    Used to enjoy the Aussie stuff with Mooy, Fornarelli (sp), that lad we sent to Celtic & even Cahill but couldn't name you any players or even the manager now. I tend to watch them when they play but NYC, once Patrick V, Lampard & Villa left I've not bothered with them, dosen't help they play at stupid o'clock UK time mostly.

    Have seen a few of their games this season and they play some great stuff going forward, but their defence is fucking comical at best and
    fucking criminal at worst.

    I think a bit of that has been intentional. The NYCFC fans are largely not happy with the CFG ownership and hate being referred to as a feeder for City etc. They are building a new young team with some older heads and its paying off.

    Been really interesting to see Torrent taking the reigns after years alongside Pep.

    When they play withJohnson he tends to stiffen up the defence.

    They wouldn't have a club at all without CFG ownership.

    Correct, however the locals aren't exactly known as the nicest bunch of people around.

    Couple things. We are definitely frustrated with CFG ownership because I mean, we play in a baseball stadium. And there is no stadium of our own in sight.
    But no one out here calling them to sell or anything. They are doing a good job putting a decent product on the pitch. Just need a stadium.

    We don't hate being referred to as feeders to Man City, because we KNOW we are not feeders to Man City. We would have to have something Man City would want to take for us to be feeders. Our dear rivals, Red Bulls, are the real feeder club.
