It’s sad times around Miami-Dade County, as The Miami FC are out of the U.S. Open Cup and currently enduring a three-game losing streak. Matt and Omar break it down. Plus, they look ahead to the 2017-2018 English Premier League season. Join us, won’t you?
What a difference a year makes.
Back in 2016 with the spring season of the NASL drawing to a close, The Miami FC were struggling. Porous at the back and mis-firing up front, the promise the franchise showed off the pitch had not been fulfilled. They finished 11th of 11 and deserved no more than that.
Fast-forward 12 months and Alessandro Nesta’s men are playing scintillating soccer, marauding their way to the U.S. Open Cup quarterfinals and trouncing teams by four goals… seven goals even, while also keeping clean sheets. So what has changed? In truth, it’s not been a revolution but an evolution.
Get ready for the biggest home match in The Miami FC’s history! We’ve got Matt, Drew, Omar and a special appearance by Lee Ifans to talk about every angle of this matchup, plus much more! Join us, won’t you?
It shouldn’t have to be said that Miami’s recent form is impressive. No losses in their last 12 matches across all competitions and statement wins including 4-0 and 3-1 tallies against Jacksonville and Orlando, respectively. The next challenge that awaits is the quintessential thorn in the Miami FC side: none other than the New York Cosmos. New York comes into the match tied for second in the NASL table, seven points behind Miami. In the five league matches so far between the two squads, the Cosmos have been able to take 12 points from Miami, with the Blues lone win spoiling New York’s opening night at MCU Park this season. In the highly anticipated clash of the old guard vs. the new guard, potential spring championship implications are at stake.
