Long gone are the days of the television commentators being the only voice that matters during a live sporting event. In the age of Twitter fans, players and pundits provide their own commentary and consume multiple voices over the course of the match.
Here’s what the Twitterverse had to say about the Red Bulls 2-0 win over FC Dallas.

Dallas has given away possession way too easily. Doesn't seem like a club that went to the Cup Finals last year.

#NYRB dodging bullets but that is what you do with minutes left and down a man, can they hold on?
Thierry Henry 2-0, collects his rebound and pokes it in. Goodbye Dallas, NYRB advance. Called it.
