LAFC Season Pass S02/E08: The Original Trio Returns, MLS Is Back Tournament Preview, Max Bretos

After three months, Los Angeles Football Club is set to make its long-awaited return to the soccer pitch! As LAFC prepares to compete in the MLS Is Back Tournament, it does so without talisman Carlos Vela, who has decided to withdraw from the tournament to stay on the west coast with his pregnant wife. The reigning MLS MVP will be missed on the pitch, but LAFC has many other sources of offense that will have to step up and pick up the slack for the absent captain. LAFC will play its first match of the tournament group stage on Monday July 13th against the Houston Dynamo, with matches against the Los Angeles Galaxy (7/18) and Portland Timbers (7/23) to follow. LAFC's group F is widely considered the strongest of the tournament, so LAFC will have to work to punch a ticket into the knockout round. All this as the specter of COVID 19 looms over the competition, the country and the world. Ryan Wallerson of the Los Angeles Daily News, Writer at Large Alex Dwyer and the long lost Josh Gross(!!!) have gotten the original band back together for the duration of the tournament. On this first episode ahead of the first whistle, LAFC commentator Max Bretos joins the cast to talk everything LAFC, Vela and tournament expectations MLS is Back, LAFC is back, Season Pass is back!

LAFC Season Pass S02/E07: Philadelphia Union Review, LAFC Improvements, Cruz Azul Round I Preview

It's not an exaggeration to call Los Angeles Football Club's second league match of the season against the Philadelphia Union an instant classic. The Union took three separate one-goal leads on LAFC, but non of them lasted ten minutes. More early season magic from Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi, as well as a defender's goal from centerback Eddie Segura, lifted LAFC to a point at home. Now, the team's focus is on CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal opponent Cruz Azul. The Liga MX club will travel to Banc of California Stadium on Thursday (3/12/20) for the first leg before the teams play the second match of the round in Mexico City's Estadio Azteca on 3/18/20. Ryan Wallerson of the Los Angeles Daily News and Writer at Large Alex Dwyer are once again joined by Tigers Supporter Group member and youth soccer coach Pierce Maher to talk about the match against Philadelphia, preview the first leg of the CONCACAF semifinal and discuss the biggest concerns for the club as Cruz Azul looms on the horizon.

LAFC Season Pass S02/E06: Club Leon Round II & Inter Miami Recap, Vela Magic, Philadelphia Preview

After Tuesday's 3-0 victory over Club Leon at the Banc, Los Angeles Football Club advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2020 CONCACAF Champions League. Read that again, because it still feels surreal to type. The CONCACAF comeback, fueled by late goals from Carlos Vela and Diego Rossi, was one of the most important results in club history. Not even a loss to Inter Miami in the Major League Soccer season opener would have dampened the vibe around the team coming off such a momentous match on the international stage. Unfortunately for Rodolfo Pizarro, Lee Nguyen, David Beckham and the rest of Inter Miami, Carlos Vela (happy belated birthday from the Season Pass family to the captain!) had enough magic in his left foot to guide LAFC to a second win in four days and one of the best weeks ever for the black and gold universe. Next for LAFC will be the second league match of the season against the Philadelphia Union. The club will host Cruz Azul to begin the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal just four days later, so Bob Bradley & co. have to begin thinking about how to navigate a busy beginning to the 2020 season. Ryan Wallerson of the Los Angeles Daily News and Writer at Large (he said small, but we all know Dweezy is anything but) Alex Dwyer are once again joined by Tigers Supporter Group member and youth soccer coach Pierce Maher to talk about the second leg against Leon, the season opener against Inter Miami and discuss the biggest concerns for the club moving forward towards Philly and Cruz Azul.

LAFC Season Pass S02/E05: Club Leon Round I Recap, Club Leon Round II Preview, Inter Miami Preview

After Tuesday's 2-0 defeat to Club Leon deep in the heart of Mexico, Los Angeles Football Club has a lot of work to do if it wants to move onto the quarterfinals of the 2020 CONCACAF Champions League. Leon didn't completely overwhelm LAFC in the first leg of this round-of-sixteen match up. However, the Liga MX club beat the black and gold at its own game. Leon stayed on the attack from start to finish and if the home team was more clinical with its own chances, LAFC would be returning to the Banc in an ever larger hole. Conversely, LAFC squandered all of its chances, some very good, to grab a road goal out of Estadio Leon. Leon scored two goals in the first leg, both coming on bad moments from LAFC outside backs. In the 21st minute, right back Tristan Blackmon slipped in the box, giving Jean Meneses a clean shot at goal. Seconds from the end regulation, Angel Mena beat Mohamed El-Munir and scored Leon's second. If LAFC are going to climb out of this hole and win the round, it'll take one of the best performances in club history to do it. Time will tell if the black and gold are up to the task, but one factor inevitably on LAFC's side: 22,000+ fans and supporters will pack the Banc on Thursday, Feb. 27th to cheer on the comeback. Ryan Wallerson of the Los Angeles Daily News and Writer at Large (he said small, but we all know Dweezy is anything but) Alex Dwyer are once again joined by Tigers Supporter Group member and youth soccer coach Pierce Maher to talk about the first leg, preview the second, and also look forward to the Major League Soccer season opener against Inter Miami just three days later.

LAFC Season Pass S02/E04: Toronto F.C. Recap, Olympic Players Return, Leon Awaits

LAFC completed an undefeated preseason with Wednesday's victory over Toronto F.C., but all the work that Bob Bradley & C.o have put into the preseason was in preparation for the club's Champions League debut. The warm up period is over; Leon awaits on the other side of President's Day weekend. Uruguayan forward Brian Rodriguez continued his preseason dominance, scoring his third goal in three matches for LAFC against Toronto. Carlos Vela and newly minted academy legend Christian Torres scored the other goals in LAFC's 3-1 victory on Wednesday. It's always good to see the MVP contributing to the offense, but watching the 15-year-old Torres, the first academy player to score in a senior team match, find the back of the net was a heartwarming moment for the entire organization. Now it gets real. LAFC will play its inaugural CONCACAF Champions League match against Leon on Tuesday, and though the team looked impressive this preseason, LAFC still has many roster questions as it heads to Mexico to try to get a result on the road in arguably the biggest game in the club's short history to date. Ryan Wallerson of the Los Angeles Daily News and Writer at Large (he said small, but we all know Dweezy is anything but) Alex Dwyer are joined by Tigers Supporter Group member and youth soccer coach Pierce Maher to talk about the Toronto F.C. match, how LAFC should balance returning players with those who participated in the full preseason, and begin to look toward Leon.

LAFC Season Pass S02/E03: FC Dallas Match Recap, Brian Rodriguez Balls Out, New MLS CBA

LAFC and FC Dallas played to a 2-2 draw at the Banc in the third preseason game of 2020, but even without a third consecutive preseason victory, there were plenty of positives for Bob Bradley & Co. to take from the match. Uruguayan forward Brian Rodriguez scored a goal in his second consecutive match, multiple LAFC players went the full 90 minutes and the team remains undefeated in the preseason (Bob Bradley doesn't care. It's preseason). LAFC has one more preseason match, on Feb. 12 against Toronto FC, before the team heads to Mexico to face Leon on the 18th. LAFC still has plenty of preparation to do for its CONCACAF Champions League debut, but Thursday's draw was another step in the right direction. Ryan Wallerson of the Los Angeles Daily News and Writer at Large (he said small, but we all know Dweezy is anything but) Alex Dwyer are again joined by Tigers Supporter Group member and youth soccer coach Pierce Maher (get used to him!) to talk about the FC Dallas match, LAFC's biggest roster questions at this stage in preseason and the new collective bargaining agreement that the league signed hours before Thursday's match against Dallas. No work stoppage!!!

LAFC Season Pass S02/E02: Peñarol Match Recap, 2020 Player First Impressions, Kobe Appreciation

Los Angeles Football Club welcomed its supporters back to Banc of California Stadium for the first time in 2020 and lets face it, even if you didn't recognize every player that Bob sent out onto the pitch against Peñarol, that matters so much less when the black and gold are victorious! LAFC's head coach took full advantage of his unlimited preseason substitutions; 26 players contributed to LAFC's 2-0 win over the Uruguayan club, including three Phoenix Rising FC players and six academy players(Dweezy officially wins the gentleman's bet from last week about seeing them in a match). Before the mass substitutions at the start of the second half, Latif Blessing played well right back, Vela hit his first left footed goal of the new decade, Adrian Perez continued his strong start to the preseason with a goal, and Kenneth Vermeer had a successful LAFC debut. After the match, Bob said that there is a lot to improve on, but the coaches were pleased on the night. Even by Bob's high standards, Saturday's match gave fans and coaches alike several reasons to smile. Ryan Wallerson of the Los Angeles Daily News and Writer at Large (he said small, but we all know Dweezy is anything but) Alex Dwyer are joined by Tigers Supporter Group member and youth soccer coach Pierce Maher to talk about the Peñarol match, LAFC's first impressions in 2020 and mourn the passing of Kobe Bryant (It still feels so strange to say and read). Rest In Peace Kobe, young Gianna and the seven other souls lost in that tragic helicopter crash.

LAFC Season Pass S01/E040: Season Two Finale, FC FC Crossover, Spice and Slim Join the Fray

It's been a ride, but episode 40 is the end of the line for season one of the LAFC Season Pass podcast. It's a nice round number, to go with the many that LAFC racked up in 2019, but the final episode may actually be the biggest mess of the bunch. The boys from FC FC, Josh Spice and Slim Koda, will see to that. FC FC, LAFC's sister podcast, is the ying to the yang that is Season Pass. Where Dweezy and Wallerson keep the conversation concise and on the pitch, Dweezy, Spice and Slim talk long and loud about everything LAFC BUT the matches. The resulting combination is a slightly longer pod with way more opinion and topics of mini-conversation. This Season Pass / FC FC crossover showcases the best of the "It Never Rains" podcasts. If you love this show, check FC FC out! If you followed Slim and Spice here from FC FC for the first time, welcome and stick around! On the pod: Lee Nguyen is bound for Inter Miami after being selected in the third round of the Expansion Draft on Tuesday. Where does that leave the LAFC midfield depth? Where can LAFC roster improve in general ahead of a big season in 2020? What are Slim and Spice's favorite on field moments from the 2019 season? Tune in and find out! That'll be it until LAFC training Camp in January; thanks for listening all season! We'll be back and better in season two. L.A. is Black and Gold!

LAFC Season Pass S01/E039: Western Conference Final Review, Play by Play Breakdown, Postgame Quotes

For a few minutes there in the first half, Los Angeles Football Club was on its way to MLS Cup. A free kick strike from midfielder Eduard Atuesta in the 17th minute opened the scoring in the Western Conference Final against the Seattle Sounders and allowed the black and gold faithful to dream of hosting the championship game. However, it was not to be. LAFC allowed three unanswered goals to Seattle, losing the match to the Sounders 3-1. It was LAFC first ever loss to Seattle and the club's third loss at home in all competitions in 2019. Seattle's physical playing style frustrated LAFC enough to knock the team off of its path to glory. Instead of the Bradley Bowl, MLS Cup 2019 will feature Seattle vs Toronto III. An excellent match up, but not the one LAFC fans want or expected. How will LAFC's 2019 season be remembered now that the club has failed to lift MLS Cup? Ryan Wallerson of the Southern California News Group and Alex Dwyer of MLSsoccer.com weigh in on LAFC's performance against the Seattle, break down match play-by-play as told by Dweezy's game notes and discuss the season as a whole now that the playoff run is over.
