The latest episode of The SBI Podcast is here and this week we dive into both the U.S. Men’s National Team and Major League Soccer, with some interviews from some of the bigger names on the scene.
Our special guest this week is American midfielder Brek Shea, who joins us from England. The Stoke City winger discusses his recent transfer move, recovering from surgery, his Sky Sports car interview experience and his chances of making a return to the U.S. national team.
Co-host Garrett Cleverly and I also discuss MLS topics and share some interviews with New York Red Bulls star Thierry Henry and Chivas USA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, as they discuss two of the hotter topics in recent weeks. Henry discusses the hiring of Red Bulls head coach Mike Petke, while Kennedy talks about the changes taking place at Chivas USA.
We cover a wide range of subjects in Episode 8 so be sure to give the a listen, either via iTunes, Stitcher or right here on SBI.
Enjoy the show (Episode 8 of The SBI Podcast is after the jump):

What do you think of the latest episode of The SBI Podcast? Excited to see Shea get on the field for Stoke City? Do you agree that Stuart Holden could play his way into the mix for March qualifiers? What do you make of the situation with Chivas USA?

Not sure about Break’s haircut, but I loved this podcast. Keep er up
We could probably give Edu a run at right fullback.
Man, Ives. You gave it your all. Some great questions, but even you couldn’t drag the personality out of Brek. You gave him every opportunity But he just never opened up. You’d think by looking at Brek that he’d have a lot to say, but from every interview I’ve ever heard with him, it seems like the guy is just dull as dishwater.
Love the podcasts, but this one is way too long. Much prefer it if you can keep them 60 minutes or less.
I disagree. Love the long eps
“nice” in response to everything Shea said started making me laugh. great episode though!
obviously his answers were nice
This may be a dumb question. Is there anywhere I can download this podcast? I listen from my droid, and if I play it from the browser I have to leave the screen on, which kills my battery. All the other podcasts I listen to have a download option, but I can’t seem to find one here. Am I just missing it?
You can download it from Souncloud. Or Subscribe on iTunes.
just subscribe to the feed (link above) then you can listen to it through your reader. I use the Google Reader app.
fantastic podcast. if we’re gonna hope, here’s my hopeful lineup based on this week:
possible subs: Beasely for Gatt, Zusi for Shea, Jones for Holden, Gonzalez for Cameron
Swap Shea and Gatt then swap Chandler and Johnson.
Great podcast Ives! I’ll have to tune into these more. It’s good to hear quality interviews and insight concerning USMNT and American soccer. Keep up the solid work! Cheers!
Love these podcasts. Thanks Ives. I do have a question. Does anyone else notice how often players say the word “obviously” in interviews? It starts off almost every sentence. Someone should look into this.
Has much to do with how often they are asked to respond questions with obvious answers.
“ICEBERRRRRG!” Love to see anytime Primo and Jigga get together.
Word, they are more than due for another collaboration.
Do you guys have an RSS feed for this yet?!
This link should work as an RSS feed.
Seriously. An RSS for the podcast would be great.
Soonerfan’s link work fine. I use Google Reader.
another real quality ep.
like the music being the same at start and finish, it gives it a better bookend feel.
Actually seems like a very poor podcast. Run-on, rambling questioning really makes it hard to enjoy. No rhythm built whatsoever. Might be worth taking more time to prep on SBI’s part. Hope they get better.
I literally could not disagree with you more.
Literally or figuratively?
O/T but when do you guys figure the first $20million dollar transfer will occur in MLS?
Hard to predict. Could be 3 years could be 10 or 15 years. Its more likely a 20 million transfer will be paid for an American that is in Europe or goes to Europe first.
When inflation goes up to that point.Truth be told if a MLS player is good enough for a 20mil transfer versus say a south American who is just as good.He would go for way less then his true international market value.
