We start the show off this week by recapping the win over Indy Eleven. There’s been quite a bit of debate on social media about how the team is currently performing. It’s hard to argue with results. It’s the first time in franchise history that FC Cincinnati has won their first two games of a season, let alone not concede a goal in the process. Should Manu Ledesma feature more centrally rather than out wide? Should Richie Ryan be given more time on the ball rather than being bypassed for long balls to the forward and wingers? It makes for a fun debate, but again, FC Cincinnati already has 6 points away from home this year. They only mustered up 12 points all of 2017. I’d say that’s an improvement.
A big reason why FC Cincinnati held another clean sheet on Saturday night was due to the massive double save Evan Newton had in the match after a penalty kick was incorrectly awarded to Indy’s Jack McInerney. Newton didn’t let it bother him. He stepped up and saved the ensuing PK as well as the quick rebound on the miss from Ben Speas. Despite his fiery competitiveness on the pitch, Newton’s recently shown a softer compassionate side off the pitch as well. Listen in to this week’s episode to find out how Evan’s gotten involved in this community.
