    Compared to other groups in NYC it’s not but 22,000 fills out a small town.

    The back four, featuring Ben Sweat, Alexander Callens, Maxime Chanot and Rónald Matarrita, can be a top defense again this year. There is a lot of reason to believe that they can improve as a unit.

    Homegrown Joe Scally, signed this preseason, is a 16-year-old outside back that has shown a lot of promise. He could get some chances over the course of the year to get a run of games.”

    Simple fact checks like this is what annoys me about coverage of this team. So many times an easily googled query is ignored and just assumed. This as well as Kristian’s lack of mention of Medina, calling for a signing of an additional winger, and calling for Lewis to be in the starting midfield are what make us feel like an afterthought for news sites.

    He forgot about Tin on the backline (starters were Sweat, Callens, Chanot, Mata). Didn’t mention Ofori and Sands as backup options if Parks can’t hold it down. Called Dru a forward, and isi a winger in the forwards section, but somehow Lewis was in the midfield section as a wide option. Weird analysis from someone who covers the team full time.

    If only the Athletic had hired a writer who knew the team, covered it since before it began, and was familiar with the roster.

    This is a great joke. It took me a second but well played.

    I like this team, I think they will, at the least, be 4th by seasons end, with a run in the playoffs. However, I do understand where the hesitancy lies. But it doesn’t help when the press can’t even figure out a realistic starting 11 the day before the season starts.

    Speaking of writers who know the team, I hope you guys have all heard by now about the NYCFC Forums tribute band known as The Outfield, but if not today's post by derek_villaderek_villa is a fun place to start.

    Just to reiterate, this is a tribute band, not to be confused with...

    true, but not sure if they legally can ban you unless you do something like get arrested or involved in some other altercation etc.

    The issue from the clubs point of view is it hasn’t happened in the stands. At least not recently. The last incident I remember goes back to the inaugural season. It was discussed here when Saun King tweeted about it back in October.
    Can you ban supporters from games who have hate group connections but haven’t committed illegal acts and aren’t causing any issues in the stadium?
    It’s not a hard call to make when one of them gets arrested for inciting violence or committing battery but to ban an entire group for affiliation is a tough call for the club.
    Those groups honestly could have been banned a while ago if the club took a hard stand in the inaugural season, they didn’t and now they’re in a bad spot.

    Jason Davis on the United States of Soccer on the radio picked Mitrita to be newcomer of the year ahead of Pity Martinez. Of course he also picked the pink cows for the cup ..

    I would imagine the Club could ban anyone they want.

    Are there any posters on here that are members of the NYC SC? They seem to be a problem.

    Los Templados also a problem? Wasn’t Jonathan Sanchez in charge of The Third Rail one year roxfontaineroxfontaine
