D.C. United preseason and previewing LAFC: Filibuster

We have an actual game to analyze!

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

With one preseason game behind us and another big signing under their belts, Jason, Ben, and Adam talk (8:29) about D.C. United’s performance against Malmo FF. We talk about the game overall and the play of Darren Mattocks, and go deep into the roles of the revamped midfield. We also discuss whether or not the starters in this game gave us any insight into Ben Olsen’s thinking, the cuts to the preseason campers after this game, and the arrival (finally) of Yamil Asad.

In the second segment (41:10) we welcome back Alicia Rodriguez of Angels on Parade to discuss the new folks in town: LAFC. We try to come up with a team nickname, before jumping into the big name players and who might be an under the radar signing. We ask if they know they can sign more than 18 players, ask about our old friend Dejan Jakovic, and the work that they’ve done in the community, before ending with their shiny new stadium. Give it a listen!

We want to again thank everyone who has supported us on Patreon and who allow us to continue to make this show and make it better; if you want to help us, click the link and take a look! We’ve almost reached our goal to produce bonus content just for Patreon subscribers, so if you want to make Adam do more work, give it some consideration.
