The Best of Both Worlds – 2014 FBM Beer-view: Columbus Crew

With Major League Soccer and the rest of American soccer kicking off we've curated an impressive list of players, personalities, broadcasters, front office folk, and fans to have them tell us (and you) about their upcoming 2014 season.

And, of course, pair their hopes and dreams for this season with a tasty local brew.

That's not just a preview… it's a “beer-view”.


By Frankie Hejduk / USMNT and Columbus Crew LEGEND (and Free Beer Movement Spokeperson)

Times are definitely a changin’ over in the “MASSIVE” city of Columbus.  Crew fans are abuzz over this “New Era” of soccer.  NEW owner, NEW coaching staff, NEW home jersey, NEW songs, NEW chants, NEW team…The Black and Gold are ready to rock!!

With some new experienced additions looking to make an immediate impact to get the Crew back to their winning ways, things are looking bright gold.  Newcomers Clarke, Parkhurst, Gonzalez and Francis all have experience, three of which are currently in national team pools, and should bring leadership qualities to the backline.

The midfield will be as solid as ever with Higuain leading the way and Will Trapp holding down the fort.  A couple more additions in Paladini and two-time MLS Champion Hector Jimenez will provide more added experience, speed and ball possession to this “New Crew” soccer which likes to keep the ball buzzin’!!

Up front, the Crew have a number of options.  And whether they go with the speed of Oduro, the grit and fight of Arrieta or the newly signed 6’6” Adam Bedall, all bring a different look for the Crew. 

If preseason was any indication of what the Black and Gold can do, it should be a “MASSIVE” ride for the Crew this year.

Can Coach Berhalter and his All-Star coaching staff lead the Black and Gold back into the playoffs and let the Nordecke rock?…I…I believe…I believe that we will win…I believe that we will win!!
