WSOTP Podcast - Season 2 Episode 11

We go around the world in 68 minutes on the latest edition of the podcast, as there was football aplenty to chat about. The Premier League was there to keep us busy as usual — in particular a surprise West Ham side and an unpredictably entertaining Chelsea-Manchester United match. El Clásico also got a run out, as did the Champions League fixtures from last week. Of course we had to make room to talk about the MLS Playoffs and end of season fixtures, too. And we even still had time to fit in our normal ‘Winners & Wankers’, ‘Fulham Watch’ and listener question segments. So buckle up and hang on… there’s a lot to football to digest in this week’s pod.

new shirt alert: the pictured line

WSOTP - Shirts - New Pictured Line

Even though we recently debuted our very first scarf just last week, we’re back to stock the shelves of the WSOTP Shop with ever more new merch! And we’re doing so by getting back to our bred and butter offering: new shirts!

And it’s with great joy that I’m able to introduce the latest line of shirts that we’re adding to the shop: the “Pictured Line”!

The “Pictured Line” features a series of four shirts — for now — that seek to represent some of the biggest sides in the English football with combinations of iconic club imagery unique to each club. The blue moon of Manchester City. The artillery in Arsenal’s red. The royal blue English lion of Chelsea. And the cock of Tottenham Hotspur in Lillywhite. And below each club’s initials is a further token image that features prominently in the club’s history.

We’re still working out the final details of the latest shirts to get them into inventory, so be sure to stay tuned for news about when you can grab your own. And in the mean time, make sure to pre-order our first ever WSOTP Scarf!

WSOTP Podcast - Season 2 Episode 10

I’ll tell you what: there was no short supply of footie talk about in the latest rendition of the WSOTP Podcast. The return of the Premier League had everyone elated, and the guys provided a rundown of all of the highs and lows from the weekend action. Stateside, the rapidly solidifying MLS playoff picture provided ample talking points, as did the recent club versus country debate being waged between Don Garber and Jurgen Klinsmann. Chris is back with his Bundesliga update. The normal weekly segments — Fantasy UpdateWinners & Wankers and Fulham Watch — are all in there, too. And in just in case you missed it when it was tweeted out, Jeremy was kind enough to create a Spotify Playlist with every song we’ve ever used to close out the podcast — in order of appearance even.

Also, remember that we would love for you to send us topics and questions to talk about in next week’s podcast. Get into the mix by shooting us an email to contact[at]wrongsideofthepond[dot]com, tweeting us or writing it on our Facebook wall using the links at the bottom of the page.

WSOTP pod: season 2 episode 6

WSOTP Podcast - Season 2 Episode 6Premier League weekend recap: check. Champions League rundown: check. #MLSNEXT and MLS playoff hunt thoughts: double check. This week’s WSOTP Podcast has football discussion in ample supply. Listen in as D.J. and Jeremy pontificate on Özil’s resurrection, Manchester United’s capitulation, and Leicester City’s adulation. The guys also share their thoughts on the new MLS Logo — which D.J. wrote extensively about — and how things are shaping up in the MLS Cup Playoffs race. There was still time to discuss the first round of Champions League group action at the end, too. And believe it or not, all that and more can be found in a package significantly shorter than last week’s epic pod.

i want: world f.c. shirts

World F.C. Champions Collection

If you’ve been around these parts any amount of time, you probably already know of my obsession with soccer tees. My shirt preference is usually to buy from the small-shop designers too, instead of the ones coming from the big boys. That helps to explain why I have a closet teeming with shirts from the likes of Bumpy Pitch, 3nil, Copa, Who Are Ya Designs and of course my own original WSOTP Shop tees. So I feel downright shameful that I haven’t yet picked up a shirt from fellow Ohio-based outfit World F.C. And with their new “Champions Collection” dropping soon, this seems like the perfect time to add to my own collection.

World F.C.’s new collection adds seven new shirts “featuring iconic design elements from the champions of yesterday and today”. I particularly fancy the Boca Juniors and PSG designs from this set, but any of the shirts in the line-up are worth a punt. I’ve been eyeing this Spurs shirt from their other shirts for a while now, too.

Anyway, pre-orders on the new Champions Collection are going on now and will begin shipping soon, so make sure to get your order in soon.

WSOTP Podcast - Season 2 Episode 5

After taking off last week for the most pointless international break ever and with another full weekend of European club football now under our belts, there was a lot to talk about on Episode 5 of the podcast. So prepare yourself — this will be a long one.

Though we weren’t fans of the break, we did cover the USMNT’s first match of the new World Cup cycle as well as discussed some of the more interesting news that filtered out during the rest of the international break. The Premier League’s return this past weekend also required plenty of discussion, with hardly a dud among the nine matches that took place before we recorded. We also made room for our newest segment, a once-a-fortnight Bundesliga-centric update from our German football correspondent Chris Wieland (@TheSpareWheel). And let’s not forget our regular Winners and Wankers and Jeremy’s Fulham Watch segments, as those were in there too.

As always, if you have any questions or topics you want us to cover on future podcasts, drop us a line at contact[at]wrongsideofthepond[dot]com or tweet us using the links at the bottom of the page.

Frank Lampard of Manchester City

just one of the cornucopia of stories that came out just this past weekend: frank lampard’s manchester city debut.

As Americans, we’ve reached a weird point in the soccer calendar. Just as we’re getting warmed up to and getting a feel for the European season, we’re getting to “squeaky bum time” in the MLS season with the playoffs just around the corner. And because of that, it sure seems like there’s more news pouring out of the sport than ever. But worry not, WSOTP has been scouring the web to bring you the picks of the litter. So dive into my favorite links from around the world of football from the last week or so, and stay tuned for even more content as the week progresses.

WSOTP pod: season 2 episode 4

WSOTP Podcast - Season 2 Episode 4As we ease into the most needless international break of all time — seriously, we’re just three weeks into the European season and a month and a half out from the World Cup — there’s still a mountain of news to talk about from the world of football. And on Episode 4 of this season’s podcast, the guys try to scale it. You’ll find D.J. and Jeremy providing the normal rundown on all the weekend’s EPL action, take a gander at the trashfire that is Toronto FC, and preview the US men’s friendly against the Czech Republic. And they would be remiss to not talk about the closing of the Transfer Window. As such, the guys will assess the major movements around Europe and the Premier League, picking the winners and losers of this latest “silly season”. We’ll also have our weekly Winners and Wankers to pick too.

So grab your favorite headphones and dial yourself in for the latest edition of the Wrong Side of the Pond Podcast.

WSOTP Pond - Season 2 Episode 3

Transfers were on our minds as we recorded the third episode of the season of the WSOTP Podcast. Big names on the move, both domestically and abroad, dominated our conversation this week. And Jeremy and D.J. not only pontificate on the merits of quite a few those big ones, but also on who should and shouldn’t be making some last minute moves before the European window slams shut next week. That being in addition to the usual thoughts on the weekend action in England and America. Too, they once again nominated their Winners and Wankers from the past week and answered some questions from some of our faithful listeners. So grab a drink and saddle up for another edition of your favorite podcast.

WSOTP Pod - Season 2 Episode 2

louis van gaal’s first match in charge of manchester united may have had him wondering, “what did i get myself into?”

The first weekend of the Premier League now in the books, Episode 2 of the season sees the guys offer their thoughts on the results and some of the surprises that worked their way in. We also take some time to pick our favorite and least favorite kits for the season — though we didn’t have time to read the entirety of listener Mel B’s epic rundown of her thoughts on the top 6 sides’ kits. Also on tap: the bounty of goals provided by the weekend MLS action, a few listeners questions answered sprinkled within, this week’s Winners and Wankers and Jeremy and D.J. fessing up to their Fantasy failures.
