The highly anticipated rematch between the top two teams in the NASL fall table is here. As we mentioned last week, the fall season has been a reverse of fortune for teams who found themselves at the bottom in the spring. Positions three and four are currently held by Edmonton and North Carolina who need a magical run in this campaign to earn a spot in the NASL playoffs.
It’s a two-man operation, as Matt and Drew both preview and review The Miami FC’s matchups with Puerto Rico FC. We talk about the establishment of the NISA and how the new third-division league might impact soccer in Miami-Dade County. Plus, we talk about the start of the 2018 U.S. Open Cup, which will begin three days after the end of the 2017 U.S. Open Cup. Join us, won’t you?
It’s been a while since Miami FC have faced off against the football club from “La Isla Bonita”. These teams know each other well although it doesn’t really seem that they play often. Perhaps that’s because these games have been less notable than those against other NASL foes.
Finally, Drew, Matt and Omar are back together! The results are average at best! We talk about Hurricanes and FIU women’s soccer, the start of the APSL fall season, Miami FC player acquisitions and game results, European club football and the U.S. facing off in the Hex. Join us, won’t you?
Four billion dollars. And now a court case. You’ve got to give it to Riccardo Silva, when he puts his mind to something he really goes at it! Loads has been written about the merits of promotion and relegation and if it can work in North America.
I think it’s something that needs to happen but there’s obviously some opposition. So how do we turn a few more people on to the idea? How do you sell the terrifying, gut-wrenching fear of relegation to American sports fans? Well here are some options.
Miami needed to provide an answer to its critics coming into Saturday’s game against Indianapolis. Boy did they ever make a response. After a miserable start to the fall campaign, that includes the end of the cup run, Miami returned with a similar flair that we had gotten used to in the spring.
Miami enters this game venturing into uncharted territory. Only once in club history have they dropped four matches in a row. To call the third game of the fall season a must win is hyperbole at best, however, that may be the sentiment inside the locker room tonight for the Blues.
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?

On the day following the statement made by Dade Brigade with their #OpenSoccer tifo, Miami FC have filed a lawsuit in the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). Alongside Miami, the Kingston Stockade (New York/NPSL) joined the motion calling for implementation of promotion and relegation within the United States pyramid. Why such a strong action from the Riccardo Silva owned team? Let’s jump back to last week.
After the disappointment against FC Cincinnati in Wednesday’s quarter-final cup action, Miami finds themselves trying to pick up the pieces after losing two straight games. It’s been a while since Nesta & Company have lost multiple matches in a row. The last time Miami FC dropped repeated matches was towards the end of the fall season in 2016. Dropping three in a row? You have to go back to the nightmarish spring season of 2016.
