Updated Castrol Index Shows Big Gap for New York Red Bulls

+

The new league-wide Castrol Index numbers are up and there is both good news and bad. Thierry Henry is at the top of the list with fellow Red Bull Kenny Cooper listed at number five. Considering the number of goals the two have put away that's no surprise. However, the index is missing any other New York player not only in the top twenty-five or fifty, but only Rafa Marquez comes into the mix in the top one hundred at a lukewarm 94th. For those unfamiliar with the Castrol Index, now in its second year it "tracks every move on the field and assesses whether it has a positive or negative impact on a team’s ability to score or concede a goal." How does New York stack up against some of the strongest teams so far this season? Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake have a total of nineteen players in the top one hundred (ten and nine players, respectively).

New York Red Bulls Shut Out of Castrol Index Top Ten for Third Straight Week

+

Despite the offensive explosion against a depleted Colorado Rapids side, a New York Red Bulls player has yet to crack the top ten of the MLS Castrol Index entering the fourth week of play. At the top of the index are Kei Kamara, David Estrada, and Dominic Oduro, who have all opened the season with strong performances that have led Kansas City, Seattle, and Chicago to start the season undefeated. A favorable match-up against the Montreal Impact on Saturday may be just what Kenny Cooper and Thierry Henry, who already have five goals between them, need to make the top ten for the first time in 2012. Henry finished the 2011 season in third place just behind Chris Wondolowski and Alvaro Fernandez.

Agudelo Ready to Begin the Road to the London Olympics Tonight in Nashville

+

After a couple of weeks training together, the United States U-23 team is ready to start its bid to qualify for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London tonight against CONCACAF foe Cuba. New York Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo may play a large role determining whether the U.S. is one of the two countries that qualifies from the region that includes North and Central America as well as the Caribbean. After a good showing in a 2-0 win against Mexico's U-23 team in an exhibition on February 29th, the U.S. will hope to coast through their first three matches and keep their key players as rested and healthy as possible going into the knockout round next weekend. The match can be streamed live online tonight at 9 PM at UniversalSports.com. Team captain, Freddy Adu, tweeted earlier today: "Game day! Connect with you guys after the game." Shortly after, Agudelo tweeted about Brek Shea's toothbrush and posted a link for a looped video of a goal celebration with Joe Gyau. U.S. fans will hope that the budding soccer bromances will carry over onto the field tonight and result in a momentum building blow out of the Cuban team.

Castrol Index: Holgersson the Highest Rated Red Bull After Week 1

+

Move over Thierry Henry, there is a new player atop the New York Red Bulls in terms of the Castrol Index. Defender Markus Holgersson, despite what was widely considered to be a disappointing MLS debut against FC Dallas, is tied for 67th overall after opening weekend (note: three teams have still yet to play in 2012). The Castrol Index tracks players on-field movement and whether they contribute positively or negatively to goals scored and conceded. Theirry Henry finished third overall in 2011 only behind Chris Wondolowski and Alvaro Fernandez.
