This week on KTTP Radio Drew and Anthony discuss movement at Arsenal including Arsene Wegner stepping down and their proverbial implosion against Atletico Madrid. He then previews Champions League going forward including a Liverpool and Roma recap and Liverpool on a roll.

Rich and Drew share the highlights from LAFC’s home opener at Banc of California Stadium against the Seattle Sounders. LAFC won the match 1-0 but the best part was the fandom and the culture beforehand. Take a listen here:


The year is coming to an end and this is our last show for 2017. It’ been an incredibly busy, wild and entertaining year. Anthony and Andrew get into their top moments of 2017 as well as the biggest L’s of the year. They rank their favorite drops of the year and they also review Manchester City essentially winning the league so early.

“Being in Cardiff, watching my team win the most prestigious title in world soccer, It’s literally one of the greatest moments in my life” – Andrew on his top soccer moment of 2017

” When these came it they just brought right back to my childhood. That era of soccer was so iconic to me and I’ll never forget it.” -Anthony on the re release of the adidas Predator Precision.


It was inevitable but bitter sweet. The end of the Calderon marked a paradox for a club that built an identity around unrelenting heart with pain and suffering. Atleti’s recent success has brought about the need for bigger, more lofty goals. Forever in the shadow of the big two in Spain, Atleti now seeks to dwell in that pantheon with Barça and their cross town rivals Real Madrid. A massive sign of said endeavor is the newly expanded Wanda Metropolitano. Originally built for an unsuccessful Olympics bid, Atletico Madrid bought the stadium and expanded it to seat 67,000 people which set the club back a cool 240 million Euro. On a crisp and crystal clear Madrid day we set out to tour Atleti’s new symbol hope.

It’s always a humbling, slightly chilling experience touring stadiums. Historic grounds like Old Trafford or the Bernabeu behold a  grandeur and energy that very much parallel famous cathedrals.  The Wanda isn’t that. But that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Yes, every seat is padded and covered from elements thanks to a gorgeous, technologically advanced roof. The locker room is luxurious and modern while the 79 VIP suites add to the upper echelon vibes of the Wanda. With all it’s bells and whistles as it stands today there are still obvious signs of the stadium being under construction. Restrooms are incredibly awkward, with missing tiles and poorly placed doors. Certain sectors are still closed with steel piping strewn across the floor as construction crews hammer/weld away even during a national holiday.

The Wanda Metropolitano is a stunning, slightly unfinished piece of endeavor, hope and decadence for a club that is deserving of such shine. Have a look at her, up close and personal.




Today the guys get back on track after the holidays with the Spurs v Arsenal match, they get into Messi’s tussle with a linesman and of course, the brand new adidas Predator release.

“Honestly these were a bit underwhelming, as far looks go. But I’ve yet to try them on and one thing that is universal with every Predator model is the fit is second to none. ” – Anthony on the new adidas Predator

“Barcelona finally dropped points on a sketchy disallowed goal. Messi got into it with a linesman an the official didn’t back down. Always funny to see Barca fans complain about these things.” – A very happy Andrew on Barcelona’s troubles vs Valencia
