Free Culture Sports Show (FCSS) – Season 3 – Keep Calm and Win the Playoff

We also thought about “First World Problems” and “¯\_(ツ)_/¯” as show titles. We’re trying not to feed into the gloom and doom that is likely to spread across soccer-nation after the US goes down 2-1 to Jamaica. Life goes on. In fact, US soccer goes on. If you believe in staying calm, check out http://www.patreon.com/fcss. How was the coaching clinic (Convention)? How was the...

UCL Qualification Preview: MFF v Žalgiris Vilnius

If you are like me, the name FC Žalgiris (or Vilniaus futbolo klubas Žalgiris as they are known in their native tongue) is vaguely familiar, but you couldn’t place them on a map.

Doug’s July 2015 FIFA 14 check-in

FCSS: 2015 Women’s World Cup + UEFA CL Review

June 13 – Champions League Final Review / Women’s World Cup Doug: First, I got to see some of Norway demolishing Thailand. It’s interesting that the southeast Asian countries are good in the women’s game. Is it because the Islamic world doesn’t do women’s sports in full or because size doesn’t matter as much in women’s? Japan are, after all, reigning world champs. Vietnam...
