WELL APRIL HAS COME AND GONE (THE MOST RECENT ANTICIPATED DATE FOR START OF CONSTRUCTION) AND ONCE AGAIN THE RED BULL STADIUM HAS NOT BEGUN CONSTRUCTION. THAT MEANS THAT IN THE MAYORS TEN YEARS OF SERVICE TO HARRISON HE ACHIEVED BUILDING A HOTEL AND 300 TOWNHOMES IN WHICH HE SACRIFICED A WHOLE YEAR OF OUR CHILDRENS SPORTS DREAMS. 300 TOWNHOMES THAT HAVEN'T BEEN SOLD AND SOME BUYERS ARE EVEN PULLING OUT. THE PLANS FOR 2,000 MORE RESIDENT SPACES NOW MORE THAN EVER SEEMS LIKE A JOKE. I ALSO HEARD THAT WITHIN THE LLC COMPANIES THAT OWN THAT HOTEL YOU WILL FIND THAT RAY MCDONOUGH HAS AT LEAST A PART OF OWNERSHIP. IT SEEMS THE ONLY THING THE MAYOR HAS ACHIEVED IN HIS TEN YEARS IS DEEPER POCKETS.

Don't forget the fact that the hotel doesn't pay taxes.

Red Bulls fire coach

Mo Johnston

Mo Johnston was fired today as the head coach of the New York Red Bulls, the Major League Soccer team coming to Hudson County.

Assistant coach and former MLS player Richie Williams was named interim coach, team managing director Marc De Grandpre said. Williams' first game will be tomorrow night against the Columbus Crew at Giants Stadium.

The Red Bulls are in last place in the Eastern Conference with a 2-3-7 record. The two wins are tied with the Los Angeles Galaxy for worst in the league and the seven ties are a league high.

The firing also comes after the Red Bulls played one of their worst games of the season on Saturday in a 2-0 loss on the road to the Chicago Fire. It snapped a three-game unbeaten streak for the Red Bulls, who have had eight coaches in their 11-year history, most of them coming when the franchise was known as the MetroStars.

The name was changed this season after Red Bull Co. Ltd. bought the club from Anschutz Entertainment Group on March 9. The beverage company bought not just the team, but also naming rights and a 50 percent stake in the new stadium in Harrison, for more than $100 million. Construction on the stadium is expected to begin in August. :rolleyes::lol::D

Johnston took over as interim manager of the-then MetroStars when Bob Bradley was fired late last season. The former midfielder-forward for Scotland and Scottish teams Celtic and Rangers guided the team to two victories and a tie to qualify for the playoffs on the final day of the season.

After beating New England 1-0 in the opening game of the two-game series, the MetroStars were eliminated on aggregate goals when New England took the second game 3-1.

Johnston, who joined Bradley's staff as an assistant in 2003, was given the full-time coaching job in November by then-president and general manager Alexi Lalas, who since has left for a similar job with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Johnston has not had an easy first season, especially when his team got the lead.

Despite scoring first in seven of 12 games, New York only won one of those games. Two of the 12 games finished in scoreless ties. Of the three games in which they've fallen behind, the Red Bulls rallied once to win.

Johnston, who finished with a 4-3-8 mark in 15 regular-season games, also had disciplinary problems with midfielder Amado Guevara, the league most valuable player in 2004.

He was fined $4,000 and suspended for a game earlier this season for leaving the field after being replaced in the 55th minute of a tie against the Fire.
