It is a Cinderella tournament now.
Philly, Orlando & Minnesota in the semis.

NYCFC-PTSC re-broadcast on FS1 now.

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

I stopped caring about other teams winning cups a long time ago... especially something as dubious as this one, or the "Campeones" garbage they made up last year. As long as its not DC or the blue slavers, whatever. Having those three shields helps.

 

That being said, go Gio.

I'm happy that nycfc got knocked out. Since Portland, Minnesota and Orlando haven't eliminated us from a competition yet I don't care if any of them win. Fuck Philly.

Wasn't Gio a coach in the academy for a little while and then they got rid of him for some reason?

He was in charge of the whole academy not for a little while, but a few years. He helped build it from ground up.

I think the official story was he cared more about winning than developing. But there was some stuff behind the scenes, which some people might know more...

MdG got him fired during MdG's first stint here. He was replaced by someone who told the club that he was our own reserve team's head coach a few years prior. I had commented on the press release that he was never the head coach of our reserve team. He was fired in two weeks. Why? He lied about being the reserve team head coach. He was the assistant coach and was fired from that role.
Clear example of how the organization does not pay any attention to history.

"It was very sour, very difficult, he said. It came in a moment where there was a lot of hard work, Actually, I remember it was a great article in Soccer America saying the [Red Bulls] Academy was one of the best at the time. The decision made did not have anything to do with the person, the reputation, my work. It just came from a person who just did not understand about soccer. He had no idea about what the connection is between a player and a club, had no understanding of the importance of being in that position to carry. He came from a different world that was difficult to understand what soccer was. It was very difficult to work with a person like that.
In the end, I took a stand, I wasnt going to accept this person to be the same way he had kept on being with his approach to the game. I am always a purist, Im 100 percent to soccer. At that point, he felt it was his decision to separate me from my job. It was very sour because it was a club that I loved being part of. I had a connection with the players. We created a great program."
