    Switchbacks Review - Loyal Preview

    Switchbacks Review - Loyal Preview

    Phil and Mikka are back to talk about the absolute wild 4-4 draw against Colorado Springs Switchbacks on Friday night. The Crew delve into the match which saw El Paso Locomotive FC battle back from 3-0 to go ahead 4-3 in the second half and ultimately concede the equalizer in controversial fashion. The Crew talk about arguably the most horrific 10 minutes of Locomotive football ever, a second half that showed real quality and heart to battle back, and more shocking USL refereeing.
    The Crew also open up the mailbag and talk listener questions about an exchange of words between Locos boss John Hutchinson and the Switchbacks fans, Lucho Solignac as a midfielder, and recruiting from abroad.
    Then the Crew preview the upcoming matchup against Landon Donovan's San Diego Loyal, who will make their first trip to Southwest University Park for a Western Conference showdown in which Locomotive absolutely need to win. Stay Loco!

    Monterey Review - Switchbacks Preview

    The Crew is back to waffle a bit about sweet vs. sour candy and some team news, notably new signing Artem Kholod, the Ukrainian fullback who came through the Shakhtar Donetsk academy. Then the Crew dissect yet another dismal display, as Locomotive contrived to lose 1-0 to Monterey Bay FC on the road and go 4 straight games scoreless. The Crew discuss Lucho Solignac's woeful panenka, players finding form at different times, and whether the Locos will even make the playoffs at this rate. Then it's on to a preview of familiar foe Colorado Springs Switchbacks, who are also on a shocking run of their own but who host Locos at Weidner Field in the return fixture. This episode gets pretty ranty and existential, so bear with us and Stay Loco!

    Switchbacks Review - Roots Preview

    Mikka and Christian are back to discuss the massive 1-0 victory over Colorado Springs Switchbacks at the SWUP on Saturday night. The Crew break down a wild match that saw a Goal of the Season contender, more red cards and injuries, and refereeing controversy en route to 10 straight games undefeated for the Boys in Blue. The Crew also discuss the flurry of transfer activity that appears to be happening behind the scenes at the club.
    The Crew then look ahead to Locomotive's first ever away trip to take on Oakland Roots SC, who famously shocked them 1-0 in their first ever meeting in the 2021 USL Championship playoffs. There's also some chat about Diego Luna's first start with Real Salt Lake and food hot takes. Stay Loco!

    ATL2 Review - Switchbacks Preview

    ATL2 Review - Switchbacks Preview

    Mikka and Christian are back from a little break in recording to chat about Locomotive's imminent loan signing of Edison Azcona as well as the team's busy 3 game week, in which Locomotive took just 5 points from 9 available. The crew discusses the draws to "inferior" teams on paper, poor performances, and the desperate situation at right back. The Crew also look forward to a huge clash at home against Colorado Springs Switchbacks and how perfection will be required to beat them, despite Locomotive's historically good record against their Western Conference rivals.
    Then, Mikka talks to special guest and Inter Miami CF journalist Austin Robillard about all things Edison Azcona. Austin walks us through Azcona's stellar CONCACAF U20 campaign with the Dominican Republic, his homegrown status at Inter Miami, and what Locomotive fans can expect from the 18 year old.
