[powerpress]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.
Pards was full of praise for last night’s opponents and revealed his hopes of a re-match in the future. #CPFCTOUR16https://t.co/NzaDq1IsyD

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.
