A Slice of Nadine’s Crew

By Jo Rodgers

On our first visit to the Van Buren Shelter, the very first task we were given was to slice hams. A bunch of hams. We were told to cut the slices nice and evenly, about ¼” thick. It sounds simple, but you should have seen our slices. A few were beautiful; most were a lopsided parallelogram of meat. Ms. Nadine told us that the shelter desperately needed a slicer, and obviously we agreed, but that it was simply not a priority item in their budget. Continue reading A Slice of Nadine’s Crew

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, it is likely that 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!

Where to Watch the Knockout Round

By Darren Van Paris, Aka “Rick”

Hello fellow Crew fans!

I hope everyone has had an opportunity to recover from the game this past Sunday and bask in the glory that your Columbus Crew SC men will once again be back in the MLS Cup Playoffs this Thursday. Despite the massive distractions that Gregg and the boys have had to deal with the entire year, they still found a way to get it done. Truly incredible right? Could’ve packed it in and nobody would’ve thought much of it other than 3 people on social media that want major changes at every bump along the way. Anyways, hats off to the entire staff and players who fought, scraped, and battled to get to this point. Continue reading Where to Watch the Knockout Round
