20 Years of Major League Soccer: Dwight Burgess In my second installment celebrating 20 years of Major League Soccer, I interview longtime Columbus Crew SC broadcaster, Dwight Burgess. Often times in sports, broadcasters become synonymous with the team they call games for, and this certainly rings true with Columbus Crew SC and Dwight Burgess. Be it […]
Columbus Crew SC welcomed Orlando City SC to MAPFRE stadium for the first time and had no plans on letting them continue their away match points streak. This home game was one that Columbus was looking forward to for a while as they had about ten thousand miles of travel in the past week in […]
Columbus Crew SC’s biggest foe in the first few weeks of the season has not been TFC or late goals or stoppage time, it has been the MLS Schedule makers. To start a season with two games, than a bye week for absolutely no reason at all, in between home games at MAPFRE Stadium is […]
It was Crewsmas Eve and all through the city not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. All Tifo’s were hung in the stands with care in the hopes that St. Frankie soon would be there…
The Columbus Crew have secured a 3rd place Eastern Conference finish and will play the New England Revolution in the first round of the playoffs.
The Crew managed a resounding victory at home on Saturday night against the Houston Dynamo. It was the 2nd straight emphatic home victory for the Crew, and this great run of form looks to be coming at the perfect time for the Crew’s playoff push.
Columbus took home only 1 point in a thrilling contest in Portland against the Timbers. Gregg Berhalter had mentioned his intentions to switch around some of the squad due to the inept performances in recent weeks, but his decision was forced for this game with a couple members leaving for international duty.
The Columbus Crew has been beaten for the third match in a row, winless in 7 matches, and hasn’t scored a goal in the last 321 minutes of MLS play. Vancouver continued a decent run with their second consecutive win.
The Columbus Crew are becoming somewhat of a late game heroics type of team, despite the season being so young. For the second game in 4 games, the Crew scored deep into stoppage time to salvage some points. This time it was Hector Jimenez, and the Crew was able to escape from a relatively miserable day against […]
The Columbus Crew has started the season undefeated at 3-0-0 and continues to improve the record for best start to a season in club history. The black and gold played in front of a very hostile crowd in Seattle on Saturday night and came away with all 3 points in a combative match.
The Columbus Crew has started off the season with two straight wins for the first time in club history. A road victory against the struggling DC United is one thing, but a 2-1 win at home, against a good Philadelphia Union side, is just the thing to bring the Crew back into the collective MLS […]
Every year, when the beginning of March rolls around, the MLS season starts with a sense of optimism for supporters around the league.

Going into the Saturday night game in New England, the black and gold had to win their final two games of the season (both against the New England Revolution) and hope for results in other places around the MLS to go in their favor. The Revolution themselves were still vying for a playoff spot coming […]
The Brian Bliss – Columbus Crew era is officially on a hot streak. The Crew welcomed rivals Chicago Fire to Crew Stadium on Saturday in a clash that would go a long way in deciding the playoff fates of both teams. The Crew came into the game 4 points behind Chicago, in 8th place and […]
Optimism abounds in Columbus again. It’s been a while since a little bit of enthusiasm has surfaced in Ohio. A lot of credit has to be given to Brian Bliss and the way he has stepped up to the interim coaching job he was thrust into a month ago. Bliss seems to have instilled some […]
