Filibuster is back and finally has a D.C. United win about which to talk! Jason, Adam, and Ben talk (9:10) about how good it feels to have watched a well played game, and one that scored multiple goals off of the high press. We break down Paul Arriola’s move to central midfield and what that meant for Zoltan Stieber. We get into Darren Mattocks and whether or not Wayne Rooney would have been in position to finish the second-half chance that Mattocks did not, heap praise on Chris Durkin, and take another look at the status of the back line.

In the second segment (41:04) we welcome back a Filibuster favorite: Alicia Rodriguez of Angels on Parade. We talk about her shiny new team, its star player, Carlos Vela, and their new stadium. We also discuss their back line prospects against D.C. United, since many of their players will be away on national team duty, as well as their central midfield. We end be asking Alicia about LAFC’s local broadcast deal with YouTubeTV and ask her to gameplan LAFC for us. Give it a listen!
