This weekend was all about the USMNT, so Jason, Adam, and Ben have to start with the two disastrous qualifiers. We start with the man on the sideline, Bruce Arena, and try to assess how much of the blame for these games is on him (hint: a lot). We talk about Bruce trying Darlington Nagbe in a central role against Costa Rica, and whether or not Christian Pulisic should have been in the middle instead of out wide. We break down the poor play of the goalkeepers and rail against Bruce’s reasoning from bringing Nick Rimando, before finally turning our ire at the defense in general and Omar Gonzalez in particular.
In the second segment we preview D.C. United, somehow the most optimistic of all our soccer teams, and their upcoming visit from Orlando City SC. We break down all the things that are wrong with Orlando City and their 2 wins in their past 20 games, theorize why they brought in Dom Dwyer and what he might do, and ponder whether or not Jason Kreis in on the hot seat. Give it a listen!
