Filibuster podcast episode 79: 20 minutes of slo-motion smashing

On tap: Planter's punch, Flying Dog's The Truth, Juan Collins, Corona, clean crisp water

The team from Filibuster is back, once again, and is committed to starting and ending the podcast well, even if the same could not be said for D.C. United. We start with those first minute and last minute goals, and what they say about United's amount of focus (or lack thereof). We then get into specifics, such as the awful play of Bobby Boswell and Jeff Parke, as well as the 81 half-decent minutes that were between the first goal and the scramble that was the last 10 minutes. Finally, we talk about D.C. United's goals and the perforamnces of Conor Doyle, Chris Korb, and Luis Silva.

In the second segment, we bring on our very own Cynthia Hobgood to talk all things Washington Spirit. We talk about the new look Spirit, going over some of the players this season and some of the returning players from last year's team. We  then go into their style of play and the season so far, talk about the quandary that is allocated players, and engage in some wishful thinking for an eventual D.C. United-Washington Spirit partnership. We end the segment by talking about the central midfielders, particularly Crystal Dunn, Yael Averbuch, and Diana Matheson; the defensive play of the team so far this season, and some possible new acquisitions for the team this summer.

Finally, we bring on William Murphy to talk about the Philadelphia Union. We ask him how are the Union doing so far this season (not well), the ups and downs of Maurice Edu, and. the breakdown of the Andrew Wenger-Jack McInerney trade. We end by talking about Aaron Wheeler and the Union's defense, as well as getting Murph's take on how to gameplan the Union. It is a jam-packed show, and one that you will not want to miss!
