PORTLAND TIMBERS vs NEW YORK RED BULLS JELD-WEN FIELD, Portland, Ore. March 3, 2013 (WEEK 1, MLS Game #8) 4:30 p.m. PT (ESPN2; ESPN Deportes) An intriguing interconference matchup kicks off the new season when the Portland Timbers play host to the New York Red Bulls at Jeld-Wen Field before an ESPN2 audience. Both teams are led by new coaches – Caleb Porter having taken over the reins of the Timbers, while former New York defender Mike Petke is now in charge of the Red Bulls. The Timbers are looking for their first trip to the postseason in their third MLS season, while the Red Bulls are coming a third consecutive year where their season ended in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals.

The Red Bulls have won the last two meetings.  Coaches record: Caleb Porter vs. NY: first game… Mike Petke vs. POR: first game PORTLAND TIMBERS The Portland Timbers kick off their third MLS season with a new man in charge, Caleb Porter having taken over the head coaching reins with Gavin Wilkinson moving back upstairs to his general manager post after guiding the club over the second half of the season. The Timbers are looking for their first appearance in the MLS Cup Playoffs, finishing eighth in the Western Conference a season ago. TEAM NEWS  The Timbers closed out their preseason schedule with a 1-1 draw with Sweden’s AIK in the final match of their Portland Preseason Tournament at Jeld-Wen Field. Michael Harrington scored the lone Portland goal, hitting for the equalizer 15 minutes from time.  Here’s the Timbers team: Donovan Ricketts, Ryan Miller, Andrew Jean-Baptiste, Dylan Tucker-Gangnes, Michael Harrington, Diego Chara, Diego Valeri, Will Johnson, Kalif Alhassan, Ryan Johnson (Frederic Piquionne, 70), Darlington Nagbe (Jose Valencia, 84)  The Timbers ended their preseason slate with a 3-2-2 record.  “We have a group of guys who aren’t going to quit this year,” Porter said. “If we’re not playing good soccer, we’re going to fight. I always believe that you cannot always be the best soccer player on the field, but there’s no excuse for not being the hardest working and being a team that is very difficult to beat.”  If there is a concern, it’s in the back, where Porter ran out second-year man Andrew Jean-Baptiste and rookie Dylan Tucker-Gangnes in central defense.  “There are certainly a lot of things we need to continue to correct and sort out,” he said. “There were moments in the game, even when we were completely on top of that team, where they hit us on the break and we have to make sure we’re a little more tight in the back at times.”  The backline could be shored up with the addition of Mikaël Silvestre, who is expected to be available for selection for the season opener.  The Timbers also signed midfielder Michael Nanchoff, a one-time first-round SuperDraft selection by Vancouver Whitecaps FC, who played for Porter at the University of Akron. Nanchoff joins another former Akron midfielder in Ben Zemanski, acquired from Chivas USA. They’ll presumably add depth behind starters Will Johnson, Diego Chará and Diego Valeri.  “They’re playing with a lot of swagger, a lot of confidence and a lot of mental toughness,” Porter said. “Boy, when we get going and when we’re playing Portland Timbers football, it’s fun to watch. It’s the tip of the iceberg, and that’s what’s scary. I think this team can be a really special group.”

It’s been consecutive trips to the MLS Cup Playoffs over the last three seasons, but a quarterfinal exit each time. The long-time MLS defender Petke takes over for Hans Backe, who guided the club to each of those results. TEAM NEWS  The Red Bulls concluded their preseason campaign with a 2-0 loss to the New England Revolution on Saturday night in their last match of the 2013 FC Tucson Desert Diamond Cup at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium. Lee Nguyen (4) and Jerry Bengtson (36) scored for the Revolution.  Here’s the Red Bulls team: Luis Robles, Kosuke Kimura, Jamison Olave, Digao, Roy Miller, Eric Alexander (Dax McCarty 74), Tim Cahill, Ruben Izquierdo (Jonny Steele 83), Juninho, Fabian Espindola, Thierry Henry  “Our goal was to end preseason on positive note and, this is probably the only time you’ll hear me say this after a loss, but we ended on a positive note,” head coach Mike Petke said. “We were all over them.”  Fabian Espindola, acquired in a trade with Real Salt Lake in the offseason, partnered Thierry Henry in attack. Juninho Pernambucano filled an attacking role on the left with Tim Cahill providing drive from the center of the park.  “The real positive side is how much we created, how much those guys influenced what we did as a team after going down 2-0, not hanging heads, pushing everybody on,” Petke said. “To us, that was a big turning point in preseason.”  Petke came into the preseason looking to rebuild the back four – a work that is still in progress. “I have an idea of what I’d like to see, but I have yet to see it,” Petke said. “There are a lot of questions still to be answered. I like competition within positions, and on the backline, we certainly have some spots up for grabs.”  The Red Bulls have Heath Pearce, Roy Miller and Markus Holgersson all back, while having picked up Kosuke Kimura (last Portland) and Jámison Olave (last Real Salt Lake) in the offseason. “Olave’s been the player we’ve wanted him to be,” Petke said, “so he’s in a very good situation.”  The Red Bulls concluded the Desert Diamond Cup winless in four matches as Petke ran out four different groups on the back line.  “We still have some issues extending back a couple years with momentary lapses on defense [and] slow starting on defense,” Petke said. “Guys [are] not willing to get stuck in and, as a defender, that’s the first and foremost thing you need. I’m looking for someone else to step up and that’s why there’s been a couple of changes.” OFFSEASON TRANSACTIONS IN: DF Kosuke Kimura (12/3/12 - trade from Portland); DF Jámison Olave (12/3/12 - trade from Real Salt Lake); FW Fabián Espíndola (12/3/12 - trade from Real Salt Lake); FW Josué Martínez (12/6/12 - trade from Philadelphia); GK Santiago Castano (12/11/12 - Homegrown); FW Amando Moreno (12/11/12 - Homegrown); MF Juninho Pernambucano (12/17/12 - free transfer from Vasco da Gama); MF Rubén Izquierdo (2/8/13 - free); MF Eric Alexander (2/11/13 - trade from Portland); MF Jonny Steele (2/20/13 - first right of refusal from Real Salt Lake); MF Ian Christianson (2/22/13 SuperDraft); MF Michael Bustamante (2/22/13 - Supplemental Draft) OUT: FW Jose Angulo (11/19/12 - option declined); FW Jhonny Arteaga (11/19/12 - option declined); FW Corey Hertzog (11/19/12 - option declined); MF Jan Gunnar Solli (11/19/12 - option declined); MF Teemu Tainio (11/19/12 option declined); DF Jonathan Borrajo (11/19/12 - option declined); DF Stephen Keel (11/19/12 - option declined); DF Tyler Ruthven (11/19/12 - option declined); GK Bill Gaudette (11/19/12 - option declined); GK Jeremy Vuolo (11/19/12 option declined); FW Sébastien Le Toux (12/6/12 - traded to Philadelphia); DF Rafa Márquez (12/13/12 - released); MF Victor Pálsson (1/4/13 - contract terminated); MF Joel Lindpere (1/4/13 - trade to Chicago); DF Wilman Conde (1/23/13 - contract terminated); FW Kenny Cooper (2/4/13 - trade to FC Dallas)

SOCCER CITY, USA The consecutive sellout streak at JELD-WEN Field is one thing, but the Timbers run of a 97-percent season-ticket renewal rate in back-to-back years is equally as notable. The club currently has a Season Ticket Waiting List of more than 6,500 fans and even increased the season-ticket allotment by 500 during the offseason, raising the total number of season tickets to 15,250.

NO PLACE LIKE HOME The newly renovated JELD-WEN Field opened on April 14, 2011 in front of a sold out crowd in the Timbers first-ever home match as an MLS team. The club proceeded to sell out 34 consecutive regular season home games during the past two seasons, even after raising the 86-year-old downtown venue’s from 18,627 to 20,438 after the first season. The club holds a 16-9-9 overall regular-season home record as of March 3.

HEAD COACH CALEB PORTER One of the most successful coaches in NCAA history, Caleb Porter was named the Timbers head coach on Aug. 29, 2012, and joins the club following seven seasons as the head coach at the University of Akron from 2006-12. He finished his time at Akron with a career mark of 123-18-17 and owned the highest winning percentage (0.832) among all active Division I coaches. Porter built Akron men’s soccer into a perennial national championship contender, leading the Zips to five consecutive trips to the NCAA tournament’s Round of 16 (2008-12), back-toback NCAA College Cup appearances in 2009 and 2010, and the school’s first national title in any sport in 2010. In all, he guided Akron to seven Mid-American Conference (MAC) regular-season championships and five MAC Tournament titles. Porter set multiple NCAA records at Akron, including a 48-match, home unbeaten streak (44-0-4) from 2008-11 and a 47-match unbeaten streak (44-0-3) in conference play from 2006-12. From Kalamazoo, Mich., Porter garnered numerous honors while at Akron, including NSCAA National Coach of the Year in 2009. He was a three-time NSCAA All-Ohio Coach of the Year (2008-09, 2011) and received MAC Coach of the Year honors six straight years from 2007-12. Porter became the fastest coach in program history to reach 100 career wins, accomplishing the feat in just 126 matches. He is also among the fastest all-time in NCAA history to the century mark, reaching the milestone in fewer games than collegiate Hall of Fame and current MLS coaches Bruce Arena (140; Virginia) and Sigi Schmid (136; UCLA). While at Akron, Porter recruited and developed more than a dozen Zips players who have gone on to professional careers, many plying their trade in Major League Soccer. He had an MLS-record five former players selected in the first round of the 2011 MLS SuperDraft and seven selected overall that year. Under Porter’s guidance, Portland’s Darlington Nagbe and former Akron standout Teal Bunbury were recipients of the MAC Hermann Trophy, awarded to the nation’s top collegiate player. Porter also served as the head coach of the U.S. U-23 Men’s National Team during 2012 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying and spent three years as an assistant coach on the U.S. U-18 National Team from 2009-11. Prior to joining Akron, Porter was an assistant coach for six years (2000-05) at Indiana University, helping the school make six NCAA tournament appearances, win back-to-back national championships in 2003 and 2004 and claim five Big Ten Conference titles. As a player, Porter was the 27th overall pick by the San Jose Clash in the 1998 MLS College Draft. He spent time with San Jose and the Tampa Bay Mutiny before a knee injury ended his playing career in 2000. Porter also played for the U.S. National B Team from 1996-97, winning a bronze medal at the 1997 World University Games. He had a successful collegiate playing career at Indiana, where he was a three-year captain, a threetime All-Big Ten honoree and a four-year letter winner. Porter led the Hoosiers to four conference titles, four NCAA tournament appearances – twice advancing to the College Cup. As a senior, Porter captained IU to 23 consecutive wins before losing to eventual national champion UCLA in the national semifinals and was the runner-up for the 1997 Hermann Trophy. Porter graduated from Indiana in 1998 with a degree in sports management. He and his wife, Andrea, have three children – two sons, Colin and Jake, and a daughter, Stella Jane.

MATCH DAY PREVIEW The Timbers enter their third MLS season Sunday with a new-look, a revamped roster and a new head coach at the helm. Caleb Porter, a highly regarded collegiate coach at the University of Akron, takes the reins in year three for the Timbers after being hired by the club in August 2012. Porter brings a new, more possession-oriented attacking style of play to the Rose City, as well as introducing a number of new offseason acquisitions. Among the two most notable players to put on the recently redesigned Timbers jersey are midfielder Diego Valeri, who joined the team on loan from Argentine side Lanús as a Designated Player, and world-class defender Mikael Silvestre, a veteran of nine seasons in the English Premier League with Manchester United from 1999-08. Outside backs Michael Harrington (Sporting KC) and Ryan Miller (Halmstads BK, Sweden) and midfielder Will Johnson join the team for the 2013 season, while Jamaican international forward Ryan Johnson looks to give the Timbers an increased goal-scoring threat paired up front with Darlington Nagbe.


NEW YORK RED BULLS AT PORTLAND TIMBERS SUNDAY, MARCH 3, 2013 ALL-TIME SERIES NOTES As far as excitement goes, the all-time series between Portland and the New York Red Bulls hasn’t lacked goals or thrilling finishes. While the Timbers are still searching for their first win against New York, Portland hasn’t struggled scoring against their Eastern Conference opponent - netting five goals in three meetings since 2011. Unfortunately during that period, Portland has conceded eight goals, leading to a 0-2-1 overall record against the Red Bulls. Sunday’s meeting is the second time the clubs will square off at JELD-WEN Field in Portland, the first matchup between the teams in the Rose City since June 19, 2011. In two of three matches between the Timbers and Red Bulls, the deciding goal hasn’t been scored until inside the final 10 minutes of the match. In the firstever meeting in Portland, Timbers defender Rodney Wallace was whistled for a handball in the penalty box and New York’s Dewayne De Rosario converted a game-tying penalty kick in the fifth minute of second-half stoppage time. Last year in New York, defender Heath Pearce bagged the game-winner for the Red Bulls in the 83rd minute.

LAST TIME VS. OPPONENT Despite getting off to a flying start on the road against the New York Red Bulls, the Timbers couldn’t hold off the home side as defender Heath Pearce buried the game-winning goal for New York seven minutes from time. Forward Bright Dike scored his first goal of the season in his first career MLS start and Darlington Nagbe followed to give the Timbers at 2-0 lead in the 32nd minute. The advantage was short-lived as Kenny Cooper and Tim Cahill scored to level the match by halftime before Pearce’s game-winner helped the Red Bulls stay undefeated at home.

WINNING AT HOME Entering the 2013 season, both the Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps FC have the chance to become the first MLS expansion sides to win three straight homeopeners since joining the league in 2011. No MLS expansion team has won its home opening match in three consecutive seasons. Seattle (2009-10) and Philadelphia (2010-11) each won their first two home openers after joining the league. In 2011, the Timbers opened JELD-WEN Field in a steady downpour as forward Jorge Perlaza netted a brace in 4-2 win. The next year, on yet another very rainy night, Portland came back from a 1-0 deficit to upend the Philadelphia Union 3-1 on goals by Andrew Jean-Baptiste, Kris Boyd and Kalif Alhassan.

NEW YORK RED BULLS AT PORTLAND TIMBERS SUNDAY, MARCH 3, 2013 NEW FACES

UPCOMING MILESTONES

As of Feb. 28, the Timbers feature 13 new additions to the roster following the 2012 MLS season. Head coach Caleb Porter, who will coach his first career MLS match on Sunday, has crafted a team that fits his attacking style of play and philosophy. Notable among the additions are midfielder Diego Valeri, who signed as a Designated Player on loan from Lanús in Argentina and former Manchester United and France National Team defender Mikael Silvestre.

If Timbers defender Michael Harrington sees playing time on Sunday against the New York Red Bulls, not only will it be his first career appearance for Portland, but also his 150th all-time appearance in MLS. Harrington spent six seasons with Sporting Kansas City before coming to Portland during the offseason.

New for 2013 (in alphabetical order): M Steven Evans, D/M Mobi Fehr, D Michael Harrington, F Ryan Johnson, M Will Johnson, GK Milos Kocic, D Ryan Miller, M Michael Nanchoff, F Frederic Piquionne, D Mikael Silvestre, D Dylan Tucker-Gangnes, M Diego Valeri, M Ben Zemanski.

SCOUTING THE RED BULLS The New York Red Bulls went through a number of changes following last year’s third consecutive postseason appearance. The club added new general manager Jérôme de Bontin and hired former Scotland manager Andy Roxburgh as sporting director. The team parted ways with several notable players from the roster, including starting midfielders Teemu Tainio and Joel Lindpere, releasing defender Rafael Márquez and trading forward Kenny Cooper despite an 18-goal haul during the regular season. Assistant coach Mike Petke – a 13-year MLS veteran as a defender for New York, D.C. United and Colorado – was elevated to head coach on Jan. 24 after a stint as interim manager during the offseason and the MLS SuperDraft. The club has reshaped itself with several new additions, the most notable being the signing of 38-year-old Brazilian attacking midfielder Juninho. A veteran of the 2006 FIFA World Cup and nearly 250 appearances for Olympique Lyonnais of France’s Ligue 1 during his career, Juninho is regarded as a dead-ball specialist with a penchant for scoring directly on free kicks.

FROM THE FIELD TO THE BENCH Portland Timbers head coach Caleb Porter is set to make his first career head coaching appearance in MLS on Sunday against New York at JELD-WEN Field. Porter is one of three former players moving into the MLS coaching ranks this season along with New York head coach Mike Petke and Toronto FC’s Ryan Nelsen. Porter was selected 27th overall in the 1998 MLS College Draft and made four appearances for the San Jose Clash in 1999. He spent two years in MLS before knee injuries ended his professional playing career. Sunday’s match marks Petke’s first game as a head coach after spending the past two seasons as an assistant for the Red Bulls. Prior to the 2013 season, 27 former MLS players made the jump from playing to coaching in the league.

PROTECT PORTLAND Dating back Aug. 5, 2012, in a 1-1 draw against FC Dallas, the Timbers have gone six straight matches without defeat at JELD-WEN Field, tying the club’s longest regular-season home unbeaten stretch in the team’s MLS history. Portland has a record of 2-0-4 during the run. The team’s other six-game, regularseason unbeaten streaks ran from July 30 to Sept. 21, 2011 (4-0-2 record) and April 21 to July 3, 2012 (4-0-2).

TIMBERS ACQUIRE FIRST ROUND PICK On Thursday, the Timbers traded forward Danny Mwanga to the Colorado Rapids for a first-round draft pick in the 2015 MLS SuperDraft. Mwanga appeared in 18 matches for Portland in 2012, registering three goals including a brace against San Jose on Sept. 19.

Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, a Jamaican international, is three wins shy of his 50th career win in MLS. Coming to Portland in a trade with Montreal on Aug. 7, 2012, Ricketts currently ranks 16th all-time among MLS goalkeepers in wins. Midfielder Diego Chara is less than two full games short of eclipsing the 5,000 minutes played milestone for the Timbers. Entering Sunday’s match, the club’s first Designated Player has appeared in 56 matches (55 starts) for the Timbers, logging 4,874 minutes.

CROSSING PATHS Timbers defender Mikael Silvestre and New York forward Thierry Henry have spent many years competing against, and with, each other. The two were teammates together on the France National Team for two editions of the FIFA World Cup (2002, 2006) as well as France’s squad for the 2004 UEFA European Championship. Born just eight days apart in 1977, the two high-profile players have tangled more than a few times on the pitch in England. Silvestre suited up for Manchester United from 1999 to 2008 while Henry starred for rival Arsenal from 1999 to 2007 as the two clubs battled for supremacy in the English Premier League. Even prior to that, the pair went head-to-head in France’s Ligue 1 as Henry began his pro career with AS Monaco and Silvestre with Rennes.

RJ VERSUS THE BIG APPLE Timbers forward Ryan Johnson has recorded 11 points (4 goals, 3 assists) in 12 career matches against the New York Red Bulls, a clip of nearly one point per game. The Jamaican international most recently scored against New York on Sept. 29, 2012, in a 4-1 loss for Toronto FC. Johnson gave TFC a 1-0 lead in the sixth minute with his seventh goal of the season, but the Red Bulls scored four unanswered goals for the win. In one of his best games against New York, Johnson registered a goal and an assist for San Jose in a 4-0 win on May 8, 2010.

OH CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN Head coach Caleb Porter named two captains on Tuesday, Feb. 26. Midfielder Jack Jewsbury, who spent the last two seasons wearing the captain’s armband, was named the club captain. Midfielder Will Johnson, a veteran of six MLS seasons and a Canadian international who was acquired during the offseason in a trade with Real Salt Lake, was named team captain and will wear the armband on the field when the Timbers open the season against the New York Red Bulls.

PRESEASON RECAP The Timbers finished the 2013 preseason with a 3-2-2 overall record in seven matches. The club equaled its previous preseason high of 11 goals (set during the 2012 preseason) and conceded seven goals. For the second straight season, the Timbers hosted a preseason tournament involving Swedish club AIK and two MLS opponents (San Jose and FC Dallas). Portland’s three matches brought in a total of 39,921 fans - an average of 13,307 per game. The club’s preseason finale against AIK, a 1-1 draw on Feb. 23, was witnessed by 14,968 fans. Forward Ryan Johnson led the club with six points (3 goals) during the preseason, while Diego Valeri and Darlington Nabge each registered a team-high two assists.

TIMBERS ACADEMY UPDATE Major League Soccer and the French Football Association announced a partnership earlier this week that will provide MLS Academy coaches with world-class training through an extensive development course to earn their Elite Formation Coaching License (EFCL). Timbers Academy Director and U-16 Academy head coach Mike Smith is currently in Paris as part of the MLS delegation hosted by the FFF at the federation’s Clairefontaine national training facility, where they will guide the youth directors through the same program as the one it provides its domestic coaches. The EFCL program, however, also will include customized features developed by MLS, the United States Soccer Federation and the Canadian Soccer Association TIMBERS U-18 NOTES The Timbers U-18 Academy recorded a 2-0 victory against San Juan on Feb. 23. It was a closely contested match until the final minutes, when forward Timur Zhividze (Vancouver, Wash.) scored twice inside a four-minute span in the 85th and 89th minutes to secure the win. Goalkeeper Collin Partee (Camas, Wash.) anchored the team’s first shutout in four games. The U-18s (6-8-2, 20pts) sit in fifth place in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy’s nine-team Northwest Division ahead of back-to-back matches this weekend against San Diego Surf (March 2) and Nomads SC (March 3) on the road. TIMBERS U-16 NOTES The Timbers U-16 Academy picked up a 3-1 win over San Juan, receiving goals from three different players. Midfielder Octavio Hermosillo (Portland, Ore.) opened the scoring in the 33rd minute to give Portland a 1-0 lead at halftime. Defender Matt Palodichuk struck for his first goal of the season in the 62nd minute before midfielder Jacob Kempf tallied a third straight Timbers goal in the 68th minute. San Juan pulled one back two minutes later on a goal by Patrick Lee. The U-16s (5-6-5, 20pts) are in fifth place in the Northwest Division for their age bracket and play the same back-to-back weekend schedule as the U-18s.

In addition, New York added a number of key players such as former Brazilian International Juninho, 2010 MLS Defender of the Year Jamison Olave and his former Real Salt Lake teammate Fabian Espindola and 2011 MLS Cup winner Kosuke Kimura. The Red Bulls also re-signed Academy product Connor Lade, defender/midfielder Brandon Barklage and goalkeeper Ryan Meara to new contracts.

Boever, 20, joined the Red Bulls after playing for English side, Charlton Athletic since 2011. The Spaniard went on loan to Spanish side, CD San Roque de Lepe during the 2011-12 season, scoring one goal in 10 appearances.

FRASER, GONZALEZ, WOLYNIEC JOIN COACHING STAFF The Red Bulls added Robin Fraser (assistant coach, Jan. 30), Rafael Gonzalez (goalkeeper coach, Feb. 11) and John Wolyniec (reserve team coach & player development coordinator, Feb. 14) to their coaching staff. Fraser, 46, was previously the head coach for Chivas USA for the past two seasons, signing with the club on Jan. 4, 2011. Prior to his first stint as a head coach at Chivas, Fraser was one of the most highly regarded assistant coaches in Major League Soccer, serving under Real Salt Lake head coach Jason Kreis. Fraser was part of the staff that won MLS Cup in 2009 and helped set a record for the most consecutive home matches without a loss (29 league games). Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, Fraser joined the coaching ranks following a successful career as a player. A two-time MLS Defender of the Year in 1999 and 2004 and a five-time MLS All-Star and MLS Best XI selection (1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2004), González, 42, was most recently a goalkeeper coach for Spanish La Liga side, Málaga. Prior to that, González was with English Premiership team, Aston Villa from 2007 to 2012, working with the club’s First Team and Academy goalkeepers during his tenure. González joined the coaching ranks following a successful playing career. He started his career in 1990, featuring for Spanish Side Real Avilés. He then spent five seasons starting in 1992 with La Liga club Real Oviedo before moving to Málaga, where he made 75 total appearances from 199703. He also had stints with Spanish sides Cultural Leonesa (2003-04) and Sporting Gijón (2004-05) and England’s Coventry City (2006-07) before retiring. González also played with Oviedo for a second time in the 200506 season.

Wolyniec started his coaching career at Red Bulls Academy following officially retiring from professional soccer in 2010. He joined the staff full time on January 2011 as an assistant, serving mainly as an individual technical coach. Prior to coaching, Wolyniec enjoyed a playing career that spanned 12 years, including seven-plus seasons with the New York franchise, Wolyniec, the only player in the Red Bulls’ history to have scored a goal in the MLS Cup Final, finished his career fifth in club history in goals scored in all competitions with 36. RED BULLS NAB KIMURA FROM PORTLAND The New York Red Bulls announced Dec. 3 that they acquired defender Kosuke Kimura and a natural second round 2013 MLS SuperDraft pick from the Portland Timbers in exchange for allocation money and the MLS Homegrown rights for defender Bryan Gallego. “Kosuke is a player who has impressed us for several years and we are happy to bring him to our club. He will provide depth in the fullback position and his MLS experience will be a great asset for us,” said Red Bulls Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh. Kimura, 28, played in 17 games, starting in 16, while recording one goal and one assist for the Timbers. He was acquired in midseason on July 5, 2012 from the Colorado Rapids in exchange for allocation money and an international slot. In the first part of his 2012 season with Colorado, Kimura started 12 games and logged a goal and an assist. Originally drafted by the Rapids in the third round (35th overall) in the 2007 MLS Supplemental Draft out of Western Illinois University to become the first Japanese-born player in MLS, Kimura played in 117 total games for Colorado, starting in 109 and recorded four goals and eight assists. In 2010, Kimura featured in 23 matches and was a key component in the Rapids’ MLS Cup Championship-winning season that year. In that playoff run, Kimura started in four matches and scored a goal. NEW YORK PENS ACADEMY DUO CASTANO AND MORENO New York signed Red Bulls Academy goalkeeper Santiago Castano and forward Amando Moreno on Dec. 11. Castano and Moreno became the sixth and seventh academy products to sign with New York’s first team via the Major League Soccer Homegrown Player rule. “Both of these players have trained with the first team during the past year and they impressed our technical staff,” said Red Bulls Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh. “It is a priority for our club to bring young players from our academy to the first team and we want to congratulate Santiago and Amando for taking this step.” Castano, 17, has been with the Red Bulls Academy since Sept. 2008. He has featured for the Red Bulls Under-14, 15, 16 and 18 teams and has trained with the New York first team throughout this time. On the youth international level, Castano spent time in Bradenton, FL as part of the Under-17 U.S. National Team Residency program in 2010 and has also been called into the Under-14, Under-15 and Under-18 U.S. youth squads.

In his two plus seasons with the club, Márquez appeared in 44 regular season games (42 of them starts) and notched one goal and nine assists. Last season, Márquez played in 15 matches and recorded three assists. He started in six playoff games during his time as a Red Bull. COOPER HEADS TO FC DALLAS The Red Bulls announced Feb. 4 that they acquired allocation money from FC Dallas in exchange for forward Kenny Cooper. “Due to salary cap restrictions and in order to balance our squad now and in the future, we have very reluctantly traded Kenny. The allocation money combined with the salary cap relief that we obtained will be vital for us to strengthen the squad in specific areas,” said Red Bulls Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh. “Kenny, who is a great professional as well as an excellent person to work with, has been a very good member of our roster and we wish him every success with the next phase of his playing career. Kenny and MLS have been very supportive during this difficult process.” Acquired on Jan. 12, 2012 from the Portland Timbers, Cooper led New York with 18 goals and added three assists in 33 regular season appearances last year. Cooper will return to FC Dallas to play for the club for the second time in his career after featuring for them from 200609. NEW YORK SENDS LINDPERE TO CHICAGO The New York Red Bulls announced Jan. 4 they acquired an International Roster Spot from the Chicago Fire in exchange for midfielder Joel Lindpere. “Moving to Chicago will hopefully provide Joel with consistent playing time,” said Red Bulls Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh. “We want to thank Joel for his time with our club and wish him the best of luck in the next stage of his career.”

Lindpere signed with New York on March 5, 2010 from Norwegian First Division side, Tromso. During his three years with the Red Bulls, the Estonian International logged 97 regular season appearances, including 89 starts, and notched 15 goals and 18 assists.

RED BULLS GET MARTINEZ, DEAL LE TOUX New York acquired forward Josué Martinez and allocation money in exchange for forward Sébastien Le Toux on Dec. 6. “We are excited to bring Josué to the Red Bulls. Our staff considers him a young player with potential. In addition, the allocation money we received will provide us some financial flexibility,” said Red Bulls Sporting Director Andy Roxburgh. “Sébastien indicated to us at the end of the season that he wanted to return to Philadelphia and we respected his request. We want to thank him for his service to the Red Bulls club and wish him the best of luck in the future.” In his first season in MLS, Martinez played in 18 games, starting in six and scored one goal. The 22-year-old was signed from Costa Rican side, Deportivo Saprissa, on Dec. 7, 2011. In 2011, Martinez played 18 games and tallied six goals.
