It is the end of the week, but don’t worry; your friends at Filibuster didn’t forget you. We are here to talk about D.C. United’s bizarre 3-3 draw against the New York Red Bulls, starting with Bradley Wright-Phillips’ hat trick display. We get into Wayne Rooney’s amazing goal, discuss Bill Hamid’s performance, and bow at the alter of Luciano Acosta. We also break down the 3-5-2 and whether or not we liked it before discussing the best formations for this United team, which includes a discussion of the team’s current center backs and their injury problems.
In the second segment we talk about the weird friendly against CD Olimpia before answering questions from you, our listeners! 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.
