Davies Rescues DC, La Barra Brava Get Loud // Apr 10 2011

April 11, 2011 TSS One Comment

Half of the Total Soccer Show was at RFK Stadium Saturday night to see DC United draw 1-1 with LA Galaxy, thanks to a 90th minute spot kick both won and scored by Charlie Davies.

We have post-game audio from the DC United locker room, where Taylor spoke to Davies about the penalty kick (dive or no dive?) the goal celebration (it was “Weekend at Bernie’s”) and whether Davies should start for DC (Davies says yes, Albert disagrees). Taylor also asked Josh Wolff about getting scissor-tackled by David Beckham and Santino Quaranta about squaring up to the world’s most famous footballer.

While Taylor was hob-nobbing with players, Daryl was down in the lower bowl enjoying temporary membership of La Barra Brava, DC’s noisiest supporter group. He got interviews with a couple of Barra members, audio from the game and from the legendary half-time drum circle, and a lesson in when to bounce and when not to bounce.

Later in the show we discuss Team TSS‘s 7-0 win over CAPS FC in the CVSA, where Josh did a Charlie Davies, winning and scoring a penalty, and Albert helped himself to a hat-trick.

Last but never least, we close with a slightly modified version of the Wikipedia Game, with thanks to Bill Healy for the suggested change. Click play above to listen, or follow the link below. Better yet, be one of the cool kids and subscribe via iTunes:

    I think Greg Louganis there should hang his head in shame.
    It was a simulation and the puke deserves to be suspended.

    How long do you think it would take players to get the message if the league could review games and give out retroactive 3game suspensions for simulations?
    Im willing to take the chance that some poor innocent shmuck might get wrongly accussed. But as italy and UK has shown, it takes courage to follow through past the one token attempt.

    You can try to justify it all you want.
    “I did a step over and was able to get by him, but he put his hands on me and I was able to get a penalty.”
    he didnt straight arm him, he put his hands on Ms Davies and he was ‘able’ to get a PK out of it.
    Cheating puke.
