Highlights from this week’s show.

We started off this week’s show by recapping last week’s 1-0 win over the Charleston Battery. For the 3rd straight year, FC Cincinnati opened the year in South Carolina and the 3rd time is the charm. After losing their first two tries, FC Cincinnati finally started a USL campaign with a win, largely thanks to left-back Blake Smith who scored the only goal of the match. Evan Newton also had 3 massive saves to keep the Battery scoreless. It wasn’t pretty, but 3 points on the road at a place they haven’t won is a good first step to the 2018 campaign.

We welcome new FC Cincinnati Technical Director, Luke Sassano, to the show this week. Sassano has joined FC Cincinnati after spending a few years with the New York Cosmos. I speak for a few of us here at CST, we came away very impressed with the answers Luke gave us on the podcast. He’s got big plans for this club and we’re really looking forward to see the direction he’ll take FC Cincinnati. To learn more about Sassano, read about him here.

It wouldn’t be an episode of CST without discussing MLS expansion and stadium locations. Though, FC Cincinnati has made life on us easier by eliminating one of the 3 sites.

We wrapped the show this week by filling you in on the fun things we’ve got upcoming here at CST, particularly the 3rd Annual Cincinnati Soccer Talk Footgolf Classic!
