D.C. United’s meltdown vs. Philadelphia Union, and previewing Chicago Fire: Filibuster podcast

We can work through this together

Unfortunately, we have to talk about this game. Adam, Jason, and Ben are back to pick up the pieces after D.C. United’s demolition at the hands of the Philadelphia Union. We talk about the disaster and try and figure out what happened to United. We ask if teams can use the blueprint that the Montreal Impact and the Union have used, fouling the crap out of United, to keep beating them. And we have to talk about Philadelphia’s goals, the play of Jared Jeffrey and Marcelo Sarvas, and the play of Bobby Boswell and Kofi Opare. We can get through this together.

When we finally reach the second segment, we bring on Sean Spence of Hot Time in Old Town to talk about the resurgent Chicago Fire. We talk about them spending money on things like Bastian Schweinsteiger, the play of Nemanja Nikolic, and the status of their right backs. Since its the Fire, we also have to ask about their goalkeeper situation, before asking what rotation we might see because of their midweek game. Finally, we ask Sean how he would gameplan against the Fire if he were Ben Olsen. Give it a listen!
