NYCFC Puts Up Strong Performance in a Cold Home Opener, Win 4-1

New York. - In just below freezing temperatures and intermittent rain and snow the Gents in Blue found the back of the net four times on the day they unveiled their championship banner with an impressive 4-1 victory over FC Montreal. Alexander Callens, Santi Rodriguez, Talles Magno & Thiago Andrade all scored as the team fired off 7 shots on goal to just 3. The team over it's first two MLS matches had failed to score a goal so the offensive burst was huge. Said coach Ronny Deila, “I expect goals from Talles, Thiago and Santi. They are good finishers and they are able as well. It’ll come more and more. It's a very good strength for the team that we have that we can score from different positions. We scored four today without Tati and Maxi scoring, and we know what those two can do so that's a strength for the team.”

New York. - On a night in L.A. Where expectations and excitement ran high at the start of the 2022 season, the New York City Football Club struggled to have their offense gel as they fell to the home Los Angeles Galaxy 1-0. The team, which impressed to start CONCACAF with a 2-0 and 4-0 win over Santos managed only one shot attempt on goal early on and was unable to hold possession throughout; testing goalkeeper Sean Johnson repeatedly until a goal in the 90th minute by the team's 2021 leading goal scorer Chicharitto gave the Galaxy the only score of the match. New York had a chance to tie in the 93rd minute but the shot by Heber went wide.

Rams and the Bengals: Battle of Feel Good Teams on Football's Biggest Stage

New York. - Back at the start of the NFL season as any seasons, football analysts, both professional and living room laid down their pics for who would enter Sunday's Super Bowl. For me, it was Tampa and Kansas City. An admittedly boring pick but one that many would assume would at least be plausible. And I came close to looking like a genius, with the Bucs narrowly missing by 3 and the Chiefs oddly blowing an 18 point lead at home bringing us to the final stretch with two teams that by all accounts, make you feel good to root for.

The NFL is Fading, and That’s a Shame

New York. - Over the last weekend the NFL had a playoff weekend the likes of which I don’t remember in nearly 40 years of being a fan. 4 games, three ending in a game winning field goal and the fourth ending in a game winning touchdown in overtime between two teams with some of the biggest fan bases in the league. 4 games, and a combined score differential of just 15 points (which beats the previous NFL record for this round of playoff action of 18) and gave old fans like me enthusiasm for next week and certainly helped new fans get into the game.
