The Red Bulls will honor former midfielderSeth Stammler prior to this Friday's match against the New England Revolution at Red Bull Arena (Kickoff: 8:30 PM ET; TV: Fox Soccer Channel). Stammler, who retired at the conclusion of the 2010 season, played all seven of his years in MLS with New York. His versatility and grittiness allowed him to excel in several positions during his career as he endeared himself to New York fans.
Still without both Tim Ream and Juan Agudelo, both whom started for the United States in their 2-0 Gold Cup opening victory over Canada Tuesday night, the road doesn't get any easier for the Red Bulls. New York will also be missing Dwayne De Rosario, who started for Canada in the United States matchup, and starting keeper Bouna Coundoul.
New York has drawn four times in as many games coming into tonight's matchup with the Revolution. Thierry Henry, who didn't record a point for the first time in six games against the Crew, will have to be a big factor tonight if the Red Bulls want to walk away with three points.
Henry did some good things against the Crew, mainly stretching their back line and allowing some space for other attackers, but he probably needs to find the back of the net tonight.
