SoccerTalk USA is news and commentary about U.S. and world soccer from the American perspective. More than scores and updates, it's a discussion of soccer and American culture and how the two don't always get along. It's a show that asks tough questions, provokes thought, and explores ideas.

Lots of news: NBC to air MLS games next year, Carlos Ruiz gone, Adu back in MLS, Robbie Keane to Galaxy? USA-Mexico pre-empted by ESPN's lameness, MLS teams advance in CCL, Portland wins big against LA, then draws and loses; DC's DeRosario has a hat trick against his former Canadian club but it's only for a point, but they come back with a big home win against Vancouver.

SoccerTalk USA Episode 299: Jul 11, 2011
It's classic games this week as Portland and Seattle clash in a five-goal thriller filled with controversy and the US Women pull out a miracle comeback against Brazil. Germany gets ousted by Japan, while Sweden also advance over Australia. In MLS, DC gets a huge win on the road against rivals NY, while RSL, LA, Houston, and Colorado all get three points, and KC get a last minute goal to keep their home unbeaten streak alive.
Most of the time, it feels as if Marc is just reading news rather than offering analysis. It seems that his understanding of the game is fairly basic.
Marc is offering a great free service for American fans. I appreciate this. With a little more work this show could be a lot better
Boring as hell
Only talks about lame MLS
Its nice to see a american soccer based podcast that updates regularly and covers all of the sport.
