March is here, and we have a new episode of Sounding Off on Soccer on tap!

On Tuesday, the Pittsburgh Riverhounds announced the signing of three players to the roster, Junior Etou, Tony Lopez and Michael DeShields.

Pittsburgh Riverhounds Adds Three New Players in Etou, Lopez and DeShields

In addition, last week, we were very happy to announce the addition of Philadelphia Soccer Now, as our ‘brother’ site to the East, as Matt Ralph and his team of contributors to the previous Brotherly Game (SB Nation sponsored site), have a new home as part of our ‘Now Network’.

Introducing our newest partners to the East: Philadelphia Soccer Now!

In the latest edition of Sounding Off on Soccer, John analyzes the latest signings, then brings Matt Ralph on the podcast to talk about Pennsylvania soccer, as we begin to touch on some topics that make our two sites unique, but also will bring us together.
