Three Things: Colorado Rapids 0:0 New York City FC

The Rapids choked at home against an expansion team.

Everything was going for the Rapids.

Great weather

Fan Base behind them

Almost sold out park.

And yet, the Rapids pull a Rapids.

The have the ball.  21 shots.  7 on goal.  And nothing to show for it.  My thoughts:

The Defense:  The back four along with Clint Irwin was solid all day and were able to deal with a NYCFC offense that was largely poor, and the Rapids were able to deal with chances as they came.  It was a second clean sheet for the Burgundy Boys and that should be praised.

The Offense: At home.  Full House.  And you can't score.  Putrid.  What a let down and for those supporters who love this club--you have a right to be pissed after that one.

An Opportunity Squandered.  The Rapids had a chance to break the duck with a win tonight, but could not generate a goal let alone a win.  This is not on Pablo as the players have to find a way to score at home.   But it has been since October 11 in the 30th minute that the Rapids have scored.  Not good.

The Rapids had a chance to grab three points and send their supporters home happy, instead they settle for another draw and run their winless streak to 0-12-4 and have not won since July 2014.  Their next match is next Saturday at Houston against the Dynamo.
