Today’s episode Chris P @NYCFCFan and Chris M @_ChrisFC who we all know as Perpetual Student on the NYCFC sub-reddits joins the show to discuss the historic first playoff match New York City FC had against Toronto FC.
After the 2-0 loss many questions popped up in regards to Patrick Vieira’s decision before and during the match. These questions all start off with Patrick’s starting 11 lineup choice. We provide our input as to why Patrick started Mikey Lopez, Federico Bravo, Eirik Johansen and how all three fared.
During one portion of the game David Villa is seen in mid-air kicking a Toronto FC players back. The ref did not call a foul but upon review the MLS still did not suspend Villa for that incident. Why not?
Where there’s smoke there fire….but did a only-players meeting really take place between New York City FC even after many players themselves said it never happened?
Chris P also goes in depth about his experience at the press box section in BMO Field and the poor food options there.
Leg 2 against Toronto FC is Sunday at 6:30pm. It’s a big day for New York City FC as it’s the first home playoff match and the first ever playoff match played in New York for an MLS team! Can NYCFC make it to the next round? How will public transportation be with the New York City Marathon taking place the same day?
Another topic on our miscellaneous bucket is the #suppportyourcity movement you see all across social media. It’s great promotion and a good step to creating a better relationship with political figures and the men and women who service our City. Especially when we need to find a place to build a stadium.
We wrap up the show mentioning the National call ups Ronald Matarrita and Tony Taylor both have for their respective countries. Jack Harrison being protected from the expansion draft due to his graduation from Generation Adidas and the yearly honors the MLS gives away in which Villa, Frank Lampard and Harrison have been nominated. Oh and we play Trick or Treat with a couple of questions.
