KYW podcast: The Bobby Convey interview

Philadelphia native and San Jose Earthquakes all-star midfielder Bobby Convey sat in for this week’s KYW podcast with PSP’s Dan Walsh and KYW’s Greg Orlandini. In the interview recorded Wednesday night, Convey discusses:

  • personal differences with his former D.C. United manager, Peter Nowak, that may have prevented Convey from playing for Philadelphia Union;
  • his long comeback from the knee injury that prematurely ended his playing stint with Reading in the English leagues;
  • his excellent form in Major League Soccer this year;
  • the difficulties faced by Philadelphia-area youth soccer players who aren’t from wealthy families;
  • prospects for his return to the U.S. national team, for whom he started in the 2006 World Cup;
  • his desire to one day play for his hometown Union.

Greg and Dan also talk about the Union, major new signings by the Red Bulls, Sounders and others, and the upcoming U.S.-Brazil friendly.

  1. Ed Farnsworth says:

    Another fine podcast guys.
    As a Reading supporter, I really enjoyed hearing Convey talk about his career in England. As a Union supporter, I appreciated his honesty about why he isn’t wearing the Blue and Gold. And as a Philly soccer booster it was informative to hear about his beginnings here. It really seems like he really wants to play in Philly before the end of his career.
    That he gave you so much of your time was wonderful. Keep up the good work guys!

  2. It is hard to believe that after 10 years in professional soccer Convey would take playing in Philly before trying to make a World Cup squad. It sounds to me that he has been so jaded by the U.S. system (Novak or other politics) that it is not worth the aggravation and that is sad.

    Refreshing honesty from him regardless. Nice interview.
