Highlights from this week’s show.
Brad, Boston, Rob and I recap the loss last week to Minnesota United FC in the US Open Cup. Despite the loss, FC Cincinnati hung with a team from MLS. Though the penalty shootout did not go as we had hoped, a lot of good came from the match. Russell Cicerone was dynamite and earned himself another start on Saturday against North Carolina.
Speaking of North Carolina, the Orange and Blue road warriors put it to them this past weekend in 2-0 win. Cicerone continued to impress. His weaving run helped setup Danni Konig’s 17th goal in FC Cincinnati history, making him the club’s all-time scoring leader.
Mike Lahoud joined FC Cincinnati very last in the 2018 preseason, but boy are we glad he did. After spending years around Major League Soccer and last year with Miami FC, Luke Sassano and Alan Koch landed a solid midfielder in Lahoud. The last few weeks that he’s been on the pitch, the midfield play has been stellar. Lahoud, Ryan, Walker, Albadawi have connected extremely well of late. Should be a fun rest of the summer as we watch this group continue to grow. Really enjoyed our conversation with Mike tonight.
It’s another busy week ahead for FC Cincinnati as they get set to host Bethlehem Steel and Richmond on Wednesday and Saturday respectively.
Boston tried his best to #SavetheCrew. Here he is on Local 12 talking about Saturday’s match and what the rivalry means to the city. CLICK HERE TO WATCH

Tweet of the Week
They missed a great episode of CST.
Not sure why @realDonaldTrump and Kim Jong Un scheduled their Singapore meeting at the same time as CST. Don’t they know they should be watching Cincy Soccer Talk?
