Filibuster has reached its 300th episode, and we’re here to celebrate with you! Jason, Adam, and Ben talk about D.C. United’s 1-1 draw against the Montreal Impact, in which we discuss the disaster of the first 8 minutes and what happened after the team showed up. We break down the lineup Ben Olsen chose and the lineups that we thought we would see, and analyze Yamil Asad’s goal. Finally, we look at Wayne Rooney’s performance and his role in this pressing style.
In the second segment we talk about D.C. United’s Sunday game against Orlando City SC, who have a new coach from the last time we played them. We talk about James O’Connor and his style for Orlando City, discuss the trade of Justin Meram back to the Columbus Crew, and discuss how we would gameplan the Lions. 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.
