#Pondcast summer special: the donald trump of american soccer

wsotp-podcast-3-40.fw

Well, it took just a month for us to get the itch to get back together and record yet another #Pondcast. Which is good, because we literally had people asking about when the next one would drop. Never mind that there are two major international tournaments going on with the Euros and Copa Centenario, or that the USMNT aren’t doing too poorly in one of them either. There’s also the small matter of several domestic leagues to contend with, particularly ones that have teams in Ohio to reflect on. And though we advertised differently earlier on, we brought back our former intern and current Cincinnati Enquirer writer Charlie Hatch (@charliehatch_) to join in on the discussion.

Also, stay tuned for a few more summer specials… as there’s certainly no shortage of football to talk about this summer.

WSOTP pod: season 3 “finale”

wsotp-podcast-3-39.fw

With the ending of the Premier League season, that also means it’s the pseudo-end of the #Pondcast season too — we will be doing some special episodes throughout the course of the very busy summer of soccer to come. And in this “final” episode of Season 3 of the podcast, D.J. and Jeremy take a look back at their (very poor) preseason predictions, share their thoughts on each of the 20 sides in the 2015/16 season, as well as share listener submitted end of season eulogies — including the thoughts from special guest David from Sixth Day Soccer (@6thsoccer) to provide some Arsenal Ying to D.J.’s Tottenham Yang.

WSOTP pod: i’m not dead yet

wsotp-podcast-3-38.fw

After nearly a month away from the #Pondcast, co-host Jeremy Lance returns to the booth — electronically at least — with the declaration that he is not yet dead. And even better, his extended stay in the hospital afforded him ample time to take in all of the football that’s transpired over the last few weeks. So he’s well prepared to talk with D.J. again about topics such as Leicester’s trophy presentation the races for the top four and relegation zones, the Champions League semifinals and even a bit about the domestic game.

WSOTP pod: this is not the greatest sports story ever

wsotp-podcast-3-37.fw

A new #Pondcast on a Tuesday isn’t something we’ve been able to pull off recently, but we’re back on schedule again — this week at least. On this latest episode, Adam Maloney (@maloneyam34) rejoins us-as a guest host again to reflect on Leicester City’s now official Premier League title and Spurs’ spursing it away to them by surrendering a two goal lead at Chelsea. The guys also spend some time chatting up the remaining fights for the remaining top four and relegation spots. Too, there was time to delve into the Champions League semifinals before rounding things up with the normal weekly segments, including an abbreviated return of Question of the Week.

WSOTP pod: we asked about ugo

wsotp-podcast-3-35.fw

In the world of soccer, there’s hardly a weekend that goes by where something seismic doesn’t rattle the internet. This weekend was no different. There were enormous results at the polar opposite ends of the Premier League. In Major League Soccer, the results weren’t necessarily earth shattering — but LA Galaxy’s Nigel De Jong provided a leg shattering tackle. And down US the pyramid, FC Cincinnati logged huge news both on and off the pitch — and we welcome on FCC’s Sean Ugo Okoli to talk about the part he played in the historic night at Nippert Stadium. All of that is feasted upon by the guys in the latest #Pondcast, plus your usual weekly segments.

WSOTP pod: they’re gonna win the league

wsotp-podcast-3-34.fwThe thirty-fourth episode of the third season of the WSOTP Podcast clocks in at a little over 55 minutes, which will likely come as a relief for our listeners that sometimes tell us we’re a little long-winded. But what can you expect to find in this somewhat abbreviated episode? The guys discuss what looks to be the end of a Premier League title fight and Spurs readjusted priorities. Too, there was a rundown of the weekend’s MLS action. And how could we not mention last week’s USA-Guatemala World Cup Qualifier in Columbus, which both D.J. and Jeremy attended — though in very different capacities. The usual weekly segments make their appearances, too.

WSOTP pod: our very own alec baldwin

wsotp-podcast-3-34.fw

No Premier League? No problem! We might be in the throws of yet another international break, but there’s still plenty to chat about this week. For example, there’s Jurgen Klinsmann and the US Men’s National Team trying their best to cause a meltdown in American soccer circles. Too, there was the start of the USL season to contend with — and we welcomed back Chad Hollingsworth (@chadholl) of Scratching the Pitch to get us up to speed in the third division. And in addition to the other regular segments of Winners & WankersFantasy Update and League 2 Watch, we also bring back the Question of the Week segment to ask you listeners, “Who are the players you love from the teams you hate?”

But, just because we asked a question this time around, that doesn’t mean that you still can’t ask us questions to cover on the next episode.

WSOTP pod: colorado tim-bits

wsotp-podcast-3-31fw.fw

After a week’s hiatus — blame DJ’s baby for showing up a few days early — the #Pondcast makes its return with an episode full of fire to repay you for your patience. This week the boys tackle whether or not there’s actually a title race in the Premier League, as well as rundown the weekend’s big English derbies. Too the young MLS season receives further attention, with a weird take on the arrival of Tim Howard and Jermaine Jones in Colorado that included your input. Winners & Wankers, Fantasy Update and League 2 Watch are all in there too, with plenty of other hot takes stuffed alongside as well.

WSOTP pod: super soaker sunday

WSOTP Podcast - 3-31.fw

Not only did the 2016 MLS season kick off on over the weekend — on the so-called “Super Soaker Sunday” — but it kicked off with a 10-game bang. Not that there was room for domestic soccer’s return in the calendar, considering there were two full rounds of Premier League action, one of which included a highly influential North London Derby. There wasn’t even room to get into the Champions League fixtures that returned today, though League 2 Watch, Fantasy Update and Winners & Wankers segments were all in there still.

WSOTP pod: mls preview and a whole lot more

wsotp-podcast-3-30.fw

With weather now turning occasionally, slightly warmer, it’s about that time of year for the #Pondcast team to look ahead to the rapidly approaching Major League Soccer season. As such, Season 3 Episode 30 will serve as this year’s official ‘MLS Preview’ show. But we had to really squeeze it in there, since the rest of the world of soccer has really dialed it up a notch or two. There’s a weekend of slate of Premier League games to review, not to mention last week’s Champions League fixtures. Our Liverpool listeners would never forgive us if we didn’t talk about the League Cup final — well, except for maybe this time. Too there were FIFA presidential elections to contend with, and we asked you listeners for your thoughts on the new US Soccer Crest.
