MLS is Back! USMNT is Back!



Hey, soccer fans! The Sons of a Pitch: An American Soccer Podcast is back…and so is the MLS (almost). We were excited to hear the announcement and are hopeful for a new CBA and a smooth start to the MLS’ 26th season. In this episode, we also talk about:

  • MLS Opening Day and Potential Issues
  • Collective Bargaining and Negotiations between MLSPA and MLS owners
  • SuperDraft Recap
  • Moves and Transfers
    • Nelson Rodriguez steps down for Fire
    • Jordan Morris to Swansea
    • Caden Clark to RB Leipzig
    • Lisandro Lopez to ATLUTD

And if the MLS announcement wasn’t excitement enough, the USMNT have announced a friendly to end their January camp. On the 31st, the Yanks will take on Trinidad & Tobago. We cover the rosters, the game plans, and what to expect as the US looks towards World Cup qualifying and other international competition.

And the worst team in MLS is…?



Hey, soccer fans! Welcome back to the Sons of a Pitch: An American Soccer Podcast. Tonight, we bring you a plethora of punditry as we parse the play of the this week’s participants. First, we discuss whether the New England Revolution are for real. Hampered by injuries, but still in the playoff picture, the Revs could be a season or two – or a player or two – from being a top tier Eastern Conference team. We also break down the impact of Philadelphia’s drubbing of Toronto FC to take over the top spot in the league.

Next, we answer the question: Who is the worst team in MLS right now? With choices like DC United, Atlanta United, FC Cincinnati, Colorado Rapids, and LA Galaxy, there’s been no shortage of poor play this season. Tune in for why Nick thinks the Galaxy are this season’s disappointment and hear why Mike believes Cincinnati is even worse.

We wrap up the show with talk about the USMNT finally scheduling an international friendly. They take on Wales in Swansea on November 12, 2020. We chat about what this means for the squad, how good of an opponent is Wales, and what lies in store for the future of US Soccer.
