It’s Called Football: January 27, 2010

This episode gets a bit meandering and silly (just the way I like it!) but there’s still plenty of legit discussion to be had. To wit: Adrian Serioux has no contract, while Jim Brennan has apparently been re-upped; what does this mean for the future of Toronto FC’s backline? And what does the departure of several high-profile stars mean for MLS’s marketability — is Freddie Ljungberg the new face of the league?

And how is it that the Atlanta Beat of Women’s Professional Soccer have a nice new soccer-specific stadium, while several MLS teams still languish without one? (The latter question somehow dovetails into a debate about the usefulness of social media in building soccer in North America.)

Plus, we talk to Chivas USA and Canadian men’s team defender Ante Jazic about the national team’s prospects, Preki as a coach, the ongoing CBA negotiations… and donairs. Mmmm.
