The Other Football: The Red Bulls need to make a move before Ronaldinho gets snapped up
Youth Soccer qualified coach.
Red Bull Arena, New Jersey Watching this weekends New York Red Bulls 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Whitecaps, I couldnt help but reminisce about Thierry Henry and marvel at how badly his former team is missing the Frenchmans presence.
My youth team, the Petrides Panthers of the Staten Island Youth Soccer League, celebrated an unbeaten season as they won the under-9 boys spring league. Well-done to: Adnan, Angelo, Colin, Denis, Eric, Gio, Jacob, Harry, Ian, Isaiah and the two Joss, Leeran and Richard.

The Red Bulls are now one place out of a playoff position in 7th place, one spot above metro-area foes New York City FC, who are on a three-game unbeaten streak.
The 35-year-old Ronaldinhos contract was terminated a year early, but the former World Cup winner still has a lot to offer, and would be positive for the MLS brand.
An early red card and two penalty kick misses put the Red Bulls on the back foot against an impressive Vancouver team.
According to a report in the New York Post, Pirlo is now prepared to come to City and a deal could be done as early as Tuesday.
Ronaldinho reportedly met with Red Bulls representatives when he was a free agent last July, according to the SB Nation blog Once a Metro.
A future that the Red Bulls owners should make happen at Red Bull Arena.
Having already brought in Spains David Villa, NYCFC is preparing for the imminent arrival of former Chelsea and England great, Frank Lampard, and now it is about to introduce Italian superstar, Andrea Pirlo.
While the Red Bulls beat NYCFC 2-1 with only 10 men at their first ever meeting, the teams match up next Sunday at Yankee Stadium and then again in August at which point the Villa, Lampard and Pirlo trio might be playing together.

Now that the Brazilian has left Mexico, the Red Bulls, who seem to have a line to his advisors, should get on the phone and bring him to Harrison in time for the July 8 opening of the MLS summer transfer window and quick, before some other team like Brazils Vasco da Gama snaps him up.. Follow him on twitter: @ifutbol66.
Its a move that can only boost the teams profile and potentially cause the Red Bulls to lose fans to the aggressive Bronx start-up if they dont act.

Fox Soccer reports that in his farewell message on social media Ronaldinho thanked the fans of his Mexican team telling them that: Now I am going to take advantage of the holidays to rest and think about the future!
The Red Bulls need a big name player; forget its new philosophy of bringing in younger players at the expense of stars now is the time, before the fans start getting restless and lose faith in the team.
Thirty-six-year-old Pirlos artistry has helped teams hes played for win a World Cup, Champions League and Italian Scudetto titles, and his addition to City could help propel them to the playoffs and beyond.
So the timing of the news that Brazilian maestro Ronaldinho left his Mexican Liga MX team, Quertaro, couldnt have been better.
Adding fuel to the fire, he was spotted at a New York Yankees game over the weekend where he spoke to the MLSs team chief executive, Ferran Soriano
