It’s getting ugly for the East in road interconference games. Only 1 win and 2 ties in 13 tries. That’s 5 out of a possible 39 points, while the West nabbed 31 points in those games.
This terrible performance by the rest of the East is basically why NYCFC is sitting in the last playoff spot, — barely by the second tie-breaker — with a 1.0 PPG. The bad news is that 29% of the interconference games held in the west that don’t involve NYC have already been played compared to 19% of the total league schedule so we have been getting an outsized benefit from this anomaly. NYC will have to win a few games out West to really take advantage of it.
