The Filibuster crew are back and rounding into playoff form, getting ready for D.C. United's run towards MLS Cup. We start by talking about the 1-1 draw against the Montreal Impact, including talking about Marco di Vaio's last goal in Major League Soccer, Eddie Johnson's great hold up play, and Nick DeLeon's play from the wing. We then talk about United's wing play more generally, Chris Rolfe vs. Chris Pontius in particular, Chris Korb vs. Taylor Kemp, and Luis Silva vs. Eddie Johnson.
We then move onto the playoffs more generally, talk about how D.C. United still isn't getting any respect from the soccer media writ large, talk about the Columbus-New England game as well as the first round knockout game. We also talk about the contraction of Chivas USA, the league's expansion plans, and a mysterious "Central Division" that popped up on the MLS website today.
Finally, we open up the Twitterbox to talk about the most important player that we would leave exposed in the upcoming expansion draft and talk about the possibility of United selling Bill Hamid this offseason. It's a jam-packed episode, so give it a listen!
