The sting of this one is going to last for a while. The Tampa Bay Rowdies dropped a 3-2 game to the New York Cosmos, with David Diosa scoring the winning goal in stoppage time. “I’m devastated,” said coach Stuart Campbell. “I’m devastated for the players, coaches, and everyone associated with the Rowdies organization.

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Tampa Bay Rowdies head coach Stuart Campbell will admit that his team has far too many draws this season, and far too many of them have come in home games. On a night like Saturday night, however, it’s not so bad. The Rowdies came from behind to earn a 2-2 draw with the New York Cosmos Saturday night in a game they trailed 2-0 after 84 minutes. It was a nice salvaging of a point. Keith Savage forced an own…

Were the Tampa Bay Rowdies offside? After a 2-1 loss to the New York Cosmos, that’s sure to be the subject of great debate for the Rowdies over the next few days.

Rowdies give new coach Stuart Campbell win over Cosmos

in Sports/Top Headlines by

There has been a lot for the Tampa Bay Rowdies to forget lately. A long losing streak. The firing of a coach and general manager. Last place. Finally, the Rowdies found something to remember Saturday night. The Rowdies upset a strong New York Cosmos team, 2-0, on Saturday night, giving new coach Stuart Campbell his first victory in America. Campbell, an Englishman, won as interim manager of Bristol in his native country before joining the Rowdies four years ago. Tampa…

Rowdies hope Stuart Campbell leads to a turnaround

in Sports/Top Headlines by

There is a quiet confidence to Stuart Campbell, a certainty that this job, and this situation, is not too much for him. Good thing. The Tampa Bay Rowdies could use a bit of stability right about now. Campell, 37, sits in a dugout overlooking the field at Al Lang Field. It is his field now, and his team, and his season to save. He inherited a team in a nosedive, a team that seemingly had the joy of the game…
