Knee-Jerk Reactions: New York City vs. DC United

HRB’s reactions to NYCFC’s 1-1 draw to DC

MLS: D.C. United 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. These were our unfiltered thoughts as they played out in real time — no editing, no revisions. Just raw, pure emotion.

Here were my reactions to New York City FC’s 1-1 draw against D.C. United:

First Half

2’: I see you, Wayne Rooney

3’: Amagat still has that class forward distribution, I see (sarcasm)

11’: It’s good to see Sands starting. If only we could somehow convince Domé to give Lewis a shot

21’: I really hope this isn’t a repeat of Wednesday

25’: James Sands has fouled Rooney... and gotten away with it!

27’: Ooooof...

38’: That wasn’t a foul. We should be up 1-0 right now

45’+3: We should be up. But, you know, whatever...

Second Half

51’: I honestly have no idea what was just called


64’: Just throw in the towel at this point.

68’: We. Can’t. Score.

71’: Where’s Lewis? Please, something needs to happen

77’: Just like last week, I have lost all care for this game.

81’: Bye, Amagat. Stay away, please.

85’: FINALLY! Can we please win now?

90’+3: Firstly, that sucked. Second, we should have been given another minute of stoppage time due to Acosta’s snail walk off the pitch. But whatever. This is trash.
