The wait is over: MLS is here! The domestic first division season officially kicks off this weekend and, once again, D.J. and Jeremy are back to preview the upcoming 2021 campaign. As usual, the guys present their normal predictions — playoff teams, Supporters Shield winners, Cup winners, MVP, coach of the year, darkhorse club, and […]

Worry not, exhausted #Pondcast-ers: this week’s show is less than half the length of last week’s monstrous return to the mics. In this week’s abridged version, the guys examined the reasons behind West Ham’s dizzying heights in the English table — are Moyes’ men actually good, or is just that everyone else bad? We also […]

After a few weeks away from the mics, D.J. and Jeremy are back — and they brought someone with them! This week’s 100-minute behemoth includes an interview with Schalke under-23 assistant Kai Hesse, who joined us to talk about his career, the academy set up at Knappenschmiede, and the development of American starlet Matthew Hoppe […]

Sure, the title race is more or less settled in England. But Manchester United cared not for City’s near-certain trophy and dropped their crosstown rivals for the third straight away match — and the guys discussed how it was a match that seemed like a perfect microcosm for the entirety of this odd Premier League […]

In another VAR stained weekend in England, one thing was certain — Manchester City were the best team in the country. And on this week’s episode of the #Pondcast, the guys dissected where the other teams behind City stack up. And as MLS preseason picks up steam, everyone’s attention was turned off the field as […]

Uncharacteristically warm weather has thawed out Cincinnati after a week of uncharacteristically high amounts of snow froze the guys out of last week’s show. But now warmed by the sun, we’re back and ready to chat soccer! On the running order this week, we take a look at Liverpool’s developing trainwreck and the chances the […]

More slothfulness on the front and back ends of recording this mean you get last week’s news today. Hooray! Luckily, we didn’t cover the events too much and focused instead on how the season is going for England’s traditional “top six” sides — Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester City and United, and Tottenham. Then we wrapped […]

With a planned delay in the cards so that D.J. — not Jeremy — could wallow in the outcome of Spurs-Chelsea and the guys could talk about the looming MLS collective bargaining agreement deadline, the guys were gifted even more to talk about than they could have imagined. Late-breaking news out of Cincinnati indicated the […]

On this week’s episode, the guys recant the experiences viewing the rarest of WSOTP Derbies… Spurs-Wycombe. Even if it played out fairly similarly to the last two times these clubs met. In news that doesn’t just concern two of our favorite teams, Thomas Tuchel is in at Chelsea. Which, of course, is Jeremy’s other favorite […]
