Center Line Soccer Radio: Episode 21

Another tough week for the San Jose Earthquakes, but haven’t we said that every week in which they’ve played on the road? The CLS Radio roundtable returns to call out some poor refereeing in Dallas and some poor creativity in the CCL, as the Quakes get Toledo’ed in Texas and walloped in Guatemala City (can we agree, enough with the alliteration?). At least there is some good news to talk about on the roundtable as our own Lyndsay Radnedge celebrates her birthday live on the show. Sure, Robert Jonas and Joe Nuxoll forgot to bring presents, but they did combine for a rousing rendition of that sappy serenade “Happy Birthday!” Oh, and the trio also continued their discussion on the Ultras — LA bound! — the budding Steven Lenhart and Alan Gordon bromance, and last but not least, the California Clasico against the Galaxy.

Center Line Soccer Radio: Episode 20

More home cooking for San Jose this week, as a lone Chris Wondolowski goal — from an offside position, or maybe not — earned the Earthquakes their fifth straight MLS victory in the Bay Area. The 1-0 clean sheet victory over Sporting Kansas City also marked the 100th career win for goalkeeper Jon Busch, and he was feted with the game ball after the match in a raucous locker room celebration. Onward and upward toward the postseason for the Quakes? Let the CLS Radio trio of Robert Jonas, Joe Nuxoll, and Lyndsay Radnedge share their thoughts on the roundtable, episode 20. In addition, a three game road trip — two MLS matches and one CCL group stage game — will provide a stern test of the team’s playoff bona fides. And finally, the roundtable revisits the ongoing sanctions that the Earthquakes front office imposed on the 1906 Ultras. This story is far from over, but maybe a solution can be expedited if both sides can once again learn to trust each other. Want to give your take on the show?

Center Line Soccer Radio: Episode 19

Beating the Seattle Sounders 1-0 back on July 13 gave the San Jose Earthquakes only their second clean sheet of the season. Topping the Portland Timbers two weeks later gave the Quakes consecutive victories for the first time all season. Thoroughly dominating Chivas USA last Saturday pushed San Jose’s winning streak to three games. In less than a month’s time, the Earthquakes have gone from also-ran in the Western Conference to a mere 8 points beyond leaders Real Salt Lake, and the defending Supporters’ Shield winners are talking about making a serious run at the playoffs. Good times! Robert Jonas, Joe Nuxoll, Lisa Erickson, and Lyndsay Radnedge are at the ready to lead you on a lengthy journey of Quakes news and views on Episode 19 of the CLS Radio roundtable. Plenty of discussion about the action on the field as well as a comprehensive report on the 1906 Ultras imbroglio off it. Want to give your take on the show?
