Good Start! Challenge Cup Matchday one recap
Expect the unexpected I guess! Chicago won their first match of the 2022 Challenge Cup 3-1, in a performance against the Houston Dash that showcased tweaks in defense, Mal Pugh in great form, and the ongoing puzzle that is NWSL penalties. We also talk a bit about what to expect on Friday in Chicago's second match against the Kansas City Current
One day at a time: Chicago Challenge Cup Preview
We couldn't leave you hanging. Chicago has their first Challenge Cup game on Sunday, March 20 against the Houston Dash, so we sat down to do a check-in on vibes, read some tea leaves on new faces on the roster, and set reasonable expectations for a season that we won't know much about until it happens
Yuki Nagasato pod, 2022 edition
We came back for the new year, and promptly so did Yuki Nagasato. Blessed.
We sat down to chat philosophical preferences on Chicago's upcoming coaching hire, an active trade season, and the return of club legend Nagasato, whose return both highlights and could possibly assuage some foundational concerns surrounding the Red Stars this year.
Happy New Year! We back! Draft review, offseason news, TV deals, and more
It's 2022 and we are back! at it! We talk Chicago's approach to the 2022 College Draft, Sarah Luebbert staying in Mexico, development, scouting, assets, and one very cool piece of local tv coverage news.
Expansion draft recap, college draft preview
Chicago didn't do much this week, but that's never stopped us from talking soccer, so why start now! The expansion draft welcoming in the California teams happened on Thursday evening, and we sat down to talk relative value, hindsight, kindnesses, and backstage players. We also talked a bit about the nicest story of the week (not soccer) and what to expect from Chicago's strategy in Saturday's (not) college draft
Dragons, etc: Trades, Thank you's, Goodbye's, and What the Hell's
We're off the map, babes.
The Chicago Red Stars made a series of trades, signed a series of players, sent a series of tweets and much more this week. So we're here to talk about it. On how the team got here, team legends, acceptable returns, and what on earth happens going forward.
Love these two. I will be subscribing to their patreon for more broad NWSL content too.
I could listen to them talk about soccer and crs forever
Became a CRS fan during challenge cup 2020, stayed a CRS fan because of this podcast
A great Red Stars podcast.
Great content about the Red Stars. I follow several teams in the NWSL and this podcast has been invaluable!
