Filibuster podcast episode 171: MLS Preview with Matthew Doyle

We bring in the Armchair Analyst to talk all things MLS

A Filibuster on a Friday? With so much midweek action, we just had to move the podcast so that we could talk about it (and talk we do). After urging to support Adam shaving off his luscious locks and and bet about college basketball, we get into D.C. United and the Concacaf Champions League. We talk about our feelings about the result, the central midfield pairing of Nick DeLeon and Marcelo Sarvas, and how the team can recover. We also get into Steve Birnbaum and his offensive prowess, Luciano Acosta's competitive debut, and some of the newcomers in the aforementioned Sarvas as well as Patrick Nyarko.

We then welcome on's Armchair Analyst, Matthew Doyle, to preview the rest of the league. We talk about the teams that have had the worst and best offseasons, look at the state of three of the league's top teams: LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls, and FC Dallas. We ask if Orlando City is actually better now that they've added Antonio Nocerino and if the New England Revolution are better without Jermaine Jones. We end by asking Matthew to give some MLS superlatives before getting in a question about Thomas McNamara. Give it a listen!
