All of the other MNUFC news! Rey is an All-Star get your game on, let’s play! We have a new CEO and it isn’t an old white guy (just an old white lady), plus departing Loons, some good, some bad. We also have some Gopher soccer, take that Privratsky!
We are back, this time with much less trivia noise, sorry ’bout that! We breakdown both 2-2 draws, one felt very much like a win, the other very much like a loss!
We also briefly discuss what is up with Wanchope, which MN celebrity we most want to buy into MNUFC, and whether or not Allianz will host a World Cup qualifier (Spoiler Alert, they won’t)!
After the break, we briefly chat about the upcoming Houston match and talk a little world soccer including a great USMNT performance and a disappointing USNWT performance!
It’s finally here, an actual match week! But before we get to that we welcome Dark Clouds Silent Auction winner KJ. The guys start with some MNUFC news [6:15] before diving into our Loons Preview [14:15]. Instead of the traditional preview, we play a game of Over Unders and answer a couple of big questions. We end the first half of the podcast with some MLS news [1:04:45], including (the good) the hiring of Lucy Rushton in DC and (the bad) Sebastian Lletget.
After the break we get to Better Know a KJ [1:21:08], break down the match against Seattle on Friday [1:42:07] and discuss the return of NWSL [1:54:41].
It’s a long one we know, but hey, a lot of shit happened in the last week!
Lots o’ Loon’s news staring with the whole ticket debacle [8:25]. The guys also chat about MNUFC transactions including #FreeChacon and some draft signings. There is also a Sports Science signing and Heath spouting some bullshit! Ike News and we chat a little preseason stuff.
After the break, it’s MLS news [1:02:10] including some actual signings and some fantastical signings. We discuss the new Concussions sub rule [1:08:45] (spoiler alert, it’s good) and CCL Fever [1:17:00]
Finally, we discuss world soccer stuff, mostly UWCL, we avoided a TDIK Derby [1:21:20], and then a Dave absolutely dominates in our now semi-regular feature Guess A Loon [1:34:05].
We kick things off with A SCHEDULE! [5:20]. We give some very cursory thoughts on the Loons schedule before diving into some actual Loons news. We have a small Wanchope update (he’s currently, as of this writing in the air to the US) and an actual match to talk about (beating the shit out of the Battery). We end the Loons segment with a quick update on our Loons abroad.
MLS announced the new Leagues Cup [33:02] and USSF announced the shitty version of the US Open Cup!
After the break, we discuss a bit of good USMNT news and a lot of shitty USMNT news [39:53]. All in all a good bit of group therapy.
MJ debuts a new game [1:10:30] and we wrap up with both Forward Madison/MPLS City news, as well as a few bits of world Women’s soccer [1:14:30].
