Seattle Soccer Show gets its own forum...right here!

The new "Seattle Soccer Show" now has its own forum area in the GOALSeattle.com forums (www.SeattleSoccerTalk.com).

"Being offered our own topic on Seattle's most popular soccer message board as a way to promote the Seattle Soccer Show is an honor and an awesome step to us becoming a significant part of the Seattle Soccer Community," said Mati Bishop, co-host of the weekly Seattle Soccer Show hosted on-demand and online by 950KJR.com.

Bishop, who also is the color commentator for the Seattle Sounders, and his co-host Matt Gaschk, who covers the Sounders for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and produces Mitch in the Morning at 950 KJR, are just four episodes into their new venture, but have all ready received praise from Seattle's soccer die hards.

"The response that we've gotten from nearly everyone we've spoken to about the show has been really positive," said Bishop. "Soccer fans who have listened to the show have approached me to thank me for doing this and prominent members of the soccer community who I have approached about being guests on the show have been really excited about coming in and talking soccer with us for an hour."

The show has managed to generate and address just a bit of controversy in its short existence too.

"Apparently Darren Sawatzky (Director of the Sounders FC Youth Development Program) got some fallout from the youth soccer community when he outlined the designs for the Sounders FC youth development program on the show," Bishop said. "The way that I see it, our job is not just to talk about soccer, but also to get other people talking more soccer as well. If there is a little controversy from time to time, that's good for the show and good for the soccer community."

New episodes of the Seattle Soccer Show are available every Friday for free, on-demand, download. Links to new episodes as well as daily news and features from the world of Seattle soccer can be found at SeattleSoccerShow.com.
