The team and I are gearing up for a big weekend in Minnesota vs the Stars and are very motivated and excited to continue on our quest to get our first win on the young season. Although the past four games have all ended up in a tie, the team still feels really good about the progress we are making. And let us all still remember, we are still one of the two undefeated teams in the league.
Do not get me wrong. I am disappointed along with everyone else about not getting a couple wins at home, but the past is the past, and the only way to get results in the future is to look ahead, not back.
The group has had a good week of practice so far and are really enjoying our new permanent home up in Fort Lauderdale. The training facilities are really nice and the locker room is great.
On behalf of the team, I wanted to give a quick shout out to all the fans that have been coming to support us and all of the friends and family that have been watching us online. Thank you. We really appreciate it!
Looking ahead, hopefully we can continue playing well and bring back 3 points from Minnesota.
All the best.
Our PR Director, Ignacio Rodriguez, made his way out to an Irish pub called Biddy Earlys to watch Manchester United take on Chelsea over the weekend. Ignacio went along with one of Miami FC's latest signings, Martyn Lancaster, to check out the game and hang out with some the local fans. Here's Martyn having a hearty breakfast meal [right]!
Needless to say, the English love their soccer! Ignacio and Martyn had a fantastic time bonding with the English fans at the pub as they cheered on their teams. Unfortunately for the Man U fans, Chelsea picked up the victory. The picture say it all!
The owners of the pub were warm and welcoming, they really have a good place going with Earlys. Great atmosphere to watch some great soccer!
There is a frenzy for soccer at the grassroots level in South Florida from all different kinds of backgrounds. It really is quite a reflection of the diversity that exists in this region.
As the season nears, we hope to channel some of that excitement in the stands with the exciting product Miami FC will be on the field. Welcome to exciting times!
