Great show!

Love soccer, your show, and even Mosse isn’t bad. Really great show guys thank you. The tv advice is terrific too.

Hbdrummer ,

Alexi is a true rock star

Best soccer podcast out there in my opinion
Also you should check out #askalexi on Twitter and periscope. Cool chemistry between Alexi and David as well. Even though Mosse likes the wrong Argentina team ... VAMOS RIVER!

Always interesting and intelligent

My thumbmanship is too poor to appropriately express what a good job these guys do. Two good people with diverse interests and deep soccer passion supporting US soccer interests from a global POV. It demonstrates the growth of Alexi from the brash, rogue ambassador of US soccer to the confident, well-rounded yet humble leader/supporter. But..... not without the insights, knowledge and laid back library of knowledge from Mosse. An excellent duo that I look forward to weekly as I listen in from abroad.
