    in Sports

    The panel reacts to the beatdown Liverpool took at the hands of the on-fire Gunners. Four fantastic goals against a porous Reds defense.

Is Pelligrini history? We welcome Yan Skwara, Comissioner of the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) and Ony Dozie, General Manager of the L.A. Wolves to the Podcast Cubby. We discuss this up and coming league, their top team's advancement to the United States' version of the FA Cup and the growth of grassroots local football in America - not before before Londoner and Newcastle fan Ony dishes stick to the Arsenal contingent.  We discuss this and much more on this latest edition of the Two Yanks v Brits Soccer Show.

    Managing Madrid Podcast: Previewing Liverpool

    in Soccer

    The guys are back after the international break and are excited to discuss what is fast becoming a strong start to Real Madrid's season. First, they preview the Levante game, looking into Isco's splendid form and trying to figure out who he might replace in the starting lineup--is it Bale? James? Or maybe Modric after some decline? Gabe takes some questions from the audience and they segue into the Liverpool match: should Madrid really be nervous about this side? Or is this just the allure of playing in Anfield that has the guys worried?

    Dissecting Villa's FA Cup win over Liverpool and looking ahead to Manchester Cit

    in Soccer

    Welcome back to the Holtecast: the official podcast of a website that blogs about a team who are now FA Cup finalists! It's practically like having Christian Benteke whispering in your ears if Christian Benteke were white and American. But Jack and Robert are here to talk extensively about the incredible semifinal win over Liverpool. We also delve into the fact that Tim Sherwood now has the best winning percentage of any Aston Villa manager ever. 


    And of course, we have injury news. We say of course because this is Aston Villa and injuries are just a normal part of life. This week it isn't so bad, though! Even baby steps are still steps. In between all of this we've also got answers to your questions on twitter as well as a preview of Saturday's Manchester City match.

    Villa only get brief moment to bask in Spurs win before Liverpool at Wembley

    in Soccer

    Well this is unexpected. We're back for another week of podcasting and Aston Villa... won? They traveled to White Hart Lane and pulled off an unexpected victory. The Great Tim Sherwood Narrative™ was fulfilled and Villa managed to salvage a week that began with a disappointing result against QPR. And oh the things it did for their league standing.


    Now, although relegation safety isn't assured, it seems more likely than ever that Villa will be a part of the Premier League next year. And that means that we can turn our eyes to this weekend's FA Cup semifinal against Liverpool at Wembley. Unfortunately, Villa go in looking like a MASH ward and what once looked like a tough but winnable match now looks like an immense uphill climb.


    We dive into both matches as well as Jack's relegation poaching series, your questions from twitter, and more.

    'Joe Symes & The Loving Kind' From Liverpool To Madame Perry's Salon

    in Entertainment

    The Madame loves music, especially of the Brit-Pop, UK RnR styles! Tonight's show is one you'll definitely want to download from iTunes. I'll be surprised if you aren't already familiar with British band Joe Symes & The Loving Kind. The description below is from their website. The party starts at 7PM EDT at Mme Perry's Salon!


    Joe Symes and The Loving Kind help relive 80's Bowie, Brit-Pop and the solo workings of Sir Paul McCartney. Simplistic yet all the same intensely powerful, Liverpool's acoustic/rock five-piece bring a relaxation to the mind to create a hypnotic trance, fitting in with their own rock-esque image. So far the musicians have had many an experience in the past years, one of the more notable milestones, headlining Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds after show party, proving their musical prowess within the industry

    in Sports

    Chelsea is no longer invincible - the expert panel (some who picked this upset last week) react to the end of the Blues 23 game unbeaten streak. Liverpool plays four big matches in twelve days - how will they fare against a resurgent Manchester United in this classic rivalry next weekend?  Is West Ham United the bandwagon "flavor of the week" replacing Southampton after winning three BPL matches this past week?  After no wins in their first seven games, the up and down Newcastle side is on the upswing after beating Chelsea - are these guys for real - or was it the ball boys' fault?  Sergio Aquero has carried Manchester City FC and is now out for at least a month with a knee injury - can the Citizens prove they are not a "one man show"? Champions League pool play is over - we have the final 16 - who does the panel favor to reign as the best club in the world? The two yanks and Brits debate these and other topics live from the British and Dominion Social Club.
