Life has been pretty good for New York City FC over the last few weeks.  The team won two games in a row after beating the New England Revolution and D.C. United.  Then, the stadium approval process came to an end, with the New York City Council approving the future home.  More importantly, the Pigeons have scored twice for two matches in a row.  Could it be the team is finally finding their goal-scoring boots?

NYCFC will try to answer that question and seek their third straight win when they welcome Charlotte FC this weekend to the Bronx.  They lost to the Queen City team in the season opener, losing just 1-0.  However, the home side has never beaten the visitors.  In five matches, they have lost four times and shared the points once.  For some reason, Charlotte has had their number and has been a difficult opponent.

This might be the time when they can finally grab that win.  NYCFC is on a bit of momentum at this time with their two wins in a row.  In fact, they are unbeaten in their last four games.  The way they have played, especially during their wins, shows growth within the season.  Plus, Charlotte has the same record as the Pigeons, meaning it should be an even game on paper.

That does not mean the worries go away. Hence, NYCFC must continue to play the same way and score goals.  Any slip will lead to fans calling for Nick Cushing’s sacking again.  They need to see consistency on the pitch.

Final Notes

As many know, Mounsef Bakrar has been struggling to find the back of the net.  The striker has yet to score this year, and he was emotional when he came off in the second half against D.C. United.  Fans should pay attention to whether Cushing starts him again, for if he does, there is a plan to applaud the forward in the ninth minute.  The idea is to show him everyone is behind him and believes in him.  This will be something to watch.
