Knee-Jerk Reactions: New York City vs. Red Bulls

Hudson River Blue’s real-time reactions to their 1-0 win over the Jersey Boys

MLS: New York Red Bulls at New York City FC Vincent Carchietta-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 1-0 triumph over the rival New York Red Bulls:

First Half

PG: No word has been given regarding Jo Inge Berget missing this game. He wasn’t listed on the injury report, and nothing has yet been announced prior to kickoff. Going with Rodney Wallace over Jonathan Lewis will undoubtedly cause some to scratch their heads. Let’s hope Dome knows something I don’t.

1’: Maxi Moralez out wide? Hmmm...

10’: This game has started off super anti-climactic. That’s not necessarily a bad thing

15’: Wallace being offsides there hurts

18’: DAMMIT! Someone score!

26’: We’re playing well. But if we don’t score first, this game could be trouble

35’: Ofori completely muffed that counter. Very poor decision.

45’2: Tied at half. C’mon, you Boys!

Second Half

46’: I’ve got that nervous feeling in my stomach

48’: Alex Callens and Ben Sweat both with big tackles early

58’: Didn’t expect to see Matarrita come on for ITS, especially this early. Oh well..

63’: Callens playing great tonight

67’: Ohhhh Rodney...

72’: So. Many. Offsides.

74’: That was scary

77’: Damn you, Robles

85’: YES!!!!!! Lewis, you earned that assist!

90’ Clutch stop from Sean Johnson

FT: THANK YOU!!!! Victory at last!
