When I started Wrong Side of the Pond close to seven years ago, I didn’t really have a plan in mind. I had just moved to Louisville for a non-soccer related job, and I was looking for a way to pass the time in a new city where I didn’t know anybody. Keeping a blog to spill the many, many thoughts […]

We’ve got a title race on our hands, or at least that’s what Chelsea fan Jeremy spent a portion of this latest #Pondcast trying to convince Spurs fan D.J. The guys not only debated the merits of both those side’s chances, but also took some time to dissect the top four race unfolding below them before dancing through the Champions […]

Normally, previews come out before the item they’re previewing has debuted to the world. But here at WSOTP, we do things different — and it has nothing to do with the fact that we weren’t able to get this done any earlier. That said, after a week of opening round fixtures, we’re now ready to drop our 2017 […]

As we’ve harped on before, coming up with content on international weeks is hard. Okay, on week’s like this one, it isn’t that hard. What with the US Men’s National Team demolishing Honduras after having their German shackles removed and Christian Pulisic being ordained the official second coming. But with minimal MLS to report on, and no Premier […]

It’s officially spring here in Ohio. That means the weather is currently wildly fluctuating between spells of winter and early summer, most of the country has turned its attention to basketball madness, and those of us in the world of soccer are left to be drowned by a tsunami of soccer. The English Premiership has reached the point […]

It’s that time of the year where there’s absolutely no shortage of soccer to digest, and this week’s #Pondcast is a reflection of that. No less than five competitions got some serious time in this week’s show, with the FA Cup, Premier League, UEFA Champions League, MLS and LigaMX all getting considerable time on air. The last of those warranted […]

  The regular season domestic calendar opened up this past weekend here in the United States. And while the new MLS season always inspires excitement, this year, it seemed like a bigger deal than normal. That might have had something to do with two expansion teams kicking their first ball in the American/Canadian top flight, […]

With a Sunday night recording nixing our ability to talk about a Ranieri-less Leicester resurrect themselves in glorious fashion against a deflated Liverpool side, we’re presuming that’s how the Academy botched our chances of ending the evening with silverware just like La La Land. Presuming a podcast could even be nominated for a film award. Instead, we talked […]

Though we were all made to suffer through a weekend without the likes of Premier League football to entertain us, the FA Cup and its magic did a fine job standing in. Fifth tier minnows like Lincoln City and Sutton United attracted scores of attention to the world’s oldest knockout cup competition, including our own. […]
