On this episode, the Collective open up with an update from the MLS-USL drama between Orange County SC, Los Angeles Galaxy, and the City of Irvine. The discussion opens up a bit more as the group tries to envision what else could happen as a settlement between the sides.

Next, the Collective take some time to discuss the results of the US Open Cup Final played between Orlando City SC (MLS) and Sacramento Republic FC (USL). One of the topics discussed is whether or not Sacramento’s effort has re-opened the discussion about MLS Expansion.

After the break, the Collective talked New Mexico Women’s College Soccer on another special edition of The Enchanted XI. The show is growing organically starting with constant coverage of the New Mexico Lobos, New Mexico State Aggies, Eastern New Mexico Greyhounds, and New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls. As soon as theme music and a logo are designed The Enchanted XI will have it’s own drop on your podcast feed.

Lastly, the Collective jump into The Weekly to talk about New Mexico United’s latest result against Derby Del Camino Real rival, El Paso Locomotive. They broke down the good, bad, and ugly moments of the match. They picked their Man of the Match, talked about the playoff picture, and previewed their next opponent, Rio Grande Valley Toros.
