Podcast (May 16, 2017) – What’s up Internet? This week on Last Word SC Radio, we’ve got a jam packed early week show to get you ready for mid-week MLS games!

Last Word SC Radio: MLS Recap, Sacramento MLS Expansion, And Goodbye To A Host

First, Matt Pollard and Joe Hojnacki jump into the weekend results. We talk about the four ridiculous National TV games including the incredible win the Chicago Fire got in front of a sell out crowd. We talk about the LA Galaxy winning in the Easter Time Zone for the first time since man invented the wheel. We finish off waxing poetic about how good FC Dallas and NYCFC was.

In segment two, we review the news from Sacramento. We talk about how this ownership move affects the Sacramento MLS Expansion bid and Sacramento Rebulic FC in the long run. We talk about a few other expansion updates and predic which cities we think will join MLS. Then we transition to a Quarter Season review, with some MLS awards.

In the Round Table, Joe and Matt talk about how all the bad teams in MLS managed to win this weekend. We go through a full slate of Weekend Pick ‘Ems (midweek games included). We finish off by saying goodbye to our co-host, Joe Hojnacki, who will be moving on from Last Word on Soccer this week.

Matt Pollard is a Site Manager and Featured Columnist at Last Word on Soccer and Environmental Engineer.

His first sports love was the LA Kings, though MLS didn’t exist at the time. Once called the Shakespeare of LWOS, he covers the LA Galaxy, Colorado Rapids, and Saint Louis FC. Like the Galaxy, he too was handcrafted in LA.
