    Ricardo Clark.

    lothar matthaus

  5. RLW2020 says:

    whats next are they going to create a reality tv show for the DP revealing? just announce Henry already..!

  6. Jeff says:

    Just 1? We all expected that. News would be signing 2 DPs.

  7. patrick says:

    i think they’re going to get henry in as fast as possible for two reasons 1) Sell some tickets and jerseys and 2) Similar to wade/bosh signing first, it will make the red bulls far more attractive to a second DP to see Henry already there.

  8. john.q says:

    LeBron James
    i heard he will have a 3 hour special on ESPN to make his shocking, surprise announcement.

  9. Aaron in StL says:

    Johnny Bornstein… Alicia Keyes will be there for his welcoming concert

  10. Jason says:

    Thierry Henry

  11. hendrix says:

    Pele’s coming back.

  12. UnitedinTX says:

    common. We all know it is Henry

  13. peterjh says:

    John O’Brien

  14. kinsella says:

    Giorgio Chinaglia?

  15. Waterlewd says:

    Ugh! Microsoft Silverlight, I hate you! Is there another video link?

    I’d buy an Henry jersey if the uniforms weren’t so ugly.

  16. SP says:

    bob bradley

  17. Benred says:

    Robert Green

  18. Brent McD. says:

    On the 14th, eh? Hmmmm, what number does Henry wear? A clue perhaps….

  19. Stephen says:

    Common? The rapper?

  20. Joe B. NYC says:

    Could it have something to do with the Bastille Day?

    I say Ricardo Clark!

  21. SunnysideFC says:

    Everyone knows… Henry

  22. They signed the oneders to a 2 album deal..

  23. MC Pharoah says:

    They wont sign two DP’s at one time….the other one will follow and will most likely be a creative mid, but as of right now those options are short unless they look at a less popular but excellent player like Andres D’Alessandro. I hope thats the case and maybe it is, but ive just been hearing there will be two big names.

  24. stumped says:

    King of goals, Sergio Galvan Ray!

  25. David K says:

    OMG! Gusippe Rossi is going to be a Red Bull AWSOME!

  26. MC Pharoah says:

    Im thinkin it could be Nasty Nas

  27. Thierry Henry says:

    I wonder who it will be….

  28. Indigo Montoya says:

    The 6-fingered man?

  29. Mike M says:

    Youri Djorkaeff comming back??????

  30. ko'd says:

    Well done. You beat me to it.

  31. MC Pharoah says:

    oddly enough, he was at Reyna’s and Nash’s showdown in China Town…..just saying though

  32. ko'd says:

    link to

  33. Waterlewd says:

    I’m surprised nobody has mentioned the marvelous Mister Adu.

  34. Imrightyourwrong says:

    I would not be shocked to see them sign DeMarcus Beasley as a 2nd DP.

  35. Hokie_Futbol says:

    HAHAHAHA well done

  36. RedLine55 says:

    risky, but I think it could pay off. well done.

  37. QuakerOtis says:


    She’ll do a solo bit followed by an Aretha Franklin cover alongside Mick Jaggar on vocals and Clinton on tamborine.

  38. Pumped says:

    I wish the Fire did promo stuff that cool

  39. Waterlewd says:

    Hah! A clue, a clue! I thought the announcement date is the 14th because it is one day before the window opens. But, could be a nice marketing trick.

  40. geeosphere says:

    what 50 names were there? i thought the rumor mill was at most 2 names?

  41. DanO says:

    You all are forgetting about Grown A$$ Man… Eddie Johnson!

  42. heyo says:

    i hate to say it but the second dp is rafa marquez

  43. Seth says:

    Thierry Henry and Luis Suarez

  44. Juan Pablo Angel says:

    but…but…I thought I was the super star…

  45. JavaLavaJoe says:

    Grrr…didn’t get here soon enough. Brilliant and not just because I wanted to say it!

  46. JavaLavaJoe says:


  47. PC says:

    Anyone have any Gals DP rumors? (sans Ronaldinho because I just can’t see it happening)The front office has remained very tight lipped.

  48. JavaLavaJoe says:

    The Argies sure are going to miss Diego Maradona when he suits up for RedBulls!

  49. Dave says:

    It’s Paul the Octopus.

  50. Mark says:

    Red Bull has also sent something to my cell phone so I’ll be one of the first to know as a valued season ticket holder. Have to admit I don’t ever remember giving them permission to send anything to my phone, but what the hell…

    Looking forward to watch Thierry Henry play with a recently rejuvenated JPA.

  51. dinomitedan says:

    ronaldo and donovans babies boy’s

  52. Josh D says:

    Ze Roberto added and a new keeper would immediately make them the best team in MLS.

    Not sure there’s enough ego room for both Henry and Angel – wouldn’t think twice about betting Angel is gone in the off season.

  53. joe says:

    So, would the new DP be ready to play on the 17th against the Crew?

  54. Josh D says:

    Haha! That little bastard is making strides in the game!

  55. Ruud the Guud says:

    Alexi Lalas!

  56. Cory C says:

    I wish the Fire were getting a DP!

  57. A Guest says:

    Just imagine the moves you could do with all those legs. And when you need some misdirection? Squirt ink everywhere!

  58. RK says:

    Howard Stern

  59. patrick says:

    nothing we’ve seen from Angel has suggested that he’s got any ego, let alone a big enough one to screw things up with Henry. My guess is he’s thankful for the help and will now see significantly less attention paid to him, which will allow him to do more.

  60. jake says:

    Freddy Adu!

  61. Smirking Kitten says:

    I do not think players like Adu, Beasley, or Johnson would receive this much hype…we all know it is Henry.

  62. patrick says:

    well presumably they asked for your #, and you provided it. I’m not a fan of marketing by text, but it’s not like it’s out of the blue..

  63. Frankie Ballz says:

    Cristiano Ronaldo’s American child from a surrogate mother that I hope will declare his allegiance to Team USA in 18 years.

  64. Jake says:

    Henry. I am just hopeful they just introduce him and not hold a one hour special asking him questions about pressure, how him joining with JPA and possibly another makes them an immediate contender, and how those back in Europe will question his decision.

  65. baquito alyeska says:

    Gunther Amadeus Matthaus

    …or Jorge Campos.

  66. Beandog says:

    LeJon Brames.

  67. I hate the Sounders says:

    Did you ever vote for Man of the Match? That’s the only way they could have gotten my#.

  68. ZacIndy says:

    knowing our luck, he’d want to play keeper.

  69. Beandip says:

    It’s Thierry Henry

  70. C Jordan says:

    They are promoting Roy Miller to DP Status, that guy on the back of the Red Bull paper thing they gave away looks just like Miller!

  71. ec says:

    That seems crazy to suggest he would suffer through last season with that putrid team and leave now that they add talent. And when have we ever seen Angel throw a tantrum or go seriously ego trippin’?

  72. CSD says:

    I heard it was a French striker but I heard it will be Anelka. He was asked to leave Europe. That’s what I heard. Yah, yah, yah that’s what I heard.

  73. CSD says:


  74. CSD says:


  75. slavetothemusic says:

    I can a see a DeLorean pulling up with marty and the doc coming out to unveil Franz Beckenbauer. Having contacted him right after lifting the world cup in 74.

  76. Duh says:


    Actually, I understand that this exciting signing is actually none other than Darren Sawatsky, former king of the garbage goals at New England.

  77. Frankie Ballz says:

    “Where were going, there are no roads.”

    On an unrelated note, I hope ESPN goes out of business and Lebron James blows out his knee right before the start of the season.

  78. red boolean logic says:

    oooh ahhh cantona!

  79. Paul (not the octopus) says:

    Vladislav Bogicevic

  80. More C's says:

    Another sad Cavalier fan.

  81. BetaMale says:

    LOL. Its his team now! Stand aside!

  82. inkedAG says:

    Clinton plays sax. I personally would love to see this for the pure cheese factor. :)

  83. davidaubudavid says:

    That is an entertaining movie. Don’t know if many people get the reference.

  84. Dakota says:

    It’s Jozy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahahaa Imagine Jozy up top with Henry, unstoppable.

  85. Gus Keri says:

    I don’t understand. How come there were 100 rumors for 50 players? You mean some players had more than one rumor?

    I heard one rumor said that Thierry Henry is the next DP and the next rumor said he was fired few weeks later for calling for a strike agianst Backe.

  86. i was thinking of going with captain guiche and the shrimp shack shooters but that would have been much more obscure


  87. nam says:

    I’ve got a spare sarcasm meter if you need it.

  88. DC Josh says:

    Cristiano Ronaldo.

    He is “vacationing” in NYC.

    Will the Jersey Shore have enough hair gel?

  89. seth says:

    angel is pure class

  90. METRO_MANIAC says:


  91. Machista Gay says:

    The sidewalk by the stadium has a number 14 jersey sprayed on the sidewalk in several spots with what I believe something in french written on it..what woot?!

  92. Never First says:

    This is the worst surprise announcement ever. Red Bulls need to take some lessons from LeBron and leak some false information to throw everyone off their scent.

  93. Jq says:

    Been hearing it’s not actually Henry, like we all suspected, but actually Shola Ameobi..

  94. PsuedoNEmous Commenter says:

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means…. I’ll give you my word as a Spaniard that it’s actually Cescie F. in a surprise undercover move.

  95. Jimbo, Brooklyn says:

    I heard it was Zidane.

  96. JW says:

    The Red Bulls will announce that they have signed the most effective American Striker alive: Brian McBride

  97. Lil' Zeke says:

    better to sign one of the dead ones zing

  98. Chris says:

    It’s Eric Wynalda!

  99. MiamiAl says:

    Luciano Emilio!

  100. BarcaGirl says:

    it’s me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ^_^

  101. Nic D "The Texas 2 Stepper" says:

    Anybody want a peanut!

  102. Nic D "The Texas 2 Stepper" says:

    RBNY deserve a HAND if they can get those two guys!

    Get it … I said HAND, as in HAND ball. I’m so clever 😉

  103. Jose says:

    Will there be an ESPN “The Decision” show? we all know it is not Lebron!

  104. fischy says:

    That’s uncommon thinking.

  105. fischy says:

    If you hurry, you can have a funny bone transplant.

  106. fischy says:


    Only if they bring back Karvallas and Malin to do the games.
