With the 2014 MLS season now in the rearview mirror, we could forgive you if you thought this week’s Pondcast would be on the light side. It’s not. An interesting weekend of Premier League fixtures kept D.J. and Jeremy extra busy, as did the conclusion of the Champions League group stages and an already hectic MLS […]

We go around the world in 68 minutes on the latest edition of the podcast, as there was football aplenty to chat about. The Premier League was there to keep us busy as usual — in particular a surprise West Ham side and an unpredictably entertaining Chelsea-Manchester United match. El Clásico also got a run out, as […]

Well, this first season of the Wrong Side of the Pond podcast has been one crazy ride. So on this week’s episode, we look back at our very first predictions at the beginning of the season, and take a team-by-team look at how every club in the Premier League fared this year. We also found time to […]

Two months. Eight weeks. Sixty days. It’s not a whole lot of time no matter how you look at it. But it seems to be the magic time span these days, at least for MLS players it seems. Whether urged on by Klinsmann’s pleas for American players to get more time in competitive playing environments, […]

Waking up yesterday morning to see Bale posing with the trophy, looking all spiffy in his tux, was certainly a pleasant surprise. I honestly hadn’t expected him to […]

Landing a management position in big-time, professional football has to be such a bipolar experience. On one hand, I would have to imagine you would probably be ecstatic to have landed a high profile job. The prestige, the perks, the chance to compete with and against the best of the best, knowing that you’ve reached the pinnacle […]
