RBNY fan "Flyin Ryan" post on BigSoccer.net that I thought was well done & worth reposting here.
"Just got back home from the game.
First off, glad to see the boys in red win 2-1.
The first half was pretty much RBNY controlling I thought, and the second half was pretty much Wilmington controlling until our second goal. Both of our goals seemed to be when they hadn't set themselves up, the first one with Stammler in the 4th minute and the second one from we didn't know who scored right after the equalizer (I see now it was Cila). I was with 4 guys (a couple at least post here, one was lfci) that drove down from New York.
We were real pissed off after the Wilmington goal. Stammler and a Hammerhead were going for the ball and the ball went out of bounds off the Hammerhead player. This was right in front of us, who were front row at midfield, and right between the benches. Ref gives the ball to Wilmington. Richie is pissed, Stammler is pissed, and Stammler gets a yellow. Well a minute later Wilmington scores. Everyone around us is going nuts. Well by the time the crowd settles down I look up and RBNY have the ball in the box and the ball goes in the net. Crowd went death quiet, while we were jumping up and down, and I felt a bit of a drink hit me. The RBNY reserves went off the bench, ran down the sidelines, and were cheering the goal (the one that stood out most was Conway). The rest of the game was pretty academic, Hammerheads had a couple half-chances but that was it.
As for analysis, I guess Magee didn't play too well tonight. Buddle stood around a lot unless he had the ball I think. Stammler gets mood swings, or at least he did tonight. Seems like in the second half we played too cautious.
As for atmosphere, me and the 4 travellers were the vocal part of the RBNY support. There were a few more I think I saw but they were subdued. To the left of us in the stands were the Wilmington fan club, the Port City Firm. I would say 30 or so of them, they were loud and had a drum (so did we). The Port City Firm were nice and chatted with us before and after the game and during halftime. At halftime, a person that said he was taking pictures for usopencup.com took some pictures of us RBNY supporters sitting down with the Port City Firm behind us giving us mock choke holds, so look for that on the game recap there.
The stadium looked about 2/3 to 3/4 full, if I had to guess I would say 3000 maybe (I'm terrible on guessing attendance).
Only bad part of the night was after the game, one of the Wilmington fans behind us tried to steal lfci's Red Bull drum when no one was looking. Luckily, a guy that I guess helps run the Port City Firm ran after him and got it back, saying he almost got into a fight over it as the guy at first wouldn't give it up. That was nice of him at least.
We won the boiled peanuts!
On a sidenote, it's a bummer all the non-MLS teams are out."
WE ARE LEGION!
