If You Want to Know About Soccer

If you want to know about soccer and what is happening in both the United States and Europe, then you definitely want to listen to the Total Soccer Show. It’s hosts are great and give you the feel of having a discussion with friends about the weekend’s games then this is a podcast for you.

I had not followed soccer for a while and TSS helped me get back into the sport. On top of that, TSS is just a fun show.

Unique Conversational Questions

What a marvelous adjective question about a combined u.s. WNT and u.s. MNT team! And a nice discussion. Hadn’t even thought about the fact that the US team would be better with more women on it but that’s so true! It’s probably something I’ll think of for a while.
A similar question would be to fill out an 11 person roster from the US WNT and US MNT, which would be the best person of both squad for each 11 positions?
Keep up the good work and thank you for keeping your podcast Language clean.
