"Emotional as well. Went to the sideline. You know, spoke with feel a little bit and we made the decision that we're not going to continue until something was done with that player. And if nothing was done, then we weren't going to continue. I think Phil spoke with the opposing coach. When they decided to take the player off, so that's what happened. Taxi fun test has posted this on Instagram. He said, I did not use the word. I'm being accused of using that despicable racial slur is one I denounce and did not use. We had a hot discussion on the field, but I have not racially abused anyone. I firmly reject racism in any form. It is despicable. I have many friends from many cultures. I always respect the culture, religion, and skin color of each person. I am therefore very upset by this accusation and sudden to be falsely accused. Sebastian Salazar is now joining us to discuss the incident further. Thanks for being with us. What's the latest on the whole situation? And as a D.C. United fan, how do you feel about it all? Well, MLS will investigate the league saying in a statement they have zero tolerance for this kind of thing, which you would expect. There is some precedent here, as far as this is concerned in Major League Soccer a year ago, there was an incident with Diego Chara Portland timbers player who was allegedly racially abused by Minnesota United player Franco Fraga pana in that case MLS investigated they couldn't corroborate what was said on the field and so there was no suspension, but according to what we just heard there from not just Deandre yedlin, but Phil Neville himself. It sounds like there's going to be plenty of people that can corroborate what was said or what wasn't said on this field. So I'd be expecting a big suspension. Obviously as a D.C. United fan, it's an incredible disappointment. I hope the league and the club will do their due diligence, look through what happened here, but if they can confirm these allegations, it's just another dark cloud hanging over this team. It's been a brutal season and taxi fun to us was one of the bright spots in that brutal season. He was a guy who came in midway through the campaign, got off to a great start as a DP, but obviously I think as a fan anyway, it's going to be really hard to root for this player if these allegations are corroborated. So you obviously you've alluded to what you think is going to happen there, said, what do you expect to happen next? What are the next steps? Well, MLS will do their investigation. Then I think it's just a matter of if they can corroborate it, which again, it sounds like what we're hearing from the inter Miami side at least. They will be able to. It's a matter of how long will that suspension be? I'm trying to think of kind of comparables. We saw Sebastian legit get just a two game suspension for a homophobic slur that he was caught using. But we've also seen cases like deloy Hansen, the owner for rail saw Lake, who eventually lost his team over allegations of racism. So there's a lot of gray area there for what MLS could do here. I'll tell you this. D.C. United has two games left in their regular season. I can't imagine that we will see taxi playing for D.C. united again. This season, again, that's if these allegations are corroborated by Major League Soccer. And I would be very surprised if he starts next season. This would probably be a very lengthy suspension, one that lasts into the next campaign for D.C. United. And something we saw there as well Shaka was that the players and the coaches have taken things into their own hands there and saying that we're not going to continue if he continues on the pitch. And I thought that was a sensible approach by the players and to the service point as much as you expect MLS will have their investigation. I despite what tax advantage may be seeing on social media. I'm not sure how he gets away with this. Given that other players from inter Miami corroborated, what was said or allegedly said, given the fact that both marriages came together on the sidelines and he was substituted, the referees couldn't take any further action because they hadn't heard it themselves. But as far as president gauze, we are two weeks short of two years to the D, junior Fleming, but playing in the USL for Phoenix rising was accused of using a hobo for mcslug against Colin Martin. Donovan was in charge of San Diego loyal at the time. And they refused to come back on the pitch. They forfeited the game, but he stood by his player who said that that junior Fleming had user a homophobic slur against him. Junior Fleming was suspended 6 games. So at the very least, that is where that is your precedent. To semi's point, we will not. Be seeing him again this season, two games, and we won't see him for the first, as I say. At the very least, first four or 5 games of next season either. Fantastic has that to look forward to despite what he may be claiming. The league have also said their own mark. There are zero zero tolerance policy league and we expect them to act as such. Because that's what we are dealing with these days as well. Players can make a statement themselves. They can push that pressure to it, and that's always been a good thing to say. Thanks so much for being with us. We'll keep everybody up to date with what happens

"A lot of novice. I just think, I think for me, even though the goals against says they're very good defensively, that might be also a concern. If I were ever to be a pessimistic American, but you know in how I am with my fandoms, I can be pessimistic. You. Time to time. Let's stay on the kluba America train and we'll focus in here next. Okay? Why? Because ESPN is reporting that the U.S. men's national team is continuing to follow the progress of the dual national attackers having a great season with asagi Las in Liga MX. Was born in Mexico, raised in El Paso, is represented the U.S. at youth national team level, and he's also played for Mexico as we know into senior friendlies. Now, despite the apparent interest her important to note, sources are telling ESPN Mexico, there's been no direct contact between zendejas and U.S. soccer. All right, herc. So time is running out. We've got the September friendlies coming up. Should the United States and Greg berhalter call up Alejandro Zendaya. Yes, you should call them up. And people are going to start naming Christian Pulisic, Timothy way up, Brendan aaronson, Giovanni Reina, but we're stacked in the wings are going to say all these fans who are the U.S. men's national team. He's not really a winger. And when he broke out on Liga and Mickey, it was with Nick axa as an interior as an 8 where he was the highest goal scoring Mexican in ligaments. He had his breakout year playing in that position. And when I look at the names, when I look at the depth chart for the U.S. men's national team in the midfield, you've got two locks. You've got western McKinney as an 8 and you got Eunice Musa as an 8. Then there's Lucca de la Torre, and then you have wait a second. Where am I going here? Because Greg berhalter was using Christian roll done. He was using Sebastian legit. There's been a strong cry for people about Jordy. And Malik Tillman. And I've been on that train. We mentioned as a potential player in midfield to move, right? But if you had to go straighten out, just midfielders, this is where I think Zendaya has could not only compete and fight for, but maybe push out one or two guys. So if you're telling me that he can't swim in that very, very shallow and after you're talking about the locks I don't believe you and through the history of the U.S. mint national team released a recent history, we've seen surprises every World Cup cycle. You look at 2014, it was John Brooks, Julian green. You look at 2010, Robbie Finley, Etsy bottle, your boy, 2006, Clint Dempsey, Jimmy Conrad, was it Eddie Johnson, 2002, polymer master, these two kids named DeMarcus Beasley and Landon Donovan, who had like a handful if that a World Cup qualifying games. So there's been surprises in all more than Zendaya's.

"I'm going to go ask the Dallas. I'm going to go FC Dallas here. And here's why. The old expression tells us, right? Defense wins championships. Out of everybody in the west, outside of LAFC. The team that gives up the fewest goals is FC Dallas, okay? So I think right there, they have a big edge. Not only are they good defensively, they are much better hook than Austin defensively, who shipped three this weekend, three last weekend, and two weeks before that ship four against the New York Red Bulls, right? You gotta be defensively sound herc when it comes to the playoffs. Plus, let's not pretend like FC Dallas doesn't have firepower, right? We got a riola, we got velasco, and we got Jesus Ferrero who had a brace over the weekend and I think is now up to 14 goals on the season. You don't give FC Dallas and he love you really think defenses is that little of a priority come playoff time. No, I just think there are two seasons. There's a regular season, and then there's playoffs. And I've seen FC Dallas in the playoffs throughout their history. It's not a team like trust. Nicolas de you may have changed things. Paul areola, this is feda, everything that Sebastian legit now, who, by the way, backed a couple assists. This weekend, it could be a different team. Sure, but a sale smells like Seattle sounders a bounce them in the playoffs. Okay. Okay, okay. Interesting that you mentioned that. I will note neither of us neither of us picked the LA galaxy as the biggest threat to LA. So let's get to the bad and it is in the Pacific Northwest, where the aforementioned

"That story is the revs, total collapse in Mexico, city after having a three zero lead after the first leg. Herk on Twitter, you called it a choke job. Yeah, massive choke job. So let me explain, so you and I said there's no chance 'cause I'm thinking books. Josie, Gustavo Bo, Sebastian legit, like offensive juggernaut that they are. They're gonna score one go one away go, but then I'm sitting at home and I'm thinking to myself about boomers and what they've done, I'm like, man, they wouldn't not try to score a goal. They gotta get an wiggle, like they know they have to attack. They know they have to go up almost somewhat. They can't sit back because boomers, like they've done this before and I'm thinking to myself and I even tweeted the warning. I tweeted the warning and after the first goal, go back and look at the warning. After the second goal, go back and look at the warning. You need your away goal. They never got their away goal. And pumas did what they did. It was a massive choke job. They don't know what pressure is. And they, they, and I will get into it, is Major League Soccer. Okay, let's get into that in a second. I do want to point out some of the comments because if you're surprised by this, you were not really listening to Bruce arena before the match. He said, we don't need goals. They do. We don't need to score. They do. One goal is all the revs wouldn't need. And that would have been 5 concave of course like the only place in the world where a way goes still matters. So one goal would have meant that pumas needed a 5 to advance. I'm interested in your point about MLS. I want to get to that in a second, but a few more things from Bruce Serena post. He pointed out mistakes and altitude. Both are things that he's not directly involved in, right? Mistakes are of the players altitude is of the is of the environment. It's something beyond the coaches control. When he was asked about his tactics hurt, he was very short, but he was asked basically if he got it right. And he answered in the affirmative. Yes, did Bruce arena get his tactics right here? No, he didn't get it right because he sat back that said, a lot of the blame is also on the players Adam books that could have put this in way himself. He could have put this game away himself. He missed two all by himself, one of those two goes in. It forces puma to score 5. Boomers with one goal in. Now needing 5, the spirit is broken. You've broken the back of the cats. It's that easy. That's simple. But you don't have that in you. You don't have the pressure. You don't know what it's like, it's a tale as old as time, Major League Soccer in Mexico. You fold, you buckle because you don't know what pressure is. Promotion relegation, all these things. Are you saying there's not enough meaningful games in MLS? Are you exactly what I'm saying? What I'm saying because you go out and you lose a game, nothing happens. You can go about thankfully in your own city, have dinner, drink a beer with your buddies, nothing will happen. Do you know what happened and say, well, if you lose this game, do you know what happened to Mexico City? You think they're going to go out at night? You think they're going to go out to the grocery store to have a beer? Do you think they're going to be with their family members in public? No. Thankfully, that is not the case. But the pressure, the pressure and I've seen this with my own eyes, I used to play versatile laguna, and I was in a Zach same tournament against MLS club's teams. We go and we lose the Seattle sounders two one in Seattle. We tie one one in Toronto. They come back to torion, they would eat 5 of peace. Because the moment one goes in, it's a deer in the headlights, look, the spirit is broken. They don't know what is overcome. It's this emotional paralysis that sets in for these players. The moment is bigger than them. And we're talking about players that have played in world cups. We're talking about players that have been there done that. But there's a select for you. These millionaire players are select few. You need a roster to understand what that is. They don't understand what that is. And the moment the first one went in, I knew this game was over. The jet out the door. Those are guys with big time experience, but I guess for the New England revolution against pumas in this quarterfinal, the Concacaf Champions League. Elsewhere in the CCL, we had New York City.

"That's where we thought the gap was that MLS teams are closing and it felt like these two teams in the revs and the sounders and I think NYCFC, got there. That clearly was not. But let me challenge you on that one. And I'm not going to say the word that I can not say. But Sebastian legit has talked about how he's not fully comfortable yet in the role that he has in the team. From two games against unknown Haitian team. I'm not saying I'm not saying it would be like from zero to a hundred, but it might be from zero to 20. You might have had opportunities for John bell and Omar to play together a little bit more because you can rest the other guys. I'm just saying there's more reps more of a rhythm more of a game rhythm going into this. More of an opportunity to even just protect leads and have in your mind. Okay, here's how we do it. We can do it. It's not the same competition, and I'll let this go now. And let's ask the bigger question. This is a revolution team that knows they're going to lose, maybe for sure, Matt Turner, it seems. And maybe books on the summer. There's no guarantee that they'll have an opportunity to or they'll be in an MLS Cup final, et cetera. They got to earn that blah blah blah. They were in this competition with an opportunity to move into the semifinals. They're in this competition with an opportunity to make history. How disappointing how much of a failure is this to fall short in this way in this moment. For this revs team, given what how they're built and what's going to change for them. I think it's, I think, failure, oh, it is what it is. It is a failure. It's going to be super nice. It is a failure. It's not catastrophic if you look at their bigger body of work that they have ahead of them. Yes, in the concave Champions League competition. Whenever you have a three zero lead going to Mexico, it's been proven that no lead is safe,.

"About the team Andrew. This is what you like to say. This is our fourth year with Matthias, and to be honest, the cohesiveness within the group, I don't think has been stronger. We brought in some really, really good guys, guys who are personality who have been in MLS who've been in a lot of locker rooms. Being here for a while and seeing how San Jose works, I think this is one of the stronger teams that we have. So we're not too focused on the outside noise and what's happening. Even the coach only speaks about day in and day out. We're getting ready for the game on Saturday. Of the MLS baffins that you all know, only one of them have San Jose at 7th place in the west. That's the best they have them. Everybody else in the brains trust has them at 11th, 12th and 13th. So. I don't know why. It's not like they've got bad players, but he's had situations not unlike the Elsa where they'll play a man for man and get caught open. So I don't know what to expect. I honestly. It sounds like you do. They'll be bad. Yeah, it doesn't sound like you don't. Yeah, but like I said, you know, I did try to say why you might go, like Greg us is a good sign in. Okay, you didn't sell. You didn't sell it hard enough. I'm sorry. You only sold the negative, JJ. All right, well, I'm sorry. Okay. And then finally, I think blankety blank are the best team in the league. Wasn't with at least a little bit of pause that I said this, but I don't know. Call me old fashioned, looking back at last season. But I went with the revs. I went with New England vaults. And I say it with some pause because they've lost tejon Buchanan to club Bruges, they're going to lose Matt Turner, of course, to arsenal later this summer. There's a chance that it sounds like they're going to lose Adam books this summer as well. It sounds like they tried to get rid of them just recently the most recent transfer window and it didn't go through, but they're going to try again. But there's still loaded. And what's more is you look at how they're loaded and you can see, okay, this is a team that is just straight up going for it. When you bring in guys like Josie, Omar Gonzalez, Sebastian legit, like this is not a team building for tomorrow. This is about right now. We saw what we were last season, really, really great, but just like couldn't quite get over the top, so they're going to try to bring in guys who they believe are capable of doing that. Who have done that? So, I mean, lots of talent all over the place. Josie is the interesting one. We talked about that. And we kind of said that it's fitness, not necessarily talent. That's his issue. So if you look at the way this could go for New England, like Adam book, so while he's there, might be more of their mainstay. And then if he departs over the summer as is what's expected, well then Josie can slot in. Like it's not like they may not need to ask Josie to be the guy for them all throughout the season. If he comes in kind of midsummer, gets informed and then that may be ideal for him rather than having to carry the load week and week out. So we'll see, Carlos heal obviously reigning league MVP. Tremendous player, but here's the thing that I wonder about them. And we're thinking of MLS cup and supporters shield and stuff like that. I'm with this team kind of thing and a little bit more about right now. And the cocky caf Champions League, which they advanced to the quarterfinals by default. They could do this. I think that they could do this. And it's great to win an MLS cup and support a shield, but lots of teams have done that only one can win the Kaka Champions League..

"Now those details are out. It's official 1.3 million in gam. It's a little bit misleading. Maybe you could say, 'cause it's 300 K and gam in 22 223 we're seeing a lot of these trades split it over multiple years and then it's 800,000 gam and incentives look now you have a midfield of pollster you assume pollster legit and Carlos heal, maybe poster could play on the wing a little bit if you don't have an exact conversation. He's a 6. With just the 6. No. You said pulse around the way. Closer. Oh, don't say, legit could play the way. You said Paul. What do you think of the trade, Dave? What do you think? Legit to the revs. The big thing to me with smashing a jet is he's like his flexibility. He can be a winger in this league and he can be an 8 in this league or a ten if you really need him in a pinch. And so for any team bringing him in, that's like the number one is, well, he can fit with everyone. And then you add in the success he's had, the quality he has, I think what he meant for that like galaxy locker room and some tough moments. And obviously with the revs, he has experience with Bruce arena. And so it just feels like you're losing tajon. Sebastian legit doesn't give you the attacking explosiveness that tejon buchan gives you. But if trust us in hits, great. If he doesn't, legit can play out there. If he does, then you can play legit farther central. If you want to limit Carlos heels, maybe minutes over the course of the year to keep him fresh or you're worried about injuries that he's had over the last few years. He can also fill in there. So that's the appeal with legit and it just makes sense for a rev seam that's sort of in a win now mode to not push the can down on replacing Taysom or using that money, use it now for a guy who can help you now..

"Men's national team. And you think you're going to have more of the ball, you want to pass out of the back than maybe John Anthony Brooks comes into the team. He struggles going forward and back. Is athleticism, but he's the cleanest player on the ball. If not, maybe it's Mark McKenzie, but Mark McKenzie has been iffy defensively. And who does he partner with? And then you look at walker Zimmerman and his ability to just come forward and dominate in the air and chase players down in all those things. Richards can do all of that. And so I think Chris Richards, if he can elevate himself to a level to be able to play alongside miles Robinson, he can be a huge solution for the U.S. and he's such a young player that you want to give him opportunities to prove himself and to learn. What we've seen over the course of this cycle is Timothy way. I had an awful game against Panama and now he's the best player on the U.S. must national team. It takes some time. And these are learning experiences for these players. So Chris Richards made sense, and I thought he was solid in this game. Most of what Mikel Antonio did was down the left and that's kind of what he's done in his three games for Jamaica. So I guess I could say that's what he always does. And Leon Bailey didn't really find that much space and credit to Anthony Robinson as well for kind of locking him down a couple of times. So I thought Richard's had a solid game with busio talked a little bit about him getting bypassed in midfield and the battles and all that stuff. I think busio is a guy in going back to this is concave Franco qualifying. It's a crappy field in Jamaica against javan Watson, who could be his father and everyone's playing super physical. I don't think this is a game for John Lucas. I don't know that it ever will be. Maybe he'll be good enough at the things he's great at to survive in a game like this, but I think with the options you have for the U.S. because you're not looking at two guys, you could have gone with kamikaze. You could go with Sebastian legit, obviously if mckenney's healthy, he's an option, Christian rolled on. Hasn't gotten a start in the entire tournament. And he's one of the best central midfielders in Major League Soccer. You do have other options for guys who I would say fit this game better. But at the same time, I think if you go into Europe and you play someone, you know, if you play Germany, the busio maybe is the better player for a game like that. So I think it was a tough situation. He got put in. But everything Greg berhalter has said over the last ten days is he believes busio is a key part of what this team can be..

"Deal with Vanessa. And the brief stint he played against Costa Rica that he was a tremendous in the limited time we got him to see him, but he's really expanded his game. I thought he struggled in the goal cup. I thought he was one of the big players. We had hopes for big hopes for and he struggled. While he's putting some of those doubts to RAS, he's getting to be a better player on and off the ball. Both sides of the ball and venetia. And I think it's a player that gives you a little versatility. Yeah? He's not that ball winner 'cause part of me thinks he's gonna go with Kellen o'clock instrument. He likes that physicality. He likes the athleticism and the defensive effort that Kalani Costa gives you. But if you really want to add another element of buildup of play, creativity, even set pieces. I think John Lucas is your man and I would go with luzio. Okay, so you mentioned boozy oh, you mentioned Kellen Acosta. You haven't mentioned two names in which we know are options for Greg berhalter, but also we know will upset some U.S. men's national team. Sebastian legit, Christian rolled on. What are the odds that you think we see either of those two guys either as a starter or as a sub in Jamaica? Pretty high. Yeah, I think rolled down as a sub absolutely. You're going to see him Greg berhalter enjoys what he gets out of a busy roll down and roll down to his credit. He creates things. He may not get on the score sheet with the goal or an assist, but he's always one of those guys that presses the right moment creates things for his teammates. He's a very good teammate, which is very hard to find at any level. He's one of those guys that Gregor halter knows what he gets from him and Sebastian legit. He just seems to be one of the confidants of Greg ber haltern. I know he's at his up and downs, but Sebastian legit at his peak at his best U.S. misogyny is a very capable player. I just don't think he's in a very good moment right now. Short answer here. We know we're going to see at least two changes because they're forced. We know he's not going to start scallion so you're not going to get that change which is one that you want to see. You did just beat Mexico to nothing like, don't you have to reward the other 9 guys by keeping them in the lineup, especially without the need for rotations. I would almost assume that you can't really make changes here. I wouldn't make try to you hit it out of the park when you said. This is a two game window. You don't treat it like a three game win, and you think you have to make these changes. So why did you want to put scallion for yedlin? Because I want to get him that experience. I think this is when you get his feet wet. We talked about it in the pre game show in the post show about how Joe scally should have been brought in last window. Well, if you're already late to that, and you think sergino dest might not be durable, you think there will be a chance for Joe scally at the right back or left back position because he's played both with glide back. You bring him in, you get him acclimated and you get him going. This can no longer be an excuse about this experience in Concacaf. When it comes to Christian Pulisic, the term judgment call was used her. Your judgment, if you're the manager, do you start Christian politic in Jamaica? Well, this changes with the Mexico win. You have the luxury of having that. When you don't need to stress out and think Christian political has to be your go to guy and also Greg for halter has already tipped his hand. He said that the field.

"Eunice Moussa's back in, but you have a couple different players in there as well. Sebastian legit, Kellen Acosta. And I think it's a cliche Taylor, but it really feels like this game is lost in midfield. What do we make of the different levels of play that we see three days apart from a midfield trio that wall is different still has one guy in it that's the same, and that's unusual. Yeah, what's concerning for me, her concept is this is that there really is only one 6 on this roster. And that's Tyler Adams. And the moment you take Tyler Adams out of the middle, everything looks discombobulated. Everything looks unhinged, and it doesn't feel comfortable within the system. Yes, he came off the bench in this one, but there was energy immediately to the game. Everyone had a little bit more pep in their step, whatever it may be, there was a few more options to pass the ball through the midfield and whatnot. I think western mckenney at times plays as if he wants to run the show as if he's the guy that can run the show. I don't think he's that type of player, and I think he needs to transform mores to the guy that we saw at Schalke. And so I understand the area concern, and I get it. But I'm still, and I know I'm beating a dead horse here, but they're not creating a ton of chances. The final product isn't there all the time. And I know great bear alternate staff love the model of expected goals, but when you look at the last 13 games that I'm beaten, it's not as if they're creating two three four expected goals every single game. And so chances are extremely limited for this team. So no matter what it is, and I understand if Tyler Adams is healthy, the midfields less of a concern for me, but regarding Ricardo Pepe up front or not. This team still struggles to score goals. And Eric, I don't know if you've seen the same thing I have yet why can they not score goals in the first half and then have to react? Change things and come out the second half. That in a nutshell is a problem. Yeah, and instead he was alluding to that earlier on in the segment where you talk about he got things right a half time. His adjustments were correct and they weren't this go around. That's still begs the question, why are you starting that way? Now we talk about Greg bertram, stani wants to implement and Taylor, you're right, he loves he's expected goals. He's very much excuse the term. Statin nerd when it comes to that. A PowerPoint nerd. But the football has been played that way. Football isn't played with numbers, played with feeling, it's played with instincts. And this is the problem. We talk about him being a possession based coach. This team being a possession based team, for ten halves, they've not been that. They've had two good halves, 8 very bad halves. And you look at the outside backs to me very important because when those acts outside effects have been good and taken care of the ball, it gets the center of the midfield going. It gets Tyler Adams. It gets western McKinney. Whoever's in there, younes Musa whoever's in there involved which gets their junior desk, Antony Robinson. When those fullbacks are good, when they take care of the ball, the team has confidence when they don't, they rely on their center backs to come out with it, and it's root one and it's very, very ugly. It feels a lot of the times like there's home run swings on these lineups, right? And sometimes it hits. Sometimes it doesn't. And I don't know if those risks are necessary, but I assume Gregg halter knows the depth of his of his talent pool better than we do. Let me ask this. Before we move on from the Panama game real quick. Panama in this match was Concacaf to an extreme almost. There's a point where you can have the stretchers come out as much as you want. But there's a difference to me like another line that's crossed when folks are running onto the field at very convenient moments and balls are coming in at very convenient moments. You guys have lived through all the shenanigans of Concacaf. And I know we accept games mention to a point in this region. Did it cross a line into cheating Taylor last night? Well, I mean, what do we expect from Concacaf guys? We're doing a World Cup qualifying round without VAR. And so you guys obviously heard me during the first half of Jamaica, absolutely blow a gasket on this. It's mind boggling to me. And yet you literally had fans running onto the field in beta on city asking for selfies. There were three balls on the field at one point. At what point is Concacaf's gonna look at itself and say, you know what? Fine. But I remind everyone watching this show. In 2017, Panama qualified for the World Cup on a goal that never went in. A goal that never went in. Was parents headed it and went outside the nets came back in. It was all about and went in and they give it a goal because of no VAR. They're like, it's good. Enjoy Russia. I don't know what to do. I don't see her. Expect the unexpected when it comes to concave half is the way I look at it. But you're right. That's the way it's always been, and that's the way it will be in the only way it's going to change is if you implement things like var and I understand most stadiums aren't set up to be quick with var, but those who have it should be allowed to use it. It's very simple to me. And Concacaf, it's known for the dark arts, it's known for stretching its rules, probably more than the Taylor's wearings being stretched. It's the way it is. Taylor, you'll be in Columbus for the game against Costa Rica. Let's look forward to that match for just a second. All right, so you got Greg berhalter's here. You can tell one player that he's gotta put back into the starting lineup for this game. Columbus is easy against Costa Rica. Based on what you said, I think we know who it's going to be, but who is it? It's Tyler Adams. I'm not moving them. I'm not making the fact that he started the first half at right back against Honduras was mind boggling to me..

"By these fans. So a lot of fans who see Major League Soccer has a polarizing entity who see Major League Soccer players as a weak link within the U.S. men's national team. I don't buy into that, but Greg ber Holter and these players getting these results in the cirque essential way is feeding this narrative. And it's not a good thing to have this type of divide. Maybe the only national team in the world where there is this what's the word to say, where is this spike of the domestic league with its players? I think farc is just backing sergeant here. He just doesn't want to say that it's because he's dropped out of form. That's why he's not called in. So he's kind of providing another excuse. If I'm a U.S. fan or a sergeant fan, I kind of like it. Your managers back in your guide. The other point is if you had called in Josh Sargent, you're probably only getting him for what? Two of the three games. I mean, if we look at the examples of Antony Robinson, if we look at the example of Zack Stefan, they don't make the trip to Panama. It is on the UK red list. So Josh sergeant had he scored in those first three games? You bet they would have called him in, even if he's only available for 2003. That tie breakers held against fair enough, but that the martino got raul he managed for all three games and even with reckless country. So make that take it for what it's worth. All right, let's bring in Taylor twin, and then he joins us to discuss more of the fallout from the United States one nothing defeat against Panama in Panama City. Taylor, you just had to listen to us prattle on there for a little while. Who do you think is more to blame? The manager or the players? You two are the best. I absolutely love this show. Every single time I'm on it. Honestly, Greg burr said it's on him, right? Gregg said it's on him and his staff. And so he answers the question for us. And so he raises his hand. He takes accountability and says it is on him. I completely agree with her and you, Seb in the sense that if you look at what Germany did, if you look at what the Netherlands did against lesser opponents, they rotated maybe three players. Not 7. And so you're over calculating in your overthinking this three days of travel and high heat and whatever. This is World Cup qualifying. You have to get as many points as you can get as quickly as possible no matter who's in front of you. And so for me, there's a way over calculation about the travel and the humidity and heat which by the way for the record, if you are going to make 7 changes in that kind of weather, it behooves you to use Major League Soccer players that have been planned in that weather for the last four months. So how those players showed up and laid an egg with no energy, no enthusiasm, nothing whatsoever is beyond me, but this is on the manager, because in my opinion, the rest of the world is still treating every single opponent the same way by rotating the squad with two or three players, not an overhaul of 7 players against a team that Mexico struggled playing down there as you said her. Any team that's played Panama in Panama has struggled. So the proof is in the pudding. You've seen it. Panama is a better team than they have been in years past quite honestly than when we've gone down there. Myself in the generation ahead of us that went down there and got results. And so I just think there was way too much overthinking in this and they under calculated how good Panama is at home and they're overthinking this way too much at times about fitness and about travel and all of this. When the rest of the world is doing similar types of things. Now in saying that Seb, I'm with you in this extent. The players have some accountability, my word. It's one thing to talk about tactics in technique and hers tweeted this and he's a 100% right about arrogance. But the first thing you got to have, the first thing you've got to have is energy. You've got to have the ability to run compete and fight. If you don't even have that, I can't even talk about the other stuff because you're not providing the simple fundamental thing, which is run through a wall and play for your country, which they got none of that last night, and four years ago, the United States lost a Trinidad and Tobago. This was almost an identical performance that made everyone want to puke because she didn't get to compete factor first. Talk about tactics later. But give me the compete. And give me the fights and then we'll worry about whether or not you can pass the ball. But if you're not gonna run what's the point of showing up? Yeah, let me run something by you. Okay, 'cause I heard this narrative about running about trying about intensity. And that's all that's all good. It looks good from afar. But have you ever been Taylor? Have you ever been in an environment where your legs feel weak? We're all of a sudden the opponents on top of you where you see the crowd and you're like, I don't see this weekend week out. And in the goal comes in and you feel like the world is coming down on you. I saw that from these players. So we can talk about trying we can talk about competing. We can talk about intensity. We can talk about desire all that stuff. But if you've never been there done that, that seems so that's something to be said there. Okay. Experiences a real thing, her, the experiences of real thing. It's a great point. It's a real thing. One of the things that came out of the first match was how everybody was in love with this new young midfield. The midfield trio that Greg berhalter uses in Austin against Jamaica, right? Wesson McKinney Tyler Adams Eunice Musa. Obviously, there's some limitations there, right? Tyler Adams, he's told us Gregg halter that he's got to watch those minutes. He hasn't been playing with Leipzig 90 minutes a game. He's not going to risk him here. Wesley McKinney, we know wasn't available for this match. Eunice Moussa's back in, but you have a couple different players in there as well. Sebastian legit, Kellen Acosta. And I think it's a cliche Taylor, but it really feels like this game is lost in.

Listen to read tabletop via stefan's as part of the mike duda podcast network available on the iheartradio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts news this is the third line side. Believe that we will win believe that we will win last night. Was that no one men's national team. Oh the honduras yes by the way. The first half was discouraging. Did you notice what was interesting was there. Subs did all the scoring like the wrong. Starting group out there yet. it was. It was a wild night. It was it was fun to watch on twitter because for as much as we all argue with each other all day about everything that we can't agree on anything when it comes to our football teams men's and women's we are all in and we are stressed out and that was stressful. Last night. i didn't play weston mckennie. They had two of their starters. Weren't there they had a very interesting team is that i just don't feel dynamic in the midfield. I don't think we create much and a first half it was ugly. It was blake pressures on after missing the world cup in two thousand eighteen and after two consecutive draws opened the qualifying rounds. The us finally got a win last night against honduras they did start off. Slow and trailed one nothing leading to three substitutions at the half which you mentioned but the star of the match eighteen year old ricardo peppy who scored a goal and had two assists in his debut and they roared back four. Two one win. Pepe committed to play for the mexico just two weeks ago significant it is and also in the second minute. Christian pulisic was substituted off. He hurt his ankle. It looked serious. He needed treatment. After a challenge and then fell the ground after trying to sprint on a dribble so going to have to monitor that obviously anthony robinson ricardo peppy brendan aaronson and sebastian legit all scored so we have five points and three matches of the fourteen world qualifying matches so though they'll play the next qualifying cycle on october seventh that starts to play jamaica panama and costa rica so they are third in the standings behind mexico and canada. The top three teams qualify for the world cup four -sition qualified off of intercontinental playoff. So in a good situation now not great. Good situation pressure still on but that was a nice nice confidence boosting win and they overcame. I like to see if you start slow. It's a little struggle. it's clunky overcome. that's what i like to see to me. That's growth so. I was in curbs encourage last night. My being too optimistic no i mean i just think i worry about weston mckennie. What where. He's one of our top three young players. And i just did a head. Shaking that game against match against canada was a wasted opportunity. Yes yes that was. But i like the recovery boys. Let's keep going so. Baker mayfield is eligible for contract extension with the browns team has not made any substantial contract talks with him yet. That doesn't seem to be an issue for baker though supporters in the plan all along and both sides are cool with entering the season with out a deal in place. They picked up his fifth year. Option for twenty twenty two. Well he was a number-one pick so he he did make decent money. Yes and he's well liked. Consider the commercial money. And all that. Although i mean cleveland's not a big market right so like when you talk dallas when people were talking about this with dallas. There's some value to being the quarterback dallas cowboys which you could definitely argue if you are the jones family like. Hey you know it's funny. We always dallas cowboys in the world. It's always funny. We always call like certain cities small market. So cleveland has the rock and roll hall of fame baseball team an nba team. An nfl team. I do not that small now. They're not that smart of major air for markets in dallas. Right there but you know it's funny everybody now like in baseball. It's like oh minneapolis. Minnesota is a small market team. Minnesota's got more fortune. Five hundred companies been all but about five cities in the country like cnn. They say that about pittsburgh elvis. There's a major corporations every university carnegie mellon. They got major universities. You sit research center. Morris pittsburgh's baseball's got a problem and it's called no salary cap so when pittsburgh minneapolis and seattle or called small markets in denver those are not small markets. Those are international destinations. Were corporate hubs. Cleveland's not that small. No it's not but but when you're talking about marketing generally you think dallas. La new york jealous miami. But like. I don't really like to consider that as a part of you know what baker is going to make like. That's that's not necessarily what he does for a living. Is those commercials. Although louis does have a lot of them. I don't think this is a bad situation for baker to be and we were talking about earlier there sort of tears. There's guys you know are automatically josh allen just in herbert yeah yes but like the argument is should what should he paid and should he make this a should he make that the market dictates what you make if if it's set at a certain level for a certain type of player you're probably going to make around that and sometimes you'll make more than that even if you're not necessarily as good of a player as that player that was paid because the next gets more and so on and so forth generally. That's how it works. Even in the salary catholic. It's gonna go up for quarterbacks. The market's been set but for baker like the argument. He's not patrick mahomes. Well yeah. Nobody's patrick mahomes. Except for patrick mahomes. Yeah then. Nobody's tom brady except for tom brady. There's aaron rodgers. there's not that many guys. So what are your options. baker. Mayfield as winning games. He is completely bought in an embrace that city. They love they love him. There's extreme value in that if you're an organization he doesn't have to be. Do you think the question is Dj daniel jeremiah. Bucky brooks this. Confetti guy could you win a super bowl with baker. May well if you had the right pieces around him. I believe that you could and if you can. I'm probably closer to know. But matt ryan came within a catch from julian edelman and i never saw matt ryan confetti guy but anyway i mean maybe what matt ryan contract is joe. Flacco and nick foles. Were confetti guys. So yes baker would be confetti. Got so if you feel like you can win a super bowl yes. All things considered baker may foles change. Everything i mean seriously. I mean joe. Flacco is a good argument for that too because joe flacco nick foles a backup. Joe flacco is legitimate. There's this wasn't twenty years ago. The game was passing league when flacco on it. And when nick foles want it so yes i mean there's kirk cousins. I don't see a confetti guy. he's the line there mean. He's the long that's very. Yeah he's the he's the guy. He's the last quarterback. Derek kharami could be a confetti guy. Kirk is the most talented guy in the league that you don't think i don't think so. I think baker falls into that and damn darnold.

He knows his limitations as an athlete by he's a really clever soccer player and he was feeling himself a little bit and he kind of opened the game for the rest of the guys in and he was he was one of the ones who i noticed coming right out of the break taking up. I think a little bit more advanced positions and being a little bit riskier and and kind of showing the confidence. Not only that he could pull off the play but that his teammates were gonna win the ball. Get him the ball in good spots to make stuff happen so he i mean he was a huge difference maker asking a goal and assist Ruled on..

Over the last couple of seasons he may be a de facto started. This is what i learned in that. You're absolutely right there when you go. The majority of these players thirteen of zero minutes on the senior national team team. Okay and a rosters comprise compiled a twenty three players. That's over half already. We don't have any national team experience. You want me to concede that this is not a c team. Do the law of averages yourself look at the eighty team you could probably sebastian legit.

Those are the guys that i'm talking about. The point here is that for you make it an eighteen. What are we doing here. Not of the eleven players half of them are arab players. That doesn't make it a c team. It may not be an eighteen at somewhere in between which is a be the bottom line. Here is the bottom line. Here is what westminster where you went to school. Donate shots at my college. I won't take shots at yours. Look the bottom line is that we're yes thank you. She did point of view of the bottom line here. Is we're arguing semantics. It's very very petty and small. The difference mutates seating if you're a mexico fan whether you're eighteen lost to a team or seating really shouldn't matter that much it's humiliating either way. It's a huge embarrassed from a fan perspective. So what. I'm curious as to know from you is. Why do you think this like struck. Such a core because i'm not on twitter as much as you still people. Usa in mexico fans going at it back and forth and my mentions right now twenty four hours more than twenty four hours after we were talking about. Let me give you a lesson for the longest time. The mexican fan base had the superiority over the american fan base because the nineties and before were owned by mexico then come to thousands and the us gets competitive not only competitive. They kick you out of a world cup thousand two and for the better part of almost two decades. They're competing with you. Then all of a sudden they don't make the world cup we're back but what happens the. Us's exporting players at this incredible rate and now they beat you in two finals in forty days and you're not exporting these players. It's going to sting because it's that devos's because major league soccer which they know. They think they shouldn't say they think they know lee is better than so. That's why it stinks. And it's one of those you'll never get back. Us will always be able to say just like the world cup and we said this before that we got one over on you and we got one over on you with our beat team which i will say my friends in the text chain.

"It looked like a four three three three three on paper but they were opened depressing. They were opening counterattacking but they didn't park the bus and they were still at their best in transition in those critical moments and then also ultimately on restart that we talk about the fact that yes.

America's we gave them the extra glad hurt. We'll tell you this whether it's going to be an issue. You have to wonder how much that could play against the us. Men's national team because this is going to be a much more organized team a team is going to treat the ball a lot better martinique and if you're martinique knowing that the weather can play a factor in a defender slips or there's miscommunication or any different type of circumstances that can dirty the game Maybe tilt the gaming your favorite or more of the balancing. Your favorite that goes to martinique. Yeah definitely I i mean they. They lost bad the other day. I'm sure they want to come back. And and and have a better percentation a better show on the field. Definitely the weakest team of this group But they didn't show much. And i know they're stronger front. The coach boho talked about that. But the reality is is that this Us team is much better. I was listening to you guys. I agree with most of it That i gain. They haven't been together that much but there was a lot of positive on this team. And i'm sure that today They're going to want to go one notch higher and and this is what what they're building on to make it to the final winner. Remember they said. This is not an experiment. They're coming here to win it and they gotta go game by game and this is a a great opportunity. They need to create more situations They need to to keep the ball. More in midfield. And i think it's a great scenario rano rain so i'm looking for for Some good stuff.

"sebastian legit" Discussed on Caught Offside

"F s one where the guys were talking about there being like brazilian fans who wanted to see messy win. And i'm gonna just like. I like john strong. Do holden so i'm going to. I'm going to believe them. Although it's impossible for me to believe that not in a in country like brazil actual plenty of brazilians. Appreciate what mris but that is going to fair. That's what i thought not buying that. I'd like to know of brazilians that we're talking to. Yeah i thought similarly so props to messy he. He shared the golden ball for this tournament. I believe it was him and neymar. That both took home. The honors fittingly. Both they're good friends so yeah and they embraced afterwards Look to be a pretty long embraced nice moment. But they both had very good tournaments. Both messy had in the end. Four goals five assists which is phenomenal over the course of fairly short tournament. I think they both created twenty one chances. Both both guys are brilliant players and the final was interesting. Because like you said. Jj of echoed a lot of the tournament in that like obviously the second half the last ten minutes of that game riveting because it felt like a goal was coming from either team. Messy was one with the keeper score so it felt like something was gonna happen and in the end it didn't so the last ten minutes were riveting but god. The first half was tough to watch. Twenty-one fouls i mean it was like it was just like every ten seconds whistle whistle hard foul argument between player. There was no flow to it at ask. This is rough. There was only. I mean between them. They only mustered four shots on target to each the whole ninety minutes. So you know now. Live to ron manager for some additional thoughts on cup finals finals. Aren't they tough. Aren't they never know who's going to win. Oh that was a nasty foul brazilian. Wasn't he loved that guy the grid characters. Yeah and like. I said the other guy. I wanted to mention this. I mentioned before unhealthy. Maria scoring the winning goal. He was kind of pushed out almost of the argentinian picture. Like we talk a little bit. Sometimes about thomas muller mats hummels guys who were kind of out of the german picture and they were brought back in it. Felt like de maria was trending in that direction and even still i think this is only his second start in this tournament like he's not for argentina. It doesn't seem all the time that he is what he is for. Ps g so that had to feel good for him like you said it. Kinda came somewhat courtesy of brazilian mistake. But he had a lot to do with it. Great ship of the keeper and it snapped a career-long thirteen games scoring drought for him with argentina. It was his first goal. Jj for argentina since the two thousand eighteen world cup game against france that What was four three that one. Yeah the four three and he scored an absolutely brilliant golden game. Yeah so. I felt good for him as well. I'm sure that was you know. I think i saw a quote beforehand of messy de maria said after the match that nessie had told him before the game. This is your final and de. Maria took that clearly to heart and scored finished brilliantly. Absolutely brilliant with the with. Edison common flying on him. It was really really good this weekend. Between br like brazil argentina at americana and then the next day england italy at wembley both cup finals like god. What a weekend this was. I'm going to have serious post-tournament blues. I think stop sorry. Us in action like people have probably seen it by the time that this is aaron. Speaking of wit don't get bored. I can name the team if you'd like. Yeah i guess. We are within an hour of kickoff matt. Turner and gold sam vines walker zimmerman. Paul arriola josse artis miles robinson jackson. You'll jonathan lewis. Sebastian legit shack. More kellyn acosta. Where for out by deka A lot of players. We've kind of already seen quite a lot of what. Let's not question triple g until we obviously Haiti are dealing with them. Dealing with a lot so I'll be curious to wake up and see how this game. Because i have no idea where it watching the in terms. I don't have a specific preview of this game. That would be pointless because it's going to be played by the time you listen to this just for the tournament is a whole you know. Obviously there are guys that on. I'm curious about. We talked a little bit about that on the podcast where the squad was named but there there are potential world cup qualifying spots on the line. Here that guys can play their way into so like matt turner. Being goal is interesting to me. Now he's not gonna pass stephan or hor vat necessarily but he could work his way possibly being the third keeper and part of their their group moving forward. So i'll be curious about that. Also you know. I don't think bear halter knows what his eleven is yet in this tournament. So you know. i'm sure maybe you're i don't know if you're on twitter right now. If you're seeing a freak out over decay not being included. I would say pump the brakes. They're going to ease their way into this tournament here and as we get in. Hopefully that's out of the group stage. Hopefully try not to be arrogant. Jj that's one of my annual new year's resolutions when it comes to the us soccer but if they get out of the group stage on. i'm sure decay will play a role So we'll see. I will say this about the us. The last thing. i'll say on them like. I hope that this isn't a in terms of an american fan base. That is like rabid over this team. I don't. I personally am not viewing this as a title or bust tournament for them. I think mexico even on the heels of a a nil-nil draw. Start up the tournament against trinidad and tobago and with them even with losing chuck lozano to a bad head injury. That was that was not the. I feel terrible for him. I hope he's okay I still think. I look at that mexican team and i still think that is the clear team to beat in this tournament. They have many of their a-list guys. The us simply does not so. If you know boy. I sound like a loser mentality right now saying this but i'm just trying to like be a little bit grounded here in in realism like this. Us team is just not better than that mexican. So look look we can. We all have different conversation if the us go out prematurely facing mexico. I think that we should be able to handle other opposition but if this comes down to usa mexico situation whether it's the final sunny whatever That's.
