Mike Petke would kindly like Red Bulls fans to make tonight a “cathedral of fury” for Sporting KC


The first time I really spent time in a cathedral of fury, I remember being quite intimidated.

In a video statement to fans before his New York Red Bulls host Sporting KC in Thursday night’s knockout playoff game, head coach Mike Petke is hoping for a fired-up crowd to make the evening even more pressure-packed for the opponent.

The game should be a good one, with Sporting KC knowing they have new life as the defending MLS Cup champions and New York wanting to put its stamp on the trophy in what could be Thierry Henry’s final season in Major League Soccer (and on any professional playing field).

Here’s the video. Enjoy:

So who do you have tonight: the Red Bulls or the champs?
