Bing Bong! What’s up Internet? On this episode of Last Word SC Radio, Dan and Matt get together to recap how NYCFC became MLS Cup champions. The guys debate Sebastian Blanco starting, NYCFC’s performance, Portland Timbers poor start, the controversy over Felipe Mora’s goal, and Sean Johnson’s penalty heroics. Then we look at the expansion draft and analyze the players selected in the Charlotte FC expansion draft and the moves they’ve made since.

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, Colorado Rapids, and Saint Louis FC. 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 Pittsburgh, Pa., home to the Riverhounds. 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. By day, she is a creative copywriter in marketing for DICK’S Sporting Goods.
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.
