Filibuster podcast episode 183: Talon is an eagle and should fly

We're happy after a win over the MetroStars

Filibuster Logo

With a win in this year's Atlantic Cup already notched, the Filibuster crew is here to talk about it. Adam, Ben, and Jason are here to talk about whether D.C. United's game against the New York Red Bulls was the most complete performance of the year. We talk about the contrasting styles of the Red Bulls' tactics versus D.C. United's tactics, the out of character game by referee Silviu Petrescu, and we compare the difference between this year's central midfield (Marcelo Sarvas and Nick DeLeon) versus last year's central midfield (Davy Arnaud and Perry Kitchen). Finally, we talk about whether Fabian Espindola should replace Alvaro Saborio, and thank Jesse Marsch for leaving Lloyd Sam on the bench.

We then welcome on Eugene Rupinski from Brotherly Game to talk about United's Friday matchup against the Philadelphia Union. We have to start by asking about Chris Pontius, before marvelling that the Union are good so far this year. We ask Eugene what the biggest thing is that is working for the team right, and ask him to shed some light on their defensive rookies, Keegan Rosenberry and Josh Yaro. We address the Union's central midfield, the selection of players Earnie Stewart has created, and how Bethlehem Steel is working. And, before we say goodbye to Eugene and ask him to gameplan the Union, we had to ask him about Zlatan. Give it a listen!
