"So there's got to be mindful of what we're doing on there. That's all. And myself included, because I know I know I said some things on there. I wrote people the wrong way. So myself included, trust me. Hey, man, more people with personality, more people willing to share what they think. That's what that's what our soccer culture needs, not the other way around on it. Who's your best friend in the game? Best friend in the game. Probably Sebastian juvie. Interesting. Yeah. Very, very cool. My other question was the team that you had the most chemistry on the field with, and I think that probably answers both those questions, right? Boy, yes, that's amazing. All right, all right, Sebastien jovito. Best U.S. M and T player ever in your opinion. Ever? Ever. All time, all time, Clint Dempsey. I like the answer. I like the answer, most memorable goal of your career could be internationally could be club. I have two. I have three. My first goal ever, my first goal ever, I'll never forget that goal. Was it the bouncing half volley? Was it a bouncy out Bali? Was that the one that kind of had the little bit the left to right bend? Maybe that was a couple in. I don't remember. Back in the day. I know Bruce is threw me out of this hey kid. Get in there. You gotta go in. I went in there and bombed. That was my first goal ever. And then obviously the goal against Spain because I think that goal, a lot of kids at home saw the goal and I think moments like that are important for the next generation. I saw people come up to me today at my goal, whatever that moment did a lot for me. I think moments like that are huge and then cup goal for as an alkmaar against PSV in the Cup final because that was an incredible moment. I always wanted to play in a Cup final in Europe. And it may be whatever to some people, but for me it meant a lot to be that team on that day, which was a lot of good players. That was amazing. You know, both sides of fans, I was dope. We would do a whole other podcast with you just talking about your different stops over the years. We don't have time for that. So I have one more question. What happened in that tunnel in 2017 against the Red Bulls? Oh man, let me tell you something. Let me tell you something. And I still tell all the it was the referee was or the rest..

"And one of the things he was saying is, you know, guys like you and Moe and others looked at him and said, hey, man, I saw myself in you on the field, and he was saying, but this next generation what they're doing, they're taking it even a step farther. What do you think about black players for change about what's happening in the league about the minority hiring initiative? What do you think about the progress being made and maybe where do we still need to make progress? Because obviously we still need to make progress outside of all that. Yeah, I mean to be just point. I think that's huge, you know? There's nothing better than when you see a young kid coming up saying, hey, I watched you and, you know, you helped you were my favorite player and I saw myself and you. You know, that's amazing. You know, you need representation. And so you look at this new group and you imagine the kids across America that are watching this Virginia desk and western saying, you know, I want to go play Juventus and play for the night. I can't tell you how important that is because if you don't see somebody like you doing it, it's hard to imagine yourself doing it, right? That's just the world. So to see that is amazing. And these guys are doing exactly what they're supposed to do. Their flag was passed to them and they're making new strides. And I think it's not for everybody, but I think they've taken it upon themselves to do that. And I think that's what makes them even more incredible young men because I see that in Wesson every time he takes the field, he wants to set the bar even higher. And I think that's important. And to the other part of your question, you know, I think we've made a lot of great strides, but the questions have to be asked..

"Do you think you can make it into the team before the World Cup? Is that a goal? That's not even my thought process right now, man. It's not my thought process right now. I'm not even thinking about any of that. I'm just first of all, I love watching the games. It's kind of odd, but I've loved watching at home. These guys are young, hungry, they're going forward. And it's been really oddly satisfying watching them play and compete and have the run they've run so far and on the brink of qualification, you know, hopefully we can get it over the line and keep pushing, but I've been going on with you. I have not. I've had a lot going on in my own life with my own stuff and the biggest thing for me is just to get back on the field and just play. And the chips will fall for where they may, but I don't want to sound weird, but, you know, I'm a competitor, but that's really the last thing on my mind right now because I have to get myself right and just contribute to my team before I can think about anything else. No, not even a little inkling in your brain, not even a little dream or a little just like, not even that little bit. Everybody's a dreamer. You want to, of course you want to go into the World Cup some amazing thing, blank for the national teams, the greatest thing, you know, I've been able to do in my career, but at the end of the day, you know, as a pro, there are steps to everything. You know there are steps and first, I just want to be happy playing the song. That's all I want to think about. And I want to contribute to a very, very strong competitive team in New England and help one of them a less cut. And that's all it's on my mind right now. All right, I respect that, man. Gotta get the like you said and steps up the ladder. Let's talk about that team though because I see you on Instagram. I see you big up big up in these guys. And they are so fun to watch. Young brash at these incredible clubs, so much personality. Who, like, who do you like to watch? Who are the guys that you like to follow? All of them, man, I love watching all of who. It's hard to sing a lot one guy. I really enjoyed Weston. You know, Weston's a great kid when you, you know, when you meet him and you're around him, his energy, you know, he's a guy that's hard to not like. He's such a sweetheart. He's a competitor. And I just love watching Juventus constantly push himself, try new things. Whether it's his dribbling his passing, you know, he's really going for it in every way. So he's been tremendous to watch. Obviously Christian you know, I was with him in the national he was 17 and to see his growth, you know, he has a lot to deal with injuries and all these things. So to see him fight through those things and continue to have success. You know, it's so great to see it's hard to single out one guy, but like I said, you know, Zach, obviously, as well. Doing what he's doing at man cities is exciting. You know, I'm a fan of Luca Della Torres and Erdoğan and I love his style and I love that league. I think it's a very, very competitively. That's played at a high level. And I think you see that in how he plays..

"Whether it's whatever it is, business, the game, like get what you can out of it because it goes quickly. And you know, it was funny at that time, 'cause I was like 16, look at the thing of this guy. What are you talking about? You know? What do you mean by all that? But now I was like, get older, I understand it. You know, I understand that you got to be you got to make sure that you do everything you can do, whether it's playing, whether it's financially, whether it's investments, whether whatever it is, he always used to hint at these things and I was like, what is he talking about, but now I get it when I'm growing older, I understand that whatever it is you're doing, you got to try to maximize and get the most and the best you can out of it for you. And keep building forward whatever it is. And he was always working on a lot of different things off the field. He always used to say that. So it definitely hits harder now as you grow older and understand things in a different light. I see all these kids now following the path that you blazed so long ago and now feels like, you know, in the last is changing. And when you went, it was like, oh, you were you were this like shooting star outlier. We didn't have Josie outdoors running around. Now we got Kevin Perez. We got, you know, fill in the blank of this off season. You guys go into big European clubs for millions of dollars. What are those guys in for? First of all, you'd love to see it, man. I love it. I love it all. I try to, you know, it's so great to see because there's so much talent in this country and it's finally getting recognized and seen, you know? So shout out to all those kids parades. What a transfer for him..

"And so like I said, you're allowed to have difference of opinion. But there was a time where that game wouldn't have been played. You see what I'm saying? And so at the end of the day, man, you lose a little bit, you know? You lose a little bit for what you're fighting for and those people that you're fighting with are just, it doesn't become the same when that happens one, two, three, four times. In different scenarios in different ways, you know, it's not the place you walked into. And that's okay. That's life. That's sports and I'm learning that as a man, you know, as a father and all that, that's life. And so I hold no grudges, but like I said before. You know, I'll never forget, you know, talking to Henri, you know, who's my idol growing up after that game, or before the game. And talking for 30 minutes about life and we leave that conversation, man, I have so much respect for you for you for doing what you're doing right now. That means a lot to me. And that means more to me than the game on that night. And like I said, it was something that not a lot of people were privy to. It was only a few people on both sides, but when certain things like I told you happened that you feel as a person that it wasn't like that when you walked into that situation and it happens a few more times in different ways. It's hard to get out there man and just do what you want to do because you're out of people that just don't have that don't share that same vision as you. And it's difficult to be in places like that when that happens. If people that are wanting to know, what's.

"We're going to win. And I'm talking like, I'm taking my revs and Toronto if he had off just an MLS supporter is what I am right now in this instance. So what I would like to see is a team just said, okay, this is how we're going to build the team with as most experiences we can as most experience are guys that can play at that level because I think you need players that can play at that level when you play the league at max games, the stakes are high and the levels a bit higher. I'll just be honest with you. So I think that's what you have to build for. And I think one year I would love to see a team just put all the resources into that and trying to go for broken that competition. I know, obviously, then you have a leak to play in. But you're not going to get relegated. This is just again me as an MLS and looking at this. You're not going to get relegated so you'll be able to come back in the league next year, but obviously I get that there's ownership and there's other things and winning animals cup does, so I get all those consequences. But one day, man, I would love to see a team just go for broke in that competition and try to win it. But it's easier to have been done as we all know. How much does that night in Guadalajara just kind of stick in your cross still? Oh man, it's tough because we were right there. We were right there. We played so well. We pushed ourselves to the brink and people always say penalties of the crash, he's not a crashing man. It's not because I don't crap shoot. You know, I don't think our penalties were good. And in the end, that's what cost us. But we are right there, but it's still another element of quality of nerves of dealing with pressure that we just weren't able to deal with at.

"I don't think it's different. I mean, Bruce is a guy that he just demands when he demands. So whether you're 16 or 25 or 33, 36, it doesn't matter, I think the demands are the same. That's what I've noticed is really cool about him. He hasn't changed. You know, he just wants to get on the field. He wants things to be clean. He wants you to be professional and he wants you to push yourself and it's the same now. So in that regard, it's easy to work with people like that because they have a certain way of doing things that if you're a serious at your craft and what you want to do, you have no problem being around people like that. So I see a lot of the same things in Bruce and I think you look at the team. He's been able to build here and have a guy that responded to him. They obviously see the same things. Who does the best Bruce impression you've ever heard? I've heard a lot. My word a lot of fun man. It's gotta be somebody's gotta stand out here. I mean, Landon was pretty good. Landon just landed. You got a lot of time. Yeah, he had a lot of time with him. So but Landon was pretty good. He had just the voice and the pauses and the one liners. He was landing was pretty good. He had a good, I can only imagine. I have to get that out of him someday. Tell me what Bruce, what's the discussion about role? Because when I look at this team, you have two base two headed monster from last year, 15 goals a piece basically with buxom with Bo. Here comes Josie, you know you have that capability, books and might get sold TBD when Bruce comes to you and says we want you. We want it for three years. What's the discussion about role between you two? Yeah, I mean, the three years part, I mean, I had two years already with Toronto. And I know you know how the emeralds biopsy work. It's not like you just bounced, you know, I still have a contract. You know, I have to learn all that as well. So I mean, that's not really wherever I went, I was going to have to play on that contract anyway. So and then in terms of boo and boost, first of all, quality. Huge quality, both of these guys, just training with them and being around them, incredibly serious. Winners. And so you don't want to disrupt that, what you want to do is when you want to add something. And I spoke to Bruce about my role, and obviously, with where I am in my career, I was very open to coming here and understanding that you have to compete for a place and not only that if these guys are claim what you can add when you play to help take the load off these guys. So I welcome that. Like I told you before. I have no issue with that, especially with where I'm at in my career, I still want to be playing and challenging for minutes, but at the same time I understand that if I have to take a step back, I have no issue with that at all. And these are very, very good strikers with Carlos in behind. So I just look to add to it. Whenever I can help the team get more goals,.

"A number of years nosey area really well. My brother lives here with his family. So that was kind of cool. You know how many times your career are you going to have that option to play around so many close loved ones? On both sides of the spectrum. So that was huge for us. That was a huge, huge talking point for us during this whole process. And so obviously like you said, if you have that family type of environment right, then it frees you up on the field. So hopefully obviously you have that one two punch, but obviously the family aspect was huge for us and choosing boss and I know a lot of people might have been like, you know, wow, wow, but for us, that was huge. That was huge to be around our loved ones. When we're not able to because we're both traveling a lot. And made it a lot easier. You had a quote in your pressor that was you can't beat father time. I just heard you say you're on the wrong side of 30. A lot of us out there nodding our heads on that one. But look, I also think you know Lewandowski, he's like 33. Korean Benzema is 33. Robbie Keane and David villa have won MVPs at this age. You're not old, man, but how does the body feel? No, no. How does the body feel? I feel great. I feel like I feel like I was 22 and I feel amazing. I just mean in the sense where your decisions are different at this age. What you're looking for, what you want to be a part of. And that family aspect is amazing. And so, you know, when you're younger, I feel like you can take maybe in my opinion you can maybe take more risk in certain areas and be more of a daredevil, but when you're a father, you're 32, you have a wife, you know, you have to be kind of smarter in terms of, you know, what you're looking for, what you're looking to do and what situations you're trying to put your family. And so that's what I meant more of there, not with the sporting wise. I don't have the cane out yet, right? Yeah, nah. This is exciting because I was my rookie year, you know? That never goes away that competitive spirit never goes away. How is your body though? 'cause we haven't seen a ton of you. So do you feel like you feel great? Oh, good, you know, you know, that's the part that is disappointing a little bit. You know, there was a lot of periods where I was taking pain, killers, you know, shooting whatever in my booty in terms of pain questions, numbing to play. And I'm human, man. Everybody's human. Sometimes that stuff comes back to you. You know, it comes back when you do to your body. So I had a rough couple of years and that aspect, but that's normal. And it's a shame that it happened how it happened, but I feel great. You know, I had to have the Sergio on my foot, you know, I broke my foot in the MLS cup, semifinal. Against Columbus, I broke my ankle..

"Yeah, I mean, we kept the same relationship, you know, we kept in touch over the years a little bit and, you know, we met up in the January camp for dinner and literally it was the same person I had met all those years ago, and I couldn't believe it. So, you know, I'm very lucky to have somebody like her in my life and yeah, she's a special special person. This relates back to the revs and we'll get there after this one. I'm a big new year's resolution guy. I don't know if you are. It seems like Sloane certainly is. Would you share with us any of your new year's resolutions? What are the things you're thinking about in 2022? Just to be happy and enjoy my work, you know for both of us, you know, we got a lot to deal with outside noise and all that stuff. And I just want to enjoy my work. I love the game and I'm just excited to get to playing again, you know? It's been a weird couple of years. So just to get back on the field and then just play it, it's been great. So that's my resolution. Just enjoy and smile on the field and just enjoy it because who knows how much longer we got, right? You know, I'm on the wrong side of 30 in the way in terms of sports. So I want to enjoy my time and enjoy every game and training and locker room stuff and just being part of a team. Why the revs, I mean, I heard so many rumors and I was trying to start as many as I could as well with zero information, by the way. But South America was here and I half of me is like, yeah, go to league and max, that would be so fun. Like just to watch you in Mexico and obviously we just saw you on the press conference. I mean, your Spanish is just, you know, you would fit in perfectly down there and then selfishly I wanted you an MLS. So what was this process like? You got married. You gave Sloane that time to give yourself that time to breathe. And then the process starts. And what does that look like for you?.

"Extra time is exactly how I find out what's going on in the MLS. Maybe this podcast is influenced me a little bit as well. Everybody up here. Every single day goes into the office into the laboratory. They're trying to cook up some great stuff for you guys. That's why he's here. From New York, New York, you are listening to extra time. From the AT&T 5G virtual studios, I am Andrew weebie with my partner in soccer, who else, Josie, altadore. We have a huge interview for you today, been working for years to get this one done. One of the strongest, most interesting personalities, one of the best players in the American game, Josie, of course, just signed on with the New England revolution for three seasons, they're chasing MLS cup and maybe CCL two. I sat down with him on Tuesday for a wide ranging conversation I think you will really enjoy without further ado. It's an AT&T 5G caught of the field. Jose Aldo. All right, a very special guest on extra time, haven't talked to him on this show, but Josie altadore is here in New England, Josie, what's up, man. Thanks for joining me. Thank you for having me, man. Love your stuff love what you guys are doing, so happy to be on your show today. Hey, just happy you're back. We'll talk more about it. There were a lot of scenarios flying around. I was hopeful to be in the last so I could get to watch you and talk about you and see what you're doing every single week. We'll talk soccer. Don't worry about that. I want to start you with something more important. That happened on New Year's Day. You're a married man now. You and Sloan made it official tied that knot. You did it though. It's a weird time to do it, I guess, and your personal life too, 'cause COVID happened, you have, you don't have a club at the time. Tell me about this process of getting married on New Year's Day and what was going around in your mind, her mind, your family's mind as all this goes down. It's actually funny you ask that because you know the club stuff it was all flying around, you know, even before our last game. It was crazy and Toronto with the club stuff. But because we were getting married, I put everything off. And wanted to focus on that, you know? You know, we both live crazy lives and I hold that to her to block out everything and focus on planning this wedding and make sure everything went well because like you said, COVID is challenging. And we had to make sure everybody got tested and if you tested positive, you were out. We had tests literally every day. So it was some serious business. She did not play with that and you know, it had to be that way, right? With where we are in the world of COVID. So it was an event and I'm happy and went so smoothly and beautifully. I.
