After a 2-1 loss to FC Dallas followed by a 2-0 loss to Real Salt Lake, the Red Bulls had to have gone into their first home game of the season a little nervous. One person that was not nervous was Hans Backe. Manager, Hans Backe, in multiple press conferences he made it clear that in his years as a manager he knew not to stress this 0-2 start. Seems as though he knew exactly what to do and what to say to his players. As soon as the Red Bulls took off their Get Well Soon Muamba shirts that they wore out of the tunnel, they put their game faces on and came out hard. Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper both scored 2 goals within 6 minutes. Both players scored 2 goals beating the Rapids 4-1, Cooper’s first goal of the night being his 50th MLS goal. This is just the win they were looking for to try and jump start their season and begin climbing the table.
