#ORLvTBR Match Ratings

By JEFF HERNDEN On Thursday the Tampa Bay Rowdies traveled across I-4 for their second meeting with Orlando City B.  Coming off an impressive attacking display against FC Cincinnati that came with changes in both formation and tactics, Head Coach Stuart Campbell chose to stick with the 4-3-3 formation and named an unchanged team. While the […]

#TBRvFCC Player Ratings

By JEFF HERNDEN Lightning struck on Thursday night at Al Lang in memorable fashion as the Rowdies ended both their long goal-scoring drought and their even longer winless streak. As impressive as the lightning strikes just before half-time were that caused the nearly two hour weather delay, the strikes on the pitch were equally impressive. […]

By JEFF HERNDEN Although Matt Pickens earned my Man of the Match award for this one, I could easily have given the award to Ralph’s Mob for their incredible show of support. Coach Stuart Campbell again made several changes to his starting XI due to Deshorn Brown heading to D.C. United, and injuries to Michael Nanchoff and Leo Fernandes. Campbell stuck with […]

Rowdies unable to mount second consecutive comeback, fall 1-0 away to Rhinos

By JEFF HERNDEN For the second match in a row, the Tampa Bay Rowdies found themselves trailing at the half due to a slow start and an early concession.  This time, though, the Rowdies were not able to replicate Last week’s second half performance to find a way past the Rochester Rhinos’ dogged defense. The Rowdies […]

#TORvTBR Match Ratings

By JEFF HERNDEN Away match. In the cold. On turf. This was an opportunity for the Rowdies to exorcise some demons and build confidence away from home.  Following the nine changes to the starting XI that the Rowdies made for their US Open Cup victory over the Armada U-23, Stuart Campbell brought a full strength […]

Rowdies v Armada U23 Match Ratings – May 16, 2017

My Man of the Match, Alex Morrell, celebrates his goal With Joe Cole, Marcel Schäfer, Neil Collins, and Matt Pickens rested, wholesale changes were made to the squad as expected given our NPSL opponent and the busy fixture list coming fast and furious.  Despite nine changes to the starting XI, the Rowdies began with their familiar 4-2-3-1 formation and […]
