[MLS: Week 8] A week after finally picking up its first win, the New York Red Bulls are back in action on Wednesday against Houston, another team off to slow start in 2014.

"I think the strict lesson is, any time you bring in a player and there's going to be somebody displaced, whether that's three days out of three months out, the situation has to be handled with care. Those situations are different. The closer it is to a tournament and the newer a player is to the group, the more sensitive things are and the more care you have to take."

-- U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati, while saying it's up to Coach Jurgen Klinsmann's discretion who he brings into the national team and when, on the lessons learned from the decision to bring in Frenchman David Regis at the last minute for the 1998 World Cup. (MLSSoccer.com)
