"Knit drafting sportsbook minimum age and eligibility restrictions apply, see show notes for details. Matt Turner, I can't tell you how magical it has been to watch your journey. I remember after the gold Cup final last summer, you tell reporters, I don't think I ever would have pictured myself playing in a final against Mexico when I first had dreams of playing soccer. And now, now I'm sort of addicted to that feeling. Can you articulate that feeling for those of us that are still waiting for our call up? It is larger than life. Think about the thing that you've worked hardest for in your whole life and coming to fruition. And then being tested on one of the biggest stages imaginable, and it going perfectly. You know, that's like a rush. It's like you're gambling. You play in red or black on the roulette table and you pick red and your whole life savings on it and you hit euphoria and I'm glad that I found that addiction on the soccer field and not actually at the roulette table. Football is a hell of a drug. Your average goalkeeper starts in gold. Let's say 7 years old. That means you roughly 9 years behind and the goalkeeping position if you just said is one which is really you mature into it. You're deep into your 30s. Is it possible that we're not going to be seeing peak mat Turner until 2031? I'd say so. I still feel young. I still feel really, really great. I still wake up every day eager to learn and to get better. I come into every day thinking to myself, I can learn something today. What's it going to be? How can I get a little bit better? How can I improve? Listen, it's not a daily mantra, but that's just how I always feel as I step onto the field. So yeah, I think it's definitely possible. I think I'll continue to improve for many, many years. And then when I can't move as well after 20, 31, then I'll continue to get better because I'll figure out ways to make the game easier for myself and I'll sort of streamline it. And I'm hoping to play into my 40s. That ten year list of goals. That's on my list of goals. My real goal is to play a professional soccer game with my son. However, if he doesn't want to play soccer, I will be okay with that. But that's the goal. If he's like 16, 17 year old phenom, and I can tough it out for two or three more years and just get one game. That'd be it. Would you advise him to be a goalkeeper? No. You take dude, we need a number 9, get on it. Yeah, I would say I would just say go score goals, go have fun. 'cause this is fun while I train, but in the game, it's not so fun. So you go have fun out there. Matt, I gotta say, I find, and I think anyone that's listened to this will agree, you are truly bloody inspirational, really a testament to belief, tenacity to never taking no to believing that there's always another level. The Robert Frost poem, the road taken two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference. You have walked a footballing road less taken. What is it about you? What quality do you have that there's enabled you to do this? One, it's the support from my family. From the people that have always seen me compete from a young age, they've always just stuck by me and they always believe that I could achieve whatever I set my mind to achieve. And that's a really great feeling when you have people in your corner that even when it doesn't go right, you can always look at them and they'll put their arm around you and say that they're proud of you. At the end of the day, that's all it really matters before every game I think to myself just put forth a performance that you can look yourself in the mirror and say that you're proud of and then you can look your family in the faces and they'll be proud of you as well. And then I think the other thing is that competitiveness when I was a kid, I didn't really know how to harness it. So I was the POS. I don't know if I'm allowed to curse on this show or not. But I was kind of a piece of. I was so competitive. I didn't know how to harness all of it. So I would cry, you know? Like if I was on the basketball court and I would get fouled or ref wouldn't call it or ref called a, I would just, I couldn't control my emotions, you know? And I think it was like embarrassing for my parents at some level sometimes, you know? Or if I struck out in baseball or rolled over a ball, I should have hit over the fence. I've smashed my bag, my helmet. I was horrible kid, you know? But it was like all of a sudden it changed when I got into soccer. I figured out the way to harness that competitive energy and instead of using it to get upset, I used it to get better and to work at things. And I think that that's what being a goalkeeper, you need to have a little bit of calm about you. And that's been really the challenge of my life was to figure out how to keep that rage and those tantrums like calm and use it as energy to continue to work harder and continue to get better. If I could take you Back to the Future style in a Delorean, what would you tell yourself if we could go back to your freshman year of high school at night after you'd first played football? When you didn't want to go back to practice, when you thought about quitting the squad, what would Matt Turner today say to Matt Turner back then? Knowing what you do now. I don't know if I would say anything because I had enough people in my life that set me on the right path. One of my favorite parts about my whole journey is that I really lived all along the way. I never felt when I was 14, 15, 16, I can't do this because I'm trying to do that. I had the same college experience that most Americans that I went out, I partied. I had fun. I drank was drinking in people's backyards in the Woods by trampolines in high school, you know? Running away from the police. You know, it was all those things. I had that childhood and I would never want to take that away from 14 year old Matt Turner. So I think that all those things that were really great to have those experiences was amazing. I think you just look at young mat and just saying, Matt, let's ride. I like that. Let's ride, yeah. I literally said that to Ashton so far. You should kill me for it. My Turner, you are a great American. I am so humbled and honored to have this window into your life at this incredible moment in your career in your life. You're living that a lot of life and to hear you talk about it. So beautifully, it's inspiring. Thank you, man. Godspeed. Thanks for having me on Raj, it's always a pleasure. Thank you.

"And I try to evaluate myself and got to a point now where I feel like I need to change in order to reach that next next level, you know? And so for me to not only be around the national team for a few weeks playing with the ball from the back, understanding the game a little differently, then then going back to the revs and reverting back to kind of this old school mentality. Now I'll be training it all the time. And so instead of making big leaps every two or three weeks and then kind of like going backwards, regressing a little bit, I'll make a big leap into two or three weeks and now I'll come back and I'll be training at doing the same things having the same values and style of play and also Raj not for nothing but these opportunities don't come around all the time. I've been around the game long enough to know that. And when you become an important player for a club, like I had for the revolution, it's only certain type of team that's going to be able to afford your transfer fee or to be able to pry you away from a club like the revolution. And those clubs, opportunities to become a goalkeeper on those clubs that are become fewer and further between, you know, especially when you're 28 and you're getting older and older. So I think this was the right time. And I think obviously in the World Cup year, maybe fighting for game time is not the perfect scenario, but I think for me, being a starter in MLS and not fighting for game time wasn't guaranteeing me starting time for the national team anyway, even when I was playing at the highest level possible. So, you know, I got to shake it up. I got to shake it up and I got to take these chances. 'cause there is a footballing common wisdom that international goalkeepers must be starters on their club teams. Are you at all worried about playing time? Junior club where you're not going to be the starting goalkeeper with the World Cup just 5 months out. Yeah, I'd be lying to you if I said I wasn't concerned, but there's a lot of opportunity to play games in the early part of the year. Whether it's cup competitions, European competitions. So for me, the important thing is to go into pre season with the right mentality, be a good teammate, be a good support person, but also be ready to compete and to show them my teammates and develop that trust. Why are these guys spent money on me to bring me here, you know? And become as good as I possibly can. So that way, come the fall when games are coming thick and fast. The players and the coaching staff feel that they can trust me enough to put me on the field. Roger,

"On the eve of a remarkable moment in your career, you, Matt Turner, of Bergen county, are poised to move to England to the Premier League to arsenal. And Matt Turner, take us to where you were and what you experienced when your agent called and told you originally it was a long shot, I think, he said to you, but when that became realer and realer, talk to us about your emotions. The first person I call is my wife, my now wife, she was just my just my fiance then, but I just said to her, I think this is actually gonna happen, you know, because we obviously talked about it being a long shot. And before we even got together, we were just in the talking phase to be millennial. I said, listen, I like you a lot, but before we jump into anything more serious, I just need to tell you, these are my goals, my career, one of them is to go play in Europe. Hopefully it's the Premier League. Hopefully it's in England. If that's the case, that means that if we get together, I'm probably going to ask you to move countries. If you're down for that, let's ride. If you're not down with that, we shouldn't even jump into this. And to her credit, she said, let's ride. So that was the first person I called when my dream came true because I'm one of those people that likes to make people aware of my goals. Do you share with a list, Matt? I show the list. It's more of like a talking thing between us now. Almost before every game. It's like, okay, what do you want to do for this game? What's your intention? Why? My last game against Granada, she's like, what do you want to achieve in this game? And I said, I want to pass above 90%. I want to link one play from the goalkeeper to the other end for a scoring chance, and I want to keep it clean sheet. You know what I'm saying? It's like little things like that. We just bash them out. And that's part of why I think basically since I met her, I've become more consistent player because I'm talking things out and I'm writing things down more and that's been really helpful to me. The secrets of a great relationship are in there and that is your present and your future, but you passed is also baked into this story because the incredible thing is arsenal football club you Matt Turner supported arsenal as a kid from across the ocean or because your sister played on a youth side named arsenal in its honor. When I heard that too, I was like, oh my God, why couldn't his sister have not played for a team named Everton? That's because we didn't live in Connecticut. There's a clubbing, Connecticut called Everton. Man, messed up. It is cosmic your story. You are a proper fan during your final years in college first season of two of the revs. You spend many of your weekend mornings watching games and arsenal supporters preferred bars. Does this feel like a movie to you like rookie of the year or something? Again, that's what I'm talking about with this main character thing. It's just crazy, you know? That would be the club. All leading up to this big moment has been amazing and incredible. But I've always been in this business to see how far I can take it. This is obviously a step forward and I want to go there and put forth performances that the fan Matt would be proud of. How are you feeling in this moment, poised really on the precipice of this enormous moment in your life, not just a career move, really is a life defining move. Is it nerves? Is it excitement? Is it fear? Is it all of those? Everything. Everything you can feel, I'm feeling right now. Not only because of the move, but also because I'm expecting a kid very soon. So definitely feeling a lot of things, but I'm happy to feel them because it means I care. For me, it's feeling emotion about what you're doing is a beautiful thing. It's what life's about. That's right. And that's right. How have our prepared you for the transition? What have they told you in the lead up to your arrival? I've had many conversations with the goalkeeper coach and many conversations with Mikhail about their style of play, project, their expectations of me off the field, being tangibles. I know they did a lot of due diligence asking around people that have interacted with me over the years about how am I as a person and a locker room, they want to make sure that I was a good fit for their club, you know? But that's really the overarching theme. It was Kristin, we believe in you. We've seen what you do. We don't care what league it's in. We don't care if it's MLS. You either have it or you don't, and we believe in what you've done has been great. It's going to be different when you're part of a team that's spending money on you. They're investing in you. Definitely going to be a different feeling in a different type of pressure. Have you spoken to any Americans about their Premier League experiences, really tap them for insight? Absolutely. I wouldn't be me if I didn't. I've talked to Tim Howard a bit. I've talked to Brad friedel obviously having a relationship with him being the coach here. My goalkeeper coach in New England has his own fair share of playing and coaching experience in the Premier League Kevin Hitchcock. So I've had many guys that I can rely on to talk to and learn the ropes a little bit and I haven't been hesitant to reach out to anybody, so it's been good. You've talked about how this is your quote. I have to train at a higher level the style of play with the revolution is mighty old school if this pressure, we don't really try to play out of it too much. I play well in MLS and I just kind of crank out games, but sometimes I look back and I think like, okay, where can I do better, you know?

"It's not about you anymore. It's about the whole collective, and it's about what you guys are representing. So for us, with the national team, being the change. So now you're part of this group that's trying to inspire change in different areas. You don't want to just say it. You know, you don't want to just say it in the media. You have to reflect that with your performances as well. In my opinion. Concacaf qualifying is some oddity, the heat on the road, 85° humidity in Panama City, to that wind chill of minor 17 in Minnesota. What was the most important lesson you learned about yourself Matt in the crucible of Concacaf World Cup qualifying? Some of the most challenging games I've ever played in between the changing conditions, the hostile fans, as the United States, you get everybody's best shot. You know, it's funny looking at the crowds that other teams play in front of when it's not the united states. It's significantly different. But personally, it's about focusing on yourself, but understanding what you need to do to help the team get the result that they need. It's just about the results. So whatever your role becomes, whether that's the first string, whether that's the backup, you got to do that role to the best of your ability. You got to make sure that first keeper is ready to go. He's feeling good because being a fan in 2018, feeling the disappointment of not qualifying. And now having an opportunity to make the team as good as possible and get back to the World Cup, it's bigger than one person. It's bigger than yourself. That's a crazy thing you've just said and you tweeted the same thing when you qualified and I loved it. I remember where I was when we felt it qualified for 2018. I couldn't fathom that as I found those with your words and they said the sure as hell didn't think I'd have anything to do with getting our country back to the World Cup. I read that. I was like, oh my God, that Turner, just a fan in 2018, you are essentially the last starfighter, a hero plucked out of the ether with the skills to save the world, but to qualify for the World Cup now from fan two goalkeeper U.S. men's. What does that feel like? Tremendous pride. And I hope that someday somebody talks in an interview and says, I heard Matt Turner's story, I was down on myself and I wanted to give up on playing soccer, but I stuck through it and I have my opportunity with the national team or I have the opportunity with my club team that I always dreamed of. That's the feeling because for me, it's been obviously a lot of ups and downs, twists and turns. And to have the opportunity to play in a World Cup, the event that ignited my passion for the game of football, the game of soccer. It's just this full circle that I almost feel like the main character of TV series, you know, because sometimes it just feels surreal that things line up the way that they do for me. But I know that it's not an accident. It's surreal. It's something truly paranormal about the Matt Turner career, and it is utterly all the better for that. I need to ask you in terms of the U.S. team. You caught in somewhat of a goalkeeper quarterback controversy with Zack Stefan, Ethan Hawke, Sean Johnson, all of you getting minutes. How do you experience that from the inside? Like, how do you fathom an experience that? The way I look at it is I have a tremendous trust in Greg. And so whatever Greg thinks is what's best for the team, I'm going to go and support that wholeheartedly. Obviously, I have my own beliefs and I love playing. I want to play. I want to represent the country. I want to play at the World Cup. However, if Greg were to decide it's someone else, that's going to be playing the games. I would support that decision and I would support the team and I would obviously be disappointed. I'm not going to go down without a fight, but it's just something that at that moment, 8 years of angst and I are from the fans is like, okay, this isn't about me. This isn't about my disappointment. This is about us going out there and putting out the best performance that we possibly can so that those fans that have waited since 2014 to see our country at a World Cup again can enjoy the experience and we can give them what they want. Your manager keeps talking about how he wants to keep it that can play with his feet and apart from a blip against Canada, you look very, very, very solid with that ball at your feet. When it said about you that you need to work on your footwork when the balls play back to you, does it create an extra seed of doubt in your decision making or do you have the mental techniques to shut that down? That's a loose narrative now because I've gotten a lot better over the last I mean, if anyone's paying attention over the last 12 months, they would have seen a tremendous improvement. For me, it doesn't really matter what anyone says. I know what I offer on the field now. I know my understanding of the game has been getting so, so much better. And how I can hurt other teams is getting so much better and how I can help my teams that I play on is getting a lot better. So for me, I understand that there's areas of improvement. That's one of them, but I'm the type of person that in order to get the opportunities that I've gotten, I've always tried to look at every part of my game as an area of improvement as an area where I can work on it to get sharper, get better instead of punching that ball. How can I catch it? Instead of pairing that one there, how can I carry that one a little further up the field or a little wider, keep it from going out for a corner. So I'm the type of person that's always being critical of myself and trying to finagle the game and make it as easy as possible for me.

"You a contract in 2016, loan you out to the USL team Richmond kickers for two seasons and you didn't make your MLS debut until 2018 within two years of that debut, you'd work your way from third string keeper to MLS goalkeeper of the year and I've got to say this part of the journey, it's not massive money football. It's not always glamour with the movements along the way that you thought, you know what? This is not for me. That never crossed my mind. And I think that's due to the fact that I never achieved some of the goals that I set out to achieve when I was in college or even in high school. I was never a first team all conference selection. I was never a goalkeeper of the year. I was always this under the radar. I'll call it underappreciated part of teams. So to win goalkeeper of the year, it was weird. That was more individual awards than I won my entire life besides for like a coach's award or a hustle award. You know, those kinds of things I always won those always won those ones, yeah. At that point, I knew that individual awards, they don't define a person. It's all about the team's success. And that's where my mentality was at. And once my team started doing better, the individual awards came after. In your success with the revs, inevitably put you in the national team site. There's something I've never told anybody and if I want to tell you because this is just a great space. My first national team January camp was in January of 2020 from four COVID. And it was me, Sean Johnson and Bill comedian at camp. And so we decided to split games three ways. We were playing against Orlando city B and like a closed door friendly. I got the ball on the right side of the box. And I see my left back making a run out of the left side. And I go to throw it to him and he's running and then he looks away from me. It was Brian kyo. And as I go to throw it, I try to hold it back rush and it goes straight into the goal. That was my first appearance with the national team. And I was devastated. And that's when I thought that's it. I swear. I never really told anybody that story. So there you go. There's your breaking news. I can't believe I just said that out loud. That's been like one of the best kept secrets in sports. But Greg will remember that well. The blunder two electric boogaloo. The blunder too electric boogaloo. Unreal. And you were like, that's it. I'm done. I've done myself in in that moment. I said, you know what? It's been a great ride. I'm enjoying my time in New England. That's all it'll ever be. The world shuts down after that. Pandemic was almost the best thing to happen to me because people forgot about everything that happened. So it was almost like a clean slate. And that's how I took it. And my first game back from the pandemic was MLS is back tournament. And we beat Montreal one zero and I made a great save in stoppage time to keep it one zero. And that built my confidence. My goal was to make it as hard as possible for Greg to not call me in again. And so I got the opportunity and January of 2021. It got called in. Who calls it? Greg, he called me and said, let's get to work. This is a big camp. You have every opportunity here. And let's get started. And for me, how I felt was just thank God he didn't bring that other thing up. First of all, and two, it's just like, it's in the past. It was a year ago now. 2021 is such a busy year for the national team. I'm going to have an opportunity to play if I make the most of this camp. But as a goalkeeper, you can't let your mistakes define you. And to have mistakes and have bounced back from them, it's a really important feature to have. Can I just tell you, as a new immigrant to the United States, a new citizen? I always love the pregame national anthem. But no one sings it better than you. I appreciate you saying that. You know, I take a lot of pride in that. I love this country. I sing it loud and proud, you know? Because that's who I am. I like to think I'm a decent singer. You know, I was saying in the choir back in the day. Before my voice dropped, so I have to find a new range. And sometimes my voice is feeling good, and I can hit all of the range in the same octave, but sometimes when it gets to certain parts of the anthem, I gotta drop it down and octave, you know? So hopefully it gets me at the right time, the camera. I need to know, does it feel different pulling on the U.S. Jersey from a nerve's perspective, or does it just feel like another game? Definitely different. Definitely feels, and I'm sure I'll feel the same way once I'm in London. The scope of what you're representing becomes so much bigger than you. You become part of this bigger brotherhood,

"Remaining a stag in the spring of my sophomore year. The summer rolls around and everything changed. Yeah, you come back was human tenacity personified. You proceeded to win back the starting spot, lead the country and save and shut out percentages of following Caesar. And there's something, well, there's a lot really, but there's something I really admire about you, Matt. It was around this time that you became a gent who started to write down these goals. When you first started writing down goals back then. What really realistically was on your list? The guy I mentioned before, Michael O'Keefe, we sat down together and he helped me talk through my goals, you know? Because he was somebody that went through the three and a half or four year process and had a tremendous success. So I asked him to help me. It actually took a lot of reflection because I didn't really know. I felt like I made it, you know? The vision once college soccer, I made it. So there was short term, which were more like academic or seasoned based. There was midterm, which was like, okay, I'm still mostly academic based. And then some soccer as well. Okay, I want to squat this much and bench press this much and do this many chin ups and weigh this much. Those kinds of things. And then there was long-term, which were more like, okay, I want to become the captain, which I achieved, to become first team all conference, which I actually never achieved, to win goalkeeper of the year, never achieved. When a Mac trophy, a lot of which didn't come true. But then there was like long shots and that was become a professional soccer player. That is the part of the journey we're about to dive into because as goal oriented as you were, the road was still filled with one sucker punch after another. You weren't invited to the MLS combine. You weren't drafted. You professional career, honestly, looked dead in the water until your agent channeled Jerry Maguire and convinced Remy Roy the New England revolution goalkeeping coach to invite you to preseason camp and give you a chance. And so much of your career has been defined by these kinds of moments, people giving you an opportunity, a chance, even though on paper you didn't have the right qualifications. What do you think it is about you, Matt Turner, that inspires people to gamble on your potential? I've never really thought of that piece of it because it has always been that way. I've never had the resume. I've never had the background that people might want for their positions, but I think what makes people want to gamble on me is just my mentality every day. You know, it's the way I hold myself to a certain standard. It's the way I'm self aware with the fact that I know I don't have a lot of experience, but I can offer you this, this and this. And I can offer you the fact that I'm going to be passionate and care and really go for it all the time. And I think that that was the selling point that a lot of coaches over time started to see. You're stuck at the revs, but the learning curve into the pro game was brain bending. You arrived from a relatively small college program, less than a decade out from first picking up the sport. Can you describe those first months adjusting to the demands the regime of professional trading in a professional league? It was very, very challenging. And I will say this, there was times where I wish that they would just say, you know what? You're not good enough because it was mentally physically grueling. I mean, Raj, I'm talking, if you pass me the ball from ten yards away and asked me to pass the ball back to you first time. I couldn't do it. No one ever ever taught me how to do it. At college, I got away with it because I was athletic enough to make saves and catched crosses. And I could hit the ball 60 yards. So if I could just hit it into this one area, 60 yards away, like my coach was he was the scouts or he didn't really care. Just kicking me, just kicking. He's a great guy. He's still the head coach at Fairfield, by the way. Carl Reese. God bless the stags. You gave a quote once, I would go home every day and drink pickle juice because I lived in a house with no air conditioning to stop the cramps and then I would just sleep and I just thought, oh my God, that was your mental state. I would get nervous about going the next day because I don't think I realized how much your mind can take away your energy. There's obviously physical demands of everything, but this is where I started learning about how strong mind can be when you challenge your mind, how draining that can be. The goalkeeper go to the time Grammy Roy. I love him. I'm so grateful for everything he did to me. I say, did to me, and did for me, you know? But how hard he'd kick your ass is a sense of what you're saying? Exactly, you know? And he would pull me off to the side during training. He would just run me through the paces, run me through the paces. You got to pass it like this. You got to clean it up. You got to clean it up. If it wasn't good enough, it's not good enough. It's not good enough. He didn't even care. He would just keep repeating himself. It's like stuff you see in the movies. I need to find some old training clips. If you could hear the way this guy talked to me, you'd be like, what? Remy was just like wax on wax off. It was like wax on wax off, but not so kind, you know? You know, it was more like whiplash. You know the movie whiplash? Where the drummer and it was more like that. Just the torture, the torture, the mental torture of it all. Yeah. The drummer knows he's this excellent drummer, and now he's trying to do just one simple thing or he thinks he nails it and the teachers, it's not good enough. Whiplash meets The Karate Kid. Oh, meets goal the movie.

"Exponentially more than the goalkeeper on the team stronger in possession would have faced really a crash course you had Matt in shot stopping. There's your 10,000 hours right there. And you said it's that early experience, which is just made you comfortable facing shot after shot after shot, that shape you. Not only did I face a lot of shots in game environments in high school, but also I didn't have any formal goalkeeping training until I joined that club team when I was 16, 17. So all I would really do I practiced was just we were like a team that practiced a certain way. I would just kind of stand in goal and everyone would shoot on me all practice. I would come home filthy. My mom would be like, what were you doing? You know, I'm like, I'm just doing what they tell me to do, you know? And my best friend's dad used to drive me to and from practice. And he would make me ride home with my hands outside the car window 'cause my goalie gloves and smelled so bad. Oh, my turn, that all stinky hands. Out of such scenes, greatness is forged. I'm gonna say Matt here in your story. To me, you like American menu bolt, a gent who was not aware that he had an innate natural skill as a kid, but once you found it, was it like realizing you had an a superpower a hidden superpower Spidey sense, which was just saving shots. Weirdly, yeah, it was just something that my older sisters had club teams, even when I would go down to the field, my dad would be like, well, I don't want to watch you running around doing whatever. So just hop in goal. Even when I was doing that, I always was just pretty good at it. I just love the challenge of it. People would always laugh and be like, oh my God, I can't believe you stopped that and it gave me this buzz and this energy that nothing else really in sports ever did. And it was watching the 2010 World Cup as a 15 year old kid. The U.S. gloriously topping their group reaching the round of 16 powered by that delirious Landon Donovan goal that was heard from sea to shining sea. Perfect on here for the USA.

"My guest today was a gentoo's traveled one of the unlikeliest and most remarkable roads in football. If you told them ten years ago, he'd be sitting with us today, keeping goal for the U.S. men's national team being scouted and recruited by arsenal football club, the team he supported from afar as a fan. I don't know that he would have believed you. And his rise is one of the most inspirational stories in American soccer, really a Beacon of light for late bloomers everywhere. He's got the eyes of Nicolas Cage, the reflexes of an elite table tennis champion, and the national anthem singing voice of an angel. It's a joy to welcome Bergen county boo from. Mister Matt Turner. Hello, Raj. Thanks for having me on. Again, these intros just get better and better. Every time we have you on, you add another level. But I want to go back to the beginning and talk about you introduction to soccer because a lot of people don't know this and it's really astonishing. You didn't start playing football seriously until you were 16 years old for context by 16. Your U.S. teammate Tyler Adams was debuting for Red Bull's New York, Christian politic had just moved to Dortmund and you. You were teaching yourself how to block shots on the junior varsity team at saint Joseph regional high school. The type of person that's always had to earn it. And teach myself along the way. So it's a defining characteristic of who I am. It feels normal to me, which I know it's completely not. What we do know is that you're from park ridge, New Jersey, Bergen county, best known as a birthplace of James Gandolfini, also one time Homer Richard Nixon. You idle growing up was Derek Jeter. Would it be fair to call baseball your true first love? As soon as I could walk, I was swinging it back. I loved all things baseball. I watched Yankee games on mute and I commentated in the background. You know, it was definitely my first love. Some of my other favorite Yankees Paul O'Neill, Bernie Williams, and Marianne Rivera, because he was ice in the veins. What kind of a baseball player would mat have been? Utility, you know, the guy that can just about do everything. Plug me in anywhere in the field and I'll get the job done. Through right handed and bat left handed. One of my coaches used to always just put me in to pitch. You know, I wasn't a big picture, but anytime we were under pressure or there was a pressure situation. He always put me into the game to pitch just to get us out of it, which was something he saw in me that I don't think many people did back then and I'm talking 6, 7, 8 years old. Your first encounter with soccer came freshman year of high school when you showed up to soccer tryouts as a way really of keeping in shape before basketball and baseball season started up. And I believe your parents had to talk you into going back for day two, much more a literal sliding doors moment than most athletes can point to, tell us what happened and do you ever think back to that day and just think of how much you owe your mom for forcing you back? I'll tell you what, Raj, there is very many more of those sliding door moments throughout my soccer career, you know, my football career. But that was definitely the first one. I was going to a new school and it was a good way to start meeting new people. And socially, to get acclimated to a new environment, showing up, being 13, 14 years old, and not having a background of playing and all these guys, not saying that they were superstars, but they had trained. So they understood the game. They understood the technique of how to pass and how to kick. And I just kind of showed up like, oh yeah, this will be fun, you know? Running around and like a chicken with my head cut off. I had no idea how to really play the sport. The second day to my parents credit, you know, they said, you know, you used to always go to your sister's practices and play with the older kids, and they would just throw you in goal. Why don't you take your sister's old goalie gloves and go just try to be a goalie on the second day. God, I love that. And on the second day of tryouts, your freshman goalkeeper got injured, bit of kismet, which has turned out to be fortuitous for our entire nation, really, except that one poor kid. The coach asked if anyone wanted to go and go, and you've said more than anything, you just wanted to stop making a fool of yourself on the field. That's right. I raised my hand. I took out my sister's old goalie gloves, hopped in net and funny enough. It just came naturally to me. It was like a combination of every sport I ever played baseball for timing, basketball for seeing through the lanes. American football for the physicality of it and just this new challenge that I ended up relishing and loving and enjoying just began to speak to me, but it's still didn't get me to commit to it full time. You mighty saint Joseph green knights, they weren't all that mighty. You ended up facing 20 to 30 shots a game through your high school career, making 320 saves total.

"That kind of success. On this stage, what do they feel like to experience all of them? It was wild, you know? It was a good group of guys. We had, you know, a lot of American based Americans playing on that team. And you know, we just had one goal in mind, and that was to get to the final and to win. It was my first real taste of Concacaf. It was my first real taste of what it meant to play. In a competitive tournament in front of these U.S. fans who are very, very passionate and very loud and vocal, especially in the stands and it was great to be able to put together good performances. It was just really magical and that's something I'll look back on for the rest of my life, but it was just a magical experience. That save against Mexico and food is more. What do you remember from that moment from that save? That moment that day was so important for me to settle into the game because I was nervous. I'm not gonna sit here and lie. I was definitely nervous for that game and the first second minute of the game I get a ball played back to me. I take a heavy touch and fun is more it takes it off me and dives in the box and everyone's going crazy and I was a little, I was a little shaken up by it, you know, and so to be able to make that save, I saw the as I'm coming across. He heads the ball, I saw it pretty late, but I was able to keep my feet under me and cover all the way through the post and knock it out for another corner kick. And I think you see the smile on my face when I get up, it was really just like, okay, we're here now and I've settled into the game and it's going to be tough to beat me now. How would you describe what it's been like in this sort of competition that you guys, there's a lot of good goalkeepers from the U.S.. There's a history of great goalkeepers from the U.S.. What's the dynamic like among you and the other goalkeepers that are also trying to get this job? Yeah, it's been great. Honestly, to everyone's credit, we have a really good group of goalkeepers that know each other on and off the field and have a great relationship, a very supportive, it creates this really positive training environment when we're here together. We all have the same goals in mind. And I think we'll all respect the decisions that the coaches make, whatever it is, and we'll do those roles to the best of their ability and I think that that's because we have a great respect for one another. Do you feel like you're on the path to being I mean, I've read in the past and you said, oh, I just want to be in Qatar. I want to be at the World Cup in any capacity. But you know, you're on the path now to being a starter there, right? If you keep going the way you've been going, do you feel as though you're moving in that direction? Do you feel like it's within your grasp? If I didn't, if I wasn't working towards that, if I didn't feel like it was within my grasp, I wouldn't be a professional soccer player in general, of course I'm going to work hard, and I'm going to try to win that job and I'm going to try to be the best I can be, but understanding having that respect that it might not be, it might not be me, and so then what does my role become? How can I insert myself into this roster, be a part of this team that gets the U.S. back to the World Cup, even if it's not as a number one, whether it's a two or three? How can I do those roles to the best of my ability to just be a part of it all? And to be a player from being a fan now is kind of this great full circle moment. So to be involved in, like I said, in any capacity, and I really do mean that it's truly just, I'm so grateful for it and it's an honor. What you've been through though, what would it mean to have that opportunity? Yeah, it would be it would be incredible. Honestly, it would be incredible. The World Cup is where I fell in love with soccer. 12 years later, to think about, you know, I have such vivid memories of that 2010 World Cup, so then to fast forward 12 years to if I had the opportunity to be on that field when the whistle blew, it would be it would be something out of a children's storybook for sure. Great job again to our good friend Sam Borden and that interview, of course, conducted last year in the time since we know mat Turner has been linked to arsenal, no further news on that, although arsenal did ship one of their under 23 goalies out on loan, so maybe making some room there, Bern lenno also getting more and more links in the Bundesliga. So a move could be on the cards there for Matt Turner as we talked about on the last edition of football I made guys hurt your big take away from the interview there? Well, he spoke about the 2010 World Cup motivating him to want to be a professional athlete. I got chills. That's my World Cup. And then it brought me back to.

"But then they kept having to pull out latiff and then latiff leaves the middle of midfield and displaying right back and then that kind of disrupts the way they like to play and how good latifah is in the middle of the pitch. So I really liked the signings that they brought in, even to shari. I think they got him for like four or 500 in allocation money, which I think is a good price, actually a pretty low price for what I know to be for a player of his kind of quality. So it can be a little bit of a safety blanket for velas not out or not in or somebody gets sold or whatever happens during the season. I think he can and also I think a ton of quality coming off the bench of that ends up being a role he plays at times. I like a lot of the signings they made. But I think that key part is the MLS experience. And by the way, they're not done. You heard the interview there that they have the open DP spot. Trundle was not going to commit to a time or a player or a position on that, but it is obviously in play for this team. He did say Brian Rodriguez is going to be here. We'll get to that in a second Carlos velo though is obviously the star spotlight Dave. Is don't even ask me a question we just do it to yourself. We're talking Carlos bell. This is your space. So the question I was going to ask is like, is God mode over for Carlos vela? Like is 2019 Carlos vela, or even a semblance of it. Is that the past, or is there a present and future where that exists? I just don't think we know. I think it's interesting that in the interview Steve toronzo, I thought was fairly specific of saying it's like riding a bike and didn't say, well, we have to change his responsibility. We have to change the load on him. Like, he could have in that answer said, I believe Carlos fellow can get back there, but I believe that as a team we can do more to help him and make his life easier. He didn't keep him fresh, I'm gonna think about resting him in strategic moments. We're gonna put less on him in this way. It sounded like he was like, well, let's just get him back to where he was in 2019. And with Carlos, like there has been up and downs in his career where it's probably about physically just couldn't do it right now, but then he comes back and does it. He's not old. Even when injured, the last year and a half or so, there were always times where he came back and you were like, oh, oh boy. Second he steps on the field. He's still got back to the right side and a defender goes by him. And I think when you look at a team with Christian arango established that center forward next to him, it's a target he's never had before. It gives him more to play off of. It gives him more that he can set up and kill him was mentioning the right back spot. The expectation would be that Kim moonwalk also takes a step forward and I thought he looked a little uncomfortable a bit robotic at times..

"You know, you don't even talk to anybody. You need to have any focus groups about this. All right, let's keep it rolling here. Brennan aronson to leads. I don't know if I have anything to say about this other than the Philadelphia junior sitting back in the cup being like, give us that gam, give us that discretionary spin. We're about to make a bunch of money off something. So as a USM and T fan, I would say Brandon aronson, playing at a high level right now for his club. This is a huge jump. If he's going to make that huge jump, it has to be in a similar system. And that's where I like the leads move for him. It's a high tempo team. If the Elsa wants him, that means he's going to play. And if he can fit in there and get minutes, now all of a sudden he's a primary player. So I think it's a huge jump for him. It's the right way to do it if this move comes in. I also love that just like Jack Harrison scores a hat trick and B else is like, where is MLS? Littered around the world. More. More. Bring me over Atlanta United coach interview, Marcelo Bielsa. Doesn't that a rumor? I don't know, man. What rumors can't wait link, we can invent them if we want. Just start throwing it out there. We can do this thing. Shout out to Jack Harrison, by the way. Amazing. That's incredible hat trick. Yeah. He's out of career man. He's had a really good career. And by the way, he went to Manchester City with no chance of planning for their first team, worked out for him, just saying, get your money, maybe, depending, I don't know. Paul de norio with this tweet, and I have to read it because it is, we're going to do poetry later with haikus, but this is just music to my ears. Paul is back, baby. He's on paternity leave, but he's dropping in with Jim's like this. The market for gam essentially reset in this CBA. That's because mandatory Tam converted to gam in 2020 and gamble start increasing again next year. Take that and that increased player sales and expansion and there's far more game in the market which explains why far more game is flying around in trades. This is the sort of stuff that my MS nerd brain just loves. And I love when I saw the tweet come through. I mean, Tom boger many others. Haiku, what? I don't know what that was. But it's like the first, you know, the first paragraph to a classic novel. You'll remember that for the rest of your life. You'll be referencing that when you're 75 with a grandchild on your knee..

"Show today. Are you on Twitter? I'm sure you are coming up. Taylor 12 in his tweeting and he's tweeting Matt Turner is going to arsenal or at least says arsenal interest that might break Twitter for the day. Brennan aronson could go to leads for many millions, we shall see about that. In MLS, you might have been surprised as we all were after we ranked the vaccine cripple the third best goalkeeper in MLS. Looks like he's headed to LAFC via trade. It looks like Paul areola could go to Charlotte or Dallas. It's re signing day in Colorado, Shaqiri to the fire we're burying that and more seasoned previews roll on Red Bulls. We got the Cali swing. San Jose galaxy Steve trundle joins us to talk LAFC. We're doing the top 5 center backs nimble S we've got your mail. What's up guys? I like that intro that we're doing now. Builds me up. It gets me hyped. I can just, I feel the energy flow through me. I hope the listeners feel that as well, and nothing can give us more energy this morning than Taylor 12th with 5 siren emojis to tell everyone that arsenal have put in a strong bid for Matt Turner. What a great opportunity for the player in the franchise to further enhance their brand. What do you think? What do you think about brands? Matt Turner, what do you think about arsenal? Yeah. Which group chat though? That's the big question. Well, I've got, so I have a group chat that's called arsenal, which is like a very niche arsenal and Barcelona fans. And they mesh together. And there's not a lot of MLS chatter in this one. So I think I'm going to be strong Euro snob vibes here. Definitely strong. The strongest. They're awake right now and active in that, but then also my U.S. men's national team. People are like, what's he doing? He's gonna lose his advantage over Zach Stefan as far as just that sort of regular playing thing. So I don't know. This one crosses a lot of different interest groups. This brings all the circles into the oh yes. So there's a little bit of like a black hole situation where we all might just get sucked in and just never be able to escape. Yeah, so which perspective should we start with? Arsenal just signed a goalkeeper for like 30 some $1 million or pounds. It doesn't really matter. It's a lot of money. Aaron ramsdale cost them a ton of money last summer. They have burnt Leno, you mentioned Zack Stefan, who's a backup of man city, but it seems like exact stuff it might be the U.S. number one, so maybe actually that's not even an advantage for Matt Turner and if you're Matt Turner you're like, I'm about to go get a fat paycheck. I'm gonna be an arsenal player..

"So enjoy that one as well. It might be our last look at Ricardo Pepe though in Major League Soccer. So that's something to keep an eye on. We will, of course, be doing that on the second screen. If you don't want to do it yourself, we'll have some highlights on there as well from the big moments around the league, so if you're watching your game, we might pop in and say, hey, Ricardo Pepe scored a goal. You can watch it with us. Give us your predictions for the west. How do you think this is gonna end up? I think I've alluded to it in most of the matchups. I think the LA galaxy beat Minnesota at home. That moves them into the 5th spot. I have Vancouver getting a draw at home against Seattle and that moves them into the 6 spot solidifies them in the playoffs. And here's my curveball. I have RSL going to Casey and getting a victory, which would move that oh my gosh. It would give them a tie breaker in wins over Minnesota, and that would put them in the final spot in the playoffs. On the flip side, if those results were to happen the way I said, I think Colorado beats LAFC. They go number one. I think Seattle goes number two, SK C number three and of course, Portland locked in at number four. So there it is. Wow. There's the insanity. Wow. I did not think after this after this performance at home against the timbers and you look, I'm sure Peter remains laid into his guys. After that, I did not predict that. Listen, if it's right, I'm gonna look like a genius. It's gonna look like an idiot. Either way, I am who I am. There you go. All right, those are our thoughts on decision day. Make sure you tune in Sunday, three 30 p.m. eastern. The Eastern Conference goes first on ESPN. Of course, all the games that are not on national TV on ESPN+ and I'm assuming that ESPN will do a ton of jump ins. But if you don't want to wait for them and you need a second screen, which let's be honest, you do if you've made it to this point of the podcast, we'll be doing it on MS channels and Osaka dot com and the MLS app, YouTube and Facebook fires up on your phone on your laptop, have us to the side. Don't even have to watch us. Just listen if we start yelling, you know something important happened and you can see the standings, 24 7. I'll be on the screen the entire time, update live, and that will, of course, be determining playoff spots. We'll be talking about it as it happens for like 5 hours. So come hang out with us, use the hashtag decision day live. We'll take questions, we'll chat with you on the YouTube chat. We will just try to do what we've done in the past, which is experienced decision day together. It is probably the best day of the year from a regular season perspective. And it is always more fun to experience those things with a bunch of people that love what you love, which obviously is Major League Soccer will end it here and we'll have more on the U.S. national team on Concacaf World Cup qualifying in the coming days and weeks because Mexico is coming.

"matt turner" Discussed on ExtraTime

"Three, four, 5, 6, facing off against the revs, whoever can get out of that and go on from there. All right, let's chat with Matt Turner about this revolution team. We mentioned they're hosting enter Miami going to have the supporters shield celebration. But before we get to Turner, your quick thoughts on the rebrand Dave, you've lived in Boston. You have a better place to speak of this than I do. Yeah, it seems like the revs, you know, they were pretty active about reaching out to the fan base for reaching out to the city about what they wanted to see. And I agree with their concept, which is the revolution or relevant in the market, it's a known name and when the team's good when they make a push, they get people in that building and people know about the club when they're successful. So I understand the idea of keeping the connection I would have just stuck with the old logo if it was me. But I don't hate what they've come up with, and I think it'll look pretty clean. Some different gear maybe we'll get a sneak peek as we get to Matt Turner. Right now in a lot of it hinges on a new stadium, but for this club, for everything I track, they're going in the right direction. The youth developments there, they're invested, the training facilities there. They've done really well at the two team level in League One this year. The academy set up is a million miles better than it's ever been before. And they're investing at the first team level and just set a points record. So you can understand now is the time to do it. And in terms of a three, 5 year plan, whatever they started when this conversation began, it's sort of worked out pretty well on every single front. So why not launch this as well? Yeah, look, I was emotionally attached to the crayon logo. It's been there for 26 years. The longest of it being any of the original logos by far. So in that first one got leaked, the one that is now out got leaked, that was sort of like, meh. But with time with the immediacy of it, gone, I think it's just fun. It's got a lot of really cool elements that the crayon crash just doesn't have. That one just kind of stands alone. It has to be what it is. That's it. This one seems like the secondary branding that you see, the little like the little tree crest with the 96, the fact that they're very focused on the R that its revolution, not New England, I like all that. I think that really, really fits. It reminds me of Boston. So I think they did well on this. And the nice thing is that the crayon mogul has a chance to win a most cup still. This thing isn't coming to like December 15th..

"Let's look back on the us as nil-nil draw with el salvador in world cup qualifying match of the octogonal round of concacaf world cup qualifying and to look back on everything. That went down he's sebastian. Salazar and hercules gomez. Thank you very much all right. A million ways to break down this first match of the qualifying cycle for the us. Let's start first by analyzing not the performance but the result itself a scoreless. Draw away against salvadoran. The first of three. Are you satisfied with it. Satisfied wouldn't be necessarily the word it's acceptable right. It's this road formula you steal steal away and you secure points at home so if we're going by that formula team that didn't qualify last world cup because they failed to secure points at home because they failed to steal points away then. Yeah by that standard. I wouldn't say satisfied. But it's an acceptable result. So yeah acceptable i mean. Isn't this the most talented generation of us players ever. Isn't it also the most accomplished at club level of all time at some point. Don't we have to the expectations. A little bit yeah. Let's be honest and say give level. Yes at club level by far. That's not even debate. Let's give go pederson salvador all the credit that you want. There's not a single player hurricane team. That's getting anywhere near the. Us eleven the us eighteen twenty six for these games. I mean you are so obsessed with where guys play you. Want to eat horvath who hardly plays a start over matt. Turner salvador has zero players playing top flight football in europe. Not top five league football light football in europe when you have such a decided advantage of the. Us doesn't tell there. Shouldn't the expectation beat to win. If now that vantage when will it be to win.

Mnt the gold cup. We knew that this was not going to be the same roster. That went out competed oakley one that nation's league tournament gregg berhalter has been saying it for a long time. We're gonna have to separate groups. There might be a little bit of overlap and likely that overlap is gonna come from mls players because it is the summer and you've got transfer window open you've got guys going into preseason camps trying to earn their way like for instance. He said brian reynolds not here because joe's marino doesn't generally play younger players so they want brian reynolds to beat at roma from the jump with the new manager to make sure he has a chance to get into the team otherwise he's going to be working From behind a couple other names in that scenario where cameron carter vickers gotta figure his cup situation. Eric palmer brown to figure out his cup situation. And greg said admitted our centre-back cool is a little bit light. So here is the roster for those of you who haven't seen it goalkeepers matt turner the likely starter. Funny story there. We'll get to that shawn johnson. Brad gazon defenders george bellew reggie cannon shack more. That was a little bit of a surprise. Donovan pines another site. Surprise but again center back a little bit thin per berhalter miles robinson a starter says greg james sands sam vines and walker zimmerman the other presume starter at center back in the midfield coma.

Twenty-three you're thinking about the summer you're thinking about the task at hand which is both to win a gold cup but also develop players to push into the first team to get to the world cup. What are you thinking right now on this thursday morning for me. I'm thinking there's not any anyone that i'm particularly surprised about. That's one too. I think this group is is has enough quality to win now if mexico brings. They're a team. That's going to be challenged in especially with mexico hungary to avenge that nation's league loss.
