‘Knee-Jerk Reactions’ is Hudson River Blue’s series of what we were thinking throughout the match. We’ll share our unfiltered thoughts on the game at hand — no editing, no revisions. Just raw, pure emotion.
Here is what I thought of New York City FC’s scrappy contest against the New England Revolution, in which both teams got a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw in Foxborough, MA.
3’: Defensive turnovers like that are so 2016
10’: How many fouls is that now?
11’: *deep sigh*
17’: Can we PLEASE get out of our own half!?
19’: Two good chances stopped cold. At least we have a bit of life, I guess
31’: Ben Sweat doesn’t look like his normal self
36’: Ebenezer Ofori is so hot and cold
39’: Almost went down by two right there
45’: We are just so damned wasteful right now
46’: Streamers are stupid. Fight me
51’: What a sexy counter-attack leading to a goal! 1-1
63’: One step forward, two steps back. Down 2-1
67’: I wonder how long it takes for Vieira to make a sub today
75’: Ismael Tajouri-Shradi is something special. Great finish!
79’: Still no subs, and we are approaching the final ten minutes
87’: Vieira, you do know you have seven other players, right?
90’: Anti-climactic finish. Seemed too content with just a point, but I’ll take it I guess
Thank you for reading my rambling, mid-game thoughts. I’ll have my apologies at the ready.
