Columbus Crew Falls to New York FC 4-1

Related Topics Danny Simpsoncenter_img In it’s final moments of the regular season, the Columbus Crew SC has once again shown us that they are ready for the end of the season and do not want to remember anything about the season that just dragged on without any sign of improvement.  The final score of the final game would end 4-1 advantage NYCFC.  The Crew SC’s only goal would come in the 59’ when Corey Ashe would connect with Justin Meram who would then send a beautiful cross towards the far post for a sprinting Ola Kamara to head in or the score.  NYCFC clinches the number two spot in the Eastern Conference semis.  The loss with a flash or two of brilliance has been the staple of the Crew SC’s season.  The Team’s drop off from 2015 was a tremendous one.  Going from the MLS Cup finals to not even making the playoffs seems to be a trend in the wrong direction.  Hopefully next year they will consider getting off to a stronger start and perhaps some roster moves will be considered as well I’m sure.  But until next time, see you next season.  last_img read more

Man City star in foul mouthed outburst after Arsenal teammate ignores…

Nothing is going right for Alexis Sanchez these days, not even international football.The Chile forward appears to be very frustrated at Arsenal’s situation, with claims he might not renew his contract, and Thursday night’s loss to Argentina in a World Cup qualifier did little to cheer him up.Furthermore, he might now be in Claudio Bravo’s bad books, after Sanchez appeared to ignore some instructions passed on by his captain regarding who should take a dangerous free-kick late in the second half.According to La Tercera, the Manchester City goalkeeper ran to the halfway line to talk to Gary Medel to tell him he felt Charles Aranguiz should take the free-kick instead of Alexis Sanchez.However, the Arsenal forward took it upon himself to try and equalise, only to see his free-kick fly way over the bar of Sergio Romero’s goal, with Sanchez instantly swearing and pulling his shirt over his head.As for Claudio Bravo, the Manchester City man was allegedly heard screaming a bunch of swear words at the night’s sky, getting rid of the frustration of seeing his teammate ignore his suggestion and waste what turned out to be one of the last great chances for Chile to salvage a point.Whether Pep Guardiola’s summer signing and the Arsenal man exchanged heated words after the game is yet to be revealed, but we doubt he will have have congratulated him for spurning such a good goalscoring Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Strategy Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoMisterStocksThese Hilarious Photos Were Captured On The SubwayMisterStocksUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoSingles50Hong Kong: A 40+ Dating Site That Actually Works!Singles50UndoTheTopFiveVPNEnjoy Netflix Now Without Any RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPNUndoDating.comTung Chung is actually full of single men.
