NYRB’s fans produce a giant comic banner mocking NYCFC’s Frank Lampard & Andrea Pirlo (Videos)

It all kicked off on Sunday night in the Big Apple.

The New York Red Bulls beat city rivals New York City FC 2-0 this weekend, in a match that had plenty of drama.

Things started long before kick off, as rivals fans got into a punch-up outside a gastro pub in the build-up to the derby.

During the contest, supporters of the Red Bulls unveiled a giant banner which took the piss out of City’s two star imports this summer: Frank Lampard and Andrea Pirlo.

Spoofing the midfielder up as a pair of old geezers with sandals, walking sticks and bad backs, the banner read “City Retirement Home”.

As to the match details, goals in each half from Bradley Wright-Phillips and Felipe Martins earned the Red Bulls victory.
