D.C. United versus Philadelphia Union preview, letdown at NYRB: Filibuster

We break down the letdown at Red Bull Arena

Even though it was not the result we wanted against the New York Red Bulls, D.C. United must press onwards, as must your favorite podcast. Adam, Jason, and Ben talk about the balance of play against the Red Bulls and break down the only goal of the game, including the questionable free kick that started the sequence. We discuss how, with this current team, we thought that D.C. United could actually have a chance of coming back. Finally we talk about how the subs were almost too amped up when they came in, talk some more about D.C. United’s corner kicks, and discuss what rotation might be necessary due to Yamil Asad’s injury.

Tomorrow, the team is back at it again against the Philadelphia Union. We break down their midfield and whether or not their young center backs are a liability, as well as discuss the play of their forwards that has left some familiar names on the bench. 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.
