NYCFC Plays Two in LA, Mikey Lopez Returns to Texas, and Jon Agrees With What He Says / Ep 153 / Blue City Radio

Episode 153:

As luck would have it Mike, Jon and J.R. would kick off the show with a hot topic and before the show could be posted, NYCFC would announce an update to the story negating Jon’s comments and changing the narrative.  We honestly can’t complain, we are pleased that they heard the criticism and make the necessary arrangements.

In the second segment San Antonio FC midfielder Mikey Lopez joins the show.  Together with the guys they talk a little Legend Mentoring, Texas geography and social media superstars.  Mikey also shares his feelings on returning to Texas and the chance to be reunited with old friends.

The guys wrap up the show discussing the game versus LA Galaxy and the positive impact of the NYCFC Academy players on the preseason camp.

In the second segment, David Gass from Extra Time Radio joins the show while seemingly riding an MTA bus, to discuss what he saw from the NYCFC Academy at the Generation Adidas Cup.

Finally, the guys look ahead to this weekend’s matchup versus Columbus and take a check on the fans’ expectations through 7 games.

Welcome To the Diskerud Show / Ep 102 / Blue City Radio

Episode 102:

NYCFC released the roster of players attending pre-season training in Jacksonville, FL.  Two players not on the list, Mix Diskerud and Josh Saunders.  Both players who are very much foundational pieces of the club’s history were unceremoniously not invited to the team’s training camp.

Jon and Mike talk about the rest of the roster including NYCFC Academy player James Sands, the first academy player to attend a first team camp.

In the second segment, Chris Magalee from NYCFC Nation joins the show to continue the conversation.

Turf Burn / Ep 87 / Blue City Radio

Episode 87

Following the win against DC United, Patrick Vieira gave the NYCFC players a few days off.  It would seem that only a couple of them returned from their hiatus ready.  NYCFC went into Gillette Stadium on Saturday and played one of their worst games in the team’s history.

Luckily for the Blue City Radio listeners two great guests join the show this week and neither is here to discuss #NEvNYC.  First Greg Lalas, a co-founder of Kicking and Screening and Digital Editor for MLS.com tells us everything we need to know about the 8th Annual Kicking and Screening Filmfest which kicks off tonight, Tuesday, September 13 at 7pm at Scandanavia House.

Following that conversation, Mike interviews NYCFC Youth Technical Director, Rodrigo Marion to get an update on NYCFC’s Academy teams and the other programs NYCFC has in place for youth development.
