Ahoy-hoy Blue Ballers and welcome back to the pod! This week Jake and Trey are feeling a little more shooketh than usual, owing to the second loss in a row from some Boys in Blue that frankly, many expected better from! But the jitters are perhaps a little unfounded, and your blue balls boys get into exactly why that might be -- including who should and shouldn't be on the field, who rings in a second-straight MOTM slot, and what -- if any -- responsibility a Ronny Deila holds for two poor performances in the early days of regular season MLS.
Then: She Believes skim-recaps, stadium boycott arguments, some coronavirus chat (we had to get you in there, COVID-19!) and a white-knuckled preview of the home opener against Dallas and the first leg against Tigres, both of which have our Blue Balls on edge. Don't forget to wash your hands -- you've got Blue Balls.
Buongiorno Blue Boleros and welcome to another journey with us on our Super Sixth Season in the Bronx (and elsewhere... everywhere). Your hosts Jake and Trey have never left and take you through the new kids on the block in Nashville and Inter Miami, as well as the beginning of the enigmatic SheBelieves Cup. But first, the abruptness of injustice that encompassed in Columbus. Can you learn anything from eighty eight minutes of short-handed play? Of course not, but we stretch it out nonetheless. Oh. And Toronto. February Cold leads to a March un-scrolled so keep it tight: you've got Blue Balls.
Ahoy-hoy Blue Ballers and welcome to part 2 of Blue Balls' postseason roundup and 2020 preview of the one, the only, the controversial and the beloved Boys In Blue. Trey and Jake kick it off discussing the two-legged CONCACAF Champions League round of Sixteen and NYCFC's commanding 6-3 victory -- and what it can tell us about the season to come! A few roster run-throughs follow, and the boys wrap it up by finally setting in stone the sixth annual OVER/UNDER competition, which promises to be perhaps the most BRUTAL YET. Rock 'em, sock 'em, but don't block 'em: you've got Blue Balls.
Ahoy-hoy Blue Ballers and welcome to the offseason round up of the historic SIXTH SEASON of Blue Balls. Your OG Boys Trey and Jake are BACK, surprising absolutely nobody, to break down the surplus of offseason news, evaluate some new faces, and talk wild speculation about what these changes might mean for NYCFC in 2020.
On the docket are: new Best Boy Ronnie Deila and the myriad ways to pronounce his name; new auzzie sporting director David Lee; the rise of the inaugural homeboy Mehdi Ballouchy; extensions; signings; youths; developments; and the Front Office. For a primer on where things stand heading into NYCFC's sixth season, it can't be beat. Manspread or womanspread all you want -- you've got Blue Balls.
A deflated pip pip cheerio, Blue Ballers, and welcome to an unexpected penultimate ep of your favorite only NYCFC talkathon. Jake and Trey try to make some sense of the collapse against the crimson Canadians suffered this past week. BUT FIRST — a visitor from a neighboring Blue Media Member has some real life, Woodward and Bernstein ass Investigative Journalism to promote on the pod, and we’re there for all of it. You don’t want to miss this unusually hot stove. Plus: the rumor mill in full swing again, and the long-awaited results of this year’s Over/Under bonanza as reported by Trey. (So can we really trust the numbers?) Raise a glass pigeon fam — this week, all you have is Blue Balls.
