Next game against PSG he will start and play the first half so no problem. But fantastic goalkeeper, no problem. Ambitious plans have been unveiled for a New York rugby league team to follow Toronto into the English game. NYCFC obtained his MLS homegrown priority rights from the New York Red Bulls in Monday for $100,000 in general allocation money plus $300,000 in conditional general allocation money that depends on specified benchmarks being met during his MLS contract. Despite fielding a fringe squad, the New York Red Bulls proved too strong for Chelsea. Like Toronto, New York would cover all travel and accommodation costs of visiting teams after securing agreements with a travel company and hotel chain and play in blocks of home and away fixtures. Uniform costs are in addition to Registration Fees, Club Team Training Fees and Team Fees. Organisers say playing in the summer would avoid a direct clash with the NFL and they are confident of building a fan base of 10,000 in the first year, doubling the figure within three years to bring it on a par with the New York Red Bulls soccer team.
Organisers are confident of attracting a television deal and have pledged to spread the game into schools and the local community. Wilby says the consortium hope to get the go-ahead to stage a Super League fixture at the Red Bull Arena in 2017 and have offered to host an RFL delegation in February. The other co-founder Ricky Wilby, who has made three fact-finding trips to New York in the last six months, told the briefing the consortium have plans to lay firm foundations for rugby league in the city. We have a small consortium of high-networking individuals, one member of which has made New York his home, and all have a significant love for the game,’ Scott said. Asmir Begovic endured a nightmare debut as Chelsea kicked off their US tour in humbling fashion against a second-string New York Red Bulls team, with a 16-year-old school kid scoring. But there was more pain to come when a weak Ramires clearance allowed Davis to strike for his second, with Begovic fumbling yet again, diving over the ball, as the Red Bulls celebrated a famous victory. With almost his first touch he fumbled a cross which allowed Franklin Castellanos a clear strike on goal and the former Stoke goalkeeper had John Terry to thank for clearing off the line on 50 minutes.
In fact Chelsea’s imminent second bid for John Stones may be pinging its way over to Everton as we speak, given the quality of some of the defending on show: Terry’s backpass, Nemanja Matic’s unconvincing flick which led to the Red Bulls’ third and Ramires’ timid clearance for the fourth goal all came under scrutiny. Some truly awful defending, including a Matic flick to nowhere in particular, allowed Sean Davis to make it 3-1 on 73 minutes. Scorers: Castellanos, 51, Adams, 67, Davis, 73, 78. It got worse for Begovic, as a header from 16-year-old schoolboy Tyler Adams on 70 minutes put the Red Bulls 2-1 up and he was again to blame when they eventually added the fourth. Then on 70 minutes came the fine Adams header, with Chelsea’s marking nowhere to be seen, which put the Red Bulls in the lead, a goal which galvanised the game. But it was Begovic who was most exposed just minutes into his debut, having come on for Thibaut Courtois at half-time, conceding four goals in what was a virtually a new team for the second half.

Begovic was also responsible for the Red Bulls’ fouth on 76 minutes and Mourinho said: ‘First of all I think he was tired the same as Thibaut Courtois and when goalkeepers are very tired co-ordination is low, agility doesn’t exist, speed reaction doesn’t exist. ‘Courtois made a mistake in the first half on his feet; Begovic in the second half was not sharp in his reactions. Chelsea first half XI: Courtois, Ivanovic, Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Fabregas, Mikel, Moses, Oscar, Traore, Remy. Chelsea second half XI: Begovic, Ania, Zouma, Terry, Azpilicueta, Matic, Ramires, Oscar, Loftus Cheek, Hazard, Costa. Few Chelsea players emerged with any credit but Victor Moses had a lively first half, doubtless keen to impress on Mourinho that he wants to fight for a first-team place; and Eden Hazard, receiving the largest cheer of the night from what was eventually a raucous and lively crowd, did at least reciprocate with a range of skills and a goal that merited his reception. Otherwise there was little to cheer for the majority of Chelsea fans in the 24,067 crowd – just short of capacity – and that which was there came largely in the first half, when Moses, and Bertrand Traore, playing for the first time since his return, made constant inroads to the Red Bulls defence.
