Historic Games: Cosmos win 6-2


By: Stephen Brandt

October 10, 1981 - In a match against Valur FC in Reykjavic Iceland, Giorgio Chingalla scored three goals, Vladislav Bogicevic scored two, and Julio Cesar Romero got the last one as the Cosmos went to 1-1-1 on their tour. Romero had three assists to go with his goal. They played before a crowd of 10,500 and in 30 degree weather with 20 mph winds.

As with anything I write for the Borough Boys, if you have anything to add, please feel free to add anything to heighten the knowledge of the game. The more we talk about the Cosmos the more the world will know, and the more the club will be brought into the next century.

Beckham and family to move to NYC?


According to this story, Posh is considering the move to further her fashion business. This bit of news should stir up a lot of Beckham to be involved with the Cosmos rumors, especially being his best friend Terry Byrne is on the Board of Directors.

Would you like to see Beckham involved in some capacity?

Where We Stand


Being on the cusp of a new year and a full schedule of “festive period” premiership games, got us thinking about where we stand in the final weeks of 2010.

After a meeting early in the year, The Borough Boys jumped on board with the new ownership group of the New York Cosmos. They shared with us a business plan and time-line for 2010 and everything in that plan came to fruition.

From Pele standing in a
Queens park announcing a return of the New York Cosmos to MLS Commissioner Don Garber saying how he is impressed with the Cosmos, there is, we believe, for the first time since Fred Wilpon talked about MLS in 2007 new reason for optimism for a New York City based soccer club.

Some famous Cosmos

By: Stephen Brandt

It’s a shame that there isn’t a database of good Cosmos History, and as you’re Cosmos Historian, I’m attempting to do that for future generations. However, being the first to compile something for the club is very hard. Sometimes I wish that the Club had a database they could share, so younger  fans could live the love of the club. Sadly I don’t think that’s true, but that’s life. From Wikipedia here’s my contribution for the week.

Cosmos vs. Santos in June?


We have heard the New York Cosmos talk about holding "inspirational" games and they have even mentioned some potential dates. While nothing is confirmed; sources are saying there is a chance for a game on June 25th at the New Meadowlands against Santos.

While we wait for confirmation, The Borough Boys have already begun discussions to set up buses from midtown as well as a supporters section for any "inspirational" games. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
