NYCFC Avenges June Loss to Top Seeded New England 2-0

New York. - Taty Castellanos continues his hot run with a pair of goals as the Gents in Blue snap the Revolution's 9 game unbeaten streak 2-0; moving into 4th place. With New England playing with a depleted roster with potential MVP Carles Gil out injured & Matt Polster and Gustavo Bou not coming in until the second half New York took advantage in the 31st and 55th minute all while limiting the Revolution to 1 single shot on goal.

NYCFC's Road Woes Continue, Fall To Rival Philadelphia 1-0

New York. - The Gents in Blue struggled offensively once again at any stadium not called Yankee Stadium as they fell to their Eastern Division rivals the Philadelphia Union by the score of 1-0. It was a huge night for Philly's Alexander Bedoya; scoring his first goal of the season on a header at the 67th minute that proved to be the difference maker and moving the Union into a points tie with NY (albeit with one more match played) on the season. Frankly it was a fantastic bang bang 1 timer from Kai Wagner to Bedoya but it was also a clear miss by Defender Malte Amundsen who was completely unaware that Bedoya was coming up alongside him and knew his mistake immediately based on the reaction.

NYCFC Has Two Goals Overturned, Ousted From Leagues Cup in Shootout

New York. - When I first gathered my thoughts on what to write for this article I had a ton of ideas running through my head. The excitement of PUMAS fans traveling from Mexico, LA, Houston and all over. Admitted Dodger fans and Astros fans putting their mutual contempt aside for a night to root for their favorite soccer team. That's the first thing I saw when I got to the stadium. This match got me hyped to true soccer energy of obsessed fans outside the states. I feed off that big time, and I was pumped!

NYCFC: The Tie That Felt Like A Loss

New York. - Tonight we saw a tale of two halves with the Gents In Blue. A first half that started out as well as could be asked for by jumping out to an immediate 2 goal advantage. First there was Santiago Rodriguez in his first ever start making his presence known by scoring a goal in the 12th minute. Then there was Izzy Tajouri-Shradi with his 7th of the year at the 21st minute, tying him with Medina for the team lead. By the end of the first half it went about as well as could be expected. Then the wheels promptly fell off to start the second half which is where I want to focus my attention; because it's not the points you gain, but the points you DON'T that make a greater difference.

NYCFC Scoring Struggles Outside The Bronx Continue; Tie Chicago 0-0.

New York. - In covering this team, there is a stark difference in the offensive output for the Gents In Blue at Yankee Stadium versus literally anywhere else on the planet. By comparison, NYCFC has scored 15 goals in four matches at Yankee Stadium compared to 15 goals in 12 matches elsewhere, including at “home” at Red Bull arena. While I think it bodes well for the future with the increased matches they have upcoming at Yankee Stadium, this is an issue I’ve addressed previously and one that will absolutely burn them if and when they have to take the playoffs on the road.

NYCFC Jumps 3 Spots To 3rd In East With Big Win Against Columbus

New York. - This article is going out to every team in major league soccer not called NYCFC: Be afraid, be very afraid. After an up and down season the Gents in Blue have found their stride, finally turning their barrage of shots on net into goals. With last night's 4-1 dismantling of visiting Columbus in front of the Yankee Stadium crowd, this is a team that is showing results from that effort. And the rest of the league no doubt is taking notice.

5 Goals By 5 Players – NYCFC With A Huge Win

New York. - One of the advantages I have working and writing for Spanglish Sports World is we're allowed a little more leeway with regards to our personalities when writing these articles. So as a fan of NYCFC and covering the team, yes I have a hometown favoritism. I admit it. So tonight's match against Orlando made me, a fan, happy. 5 goals by 5 players and an obscene 15 to 3 ratio of shots on target made this easily the most one sided match this team has had this year. From minute one this was a match going NY's way. Orlando was all over the place; burning a ton of energy that would serve to burn them as the match went on. It took 40 minutes for the first goal to get scored; a left footed rocket off the foot of Jesus Medina for his team leading 7th of the season and almost equally important, NOT giving up a tying goal going into the half. That's been an issue with this team in the past; allowing your opponents to carry momentum into the second half with a late tying goal.

NYCFC Gets A Much Needed Rebound Win – Overtake Montreal 1-0

New York. - The Gents From New York managed to get their revenge on Montreal in front of 2,873 at “home” after that horrific match two weeks with one of the unlikeliest of goals a team can score. With the game of course knotted at 0-0 NY Goalkeeper (and winner of his first game) Luis Barraza took a goal kick from his six yard line. On the ensuing bounce, it confused Defender Zorhan Bassong allowing Ismael Tajouri-Shradi enough time to lob the ball over Montreal Goalkeeper James Pantemis head and into the net. Was it pretty? Nope. But does it count? Absolutely yes, and that's what matters most. In the end, this was the difference maker; however as always there's room for improvement.
