Colin Jose Interview


It is our great honor to be afforded the opportunity to speak with the top historian of the game in N. America, the one and only Colin Jose on the MLS Talk Podcast. The interview will take place tomorrow and will cover the following subjects.

– Canadian Football “Soccer” from the late 1800s to World War II

– The American Soccer League’s Golden Years 1919-1933

– The NASL

– The US in the 1930, 34 and 50 World Cups.

Any questions pertinent to these topics please leave in the comments section. Additionally, Brian Zygo and myself will be doing a show on the ASL, which will be released in the next few weeks.

  1. How has the American playing “style” evolved over time? Was there a time when the U.S. national team played more like other national teams? When did the U.S. national team take a turn and start to play it’s own, unique “style”?

  2. Do you think it is hard for some Americans; who are used to having the best American sports leagues in the world in their own backyard, to accept the fact that they have to look elsewhere (i.e Europe) for higher quality soccer? If so, do you think the MLS should promote itself as a feeder league until the league has time to grow so they can support a better quality of play?

    Finally, who was the best American player that the new generation of USMNT fans (i.e me as the ’06 WC got me hooked) wouldn’t know of without some serious research?

    1. Will ask it, but I am sure he will say Billy Gonsalves who is considered by some historians as one of the best players in the world in the era between 1925 and 1950.
