We’ve come to the end of another year, and this one is likely to raise strong emotions, one way or another. And that’s just fine.
Before we move on to 2021, let’s review some of the highlights of a totally unprecedented 2020 on this website, for old time’s sake.
- Mar. 9: Union provide blueprint for stopping LAFC. Well, Philadelphia turned out to be the Supporters’ Shield champ this year and good value for their 3-3 draw against LAFC just before the shutdown, but they really did give a guide to neutralize the juggernaut.
- Mar. 17: Soccer documentaries — what to watch and what to skip. I’ll update this at some point, but this is a non-exhaustive starting point for which soccer docs are worth watching and which aren’t.
- Mar. 18: Cloutier talks during shutdown. Speaking with the Orange County SC head coach in the early days of the shutdown.
- Mar. 20: Bradley talks during shutdown. The LAFC head coach was a great interview while we were waiting for what was next in the year.
- Apr. 3: Catching up with Danny Crisostomo. The Orange County SC midfielder had a great story and spoke with us about his journey.
- Apr. 23: Getting to know Cammy Palmer. Speaking of great stories, Orange County SC’s on-loan midfielder has one of most unconventional backgrounds you’ll hear of.
- July 23: Talking to Angel City FC president Julie Uhrman. It was a momentous year for women’s soccer, with NWSL expansion team Angel City FC announced. Here, I spoke to the club co-owner and president upon the launch.
- Aug. 28: Kaye, Bradley condemn RSL owner. After an extraordinary player strike throughout MLS that included LAFC, Real Salt Lake owner Dell Loy Hansen showed his true colors publicly, and the LAFC men were among those speaking out against Hansen’s laundry list of offenses over the years.
- Oct. 8: Aaron Cervantes talks OCSC, Rangers move. The local teenager discussed his career to date and move to the Scottish giant in an interview.
- Nov. 16: Getting to know Christian Torres. The 16-year-old forward looked good in his rookie campaign and the LAFC player has big goals in his career.
- Dec. 20: Here’s what we know about the Miguel Herrera-Ante Razov scuffle. Obviously LAFC’s run to the Concacaf Champions League final was a blast and nice surprise on the year, but this was the most surreal part of the whole shebang.
Thank you once again for reading this year and your support again in 2020. We’ve got plans to make 2021 the best yet, so let’s do this together!
