NYCFC's David Villa to fight retirement; denies return to Europe

Despite David Villa's impressive numbers in MLS, does he need to lift MLS Cup to cement his legacy among the greats?

David Villa has played down talk of a return to European football and said he is focused on postponing retirement as long as possible.

The 35-year-old striker, who is Spain's record scorer with 59 goals from 98 appearances, was in prolific form for New York City in 2017, registering 22 times in MLS games, making him the league's top scorer. 

But he admitted that seeing his teammate, Italian legend Andre Pirlo, retire at the end of this season, was a clear message that Major League Soccer is...

MLS tenures of Kaka, Pirlo reveal risk in leaning on legends made elsewhere

Revisit the best moments of Andrea Pirlo's time with New York City FC after the Italian maestro's retirement.
Relive the career highlights of Kaka since his move to Orlando City as he's set to leave the club at season's end.

A few minutes before the end of New York City FC's Eastern Conference semifinal second leg against Columbus Crew SC, with the team needing a goal to complete an unprecedented comeback, coach Patrick Vieira subbed on Andrea Pirlo.

Time was, a tiring team like Columbus might have reacted with panic at that development; a close-fought series was coming down to the wire and now its opponent was sending in a World Cup winner with a sublime touch on the ball, to probably tilt the game decisively.

But...

Andrea Pirlo leaves behind a legacy built on beauty and vision

Revisit the best moments of Andrea Pirlo's time with New York City FC after the Italian maestro's retirement.

One of the most memorable scenes from Christopher Nolan's 2010 film "Inception" is when Don Cobb, the thief, played by Leonardo di Caprio needs an architect "who is as good as I was." Michael Caine's character, Cobb's mentor Professor Stephen Miles, looks up from his desk and tells him not to worry. "I've got somebody better," he says. Miles introduces Cobb to a student, Ariadne who is hired to "create the world of the dream."

She's a prodigious talent. But while watching the movie I personally...

New York City FC's over-reliance on David Villa cost it in the playoffs

Columbus will play Toronto FC in the Eastern Conference Final after NYCFC failed to score the third goal they needed.

They might be the last people New York City FC would look to for empathy, but New York Red Bulls know the feeling.

A game plan and a series that hinges on contingencies you can't plan for; a self-inflicted and avoidable disciplinary wound; a goal-of-a-lifetime against you; a goalkeeping error.

Red Bulls fans will read the above and instantly flash to multiple moments over the years that seemed to undo a season in a second; for that matter, they may well probably end up adding the circumstances...
