Filibuster podcast episode 124: D.C. United versus LA Galaxy and Orlando City SC, USMNT

On tap tonight: Big Hill Ciderworks Little Round Hop, Rum and Pineapple Juice, Elysian Split Shot Espresso Milk Stout, Sam Adams Cold Snap

Despite a computer eating last week's episode, we cannot be held back. The Filibuster crew is back, though we have sent Adam to Belgium to secure Andy Najar's return. Jason, Ben, and Ryan start off by talking about D.C. United's win over the LA Galaxy, and tallk about how Taylor Kemp and Kofi Opare impressed us. We also ask whether or not United's defensive "bend but don't break" strategy is sustainable, and whether or not their reliance on big plays early in the season is worrying or heartening.

We then briefly mention the USMNT game that is most likely happening before you listen to this, and talk about what we want to see out of this game versus what we expect to see out of this game. We aren't very encouraged, so prove us wrong, Jurgen!

Finally, we bring on Michael Citro from The Mane Land to talk about United's first ever game against Orlando City SC. We talk about their injuries and how that has forced thm into a formation change, what its like to have a designated player like Kaka, why did Pedro Ribeiro have a shirt with no numbers, Adrian Heath, Sean St. Ledger, Donovan Ricketts, and, of course, LEWIS NEAL. Give it a listen!
