Gaven, Schelotto, Hejduk: Three Crew SC-related social media topics of interest for today.
The 19 year old Grove City, Ohio native has had an injury that was season ending twice in two seasons.
As last year he was out after a July 29th shoulder injury.
I'm sure this is not the way Swanson imagined his first Crew years going. But, guy is 19.NEWS: #CrewSC places Ben Swanson on Season-Ending Injury List after successful surgery. Get well soon, Ben!— Columbus Crew SC (@ColumbusCrewSC) April 20, 2017

Most American soccer pros don't begin a career until they're 22 and graduated college.
Swanson started at 17.
Just got to keep going, keep the head up. Looked good for Riverhounds.
Not a bad decision looms
Berhalter not too flummoxed with good decision a or b.#CrewSC | Decisions loom once Jonathan Mensah returns (potentially soon) plus other notes: https://t.co/OO3CqVtRgk— Andrew Erickson (@AEricksonCD) April 21, 2017
“Again, we see (center back depth) as a positive. When I look at Josh Williams, how he’s performed, Lalas (Abubakar), I think he’s doing a good job in training, then Alex and Nico, together with Jonathan, we’re comfortable at the center back position. We need numbers at that position, especially when we’re going to play with three in the back.”
Especially when we play three in the back..
Once this year. 😉
Would be more desperate and troubling if we were currently terrible without Mensah. As we were without Sauro the previous year.
I don't see as a problem.
Get behind your first pro team
Hey #CBJ fans, there's still a #1 ranked team in Columbus who plays sports. They're called #CrewSC and would love to have your support!— ColumbusCrewGraphics (@CrewGraphics) April 21, 2017
Hey #CBJ fans. .@ColumbusCrewSC wouldn't mind seeing you filling up the seats @MAPFREStadium. It's like hockey but with a ball! #CrewSC— Ralph Schudel (@schudel_ralph) April 21, 2017
Sad in my opinion if one can't.
Like $20 bucks.
Also, who knows if 2000 happens and if one could lose drastically to the Penguins without the other in 96.
Just saying one of the most unique and best fan experiences in America in my opinion. 👍
In your backyard.
I would rob a bank for that compared to it being 3 hours away.
I mean that's nice of Crew SC. But, personally have a great Portuguese teacher."We have to become comfortable dealing with their pressure." #CrewSC midfielder Artur talks about #NYvCLB coming up on Saturday. pic.twitter.com/G8LpcdwmYn— Columbus Crew SC (@ColumbusCrewSC) April 20, 2017
And on the New York end..
“Columbus has had a good start to the year, they’ve altered a few things tactically. They’ve had some home games and they’ve done well in those games and kept their leads. They look solid this year, so it will be a big challenge for us - and stylistically it will be a game that is in opposing styles in many ways, so that always creates a good challenge for us.”
-Red Bulls Manager Jesse Marsch.
