Meant to be Together

It was 442 days since ECS was in the Brougham End. The return home exceeded expectations - being with friends, raising our voices, our flags, our drums, singing and jumping until everything was sore, all in support of the boys. This is the way it was meant to be. Our coach, himself, believes that The Club is the relationship between players and fans. That relationship is best displayed through the passion and organized chaos of the Brougham End. Supporters give life to the game. There is a symbiotic and reciprocal energy between the players on the field and their supporters in the terraces, each giving the other the energy to achieve greater heights. We went from the riotous energy of hosting and winning MLS Cup to a year of watching our boys saluting an empty terrace. The contrast made it clearer than ever, we are Meant to be Together.

Sweet Stefan Frei

Although it was a bittersweet given Frei’s recent injury, 1000 saves is an amazing milestone.  Get well soon, Stefan, so that you can continue working on the next 1000 saves!
