140 Characters: USA Soccer Guy

Most Popular

Are you enjoying the Premier League season so far?
Sure. It's a great to see so many franchises in the hunt for the World Championship this year and the quality of some of the soccer kicks that have been done have been pretty special.

Who do you think will win the title?
It's a pretty tough call.  I expect the World Championship to be close, but I am surprised that with Jozy Altidore's obvious soccerbility that his franchise have not been up there. Who knows, it could well be the blue uniformed Manchester City Franchise Club or Chelsea Franchise Club, and the Soccer Cannons have been going pretty good under Coach Arsenal Wenger.

What do you make of situation with Moyes at Man United?
It seems like a whole bunch of stuff has just not worked out for the Unity. They had a few players getting hurt.  RSVP was their MVP this year but has hardly kicked any soccerballs so far thus year, and Dwayne Rooney's been out too. I guess you could say that the luck of the Irish has deserted Coach Moyles, right? Some of the blame's gotta rest at the cleats of the soccer players themselves though. This was the winningest franchise in the entire EPL League last year!

Are you happy to see Mourinho back in the Premier League?
Mourinho is a great soccer coach. He was world famous all over Portugal before he went to the England the first time, and since then he's won a load more soccer cups. It's great to see him back and he really is the Special Juan.

Who is your player of the season so far?
The EPL MVP so far is a tough call. Since Dempsey left last year, I guess a lot of English guys would have been pretty worried that the quality of soccer play would slide a bit, but the likes of Swearez, Agwearo and Geoff Cameron have really given everyone something to smile about. 

Is football getting bigger in the US?
Football has always been big in the US, and it's great to see soccer becoming so big there too. I think that Americans are pretty proud that we were the country that really popularized the sport with the World Soccer Cup.

Who is your favourite team?
It's impossible to select a franchise that I am a fan of. I am a fan of soccer, and as a respected soccer expert now it would not be professional of me to have a franchise I liked the most.

Which Premier League club has the best supporters?
I think it's great that the fans of Full Ham get to go watch a soccer match inside an old cottage. There's something very English about that, and it's kind of cute.

You've had an interesting year, what is next for you?
I'm having a blast right now. I just wanna enjoy the climax of the EPL soccer year, but I'm also working on a couple of other things. It won't be a major surprise to learn that the inevitable book deal is on the way, and I'm also gonna be spending some time in the studio working on a new World Soccer Cup song – I was pretty mad when I found out Seth Blatter had asked Pitt Bull, so I thought I'd do my own and make it way better.
