We are delayed by a day, but don't worry, Filibuster is back. We start off by talking about the MLS Cup Playoffs and with the New England Revolution vs. New York Red Bulls. We talk about whether or not this series matched our expecations, Tim Cahill replacing Bradley Wright-Phillips, and the tactics of the two teams. We then move into Seattle Sounders vs. LA Galaxy, and wonder how the Sounders lost that series and take a look at the performances overall. We close by talking about MLS Cup and who we think (and hope) will win.

We then talk about the D.C. United stadium plan and the DC Council for a long time, including using such words as "supplemental budget" and "first reading." We try to walk you through what actually happened yesterday and what it means for the team.

We then talk about the MLS Best XI, which features two D.C. United players in Bill Hamid and Bobby Boswell, as well as talking about MLS Coach of the Year Ben Olsen. Finally, we end the show with some Goat or Fox on Jared Jeffrey, Samuel Inkoom, and Eddie Johnson. Give it a listen!
