Soccer Report Extra Podcast: Episode 64 – Y.P., ‘Wipey’, Leapy?

Written by on March 13, 2012 | 2 Comments »
Posted in Soccer Report Extra Podcast

MLS is back, and with a new season comes a whole host of new names – and pronunciations – to add to your North American soccer lexicon.  Take Young Pyo Lee, for example. The experienced South Korean fullback looked great for Vancouver in his league debut (at home versus Montreal), but TV announcers are making a meal out of his hip new moniker; Y.P.  Sounds too much like ‘Wipey’ to us.  Can we maybe get him to insist on being called Young Pyo from now on?

As well as MLS First Kick review, Bobby & Eoin discuss the two-horse Premier League title race, break-down a couple of really interesting officiating decisions, and even fit in a little relegation battle chat too.

    Hi Bobby, I am with you as far as goal line technology goes. The best policy I can come up with for goal line technology is to give each team one challenge per game for any call of their choosing. Challenge should come immediately after the call is made before play is resumed. If the referee’s original call stands the team which challenged the call will lose their one challenge. If the call is corrected after the review, the challenging team will not be penalized and can still use their challenge. This will shift responsibility slightly towards the coaches to use their one shot wisely.
