D.C. United versus Montreal Impact, plus the state of the playoff race: Filibuster

It is getting tight

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The seasons are turning to fall, the playoff race is heating up, and D.C. United are in a fight to the finish. Jason, Adam, and Ben first turn their eyes to D.C. United’s massive upcoming game against the Montreal Impact. We break down the state of this Montreal team, what tactics they are likely to use, what this game means for both teams, and the players that Ben Olsen will turn to to try and keep their playoff dreams alive.

In the second segment we look at the other teams with whom United are fighting to get that last spot in the Eastern Conference. We see who has the hardest schedule, who has the best chance to get in, and who can help D.C. United foil their competitors late in this season. 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.
