FC Cincinnati podcast: FCC goes unbeaten in three-match homestand

So often with Futbol Club Cincinnati, the biggest storylines surrounding the second-tier soccer club have focused on everything off the pitch.

What’s the latest with a soccer-specific stadium? Is promotion to Major League Soccer actually realistic?

Well, not to say the questions have been answered, but the spotlight has finally focused on what actually matters: play on the pitch.

In its first home stand, FC Cincinnati went unbeaten with a win and two draws from three matched in eight days at Nippert Stadium.

More impressive, though, were the results compared to the strength of the opponents. Cincinnati entered all three matches against the team that was then top of the league.

Here’s a quick podcast breaking down the matches, the club’s first month and analysis of the offseason summer signings.
