Before we get started on the very rare double recap article below, we want to apologize for the lack of structure over the recent weeks. After Hurricane Irma, it is safe to say that we have been in quite a lull. Everyone in the Magic City Soccer family is safe and our families are doing well.
Matt and Omar take time before the NASL Fall Season kicks off to talk about all kinds of things, including but not limited to: San Francisco Deltas, Bruce Matheson, Pro/Rel, Socialism, and El Clasico Miami. 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.
After our short Independence Day sabbatical, Matt, Drew and Omar are back! We talk Atlanta, we talk North Carolina (briefly), we talk Cincinnati and we talk San Francisco (and seven awesome goals). Join us, won’t you?
It was over after 15 minutes.
In a stunning display of dominance, The Miami FC scored three times against the San Francisco Deltas in 15 minutes Saturday night. After that, they didn’t let up and and won in a showing befitting a champion, 7-0.
The win clinched the NASL Spring Chanpionship for Miami FC, the first title for a professional soccer team in this city’s history.
All good things must come to an end, and for The Miami FC, its 14-game unbeaten streak come to an end in Cary, N.C. on July 4, as North Carolina took advantage of miscommunication and grinded out a 1-0 victory.
