"It allows us to now go forward" - A Conversation with Rory Dames
The Red Stars made some big moves recently, and we had to have Head Coach Rory Dames on the pod to talk about it. Southside Trap discussed with Dames the ending of the Challenge Cup, what (and who) developed during the Fall Series, how Expansion Drafts are difficult for everybody, what Louisville has in front of them this week, and what Chicago wants to do now.
Felt like a friend: Yuki Nagasato and Savannah McCaskill to Racing Louisville
We didn't know exactly how to go about this week's podcast, but we did our very best. Sometimes it's ok to just feel things. Chicago made a deal with Racing Louisville, we lost some good Red Stars, and we talked through what exactly that all felt like.
Southside Trap Presents: A Fall Series Recap
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the weirdest of times, it was the Fall Series. The future awaits ever more presently, but Southside Trap wanted to take a second and discuss what came to pass at the end of this year, in all its glory and all its shortcomings. Enjoy.
Fall Series Finale: Chicago vs Sky Blue Recap
We'll have a longer Fall Series overview in the upcoming weeks, but first we needed to sit down and talk about whatever that last game was! Southside Trap discusses: missing pieces, weird calls, collective action, weak-side defending, winning halves, happy returns, many USWNT call-ups and we close out the episode with post-game audio from Sarah Gorden and Arin Wright
"It's been a very unique year" - A Conversation with Kealia Watt
This one has been in the works for a while. On Wednesday morning, Southside Trap sat down with Kealia Watt to talk about becoming a Red Star, the upheaval of this year, getting comfortable with a new team, the Challenge Cup experience, the city of Chicago, the Red Stars attack, and many other things, including the teams goals against Sky Blue this weekend and beyond.
An air of finality: Chicago vs Washington Pt II Fall Series Recap
For better or worse, the Red Stars are moving into the end of their 2020 campaign (for real this time), and we're here to talk about it. We talk Chicago's draw with the Washington Spirit, possession battles, physicality, goalkeeping, breakthroughs and late equalizers. We also preview Chicago's last game against Sky Blue (spoiler, we just want them to have fun).
