US Owls come out in force for QPR opener

As the dust settles on our opening weekend we can reflect on Antonio's miss when free on goal, or rue the 2 penalty decisions that went against us and Maghoma's strike against the post, but we outplayed a premiership team for a lot of this game and with our fully fit defence and a bit more luck we would've come away with a win.

So onwards and upwards for Dave Jones' men, there was a lot for Wednesdayites to get excited about, Nuhiu looked very impressive and I dont think Ive heard our NYC fans roar as loud as when that goal went in Saturday, unbelievable Jeff! Zayatte looked solid next to Gardner and once he has the cover of Buxton at RB, rather than a young midfielder filling in, that back line will be a lot stronger.

For the first time EVER we had meet-ups across the country and we got a couple of great pics from our Florida Owls group and New Orleans Owls. The groups both arranged meet-ups at local bars with just a couple of days to prepare as it wasnt confirmed for US TV until Wednesday last week.

The Florida Owls met at MacDinton's Irish Bar, in Tampa and got 10 people down for their very first meet up. A great showing co-ordinated by the Wilson-Wolfe family!


Ex New York Owl Jamie Midgley now lives in New Orleans and he rallied his troops too for the opening game, getting together a crowd of 12 at Finn McCools. Top work mate!


Finally we have our lovely bunch in NYC, fans that travel from New Jersey, Connecticut and all the NYC boroughs to meet up at 10am at The Football Factory. Thanks to all our worldwide fans who bought NYO t-shirts over the past few months as we were able to put some cash behind the bar from those sales and that kept us in high spirits throughout. We had 20 of us down this weekend and despite the result it was a blast.
