Stormy Weather (MLSTalk Podcast)
The MLSTalk Crew got together a day early this week to bid adieu to the Major League Soccer regular season before Hurricane Grace would have a chance to wash it out. The seeds are set, the matches played, but the topic of the moment was the new deal between NBC Universal and the English Premier League. The ramifications for MLS were discussed, as it could be a very good (or bad) development for the league.
The recent matches (and their impact on the Playoff brackets) were discussed, including congratulations to Chris Wondolowski for a record-tying season. While they didn’t know the ending of the match, the LA Galaxy scored late through Mike Magee to keep Seattle in the #3 position in the West (and also ensure DC United has the third best record in the league).
They also previewed the 4 vs 5 matchups midweek. They finished up with some talk of Landon Donovan’s future, followed by their MLS Best XIs.
Please be on the lookout Friday for another podcast as we try to keep up with the playoff developments. Two teams will be knocked out on Wednesday and Thursday, and we’ll break it all down. Thank you for listening to the podcast, feel free to reach us at these addresses or comment below:
