Grim tidings, Blue Ballers! Jake and Trey are back and apoplectic re: the state of NYCFC. With just two points out of a possible fifteen in the last five matches, are these the boys in blue we thought we knew? We break down blame among the players, in the front office, and of course under the new Gaffer. A man-by-man unpacking of DC's humiliating draw as well as constant reference to the muddy waters NYCFC has been treading for the last month. Blame it on the injuries, blame it on the schedule, but at the end of the day you gotta blame it on something fixable if you want to see a future forward.
Part 1 of 2 - we're saving pre-cap and national talk till next week! Stay woke and don't choke - you've got Blue Balls.
Ahoy-hoy Blue Ballers and welcome back for another installment of the only NYCFC podcast, period! Jake and Trey are back to talk about the near-misses of the Canadian carnival of competitions our Boys in Blue just wrapped. What happened in Toronto? What happened to Vancouver? What is happening to our defense and why are we loaning out Saad Abdul-Salaam just at a moment when a little defensive depth wouldn't be unwelcome?? All these and more are talked about with just the hint of detail and insight.
Then: the first weekend of Premier League action, some transfer mumbles, and the usual judgment-free jawing until a frenzied Philadelphia precap and a wink at the third of three Hudson River Rivalries to come. Measure twice & cut once - you've got Blue Balls.
Top of the crop top, blue ballers, and welcome back to the blue barty bus. Jake and Trey return in the thick thick summer air to recap the Orlando and Seattle games, probe at the weak spots, grumble about the schedule. Then: much discussion over how the sweaty season is going so far - including but not limited to injuries, lineup experiments, a Dome report card and even a Senseless Starting XI in the face of muchas lineup turnover in anticipation of the Vancouver match. Plus: the world cup is a thing which happened, I guess. Book your flight back from Russia and get an emergency exit seat -- you've got Blue Balls.
Namaste children of the world and welcome to another rousing edition of two idiots with microphones, or as you have come to know as, Blue Balls!
Jake and Trey are BACK to actually talking to EACH OTHER for the first time in a month and man did we have some catching up to do. We dive back into the Vieira tribute draw against ATL, the new skipper with a Pep in his step, all things Copa Mundial and a look ahead for this team's assault gestalt in cobalt. Like a red card in the third minute, you've got Blue Balls.
Bienvenue mes gars et mes poussins, we're back for part two this week, a mini-pod of sensible seesaw soliloquies from ya salacious bois. New format for this week, as Jake and Trey go back and forth, expounding on the unworthy in New Jersey, our midfield dilemma, the baby yanks, and what to expect from the dirty south visiting the burning Bronx. This shit will be regular soon, tons of love, and hold those nether regions tight, you've got blue balls.
Howdy Y'(b)all(ers), and welcome to another rousing edition of your favorite Pod Duo. Just kidding, only one pod bro on this part of episode 10. Trey sits down with return guest The Homie Steve to break down last weekend's action. We cover another Kreis humiliation, the return of Jlew, tactics and semantics, and unwisely tread into the P-chant issue. Come one, come all, you've got Blue Balls. (We'll be back later this week with Trey/Jake ya dinks.)
Ahoy all of you Pusha Ts and Teyana Taylors of the world, we are BACK and hope you are enjoying this GOOD Friday! Jake and Trey take the reigns again with an amuse-bouche of details and debaucheries. We cover the rainy romp of the Rapids, World Cup call-ups and international friendlies, strategies galore; everything. Oh, and is there a rumor everyone has been talking about? Hmm, who knows. Dive in, but avoid shrinkage, you've got Blue Balls.
Charmante a rendez-vous, blue ballons! Welcome back to the top of the league as NYCFC reclaim their rightful place as Top Team Not To Fuck With. Trey and Jake recap in the dead of the sudden summer the CRACKERJACK 3-1 victory that brought David Villa his 400th and 401st career goals - and the addition of a brand new word to his English arsenal (no pun intended) - milestone!
THEN: Trey and Jake scramble for talking points and cover a whole slew of bullshit before pivoting into the pre-derby deep dive into the Team from New Jersey - anticipating what will surely be a Dead Reds Revolution if the boys and blue can pull it off. Better find a softer seat on the PATH - you've got Blue Balls.
Cheers and condolences blue ballers. It is with great regret that we commemorate the end to NYCFC's best ever unbeaten streak and best-ever start to the season, ended abruptly, unexpectedly, and brutally by a fiercer-than-anticipated counterpunching Portland machine. Trey and Jake break bread at a diner while they break down the breakdown. Then: international competitions, international politics, and interminable merchandising chatter. And; Dallas. Rock em, sock em, wash em, repeat: you've got Blue Balls.
