Looking at NYCFC’s remaining schedule I would like to see them get 18 more points, 55 total.
Home: A team with our record that seems to have fixed its home woes should win 4 of its last 5 at home, even with 2 of them against good teams.
Away: A team with our Away record should manage 2 more wins in 5 tries. We’ve already won 3 Away games against teams with only one other home loss. Plus DC is only so-so at home.
Six wins. 18 new points. 55 total. If NYC does worse than this I think it’s a disappointment based on current expectations. Based on preseason hopes, it can still be a wild success.
Bonus Stretch Goal: Throw in 2 draws from the other 4 games for 6-2-2, 2.0 PPG over the final stretch. 57 Points total and I think it’s a near certainty we finish top 2 in the East. It’s very doable.
