Last Word SC Radio: Gold Cup and USWNT Knockout Superpod
Then Dan has a USMNT rant brewing. We try to take a 30,000 foot view of the friendlies and talk expectations and fan outrage culture going into the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
In the Round Table, we have a few MLS items to discuss. We finish off with U.S. Soccer Pick ‘Ems.
Matt Pollard is the Managing Editor of Last Word on Soccer and an engineer. When he’s not watching soccer or at work, the Colorado transplant enjoys skiing and hiking all over the state. The LA Kings will always be his first sports love, 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.
Daniel Sperry is an Editor at Last Word on Soccer. He covers mainly Sporting KC and U.S. Soccer for LWOS and discusses San Francisco Giants baseball elsewhere. He was born and raised in Northern California, hence his love for Bay Area teams. He currently resides in the KC Suburbs with his incredible wife and energetic puppy. Outside of sports and writing, he loves a good stout and nature, whether that is hiking, camping, canoeing, birding, or some activity with all four.
