I just assumed no news came out because it would be awkward to write something like: final score NYCFC 3, - [name pending litigation] 2

I'm not gonna say I'm disappointed, because I have a feeling Ronny is trying to get the team minutes without overdoing it. He probably told them to go light
possible. the game was two 30 min halves. This is common in pre season but normally at the start of it not as the last game before official tournament.

I’m feeling like the glass half empty type but there is nothing about this preseason that shows Me this team is remotely ready to win a game that counts in a weeks time.
I hope you optimists can say I told you so next Thursday night.

We havent been good in past pre seasons only winning 1 or 2 games. im not saying well come out swinging but if anything this is the norm. its harder this time maybe because we cant see how the team is functioning and all opinions are being based on the result. shit we lost to atletico san luis when they were a second division team 3-0.

plus we going against another debutant in san carlos who also is not playing in their own stadium. if anything this is the best match up we could of asked for the CCL considering the circumstances.

There's no evidence either way.
  • we haven't been able to watch since the first 2 games
  • the lineups are a mishash both for us and our opponents
  • preseason games, indeed all friendlies or scrimmages, have an extremely weak correlation to regular season success in every sport.
In the absence of such info, happiness is a choice. Actually, it usually is.

There was some twitter chatter about injuries in yesterday’s game and seems like the tweet was deleted. Parks, Mata, ITS and Maxi were mentioned as injured.

yikes if this is true.

Depends on what "injured" means though.

Injured in preseason has a totally different meaning than injured in the regular season. There are tons of examples throughout other sports of the same.

Could be that they didn’t see the field because of an injury designation.
