David Villa produced one of the best goals of his entire career, shooting from 53.5 yards out, volleying over Blake into the net to deservedly earn his team their third win of the campaign in jaw-dropping style.

Man of the Match…

Jack Harrison

The winger always looked like the most likely source of a goal to break the deadlock and he delivered it in fine style with a crashing finish under Blake after a clever run around the back of the Philadelphia defense.

It wasn’t just his goal which caught the eye on the night – he was a constant menace to the Union backline, slaloming through challenges and exchanging passes with teammates throughout the contest.

What’s Next?

NYCFC return to Yankee Stadium on Sunday, April 23, 2017, where they will take on Orlando City at 1.30pm at YANKEE STADIUM

Former VP Joe Biden Attends 87ers Game


Bulls’ Balance Too Much For Sevens

NEWARK, DE – The Delaware 87ers (25-22) fell to the Windy City Bulls (22-25) 110-99 on Beau Biden Foundation Night. This was a well-contested, back and forth game, but when the Bulls took a 46-44 lead with 6:57 to go in the second quarter they never let go of their advantage. The Sevens and Bulls tied the season series 2-2.

The game had a similar feel to the Reno and Long Island affairs earlier in the week. In those two games, Delaware got timely buckets whenever their opponent got close. Tonight, the tables were turned when it became clear the Bulls had an answer for every Sevens push.

Aaron Harrison led the way for Delaware with 32 points. He hit five three-pointers and also added eight rebounds. He was one of four 87ers in double figures, with Nate Robinson (23), Roscoe Smith (13) and Russ Smith (11) rounding out the group.

In a cruel twist of fate, Fort Wayne lost to Grand Rapids by two. Had the Sevens won, they would have moved to within 1.5 games of the Mad Ants for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. As it stands, Delaware is still 2.5 games back of Fort Wayne. The 87ers have three games left, while the Mad Ants have two contests remaining.

Windy City had an astounding eight players finish in double figures. The Bulls only had nine guys see the court, making the feat all the more impressive. Former 87er David Laury III was a high man for Windy City, pacing the club with 17 points. He was traded to the Bulls on March 2.

U.S. Soccer fires national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann


Jurgen Klinsmann has been fired as the manager of the United States, the U.S. Soccer Federation announced on Monday.Klinsmann took over the U.S. men’s squad in 2011 and led them into the knockout stage at the 2014 World Cup.

But disappointing results since then put his job in jeopardy, with defeats to Mexico and Costa Rica in World Cup qualifiers this month proving to be the last straw.

“Today we made the difficult decision of parting ways with Jurgen Klinsmann, our head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team and Technical Director,” a U.S. Soccer statement said.

“We want to thank Jurgen for his hard work and commitment during these last five years. He took pride in having the responsibility of steering the program, and there were considerable achievements along the way.

“Many are aware of the historic victories, including leading us out of the Group of Death to the Round of 16 in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but there were also lesser publicized efforts behind the scenes.

He challenged everyone in the U.S. Soccer community to think about things in new ways, and thanks to his efforts we have grown as an organization and expect there will be benefits from his work for years to come.

“While we remain confident that we have quality players to help us advance to Russia 2018, the form and growth of the team up to this point left us convinced that we need to go in a different direction.

With the next qualifying match in late March, we have several months to refocus the group and determine the best way forward to ensure a successful journey to qualify for our eighth-consecutive World Cup.

“There has never been a greater time for soccer in this country, and with the support and efforts of the millions of fans, sponsors, media and friends, we look forward to continued progress in the game we all love.”

13-year NBA veteran Baron Davis, who was acquired by the 87ers (17-22) on Wednesday, recorded eight points, four assists and three steals in 19 minutes of action off the bench, in his first game in 1,398 days. Russ Smith led Delaware with 31 points on 10-of-26 shooting from the field, in addition to five assists and four rebounds. Rick Jackson posted an 87ers season-high 20 rebounds, and Ty Greene added 20 points.

“I survived. It felt good. I definitely have to get myself into a rhythm. As we practice my court awareness and vision will become sharper”. Said Davis

How did you feel about that dunk? “I thought I was being chased by a pit bull, I thought it was LeBron James coming to block it, I didn’t want to lay it up; I figured why I’m up here I might as well dunk it”. Said Davis

The Energy (18-21) were led by Patrick Christopher who had 31 points on 11-of-23 shooting from the field in a team-high 42 minutes. Ramon Harris had the Iowa’s only double-double with 16 points and 16 rebounds. Terry Whisnant chipped in 22 points on 9-of-16 shooting to go along with six rebounds and four assists.

DJI’s Phantom 4: A Photographer’s Take


At least as much as anyone, I’m intrigued by drones. I’ve always wanted to be a pilot, I’m reading a book on the Wright Brothers right now, I fly every chance I get, and if I ever have a first born son, I’m torn between naming him Bernoulli or Orville. I’m crazy about flying, but […]
