    Another loss. Mainly due to Sammy getting a red in the 60th minute.

    And the overall awesomeness of Real Monarchs, but I'm biased. We're undefeated this season.

    I am, for the most part. Just adding to the match report.
    being pretty much last allows for anything to be an improvement.

    Thank you to the dozen or so fans that traveled down from Tulsa. You were a class act and look forward to heading north..

    Is there a good board for Roughnecks player/coaching discussion?

    The Menace went behind in the first minute of the second half, but Heath Preston and Leigh Veidman scored to send it into the second round at home against the Tulsa Roughnecks.

    A mile from Yankee Stadium
    Country:
    United States
    In the dressing room of a baseball stadium in the American South, I fiddled with orange shinpad tape, yanked my heels to my buttocks to stretch already-limber quadricep muscles, and tap-danced impatiently on plastic studded football boots. Ten more debutants in creaseless kits waited in line. A dipping Oklahoma sun peeked inside the tunnel, beckoning. When the referees eventually signalled that it was time, we marched out. First on red clay, then green grass, then across the straight white lines of a freshly painted football pitch. In the stands, 8,000 soccer rookies rose to their feet, waved homemade flags, and glugged half-price cans of Modelo beer. Up in the posh seats, the club’s hierarchy were given a first tangible taste of a team that had been two years in the making.

    It was a momentous walk for all of us: the first action on the first night in Tulsa Roughnecks history. For me, it proved the last, improbable leg of a 14-year journey that had transported me 4,000 miles from my English home. At 22 years old, after a sequence of rejection and lateral footballing progress, my professional debut had finally arrived.

    Men in military uniforms trumpeted out a national anthem. For a moment, a reverential hush cloaked the excitement for soccer pulsing through this old oil city. Stood by the halfway line – where short stops might field on baseball-playing days – I considered how we all arrived here. How had this brand new team leapt into existence? What did this crowd expect? Was our flung-together squad any good? What’s that centre-back’s name again? And, of all the football clubs in all the world, how the hell had I ended up in Tulsa, Oklahoma?

    It's a baseball team operating a soccer team at a baseball field. 37% of the team is owned by the arch rival in OKC. Pretty much everything wrong with American soccer is at Oneok. 2-9-1 this season and its systematic. Anything else that you want to know?

    Yes, how we are supposed to get this information from the word "done"?

    Geez, what's wrong with you? Maybe he didn't want to vent over it at the time he posted.
    A fan is frustrated and you have to be a dick about it.

    Way more layered than that. Pretty much all of my favorite teams lose more than win. This is a money grab by people that don't care about soccer. Bad for the sport.

    Not sure, but I just gave you reasons and you're still talking about it.

    Been there all year. Fun ride. Great club. Didn't get involved in the supports section until the latter part but was much more fun than the Roughnecks plus ten blocks down the road.

    There would be if the mods would allow a subforum with multiple threads instead of this one with a sticky.

    They'd allow it if there was enough people interested.

    The posts on this page are 4 months worth of chatter about the team. The forum would be bare.
