MK, didn't realize you were an FCC fan... Let's hang out at one of the next home games! (Beware, it might involve pre-game Taste of Belgium shenanigans)

When I go it's usually with a group who meet at Molly Malone's and ride the MM Green Machine to and from the match.

With yesterday's improbable comeback win, FCC has home-field advantage in the playoffs as long as they stay alive...

ZK, your Richmond Kickers are hosting FCC on Wednesday evening. Any chance they can stop FCC's 19 unbeaten streak?

Was at the final regular season home game on Saturday. Incredible atmosphere all around (and I don't just mean Nippert Stadium, but the entire Clifton area--the area was packed and rocking). 31,000+ people in the stands. FCC won 3-0. Does it get any better?

At the pre-game bar hangout I was at, I was next to a couple from England, long time residents of Cincinnati (no, not CR and MK), and we started chatting. "Can you believe what they have built here?' the guy asked me.

FCC has home field advantage throughout the playoffs (starting Oct. 20)

So looking forward to their transition into MLS next year. The front office has done such a great job in the USL, and I expect them to do the same in MSL.

We were at the match too. Figured since we went to the FCCvIndy11 match at Lucas Oil at the start of the season we may as well top & tail. Fun time!

One of the most enjoyable things for me having gone to many FCC games this year is the people I meet, both at the pre-game bar and at the game. So many international (non-US) people that live here that I had no idea about. And soccer-aficianados. I typically wear a club jersey of a Belgian player to the game. The obvious one being Kevin De Bruyne's ManCity or Jan Vertonghen's Tottenham jersey. One of the games I was wearing Dries Mertens' Napoli jersey and some guy came up to me to tell me how a big fan of Napoli he was. Nobody but someone who is "really" into it would've even recognized it. What are the chances? I love those moments.

Not surprisingly, Ledesma, the best player on the team, and surely USL MVP of this year, has been offered a contract for next year's MLS season

http://www.espn.com/soccer/fc-cincinnati/story/3668337/fc-cincinnati-midfielder-emmanuel-ledesma-set-to-sign-new-contract-sources


As an aside, FCC tied at Nashville 3-3 tonight, bringing their unbroken streak to 23 (a USL record).

Next: the first game of the playoffs on Saturday, 4 pm, at Nippert. Keeping fingers crossed for the weather.

Disappointing loss today for FCC in the playoffs. But honestly, I am not all that surprised. The team simply hasn't played very well in the last month or so. The 24 game streak of not losing was an albatross. I wished they had lost one of the last regular season game, just to get that "unbeaten" streak done with, but it also looked to me the team simply ran out of steam. Nevertheless, a glorious season for sure.

Next game at Nippert: the MLS home debut! Looking forward to it already!

FC Cincinnati will open its 2019 home schedule on Sunday, March 17, when the team hosts MLS Cup finalist Portland Timbers at 5 p.m. at Nippert Stadium in its first-ever Major League Soccer contest in the Queen City.

FCC will formally open the 2019 season with back-to-back road games in front of MLS’ two largest average crowds. Major League Soccer announced all 24 teams’ home openers on Thursday afternoon.

FC Cincinnati will play its first-ever MLS game at CenturyLink Field against Seattle Sounders FC at 10 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 2.

Tough way to open (@ Seattle, @ Atlanta), but still I'm psyched!!

FCC is making so many roster and draft moves, it's making my head spin.

Tomorrow is (for all practical purposes) college draft day. Will be interesting to see what develops.

Today is the MLS Superdraft.

Looks like FCC's new jersey was revealed along the way. I love the new jersey! Much better than the previous (USL) jersey):
