Knee-Jerk Reactions: San Jose vs. New York City

Hudson River Blue’s real-time reactions to NYCFC’s 2-1 victory over the Quakes

MLS: New York City FC at San Jose Earthquakes Kelley L Cox-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 comeback win against the San Jose Earthquakes:

First Half

PG: Why is Maxime Chanot wearing the captain’s armband?

PG: Oh, that’s why.

2’: Perfect.

6’: Absolutely no cohesion in the midfield whatsoever. Ebenezer Ofori looks very unimpressive thus far

14’: Is it too late to give Jo Inge Berget and Ofori back to whoever gave them to us?

15’: Well, that was almost really bad

17’: “Saad Abdul-Saddam”

18’: Ismael Tajouri-Shradi is a beast

24’: Why is Berget out wide right there?

36’: If Saad is hurt, that’s big trouble

Second Half

46’: Jesus Medina now playing in the middle


55’: We’re gonna concede again at this rate

59’: Maxi Moralez strikes again! 2-1 City

73’: That looked really bad

77’: I don’t like it when we play defensively

79’: Sean Johnson deserves a raise after this

87’: What is everyone fighting about?

90+5: Maxi could have put it out of reach right there

FT: That was a long one. Good job, though

Thank you for reading my rambling, mid-game thoughts. I’ll have my apologies at the ready.
