Goalkeeper Tally Hall leads all players with 40 consecutive starts. Brad Davis had a streak of 45  consecutive starts broken at Chicago on April 15 due to a left calf strain.    Boswell Milestone: If Bobby Boswell starts at New York it will be his 150th Dynamo start in all  competitions. He would become the fifth Dynamo player to start 150 (Davis, Onstad, Mullan, Ching).     Brad Davis has 24 goals in all competitions with the Dynamo. With his next tally, he will become the  third Houston player to reach 25 goals (Ching, 64; Dwayne De Rosario, 32).    Possession: Despite playing their first six games on the road, the Dynamo have won the possession  battle in four of six games on the season and had slim disadvantages in the others. Houston had a 54‐ 46% advantage at D.C., a slim 49‐51% disadvantage at Columbus, 55% at Chicago, 56% at Seattle, a  narrow disadvantage (48‐52%) at San Jose, and 53% at Chivas USA.    Onside: The Dynamo were called offside three times at D.C. United on April 28. It was the first time  since March 17 at San Jose that Houston was offside after going three games without the flag being  raised against them.    First Road Win of 2012: Houston’s 1‐0 win over Chivas USA erased bad memories of the 2011 road  schedule. It took Houston 16 games to record its first road win of the 2011 campaign. After a 0‐6‐9  start, the Dynamo defeated FC Dallas 1‐0 at Pizza Hut Park on September 24.     


 Clutch: Brian Ching’s equalizer in the 81st minute at Columbus and Andre Hainault’s game‐winner  two minutes into stoppage time at Chivas USA were reminiscent of 2011 for the Dynamo. Last year,  Houston scored 14 goals in the final 15 minutes of games, second best in MLS (Seattle).    Six years after the club’s first match on April 2, 2006, only two players remain on the Dynamo roster:  Brian Ching and Brad Davis. Defender Eddie Robinson retired in January and joined the front office  as an assistant coach with the team’s Youth Academy and as a color analyst on TV broadcasts.   

UP NEXT: THE OPENING OF THE NEW DOWNTOWN HOME OF THE DYNAMO Houston ends it franchise‐record seven‐game road trip in New York before the opening of BBVA Compass  Stadium in downtown Houston on May 15.
