People complain about our FO and how bad it is to be an NYCFC fan (really at the end of the day most of the problems all lead back to people's annoyance with the stadium situation) but gosh, look around at some of the other teams in the MLS and it's clear we're not even close to the worst.

At least no one is trying to take our name away too. Then again, wouldn't it be nice to have our name taken away and re-branded with something original.

can't, it'll cost a heck of a ton extra to change flights, no? Moving flights is usually like that.
Depends what airline, what your status is (if any), and when you booked it.

I booked an international flight for completely the wrong week by accident and fortunately was able to benefit from a no fee for changes within 24hrs policy recently.

If nothing else, if it’s worth your time to get back for the game, call and plead your case to escalating managers until someone does you a solid. It’s the derby

i wasn't sure where to put this, so i'll put this here:


according to this, in 2 games, we are playing 13% of our passes as long balls. Granted, this includes a game where we were down 10 men for essentially the entire game, but as a possession team, I think we can do better. I would love to see what this number is at the end of the season. shame these stats aren't readily available for supporters to look up and analyze.

Am I desperate enough to watch NYCFC's e-sports guy play a game of FUT against the Whitecaps e-sports guy today?
