100 Caps For Villa and a Grand Welcome for Tinnerholm / Ep 159 / Blue City Radio

Episode 159:

Yankee Stadium welcomed the NYCFC crowd for the first time in 2018.  Almost 26,000 were treated to solid display of Patrick Vieira’s vision of NYCFC’s style.  While the game wasn’t perfect and the Galaxy were able to create some chances, NYCFC dictated the tempo of the game up until the final 15 minutes.

Mike, Jon and J.R. discuss the key plays to the game.  J.R. draws a line in the sand over the play of Rodney Wallace and for once Mike defends Wallace and his contributions to the club.  In the end NYCFC was good enough to hold on to the narrow 2-1 margin for the Home Opening victory.
