Preseason over! But now the real work begins

Posted on 25 March 2010 by ASN Staff

New York Red Bulls midfielder Luke Sassano completed his second season with the organization in 2009. In this, his fourth guest column for ASN, he wraps up the final stage of the team’s preseason. Sassano’s other columns can be viewed here.

With the final whistle of the Santos game, the preseason has officially come to an end.
Three preseason trips, two snow storms avoided and an undefeated record; I would say that this preseason has been a success. But now the real work begins.

As exciting as the Red Bull Arena grand opening was, I have a feeling we can expect the same–perhaps even a more hightened atmosphere–this weekend against Chicago in the season opener. Winning against a team of the caliber of FC Santos felt great, but we know that the real business starts on Saturday. The confidence in the locker room is great; we really believe that we are building something special here. The support of the fans has been exceptional– we really do have the best fans in MLS.

The stage is set, the atmosphere is set, and the excitement is set as the season is starting on schedule. What a way to open Red Bull Arena! But that’s only the beginning of what we hope and are confident will be a successful season.
