Yanks Abroad Podcast #4 3/11/12

In the fourth episode of the Yanks Abroad Podcast, the panel is comprised of regulars Brian Sciaretta, Jamie Hill, John Kretlow, Mathew Wagner, and moderated by Christopher McCollum. New to the show is veteran YA writer and editor David Smith, based out of Germany.

The topics of discussion for this episode is a usual array of recaps of the Europa League, England, Germany, Italy, and Mexico. Attention is paid to Herculez Gomez and his goal scoring streak, Michael Bradley’s adoring fans at Chievo, and Tim Ream’s assist against QPR.

A question is taken from a listener about the future of Clint Dempsey, there’s speculation on Brad Guzan’s future, and a particular loyal listener wonders if all National Team center backs would need to be replaced if Tim Howard wasn’t so good.

Also on the table is the countdown to Olympic Qualifiers, as discussion and speculation of the forthcoming roster for Nashville is made. Is Teal Bunbury out? Josh Gatt has been released to play in the tournament, but for how long?

Episode length is longer than usual, at 1:15.
