PODCAST – What’s up Internet? This week on Last Word SC Radio, Matt Pollard and Daniel Sperry are here for a full 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S Open Cup Final preview. We discuss Minnesota United FC and Atlanta United FC and how we see the match shaking out. We also talk narrative given these two teams joined MLS in 2017.
Last Word SC: U.S. Open Cup Final Preview
Then we turn to last week’s MLS Rivalry Week and pick winners and losers for the midweek, Saturday, and Sunday. In the Round Table, we’ve got Pick ‘Ems for Open Cup and the MLS Labor Day Weekend slate.
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.
