Throwback-Flashback: SF City Volume 2

This edition showcases San Francisco City FC.  However, taking this in a bit different course and concentrating on the Norcal Premiership years of 2015 before they became a PDL (now League Two) club the following year.

The selection was too big that we had to split this into two parts. This time we are focusing on the best of the fall schedule that led to the 2016 NorCal Premier title–which was the last hurrah before moving up to what was called the PDL.

Throwback-Flashback: AC Milan

This edition showcasing the 2016 game with AC Milan when they played against Liverpool in the International Champions Cup.  The original plan was to post this in late July but due to all the circumstances leading to the August match we decided to delay writing this blurb.  Instead, it is just the one game from two years ago from the stint with FootySF.  Enjoy!

Throwback-Flashback: Chelsea FC

Taking things back to 2007 when Chelsea FC came to the Bay Area.  Not the best view, and not the best camera at that time but the original plan was to see them in Los Angeles but when this game was announced the game at Stanford Stadium against Club America was the better sell.  Some of the top names were part of the tour including John Terry, Didier Drogba, Peter Cech, and Frank Lampard.  Since the Quakes were not playing that year a soccer fix was very hard to come by except for the lower division teams at that time so something to check out.  On a personal note, this friendly won out over the baseball All-Star Game.

If there’s a team that would be worth the revisit Chelsea would be it.

Throwback-Flashback: USA Women

Originally this was on the docket for the Throwback-Flashback series but because we could only be in the stands for the recent match we considered putting this article on the backburner until next year. However, because of Instagram interest we decided to post the XI from the vault.  From Candlestick Park 30 some odd rows up in 2013 and Avaya Stadium on the field in 2016.

Of note: 2016  Quakesfan/FootySF and 2013 with the American Outlaws in the stands.

Clint Dempsey

On Wednesday Clint Dempsey announced his retirement from soccer effective immediately.  He caps off an illustrious career that started with the New England Revolution, then to Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur of the English Premier League, and back to MLS with the Seattle Sounders.   He also has been a decorated player for the US National Team appearing in 3 World Cups, a Confederations Cup in 2009, the 2016 Copa America, and 5 Gold Cup tournaments.

As a tribute here are some photos from the vault – either from FootySF, QuakesFan, or in the stands courtesy of Nap.

 

Yes, he did play for Seattle in his later years and has been that thorn on the side of Quakes fans, but as one of the greats for the US National Team he has taken that club to greater heights.  His achievements ought to be applauded so, thank you Clint and the best of luck in the next career path.

Throwback-Flashback: Manchester City FC

The latest in this series is a true Flashback Friday post.

This edition showcases Manchester City’s game against Club America at AT&T Park in July 2011.  Only 11,250 attended the match that day but this was a foreshadowing of that upcoming Premiership season when they won the title. Since then City as been a contender in the English Premiership winning in 2012, 2014, and most recently in 2018.

The next one will be up at a future date.  Posting the retrospectives as a showcase and portfolio as to what I’ve done in the past, be in the stands in this case or on the pitch.  Now to cue Wonderwall.
