Highlights from this week’s show.
Brad, Bryan, Bill and I highlight our best and worst moments from last week.
Russell Cicerone joined FC Cincinnati this past offseason after spending last year with Portland Timbers 2. After spending the first few months of the season as a background player, Cicerone has absolutely made the most of his opportunities of late. He got the start a few weeks ago against Minnesota United FC in the US Open Cup and really impressed that evening. Coach Alan Koch was so impressed he gave him the next two matches as well. Russell set up a goal in North Carolina and finally got on the scoresheet himself on Wednesday night with a header briefly giving FC Cincinnati the lead. It was his first goal for the club and if the past couple of weeks have given us any indication, he brings a breath of fresh air to that right flank. We’re thrilled to have the chance to talk with him this week. Russ was a terrific guest.
The United bid won the 2026 World Cup which means there will be World Cup matches being played in the United States, Canada, and Mexico!
FC Cincinnati announced last week that their international friendly this year will be against Espanyol from La Liga. Tickets go on sale June 25th and the match will be played on July 28th.
Don’t adjust your earbuds, yes, Bryan really asked Jeff Berding and Luke Sassano to sign free agent Landon Donovan. We discuss Donovan this week after this ridiculous sponsored tweet he put out. Probably wasn’t the best idea.
Tweet of the Week
My boy Jrodius, formerly of The Best Soccer Show, now on the podcast Slop Culture had this to say about Landon Donovan.
The whole “Mexico is our second team” thing is like telling your wife you cheated on her but at least it was with her sister.
