Road Dominance, USMNT Futility, and Red Bulls Visit NY / Ep 76 / Blue City Radio

With Mike away, Jon takes over the hosting duties.  First rule for next time is to buy Jon a stopwatch.  He is joined by Martin Bihl from Last Word on Sports.  Once the party starts these two can go all night long.

I know Jon mentions that recorded on Sunday, I wonder if they finished before Monday rolled around.

Jon and Martin do get around to talking about NYCFC.  They also sprinkle in some Copa America as well as some Euros talk.

Nothing is promised.

The tragedy from Orlando reminds us of that.  We reflect on that and pay respect to the victims.

We then get into the work of talking soccer, talking match ups and line ups and the two games ahead for NYCFC.

Jon and Mike are joined by First Team Podcast host, John Frusciante, to discuss the New York Cosmos.  Then Jon and Mike look ahead to Saturday’s Eastern Conference battle with Philadelphia.

The more we get to understand Vieira the coach, the more the confidence grows.  Vieira preached humility as he stressed the importance of the mental game in NYCFC’s play.

Jon and Mike discuss the loss at home, but point to the horizon and the future ahead.

We discuss the Frank Lampard post game antics and then say goodbye to another legend in sports.

Another 2 points lost.  For the second time at Yankee Stadium this season, NYCFC give up the tying goal in the final minute of a game.

In the second segment, Mike interviews Debbie Harrison as she shares stories about Jack’s path to being a member of NYCFC.

We also discuss the controversy around Jack’s support of team mate Frank Lampard and finally look ahead at Thursday’s match versus Real Salt Lake.
