Previewing D.C. United versus New England Revolution: Filibuster

We bring on Alex Almeida to help

After a wonderful second half versus the Portland Timbers, Filibuster is back with a rare second episode! Jason, Adam, and Ben talk about United’s best soccer in a long while, and focus on all the impacts Wayne Rooney has made both on his own and the effect he’s had on his teammates, We also discuss the sports science that led to less rotation than we thought we would see, as well as United’s newly unprecedented levels of swag.

In the second segment we welcome on Alex Almeida from Six States, One Podcast, to talk about the New England Revolution. We discuss their season so far and the style that Brad Friedel has implemented. We ponder the lack of use of Kelyn Rowe, where the problems in their defense lie, and the physicality of the team. We end by talking about their new signings, more rumors about a possible soccer specific stadium for the Revs, and ask Alex to gameplan the Revs 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.
