It is Wednesday, and so that means it is Filibuster day! Jason, Ben, and Adam are back to talk about all things soccer, and we start off with D.C. United’s preseason. We discuss the fact that Jalen Robinson has been with the first team more often than Kofi Opare, the return of Steve Birnbaum, whether or not Ian Harkes can grab a starting spot, and the good play of Jose Guillermo Ortiz so far. It being Filibuster, we also have to talk about the fullback situation and whether or not we can have Nick DeLeon play all spots on the field at once.
For the second segment we welcome on Cody Bradley from Stars and Stripes FC to talk about the US men’s national team’s recent friendlies. We talk about whether or not the January camp was success this year, Benny Feilhaber’s performance, and the worst thing that came out of the camp. We also glow over Jorge Villanfana, talk about the central midfield, and discuss Darlington Nagbe’s return to the USMNT fold. Finally, we ask whether or not Graham Zusi is the answer at right back, the point of not using Jozy Altidore in the second game, the starters, and the keepers.
In the last segment, we crack open the Twitterbox and answer your questions, including about Settlers of Catan and Chris Durkin, plus much, much more. Give it a listen!
