We told you that we were taking off this week, but Bryan, Boston and Brad decided to give their thoughts on the current Division Two (D2) sanctioning issues with the US Soccer Federation. Hear the guys elaborate on the situation, give the background of both leagues and why D2 matters.

Highlights from this week's show.

Bryan, Boston and Brad layout the current situation of US Soccer Division Two Professional sanctioning. The United Soccer League (USL) and the North American Soccer League (NASL) have each applied to fill the second tier of professional league in the United States.

The current D2 league (NASL) has struggled with losing teams to MLS, financial difficulties, league moves or ownership hardships. Seven teams remain in the NASL, but the league is hoping to find several additional teams to help meet USSF league sanctioning criteria.

The current Division Three (D3) league (USL) has grown by leaps and bounds expanding to 30 teams for the 2017 season. However, several clubs are run by MLS franchises and may not meet several standards including staff, stadium or city population sizes.

US Soccer has much to consider and the guys will elaborate on how it can impact the American soccer landscape and our local club.

Bryan also makes another promise that he might not be able to keep. Stay tuned.

Dec 14, 2016

On this week’s Cincinnati Soccer Talk podcast we take a stroll down Cincinnati soccer memory lane. Remember the Cincinnati Silverbacks professional indoor soccer team? We spend the episode reminiscing about the glory days of professional indoor soccer in the Queen City with special guest Rich Neumann, the former President of the Cincinnati Silverbacks. If you’re curious to know how that team came about, Rich fills us in on all the details in this week’s episode.

 

Highlights from this week’s show.

Captaining our podcast this week is Jesse Gill! Thank you Jesse for supporting our show! If you’d like to become the captain of an episode, support our show today at CincinnatiSoccerTalk.com/support.

Brad, Bryan, Yosief and I relieve some of our fondest memories of going to Cincinnati Silverbacks games in the Cincinnati Gardens and The Crown (now US Bank Arena).

Rich Neumann joins the program and tells us some great stories on getting the franchise started. He also talks about some of his unique memories of running the team, from player purchases to roster and gameday operations.
Based on his stories it sounds like he had his hands full. Rich now spends his time working with minor league sports to build new stadiums. The former Silverbacks president is proud of what FCC has achieved but he doesn’t think FC Cincinnati has a chance to get into MLS unless they can build a soccer specific stadium.

MLS Cup was this past weekend and we recapped the big match. Congratulations to the Seattle Sounders who won MLS Cup without registering a single shot on target.

The CST gang played some trivia this week and gave away a Cincinnati Silverbacks t-shirt courtesy of CincyShirts.com. Thanks guys for providing the shirt!

On this week’s show we talk about the state of soccer, particularly for the NASL which as of this time is in deep. Will NASL survive? What does it mean for FC Cincinnati? What does it mean for MLS or USL? Plus we look back at last week’s Don Garber event.

 

Highlights from this week’s show.

Boston, Brad and I briefly recap our thoughts on last week’s successful Don Garber event.

The guys speak about how members of the supporters groups can get involved during the day as well as events for the general public.

Does it get any better than this? Back to back weeks of the podcast featuring two MAJOR PLAYERS from the 2016 squad. We’re really excited this week to be joined by the USL Goalkeeper of the Year, Mitch Hildebrandt. Plus we take a look at MLS Expansion. We also dabble in some US Mens National Team discussion as well. Enjoy!

 

Highlights from this week’s show with Mitch Hildebrandt
We welcomed Mitch Hildebrandt to the podcast fresh off of winning the 2016 USL Goalkeeper of the Year Award.

Despite sitting for a few years up in Minnesota, Mitch was excited about the opportunity to start something fresh and new with FC Cincinnati. He tells us the exact time he knew that this season would be special for the orange and blue.

He’s in love with a few Cincinnati staples as far as food goes, but he’s yet to try one of biggest restaurants near and dear to the Queen City.

He talks about some of the goalkeepers he grew up watching and who he idolized, and more importantly, how he became a keeper in the first place. The story will surprise you!

We also visited with Chad Smith from The Blue Testament to discuss MLS Expansion. In that recent post he listed FC Cincinnati as the #1 team in his MLS Expansion Power Rankings.

What a honor it was this week to chat with the 2016 USL MVP, Sean “Ugo” Okoli! Fresh off his Golden Boot winning campaign we had the chance to catch up with him while he’s back home in Seattle for the offseason. Plus, FC Cincinnati took home some hardware from the USL Sales Summit in San Antonio. An episode wouldn't be complete without #AskYosief some more hard hitting questions.

 

Here are some highlights of our interview:
We welcomed Sean Okoli to the podcast and right away he thanks his teammates for helping him win the award.

Sean was excited for the 2016 season but feels he missed a lot of chances. He’s ready to come back in year 2 and wants 25 or more goals in 2017.

He didn’t know much about the city of Cincinnati but now that he’s spent a full season in town, he thinks the food around town is tremendous.

Jeff Berding recently made a trip around Europe visiting some of the more prolific soccer programs in the world.

We #AskYosief some more questions.

We hear from Griffin who called in to discuss the idea of moving the Bailey to a different location within Nippert Stadium.

Episode 38: 11/1/16

It's November and we have officially started our Countdown to Garber. Listen to Bryan, Yosief, Bill and Brad break down the biggest stories from the previous week and provide some speculation on changes coming to the USL, FC Cincinnati and MLS.

The USL announced expansion in two more cities last week with the Tampa Bay Rowdies and the Ottawa Fury joining for the 2017 season. Listen as the guys give their thoughts on how these two teams will change the league in good & bad ways.

USL President Jake Edwards stopped by last week to discuss USL expansion and some changes coming in 2017. Hear the panel explain how this will effect your favorite club or perhaps help in the upcoming season.

Your FC Cincinnati supporters groups have been working hard on how to plan ahead for the Don Garber visit. Bill explains what they have in store and how you can be involved.

Finally, the guys expand on some MLS expansion rumors. Bryan also offers some tin foil theories on what they mean and how it could impact FC Cincinnati in the short-term.

Oct 29, 2016

On this special edition of Cincinnati Soccer Talk we visit with Jake Edwards, the President of USL. Jake took time out of his very busy schedule to fill us in on some developments within US soccer’s structure, particularly Division 2 status. Plus we have breaking news surrounding league rules that we bring you EXCLUSIVELY on Cincinnati Soccer Talk.

 

Here are some highlights of our interview:
Jake talks about his playing days and how he got involved with soccer stateside after a successful career playing in England and for the Charleston Battery.

One of the bigger topics Jake is dealing with quite a bit right now is league expansion. He talks about the league’s plans for expansion and why some markets are favored over others. He also doesn’t like to put a cap or limit on how many teams could potentially play in USL. There’s also plans to make USL a 3 division league with a Central Conference hopefully added by the 2018 season.

We asked him about the league’s application to USSF regarding Division 2 status.

Jake also broke some news surrounding some league rules, particularly the 5-substitution rule.

We discuss the off field success of FC Cincinnati as Jake had a hunch this could be a big year for the orange and blue.

Now that the USL season has officially concluded, we have absolutely nothing to discuss on this week’s podcast. YEAH RIGHT! How about the big USL expansion news that dropped Tuesday? Or FC Cincinnati parting ways with an Assistant Coach? Lots and lots to discuss this week.

 

Assistant Head Coach Ryan Martin and FC Cincinnati have parted ways. Hear our thoughts on the move.

The USL announced expansion in two more regions today with the Tampa Bay Rowdies and the Ottawa Fury joining for the 2017 season.

We’re then joined by Jeremy Lance, play-by-play broadcaster for the Dayton Dynamo and co-host on Wrong Side of the Pond. In this episode we discuss his start in soccer broadcasting and his thoughts on the incredible season FC Cincinnati had.

We debuted a new segment this week called “Yo, Yo, Yo, #askyosief”. So far the responses have been great. Keep sending in your questions for Yosief!

Mark Your Calendars

We took Cincinnati Soccer Talk to the next level last night! Our very first LIVE broadcast, and fortunately for us, the show went off without a hitch! Except for maybe my Mom calling in. That was a first.

Bill, Bryan, Brad and I visit with FC Cincinnati’s GM Jeff Berding. We get his state of the union so to speak. Jeff is the man and we really appreciate him taking a few minutes out of his very busy schedule to join us on the podcast.

We take phone calls for the first time and hear from FCC fans in Cleveland, Nashville, and more.

We look ahead to the upcoming offseason, particularly the potential news headlines. Let's also not forget the soccer don, MLS Commissioner Don Garber visiting Cincinnati in late November. Come out and support the city of Cincinnati and FCC. Let's show the Commish why Cincinnati is a BIG LEAGUE TOWN!

30,187 tickets were sold for Sunday’s first round playoff loss to the Charleston Battery, 2-1. Despite the close loss, plus a complete jobbing from the referee, there were plenty of positives to take away.

Bill, Bryan, Yosief and I recap the 2-1 loss. We all still can’t get over many of you turned up for a match this summer as FC Cincinnati continued to smash attendance records.

The officiating in this match was less than stellar, BUT, it wasn’t the reason why FC Cincinnati lost.

Mark your calendars, we’ll be taking the show live more often now that we’re in the offseason.

We look ahead to an eventful offseason.

Sep 28, 2016

FC Cincinnati finished the regular season with their 4th consecutive clean sheet with a 1-0 win over Pittsburgh. They finished the year with 56 points which had they played in the Western Conference would have been enough points to have the 1st seed. Now they get set to host their first ever playoff game on Sunday when the Charleston Battery come back to town.

 

In This Episode

Brad, Bill, Yosief and I recap the 1-0 win in Pittsburgh. Sean Okoli scored his 16th goal which was tops in the USL this season. Congratulations Ugo on winning the Golden Boot!

We’ve been running our fan poll the past 2 weeks asking for YOUR player of the year. On this week’s episode we award Harrison Delbridge with that honor. He was gracious enough to visit with us to talk about his start in soccer. He also talked about being approached to come to FC Cincinnati and how much that excited him. Plus he compared the Timbers Army in Portland and The Bailey in Cincinnati, they’re very similar.

There was some other news surroundings other soccer leagues in this country that may have an effect on the future of USL. In this article by SI’s Brian Straus, the NASL is in for some troubling times ahead. You can also hear more discussion about it on the Inverted Triangle Podcast.

We look ahead to the first postseason game against the Charleston Battery, which funny enough, the first regular season USL match featured these exact two teams.

FC Cincinnati continues to dominate the headlines with their eye popping home attendances this season. Once again, the hottest team in the Queen City broke their own USL single game attendance record with over 24,000 showing up Saturday night. Now with just one more regular season game remaining, fans of the orange and blue are coming out in droves to quickly snatch up those PLAYOFF TICKETS! On to the show!

 

In This Episode

Brad, Michael and I recap the 0-0 draw in Pittsburgh. The first 60 minutes or so of that match were ok. The last 30 minutes was some of the hardest soccer to watch this season. Despite that, FC Cincinnati nearly came away with 3 points when Casey Townsend put a shot off the Pittsburgh crossbar.

We were really excited this week to have the newest member of FC Cincinnati join us on the podcast, forward Casey Townsend. Casey talked about the approach to come to Cincinnati and explained why it was a “no brainer” to make the move. He was really impressed with the home crowd on Saturday night. Just how much did he get a touch on the only goal of the game? Casey shares how it was scored as well.

FC Cincinnati went to North Carolina over the weekend and came home with 3 points and a clean sheet. Despite that close scoreline, you can argue that the match was never really in the balance. FC Cincinnati dominated from the opening kick till the final whistle. Next up, two matches in three days for the Orange and Blue.

 

In This Episode

Bryan, Yosief and I recap the win on the road against Wilmington. Good news, the clean sheet returned and it was shared by Mitch Hildebrandt and Dallas Jaye!

We are proud to announce we raised $1,100 for Sports Games for Kids during our Inaugural Cincinnati Soccer Talk FootGolf Classic.

Talk about squeaky bum time! Whew! A late handball in the box saves FC Cincinnati’s bacon. Say what you want about Sean Okoli but where would this team be without him this season? Certainly not 3rd place I can almost guarantee that! On this week’s episode we look back at the dreadful week that WAS and recap a massive win from Labor Day.

 

In This Episode

Bill, Yosief and I recap the grim performance from midweek last week in Charlotte where FC Cincinnati lost to 10-men Independence. Frankly inexcusable. I know the 3rd goal from Charlotte was a deflected own goal, but even with the man advantage, it never actually appeared that FC Cincinnati has a man advantage.

Monday’s win over Saint Louis FC saw FC Cincinnati move from 6th to 3rd in the Eastern Conference standings. I don’t think we can say it enough about just how huge those 3 points may end up at the end of the season.

We look ahead to the final matchup against the Wilmington Hammerheads, a team very much in the playoff hunt but are getting desperate and need results, much like FC Cincinnati.

The guys also provide brief breakdowns of FC Cincinnati's upcoming opponents and how they can win. FC Cincinnati travels to the hot Charlotte Independence after a cancelled match earlier in the summer. We also look towards FC Cincinnati's first home match vs. Saint Louis F.C.

Even though FC Cincinnati had the weekend off, there was an absolute ton going on around the club. The biggest event, in our opinion of course, was the Inaugural Cincinnati Soccer Talk FootGolf Classic on Saturday. Thanks to all who braved the weather and came out to support a great cause. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event so stay tuned!

 

In This Episode

Brad, Yosief, Bill and I recap the exciting events at Reeves Golf Course and 50 West Brewery at the CST FootGolf Classic. Lots of fun was had by all. FCC President Jeff Berding stopped by along with Francisco Narbón, Michael Millay, Jamie Dell and Álvaro Anton Ripoll. Thanks to you were able to raise over $1,100 for Sports Games for Kids! The event couldn’t have happened though without the support of the Joseph Auto Group, Touchstone Marketing and 513 Shirts.

When I first launched CST back in the day, I created a list of names of people that were must have guests on our show. Jason Davis was at the TOP of this list. You may recognize Jason previously as the host of such shows as Soccer Morning and The Best Soccer Show. Now he can be heard Monday-Friday onSiriusXM FC’s United States of Soccer. Jason offers up his take on FC Cincinnati story from the national perspective. We touch on the ongoing story that is MLS expansion and where FC Cincinnati fits into the discussion.

What a massive week for FC Cincinnati. They return home on Wednesday night to take on 6th place Rochester and then hit the road to New York to take on 1st place Red Bulls II on Sunday night. Both teams have taken 3 points from the orange and blue this season. We offer up our predictions as always.

Whew! What a match in Richmond! As much as we want FC Cincinnati to win every match, you’ll take a point on the road in Richmond. The Kickers were one of the hottest teams in USL heading into the match. Andrew Wiedeman’s heroics helped secure a massive point for FC Cincinnati.

 

On This Episode

Bryan, Bill, Brad and I recap the draw in Richmond. A lot of times you’ll see results, for instance the first match against Richmond, where a draw feels like a loss. This was not the case on Saturday night. There were a lot of factors involved Saturday night, the large pitch, the heat index, injuries, etc.

The first free kick goal in FC Cincinnati history belongs to Andrew Wiedeman. He scored the first USL goal for the Orange and Blue and now he adds this accolade. Add to it a USL Team of the Week honor as well, his 3rd of the season. Now FC Cincinnati has the weekend off and will need to get rested up for the Rochester Rhinos who make their first trip to Nippert next Wednesday.

We’re pleased to be joined this week on the podcast by James Brown and Mike Strauss from Spontaneous Productions. They’re putting together the film “Hometeam Advantage” which is a film about FC Cincinnati. James and Mike fill us in on the project and how you can get involved.

We then look ahead to the busy week ahead for all things soccer in the Cincinnati area. Just because there is no match this weekend doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do! We preview them all including our HUGE event Saturday night. We’re still looking for 2 more footgolf teams! To get registered, visit CincinnatiSoccerTalk.com/footgolf. If you don’t want to play footgolf but would like to come to dinner at 50 West Brewery, it’s $20.

After some much needed, and deserved time off, FC Cincinnati is hitting the road this weekend to take on 4th place Richmond in Virginia Saturday night. Richmond is one of the hottest teams in the USL at the moment so it should be a great matchup.

 

On This Episode

Bryan, Yosief and I recap the win over Montreal. Sean Okoli continues to enjoy playing against Montreal with another 2 goal performance. It also earned him his 4th USL Team of the Week honor this season. The opportunities for more goals were there. Jimmy McLaughlin hit the post, and narrowly missed another goal just wide of the post in the 1st half. Despite the clean sheet, new CB tandem Austin Berry and Even Lee struggled at time against FC Montreal.

We discuss the new CST Postgame show that was announced on Monday this week. Join us immediately following the match on Saturday night on Facebook live where YOU can have your say about FC Cincinnati.

We then looked into our crystal ball to decide the outcome of Saturday night’s match in Richmond.

After a tough mid week loss, FC Cincinnati bounces back in spectacular fashion and wins the inaugural River Cities Cup with a 2-0 win over dreaded Louisville City FC. Now the orange and blue continue to face a tough task when the Charleston Battery come to town this weekend.

 

On This Episode

Yosief, Bryan, Michael and I recap the events of last week. FC Cincinnati faced a very tough opponent in the New York Red Bulls last Wednesday and were in a winning position late in the 2nd half but 2 goals put the Baby Bulls ahead of FCC 2-1. More importantly, FC Cincinnati bounced back with a massive 2-0 win over league leaders Louisville. What a performance by the banged up squad. Injuries are hitting the midfield at the worst time. Corbin Bone though put in a shift that was nothing short of spectacular which also earned him team of the week honors.

The Dancing Man, Jimmy McLaughlin stops by for his first visit to the CST Podcast. Jimmy fills us in on life in Cincinnati and how even his expectations have been surpassed this season. He also tells us why he wears the number 20 and what exactly the BePositive Foundation means to him.

Bryan goes on a rant late in the podcast in response to some posts on Reddit regarding Supporters Groups. Are you in a Supporters Group? What do you make of these comments? Maybe you’re not in a SG? What’s keeping you from joining? We’d love your feedback!

The 2-0 result isn’t what was important from Saturday night’s friendly with Crystal Palace. The biggest takeaway was the 35,061 who showed up to witness a soccer match, the largest in Ohio EVER. The Orange and Blue held their own against their Premier League foe. Despite the week off, this week’s matches provide a massive test to see if FC Cincinnati is ready for the postseason spotlight.

 

On This Episode

Yosief, Brad, Bill and I recap the events of Saturday night. Crystal Palace came to town and knocked off FC Cincinnati 2-0 but the result wasn’t all that important. It was a celebration of soccer in Cincinnati. The South London Times is calling FC Cincinnati the “Most Exciting Soccer Team in America”. Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew even said he’d love to come back to Cincinnati in the future.

We look ahead to tonight’s match against New York Red Bulls II, or as we like to call them, the Baby Bulls. There’s a reason they’re sitting in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference folks. This team is legit.
 

The final leg of the Dirty River Derby will go down on Saturday night when FC Cincinnati plays host to Louisville City FC. It may not be the last time we see these guys if all goes well in the postseason.

Our very own Brad Weigel was on Lance McAlister’s radio program Tuesday afternoon to discuss theInaugural Cincinnati Soccer Talk FootGolf Classic. If you missed it, you can download the interview with Brad by clicking here.
