We have a super-sized episode of Filibuster for your Thanksgiving commutes, and that is our gift to you. We start the episode off with Jason’s misery about Maryland in the College Cup. We then dive straight into the news of Jurgen Klinsmann’s firing, which happened mere hours before we sat down to record. We all give our answers as to whether or not he should have been fired, talk about Sunil Gulati’s responsibility in all of this, and talk about the probably hiring of Bruce Arena and ask what will he do with the upcoming Camp Cupcake.

We then move into the second segment with D.C. United news, including the great joy of Luciano Acosta’s re-signing. We then get into Goat or Fox, with Kennedy Igboananike, Jared Jeffrey, Alhaji Kamara, Taylor Kemp, and Chris Korb on the docket for this episode. We also ask how Klinsmann’s firing might affect the national team call-ups of D.C. United players.

Finally, we get into tonight’s MLS Cup playoffs, previewing the all-Canadian Eastern Conference final between Toronto FC and Montreal Impact as well as the Western Conference final between the Seattle Sounders and the Colorado Rapids. Give it a listen!
