MLS: Colorado Rapids 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 were my reactions to New York City FC’s huge 4-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids:

First Half

1’: Ismael Tajouri-Shradi almost put us up there

3’: Wait, is Alex Ring really playing center back right now?

8’: This is a strange formation. I still don’t know where everyone is playing.

11’: Some beautiful attacking there

22’: IT’S DAVID VILLA DAY!!! 1-0

31’: City still in control of this one

35’: Alex Callens — Peruvian Pirlo confirmed?

45+2: Really good half from the boys. Would like to see a few more goals, though.

Second Half

49’: Ronald Matarrita is back! 2-0 NYC

56’: MAXI MORALEZ!!! The goals are flowing like wine!

60’: NYC might have a fourth goal in their pocket

66’: Medina almost banged one in. He could use a goal to get back into form

74’: Did I mention it was David Villa Day? 4-0

77’: Two awesome saves from Sean Johnson. And we got a T-Mac sighting!

88’: Game has slowed down late. Both teams have accepted the result

Thank you for reading my mid-game ramblings. See you all next week!
