Excited to lose to (draws random team) Orlando in the open cup this year!

Nah, we'd never draw Orlando.  We win it all, we lose in the final, or we lose to Revs/Philly/NYC.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

The final being August 27/28th is way earlier than it normally has been. Usually was middle to late September but I guess it makes sense with the MLS regular season being more condensed as well.

I like that all games will be on ESPN+, however from the quater final round to the final those matches should be on ESPN,ESPN2, ESPNNEWS etc as well. Unfortunately its not according to what I read. That's BS.

NJ clubs are NYRB, RB U-23s & FC Motown.
NYC clubs are BoyCity & Cosmos B.
Anyone know about https://en.m.wikiped...rtford_Athletic?
No mention of 2018 participants Brooklyn Italians, Kingston Stockade, Lansdowne Bhoys, Long Island Rough Riders, or Ocean City Noreasters.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

ESPN is doing the exact same thing with the FA Cup, so not hugely surprising.

ESPN+ is an amazing service for watching games live, but unfortunately utterly useless for replays considering it tells you the score by default any time you bring up a game...

Agree.  Love ESPN+.  The replay part sucks, but I'll take that negative.

I just checked (on Android at least) and they actually fixed this which is great. Now instead of the game's box score you just get a list of other games available to watch. Huge, huge, improvement from ESPN on that.

When we advanced to the Final against SKC, that game was on ESPN2. I'd imagine a bare minimum of that will ultimately be on one of the ESPN's, especially considering that they now have exclusive rights.

Hartford is a new USL Championship team featuring former Red Bull, Jose Angulo. On paper, solid team but on the older side.

All lower level 2018 participants mentioned above did not qualify this year.

So there are going to be two teams named Hartford?
Playing 9 miles apart?

How did RB U-23 qualify?
Ranked 11th in USL-2, which qualified only 10?

NPSL qualified 14. Brooklyn ranked 17th, FC Monmouth 29th.
