- HIGHLIGHTS: Columbus Crew SC vs. New York Red Bulls | March 28, 2015
- Matt Bernhardt@bernhardtsoccerThere is risk in being that aggressive against a possession-oriented team like #CrewSC - but if you can execute, it is very effective.
- Young Gun@RealityDzekLuis Robles you absolute monster #NYRB
- Sean Cahill@GN_PunkRobles is still down after a nasty crash with him, Kamara, and the post. Somehow he held onto the ball. #CrewSC
- Juan Escalante@nerdwichSacha's been great this half. Probably the most technically-gifted MF on our team, and has showed really subtle touches tonight. #CLBvNY
- 90'+4'D#25Chris Duvall (New York Red Bulls) is shown the yellow card.
- The Indie Handbook@TheIndieHandbkI'm surprised Stoica didn't book himself for that challenge just now. #CrewSC
- Wes Brown@wesbadiaThis may or may not be controversial, but #NYRB may just be better without Henry/Cahill than with them.
- 90'+2'F#9Anatole Bertrand AbangM#10Lloyd Sam
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferree4 minutes of added time. Approx. equal to the amount of time Higuain spent whining to the ref. #CrewSC
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraSchoenfeld didn't really get great contact on that. #CrewSC
- Quinn@Quinn_WilliamsGreat save by Robles! #RBNY
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyAs Higuain was punching the ball in anger, Gregg Berhalter was gesturing for him to calm down. Happened right in front of #CrewSC bench
- Travis@StilwellTravisWow #columbuscrew I think the refs have a thing for NY I just can't understand these calls they're making
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_This game has gone exactly like #RBNY wanted. Pressure high and work hard to get the lead. Slow things down after that and defend.
- Total MLS@TotalMLSHiguain. No star treatment. He's off for dissent. #CLBvNY
- Sean Cahill@GN_PunkOfficially, the second yellow card is for dissent. Not smart by Pipa and it costs #CrewSC
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeOk. He's great on the field. No doubt about it. But Higuain is the worst good player ever when it comes to picking up stupid YC. #CrewSC
- 83'M#10Federico Higuaín (Columbus Crew SC) is shown the red card.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardy10,302 at frigid Mapfre Stadium tonight. Decrease of 5,524 from home opener. Last year saw decrease of 5,472 from game 1 to game 2. #CrewSC
- 82'Dane RichardsF#99Bradley Wright-Phillips
- 82'F#18Aaron SchoenfeldD#3Chris Klute
- Sean Cahill@GN_Punk#NYRB is not sitting back on the lead. Active pressing by their front four continues.
- The Pit: S&E@ThePit_SEFinal third passing has been abysmal for #CrewSC, regstering just 45% at this point.
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreePipa tried to Pipa, but it's off target. #CrewSC have about 15 minutes (including stoppage) to find an equalizer.
- Alfredo Fumacas@TalkingToDaDollJesse Marsch needs to keep this team up on the field. Lowering lines will be the death of this team #CLBvNY
- Major League Soccer@MLSView photo
- Alfredo Fumacas@TalkingToDaDollSacha will also need to track back and be smart with his passing. #CLBvNY
- supporter@importerxporterAlright that was fun, let's put on some defense #RBNY
- 74'M#16Héctor JiménezM#13Ethan Finlay
- Once A Metro@Once_A_MetroI ALWAYS BELIEVED IN YOU, MIKE GRELLA!!!! #RBNY
- Andrew Barnikel@ABarnikel21MIKEY GRELLA WITH THE CHEEKY CHIP WHAT A GOAL LETS GO #RBNY
- Matthew Brotman@LI_MattGolazo by Grella!!! #RBNY
- Alejandro @aforte232That shot by Zizzo hasn't landed yet. #RBNY
- Matt@Metros96Congrats Sal Zizzo: worst kick in the history of the world. #RBNY
- 67'1 - 2F#13GOAL: Mike GrellaGoals this Season: 1
- Sean Cahill@GN_PunkSteindorsson put in a good shift tonight. He's still settling in, but he definitely is a threatening midfielder. #CrewSC
- 66'F#13Mike GrellaM#15Sal Zizzo
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeTchani hits his own Tifo with a shot. Bingo! #CrewSC
- 64'M#17Ben SpeasM#7Kristinn Steindórsson
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyThat's Tony Tchani's fifth career goal and his first since June 30, 2012. #CrewSC
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraSteindorrson hasn't been as sharp as his first appearance. Hd good moments, but missed some stuff too. #CrewSC
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSIt's been absolutely game on since the #CrewSC equalizer. Crew and NYRB both playing much better soccer now.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSTony Tchani gets an equalizer for #CrewSC. A corner kick slipped through and Tchani was there to put it away. 1-1 in the 59th minute.
- Anthony Pollice@anthonypolliceAtta boy, Tony!! Let's get another one now! #CrewSC
- MLS GB@MLSGB_GOALLL! Columbus equalise through Tony Tchani #CLBvNY 1-1
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyThis doesn't look like the #CrewSC team I've watched during its first two games. Off-kilter, tentative, a step behind.
- just tolstoy@TolstoyFCSacha not sharp tonight. has 35 minutes to change that #RBNY
- 58'1 - 1M#6GOAL: Tony TchaniGoals this Season: 1
- Martini Hockey@MartiniHockeyNice dive, Crosby... didn't know you were playing soccer, too... #CrewSC
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraYeah. That was definitely a penalty. #CrewSC with work to do now. Need to be sharper than they've been all night.
- Jeremiah@cuvintuA little shocked Sam cut that back, but can't argue with the results #CLBvNY
- supporter@importerxporterBWP !!! 0-1 #RBNY
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraUgh. #CrewSC

- Michael Cumberland@m_cumberlandView photo#crewsc
- LeeAnne Yonut@ilovethecrewView photo
- Jeremiah@cuvintuNeither team doing a great job of maximizing time on the ball, no clear cut chances really, but some positive touches #CLBvNY
- Matt@Metros96Columbus is one of the best teams in MLS. #RBNY hasn’t been perfect but this performance isn’t too bad so far.
- Jeremiah@cuvintuStill undecided on Zizzo overall, but can't help but wonder if Grella finishes that chance #CLBvNY
- Alfredo Fumacas@TalkingToDaDollKeys for the 2nd. Kljestans and Sams involvement. And defensive tightness. #CLBvNY
- Nino Torres@espnino74HT notes: 1. The street fighter version of Pipa will pay off at the end. 2. Klute has to restrain Duvall, he has to much freedom. #CrewSC
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferree51% passing accuracy for #CrewSC in the final third, 56% in the attacking half.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyNot lacking for entertainment, but scoreless at the half. #CrewSC yet to score a first-half goal this season.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSWright-Phillips gave #CrewSC a scare there after a looping shot from a couple of juggles to himself. Just wide.
- Christöphér Allen@CleverGooseHiguian plays on a different level. #CrewSC
- Tony@tmoney1438Perrinelle is in Beast Mode! #RBNY
- Lake County Legion@LakeCOLegionKamara just seems not ready for the ball tonight! #CrewSC
- 39'M#10Federico Higuaín (Columbus Crew SC) is shown the yellow card.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSSacha Kljestan has been the heel tonight for #CrewSC. He's been involved in altercations, fouled, dived, generally flown around the field.
- Seth@SethMan31That attempt by Kamara just about sums him up as a player #CrewSC
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeGuys, guys, seriously...what good comes of arguing with another player/ the ref? Sure way to get a card. #CrewSC
- Rob G@6pointlessDuvall continues to exude all that makes him the man #rbny
- Sean Cahill@GN_PunkMidfield play is really physical. Saeid was brought down but Stoica wasn't interested in stopping play. #CrewSC
- RamboGooner@rambogoonerThis is insane. Slow it down. Retain possession. Stop flying into tackles. #CLBvNY

- Aaron G. Butts@Aaron_G_ButtsKamara passes to Steindorsson who places a shot on goal that was deflected by #NYRB GK Robles
- Shane@ShaneWilliamFeel like this cold is making us play a bit heavy. #RBNY
- Matt@Metros96Perrinelle drifts out wide a lot for a center back #RBNY
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_lauraPipa is killing it effort-wise tonight #CrewSC
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeIncredible hustle from Higuain to keep that clearance inbound. Great effort on a long pass to Kamara but it doesn't connect. #CrewSC
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Kamara has been moving out wide right quite a bit tonight, leaving Higuain alone in the middle. Something to watch. #CrewSC
- Kaitlyn McGoldrick@mcgoldrickkGrana is so smooth getting out of pressure #CrewSC
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyFederico Higuain taking the #CrewSC corner from the left side. Saeid had taken ones from the right.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLS#CrewSC have been really strangely arrogant in this one so far. Dribbling into opponents, getting too cute with passes, taking chances.
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardySteindorsson has been struggling, and his poor attempted clearance leads to the first #RBNY corner of the game.
- Andrew King@AndrewKingMLSHiguain is MUCH more active in this one already than in the previous two #CrewSC games this year. Sprinting, yelling at teammates. Vintage.
- Matthew Doyle@MLSAnalystI respect #CrewSC for having complex set piece routines. But when you have Kamara, Tchani & Pogatetz... just put it into the mixer.
- Tom Lillis IV@tlillis4Whatever hobbled Parkhurst was temporary. He's looking fine now. ⚽️ #crewsc
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardy#CrewSC getting cute on that free kick. Saeid takes it short to Higuain, who redirects it toward the box. Like an inbounds play in hoops.
- Nate Beckman@4castnateBetween #NYRB's awful shirt & Marsch's infinity scarf, New York already lost the fashion battle tonight.
- Amy Bernhardt@amy_laura#CrewSC came out tonight meaning business. Love it.
- Jeff Patrick@jeff_patrickView photo#HP#CrewSC#MapfreStadium
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_On that last NY attack, Grana took the player on the ball and left Zizzo for Finlay. Interesting. #CLBvNY
- 17'D#55Damien Perrinelle (New York Red Bulls) is shown the yellow card.
- Soccer Plus@SoccerPlusWestFinlay must know that Wallace is breaking in new boots. We never recommend wearing them for a game right away. #CLBvNY
- supporter@importerxporterPerinelle is french for Octopus #RBNY
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Finlay is a problem for #RBNY early here. They struggled with him last year when he scored 1 goal and had 3 assists in just over 2 games.
- supporter@importerxporterBeen pretty and pretty ugly at times #RBNY
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyKei Kamara will either score or assist on a goal tonight. Has already had numerous touches inside the area. Looks dialed in. #CrewSC
- Ben Ferree@ben_ferreeA low Kamara cross gets intercepted just before Higuain can rip a shot off. Close chance. #CrewSC
- The Pit: S&E@ThePit_SEThis match is already at a feverish pace. Both teams want to get out on the break in a hurry. #CrewSC
- Kyle Debelak@K_DebbzAH SO CLOSE ZIZZO #rbny
- Matt@Metros96This McCarty-Felipe-Kljestan midfield is legit #RBNY
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Parkhurst talked to me about playing the long ball if #RBNY pressures and plays 1 v 1 at the back. Saw that there as he looked for Kamara.
- Keith Collette@kcbus96Tchani with a rather spectacular miss from inside the box... #CrewSC
- roberto celentano@celestickssacha kljestan standing out early for #RBNY
- Patrick Murphy@_Pat_Murphy_Early here, but it looks like Klute is going with Sam when he cuts inside and leaving Duvall for Steindorsson. #CLBvNY
- Juan Escalante@nerdwichColumbus already the 2015 MLS Kit champion. #CLBvNY
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyFirst #CrewSC corner is taken by Mohammed Saeid, not Federico Higuain. Pipa not taking as many this year in early going.
- YELLOW CARD: Chris Duvall is booked for a rough tackle
- SAVE: Luis Robles makes a diving save to his left
- KICKOFF: Columbus Crew SC vs. New York Red Bulls
- supporter@importerxporterThink I like that long sleeve #RBNY
- Adam Jardy@AdamJardyYou make me sad, #CrewSC fans. It's KLOO-tee, not Klute. We went over this earlier this week.
- Matt Bernhardt@bernhardtsoccerChris Klute becomes the 224th player to appear in official competition for #CrewSC - the fourth debut this season.
- Sean Cahill@GN_PunkThe teams are walking out now. Official game time temperature: 26 degrees. It's cold and blustery. #CrewSC
