New York City FC: MLS united New York City by dividing it

MLS has been making a point to establish rivalries with their recent expansions. No expansion exemplifies that more than New York City FC. Ever since the inception of the league, New York has had a major part to play. Although, to be fair, it had always been a case like in the NFL, where the […]

NYCFC slowly turning the corner under Patrick Vieira

New York City FC are currently enjoying their best form under new head coach Patrick Vieira and perhaps the best form of the expansion club’s entire existence.

New York City FC: Patrick Vieira shooting himself in foot

Sir Alex Ferguson, the greatest manager to have ever managed, had one all-encompassing rule that he followed no matter the circumstance: “Stay the course.” No matter who is questioning, no matter who disagrees, no matter who has a ‘better idea’, stay the course. How can you expect players to be consistent when you, as a […]

NYCFC, Kwadwo Poku

New York City FC has a Kwadwo Poku problem

Nobody gripped the New York City fan base last year quite like the Ghanaian, Kwadwo Poku. His undeniable athleticism was a welcome sight when compared to the often lackadaisical-looking antics of other, higher-profile players. Any time something went wrong, Yankee Stadium erupted with chants of “We Want Poku.” This year, those chants have gone unanswered. […]
