episode eight - steve holroyd (soccer historian)

Steve Holroyd (@soccermavn) is a soccer historian and a part of SASH, the Society for American Soccer History. Recently the Soccer HOF opened in Frisco Texas, which Steve and the rest of SASH attended on its opening weekend, presenting various presentations from some of the members. Steve talked about the NASL college drafts and their general inability to “Americanize” the game, which we reference a few times in the conversation. The paper can be found here.

Listen here for a wonderful discussion on American soccer history, the US Hall of Fame, and SASH.
