LAFC Podcast Wrap: What was the deal with that danged field?!

LAFC PodFam covers Yankee Stadium and much more.

MLS: Los Angeles FC at New York City FC Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Week to week, a theme emerges in most or all of the Los Angeles Football Club-related podcast offerings, and the one this week was very obvious: LAFC folks hate the Yankee Stadium field. For what it’s worth, we had a story on it too, but at the risk of sounding condescending, it should give LAFC Nation a moment of gratitude as we reflect on our team getting a stadium in the opening weeks of our club’s debut season and not have to deal with playing in a venue as tenants and unsuited to the sport.

Soccer Weekly

The week’s lone interview with a player was on Dave Denholm’s ESPN Radio show, where he talked to LAFC defender Walker Zimmerman. They focus on LAFC’s defense (obviously) and Zimmerman talks about the newcomer on the defense in Eddie Segura.

FCFC Podcast

The guys record an episode on location in Brooklyn as they recount the NYCFC away trip. Among the highlights — LAFC owner Bennett Rosenthal was on hand to watch The 3252’s March to the Match and the drawbacks of Sunday games on the road.

Shoulder 2 Shoulder

The guys bring in Gringo Ultra as their guest/future co-host. He talks his journey to soccer, how he got into LAFC, and the ways the community rallied when a special person in his life was in considerable danger.

Inside LAFC

Max and Vince chat about the NYCFC game, how weird the pitch was (this was the week’s theme, by the way) and Max’s stint over the weekend as the fill-in host for MLS’s postgame show in New York. The highlight was probably the talk about people not believing Latif Blessing was truly going to play midfield against NYCFC.

Heart of LAFC

Jerry and Josef do another deep, deep dive into the NYCFC game and preview the Real Salt Lake game this weekend. They’ve got a great voice mail “from the 213” that had to be bleeped about 30 times, which was definitely entertaining.

Season Pass

The reporters, who were all at the NYCFC game, talk about that and preview the RSL encounter.

Defenders of the Banc

Filli and The Scarf talk the NYCFC game and The Scarf’s scarf, where he designed his own scarf that is apparently already a collector’s item. Wow!

They have a second episode this week, too! They preview the RSL game and talk about The Scarf’s scarf unveiling.
