Good aftenoon everybody. Though late Friday afternoons are not usually when we have SBI Live Q&A
sessions, it has been so long since we've had one that this seemed as good a time as any to get
back in the swing of things.
If you are powering through your final hour at work on the East Coast, or just preparing for
your afternoon on the West Coast, feel free to join me as we talk all things soccer.
It's that time again. Time for us to discuss all things soccer in the latest SBI Live Q&A.
Join me at 1pm today as I field questions from SBI readers on everything under the soccer sun.
Want to talk MLS? USMNT? Europe? Or maybe you want some non-soccer questions, perhaps about music
or movies or other pop culture topics?
It's that time again everybody. Time to talk all things soccer in the latest installment of the
SBI Live Q&A.
We haven't had one of these in a while but I'm hoping we can cover a bunch of topics in today's
Q&A. Whether it's MLS, the U.S. national team, European soccer or even some pop culture topics, get
your questions ready and I will answer as many of them as I can.
It's that time again folks. Time for us to discuss all things soccer in the latest SBI Live
I'll be holding a Live Q&A starting at 3pm today, where I'll be talking about everything from
MLS to the U.S. men's national team's upcoming friendlies, to any other soccer (and pop culture)
topics you want to get to.
Apologies for the delay, but now that we're up and running, let's get started with the newest
edition of SBI Live Q&A. If you have some soccer questions (or pop culture questions), feel free to
send them my way.
It's that time again. Time for us to discuss all things soccer in the latest SBI Live Q&A, set
for 1pm today.
Want to talk about the recent U.S. men's national team friendlies? Want to talk MLS? Curious
about the international soccer scene? We can talk about all of that, as well as any other soccer
(and pop culture) topics you'd like to touch on today.
Good afternoon folks. While Live Q&As have become the standard on SBI in recent months I am also
aware that not everybody can make it to our Live Q&A sessions so every once in a while I will bring
back the old school SBI Q&A format.
Send in your soccer (and pop culture) questions and I will answer them in the coming weeks in a
series of posts.
It's almost that time again. Time for us to discuss all things soccer in the latest SBI Live
Today, at 1pm, we will discuss all things soccer (and pop culture). Want to talk World Cup bids?
The MLS off-season? The NCAA Tournament? New TV shows? Best new albums? We'll be discussing it all
during Wednesday's Q&A.
- Jason Davis It's that time again, time for Jared and I to talk about random pop culture questions
like "What's more 90's"...I mean cover the week that was in American soccer. We start out this week
hitting on Jared's day at the World Football Challenge (ahem - meaningless friendly - ahem) and the
carry over effect on WPS from the USWNT run and thoughts about soccer owning summer.

- Jason Davis Another American Soccer Show, another 80's movie reference. This is what we do. As
usual, we complement our pop culture inanity with some quality soccer coverage. Since we've avoided
bringing up "Mannequin" to this point in the show's history, it looks like we're doing okay. Jared
and I start out talking about the Karate Kid and an impromptu "wax on, wax off" dance the Rodius
does during the open.
How do you define who is, and isn't, a great? A legend? Or is that the same thing (it isn't,
apparently)? Gary Neville isn't a great, we know this. Is he a Manchester United great? Â No or at
least I don't think he is.
Instead, he was just a good player, the no-frills type, but unlike the airlines the term is
connoted with, Neville was reliable and consistent; a so-called 'team player' who is correctly
renowned today as theÂ English right-back of his generation.
Soccer-Science seeks to bring a scientific focus to the game we love. I apologize for the
nerdiness, but such is my fascination with the field. Stick with me through the stuff you may have
slept through in school, and please don't come after me like Ogre from Revenge of the Nerds.
There will most certainly be some entertainment in the process.
Move over The Wanted, One Direction and, erm, The Osmonds. There's a new boyband in town. Sort of.
Lionel Messi, Didier Drogba, Fernando Torres, Frank Lampard, Jack Wilshere and Sergio Aguero have
joined forces with DJ Calvin Harris for a fusion of football and music as part of a new Pepsi MAX
Maddy's Note:Â Baby step number 2 towards making this a regular feature on
BigFourZa. Spot Kick is back taking a look back at the weekend's events. What the heck is it with
NLDs and long range screamers? Danny Rose, Tom Huddlestone and now Kyle Walker. Being a gooner is
The 10-year anniversary of 9/11 gives all Americans a time to pause and reflect on life's meaning,
individual goals, the role of our country and the meaning of family. Coincidentally, it lands on a
Sunday, always a big deal in the sports world.
When 9/11 happened, sports became a symbol for the recovery of the country to normalcy.
"No more half measures, Walter." -- Mike "the Cleaner", "Breaking Bad."Is "Breaking Bad" the
television equivalent of the Spanish National Team?Does that mean Walter White is the erstwhile
Xavi of the idiot box?More importantly, is this another strained pop-culture crossover analogy by
your humble author to start off a post about something completely different?
Honestly, I barely understand who Justin Bieber is - as in I know he's a male kid who is a Tiger
Beat genre phenom somehow, maybe singing. That's about it. He's simply not in my personal pop
culture bubble. I never even was sure what he looked like until he was on The Daily Show.However, I
could not be more struck by what the little dude wears to play pick-up soccer in Madrid.
The Gaffer and I stay in constant communication throughout most weeks in hopes we can continue
to develop relevant ideas into entertaining original content for EPL Talk. Some weeks are
chock-full of story ideas because of the dramatic nature of the Premier League which makes our job
