Has NYCFC’s home form put their playoff hopes in jeopardy?
More concerns about NYCFC’s Home record at MLSoccer.com.
“Of the 52 teams to make the playoffs since MLS moved to a 34-game schedule in 2011, only two have won fewer than seven home games. Those teams were the 2011 Colorado Rapids and Sporting Kansas City in 2014.
Those teams each finished with six wins at home, meaning NYCFC would have to win half of their home games the rest of the season to match them, which may be difficult with Real Salt Lake (6/2), Colorado (7/30), LA (8/20) and Dallas (9/17) still set to visit. Not to mention, another round looms with the Red Bulls (7/3).”
There’s even more. I think they overstate what we have to do, because they ignore our 3 wins in only 6 away games so far. But to be sure, the tension between our position in the standings and our home record is real and will not sustain itself. RTWT as the hip bloggers used to say in 2003.
