"More beauty take it away. Hey ryan how are you. This is shaun from philadelphia big supporter of the philadelphia union and also a big supporter of the us men's national team. My question has to do with the national team roster and lessen the caning being back on the squad what does mckinney has to do either on the field off the field or both to regain the trust of his manager and a teammate. Thanks for everything you do courage. Oh sure miss philadelphia. Cheese steaks look western mckinney. Will today. we honestly don't know because let's remind ourselves it's not been made public. Exactly what western did say anyone. Prognosticating is really making up and the truth is and this will not shock football as a human beings as sensitive ones device. No doubt a number of players were burnt by west and in the last cycle westerns behavior in the last cycle in. Us soccer most certainly was football. As i've learned this they are incredibly pragmatic human beings. They want to win. And i learned this interview. Eric wynalda from my american fiasco cost the episode. Where john hawkes started original captain. America is mysteriously booted from the team ahead of the nineteen ninety eight world cup after having an affair with elders partner talking to alexi lalas marcelo balboa and to himself about it well this is what they had to say starting with lawless. I was angry. And maybe maybe i'm being flipped. Maybe i'm i'm not being sensitive to eric or anybody else but i would have said. Get over him all right. Let's go let's go win and you guys can fight later. You can hate each other. I don't care. But i want him on my team because he's a good soccer player and i just wanted to win as a professional. I will forgive you a lot as long as you're going to help me win. I think we all thought the same thing. Marcelo balboa harsher was a good player artsy harks deserve to be on that team knowing. Even what you knew now. It doesn't matter it's sad but it's personal life and had nothing to do the way he was playing. It had nothing to do with the chemistry of this team off the field. That's something that harks you went all the had to work out but once you cross that line it goes away and we become a family again and we play because that's what we have to. That's the competitive we. Have we get our job done and we do a well. You see professional football list. They're the athletes and the way they think the way they behave the code. They live their lives by. It's just different to those of us. Who miss civilian. This is everyone else. I thought that if i can handle it. Steve should have been able to handle it and he to this day. I think that that ripping john off our team was ripped the heart out our team. Was it a situation where you like so angry that you couldn't be in the hall now. Look i don't know never. I think i have a unique understanding of that man and okay. So you've learned a lesson about someone's character learned a lesson about but the game always needs to be paramount. You're you're representing your country. We don't have time for that and in a way when you life is crushing off the field this football. The football saves you and anybody. That's ever Gone through something really sometimes. Horrific we've seen. I've had teammates that have lost. Their wife. teammates have lost a child. I've to to be a teammate. In those moments what you what you realize is the game truly is a great escape. And when you're playing the game you you're able to compartmentalize to a certain extent and some of the issues that are going on in your life. Go away because you get to enjoy the game at a whole new level and it is.

"There's been a lot of talk this pressing style playing out from the back style possession based style. Do they have the guys to do it? Jeff asked bear halter about that. You know, I think we need to be calm. I think we need to look at the game. Look what we need to improve. And, and then sit out to do it. You know. It's really tough. You know, after result like this to come in and start making excuses. I don't I don't really want to do that. But what I'd say is we're still getting guys where they need to be, and we're not there yet, and that's pretty clear. So we're gonna keep working on. Can I can I addressed a straight off the bat? Okay. So two things have been bugging me, first of all, we watched England versus the Netherlands, and we saw Kyle Walker pick up the ball in the fullback position an attempt to play the bowl intimate field on the edge of his box. Rocks back the mid figure who come short, right? He's played hospital pass because he can see the defender behind him. He's got the whole field to see and he plays a ball into. Backley. Mbacke dispossessed by the onrushing Dutch. Midfield. The ball ends up in the back of the net. That's not a failure of playing from the back that's a failure of decision making okay playing out from the back has become this trademark this Zalm ba- phrase repeated online and on Twitter over and over. But US soccer fans to stick to be bare hall to with. I'm not saying that this team either has the person or is capable to do that every time. But when Steph and made the mistake he made he had men left on right? He should have opened his body and ping dot to the left hand side, Tim ream who it's gone square ream was not under the same press as it was at the end. It was a terrible owed. Anyway. That was a failure of technique and decision making not a failure of system on. It's also it's not Moses coming down with the ten commandments. You must play out from the back playing from the back is a response. It's a way of playing but it's a responsibility on the professional players on the field to know when it's on. A no one. It's not on Jimmy Carr said the exact same thing after being the Netherlands. So when bear halter talks about playing from the back on, you guys aren't on the same page. I agree with them. I do agree with. But I actually think we're missing something, we're missing was a two pronged, template that he came out with when he took this job? It was a Lexus last that asked him. I think we've got the audio hair he was he told us the way wanted to play just have a listen to this. And then a talk about it off. This is from his introductory, press is very first thing, Alexi Lalas, presses them on how we're gonna play. Yeah. So the idea is that were an attacking based team, then wants to create goalscoring opportunities by this organizing the opponent. You know, it will do that in a number of different ways. What I'd say is, you know, consistently over my time in Columbus. We've done it through build up right where we start the ball. The goal in the back. The teams try to press us we play through them to cry. Goal opportunities where making the field. Big another way to do that is to, to us pressure. Whether we start in amid block or moving to high pressure to force turnovers when the ball and immediately, Craig to the idea is, it's a fluid style that is the players are intent on breaking lines playing through the opponent and creating goal scoring opportunities. Sounds pretty good. Right. The second part was the pack that, that I was licking, my lips. That was the pressure. I don't think we are at this point in the development of US soccer players in a position where we can play from the back regularly play between the lines doodles,.

"The woman who until two weeks ago was known to one and all as the mother of dragons, new nickname, Sydney, welcome yet, it's not going to age. Well, Roach is not going to age well and lost year. We'll come on FOX anchor rope stone. Alexi lalas. Mighty steadfastly promoted football even back in the days when it was a career killer still is. Will tonight's win. Be roger. I don't know. But the golden plays a sits. Right. That proud glistening alive. Ready to be claimed like the thrown, but less melted. I think we've had a little meeting about the golden blades that we've done this, but a few years now and we want to build more anticipation we want to build a little bit more equity around the golden blazes. So, I think now when we say the word golden blazer we're looking for some audience participation. We're looking for you to be like a little more excited about it. So once again, Roach say the golden blazes sits right there. Please. But tonight is about more than just awards. It's also a chance to celebrate this football season of seasons. And the fact that so many GOP's flown in from all points to be with us and revel in the company of a thousand other Americans and their shed football fan FIS right day, very a chair here tonight from up and down the east coast. Does that remarkably passionate concert, contingent from Chicago? There's a west Kerry, stirs, and, again, one of, you know, jobs, Adam Kirsch house for the fifth straight year, flew here yesterday from Bahrain is giving him two more. I just to want Joe crop. Bless you bless bowed raid, which rumor has it. You Eva in the wisdom selected for that year's you're very police fine. Out to many direct client, too many do love a place is quick to knit begins with the letters B. Very, very true. Okay. We've got a pack show. It is guest tastic Roja trade.

Revealing both the first American fans Premier League player of the year award as selected by GOP's, which will get this amazing prize. That's right. A custom-made handcrafted WWE style belts. It was melted. We rule. So awarding America's American player of the year very tough competition this season might rhyme with meandrous meddling. You never know. But I we are living at a time of peak football to death defying English teams Tottenham and Liverpool. Langley the Champions League. Uneven Bertha to English teams of made the you're right. Billy. Teas. Thousands of Chelsea, you know, full funds the excuse to take that dream trip took dilemma back you off that bucket list. Get ready back those coming full you. And in the FA Cup Manchester City. Dave. You win the treble and this is what happens is wonderful. It's wonderful. Manchester City gave what would? No reaction whatsoever. The same treatment that the nearest doled out to king's landing to secure that historic domestic treble though, is it technically even the Cup final if a manager and goalkeeper on openly beefing for the whole world to save Roach, you tell me and ask for the league. What a magnificent primarily these magnificent eastern, picking up. One, the we should never take the granted. And right now, we wanna revisit out, talk three moments of this seasonal one, though. I highlight by the way, when the booing listeners who on the cost that booing out of love and respect. The first highlight has to pay much just to sit. They walk both in December but pep Guardiola was able to handle it for like a once-off engineer repot ching in the wake of security.

"But yeah. For the most part, I usually don't root for Manchester United. But at that game. I definitely will. All right. Well, you know, it's interesting. That's a good take, you know, just root for your the best outcome for your team to would be United down on city. So it just just being the shit said. So what do you think what's going on with HAMAs Salah like he's had, you know, not the worst form? But definitely not the best. Especially what we saw last season. What do you think's going on with him? He seems a little tentative if that's the best word. Yeah. Yeah. He's he's actually going through a rough patch. I mean, he was up there in top of the league scoring. But I think a lot of the reason was is under Arnold's injury. He's behind him. He's he gets really really far forward in place right behind Saleh, which allows them to kind of play more in. And then whenever he was heard and Milner was playing right back for a while. We had a we lack the lot of creativity going down there. Right. Flank and solid kind of suffers from that. And he has a really balanced back with Trent back in the lineup yet on the. Luckily, Monty has been carrying us through these goals recently. I think he's scored like seven in his last seven or scored in assistant. So he's been going off. I think just having a rough patch. He's definitely proven this season. Even though he hasn't eased on top of the top of the charts. He's definitely NADA. When she's a wonder the season was still pretty good. It wasn't last season. By any means is that was impossible to duplicate it still been a good season. Each is. I I have confidence he'll be able to turn it around for last month and a half of the season, two months. Yeah. I definitely think the criticism have been has been way too harsh. I mean, 'cause they're all they're doing is comparing it the last season, and you cannot put a hole in last season in Mohammed Salah at all. So now people are saying like the fuck and roof is crumbling. It's like no like how will that was an unreal individual season by an unreal player. So I think I definitely agree like in. Luckily money like, you said has been on absolute fire that being in not be fucking stopped. I just love watching him play so much because you know, he's probably going to school where he's been scoring only goals but fantastic goals. Yeah. He's just his play styles. Really entertaining because he's liked whenever he going. It's one hundred percent when he's making runs doing dribbles things like that. He just goes such a such a just like a ferocious pace constantly always attacking that goal against Byron. Where he where he dummied pass the Golian than flicked it on. That was just perfect any scored a brace against into. So he definitely. Helped us there in the last month or so if it wasn't for him this. I don't think this hour race would even be the upper bay. I think city would pull away by six seventy points by now if it wasn't for him. All right. I got a quick question for you. Logan. I just tweeted at Alexi Lalas. He just is going to be in New York City this weekend. I'm going to be in New York City. I said thoughts on an interview this week. And when I'm in Manhattan, so what do you what what what are the chances? He responded says. Yes. To say if brace off of previous interaction, you guys have had on Twitter on the U or that's Martin. But I'm gonna proc- probably not. I mean, never say never. But I, you know, it's it's basically the scene a dumb dumb roots gets a one in a million chance will you're saying. There's a chance is saying is chant because there is at the end of the day. There is still a chance I don't big one. But I mean, if you did that would be crazy for the cloud, dude. Fernan brand brother be saying the brand would be fucking boom in. I would just like, you know, it'd probably just be meek Morton's out of North Carolina at least so funny. I would just have to do a ton..

"By the way, reading an article from a San Francisco sportswriter, why would the warriors stars joined LeBron James collapsing kingdom in Los Angeles. I was having dinner last night with a source, and we talked about this that if you join the bronze you just have to understand what you're getting to me. There's been three stages of LeBron. The first stage was freight train. Lebron that was the first five six years in the NBA. It was hallmarked by his ability to chase down NBA players. I'd never seen this before and not only blocked there shot, but block it off the backboard it was the chase down block it became his signature move. He do it about twice a week. I can remember running highlights and thinking I've never seen that before the second stage of LeBron was the offensively LeBron refined. Lebron that's the Miami. Lebron shot a three developed a low post game became remarkably efficient. Lebron the third stage because he's no longer in one banana that for a long time. No longer in two is the picks his spots. Lebron? He just can't give you a great defensive effort every time down the floor. He disappears. He gives you a foreign five minute moments. He's a little out of shape now because of the injury, which only elevates it. But as long as you realize you're getting stage three picks his spots. Lebron? It's all good.

"I'm an old, man. And in behind the times, apparently, but a Premier League USA was pressuring putting more and more pressure on read it to block legal streams and blog copyright. Right shit. And it got so out of hand. I guess the amount of streamers on on our soccer. Streams that read funded shut it down. And I I. I really do believe that NBC gold started. This feels go. I don't know if they directly caused fucking the streaming website to be shut down, but their pay wall was the first soccer paywall that was you know, instituted forced upon you. And then reluctantly accepted. And once that's at least us it was forced upon us, which is the most that that's so fucked them, I don't care if there's other pay walls that was the first one we hit. That's fucking absolutely true. And you know, what we head of friend who had an account, and he paid for the ketone. So we thought we were good. We had the count we could watch whatever. And then they're like, no you have to pay to watch certain games that that sucked. And then. Then this year with Bleacher report slash TNT to watch Champions League games last year, rose on Fox Sports, you could watch any single game for free on Fox Sports go. Now, you have to pay a brand new subscription to watch be our live. I'm sorry. I don't wanna fucking here. Steve Nash and some other American commentator about Champions League on a here English people. The way the football is deserve to be heard. And now, you just have the companies the fucking owners of the pram champions, the pressuring streaming sites to shut everything down. So everything is behind a paywall. So I can I'm gonna fucking close it out with this a giant. Fuck you too. All you money hungry. Fucking bitches that are demanding the US soccer fan pay money to watch soccer. No wonder this sport isn't growing as quickly in the United States as it could imagine if we could watch all this auger wet and Faulk made that'd be great. But no NBC gold has to make it's money. Like, it's not a giant fucking corporate. Nation that has Monday night football on it. Anyway, they don't need to fucking force people to pay money to watch soccer, God, I hate people and rant sorry. And and that was Martin talking. No, I totally agree. And like when I think TNT, I think like basketball league that sucks now I gotta like rework my fucking brain like rewire it like what is this? Like I do. I do like a stew Holden. Like, he's. Okay. But then again, it is nothing against like. That's why I feel like obviously, we could never commentate a game. But like his I just I just missed the British. You know, you're just there's something soothing calming. They're not like people are yelling the whole time. It's not like Alexi Lalas whose like fucking screaming the whole time. But you know, there's just a little bit more like, you know, air in the room when there's British people do in the commentating. You know, what I mean exactly, I don't I can't remember if if you and I have talked about this before if my brother, and I talked about this before we all talked about it together, which all three are giant possibility. But we noticed that the difference between American commentating in British commentating is the mountain pausing. The amount of you know. Silence from the commentators and just allowing the game to be played. And you can hear the noise of the crowd. Like, I want that I want that. I don't want Stu Holden and Alexi lawless. Landon Donovan tailored twelve min fucking. Who else am I missing? I think who's the this Manish not that or that. No, no, no, the Mexican guy from Fox Sports go who like screams, the whole time. Oh, Alberto Merano Alberto Marino. No, not the guy from ESPN NFC. It's another guy. I forget that dude is the guy who said della Faye was the next messy. So I will always have a place. Oh, no not that that guy that guy's a fucking nerd. I'm just going to say like like. Like, it was like it was like I could give this guy second chance. But like there's no second chance after you say della phase going to make it like Barcelona the star..

There's no hard feelings dot seems like he wants out not just that there's going to be a parenting, but that he'd like to go somewhere else on Twitter. Eighty nine a wouldn't blame him if he was heading wear next. I don't know what are you implying return trip to Europe? I mean, if he's going to go he needs to go. No, I don't think that will be the case though. But somewhere else, I think he might wanna go somewhere else line about him mission complete. Yeah. I now. Yeah, they wanna title. He was due aurea seasonally. Yeah. But I do wonder coming off the season that Toronto are coming off of putting that quote in front of a fan right now. I don't know. Maybe maybe they would agree with that. It just felt like this season was just such a disappointment. I don't know if maybe Toronto FC fans expected a a little bit more prolonged. More of a prolonged stay at the top of the league, the whole and that when Alexi Lalas was talking about dynasties, and and the like, but he wasn't alone. No. There was a lot of people think people thought that they could go on and win a cop Champions League or they could go on and repeat in MLS. And for the way that it went. I don't know. Look, ultimately, he's right. It was mission complete Toronto FC were a disaster of club for years. And then this renaissance they got to a final they went on and one at the next year. They said a points record at the time. So yes, I don't mean to to like parse through his words and pluck out my own meaning he's right. He did what what they set out to do. But I don't know. I feel like Toronto. Could if he wanted to stay there long term, and they could keep the score together. Like, they could go on and continue being great club a lifestyle. Change is William maybe warm weather, something like that. Yeah. JJ? You know, we got we got one of these. Well, he really does screen that doesn't.

He said it will be the last. He did an interview early on. He said it'll be the last time. I will be calling him Frank. I will be calling him gaffer from now on. Yeah. I don't know what I saw it. It felt weird for a couple of reasons one. He's he's just at an age where I just like wouldn't have thought that this is that he'd be really on anyone's radar he willingly anymore. He will be the oldest player. Should he play which we expect? He will. He will be the oldest player to feature in the championship this season. It was it was particularly weird for me. Because do you remember what he was saying about MLS before he went there that it was off that it's just like this is a retirement community, but he came to any played at a high level. Even last year. I thought he was still very good for the galaxy. He took it. He took it seriously. And for whatever that was worth it left. Some kind of impression whether that beyond Lampert or somebody at Darby who thought you know, what he still good enough. Like, I can watch what he's doing an MLS.

"I don't know dude, I stood there like a little stunned for five seconds because the power of the laws of the on that shot Kuhn hit that with anger with Haight. So clinical so consistent. I really in the past like five to six years have I can't think of a more consistent player next to like him. Harry kane. I mean, so. Yeah. I mean, but I'm just like goal score. Like God Canaan head so far in a league of their own in terms. Yeah. Yeah. Agreed. But I give the edged obviously titles like try shit on Todd. I'm right now, I'm just saying like guero has done even when there is dispute between him and gravel cheesy Nick where it was like the kid down face. Does the biggest big move in the wealth, by the way? Do you remember pure alpha? When buddy was talking about that saying AB Jay's replacing Wairoa's done and then get them. Motherfuckers. Nah, I'd been on to former Liverpool player Rehim, sterling. There was a penalty. Shout for him. A Roberson him got to scuffle. I didn't make too much of it. Some people were saying I saw Alexi Lalas few other commentators definitely a penalty. I don't know. It seemed like sterling kind of put Robertson and headlock. It was it seemed like they were both grappling with each other. So I it could have been a foul somewhere off the field. But I think the ref played it. Well, didn't give the penalty two-way which just brings me to my next point real quick Marin that Rogerson had a phenomenal absolute phenomenal game that kid that Scottish lad fucking great. I I mean, we're even talking about them all last year and this year, he's undeniably, just I think he's probably one of the best defenders and just tacking. What's it called defenders in the Premier League? Yeah. And I don't say this law, but I genuinely like Liverpool's fullbacks both. Roberson and Trent Alexander Arnold. I think they are brilliant defenders both in terms of their defense as well as they're attacking these and that kind of links into Liverpool's goal the goal. It self was created by the two fullbacks train Alexander Arnold received the ball in the in the right side of the field. Maybe ten fifteen yards from the eighteen and he had the for like, ten seconds. And sees a sprinting Robertson going into the eighteen and plays a fifty yard bold. Like, it's goddamn job and Robertson sets up Bobby from me. No, aka, white toothed. Bobby aka bride is bright smile. Bobby showing tease me much shiny chief. It also there was a major substitution at that point win. James Milner came all for came off. And if amino came out with a huge difference maker when he came on the passes, we're way more fluid definitely delivering more that long vol. I mean, Liverpool aren't like the ticky taco man city. And that's what felt like they were doing for a bit. And they kept giving up dumb possession, bad passes and Philip back into better form and led to the to goal by Bobby menia. I also want to move onto Lee ROY sonnet Jenkins. God, I I am just blown away by that goal Marin off the far post, absolutely brilliant. And I was gonna give show two zero who did one those dummy runs during it through guero is so intelligent that. It's unbelievable. And I feel like I'm giving me and see a lot of praise pool was obsolete really brilliant during this game too. But specifically almost like a screen, you know, like they do in hockey, and like screen the defense totally dumped them out and Sunday just win for it Sunday..

It just talked to Martina would have been a good candidate. Yeah. Why not interview him? I mean, he was not interviewed in the end. There were three people who were actually who got four interviews. So it was Gregg Berhalter Oscar Paret and one still unnamed I think Dutch is what it sounded like from Ernie Stewart said I'd like to actually find out who this was who said bore Frank Deboer, one of the divorce could be actually I it's less likely that because what what Stewart said at the press conference was that he was notified by this person that he had a job.

Now, keep in mind that this new job part of the requirement for the US coach is that he lived in Chicago and basically work out of the same office at US soccer with Ernie Stewart in so then. Then the question becomes what are those daily things going to be that Ernie Stewart is working? You you hear the collaboration? Yeah. These days.
