Winners of only one game in their last 10, the Red Bulls came away from Toyota Park with a 1-1 tie but that wasn't enough for midfielder Joel Lindpere, scorer of New York's goal against the Fire that gave it a 1-0 lead. Marco Pappa equalized in the second half and Lindpere's review of the game was far from glowing.
"I think everyone understands now that we cannot go on like this," he said to Big Apple Soccer. "We score one, but we give goals back. They get very stupid, easy goals against us, and then we fight to get the back. Then we do something stupid again.
"Game day should be like a party. I want to have fun. I play; I want to smile on the field. It’s not fun anymore."
