The Black & Gold are looking for all help during a disappointing season and owner Anthony Precourt alluded to more reinforcements possibly coming before the summer transfer window closes Aug. 4. Per this tweet by a Costa Rican television journalist, Crew SC are interested in McDonald's services and Wednesday will be a big day in terms of the transfer. Subsequent tweets indicate McDonald is willing to go to Major League Soccer and Columbus would be his destination.

But maybe Higuain will remember to turn on the Barry White before cozying up to Rosenberry next time.
Gaston Sauro posted a picture on Instagram with his right hand wrapped in a bandage. The caption says that he broke his index finger.

It may have been all for naught, but Federico Higuain scored what will likely be one of the contenders for Goal of the Year against the Timbers. Absolutely amazing control and precision.
The team is ready to unveil their new alternate jersey at a special event in Columbus City Hall. Anticipation for details have been building since Massive Report discovered that the team will be moving to a primarily white shirt in 2016 to replace the yellow.

The first rumors of the offseason have the revolving door at right back continuing to spin with Harrison Afful rumored to be heading to Mersin İdman Yurdu of the Turkish first division Super Lig.

Inspired by all the Star Wars craziness.
