The third episode of the New York City Football Podcast is in the books, and with it, our first-ever guest: none other than the legendary New York soccer journalist Dave Martinez, founder and former Editor-in-Chief of Empire of Soccer! We get to hear Dave’s thoughts regarding the differences with MLS in its bad old days compared to now, how he sees NYCFC’s impact and progress in MLS, the club’s on-going stadium efforts, lack of transparency with the media, the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and other aging DP signings, Patrick Vieira, Rodney Wallace and so much more! Nick and Jordan also discuss the big draw that felt like a win in New England, Shradi’s hot start, Berget’s debut, Ofori’s big test filling Ring’s shoes, contemplate what’s going on with Jonathan Lewis, and a lot more!
