DC’s Rock Bottom, Pre-season Picks Revisited, and Gold Cup Draw



Hey, soccer fans! Great to have you with us for another episode of The Sons of a Pitch: An American Soccer Podcast. Tonight, we show you what rock-bottom looks like in the form of DC United’s inability to even submit a correct lineup sheet – and that was before losing 4-0 to Atlanta United. Also in our league roundup, we look as the scrappy match between NYCFC and Inter Miami and try to explain some normalcy in the Western Conference.

In the Second Half, we revisit our preseason picks and predictions. Be sure to tune in as we take a very laughable walk down memory lane. (Jozy Altidore for Golden Boot, how drunk was Mike making that prediction!?!?) We close the show with USMNT conversation and a look ahead at Gold Cup 2021. The groups are almost set, and the US has maybe its toughest matchup in the group stage against a Canada team looking to announce itself in world soccer.

Be sure to subscribe on YouTube to join the next live broadcast and get in on the conversation.
