Winning Without El Capitan, Kiera Smith on NYCFC and Mata Suffers a Setback / Ep 161 / Blue City Radio

Epsiode 161:

Some fans were already on their way to the stadium when the news broke that David Villa and Anton Tinnerholm were late scratches to NYCFC line-up.  Neither player were seen at training earlier in the week, but the hopes were that they would be fit by game time.  In previous years this news would rattle the NYCFC faithful, but with the creative play of new DP Jesus Medina and the promise of seeing a longer run out by Ismael Tajouri-Shradi there was still hope in their hearts.

Mike and J.R. welcome Kiera Smith from MLS Female to  the show as the trio breakdown  the key plays of Saturday’s matchup.
