Took all the way to the 33rd minute for San Antonio to score.

Team looked strong the first 15 minutes.

Another home game with less than a full bench. Hotbed area of talent and they stress getting the academy kids time yet go into most matches with less than a full bench or 2 keepers on the bench. Not a professional program in the slightest.

Attendance at MSU: My son's 5year old team has more people show up and I'm not sure I'm exaggerating.

The ref is handing out cards like candy. Roid rage.

Our academy goalkeeper punched a corner kick into our own goal... ESPN Not Top 10 worthy. Otherwise, he's been decent.

Ref continues to hand out cards (up to 8 in the 64th). First of the second yellow goes to San Antonio.
Zajec pulls us within 1.
Former NYRBII standout, Chris Lema, joined Marcus Epps on the field for San Antonio.

Mathias Jorgensen off in the 76th minute. Still has one goal all season.

Final 2-1. Lost 9 of our last 10.
4 wins, 4 draws, 15 losses. 53 goals allowed. Second worst in a 31 team league.

But they're learning and developing, and, hopefully, having fun, and that's what really matters.

Remember when there were all these garbage MLS reserve teams in the USL that we used to destroy week after week? A bunch of those just folded.

 

We are that now.

Match today against Tim Howard owned Memphis 901 at MSU at 1p.

Memphis only won one of their last 8, so there may be a chance today. Going to bring my son to this one.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Tombul is really bad. Legit stuck out his arm to lead to a PK. Marcucci dove the wrong way. Down 1-0 in the 22nd.

2-0 off a corner. Tombul doesn't clear it. Zajec was 2 yards off the post he was supposed to be covering. Again, Zajec has no business playing CB.

I'm sitting behind the net and our own guys are at each other's throats on nearly every play today. Sowe, Egbo, and Marcucci ripping into Zajec, Edelman and Castillo.

Edelman second yellow in 39th. Already looked like we were playing down one.

66th minute - Tombul fouls just outside the box. Marcucci saves it from being 3-0.

3-0 in 79th.

3-0 final. Local player, Kyle Murphy had 2 goals in front of a bunch of family/friends.

4 wins, 4 draws, 16 losses.
1 win, 10 losses in the last 11. Averaging less than 1 goal per game, giving up just shy of 3 per game in that span.

Nice work, Eric.

I hope they find a good mix next season so that some of these academy kids can see what it's like to win a bit at the pro level.

This year has been brutal. 50% of the teams in our division make the playoffs and with 8 matches left, if we drop any points or Charlotte wins any of their last 9 we are mathematically eliminated from the playoff race.

The fact that they haven't signed a domestic centerback after moving Egbo out right when Zalinsky went to college and using Rafanello or Knapp as the right back when Egbo isn't around, Castillo or Zajec as centerbacks or continuing to start a very poor Emir Tombul, just proves they have zero interest in winning.

Great work.

Will you have an update coming out on the players for NYRB2 and the academy as you often do?  

Appreciating the good work!
