Welcome to the NYCFC Fan Podcast. Today both Chris’ join the conversation while we record via Skype because I am currently in Rome, Italy. Ciao! I left the country after the horrendous performance New York City FC had against Toronto FC in an attempt to find cheap international talent.
All jokes aside, we discuss the awful playoff match NYCFC had in its first (of many we expect) home playoff matches and many questions are still left unanswered during a successful second season for New York City. We first breakdown the lineup which, at the eyeball test, is a best 11 vs 11 match up. Could Patrick Vieira have done anything different?
We then discuss whether or not we can blame the 5-0 loss on one player or a team as whole. During post game locker room talks we learn what many players said and how they felt during and after the match. We discuss our thoughts on Eirik Johansen’s performance and what we think of him moving forward. Is there a correlation between New York City FC playing poorly during big matches?
We move forward to the miscellaneous bucket where we talk about the three NYCFC players who have been called up for their respective National teams and the upcoming matches the United States Mens Nation Team has against Mexico and Costa Rica.
Next topic in our bucket is the MLS expansion draft plus the Superdraft. Who do we protect from the draft and what are our greatest needs? What do we do with Frank Lampard’s contract?
Sadly towards the end of the Skype call it appears that my connection was poor and the recording suffered. Unfortunately we did not know about this during the recording or else we would have stopped and continued later when connection was better. Still 45 minutes of content is better than zero content. Enjoy the episode and we’ll be back next week!
