"You saw where the goal came from. It's a square ball 30 yards that you're going across the field. You put air along in a very compromising position. Yes, Aaron long could have cleared the ball could have done anything he could have besides trying to play out of that. He tries playing out of that and it's root one. One of the faster players for Mexico and they come down your throat that way. But killing a Costa needs to be a better player. Kelly Costa has shown that he can be a better player. Killing the Costa right now has the luxury of being the only like for like player right now in the pool when it comes for or as close as like to like as you can get to Tyler Adams. So this was disheartening for me. I'm a big believer in Kellen Acosta and at one point he was the next big thing to go to Europe. It didn't work out for him, but you could still think he'd be a Utah player. And what is this pool? He's not shown that. He didn't show that in Arizona. Yeah, it's expectations at this level, right? You figure a guy of his pedigree would do well if not dominated this level. I thought somebody who would do very well at this level was Brandon Vasquez. I thought he would be better. I felt a little bit disappointed in his performance, especially given the opportunity there at number 9. I wonder what you thought of Jesus fede a before the goal because I think obviously if one play can change your opinion of sergino dest, I'm sure the same can be said for his first feda. Yeah, before the goal, it's a difficult position because when you look at what's going on as the ball is moving around and why they're not creative, why they have nothing going forward in the final 30. Look, the expected goals it was abysmal. It was the worst showing offensively that they had since 2018 versus France. That Dave Sarah inside. There was nobody to kind of interlink to kind of drive the ball forward at a mosa Weston McKinney. Luca de la Torre with vision. They didn't have that. So he was trying to be that, pick it up in between pockets, but there was nobody to play with. He looked a little lost in there, but to his credit, he got a goal. And you can say whatever you want about it. And there are many who will say, and I'm not, and I'm not somebody who was a fan of him playing the game he played against the Netherlands in the World Cup, but he seems to be productive when he gets a chance for both club and country and at the rate he's going right now in club. He could be in Europe soon. So you want to play like him to succeed when he gets chances. It's just the eye test, not necessarily his past it, but he's got he's got the stats. And just because I know people are screaming at their television screens right now, we should probably mention Aaron long didn't have his best night either. Let's get to Mexico, herc. Stock up stock down. We will start again with that three on the positive side. And I'm going Luis Chavez. Now this one was pretty obvious to me. To me, he was the best player on the field, not only for Mexico, but of all 22

"Hear it a little faint that wouldn't come out on television the second time, you can absolutely hear it. I don't know if you heard it from the television set where you were at, but you can definitely hear that homophobic chant. Yeah, Mauricio tweeted that he heard it for the first time in the 49th minute, there had been some discussion kind of leading into this game that U.S. soccer has on their books that they could ban Mexico from playing in the U.S. for up to two years over this chant. Before we get to a two year ban hurt, I think we gotta see a stoppage of a game, an ending of a game, then we'll know that they're escalating this, but right now it kind of feels like we always, we always get to the same place with this discussion. We hear the chant, we forget about it for a few months, and the next time it comes up, there's talk of more sanctions, but there's never really anything that happens. They didn't stop it, they didn't stop it last night, did they? No, they didn't stop it last night, but they're not going to sanction themselves. This was run by, this is promoted by U.S. soccer. So when they send out that, I guess if you will, statement, they're talking about the sum games which are when Mexico comes plays in the states. They're not talking about their games. They're going to try to do their best, but cock a gap has not been able to do it. FIFA's not being able to do it. So having U.S. soccer try to police it themselves, it's going to be very difficult. Yeah. 2015, the first time the Mexican federation was fined over this channel. Let's get to some of the individual performances with a stock up stock down. We'll start on the American side of things, and we'll start on the positive. Give me a stock up from the U.S. men's national team game against Mexico last night. So I didn't want to give a stock up for the U.S. men's national. You might thought the performances were pretty bad individually, unless we're talking about the players who came off the bench, but the starter is per se, we're pretty, but then I thought about it. No, there is a stock up. There's a stock up and I criticize her genio desk a lot. Sergino dest who looked lacking in confidence who only touched about 41 times. One of the best players on the field, biggest resumes on the field, Barcelona, Milan, played at ix, already a World Cup under him, had teams like PSG, Bayern Munich, looking for his services and he touches at 41 times as an outside back. He didn't look like he wanted the ball, he could look like he wanted to be there. He looked disinterested until he wasn't. Until he reminded himself was Virginia desk can do when he has the ball at his feet. And in one play and one single play may have not saved the season, but given himself the spark to go back to Europe and lift himself out of that purgatory, which he is in right now with Milan. So I went stock up for sergino individually. I didn't really like his play per se throughout the 90 minutes because I think he's the bar he has set for himself. He did not meet that, but in that play I think that muscle memory may kick in. So I gave him a stock up there. I wonder how much of that was Russ because I'm with you that for most of the game. He didn't really look like the player that we expect, but you see that magic right there. It feels like the stock up is basically down to that. I'll follow on you on Twitter. You said this is the least confidence you've seen from death since 2019. So obviously, that's kind of what you thought of him. In New Jersey, I wasn't going to mention it. You did. A couple other guys I thought were okay. James sans and Sonia off the bench. I thought was was pretty deep. Even more, she was decent as well. Yeah, a lot of people excited about him. All right, that's a positive hurt. We found some positives. Let's get to the negative. Who's your stock down here? Who are you picking? So, I'm a firm believer in Kellen Acosta and who he is and the like for like when you don't have Tyler Adams, you need a player like Kel and Acosta. So this one to me was glaring. It's kind of on a cost. I expect a lot more out of kellan Acosta. He

"Well, they didn't play technically. It was a diamond in the final, but it was a three 5 two for most members. So pissed. Just going off your point when caligari was playing that third center back role. That's what you want to keep Ricky poosh higher up the pitch because I feel like when galaxy gets lost, it's when frustration starts setting in with the midfield. And then they go ball searching. So you lose your balance everywhere. And if you are in that three 5 two naturally you have more numbers in the midfield where they've been struggling turnovers. They've been struggling, getting numbers back, defending behind the ball. So I actually think this system fits them way better. And like you guys alluded to, you're playing for at the back and you're giving up that many goals. It's time to change something up. You're just on balanced everywhere. And again, when you look back at when they are in that four three three, they just look so unbalanced Ricky poosh looks out of sorts and he's a good footballer. I mean, you see that when the ball he plays into chicharito. I mean, he's a great footballer, but I just feel like he's not playing dangerous enough because they're just in the wrong part of the pitch if that makes sense. Like when he gets the ball he's in his defensive third, so he's playing sideways. He's playing those little short passes instead of being clinical and dangerous and balling behind the back floor. What are you laughing at gauze? I just nothing about you. I just remembered the argument with Kellen Acosta at the end of the game, which was like unhinged. Yeah. From chicharito, which I think for the galaxy you need. Like you need him to be an emotional leader. You're a 100% right. I was not thinking about anything soccer. I just say something crazy. It just hit me again of like him just screaming at Kellen.

"6 in this roster and that's Johnny cardozo. Played four games for the U.S.. All friendlies. One of them was a start, I believe, by no means has played a competitive game, a big game of this magnitude for the U.S. miss nationally. If Johnny gets hurt, you've got no nominal 6s. It would have been to the benefit of Anthony Hudson and his team to have a player like Kellen Acosta who's tried and proven World Cup experience a master of the dark arts and shit housing. And then also a dead ball specialist. It just made sense there. I don't understand why he didn't do that. Now you have to hope Johnny cardos is the man. One, and he stays healthy too. What do you think? Why do you think both sergeant and Kelly Costa were left out of the roster? Well, Kellen cost I believe he's trying to separate the two and give it to the gold cup. Still, you should cover because the defensive midfielder. And when it comes to Josh Sargent, it has to be injury concerned because it has to be it's been on a tear. It has to be negotiated on the chair since before the World Cup after the World Cup. He's a player that's in good form. I would assume it's injury concerned even though he played yesterday. Yeah. I mean, again, going back to Costa has been actually really good for the national team. It's not that he has only been good for LAFC, big reason why they're current chance, Major League Soccer champs, but whenever you needed someone else to come and give a hand in midfield, that was always getting a Costa. Yeah. That was bear holders go to guy. Whenever you need it, you need an fresh set of legs, good arm ball, good off ball. Yeah, that was a big, big surprise. Now, on the show, we've spoken highly of following balagan. And we've recounted his goals. He's doing great in France. He was not called up by England and the question now bears is there a possibility that he joins the U.S. miss national team in the future. This is what Anthony Hudson had to say about him. With flow, all our say, Tom is that there's been there is open dialog with him and his team. And that dialog is continuing and that's all I can say on that one. Okay, and then after

"Pushed LA in LA and then a Carlos bell the goal. And I think the 83rd sort of close this one down. Any big thoughts from this one, we got Doug Johnson hit us up about latif blessing and LAFC's failure to sell. We could jump into that one. No, I think this was another example of just how hard this is. LAFC are the reigning MLS cup champions they went down and won three zero. They tried to rotate a little, not even in a disrespectful way. Like, they played Aaron. There's a clear minute split right now between long Mario and culinary. The way the three of them have rotated the last three games, same with si Fuentes, ilie, and Kellen Acosta. And all of her lenses put them, you know, gave them everything they could handle. And push them. So I think to me, that's what I walked away from this game with is like, this is really tough. This competition is super hard. These teams are good and all Valencia, I was surprised by what happened last week. Now you walk away four two over the course of the time, and you're like, yep, that's kind of what I expected. You know what would make it easier? Probably get it done. He'll get it done. We'll save this Doug Johnson email about sort of the lack of sales for LAFC selling up quote unquote for a different day. Vancouver rail Espana, that will be the matchup in the next round here. In the Concacaf Champions League, Vancouver, LAFC, so all MLS in that one. Vancouver, 5 O winners at home. They lose three two in just a classic daytime match in Honduras. Just at CCL, football heritage as Anders might say. Vancouver, Joshua Griffith calls it a watered down lineup. I call it a Canada strong lineup. Dave, second leg, play some of the kids, did vannie sartini? Does Vancouver have a chance against LAFC? Yeah. Absolutely. This is a team they faced before. It's so it'll be more comfortable, less travel. They won Canadian championship last year because they're pretty comfortable in knockout competitions. So a 100% they'll feel that they have a chance. Especially having a DP center forward like cordova sort of banging goals so far. Philly four, Allianz is zero. So we fully Atlas. That is our only Liga MX MLS match up. I believe in this. So I'll put it in the chat. Not outing you here, I don't think, but you were like, I think I'd rather aunt lost if I'm Philly than aliens. I must have been in horrendous form. They lost their manager last year after winning back to back titles. They've lost players as well, high road Torres. We know. They are a mess. But we have a friend who is at the game yesterday when they came back. They were down four one, I believe. Yes. Coming into the second leg and came all the way back. So, you know, you go down to Kuala heart. It's gonna be a vibe for sure. Against Philly, but this, I don't know how to word this. This should be one of the safer MLS first LEGO max ties we've ever had. Now in saying that, a record setting revs team lost three zero in the second leg at a bad pumas team last year, to get knocked out, and that baby is CCO. Hear that honors as a bad pumas team. Oh, and by the way, that revs team was without their star injured goalkeeper and that was the difference in the second leg.

"Good job coming on. There's the Russia. Shoot. No, they didn't know they did it. What did they do? Those listening are like, hold on, hold on. It's hard for me with a clip. That is class. It was so good. So what happened was midway through the second half, I want to say of LAFC's win over New England late Sunday Night. He had a free kick in a good spot and Kellen Acosta and Dennis bwanga did the old rock-paper-scissors to see who would get to take it. And like, Bologna took it. And he pinged it off the crossbar. Like if he had been able to bury that, it would have been in all time highlight, like just one of the absolute best. Katelyn, have you ever fought over a free kick? And if so, how did you resolve the disagreement? No, 'cause I always played with Christine Sinclair, so I was never getting on a free day ever. She was like, just go be on the outside of the wall and don't get in my way. I'm like, got it. Scissors. Just talk what ice cream. We can rock-paper-scissors to see you ask to buy the bottle of wine if we win. That was basically it though. All right. Yeah. That's a term for rock-paper-scissors shoot. Yes. What is it? Never heard that before in my life. Rochambeau. I've never heard of that either. Like the French naval admiral, who helped win the independence war. Hamilton baby. Oh, that's gonna say, look at you. That felt like a slow play for you to drop that knowledge. No, not at all. Literally it just, it pops into my head after, but they said it on the, that was what max and Danny called it. I've never heard that before. All right, you guys want to jump into it? The name rochambeau is used mainly in the western United States and it's a reference to count rochambeau, who, according to a widespread legend, played the game during the American Revolutionary War. The legend is apocryphal. Amazing. Let's move on. You've learned something today. That's actually interesting. I have I had no idea. All right, LAFC. New England revolution. Four, zero. Revs, two teams that I think we can say at this point in Charlotte and Houston that are on the spectrum of not so good. LAFC on the spectrum Doyle of quite good, LAFC, even without Carlos vela, Jose Fuentes, Ryan hollings had in the starting lineup all being arrested, you would presume for Concacaf Champions League mid week at home against Alain say, all rested, they come up for half hour and LFC just slap them up.

"Leases is getting into the playoffs system. No, no, you're a best out of three. The regular season is anything anymore. Undoubtedly the best team will advance. No, the best yes. It doesn't get a best of three. The best team? No. You don't think? No, no, no. The logic will tell you that it will advance. No, because you just said anything could happen. Logic, you just said anything could happen. You celebrate that. I don't think you have to stick to whatever it is the stat. Quote unquote, status quo of the league, which I see. Which, by the way, received your Apple. This is, have I? Oh, I did. You didn't? You didn't? They said it's everybody. And you didn't get it? Everybody. I love the informant. I like it. I think it's going to be exciting. And yes, I can not speak for every single fan in the world, but I'm sure most of the fans will remember this conversation and we'll say we just had it last night. It was right. Maurice your wife, right? All right, let's move on. The 2023 Major League Soccer season will be Ravi indication time for mild Robinson. May 7 of last year, he suffered a devastating Achilles injury that not only knocked him out for the season, but left him out of the U.S. men's national team that fled in Qatar. Her consent had a conversation with him ahead of this 2023 season. Swinging it across towards Martinez and miles Robinson was there for Atlanta on the 5 stripes pull even in the 70th minute. Here's Kellen Acosta to take the ensuing free kick to three out of right in front as turned in a diving header on miles Robinson for his first international goal. Miles Robinson of Atlanta

"It's not that I that I doubt doubted his, you know, his technical ability. I just never saw him never seem to see him in the right position. And he also wasn't is lately a regular first club in. He wasn't always. And there was, you know, there was times in his career where I just wasn't sure if he was going to be what we expected to be. But in this window, he's been absolutely excellent. And he's a starter for me now. So his stock has risen from his taking me from being a doubting Thomas to a start him Simon. That is what they call it. He was my, he was my honorable mention for this, mainly for what you just said that when this all started, I didn't know that I saw a place for him in the 11. Certainly on the team, but I was like, okay, maybe he's someone who, like, in the 70th, you bring on that speed and it really puts a defense on its heels. Now I look at it and think he's going to make the decision process for who starts and who doesn't. If they're all healthy, he's going to make it hard. I don't know if he's playing the ways. You can't take him out. But someone of significance is going to have to miss out. The fact that he's turned this into a really difficult decision, that's a credit to him. For me, I went miles Robinson, just because coming out of the gold cup, my feeling was, okay, he's done enough. We've seen enough now. He deserves to be on that national team. What I did not expect was that we'd be past the halfway point of qualifying. And for me, he would probably be the best offender on the national team. I didn't see that coming. And look, I don't know that we can have a conversation about how much he was missed tonight Weston McKinney as well. I think that was important. Both those guys coming in relatively good form. McKinney, of course, scoring against Mexico. It's unfortunate that they couldn't play tonight. But yeah, so those are the ones I said miles and way. What about the opposite of that? Any player whose stock has dropped for you? John Brooks. Yeah. I think when you're going away from home and you think that the defense centrally is better and less panicky and less concerning by the fact that your Bundesliga Champions League center back isn't there. That is, that is not a good sign. I think at the other end of the field, Daryl DK, you know, that center forward position Jordan CB two, you could sorry excuse me P fock. You could put him in that same sergeant. Bracket sergeant two, and I actually think in midfield, considering where he was in the summer and how we were much more high upon him, Kellen Acosta's stock is dropped. Brooks was mine. I mean, just the fact that you go into a window where you're playing Mexico. This is like we said this is the marquee game and qualifying. And he's healthy, and he's not brought. I mean. That's not out of the picture. He'll be back. I think they just want to give him a chance to stay, I guess, with his stay fresh with his club side, and I don't know. We'll see him again. But the guy that's not the center back from Nashville..
