And what better way to kick of the new year than with the latest episode of the AFTN Soccer Show?!

Plus we hear from FC Cincinnati head coach Alan Koch after last month's expansion draft, as he prepares for his side's first season in MLS, and we chat with Colorado Rapids Scottish winger Sam Nicholson about life in MLS so far, and what tempted him to leave the Scottish Premier League for the US at such an early stage of his career.
