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 […]

While things on the writing front haven’t completely picked back up yet — I’ve had a few original pieces pop out of my brain recently — things on the design front have really picked up a bit. In addition to the recently announced Saints Matchday Poster project eating up gobs of my time, there’s also been […]

Look at that picture. Just look at it for a second longer, too. That is a man unburdened. That is a player who has long felt pain, but is feeling the warmth of the sun for the first time in ages. That is the reaction of a man who’s scaled unbelievable heights, then suffered through unbelievable lows before eventually finding […]

Not that this is a groundbreaking thought or anything, but most individual awards in the world of sport are one hundred percent subjective. Soccer is particularly guilty of this when awarding prizes like league MVP’s, goalkeepr of the year awards, or the yearly handing out of the FIFA Balon d’Or. It’s not always the case, but often […]

While there’s a strong desire to call this latest episode of the podcast the “Cinco de Mayo Special”, Jeremy would probably prefer we call it the “Nose Picking Special” thanks to this hysterical fan shot from this weekend’s action. But there was way more than nose-picking to talk about this week. For instance, an all-Madrid Champions League […]

The docket for this week’s podcast, for the most part, doesn’t look too different from how it has for past episodes: Premier League round up, Champions League review and thoughts on MLS happenings. And with story lines like Giggs’ first match in charge of United, Liverpool “slipping up” in the title race, Chelsea’s negative tactics […]

It’s been months since Jeremy and D.J. haven’t had a full plate of football to chat about on a podcast. But with just Premier League and MLS action going down in the last week, this week’s line up seemed comparatively bare… before hand, anyway. In England, the discussion included Liverpool’s title hopes being boosted, the relegation race […]

No matter what your cup of tea is when it comes to world football, odds are there’s a segment in Episode 35 of the podcast that will tickle your fancy. You like the Premier League? We’ve got thoughts on Liverpool’s title surge and the growing scrap at the bottom of the table — plus Spurs […]

January: the month where a million writers, bloggers, newspapers and websites get more eyeballs on their works than any other. Thanks to its winter transfer window, and the plethora of the rumors of potential player moves that come with it, January is a writer’s best friend. Pick up the scent of a rumor without a […]
