NYCFC meltdown and D.C. United vs. Columbus Crew SC: Filibuster 228

Let’s dispose of the NYCFC game as quickly as possible

Well that was another poor performance from D.C. United, but the guys from Filibuster are here to talk you through it. We talk about the game against New York City FC and start with some praise for Ian Harkes before diving into everything that went wrong. We talk about the midfield, the goals, and Steve Birnbaum and Sean Franklin. We also have to talk about the defensive midfield position, and the attack for good measure.

We then bring on Kris Landis of Massive Report to give us the update on Columbus Crew SC. We talk about what has been missing from Gregg Berhalter’s cookbook so far this season and the issues with Wil Trapp that reflect the issues with their gameplan. We talk about Zack Steffen and whether Federico Higuain’s frustrations are a problem, Harrison Afful get subbed out at halftime, and his opposite number at fullback. Finally, we talk about their central midfield, the utility of Adam Jahn, and how to gameplan the Crew. Give it a listen!
