Too Late; Didn't Recap: It was a loooooong match that ended in a 0-0 draw. The new normal for FCC seems to be draws, when last year they only managed 6 all season. Here is your late night take out.

  • Another match fans will feel disapointed they didn't win.
  • A team that just crushed FCC 3-0 was played to a draw and looked like the worse side.
  • This is a team that now leads the league in clean sheets, one year removed from being one of the worst defenses in MLS history.
  • Stam is making huge progress.
  • FCC started off on the front foot and basically never let go.
  • Chicago fouled a lot this game, a lot. Again.
  • So many Chicago fouls were never called.
  • FC Cincinnati is pressing on a trigger, usually the second back pass in a row, and it threw Chicago off to start the match.
  • Huge praise to Greg Garza, maybe his best FCC performance to date.
  • Garza's passing ability is night and day from Gutman.
  • With Garza being able to connect passes to the midfield, the offense was able to sustain attacks and rebuild multiple times.
  • Regattin either being given a lot of freedom or taking a lot of liberty, but he is everywhere.
  • Frankie Amaya is relentless.
  • If Frankie Amaya isn't the best player on this team, he's 1-B to whoever you're putting up top.
  • Frankie's defense is on full display, but his ability to go forward is being pulled back.
  • Joe Gyau came into this match with the best form and an argument for best player on the team, and he didn't have a bad game.
  • I would love to hear what Waston's haters took issue with this game.
  • Waston was lock-down solid this match and is the best player in MLS in the air.
  • van der Werff is a huge upgrade from Pettersson.
  • van der Werff is very vocal directing traffic and positioning.
    Deplange has his shaky moment, but you can see why he plays every match under every manager.
  • The defense playing out of the back is stressful. Maybe because it's new, maybe because there are a lot of near misses, but it's not comfortable.
  • de Jong's passing is superb.
  • He does get out of position and is slow to get back. But the fluidity of this team allows for that.
  • A midfield of de Jong and Medunjanin was a lot better than expected.
  • FCC had a calmness about them in possession that we have not seen for a few years now. Very easy on the eyes.
  • Locadia... he's got a monkey on his back.
  • Once the first goal goes in for him, he'll be in form. Right? Right!?
  • So many chances are there but at least the chances are there. He is certainly trying and you can't say he lacks effort.
  • So long as he keeps getting into position, he'll score goals.
  • Not many teams can bring two DP's off the bench in the 64' of a tie game, but FCC did just that.
  • Kubo and Cruz played well, if unremarkable.
  • Before coming to Cincinnati Kubo was a striker, and an occasional winger. Now he seems to be only a midfielder. Very odd.
  • The flexibility of this team's shape, being able to comfortably move between 3, 5, and 4 at the back is something we've never seen before from an FC Cincinnati team.
  • Tyton should be the starter going forward until he gets hurt. Ride that hot hand.
  • Plenty to be confident about going into Columbus on Sunday.
  • How much better is this than getting beat 7-1 and 5-2?
  • This team is adding more talent and is proving very difficult to beat already.
  • Hell is Real.
