Torrent: We have the possibility to win something
New York City FC slumped to the finish last year and needed seven games to notch their first victory this season, but things have certainly turned around since head coach Dome Torrent switched systems a month ago.
NYCFC dominated the first half and did enough after the break to make a 2-0 halftime advantage stick Saturday afternoon against the LA Galaxy, posting their third straight road clean sheet while extending their unbeaten streak to seven games with their fourth shutout in the last five outings.
They limited realistic chances for the Galaxy, who were coming off two road losses back east in the previous week and missing midfield general Jonathan dos Santos, until the 80th minute and vaulted to fourth in the Eastern Conference with an emphatic and at times dominant triumph.
“Maybe we find the right system for us, because it's three clean sheets in a row when we play away,” said Torrent, a Spaniard who took charge at NYCFC last summer. “But it's not about that. It's about the feeling. Sometimes you are not able to score, but the feeling is natural, and right now this team has the possibility to win something.”
