It certainly is MLS Cup or bust for the New York Red Bulls.

EPL side Everton has announced that midfielder Tim Cahill is going to be transferred to the Red Bulls, pending a physical and paperwork. Cahill will likely become New York’s third Designated Player – should somehow he is not – then New York got one hell of a steal.

According to the BBC, the teams agreed on a transfer fee of £1 million.

He has played 278 times for Everton since his move from Millwall in 2004, scoring 68 goals. An Australian international with 55 caps, he has scored 24 times for his country.

New York is totally stacked at this point. Between Kenny Cooper, Sebastien Le Toux, Thierry Henry, Dax McCarty, Rafa Marquez, Wilman Conde, and others, this club is set for a MLS Cup run or nothing else.

    I like this move, shows NY is serious about winning MLS cup. The only concern I have is that MLS cup winners aren’t built over night. Now one can argue that Backe has been building this team for a while, but if you look at the majority of the players on this team now, they have all been recent acquisitions. Starting with Conde to Cooper and even Holgersson this year to Pearce, Gaudette and Letoux midseason to now Cahill, it will be hard for this team to continue their winning rthym, i mean they’ve had a run earlier in the season and now beginning to once again, but how does this change the chemistry. Also these are aging DPs who might have a year or two left of good football in them. So i have to agree it is MLS cup or bust.

    Hell, at this rate they’re just gonna forgo defense and blitz their way to Shield contention

    I think this is a smart move for both Cahill and the NYRBs. Tim Cahill gets to live and play in a big market in America and may be a cheaper DP than others on the market (ala Kaka or Ireland). Also I think Cahill can still play and although he is more attacking minded this guy comes back to defend and has some great foot skills. I think NY not only has to win the East but should push for a chance to host MLS Cup at Red Bull Arena. They have the depth and the attacking players to do it. Go for that supporters shield Red Bulls…
