Episode 36: Pharmaceutical Soccer Interview

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, Adam sits down with Clay from the Pharmaceutical Soccer Podcast and chat about all things Nashville SC related. We discuss the early history of their podcast, thoughts and reflections on how Nashville's first official MLS season has gone as well as how their roster was built and whether or not they can lock down a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. As always with our guests we play a game of Who Am I and end off the episode with a look at how Nashville can add to their squad for the next few seasons. 

Apologies for the few breaks in audio, we had some technical issues when recording that should be fixed for next week's episode.

Episode 35: Double Debuts and the Rest of the West!

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode of the Designated Player's Podcast, Connor returns and rejoins Adam and Andrew to talk about this week in MLS. We start with a moment of silence for the loss of Benny ball in DC, followed by some analysis on the pair of debuts from the Atlanta-NYRB game.

We also make sure to discuss who we believe is going to grab the last three spots in the western conference with many teams close and in the running. Will a team like Vancouver sneak in, or will San Jose and the others stay hot enough to keep their current playoff place?

We end the episode with a discussion about RSL going through some tough times right now and we make sure to talk about it and why we believe they've fallen since last season, as well as Adam's weekly recap of all the events around the league from the past matchweek and as always; our fantasy MLS must haves and differential players!

Should it continue to be Zach Steffen? Or has Matt Turner performed well enough with New England to merit playing time? Does someone else entirely deserve the number 1 shirt?
