PODCAST – What’s up Internet? What did we just watch on Sunday soccer wise? Racheal, Matt, and Jamie are back with another episode of Last Word SC Radio. We discuss the MLS Cup Playoffs Round of 16 to date, discussing every match up so far, what comes next, and what it says about each team. Of course we discuss how Sporting KC downed St. Louis CITY and that Vanni Sartini red card against LAFC.
We discuss the playoff format and why we kind of hate it. Rachael has some WoSo news as Emma Hayes takes over the USWNT and the NWSL Final is set.
Here’s the link to that Plymouth Argyle player fines article.

About the Hosts:
Matt Pollard is the Managing Editor of Last Word on Soccer and an engineer. When he’s not watching soccer or at work, the Colorado transplant enjoys skiing and hiking all over the state. The LA Kings will always be his first sports love, though MLS didn’t exist at the time. Once called the Shakespeare of LWOS, he covers the LA Galaxy and Colorado Rapids. Like the Galaxy, he too was handcrafted in LA.
Rachael Kriger is a Senior Editor at Last Word on Soccer. She is the lead writer for the Seattle Sounders, U.S. Women’s National Team and NWSL. Hailing from Moscow, Russia, she resides in Ocala, Florida, where she is a youth minister. Rachael is a big fan of her home country’s national teams and cried when Russia beat Spain in the World Cup Round of 16. However, Rachael has to admit that basketball was her first love and still keeps in contact with that sport through coaching.
Daniel Sperry is an Editor at Last Word on Soccer. He covers mainly Sporting KC and U.S. Soccer for LWOS and discusses San Francisco Giants baseball elsewhere. He was born and raised in Northern California, hence his love for Bay Area teams. He currently resides in the KC Suburbs with his incredible wife and energetic puppy. Outside of sports and writing, he loves a good stout and nature, whether that is hiking, camping, canoeing, birding, or some activity with all four.
Harvey Cruz is a staff writer at Last Word. He covers the New York Red Bulls. Born in New Jersey, where all the fun weather is at. Taylor ham or pork roll, he doesn’t care because it’s Bacon-Egg & Cheese for life. Your playoff heartbreaks don’t compare. But it’s okay, because you’ll likely never meet another Harvey in your life. Unique.
