(September 8, 2016) – Put your pumpkin spice latte down fam, LANDON DONOVAN HAS RETURNED TO MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER!!!
Last Word SC Radio: LANDON DONOVAN IS BACK!!! (Plus lots of US Soccer Stuff)
This week on Last Word SC Radio, Matt Pollard and Joe Hojnacki break down the return of the #LegenD. Matt is all juiced up cause the LA Galaxy might have hope. Plus that transfer of Nigel de Jong kind of makes sense. Joe talks Matt back with some reason. Donovan hasn’t played in two years after all.
The guys review the midweek MLS games. They talk about how Orlando City SC could be making a run to the playoffs, cause Jason Kreis is a good coach. They lament on the Montreal Impact‘s slide and how they haven’t figured out how to use their pieces around Didier Drogba and Ignacio Piatti.
Matt and Joe talk about FC Dallas putting space between them and everyone else. We discuss their chances of winning a double and treble.
In the Round Table, we discuss Eric Wynalda‘s and Alejandro Bedoya‘s little twitter feud. We also discuss the NWSL getting some publicity with Megan Rapinoe getting into the National Anthem Protest discuss. We also talk about Sacha Kljestian and Christian Pulisic being great against teams Matt can’t find on a map.
This show is JAM PACKED with everything you need to know on the American Soccer landscape. Listen to it on your way home from the Manchester Derby this weekend or while you dig your Landon Donovan kit out of the closet.
You can listen to Last Word SC Radio LIVE every Thursday night at 9 PM EST at lastwordonsports.com/lwsc.
