Here is the November 2013 edition of the Roach Report, my monthly sit-down with Fordham Athletic Director David Roach. In this month's edition, we spoke about Fordham Football's undefeated hopes moving forward and how crazy the last two games were for the Rams- both two point wins.
I’ve been to a fair number of New York Red Bulls games over the past two year. I have always been impressed by the South Ward and its rabid supporters. More often than not, I’ve found the arena to be empty with the exception of one massive four-section area to the right of my seat in press row. I have lauded their performances time and time again both in game on twitter and in every day conversation.
And yes, I laughed at “You Suck, A------“ the first few times I heard it.

The Fordham Women’s soccer team has had a bumpy start to its year but as the old adage goes, once conference play starts it’s a new season. The Lady Rams have momentum going into their A-10 opener against Duquesne tonight, winning their last two games against Fairfield and Loyola respectively. I talked to Head Coach Ness Selmani about the nature of his team, choosing captains, and the team’s new style of play.

As part of the relatively unknown World Football Challenge, two well-known European soccer giants, Real Madrid and A.C. Milan came to play on American soil. Although the friendly match may hold little significance, tell that to the sellout crowd of 49,474 strong, who filled Yankee Stadium with the raucous choir so reminiscent of the world’s biggest soccer arenas.
Ryan Meara saw no action this week after picking up a knock on his hip. Coach Backe said that the Fordham graduate could go, but the team did not want to risk further injuring the rookie keeper. Even though he missed the action, there’s still no doubt that he’s been very important to this club.
