    with Juan Carlos Osorio

    Expectations have risen for Osorio and his team, after a supring run in the MLS Cup last season. The New York Red Bulls were left heartbroken in Los Angeles last year, losing to Columbus in the championship game. We met with New York coach Juan Carlos Osorio and talked about his aims for next season and how his club can bounce back after getting so close last season.

    Osorio, first of all can the Redbulls repeat their sucess from last year, into this year?
    Of course, there is no reason why we can't. We have a great squad and there is absoulutley no reason why we cant make it back to the MLS Cup and even take it a step further this year and win it all.

    How are you approaching the season ahead?
    Me and the coaching staff are just trying to figure out the best possible formations, and a bunch of other things. Were doing our research for the season opener, and you can bet we'll be well prepared for it. And lastly, were looking into signing a few players before the seasons start.

    Are you planning on trading/selling any players from your squad?
    Our squad is one which is rather large at the moment. I'll be looking to cut down the size of it so the players can have better chemistry together. It all depends really on how things shake up in the upcoming weeks.

    Could you name any names of players you're looking to bring in or ship out?
    I think you know the answer to that one!

    Thank you Juan, any final messages to the fans?
    Expect a great season from the team this season, and always believe.

    Interesting so far. I use to love doing these but with no more time I have to resort to just reading them and only playing FIFA. Good luck, and I'll be reading. :)

    Go Red Bulls! Well I used to be a fan until I watched the Sounders play on the first match day this season. I fell in love with the way they move the ball around the pitch! I have been a New York fan since the beginning of the MLS but this season my team will be the Sounders until next season when Philadelphia finally gets a team!

    Anyways...I will be following, good luck!

    Let's hope not. I was actually looking forward to something as creative as this.

    You should have seen my old USA one but that was on another forum. I rampaged through qualifying (in Winning Eleven) and got to the semifinals of the World Cup where I fell to Argentina. :( I remember stunning Portugal (ala 2002) in the first game of my group.:D

    But man, when I had that kind of time I posted previews, game reports, post game reports, interviews, etc. I even posted youtube videos of the goals once I go into the World Cup.

    Nice FIFA motto by the way.

    Ahh! lol this all makes me want to make one of these but I find the FIFA 09 manager mode to be a little too easy, unrealistic, and idk but I just get a weird vibe from it altogether. I think I might go out and trade in my Call of Duty: World at War towards PES 2009 and do this with master league. I know it is a step down considering that I already own FIFA but master league just feels so much better than FIFA.

    Anyone else feel that way about FIFA's manager mode vs PES's master league?

    Also, I love the fact that I can create my own team in PES... it makes me feel so much more attached personally to the team.

    Haha, thanks. It always gives me some measure of satisfaction to lose by 3 goals, but to completely take out 3 of the opposition in return with injuries. Usually this "tactic" is accompanied by plenty of Red, but sometimes all it takes is an ill-timed tackle at the right angle and letting play continue on...

    It's also pretty neat to see that the bearers of my anger usually mess up in the following few weeks and can only manage draws at best.
