D.C. United vs. New York Red Bulls GIFs

We look back at moments of intrigue. Or entertainment at least.

Moods were rightfully sour after D.C. United lost to New York City FC last week, and on a clear and rain-free night at RFK, beating their rivals in the New York Red Bulls 2-0 was a pleasant, even encouraging sign. So let's go looking at GIFs, shall we?

The first is a Red Bulls counter following a sequence where Luciano Acosta was dispossessed. Sean Franklin was too far up and Patrick Nyarko didn't react in time when Gonzalo Veron started his run, and it was almost fatal:

I honestly thought Jesse Marsch would have tightened this up but it didn't materialize. Rather than show the goal, note the buildup to it, and compare and contrast:

The Red Bulls had their chances, starting with this one where Bobby Boswell and/or Taylor Kemp looked a little between two minds:

Then you had this chance where Travis Worra stood on his head a little:

Finally, goal number two. Goodness gracious Alvaro Saborio, Lamar Neagle and Patrick Nyarko:

Before I turn the floor over, Luciano Acosta's magical first half footwork is in the ratings post, so go there for that particular pleasure.

Other than that, what else did you like?
