    I enjoy it, though I don't appreciate being compared to a Scientologist.

    I listened to it a lot when it was Nick and Steve. I'm still subscribed but I haven't listened to it in ages. The last soccer podcast I listened to was when Steve Nicol was on "Around the League in 90 minutes" a few weeks ago.

    Listen to the show almost daily. Howard is OK, but I miss Nick (Gerber). For the record, I really dislike Nick Webster's voice.

    Raising hand.

    I listen everyday.

    I do not agree with them on alot things but it is fun to listen and feel that soccer is a big deal. Its like going to a Pixies show, you feel all of the sudden that your not alone.

    Unfortunately I'm never home when it's on unless I have the day off. I wish it streamed online or they repeated it in the evening. But listen to it when I can though.

    I like Howard better than Nick. Or maybe it's not Nick so much as that Nick and Steven were always talking over each other and it was as annoying as heck. At least Howard and Nick let the other finish their sentences.

    I listen almost everyday...

    Being a Liverpool supporter, I miss Nick as well...Howard's ok I guess.


    Nick Webster is "shocking" on the tv show..

    the thing on FSC is worse than the radio show, I listen once and a great while...whenever I feel like listening to condescending British people shit all over MLS and the US, while they live in CA

    If you HATE Ex-pats sh!tting on MLS and talking down to you.... then please please listen to WORLD SOCCER WRAP on i-tunes.....
    We started this podcast 8 months ago because we absolutely hated the fact that a bunch of Eurosnobs can PRETEND to be experts on soccer in America just because they have accents....meanwhile all they do is make fun of it...and anyone with an American accent...who loves soccer

    Give us a listen and tell us what you think...Its a weekly show...we dont have sponsors so...the only people we answer to are our listeners...so we talk about world soccer (mostly MLS) and whatever you want to talk about... We dont talk down to our listeners and we make sure its all fun.

    Not as much as they used to. Most of their MLS talk centers on the Galaxy and Chivas, but mainly the Galaxy. Not much mention of the Dynamo which is leading the table in the west despite not having a DP player, which is sweet.

    Hey what about the Revs, they are leading the league without a DP ;).

    I used to listen to the show constantly, but never really got into it, maybe ill pick it up.

    I have it on satellite and the podcast. It is a time vacuum, but I continue listening. Nick Geber was better than Howard, but they are mildly entertaining for a soccer fanatic.

    Unless you grew up in England, served on the US Army, and have podcasted extensively, you have no right to criticize the show.;)

    I used to be into it until Steve turned into the show's elder statesman. He has too much AADHD for that role. I now get my EPL fix with football365's podball because it's much shorter.

    So if anyone wants to get Garrett going, all you have to say is two words: Sunil Gulati :p. And who cares about the Galaxy and Klinnsman? When are we getting Ronaldinho?!

    Why did they boot Nick Gerber off the show?

    He works the poker scene and is a consultant with Harrah's. He was missing too many shows, so he left on his own accord.

    I miss Nick. Howard's fine and all, but the tension between Nick and Steven made for compelling listening. Especially when Steven would start going off about Liverpool. I don't like the shows with just Kenny and Howard, mainly because there's only so much accent parsing my brain can take in one day.

    I like Howard and love it when he goes on a rant. My problem with Howard is his complete negativity towards MLS. This is not being too sensitive it just gets old when every comment is diparaging.

    Nick still owns half of the company along with Steven. As mentioned before his involvement in the poker scene keeps him on the road. He still plays his Günther role which always makes me laugh my ass off. If you listen closely, sometimes during the broadcats, you can hear Nick in the background making remarks. He's still around and heavily involved, just isn't on the air.
