NYCFC Come Out Of The Break, Lose A Winnable Game

New York. - I hate it when I'm right sometimes. If you ask my wife it doesn't happen often, but it does happen on occasion. Watching last night's 3-2 loss by NYCFC as they (and Black Players For Change/team captain Sean Johnson celebrated Juneteenth, RESPECT) to the New England Revolution I kept thinking I hate it when I'm right. This team had the momentum, they had the chance to take an early lead and set the tone. In the first 20 minutes, A penalty kick by Castellanos in the 12th minute with a save by Revolution goalie Matt Turner (I'll discuss him in a bit) as well as 2 more on target by the 21st minute and this game had the makings of an impressive win; or a heartbreaking loss. With the team playing downhill and New England still without a shot of any kind by the 25th minute I remember commenting to my fellow Spanglish Sports World journalist Robin that giving up a goal after that kind of output is the absolute most emotionally crushing thing that can happen to a team. Fast forward LITERALLY 2 minutes later on a right foot volley by Revolution forward Gustavo Bou and just like that, NY is down 1-0. I hate when I'm right sometimes. Or maybe I'm just bad luck, they are 0-2-1 in the last three games I've been in the press box, I dunno.

The 3 Week Layoff: Past, Present and Future

New York. - Hang in there diehard NYCFC fans, the wait is almost over. The three week layoff before the season starts again is coming to an end. Let's recap: When last we left the team they came off an impressive come from behind 2-1 win over LAFC on the road to snap a 3 game winless streak, bringing their record to 3-2-2 & good for 4th place in the East. That game, as I covered a few weeks back was as big a win as head coach Ronny Delia has had since taking over at the start of last year, with them trailing 1 nil until the 70th minute, then a goal by Medina (his team leading 5th of the year) and a shorthanded goal at the 90th minute by Ismael Tajouri-Shradi pulled victory from the jaws of defeat. Holy Hannah, if they lost that game, 3 week breaks like this can be brutal to the psyche of a team.

Huge Win For NYCFC To Go Into The Break

New York. - After the past two MLS weekends, if there was a team that needed a win to go into the break it was NYCFC. The last two games saw disappointment for the gents in blue as they lost the lead in the second half not once but both games, turning a possible 6 points down to a measly single point. Against LA FC not only got that much needed win, but this time with a comeback win of their own, scoring a tiebreaker late while in fact being a man down.
