    Facts.

    Things that are standing out before the close of the first half:

    - Chanot's kick up to escape the corner was brilliant. The later turn in the defensive 3rd that almost resulted in a very dangerous turnover... not so brilliant.

    - Mitrita's first run on goal. :eyes:

    - J-Lew fighting through a slip to maintain control and then sending the ball over the top to Taty. :eyes:

    - Mitrita sharing the ball up top! The look for J-Lew twice was great. First time was a heavy touch from Mitrita and the second was a poor first touch from J-Lew. That will sort itself out if Dome keeps them together.

    - SEAN JOHNSON!

    This is a great pre-season match. These guys are getting after it.

    Can anyone match name/number for some of the new guys? On-line roster is no help.

    I assume 55 is Parks. How about 21 and 15?

    Can't complain too much. It's an in form European team against a team in pre-season that is playing a lot of guys who won't be on the roster in March.

    Still, the shaky defensive moments at the start are not good. The Swedes may not have finished those chances, but Martinez and Wright-Phillips surely will.

    EDIT:

    Forgot that Sweden is also in pre-season. The first team we played was not in pre-season, but AIK is.

    Sweden plays similar schedule to USA. AIK is preseason just like NYCFC.

    And I agree with you we looked reasonably good given our status.

    Both teams’ preseason. And they were champs of their league. That was a great pick for a friendly. And we showed well. I’m getting optimistic, it’s always bad when I do. mgarbowskimgarbowski DO NOT add a 70 point line to the chart!!!

    Optimism is fine. Just don't predict anything positive, especially with confidence.
