Nathan is back after missing last weeks episode. We are also joined by a couple special guests, Rob with From the Black Hole (@FrTheBlackHole) and Dallas (@OnkelDal).

Be warned, this episode is very light on NASL and FC Edmonton news. We spend a lot of time talking about the Womens World Cup and how Edmonton and the other host cities have done so far in support for this event. We also discuss is this kind of support could help continued support for our national teams as well as FC Edmonton.

We return as the dynamic duo with plenty to talk about. While the last minute loss to the Whitecaps had us feeling pretty gutted, we managed to take plenty of positives from the game. We talk about how the Eddies fared against a pretty strong Vancouver side and how amazing the crowd support was for this game.

We also get back to talking about league results and how encouraging Sundays wins against the Atlanta Silverbacks was. We also look forward to Fridays game against a familiar foe in the Ottawa Fury.

May 19, 2015

In this episode we are joined by a long time friend Tobi, who is known as FieldTurf of Dreams on twitter (@FToD). We get him to share his experience of witnessing Edmonton's historic result in Vancouver, joining the Curva Collective for a Cascadia Cup match against Seattle, and rushing back to catch our beloved Eddies play the next day. We also analyze the loss against the Scorpions, what to look forward to against Vancouver and we touch on the upcoming Atlanta game. Most of the podcast was influenced by PBR, hence the new intro music.

May 12, 2015

In this episode, we take the opporutnity to talk about the league results again and what went wrong for Edmonton. We also offer out opinion on the postponement of the Voyageurs Cup match in Edmonton and how it can changed the dynamic of this semi final.

Also, with news of Hartford expansion, we go in depth on other rumoured expansion locations and what it could mean for the league and FC Edmonton.

Where to start?

This week we recap Edmonton's convincing win against Ottawa to advance to the semifinals of the Voyageurs Cup. We also talk about the draw against Minnesota and quickly preview next weekends matchup against the mighty Cosmos.

OH YEAH! We also get our first ever (successful) guest on the podcast. Kasey from Northern Staring Elevan joins us to talk Whitecaps and how he thinks they matchup against Edmonton.

This is a monumental episode for us and we thank you for listening!

Even though it was a bye week for FC Edmonton in league play, there is still TONS of Eddies news and info to go through. We recap the Voyageurs cup game against Ottawa and preview the second leg in Edmonton. We also update #SmittyWatch2015, discuss the release of Hauksson, recap Week 4 of the spring season, preview the upcoming game against Minnesota and even find time to talk about the friendly against Foothills FC.

Thanks for downloading! #FearNoFoe

Apr 22, 2015

This week we recap the massive win against Fort Lauderdale with the introduction of a potential new segment in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. We also commend Colin Miller's substitutions that made a massive impact immediately.

We also attempted to get our first ever guest on the podcast in Graeme Ivory, Communications Director with the Ottawa Fury to preview the upcoming V-Cup came against the Fury. Failure ensues and we attempt to relay the key points he said to get a good idea on what to expect for the game.

Apr 15, 2015

In this episode, we break down Edmonton's game against the Carolina RailHawks. Topics covered are the poor opening game attendence and what contributed, Edmonton's inability to adjust to the wind and Van Oekel's brilliant game. We also discuss what is needed for Edmonton to get back into the race for the top spot for the Spring season.

Apr 8, 2015

This week we review the Eddies performance against Jacksonville (ugh!).

We break down what went wrong in Florida and the rest of the results in the league.

We also get quite distracted by Montreals CONCACAF Champions League win. And yes, there was a few John Smits sightings.

Apr 3, 2015

In our second ever podcast, we focus on the boys in blue. We break down the roster player by player, give our observations and what we can expect from them in 2015. We also give a brief preview of what we think will happen against the Jacksonville Armada.

Also, we get a little better at podcasting. But maybe that was a combination of the scotch/rum/cigars.

Thanks again for listening, and Happy Easter!

Apr 2, 2015

In our first podcast, we preview the upcoming 2015 NASL season.

We analyze the other teams roster moves and try to guess where they will finish in the upcoming spring season.

Just a couple of quick notes. This podcast was recorded on March 23, 2015. At that moment, Minnesota United moved to MLS was not announced, but we do mention the speculation. Also, Ottawa signs Julian De Guzman. Our guess in where the Fury end up in the standings does not reflect this move.

Thank you for listening, and we hope you enjoyed it! It's only going to get better and more fun from here on out!
