Knee-Jerk Reactions: New York City vs. Montreal

HRB’s real-time reactions to NYCFC’s 1-1 draw against the Impact

MLS: New York City FC at Montreal Impact Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

“Knee-Jerk Reactions” is Hudson River Blue’s series of what we were thinking throughout the match. These were our unfiltered thoughts as they played out in real time — no editing, no revisions. Just raw, pure emotion.

Here were my (angry) reactions to New York City FC’s 1-1 draw against the Montreal Impact:

First Half

1’: Already giving up free kicks in dangerous areas

5‘: I feel Villa could’ve toned down the skills right there

13’: (snoring sounds)

18’: Don’t day I didn’t tell you so! Berget is back, baby! 1-0

20’: It’s been ruled an own goal, but does it even matter?

23’: Ignacio Piatti is one scary individual

27’: Welp

39’: Have NYCFC even generated a really good shot this game?

43’: “One, two three, four... no more.”

44’: Yikes, that was close.

45’+1: Villa almost put us up there. Gotta give props to Bush for that save.

Second Half

63’: Ummmm, Ofori for Berget? Does Domé know this game is tied?

65’: Dammit. Close, but no cigar

68’: Is Tajouri-Shradi gonna be the new Lewis?

71’: #WeAmagatTheWrongGuy

80’: I’m doubting our ability to win this game

84’: This game is looking scarier and scarier

87’: Bailed out on that one

90’+4: What a joke.
