“Enemies to the east; enemies to the west; enemies to the south; enemies to the north: whatever stands in our way, we will defeat it.” - Cersei Lannister
Yes, we will, Cersei. Yes, we will.
While RBNY was busy vanquishing an enemy to the east, the enemy on our doorstep, NYCFC, imploded on contact with Atlanta United. But that has allowed the enemy from the south to advance to confront us directly.
Earlier skirmishes with Atlanta revealed their general - Tata Martino - is so consumed by hatred for Red Bulls of New York that he will not even abide by the most basic conventions of chivalry.
An enemy with no code is an enemy without honor. And an enemy without honor is an enemy to all. Our enemies to the west and north will engage each other, but we cannot consider moving toward that conflict until the army of the wild man Martino is quieted.
MLS Cup Is Coming. The fight is upon us.
