It is the day after Election Day, so I hope your cups are full of coffee and that you are ready to muddle through the day. There isn’t too much D.C. United news in this week leading up to MLS Cup, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things to talk about. To the links!
After waiving nine players earlier in the week, the Washington Spirit made their first acquisition towards 2020, bringing in a former US U-17 and U-20 midfielder.
MLS Cup is this Sunday, and we brought a Seattle fan and a Toronto fan onto the podcast to tell us why we should temporarily cheer for one of their teams.
I mean, I agree. Just because a Canadian team wins doesn’t mean the CCL spot should go to the next American team in a byzantine priority system; let this spot float between the confederations.
Torrent was apparently frustrated by all of MLS’s....MLS, aka the rules, the travel, player acquisitions, etc. I can’t see him staying in the league if that was his issue, so I wonder if City Football Group will find a place for him somewhere else in the organization.
We have started our traditional season review series on the backline, eschewing the alphabetical system. Go vote!
I wonder if Dax will trade his snark at D.C. United for snark at Chicago now....
That’s a pretty good save.
