PODCAST – What’s up Internet? This week on Last Word SC Radio, Rachael Kriger takes the reins at host while Matt Pollard and Daniel Sperry have the night off. Joining her is Harvey Cruz, lead Red Bulls writer, and Jamie Rooke, our friend across the pond who covers the New England Revolution.
The trio talks about the rumors of Lionel Messi to MLS that were almost instantly shot down by his agent. Also, in more legitimate transfer news, the three talk about Giorgio Chiellini and if we could see the Italian in an LAFC shirt in the near future.
We then move on to Red Light, Yellow Light and Green Light. Rachael and Harvey argue about DC United and what it will take Harvey to get on the hype train. At one point, Jamie says he does believe in DC United. Two against one!
We talk chaos with our picks and then move into last words.

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. Born in Moscow, Russia, 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, and is entering her ninth year at Our Lady of Fatima in Pittsburgh.
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.
