Today, I am on my own but there are still several topics to get into, including some major soccer news that broke earlier this morning. We will get into what that news means for US Soccer, we will then get back into some more transfer news for our players, and I will wrap today up with my first prediction of the year at what our World Cup roster will look like in 2026.

Last time out, we got into our annual Camp Cupcake roster and highlighted a couple of individuals who could have potential to make an impact in future USMNT camps. We kept it super high level and didn’t make any predictions or analyze anything as they prepared for their first friendly of 2024 against Slovenia that took place over the weekend. 

But today, I am going to be joined once again by my good friend and host of the ...

Today, we will get into this Camp Cupcake roster that was released last Friday that includes 25 players, including 15 who received their first ever call up into a senior camp. The plan for today isn’t to just go through player by player but more or less to highlight a few players who could have potential to make an impact with the senior team sooner rather than later. We will go through the squad as they prepare to face off against...

Well, it’s a brand-new year, this is our first episode of 2024. And with that comes big things, big resolutions, big events happening, and overall, just a feeling of promise within American soccer. 

We ended the year with a bit of what we called controlled chaos as I was joined by two guests in Soccer Pints designer and contributor, Eric Paullin, and Charlotte FC’s assistant coach, Brian Edwards. 

Today is a big day though, depending...

Earlier this week, I was joined by guest host Chris Piel to recap our second leg matchup against Trinidad and Tobago, aptly naming the episode Tantrum Time due to Sergino Dest’s actions that led to his dismissal from the match itself. We also spoke through our Under 17s World Cup performance and shared some MLS awards and updates on the playoffs going on at the moment there. 

Today, you’re not as lucky as it will be only me on the s...

Two weeks ago, we gave you a preview into our Nations League quarterfinal matchups against Trinidad and Tobago and also had a recap after our 3-nil victory on US soil, where I was joined by my guest host, Chris Piel, in breaking down the performances and what we could expect in that second leg down in T&T. 

Since I took last week off for the Thanksgiving holiday, we weren’t able to recap that second match, so that’s what you can...

Yesterday was all about the Nations League quarterfinal matchup that our US Men had against Trinidad and Tobago. We went through the roster that was chosen, we made predictions into the starting eleven, into the score line, and even went into some of the youth national team news that is going on right now, too. 

I had mentioned that I would be taking next week off for the holiday ...

Today, we are going to keep the same free flowing, unscripted episode model and spend the majority of the time answering questions that have come in from various listeners over the past couple of weeks and then give a final thought before wrapping it up. 

Questions include whether Tyler Adams is done, Saudi Arabia 2034, most underrated and overrated USMNT players, frustrations in youth soccer, and will we ever get a John B...

This week, we are going to look at the roster that was just released for our October friendlies coming up on October 14th against Germany and October 17th against Ghana. Once again, Gregg has made some great decisions for this group and while we still have a couple of guys out injured, it’s a strong squad coming in. So, we will review who made it, who is missing, and then we will answer another question or two that we didn’t get in...

We are about two weeks away from our next men’s national team friendly against a perennial powerhouse in Germany that is coming up on Saturday, October 14th. And while I wrapped up last week’s episode by saying we would look at those October friendlies, with the rosters not expected to be released for another week, we are going to hold off on that today. 

Instead, we have had some incredible questions come through this week that are...

This week, we are going to switch gears completely. We are going to do a first edition USMNT 2026 World Cup Roster Prediction and see if we can look into the future in just under three years’ time. With all of the significant change we saw from the 2018 World Cup qualifying cycle to the 2022 cycle, you would expect some turnover, some new faces, and some surprises. This is a near impossible task at hand but we will do our best to m...

This week, it’s all about recapping the performances from our September friendlies, who stood out, who didn’t, but more importantly, looking at how the squad responded with Gregg Berhalter back in command. There’s a lot to unpack from the two matches but we will also look at what’s ahead next month as we have a bit stiffer competition coming up with Germany and Ghana coming to the US for two more friendlies.

Due to Hurricane Idalia in the area last week that led to some earlier than expected travel, its been two weeks since we dropped our 60th episode. And, as expected, we had our US Men’s National Team roster release for our upcoming friendlies this Saturday and next Tuesday since that time. 

So, today, we are going to take a look at our roster choices, breakdown the best starting XI we could have out of this group, and take a look at ...

Now, it’s been a couple of weeks since we dropped a new episode, for a variety of reasons, but we are back today with plenty to talk about. Most notably, this week we will breakdown the USWNT and their World Cup performances, now that they have been eliminated what happens next? What were the overall thoughts on the Women’s World Cup? Who made a name for themselves?  Who didn’t? I will definitely be sharing some thoughts on this.
