Man of the Match: Angelino (Rating - 7.0)
Congratulations to Angelino on becoming the first "Third Rail Man of the Match" as voted on by NYC FC fans and supporters.
From his pinpoint cross to Mix that setup an amazing opportunity, to his amazing run to stop a clean break for BWP, the youngster was a presence on both sides of the field last night.
Without a doubt, Angelino is going to be a fun player to watch for the remainder of his loan with the Bronx Blues.
"Angelino has been the biggest shocker as he had an amazing game. He is a future world class player for the Premier League and we should take advantage of him here while we still can." - Kevin McDermott, Third Rail Member from Bethleham, PA
Other Ratings (Listed Highest to Lowest)
Tommy McNamara - 6.5
Shay Facey - 5.8
David Villa - 5.8
Kwadwo Poku - 5.5
"I'm not sure what it will take for Kreis to realize what starting Poku means for this team. He needs to be the central forward midfielder that anchors the team offensively. We saw Villa with the ball on the outside way too many times. Pirlo and Lampard should be feeding the ball to Poku who can dish it out to Villa / McNamara / Mix." - KTD, NYCFC Fan from New York City
Mix Diskerud - 5.4
Josh Saunders - 4.8
Frank Lampard - 4.6
Andrew Jacobson - 4.6
Andoni Iraola - 4.5
"The defense is improved but needs time to gel...The only glaring mistake was Iraola not stepping up on the second goal after he tracked back almost all the way to the goal." - Kevin McDermott, Third Rail Member from Bethleham, PA
Javier Calle - 4.3
Andrea Pirlo - 4.3
Jefferson Mena - 4.2
Patrick Mullins - N/A
Other Notable Comments from the SUpporters
"I wish there was a rating option for the official. I have never seen a 4th official so involved in a match, almost coaching the man in the middle. Either way, officials do not determine the outcome of games." - Dan Danbusky, Third Rail Member from Long Island
"Bad performance. Why did LA adapt so fast and easy with the new signings and not NYCFC?" - Percy from Queens, NY
"As a club, we are still in the infancy stage...I do feel there is potential here though, and I will always follow, win or lose. " - Dan Danbusky, Third Rail Member from Long Island
