D.C. United turned around their week at the end, and Filibuster is here to talk about it. Jason, Adam, and Ben talk about D.C. United’s games against the Philadelphia Union and against Atlanta United, each of which went the opposite of how we thought they would go. We talk about the rotation (or lack thereof), as well as the absolutely excellent recent play of Luciano Acosta and how much Bill Hamid has meant to the team is just his short time back. We also discuss Wayne Rooney, of course, and get into the Paul Arriola experiment at right back.
In the second segment we welcome back our old fiend Raf Noboa y Rivera to talk about NYCFC and their rough patch of form. We talk about their new coach compared to Patrick Vieira and whether or not Father Time has caught up to David Villa. We also break down Anton Tinnerholm’s game, their prospects for staying at Yankee Stadium, and what the best way to gameplan them is. Give it a listen!
With your support, we’ve made two big upgrades! The first is that we are producing chapter marks for the segments now, and those should appear directly in your podcast app (or on SoundCloud, if you listen there). The second is that there are now audio transcriptions of the podcast for those who want or need them! They are available on our Internet Archive page only, so you’ll need to go over there to find them; they’re produced by speech recognition software, so they’re not 100% accurate, but they look readable. These upgrades are only possible because of the support we get on Patreon, so if you appreciate these upgrades, consider pitching in.
