Adam, Jason, and Ben are back with an extra-long edition of Filibuster! We start off by talk about D.C. United's comeback victory over the Philadelphia Union. We talk about how impressive the comeback was, how they managed it, and the key play of Nick Deleon, Perry Kitchen, and Alvaro Saborio. We then have to talk about the first 188 seconds of the game, and we ponder why United has to come from behind so often this season.
We then talk about the United States' disappointing showing in the Gold Cup. We talk about how losing in the semi-finals is not okey, despite the fact that other teams in Concacaf are getting better, and then go full-in on Jurgen Klinsmann: his lineup choices and his roster choices. We end with a twitterbox question and name some players we would probably include instead.
Finally, we welcome on Brian Dunseth to talk about D.C. United's weekend game against Real Salt Lake. We talk about Jeff Cassar's 4-3-3 versus Jason Kreis' diamond, the Luis Silva trade, how Javier Morales is ageless, the phenomenon of good teams losing to bad ones, and how to gameplan RSL. Brian Dunseth is great, so give it a listen!
