'Soccer In The City' Podcast: Hudson River Derby Ends In Epic Draw

August 23, 2018 - 1:02 pm

In the latest episode of the "Soccer In The City" podcast, NYCFC radio analyst Ariel Judas joins the guys replacing Glenn Crooks to talk about Wednesday’s epic 1-1 tie between New York City FC and the Red Bulls in the Hudson River Derby. 

Is the second half of the game, especially the last 25 minutes when NYCFC was playing down two men because of red cards, the galvanizing moment for the team after a so-so run of play in the last month? 

The guys also discuss referee Ted Unkle’s performance and break down the key moments in the match. Were the red cards to Eloi Amagat and Ebenezer Ofori deserved or not? You might be surprised by their conclusions.

Speaking of Amagat, he had a rough debut even before the red card... What do the guys think is his future with the club?

Finally they break down the race for the final playoff positions and they do not come to a consensus on who makes it and who doesn’t. Could the title holders be left out of the post season? More than one of the guys think so.

That and more on #SoccerInTheCity
