Bradley Wright-Phillips on prospect of Josef Martinez breaking his MLS goals record: 'I love it'

ATLANTA -- New York Red Bulls forward Bradley Wright-Phillips says he loves it that Josef Martinez is closing in on his Major League Soccer single-season goal-scoring record.

Wright-Phillips scored 27 in the 2014 season, putting him atop the league's record books, alongside Chris Wondolowski (2012) and Roy Lassiter (1996). Atlanta United striker Martinez has already found the back of the net 24 times, and the Five Stripes still have another 11 matches to play this season.

And Wright-Phillips, speaking...

Bradley Wright-Phillips uses two-shirt celebration after 100th MLS goal

Wednesday night was a special one for New York Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, and he pulled out a nifty celebration to match the occasion.

Sitting on 99 MLS goals heading into the trip to D.C. United and their brand-new stadium, Audi Field, the RBNY legend was hungry to become the fastest player in Major League Soccer history to score a century of goals.

It took him less than two minutes on a rainy night to make history.

When Jesse Marsch became the New York Red Bulls coach in 2015, Bradley Wright-Phillips had just completed one of the most impressive goal-scoring seasons in Major League Soccer history: 27 goals in 32 games. But Marsch wanted more from his talented striker.

Marsch was shifting the Red Bulls toward a more high-tempo, high-intensity brand of soccer that pressed and squeezed their opponents. To do this, he needed his best player to buy in and become a leader.

"It wasn't going to be possible for...

How is each team looking heading into this game?

Jeff Carlisle (@JeffreyCarlisle): Six points from four league matches doesn't exactly show that a team is in top form, but for the New York Red Bulls, it has to be put in context. Manager Jesse Marsch has been digging...

Bradley Wright-Phillips' goal-scoring prowess makes him one of MLS' very best

Bradley Wright-Phillips talks New York Red Bulls' preseason preparations, motivations ahead of this season and more.

Bradley Wright-Phillips has been here before.

Having hit a league-record-equaling 27 goals in 2014, Wright-Phillips could have been forgiven for expecting a little respect. Instead, he was popularly painted as the fortunate beneficiary of Thierry Henry's genius, and even slighted for his efficiency in "only" scoring the amount he did. The thinking was that Wright-Phillips would struggle without Henry.

Instead, he has thrived, becoming the first MLS player to manage a second 20-plus goal season and...
