In the studio this week Drew connects with Ben from Bumpy Pitch and our own Rich Gordon to talk about our collaboration, The Association, a pioneer event of its kind. Major influencers and brands within the soccer community draft teams and play pickup soccer every Thursday night amidst a taco stand and open bar in Los Angeles. The Association is pushing the culture through influential brands and artists in and around the game.

Each week brands take turns with an art instalation of their choosing that best showcases their talents and what they are all about. The guys mull over the process of establishing such an event and the numerous hurdles they battled trying to get it up and running. To check out more about it, visit The Association LA.

They also debate Wayne Rooney signing with DC United and what this could mean for the MLS moving forward. Are they bringing on Rooney in hopes he can spark some excitement back into DC United? Is he thinking MLS is a retirement league?

Listen up as the guys weigh in:


This week Drew, Rich and Alex chatted with founder Lucas Shanks about the vision and inspiration behind his brand, TENS CLUB, born from the culture surrounding the No. 10 in football and in life.

Lucas has opened the organic doors of design, drawing concepts from players who wore the number and expanding beyond that to players Shanks liked, and those who went against the grain. Running with a list of topics and things they want to create, the brand releases one item on the tenth of every month, highlighting the overarching theme they felt passionate about.

Check out what Lucas had to say and the rest of the show below, including the LAFC vs. Galaxy recap and Champions League as it stands today. Be sure to subscribe on iTunes and Soundcloud so you don’t miss a beat.


The Three-Stripes are really knee deep in that warm nostalgia at the moment. A week ago the Predator Mania’s and now we have more retro fire courtesy of the Manchester United 2017/18 away kit. Inspired by the legendary away kits worn by the Red Devils in 92. Yes, that also happened to be the year the Neville brothers, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and David Beckham embarked on their illustrious trophy filled rise as Manchester United’s golden generation.

As for the kits, an all-over maple leaf looking print hearkens back those iconic 90s shirts but with a sleeker, more modern twist. The form-fitting strips are dominated in varying shades of grey while black accents feature by way of the crew-neck collar and sleeve cuffs. White adidas Three-Stripes branding flank each side while the Man United crest is given a the black and white treatment for a final stroke of class.

Last weekend Wayne Rooney scored a stunning,  game tying free kick vs Stoke City to surpass Sir Bobby Charlton as Manchester United’s all-time leading goal scorer. It was his 250th for the Red Devils. Alas, soccer is a a fickle game. Arguably no one more than Wazza has been picked apart by a cannibalistic English media and sure, his play has declined over the past 2-3 years, but what remains undeniable is that he is one of the best to ever put on a United and England shirt.

In case you’ve forgotten here is a list of his accolades:

All-time leading goal scorer for England – 53 goals, All-time leading goal scorer for Manchester United – 250 goals, 5 x EPL Titles, 1 x Champions League Title, 1 x FA Cup Title, 3 x English Cup Titles, 1x Club World Cup Title, 5 x Community Shield Titles.

All of these jaw-dropping accolades were achieved with a pair of Total 90’s or Hypervenoms on his feet. As one of Nike’s longtime poster boys, they honored his career and historic feat with a massive banner, draped over the Hotel Football which stands across from Old Traford. It simply says Rooney, with 250 O’s, one for each of his goals.

Have a look at the banner below and have a look at the limited edition Hypervenom’s that paid further homage to Wayne’s record-breaking goal HERE
