Santos coach talks U.S. players


Daniel Guzman didn't participate in a post-match press conference. When I caught up to him in the mixed zone, he was actually being asked about whether or not, with the success of a Mexican-American like Edgar Castillo, he was interested in bringing in more U.S. players. Here's his response. I didn't translate, because the Chivas USA media officer is translating in the background. Just listen carefully.

AC were you holding an Olympus Digital Voice Recorder WS-100? I think we own the same model but for totally different reasons. I love this blog its so down to Earth, raw, and accessible. I really surprise that no other soccer blogs present their content in a similar way.

yeah, that's hers. I've got an olympus too, well, two of them but one is the upgraded version that allows me to put files on a computer. She's got an even newer one.

Thanks for the kind words. We try to be down to earth; i think that's how both of us are naturally so why not extend that over into the blog?

Yeah, we're unrefined not merely as a way of being authentic, but really, because we're not that fancy, either. We try to present content in as many ways as we can. But we're not going for that "amateur look" on purpose. We're just kind of winging it, because we figure the info is important, even if we don't have fancy equipment or the best training with it.

The way you guys give it is perfect. Its not all glossy like others. You give us the actual audio or video which is very different. Its raw but not amatuerish its actually professional but you give the information before it has been processed and redefined. We read articles all the time but to actually hear the audio of the interview is very special because its so real time. I feel like I'm in the locker room or in the mix zone or at practice hearing all the commotion that goes on in the background. Sideline Views is about the extra material that goes into the soccer journalism,your tries at getting the material and the raw stuff that went into the finished product. I wish there was a East Coast NYC or even DC version of you guys.

Well, not completely perfect.

I love the options for audio video, but the untranslated spanish bits are quite inaccessible. (not this post, obviously, but generally speaking)
