WSOTP pod: episode 22

WSOTP Pod - Season 1 Episode 22
the biggest signing of the MLS offseason? not exactly, but michael parkhurst’s move back to the states is big for the crew.

Most January transfer windows our eyes are glued to Europe, waiting for one of Europe’s uber-elite to overpay for the luxury of stripping away another side’s best player in the middle of the season. But it would be a cold day in hell when an MLS side is the one making the biggest waves in the transfer market. But thanks to Toronto FC’s $100 million dollar gamble to bring in England striker Jermain Defoe and US national team midfielder Michael Bradley, someone definitely needs to go check the underworld’s thermostat. So Jeremy and D.J. spend a sizable chunk of Episode 22 talking about those arrivals, and the long-term implications of the growing trend of USMNT players returning to home to play in a so-called “lesser” league. We did find time to talk about European transfers and the normal EPL round-up too. So worry not Eurosnobs, this isn’t a completely MLS-centric podcast.
