Football 2 Futbol: MLS Week 8 Preview

Editor’s Note: This all encompassing sports podcast mostly discusses American Football, College Football, and North American Soccer, but it also delves into NBA Basketball, MLB Baseball, Hockey and anything else the guys can think to talk about. This smart show will give listeners all the sports talk they need.

On another all Futbol edition, Sean and Matt break down the two Viernes de Futbol games between Chicago and NYCFC and Colorado vs. Dallas.

Then the guys touch on the US U-23 win for the USA over Mexico and if Seattle really should even bother trying to sign Jordan Morris.

After that, we discuss what to make of Montreal’s 1-1 draw with Club America and what it means for the second leg on Wednesday night.

Finally, we wrap things up with a few news and notes such as: is it better to play in MLS or sit on the bench in Europe and where does Tesho Akindele have the best opportunity at the International Level, and there’s also a preview with predictions for the rest of the games happening in MLS Week 8.

Football 2 Futbol airs live at Midnight EST on Friday Nights and is then available immediately after on-demand on these platforms: on the LAST WORD RADIO I-Tunes and Stitcher, Tune-In Radio, Player FM, and Bluburry.

The guys will be back on Tuesday morning with a look at the 2015 NFL schedule release and a 2015 NFL Draft preview as well.

Sean Garmer: is a crazy mix of Arkansas, Venezuela, and Texas all rolled into one. He studied Journalism at the University of North Texas and hopes to one day be able to return to finish his degree. Having been born in Arkansas, his favorite college team is the Arkansas Razorbacks, but all of his professional loves come from the DFW area, where he spent 20 years of his life. Sean’s first love is soccer, which began from having an entire latino side of the family that watched the sport. It then grew into him playing soccer all the way into high school and college. He was also able to do color commentary for the University of North Texas Women’s soccer team as well. He then transitioned that into several writing gigs on various websites, including being paid to cover every game in several World Cups. Sean is an avid FC Dallas supporter and has grown to love MLS above all other soccer leagues. His second sport is a tie between American Football and Basketball. Where Sean is a diehard Cowboys and Mavericks fan respectively, but also tries to keep up with other sports as much as he can.

Matt Pollard: is a Chemical Engineering Grad Student and Staff Writer for the MLS department at Last Word on Sports. When he’s not playing with fire, he’s going for a run, trying a microbrewery, or watching sports. His first sports love was the LA Kings, though MLS didn’t exist at the time. Once called the Shakespeare of the department, he describes himself as a typical tuba playing Ginger Ninja, Environmental Crusader, Sports Hipster, and Miami Hurricane. Like the Galaxy, he too was handcrafted in LA
