    A Long Offseason ahead: Preview Show Edition

    A Long Offseason ahead: Preview Show Edition

    The Hounds have a long offseason ahead. So, Mike, Josh and Kevin took the night off and Steve and Justin took the mikes for the week. We look ahead to what could be a long offseason, consistency in the roster, say our goodbyes to Robbie and Tommy, and talk a little bit about players being sold out of USL. We look at:



    * Louisville has already made signings…

    * The Hounds haven’t announced anything.

    * What will it take for the USL to start selling players?



    And more.

    The Numbers Game

    The Numbers Game

    Ever wonder what a player is talking about when they call themselves a number 8?  Or what about a 6, or the coveted 10?  We break down all of the various player numbers, what they mean positionally, and why some teams may not play with a 6 while others have TWO of them!  Overall it was a fun conversation with a little bit of insight that you can use to impress the soccer novices in your life.

    But what do you think?  What number is Dos Santos or King Kenny?  Do the Hounds have a number 10?  Let us know!

    The No Champion Championship

    The No Champion Championship

    The USL Championship won’t have a champion thanks to COVID.  That’s pretty much the most 2020 thing to happen in 2020.  We break down how we think it should play out (even though it sounds like it won’t happen), but hey, we can dream can’t we? (Also another 2020 thing).

    We also talk all about the new USL Academy and its impact on professional soccer across the board, Kevin’s Halloween costume, our plans for the rest of the offseason, and more!

    What do you think?  Are you happy about the new Academy setup?  Do you feel bad for the Phoenix or Tampa fans who won’t have a chance to be champions?  Let us know!

    Offseason Plans

    Plans, we got them… sort of.  In this one we recap the results of our Offseason Plan Patreon Poll (so far) and share our thoughts on some of the different things that we might try this offseason.  We’d love your feedback, so if you aren’t yet a Patreon follower, click this link and join (it’s only $1/month, it helps us cover the cost of doing the show, AND it allows us to buy some cool merch to give back to YOU).

    Riverhounds 2020 Season Recap – Part 2

    Welcome to part 2 of our 2020 season recap!  We once again have the entire Mon Goals crew together to pickup where we left off last week, this time focusing more on what we’re hoping for heading towards the 2021 season.  We break down:



    * Our favorite moments from 2020,

    * What we hope to see come 2021,

    * What one player we’d hate to see leave,



    And so much more.  It’s always a ton of fun to pack everyone into one show and this one was no exception.  But what do you think of our 2020 season recap?  Do you agree with all of our pics and predictions?  Let us know!

    Thanks again for listening and all of the support over this crazy year!

    That’s all folks – Part 1

    That’s all folks – Part 1

    That’s all she wrote.  The Riverhounds’s season came to a close this past weekend, and we have lots of thoughts about why.  The entire gang get together (Mike, Kev, Josh, Justin, Steve, Laura Ellen, and Liz) and together we discuss:



    * How we felt about what we saw on the field,

    * What was missing that could have elevated the team,

    * Some of what we’d like to see as we head into next year,



    And so much more.  There were so many topics that we ended up breaking the show into 2 parts.  The second part will drop next week, so stay tuned.  That’s all we’ve got for now!

Great pod

I like these guys. They keep it tight, they know USL and the Hounds, and they keep it light. Solid.
