Filibuster podcast episode 156: Whiskey and sadness

We are here to help ease you into a too-soon offseason.

All good things must come to an end, and that includes D.C. United's 2015 season. Adam, Jason, and Ben are here to be your Virgil as we start the journey through the Divine Comedy that is the offseason. But first, we have one last D.C. United game about which to talk: we ask whether this was the right lineup for the game between United and the New York Red Bulls, whether Olsen could have or should have changed his system, and whether or not injuries should be a talking point.

We also ask whether we should be talking about firing Ben Olsen, talk about Bob Bradley as an MLS coach, and the piteous state of D.C. United's scouting network.

We then move on to talk about the upcoming qualifiers for World Cup 2018. We ask whether Bill Hamid will start, talk about the first-timers on the roster and specifically Darlington Nagbe. We also discuss who should start on the forward line and could Jurgen Klinsmann get fired in any scenario.

Finally, we open up the Twitterbox to some D.C. United questions. We talk about whether Kofi Opare and Steve Birnbaum will force Bobby Boswell to the bench, whether Chris Pontius and Fabian Espindola will be back next year, wonder what do the teams left have that United doesn't, and ponder a 3-5-2 for DCU. This show contains 100% of your recommended daily value of soccer, so give it a listen!
