Judge Brown’s ruling

The show must go on! The PSV/MLS motion to dismiss was denied. Judge Brown released over 50-pages explaining his reasoning and stated, “planting oneself in the seats of the sports team’s home venue imbeds a common root that unites and sprouts a forest of fans growing from the same soil” [#RespectYourRoots #SaveTheCrew]. The next phase in the case is the discovery phase. However, with a sale close to agreement, it is likely this phase will be on hold. We will likely never know how the case would ultimately turn out since it seems likely the course of the case will change soon. Continue reading Weekly Recap 12/12/18

Columbus Crew Player News

The Crew exercised the contract options on eight players from the 2018 roster and reached a new contract agreement with defender Lalas Abubakar. The Crew exercised the options of goalkeepers Jon Kempin and Ben Lungaard; defenders Alex Crognale, Connor Maloney, Gaston Sauro and Josh Williams; and midfielders Luis Argudo and Niko Hansen. The team continues to work with Argentine club Newell’s Old Boys to complete a deal for defender Milton Valenzuela. Unfortunately, the club declined options on goalkeeper Logan Ketterer; midfielders Ricardo Clark, Mike Grella and Cristian Martinez; and forward Adam Jahn. They will all be missed. In addition Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffen seems all but certain to complete a move to Manchester City, and may even be loaned elsewhere for the 2019 campaign. Continue reading Weekly Recap 11/28/18

D.C. United vs Columbus Crew:

Federico ‘Pipa’ Higuaín and the Columbus Crew conquered D.C. United in their first home playoff game at Audi Field. Higuaín, scored a goal in regulation, one in additional time, and also slotted home his penalty kick. The penalty kick finish was a very familiar scenario for Columbus, as we progressed in the playoffs last year after a win at Atlanta. Zack Steffen once again stopped multiple penalty kicks. What can’t he do? Some fans traveled to D.C. for the game, but back home, local pubs were at capacity as Crew fans celebrated the away victory. Save The Crew allies including Endeavour Brewing, Land Grant, Platform and more hosted watch parties for the playoff game. Hope to see you all back at these establishments next Sunday!

The Legend’s game took place at the Ohio Historical Connection in coordination with Greater Columbus Sports Commission, and featured many Columbus Crew legends.

Save(d) The Crew:

Oh the irony. Ohio Revised Code 9.67 was created by legislators due to the Browns relocation to Baltimore. More than 20 years later, a group of investors led by the Browns ownership stated that they are in the final negotiation to purchase the Columbus Crew. This news, which previously was a dream, became a reality on Friday. We gathered on Friday at business ally Endeavor Brewing to celebrate as the saga has nearly ended, almost a year to the day from that nightmare that occurred on October 16th, 2017. Everyone involved in the Save The Crew movement, from Columbus, to across Ohio, to across the globe played a part in this success story. The doubters stated that a few “hundred” (hah) supporters would not be able to change the direction. Continue reading Monday Recap 10/15/18

Italian Festival:

Members from the STC team set up a tent at this past weekend’s Columbus Italian Festival. The tent saw a lot of traffic as many people came to chat about the Crew. Some individuals reminisced about legends such as Brian McBride, while others chatted optimistically about the future of the team. The STC team gave out dozens of stickers, as many people wanted to take something home with them (perhaps, we’ll see the stickers show up in Savannah, GA). We would like to give a MASSIVE thank you to the STC volunteers, and everyone that came out to the tent to support us. Continue reading Monday Recap 10/8/18

2008 MLS Cup Anniversary:

As we know,  2018 marks the ten year anniversary of our first and only MLS cup victory. Goals from Ale Moreno, Chad Marshall, and Frankie Hejduk sealed the win for the Crew. On Saturday members from the 2008 championship team came to Mapfre to celebrate their anniversary. Players such as Gino Padula, William Hesmer, Frankie, and Duncan Oughton received their honors before running across the field to the Nordecke to celebrate – and to join in the “Save The Crew!” chants. These legendary players from Crew lore are a part of our club’s great history. Perhaps, in another 10 years we will celebrate the 2008 MLS Cup win AND the 2018 MLS Cup win. Save The Crew!

Earnie Stewart at Mapfre:

Earnie Stewart is the current general manager of the USMNT. He is in charge of finding a new head coach for the National team. As you have all heard, our own Gregg Berhalter leads the list of candidates for the job. Berhalter has been the head coach of Crew since the 2014 season. During his tenure, the team has appeared in one MLS Cup, two Eastern Conference Finals (winning one) and made three playoff appearances in four seasons. Gregg is well on his way on leading the Crew to a fourth playoff birth. Do you want to see Gregg take the opening as USMNT coach? Continue reading Monday Recap 9/24/2018
