Since we last recorded, league champions have been crowned in the upper two levels of the English pyramid, and we took time in this week’s episode of the #Pondcast to discuss the incredible seasons by both favorites’ Chelsea and the underdogs’ AFC Bournemouth. But while the tops of the tables were interesting, the bottoms of them are even […]

Yeah, the EPL races are getting tighter and tighter — well, maybe not at the top of the bale — and we’ll be sure to get into those. There was also Champions League action near and afar, and that’s on the agenda for this #Pondcast, too. There’s plenty of Major League Soccer action for us to […]

EDIT: I wrote this article in the lead up to the first leg of the 2014/2015 CONCACAF Champions League final, before Montreal marched into the sold out Azteca and amazingly scrapped a 1-1 draw against Club América.

In fact, I’d be a little surprised if you weren’t subliminally thinking about MLS right now, as the league’s marketing has been awfully hard to ignore this winter/spring. […]

Today is the opening day of the Premiership… for Tottenham Hotspur at least. After a riot-induced (How often do we see that as a reason for a postponement these days?) nine day delay to the start of the season meant that I was a little less emotionally invested in the other matches than I normally […]

Welcome back, distinguished readers, and thanks for reading my latest article on wrong side of the pond. I am attempting to keep today’s posting very formal, proper, and short as this blog needs to get into in-season form for the start of this European campaign.
