Here. We. Go.

In less than one hour, we'll kick off the 2016 edition of the Hudson River Derby. New York City hosts the New York Red Bulls looking for their second home victory of the year. More importantly, a victory today would be New York City's first-ever in the Derby.

Coincidentally, today marks New York City FC's third birthday as a club. So will we be celebrating at the end of 90 minutes? Or will we be crying the rain down on the club's birthday?

Here's today's starting lineups for New York City and the Red Bulls.

Subs: Johansen (GK), Iraola, White, Harrison, Diskerud, Lampard. Yes, that Frank Lampard.

Subs: Reynish (GK), Lawrence, Baah, Davis, Muyl, S. Wright-Phillips, Veron

Oh, hai! We're glad you're here! Wipe your feet, mind the gap, and be sure to blindly subscribe to our YouTube Channel! While you're here, though, we have a few rules and regulations.

  • Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They're bad and they get us in trouble. Raf will be relegated to covering the Cosmos with Mike Petke. Sam will be thrown in a burlap sack and beaten with reeds. But seriously, they're illegal. So don't do it.
  • We have rules against "relentless negativity." Nobody likes a Negative Nancy or Doubtful Darlington, even if the team gets off to an awful start. Don't knee-jerk and post outlandish or hurtful things just because you're frustrated.
  • Along those lines, outright abuse of players or match officials is verboten. It's fine to say "wow, that's a bad call, match official," but it's NOT okay to direct copious amounts of abuse in the direction of said official over a call you did not like.
  • Treat other people in the match thread the way you would want someone else to treat your grandmother. Be nice. Observe Wheaton's Law. This is a community of fans, not an un-moderated message board.
Finally, while we don't have a rule against profanity, any language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted. Most importantly, though: HAVE FUN, tip your wait staff, and remember that we're all in this together


Happy birthday, dear Blues
