As a Fan.... Season 2, Episode #08: Copa Gold wrap up, Olympics, and Messi

After a short two-week break of the boys of B3, we are back with another episode. This episode we will wrap up the Gold Cup of the Concacaf and the lessons learned about the tournament, the development of the sport in the area, and most importantly, the summer success of the US and the summer failures of Mexico teams. We also talk about the Olympic games........ specifically the football/soccer U23 games in Tokyo. For the women's, the favorites (at least in the US) got defeated in the semi at the hands of Canada. This would give the USWNT to play, and eventually win, for the bronze medal against Australia. For the Gold medal match, Canada and Sweden will be playing Friday August 6th to decide who will be new Olympic Gold medal squad. On the Men's side Mexico will fight for a bronze medal against the hosts Japan, and Brazil/Spain will play for Gold. To end the episode we talk about the surprising news that Lionel Messi will be a free agent and will not be signed as a FC Barcelona player. We are all now part of history of the beautiful game. This is truly unprecedented in more ways that we could imagine that will affect FC Barcelona, La Liga, Spanish Football as a product, and most of all Messi and the closure of his wonderful stewardship of the last of his kind of player. Life goes no, the club will move on, the fans will learn to accept it, and just hope FC Barcelona (when the time is right) be able to give Messi the send off he deserves and that Camp Nou is packed to give their thanks to their #10. Godspeed Lio, thank you for all the years in Barcelona, and for making the Beautiful game even more beautiful.

As a Fan.... Season 2, Episode #07: Copas wrap up, and Gold Cup first round

We are wrapping up the Finals of Copa Europa and Copa America. England v Italy gave us a good Sunday game but far from the expectations. England's lack creativity found themselves up 1-0 in the 2nd minute, but as Italy settle into the game the game quickly move one-way and Italy was in full control of game. Argentina v Brazil gave us a bad Saturday game but exactly what we expected from these two countries. Brazil was looking to control the game but Argentina was closing all the channels and shutting down all transitions, while Argentina was sloppy in the final third; and with a brilliant pass from De Paul, or terrible mistake by Lodi, Di Maria score the only goal of the game. In the end the Football/Soccer Gods gave Messi his first senior trophy with Argentina, does this cement his 7th Ballon D'Or? Finally we come back to North America to where we have now seen all the teams play at least 1 game. Diving into the big teams, poor planning, and surprises for this Gold Cup. To end the episode we talk about the Mexico fans homophobic chant and the mess that it is, and the issues it will cost the Mexico Federation. Listen to the thoughts of both of us on this matter, but ultimately this NEEDS TO STOP IMMEDIATELY, and consequences need to be set to anyone doing this to set a precedent. Beer of episode: Quaff On!

This Episode started the hosts and a guest taking on the world on soccer while this virus is stopping all sports around the world. We start by the news that the USSF is closing their mens and women’s academies. This is in partial due to clubs having their own academies to develop talent within a club and not relying as much on USSF academies to grow players.. We also talked about FC Barcelona making another try at getting Neymar during Summer transfer, and also Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan. Due to Juventus financial limitations due to the Corona Virus, they need to move player in order stay afloat. An easy fix is to sell Ronaldo, but the question is who would buy? Jaime has the answer. For this episode we decided to talk about the 3 most influential players that have made a mark in our football/soccer life.

As a Fan.... Season 1, Episode #27: The Favorite kits episode, and more

Both hosts are in studio talking about the beautiful game, while enduring this quarantine and stay-home prevention and we have guest of the show and Dan’s best man Alex.. We talk about the few leagues still playing, behind close doors, and the problems the players are facing as player don’t want to play and leagues are forcing them to play. Players have now taken pay cuts to support the clubs employees. The biggest pay cut was in Barcelona FC that their players took a 70% pay cut, in order for the rest of the club employees to keep their full wages. Other clubs, like Liverpool FC, went ahead and furlough their employees before cutting player wages, which backfire as the club is one of the richest in the world; while other clubs are finding it difficult to stay financially alive and may be force to declare bankruptcy. We then talk about supporting a team that is not big and flashy but rather supporting a team the can really use any kind of support. For host Jaime, this team would be the Forest Green Rovers of League 2 in England; guest Alex would be involved in a team where his last name origin is from and support their local team; for host Daniel he would rather invest in different clubs that are smaller and can use the support, starting with the Indy 11 from USL.

This year US will face returning (and current champion) England, Japan, and debutant Spain.

To which the players from both teams decided to stop playing and just play keep up amongst all the players on the pitch….. given that the score at that time was a 6-0 for Bayern. We read news about USMNT keeper, Zack Steffen, playing for NYC FC (sibling team of Manchester City in EPL) is not confirmed to be Guardiola’s second keeper as Bravo is set to depart over the summer.

We also talked about El Clasico and the poor performance from Barcelona after having a good first half, but then something happened and either Barcelona couldn’t find their rhythm or Real Madrid found the way to hurt them; and so they did by beating their eternal rivals at the Bernabeu 2-0. We briefly talked about the Carabao Cup final that gave Manchester City their first silverware of the year by beating Aston Villa 2-1. We also discussed the Everton vs. Manchester United VAR decision at the end of the game that removed a goal at the 90+ minutes to give the game a 1-1 draw. Also we have no more undefeated teams in European league competitions as Liverpool lost against Watford, making Dan a very happy fan; and Liverpool also got eliminated from the FA Cup at the hands of Chelsea. Last, but not least, was the games of week 1 in MLS. In which two new expansion teams made their debut: Nashville vs. Atlanta, and Inter Miami vs. LAFC. We finish the episode with our MUST/MISS section where we suggest games that our listeners should follow during this international break... or not follow.

Jaime still believes that City’s March schedule is more difficult than Liverpool, giving Liverpool a path to be the EPL Champs by last match day in March, and celebrate their first EPL title at the Etihad in April. Champ Leave gave us great games with Bayern destroying Chelsea, Napoli and Barcelona getting a vanilla draw, Lyon giving the surprise so far by wining 1-0 against Juventus, and City dominating royalty in Real Madrid.
