Are you smarter than Ryan Nelsen?: Round 15

It feels like forever since the last time TFC took the pitch but smarter than is back.

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

It's been two weeks since we last saw the Reds on the pitch and even though they left us with a great memory after their win in DC it's nice to have them take the pitch again.  TFC is riding a 3 game winning streak, not an unbeaten streak (though that stands at 4 games), a winning streak as the new New Yorkers come to town.

Thus far in the season NYCFC has been the typical expansion team.  They have had their struggles on both the offensive and defensive end of the pitch.  There are moments that make everyone forget about those troubles but in general the squad and results have been what one would expect.

Giovinco showed that he is a consistent performer regardless of the squad around him.  The good news is that he shouldn't have to carry the entire offensive load alone as TFC should be at full strength, or very close to it, after what was starting to look like an episode of the walking dead.  The internationals will be from their respective national team duties, Altidore should be fully fit, even Robbie Findley could be healthy.  If the Reds can keep David Villa in check a win is a very likely outcome.

What are your thoughts heading into the match?
