“The players and the coaches on that side of the ball are doing a fantastic job, across the board,” Blum said. “They put in a ton of work. They get together on Wednesday nights and they watch film together, eat some brownies together and spend a lot of time together. It shows.”

Fry, who also flipped TD passes of 9 yards to Johnston and 42 yards to Larry Griffin, said the Cavaliers worked to set up his two long throws.

MLS 2017 July 26 Philadelphia Union defeats Columbus Crew SC 3-0


Four days after falling on the road to Crew SC 1-0, the Union exacted revenge by posting a big 3-0 victory at home against a Columbus side that finished with nine men. C.J. Sapong led the way in the Eastern Conference tilt at Talen Energy Stadium with a goal and two assists. The other two tallies came from Ilsinho and Marcus Epps.

Crew SC fell behind in the 20th minute, but their challenge became steeper once Jonathan Mensah was sent off with a straight red card in the 35th minute. Columbus then lost Lalas Abubakar to an ejection in the 76th minute, all but ending their chances of pulling off a late comeback.

C.J. Sapong drew a first-half penalty that he was upset about not taking, and he responded by scoring a goal in the second stanza and setting up an insurance goal with a nice header. Combine those contributions with his first-half assist on Ilsinho’s winner and this was a very good day at the office for Sapong.

Quick Look…

David Villa produced one of the best goals of his entire career, shooting from 53.5 yards out, volleying over Blake into the net to deservedly earn his team their third win of the campaign in jaw-dropping style.

Man of the Match…

Jack Harrison

The winger always looked like the most likely source of a goal to break the deadlock and he delivered it in fine style with a crashing finish under Blake after a clever run around the back of the Philadelphia defense.

It wasn’t just his goal which caught the eye on the night – he was a constant menace to the Union backline, slaloming through challenges and exchanging passes with teammates throughout the contest.

What’s Next?

NYCFC return to Yankee Stadium on Sunday, April 23, 2017, where they will take on Orlando City at 1.30pm at YANKEE STADIUM

Former VP Joe Biden Attends 87ers Game


Bulls’ Balance Too Much For Sevens

NEWARK, DE – The Delaware 87ers (25-22) fell to the Windy City Bulls (22-25) 110-99 on Beau Biden Foundation Night. This was a well-contested, back and forth game, but when the Bulls took a 46-44 lead with 6:57 to go in the second quarter they never let go of their advantage. The Sevens and Bulls tied the season series 2-2.

The game had a similar feel to the Reno and Long Island affairs earlier in the week. In those two games, Delaware got timely buckets whenever their opponent got close. Tonight, the tables were turned when it became clear the Bulls had an answer for every Sevens push.

Aaron Harrison led the way for Delaware with 32 points. He hit five three-pointers and also added eight rebounds. He was one of four 87ers in double figures, with Nate Robinson (23), Roscoe Smith (13) and Russ Smith (11) rounding out the group.

In a cruel twist of fate, Fort Wayne lost to Grand Rapids by two. Had the Sevens won, they would have moved to within 1.5 games of the Mad Ants for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. As it stands, Delaware is still 2.5 games back of Fort Wayne. The 87ers have three games left, while the Mad Ants have two contests remaining.

Windy City had an astounding eight players finish in double figures. The Bulls only had nine guys see the court, making the feat all the more impressive. Former 87er David Laury III was a high man for Windy City, pacing the club with 17 points. He was traded to the Bulls on March 2.

Penn couldn’t run the ball nor pass the ball simply resembling a junior varsity team playing way out of their league, Shame, Shame, Shame.

U.S. Soccer fires national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann


Jurgen Klinsmann has been fired as the manager of the United States, the U.S. Soccer Federation announced on Monday.Klinsmann took over the U.S. men’s squad in 2011 and led them into the knockout stage at the 2014 World Cup.

But disappointing results since then put his job in jeopardy, with defeats to Mexico and Costa Rica in World Cup qualifiers this month proving to be the last straw.

“Today we made the difficult decision of parting ways with Jurgen Klinsmann, our head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team and Technical Director,” a U.S. Soccer statement said.

“We want to thank Jurgen for his hard work and commitment during these last five years. He took pride in having the responsibility of steering the program, and there were considerable achievements along the way.

“Many are aware of the historic victories, including leading us out of the Group of Death to the Round of 16 in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but there were also lesser publicized efforts behind the scenes.

He challenged everyone in the U.S. Soccer community to think about things in new ways, and thanks to his efforts we have grown as an organization and expect there will be benefits from his work for years to come.

“While we remain confident that we have quality players to help us advance to Russia 2018, the form and growth of the team up to this point left us convinced that we need to go in a different direction.

With the next qualifying match in late March, we have several months to refocus the group and determine the best way forward to ensure a successful journey to qualify for our eighth-consecutive World Cup.

“There has never been a greater time for soccer in this country, and with the support and efforts of the millions of fans, sponsors, media and friends, we look forward to continued progress in the game we all love.”
