The Start

Columbus Crew recently lost their head coach Gregg Berhalter after he had left the club so sudden, they appointed professional american coach Xavier Moreno (which is his other name) who is 25 and is a coach who is well known to Columbus Crew as he had played there in youth.

Columbus Crew was formed into MLS in 1996 during their time they have won 1 MLS Cup (2008) and 3 Supporters Shields (2004,2008,2009)
Woop, woop! :)
Hope you don't mind, I centred the pics a bit more to make it look a little nicer :)
Good luck mate :)

March 2013

Chivas USA (2) VS (1) Columbus Crew

I can honestly say we lost this match because our match fitness was low, but we couldn't really attack and finish this match.

POTM : Eric Avila (Chivas USA)

Vancouver Whitecaps (1) VS (1) Columbus Crew

I was distraught when Camilo scored that late goal. I thought it was offside but the referee didn't, but I am happy at our improvement from last game.

POTM : Glauber (Columbus Crew)

Columbus Crew (2) VS (0) San Jose Earthquakes

Great game for us as Federico Higuain scored two goals, we are defending very good lately, I can tell the team is very pumped. I was frightened when Higuain missed the first penalty, but he later redeemed himself.

POTM : Federico Higuain (Columbus Crew}

DC United (3) VS (4) Columbus Crew

What a game! I decided to try out a new formation this match and we scored 4 goals! They only scored one on their own but we gave out 2 own goals from set pieces. Another win for us!

POTM : Dominic Oduro (Columbus Crew)

League Table

I take being 4th place very good. Considering on how we are supposed to finish mid-table in the league. However i'm not just going to stop at 4th.

Player Month : Federico Higuain

He scored 4 goals for us this season and helped us win in all of them.


Mostly loans out or waivers. Aureliano Torres just didn't work out for us and he had a hefty wage so I had to waiver him.

Quick Note

If you guys want a Squad Report in the next update comment for it below!
Good start mate, 4th place isn't bad at all :D
You keep changing your formations each match and don't let your team grow into your tactics. On the other hand, you signed Giorgi Makaridze who is a great MLS-level goalkeeper.
Not a bad start, hopefully you can build on this :)
Nice banner, and decent results :D
Madrid Thanks

Eb I think I found a final one for now and Yep

Neal Thanks

Lucas I know right :P and Yep
Good results and you have a team to keep improving


You know that one guy that always doesn't like you? When your a manager, a player, there will always be critics as I have experienced recently.

The incident even found it's way to Facebook.

He seems to be challenging Xavier's team strength and teamwork by calling San Jose , DC United low teams and calling Chicago a high team to beat.

Who will succeed in wordplay?
I started to support The Crew when I came to the States! heard they had a reputation for being dirty lets hope you can give them a better name haha! looking good so far !
Chicago are indeed a big team, can't wait for them to whoop you guys ;)
