Welcome to Episode 134 of the NYCFC Nation Podcast. Before we jump in NYCFC talk, we talk a little Game of Thrones (no spoilers) and who we would be if we were to be living in that world.
After this we talk about how New York City FC plays at home twice this week. The first match up is on Wednesday against Toronto FC. Chris P and Chris M preview this match-up and discuss what formations and starters Patrick Vieira will use. We also debate on what Patrick has learned when he last time faced Toronto FC. Will Sean Johnson be back from his play-less tour with the Unites States Mens National Team?
The second match up this week is on Saturday against Chicago Fire Soccer Club. None of us at The Nation, and probably other MLS analysts expected Chicago Fire to be in first place more than midway through the season. What does NYCFC have to do to grab another three points against Chicago?
Towards the end of the podcast we go through league news, salaries for some players on NYCFC and we answer your twitter and subreddit questions! Is Thomas McNamara a better value as a trade chip than as a current member of the team? Will Miguel Camargo gain more minutes with his positive performance for Panama during the Gold Cup?
