"Something of a curse, a team hoping to reach a knockout rounds needs to score in other ways too. The scruffy goals, the scrappy goals, the lucky goals are cheap and dirty goals, the goals that come out of nothing and the goals that come from playing the percentages. The goals that bring with them just a hint of shape, bite your arm off for a goal that has a hint of shame raw. This U.S. team you concluded does not. At least not as often as it should. Yeah, I think the doll that the U.S. stored weighs doll was beautifully worked. It was a genuinely stunning move where everything kind of came together perfectly. But the problem is if you can only store dolls like that, you have to work really hard for them. And I think the problem that the U.S. have, and it's not unique to the U.S. because there's a lot of countries in this in this boat, is they don't have someone who can bundle one off their ass effectively. That is a really important trait to have in a team. Does someone who, if the cross is a bit rubbish, can somehow bring it under control, hold off a couple of defenders and bundler over the line with their knee. Get a cheap goal and easy doll a lazy doll, the sort of goal that you that fans don't really celebrate. They feel a bit bad about as you can tell it's a bit lucky. As I say, I think there's a real problem for a lot of countries with that. It's why en Valencia, who's 33 playing in turkey, everything legend, Everton legend, very much at the end of his career in a Valencia. It's why he's still up front for epidural because they haven't they haven't been able to find a replacement for him. There's no one who has that sense for gold that knows the goal that he does. And that's the issue the U.S. have actually thought reading the coverage of the U.S. result from other outlets. I was slightly surprised how negative a lot of that a lot of that response to that result has been. Wales are a wise and battle hardened team. They're not bad whales. They're not pretty to watch, but they have got a lot of experience. They've been, they've been through this dance before, they made the semifinal of the aura 6 years ago. They have the statue of Gareth Bale up front that he can still store goals. I thought the U.S. in patches played really well. I thought they dominated the ball. I think there's signs of really promising like partnerships on the pitch Tim ream and Anthony Robinson. I think it's a great idea. You don't need to get them to speed. I think what Robinson himself actually was probably the standout player on the pitch. You've got a nicely balanced midfield. I thought Eunice Musa, western mckenney and Tyler Adams, not to convince they're all three of them are fully fit, but I thought when they, in the first sort of half hour, they looked like they had a really nice balance to them. Pulisic was in and out. To be honest, I thought Tim weller looked exciting. I'd like to see Brendan aronson play more, because I think Brendan Harrison is the sort of player who would make a system like that worked, he just runs constantly, the man that the square ball, everyone's favorite leads united fan team, has nicknamed the yank badger. I think there's signs of promise for the U.S. there is there is. The angst rule comes from the journey we've been on the now 57 game trip up the river Greg, where we want to believe we won the dream, but that second half the inability to adjust to look that we have a plan that we have an idea that we could maintain control. It's set off and you've not been on every game in that journey with us, it set off lots of echoes. And when you talk about a goal scorer who can score that sloppy shame goal, you make me miss yossi Zara, there's no one in will football who is better off at instructing his teammates to slap the ball as hard as powerfully at his own face in the environment of the goal line. He's at the human backboard. Oh, we should never give up on projects are. There's we do need to quickly acknowledge the Welsh as you hint. I mean, again, we think of our team in a bubble. Why are they why didn't they win? Well, it's only whales, but bloody hell whales. They are. They are an experience. They are a wizened they are a they have their own dream, their own journey, and we've got a hint of that when it got off to a bad start. We didn't even try and compete in the anthem of the Welsh. The Welsh smashed us with one of the most rousing, renditions of land of our fathers have ever heard. For a point before kick-off, that's what I thought just draw this game. I think really the style of the defeat rule, the penalty concession by walkers zimmermann made it feel like a one one loss. But we do have to give huge credit to Gareth Bale 33 years of age. Done everything. One everything at the club level, part of when he plays in the Tottenham Jersey, played out of the game by Tim ream, who completely outmanned Bundy. But he still found a way to deliver glory and make himself again the Welsh savior of folklore. Yeah, it's funny, you know, I was talking to someone about this today as I was writing about Argentina. Lionel Messi is a better player than Gareth Bale. Lionel Messi for my money is the best of all time. Gareth Bale is not. He's not in the top ten, not in the top 20, probably not in the top 30. But there is one area where I think bale has an advantage on Messi, and that's that in a

"Going and getting it. On the America punishes Chelsea and that will be a goal first leads goal for Brendan Harrison. The pressure. Can you describe that moment? What was going through your head Brendan as the opportunity materialized? Honestly, like I had lost the ball and I was like, oh God, I gotta get it back, you know? 'cause you don't wanna lose the balls in midfield, or you're trying to connect as many passes as you can. But I lost the ball and in our system in the system that we play, it's high press, like you said, and when we win the ball, we try to win it back right away. In that moment, I lost the ball and trying to get it back as quick as you can. The block goes back to the keeper. So you follow through with the run and I had watched Mindy in the past and I know he likes to try things with his feet and yeah, I think that helps with watching a lot of soccer and that's what I do a lot. So seeing that and kind of knowing maybe he's gonna chop it or something, I came in and scored. Come on, Leeds. Lots of discuss. But let's hear it for one second. I love that little young budget. Some massive games this weekend, two quick notes, honestly due in my week to a leash with umbro, another collaboration. Just a magical limited edition set of designs. It's called dreams of glory, since 1994, and the double diamond for us, the original football brand, and we based our designs on the classic embrace silhouette for 1994 men's World Cup. They've been reimagined, a stonewash kits, and I love them. I particularly love the courage sweatshirt. I've hardly taken it off since it arrived. Get yours for the tournament, get yours for the holidays. At men in places dot com. And come and raise a point with us and John Oliver. We are now just 12 days away from the start of the men in blazers. This cups for you World Cup tour. And we've got an incredible shape to kick things off. It's we're going to break down every storyline of the World Cup. In New York City, at terminal 5, Tuesday, November 15th, can be reversed because we're going to be joined by none other than John Oliver just my mate, the glory of truly a brilliant human being and we will preview the entire World Cup that stretches out before us. John has been on men in places more than any other guest, and yet he has had the good judgment to never appear on stage with us, and that all changes, November 15th, come be with us. We're going to go deep on Group B Welsh king and legendary actor Matthew Reese, who are believe, was once a roommate of Michael Sheen. I think that's right, well, him all about that on stage. He of the Americans fame, he is going to get the kimono hype. I've probably said that totally wrong because it's sim wrote is it Kim roof. I don't mean to dish you well. So I actually fear you.

So seeing that and kind of knowing maybe he's gonna chop it or something, I came in and scored. When did you exactly in that running make the conscious decision to go no look? Honestly, I didn't even try to do a no look. It was more being scared that someone could be coming behind me. You know, I had to really make sure that no one was coming. But it did look like a cheeky note look out. We'll say that. It's a very cheap you know look. You look like American Bobby for me now in that moment. But when that ball crossed the line, how did it feel? Was it relief or pure joy in that moment we had an amazing start to the season and it was just pure joy because the way the team was playing and to score the goal against the giant club like Chelsea, it was amazing feeling and I think that to really get the crowd into it and get the team going. It was a big moment. I tweeted after that goal that it was such a big moment. It was the first time in our nation's history, then American player that's got an English man's top flight goal under an American manager. And it's genuinely huge and I hope that our kids generation experience that almost as routine and then you gave your interview post match, said to him which I truly loved. Yeah, it just goes to show people around the world that Americans can play football too. Brandon, American players for the last two decades, they have had a stigma around them. Teams and fans have seen them as lesser. Have you felt that and felt it changing? I definitely feel it changing. You know? And when I had that interview and stuff like this, even when I'm thinking back at it, I think, yeah, I said that and I'm happy that I said something like that, but even besides that, I think we have so many guys that have paved the way over the years. And I think that stigma has gone away even with going back to Brian McBride, Clint Dempsey Landon Donovan. These guys don't get enough credit for really being the frontrunners over here. And even before that, there were some guys that came over too. So I think that stigma is going away because we've had some great players playing the Premier League and other leagues around the world. And it's only going to get better. The leads fans embraced you immediately. There was a local call in radio show. Don't know if you heard it, but they immediately said, I love that little young budget. You know, running the place. Tyler Adams. I've always loved America. And that Ellen road chant rang out to the tune of American boy. And

"Aaronson going again. And the American punishes Chelsea and that will be a goal first leads goal for Brendan Harrison. The pressure literally paying off fully united. An Ellen road Iraq. By the way, programming note Brendan aronson, yes, metford Messi, pork roll Pelé. Heat map Jesus is my guest on an incredible pod. This Wednesday can not wait for you to hear that beauty that's part of our Budweiser American Dream series. And one more question on this topic, please. Chase hailing from Des Moines Iowa supporting the reds. You'll never walk her alone, is this weekend for marsh the last march for the Americans team and leads when they inevitably lose the Liverpool Raj. You need to let me know. Oh, chase. I hate this storyline. It wasn't meant to be like this because it causes me so much personal pain. I'm not going to lie. I saw what happened to American coaches and their reputation after bob Bradley Liz trust at Swansea and bob Bradley is a great man to be honest. They who put in the time. He took risks. He walked a singular coaching path Egypt Scandinavia, France, and this is an important topic because I'd say American men's coaching is the single loss backwater of our game in the United States, talked about this in our amp at length, more of our top coaches need to leave the comfort of America, which is a coaching backwater and sharpen their tactical acumen by learning from the best in the best leagues to do what Jesse did to take apprenticeships in Europe. With teams that will have them learn and sharpen and improve and all who care about the future of the men's game in the United States, they do need American men's coaching to take a step up. So Jesse is fighting a good fight. He's fighting an important fight because if he fails in the conservative world of football, it will take time. Again, look how long it took after bob Bradley for in another American coach to get a nod at a big, big club and let's not lie Jesse's in a very tough position. So his failure if he does fail. And by the way, let's take heart at how broad and Steve Cooper two guys who are very much on the ropes have rebounded and essentially leads played Liverpool, Bournemouth, spurs before the World Cup break and I do believe Jesse needs four points out of those three games. Put another way, he has at least two more games, two losses on the bounce, losing to Liverpool, and then Bournemouth it would turn leads fans anger up to Aston Villa versus Stevie G level mutiny. That is the stakes. And again, I'm in some agony over this and I just say godspeed to Jesse. He's a wonderful, wonderful human being. And I'm feeling bloody nostalgic for happier days. And the great square ball. And he sent in a submission, you can probably tell that his were sent in on the Sunday evening. And I think he'd think he'd had a nice day. Wow, what a death. 8 years old, Ellen wrote basically a who knows at this point. A little bit off and that's the best one of the lot. I love it all in a little bit all of marsh. I love that little combustion. I love Rodrigo, the wells gray striker in the in place. I love that little young budget. You know, running the place. Tyler Adams. Flag on him. Oh, yank badger. There are a few things we love in this world more than football, but one thing that comes close. Burning. And books. And books about birding. And how do we love to consume them via

"Aaronson going and getting it. On the America partnership Chelsea and that will be a goal first leads goal for Brendan Harrison. The pressure literally paying off fully united. And Ellen road Iraq's. I've lived out Brendan's goal over 12,000 times at this point, the ball, and then these feet in that heat is not many players that would have decided, yeah, you know what? I'm going to use up some of my energy to charge him down. But port roll Pelé just swept in. And you were on the field, tell us Tyler, what did you witness? What did you experience? Previously to his goal, Brendan had lost the ball that then continued him to run through. It's so crazy because I have obviously had that opportunity to play with Brendan at so many different levels now, you know, we're such good Friends now as well and chemistry is just there and I was on the complete same wavelength as him because as soon as he lost the ball and he started running at the goalkeeper I said he's getting something from this play because it's Brendan is so tenacious and the way that when he counter presses and when he starts to pressure you, it's not very easy to dribble by him. Like he's just very scrappy. He'll either value or he'll get a kick on you or something and I was like Mindy, I hope you don't take another touch right now for your own sake and you know he took another touch and I was like, yeah, Brennan's got him. He's so quick around the ball like that. That's the exact play I want it to be running at the goalkeeper in that situation. So I was super happy for him because that one finally counted as his goal. But yeah, he deserved it. You can't take that bastard away from me. Dubious goals for no long finish. Who has the swag to do that in such an incredible minute of their life? I look back at it after, and I think it was my dad that texted me. He was like, the Brendan doing no look finish. I had to ask them after he was like, yeah, I did, and I was like, you're ridiculous. Never do that again. Incredible moment. Really, for American men's football, a young star soaring scoring. First time in our nation's history, under an American coach, Jesse marsh, there on the sideline, just letting it all out pumping his pelvis like a Wisconsin Elvis, Major League Soccer, what did you say to Brendan in that moment? Do you remember? We all jumped on top of him in that moment. And I was just literally screaming in his ear. You deserve it. Like you deserve it. It felt like a long time coming, especially after two Premier League games before that, and he had a couple of chances. He didn't get the one against wolves, and you know, he's just been working hard on that. He got the goal, but your game, 62 touches, two chances created 5 ball recoveries, man of the match. And at the final whistle, a game in which you dominated, watching you walk around Ellen Roode. Sure off with an American flag on your shoulders. Can you describe the emotions you experienced in that minute? Your excitement, to be honest with you, achieving my dream to have the opportunity to play in the Premier League, especially against those big teams. That's the reason that you want to come to such an amazing league and sometimes you get a result and you're like, maybe we got a little bit lucky or anything like that, but on that day it was just so deserved. We had played so well the team, the 11 guys on the field plus the subs that came in just made all the difference and we were able to compete with one of the best teams in the world. So I had happened to give my Jersey away and the kid threw a flag at me and was like, okay, I'm giving you my Jersey you're giving me an American flag. I'll take that trade any day and have the American flag draped around me was able to walk around the field. Affirmation, relief, joy, also what's a level of exhaustion after one of these? I was really excited still. You still have so much adrenaline. I thought that the next day, I felt that the next day. This is now famous photograph of you, Brendan aronson, postgame, standing on the field, talking, I think that football way of talking where you have your hand over your mouth with Christian Pulisic of Chelsea. Take us inside that moment. What did you guys talk about to be able to play against some of the big teams and be able to see Americans on the other side and be able to compete with them? We're all fighting for the same thing, right? We all want to be the best at whatever our maximum potential is and play for the best team that we possibly can represent our country at the same time, but we're also all good friends. And the American soccer community, although it's growing, it's still really small at the same time. So we're all very close knitted. And we all have good relationships with each other. And yeah, we're just talking after the game chatting it up. One guy's in the Chelsea number ten Jersey, one's in a lead united number 7 Jersey and yeah, I mean, I'm in number 12, but I'll take it. But listening to that, there is an element of normality to you. It's another game. You've all played each other before. But even for you guys, there is something remarkable like look at us here. We started off back in the under 14s the under 15s dreaming big. There isn't even an element for you guys at holy crap. Look at this. Look at this. Like on hot wings. It is a normality because we understand that we have the quality to do this. We know and we believe in ourselves to do that. But I'm not sure everyone is on the same page as us where it's like Americans can really do this. It's almost like you need to continually prove yourself improve yourself and prove yourself again. It's nothing new for us. You know, we continue to try to defy the odds and we're going to continue to try to do so. So that's fascinating because Brendan's immediate reaction in the interviews postgame was just to look at the British canvas and say yeah, it just goes to show people around the world that Americans can play football too, you know, or we're out there and we're playing well. We're playing for English from really team and getting goals and assists. So we're out there we're doing well and on the coaching side of things too. So I think it's only up and coming and there's going to be more and more talent over the future and it's a great start and it's only going to get better.

"I listen to this story. Former D.C. United player Jesse marsh is an American coach in the English Premier League. Now, not sure if he does speech is like Ted Lasso does in that series about an American coach in England. You know what the happiest animal on earth is? It's a goldfish. You know why? No, got a ten second memory. Be a goldfish. I'm not sure if he's tried. The goldfish speech, but do certainly know. A competition tonight is tougher than ice cold beef jerky. Yeah, that was the case on Sunday. They competition, Chelsea, a power, maybe tougher than ice cold beef jerky, but marshes legion united team with a three zero win because as Ted Lasso, he has belief. I know what this group that will never be at work will never be outrun and now I'm trying to help them understand how to be not be out thought. And if we can, in our way, continue to build that the right way, then we can really build something special. And you know what he's doing it with the U.S. men's national team players, Brendan aaronson, and Tyler Adams and his lineup. In fact, Brendan Harrison scored in that widower Chelsea.

The more you get to do routes or whatever it is with him, they understand your body language, understand what you like, you understand what they like. He comes a lot quicker so today I spent a lot of time during the special teams periods catching passes from Carson since I've never done it before. I'm not sure if Thomas will be ready for week one.

"You get your podcasts. All right, enough Newcastle, and enough city. Some quick hit, do it. Leads you not here to hammer Chelsea three nil and Tomas Tuchel is understandably grumpy blaming individual mistakes and also an unavailable plane. Don, is that all there is to it? Just individually. Did you hear what you said as well? We would have better side. Thomas Tuchel said we were the better side. You've just been thumped at leads and you come out with a better side. They have started the season slowly apart from the Tottenham game. I thought the average in the first game against Everton, they looked way off the pace. Looking at the numbers and I'm not really a stats man, but Leeds ran 14 just under 14 K more. So when that was put to, he said, that's not important. That's not relevant. That's Jesse marsh, who believes in the data. That's not important. We hammered man united the week before. Yeah. I think running around more than the opposition helps if the opposition can't play through you. It's not the field and end goal, but it's worrying. That's like having an extra player. Extra player runs about 1112 K I don't know. I think their main issue is they didn't move the ball quickly enough. And in capitalize on their chances and the individual mistakes. But you still got to give a lot of credit to leads. Yeah, absolutely. So Jesse marsh, Tyler Adams, Brendan Harrison, plenty MLS. What a performance and they're brilliant, and they? Yeah, so I was curious about this because inevitably having three U.S. guys so involved in it, three MLS alums as well, right? And by the way, we have a story, Tom Hamilton's coming out with a story spent time up at Lee's united can you give us some insight on how Jesse marsh is doing it. I don't know that the MLS angle significant, I think, just as significant as the fact that all of them played or were involved with the Red Bull organization at some point. And it's very much in the DNA. Obviously Tyler Adams coming from lights in aaronson had been a Salzburg. Jesse marsh coached Salzburg, coach Red Bull New York before that type of work Tyler Adams was, but was before that. So I think having these very fit, very athletic, very smart, very aware, younger players will give that energy. I think all this helps. I think he's done a good job too. The fact that in some way, that was already there with bielsa. He, I think, is added in other layer to it in the sense that they do run a lot. But I think it's more focused. It's not a bunch of one to one battles. So it's just going to say Jesse Marshall took them away from that one V one defending. Man marking all over the pitch, which I never ever would thought would have worked ever. You can mind Mark someone who means very quickly. I got asked to man more pros and esky ones and he tore me to shreds. Let's not go there. Still giving me nightmares. And the president's getting is now in his 60s, so here we go. Imagine united host Liverpool in a few hours as we record this on a Monday morning, but dawn. They've been busy. Casimiro is on his way according to reports he's done a medical and that they're only waiting on a Visa for him. How much has he moved the needle? Not much. And that's not doing him any disservice because one player can't move the needle out much. What I do think gab is I remember hearing the news about a week ago and I thought fantasy there's no way he's leaving Real Madrid champions here to go to man united, no disrespect whatsoever, but you're giving up Champions League football. I thought he was comfortable at Real Madrid. I didn't see the move happening. Fast forward a few days. Now that he is going to sign, I think what it does is it sends a ripple out their garb because if you're trying to sign Anthony and Frankie Deon, they're looking at man united bottom of the league, thinking no chance. You get custom era in if you're frankly diong now or Anthony, you might be thinking, oh, hello. Well, hello. We'll get to Anthony later. We'll get to look. He's going to make them better because Casimir is definitely simple as, however, if you talk all about philosophy project, the Ted hog way and stuff. Casimir hasn't been playing the Eric and Hogwarts. He's been playing a very different brand of football around Madrid. So are we just abandoning this project now, just going for talent? No, I don't know. I think you'll want that number 6 where he's got a bit of presence. I think he's got it. I mean, talking customer a Real Madrid destroyed cell to four one Turing. In that role, played well, didn't he? He did after kind of a rocky start. But I think he showed that he has all the tools for that role. And look, this isn't what he was doing at Monaco. Monaco, he did a bit of everything. Here, assuming enchilada keeps the same the same setup. And he might not. He might go with tremendous and somebody else in front. I don't know. But he definitely has the personality and he has the intelligence and obviously the technical ability to. But it's a position I think that you learn over time and you still just 22 years old. It was interesting in this game because they got so much down the left hand side with Vinicius was simply simply devastating. I think there's other things you need to check elsewhere. Eden Hazard missed the penalty. I'm not going to help his confidence at all. How does he do it? I'm moderate yet a special leg. Like, you know, he's basically stopped time is what Luka Modrić has done at this stage. I do wonder with customer guns. Just going to throw this out there, no good banging the Cristiano back to the Bernabeu drum all summer. I maybe won't be him, but they've lost four players from last season. And they've only brought in two. I think they're a little short on bodies now. I wonder if they're even though they said no, we're done with the transfers. Wonder if they might not have something up their sleeve between now and September 1st.

"Don't want to hear you need a little bit more of the old me because how I felt like I was developing was felt like the right path. But in terms of when I had time to reflect on it, that conversation helped me tremendously. Just that reflecting process that sometimes you need someone to tell you in order to understand exactly what they want and exactly how to get the best out of yourself. The old me is finally coming back out. You know, I have this confidence I have this arrogance to my game again and yeah, I'm a little bit of a pest on the field. After hearing tactics in German for the last four seasons, how much of a joy is it to hear team talks in Wisconsin I language? It's much better to hear his team talks in English than in German, especially his character. So I'll take those for sure. Schnell schnell. Oh, Jesse is not the only fellow American there of course. Leads also signed Brendan Harrison from Red Bull Salzburg 6 weeks before you arrived. How much Brendan are you currently seeing? Is it like a Burton Ernie sits you that? I'll be honest with you. We played 18 holes this morning on our day off right before this podcast. I'm seeing a lot of Brendan. It's so refreshing to have him here and be on the same journey as each other, bounce ideas off of each other when you need something you have an American there to support you and everybody knows that the American support is better than anything. So definitely happy to have a friend like him here. For walkers imma say, can you just talk us through the round? Oh my God, walker's Zimmerman. This guy thinks he's the best. I swear, once he sees me again, the amount of golf I've been playing. I'm taking my game to a new level. I'm gonna get a club deal off of this and nice endorsement and he's gonna be real frustrated he's gonna be coming to me asking for a club soon. To the Liv golf tour is about to be imminent. Can you settle this debate for us, by the way? Should Jack Harrison also be considered an honorary American? I don't know, he's American. I tell him that all the time. I claim him already. He's part of the American squad, and he likes to hang out with us. I know he does, even though he loses his English accent every time he talks to us. So I love it. God, Greg, get on it. We hear about locker rooms, like Chelsea's, there used to be divided into like a bazillion faction over here, a Spanish faction over there. Are you guys conscious of being almost too connected to Brendan and Jesse and being seen as an American faction, or is it just not something that you think about? To be honest, it's not something I've thought about at all. You know, me and Brennan are so close before coming into here. So it's not like this made up thing where we're in the locker room and we're only hanging out with each other because we're American, but definitely in the beginning and especially in preseason I made a conscious effort of getting to know everybody speaking to everybody, but the team here is unbelievable. The mentality that the guys have, how they are as people and how they've allowed us to settle into the group has been something that I couldn't have expected at all, especially coming in and having to compete with some of the guys, of course, you know, they've really allowed us to settle in on and off the field. So I'm definitely very fortunate. I am fascinated once you signed for a Premier League team and before you arrived, you do your due diligence. Do you check in with Americans who know the Premier League like Christian Pulisic? Get their insight and fascinated by how you mentally prepare. It's no secret that that was my dream to one day play in the Premier League. I said that back when I was in New York Red Bulls so you know when I first had signed there that my ultimate goal was to end up in the Premier League no matter what it took. And I was making the transition to come here. You know, I did speak with people, not so much about the league, but more about what life is like in England. So I spoke with Christian I spoke with Ethan horvath who had been around Zach Stephan these guys and their first response is it's a lot more like America. That's all you need to know. So that's calming and that's always nice. Well, voice did they give you from a footballing perspective? To be quite honest with you, I didn't ask anything about the football and perspective. You know, for me, you know, I had the opportunity to play against a lot of English Premier League teams in Champions League. So I have that experience of what it's like to play on the field against the best of the best teams of just watching the league growing up. You know that it's going to be a grind every single weekend and I think I've watched enough games not to kind of prepare myself a little bit mentally. How do you all communicate is it an Americans in England WhatsApp? We're going to have to make one. It went from the Americans in Germany to the Americans in England now. So we're definitely going to have to set that up. What's it like walking into a new locker room a whole new social culture? How do you feel emotionally? And do you have a strategy for how to play it? Just go in there and be myself. You know, I get along with so many different groups of people. So I'm definitely easy to talk too easy to be around. I saved my sense of humor for when people get to know me a little bit better. But yeah, settling in, it took a little bit of time because, you know, I came here to the hotel, signed and then I think I trained two days and then was on a 24 hour plane ride to Australia, which was also amazing for me because this was my first real preseason tour to see the support from the Leeds fans in Australia was something I could have never imagined. Getting off the plane after 24 hours and landing in Brisbane and seeing how many lead supporters were there. I was like, I was like, what the heck? This is unbelievable to see the support that they had. I mean, it truly is a global brand of a club. The away support for legion united is famed across England and you've said that the lead squad itself was so unprecedentedly welcoming. And I know that they do an initiation song. I think Brendan aronson said that he sang baby by Justin Bieber to become a fully fledged squad member. Can you talk us through your choice and how all that goes down? First off, let's just talk by saying they haven't done this initiation song thing since I don't know when Patrick Bamford told me, yeah, we haven't done it in like four years, but you guys are gonna have to do it. And I'm like, oh, interesting how, you know, we come and then all of a sudden now we have to do it after four years. Let's start it up again. As soon as I arrive and I'm like, thinking of songs to sing and I didn't think there was anything better than party in the USA by Miley Cyrus. So as soon as we went out, we had a team night out one night on the water in Brisbane, and they told us, yep, time for you to say who wants to sing first and I was like, I'll just get it over with. So I stood up on the chair and went all out, felt like I was in the shower, just jamming out to party in the USA by mollye Cyrus. God, you lose lyrics, hopped off the plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan.

"Player really is a pure love for the game type of player and a player I think does anything will do anything to fit into that system and succeed and I could honestly see it happening. He's not just mister football and medic as, huh? He's mister run it back because specifically that's when he started to pop, right? Like every single week we would see it. So to the question is he ready? I think he's proven it. If you're getting a goal, if you're getting an assist every week, every other week, you're being productive, you need to be challenged at another level. So I think Brendan aronson is pretty clearly here ready for the jump to the Premier League. My questions aren't really so much about Brendan aronson. They're more a little bit about leads and specifically this situation because you could look at it. You say, it's ideal, right? It's a manager who knows you, Jesse marsh, bringing you in. You can also look at it and you just talked about how the media treated Americans, specifically Jesse marsh, so you're now going to have an American big money signing under an American manager on a team that's American owned and probably by next year going to be even a bigger percentage. American owned. They better not get off to a slow start because you know who they're going to blame, right? Absolutely. And he's going to be one of those marshes marsh players. Like we've seen oftentimes in other places, surging, you're addressing cumin. Ronald cuman, he ended up being around a cumin guy, so when things went array, or I excuse me, he was one of the first players to blame. That's going to go with Brendan Harrison as well. But I think he could manage these expectations and listen for Jesse marsh. There are no excuses you had the excuse of this isn't my team. I came here and abandoned situation. Stop the bleeding, help this team stay afloat. Now you've done that. Now you will have a situation to put out your own team, make your own signings, and this is a big one for you. Yeah, final thought on aaronson. Sure, what he does in the Austrian Bundesliga is impressive, right? We saw it every week here on run it back. I think you remember what he did against Bayern Munich, right? In the Champions League. When you saw him at that level, when you saw him in that level, you said, okay, this guy, this guy's ready for something else about something else is the Premier League and leads boy, would.

"Now, before we do that, we have to deal with some of the harsh realities, and that is like I mentioned the injury situation. So let's roll through it, JJ, you tell me, as I go through some of these names here, how devastating these could potentially be or not be. No mat Turner, he has actually, for whatever we want to say about Zach Steph and Turner's actually started in goal for 8 of the 11 games in this cycle. I don't love that at all. I really don't, but the manager has already made this decision. Were they both fit? Stefan would be starting. Well, but he's just coming off of an injury spell as well. I guess we'll find out. So before that is a net, then we'll find out and realize that, well, that might have been that might have been Turner. I was going to say wheedled, that's not the fair word to say, but he's wormed his way into the nodding on fire, starting 11. And he's made the most of it. And played well against Liverpool. So I like horror too. But not ideal, definitely not. Not ideal. No sergino dest this happened over the weekend. His 212 minutes per goal involvement is the fourth best on the team behind only attackers. Peppy Ferreira and pulisic. Bald progressing, skillful defensive attacking, he's a big last. Definitely, he gives us, we've seen him give us this team goals. He's also so capable of creating and he gives the opposition defenses huge problems. Big loss. And then we came to find out over the weekend that Brendan Harrison suffered an injury in the warm ups. There was loads of confusion around this. First it was, he still traveling to the U.S., he'll be day to day, and then it was, you saw Taylor swam and tweet, no, no, no, this is two to four weeks. Forget it. And then shortly after that, officially, what was it a partial tear of the MCL? Yes. Which I think they're saying is a three to 6 week injury, which it won't require surgery. Yeah, that's that sounds light to me. I was almost relieved to hear that, but our worst fears realized he will not be a part of these three games as well. A regular and ever present almost. Below. No question. No question. And again, compounds the attacking versatility of the side to lose him and death together. That's almost a package of wool. Yeah, and then finally, the last one which we've known about for a while, but now it's now it's taking form, no western McKinney, who is, I mean, I know that there was the weird start that he got off to in qualification, but I would say over the last several months, you can make a case he's been the best player on this team. One note, him and McKinney and aronson, only two players on the team with ten or more shots and 20 or more recoveries in this qualification cycle. That's a lot to lose. So yeah, and you think about that, I mean, I'm really just zoned in on Thursday night. So you think about that Mexican midfield and having them go the other way and having that kind of that kind of attack and you look at those three are not emissions, those three. Absences. Yeah, it's not good. It's not good. No, we go again. We go live to Joe Girardi for comment. It's not what you want. Not what you want. Yeah. But what do we do? I mean, we have to have, we've been told there's been depth in this side. We've questioned it at times, particularly Canada away. The team did not function. We have to just roll our sleeves up and get on with that. And at the same time, be anxious. It's going to be a rough few games. It just is. Just from a nervous tension standpoint. I mean, the performances might very well be there. We hope they'll be there. And the results too. But this, yeah, it's enough to make you make you worry. I agree. You know, I still do understand very much the argument of that it's still a good team. Like, look at all the players, they're still good players. But these are not bit parts that are suddenly missing. You know, these are guys that are reliable pieces that have been pivotal. For the U.S.. So if you're nervous about these injuries, you're not wrong. You're not overreacting. You're not crazy. Like, this is a bad time for this to happen. Undoubtedly. Now, let me be Chubb's Peterson. Here's what we have to feel good about, JJ. This is important. We have to do this. We're still really good. Let's start with pulisic. So the last time we saw him playing with the U.S., something was off. We all talked about it. He even talked about it afterwards. But then he got the goal, and then he went back to his club with Chelsea, and he's been really good for them. He's been one of their better players over the last, I don't know, month or so. Important goals in the Champions League. He's doing his thing. So now he's coming back to the U.S. and he's in the kind of form that we always wanted him to be. So feel good about that. He might be the best player in the team and he's playing really good soccer at the moment. So let's not disregard that. That's important when your best players are playing like your best players. You know, look at we're spending so much time on the guys who are hurt and rightfully so. But like, don't let that cloud who's now back. Gio reyna is back. Yes. Really important. And not just important to have him back. He's been back for burrus doorman. Maybe he came back even quicker than we thought. And he's played well for them. He's immediately re acclimated himself, assists, and now he's coming back to the U.S.. Like, yeah, we have some players have been lost. But don't let that discount the players that are returning. So I don't know exactly what he'll be able to give them if this will be three appearances in a substitution role. Maybe one game where he doesn't play one where he plays all 90, one where he's a sub. I don't know exactly only bear hall to right now and the fitness team there for the U.S. know exactly what he's going to be capable of giving them. But, you know, as I'm going through all this, just remember, like, Panama is the game that matters. So if that's the game that he can give you 90, like Mexico and Costa Rica, high profile games, that would be great. You need to win Panama. And so like Gio reyna returning and playing in that game is hugely important. And then Tyler Adams, still here, Tim weah who's been vital in qualifying. Still here, Anthony Robinson, who we've said is made himself indispensable. Still here. On those of you who wanted to see Jordan peacock, possibly you're talking to one of them. He's there. Right. And look, looking at fullback, the dust injury, like you mentioned, it sucks. Like, that hurts because he's important in both attack and defense. But like, we're not talking about him getting hurt before the World Cup group stage. Like I just said, we're talking about beating Panama. All right? Yedlin, canon, Bello. I'm not trying to be arrogant here. Those are good players. They're all good enough to achieve that..

It's bloody good. We just need to work out how to get there Nikki. Godspeed. Are you going to go to the game next week? Unfortunately, not I am actually in my final semester of grad school. So I got to be honest that night. What are you studying? I'm studying data science. We need you. This country needs more data scientists, keep us in the loop on these green rooms, Nikki, how the data science post grad work is going because it's a deep importance for the national future. God speedy, you thank you for your wonder. And we'll miss you one room in Minneapolis, but godspeed. Next one up. A man out there. Thank you. Academy with three names. It's a sciatica. Hello roger Devo. First time oh man, first time caller first time listening or a long time listeners. Please be a first time listener. You wouldn't be on this crop initiative. Yeah, you're probably right, actually. I'm calling from Los Angeles, California. Beautiful. Yay. So we're in LA. I'm living in south Pasadena. Yeah, yeah. Can I just say this la area? Near the rose bowl. Yes, sir, actually, not too far about 7 minutes away walking. Wonderful. 1994 history, why is your question you beautiful human being? I have a question about Brendan aaronson and the prospect of him going to leads united. I saw the report earlier today and I'm curious to get your thoughts on how he fits into the team. If he were to go. He's good at football so he's an asset. What would you say? Yeah, I mean, I must say that he's definitely he's quick. He he's active. The kind of player that bielsa likes, he's smart, he's intelligent. I've been, it must be terrifying to some extent to go. So you just know you're going to run and run and run and run and run. And I worry that in the relegation fight that they are certainly in right now. I worry that, you know, he's going to be completely exhausted by the time we get to the summer and then through the beginning of next season to the World Cup. But I like the move for Brendan Harrison. I like the move for any American player to get a lead united and plan to be also. Yeah, I mean, we'll say Benton is a very, very, very good footballer. A legit, with a minority owner seem to be a majority owner, the San Francisco 49 is ownership group. They won a need in American player. You know, sample teams in the Premier League marketplace. They want an American player and Brendan Evans and happens to be a player that you can actually buy for relatively the upside compared to the outlay is massive. And you look at Brendan Owens and I think he's a phenomenal footballer. I think his ceiling is massive. He covers tons of ground. American fabrizio Romano Tom BoJack reported this week that Philadelphia union coach Jim Curtin said, he's got data. Probably from Nicki that he's writing in his analysis. A post grad parenting covers more ground than and this is not like I have a T-shirt to my left on the floor in my office that says Greg goose and water covers two thirds of the world and brag goose and covers the rest. I think statistically that's a joke T-shirt, a very handsome T-shirt. And I love breaking his hand, but statistically, Brendan aaronson covers more ground than 19 9% of global male footballers. So I'd say that puts him in the category of individuals who will love a game of murder ball. He's fantastic. I mean, it's quite a jump. It's quite a jump from saltzberg to lead. And the Premier League is this bigger jump arguably I'm making this up as Dallas to Augsburg. But I look at him and I do believe that there's a new ceiling on Brenda Levinson. There's a footballer. And I would love to see it. I'd love to, I would love to see that kip thrive. You're a beautiful human being. Thank you for that question. We're going to take two more good gorgeous ones. And that's Don steel, pulls himself out of Frankie hydroxy crankcase and comes be with us, but God love you. Glenn, tell us where you are and what your question. Am I going to have to do my Glenn in personation? Glenn Dowling, take yourself off me, you gorgeous human being with the war pig icon. Hello. Glenn, hello. You can. Well, you thought I should have learned the first time. No Christmas music this time. God's speech. Question. But where are you, Glenn? Oh, I'm in San Diego. It's not sunny here. It's very dark. Oh, but are you just trying to say that? You know, the U.S. soccer schedule a match in your city. Everyone's just trying to tell everybody that the weather is terrible in their cities, a U.S. software will come. I think they call it night. There's a plague of frogs in our city. Yes. We love frogs falling from the sky. The game there. We have burning bushes and everything. Yeah. Good question. As much as I am not a Chelsea fan back in the day, they had a pretty hard team. And I love the Dutch national team and they've had some hard men in the middle. The United States needs somebody that's, you know, maybe not there so much to play soccer just there to make a couple tackles, maybe kick somebody in the chest from Spain, you know, every once in a while. You actually do need Jermaine Jones to leave the punditry realm and come back into the U.S. team..

"That's what it's called. Yeah, all those things. NBC sports soccer network dot org. Yeah. And he's a good guy. And I like him, but he's like, well, you know, he's going to make more money. Yes, he definitely will. Like, his life-changing money compared to what he's on in MLS, but he's not going to play and Nicholas was one of these advanced the idea. Well, he's facing top quality players and taking shots on him in training. No, goalkeepers have to play. It's not the same training will never be the same as games. It's a unique position. It's not that unique of a position. And look, there are examples which people will be furiously tweeting towards this. This podcast right now of where goalkeepers weren't status for their clubs, but were starters internationally and they were Sergio Romero's the big one took Argentina to a World Cup final. Right. It didn't last that long. You want your goalkeepers? Do you want your players to be starting? And the goalkeepers know different and that's a worry for me. Is it a great move to go to arsenal? Yes. I get it for him. I get it for him, but it's not good for the U.S. as far as I'm concerned. I mean, look, would I rather him be playing regularly? Of course. But I do, I can see a little bit of how a goalkeeper can maybe remain sharper as a number two in a way that an outfield player I'd be more concerned with. No. Then he got it too. The modern goalkeeper isn't in this isolated position like it used to be. Modern goalkeepers really involved in things. He's not running up and down the field. Look at how it yeah, but look at, look at how involved the modern goalkeeper is that all the top goalkeepers we think of are playing with their feet. They're getting touches on the ball. They're under pressure. You don't get that same kind of intensity in training. You just don't. That's why it's training. That's why it's practiced. And we already know Turner is a goalkeeper who is not exactly the best with his feet. If he has won Achilles heel, his heel is his foot, bear with me. And he needs to play. It's not that we've seen a ton of Stefan, but you know he's the U.S.'s number one. He's played as their number one through the bulk of World Cup qualifying. He's been Manchester City's number two for a while now. That's been his role. When I watch him play, to me, like, from the time he was with Columbus to the time he was to him being with Manchester City, I don't feel like I'm looking at a player that's gotten worse. I feel like he's I'm still comfortable with him as the goalkeeper and he's been in that number two job for quite some time now. If that, if the sudden drop off is going to come because he's not getting regular minutes as the first team keeper, it hasn't come yet. So I don't know. We'll see. Who knows? Maybe every guy is different, but to me it's not, again, it's not a end of the world scenario. But we'll see if it happens. Hasn't happened yet. Any other takeaways, JJ, from this team? I think obviously the boost your absence is unfortunate. We've been talking about that. I would just say with Tim ream. He's been slowly phased out by Greg. You feel like early Greg had leaned on his experience. And he ended up even in left back, left fullback a couple of times. But that era seems to be drawing to a clause. And that's more veteran leadership that's being moved out of the squad, despite Fulham going really well and him starting every single game. His last game was El Salvador in September. That's the last time he started, and he was in the squad the last time that September again in the four one away win in Honduras. So he is being kind of fizzed out. There's one other thing that stands out to me before we move on. 13 MLS players who have not been playing football for some months now. Greg says that January camp will have bridged that fitness gap and sharpness gap for them. I'm not so sure. I think it's a look at someone like Brendan Harrison. They've been on break he hasn't played in 6 weeks, Virginia odes. He hasn't played since December 4th, I think, through COVID and injury. Yeah. But they would have but they would have had organized trainings with their clubs in that. I mean, MLS is only in pre season and apart from this January camp, how much have they how much have they done? That's in a group setting in a team setting. It's a concern. I don't know whether it will end up mattering, I don't know. The things for me seeing Jordan Morris back in the squad just gave me good feelings, JJ. He is one of Andrew's people. He's one of my people. I've got the jingle yet Andrew. I've even thought about it. Can you work on it, please? Nope. No, I'll get to it. I'll get to it. But yeah, I was very happy to see him back in. JJ Weston McKinney, Greg bear halter said that he's what was the quote. He's probably in the form of his life. I'm excited. I mean, if that is, in fact, the case, which it seems to be right now with the way he's been playing at Juventus, I'm excited to see how that manifests itself with the national team. And then the only other thing that was interesting to me talk about rim not being there, Anthony Robinson is the only true left back that was included on this squad. I'm going to play three games in a week. He ain't playing three games in a week. So it's going to be some experimentation time. And I guess desk will be the guy who will probably audition for that left back role. His versatility his in terms of ending up in any position where he's needed is going to be tested. I would say. Yeah. So I'll be interested to see that. And I'll be interested to see who becomes, you know, who is, you know, I assume when all things are equal, if everyone's healthy, Robinson, on the left, desk on the right, when desk moves over to the left to give Robinson some kind of breather. Who is the preferred right back to fill in for desk? Because I know Regan is now starting again regularly at Bo vista. We don't know Deandre edlin. It sounds like it's headed back to MLS. That's not definitive yet. I thought I even saw that whole city. We're interested in the outland, but it looks like he could be going to Miami. So we'll have to wait and see. He's on the squad. I'll just be, I'll be interested to see who what the pecking order is of right backs for this. When you think yedlin has had enough of weather in the northeast of England, you know, Sunderland, Newcastle hall, like he wants to go somewhere else. You know, coming straight from the heat of turkey. No. Are Miami and.

"Element. I look at Ricardo peppy up front, you brought him up when you've got a 9, you can score goals regularly, but guys, it's Christian Pulisic for me. It just is because when pulisic is playing free of thought, not worried about injuries and allowed to be himself and express himself in the final third and to play in areas of the field where he wants to play, not playing as a wing back at times, even though argued playing wingback for Chelsea's better than not playing at all, my point is the United States men's national team needs Christian Pulisic operating at a high, high level, if they're going to do anything. Because Giovanni Reina is going to come back healthy, Timothy way is going to be a great option. Brendan Harrison's a fantastic option. But Christian holistic is the guy. And if he's not operating at the level that we saw at the end of 2018 World Cup qualifying when he was playing at a high, high level, even 12 months ago when he was playing and then got injured in the FA Cup Final where he was playing really well for Chelsea over two months. I don't think there's any I don't even think there's a debate. If Christian Pulisic is not operating at a high level, the United States has a real issue. Yeah, I will concede about the U.S. having an issue of Christian political operator at a high level. I don't know if it's form his form heading into this is really an issue. He's played over 800 almost 900 minutes in 15 plus games and the last two months. So maybe him not playing last game, getting a break is a bit of a relief to me. I'm more worried about his health because he's not proven to be durable, but heading into this window, I'd have to go with the player like sergino dest. That's who form really worries me because Taylor, you just touched on.
