"We wanted to take a look at a guy like Eric Palmer Brown because John has the body of work that we've seen. So to me, it's a question of, let's see where John ends up. Let's see what club he ends up at. Let's see how his form is throughout the fall. And then we can evaluate. You say you want him to work on a few things so he can better fit your system. What is it specifically you're looking for? Because I see a good passing left foot and back with that's a physical presence and has a lot of experience. What exactly are you looking for? Yeah, so what we've discussed, again, I'm not going to share everything I talked to John about, but what I'd say is that we want to play with a very high line. So ideally if he went into a team that plays with a high line and we can see that every week how he's dealing with space behind him, it would really help us get a picture of what he can do for our team. So he hadn't been doing that. I believe the games he did do with you. He may have struggled a bit, Switzerland, Canada, in the World Cup qualifier. So those were two indicators for you is what you're saying. Yes. I'm fascinated by that that you like, you know, when you talk to these players, you're kind of going through very specifics. Those conversations. I mean, that's happening not just with John Brooks. I'm assuming with everybody. How big a part of your work right now is that because you're not really with these guys like hardly at all. But we're watching every game though. And weekly conversations, is it like, how does it go? It's not weekly, but we'll check in with the guys and we'll say, okay, how's it going? Focus on these areas here. But we also have to understand for a guy like John. To use it another example, he may be handicapped by the fact that Wolfsburg isn't playing it all like we want to play. And then we can only see him in this type of defense. And then we have to look for moments when he's dealing with defensive transitions. And we get analyzed those moments over and over again. And that's how we get an understanding of what the player can do in our system. I find that super interesting, basically, that you go to him and you say, hey, I need to see you do this. And it could be any player and that for a player that's thinking about making a transfer. That's obviously very influential. Absolutely. You want to go somewhere that I think totally mimics the national team because I want to get back on the national team. So let's talk about let's talk about Mexico. This for me is kind of the, if there's something on your resume right now, that I would imagine you feel best about. It's a turnaround in that rivalry. I was there in 2019 at the game in New Jersey. And I remember that press conference after the three zero, which was a couple months after the one nothing in the gold Cup final. And you were getting a lot of criticism there. Fast forward two years, and at that point, it kind of feels like Mexico's pulling away from the U.S.. Fast forward two years, Nations League, gold cup, winning qualifying, a draw that, I don't know, you probably felt like could have definitely been a win in azteca. I mean, walk us through that, what happened in those two years to go from the rivalry is heading one way to the rivalry is now heading, it feels like from the outside, the totally opposite direction. Well, a couple of things, I think the loss in New Jersey was big for us, really helped us. How? Because we learned. And that was the key moment. What specifically? What was your take away from that? So there was a number of things. I mean, we analyzed that game over and over and over. But I think a major conclusion is that we need the game to be a certain way to be successful against Mexico. That's what we learned from that game. And we applied it in the next games. And what happened was a big moment. So that was a huge moment of learning for us that helped us set a plan moving forward. And then the second thing was beating them in the nation's League final because it gave the guys that gave a young group of players believed that we can do it. I don't think there was a time. We weren't ready to win the gold cup that you mentioned in 2019. Even though we dominated the first half, we lack belief to actually win it. And after the nation's 8, we got the belief. But you did it with a different team in the gold cup. I refer it to that team as and I still refer today as a U.S. men's national team C team. 2021, you're talking about. Yes. I was talking about 20 years. We're not correct, correct. But now, after the nations that you can talk about that belief, but you did it with a different set of players. Yeah. Because it's belief. So that was the key versus Mexico's belief. It's the game being played out a certain way. Right. So we played that game the same way with different players. We made it very difficult for Mexico to play very, very little rhythm in game in that game. If you remember and we thrived in that. So if I were to ask you 30,000 feet above we're looking at Mexico, what's the key to beating Mexico this Mexico team? For us, it's just playing our way, playing, playing the way we want to play the game, making the game combative, understanding that there's going to be conflict in the game, understanding that there's going to be times when there have they dominate the game and being comfortable with that. And I think at times we got uncomfortable with that and that hurt us in the games. And now it's no problem. Whatever the game brings, we can deal with. Can we do some dosa saro history? Because you've been a part of a lot of us, right? You were part of one in Cincinnati. That's the latest. But you're part of some of the originals as well. Do you have a favorite dosa set on memory? It's obvious, right? What do you remember about that day? I remember it was hot as heck. It was 2 p.m. in the afternoon in Korean summer, and it was really hot. And I said to myself, it's going to be about who can withstand it. Who can withstand the conditions of that game? That's the team that's going to be successful. Is there a moment you knew you had them? Yes. When Eddie Lewis across the land and Donovan. They were two zero.

"Wanted to take this game as far as I can, so to be able to represent a club like arsenal is a dream come true. So from the national team perspective, obviously the player is going to do what's best for his career. How do you balance that? You want guys at the highest level, but you need them playing minutes, right? You know, I would always recommend to do what Matt did in this case. You know, he's a guy that was playing at heartfield college, right? Where did he go to school? I think it was hard. Yeah, I mean, yeah. But the point is, yes. Good Catholic Jersey. It's in Connecticut. Sorry, my bad. No, it's in Connecticut. The school that he went to. Yeah, therapy. It is in Canada. It's not in Jersey. Yeah. But the point is, is that, you know, 6 years ago, he's playing a Fairfield college. And now he has the opportunity to go to arsenal. You don't ever turn that down regardless of when at World Cup. You know, this is like, you know, I've talked to Bruce about. This is a dream story, man. You can't write stories like this. It's such an amazing story. I understand that, but it's still blows my mind that a player is talking about, I'm not thinking about the World Cup. I'm thinking about my career because usually the other way around, it's like I need to be careful of what I do because this is a World Cup year and this is a World Cup. It's the Pinnacle for any footballer. So that blows my mind on that just in general when we're talking about man Turner. This is the right move for you, because Ricardo peppy, we could throw out another example, World Cup year. He hasn't been doing so well. So this could be a move going to osberg that potentially jeopardizes his World Cup status. Yeah. And that's a decision that players are going to have to live with. But for Matt, I think this is a dream move. I think it's something that is a fairytale. You know, that he's all of a sudden, you know, at arsenal, one of the great clubs in English soccer, you know, from 6 years ago playing it at Fairfield college. I don't think Matt Turner fits into this necessarily but you also mentioned this on the gab in Jules podcast and that was that there's some players because we see this mass exodus of players to Europe and everybody gets very excited. There are some players that can make that jump too early. How does that then impact you as the national team coach? Yeah, and see this is much more interesting conversation to me because and what we've been doing for the last 15 years. Well, because Matt Turner performed best goalkeeper in MLS. He won the support shield with New England. He did everything he could do. He was crushing it in MLS. He was ready to move on. Right, get a national team looks. Exactly. Now the issue becomes when we have younger players that are moving to moving out of MLS when they haven't been dominant in Major League Soccer. Like a Brian Reynolds for example. That's the example you gave, yeah. That's a great George bellows. I can give another D.C. guy Kevin Perez felt like that. We just got to see him, and then he was gone. Right. And what happens is that then they don't get enough playing time. They may not make it there. I'm always a big fan of you crush the level where you're at and then you keep going. And then you go to the next level and you always find a level that you can play and you can build up your performance. Well, we see this example a lot with the Mexican players and the Mexican media in particular where they're saying like there's a process. There's a process. There's a cycle to this much. Fulfill this process. But there's the other side of that coin, many say, let them fulfill it somewhere else. So let them have better training. Let them have better competition. He will be better for it for being in that environment. How are you going to get on the field though? That has to be part of the equation. I agree with what you're saying until the point where where are they going to get game time? Because I don't believe it's good for a player to go to Europe and train for two years. I really don't. Personally, the decision I made was to go play in the second division of Holland. And I played every week. And then I went to the first division. And then I went to England, and I went to there's a progression that needs to take place, and that's part of it, game time. Okay. I think I may be the first person to actually bring this up, but John Brooks. Can we talk, John Brooks? It feels like every time there's a call up every time there's a roster drop, John Brooks is in on it, and you're getting asked. Where's John Brooks? He happens to be one of the most experienced players in the pool. I believe him and Deandre yedlin, the only two that actually played in a World Cup in this current pool. You said at first that you wanted to see certain things from John Brooks for him to come back to the national team. And then you don't call him up because he said, I know what he's about. I want to see other guys. So where are we with John Brooks? You can understand maybe the frustration of the fans with maybe any consistency or two in your comments. You know, the way I see it in the way we've been communicating, you know, me and John have had a number of conversations along the way. You know, he was in the September camp, had to withdraw from the October camp because of injury. I called him before the November camp. I said, John listen, you know, I'm a here are some things that are lacking your game that I don't see fit our game model. And then we need to address. And we move on. And we went to January and we got through that window. We entered the crucial window in March, and it wasn't time to bring him back, in my opinion. And now we go into these games in the summer where we wanted to take a look at a guy like cam Carter Vickers. We wanted to take a look at a guy like Eric Palmer Brown because John has the body of work that we've seen. So to me, it's a question of, let's see where John ends up. Let's see what

"What these guys go to now. And I just think it's different, right? That's what it is. It's just different. And to compare them, you know, okay, we had some things in our generation that were difficult and stuff. And our road maybe was more difficult, but the amount of pressure these guys are under nowadays, it's such a young age. We know nothing about that. You know, when I think about, you know, 18 year olds, 19 year olds, I was in college in 18 at 18. Live in a college life, you know? These guys are under tremendous amount of pressure. There's a tremendous amount of fixtures. I think it's a lot harder nowadays. And the game's got a much better nowadays. So I think it's, I think it's nostalgia that's playing the role there. This is your first time coaching a national team. You and I have talked about this before, but it's a very different rhythm from coaching a club team where you see the players every day. You've got continuous feedback, now they're at arm's length, and then when you get them for international breaks or whatever, everything is concentrated. Yeah, and that was the biggest learning curve right there when I took the job. You know, I was really intent on building a strong culture of the team. And people say, oh, it's not a club team. You can't build that. I disagree with that. I still think you could have a strong culture with the national team. But from a playing style standpoint, it is getting back to basics, keeping everything really simple, because you have no time to train. And that's been the biggest learning thing for me since I took the job. And that's been a great process. How do you fix that? How do you do that? I think, you know, especially with COVID and these condensed windows and three games and 7 days. I don't think there's much to be fixed in terms of saying, okay, we're going to have more training time. But in general, it's doing workout, it's doing more work outside of camp. So it is doing videos with the guys from their games, what they're doing with their clubs, kind of integrating into what we're doing with our club say, for example, Eric Palmer Brown with twice playing three in the back. We say, okay, we have this idea we're going to build with three year plan in the middle. These are the passes that you're already making with your club that we can see you making with us also. So kind of priming them when they come into camp. Second thing, you know, it's not my job, but I think there should be some look at the calendar from FIFA and say, you know, how we scheduling games. What are we doing? Is there enough time for both? Because everything got jammed up in these last couple of years, for sure. And it made it really difficult to sustain. And the players are who I feel bad for the most is because these guys are, they're burning at both ends. You know, they're going with their club three times a week, then they come to the national team and do the same thing. And it's tough. It's really challenging. You know when you took the job, was there part of you, did you have to think much about it? Did you hear no brainer for you in the sense that, yeah, this is amazing. I mean, I don't know how you realize what a great generation you're going to have and work with and all the optimism and the great momentum and the dynamic and everything. What part of you thinking this is a high pressure job, this is a pressure because you also competing with other U.S. sports, not just not just other soccer countries. It was a very simple choice. My heart was always telling me to take it. As being an ex national team player, you get this opportunity. And it's hard to turn it down. I have a lot of love for the national team. Played for the national team for a long time. And seeing where the national team program was, I thought there was an opportunity. You know, when I made the initial started making the initial depth charts and I'm looking at the players, it was tough in the beginning, man. It was tough to say, okay, how are we going to how are we going to get out of this? This is the player pool. No, really. Because you're talking about 2018 at the time. You know, I'm interviewing for the job in 2018. And you know, you have guys, you know, Georgia was about 15 years old at the time. 16 years old, you know? He was in a depth chart, but it was like, asked, you know, hopefully he keeps progressing. It was that type of stuff. You know, Tyler Adams, you know, Christian was already broken through. But there was a lot of guys that you could say, okay, these guys are full established great young great players. So you had to be patient and part of it was having belief that these guys are going to develop into the players we think they're going to be. And then you start thinking about excitement. That's the next level. They say, okay, this group can really do something. We could have a quality of player that we haven't had yet in America. You said you've had obviously a long history.

"Like if it's longer Richards and it sort of seems like that is the decision. Again, we could be wrong. You give them to long then. You give more time with the guy you think is more likely to play with Zimmerman. And then CCV can have a moment in El Salvador, but I also just think he hasn't been around in him not being around. I don't know, that says a lot to me about where Greg sees it. So the only thing I push back with that is it's the same with scally where, yeah, during World Cup qualifying, there was no time to test it. And once people were in, they were in. But this is the chance. Like you don't want to waste this moment and say, in September, well, camera card record has no reps. Well, that's all Greg berhalter at that moment. If he thinks that he's a player that he wants out there on the field. But I agree with you. I think it goes long and Richards in this spot. And so now you're saying, well, is the guy who's the third option at this position, the one that I should be giving the minutes to in this moment. For what it's worth, I think Carter figures is gonna play some in each of these two games. For sure, for sure. But I feel like right now, the center backed up chart is probably Zimmerman number one, Richards when he gets healthy and playing. Number two, long number three. And then I think CCV might have pushed ahead to be number four. I mean, we'll see. But I don't think it's a given that long is going to start on Friday, or I don't think anything is a given from this group other than Zimmerman being the number one on the depth chart. I think we were sort of debating really depth chart right there. Yeah. We talked about it could be a B plus team for Greg, could be a beat. Quote unquote B team, then that could mean that this is a good opportunity to get CCV that rep or to get Eric Palmer Brown that rep and just say, hey look, this isn't. We're not going to be under a ton of pressure. It's not a situation like Uruguay where I have to see you against Darwin Nunez and all these guys that have real pedigrees that we're going to see at the World Cup. So yeah, I mean, any way he goes on here, I'm not going to be upset about any of it. I know no one cares about what throw it out there anyway with grenade it. They do have Jamal Charles. They do have Carlton belmar. They do have siobhan Brown. They do have threats in the attack. And so there will be, I think, a good test of if they do sit deep encounter, there is one V one defending to be done there, and I think it should be interesting to see how they handle it. Also of chari was coach, they wouldn't bunker. He was Barcelona of the Caribbean. Their team was so good. And they've taken so many steps back since he left. Sad that we won't have you on that watch along, Dave. It's very sad. But in spirit, if bellison doesn't get mentioned, we write Anders. Okay. Okay. All right. How about midfield?.

"The game. And it's sad because this was a bit of a homecoming from him. He grew up in that stadium in this case. He playing for SKC. This was a game you know he was chomping at the bit for, but it didn't go his way. And a lot of that is a bad day, but it's also repetition. You don't know who you're playing with and as a center back. It's so important. The communication, the repetition, the flow, the balance, and that's not there with these center backs because they've not played together. Yeah, I got to go stock down here too, of course we saw the play in the highlights where Diego Rossi put him on skates. I don't know if you also saw the highlight there at the end. I don't know that we showed the entire build up or maybe the best angle of it, but the great chance for Cavani at the end. Walker Zimmerman goes to win a ball, and you would think that the other defender should cover in behind. And what happens there comes right where Zimmerman was, Palmer Brown late to react and it's an easy two on one that Uruguay doesn't finish almost. I think by luck right there. On top of that, we saw what he was on the ball. There wasn't that confidence. So I look at a guy like Eric Palmer Brown. And again, huge opportunity and it's missed, and there was chaos hurt in that second half in the center of defense. So if you're also evaluating it from Greg berhalter's perspective, you're not just evaluating Eric Palmer Brown, you're evaluating the partnership and to your point, clearly the partnership that looks like the one partnership right now is walker Zimmerman and Aaron long. You set off the top. You pointed that out. Do you have a problem with that? I would love to see Chris Richards, so yeah. Yeah, absolutely. I think Chris Richards and my eyes is in the driver's seat. It's walker Zimmerman and then somebody else and I believe that somebody else is Chris Richards. All right, so plenty more discussion. I'm sure throughout the coming months about the central defense. But.

"Player like Christian Pulisic, running out the back line, Uruguay right there. Outside the end, good little shot. He was being persistent at least. Scoreless at the half, this is the beginning of the second half, really one of the, if you one on one chances we saw from Christian Pulisic throughout 56 minutes. Yeah, this comes. This comes off a throw in, you can't have that happen, yet when sleeping there and then look, Eric Palmer Brown, that's a very compromising ball. Christian Pulisic gets stripped, Eric Palmer Brown again, not really reacting. Thought he was going to bring him down here if I'm being honest, good little bonding. No. Who knows? Wow. Wow, an unbelievable miss. Yeah. And his defense, I have no defense. You've never missed one like that. Hercules go messing up, correct? I miss some bad ones. Not one like that. It's difficult? Sure. It's on the half bounce, but a player of his quality you would have bet to put that one in. Now do I did not have the same finishing boots on that they had and some Mexico, that's for sure big save here from Sean Johnson, probably his best of the day. Yeah, Sean Johnson more reactionary, if you will. Brendan aronson got caught here, look at Bren aronson and keeping the line on miscommunication between Eric Palmer Brown, walker Zimmerman, there are at least two players who could have had a go at that. Sean Johnson stays big. This is probably the ball finding Sean Johnson more than Sean Johnson finding the ball, but that's good positioning. Man, he's throwing his hat in the race for goalie. I'll tell you what, look out. All right, 68 minute here. And we got some controversy. He's a friendly, so we'll give you a few more subs than usual, right? But we got to cut it off somewhere 6. Who do I took 7 hurt? Are we getting cake out for gunman ball at this point? A little bit of both. Diego Rossi. Didn't want any of Diego Rossi right there. Oh Diego Rossi for old time's sake right there. This is supposed to be a homecoming private problem with brown. Not one of his finest moments and then Diego Rossi. A little bit earlier. Yeah, and how about walker Zimmerman coming across there and making a big play into stoppage time and here's the last great chance through the why. I don't really know what Nunez is thinking or what Cavani's doing. I mean, what was happening there, hurt? Well, I feel for Kavanaugh because this goes right off of Eric Palmer brown's calf if you want to also Cavani in a very kind of surprising moment, he just kind of swings at it, but that way no you just gotta hit that on gold my man. All right, here's Greg, they're after the game..

"I'm not blaming Doyle on that. I'm saying, I think that's the wrong way to assess that. I think I agree with you, the one thing I'll add two things. It's royal Antwerp. And the other is we've already gotten really far afield from who's a locked in starter. We can agree three of the four on the back line. Zimmermann in central defense dust and Anthony Robinson. Then it's a question of who's the partner for Zimmerman. I think it's going to end up being Chris Richards. Why? Because even when miles Robinson was healthy, Chris Richards was starting a lot of games. I think from October to the Canada game when Richards got her, I think he started like four out of 6 games. And that's one thing. So we already know he's played in the pressure cooker of qualifying and in berhalter clearly rates him. He also has reps playing with walker Zimmerman, which matters. And on top of that, I just think he's the all around most talented guy in the center back pool. Like he's not quite as dominant in the air as long as I don't know if he's quite as quick, but it's really, really close on that one. He's also much better passer. So I think he reads the game really well. So I think that he if he gets healthy and can stay healthy and he gets minutes, I think he is the most likely one to be starting alongside Zimmerman in the back line. Any thoughts on what long showed in these games and in particular Uruguay? They need demerits, any big positives, Doyle is right. Like just as far as aerial dominance, he's very, very good in that sense. I think he's good as a recovering defender as well. I don't think he scrambled well, we be. I'm saying I'm saying, I'm not saying that. I'm saying as a general player, I think that you're talking about you're talking about Uruguay only or you're also talking about Morocco. About Morocco. I think he was a little bit his scrambling around the box. It was effective. But it wasn't, he still looked a little bit rusty. He used to be really, really good at it. So I'm still attributing it to having missed a year of soccer and it's still maybe working his way towards it. But he's much better than Eric Palmer Brown. And he's much better than Cameron Carter Vickers. So it's like, to me, he's clearly the third guy on that depth chart after Zimmerman and Richards. I'll just say that the motorcycle revving in the background of.

"U.S. men continue their summer tour tomorrow as they take on Uruguay in Kansas City. And speaking ahead of the game, Eric Palmer Brown and Tim wear. What kind of opportunity does it provide for you guys such a young team to be able to play a team like Uruguay, who's been in the knockout series at the World Cup, each of the last three tournaments. I think it's going to be amazing. I mean, a lot of us are young and we're still getting that experience against these high level teams. So I feel like playing a team like Uruguay that has a lot of stars is amazing. It's for me it's a dream come true. It's what I've always dreamed of playing at such a high level against the best. And that's what this opportunity proposes. And yeah, we just have to, like I said, stay focused, stick to our game plan and go out there with a lot of heart. Even though it's a friendly, we want to show that we can be serious about it. Like Tim said, these are the moments you dream of. As a kid, playing these games, playing these big moment games. And to go out there and Kansas City, it's going to be an amazing feeling to go show what we can do against a quality opponent. Great bear helps us already announced his starting 11 for the side, the most striking addition went to McKinney back for the first time, of course, since picking up that injury with Juventus. Casey Keller will be joining us on the next edition of the show to reflect on that game between the U.S. men and Uruguay. Be sure to join us. That is it. That brings us to the end of today's show. Thank you very much for watching. Be sure to stay tuned though. Natum is back as is Jan, but a big revelation in extra time, spoiler alert is how much Stevie paid for a birthday cake for his granddaughter. You wouldn't be able to guess it. While.

"What? You, you've come on here, you've said this, but you can't find the article. No, the article, it's a world soccer talk, article that's quoting from the daily mail, but I don't see the daily mail article. Oh boy. Okay. Well, while you search for it, I'll close us out just by saying a couple of huge, well, really big international soccer matches happening this week. Obviously, the U.S. are in action in Cincinnati on Wednesday, they host Morocco. And this is we're kind of in it now in terms of, okay, like we're in the World Cup, so those big matches of consequence are behind us. And for a lot of the squad, they know that these games are about developing chemistry and sort of just like fine tuning. But for a lot of guys, these matches now are it. This is, these are the tryouts to get on that team and with spots opening up. You know, obviously miles Robinson's injury, that presents an opportunity for someone. You know, Eric Palmer Brown, guys like that. Like this is a real opportunity. We'll see who gets slotted in next to walker Zimmerman. But you know, one thing I saw over the weekend, Georgie Mahal, which is going down with an ankle injury. I felt terrible for him because he's 23. He's hitting his prime. It's all happening for him. Sports is all about timing. And he's hitting it just right. His prime, World Cup year at the end of the year. Like it's all kind of coming together for him. And I'm not saying this is the end of anything. He might have just misses this window, but like if it's fine margins that are going to decide who makes this team deeper down the bench, availability is going to be key. Bear holters got to get a chance to see these guys and how they kind of work with the players around them. So that was a tough break. I really felt I felt genuinely bad for him when I saw that he had to withdraw from the squad. They're not replacing them. I'm still 26 men on the squad, but I can't wait to watch it and start to get a sense of guys who are whose stock is going up going down. So that'll be interesting. And also U.S. related JJ. We're going to finally start to get a sense of how this group for the U.S. is going to round off. As Scotland and Ukraine will finally play their World Cup playoff match this Wednesday. So boy, Andy Robertson goes right from the Premier League battle into a Champions League Final, and then a couple of days later, he's off to Scotland for one of the biggest, maybe the biggest international game of his entire career. He's this has been just like, he's going to wake up two weeks from now, just exhausted. Like it's all going to just hit that guy. But so yeah, so we'll start to get a sense. Obviously, the winner of that will go on and play Wales for the right to get that final spot the U.S. England Iran group. So American fans will certainly have a keen eye on that one on Wednesday as well. So a big week. Big week of international soccer to come. Have you found anything yet or do we just leave the people on limbo? Well, no, and this is what we're talking. The daily mail first reported the news that Peter jury is replacing Ireland white as the lead commentator for NBC's coverage of the primary league, subsequently sources to world soccer talk, confirmed the report is accurate. So that is Christopher Harris world soccer talk saying that that is an accurate report. Oh man. Wow. That's big. That's big. Well, our thank you to Arlo for all these years where he's been the voice for wow. And we don't know what he's doing. Maybe healing blocked me on Twitter now. He blocked you? Yeah. What did you do? To have that happen. Think he got the wrong end of a stick. Someone was accusing him of being on listenable when Leicester City airplane of being biased. And I responded, in fairness, IRL calls it straight down the line. He'll give you plenty of local knowledge on Leicester, but he calls it straight down the line and he just blocked me. I think I think it was in terms of a Twitter, I got hit with shrapnel. Okay. You were collateral damage. Collateral damage. That can happen. Well, whatever it was, I side with him. And I just want him to know that. JJ, this was fun. I'm sorry you're weekend ended the way that it did. It sounds like overall it was an enjoyable time for me. It was a great look, it was a great time and the match and the debacle around it. Obviously, but I'm back in one piece. I avoided some of the things that other people had to endure, so I'm okay. I'm fine. Let's get on with it. Well, there you go. We got a U.S. MNT match on Wednesday, which we're looking forward to. So still a lot going on, even though the club season has finally come to an end, still we didn't even talk about your other team Nottingham Forest is now back in the Premier League. We didn't even get to that, but just didn't even get to the championship, disgraceful, but I blame you for that. And we were rightfully torn to shreds by somebody I saw for not mentioning the Europa League final. That was poor by us. I want to say right now it was poor. That was poor. It wasn't oversight. It wasn't a great game. I'll give you the quick stuff. Doesn't matter. It wasn't a great game. Went to penalties and rangers were left crestfallen and Aaron Ramsey in particular. We all know by now. The point of this was for me to say that we were wrong to have ignored. It happened weeks ago, Jade. Now, when we've covered it now, covered. Okay. Well, hey, this was fun, man, to you..

"That's what it is. And miles Robinson who was a de facto starter on your U.S. spends national team is quite possibly out for the World Cup. We don't know when he will come back. Chris Richards is often injured. Mark McKenzie doesn't play. Walker Zimmerman may be your only player there. Cameron Carter Vickers has no experience with this used men's national team. Eric Palmer Brown, very little as well. There happens to be a player that has a wealth of experience. European pedigree experience in the Bundesliga who at one point was the highest transfer for any American in the world. Who happened to score a goal in a World Cup has World Cup experience. Aaron long is coming back from a torn Achilles tendon. It hasn't played much this season and you're still talking about other players. Just don't make an excuse as to why John Brooks isn't part of this. Let's just stop making the excuses. Give John Brooks an opportunity. Let people see him fell or let people see him succeed or say what it really is. Yeah, it is a snob. I don't know that it's much of a surprise anymore, right? And I get it. We're always when we talk about Brooks we're always talking about the reasons that berhalter's giving. One thing I would love for somebody to ever use in a defensive John Brooks is how he's actually playing. Some of you could be, hey, he played very, very well for Wolfsburg. If you're watching the Bundesliga every week and that's your take, fine. Or point to how he's played for the U.S. nationally. I never hear anybody talking about the first half against Canada or his performance against El Salvador. Nobody's ever talked about nobody has ever talked about the performances. One of the things, one of the reasons I believe there is that rift between Greg Berger and John Brooks, because in that first half he played poorly in that first half, he was also visibly seen questioning Greg berhalter and his tactics. That to me is the rift between them too. I don't have any proof of that, but based off of everything I've seen, that would lead me to believe. So berhalter talked specifically about John Brooks. He was obviously asked about it by the media in that press conference. He also hurt name checked three other guys who weren't injured, but were left off this roster to give him a chance to recover from their time in Europe. Ricardo peppy John Luca busio and James sands. Now, if I'm not injured and it's a World Cup year, I don't know that I really want time to recover. Certainly not if I'm Ricardo Pepe. So if we're going to talk snubs, I think we got to talk a little bit peppy. He's left off here berhalter had kind of warned us that this might come, but man, those World Cup odds for peppy right now are not looking good. I mean, Seth, would you have guessed this no talking about Ricardo Pepe on fire for FC Dallas? I mean, it was during Klinsmann on this show was said be careful what you wish for. Be careful where you go. Maybe the timing isn't at its best. And now we're talking about Ricardo peppy. Think about this. May not be a possibility to even make the roster in the World Cup. Think about this for a second. If you regard the Pepe, you want to be on this roster. You may not need to be on this roster. You may actually need a break. You may need to be mentally refreshed, but you want to be here. You want to prove yourself. And I think that's damning to Ricardo Pepe. All right, so we will see what happens with Ricardo peppy, not just in terms of the national team, but also his club future. Will it be another season of Augsburg for the young American? All right, so we got some new names relatively new on this roster as well. Guys who weren't really huge.

"They have been very interested in timbers manager geo Sabres. They have not contacted the timbers about for permission to speak to savarese. So nothing's new there yet. He's under contract for another year and a half. So if something progressed to the point where Portland would be okay with him leaving, they would be, they would have to be compensated by Vinci of four suburbs. Again, this is all way down the road right now. We're just an interest age. All right, let's talk you some in T roster, no gog swinging to there, but big news. Sunni committing to the U.S.. I think between now and our last show. Anybody have thoughts on that? I mean, I'm happy for him to have made a decision to do what he felt was best for him to do what he felt, as he said in his statement that was sort of in his heart. He had a lot of push and pull there, obviously the Polish federation coming out to Chicago, doing the full court press on him, and I think Greg brear halter and his staff has shown a really good capability for sort of meeting people on a human level and just saying, hey, you make the best decision for you. You explore all the options you can. And if the U.S. is the one that you want to take, we are here. And we are ready to bring you into the fold. He's not in this U.S. MNT roster and I think Greg said form was the reason why that's understandable again he's a 17 year old goalkeeper. He has a lot of growing to do and sometimes removing distractions can be the best way to grow. Any thoughts on Gaga or the roster here, I mean, it's sort of the guys that you would expect. There's nobody no crazy additions. I mean, you could point to Cameron Carter Vickers who had a great season at Celtic, you can say okay, Eric Palmer Brown, but he's been in. Those two seem like guys that'll compete for a spot that miles Robinson would have filled Joe scallions here, so maybe some of the very vocal folks on Twitter can quiet down for just a little while, but oh, they won't because there are some players from MLS. I was on this team. Georgie's in, which is a great thing. Malik Tillman obviously, which I don't think we've talked about from Bayern Munich or Bayern Munich two, whichever you want to define there. But this is sort of the guys that you would expect to be there. This is a camp not to only see new faces, but to integrate a few new faces while getting more reps for the guys that, you know, that Greg trusts and knows and will likely be considering for that 23 man roster. Yeah, I would say, and I think most people would agree outside of maybe Malik Tillman, there are no names on the roster that are surprising. It's more the people left off. What was the limit? How many guys were you going to call? And I think for all of what I've read and talked to people about and talks about myself coming into it, there were more names than I thought we could see. Rather than saying anyone here is surprising or doesn't make sense or there's not reasoning behind it. I mean, we basically knew Cameron Carter Vickers was coming in because Greg said it a few weeks ago. I think we all expected Joe scally to come in for the reasons he's talked about. How'd you write has scored the goals? He deserves to be there..

"Care if it's on both sides. I don't care if it's on one side. Put that aside. All that BS and it's John Brooks right now. You need to facilitate something for John Brooks to come back into the organization into this program and you get fast track them because he could be your starter or he could be a very important cog or a very important piece come World Cup time. You no longer have the luxury of just saying talented players are out the window. Couple quick questions here for you, herc. Who is in the driver's seat to pair with Zimmerman from the list that I'm looking at? Is it Chris Richards? Yes, this is Chris Richards. It's Chris Richards and you can slice up Mark McKenzie and Aaron long there four and 5 however you want Kramer Carter Vickers in. You can put Eric Palmer Brown. You can put in a map miyazu, whatever you want, I don't care. Okay? It's one, two, three right now that I am worried about. All that other stuff is subjective and people love to break them down and love to do the power rankings of whatever. I don't care. Concentrate on one, two, three, because those are gonna be the ones who are gonna be your main cogs or most important players come World Cup time. You already have a situation where you don't know who you're 9 is. Or they have a situation where you don't probably know who your goalkeeper is. Now it's the center back tandem. U.S. mustache fans can't catch a break. Another quick question here, because the reality is that John Brooks, whether you want him in or not, may not be under consideration. It might not be in this list. So if you had to take Brooks out and I'll give you some I'll give you some options here for who you can replace them with other guys that have been in or around the pool. Who's getting that 5th and last spot in your top 5. You got names like Eric Palmer Brown. You got Cameron Carter Vickers, who I think you mentioned. Somebody like Tim ream, who like it or not, will be a Premier League player next year. He just got re upped at Fulham. Probably a Cameron Carter Vickers or Matt miazga would be my two guys, but why are you trying to take John Brooks outside? Why don't you like about John Brooks Seb? No, it's nothing that I don't like about John Brooks. I'm just looking at the reality of what the national team manager has not just done. Let's look at the reality of those things. With his call ups, but what he said, he just told us a week ago. Dropping like flies. That is the reality. The only context we need here. He just told us a week ago, he would rather take a look at Cameron Carter Vickers than John Brooks. Look, we will leave the center back discussion for now. Let's talk about the surface herc on which miles on which miles Robinson was injured on Saturday. That artificial turf at Mercedes Benz stadium in Atlanta. And as I mentioned, it's not the first time that we've seen it, either on turf in MLS, this past week we saw it in Seattle with Joe Paolo or specifically in Atlanta. We saw it not in Achilles, but a knee injury with Brad guzan earlier this year. It was Achilles. Okay, how big of a problem hurt? How big of a problem is turf for Major League Soccer? It's a, it's a huge problem because perception is something that Major League.

"Berhalter live at Estadio azteca, let's listen to his postgame press conference. The next game just Panama. I'm looking forward to getting back home and playing in front of our proud moment. Thank you. Thanks, Greg. We will start with Stephen Goff from The Washington Post. Getting this point on the road, you certainly have chances to win it. But now heading in, heading into the weekend. How do you feel about your chances now about qualifying? Not just the next game up mentality. You know, we'll get a group on the field that competes on Sunday, looking forward to having a home crowd. And we're getting close. We knew, obviously, this window is going to put us into position. It's either qualified or not qualified. But the valuable point on the road, looking forward to getting back home. And having good performance. Yeah, so be parts and Oreo from the athletic. Thanks, Michael. Thanks, Greg. You talked about some of those missed opportunities. Do you still feel considering how much energy they poured in the way that they were kind of throwing themselves around them late? Does it feel positive in the group right now to get the result or do you think the mentality will be in the right space going into Japan or despite feeling like maybe we could have gotten three points here? That's not categorized. The group is jazzed up their site with a good performance. We wanted to we wanted to be the first painting to be Mexico and we felt a little bit short, but the mood's not down, not at all. It's the opposite. We know that we're going home. We know we're playing in front of a great crowd in Orlando, and we're excited about that. So the spirits are up. Again, I can't say enough about the effort of the guys to expend that much energy and altitude like that was phenomenal. Next would be Henry Bush now from Yahoo. Yeah, can you Greg, can you hear me? Great. Just wondering were you aware were you guys or your staff or where of the Panama result or the Panama score when you came out for the second half? Or was it too early for any of that? No, we were aware of it. Gotcha. Next would be Ron bond from The Associated Press. That they were aware. What I write with Deandre out for Sunday and Reggie cannon uncertain. What does your right back depth chart look like to bring someone else in? Who do you have now? Did you consider there? Well, Eric Palmer Brown was still in and right back and we know that's not his true position, but Shaq Moore is in Orlando as we speak. And he'll be joining the group. Next will be grant wall. Hey,.

"You can feel good about the build up. No. It wouldn't matter. 77th minute, JJ Reina, so he came on after not having played for this team since the initial qualifying round comes all makes the nice pass to P fock should have had an assist and now in the 77th collects the ball, I mean, pretty much at his just outside of his own box. And this guy goes on a run, I kept thinking, okay, where's the pass? And you don't see it, and then he kind of dribbles past a couple 'cause, oh, that's nice. Okay, well, where's the pass? Still no pass. Not no one around him, so he just kind of keeps going. Around more guys, still no pet. I mean, this goes on when Gio reyna, you know, a year from now has a Nike endorsement deal and they're making a commercial. This is the commercial. This run that he makes. Just doesn't lead to anything, but sometimes, you know, and one mixtape. Goes right on there. And U.S. Twitter, U.S. soccer Twitter has already tweeted it out and it's going to be the highlight of the night I would think. Great, awesome, slightly concerned that there was, I mean, dribbling was his best option at that point. There wasn't a tone on for him. But what was interesting to me was, and in the context of what happened after that, there was a lot of tired legs out there that couldn't keep up with the freshness of raina. And I think that is the point where you go for the jugular. Now the jugular should already have been severed from the two chances before. But we could have still got at the jugular and done some severing but that was not the course of action that the manager took. After that, and no, yeah, this was the point where they kind of now slid into, okay, let's preserve this draw mode. Yes. 5 on the back. And let's just get out of here with a point. We had our opportunities. We didn't get them. Let's not get burnt now. And 79 minute lozano gets a chance. Nick's one off the crossbar, huge save from Stefan, although the ref didn't see it, it should have been a corner. They gave him a free kick. But that was, you know, that was a warning shot there. From lozano, 80th minute, now you start to see changes, bear halter's clearly seeing what's going on. Guys are exhausted. We got to get fresh defensive legs on there. And Eric Palmer Brown comes on. What an introduction into a moment like this in that stadium. With that scoreline with everything at stake, Aaron long comes on after his torn Achilles back. Now yedlin, Adams go off. I mean, this is what a moment that these two players coming back to the team are thrust into. And sure enough, 82nd minute, another chance for lozano, this is now like now I'm scared. U.S. clearly looking tired, the pressure is on. Now Jordan Morris comes on in the 84th, Christian Pulisic, who was exhausted. He goes off, 88th minute, a huge clearance from Aaron long. U.S., like I said, clearly playing for the tie one more moment of real fear Alexis Vega in the 90th goes down in the box. You couldn't tell right away, but the ref was all over it. Yeah, and he should have kept going. He should have kept going. He was the right side. Yeah, I thought that too. Yeah, he was the right side of Jordan Mars. He should have drove on. It was the wrong decision. He felt contact Mars did make contact on his back but not enough to give a penalty. Yeah, yeah. It was getting nervous there and one of our listeners a message on Instagram caught offside ESPN. I think the change to the back 5 and getting rid of atoms invited too much pressure. I do feel that we were kind of inviting them on now, like I said at the top of the show, you have to feel at some point that Mexico will have their purple patch there, their last kind of gas attempts to try and strangle a window to this game. And it did happen. But you know, I think there was that moment where I think it was Sanchez went down the right, he cuts it back. It gets deflected behind Stefan and Aaron long clears it. And then of course, what you mentioned, the blast from lasagna right before the substitutions where that clipped the crossbar, but generally speaking, I thought that the U.S. were more than firm. They held more than solid in that defense. Yeah, I mean, look, if you want to question their decision to, for the last ten to 15 minutes or so, maybe play for the draw, you're free to question that, I suppose. I understand it. There were guys who were tired out there. But in terms of whether or not they were inviting pressure, that that happened, but they held up. You know, bear halter brought on defensive guys who did their job. And they did get out of there with the Daniel nail draw. So yeah, tonight, tonight won't be the night when I'm really gonna have many criticisms of Greg berhalter. I really thought that the team played really well tonight. So props, props to him. In terms of specific guys that I would kind of give a round of applause to where I thought, you know, I mentioned this before Anthony Robinson was his usual self. I thought just he continues to be a rock for them at that left back position. I mentioned miles Robinson got off to that shaky start, but then settled in. I thought him and walker Zimmerman did their job, repelled pressure, lots of clearances. I thought they played well. Tyler Adams, again, kind of just consistently doing the things that Tyler Adams does. And then the two guys who were reintroduced tonight Gio Reina in a cameo appearance, I thought that was just what a boost for his confidence. He gets out of there, a healthy, no kind of health scares or anything like that. And makes a real impact in a short amount of time. I mean, I think immediately reminding everyone about what we've been missing with him not there. Calm on the ball, the run, the past to P fock, all that stuff. I'll bet he starts first Panama. I hope he does. Especially with waya out. And then Aaron long, you know, welcome back. Again, was brought in in the thick of pressure when they needed an important defensive change, and he made a couple important defensive interventions. So that had to feel good for him too to get back out there in a big moment. So I think guys who needed to kind of reprove to themselves even, okay, I'm good. I can still do this. Those guys did that tonight. So you wanted to win the U.S. played well enough to win, but I think there are a lot of reasons to feel good about what happened here. I would be going over a lot of ground and repeating just what you said in terms of some of those selections. I would just sing a little cost in atoms in the midfield. I thought they had an excellent night. And it wasn't as dominant performance as the first night in Columbus, the winning Columbus against Mexico, I taught it was both sides, I thought both sides struggled to connect a lot of passes together. I thought it was scrappy, but in just the context of the game I thought the U.S. did just fine and more really, really unlucky not to walk out of the Aztec or with a bag full of three points because that's how you get the three points in bags. That's true. That's a good point. That's how they present it to you afterwards. So looking ahead, like we said, no, yadlin, no way, no Reggie cannon, add him to the list, apparently I'd seen initially he had an inconclusive COVID test, but then tonight they said he tested positive. So know him, no canon as well. Obviously all the other injuries that we knew about Shaq Moore added to the squad. Good chance you see him..

"When you're calling in the and by the way, that's only because Chris Richards is on the men. This pretty much tells you everything you need to know. He's on the outside looking in, this is his national team future, or his career, and before our very eyes, except I don't think I need to tell you that's what's happening. If you feel differently, please tell me, but I think it's evident. No, we were on the conference call today with Greg berhalter. A longtime friend of both of ours. Basically pointed out that if you're looking at it from a numbers game, Brooks at this point is 8 hurt. 8th in the center back, death chart, and to your point about guys like Aaron long and Eric Palmer Brown. We have not seen them in this qualifying cycle. Some through injuries, some through form or whatever you want to say it is. But it really is shocking. Now, Greg berhalter did say that this does not determine Brooks national team future and when explaining the decision, he seemed to say that there are some details in Brooks game that they can't fix by this window. So do you think that given the time after World Cup qualification, once everything is assured, and you have time to work with a player that a player Brooks quality really can't be fit back into this group. Do you really believe that? What details are we talking about? Because it's preference that he's talking about, not details, because he's 29 years old. You're not going to change the type of player he is. That's just doesn't happen. You're talking about preference. Because tactically, okay, my preference is tactically you don't fit into my system. What system is that? What are you looking for out of your left center back? The ability to pass, he has that. An aerial presence, he has that. Leadership, he has that because you could defend her. He has that as well. So what are you looking for? If you leave it so vague as to say we can't work with them in such a short period of time and maybe down the road doesn't mean he's not going to be with us in the World Cup doesn't mean he doesn't have a future. Are you just not stringing him along? It seems to me like you're just kind of feeding the press enough to keep this going and get out of your hair. All right, so Greg Barr holder did answer questions about John Brooks in his press conference. But during his appearance on SportsCenter with Al Duncan, they talked about a few other things. One, just how big these games are for U.S. soccer. And two, more importantly, perhaps the status of sergino desk. Here's the latest. You know, what we talked about in the beginning when we got this team together is trying to change the way the world views American soccer. And we're only going to have the opportunity to do that at the World Cup. So for us, this is another step in our journey. And we need to complete this step to have that opportunity to play in a World Cup. So it's a good type of pressure. It's an exciting type of pressure, but one thing I can tell you is the group is ready for it. It doesn't look good. It doesn't look good. What we're going to get to definitive results tomorrow. And this is one of these things where you're watching these games right before the window and you're holding your breath. And you're hoping guys are going to get through the game healthy and able to join the team and that's not always the case. So we feel bad for us to genio. And again, this will be a case of.

"Favor or helping Austin get to Europe and maybe there will be a loan like with Eric Palmer Brown that happened with Manchester City, but we'll see, but yeah, with the players going to these clubs like I think that George bell is maybe maybe he won't be the guaranteed starter for minute one, but Armenia Bella still has a plan for him. They really want him and he pushed this move because he believes that there's going to be playing time here and Bruce Lee go relegation battle. Let's zoom out a little. Look at this transfer window as a whole and some of the Americans headed over to Europe, starting with that human wonder. I have a crush on this man. And I don't care who knows it, Matt Turner, too arsenal, you reportedly go for $7 million in additional 10 million of add ons to move that you said arsenal really, really wanted. They wanted it to happen. ASAP, he's going to go in the summer, but part of you is surprised New England went through it for this amount. You thought they would have wanted more cash? Yeah. And that's the reason why they were talking originally about around 7 million for around ten, but the final fees going to be between 6 and 7 with add ons that would take it to just under 10 million because New England said we're not going to do a deal now and arsenal were desperately pushing for it and they said, okay, we won't, then we're going to make an offer that it's bigger if he's going to stay for another 6 months and New England said, all right, that's fine. And so slightly less money than they could have got because they claim that they need more time to find a replacement, which I'm not sure about because Emma is still in off season, your preseason started. But I think that there should have been plenty of time with the month for the season to go, but I digress. Yeah, are still really wanted them. They really like them. Maybe that's part of the reason why Burnley know how to stay and so maybe they were looking to get him gone on deadline day of natural was able to come now, but he wasn't. It's just a phenomenal story for Matt Turner going from Fairfield university to playing with the fourth year Jersey express in the summers so he was undrafted by New England undrafted and MLS signed with New England goes on loan to the USO championship. Finally gets a chance to start New England loses that and Brad Frito gets fired he gets the Bruce arena makes on this daughter again. And then it's brought free all the way up about goalkeeping. That's what I'm really sad when he turned up that very first day. I just love him. I love the way he sings the national anthem whenever the might take him up. That man has got the voice of an angel. I adore him. God speed make us proud now to the move that had all of America on peppy watch before the window had even bloody opened. Yes, el trend. Do you remember when we were all obsessed with him before the backlash to the backlash happened? Mercado peppy to Augsburg. 20 $1 million. Now, you said a staggering number of teams across Europe came in hard and had interest for Pepe talk us through what yeah, I mean, I try not to be hyperbolic with these things, but all of these clubs have them on their radar. I could just sit here naming a bunch of clubs like their name away. There were meetings with Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid. I actually really wanted them. They sent scouts guarantee to send scouts for the past year and a half. All of Syria has been interested in Dortmund a bunch of English clubs, et cetera, et cetera. The final four ended up being Augsburg, Wolfsburg, Wolverhampton, and another Premier League club that I haven't been able to confirm. But this was insane. Augsburg had the rhyme with shivers. I don't believe so. I think I believe that it was the opposite of Northampton. So fair enough. A Wolverhampton. He likes Hamptons, and he likes. His agents like, I love the Hamptons. Maybe we can go to Hampton's puffy point with the opinion in the shot when he pulled into the Southampton. But Augsburg. I mean, you naming clubs which genuinely anyone who has grown up with a teeth sunken into the goal movies would be salivating over Augsburg off the beaten path, pulled the trigger for a club record $20 million, a number that you've said you were surprised at the club could even hit, even more shocked. Really, that peppy, this 19 year old. It's still a raw talent in his own right still. You know, not a playing for the local club still. Dallas. This is a world away to take yourself to Europe's take yourself professionally into a very different locker room culture to place yourself in a relegation, don't fire a German locker room culture that explain the rationale for how this happened. It was a lot to do with an American connection, right? Yeah, the David blitzer whose group owns the Philadelphia 76ers is part owner for Augsburg, his group. So I believe that that's probably a decent guess to where a lot of the money came from because Augsburg. I think the previous club record for transfer fee was like 10 million. But peppy is realistic, part of his, you know, it's not just his goals. It's not just everything else that's making it made him a preternaturally talented prospect in world football. His mentality is a he knows that he's not gonna go to Byron and start overlong dashi or go to iax and start over Sebastian Holland. This is a family in an immigrant family that immigrated to the United States. He spent a lot of his time split between Mexico and the United States because he still had family and friends in Mexico and he lived so close to the border. A really cool story that came from this is as the interest was turning into real offers and real offers returning into offers. You can't really reject. As Dallas really wanted to keep them from another year, not just because of the first team in that he would be an important part of the team, but also because they believe his value would rise at the World Cup because they believe in them as well. They thought, you know, we could probably should keep them for another year. He just signed a 5 year contract, and as these bids were starting to come in and Dallas were starting to listen, Ricardo Pepe's father came to the club and had a meeting with them and said, look, the pepes are a family of opportunity. You can not guarantee me this opportunity will be here in 6 months. You need to let my son go. So that was kind of goosebumps moments that helped kind of push it over the line. That's incredible. The puppies are a family of opportunity. That is just a beautiful aspirational inspiration. The opposite of what the Bennett are really. When I think about it, but I do that story, breaking news..
