THE BRONX — New York City FC did everything right, except score three times. City defeated the Columbus Crew, 2-0, in Sunday evening’s Eastern Conference semifinal second leg, but lost, 4-3 on aggregate. David Villa scored a 16th minute penalty and Jonathan Mensah conceded a second-half own goal. NYCFC struck the post twice and held the Crew to one shot on target, a perfectly executed comeback that came inches short. “We gave ourselves the best chance to make it up,” NYCFC Coach Patrick Vieira said.
New York City FCÂ will face an inspired teamÂ that has not lost since Aug. 5, but tmay have gotten a break by matching up against the Columbus Crew. NYCFC will play at Columbus on Tuesday night on grass against a teamÂ it scored at least two goals on twice in the regular season. The only trade offs are thatÂ the Crew is the hottest in the league and will have thousands of fans at their backs passionately cheeringÂ as they cling onto a team that’s being ripped from them.
For nine months and 34 games, the message from New York City FC was that this year would be different. Coach Patrick Vieira said the ignominy of his team’s 7-0 loss to Toronto FC in last year’s playoffs has taught the team to be braver. Tuesday evening will be a referendum on that sentiment and on NYCFC’s consistent belief in excelsior. City will look to prove itself by seizing the initiative at the Columbus Crew.
You do realize you can use Bradley's comments to support arguments that Precourt hasn't done enough to raise the Crew to an expected standard set by Toronto, Seattle? Or is it just easier to crap on him cause we didn't make the World Cup and he's coddled?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
