Red Bulls in Europe

The Insider has confirmed that Red Bulls sports director Jeff Agoos is planning to head to Europe next week on a scouting mission. MLS's international signing period opens July 15, and with an 0-9-1 road record (one goal scored), two victories in league play, three overall and the CONCACAF Champions League approaching, New York is desperate for help. Austrian midfielder Ernst Obster, recently on trial, was among the players on their radar.

Agoos needs to come back with an entire team, not just a few players. The "energy drinks" are terrible!

They ought to just get rid of a few of the players making over 100k, and sign the starting XI from Puerto Rico or Charleston.

Except John Wilson, DC could use him back.

Did someone say "Europe!?"

"We're leaving together,
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back,
To earth, who can tell?
I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground
Will things ever be the same again?

It's the final countdown..."

Ernst Obster? Red Bull, now with serious fruit flavor.

Ernst "Rock" Obster

The only way Agoos can help the NYRB is by staying in Europe himself. Hasn't he been the one presiding over this fiasco and all the others that have taken place in NY in recent years?

"Red Bulls," "Jeff Agoos," "scouting mission" and "Austrian midfielder" all in the span of three sentences. That really says it all, doesn't it?

Sure this is a scouting mission and not just a summons to the Home Office for a talking to?

Sorry Jeff, you just missed out on Kaka and Ronaldo. Perhaps David Villa?

Well, Goose was born in Switzerland. Maybe he can bring back some of his countrymen, following in the line of great Swiss players who have played in MLS like Alain "Swiss Miss" Sutter.
