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: 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.

WSOTP pod: this looks like a title race

wsotp-podcast-3-28.fw

This weekend’s Premier League action saw the top four sides. Two of those teams are top four regulars, two of whom (mostly) are not. And despite two statement wins — one from each group — the two unusual suspects still sitting atop the table with just six points separating the foursome. You know what that’s called? A title race, kids. In addition to delving into the title credentials of each, D.J. and Jeremy also run down the rest of the Premier League results and previewed the Champions League round of sixteen. And the return of ‘Question of the Week’ sees your answers on whether Messi’s passed penalty to Suárez should be legal, all before we get into the weekly usual segments.

WSOTP pod: shhh… leicester are for real

 

WSOTP Podcast - 3-27

Not sure if you’ve noticed or not, but I’m pretty sure Leicester are actually pretty damn good. I know, I know: Jeremy and D.J. both picked them to get relegated this season in the first episode of Season 3. But so did lots of other people, so let’s ignore that. And fittingly, the guys get into the realness of the Foxes in-depth this week in addition to all of the other premier League action. Too, there was time for talk about the USMNT’s unconvincing showing against Canada at the weekend. Weekly segments, are back as well, all in under an hour.

Don’t be that listener who never participates in the show, and make sure you reach out to us with your questions and topic suggestions for the guys.

WSOTP pod: we’ll ask the questions around here

WSOTP - Blog - Season 3 Episode 25.fwPremier League weekend recap? We got that. Yeah, we’ve got some hot takes on Norwich City vs Liverpool, and Arsenal-Chelsea, too. You know we’ve got that transfer window gossip, plus some thoughts on the movers and shakers since last week. And for a change, we decided to ask you guys — our listeners — a question that we wanted you to answer: how much soccer is too much soccer to follow or support. The boys offer up their opinions on the matter, but we got some great responses as well. Those weekly segments haven’t gone away either.

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. And if you want to do that, or want to answer the question above even, give us a shout on social media or drop us a line to contact@wrongsideofthepond.com.

WSOTP pod: someone has to win this thing

WSOTP - Blog - Season 3 Episode 24.fw

A long weekend after a long week of footballing activity both domestic and abroad has left us with yet another episode chock full of content. In addition to two crammed rounds of Premier League football — including a complete lack of clubs trying to make the top spot their own — the January transfer window has finally started to come to life. On the domestic front, youngster Jordan Morris has dominated the transfer talk despite an entire MLS SuperDraft taking place last week, too. Worry not, both get airtime on this week’s #Pondcast.
