D.C. United’s destruction of Montreal Impact, plus previewing Chicago Fire: Filibuster

Luxuriate in it!

Everything’s good after a win, and everything is even better after a 5-0 destruction of your closest playoff rival. Jason, Ben, and Adam are back to talk about D.C. United’s domination of the Montreal Impact, and we start with how all of D.C. United’s biggest name players showed up on Saturday and made that game their own. We also break down how close the team was to a funhouse mirror version of this game, Ben Olsen’s changing tactics throughout the game, and who we would want to replace Oniel Fisher if he can’t continue. We end by singing Luciano Acosta’s praises and talking about the national team prospect’s of the members of this team.

In the second segment we welcome on James Bridget Gordon, managing editor of our sister site, Hot Time in Old Town. We start by asking them about Djordje Mihailovic and the tactics on the field before going big picture and asking whether or not its even fun to by a Chicago Fire fan these days. We also ask them about the mid-season changes, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and get them to gameplan the reeling Fire for us. Give it a listen!

With your support, we’ve made two big upgrades! The first is that we are producing chapter marks for the segments now, and those should appear directly in your podcast app (or on SoundCloud, if you listen there). The second is that there are now audio transcriptions of the podcast for those who want or need them! They are available on our Internet Archive page only, so you’ll need to go over there to find them; they’re produced by speech recognition software, so they’re not 100% accurate, but they look readable. These upgrades are only possible because of the support we get on Patreon, so if you appreciate these upgrades, consider pitching in.
