TICCPod Ep 79 – Mother’s Day mayhem, Open Cup calamity, the questions return

It’s been a wild week for the Cosmos. A dive against Puerto Rico FC likely leads to a win. A match against a PDL side leads to a disastrous exit from the Open Cup. And the team is now off playing a friendly in Saudi Arabia.

Historically, the team’s exit from the Cup (usually in the Round of 16) has led to existential questions about the state of the team and the long-term. With the Cosmos crashing out immediately, the questions begin now.

We talk your thoughts on the state of the Cosmos and share ours. It’s only five months into new ownership and the need from the fans for answers has just begun.

We get some exclusive words with Giovanni Savarese, Jimmy Maurer and Eric Calvillo after the Reading surprise, discuss league and Open Cup results and much more on this edition of TICCPod. Continue reading
