The foundation for a kickass team! Kaka also joined Orlando City FC, but this is XAVI the maestro. I will be there at Yankee stadium next year

Man City/Yankees co-own this team...that's insane.

What will become of the Redbulls? Is every fan going to jump ship?

Not sure, but there are core fans there...They play by East Rutherford...in Jersey. I can see alot of CT, NJ and surrounding areas support Red Bulls AND as well as the people who have been fans of that team since the Metrostars days.

I think alot of fans who live in the city and those that also root for the Yankees like myself are jumping ship...I mean I couldnt stand the Red Bulls and I like their stadium but I have never been to a game there.

On the bandwagon.
Team tank...but...do NOT trade Carmelo Anthony unless we get GOOD value.

I have been a very casual Red Bull fan since they were the MetroStars. I've been to plenty of MetroStar games, but only one NYRB game at the new stadium. I hate them because they reshuffle the entire squad in the offseason.

according to google maps I live six minutes closer to Yankee Stadium. Say what you want but I may have to switch my allegiance.

NYCFC !!!!!!!

Xavi is done. Should still be good enough for MLS, though.

Dont understand what Villa wants in the MLS. He still has a couple years left in his tank.

Until Henry retires, I'm loyal to the Redbull (because I'm really an Arsenal fan first and foremost)...I thought I read that the Xavi deal was falling through...guess not.

The last time I watched an MLS game was during Toronto FC's inaugural season...that might changed now.

He might play for a different team untill the MLS season starts for NYFC though, like David Villa.
