The First Victory of 2022 and Some Inspiration from Ian Joy / Ep 354 / Blue City Radio
Episode 354: NYCFC was in a familiar situation on Tuesday night down in Costa Rica. For the second time in three official matches they’d be facing a team with less than it’s full squad of players and starters available for selection. The hosts for the first leg of the CCL opening round, Santos de Guapiles, would be without four key players due to a recent change in visa policies in Costa Rica. NYCFC would take full advantage of the situation and cruise to a 2-0 victory as the teams head to California for the home leg. This week Mike, J.R. and Mike Allen give their thoughts on the game. In the second segment, Ian Joy visits the guys to get the fans excited for the season as NYCFC looks to defend their championship title. The guys close out the show with some 2022 predictions and give their over / unders for the year.

A Chilly Reception In Canada for the USMNT / Ep / 352
Episode 352: Gregg Berhalter was oddly content with the US players’ performances on Sunday as the US lost 2-0 to Canada. Yes, the early goal conceded by the US was a self-inflicted wound, but the result was still not good enough and there is concern that the coach will be slow to correct errors with only four games remaining in the qualifying cycle. This week Mike, J.R. and Mike Allen invite former NYCFC defender, Kwame Awuah, on the show to discuss the growth of soccer north of the border.

MLS Is Blue! / Ep 348 / Blue City Radio
Episode 348: There are times when it still doesn’t feel real. For all of the hope and promise that NYCFC has given its fans during the first six seasons, there was always that let down in the playoffs. The fan base has seen the team fail in the playoffs more than they’ve seen them fail in the regular season. But this year, after the drought, after the miserable results against Red Bull and Chicago, this year when the team and their fans went to Foxborough, MA, this year would be different. Endulge Mike, J.R. and Mike Allen as they talk about the MLS Cup and what it means to them and to all the NYCFC fans around the world.
