Podcast (August 3, 2017) – What’s up Internet? This week on Last Word SC Radio, Matt Pollard and Dan Sperry talk MLS All Star Game and a bunch of other stuff. Let’s get to it!

Last Word SC Radio: MLS All Star Game Review, VAR, And Transfer Window

We start be recaping the 2017 MLS All Star Game. The guys talk about the week as a whole and the festivities around it. We discuss the game and how it was kind of a hot mess with the All Stars losing the way they did. Then we talk about VAR (Video Assisted Replay) and why it’s a great move for the league. We then recap the U.S. Open Cup action from this week. Dan also implores ESPN to broadcast both semifinal matches.

The guys then discuss the new deal between MLS and Adidas and why it’s a good move for both parties. (We’re also super excited to see what the new kits will be coming out since Adidas is way better than Nike on that). We finish the episode off with ideas for every MLS team in the remaining transfer window and season and we do some weekend Pick ‘Ems.

Share this pod with your friend in Chicago to help them digest and cool down from the 2017 MLS All Star week that was.
