    If it wasn’t for Flo would of been 5-1. Sloppy game with just so many errant passes. If not for that Quakes could of gotten a point out if it. So dam frustrating. JY and TT didn’t have the best of games. Hoesen confidence level must be at -5.

    I hate NYCFC's field. Its the worst thing to happen in New York, ever.

    Florian had another good game and Wondo's goal was sweet but that was it...Another wasted opportunity to pick up a few points and I have my doubts we will win or draw against Atlanta.

    We clearly aren't a good team on the road.

    That field size is no different than what the Quakes used to their advantage for years and years... but you could see how it threw the team off in the first half with wide passes.

    As fans do, many are being way too harsh. The Quakes just lost by a goal in two away games to good teams that were arguably favored to win. It's a razor's edge. Against RSL if Marie's chance goes in, different result. One stupid mistake today with a throw-in, costs you 1-3 points.

    The schedule for the last 6 games is stacked against the Quakes and the first two have resulted in zero points. Missing the playoffs is a real possibility, but if they make it they will hopefully be peaking again at the right time.

    Quakes were the better team against NYCFC in the second half, too many wasted chances again. Espinoza shot was a bit of a waste. Hoesen gets through and doesn't even get a shot off.

    I do want to know what's up with the Nick Lima situation.

    Still , regardless of the field size, the Quakes are horrible on the road. I’m not so sure about this rotation of players Almeyda has going. It seems to work at home but not on the road. Its either the opponents that are better or we just can’t seem to get are groove.

    There were few offensive shots on goals in the last two games. Something that’s odd because at times Matias seems to pepper the oppositions goal with a flurry of shots. Then there are times like the last two road trips where the offense can’t get nothing going. Putting in Rios and Hoesen was a total waste. Same with Salinas. Our options off the bench have been horrid as of late. Maybe if Lima returns things might change and he will have improved from playing internationally? I’m not sure what the solution is but I think if this trek continues, (not that it means much but ) bye bye postseason....

    I personally have no desire to see the Quakes make the playoffs and fall flat on their face again.

    Of 14 home games, Atl have drawn three, lost one, and won 10. This is most likely to be a three-game road trip with zero points for the Quakes.

    This is a league that, because of it's make up and scheduling, generally favors any home team unless the home team is plain awful (Quakes last season). Coaches do all they can to keep the visiting team acclimated to the time zone issue. A long flight, especially one that might have a plane change, can be physically demanding. Plus MLS arranges travel, as I understand it, and they never charter a plane. All travel is by commercial airlines. That is something that Rooney and others complain about. I don't know about our coach, but it is not unusual for a road team to maintain their home time, meaning a pregame curfew might be early, considering the local time....on the east coast, if the normal curfew is 11 PM at home, it would be 8 PM in New York....a 4 PM EDT would be a 1 PM game. Wake up, work out, pregame meal, etc. is all scheduled on Pacific time. Even with all that, visiting a venue where you have never been, especially something like Yankee Stadium, can be intimidating, regardless of preparation.

    our poor road record is bad enough but we haven't been able to pick up a single point over these last two games against teams missing key players and we've given up goals at critical points in the game (late in the half, late in the game)....we're in free fall.

    Lima couldn't possibly be worse than Lopez in this game

    Not sure what happen, wish we knew. Seems not to have the confidence like he did earlier in the season. His touch is off (because of lack of playing time?) and a couple of times this match seemed he had time to fire off a shot but didn't......

    Ask yourselves why would the league schedule us against a bunch of powerhouse teams at the end of our season unless they knew those teams could better themselves by feasting on us. Remember, we were a 4 win team last year so the league assumed we'd be easy pickings for any team they lined up against us this year. Don't tell me the league doesn't engage in manipulation malpractice when deciding who plays whom and when. :mad:

    We should have scored more goals but IMO Lopez cost us this game.

    His sequence when he made a bad thrown-in then waved his hands to complain while NYFC was charging the goal, proceed to cut off Judson and then just stood there on the shot and deflection was just terrible.

    I screamed that should have been subbed right there. Of course he stayed and then failed to stop a runner by either challenging for the ball or taking a professional foul in the open field just a few minutes later allowing the second goal to happen.

    Not sure what is the story with Lima but I would rather have him in place of Lopez. Lima is not even in the 18 and he is a lot better than Fierro.

    So, these Quakes should be comfortable playing on a bowling alley field just because Quakes teams from 15+ years ago were used to playing on one? o_O

    Too many hopeful and/or hurried passes in this game by the Quakes. Just too sloppy. Credit to NYC for pressing us defensively and combining well offensively.

    Although he got an assist today, Vako seems to be reverting back to his ball hog approach in the final third. With the skills he has to draw and beat defenders, he should be getting even more assists. And part of the problem is our failure to make smart runs off the ball when he's beating those defenders. It all goes back to being too predictable (like last year). If you're not doing enough to surprise defenders, you're going to struggle to create good chances.

    Flo is an absolute stud.

    No way that field is the 110 x 70 they claim it to be. If I remember right Buck Shaw used to be 70 yards wide. This field looked narrower than that!

    Not completely blaming the field on the loss, two very sloppy sequences by the team and then not as many chances created cost us.

    So when exactly will New York City FC get their own soccer stadium?

    No, that's not what I meant. I was simply stating that historically, our own team had the "advantage" of the small field for years.

    Then I was saying the current incarnation of the team was definitely affected by NYCFC's small field. A ton of diagonal passes went out of bounds while they calibrated in the first half.

    Sorry to mix points, I can see how I wasn't clear.

    Four figures attendance in Yankee Stadium today, with a plurality of Quakes fans from what I could see. Top of the east and all anyone wants to talk about in the Big Apple is Sam Darnold's mono. Another great success story for Don Garber.
