MLS: Real Salt Lake at New York City FC Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

“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 dominant 4-0 win against Real Salt Lake on Wednesday:

First Half

2’: There’s that vintage Jo Inge Berget touch

4’: I love you, Sean Johnson

9’: I really want Ronald Matarrita to prove himself tonight

10’: NYC are firmly in control of this one

12’: Ismael Tajouri-Shradi is on fire! 1-0

15’: Mata was flirting with a goal there

20’: We look world class right now

28’: Continue domination from NYCFC

30’: PENALTY! Maxi Moralez converts. 2-0

36’: Jesus Medina with those sexy skills on the endline

41’: A VIKING GOAL! 3-0

45’: What a half. One of the best I’ve ever seen from this team

Second Half

47’: Nice to see you again, SeanJohn

54’: You gotta make that, Maxi!

59’: Here comes David Villa!

66’: I want Medina to score one of those so bad

70’: Ebenezer Ofori gets his first for City! 4-0

78’: Villa usually makes those

87’: None of Villa’s chances have been great. But I expect some rust from him

90’+2: What a performance! Still unbeaten.

Thank you for indulging my ramblings. See you next week!
