Post Match Rant: Milwaukee Torrent 10/26/19
In tonight's PMR, we review the 2-0 win for Chattanooga FC over the Milwaukee Torrent. It was a good (yet very wet) night for the blues. Team Captain Juan Hernandez made sure that CFC finished the #MembersCup in style with a brace in the second half to secure the win. This is the last match of 2019, so it's the last Post Match Rant for a little while. Thanks so much to all of you for listening; it's been a real pleasure to do these for you. Enjoy!

Episode 14: The One that Could be 13, but Isn't.
In this week's episode, we talk ... a lot. We should have had an interview to share with you, but the Gooner can't keep track of audio files on his computer. So instead, you have to listen to us talk about the last couple of matches, some news from around the world of US Soccer, and discuss a cool visitor who attended the Chattanooga FC match against Stumptown. We hope you enjoy it and, as always, thanks for listening.
