Listen: Dowding, CUP, Twitter discussed on Puty's World Cup Podcast
"But there's one question that came to mind that I should've had written down and it's it's basically there's there is an inherent conflict between winning something like the Gold Cup in next summer. You know, the go Cup, twenty nineteen and Dowding for the World Cup twenty twenty two. You know, it's, it's tough. You wanna have your best players out there and win that tournament in twenty nineteen. But at the same time you wanna you wanna you wanna have the players that need the experience and will be the best players in twenty two also on the field. You know. So can you walk me through that conflict in your mind which way you typically would go between? You know, playing the best players, the best, eleven twenty nineteen versus you know, having the players that you think are going to be the best in twenty twenty two. Well, my quick version my quick answer is I have that conflict for all the friendly's that ideal with currently? Yeah. Where do you? How do you? How do you blend in veterans and guys that you think can still be a part of things down the line, whether it's two years and qualifying or four years? A cutter. And how do you also use the young guys? And to answer your question about the Gold Cup, anytime you're in the competition, you wanna win it. And anytime you're in a competition, you wanna win it with players that can help you win. And so the the all the programming to this point and and building in twenty nineteen until we get to the Gold Cup will be moving in the direction so that if we do introduce different older, whatever you wanna call him veteran players for Cup purposes, that may not be there at cutter, but we've already begun that that transformation in transition process. Yes. So that's how it sort of moves along. So it's always a conflict of using opportunities for the young and then also players that you feel can get you where you need to go. But the very clear when you get in a competition like goal, Cup and fall, you're there for one reason only to win it and and so it's it's a, it's a real real blend. Okay. Well, Dave, this has been amazing. Can't can't take enough one last thing. Have you seen Christian pulisic walk on water, yes or no? No, haven't seen that yet. It's only matter time. Well, they've been great, really can't. Thank you. Know my cladding to you. You. Well, let's look go US, maybe. Thank you. Thank you, man. Bye. Bye. Take care. So that was the interview what they Ciragan. We are looking forward to doing a lot more of those, but for now we will move on. So welcome back. Everybody we have got on this. So with barstool Sam myself, we have barstools are and Mikey podcast how you guys do it, what's up, what's up. It's going on man. Walk back everybody. So you guys, we got a lot of stuff to talk about here. We can run through it real quick. Thankfully, we don't have a lot of mid week stuff to talk about because I am personally religiously opposed to analogy the distance of the what I call the the make believe League Cup Antill say the semi finals or so we're not really agree with that. I think he's cop out of talking about a terrible performance personally. Well, that's true that may actually play, but at least I do have a long history of, you know, say on the at least I am on the record of Narita forever at least on Twitter. So I don't know that actually counts trust me, we've we've learned anything this week is that, is that what you say on Twitter does count on the record? Actually everything everything no matter when you know count in no context. The context context. Okay, so we'll move right along to top stories. So we've got to got written down here. So number one, there was reports from all sorts of people that VA are. Everybody knows how much I love the a are. So VR is coming to the Champions League next season. So I've spoken at length about this. You know, I, I love it for objective calls. I hate it for subjective calls.
