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.

Fifth tier minnows like Lincoln City and Sutton United attracted scores of attention to the world’s oldest knockout cup competition, including our own. […]

Even though this week’s #Pondcast is our Valentine’s Day gift to you, we don’t suggest trying to pass it off as a gift for your loved one: our wives didn’t find it a suitable gift, so your significant other probably won’t either. Probably anyway. But if they would find it a respectable gift, once unwrapped they’d find […]

Though in year’s past we’ve been known to skip over FA Cup weekends and give ourselves a little #Pondcast break, that’s not the case in 2017. That’s especially true when two teams that guys support square up against one another in the tournament, as was the case when D.J.’s Spurs hosted Jeremy’s minnows in Wycombe Wanderers. […]

  While our 100th episode was one we celebrated with much fanfare — a special guest and things like advance planning — the 150th episode didn’t quite get the same treatment. In fact, it snuck up on us so much it wasn’t until after we finished recording this week’s episode. Luckily, there were fireworks in the Premier League […]
