Highlights from this week’s show. The captain of this week’s episode is Tim Bronsil! Tim has generously supported CST over at CincinnatiSoccerTalk.com/support. You should too! John Harkes is a legend in US Soccer. He’s the first American player to play in the Premier League in England. He got his start in England with Sheffield Wednesday, arguably the greatest club name in England, in my opinion. He went on to play for Derby County and had a loan stint with West Ham United. John then came home stateside when MLS launched in 1996 joining DC United where he helped them win the first ever MLS Cup. He went on to also play for the New England Revolution and Columbus Crew. FC Cincinnati is his first coaching stint after many years as a fantastic broadcaster on ESPN and SiriusXM FC. John discusses the new roster for 2017 and hints that there may be more signings to come. He offers us up his take on Video Assistant Referees though clearly it’s a sore subject amongst many FC Cincinnati faithful. He hasn’t tried Skyline Chili, yet. Tough act to follow but Payne Rankin knocked it out of the park. Payne is the President of The Pride Supporters Group and they have a big event coming up this weekend. The Membership Bash and Scarf Release Party is Friday, January 27th at Molly Malone’s in Covington. Sounds like it’s going to be a great time so don’t miss it! DON’T FORGET!
