How did we do? A look back at our 22 predictions for 2022

We check on the predictions we made in February and WE’RE SO GOOD IT’S SCARY.

Way back in February, when New York City FC’s 2022 season was an adorable little toddler just learning how to nutmeg, the Hudson River Blue panel of experts gazed into our size-two crystal-clear ball and tried to envision what the future held for the Pigeons. What we saw surprised us, and turned out mostly to be true — in one form or another. 

Even though the 2022 season isn’t over yet – you might say that with the 2022 MLS Cup Playoffs about to begin it’s just hotting up – we’ll take a look back and see which predictions came to pass, which sorta happened, and which were completely stoopid.

22 predictions for 2022 fact-checked

1. Taty Castellanos will complete his move to a top-five European league during the summer transfer window. He’ll play to impress during the start of the season, becoming even less wasteful in front of goal knowing that every game will be scrutinized by the sporting directors of the biggest clubs in the world.
TRUE! It didn’t happen exactly as expected, but Castellanos bagged 13 goals before leaving in July, and is now a regular starter in La Liga.
