Two on Tri: Is Vela Coasting? Lozano to Man Utd?

"Yeah. The latest different of two on three podcast about here in Bristol, Connecticut and the coast to coast vision of Bill because looming over my shoulder gets his video is the one and only Hercules Gomez got a much better locale, Los Angeles, California has a treating you brother straight me are very well said I like my skyline a little bit better than your basement skyline. Thank you for the for the reminder, not only are we in Bristol. We're in a basement in Bristol. I just wanna make sure you know, we've you're not talked a little bit about doing this podcast more getting it more regularly. That's why we're back tonight. But you know, you have appeared at some point in your distinctive ESPN career on football begun there. And as you made the point on Twitter earlier today food boat become to the show has turned into the kademi for coaches in Mexico. So you're not gonna leave us for like the web lower logo. Swab job. Are you? Listen, I've had my fair share of come in those as they would say that pro-choice. And I'm I'm fine. Where I'm at today. I like what I do full begun this Lamar SIA of the Mexican coaching carousel and right now, I want no part of that. You're okay, don't worry. Of course, we're referencing are now former colleague demoss boy to give you an idea of one. We're taping. This thing it's it's the day that she has announced that sixty six year old believe Tomas boy will take over for what's left of the season. And try and get them back for games say what it is. It's a very short term agreement. We'll say it's it doesn't have a huge lifespan. It would seem. But, but that's the topic for another show. I do want to kind of mention that later in the show into how Jesus plays into both Mexican football. And specifically the Mexican national team. But I think that's a little further down a run down. I wanna start with something that is fresh for me this week just a couple of days ago. We had the big the big game in MLS L AFC versus United. If you follow our work at all, you probably NAMA denied fan of unlucky sub. Yeah. Yeah. Well, my sporting fandom choices haven't worked out really over the years. But again topic for another show so L AFC comes to town. It's the best of the best, right? Best to the east to the west and Garlos Vela for like the seventh week in a row is putting on a show that where it's very clear that he doesn't belong at this level almost and I don't say that to be disrespectful of. League soccer. It's really more to pay complement to this version of Ella. That we see that is not only brilliant hurt, but consistently brilliant now, which is something we haven't always seen in the past just confirmed for me are we in your opinion, seeing the best we've ever seen Abella, you think. No, no, absolutely. Not. Because at Velez best version. He was third best forward in league right behind John Ronaldo Messi, put Renaldo any. Anyway, you want number three. What's got Vela? There's a huge drop off from that moment to Major League Soccer and him being the best player and the first six weeks of major league soccer's new season. Let's not go that far. Now, he did have a great game. But Yes, Mr penalty he also player that for as much as he does. Well, he kind of goes in coast through games flow to pick and choose his went, and he's still very effective. And I'll give you a few Zambales Carlos Vela scored a goal and three assists versus Portland and. I called that game for the board of this. And I remember thinking after this game that was a poor performance from Carlos Vela that was sub par from God villa and he scored a goal and three assists. So he's kind of coasting through this league. At this moment. I don't think Elliot c or Carlos Vela are quite as good as we make him out to be at this moment. But Gatos Vela is no doubt playing at another level than everybody else in Major League Soccer. It's interesting because when we talk about players and who the best player in the national team pool is and who the best player is at the moment. I think for a lot of reasons is always been near the top of that whether it's perceived talent people will put in there. Whether it's the place that he's playing because he's either been at some important clubs or clubs and important leagues or linked with very important clubs be it from the beginning of his career with arsenal. Or just recently when he was linked to Barcelona. Yet for all that he's he's maybe never been the guy that you claim certainly is that player. And now if you wanna put him in that conversation, the thing that we used to always say like oh him going molest won't be a problem is now an argument against him. We're using it as an asterisk ERC to say, well what he's doing is great. But the level that he's doing at is is good enough. Yeah. And it's usually it's usually the people down south who follow league keys or follow the Mexican nationals evil use that Astra against godless Valence soccer for it. How are we being any different now down? Well, because because the interest was real because he was literally the next choice after principal attend from going and playing in Barcelona because we actually believe this. Now a few years back. Semi Giovinco had interest from Barcelona. And I think it was all here's it was all talk. It was just rumor mill stuff nobody really took it seriously. There was some serious talk going on here. We actually bought into Carlos Vela actually fitting that mold actually being bought us alone up player because of his relationship with LA league because of maybe his loan or a free transfer or whatever it may have been with Major League Soccer both teams making it was actually realistic. Now, it didn't happen didn't materialize prince boats instead, but I think that made us think well Carlos could still play Vela maybe shouldn't be here. So we had some fun on Twitter over the weekend. You know, my mom and dad went to the DC NADA game moms with her Mexican flag. Trying to Carlos Velez attention from the nosebleed seats. And and she we tweeted something and she kind of responded with her take which was the best player at the moment for Mexico, and you have used this before. But you've said Carlos Vela is the most talented player. Correct. There's a negative. I know, and I'm not going to give you that fallback this time right now, do you think Arnold's Velez the best playing Mexican player at the moment? No you disagree with my mom. I do I go. I'm sorry. I love you. And you know, it, but I have to disagree. The best player right now. Best Mexican player right now is that I will he menace. He's playing on another level in the EP L. You have two minutes because we put an Astro behind Shuki Lassana because he plays in the division because he he plays in a league that doesn't really defend Carlos Vela plays Major League Soccer. Maybe a league that's below his actual moment right now. But I will he meant his place in the Premier League. He plays in one of the most difficult leagues in the. The world and he's completely tearing it apart. Not just go scored. But the way he creates for other teammates his goals and assist what they produce in the amount of points. And where he plays. He plays her Wolverhampton. He's not playing it city. He's not playing it Spurs. He's not playing at United. These teams are going to have overwhelming offensive chances and create chance after chance and he's gonna take advantage of maybe one or two he's played at Wolverhampton. He's playing a level that I've never seen from him. Let me ask you this just to bring it back to kind of wrap up on that. I think you're totally right about human is. It's very difficult to make an argument against and we see him scoring at this point before it was maybe every couple weeks with an assist thrown in. Now, it seems to be every week and doing it in in big, but it's against to Chelsea United. All these big games. Yes. Big moments and not you know, he's he's been great. And so valuable to that team and that team is having such success. So that's a fair argument. But but for Vela, I wonder then. What's his importance? What's his weight moving forward in the national team picture because? If if we don't believe that he's really as good as what we're seeing on our televisions every week because there's that MLS asterisk attached to it. And then we also factor in that he wasn't called in for the last call ups, and whatever that may or may mean means I think it's different to different people and the final I think number here that's very important in his age in the end of two thousand and twenty two he's going to be thirty three and change. I think thirty three in like six months he's going to be almost thirty four years old. Do we think that any of this magic whether the MLS asterisk because they're not is going to be left for Carlos valid thirty four. And if we don't hurt is there a point to even calling him up anymore at all even for tournament Gold Cup where you think right now. Yes, he could help Mexico. Well, right now, you can help Mexico because he's still very talented player six months from now two years from now that may be a different story take it from somebody who played when he was thirty four years old, it gets much more difficult, and I was somebody who depended very much my physical. Attributes Gatos, Bella does not he's a very technical very cerebral player. He can still get away with a lot at this level. And maybe even AGA calf. But if you wanna go above and beyond and you wanna compete in. What is a World Cup or even Copa America Gatos that needs to be not only mentally good? He needs to be physically. Good and got it right now, he is both two years from now that could be a different story. I you you remember this famous picture going around rather around social media, and it's got it. And it's not, you know, here at LA live outside of a Starbucks and they're chatting it up. I have no doubt in my mind that conversation when something like this that. I will help you in the important games. Don't give me CONCACAF nations league. Don't give me these Maleta. Let me rest let me show if you really want me, I will be there. But if not they're plenty of other younger guys coming up through the ranks that you need to look at you think that was good enough for Totta is that why we didn't see him called in. I think it was good enough for I really do dot the may played his big big tough guy act. Like, he did what they got go. But I don't buy it one bit. We saw many times in Atlanta United Joseph Martinez, get subbed out and removed that just go right through Martino. Like, I've never seen a player with the coach and thought that would turn a blind eye that will give him the other cheek, and it would be business as usual. It's going to be the same thing here that they got the corona situation that saga had more to do with the federation and the Portuguese coach said he'll say sow than they got and dot the Martino very well. So this fantasy three then that I've been dreaming of over the. Couple of days of Vella on the right cutting in on his left and chew key on the left cutting in on his right? Feeding out Jimenez for seventy minutes with dawn at the end for twenty minutes. Do you don't think I'll ever see that? In a big game. I think you may see the big I'm more surprised that that's your three then, and you left Geico Linus out in your dream scenario. What's going on? He's he's in the middle. He's in the middle. Pulling the strings he's in the middle. But that's for a two on three podcast probably two or three years down the road. Let's keep it moving here. Because we don't have endless time the latest Julian Assange, rumors, Manchester United. I think we touched on that on the last podcast. But what I wanted to talk about here is we do here on the show. Yes. PFC which host in this week. We have this segment called extra time people send in their questions and somebody sent in. Do you think Jubilo sano can make it at Manchester United? So of course, I can't pine on this sacred panel. I have to ask the experts. And by experts. I'm mean, our good buddy her Craig Burley who is on the panel of me. And basically he said that Yuki wouldn't really help Manchester United that if they want to rebuild to the places that they wanna go. He's not the type of player that they should effectively for me. My translation on that is he's too small for what Manchester United needs at the moment. I'll ask you as I've kind of gone through Manchester United's roster, and I've taken a look really wear their strength fly. What they're Ostra might look like next year. We know all they're gonna so stars going to a stick around and be get a lot of money to make transfers and see the reports are he's going to clean house quite a bit. So do you think that Yuki Lozano would? And I'm going to put it just to you this way be a starter at Manchester United in that first eleven well, you made it easy for me a starter. I don't think so could he play on Manchester United. Yeah. I think you could find his way onto that team. And maybe find his way in some time. They play a lot of competitions a lot of Cup games different types of tournaments. So yeah, he could play. I don't think he'd be an out starter if you enter play Champions League important game a knockout round game that said Shuki Lozano is still a very good player. He had some difficulties going forward and head coach about maybe the tactical discipline that it takes to play not just tacking side of it. But what happens after you lose the ball? But you still a player that's going to go and get a very lucrative. Deal very lucrative move to a big team. I just don't know if it'll be that class eighteen we keep talking about doesn't need to be the class eighteen I wanted to be the class eighty miles that is the fan here. Like, he's if the jump is there. Let's make it like we always talk about getting more players Brown. Hot right now. Do it whether failed doesn't matter. He's question is Dortmund class a team. Yeah. I would put them there. Just just on the edge of it. But yes, I think you're right there on that cusp of AB. I think that's his level. I think that's where he can realistically go spur where he can realistically there. Would you put Spurs in that conversation? Here's here's the here's the issue in since he's a Mexican national team player. There's gonna come on command a high transfer fee because that's what they do. It comes with the North American market like Christian, pulisic and Spurs doesn't spend more than that. I don't think they spend more than forty million on any player in their transfer history recently. So. No, I don't see him. It's burs. He's gonna command. I think he's going to go for for more than forty million. Where do you thinking goes? You tell me where he's not gonna go. Tell me where he is going to go. I think he finds his way not bully. I know this is a club. That's flirted a few times with Mexican national team players. I most recently, but he had the one I guess you could say snag because but Yuka still owned a portion of his transfer fee. Well, this is another Pachuca player. So that relationship silicosis their I could see him and said eah. Interesting. I like that one listen. So here's I wanted to disagree with Craig Burley on the on my extra time segment her, but I didn't. And here's why you look at that Manchester United the players that he would be going up against right, Marcus Radford, sometimes plays wide for them. But I think it's a lot of people say he might move up take mkaku spot if he moves on surreally, the there's two kind of wide spots figured he'd have to beat out either Anthony Marschall or Jesse lingered. Good luck. And those. Hey, but but to make that jump that's the type of player you have to put your player. That's that's been absolutely fantastic. Under all gonna social is that the player that's grown immensely under him. And now, you're asking Shuki son divinity to beat him out and out outta medically. Be the man there that's very difficult because one has equity with that team. The other is coming in completely new completely. To a new situation without any backing of his own. Yeah. Just wonder man, I wonder if when he signed with Manchester United anybody thought that he would play and start and get minutes right away. I think it's very easy to think that these guys are not going to be able to make that. I know what you're saying. But they're different players. And she said he had one thing going for him. He scored goals. His first game was against the all stars scores. A goal the very next game that I see him it's community shield against Chelsea. I believe in. He scored that goal office space. All he kept doing what scoring goals, it's very different player. So it doesn't matter where you come from. If you're putting the ball in the back of net, you're gonna get minutes. All right fair enough. Let's move on from to keep to route Jimenez the last time we were together in Los Angeles. He had not yet officially signed with wolves. I think a day or two later. It was reported that he had he's got a permanent home. He's got homework. Loved. He clearly is very happy to be there. We seem score a goal in the FA Cup pullover. The leader mask with the wolves logos on at very cool moment, they then went on to blow the lead and crash out of the FA Cup. So so maybe a little bit of a sour note at the end of that just real quick, what did you think of of that deal becoming permanent? And is it the right move for human is given that he is very hot right now. And there may have been maybe some opportune. I don't know to go to a bigger club. But to go somewhere else in the summer. Well, first of all that wasn't in his hands wrote. He minutes didn't have decision whether Wolverhampton bought him or not or whether you go to a different club. I it was just smart business. We'll we're going to purchase that option and in from there if they sell them that's on them. But that's smart business. He six around has another six months. He's having right now. I don't think he lasted another transfer window. That's how good relative minutes has been in the Premier League. That said this is absolutely correct move for he menace he needs to establish himself. I in Europe. Let's remember Medica. He goes nothing happens there, then it goes to Benfica nothing happens there three years where he's lost like many other Mexican Ashley employers in Europe. He finally has the ability. He's taken advantage of that's what he needs to continue to build on in from there. A Wolverhampton keep up this pace because I believe they're seventh in the Premier League right now if they can keep this pace up for another year. She don't think you're gonna have bigger clubs around the world not gonna. Ms door. It's a very very good point. There is no better a showcase than being near as close as you can possibly be to the top six and the Premier League. And that's what seventh is that's where Wolverhampton find themselves in the table. All right. Real quick Gold Cup draw. But sh what everybody was waiting for Mexico gets Canada, Martinique and Kouba. What? Well, how are we supposed to analyze that? It's just the goal. Come just get worse. I don't know how to take this. You like Cal keeps throwing us, you know, matches that don't mean have, you know, swim or letters on of lettuce. Molest but their official. These are supposed to mean something this tournament isn't really starts until about after quarters, and I'm maybe semis for Mexico. Costa Rica for the US, it's that bad when you look at the group stages. I don't think anybody can touch Mexico in the group phase right now, it's about managing players managing moments, and maybe sent in a few messages if you don't want to be part of this program moving forward. Maybe you started limiting limiting somebody's players when it really matters in Gold Cup is one of those moments. They'll open on June fifteenth in Los Angeles the Rose Bowl against Cuba. Then it's onto Denver and Canada on the nineteenth of June. They'll finish the group phase on the twenty third of June in Charlotte against Martinique. That's a lot of travel. They go from LA Denver, and then across the country to Charlotte, of course in Denver. They'll play at altitude the Matt of Cuba's like one seventy four in the rankings. Martinique can't even play in a fief at tournament. And Canada hasn't really been good since the eighties beyond that beyond that I wanted. I wanted to be before the actual tournament June fifth. They're gonna play Venezuelan Atlanta. The ninth Ecuadoran Dallas an after the tournaments in September because of the contract with some they have to have a they have to have a friendly game there or two and not Tober. They've got the nation's leak and so the as well in November two games over two games November. You talk about this schedule going forward. This is white dot com out of denote needs to have a deep pool. This is why Deano has to all of a sudden key players like an extra like Gatos Vela in mind. Even if they won't come you talk about the games leading into this tournament. I mean, just very curious as to what those national teams, obviously, they'll be building up for their respective tournaments as well. So that might be in some ways better tests than anything the Gold Cup really can offer her. And I think that's the only real discussion that there is to be had to had to be had about gold. Up is not any of these matchups. It's the fact that this tournament is useless really to a team like Mexico, and it's sporting wise. It's a fraud. I mean every year it set up so that Mexican the United States can only meet in the final we already know where MEC whatever happens to Mexico, even their lose, whatever unless they get eliminated. We know where they're they're all of their knockout round games are going to be because the people running this tournament need to know ahead of time where Mexico is going to play. I mean, that's that's not real sporting tournament. What what is the point from a sporting standpoint for Mexico to be involved in something like this yet? You're absolutely right from sporting standpoint, it's very little because this actually doesn't mean anything you can win the Gold Cup. You're not going to go off and play considerations club. You know, the US already has a ticket that have ticket actually means for them and what they can get them. I don't know because if they win it again, nothing happens if Mexico wins it again, they may do it is. Comcast playoff just have winter on its deathbed anyway. Yeah. Exactly. And this Trinite is strange because of first time in his existence. You're gonna have Costa Rica with two home games, they're gonna have Jamaica with a home game. So who picks what team gets a home game? Who picks? You know, why they get a home game? How do you determine that? I it seems to me that the only determination and this is money. Yeah. And I think it's also worth noting. I said the Gold Cup draw as our former colleague geared is being Doug McIntyre, porn out on Twitter. It's not actually draw Concha cap. Just picks the groups so look I mean, there's a lot. There's a constant debate around Mexican soccer should should Mexico. Be further linked with gone all whether that means go Medica some people don't want to take it as far as qualifying. Maybe when we get to a forty eighteen World Cup. There is some type of combination. But. When you talk about Mexico making the next steps taking the next jumps these games that you talk about even outside of Gold Cup. All these games that they're going to have to play to fulfill their contracts don't seem like they're going to be the type of games that really make Mexico better. Do they not at all not when you look at this group as playing against who has got Cuba cannon Martinique doesn't seem like stiff competition, it seems more like a victory tour in the United States where they can make money. It is if nothing else the lucrative business this Mexican national team hurt. Yes. It is. That's one way to sum it up. I like to their real quick because we did mention it at the top of the show Tomas boy is now in charge of Jesus. That is not the only reason, but it is the latest symptom of the deep deep crisis that is while this is the crown jewel of Mexican soccer. The all Mexican team the team that in some ways represents Mexican football in its purest form, some might say, and it's a disaster. The question that's relevant to this show is a what does that say about Mexican football? If anything and B what does that mean to the Mexican national team if anything, well, why are they disaster? I think one of the most evident things is there poorly run that also happens in Mexican football with the federation. It's poorly run another thing is they only play with Mexican players. Now, the rest of the league has an unlimited amount of players that are foreign that they can sign but he'd have nine on the game day roster. Well, they don't do that because of their policies. It's only Mexican Mexico Mexican-born naturally just Mexican players that hurts them that hurts. Their ability to develop the Mexican player. So I'd seem like Santos Teague as the rest of the rest of the other seven teams don't develop Mexican players at the same rate as as well that should make Jesus stronger in theory, except they try to purchase their talents. They don't develop it anymore. What out is no longer there? He's at the Luca that great. I would say developmental academy that he was bringing up the ranks. No longer exists beyond was probably gonna last players him in Google Doris at Amata to come out of there. There are no longer developing players for Chiba, which means they're no longer developing players for the national team now in Mexico. If you wanna be good player, and you wanna get up you have to leave you have to go somewhere else. Whether that's your kademi team to a different team, or that means completely leave Mexico like Donya what you're saying you saying you actually did. So this actually ties into the Mexican national team all this going on with Cheever's. All these complexities. All these fiascos that are happening. This happens Mexican soccer, and it affects the me the Mexican national team. I get the point that you make. And I can agree with you when you say Cheever poorly run. But I think also we have to point out that cheetah's is much more frugally run today than it was maybe five six years ago. Yeah. Cheetahs has spent much didn't play for Alan believe. Oh, that's what I'm saying. How much they pay on Saturday. Sorry. Sorry. Sorry hurt. That Arab us is over. They're not spending that anymore. Right. So a year ago now not when they believe. Oh, no, no. No, no. But I'm saying it was a year ago when they were still bringing these players in. I mean, if you think about it the last ten years, and I'll give you some names really quickly. Okay. You have outdo the needs. We're talking about the, you know, this isn't a hand this is a handful of year savvy a handful years, how can they go that broke that quickly if that's your theory? Do you know what the transmit, you know, what they charge in the United States for for having their games shown in certain television networks, it's one of the most lucrative businesses in all of saga all of soccer soccer. I don't buy that. They don't have. Money. They're poorly run. They choose not to spend money when they don't wanna spend it. But when they want to spend it they've got no problem. There was a time hurt when cheetahs had some of the best Mexican players in the pool right now. Jeeves does not have the best. That's that's a different argument. The wait absolute, wait, wait. My point is the crisis that Jesus is achievable crisis. It's a crisis. That is use as born a poor leadership. I don't necessarily believe that that reflects as much as people might say it does on the national team. Specifically, the national team pool is full of good players. Can I gain example, players just don't play for us anymore? That's your out. All right. Right. Example that poor leadership that trickles down to the national team Matias Alameda. He's a very good coach, right, sir. You would've loved this with Mexico with the Mexican national team. Yeah. Why didn't you go federation Jesus? Okay. There you go, right? Okay, fine. That's fair the cheetah's disaster. But I don't think I don't think we can say I would also point out this in the air from between twenty eleven and the current update. Right. So when it was ten eight ten ten foreign players was the max that you could have on your roster and a lot of teams literally the only player you would see would be the goal. You wouldn't even get a Mexican field player on some teams, right? In that era Jesus being exclusively Mexican mattered more. I think now we're seeing really just in the last two seasons. More and more Mexican players. Finding opportunities in the league at more and more clubs, and I would even go as far as the say, and this is because really withstood zero so it had nowhere to go. But up in the more attacking an important positions on the field. Yeah. I think I wouldn't say more important because if I'm a head coach I don't want a under twenty player who's getting his first minutes at the back. I'd probably want him somewhere attacking where if he lost the ball. He wouldn't really cause me that much trouble or my team that much trouble. I think that's the reason you see these players coming up through those type of positions not necessarily because they're earning or because they're developing at a higher rate in those positions. Okay. Fair enough. I mean, I think we see some you're right. We see a lot of like South American centrebacks. But you know. Yeah. Maybe maybe there are some more positions. But certainly I think that the the era of the only Mexican players you would find having success. What Jesus is is a bit overstated and over now. All right. We got to wrap it up with this pod. 'cause we got knocked out a few more things out of your busy man out there in LA her real quick. You got anything you wanna plug? I know our guys is a thing. You're always working on right? Yes, sir. Monday through Friday, eleven PM Pacific time. It's about one AM east. Coast catches on the board at this. All right. That's Hercules Gomez.

I'm just saying the month the month starts in through November seventh now close November tenth your jam ex my ex girlfriend's birthday of what I've been trying to forget that on that note comment Decision Decision Day presented by at and T. The final week of the regular season on Sunday all twelve matches like I said at four PM Eastern. It's going to be hard to watch them all extremely difficult you can watch one in its entirety on ESPN. That is the Portland Timbers hosting the San Jose earthquakes. One of the big decisions is whether either of those teams will get into the playoffs that seems likely that one will will both we shall see the eleven other broadcasts you can watch on ESPN plus or wherever it is regionally for you as well they also have ESPN plus a Mos most decision day presented by at and T. whip around show and I believe that is Adrian Healey Brian Dunne set and Maria Merino Valley you you can watch that one. They'll jump year round. They'll talk about all the games go to ever exciting. Also you ever pre-game show matchdays central three to four PM Eastern. Mos Channels Dot dot com the APP Youtube Twitter facebook myself Kaelin Charlie Davies mattdoyle and Jimmy Conrad here in the studio. Everybody everywhere else right. We're going to be Dave Atlanta New England bobby where You Philadelphia. NYC Susannah Dallas Kansas City and we have someone in literally every single market so oh matched a central three to four PM Eastern is the pre game show presented by a t and t we got the postgame show at six thirty PM Eastern and oh by the way in the pre game. It's the draft of drafts the expansion expansion priority draft between Nashville Se Inter Miami cf they're going to figure out who gets priority and the expansion lane for this. I don't get to flip the coin. I had to do it like guns under bill. Yes it was when Atlanta and Minnesota were coming flip the coin and it was one of the most stressful experience one though my one of to one that shows how important it is this guy's Zana. Oh whoa whoa no accusations Europeans. Don't say don't say the word I will flip who agent he's been talking about by seeing them. In doubting them stales widely coined the prediction was just like the wallpaper on top of the rot her share behind the three things are going for basically. It's the expansion draft. I picked the super draft I pick and the allocation order number one spot their spot in the allocation order umbrella roussin. Atlanta traded the top spot in the expansion draft for a draft pick that turned into Julian wrestle and in the Super Dry you unique wrestlemainia and Super Grand Avenue done Lodhi Minnesota by the way the second pick was miles Robinson so it's not that big a deal. If you don't win the coin flip you just get the second pick so still pretty good that Abbott on lady will be an all star or plan a higher level in another league and his career feels like that one slipping superhighway right now also outy bracket challenge is open so go get that in some sweet prizes. You'd have twenty twenty season ticket package. Maybe five hundred bucks store. You're Audi. VIP driving package so we will do more of that on the show once the field is set. Let's get to it the decision number one of five on Decision Day presented by. At not who gets in from the West we know in the East New England sealed that SPA but in the West there are two spots to go San Jose Portland. FC Dallas and Colorado are battling for it. We've talked about this over and over and over and over and over in the last month because the likes of San Jose Portland in Dallas have just like ran through a field of banana peels and just bash. They're are facing the ground over and over and over and they're qualify for the playoffs. It's been not so great. I will give you the last five games for each of these teams. For Portland. No wins the two losses three draws for San Jose literally nothing but losses five straight losses for Dallas they started with the win and then they lost they draw twice and then they lost again in Colorado though have five wins in their last six games and here's what it would take for the wii talking about Colorado Andrew. Out of you know guess what they're not Dave. That's a win against Elliott TSE and Dallas lose and San Jose Luis the Portland boom the rapper and we get more Tim Howard his career is not over and we get the third best team for the last twenty two games in major league soccer the only two teams with better records early on forty five points at NYC AFC on forty three points. It's a Colorado rapids twelve wins in that time and forty points and boy had they not lost in Toronto in that wild game. This might be a different conversation now even if Dallas and San Jose Boat Lose. Let's say San Jose tie against Portland then Colorado has to win by three or more goals against l. EMC which is on the Road L. AFC won the shield maybe nothing to play for Dallas meanwhile if they win against boarding KC there in Portland if they win or tiger and San Jose there in San Jose if they win against Portland there in those are the simple scenarios soccer dot com for the rest of it. FIVETHIRTYEIGHT says less than one percent chance for the rapids to make the playoffs so you're saying there's a chance How's this going to go down bobby. How might this go down. How might suspensions influence all this because I see Bryant Fernandez out for Portland. I see Tommy Thompson out for San Jose. I I see Roger in Italy a out for Kansas City okay so let's start at the top. Let's start with Portland hosts in San Jose the game that has on ESPN. You would think that the timbers at home when the timbers timbers are at home. They are the favourite right. I agree with that logic except that I have watched these teams play over the last two months and even though the earthquakes have lost eight of their last ten games games. They have still been a very good team. They have been a better team than the Portland Timbers so I will take the San Jose earthquakes to go into Portland and get a win. I'm not going to PARENTI PARENTI it right but off their form and the way they've been playing. The quakes have been the better team. Can I ask you how this plays out because Portland God knows how they will approach this thing without Brian Fernandez without results at home with the haven't gotten frankly for a while now better part of two months and then San Jose seem kinda tired but you figure they'll stick with their their material made his team. It's man. What does this game look like on? The field is it just cages. Both teams just like no stomachs roiling. We can't make a mistake or is it. Just helter skelter shelter will the senator quakes are one of the top three. I don't know where exactly they are possession teams. They have the most possession per game in the league. I don't expect that to change. I would expect the earthquakes to go oh to Providence Park and dominate the ball and dominate the game. If you're the timbers that's a good thing. That's what the timbers want. We learned this year. We learned last year. This is not a team that wants the ball. They made it to. MLS Cup up playing the way that they can they will be able to ensure play in that last game with the other team having the ball. They sit midfield. They catch them on the counter so there's definitely a way hey for them to win this game but I would still take the quake's it'd be fascinated and I don't think it's going to happen to see though no Fernandez. What do you do at that center forward position to put Valerian as a false night because one of the things with playing a bogus he was he helped set up Fernandez but Fernandez is not available for this game. Valeri hasn't been starting but we've seen gene SAN JOSE when they play against the false nine and someone vacates that center forward position they follow them and that's where you create space and create opening so that would be interesting for me if Jio Salvadore say went with something bold because he's been the entire time and you mentioned the results the entire time has been. We're a tweak here their way where just a little quicker occur and are passing patterns a little quicker off our first touch away which has not been true or it's been true for the entire season. They just can't get over it. It's one of the two Valeri maybe final game Susanna in Portland. Wow very very likely his final game. He's been going around to the couple of Stan saying goodbye. He's been tweeting out and look how told and corrected by someone in my DM's that picture we were talking about where I was like yeah. He's playing the piano. He wasn't playing the piano that was him after after his first ever goal in Portland acting like he was sending an email back to his family in Argentina so this man is he's interwoven with the culture of the club with the culture of the city frankly the culture of two clubs with Connie and the thorns and the way that that family supported them. He may not be back. He may not be back back. I mean you're sending me into a dark dark place Andrew this. How it's Oh say it ain't so say it ain't so I I have adored watching Diego Valeri play and I. I believe that Portland are going to win this game. I do and I just because because this could be. This could be the swansong for him. I want them to do it for him. I just want to see more of him. I WANNA I wanNA savor these last few few moments silence of Diego Valeri because we've been very lucky to to get to watch him in major league soccer and so for that reason alone. I'm saying that Portland are going to win. They're going to be in the postseason season and we're GONNA get. We're going to send him off. In the right the right fashion all they need is a draw draw even if they do make the postseason. It's still might be dig galleries final game in the row city. We will see how they remember him if they have a T. fo- for an emotional as that was the entirety of the ninety minute. Can we add some flavor into that conversation by the way that we have to talk about. It was reported. I think by Jamie Goldberg that Sebastian Blanco got an extension on his contract multi-year somewhere around the one one point three million look like she said eight hundred thousand shy of two million I believe was her report. I mean that's money that could have gone exactly to Diego. Valeri deal could go to da of layer because that is tam money under the current rules of the CBS or sure but they go very larry by all accounts is an incredible human being. I don't know what human being could to be in the middle. All the contract dispute see somebody else get money that could have been allocated to them and not have that he had had that hit them a little bit. I loved you as much as you do not as much as Portland Timbers fans do my dad loves him. I think the world of him. I hope that they find this solution. I also wonder why it was the Portland did not publicize that extension was bashing Russian block. Oh you know those who are going to talk to each other on. It's not like it's going to be sure but also if you're an adult and you're Diego Valeri. You're thirty three years old Blanco's thirty one. He's got a two year extension and then you're gonNA the and boy. He's not getting paid big time at the end of that one is you're not getting a big time speaking logically as a human being getting your own money to feed your own family is not a logical act but latrell sprewell relaxed for a second like he has enough for rent this month. It's the next contract contract. I understand. You're an athlete. You have a certain amount of time but we're talking about differences between five hundred thousand and one point two million. We're not talking to the difference between two thousand and three thousand Jonathan never been called the few. It'd be so lucky start. Ashok you know what's going on. We'll see what happens with the timbers and is that you can watch that one. ESPN Dallas are trying to get this thing done to and they're fortunate because they're really good at home and Roger. How ill is out for Sporting Kansas City in Kansas City. Don't have anything to play for other than Peoria. Me's not pushing them out the door if they don't try can ruin. It feels like it would be nice. It'd be nice anything from that game. That catches your fancy. Dallas just got to win. They can also draw San Jose loser tie they would be in or if San Jose lose and Colorado Ratu loser tre or or draw then there they get technically lose this game and still get the only thing we should point out. Is it s Casey is not an easy game. Even though they have not won in over a month they gave Portland all they could handle handle. They gave Minnesota all they could handle. They probably could have should have one vote both of those games so this is not an easy game for FC Dallas at home. It'll be interesting because dowels a lot better at home because they play higher up the field. When they play at home they get more possession and when they lose that possession they press a little bit quicker a little bit higher and we know Casey will try and play through that so I think for Dallas. This is the best case scenario because it gives them an opportunity to create chances off the press. You know cobras going to start and I don't think he starts on the road as much because he doesn't do a whole lot of work defensively so I think set up for Dallas. This is all you could ask for and let's have this conversation now real quick before it ends if they lose this game. It was a good season for them. They were not supposed to be a postseason and team Lucia Gonzalez his first year there resetting the roster from what it was under pray. Ha they've brought a lot of young players who have shown they complain. MLS They still have pieces they need to add veteran wise or change the ones maybe that they have in some spots you think of the wingers and maybe senator forward but for what twenty nine twenty nine thousand we're supposed to be when Luci Gonzales Scott presented and we spoke here on this show. I think this is alive the last day of the week hosting team to win and go into the postseason. That's as good as you could. Ask for Cobra Cobra. I know the goals have come lately but that has been a miss. Here's a check Republican national. I know he got called in Edwin gun international and he hasn't even died in the eighteen for like a month and a half. That was the big signing in the summer so there are some question marks for them. How about this just for entertainment value six and seven see the only way Colorado can get in and give us that entertainment is if Portland gets in the only way. What is the best entertainment sixth and seventh seed? Who Do you want to see in the playoffs against either Minnesota Seattle the Galaxy Galaxy Oursel- in that first round. What do you want to see because if you say San Jose Bobby then you know seeing the rapids and the rapids as I said yes I can you the rapids can win now. I don't know saying get in with the rapids. It's Portland is the only way that's the only way Portland could draw. San Jose would get knocked out you know you. I didn't ask what I think will happen. You ask for what would be the most fun correct because come on predicting major league soccer. We're not idiots who in the rapids going to L. AFC and winning would be incredible but they don't have to do that. The rapid half to win at the end of the regular really season right now. I thought you meant in the postseason no right now but that earthquakes timbers game as a whole will be bonkers because I don't really care that much much. They won't be scrambling that much to get the result back if the leading Portland at the end of round. Have you met Bob Bradley. Have you talked to him. You're right they'll be but it won't be as crazy. CRAZIEST Portland Portland San Jose earthquakes are winning with ten minutes left will be incredible there say what was the three three game when San Jose one hundred Chris Leach too big it was Minnesota Yeah and they scored like to and when Danger Hurts Brooklyn an Oscar Operate Ha was interviewed afterwards and it looked like he was very close to tears understandably so so I'm GonNa go. I'M GONNA say it's Portland Colorado because I want to see the rapids. They're the best team of these four in the last twenty two games James. I want to see them. In the playoffs. Portland has not earned it based on their home form just straight up. Can I ask a bobby warshaw question stupid or not. I'll go hall. Do you think Robin Fraser would be happy if they made the postseason. My wording of that means doesn't make his job harder because next year the expectations from a team he didn't have time. I'm to build and put together as well. You're postseason team isn't that shouldn't that be the expectation for them. I don't know how we're going to this in the mailbox so we can. We can reexamine this choir sal so non-playoff the rapids do L. AFC. Now because that's another decision that's going to happen on decision. Day presented by at and T. Can they break the all time points record there on sixty nine points which is very nice but it's not the best ever you know that is seventy one point by Cameron. I I know I know he makes things difficult and never know what he's dealing back their land united had seventy points last year which was also a record but not the ultimate record because the Red Bulls got that they got the ultimate prize which was MLS Cup so maybe this doesn't matter but probably does because it's Bob Bradley and he set out to prove something with L. AFC prove something this year does Bob Bradley care about this record Susannah. Should he care about it yeah. Of course he does it. You said it it's Bob Bradley. He wants to win every game. I mean this is not a guy. That's GONNA approach game like we can kind of sit back and that's not that is not how that man is is wired so they want. They want this record. I fully expect them to go out there and get it done and that would mean that might rapids dreams would die and I'm just sitting here. Internally I would love Colorado would be fun and his heck to see in the place but I just I don't sides or not with one point one percent. I wish you had a Bob Bradley impression. I'm just GONNA sit up. What trophy do you guys care about about. The most as individuals is it. The Golden Boot is at the all-time goals record. Is it so outside of in-laws matter the most I can acknowledge that supporter's shield is is the record I care about the most I think that would be the coolest one to have as a professional and that's what I care about most watching yet. MLS Cup might still be the more important trophy. Do you know what I'm asking you to answer. Supporter Shield is my favourite to have that record for most points in a single season is my favorite record. I think if you're on the team and of course I can't speak to this but I think on the team that won would maybe be the most like internally rewarding from the sense of from preseason until this moment we put together ten incredible months and you have all these great moments along the way whether it's all the pictures you see in Rhode Locker rooms because he got to win games the do it or whatever else but personally. Emily Cup is the number one for Massa which record I care the most single season points versus goals. Is it points. It's got to be cared about that more than goals goals guys I want all the glory can meet the goals the goals I want my name is it trove prolong after L. AFC's been forgotten. It'd be strutting around like I'm Susanna Collins Yeah L. King Roy Lassiter Hellene years outside. What what what would you want. I don't even understand the purpose of the questions okay. How about this. How this break affect this. I I have something. That's how might this break because look no matter what Bob Bradley does if he goes forward and Carlos Vela play and we'll get to the goals in a second how much that matters for colors fella no matter what Elliot GonNa sit around from October sixth to either October twenty three to twenty four thirty and sit around for two and a half weeks. They're gonNA whole international break go by. They're going to have people we've international break. Those players are going to come back. Those players are going to have a full week to train again with L. AFC and then they're going to play a game you would think and maybe this is just uh of the layman in me that might throw off a teams rhythm and remember Bob. Bradley did say that it threw off his midfield rhythm at one point this season. How how much does this matter does this. Is this a blow to their their advantage now in finishing I know I don't think so. I think that if there was one coach major the league soccer that you were to say you get two and a half weeks to keep your guys motivated to be locked in and to make them better. It's Bob Bradley Won. It actually lets him reset in a little way and get back to what made them good. They came out of the season both last year and this year flying so you know that this team is going to be motivated. I think he's creative enough and intelligent enough as it's a coach to challenge them throughout training and make them do different things to fight against each other to work hard to still have that intensity level but he's the best coach in the League for reason season. He's got these guys locked in. They believe in everything he says because he believes in them and every time they do what he says they perform better and they get more awards. They get all stars they get goals goals records and so I think right now maybe next year is different in two years different right now. This team is on everything Bob Bradley doing and he's the smart smartest coach in the League both in training and the way he likes to plan for Games that this team won't be affected by Atlanta United last year. They wanted to get to the Games. They were good enough. They knew they should win. They just wanted to get to the Games. They didn't WanNa get to training. I think this L. AFC group is completely different and that's why they're perfectly geared for. The weight. Setup doesn't matter bobby that they won't have games together though and also can we just say that he John Torrington and everybody involved in that club. WE'RE GONNA be watching the international break. Just just praying just hope that there is not an injury anoc nothing nothing to any of these players sure. I never felt like the lack of a game matter because you still play eleven eleven in training. Maybe against your cell may begin so local club may begin to your academy team. You get that experience appearance. The weird part is having more energy because you will get two or three days off. You won't have the ninety minutes of a full. MLS game should go into a any match as a professional professional feeling fully energize a really really weird experience most of those thirty four. You're knocked up. You're tired in some way so go and fully ready to go and excited energize. That's that's what throws off your rhythm a little bit. It's not the fact that you're lacking reps. It's just the fact that you're more excited to be there and more energized to be there in car. I had a conversation with him about this and he set he said exactly. Basically what bobby was saying that like note like the you you want. You need that rest like you need. That motivation is going to be there. You're going to be sitting there watching games. You'RE GONNA WANNA be out there but just the the opportunity to have more energy to come out when you actually do play. He said players would take that anytime all day interesting Jordan Harvey he said after the with the Supporters Shield that they know they have to win them last couple. We've talked about that a lot on this show well. They'll have the opportunity they gotta win. Three Games Conference Semis Conference finals is an endless card because they have that by and they would have home field advantage throughout so it'd. Be Bank of California stadium start to finish Carlos. Vela has thirty one goals if we think that Bob Bradley is going to go for it logically. I would say we think the Carlos Vela is going to play a big role in this game. I did some math here because a bunch of people were up in the mentions of extra through time and my own talking about PK's and how that may be cheapens a little bit Carlos villas accomplishment and I went in and kind of broke it down so first of all nothing can cheapen forty six combined goals and assists in one year the only other player that's even within. I think within ten is Sebastian Giovinco Lingo twenty two and sixteen in two thousand fifteen. He was the previous record holder combined goals and assists Justin Martinez of course had thirty one goals last year. If you look at the six assists so he was close close he had thirty seven if you look at peak as Carlos Velez's thirty one goals nine. PK's he's missed two PK so he could have already set this record. Josefa thirty one goes he had eight PK's so Joseph had twenty three non PK goals. Villa currently has twenty two Roy Lassiter. Bring that name back baby had twenty four non PK AK goals that I believe is the record for non PK goals 'cause wanderer had twenty two in his record breaking year and Bwi had twenty one. Does it matter to anyone at this table. The car was has nine PK goals this year. Does it cheap an anyway his accomplishment no. He's raising in his hand if you if you were to tell me Joseph had zero then yes the differences one so no but there are golden boot races in the world where one employer doesn't take penalties for his team for whatever reason and another one does that change is it probably. Would you like to speak on this matter. You raise your hand no for sure. I feel that PK's matter when you talk about the Golden boot PK's are not the same as scoring other goals you mentioned who did who took the peak as for the galaxy those couple years Robbie Kenner Landon Donovan either. One of them didn't having the ability to take. PK's is a cheat code and winning the Golden Boot race. You probably for that era probably can't when the article I understand. Why is everyone who has won? It did take them would that be. Would that be true if we did not count. PK's in the Golden boot race. Do you have to take it. If you're a striker team. Give it to you maybe but the point is if everyone's on an equal plane it doesn't matter undervalues the a PK. It's not like that's like an easy straightforward thing to do. People are good at taking penalty kicks like there. I just look at like milner on Liverpool like you. You know right that's right but like that's a skill that he has so why. Why are we don't undermine? I'll give another golden boot for the most. PK's onto that he lets his hand out multiple golden actually like this from Susanna because the perspective is is kind of bringing another level which is on an incredible team that is l. AFC Carlos Vela is is by far and away the best PK ticker Joseph Martinez was by far and away the best PK take. It's not always shouldn't Al Morongo. It's not always true. Sometimes they just demand to take them sometime Joseph. There's Alfie with eight for nine last year. Yeah you can don't tell me he's not a good but that doesn't mean he's better at it than only Ron L. Mirani could've gone nine for you. Know what I'm saying. It's not necessarily before then exactly. It's not necessarily a given that the person who is the top goalscorer or the one who takes the penalties is the best penalty kick taker a lot of times. You know I'm feeling like if Bobby tries to wait in here and take the host Mike. I'm not going to let them that's the way it doesn't mean. You're better host. That just means Dang. I just I didn't say you worry. I'm just saying it's out there. Just weren't I understand. I understand why we don't split them for conversation. Sake in sports. It'd be too too messy for conversation but you can't tell me that a PK goal takes the same skill and expertise as a regular goal and if the if the Golden boot nobody's van it takes up but it's not the same if we're going to get the golden boot. WE'LL START AUSTAR goals goals golden boots. I would do that so you would take. The Guy who has backpost tap ins he would get less goals than a guy who has scored tougher goals. I would not weird you can't tell me I don't don't do this thing. Don't do this false equivocation thing that is not the same way I looked it up. Carlos Vela has won for peak as as you're always lifetime as one more than that with five Carlos Vela earned four of the eleven. You would think that he took this year so that has to count for something as well because that's difficult. That's a skill to earn. PK's do you want him to break the record or do you want him to end on thirty one with Joseph. I want him to break it. I do mostly because I I think I love him him as a as a player at I think there's this like this like weird part of me that like Joseph wants to keep that record so badly and not that I have a vendetta against Joseph Martinez but Carlos Fella is such an unselfish player like look at the amount of sissies had all season for a guy like that to also hold the record. I think is just a testament to his. All around over overall quality beauty is if he does get thirty two Joseph Martinez next year is going to be a marauding atom and here is going to just destroy destroy people. He'll have thirty seven. You are going to title the show. Suzanne Collins beef with Joseph. That's the thing you're GONNA do look. If I gotta do what I gotTa do right. Sometimes Click Bait is what works right and says you have to go west coast for the playoffs because right now Chicago Atlanta don't Chicago Doug that that whole themselves maybe or maybe you came out against Alexander Kutai three. You're out of her when he was still in. I have raised could tie bangers for for to season by the way I think Qatar is going to be on our all chaos team so they'll be more Kentucky Cobb coming decision number four on decision day presented by a t and t who gets the West Home Game Aka who needs it more galaxy oursel- Minnesota Seattle or trying to fight for this one seattle host the loons suspended for this one. Two yellow cards equals a red. He's out. Houston is hosting the Galaxy. This is demarcus Beazley's final game. We think we hope it is not with we. That's what he says but he's still pulling pranks exit training like two days before his final game so you think visa's. GonNa play for the US indoor national team with Landon Donovan Germain Jones. I think your main is in Germania Japan right now planned for that team. I don't know something crazy. That's where I got it from. Vancouver is hosting our cells so who needs it most in how is it anybody other than real L. Salt Lake at least in the first relic needs it most because their home record is way better than their road record as far as long term. I think Minnesota I needed the most. IF THEY WANNA make a run I would agree with that. Minnesota only lost once at home yeah they've been better on the road this year yeah a boo plaza them. They still there. I go round in the playoffs. It would be much better for them if they could play the first round game and they would hope the second round game in the conference semi and maybe even the conference finals if somehow someway. LLC gets knocked off and August yeah but through the roads so they gotta win. The road to get that we we just ask the question and answered it right away. I don't know what else I would just say. Yes sorry I don't really have anything. Super Intelligent all need it. They all don't the one would be for the galaxy you at least don't WanNa drop below five if this makes sense because then you play away first round but you have to come back to La to play L. AFC because if they end up in the six doubts you don't care don't care about anything they don't want. It doesn't matter they could get seventh and they wouldn't be fussed. We don't think they care about they. Just lost the Vancouver whitecaps at home. These dudes do not care about anything and they are fine with it nor should they care because homer way against against anybody in the league. They have an equal chance of winning that game because that's the. La Galaxy are just want them to be in fourth or fifth so they can play L. AFC in the conference somebody here from West per dine the congestion the West. We talked about a two through eight. Are All of these okay to good teams. Are All them good very good teams or all of them mediocre broker. I had my thing that I was going to go on this but basically if you look at it all these teams are on fifty three points right now in Minnesota in Seattle Aleksey on fifty one. Let's say none of them. Pick up points this weekend or they draw that would put them at sixth in two thousand eighteen in the western conference. That's where they would be in the standings so when you look at the teams this cheer compared to last year. I think you have more teams in the middle but you don't have as much quality in the top. Half of the Western Conference so to answer West is question well. How did he wear to these teams more okay to good good to very good or basically mediocre. They're good. They're just got good has to spectrums air. ooh good very good okay so take last year and you look at. Seattle second in the West at the time L. AFC third in the West at the end of the year. Those teams were better than the top then. Seattle has been this year because it had Chad Marshall and better l. AFC third was better than whatever Minnesota's been this year and whatever they like galaxy have been this year. I don't think it's a fair tick. Is that the top L. AFC is so good that the points got sucked up there and in the middle is just kind of like the pre good not mediocre ochre bad. They're not really good. We'll see what that means in the playoffs. How about this bobby this easier for you who needs a home game in the Eastern conference. That's decision number or five one of DC rebels Toronto. We'll get it. Rooney's suspended for DC Home Against Cincinnati better win that one might be Nacho Piazza's last game Montreal host the Red Bulls and Toronto host Columbus Right now on forty nine there in pole position the odd say that they will get a home game that four spot Red Bulls forty eight Toronto forty-seven DC win against Cincinnati home. They will get it see what think they'll probably get it but they don't have Rooney. I been born. I do not think that any of those teams teams need a home game like an Ara seller Minnesota Okay but let me ask you this question. Do any of those teams need to avoid phillies Atlanta and the first one more. That's how I would look at who wants to be sixth. The league I mean going to the Benz is not fun. Is there any part of this Atlanta team that you know of you want to avoid right now. Joseph Joseph Martinez this is for you. He's reportedly running and in Training Doug Roberson of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that along with Sleepiq Cardenas and so many others that route that training Michael Parker's went on the podcast is a great episode. That's a great podcast said he thought that Joseph could be available on decision. Day presented by at and T. They they might rest him but he said my mind was blown. I can't believe this guy's back already. I thought he was done so it seems like October nineteenth because that's when they would play or the twentieth or the twentieth he'd probably be good. Yeah you probably be back. You'd have the wind behind his back in the spring and his leg. I would just say yeah personally. I think for a D. C. They need to get fourth because I don't think they can go on the road a six and win and I don't think I don't think they WANNA go back to red bull arena and have that one swapped they a have played better over the last three. Oh in one over the last four but they still worry me the most on both sides of the ball of all three of these teams so oh that would be the one that I think if you Cincinnati to close the year out and you gotta go to Red Bull Arena or go to Philly or go to Atlanta. I think you're in trouble trouble but they can ugly it up better than the other teams. Maybe descend yeah. They're pretty good being ugly. They can go on the road and just like just just try to punch you. That's right Chris Armas they. He's like they brought energy to wasting time. Arab countries like it was impressive. It's how they chose to go about the game but they were good at what they chose to their energy wasting time. That's a good tagline for extra time Atlanta. New England is another game on Decision Day precipitating probably know Joseph Martinez. We'll see see what Atlanta do their fighting with Philly to try to get that second seed whether that matters are not we shall see. Philly is hosting NYC AFC who don't really have that much to play for in this match. I lost the Columbus. Sorry missed the Monday show. Did you guys yell about that for thirty. Don't really know. Philly had the opportunity to host. NYC of see the final a week of the season to win the Eastern Conference and they lost the Columbus at home. When the game was delayed they had the knowledge that if they won that opportunity community existed the Games didn't have Columbus the game was and yeah so what I just want to point out that club is Rafi Robin. Yes that Columbus team is five four and one in their last ten so they're not a horrible deemed. Everything you said is horrible. Everything's that has something to play for. You have a lot ought to plus a bad loss on top of the fact that you want first place and get a bike 'cause you've never WANNA play off game and all that also makes this game a better experience like host host. NYC AFC on the last game of the season for first place that something that has a club that you're trying to promote yourself and they've been fun over the last two months. They filled the stadium. The crowds behind them. It's been great. That's kind of one of the experiences. You need also warshafsky game. You got a chance in for basically playoff. The original Philly Union homer dupe dupe do not homer young with a classroom. I saw what they were capable of and and you loved it. Yeah it's an honor guard. The honor guard no on the east and he didn't win kidding just add to that. I do not think it matters. The first game mm-hmm for that second game to play in Philadelphia compared to Atlanta that is huge. That is a big one all right. We shall see what happens right now. Atlanta has the tiebreaker. You're on wins so if Atlanta wins and Philly wins Atlanta will get this thing. we'll see what happens on Decision Day presented by at and T. I believe we have time to do this so I'm GonNa make an executive decision and do it. It's our opt to quiz. How well do you know major league soccer this year. I just wanted to be out there that are produced under thought. We should save this for the future so if if the screen goes black at some noise here's here's what I'm going to be gone for the next three shows for my wedding and I wanted to do this and we weren't gonNA. Do it over the next you you might we're going to take that chance and now we're wasting time. Who has the most touches are up to date. I win polled. So how well do you know Major League Walker Michael Brown the numbers who has the most touches an passes in Mos Michael Bradley Incorrect Darrow that is incorrect chief blessing that is incorrect. Maxi morale is incorrect. All of those are good at is out to us to us is second. WHO IS I. Can you give conference. Florin conference this as a player who's in Medina. It is Harsh Maduna. He has the most completed passes and the most talented this game soccer this season. He is not a single minute for Jim. Currently August high touch high pass players carless. He'll is also the touches top up three and Michael Bradley is third in completed. Pan Gone on vacation to Spain. He might be now but she. It's is created from open play this. Might this might surprise you. We'll talk about him. In a second. I can throw it in chances created an open it up and play. It's a tie at the top Carlos. Fellow Carlos is not the answer adjusted expect specked assist today and it was Carlos Villa Carlos Villa is not the surprising surprising person after him was Christian Espinosa for chances created Espinoza was close but the top three I will count this down for you Alexander Alexander now because didn't plan. It's absolutely not per ninety is absolute Carlos. He'll was third Julian Crescent. The Maxi Morales was second and you just showed me bobby that Max morale is to sign a new DP contracts so congratulations to him at NYC forgetting that one locked down number one or two. I guess no we have talked about one of these two players on the show so far all of the less on this how about this very it's a teammate of Jacob Glorious Fashion Blanco and tied with Sebastian Bach. Oh you'll never guess this one eastern or Western Conference Western conference figured he was GonNa. get run out of town. After last is magnetic Eric how high and expected assess about chances created from set plays dig of Larry. I'll just go ahead and give you that one. It's Jacob. Can you guess who the other two might be bobby. Bobby loves one of them. Jack prices on thought he was Jack. Price is valid. The other one is not Wayne. Rooney is the other one so Wayne Rooney whip it into Birnbaum those in in Quincy America who will talk about his propensity but is that to Cuba questionable Q. Not Make any more stop making him sick right now. How about this who had the most big chances missed Jesse's artists but he was tired. It's either dom dwyer fire or an ammonia Nicholas Nicholson he might have been in a better place in the Audi golden had he finished more of those tomorrow as well. I'm having trouble here Yeah Calamar. How about this dribbles completed breath Alexander Guitar. No Hayes is for no Jefferson Severino no tarring Tara. No Oh Carlos Villa is second triples complete top. One is a teammate of Magnus Eriksson. No Baako Varcoe has he does he does. Lucas Rodriguez was in the top three to which which surprised me greatly which surprised me greatly. How about this tackles one. Diego Chara do Charles not but second place is Jose more rarer Portland Timbers inverted tackles which probably means he went in for allowed tackles yeah because he was out of position. Probably what that what the number one. MLS and tackles one is it. A defender is not a defender Matteis Vera the defensive midfielder for the Houston Dynamo was third another defensive midfielder was I who would it be. We've spoken of him on this show. As one of the best players in major league soccer shouldn't have said that Oh stuck in the middle of that teacher to us in. La Oh Joe Joanna Dough sent to leads the League in tackles one echoes one a- As basketball how about this duels duals one. There should be easy. I've said this on the show. Previously people who listen the listeners right now are saying I know this I know this. I wish I was on the set. He also plays in. La The way it is what do one says area aerial ball was in Israel's Zoltan was second in Areas Anthony Okay. It's not mark. Anthony shares a midfield position with them to leave Latif dancing in the locker room winning dancing yeah. How about this one We'll just end here because I feel like we're running out of momentum who has played every minute this season a major league soccer the goalkeeper Daniel Vega Stephane Fry Brag who's on and veto minone non goalkeepers you already know moon is there there are two others that played every single minute so far through thirty three Games of the twenty thousand eleven seasons Miles Robinson missing game. He missed just missed one or half of what he's not quite there but he's almost there. Jack Elliott check Elliott. Is there well. I got Hey Jack Elliott to off the Union to the Union. Do Need Elliott the other one is a former former union player. No no no come on come on come on. He's a former union player. CJ spunk no but he was there for aerials. Israel's thing is fourth in aerials. Steve Birnbaum CJ Steve Birnbaum planning my vacation Africa. What aiming there my girlfriend really liked instagram. I told him about it. He goes let me know I'll send you the detail of cool like I can afford the Tam player Bro. Eh Tam status he rose Keegan Rosenberg great job okay. Let's talk about bobby though yeah that's what I do. I have I have focused longer out the win at the end. That's why you played a professional sport. US Men's national team Cuba in DC at Audi field the the home of Steve Birnbaum on the eleventh and then they play against Canada at BMO field on the fifteenth Herdman says it's time we are rivals. It's been in a long time. twenty-six players were called by Gregg Berhalter eighteen of those or for major league soccer. There are a number of injured players. Jonathan Brooks Tyler Adams and the like from Europe that we're we're not able to make this trip. There is no Sir Gino desk which is freaking people out and death set after his Champions League game. He's just holding off for now. He's just trying to figure it out just Gimme. We'll time he said Holland wants him. Dutcher are sniffing around very confused by the whole desk situation because if he doesn't want to play it's not like a a thing that he feels like I want to for the US like is that is that a problem look. He's got a decision that yeah yeah. It's fine Sir Gino. That's allowed to do whatever every wants to do because who wants to play for both teams. He doesn't WanNA play and it's like I think he might WanNa play but it's you know if you had he probably not pro. He wants to play for both all teams he can't. I think that that's your most people have the have like two foot in two camps could understand that emotion right is like yeah you. WanNa represent represent both of these things you can't do it and he's nineteen years old now as the decision which pants and make a decision callum saying they will I think but I know I'm thinking about if I'm Sergio destiny. I accident. I'm I live in the Netherlands and I was born there and my mom is is Dutch and I go windows X. Trading Mike. Hey guys pick the US could get awkward. I don't think so we don't know but he probably grew up with a lot of players that he wants to play within the future that he couldn't for the Dutch oranges. We call her and they have a really good fans so he's got that going from two. I wanted to throw out real quick. If anyone out there is a candidate fan. Please let us know if you actually think the. US is your rival because I've actually never heard that before. I would believe it if you were to ask me in a vacuum right now. As if I thought who I I think candidate fans are want to beat the most. I would say hunters but I could be wrong so I would like to know what they think. That's interesting point. We talk about Roy on the show all the time and often times we say you know got a beach arrival right and on the women's side one hundred percent candidate is though rivalry not just in the region arguably in the world on the women's. Sidon in other sports as well like hockey. I don't know much about hockey Asia. I feel as Susanna may know more about hockey than I do for sure. You're blackhawks. No yeah say Chicago Hockey to hockey towns how about this. We're GONNA go through some questions from folks out there on twitter because as we've talked so much about the US about Berhalter and his roster choices over the last four or five months just exhausting I will say this while you're getting married at some point and maybe I'll be on a show the the USA candidate game has the potential to be one of the best games the US has played in the last two years. Maybe outside the Gulf Cup final Canada needs this win. It means everything for them to try and get into the heck's as well as as John. Herdman said we need to change the perception of our of our club or sorry of our program. They're hosting in Toronto at beam. Oh it's only competitive real oh game. US has because Cuba's had four more defections since the five from Gold Cups of they're pretty injured squad so that game's going to be awesome and I'm pretty excited. Ed Do have some questions that we will save for next week. Probably on Thursday or Monday maybe even Brent crabs will ask what does it joined Canada national team in. US national team eleven look like based on the roster astor's for this window so if you want to send US yours feel free to do so. We'll reach read it on the show or I guess you guys Wilkes. I'll be gone and then. BJ From Boston asked about how fullbacks and demands the US's are going to handle the very talented Canadian wingers and wingbacks and I'll let Bobby Mad Susanna and Caitlyn and Dave or whoever's around handle that because I will not be here Chapin's artis again says Martinez or are we missing something you just missing the Gregg Berhalter rates these guys and things that they should be in camp. That's really the long and the short of that one. One Robin says should we make much being listed as a midfielder as opposed to the forty was in the last camp. Does that mean more of a ten than a wide forward. Maybe he plays Underneath Josie authored kinda underneath Josie yeah that's what he had him do at times in the Gold Cup because he felt like with the freedom to flow to either wing he would find better one V one situations than if he was stationed out on one wing and the other team could start the game plan for him. You saw it at times but not enough and I I think the reality of it is if he's constantly on the wing. He's GonNa get more opportunities than if he has to find them at some point going out to either one of those sides so. I don't think this means anything anything. We've had the listed as Tyler Adams station a lot. I don't think it means means you that means more in that situation. I think for sure yeah agreed but I don't think this means anything. Okay we had a bunch of people asking about ritual desma and Alex Mendez who we presume. It hasn't come out yet. We'll be with you twenty. Three's why are they overrode on etc etc.. I Look I get why people love those two players a ton of talent we saw him in the U Twenty World Cup. We're seeing them now in a second league in the air too busy but like criminal donnas one hundred. I'm fifty professional games. He's won championships. He's played twelve thousand minutes minimum as a pro. WanNa gold he he's just he. There's a reason why he would be there right now. There's a there's a reason it's not like you. Just let these guys do their thing with twenty three's that the person said this is sorry. I'm anonymous. They are on twitter. Make a rule that we don't put anonymous accounts Indonesia and look if it's probably Brennan Aaronson who's eighteen year old and got called in the team team that you should maybe do this comparison with reports where the Aaronson killed it at the last twenty three camp you saw that little through ball and turning the midfield that created a goal with missing toy whereas mason toy no medicine toy no pack impossible either you would think probably with the U twenty. Three's we just don't have that roster yet. So how do we feel about Aaronson getting this call up. We we feel that players who play professional soccer should be picked for the national team over players who play with amateurs are on reserve teams. I don't always agree with that. I don't have a huge problem with this like if they saw him at the twenty three's and he did really well and he was a stand out of the camp and we know he's not going to be like this is an opportunity to like blood him a little little bit and both these games by the way are very close to where Brittany Aronson lives. You got so he plays professional soccer. National Team is a collection of professional professional soccer players except for enjoy more. Desmond Mendez get paid to play fresh. They bigger pay to play soccer so they're professional soccer. Players had a different level that there was an interesting comparison Paris in Ear by Matthew to Georgia on twitter eighteen seasons Ericsson's played more minutes and we'll drafted at age twenty seasons or more minutes than role dawn did at nineteen way anymore than Paxton comical just a tad less than Tyler Adams who had about nineteen hundred minutes at age eighteen for the Red Bulls three goals two assists. You know killing a Kosta Pasta better than that. I mean he's having a good eighteen year old season so we'll get to more later on the US national team. Today's not that day can is give an opinion about infineon quick and this is this important people here. It's okay not to have an opinion on it. It's okay to think that maybe it'd be cool if Mendez and La Desma were there. It's okay to just watch it. It play out. I personally am just ready to watch play out if they'd be there. It'd be great. The fact that they're not doesn't make me angry. I don't think it hurts their development personally. I think it's also risky you to send somebody playing in the second. Dutch league to that and putting them in a new environment and there's risked everything. It's okay to just say I'm going to watch how this plays out and enjoy enjoy the national team right now so don't feel like you have to get caught up in everything else man bobby because Bobby Yeldham out for two days for sure I worked because if not I felt a need to have an opinion on it. Portugal my job and it's just the atmosphere and culture were in. It's Oh my God. How do I feel about the Desmond and Mendez and the truth is I would have enjoyed watching them. I'm not mad that they're not you guys made great points right there. Teams would lose Seattle sounders. I don't think either of them would be as good major. League soccer's Christian don or perhaps even Brandon Aaronson but there's also promised there and you went to harness that promising potential so I'm okay either way I personally as a fan even as an analyst and willing to say. I'm just excited to see what happens either. Look Twenty. Three's it's not that's not like backwater bumpkin zone. That's a team that's preparing for potentially the Olympics as important. Those has guys could be huge there. We have six minutes according to producer Andreas who's hurting me along here so we will skip a couple of little things and we'll go straight to Rahman who says buy or sell on the teams that are eliminated needed this year to make the playoffs next year. You're buying or selling. I will send you a team. You will buy or sell on their playoffs in twenty twenty Susannah had to do it had to do the two year Chicago fire you buying or selling playoffs in two thousand twenty well the four Bobblehead Gate Bobblehead gator. Was this bobble gate. I think bobblehead gate gate. Let's go hard corners. Make this gate in gate gate. I'm selling sorry sorry guys and yes some spiteful says. What is your twitter two hundred eighty character version of why you're selling because they didn't send to her boss. The Chicago fire failed to send me a bobblehead bobblehead notes exactly right no I I. I don't know it's hard because they're going to be you know. They've got this new ownership group coming in. They're GONNA BE PLAYING AT soldier field. I just feel like there's a lot of transition transition happening unless they go out and sign some incredible DP or like I I don't really see I feel like this is going to be like a real rebuild for fire. Resume bring in low downscale. Reggie Loan Desk. You can't change ed well. That could change your opinion as it stands right now. You're selling on them. I am also going to sell on. FC Cincinnati. I know this is my shocked what going out on a limb there they got another year rebuild in front of them and next year will not be a playoff season in my opinion for FC Cincinnati mantra impact. Dave and they're starting to do their rebuild Avenue Avenue leaving new sporting director who I'm going to sell on the Montreal impact. They'RE GONNA lose Nacho Peyote most likely if not I'd love him as a player but how many games you're GONNA get from him if you bring him back. I think there's a lot of pieces that I like about Montreal but I don't know that they'll heavily improve from this year to next year and you bring in Inter Miami. Which I think is a better team coming in. That's not gonNA fall down at the bottom. Cincinnati this year all right interesting in seven playoff team still one extra team in each conference to take it. I hadn't thought of that. I interesting question is what happens with Nashville. I thought I read that in air. They were going to go into the east or did he say they're going to. West golly man. I I've read a lot of things. We'll figure that one out but Columbus crew bobby. What do you think Inter out. If you drop the five four and one stat they've improved lately. GotTa go in a door yeah. Why one of these teams has to go in no don't you just said that into Miami. Take Yeah but if you're looking at it objectively. DC United is probably going to fall off somewhat next year. The rebels joined the crew. We're going to get bill. INVALID BILLS COULD BE A follower. I had to buy or sell I would buy but I don't feel great about it also okay let me let me sell you on buying okay. Tim Best Pachinko came in late in the process didn't have a chance to build out Oklahoma full window and caleb porter I had never worked with him before now you go into an off season with wealthy ownership from the NFL. That is their first toe in the water. They're about to build a stadium so they're building towards Ford. Something Tim Basma Janko had an opportunity to build the organization top down and start to look at what their targets are and how they're spending okay oh by sold them on the by itself Orlando City Susannah God they've got the number should be healthy Maurizio. I'm I I'm going to buy just because I'm a I'm a I'm an optimist and I really want way off. You heard it here. I yeah no city fans. She picked Minnesota. Yeah and it's just a gut. I don't know yeah I just want it. I want it to happen. We're GONNA see somebody drop about them. In Miami might make it but I'm with you. I like it. I like Orlando City. They're sporting. KC for me but well this year better there was times it was their moments exactly something to build on hit that buy button for Sporting Kansas City because I think they will also by and maybe I'm reading too much into Peter Vermes recent comments that they acknowledged knowledge. They need more quality that they need. Goal scores need something consistent up top because had they had that this year they I believe in this western conference as we said good not great would have been in the playoffs. They didn't have it so that didn't make it first game of the season twenty nine twenty twenty starting center extra sporting. KC do are either of them on the roster right. Now has a guaranteed contract through twenty twenty two so I don't know how to get rid of him. So you think next year I game Fonterra's and maybe these are the CAN I do this. I'm going to do you this year. I'll I'll buy up all your stock for DOS starting. If not a defender of the year candidate not because not because I believe it's going to happen but that's cheap stock doc and this dude dish shorting. The market in this dude does have a exponentially better resume than his play will take office in Dynamo Dave. I'M GONNA itself. I have to give reasoning just a quick. I assume they'll sell. I'M GONNA sell on the White House. I think they're going to sell a notice. I don't think they have an answer for at least which makes him. I'm frustrated and I don't see them heavily investing in the other spots they need okay. unders is all saying we have to get out of here and I'm saying now that I'm going to ignore him nice so one one more from Mike Donovan I'd love to see a new best eleven for most players that can make you laugh and cry at the same time players. You don't want to look away from because you might miss something outrageous negative or positive and we will start at left back. Where new is our leftback. Obviously how about just throwing it around which guy out here. Lawrence Simmons and obvious early in Kalin is an even more obvious one. Although bobby will say he knows what's going to happen. It's just planned chaos central midfield eld we put in Philippi Martin's which is clearly for good though I'd like to put in Bom because he's a baller and I love watching plane everytime watching play my eyes pop but but good or bad laugh and cry what makes the result makes me cry because he's so happy. Oh Sushi started that was all in on it Roger Espinoza throw in central midfield because he'll make you laugh and he'll certainly make you and or others playing against him cry. I have one for forward trip to food. I was at the Red Bull de game this weekend sitting on the sideline getting ready to do my post game interviews. I was getting in my mindset. Quincy Mira comes off the bench and a game in which is trying to get the zero zero tie out of they put him up top. He comes over to the near sideline and someone's marking him puts his hand up billing me taking a goal kick and he yells put it on my head. It's a Free Ball and looks at the guy goes mark and I laughed out loud and I was like Clinton. He won the header. Nancy kept looking over at the guy too and it was like Quincy. Quincy started this mind game in our when no one else knew they were involved and he's playing an hour your entertainment. It's not an hour ago. Quincy's always playing them because he was thinking about that mind game like the whole all week leading up. He's like I go chick. I'm getting in this guy. Hey let's go if you see it on youtube pulling back the bow and firing because Maxie Oh rooty he is in our chaos knew who best eleven. That's a good one because he'll shoot from literally anywhere he will. He will run down the field. Sometimes sometimes the result there was were there for the Houston. FC Dallas game where he hit it like a blind no order that was was it tests show yeah. I think there was no away. I remember you saying do that once a year. Oh no way I gotta go back and find that I know what about Kitai another one. We we talked about earlier. He will make you laugh and he will certainly right there. I have demere cry lock in this group. Yes he gets some get some weird. He's eight both scored in that game. Yeah they voted. I bet you the Arruti ones that crazy now. It's Tash Really Latif. Blessing is in this group as well. Kindle Watson is definitely in this group. Yeah dunks it and the Red Card if you need an MVP of this group Jerry Save No. I haven't but if we needed an MVP WE GO David the company. That's what I thought. If you're a facial expression Guy Anton dinner home. Also I swear I I would like to pull this off season. I I think that opponents are most irritated and mls by Anton have you listened to the Bi have. I don't think this has ever played against him and he spa AH yeah he's. He's all about this. I really hope they get him on that podcast. It's great. It's great. I was crying and you spend a Lotta time with my grandma. I was literally yesterday. Elga allegation watching Liverpool Salzburg as he's talking about Berhalter verse Marsh. I'm I was actually crying because Grela is we got a we. Should we get him on this show. Actually he lives in Europe. We could probably pay for him to come in by a per- shoot a must have got it. You got a car. The guy's not taking the train for sure now I they are not not at all we got Vegas. They both got pretty crazy scam. Yeah Rudy One. I thought it was maybe Rudy's one is definitely on Tyler Derek. At the time I believe across his body perfect perfect Alexandra Mateus in here is obviously the captain and leader of this team yeah. He's a big part of the show to all right. That's it for us.

Two on Tri: Is Carlos Vela done with Mexico?

"Yeah. Welcome east silos to the latest edition of two on three podcasts from Bristol, Connecticut Sebastian Salazar, and I am joined cross country. My good friend, Hercules, Gomez, who's in Los Angeles. Now usually heard at this point of the podcast, we'd engage in some small talk some banter about me being jealous of where you are in LA. You want this is your this is your world's bashing. I've come to terms with this whatever you want. Well, let's get right to it, then I don't think we have time for small talk today, because if you listen very, very carefully, you can probably hear all the way there in Los Angeles. It is the alarm bells that are ringing in the center of the emend, you're all the way down there in Mexico City, because the Mexican national team is in a total state of crisis. I'm not talking about the you twenty I'm not talking about the Gold Cup though. All of those things could factor into this what I'm talking about is the senior national team. And the fact that their biggest stars are not coming to the Gold Cup this summer. Her going to read you. The list, and then I want get your reaction to me. Give it to me. Go ahead. Carlos Vela out, probably the most creative player for Mexico at the last World Cup Cheeto out the best score for Mexico at the last World Cup echoed Reta out probably the most impactful player at the last World Cup especially if you think about that Germany match Juki Lozano probably the most explosive player for Mexico at the last World Cup out. Miya Yoon, maybe one of the more versatile players we saw in Russia and the lead up to Russia out take Dido who didn't really do much the World Cup. He's also out and probably now we can say most likely outcome. Assad said, oh, he missed some time as a player who played in Champions League quarterfinal. No, no. I'm just saying. They didn't do that much in the World Cup. All right. He fits into the narrative here. We have seven players that I have just listed, including godless, Elsa is not technically officially out, just yet. It's official it's efficient. He's, he's out had a knee injury was almost entirely out of the playoffs. So we don't expect I believe you're leaving one else. What one other out who maybe not had a relevant World Cup. But I think it could be a lion Teke. Tito, chew, Chia-chi Charito. Who else do you want to know who else who have yet? Aquino. Oh, yes. Have yet Aquino who had some very interesting comments after the final, let's save Akina specifically. And maybe what he said for later in the show. Sounds good. Just looking at this list when I say the Mexican national team is in crisis. Am I over speaking? If you wanna say the Mexican national team is in crisis for a Gold Cup. Maybe you're over speaking, but in the overall outlook of things, and in the Montesinos world, which is slowly crumbling around him. You're exactly right absolutely right now on the head. This is worrisome, not only for Martina, but LT fans in general, some would say this is coincidence, that all these stars are aligning and no pun intended in the term, no plan were some and stars aligning. But this is this is to be worried if you are an L three fan so let's think go case by case because what's most important here is that you say, oh, you know, it's coincidence, maybe some of it is not coincide coincidence. But I do think each of these cases is unique and maybe needs to be addressed on its own instead of all his want. So I'll start with Carlos Vela because I feel like he was the one that may be drew the most attention. And I when it comes to the topic. Of stepping away from the national team now. When the roster was announced Dottino. Well be preliminary roster for the Gold Cup dumber Dino, said that he'd had a phone chat with Carlos Vela, who decided that he wanted to put his family and club priorities ahead of the national team at the moment. And the words that I used was in describing, how villa had said it was to step aside her. What's your reaction to that to a player at thirty years old saying that he's family and club priorities are ahead of the national team in that? He's ready to let the next generation takeover. I think this goes beyond this last phone call. I am in ESPN Los Angeles here, our studios in lovely downtown, California, Los Angeles, California, and I am steps away, where they had that infamous sit down coffee meeting at the Starbucks, right outside here, where Gatos Vela there was a photo. Snapshot of knows valley and data Martino sitting outside in the courtyard Chattan over some coffee about his possibility or his future with the Mexican national team. So you fast forward now, he's giving you all the clues. He doesn't want to be around for this. He said at once before last year in a nice, yawn, ESPN segment with Modi's Abydos, were he literally told him there comes a time where every player must step aside, I feel competent in what the future brings the future holds for the for the Mexican national team, the only way for those players to shine is for me to not be this. What he said last year, you fast forward here any saying, exact same thing again. He's putting his priorities which are his club which are his family, which are his Vienna star. His Phillies is happiness. First and foremost to what is now I feel leaving on the back burner. His is national team presence. I got Vela you haven't seen the indepen Carlos Vela wants to pick and choose one. He plays with Mexican national team. Some may say, well, that's a devote thing to do. We don't need players like that. Listen players that got villa. Don't grow on trees, that type of talent you just don't have improved grams like Mexican national team. More many national teams for that matter, if God knows at his thirty plus years of age wants to say that this goal Cup and Nash to be a big factor. Going forward is the importance of this goal Cup. If this goal Cup isn't important for him if right now he feels it's not an anomaly worthy of his time, but not something that's behooves him. Then, so be it because Gatos villa in a way has earned that, right? There are players all over and had rights. Yes. The same way the same way Casey kissing. Fourteen here that, right? Or do you want to hash out why he missed World Cup? Look, he want to go down that road. We are. We only putting blame on the players if the player doesn't want him to what you're saying, you're saying he's earned it there. Specifically name me stuff that, that, that he'll comes the Kuzma time in every player's career where he earns the right to say, this is what I want to do with the rest of my career. Now, what you're saying player have that. Villa is exactly Carlos Vela said, if God Gatos well isn't what the Mexican national team tomorrow, nothing's going to happen, when God was there. It wasn't like there was a great thing to happen anyways. You just took the same words, he said and used them. No, no, no, no. Here's the difference. I didn't get the press release when Carlos velo was announced as the technical director of the national teams where he could decide what was new. Shambhu. No, no. He technical director Carlos Vela, because he's the one that's saying right now that the national team doesn't need Carlos Vela anymore. Even speaking in the third person. So he. Yeah. Not have that, right. What, what point does the player not have the right to choose? What is good for Carlos Vela? I didn't get that memo. What is the bashing Salazar, become the technical director of Carlos Vela? I'm not the technical director of Carlos and I will tell you this. I will tell you this Carlos valley's ever lied to, you know, then probably spoken to me of half dozen dunno. The general public has he ever lied. He's been a front and transparent with the whole time if you if you can't see this coming with Carlos Bella, you are blind because Carlos villa has never once insinuated, something else, he's always been transferred. And I think that's what gets the press. That's what's the gets the general public. Why don't you love us Carlos? Why not look? There are plenty of players. Right. Who would love the opportunity to represent the national players would love to be Carlos valid ahead that type of talent. What does that have to do with Carlos villa has said many times is, he's drops subtle, hints. He's being straight for. Lowered black in white not gray area in this. I'm not going. Simple. That's fine. Then that should be the end. And I actually think that is the end. I really, really disagree the we're going to see Carlos Vela again, in an L three jersey. And here's why tot himself said it when asked he says, I don't think this momentary. I see. This is a life decision. If the coach sees it as such then to me, the coaches moved on. And we've lost potentially thirty one thirty two what could be very useful. With the history of pressuring coaches into doing what they want. You really think there's the last scene of Carlos Bella. Look, he himself has said that the idea of getting to the World Cup at thirty four he said this, right. He'll be thirty four at the Ned with you said, we're talking, we think we're green on the same thing said all I'm saying is if you're telling me right now, if he's at the same level and the next World Cup rolls around, and he's about eight ten months away. If we've seen the last of Carlisle. I don't buy it. Yeah. I just don't I don't I don't know that I'm really comfortable, either as a fan that's another issue. That's that's another issue where I think, we're in agreement with the same thing. Look to me it's, it's, it's very clear that this player wants to, to maybe in the past pick and choose, I think at this point he saying, I'm done. I there's nothing in him and nothing that he said that, that would really hint at a comeback anymore. There's nothing. He said her show, me dot is said, it's a life decision. He said he's ready to step. down and let the next generation takeover he's calling the never light. And he literally says what he means. He is said, you never know if down the road, there's an opportunity, and it makes sense. He will analyze that. I firmly believe he means it. If you're telling me, if Carlos Vela continues in the form and happiness, he has at this moment for the next couple years, form and happiness. He has. Yes. Are you going to tell me that he's not in great form for where he's at right now and he's not private happy, he's ever been on, man. You've been in some locker rooms in your day, does like playing with people over years, monce, does that does that help build a team, and, and the idea of what the coach wants like my are you? Are you or national do we not assume that the Martinez going to be there in Qatar? They gotta build towards something what you think the same players that are that are at this goal Cup right now are going to be in Qatar, if that's the case. You are in trouble Sebastian. I can't tell you how much a team change. That's why you have a pool of over forty players sometimes around sixty because these players change form. Dips form comes up and down. There are injuries. Suspensions are whatever it may be teams change. So the player is your good with the national team level players just being like you know what I decide when I get called up and we're not time out. No, no. I never said I'm good with it. I said, I understand it. So here's the here's kind of like where for me. This doesn't necessarily make a lot of side from the part. You know, it's kind of a joke that he's not the technical director. He doesn't know what's best for the national team. He knows what's best for what's best for the national. Have you seen? Gone, then the closest gone hidden in over his head, you know, seclude the city who doesn't know what he's doing. Is that what you're saying, I'm telling you? He did not know what he got into okay after different story. Okay. But he's going to, you don't want to call them, an idiot. That's what you're insinuating. You're saying there's no direction to the national team insinuate. That's what that's where you're going off in the wrong way here. Don't insinuate if that Martinez, an idiot or not. I know you know, him a lot more than I do. But, you know, you can't just call a guy in idiot. Right. Okay. Well, since we're going down that line. Let's let's parse some words right family and club priorities for Carlos Vela. I understand that the L AFC season runs through the middle of the summer. That's the reality of his employer. Right. And I can appreciate that. His employer pays him really, really. Well, more than he's ever made in his life and probably more than he could ever be paid anywhere else in the world, right? Six two million his salary last year. I don't know what he's on this year, but I assume he hasn't taken a pay cut. I'm sure he's making a lot of money. Layoff of those endorsements as well. He's got a nice nice gig. Yes. And what are those endorsements and that six point two million dollar salary? What is that based off? What does that come from? Is that because he was a start out socio out this, this global mega club that we all know several you'd be more angry fan role was it because or was it on the books once at arsenal? So angry. Six point two million dollars. Only one player in, I can't imagine what you're going to be in player. Eight that's not making this trip to me to me is, is the is the biggest one it's the it's the biggest one because it's been looming for the longest time there's the longest history to it. And you know, me hurt man, there's nobody who's more willing to side against the federation, I can. Absolutely appreciate that, that Valla has not had a good experience with this federation. But this is an opportunity visa are moments that don't come back. This is not for to be a part of a project. What is what is Carlos Vela Tatas over the years? He not care care. You don't care Sep. I understand your frustration. And year frustration is valid because I, generally feel you speak for millions and millions of fans like that is a general sentiment right there. But I don't think it's that cut dry now Carlos Vela has felt because he's a player who left home when he was, what fifteen. Yes. Very young. Yeah. Very young MVP as he has. He has at the point of his in his life right now where he what he wants to do is concentrate on his family and his personal life. He's earned that he doesn't know. He doesn't, oh, you or any other fan an explanation or the national team. You say he's never been anything, but clear then come out say it. I'm done with the national team. We can move on. We can write about his career and wears places in history, are you starting to petition? Is that what you're doing? Yeah. Just do it like, what's, what's the point of being wishy washy? Do you wanna know why? You are Major League Soccer AMC may be a Mexican international leaves that door open right self. Okay. Yeah. All right. Well, if I'm the manager on the coach, and I'm trying to build a team project that tells me everything I need to know about that individual, and how they fit into the greater plan. He does coach coach, messy honesty lien L messy would play a friendly game against a tens in amateur. Don't leave messy was forced to go play against Venezuelan Madrid because of because of contract situation with the Dita's dead. So I did it contract situation with the Dita's he did it for money. So I don't I don't wanna I don't wanna hear that Carl listen. Carlos Vela is at the point of his career. He doesn't see the national team as something beneficial to him. He's always been then retired always been retire. Then retire why why, why not retire? No, that's fair assessment, if it what you want is for him to retire. Now, let me ask you a question. Yeah. Okay. Go ahead, ask you a question Sebastian Salazar Sebastian Salazar, not that the multi, no not any other fan, not any hit de will civil Salazar K fast forward two and a half years. You're ten months out. From the World Cup in cut that nice Carlos Bella is about the same level today. As he is today. Excuse me. He's at the same level as he is today at that exact point in time. The door is open for him, connecting nationally for Qatada. What do you say? Can I ask you how this question what am either choices? No. Now, just like I mean it's impossible to answer that vacuum. What if he's like gonna be on the bench? Probably don't bring them. He's at the same level he is now. Right. But in, in Qatar Shuki might planned for L Madrid. All right now, you're just being look in your saying he's at the same level he is. Now he's lighting up. The three does he make the Twenty-three not if he's chosen to, to not play with the national team for the last three years, Twenty-three, I'm saying he hurts his chances of making the Twenty-three by not being a part of the project. I want to bring up one more thing about this because I think it's I think. My, my issues with with Vela situation are, are can be boiled down to lack of clarity. And here's what I what I mean. I don't mind the, the idea of club priorities. Like, hey, dude, if your club is, is where you're making your money now and you want to prioritize that say it, and that's fine. When he says, family priorities feel like that's playing a card that every, footballer could play every football could say family. I like every footballer has a family. So to say family priorities that's unfair. Why is it on the situation between, hey and his wife and his daughter? You don't a situation what goes on when he's not in front of the camera plane in those, you know, putting around a soccer. But, but I could say about every footballer her Abe footballer has a family. There's no so for you to judge. You don't know when then goes national came takes. Takes takes plane rides. And he's away from his family. What happens behind closed doors? That is completely. That's completely say it's a family. And not family or is it club? Why can't be combination of both? Why does clearly speak clearly decide if you're going to retire not tell us if you if you don't want to be there, white family and club priority Carlos Velayo Sebastian Salazar, and explanation. He doesn't, but if but SABs. Sabs angry little fan right now. Jersey. I jersey when you're with arsenal. Why don't you just be honest with me? Be don't worry about me be honest with the coach we was on coach. I think that the Martinez the one who needs to be honest. He was honest from the get-go. You mean the one went that deal comes out and says, yeah, it's a life decision. That's pretty honest. Dino says he's not going to be with this but down the road. They know who knows. I mean the direct this is Terry. Terry. Where you can be honest, and where you not, what is that, too, that got thrown under the bus, put it isn't throw Carlos Vela under the bus. Aren't those different situations aren't different situations. All all you need. Now you have to put things in context. So what you're saying, here's, here's a some context for you requested out of the Gold Cup due to the birth of a child. He said it, he said, I have a personal thing. That's why I'm out okay? Do personal thing, the first time Mexican national teams, Marcus missed. You know, go Medica games because of the Berkeley Gile also Mr. Copa America game because his friend was getting married. Right. But people say, I have a family thing, marriage child, whatever you wanna make it, they say, it's a family thing to me. They'll mixing in the family is unnecessary just say club, dude club should be enough or family should be enough. But when he got too much going on. Why, why does have to be one or the other sub? That's what I. That's what I don't understand why the Hague. Nashes. He doesn't care about you, or your feelings that gets you as the fan. Why don't you care about me? I spend money on you. I don't spend any time. You don't have a Carlos Vela jersey. You've never had one. No. I don't think so. All really, I don't I don't think I've ever had. I would love I would love it. L A, the honest, the honest assessment. So many I've so many dude. I really do have like every IRO. Jersey nobody has. Mother has important of jersey. This is one of the get you have a row Jimenez, Benfica jersey. What are you doing, dude? Anyway. You don't have Nettie gusty jersey like in the original Nettie gusty Omar on the other side of this line right now anyway, we're going wait on a rabbit hole. I mean, obviously, you know, I'm gonna give you the fan perspective. You give the players perspective. But I I keep I just feel he's been buried transparent. I honestly don't see coming from the ir because I feel if there's one player who's been very transplant transparent from the beginning, it's Bela do you, do you feel like in any way and the point, I made earlier, like the reason that he is, who he is that he commands that he has the club priority to, to take him away from the national team is the national team if Carlos Vela was El Salvadoran or was Chilean, or was anything else he would not have the salary that he does in major league saw. Oh I one hundred percent agree with you say what you want into. So here's a guy who's benefiting from the business of the nationally brawl as bad as a federation heard him. He's benefiting from having been on the national. Now, he's out now mount we all benefit we all benefit from our circumstances. Some point you know, you think we got a job at ESPN because we're looking me. Yes. No. He definitely senior. You got a job because you can speak on y'all. That's right. I can do translation and spots. Honest, we all take advantage of our circumstances in some weight in your television. Thanks. But so how can we folk Gatos Vela for taking advantage of his circumstances that stuff, you know, you know, you know, I'm also a very torn here because I'm the alternate labor person. So it hurts me to scream about the worker in this way. But I do think that it's, it's a unique opportunity that for whatever reason, and it's clear that, that this guy just doesn't get motivated to play for the national team in the way that it's motive here talking about basketball. He's you don't get to be who he is without being motivated to be to be good. You everyone says, oh, he could have been great great dude. He's been great. Like he didn't stumble into being an amazing player Societa by kind of lazy about soccer and liking nuts. You know, he's, he's obviously committed professional this idea that he's like a loafer to me is is he's. You just said it, you said he likes basketball more than soccer man. What are you talking about? He does he tells you Sal, he's the most transparent person in the world. When it comes to things, he'd rather talk about basketball and soccer, it doesn't mean he's that committed in, in, in hardworking at his craft. It just means you'd rather not talk about it, he'd rather not be about it when he leaves that green rectangle he'd rather do other things. But when he steps put in those wrecked in that rectangle on that grass between those white lines, it's a different level. Well, I think I truly do believe we've seen the last of him you don't know I will take the field on this one. All right. Let me ask you this. Do you think we've seen the last of Chetty though, in an altruistic? No, no way he's got way too many Cheetos to sell. I'll tell you what we are seeing a different Cheech over the last sorry, let me let me just cut in real quick. Just to. I mentioned it while we're talking about Carlos Vela. The official reason for Chetty though, being out is he has requested to miss the turnament due to the birth of his first shot and the manager, that the Martino agreed to that. So we'll add, I know and he asked to miss some of the Turner, and she in dot said, you know what this is an important time your life to go ahead and take the whole tournament didn't wanna player whose head was maybe or or somewhere else in enough as sites. I think as a father, I tell you what it is. It is crazy. And and she ate though. I don't wanna say he's earned it because I don't want to go down that rabbit hole with you. But this is a player who I think, is shown as committed to the to the national team also all timeline goal score. Though has earned it. That's one thing if you don't say Carlos Vela has earned it with the national team. I think those are two very different national team careers that we're talking about specifically to teach any. Here's what I think this does mean. This to me signals the end of jetty as a starter. And here's. Kinda why why this this feels that way one. He's, he's thirty two. There's a guy behind him who's coming out human is who's going to be on this team. We just saw the season that he menace, had it wolf. So we know he's coming in. Maybe a little cultures. The end of the season terms of goals, but he's, he's playing stream streamline. Well have you seen Mexico's Gold Cup schedule? It ain't great dog if he can score in the Premier League. He's going to be I think he's gonna be tummy Cuban Bermuda. Canada Martinique you know he might be able to find a goal or to there. I think generally humanness seems to be ready for Gold Cup. Who knows what happens in the fall with this new CONCACAF nations? I think what's going to happen here, he meant is going to be there for the first tournament. Other thought Martino taught that's going to see all his quality, he's gonna find a way to play around and all different player, teach ITO. Yes. And so I think the beginning of the dia, this is just to, to me, this is a it's a critical tournament on terms of the tournament in terms of when it happens in Martinez. Rain in charge in the national team, I human is, is gonna come in. I think he's going to become the starter. And I think whatever those are all here is with the national team. I think we will look back on this tournament say this is when he Menez took the starting job. This is when he became the super sub keeping. I agree with you or not. I mean based on our track record. No, no. I don't. Can I tell you why has nothing to do with the the, the great announced just gave 'cause I'm one hundred percent with you. I think he will be the starting nine for that Tino. But with that position and what the type of player that have yadda Jerry Dornan this is his a goal score and with and he's more of a goal score that he minutes. If there's one goal score on that team is Dornan this shitty this has the ability to get hot. This guy goes on streaks. This guy in the box can get can catch flagel. He's an all around good player. So I think stays in the lineup so I'll give you credit with that. But I don't think if she does for club in hot for country but I will keep them off that number nine, I think it moves that I will in rose proven very capable at Wolverhampton to play various positions. But he plays a very specific role for wolves man. He is fine. He's telling you telling me are you telling me that Dan Marino gonna find a way to get these two guys on the field? She Johnny Dora man. This is by the way, rumored, rumored potential transfer to Valencia which was also rumored over the winner fell apart. Correct. But it w fights today has said that attach Athletico Jerry on this Valencia done deals. Okay. Yeah. He's got one year left right now on his West Ham deal worth noting. So the next question is, if you're very confident that this can happen is, how do you see it as a? Four to where we now have to Don human is to nose. Doesn't really make sense to me. Exactly. So on the field as same time dot does also said, the only time he used to, strikers, in central like that would be tactically, because at the position would present itself, you know, in a way that he could take advantage of it. So it's got to be a four three three it's the only what he meant as out wide. Yeah. No. Yes. No, no, no. Don't say, no don't say. No, was it was the effect was the effective outweighed from Mexico in the World Cup or any of the build up to the World Cup. Did you see humans as an effective winger? Winger was yeah. The plane out wide. I know I knew John. Soda, don't get me. Hole. I has as Mexico ever been affected in a world. You wanna take a guy who who just played as a as a basically a back to goal pivot, where I work with my guys in the premier wolves. Duty all the guys play off of him. Now. You wanna move that guy a wide. So you're telling me that he was gonna play the same system as Nuno speed through us onto. I'm not telling you that, but I'm telling you, he's gonna realize telling you, that's why he benefits from that system. The why, why who benefits what he minutes from the wolves system. Yes. He's a very good player. Very good in. I'm telling you, I think he's more vital to the team assisting than scoring goals. I really do because I think he's he doesn't the middle of the park her. He doesn't go out wide for wolves. He goes wherever he wants. He goes wherever he wants. Have you only seen play central? Look he moves he's he start. He's a center forward for wolves. I don't think he's a centerfold. I think is the best forward. I don't think he's a center forward. We have very, very different perceptions of what human is a skill set. Are you wanna make them a winger? Great. No. So we can get. Don't wanna make them a winter winger. I wanna make him a winner, right? All right. Let's move onto the next one who's missing. I'm kind of breaking this down by category. Went Belleci till I save. I guess, for me, lion, Choky and Carlos said are kind of a different category because there are very much injury crash, the next one for me would be dotted Etta, and he kind of offered up a preemptive strike. But before this became an issue, he put out a statement and the base of it was, you know, I need to recover physically and mentally the said both after having played fifty matches and he also added that he needed to evaluate his future. We know from his wife's Instagram that he's in Madrid and it appears that you're saying has reported, it five-year any moment. It could be done. They've even got a date where the presentation will happen, according to some of the Spanish papers, that'll be the fifth of June in Madrid. To me. I understand everything in that statement. However, I will say the same thing I'll say when I see Carlos de LA family priorities need. The fifty games is not like there's players who have never played fifty games before that's happened, and they've played in summer tournaments and evaluating future. Look at does not doing the contract. He's not as own agent. He's not the guy who's calling the clubs and doing all that they have guys who work for them players have been transferred in the middle of a summer in which they're in a World Cup and participated, just fine. So while I understand the case that gesture makes it doesn't seem to me to be that different from a case that, again every football on the planet could make to get out a national team duty what's his status right now? Is he injured is he nursing an injury? You. Yes. According to the statement, he just needs to recover physically physically, and mentally he's nursery. Amy jury this any also said, mentally, correct, this player has not had a summer off isn't had vacation since two thousand eleven it's been professional footballers have a cage now. What is it? What is it? What reason I've been to the beach at all? What is these idiots always rave about? We need more glass, quotas class. What one in people's glass out these players who are eight type players playing on eight type teams, the rouse, the Barcelona's, the Byron Munich, the PS jeez, the Athletico's you're trying to tell me he's going to go to Gold Cup and jeopardises fitness because he's recovering from an injury do jeopardize Cup is not going to stop letting Madrid from jured. He's nursing knees your these had all year and you play Gold Cup. So they'll make deals. The federation. Win for gold cups about. Hey, what did you win, because he hurt or? Did he was? He heard all year. Did he play? Tired from playing Johm always hurt as soccer player never played one hundred. You should know that. What are you win? What do you get tell me? All right. That's another conversation back into the conversation. That's the conversations the players are saying no to the national team and the Gold Cup of we're talking about the national team the Glock about Gold Cup. We're talking about KUA Martinique. We're talking about Bermuda. We're talking about who else whilst they play it's Cuba Canada. Martinique canada. Yeah. You want to know their, you know, their feet rankings Cuba's one seventy four. Don't wanna know Canada's seventy eight you trying to get me upset and MARTINI is not a full member for those, he don't even get a ranking got me upset, look, do you see any? Forget that it's the Gold Cup. Right. It's a summer tournament. Right. It's it's your confederation championship. Do you see what I'm saying? When I say these, these excuses are not like these reasons shouldn't takes these anymore players before I go into why I think this is all coincidentally happening. Yeah. There's I mean, there's yeah there's all the guys, right? So too key hurts his knee, two weeks left in the season doesn't play the rest of the ankle was knee thought because I thought it was MC L. Okay. Minder standing because he actually went to the central outdoor demento and then had tests. It was walking around on crutch. Yeah. And then and I and I do believe I read the media that you can't play. All right. So he's actually heard. And I you know it's a huge blow. I think honestly, I think it's more of a blow to the Mexican to the Mexican national teams commercial interests, this summer than no. I mean really if you're talking, you're talking about star power. Chook as the guy and we know the whole point of the Gold Cup is to sell tickets. All right. So losing cookie to me both the headed the Gold Cup is two Celtic. Oh, yeah. I got I got some thoughts on the go. But I want to anyway to keys out lion. Had surgical procedure. I'm like kidney condition. Yes. Which is strange because usually with this football this deliver. But whatever sorry, what say that again. Her knee ankle ankle, who lion? No. Sorry. I was saying, who's who else is next has a kidney conditions. He's got surgery think he's out for like a month Carlos outset. We know injured for this, and I believe it's a chronic Nin. Yeah. And has said that he's he's probably at out. Okay. The last one is detail. And this to me is he the last one. Are you skipping past Aquino? Oh, sorry. I'll say the keynote Aquino be the last one. Okay. Because I only have one thought on a key nine, it's based on what he said after the final. Okay. Tito, look was unhappy when you know the team. Announced he admitted that he hadn't talked to Tito, since March when the whole thing went down with. Tito was gonna come then didn't come and Porto was somehow involved in the middle. And he also thought that during that time when talking about this said that there would be consequences, correct. And so to me, this is Totta at his most punitive this to me would be the consequence. There's no reason I can understand from what I see of the twenty nine players on the list that would not make this group would not be a starter. Probably in this group. So to me, this is very much tit for tat. You didn't come when I wanted you to come you're not in the Gold Cup punitive. Am I getting it wrong? No, it is advocating if it is that I don't like it from I, I don't think you are. I don't think it's all though, but I think you're, you're pretty spot on and what I will say in, in doing other shows, and indie exchanging during the breaks, with, with other ESPN the porta talent there seems to be a common thread. Everybody has the same idea that. Said he'll say sow at Porto has this ongoing feud with the Mexican federation. This is going back to one. Also Saudi days with the Mexican federation. And I don't know if you remember one KADO Saudi, oh, basically had a few suggestions for said, he'll say, sow and say you're to your coach. Who's exactly exactly. So there seems to be some sort of beauty going on between the higher up support, though, in what is the Mexican federation and thick owner right now. I believe is stuck in the middle which, which I agree with you. I don't like from that Dutta. We've seen that the swallow his pride many times in Atlanta. Joseph Martinez comes out. He sub downing chose throws a tantrum. He knows Xinguar and kicking things. And thought the Martina just sits there and eats it. Yep. All right, Brown and all of a sudden he's ruling with an iron fist. I don't buy. I think I think there's an external sternum pressure. And I think Porto. Did he'll say sow are big reason for that. Got does absence. Yeah. I mean we look at Porthos history with national teams that they've been dealing with the federation for a long time, Chacha, the, you know. Before that. Right. Yup. The final one on that you mentioned have you had a Keno Diario record reported that he spoke with Datta and asked not to be called a national team anymore after the final with Tigray. He was interviewed and the reporter asked him. Hey, this is a big moment for you. Maybe get back in the national team. He was like he very quickly like ended the interview and his again, hope for the national my hope killers VN like because well for them. And it very much felt like on out and that one to me is maybe transition point here because Aquino would seem to be a player who could still stand to benefit from the national team. Maybe you see it differently but I don't I think you're right. I think it goes more to it than just that, right? Let me let me finish the thought this to me seems to be the one where I'm gonna pull on the thread of the, the issue between these established players know what the federation does who have been teammates with guys who've been teammates with guys like you who have told them, what the US gets paid and what the Mexican national team gets paid. Gonna talk about it. They the collective bargaining, right? And you know what man like dude, I'm out. I'm out because that seemed to me, Keno seems like a seemed like the way he said it when I heard that interview the fact that he's asked not to be called anymore man. That to me sounded like out and I'm taking a stand. I agree. They're also working I'm looking for these comments right now. But I believe in, I'm paraphrasing he didn't feel valued with the national team now. I don't valued with the national team. Correct digging. And, and if I'm thinking out loud, Carlos or soda used to use this player as a got a little and not too much whenever he kind of needed that fifth wheel so to speak. Here it is finding it right now just pulled it up. And it's like you know, any say no to the national team. And sources for a record Rogan Rodriguez Akina. Proceeds goes. Are you reading the article on the record record? Yeah. What are you looking for? Just the comments by him, not being back. Can't find him but but it was him. Not feeling valued. Now at some point. If your. Any type of employees you have to think, and you have to believe and really feel that what you're doing is worth it. It's worth your time. It's worth your investment. I understand the fan's perspective to you're wearing the national team jersey. I would give anything for that. All right. Cool. Cool story, bro. Not everybody would give import once they see what's inside of that. Well, and, and I think it's all, and I'm not the one that should be saying this, you should be the one that should be saying this, but at the end of the day, it is it is your profession. Don't, don't tell me what to say. Well, no, no saying the players should be the one that saying it's it, it is our job. It's, you know, the fan it is it is very van is right on. Yeah. I understand the fan's perspective. I would give anything play for my national team, but these players when they go and play for their national teams. They are exploited there. You're like, oh, boo poor professional where we heard this from he's players get two thousand dollars to put on jersey per game. If you're a US men's national team player for example, and you play the exact same game against Mexico, Mexico gets to grand win or lose. You have to play the US, if you don't play just being on that roster here getting seventeen plus thousand dollars for that game. This goes the same. Goes for any World Cup qualifier. Whether it's Cuba. Whether it's Bermuda, whether it's Jamaica, whether it's Mexico or a top ten rival. You are picking up anywhere from I mean, if you're consistent player consistently in camps on a tournament year almost close to two hundred thousand dollars. If you were the national team, these plus you're also gonna you're also going to charge your imagine your image. So if you do a sponsorship deal with I don't know whatever sponsorship, the US has now. Volkswagen, for example, that's going to be paid Mexico. They don't pay you. Oh, by the way, what's the more more marketable brand to Mexico, Mexico? Both Conrad even close. So I've heard I've heard from these players that in any given three or four day span with the Mexican national team. They're doing hours and hours of promotion, more hours, promotion than actually train, and they're getting paid zero dollars for it. So this is where it comes in the coincidence. These guys, whether individually or all individually motivated by. The same thing are taking a stand against the federation in what would be the most optimal time to take a stand. If you look at it this way, there's nothing big coming out, there's nothing big to lose the other part of a collective bargaining agreement, and you see this right now with the us, women's national team is you can also swing for the fences in a World Cup here or in an Olympic year and that can get very messy in its own way. So it's a different tack to take, but this, especially with the Keno thing for me to set up those alarms given all the conversations we've had, and we've had conversations on this before. So the question then is how does this cat settled, because these guys have unlimited time to sit this thing out and data doesn't have unlimited time to wait for everybody on both sides of, of, of an ocean that is miles apart to come together. I know you're of you're of began religious, you're this was on last night. They actually brought this up now fit at diva. So the the higher. Ups in the federation, actually traveled to Spain to see how Spain divided their, their money's in this type of CBA collective bargaining agreement. The way they did it with television rights, the way, they did it with gates, the way they did it with sponsors, and how a trickle down to the players and what they assumed was fair. And what was I assume that the players came in with some very knowledgeable information? And said, listen, we know that this federation this federation that penetration, and that federation divvy their money's this way, we are looking for this, they did their due diligence. Now. It looks like there seems to be some progression on that front, and the federation has opened their eyes and realize that they need to be more willing to spread these monies evenly in the end of the day, the players aren't gonna aiming anything close to what the federation, and the Los Lunas ladder go. The higher ups are gonna. Out of these tournaments these the, you know, these the best workers, never make what the CEO's absolutely business, but it's a start it's a collective bargaining agreement and it's fair and it's long overdue. Think other you can point to a lot of things in Mexican soccer that seemed to be maybe. The. He discussed about being changed. We've talked about all these things. And we've hit the forty five minute Mark, we haven't even got to the part of this podcast. Wanted just crush the Gold Cup. Look at you. Some little groupie I am. I am someone pays sevi-. Do do you see? Do you see this situation? Almost by default. Opening the door for a new generation of players like is this gonna force to basically be like, all right? I'm going to go with the younger guys. And I'm not saying that those older guys won't be. Part of the team moving forward. But the space is that they will have occupied in this time had they've been around will certainly give some players who now become starters or who become important players and that'll change the future in the path of the national team. Absolutely. How can not? I mean you don't have a Carlos Vela who's the next guy, you don't have Choo. Kilo sun'll. You don't have owner. You don't have a, a caveat Keno, right there. Those are four guys who have played on your outsides who played on the wings, within those wingers, who aren't there. So does this open the door for another wing that we have not seen? Absolutely. They're going to be some winners out of this for sure. I have to ask you this question should we save our Gold Cup episode for another one. You tell me, you sound like the angry one. I think we've gone forty five minutes, I think that's long enough. I've got people banging on the door of the studio. So we'll promise people that next week we will discuss the Gold Cup its value to the Mexican national team to the Mexican national team player. And to the Mexican national to the Mexican football federation, because each of those has its own set of interests. And I think each of those benefits or doesn't benefit in different ways from the Gold Cup any final thoughts are, yes. Stop being so angry. So I've been hosting ESPN NFC for like, ten straight days and all these guys do is just like yell at me. Burly back in town. He just got back today. God. That's all right. Take a chill pill. I'm going out to Portland this weekend for Portland L AFC while get to hang out with my good buddy Carlos villa. He'll be there. My co-host muddy Sepulvado. So be there to Portland. Yeah. We'll be asking. We'll be. Yeah. Richard Mendez is here, today, we'll do some champ is stuff with him. And he and I will host and do some stuff with Malan, and hopefully you from there. If you if domestic will will allow us your presence while I know that, that you were going to be about that, that makes me more excited for the trip to Poland. Maybe we can plan our our Gold Cup episode. A little bit more. I am not going to be in Portland Modi's Beto. So I just I. And I got excited. All right. Well, that's it for this edition of the two on three podcasts. Shoot us a note the Twitter, you can use the hashtag on three. We always like to scan that see what you guys want us to talk about. Maybe they'll inform our run down to the next episode for her sevi-. Thanks for listening. We'll see next time.

Episode 102: Kindle VElla

"Hello and welcome to another episode of book echoes. A podcast for authors. Write your way to success. I'm your host. Connie dowell and two day. We've got a solo tips episode and a topic that i probably should have talked about for a while but i kind of the process. My thoughts a little bit and come to some conclusions for myself before. I started sharing it with you guys. And that is a program called kendall vela now if you have been buzzing around the self publishing world for awhile you've probably heard of can doth allah but if you are perhaps newer to to self publishing or you're coming from traditional publishing then let's start with an explanation of what kendall is and then maybe go into some of what we know about the program which is not much because it isn't actually launched yet as well as the decision making process that i went through In terms of what to do whether or not to pursue writing on kindle bella so first kindle bella is a soon to be launched program for serial fiction now. what do i mean by serial fictions well. It's fiction that is written. Think more like a tv episode but in prose it's not a complete story arc in episode at in there are perhaps multiple story arcs. New follow these characters for multiple episodes over perhaps multiple seasons even so think about it like a tv episode but written in prose and cereals have been you know they were. What's quite popular on amazon. And eventually that fad seemed to die out Amazon is to have a cereals program and be pruning cereals and then they sort of killed that off but now they are going at it with a new program with renewed vigor and the program seems to be inspired a lot by programs like what pad which has grown in popularity recently where many people do publish serial sil- content as well as radish which is a program for writers and readers of romance fiction and they've got and they do cereal style fiction and so now amazon is going after that type of market again so the program has it. Launched yet is gonna launch in somewhere but right now they're encouraging authors to go ahead and write episodes upload things and basically get these episodes in the cancer that when they do launch and promote this program to readers there will be a lot of content already there for them to consume. So what do we know about fellow at this point And the answer is not a ton as i ended up before because it's not launched yet. We don't know exactly how it's gonna work do know that there will be a token based system for readers to purchase episodes and at that will be paid Based on the tokens as well. So it's probably the discussions. I'm seeing are are extrapolating. That is probably going to be pretty similar to the pay outs in the katie piece elect program. Some people are saying it's gonna pay better than kp selects. Some people are gonna say it's less But really don't know at this point but it's probably a similar structure based on what they've done before an katie select which is a program that self publishing authors can enroll their books in they have to be exclusive to amazon in e book form and then readers can not only purchase their boats the purchase price. They can also borrow their books if they are enrolled in the kindle unlimited program. It's like a monthly fee to borrow all books that are in this program. Anyway they can borrow these books on the authors whose books are in this program get paid by the page so it's probably a similar amount of payout the pale for katie. Select does vary based on like the pool of money basically. There's a pool of money each month in the katie piece like program to pay the authors and gets divvied up. Based on how many pages you read so it's not exactly the same payout each month and i imagine it's probably going to be a similar sort of system for kindle valla as well but again we don't really know so that's one thing that we can at least kind of we kind of know kind of extrapolate now. What do we know about the readership of kendall valla. We know about the readership of cereals on other platforms and from talking to other authors from reading the posts on facebook groups other social media about authors who are heavily involved in cereals. We know that these readers do skew younger than the general reading population. We know that there are some genres like why a romance that do really well in cereals and we know that they're probably they're less likely to Jump to novels than near someone who maybe downloads a free book in. Ku they might enjoy that author and then go buy their other novels Or other free to them. Book in that's in kindle unlimited then go by other novels that aren't in kendall unlimited that. They're they're novel consumers but cereal readers aren't necessarily novel-readers there you know there's some overlap but it's a different market altogether. So what does this museum when we think about these things. And what does this mean in terms of making a decision on whether or not to pursue kendall allah. Because i'll be honest. I i can't i can't go through everybody's everybody's intricacies end and thoughts on this but i'll tell you guys a mind because i was really excited by this idea and i i've been interested in celery cereals for a while. It was a structure that i like And as a podcast the idea of the weekly content is definitely appealing to me but it was something that i'd had several ideas that kind of came too late for the cereals phenomenon design the fad was over. I had one that. I envisioned first cereal. And then i. I could bleed and packaged it into a book and actually to touch back on one thing. We do know about kindle bella. They're not looking for books broken up and they're not looking for content. That's freely available elsewhere. Those those are the content freely about billable elsewhere thing. That is something that you can't put on vella. So i have now kind of barnes. My chances to do that story developed. Because i patched it up into a novel instead of doing a serial but i have some other ideas for things that were cereal and i thought maybe one day. I'll find the right forum for this. Maybe when i have time and now that i've developed by illustration skill. I'll turn this into a comic an ongoing comic. But now i've like okay. I've got this cool idea that i envisioned as a serial. And here's it's time but but and here's here's the thing that kind of made me hawes Because the readership is different. It's skews younger And my readers for my existing series of cozy. Mysteries are older. They're cozy mystery readers stews skew a little bit And there are less so there. Perhaps less likely to pick up can develop. Who knows though. It's not you know lunch out. We don't know but that was kind of a decision point for me that if you have an readership that is a little bit older. Or even if you don't because we know that serial readers are not a complete overlap with novel-readers you're gonna be reaching a new audience not necessarily your existing folks and they won't necessarily be folks you can pull into your novel audience. So that is a consideration. If you're deciding whether or not to make a go of it with kindle bella argue truly exploring a new audience or are you letting yourself get distracted by the new shiny thing and that was something that has really kind of bothered me for a few weeks and why. I really put off recording this episode. You know and. I've i've put a lot of effort into my cozy mysteries the past few years and on top of that. I have a Another project going on with children's books at i'm working on this summer and into the fall and so that's already a new audience children's picture books and go. Don't cozy mysteries. They don't go together. I've already made one decision to split my audience so this would be yet. Perhaps a third branch of that and did i really want to go down that road because that comes with extra marketing extra strategizing extra a lot of things and you know that's a consideration to make. So i really grappled with whether i was being distracted by the newest shiny thing instead of doubling down on what i knew worked but in the end there was something else that really persuaded me and that was that bella is it could it could sink like stone or it could really take off and if it did take off. I wanted to be an on the ground floor. So we'll so. Sometimes you just have to take a chance so i decided to carefully budget out my time and devote a certain amount of time to this kendall develop project and see where it goes and also to see if it could be a home for the story that really even if i restructured unst novels not cereals really didn't fit the cozy audience Science fiction cozy as like. I may be one of a handful of people who want to read that So it's yeah so he inspection in general just not the audience. I have existing science fiction in cozy. Mysteries are this weird little mashup but maybe can be the place for something weird. Or if it's not i've carefully budgeted nighttime for this experiment and if it doesn't work out i'll wrap up the storyline and go back to focusing on what i know works so those were my kind of thought processes and concerns. So these are things that you might think about if you are considering starting a serial on velit do you have the time. Do you want to split your marketing and strategizing a little bit to get to get this audience. That may not probably you over to your novels. You want to get on the ground floor and something totally new and different or do you have an existing audience. That's maybe you know consume cereals. If you've been writing romances on radish gears maybe you already. Have you already know that the audience would be ready to follow you to a new platform or if you write romances and had been writing on radish but you know that your audience reads those romances. Maybe it's time to give it a try now. One thing that i don't want to pursue i probably would advise against is children's books on vella. The audience skews younger. And i want to clarify this. Because young doesn't mean eight year olds are going to be downloading fella books. It really does seem from this research. That i'm doing now too to be young adults and up possibly teenagers but probably a lot of the y. A. is going to be pretty similar to self-published way and that is consumed by college students. So think college student and up for the audience but again younger probably that college student through their twenty s. anyway these are some thoughts on avella I have come to my conclusion about what i wanna do for ya. I want to devote a little bit of time and pursue. Bella is one of my publishing arms but if you are jumping into vella if you've got other thoughts if you've got other information i would love to hear from you.

Vela, LAFC cruise past Zlatan, LA Galaxy

"WELCOMING ESPN SE. podcast Dan Thomas joined by Craig Burley Stephen Echo and Brian McBride a Hercules hasn't gap Markazi will be joining US later on overseeing the conference semifinals in Atlanta morning game it's announced to be path of you can praise Vela or at the same time you can praise yourself and I don't think he wanted to do that because the fact that he had that conversation with in the beginning of the season about making sure that you make the year the messy of this league and make it happen you see what he's done this season it does well let's not go too far Brian I think I think the question might have caught Bob Unaware sort of let them down as beggars belief you can't even even if you dislike the question you you you can't tell the guy together question though is to this club in the biggest of moments when most mattered he stepped up I think he took it the wrong way you could have gone so many different ways with this just chose the wrong way I get one it I don't know there's a lot of history but Sevi- Does like he like asking uncomfortable questions I thought it was a very fair question Bob Bradley has mentioned he defend Carlos Villa but the way he went about it wasn't what many would have wanted and listen savage is doing his job we need more People Exhibition Salazar in this business doing and I think Bob just was had had enough of it I think two point about too many people in my opinion there are too many people that floated around major leaks just not in the heads nodding dog at manages players and coaches for fear of reprisal. So I'll tell you the one thing that said Sal zone yeah well I mean we did the right thing anyway push them a little bit arrogance of the highest from Bob Bradley he thinks he should know as well as chose exciting as well point interview between Sebastian silence all Bob Bradley people have asked questions about Carlos Villa in big games what can you say about his performance Gordon here and he himself said as Cassese brought up in I think can use social media coat himself ill in the year questioned calories villa who ask those questions over the course of his career those questions have been asked this year how many have you had that question I think it's a fair question his Eh Carlos Villa escorting goes as is because he's planning major league Soka because everybody else is being these records probably felt maybe even less than that of the back with staff as well savvy love it probably going to get back wasn't they and then in the end decided not to scarlet a step up in the biggest moments said he being a good reporter knew that he asked him I thought it was an opportunity for Bob Right there to pump Carlos Vela up to show how much tonight this season get loft lost thank you Bob Spike Spike performance from Bob Bradley about doing it in big games so I think he was absolutely right to question the arrogance of telling some of the get lost when you don't like it eh of all the questions that could have sent him up just say yes I'm really it's an easy answer is it is the problem I think I think there's no question said we wrote aw an apology for anybody it won't shock a responsibility nothing option right and above Bradley doesn't like it and tough I remember that's one of the reasons why it was like because obviously that was a lot of build up to this game what was the atmosphere during the game light it was electric and at times very very tense now I don't mean tents in the way you think that all of a sudden the galaxy fan base is going to fight the AFC fan base I mean just in general walking on eggshells back to haunt us it was very eerie and then all of a sudden the third go-goes in the fourth goes in and before you know it it's euphoria and in the last ten minutes was about in the past history with the La Galaxy at times when they scored a goal when L. AFC scored those goals it was more relief than euphoria and then when that to to hit the comedy of errors I never child who is at some point who knows what annoys we'll argue with each other nobody's going to die from this walk survive but just didn't Taylor Miller air to let that go in it was just a collective sigh of Oh no here we go again like these old skeletons in the closet major league soccer wants to immediately fabricate these rivalries this is a bona fide rivalry Tuesday the clippers and the Lakers out here they debuted their season tickets these BOT managing here euro because I've been able to take the pressure of mine engineer but that's what it is it just wants all his own way I don't know maybe Bob wants to come out and he lost is a total lack of class let's talk about the atmosphere there obviously you and your family was their daughters l.. AFC shirt just tell us as to go over and check the Monitor Craig in to that point normally sometimes you sit and wait in the referee just goes like this the role Whitney on threes sleep no question whatsoever hook you know seven than any of us is history here holding his ear waiting to hear and not getting an answer right away this answer to play on almost immediately and everybody is watching it had to have been shocked because I'll tell you you at least I thought immediately he was off side and the crazy part of being and kicked off almost maybe fifteen seconds later as amazing now from fans point of view this is a great game eight goals thoroughly entertaining from somebody who's played is electric as I've ever felt ammon any type of stadium I've ever been in what L. AFC's been able to do here with the galaxy and create because we already know how if I'm an La Galaxy attacker I'm a bit frustrated in the sense that we're letting things just fall apart I mean that that lasts thank you enjoy or you frustrated by the Ariz- that we saw being attacking player I enjoy the heck out of it I think you know you know that there's another opportunity coming I appreciate that five three for people watching the game for people watching the TV and refunds I enjoy it but on crazy like for this game I saw ticket prices some as far as three thousand five hundred dollars you pay for your daughter might hey let's touch was write-backs and that's why all of a sudden these all of a sudden world-class attackers Wayne Rooney Slot Don Carlos Vela against very very below average defender at times spend more money on these offensive players they're big names that are going to draw people in that are flashing that can score goals leaves less money for those defensive midfielders for their centrebacks just let's talk about this thing as well she's one of the biggest games in this league with two of the biggest clubs and as Abraham Victor Jokingly striker's big names but in neglecting because of you structure your neglecting are very important part of the game which is Defense defensive midfielder a demo tape for major league soccer of what they want this is up yeah they're happy come here preseason for looks absolutely fine I have no problem with what I have a problem with our what is building zone and level controlled by the not afford by V referee upstairs but yeah he's drinking coffee with Magic Johnson is difficult to to fantasy here he should at least struck the referee on believe today's major league soccer not like the Premier League when that also making a hush that's another story doc my level this is what have you thought about your time here was the best so imagine if I don't play Melissa who but from a from a game point of view from a from a professional point of you know wonder who's eight goals in this game because defensively it's a jewel are we releasing their face award they completely ignore the fact the point stages made as the Fox are you happy to bring in top attacking midfielders you talk about them so apparently you've reports have it that he don't talk sort of big cooling off in the I'm very expensive it's demeaning and it takes away from what this league is done in twenty three years the people that have been a part of this league and really to me is of soccer in this country think poorly of emily's and the fans who actually know soccer outside of Emily's think even less of it it it stands out as a way of making people who don't necessarily understand soccer in this country who aren't fans of college villas talent at twenty years old and he's prime then guess what you're gonNA lose five at least listen to this is if you were to get defend those and the me right but you're exactly touching on that that's exactly what it is it's a very top heavy league because of the salary cap so when you have the salary cap rush you have three new franchises coming in Miami St. Louis Sacramento Paranoid Brian. I'm not being paranoid what and when the League is come so far there's been great players that have played in this in this league the League continues to grow it continues to the floor something special obligation while you thoroughly enjoy until you want the defendant is absolutely embarrassed and quite frankly linnea money so can we expect Melissa money related with the money to see you here next year if the money is I'm pro chicken and head gone talking about major league soccer's v point four seven five six eight goals a game and all that nonsense but they completely ignore the fact as I say because that's yeah and then it's difficult to you know because you know the paranoid argument is and how would we do against you know we don't really interest would be against the other leagues ECON reminder think a certain way that don't necessarily know the sleep you'd be nowhere annoyed totally paranoid listen the man is a soundbite in the half and when he it was just the party there was nothing nothing in the sort of pressure to cause anyone feel like they're going to be glit- again because he has to be in control he didn't even go out and check and he said he needed a signal from the VA or people to go out and check I don't stay nobody will remember what Melissa's I have a problem with that I I saw you earlier today Brian and you don't normally get angry the digital hit he's a great player he he is someone that can be have a positive effect can make team better that can win games on his own because the scoring goals and this league pertain to the defenders are out there doesn't either what we heard last time talk about the last thing I want him doing is if I'm on L. A. Galaxy even more so undermining what I'm doing and what the League's doing great vol decision this is speaking of the game but how affected them going forward was difficult because you're it means that the game is X. said bombshell was often you can see where where he's going for this so there's only two things that he gets out of this I don't want either gets a better contract forever well see wants to go right he and I'm not talking about people people make mistakes all the time I'm talking about the basics you know we we demand just called straight through for he gets he gets La Galaxy thinking while we really need to have this player more so than we even thought before because I said this on on the thing yeah but remember he get all the expansion stuff that's Hartman I'm not quite sure how that's going to strengthen the legal brian because I think it could be a dilution of a product denote jokingly said what was the referee Magic Johnson I mean what the hell of it right the hail of doing in VR fees telling the referee CENCI is I'm GonNa agree with it and I'll say that's great but when he says something that is going to older mind make sense quite often you can't measure it because of the way you've structured your league for that very reason the defense of a defense if you happy with that's fine if it's just about gold yeah in fact do you want better nearly ten years ago he left a very small club called Barcelona I'm gone these guys aren't GonNa Win Anything Screw Party and of course we know how that worked now obviously there's in another superstar and and four months time Zack nobody's even remember one I order that he said anthem about Emily's obviously fallen out with pep Guardiola and said wow now that I'm gone and remembered only been there year and knocked on the semi final of the champions Achey said wow now that no it's not about money I was joking what happens next year I don't know I mean I think this is good because the whole world will watch it allison excellent season but the hose Latin story good embodied has raised the profile unbelievable because people just talked about Oh yeah all the time time and I disagree with you there because because when David Beckham was there right we had I had my wife had all her friends calling hey can no no messy as far as I know at the La Galaxy to pick up the slack but that's not says these things I don't think it's it's worth getting bent out of shape it's part of the character Woah game tickets so you're looking at what I'm talking about is the soccer fan base here in in in mls the people that already fans they know they know that remember mls yeah I agree prickly be paranoid nothing anything just because he said listen I feel people bill and the Senate doesn't even go into a need them that's basics and if you ask if you've got defend those who are playing against somebody whatever's lock on says is whatever right I'm talking about the people who don't understand mls and who quite honestly overseas think very low slot on and this is what he does he has a history track record of doing this everywhere now major league soccer slots invalid this whole rivalry is taken it to another level I'm with what what is the va or people doing but yet I don't WanNa complain about that Guy's just lost I don't WanNa be a loser complaining about the Ref because on this we did yesterday on the portis which went all over Latin America because of because of slots because of this trash talk because of the way he is really he wants to be compensated properly if he's thirty eight years old and he thinks he's the best needs scoring thirty plus goals a season he wants to be paid if he really feels he's the best he wants to be paid like the best that's what slots in it may not be about money but it's about pride Gab why is he going to be a great question same anonymous I don't go along and they hop tell people because I'm not bated interested anyway not bothering but they wanted and I mean he could pretty much right his own ticket now I don't think it's a coincidence we've already seen a little bit of slots on road show over the past two weeks or so he's been linking himself to or he's been being linked to clubs back in Italy from from Napoli to to me never talked as much probably for a good maybe even more so than when David Beckham is there they've never talked much okay there's a rivalry with Eliot cutler the people are just going to watch people always not game and listen to that interview going to go there must be nothing because you don't think it's going to get people to change them take his time he's going to see what's available over on this side of the pond there's also flights of fancy you know the romantic option of Boca Juniors that's probably why doesn't everybody understands a lot done you're actually forget one important thing that everybody understands slots who he is John to winter some some whispers about clubs in in England as well I think like meteorology knows what he's Brahima rich phase listen entity there is we have never not so much but people that follow major league soccer and are really keen and enjoy it them being slaughtered and what he's trying to do right now he's trying to leverage more money for major league soccer stay next year this is exactly what do they may not understand major league soccer and the level but they understand the union it was straightforward in the end really for the defending champions ten minutes on the clock Martinez plays into vassal. The change doesn't believe that you know I mean but he believes he is very important to to this league but then today I'm critical whenever have talked about a major type thing maybe teaming up with the not be Kinda cool maybe go to China for the paycheck maybe you stay in La he says it's not he goes the slots on brand leaving aside his salary will generate money for whatever club he goes to and I think it's only fair that he gets a slice of that Lucia goodstuff Hartland with major league soccer outwith something's standard of play Ibrahim is going to have a team is going to go on that sounded this let's see Slavic towns that sound bit when everywhere so what what do you mean what this is it's not vengeful at this point of their lives his career understand who slot on is this just comes with the territory the thing you said was true that it's not really about the money for him ends they before that is L. AFC against Seattle sounders and that game is live on ESPN on Tuesday victory away against Southampton it's the worst defeat in the history of the primarily a home sides jammies in the Premier Li less than move up to second in the table after a nine nil what's on CNN mls complete known sues your he's he's talking about him constantly he just said that no one goal but we'll play in teams of hot at least one man off maybe some of it more and I'm telling you it's about like this already getting diluted because you get more difficult to get more quality end a Kinda know where you're saying in a way we was lots of you know he Italian even these guys are maybe three and four divisions below can frustrate of jokes in Pearland united of Cinna because sometimes you can make oh can you say just generally the defendant and stuff like that but it's actually if we just take the side they've come a long way she absolutely right Benin Gabon off the end of the show because this isn't the first times latins done this of course while he was in France he did exactly the same to League on the of it those people comment like that is going to affect you can't compare policy the public big European Leagues puts the underside of the crossbar and in seven minutes like a good chance of the union great same five broad Kuzan yes it's super save mixes but I think he's going to take time he's going to figure it out that was would you believe in on the game last night not quite as high profile in the Atlanta taking on Creatine Chances Warren of it what you're going to do an attack incense you even make it difficult for less her a good site to try and break it dom easy it shouldn't take a lot walking it's not it's not a situation where you have to look at the bench and try and get some help but what did makes it one of the Martinez Martinez let's run go pass volume space and what a finish this fantastic chip difficult for guys with way more talent no have two teams in the Premier League disparity between the quality of the teams and you can't even make it difficult I feel like I wanNA stop with the players that sometimes how the Phoenix Nafta that go home go home Ellsberg spreads themselve folks save and then gets his knees up to make sure the clouds this tax pros go ten minutes ago Placement Conference final you you as a player and especially as a group you know you nothing's changed other than you've lost an attacking player so defensively you should and then you try and go from there you don't just carry on way openly impossible around just smacks of a team that this first half normally reaction if it's not after the second goal you think okay just because the red carbon giving up now you've given up the third goal and out pass in the consistent pressure that might happen but when you stop being prideful mindful of positioning and shape and understand nothing to give the nobody organizing on the field and on the field of play they don't have good enough players nine now what's your worst of April uh you automatically a few if you call yourself a professional you automatically go on though you prove everybody and you bought and does the High Cheese Creek said would be sailed tasted Martinez had a number of challenges on the night in the end to thank this one to head the bloody ball it's not difficult be that wide open anyways there shouldn't be easy chances second balls that fall down in the penalty area just because you have a player sent off they should still be yours that are one now the I can't remember I know certainly remember the nine I think this comes down to pride you know when that third goal goes in and still in the and you have to work harder when you're down a man that that shows a lack of character and maybe just the fact that each player doesn't want to play for look at the stadium you look at the fan base you look at them there's all these different clubs Minnesota w they're Fossey's struggle there and this year they had a really good seasons about money I don't know he's obviously not gonna earn what he did before if he has his heart set on something and I think that's going to matter most remember to about unconsciously slot sounds really interesting there's a lot of times basically saying the nobody'll watch Emma let's go slots I won't be there well these walls all four all four in the back line of played all ten games have started all ten games and that stability allows players like Vardi and right losing Amman an almost losing double vegas is a disaster and a full pol looked usual that can a given up on each other a and C an any single southampton player talking to another Rogers running around the we're all just running around not and you don't even do the basics first and foremost less button though in the heart chase to half time debit we reorganized we make it difficult they made home celebration for the whole family knighted then set up a date with Toronto. FC In the game on ashamed I'd say even though they go off correctly yeah that was at one of minutes I believe too and the twelfth manella boats by Taco no qualms it's enough we'll just pass the ball round they just went for the jugular and even though there's nine goals I think for Leicester the stability at the back is what's impressive to me being able to get out of tight spaces bring players in and young harvey bombs looks good young players will gap nine now you hate this is an Italian between L. AFC Galaxy L. AFC winning by five goals to three against the city rivals thrilling encounter post understand that and I always said this losing losing and losing Bhai four or five goals as a really bad laments who come into this James Madison who's really starting to put everything together not just have that nice little thinking Shetland not walking for the guy standing next to him and with nobody on the field to tell anybody year knee then it's a complete and utter it's a bit late when the Law League teams an opportunity to go to your premier league team with eleven men and this and for on just seems to be a little bit loss you have to give some credit goes volley how trade Perez hat-trick Certain Times teams just say okay next year for five in the metal with no bill till the manager's job even if he's not looking as if he's doing it arrays it I mean the guy must be gazillion Ariza's and if he wanted really wanted the money you could probably go China but she wants to be compensated proper their teammates I've been looking at the monitor it's not it's not stevie said Brian it's not difficult to senior player with experience and you've got two years later experienced you've got experience with leadership forget four and five maybe someday slightly more to talk and possession so if we break away we can get ace we go for walks we still dragging your strike back then so I mean teams can score against pretty much craig in you would get one of the senior pros we prepared people in here you do this you did up I don't remember what Jim is the great funding sports breeze gusty winds heavy the roof was maybe have a good someone to transfer when I didn't have to be free but Gorgon and see but I think the team finds saying once again awesome Hutzel as the people who are already saying Brian He's gone and he doesn't know what he's doing any even though he offered Tequila last year when he was I have absolutely no problem with people scoring a lot of goals even after ten men even when you're five Nola halftime if that is what the cultural context demands Ralph hasn't hotel can have no problem because he would regularly run up the score back when he was in Germany that's that fits Germans in German culture as well I had around you go right don't care what he says and the story this is what we do does proper senior experienced professionals not people that just particularly at home plan against Tottenham say who last season this would and the way they were plan was a different ballgame this having I think I'm GonNa Lean Liverpool I think the weekend show on the mid week as well was pretty considering the way they both have started the season you worry it's all saving about this game I'm actually quite cool but to be honest with you pretty yeah I mean you can share with his players if you like but this is on him which is your which is what my point was initially with any yeah which is any che's this week of course the big gains to stand outside is an field on Sunday Liverpool playing host to Spurs of course very different fortunes ended up having a lot more pressure put upon themselves and all those question marks added up against the Liverpool side that can hit you quickly they can hit you methodically emphatic. I'm GONNA live double bluff Dec- you're worried about the option bought them and you all know no feet so if he tells you go and jump off the cliff you're going to then today you too many players I think are too absorbed what the court says sometimes oppressing pressing be playing thinking that way when it's eleven eleven is hard enough playing that way when you're man trying to press all over the pitch when you're a man down up too much I think the fact that the possession that Tottenham used to have last year isn't there isn't a strong so the back three or four simple he has an expiring contract and I think from the club's perspective the he hasn't signed they of course it's not only the center bags of question about whether or not they're committed to Spurs Christian Erickson as well gav oviously hasn't really featured as much as you would expect this game last shoot Liverpool had the school molasses manner this time Roan this Tottenham say is so lacking in confidence the you know when the right six thousand five substitute appearances so far this campaign in all competitions what's the deal the deal is in every game this year why wouldn't that be we should it lost me united yeah but then why wouldn't I mean why would not be confident tastic because I think we can do it they're thinking the complete opposite they will absolutely go illiberal and Liverpool after them straight away and they battened down the waffle-sole which clearly most of these are not then he plays whilst assault after the mining just said to you for five ten minutes maximum you get off the boss they're thinking well she wanna hear today that's not what they were thinking last year last year they were thinking tell you what we go here again this is good that should be beat the bookies obviously agree with the Liverpool big favourite suits one on Spurs me working at twenty six to five draw seven to two gap how do you see this there's been too many changes hasn't there been from and along with those changes the injuries to the

Self-Publishing with Dale L. Roberts

Self Publishing Children's Books: Marketing and Promotion

"Awry over the past couple of weeks. We've been talking about self publishing children's books and Now let's get down to the nitty gritty. Lot of people wanna know okay. How do i sell more books now. Naturally in order to sell more books she got to of course get out in front of more people. How do you do that. Marketing and promotion. But what do you need to do. In order to market and promote your book properly as a children's book author. Well there's so many things we can talk about. I'm gonna make sure we summarize today's podcast episodes. So make sure that you stay to learn how to publish profitable books and build an unstoppable author brand with any author and self publishing coach dale l. Roberts this is so publishing dale podcast. What's happening dale here. And i'm just tickled to death. You took a little time to spend a little bit of time with me to talk about my favorite thing self publishing books and all my goodness normally. I go into a sponsor spot of sorts. But i thought i would just take a minute or two to say. Thank you to you. You the listener. You the viewer. Those that have been supporting me on twitch. I wanna thank u Whether you're taking time out your day to watch the content whether you're ordering something through an affiliate link whether you're being a subscriber on twitch over on youtube those things mean the world to me. It helps enable me to give you the information that you come to look for. I kind of think of it. In this regard. If you happen to be nude self publishing with dale the thing that i pride myself on is i obsess over such a niche topic. Who's not too many people that that just obsess over it. But i'm says over self publishing so that you don't have to. I want you to focus on writing. I want you to focus on publishing want. You'd have to sweat about other little small details. And i tried to just curate. The best information the cream of the crop and provided to you so rather than the sponsor spot this time around. I'm gonna give you a big thank you. I definitely appreciate it all right. Let's get right into self publishing children's books marketing and promotion. We gotta started out with a little bit of prep work. It's so important that you get these things put in line because they're after is going to be an uphill battle even worse than probably would have would be the prep works going to include having the right packaging now when i mean packaging. Let's start out with the cover. If your cover does not match up or measure up to the top twenty inside your children's author knee then g you gotta go back to the drawing board. You're going to need to hire someone who can do it to the can make it look nice because hit cover is not going to be something. A kid is going to want to a read or be a parent even want to touch so you got to please both audiences and make sure a good cover is something you invest in next. Thing's going to be copy aka the book description. You need to lead with your best stuff right away. Now i'm telling you need to take segment and post inside your book description but you have to have a conversation with the parents because most times ninety nine point nine percent of the time. A pair is going to be buying your book for their child or some. When that's an adult is going to be buying for the child. So get that book description really dialed in. And it shouldn't just be well. This is what you're going to expect in. This is what they do in everybody's happily ever after. No you're going to need to make sure you hook about and show what's going to be inside then call to action by it now. All right the next thing is this is going to be no more prep work. This is going to be require a little bit more time and sometimes finances right book. Awards an editorial reviews. I'm clapping as i said this because there is emphasis. I wanna to put in each one of these things book. Awards are one of the best ways to have some prestige some credibility some authority lent to your publication. Because if you've got a little sticker on your child's your children's book then chances are very likely parents going to go. Look this one and award so it can't be too bad. So that's something considers book awards and the next thing is going to be editorial reviews because before you get it on out there you want to get somebody from a credible authority position for the likes of people like Qurqus or union square review or even re discovery. Any number of those places can give you editorial reviews. So how do you get those book awards. And how'd you get union or get the editorial reviews little bit of foreshadowing. Almost just misstep there Book awards. I'm going to say this to my dying day. A right go to book award pro. You could go and get book awards on your own if you want to. But the problem is there's hundreds of thousands of book awards out there in the world and it's tough to sift through all that stuff know what's going to be the most appropriate free but the nice thing is gang over book award pro. They sweat all that stuff for you. They worry about finding the right book. Awards for you in matching you up with those things and really the nice thing about their plan. That's third the top tier plan is that they will submit the applications for you. Now why do i gush about them. Because i did a thirty day case study and they won five awards in thirty days. Hello sign me up for more. By the way folks you can take a look over book or pro affiliate link over dot com slash book. Award pro also is going to be a lincoln said the show notes. Next one predatory reviews. I highly recommend look into union square review. They're not expensive but they're not cheap by any stretch. Really really like what they did. I've worked with them before you can. Go take a look over my dealings dot com slash union square review. Now why do you want book. Awards editorial reviews again comes down to getting that third party credibility getting to where someone says. Yes this person's the bee's knees yes. They've done some children's book and you're going to love and here's why let's move this four. We're gonna push this car for. Because i still have to talk about five ways to market and promote a children's book believe it or not prep-work almost set building out in advance reader copy team. Getting an art team together is one of the most effective ways to have an amazing book launch. And how do you get advanced reader. Simple there's services out there like story origin or books proud or book funnel so where you can actually do some newsletter swaps with other authors. Inside your niche theory is behind newsletter swaps. Is you know somebody on story origin. That has let's say for instance the children's book you have a children's book and you both have newsletters so you share their book their share your book. The nice thing is you promote together so building out that advance reader copy team though you can also do this over through those services and bring in the people that are willing to read your book and advance with the expectation that they will leave an honest review when it publishes how right so. Now we've got all the prep work out the way. Let's talk about five ways to market and promote your children's book right. Start out easy peasy. You'll know this one. I wanted predict say. What is dale most likely to. If you've been following me long enough and if you just happen to be the first episode. So probably be no surprise when i say amazon advertising by far and i've even heard even brian cohen from amazon at school. Talk about this as well. By far children's books have the lowest cost per click verses their adult content counterparts. Use me. I almost missed that. Went up Why this is really sure. Maybe there's not as many children's book authors out there utilizing platform. But i would really recommend that you look into doing this. And you've heard me say in the past that to run amazon advertising. It doesn't really cost all that much so long as you are not putting a budget that you can't afford to lose and keeping your cost per click low so when i say low you're going to do embarrassingly low like you wouldn't even wanna share with anybody you're going to pay. Let's say ten to fifteen cents cost per click And you're going to keep your ad budget down to about one to ten dollars per day. Trust me had a low. Cpc like that. If you've got about one hundred good relevant keywords with a specific ad you still not going to go over budget. I'm hard pressed to seeing that. But the nice thing is you're gonna find the low hanging fruit the key words that are convert the best that costs the least. Because we want to get in the victories that we want to where we can all right. Let's push it forward here way number. Two book clubs. Oh man believe it or not. There's still book clubs. In fact they're alive and kickin between your local libraries and through like sites like book clubs which is spelled b. k. c. l. u. b. z dot com. There's so many ways that you can reach book clubs that are specifically looking for your type of content so By the way. I just kind of have have aside here. I mentioned union square review. The nice thing is they actually will give you placement two book clubs dot com for free. goes out to tens of thousands of book clubs and such When you get a four star five star review can't remember you'd have to go visit that link again but it's nice that you get that type of placement but you can go with the path of least resistance and i would just say what you local library find it by now. What programs that you can get involved in now depending on where you're at in the neck of the woods or when you're listening to this podcast of course we're right now still. Some areas of the world are in lockdown. So that's probably not gonna be possible so you probably have to find the online alternatives if you do have a local library it's open and my insincere in columbus ohio. It's open but they're not really having a community events like book clubs. Then there's that so just keep in mind you might have to do online for now but if you happen to be listening to this few years down the road maybe we are have had all those restrictions lifted and we can all go out and actually intend clubs and person way number three for marketing and promoting your children's book. It's gonna be video and audio interviews. Now don't make the mistake of me telling you and thinking that you're going to do an interview and you're going to sell scads of books that you're going to become huge that you're gonna like oh as soon as i get on this podcast. I'm going to sell a thousand copies out the gate. Not really when it comes to interviews and appearances most times. What this does is it. Gets you visible. It puts you in front of more people. And i think it was once put Before that if you are a salesman that it takes usually like six or seven different contacts before person decides they want to buy. Will somebody happens you for the first time in an interview. I'm hard pressed the seeing that the trust you so much that they're going to go over and buy your book but the nice thing is next time there inside the library or their over barnes and noble or maybe they're chatting with a friend and they see this particular book that is yours go. Oh my gosh i remember. That person had an interview. Maybe i should check it out. So get out there and get as many of these interviews as possible. It's gonna come down to this not sexy. It's not perfect. Are you gonna do is do a google search comes down to that in all you're going to do is search for parenting podcasts or channels or find anything relevant to your niche for children's books and all you gotta do is a search it up offer to send them a free copy. Yeah no you're gonna have to eat a little bit of cost but you just send them an e book copy. Then that's great. Don't send it right out the gate make contact with the podcast or the youtuber and say hey blah blah blah. Are you accepting interviews. Because i'd be excited to do that. And i'd be happy to send you a free copy of my latest publication provide value. I write these podcasters. These youtubers and these video content creators. Don't really care about your book. What they care about is their audience. What you can bring to the table for their audience so lead with that in mind when you're reaching out to them instead of ham children's author you should have me on. No you have guests so yeah bring me on and by the way my You're gonna have to give me one hundred dollars in order from me. Appear no don't do none of that stuff next one number four. The press release i. This is an interesting one. I've actually dabbled with this. And i've had some friends have had some really great success with press releases. Sometimes it comes down to perfect timing press releases believe it or not are easier than you know. Super super simple. You can find some services again. Google search away from doing it. I think Might be pr news dot com. Might be one of them. That does a free option. And then you know. There's a premium versions as well but it can be anywhere from free which gives limited exposure to about fifty to five hundred dollars depending on. How much reached that. You wanna do. I would recommend that you do a press. Release as you're getting ready to launch. Don't wait till after the launch. Because you laugh to launch while this piece is going to be you know pretty much all they want relevant new news and if your timing is just perfect then you're gonna be good to go All right way number five burning through these here today. Folks free and premium book promotion websites. I actually had somebody reach out to me personally and said hey you know what are some places i can do this ad. He recommend. I should have a post on our website about this. But i'm like. I just always send people over to my go-to and my go. To's include Kindle per noor reads e david goggin. tc k. Publishing all four of those sources are very reputable and they've actually curated a list of all of them. I if i were to point out any of my favorite reads. He's probably my most favorite the fact that they actually cover just about anything and everything and actually has a search window that you can find specifically the type of niche that you want when you're promoting your book But you can take a look at those free ones and the premium ones I would recommend that if you do use these type of services that you spread it out. Don't try to load them up all in a single day because then you don't know what is most effective in what is going to be shifting the units for you and then you can duplicate it from that point forward so any rate. That's five good ways and i'm gonna give some final notes and some final thoughts here in just a moment before we do that. I wanna give a big special thanks to those of you that actually watch me over on the youtube. Podcast channel yes right. Not just the regular channel. There is a youtube podcast channel over daily dot com slash youtube. Podcast happen to be watching this right. Now drop me a comment definitely would love to hear from you.

After may the tenth may tenth will be the last which broadcast and at that point. We'll be moving over to youtube podcast permanently so i'm super excited and geeked up about that. All right file tip comes to marketing and promoting your kids book. Believe it or not. I spend about five hours talking about how he can market and promote believe it or not yet. It'd be listening to this. You probably saying that dale that seems like information that people can use for all books. You're right there's not too much different when it comes to doing children's books than does any of the other ones but just remember. Your audience is going to be a little bit more mixed. You've got parents and you got kids so test it out any of those marketing and promotion methods for yourself. Not everything is going to work for everyone. So these five methods one or two might work for you or maybe one or maybe none of them. Maybe you have something else that might work out for you. Find that one thing that starts to move the needle and selling more books and getting it to where there's more books and kids hands in double down on that method. I'm just giving you some ideas kind of greece the creative wheels and get you moving in the right direction. As a children's book author is up to you to take it from there.

Should Carlos Vela get special treatment from referees? Doyle & Warshaw on Week 14

"You're listening to extra time riven by continental. Oh my goodness. I mean what are we doing here? His foot. It's great that everyone can give their union. Absolutely ridiculous. Five me, five me. I don't care more to drain my Bank account, everybody up here every single day goes into the office into the laboratory try to cook them some great stuff you guys. That's why he's here from New York, New York. You are listening to extra time driven by continental from the AT and T studios in midtown Manhattan. I'm injure, we be with my partners in soccer only one of which is watching live soccer. That's Dave Goss just had out. You people know you twenty World Cup straight into the eyeballs chance at for the next four weeks. I could watch soccer continuously all day from morning to how do you feel about the fact that the African Cup of nations in the summer now as opposed to being in east to love? I don't feel good about it. But the fact that it's an Egypt gives me. Pretty you ever also the largest on jacking and person? That's what I just experienced taking it away. Just right, Afghan Doyle, Bobby were shy here. It's a special long Afghan. Previous. Yeah. That's exactly what I would do. This is not done. But we are hitting that break here six games this week mid week and the week. And then it's basically two and a half weeks as we OD on women's World Cup Gold Cup Copa America, Afghan twenty four seven soccer. It's a beautiful thing. The US played Jamaica on Wednesday, the US play Venezuela on Sunday clubbing country will be here for you on those. It's going to be a great summer of soccer. We also have fourteen recap coming right up. I'm gonna just say it right now. I'm an out myself. It was a weekend of yard, work, and very little else on my part. I grilled multiple times. I found a free chin- and the trash, it was time actually kinda flex to say, I live in New York, and I do yard work. Uh-huh. Pretty good. You've been there. The yard I would just say, everyone who lives in the bike yard, I don't have to shovel anymore. I don't have to do yard work, and we out here doing I am and mostly just as me pulling out, three inch pieces of glass. There's a lot of dirt back there on a green junkyard tire dish. I'm trying to dress it up back there before we get to the soccer and I know Bobby you're annoyed right now. But maybe I can impose on you and get a little bit of your expertise, which is interior decor. I feel as though are set doesn't reflect us feel as though this empty table, is just simply not good enough for extra time. I mean, look at it, it just if you're watching on YouTube, every single show, it just would grain here, but it's not real that reflects us do you think so? Oh, wow. Cheap cheap an empty, not something that we should we put anything on this. I want to put something, but I wanna get your thoughts because I'm not the only person that lives here. I'm down to put things. What are we going to? That's the question. I'm asking you. Oh you didn't. Have you thought you were asking Bobby, I am asking Bobby? But bobby's, you're sitting there at the look his fist? So here in Doyle say that makes me wish so bad that dole was single right now and on Tinder just so we could see what Doyle would put on his profile, and it would probably be my name is Matt cheapen empty that could be a good sell for you. How well. Wow. It's been too long for someone who doesn't like bits. It's a really long time to get. I'm not going to sell that one Bobby let us know. You think cinde stuff? Yes, I'm thinking about jumping on EBay and just rolling through this thing. Let's talk about soccer though. We hit a lot of different tangents, while I'm entertained, Bobby actually liked the tender joke. Think it works. Well, thanks. Ten talker. It's new. It's not cheap. It's providence park, twelve games on the road for the Portland timbers back. They didn't get a win. So my prediction for a whole lot of points for them got up to a little bit of Iraqi star, but it's all EMC, so everybody is on a rocky start with them before we get to the game before we get to Carlos Vela and how Bob Bradley thinks he should get better treatment from the referees because he got mauled in. Bob's words in this match. Let's just celebrate this thing because in twenty ten it was a baseball stadium like a true minor league baseball stadium in downtown Portland, which I assumed to be awesome in that interational. But in a matter of nine years, it's gone from that what we saw on Saturday night against L. See twenty five thousand two hundred eighteen seats a towering new presence on the east side of this thing. I don't know what we're calling it, but it needs a good nickname. It's got scuba goose's recalling soccer city USA, as scuba. I think we're going out scuba down with that eighty five million dollars, which is probably actually on the low side for what this all costs because it a new video board. A revamp. The whole thing I wanna take you back to be Moorefield and winning arrive. The Major League Soccer it was downtown people thought it was awesome. And it costs less than this addition to providence park. That's how far major league soccer's comeback for Scillies since you ever go to that original field, I did. And it was like a high school. It was a little bit. I thought it was awesome, awesome. My favorite stadium still empire field ever. Take it down. Yeah. Record set. Sweet. So I actually was a little skeptical about this, which is weird for me because normally I'm all on board anytime. There's new stadium of anything. When I saw the photos when I saw the rendering thought it looked funny. I thought I looked weird. I thought it would look out of place, this new stand at providence park. And so I was like I like it. It's cool. It's, it's a lot of money and it's going to be a good thing for those fans. But I'm not sure it fits and the game comes on and I'm blown away. Yeah. Like you put people in this Hoover thought you put people in the stadium. It's so vertical right? And having the roof on it as well. I think it holds the sound in better. Taylor twelve and Jon champion raving about that during the podcast or pockets during the broadcast. Everything's a pug, toast, right? And like you could sort of feel it through the screen. And I, I like that it looks different. I like that. You could see this is a this is a stadium, that's been built in stages, and it gives us some character. And it gives it a different feel than a lot of what you see elsewhere in the world. I think the great job and I think it's gonna matter during the second half of the season. They already have a great home field advantage in Portland. You saw it come alive in the second half. I think it's gonna be miserable place to play that team part of the beauty I think, is that it is sort of mismatch. It's bad a different things. It has a history. It was one thing became another. They were able to engineer it, and design it in a way that still feels like it fits, but we should have feels different. We should have a little replicas of all the soccer specific. See seems gonna Frisian a lot of them have been made. We'll go for some favors around call, but I think it's I haven't been there as I've said many times, this is basically just my Gillian on the show. Jason guinea. Well, good friend, Jillian, right after this on the call up talking about it. They push pull some you can pull some kick you off. That's fine. Look at it Bobby he's not even on the show. Are you waiting for? Before we before we came on the show, you had thoughts about probably any thoughts, but he was easy because I said, them all and then Doyle, so to say, no, it's exactly what the city needed needed something else on that farside to kind of balance out, one of the sides of the stadium. Then you've got timbers army behind the goal, which goes back farther than any supporters section you'll see MLS. It's unique in the way, the noise comes out of that, and the way it's set up and then you've got the wall on the other side of the stadium, which makes no sense, which, again is why it's school. It's very Portland, like it's on a huge city. Everything has the fit in where it fits in everyone, there loves the culture that they have, and I think the stadium, fits very well, and when the fans come in, as you said, they make it their own, and it's fun to be around when I went last year for the playoffs. You could see, like someone said to you. Hey, we're going to build that stand up higher and put a refunding like that's the one thing I would add to the stadium, that's exactly what it needs. Now it has that and it's one of the best atmosphere is in the league announced atmospheres in the league. But we're lucky to have it, congratulations, rose city onward, as the say, also. I of like that actually, I think they put nineteen thousand their for their wwl game on pretty cool. Soccer culture. Yeah. That's part of it for me is if I go to home games, king, we have in the mail back do. Yeah. Bobby, we have something for you. Now you can talk about the game. It was a three two win. Filiasi was not the result that the timbers wanted in their party LLC crash that thing that happens if you give the ball wide open via the goalkeeper sorry, Jeff at Ella was not a shining moment for you. But. It'll be better. It feels like we've talked about LLC a lot. And we've talked about Portland, a lot to me. The main takeaway from this game was the Carlos Vela Fallon wasn't it? And the fact that he got taken down four five six times and eight times eight times total. And then Bob rallies comments calling out those fouls after the game. Let's get those comments by the way because Bob Bradley went back to the treasure trove. He is a machine right? Do you think Barcelona's his favorite team? I think they might be, let's listen to what he had to say about those files when, when's the last time you're so messy, get mauled? The way Carlos got molten on. I don't think I've ever seen a game where messy gut more like that, right? And in the end, if I don't say that the sad thing is nobody else will write it. So we're going to talk about it Bob, and I think he's sending a message, not just to Carlos Vela saying, hey, I got your back. I'm gonna protect you but to every single referee and pro through the rest of the year saying give my guy I call it special treatment in our special treatment. No, it's not. It's not asking for special treatment for Carlos Vela, but it should be, and we'll get there. It should be. I think one of my hobby horses over the years has been president Matt. I think that at times pretty often actually MLS officials have not enforced it. And, you know, we Carlos Vela he gets fouled pretty brutally two three times the fourth time no matter who it is that should be yellowcard. And it's not just Carlos Vela if it's Latif blessing getting, like that, if it's Diego Valera getting filed like that, if it's a centreback getting filed like that you have to enforce persistent infringement it makes the game better. And I don't think they've done a good enough job with that with players like Vella and puzzle. Alot in a few others this season. Also, it's not an MLS thing this world soccer, it will never be a second yellow, too. Yeah. It would never be a second. I've never seen a persistent infringement second yellow, given which rises me, which is basically like I'm going to warn you but it's not gonna go that bad like you can continue to do this not. Yeah. You create not yet. I mean they were talking about right now is not yet, but it needs to go in that direction because I think the important takeaway from this, if you were mad if he Portland timbers if you're Toronto fan who is mad at teams for kicking posso you should not be mad at the players. The players are given a paycheck, they are given a referendum to win games. And to do it within the rules. It is the referees job to enforce. And sometimes even decide what the rules are in that moment. In referees need to take a better measure at understanding what they need to do to protect any player without added this mad is especially players like Carlos veil. The bottom line is sports now more than ever are about stars. I have no problem saying that Carlos Vela in agnosio body, and people are going, and I'll hundred as well should be given a special set of rules because sports or set up for the view in pleasure, though, stars provide more of you in pleasure. And I have no problem saying, protect Carlos Vela more than you, protect Mark, Anthony k that's Mon, personal opinion. But referencing do better job doing with everyone and ESP. Especially sery- statement of what you're making though, because no one else is getting fouled away. Those players you're was the Michael Jordan rule. You didn't have to create a special rule to protect Michael Jordan, because he was the only one getting hack that way because he's only one good enough. And he's the only one necessary. Here's the thing. If Mark Anthony k gets fouled five times your point is at the referee will never give red card for the second time for a second yellow card for persistent Frenchmen. I think we generally agree, if Mark Anthony k is getting that many times, maybe you don't give a second yellow for persistent fringe on Mark. Anthony, we agree with the present and the future use of that rule. But you cannot do it that way with Carlos villa because it will continue to Carlos Val. He will get hurt and it ruins the viewing pleasure when Carlos Vale is out of a game. And I, I don't more than if Mark Anthony k is out of a game, we can agree with that you need to change the zone. I refused to look at it from that cold and calculating, business perspective, our listeners should understand, Bobby, was professional soccer player. He was a defensive midfielder mostly. He wasn't enforcer. He knows how these things go. So remember that perspective, but for me, I'm just talking about the integrity of the competition. Whether it's Valla whether it's Mark, Anthony k whether it's Bill to Aloma getting hacked by I don't know. Dominy Amande say persistent infringement is a thing has to be enforced. I thought also some of those files that Portland players committed the one Jordan, Harvey studs up in the in the ankle like these weren't cards. If not outright, red, and I still remember twenty eleven when in the span of a couple of months we lost Steve Zakarani, Davi, Ferrara, Javier, Morales in Bronco. Boskovich on terrible. Challenges terrible challenges in it ruined that season and I fear after seeing, you know seeing the game play out the way it did a little bit worried that we could be entering back into similar era. It's not the southern. Fouls, by the way that are like, hey, I'm muscling out the ball. I'm trying to win this ball. It's the foul really is unprotected. And you're coming through the back him for no other reason, Carlin, or anyone anyone or anyone. But the problem is the majority of these tackles, come on players, like the Carla's Velez died or Boskovic, or whatever, you might call the world. And by the way, we are missing Peoria Guay, and it is a tragedy, but I don't think that has anything to tax. No. The Piazza was absolutely a tackle the like I was a Christian Gita just stepped right on his ankle late. It's like these beyond is one of the best players in the league, and we're maybe not going to get to see him more than a half dozen games this point landed Bob. That's what we're saying right now. L N the United they were bad now. They're good. Oh can we also say the you said it was the only thing that came out of this game. Can I add something one final David mentioned that it is part of the world game? You even look at a man city. Fouling a key part of men cities approach. They do. So I just wanna point out this is not uniquely. MLS. No, Chelsea champions, moving. Thank you. You said one thing the other thing that came out was is Andy polo, a starter for the Portland timbers, especially if they're at home above sea comes off the bench and gives them a boost, but played in a two forward setup with polo playing in centre midfield. I've parenthesis very good. I would like to see bovi star infra news on the way, so I understand. You know, I wonder where is on them? I'm a huge no above had been slumping for for two. You're playing L AFC. So I understand if Tang the reason that's I understand wanting the extra midfielder out, but the question is going forward. Welling Mantas basis, going act, license fact, it's going to have to be game by game and I agree with you. I think in the end is going to end up being Fernandez as goalscoring winger and Bovis is a centre forward. I think that will work out better long-term, but Germany publishes kind of back square one, he's gotta prove it's again that he should be a starter. How should severance approach that decision came to give because my gut, and to go kind of back to the star quality aspect of it? My gut says to me, you do it in whatever way gets the best outta brand for nibs. Yeah, that's ever, it is. That gets the best out of him that doesn't like completely kill your midfield cohesion and your Billy defend. You do whatever that is because he will be the difference maker for you. And then you let Blanco Valeri fill in. As they may. Because they know how to do we've talked about how these stretch of home game. Seventeen home games now to finish the year with some game sprinkle in isn't advantage. And I think we all agree overall. It's an advantage. But I also think it offers a unique problem, I would point to the lineup he played with Modell and via Fanja and polo and said of Valentin Bovici that to me is going for it lineup when you play in front of that crowd at providence park, now you're going to play you're going for it. Your best overall maximum potential lineup because that's what you need to serve and feed the home fans, but also safe to say what Matt's, it is true that, that might not be there optimal lineup especially against all opposition. So I just wonder while they have the home field advantage, how much of that creates a problem that you say doesn't have an obvious answer to, to maximize their ability, interesting. We'll see a lot of home games. Sixteen more. They gotta win a whole lot of those to keep climbing. The table in eleventh right now or the Portland timbers, but as he said, you're call him out. I don't think we expect them. To be their operating three team in the west. I think it's to be on it. You know, put the be on. No, no. You're just gonna say, no beyond erect. L any United top team in the east. We agree about that is that, that canon now cheap an empty back to it cheap an empty well they were exciting about his. About his. He was saying, put the be on it. And I was like, what is the B is that how did I miss that? I don't know how miss the trash fire that has been. Yeah. Atlanta United twenty six points to back the Philadelphia union. They started the season quite poorly. They gotta stick for Frank to bore people were yelling for his head at least some of the less logical people on Twitter that might be look eighteen points from twenty four eight games in twenty days two straight losses. That was not great. But ultimately, they did what they had to do outside of that rebels and at oursel- notwithstanding. Justin Martinez back. He's not just scoring as you wrote Matt. He's kind of running things but wasn't his usage is thirty year over year, which is interesting. But what's more interesting to me is that this was the team that everybody watched every week because they wanted to see him in the open field. And they were so exciting from attacking perspective. And now that the best defensive team in the league and that strikes me as a difficult thing to do in a matter of months. Yeah. I mean it's not like they were bad defensive team. They, they gave I think forty. Goals in twenty eight teen and maybe even fewer than that in twenty seventeen. So they, they were really good under Totta. They sacrificed, some of that, to be the freewheeling free-flowing open team until last year's playoffs and remember last year's playoffs. They didn't give up an open play goal. So this does feel like a continuation of that. And then it's I mean frankly, it's boosted by miles Robinson mouse Robinson from a little use sub, maybe four hundred minutes last year. And then one game in the playoffs was pretty good to, you know one of the top five center backs in the league. And so when you have a guy like Robinson, and Gonzalo pure as the Ramadi whose maybe the most underrated defensive Michler league in front of them, you're not going to give up a lot of goals adding sixty percent possession on top of it. I don't love the way they're playing in possession that what they did against Chicago was probably their most impressive, in terms of turning possession interpenetration, but they have they have the talent to just brute force Andrew, I need to make this point, because I don't think we talked about it often enough this year we have talked about the free William Atlanta United of the past twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen but we forget the top Martino explicitly, what hundred percent threw in the towel and said that's not going to get done. The key literally in the playoffs everything they had built for two years. He wrapped it up in a paper bag and he threw it in the trash because it was not the right game plan to championship. So all of the, the member of yesteryear, and how great it was. We also have to have the caveat that even Martinez like yeah. This ain't it. So there was some need to adjust and it was nice that there's thirty four games of the free will in Atlanta United before the five games in the playoffs, and they set deepen kipton long. But I just want us to remember that part, the Martino is like. Yeah. At the same time to bores sitting deepen in kicking it long just wanna say that the need to adjust the need to do something different to win a trophy. They didn't do with Barco here. Joseph Martinez has changed. Franked abort says it takes six six months. Use me for teams understand system. They're looking for a starter in the summer people feel like this team has already loaded maybe Barco, get sold after you twenty World Cup. If you have to see just people, the report is that the, the sell on fee for Barco is thirty percent if they sell him before the end of the year after January, first drops to ten percent I think it was reported in the letter that those are the numbers, that's a big difference if you're talking about selling a guy for fifteen or twenty million dollars thirty percent as like you're talking to three million dollar difference. That's do you think Ellen? United recoup their investment on his job ARCO win, if they sell them. I'm bringing this straight out of the group chat. We discussed this one. We were split. I don't think I had a strong. I think they will come close because I think that he's won a player that a lot of people do. Right. Even though sometimes we watch him week to week and wonder about him. He's. Young. He has really impressive experience again couples who make on and in the Argentine league, even if it wasn't for a prolonged, period, again, he was a teenager and he's gonna to yeah he's an MLS Cup champion. Yeah, yes. I would come close I already said, yes. As well. Also think they sell him at an agent fees. Right. There's fifteen million plus agent fees, plus signing bonus plus a ten percent. So they've got to sell them for eighteen to twenty I think they will. I also think that he's just he's Argentine. He's the next Argentine thing, and there are teams around the world, that don't maybe do all the research they should be doing all the time and are willing to sign that player because they want that in their hold on. Hold on, don't I want to get real quick to we think that this guy could be question worth questions. That question maybe is twenty million. What we saying euros dollar someone picking say dollars. Okay, twenty million dollars worth a listen. Let's say Canadians Moonies all then it would be way last. That's like fifteen. Million dollars at that point. He's got the conversion rate if they bad. Offing Toronto trips and back and forth Pearson, Bishop actually love my based, I would just say that there are teams around the world that will pay for that, and that want that in their team, whether it's because they're trying to break, let's talk about east Milan. Right. It that isn't number one option for a lot of players. Oh, we get the Argentine. He's the next messy. He's the next pick your other on hell de Maria. Not that he's either of those guys as a player, and we'll pay that amount of money because we can't get Ozil to come to our team right now we can't get at in has to come to our team. So we'll pay that amount of money because it's worth it for us to show our fan base, where serious to move into the next realm of our club. There's a certain Brazilian striker. They bought after you twenty road Cup today. Similar remember back in the doc band in the duck not Argentine. I said, Brazilian still the same still the same sort of cachet with the name value, their divorce said they're gonna look for a starter in the summer where would you look left back left back? It's what I soon. Right. Michael parker. Has been filling in Mike embrose had a few games breakfast experiment did not work George bellows been hurt. Didn't look for it the, the first couple of games of the year when when he got a little bit. Iran is only sixteen seventeen as well. Leftback seems a lot of teams might said that as well, by the way. It was all his right in the Eastern Conference, though. We're talking land United up there red bulls or climbing as well. They knocked down our cell too bad rogue games for our so and by the way, there's some news breaking right now, which is Omar Gonzalez is headed to Toronto, FC, pending medical and IT. We'll talk about that in a second red bull's, it's back to what they did before. Sarma said, we only talked about when they were doing badly, while they're doing well, and we should talk about them. What are we what are we talking about? Is it is it more of the same? I was doing yard work. So I missed that for. Oh, I have no idea. It was emphatic. It was their best performance of the season. Granted it was against our team that was missing Albert Rouge Nak and did not play. But I would consider their best centreback pairing. Also play in Montreal on Wednesday. And also were on short rest also rotated their fullbacks a little bit, a lot of caveats in this one, but the rebels awesome in the second half and then look good for the full ninety really Kako looks up for it. He makes a difference when he's playing like this. And then the other thing is. Chris Armas talked about passing and the style that they want. They can't just be press press press. And if you look at the red bulls year ago at this time, they, they almost didn't they didn't care about completing passes. They wanna play direct get into these hacking third and turn it into a game of winning fifty fifties and they were amazingly good at it. They still press, but in a more traditional way, and we saw that this was a high pressing performance from the rebels. But when they get on the ball back to hitting those third line passes to playing two feet in the pockets, turn and go, which is much more of what the rebels were. I think twenty fifteen sixteen and into twenty seventeen is the Brad really right Phillips era over like I asked questions as I'm listening to you talk about this. I'm thinking about what made them special so many times I show the attacking since he got twenty goals. And now you're looking at an unused sub DNP list. He's hurt I. No, I know. But like he's age where you could get hurt just kind of feels like the pages, even like starting to turn and your forget or for he was hurt he had one goal in seventeen games. I know I, I mean I just I wonder about the it might be. I wonder if he has a second career with the rebels number ten in behind the striker. They decide Brian. Right. And Barlow are the right guys up top that, that Kaku is going to be on the field but they love wheel. Do they love ROY outlined? Maybe Kaku goes there. So I'm gonna keep an eye on, whether he actually becomes the second Stryker taking the place of one of the two wingers, who they just haven't it hasn't felt like they've been convinced by those guys over the last year and a half centrebacks in Toronto have would be shocking, by the of or something Harvey on heartbeats. I'm gonna talk about that news. Would be what miss something we're heartbeat. When I'm talking about the red bulls and you talking about Bradley Wright Phillips. Well, are they going to trade him as anybody to take him probably not? You know. No. Okay. That's true. Maybe Philadelphia decides need goals. Maybe. Got such fair and guys like it's possible, but I think it's more likely Bradley, right? Stays brother Philip stays with them than we're going to line-up. He probably doesn't go back up center. Straighter think he's played in behind the striker and Champions League before it doesn't feel like they love their options at winger when it come and you say, in behind the striker you say where meal and Ryan play not mkaku will. Yeah, we're Kaku plays than Kaku goes wide. So I'm just gonna keep an eye on that. How do they how do they handle the situation? I think maybe they try give them position change. I think it'd be really interesting. That'd be fun to watch. Omar gonzales. Can he fix the Toronto? See defense. He's headed from atlas not been convincing. Let's say from the reds backline here, one, one draw with Toronto, but they do that lay me Vancouver on Friday night, but they got it lay. Nick deleo and kind of like, deflected snuck its way through thank Hoover. Not super convincing. But that's kind of been the case for them for a while. Now, I think the their two ways to look at it with Elmar I is that he kinda hasn't been the same guy since the twenty seven CONCACAF Champions League. He was really good for in that tournament. But in the two years since he's, he's kinda, I don't wanna say nose-dived, but he, he hasn't been the same guy feet are moving a little bit slow all the stuff that made him. So good for almost a decade almost all of its gone. But like all the is like five percent missing. That's the way the first way, looking at second way, looking at it is in MLS, if you can. Get an experienced quality thirty year old centreback. You do it, some might call it the Chad Marshall, theorem the Chad Marshall Jad Marshall, drew more. So hat's true or had like four good years after he turned thirty percent Aiko power. I mean he struggled Wednesday. But if it wasn't for I go par yesterday Phillies course. Seven like these guys like it tends to be a pretty good bet. So I understand. Absolutely. Why Toronto FC are doing my thing, though, is Chad Marshall, and especially I co- par not especially, but also I ca- par those guys were also off the charts athletes, and it didn't go away as they got older. I mean Marshall until he got hurt, basically Jew more wasn't that guy. Isn't that guy? And I don't know that Omar has the same thought that he had when he was with the galaxy, and then what you're saying peeking over the last four or five years. So my question is, can he be the drew more? Can you be a guy who can win games because he can read the game quicker because he has experience in the? Big moments. And I think right now seem on moving are both struggling having it on their shoulders of reading the game. I do. I totally agree on has not coped with his own laws of athleticism. If you remember in twenty fifteen twenty sixteen he was the most active centreback in the league, he would come running off the line making plays in midfield. He's lost half step. And because of that, he's no longer affective. Emily's defend. Is there a little bit of an Iranian Kalinin in that sense, because you remember when Clinton was that guy? Yeah. And then he's been reserved for the last three four seasons because all of his marauding no longer was affective. I mean that, that's the thing. But Omar was never really that guy. He was his pretty active but he wasn't the you know, he wasn't like a call on or, or so what's best case scenario here. Like what's best case best case scenario is that he's like one of the six or seven best centrebacks in the league, but he hasn't looked like that the last couple of years. I still think that Toronto with Bradley Puello Josie Nuff, Omar comes back ready and Mavinga. Who's this few games this year has shown that he's one of the best centreback in the league drew more has been fit just Moro's been great. I still think that it's Toronto red bulls. Atlanta are the three teams to be. And I know Philadelphia's been great. I know NYC has only lost once, but I don't know how you don't look at that Toronto team with everyone healthy and said, that is one of the just the thing, everything, healthy, everyone healthy is, of course, big worry, if especially moving name off injured this weekend Jozies about to play a summer tournament for the US and we know what happens every time with that. Michael, Bradley's missed the last couple of games. He's about to turn thirty two lot. If stare for me that poison chalice babies irresistible with Toronto's stuff and his played his last MLS game, at least for now headed to Manchester City or on loan. We're not yet. Sure, what he's going to do. But I want to jump into his legacy as short as it might be goalkeeper of the year guy who. Had some heroics in the playoffs. Someone who went to Europe came back pushed his way in what is Stephen's MLS legacy. What are you gonna remember about his time, a major? What did he teach? Us injure. I think about them two ways as a player. I think he's a great example of trying something. It not working out. Call it failing, if you want coming back, starting from ground zero. He was a US L goalkeeper for half a year. So I think he came right back. It was a starter for Gregg Berhalter in Columbus. He had to go to the Pittsburgh river hounds and play in. US. L. All people track that on the oranges. I think. Big big Pittsburgh, river hounds guy. But how many players have gone from the river hounds two? Now, the number one in the US depth chart in their career, and also, Manchester City. It's it's and that's the point. He's from the river hounds to MLS you fight your way back. You prove yourself, and now you actually take a jump above where you were. When originally didn't work out, a great example, and something for all players to remember that. It's okay. You can take a step back and still make it forward. And the second thing is even though he was a goalkeeper. You don't often get to use this word of goalkeepers, he was thrilling to watch. He was exciting, whether it was the shot stopping the PK saves are just plain out of the back with the ball feet and his ability to pass and really combine as a goalkeeper with his centrebacks with his central midfielders really set Zach Steph apart. And just the ability to watch him play position in the enjoyment factor. So it's not just now watching him on low in Bristol City and saying, oh, wow in less sent this player here. He's the number one for the US at least could be what does this mean for the US this moves Steph in? What's his are quasi going? What will he be? What, what does he need? Yeah. Doesn't mean anything, if he ends up sitting on the bench for the next five years he needs to win a starting job. Somewhere. I not sure he can do it with Manchester City but Manchester City buys a million players loans amount. And eventually, they tend to find fulltime jobs elsewhere, I think I'll end up being primarily goalkeeper I, I think he can be a starter. I think he is that good. I do worry a little bit about his health. He's missed some games and Stephan seems to be the type of guy where if he's one hundred percent he's a thousand percent, but if he's anything less than that his game, really suffers. And we've seen that this year. He has not been the same guy since late March first four weeks of the season. He was spectacular. He has not been that guy since then. So I look a lot of things still have to go right. But there's a reason they spent what seven eight nine million dollars. Whatever it was. There's a reason why they did that and fingers crossed that they were right to spend them last little, as you can pour out for Philadelphia union on all of that money because they had him in their system. Look, if you can get right by Bali you got. Do the goalkeeper position poorly. But also one last little pieces. Bobby said he came from US L could have been in US L, if it was two or three years later, he would have been on the Bethlehem Steel that didn't exist at the time he was in the academy, if he was going to sit on the bench and MLS who's going go on the bench and Jeremy wasn't what? Not no, like move on. Okay. We're moving on. Bruce Arena back to basics. He's on the sideline. He waffled a little bit willy while he at. Divvy house sports park in LA? He's been there before he's won a lot of games couple months cups. He decided he would walk the sidelines with the revs for the first time. And the revs got another result to winning the galaxy slot on how to go away on its arguably gonna you might it might be the goal of the season. No, it wasn't even the goal of the week. You don't think so. We'll Johnson the goal of the week. Oh, interesting. Okay. I was the build up to that. But it wasn't. Well, Jon Landau. Yeah, come on. But that's not going to go into goal of the year. I mean it should that's the goal of the season. Okay. Evan push into a play. We won't we won't belabor that point. But they gotta win in LA. Yeah. So if I was arrested, do this first thing I would say that was fun. It was fun to watch. The team was enjoyable. They played with a little of aggression. They put out a bunch of fast players. I think the word to use less. We're tempted to effervescence a little sparkle at home. And you went home and breath practice slid off the tongue to easily. That's how I describe my wines, there, Vasant I thought it was fun. So I enjoyed watching it as a neutral, Safai was a fan of the Rams. That's where I would start with the other parts were like one Goodell center. Mid now, which I thought was fascinating watching this game. And what if the way you get one Goodell to dial in and take every moment? Seriously and planned his best is to give him the most responsibility ever and Bruce Arena in twenty nineteen unlocks Delo and the world's greatest box. What are you doing? You just. Yeah. Brucie's now. To. I love the box box part makes me so happy because the left back joke has been used a lot because I do a lot of players, get moved leftback will be totally honest with you, I think even more players, get you get moved to box box think Sasha question should have been a box midfielder throughout his crashing leaving win. I know except for when he went down with red bulls. And then since title back to back the first player ever do that. I can play. He wanted to no. Now he ever stop to have. He was not a box saying he was he was attend. And he won the assists title backed back the first player in a ministry do that the only player the only player besides Val Rama to have one this season. And fine. Listen, he was a good one. A good number ten, I'm telling you would bed Kurt better career, and the team would have been better with him a box box. Benny fell hover would have had a better career in. His team's been better with him as box box Lee win. Same thing that we as American fans. See these players a little bit of skill and we're automatic rush to find our number ten are our savior of the sport. The guy that's going to wear that jersey of the guy that's gonna play chip balls and through and bicycle kicks because that player is a little bit of skill when really they can have their maximum impact on the game. If they were getting on the ball, more often, and facilitated I don't understand why we won a number ten to save us. And then we get mad while we can't keep session. Well, maybe if we actually put are more skilled players as the players possession, then we would actually get one of those twenty six years old. We he's. He's going to Qatar as a box to box midfielder. We have found the way to unlock one acapella Bruce Arena. Thank you, sir. They're playing little different though. Bobby walk us through that. I enjoyed your passion. So I wanna keep rolling here. We'll the big thing to look at is where they defend where they draw their line of confrontation. I think it's born to say line of confrontation necessarily where they start because even when they were pressing under Brad Friedel. They would start somewhere on the center circle and then sprint at you. But now the line of confrontation, which essentially means where do you start to defend where do you what pressure on the ball after that opposition crosses, you might say thirty yards from your from their goal? Meaning one they crossed thirty yards from their own goal. You go and put pressure you might say midfield. They have dropped that line of confrontation, which in layman's terms as they aren't a pressing team. If you look at their numbers, they used to be the team that won the ball in the attacking third, the most under Brad Friedel. They won the ball in their defense. If they're the least under Brad Friedel now there somewhere in the middle on both of those things because they've dropped the line of confrontation to what I would say just made them generally a nor. Team. They do it. Normal teams. Do they defend normal places that if in normal ways knowing they win it because they do have talented players? They're getting forward quicker. There's this weird thing Brad Friedel this year where simultaneously oppressing team. Carla hill, possession Bill, try and move the ball team. And among other things that general tactical plan wasn't working now they're little more solid defensively. But also just a little quicker and transition Carlos he'll off. He was really good. And I think he. There was a lot of pieces out there that pineal you know, he's going to stay while you know what he's going to do forgiveness floats in and out a little bit. But I think he'll had a structure in which it was like now, I know where pieces are so I can find the game where I want to, and he looked at the most comfortable and the whole front four or five whatever you wanna call them. Looked really good on the flip side for the galaxy four weeks ago all they did was balls wide and whipping crosses, and this game they played super Naro, and they had stares at right back, which was a train wreck because pinta was wide open every time they picked up his action, but I would wonder if doin Jones and Brandon by can defend one v one consistently in a ninety minute game. If you actually put them under pressure, and I'm a pretty big fan, Brandon by and I liked that they picked him up and put them fullback, but he's new to the position Jones played like three times in his career. So the galaxy I don't think took advantage of the issues that could be presented by this, this lineup for the revs. But for Bruce you roll it out. First time no one's ever seen it before. They don't know how to react. They don't know what to do and it worked perfectly anyone put a beyond this playoffs and. The reds. No, no couldn't can suck anybody into that. No, too early to points out man. Unless for Eastern Conference for some other news with the revs, though, current also hired as technical director, you probably heard it was coming. Richie Williams, isn't coach gangs getting back together. How should we maybe expect this to work? How might it work? Well, it's interesting that they use the term technical director on him. And I do think it's confusing at times when teams give these, these labels these names of the jobs because they're always different for every team the way I think you should think about it is, there are x number of things that a front office needs to do. Call it five or ten meaning the super draft signing free agents signing international players managing your Tamin GAM doing contracts with players when they actually agree to sign with you. These all these different assignments and you divvied up, however you want for the most part. Now when you look around Major League Soccer the technical director is in charge of domestic decisions, the super draft free agents signing players who trades. Entry draft. So when you think about Kurt an office job he is probably not going to be the one to go on the next Miguel Marrone. He is going to be the one to manage the domestic decisions somewhere to what Chris alright doesn't Philadelphia or a Luksa Asano, dozen Cincinnati, lots of get done in the revs though. But we're on board the car auto Rapids bandwagon for certain Colorado. Exactly. Just give us a bunch of burgundy here on the front table and I'll be in for a mug. I look over from Reveiz Rava bobby's over here taking off his headset. I thought he was actually taking his shirt off to reveal his Jack price, jersey honestly, believing in jersey now transitioned FC Cincinnati or not played well are not going well for teams in Ohio grant you that eight losses in nine for them. They're basically following up on crissy's form. But by God eleven weeks of misery gets you four straight results. And it's a beautiful thing. I'm just here because I'm happy for any. In all people. There are a lot of them it seems pack in the stadium, dick sporting goods park, and once guys what is now a team that has some hope and they did not have hope all this stuff that we said about the revs how they're playing dropping the line of confrontation playing a little quicker from back to front. Not really carrying that much about possession, that applies to the is, and they KYW has been the centre forward who comes back and the defense comes with Chi when he comes back and checks back into the play. And that always opens up space in behind and players, like Nicholson Jonathan Lewis under Shinya Sheikhi, who's great this week, though the wingers those guys are exploiting that space and then central midfield, they have three guys who aren't playmakers but can all pass in kellyn Acosta. Jack price and co Bassett he's been pretty nice so far this year. So that's it. It's not complex. They're just keeping it low. They're keeping it tight getting on the run. They score. Twelve goals in six games. Conor. Casey six of them have been offset pieces five have been off the counter and they got one the game winner. This week off a little bit of pressure. That's a little detailed Atta that about the wingers. They always run behind. They always adult times the Colorado Rapids. Have someone running directly goal? Doesn't it feel like you watch game so often, and there's ten players checking to the ball, nobody doing a direct threat. Nobody stretching the defense. The Rapids never have that problem. It's very clear. There's always somebody running behind on a macro scale, and I find interesting about the revs, and Colorado is that it is possible to play in a maybe we're used the word defensive mindset, but still be fun. You can play in this way and still be great to watch. If you do it in the right way, if you had the right players about movement off the ball. Right. But it's like if you look at so many teams who are like, we're just, just trying to, you know, keep this close and take too many risks it ends up being so static off the ball and the resolute, especially in the rapid so far in their Conor, Casey. They haven't been static off the ball at all. And at all. That feels like a really important distinction to me. Because so many teams are scared to play that way because of the ascetics as they should you're trying to put out an entertainment product, but it's possible to do it in a intelligent way that maximize your team's chances of winning, but also be fun. You don't have to sacrifice anything, if you do it in the right process, I have a friend, who's a season ticket holder. He was having fun at the game before wasn't having fun with the soccer. He's texting after all these games sin. Yeah. That was fun. The people in my section. They were into it, and it doesn't have to be the quote Rapids way that we put an editorial in the paper about effective is going to win the energies infectious where you were saying move enough its energy. Right. It's like a desire to play even if it's defensive, it's closing down quickly. It's being, you know the first two that fifty fifty ball in like that sixty percent of the battle, it feels like sometimes teams that do sit back. They can't have that mentality. Yeah. And I don't know what it is. And I think it's different with different teams. And we've thinking conviction I think that imagine that kind of Casey, I if I was a. Interim head coach taking over. I think it would probably just simplify everything and then be like, let's not worry about, you know, steps. X Y Z. Let's get ABC indeed. Right. So that everything becomes so simple with your on off the ball and you know what if you lose it? It's okay. We got seven guys back. Let's try it all over again. And maybe this time Nicholson gets behind, and then we're off to the races. That's fine. One little piece on the macro level is normally this is not sustainable to be good team in Major League Soccer because you have to be doing able to do something else. And everyone else is gonna scout you and watch you and get ready for it. So it's fun. And also, when you lose a coach, a lot of time team's been bad. So everyone's happy because things have changed, and things are good. It's not a fix so it has to be understood that you wanna win games. What the front offices of those two teams obviously New England's a little different because it's Bruce, they need to figure out how to change it Bobby puzzled right now. What do you mean? It's not sustainable. What? How does differ than with the Portland timbers? Didn't Twenty-eight, teen lead literature? Did it hit a wall? No. But they don't their heads off Yego Valeri Sebastian Blanco Diego. That's fair. You could say that maybe you have to have certain, you can even add, you have to have a certain amount of talent. But I don't wanna say it's not sustainable. You might need certain players make it sustainable. But the general approach in itself is sustainable to ride Emlyn before we move on is a good timing for these teams that they've got that little like the momentum, the belief the conviction right before break. Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I think it's a good thing for New England because they have this confidence going into the break, and it's gonna give Bruce the chance to knit this locker room together even more than already, obviously has been, you know, in the past few games while implementing maybe a few wrinkles, BRUCE'S, not a big wrinkles guy, but he's probably do finishing jails. Yeah. Probably finishing gills Colorado. It's a little trickier, because they still don't have an official head coach. So what happens? If in the middle of this break, you get a head coach does that mean what what we've seen the last four six weeks. Get squandered I it's it's tough. It's a tough situation for the Rapids, regardless. So I think Conor case he's done a very good job. So this weekend, guess who's hosting Minnesota? It's Colorado that could be a win for them. Minnesota on the roads, not great, Minnesota home first loss at all eons field Philadelphia union after a tough stretch at home. Went on the road gotta done three to Darwin concerto. Had I don't want to call it a sitter because there there's a goalkeeper in front of him. There's another player. There's a little bit of pressure had some opportunities in this game isn't scored in what two months about two months. This was last year. A guy that every single show, it seemed like mid to late summer, we were saying this is arguably the best player in Major League Soccer Minnesota need him to be thing that was all onboard. I'm COPA Medica guy. You know, our, our friend, rich or more of a more like Crohn's star. Best ira. Yes. What, what happened here is there something off with Darwin concerto. He should be the loons best player, but he doesn't appear to be what do you. They need him to be. I don't have a great answer pointing to you guys because I don't have a great answer either. If I were to do this in the most generic way possible say that on Rodriguez is coming to the team, he starting Darwin was crushing it. Ramiro Barra was up top bars movement in the way, he played Darwin seem to connect better with concerto that onslaught. But at the same time, if I think about the logic of Oslo stretching the field doing hold up play for Darwin. I would also think that, that should work for a player like contro-. So I have a great answer. Why he's not playing well except to echo excuse me. What monologue? Oh, said is this happens the players like him it happens? It happens to Jefferson, Severino. Everyone non Carlos villa, this happened even having Carlos village as as career where they're incredibly hot and they're not. And then it comes again. And this is what you get. When you sign mercurial attackers you talked about called merica you talked about Santos he didn't play in the middle of the field. He played out wide any came in and attacked. And I think that changes the load on your body, and I think it changes how you can, you know, manage the game in the way you want to. And now he's essential attacking player. And everyone's fouling him and everyone's around him, and he has to be involved, constantly me has to help defensively, more. So that could be part of this is just he came in. He was excited. He wanted to be the center of everything he scoring goals, and then as things slow down, and it starts to wear on his body. He might not be capable of this, and everyone that Bobby just named plays on the wing. Colonels fell right now plays on the wing. So there might be a spot where you try and push him out wide a little and just get some make it a little easier for him to see if you can get him back into his own. You said, Darwin Kandara came in, in this game he came out in the ninth minute twenty minutes left in this game at home. They were down a gold time chasing. A result generating tons of chances. I mean, that old sub is a bold sub the bowl, Kevin. We should add Kevin Malino score the player. Yeah. On for lily, scored the equaliser, but contended not. And he might be a big piece of getting concerto back to where he wants to be. Which is if Molyneaux can take some of the pressure off. This is a I mean, that was that was a bold sub for Mejia. Heath, I opening three to union obligatory union conversation right now. Austin trustee goalscorer. Yeah. That was that was filth Cullman afterwards. One of the few to speak took took what he needed to. They're saying, like, why am I heading the ball when it's at shin level? Awesome trustee dives in scores. A beautiful goal. Anything from the union. They're they're at the top of the union is funny, it's just a funny game because the last three games. I thought they were the better team each time out at home two of those games. You would've looked at and said, yeah, they should win those. Absolutely. And they came away with two draws in a loss in three home games. They go to this game. They probably were not the better team. They created some really, really good chances, and they finished three of them. So they got the w but even Allah hydro Doyle was tweeting after the game. Like they didn't even deserve to win this one but we got it. It's a strange game. I think that this is in years past this union team would a lost his game four to two and we would be talking about how they're good month and a half or two months was just a Mirage and they're not gonna hold up for the rest of the air. But I like I still have all my Philadelphia union stock. I would love to have a running update of your stock resort. Folio. The word got in early on that Jackson, you'll stock by US national team. Midfielder, Jackson, you'll use national team midfielder Jonathan Lewis, I'm sitting pretty oh yeah. He's just going through the bitcoin voice hits during cups fun because you get to go do amateur teams in professional and look at former Doyle stock high. I have a lot of times are the sun. Best soccer soldiers Sabella valley a little bit. Look, there's a lot of stock in the U twenty road. Cub fans trying to figure out where guys stand against the rest of the world while stand for the rest of their careers. A sixteen against France, eleven thirty there. Their whole careers though. I'm not saying scape out moment by moment. You can't predict the future. Eleven thirty AM Fox Sports. Plus is where you can watch us one of your food, bow, or however, you watch your soccer these days before we get the mailbag here. Quick authority looking for. We'll, we'll analyze more on on Thursday. Of course we've talked a lot about the players. I wanna highlight Tiber almost real quick because we think that he's going to become a professional coach after this may be in Major League Soccer. It's unclear whether he's had a good tournament so far making adjustments in the first game adjustments in the third game. And it seems pretty clear that if this is at their best we saw it against Nigeria, they are pretty dang good that they have the players they have the fluidity to ball out. It's at the top Thomas to find the right mixture of players. And yes, men is out. Kris Derek and his out with yellow card accumulation but it seems clear at the same can be very, very good. And there's an onus on tub romo's to pull it out of it comes down to two things. First of all right back, you can't play Mark McKenzie at right back. Again, I'm hoping that he won't. It's gotta be. Raho or desks. I worry that desks will get absolutely an isolated. He he's not a defender by any measure, a rule has a little bit better. But Desta so important for the US build up his sensuality as a right fullback in terms of, you know. Funneling the ball from back to front creating chances getting forward, creating overloads, it's tough, it's tough decision, but it's got to be one or the other can't be centreback played out of position. That's one, the bigger one is central midfield. I thought it was a huge mistake to start Durkin and survey Neha who are both defensive midfielders and Mendez against against cutter. I thought it led to passively lead to. Confusion off the ball, an inability to create penetration through midfield. It has to be either survey Nya or surreal. Oh surreal at defensive midfield. Paxton pommel as the Ritchie with desma as the ten if that is our central midfield. And if we have an actual rightback and everything else is as it should be. We got real chance against a French team for anyone who hasn't watched France won their group. They actually haven't played great, and they've also rotated their lineup completely. So it's a bit of a question Mark for the US what they're going up against. So it should be fun to watch. And also, by the way, I'm looking forward to all the folks who say, oh, the US only cares about athletics them when they size in lettuce when they watch that French team of fricken giants time we have as we normally do forgotten to give away our jerseys here. We have to, to give out to fantasy winters winters, excuse me winters. Zappa tur-, Dina, bro. Seven one three one last week. I XE USA cell. Sir that I think that's Greg, Greg gotta be Greg seltzer one this week so out. Yeah. This is going to be for the Dinah bro. Ooh. Oh, Eastern Conference. I'm thinking, actually think that's maxi Zee on the end gives it away. So a maximum assigned NYC seizures this one for Greg seltzer. No astras. He's here for him. But we do have a new. Roles. A'double Oh, no. It is. It is a Kaku. I believe and maybe be on Kucinich Kaku. Or does this says? I don't know. Those are good ones. Those are good polls right there. So Greg, congratulations, male or one two zero six zero trims from Minnesota says it was awesome, seeing the great Kaelin card, Alleanza field this week. And I also was lucky enough to meet Zana, and we be our home opener. However, in five games Alleanza with no extra time host present. Only one goal has been scored on the loons in two games. With extra time host presence. We've had six goals scored against us. I'd love to see the rest of the extra time crew in Saint Paul for game. But please, please, please leave your curses at home and car. It's an open question, whether he works here anymore. He does he's not ever here. I mean, and then we'll have you let's 'cause unattached on Brandon in Columbus, obviously the Caribbean decimated by injuries so far and I'll confess new to Columbus in the crew. So what options if any do they have from a youth perspective to replace Gonzalo Eguaveon? He tore his ACL. He will be out for the full season guys how they replace them. Josh Wolff skit a playmaker. I don't think this. Now I got this coming out ready over there. Bobby is going to tell you to play three defensive midfield. Oh, and patriots leftback. He is wasn't even going to tell you. He's going to tell you the bench jesse's. I might have been a leftback can't some point in bobby's brand. Oh my God. You know what? That's called inception. Yes. Why nothing wrong? Why can't the crew Elliot c do? Right. They don't have Latif blessing who knew that with plus and can do it. Latif blessing doing between before Latif lesson sort of doing it, but why can't they replicate that why can't they go Gutman Artor patriots Antos, especially with travel for nationally duty and say, I dare you to try and pass through the middle against us. Just try something new. I have a reason because they don't have Carlos Vela. Here. Right. They do have who Pedro Santos is now inside for you. Let me do this every fall for this every time come, I guess, David comments kind of back to that's close one on we because we'd be like stock about. We import on sense. I'm upset we he's not going to be at the opening of providence park. He always talks about coming for a game and doesn't have a coming on August. Sixteenth seventeenth eighteenth. You've got T two on Friday thorns, and then the MLS Cup rematch on Sunday. So you not only get two games. You get three and you get any are you watching slash listening, either on YouTube, wherever you your podcast because that my friend is a plan. That is bookable. I can execute on that we can lock this, in this minute right now out of this during in Andy, I will bring. Or would you make it like a bachelor's Mendis best friend, just moved to Portland? Oh this. This. Hiring us and the Domino's. And I'm about to go knock them down via slack right now, after this anything left guys in the shadow to our audio guy Carlos who does a great job. Ecuador just got through to the quarter. Yeah. Hey, shut the Kaelin. His well I joked about him, not being here. He's doing movement shoots. He did Ramadan one with this is going to be I opening. I'm sure of it pride night for Minnesota. He did by the way props every single one of the supporters groups that put up those pride tvos this weekend. That's awesome sunk. Right. We Alice right? One includes, we support our LGBTQ community and friends and family. But Caitlyn said he's not watching very much soccer right now 'cause he's so busy taping and filming and being talent. But he said the extra time crew is keeping them up to date on all the games. He feels so highly washed, even though he's only looking at the stats right now. That knows that everyone in that Melissa left back in box. He should have been a box of Buxton actually probably would have better coming through in the audio. Thanks for listening to grow for Matt Bobby subscribed to my new news letter US national team newsletter. Oh, it's plug time. We're getting outta here. We'll see there's a.

"The time his ally find out what's going on in the mls get lost. Maybe this podcast is in good as well. Everybody up here. Every single day goes into the amish laboratory trying to cook up some great stuff from you guys. From new york new york you are listening to extra-time driven by continental tire from kansas city. I andrew we be with my partners. In soccer david goss. Charlie davies the best one two combo in podcasting and north american soccer. Certainly but maybe even the world good lord. I leave last week all of a sudden. They're getting text messages saying. Hey you don't need to come back. These guys got. It was a wonderful show is a beautiful show. And i was a little bit hurt by that. But you know you guys do you. Don't you don't have you don't have a galaxy shrine and if you don't have a galaxy try and you can't cheat to on this podcast and we have cheech reto hobby hernandez on this very podcast. So this is teamwork. Charlie dismissed my role. I know you wanna say you can do this without me. But you can't okay. You can't. Charlie's appear striker. He doesn't see the buildup he doesn't care some. If it's not you we'd be someone will getting the ball. He doesn't it doesn't matter to him. I appreciate the build up though. But you know. I'm gonna finish. I'm going to and that's what we did. It was it was direct in gas was the leader captain. He was in the middle just directing and we made a beautiful performance. You did and i appreciate it. Thank you stop this your presence. I'm glad to hear you say that. That's the entirety of what this was about. Was just at some point for you to acknowledge that you missed me. Now that we've done that. We can talk about soccer galaxy. La afc on saturday. The i l. traffic of the does i l traffic ever which sounds incredible to say eight. Pm eastern on fox big fox antenna fox bunny ears fox. Everybody can get it over the air fox. Watch this game. Do not miss this game. We're going to preview that in-depth and we got about fifteen minutes for you with dave people the cell. What did he talk about. What did we get into with javier you. You changed your now period on it out there. That i had another opinion of him. Okay ninety point listen. I'm a usa fan of usa fan my entire life. I respect league. Max la liga. Mx respect what mexican players have done in the world. I root against them. Because it's my job to root against them so rooted against taibbi aaron and is on the field for a fairly long time in his life and he was super engaging charming. And i think everyone's seen from the interviews on tv. His talk about mental health is it. It's unique something that all of us need to talk about more and it's one of those things. Athletes are starting to speak up about and it's really impressive to see just his willingness to be open and be vulnerable and to approach these subjects in these settings so yeah we should have back on for like ninety five minutes special one hundred presented once a month. He didn't hide at all and he he's embracing right now and i think that goes to what he called the shadow in the light in his life over the last year and a half or so. It's clear he's gone through a lot and is going through. But it's impressive the way. He's doing that in a public where we also talked to him about carlos vela not the player the man they've known each other since they were fifteen years old in guadalajara. So get a little insight on that as well plus traffic. Go get his preview on that game in this show. We've got a mega preview of all the national tv games. this week. And i think by mike cowen. I'm not the best accounting. But i think there are six and of course we're going to get to Our espn plus games of the weekend mailbag and we will establish as it has always been free. Space is disappointment that i was right to be the wet blanket. You guys talked me off the ledge. Now we're back on. The ledge just kept champions league is not kind to mls and at this point Union your only hope like princess leia style union. Help us your only hope. Please like the death. Star is in front of us and we've got to find the garbage chute somehow. Hopefully jim curtin. Boys can do it before we get into the soccer. Talk here at the all new soccer dot com. Greg shelter has which teams are having an early success which those are for real. Doyle's got his tackle preview traffic. Oh and why teams are playing forward. Setups i got your week for cheat. Sheet coming out thursday And you can also over the weekend. Hit us with what you see on the field for instant replay charlie. It's really helpful. Right when we get these tweets from people with like what they saw when they saw and what they think it really sets the shop. We wanted to be a show for the people. It is a show for the people. So if you see a call that you like that. That doesn't look right to me. Let us know because we would love to talk about. We'd love to kind of share. Our insight on what was going through the players minds was going through the referees. Mind and what we think is the right call so please send it in because it's going to make it more interesting to hear from you and by the way you don't have to agree with what we say. You don't need us to tell you that a lot of people already tell us that. But that's the fun of the show. Oftentimes charlie and i disagree all right. Let's get into it. The producer andres reminder of the day is we were all deceived. Free space is and has always been disappointment. your czl. Recap goes a little something like this. Columbus crew two two on aggregate five losers on aggregate go to monterey and lose three nothing the portland timbers lose three one two couple of medica as teke. They are out Let's see who else you're philadelphia. Union one aggregate. They drew atlanta united. One one there was something interesting. After that one we'll get to and of course crews will handle toronto. fc four one on aggregate. So what was. it was Like four teams through five teams through to the quarterfinals. One team through to the semis that in a nutshell for you. Jonathan yardley who always has a numbers on this stuff has emma's record against mexican teams in two leg series Like real competition. Not friendly's it's nine and forty folks. It's three and twenty seven when the second legs in mexico. It's six and eleven when the second leg is in. Mls venues and owen. when it's a neutral orlando which is a new edition for this year. I mean this is the way it happened when in disney against land I wou i wasn't taking into this. That's fair we're gonna have to fact. Check jonathan thank. You might be right about that one. What do you think about this. How do you how do you feel. Yeah yeah it was real. It wasn't a wednesday night side. You can go. I know i was just going to say given portland's situation. I still think that was an honorable way to go out. Losing three one at to be honest. You look leo suarez. He's a special player. He's not going to be with america four. I would highly doubt. He's going to be with them in the semifinals. Just because i could see a number of european clubs coming to them if not even an mls club because he's that good given that think three one it's it's respectable. You're playing against club. American their home. Yes you got a penalty. Cau- i think it was a phantom penalty. Call kind a makeup call for the foul on as far as in the first half but this is for me. it's it. it's not as bad as seems you look at columbus crew that lets me down because they are so talented they they should have performed. Better in things didn't go their way. And i think a lot of the conversation coming out of this as well. What's wrong. what can change what we know. I think one is. Let's see how philly does first before we have this conversation. Because i understand depth is a big part of what people are talking about quality and this comes on the heels of it. Sounds like flory and talvin at twenty eight year old. French international is about sign with egress. That's what we're chasing and that he wasn't even nc sale this year like that's the quality of teams. we're talking about and charlies. Talking about suarez and cordova and henry. Martin came off the bench in this game. That's how deep club america is. But i still come back to the timing of this competition because you want to talk about that. Columbus went into the first leg of this competition and played their third and fourth centrebacks. I don't know a team in the world that's going to go into the biggest game of the year with their third and four centrebacks and play well in columbus tie that game two to should have one to one so then they come to the second leg clearly they were unprepared or they were incapable of playing this game without celery. And that's where you can talk to me about depth in something. You look at toronto. They were missing. Josie swallow satele. Though now kemar lawrence mavinga wasn't ninety minutes match fit ericsson. Gherardo went out fifteen minutes in. I understand wanting depth. But there's no teams in the world that can cover some of this. So i still come back to the timing of the competition when you look at the way columbus plate. When you look at portland charlie. I thought they played well as well. But it felt like they didn't have the legs. And that's altitude and part of that is the situation on travel but didn't feel like a team that was ready to play at that level for ninety minutes and so i'm fascinated to see what happens with philly going forward because we've never had this scenario except sort of last year with l. Afc but that was neutral sites in all of that. And i still come back to. It's hard for any team to compete. In this scenario when you're playing against teams at their peak then you add in how good these teams are. and so. That part's unfortunate. It really a lot of it was the first leg. These teams didn't set themselves up. If you had one to one would have been different. I think if portland had been able to win two one it would have been different as well. The early goals killed them in this one and yeah it was a pretty wednesday night was super frustrating. Were tuesday night. I was like i got wednesday. Night will come back around. Still hopeful slightly. Didn't happen for the tuesday night. Gave us this. You know. Jim curtain wall charlie. We all love. Jim curtin jim curtain and gabrielle. Heintze in this game Second leg that was drawn but philly basically wanted it in the first leg. that's a moments during the match. They had some conversations. There was something building at the final whistle. They got together for a chat. That you don't normally see you normally see like the pleasantries coach. Shake hands and keep it moving very rarely. Do you get like oscar. Paret caleb porter tissue style like mano a mano very rarely get long conversations. This when stretched out and i was cursing the tv producer. Cut off it. I just want. I don't. I don't need to see anything but jim curtin got have this conversation and afterwards gotta insight into what went down from jim. Curtin said that's private stuff. I don't wanna talk about it. But basically curtains said heintze was accusing the union of flopping of diving of time-wasting of doing all these things that essentially help them get the results that they got and move on to the champions league semifinals. and then. here's a gym curtains. Said i'm just gonna direct quote him on this quote. He's an incredible coach. Talking about heintze an incredible player but you can still be a sore loser and be an a hole at the end of the game. I still think there's a right way. I think you should shake hands like men after the game. He'll probably have something to say. Now that i've said that but again i'm not going to sit here and just take it anymore. Jim curtain bringing all the smoke and not manorial smoke. He i mean. The man wears a hoodie and both legs. His team gets through and then he comes in drops sat in the post game. Press conference if you're a player. Charlie on the union and you see that quote what are you thinking. What are you thinking just as someone who loves this game and like oh damn jim. Curtain went there ghabra heinz. I'm height and i think it comes off. You have a little bit more. I think status having one supporter show last year. You have something now to kind of back you up and you come into this performance you like. Yeah lenny you were. You did. Have all the glitz and glamour. You are the two thousand eighteen almost cup champion. Those times are long gone. You're top dog anymore and gabrielle. Heintze with all due respect. You are fantastic player. I even probably supported you when you're at manchester united winning trophies. But now you're in you're in my house. We just beat you. We move on you. Don't shake my hand have some respect. Don't gimme the our diving around. We beat you in atlanta and we move on. You didn't beat us at our house either. So i if. I'm a player in the locker room of mike. Oh this is out of character but i liked that you show that philly. We were proud of ourselves. And you're not going to disrespect us in our house. You're gonna shake our hands and move on. Thanks for coming so i. I love this from jim curtain. It's something that i guess you know. He hasn't really shown we haven't really seen from him. He hasn't shown because he had nothing to to kinda back. It up. now he does. He has a supporters shield and he wants to show. Hey we're not done. We wanna we wanna win. Cc l. we want him to win more trophies. And we're going to do it in in our way out of saudi. They got a shot by the way when carlos vela comes on loan and stephan. Frank comes online. Whoever else they need for that seat. Cdl semifinals. yeah. I think you're montero is suspended for the i know for the first leg which i believe am ifc against mls team. And i'm gonna spend it but to charlie's point. I actually took that the same way as him which was in the way. This league has grown. Gabriel hindsight comes in ten years ago. He's king right. He's played for argentina in a world cup. He's played at menu. nps she and everywhere else. He's king whatever he says goes. And i think now to charlie's point. It's jim curtin in philly saying you haven't won in this league. You don't know how like you. You can't come in and tell us how people in this league are supposed to play and operate and also you can't nothing philly did over the course of this. Well i guess. The i was a bit contentious over the course of the second game though was like outside the realm of possibility of wasting time and diving in asking for calls or any of that. That wasn't even like really the vibe of the game. So i like that jim. Curtains stepped up and said that in gwen he laughed. He tripped over his coach of the year. Trophy back off and walk and he's like. Oh hey i forgot that. Was there man. I gotta get that back on the shelf where that thing so weird to have brought this joan. Did somebody show gabby this or do i need to go in there and show them right now. I can tell you. I'm proud of you. Jim curtain i am proud of. You've grown you made me happy. Keep going you gave me. he's one. he's one of the best coaching personalities in this league and he's grown into that position. I think he always had that personality. But there was an element of like learning and proving and it happened over many years in philly and now we see a coach that is saying i demand respect and i i've earned it like give it to me. I'm not going to sit back and quietly say oh man. I didn't get my hand shook. All you wanted to talk to me after the game now just smacked you. That's it. I also think there's an element of and i don't think it's american or canadian against not american canadian. I think it's inlaws. Experience against non s experience. I think there's a lot of as you said. I think charlie managers that have either played here been here or made their careers here. Who look at some of the guys that are coming in and the hype and the expectations and like the headlines that come with and say timeout. I'm the one that wins these games when we play when we collect trophies. We're the ones that the bruce arena's peter vermes is the killer borders those car. Pray house greg. Vanney up and down. We're the ones that are actually doing this. By the way we're tactically More more depth than people give credit for. We are better managers than they say so. This was an awesome moment. It's one of those things where a lot of darkness this week for. Mls this was a little bit of light. And i'm so happy for jim. Curtin a union. They got a great opportunity. Here it's going to be difficult Very difficult I was hoping that the timbers would get through so we can have to teams on that side of the bracket just to guarantee a place in the final. It did not happen that way. So now you've gotta do what you gotta do to win this thing which is beat the very best competition in mexico. We'll see if they can do it. Three teams one. Mls team the union. Their very first are carrying the flag. Well it's the weekend care next year. I'm telling you now not gonna i'm not gonna committed. I'm not going to get hurt. Or are you gonna back saying. It's gonna take thirty seconds after the draw. I'm going to be well. That's the problem yet. I hope this year old strong tried to hold strong and you guys were like. You're the worst all fake. It was bloster. I was all in we. You gotta be all the hurt a little bit. You can't live if you if you can't you know you gotta get hurt. You gotta put yourself out. There is the win. Won't be true. You know okay all right. We'll see. I'll be celebrating with containers. Gonna look chester baby. I'm flying to chester. If that happens on the banks of the delaware we will celebrate the very first victory in the car. Cap champions league Let's get through the weekend and there is one game we have to start with. That has traffic. Oh you're gonna hear us repeat this over and over and over and over eight. Pm eastern. On saturday l. a. galaxy hosting on fox fox deportes. We've got an interview feature retail coming up in just a half second but before we do that. What what does this represent this l. traffic. Oh to you guys. Teach retail has not played in us. He was hurt last year and then lost his backward honors. Fact check for that because we were like in the champion. Wait a second where we right. Yeah he is not played in this. This is why he came for this rivalry this moment. Yeah even if you had. It's not in the stadium. It's like this. There was a lot of games against each other last year. And i think l. Afc set a tone in the way they played in them. But this is l. traffic in like this is what he's been waiting for the entire time and for the galaxy this offseason gave them a reset. And you don't get those all the time and the hope is greg vanney is going to be here for a while The hope is that teacher retails going to be successful in this team for a while and that dennis to close is going to stick around and be successful as well. You only get one first chance to redo this. And fortunately for the galaxy early on they were able to at least beat l. afc head-to-head even if they weren't the better team overall across the season that gave them that little bit of edge that gave their fans something to talk about. Something it'd be proud of. This is an opportunity to do that again because the galaxy been nowhere near l. Afc for the last two years so they've got a chance this week on national tv in front of everyone to say we might not be all the way back but we're back in this conversation. We're going to go toe to toe with this team. Every time we face off and so that's the opportunity to galaxy have in this game to goodwin's to start the year convinced. Then go and lose to a seattle and that kind of reaffirms. The people who don't believe in you totally that maybe you're not at that class so this is the opportunity to prove all of that wrong and get a big win. Charlie zero difference between winning this game if you're the galaxy if carlos velez there and if he's not there how much is his potential absence or his potential presence to be honest. I have no idea what's happening with ella. We talked about it on monday. No idea he could like trot out and start this game and be like you know ninety nine percent and i wouldn't be surprised and he could be nowhere near the bench and i wouldn't be surprised. How does his presence and then like is status hanging over effectiveness. I it's it's massive. We're talking about one of the best players in this league. Probably be best player in this league when he's fit and healthy so when you don't have him there's a massive difference because he can beat you on the dribble he can create space he can dictate the tempo. A lot of of the success falls on his shoulders when you're talking about winning trophies because this is a player that is not going to go over to europe when he's playing well and scoring thirty goals year. This is his home. Dig rosie on the other hand. We could see him be sold. I think that's the plan out to esta rosie. They will probably be sold but for carlos villa. This is his home. This is where he's going to stay. This rivalry is his so you need him on the field because he is capable of those individual brilliant moments where we saw last year against san jose dribbles a whole team and scores even being the keeper waiting for him to come and then shipping it in over the last defender. I love that you i think. Llc need carlos villa to be at their best. I question does as aids him. Well yeah you always wanna watch. Carlos fellow play although l. Afc without carlos vela fully healthy are one of the best teams in mls just to answer the question. Which i don't know of any matters. I don't think it matters if the galaxy win fellow or not that's the galaxy win over l. Afc with greg vanney for the first time teaching if they lose data matters because you lost without villa to l. afc. Nothing's changed the team's going nowhere. Who are your centrebacks. What is the formation all those things. So that's where. I think it matters all right. Let's child which each rideau here we talked to him on. Wednesday unders deployment. We're delighted now have to hernandez on extratime time driven by continental tire. It's a dream for us. Javier thank you for joining us. How you doing man. I'm very good actually very exciting for these week. Regardless of the so that we got a last weekend they was in the the greatest boy. I think he was a very very good wakeup call for us. But yeah excited when you have a traffic all these. Oh you always are like little excited. I'm in my in my in my opinion and in my circumstances is my first one. So gonna be great. Do you like the name l. traffic. Oh there's been some debate about this. I mean i think he's relevant if i like it or not. What i like is the the rivalry that a even even though they been a for a short of time covering rally galaxy hearing them unless they're being with gupta. The last season's is so yeah of course was great. I mean i'm always in favor of of teams a rivalry on players and anyone who who who brings a competition you know because when when you competing in very healthy way you elevate yourself. That's why we love sports as well. Because you want to challenge yourself against the best ones to save you like like like learn from there and became like a better bischofberger As a human now so team so of course. They traffic classical debbie. I don't care. I mean we know how specialties these games audible but one as well that i went to to to mention the attention is is about the next game. But that's why i always mentioned about about the. That level is much better than people think because we went to seattle and unseeded. Game-high was settle. He's being one of the greatest team for the past five years. At least you know so that that that's amazing about about the competition that they think in. Mls just some games difficult and some games have like very easy right on the whole the whole whole gang's every single game against every single team. You need to to give a hundred percent. Kill yourself to try to to get the three points this game. We don't know if it's going to be full strength. l. afc we know how good they are when they have your friend carlos villa. I got no. We don't know if he's gonna play. It's a mystery to me maybe not to you. Have you talked to your friend. I think we can agree if there's novella teacher though it's just not quite the same look. Haven't haven't talked to him. And even even though. If i if i will i mean i i gotta tell you obviously of course is the same lok of people think sometimes the to try to find shortcuts writing a way. Of course we know. Elliot c is not the same win win win a player like not in the beach we all know but as well we need to either respectively the team of the players. They have because there are very good team with an amazing player. Killed them you know. He's like he's like in in in galaxy. I if i don't play of course things can speak about. Another stop of the galaxy. Teams are very good one. I mean so curious about that. Football is about that is about team teamwork. You know we can go on. Play more individuals for c. We won all the credit and stuff like that. I mean so. We need to know about that. But yeah i understand. It could be an advantage for us or not. I want to say that the only thing is like. I'm always want to fight and to to try myself against the the best teams the best player so you will be great if you place of course not. I mean. This is not our fall. Try to do our best regardless if he plays or not. We're gonna face an amazing squabbling. You said we're gonna expect that they want to play under. They are going to be in the top level so we can a being the same level and hopefully we can do the things that greg since today is telling us the tactics did they namic and the way he wants us to place where we can have more than teaching the game. Hopefully we can get the three points in our in our hub. Sereno carlos fell on the field. He's let this league up for a number of years. You've known him since your status as little kids all the way through so take it out of soccer. Tell us who is carlos vela. What's he like. what makes them tick. Look i will. I'll i mean carlos vela is is is like in the way that he became sometimes called. Sometimes he doesn't like to do some interviews to to show himself that much but that that's his personality because when you when you talk to him or you let he has the very funny in a way because he's making so so much jokes but in a way that he's normally so serious because he's he's got very smelly guy but he has this human race amazing. What as well. He's serious. He has that so i mean he's about personality in the way that he plays is the way that he tweeted. He's so talented. He's so like he he can improvise things. He's not a guy who who who you can see that he has like a plan right. He's just like thailand and manji just happens exactly in his food unites am. I saw that since he started playing with me when we were fifteen years old imagined that it was the same guy. He's who are so like he was always always above a anyone us even even about my age and on a lot of because he's like one year all younger than than than us you know. So i mean that's kind and i love him so much. He's being a very special person because we grew up together. We play to walk-ups we be like spending a lot of times in in our careers and of course but then valerie comes our said. I love him so much. But when i'm with my club sheriff is like i don't know for ninety minutes on enemy If i need to do whatever. I need to get the three points. I will do it. You know with all the respect. And then when the whistle ends we love again. We can have this friendship but that does a cool part of all sports unislamic challenge. You compete to enjoy with fans on everything. But then when the whistle goes the results in your favor is great and if the result is you need to be a looser it's like we are all humans we can we can enjoy. We can joe. We can arose little this of course but with respect i don anyone can be mad at you for ninety minutes. That's impossible man. We we've been much you keep saying. Give your best self. And i keep thinking to myself have years twenty. Twenty one is how we should all be living trying to be our best selves. You said duality and when you say duality. I think yin and yang and i see that on your forearm. When you've done these post game interviews. Is that a new tattoo. When did you guys story and the northern utah to the meaning. It's definitely islam is like the the gene young and of course what the the most like general meanings of do we know is like more of a balance of peace and stuff like that for me that it has the meaning like i mentioned. Duality for me do ali. It's like we all have like a light and shuttle because that makes us human. The important thing here is like we can wake up or conscious so we have so conscious when sometimes our shadow comes we can court people or even sometimes we can miss it up because really the consciousness that we can be app like like. Ask for forgiveness. In the way of like submission will like you just say that you were wrong right and then you are you. We want to be like and people sometimes and it happened to me too in my life saying that light goes with glaciers seeking only pleasure and for me what i what i'm seeking is is joyful is joy because when i enjoyed when i grow and i cannot grow challenge myself if i don't put myself in uncomfortable situations like that's why i utilize soaking of is being in my blood. He challenged me so much to be a better version of part of a soccer player as a human every single time. Even with you guys like in the way that. I won't speak in the way that i wanted to whatever i want to say in the in the way that everything that is in in in in in my hands and in my control i can do it better. Not do it better to feel that. I'm a better word human. I always said there's no successor. No money there's no fame. There's nothing that's schule. Make you feel more or less than any human you know. We are equal in that way. We are different others the causing. We all learn about ourselves and and another person's but that's does anything i grow because have one life that might times count. I don't know how long i'm gonna be here so my experiences that i want to is. He's those ones that. I challenge myself as a father as a partner as a friend as our complete human in a way and i decided as a soccer player nittany superficial where. I'm going to choose myself. So how life on. I can charge. Let's just. That's what ginger means to me when i see is like i'm fool man. I'm full coup to play the game. That i early. The soccer like the game of life of the game of life is. I believe that we come to grow. Because growth connects you with love and then grows growth is when when consciousness is there so sometimes you don't even rules you don't need volume Because when you're so conscious unique to harm no one jury fulfill you don't need to seek to fulfill some emptiness of sometimes we all have on. Just we just want to hear r. e. instead of here or soul or light. This reminds me of a like a formula galaxy store in national team star. Landon donovan who was very open and who liked to talk about life outside of soccer and who valued that to such a degree you said in some interviews have emotional coach and you had we all know and you've said a difficult two thousand twenty. We all had a difficult twenty twenty and now twenty twenty one. You're starting to feel and see some light. We can all see that through you. What did you feel. You needed to work on with your emotional coach. Where have you been sort of personally in the last few months. Lloyd's being. I'm not only in the in the few months because i was working with him since before. The russia workup. I started working with like six months before that. And it's like live very vocal is like in-in-in-in everything nothing realistically. Because what. I walking totally myself like. I want to be so conscious of the of of that. I have the responsibility of myself of my perspective of the way that i get things i mentioned in one inter will krause in spanish person because he he brought up this question about we saw you like angry and stuff like that and he thought he was angry of media and stuff and talking. I realized he was. I was angry about myself about life because we all do. We all like why me why me. Why knee because we stained that victims. Some that i call undeclared that i that i realized we hymns longtime sometimes. We are humans when you're going to be perfect self work life. There's no destiny. There's no need to arrive. There's no place that you're gonna feel that i arrived and i'm pain like lives costa kale's ladies like it's sony's cloudy things can happen. People die like family family members. Die you have keyed. Then you need to let it go. They need to grow. You have friends like life is like letting go on love and then see what is the balance is like construct like and growing a flat surface when you can cheat on lots. The people want to do that. I'm gonna judge respectful. That's when i called his like george dining away right in my opinion is very strong words. Solid that's why. I've been working with him in that way to be fully responsible undone make. Don't stay as much in the victim. Even though i have feelings and there are things that made me sad me. Angry made me nervous made me. Everything's i'm human like all of you but they're not don't want to stay there. I want to start out with a shot. I can so dan. I take the responsibility then he thinks to solve. I've found the solution stain the drama of just complaining and don't do it. I'm making excuses. It's nice for your ego so my uncomfortable. There you let go you take breast serie. A very the full responsibility of yourself and your won't because life is not easy. No one in life tall you when you when you on that live show will be easy. I wonder you do that interview after the game against inter miami. We see your emotion and as you've been speaking for the last few weeks and for the last year it's new to see athletes talk this way and it's new to talk about mental health and and what's going on. Have you gotten reaction from from friends from family for from fans. What's it been like. Espn for for friends. Thankfully not that much because they being known me in the bus three years and a nice big with them in this way like speak about. Duality of course is a game is fun and sometimes you can get serious as well. You can take that person seriously like that's my as well and then when you speak about the interview and i cry. Cry cry of happiness. I cry of of sudden. I cry of anger. I'm not that guy who who like gets angry because the owner personalities right on the somebody's from these maladies not copy but then it does it as a way of expressing even when. I'm happy when i'm touched. When i see makeith and see things i'm like prying when i'm right when i get angry at cry cry. You saw the impact every single time. That i want to show even though it's me even though it's my career even do it's me who's pushing a needs me. Who wants to grow on. I'm doing that sell-off et cetera. The impact is like i'm a human guys a human. Let's normalize the real human lists stop asking for perfection. Please not even for me like for anyone like. I don't want my kids to grow whatever they want to do. They need the field that they need to be perfect. What's perfect you know what i mean like we are what it gene. I'm fully. Because i have my my life like all of us. We all set up so let's not mess it up. I mean i'm not going to their their their levels so messing up on their level so of course that problems you know things that we need to work him with responsibility. Don't get me wrong putting the in day like for awesome soaker blades. Like i'm a human. Of course. I have about about season and that was the one to react. The good thing is like yeah. The story of overcoming me on everyone. So doesn't miss that. I try always to try to bring up. Thank you for you guys to let these up. Because sometimes me a speaking of also could've and i love it and you see it as well. These make these makes me feel very passionate about it right because it's like that's what i believe the society and these wall like needs needs of a message or recipe were medicine where we need to see inside ourselves. Like the answer's out of their. This allusion saturday. Just you need to to take it. Of course he's harder to have responsibility to love to be patients to go for the long run than the shorts. Show the media the everything in in hand right so does does anything. Thank you that you led me for simple you on on the people that were like. I said it in an interview. We need not only the people who say only the message. We need you guys to to to to get his message that way because like our said why you answer the questions because we because the questions are the same time you friend answers. Bring me questions writing away. So this is a team in a way of thinking about press and people who has these platforms on exposure these jobs. I think that's that's a work of to not only about the message guy is wilt receptors. And as well for you guys. I think i completely agree heavier from one cryer to another. We appreciate you man. It's been great to watch. You have success this year. Hope to see it in the game this weekend saturday. Pm eastern on big fox you can watch traffic thereto. Maybe vela la galaxy. Thank you for joining us man. We appreciate your good luck. Thank you thank you guys. I think i can say that javier hernandez is now a friend of extra time. I feel that he's a friend of extra. I don't know if he feels that he doesn't even know who you know he was like. Who are those guys again. Thank you thank you interests you that again. Yeah i'm coming in out. Okay i knew you know. I knew i knew that was coming charlie. Optima soften him up and then next time. I'm coming in with the heat. So okay all right. What did you take away from the interactive. What was the big sort of takeaway when it comes to just cheetos person and the player too but i think more so from that interview the person. Yeah i think we talked a little bit about it at the beginning of the show of his ability to talk about mental health. And all those things. It's amazing and i would also say there was a lot that went into bringing teacher reto to this league and i was unsure at times. Just what it would be worth than how it went down and when you hear him talk you understand why the galaxy and mls want him to represent them like this. Is the exact person you want to go out and speak for your league. Oh there's a player great career a lot of stops its world cups all that success but now you can understand as a spokesman like what he will be for this league for the rest of his life and i think you see it with honoree and we've seen it with beckham and teacher. Cheeto is clearly going to be in that category of every event every big moment. He's going to be one of the faces of mls and it's pretty special. The person that he is. It's pretty awesome. And hopefully we have to hang out on a beach day. La what's what's make that happen. Thereto hardest. I think the other thing that goes along with that is that to truly be an effective spokesman that way he needs to score goals and be successful because in the place that he was last year as a player he would not have that credibility. Because he hadn't have done it it would have been your stint was a failure so he's in the process right now of making it a success and i think that's why i've been obviously have the galaxy strength but i've been so like into the reto storyline and is this very classic story of redemption and the story arc is still going and we're just at the very beginning of sort of that uptick like there still could be a fall from grace. They're still could be an injury. There could be something that derails. This could be bad performances. The galaxy could not put chances on a platter for him there. Centrebacks as you said could just be a little swiss cheese and it doesn't matter how many goals he scores but there is something happening here that can be really special not just for the galaxy but for this league. And i think for soccer in this region and i just. I hope that it happened. So i hope this week in traffic again. Saturday eight pm eastern on fox fox deportes that he has a massive game. Carlos vela is there that we see this friendship that he described happen on the field and after the game organically that we get those moments between the two of them that would maybe get a little bit of trash talk but that we get maybe you know as he sort of said about himself the best this game that mls that this rivalry that these teams these players can offer. And that's i mean that's what we all want from ourselves from our teams from our league from from everything that we do and so you hear him talk about it like that and his focus and his determination and his acknowledgement that. He isn't perfect and a ton of sadness in his life. The shadow is he said I honestly was inspirational to me. So i'm looking forward to this weekend. I hope there's a let's say is latin moment of vintage moment. Whatever that moment may be. Maybe it's cheap. Thereto hat trick. Maybe it's carlos vela dribbling the whole team as you said. Charlie maybe it's just the insanity of free four-game and l. traffic feeling like holy crap. It's back and it's real and there's fans there to see it and support it and feel it. We got something special coming so it. You mentioned the best out there so we didn't talk about before but spatula jet. We'll be back which is huge for the galaxy. Two games suspended. I encourage anyone to go out and look up athlete ally who he worked with during his suspension after the homophobic slur that he said and they've been doing incredible work for lgbtq plus community but in the soccer sense this means Have to play. Winger own fisher. Doesn't have to start if that's what they go with if not if cabrera comes back or they have someone else on the wing. Whatever it is you saw a lack of of quality in that final third in seattle and they were able to get through it against the red bulls at home. Legit now brings another a player who can set up. Who can joan a playoff. Who victor vazquez can play off of and that is a huge piece for the galaxy. I i think if they don't have and look. I'm i'm praying. I don't have an llc shrine shrine man. he needs to be in this game. He he needs to be in this game but if he's not i think if you're bob bradley you still feel good because you feel like you're midfield rossi and bared their movement can pull this galaxy back line apart can expose gaps and if you expose those gaps. Odds are you're gonna you're gonna win this game. Is that that to me. Is the story pre danny when the galaxy had done well they were able to kind of control midfield because you had legit and joe who could cover ground. Victor vazquez starts in this game. I mean k and blessing are gonna be running circles around that midfield so there's a lot of opportunity throwing this out. There means nothing anyone else. Las vegas lights have been taken over by. Llc for the first time they played l. a. To last night for the first time ever la two one five zero. That's our understands right. Now take traffic. Yeah wow gotta come back come back home day just five. Nothing on us right before traffic. Oh tough stuff. Tough stuff eight pm eastern traffic. Oh big fox over the air fox. You can get it anywhere fox for free fox saturday. L. traffic eight pm eastern All right let's keep it movin. Also on saturday. You got the first. I believe of the season coppola. Tejas metro matchup. This is no longer a texas darby deal. It's a three way. There's an austrian dallas and houston. I think there has to be still the canon right like you can still have tejas. Please dallas houston fans. Let us know what we're missing here. Says yes 'cause we case there in dallas. It's still get rid of l. Copy tano copied it has to be at stake but there is something larger. Now because austin is come in What is this for. Houston i think. I know what it is for dallas. They're at home. They have a little momentum from knocking off the timbers but this feels like a sort of like a put up and that shut up put up or maybe it's not as good as we thought it could be sort a moment for the dynamo just like the galaxy. It's a fresh start. So i'll take this one because as paul from houston put in the mail bag chucky captured whenever dynamo fan has felt for years last thursday when he said i struggle. When i watched the houston dynamo. Like charlie's less Up to you please. you take it. So thanks paul for the email. But but as i said with the galaxy i think this is another chance for houston where it feels new under thomas. Even if it's not his first year and with austin coming in its reset texas. It's reset the rivalry and no one knows where it stands right now and so for. Houston this is a chance to beat. Dallas here beat also in the first time you play them and you're in this conversation you're part of this robbery and you're setting the tone in the state of texas and you've kind of reemerged from what's been a tough last few years and so for houston. I think this means the most of any of these teams. I think dallas has an idea of who they are where they stand in the league. What they can be. Obviously they've got guys scoring and champions league over in europe. They've had success so in the playoffs. So i think dallas knows who they are in for austin. It's year one but also started well so there's the danger for houston a falling into the third seat. Yeah you don't wanna get let early. No don't ask vancouver fans how it feels not going to be very fun. So for houston. I think this is a big jim and even to propel them and say people aren't really watching us. We're happy with the soccer replay. Because they are over the first three weeks they got a good result against l. Afc great first week against san jose but people still aren't talking to them the way they should just like random people. People don't know people who are platform stuff people whose names rhyme was smartly smoothies. Definitely not slandered. The massachusetts doesn't respect of. Yeah so this is a big chance two weeks in a row national. Tv to say we in we play attractive soccer. We believe in who we are. We believe in who these players are. And so i think this is a big chance for the houston. Dynamo and i know that they didn't feel like replant people letting us know what they think. Charlie they were not happy. We're dynamo fans about our offside take on that On a goal by cory baird. They didn't think they should have stood. They think they should have got a win against l. Afc will again another chance. This is not the killing car. Dynamo of old. It's a different team and every single week. They're gonna have to prove that. Three thirty pm eastern on saturday to the in english on twitter. What about for dallas. Though last week was interesting. Portland timbers rotated heavily t three. Yeah you don't don't put much in that result to be honest it's okay okay extrapolating but yeah but look. It's a confidence booster ahead of this. One doesn't matter who you play you get four goals. Peppy starts paxton is starting to start get in there. They're showing that. Maybe those offseason signings aren't aren't the same. The previous offseason foreign savings have been for them. I mean there's something there for lucci he's still figuring it out. I think he has said publicly. Yes i'm still figuring this but what's interesting about that for him is he. Went three at the back to start the year. They went to the back last game which got required to closer to goal. Which i think he needs. He's not athletic enough to cover the ground to be that sacramento but bad hedges was hurt. So is this assistant that he sees and now he's got to fit his to centreback his three backs into it or is it just because matt hedges was hurt and he's going to revert back to what he did so i think there was. There was a lot of excitement from that game. And i think pepys play was a one not as a finisher but just his ability to get other people involved and if hor is not finishing he doesn't bring that at the level. That pepi does so. That's an opportunity for pappy to get the start. And then the other one is eddie. Joma who. I was a fan of in the academy. He's not brian reynolds good. He's not gonna explode on the scene like reggie did but he got the start at right back which slides hollingshead back to left back where he was so good over the course of the last year. If that's an option. I think that makes dallas more dangerous going forward. Kobe ties us. That's starting three pm eastern on twitter. On saturday six pm orlando nyc. Afc on espn. And i have a note here from andrea says. Dave has an idea. It says nothing else and usually that scares me normally. I would just try to roll. Pass out as fast as possible. You're looking very pensive dave. You're now. I just want to make sure i have the rule out. It's not that bad. Okay all right. Tell me any team the idea. So the the rule in fifa the laws say you can change your goalkeeper with another player on the field at any time as long as the ref is informed and it's a stoppage of play. What i'm saying is oscar. Pray hands in his starting line-up an hour before the game with wad gauche legal and pageau ogata's centreback. He trolls nyc afc for an hour. And then after i kick then when the first stoppage you swap them out and the memes and the gifts are worth all of it basketball player. That's quite a plan. I am now seeing just images of that playoff match that. Pk shootout dance in my head. I mean this. I wouldn't say this is atlanta orlando level but there is something special to this one that both sides feel from being basically expansion brothers and coming at the same time and having these diverting sort of fate certainly in my. Cfc's was better and now it kind of feels like orlando's trying to trying to one up landau quietly had a very good season. They've got a ton of newsweek as well. It seems like john routine is coming back. Definitely alexander does having surgery. That's gonna keep him out for a little while. Judy po totals on twitter space. Show that we do on tuesdays. Eleven am eastern on my handle We go through the power rankings. That oscar wants darrel decay back in purple before the summer transfer window. Which sounds crazy to me. Charlie when you see this matchup this game and you think about what's at stake for two teams that are within shouting distance of first place in eastern conference. Your boys the rams are up top but if they don't get a result in nashville this weekend in new york city orlando win. They would jump them and in the first place. What do you see in this game. Gets you excited. I'm excited to see one orlando can do after coming off that three zero win vs night. Cincinnati struggle and. We all know that. But that's the type of energy that you need from this orlando team without a striker like daryl decay of aachen deli. Who pro probably should've had a brace at the very least against the cincinnati team but never played against new york city in new york city of see have a really strong backline have been together for years with shaun johnson in between the pipes i like where new york city f c is finally heading the they look like finally caught onto how. We're gonna play how we're going to create goals five zero win against cincinnati. Got them going to win. Two zero against philadelphia in philadelphia. Which is very difficult. Place to play khazanah's. I've always thought this is. This can be a special player. He can be a special player in major league soccer if he finds the right gaps if these consistent if he's always playing more aggressive towards goal and with haste medina who i thought came on last year. They're very dynamic. Team orlando needs this this result because if they don't i think new york city of see we're going to see them. Hit a whole new level with major league soccer because that's the belief that they need to go to play against orlando into win. I think that's gonna really set the tone for them. This coming season does it feel inevitable that nyc cfc. You're going to go out in the summer and make a bunch of signings. I thought maybe more coming into the season just that final week or so and they did make some. But not as many as i expected so. I don't know that it's locked in that they're going to go out and get to. Dp's in the summer and especially if they start winning right why. Why do you need to add that much to this group. I think it'll be interesting in this game. If we're talking much individual matchups. James sands dropped into the back line and really sort of dictated with possession for nyc afc in their last one against philli. Now of course they were ten men philly because jose martinez lost their mind and karate chop to do the side of the head and they were failing coming off sea seattle which yes. Now there are some caveats. There's some flags this is for them because this would be the one where you'd say no caveats you beat orlando in a big game like this on national. Tv okay for sure you. Your team has found their feet and the other piece in bring a transfer whatever it felt like ta taty costly on ios was gonna go. It was going to happen last week because he's no longer eligible to play in copa libertadores. If you went to brazil. And i don't even know if the windows still open. So he's locked in now if they can if they can win here. That's a big like we're back. We know who we are. We're one of the top teams in the east into build off that if he doesn't go now and he wanted to go you're going to see him play with this fire in this passion so that he can leave the summer. So you're going to get the most out of them. Ideally from now until july which is which is perfect for new york city of see because then that transfer went opens in. You can replace him. And you know there are a number of names out there when you talk about both players who are coming towards the the tail end of their european career. Dare i say it do it. Sergio kunihiro i mean. That's i as soon as he was released out of that contract and he was like this. Is it for me and man city that was. That's the dream that's the dream. I'm not saying so taty but you know if you have a double of him in a bear and if somebody gets hurt you can move on a sounds pretty good i was gonna say the may i know. But if he when he gets back all right let let let the man he'll okay it's can delhi and sands in that back line because orlando. We're going to try to pressure. They're going to try to push him around and get the you know. Get possession routed in the ways that they can attack the ball and then turn around with those wingers and come at them. We'll see if it works. I think this is a big game for for jim sands on sunday. Inter miami atlanta is the first of two games on abc. it's a doubleheader starting at one pm eastern igwe novel joseph. This is not yet the rivalry that obviously atlanta orlando is well because it couldn't really be that last year was inter miami. I the fans were not in the stands. The games were weird. Joseph wasn't around to me. This feels like hopefully. And i'm not going to say it's already here but hopefully the birthplace of this and i hope it starts on the field. I hope it's like a little bit of that philly miami energy where there's a little contentiousness where there's something to prove between two new managers of two new clubs. Were both fan. Bases are looking down and being like nine. Now we're better than you. What are you like in this game. Dave what are you looking for. What excites you i. My expectation is wayne browser back. But i don't know that for sure. I haven't seen any coverage on that. Don't forget how they played last match. Say inter miami or atlanta. I didn't know who you're talking about. I was gonna say that's very inter- in yet okay. Remind us from your point of view how they nobody donald. You said i know charles. You're locked in. Because i feel strongly about this. I'll give it to a strong. Let's go i was. I was immensely disappointed with roy. They they played the game. How the post game. And i get it. You're missing gonzalo. Higuain not fair to rico because federico was always brought into kind of come in late stages the game controlled the the tempo get someone who's comfortable on the ball. Who can who can play into the white areas and float in between the gaps. but gonzalo. Yes you're missing your predator your number nine. Who's gonna score goals who's going to lead the line. They were just show themselves they. They were defending for large portions of the match. The national side and we we know how nashville place there. A little bit more expensive. But they're not the most creative team in inter. Miami just looked like a team with no identity with without going on. The field was like oh. We don't know how we're going to play. We don't know how we're going to attack. We're going to hope for the best. And then you bring in robbie robinson who leaves us already injured coming in then he. He had to be substituted on his body. That's all so for me. This inter miami team has so much to play for in so much to still prove. Because i'm looking at them now. And i'm saying this team's gonna finish in the bottom bottom of the league in miss out on the playoffs. No yet again results. And they weren't getting results last year. So that's the part that you have to take coming into this. Which is there's probably a level of belief and confidence in the group. They didn't have because on top of all you said if y'all got hurt in like warm ups and they had to readjust the whole lineup. Although they promised he wouldn't play right back. And i think he was scheduled to play right back in that game. So i think for miami. Yeah maybe it wasn't the soccer you want to see but to get a result on the road against the team that blew you out in the playoffs last year and then to get the brothers back and maybe go back coming into this one has to be a pretty big moment for them and i would say what's interesting about this matchup to me as i still question atlanta gold dangerous especially without a fully fit. Joseph this is a miami team that outside of last week has given up opportunities. So it'll be interesting to see the strengths and weaknesses of these teams. How that matches up. 'cause you know atlanta's going to throw numbers. Forward hines as trying to be aggressive. He's getting a ton of opportunities for his team. They just haven't been dangerous. I think this is a a miami back line that they can get better. Looks out of and hopefully score some goals and then on the flip side they lead themselves exposed and so lewis morgan. She eat up that entire right side over the course of this game and if they do have you seen back and the one thing. I disagree about federico charles if be sorrows playing as a false nine federico would have helped underneath him as an option but whatever it is if sorrow comes back in this is the type of game for him where it's wide open. He can cover ground. You can take the ball at pace and then get into that final third rather than try and pick apart a defense. When they're sitting in a deep block is barco gonna be there for this game is your dumb. I think the barco ones the big question. Because they don't they don't create clear goalscoring opportunities. They're not putting joseph martinez in the position that he was finding himself in the first three years and mls. It's a lot of hopeful stuff. It's a lot of possession of the final third but nothing really purposeful moment. Where you like bingo. They found it. Boom boom okay into the in line all right. Here's the service or all right. Here's where the gap is the run. I haven't seen that so far. There's a lot of buzzing around. There's a lotta guys on the ball in the final third. There's not a lot happening from that. If his ego barcodes not here. I'd be curious to see how they try to create because it seems like prensa he's saying you're the ten. We're going to try to get that out of you and you have to say that when you paid fifteen million for a guy and he hasn't delivered so far. This is going to be a fun. One they have signed in santiago sosa a very special player in this league. That's true what for that to be your only goal in a game. You're chasing three zero and a second leg is from your defensive midfielder. His game you goal that that that team is lost in the attack right now and if barcode just about whatever it is other. Mls teams are missing players as well you have to be able to finish opportunities with the quality of players that atlanta has brought. But there's a chance this games. Five four after saying all of that with l. g. p. playing center forward at times and alan franco playing as jesusa. So who knows. I'll tell you right now. Barco is the key for this team. And i thought was brought in in large part because he has a lot of these south american players and the argentine connection between him. Barco get the most out of your assets. He was brought in to be sold like they saw sold. Miguel marrone for twenty plus million. Because he's he's highly regarded a special talent. You talent in arjun arjun argentina. So for for me. When i seen on the field when he came in as a substitute assess substitute against the revolution. He was this creative. He wanted the ball. He was trying to to probe the new england revolution. Backline as he has to be has to be central to the attack. And that means you're putting so much pressure on him to deliver if you don't have him the playthrough this team has nothing absolutely nothing and is great associates. And i'm a fan of them. I can see the way. He reads game team player. Carlos he'll absolutely poster is him post arised him and so says more like a i in the moldova fernando gago. I don't know if you remember him playing. Yes we remember for an end gago. All right charlie came at the same time yeah. A com presence on the ball sees the field. Well great anticipation but you can only do so much from that position from atlanta. It's the next phase of the game hundred percent. Don't have that so incomplete. Let's say for both inter. Miami atlanta united. We'll see what they can do one pm eastern on. Abc is being a protest three pm right after that. Just keep it on abc portland timbers seattle sounders. This feels like an opportunity for the sounders. Somebody said poster is to post drives the timbers at home and timbers fans not going to be happy with me saying that but cdl trends coming off a trip to us teke teke. Yeah i know about his back and other things that are trending right for the timbers. Outside of that result but seattle sounders are a at this point. Looking like an early juggernaut. That doesn't always last to me. And i pay me to say this. Feels like a moment for the sounders. To exert their dominance. Let's say on national tv okay. He didn't pay you to say this but you know he's dancing behind the scene. He is loving it. He is loving. I might get some royalties for that. Actually just like some trickle down. Just start getting checks for like fifteen cents for monitor but you know it was surprising to me is kellen row being inserted into the lineup. And that's the best. I've seen callum row luck in five years wright played. Us and gulf right he. he looks refreshed. And it's almost like the perfect addition to the sounders team. Someone who can play a variety of different positions box to box can cover ground. We've seen what i think. The seattle sounders style and approach has done for. Let's will bruin who. I don't think what would have the same effect on too many other. Mls teams but with the seattle sounders setup he thrives jamar also looks like a little reinvigorated from the initial benching to start the year. I it's hard to root against the sounders because they have a lot of like awoke players and characters but ruidiaz. What a what a player to do all that you know without a ladera peak this team. This team has You know everything written all over as far as being a dominant force again. Once once again this year guess as his golden boot all right. Yeah yeah. I should've election was his mistake. This real quick for this match up for portland. Super-rich was suspended. Andy polo came back from quarantine. So we should be in. Decent shape played last weekend. Got a few minutes mid week. You'd assume baena probably comes back into seem as you said above a coming back from injury. So i think portland has the ability to rotate some players and still stay strong. What it'll be interesting to me is i- questions you park. And montreal's ability defend one v one and who follows will bruin or is it chara coming back and covering his space and then how do they deal with raul. Read this the way seattle's playing no one else is playing so it's a new challenge that you have to deal with for a back line. That has looked shaky to start the year and they've brought in some great quality in the attack from the fullback position. But maybe not so much. I was said what happens when seattle overload whether it's with brad smith or it's with roll down and if ladera was back and he's drifting that left hand channel like without brad smith with good now imagine brad smith with ladera drifting in there with his gravity his vision ability to pick that passing behind and admiral don buzzing around still you have the two forwards with their movement thrown people off mean. We talked about monday. Show me culpa basically from doyle andbranch metzer like. They've figured they've figured something out. It will be interesting to me to see how long other teams take before they adjust. Because you got to adjust to what they're doing right. You have to game plan for that and try to find a way to slow them down especially those fullbacks on the flanks. Now we'll see what happens. One of the things. Seattle has always struggled with his when team really deep on them. Joe and portland will have no qualms doing that and they did it to them last year. Obviously both teams are different. No blanco jordan morris. Whatever but that i think is the first step is okay. They figured out the style. They've looked good. They've been flowing if portland comes in and puts ten and eleven behind the ball for large chunks of this game because they know they can hit and transition and be dangerous. How to seattle handle. We'll see more take advantage was opportunities even bring you get add. Get well news. Go to an embassy play center forward. Jim just just throwing it out there for you Three pm eastern on abc portland timbers seattle sounders also by the way we are doing the celebrating soccer mona the weekend presented by tire every monday. So that doesn't have to be on the field that can be off. I know the timbers fans are going to be in the stadium. And i think that was a late sort of thing that got figured out for them for this game Just super happy for them to be there. Everybody obviously be safe. Get vaccinated if you can But it looks like as we all do the right. Things and science sorta takes the day that they are going to be some opportunities for a little normalcy. And we all know that these our matches in particular cascadia are just not the same without the fans being there so Really excited for that. If you have nominations whether it be like you know Maybe a fake throwing into coaches head. Maybe you know double hoodie from certain whatever might be a great goal a great moment fans tvos whatever we want your celebrating soccer moment to the weekend by kind of hit us up at extra time on twitter. The final game of the weekend is sporting kc austin see. That's beazley's return on f s one to To kansas city. The peasley the beasley game baby. I mean everybody is going to be. Are they going to give him a chair. Made of broken bats that he's caused or something like that. Do you remember in honor of whatever. I wonder if casey we'll do something for him. What would you do. What would you want to be done for you charlie. If you're a returning to kansas city would you want to be made a big deal or would you. Maybe the way it went down at some point. Would you just be like. Hey let's just let's just play this thing my office. Fcat better than you guys. We're going to try to go show it to you like that doesn't seem like i think. Is i think for any player that spent a lot of time in a certain community with the team has done so much for an organization. You're hoping that the fans just you know. Come come out to show some appreciation for what you what you did for the club. That's that's all you're hoping for not hoping for like this big the front office stuff. You don't care about now that's kinda contrived right you're like it was business at the other day to business but from the fans you're hoping that you're just well received they have some maybe a tribute t- faux would be over the top and you. Obviously he'd be super appreciative of that. But it's more so just that they're they're saluting you clapping for your appearance coming back to the stadium. That's all your hope. For as a player we gotta get this show out quickly so casey fans can get a oh going for map. That's how ultimate and that's the ultimate kind of show of respect. If the fanbase shows you atif. Oh you're no longer playing for them. That means you really meant something to them. If it was me and i was happy. So i'm going out there. It's a really long line at oklahoma joseph. Someone got me zemun. Maybe some bread from messenger cafe. I don't have to wait in those lines. You give me that food. That's good enough for a while. We'll get your guy. Look at you know how we know. You're casey guy because you said oklahoma. Joe's this casey joe's stuff is sacrilege and i will never accept that it is always going to be oklahoma. Joe's how did the other day zemun and messenger is a great coffee spot. I appreciate that you knew that story downtown brad. In america we could go on a long diatribe about can't city. We're exploring right now. all right. Are you seeing plus game of the week where it's gonna pick one here. We want to get the mail bag so make it quick day. What do you got. I've got vancouver against montreal. These are two teams that have started bright after tough year last year. There's a lot of promise. Obviously a lot of expectations is to canadian sides. Kind of takes away the excuse of well. We're not at home you know. Neither of them are. And so i think for vancouver you got to see some thing out of the run of play. The home air back in their natural positions. You've got to see some creativity from them and then on flipside for montreal. Their best performance was the last weekend against columbus from quality from creativity. Wanyama looked. I think the best i've seen him in. Mls can they continue that role and get results with it. Three pm eastern on saturday. Charlie we've given you the game of the weekend via as they. Football are san. Jose nine thirty. Everybody's watching this get on twitter. Baby kate cal high up and running kate. Cow is the season with with an ambition with a goal to turn heads to make improvements and to get on the national team. That's evident he. He wants to take that next step and who better to learn from then. A chris waddle hausky as far as positioning tactically. Being aware popping up at the right place the right time. Because that's a skill and you think do you think he's saying to wando wando. This is how you get in behind the back line. Want you tell me about movement one touch. I'll tell you about potent wheels on productivity and people physically. Well he he obviously has that skill that you can't teach charlie davies in some of the like The balance and the burst. I could see. Maybe i'm just trying. Maybe i'm just early voting hiding for someone to say something those lines. I see that as well now. I think he. He's a great kid and obviously makes the difference for matias omega. Because that's that's such a weapon when you play a loose style you can. You can get him. Isolated one v one. He's going to hurt teams. He has the pace to hurt you. Now you're starting to see a finnish. A finished product from him. And i think he's getting cleaner in front of goal when that comes into play now as at seventeen years old. The sky's the limit on the flip side. You're looking at ourselves. Who have surprised everybody make no mistake. No one thought they'd start the season to no no one and rubio rabin has been a player that has turned heads with his finishing ability. The way he's been calm the attacking third showing composure. That we didn't actually expect from so. This is the match to me. Because i want to see is ourselves for real. Are they really going to play a certain way of style be aggressive as done a fantastic job with the squad and on the on the other side. San jose matyas omega. We know what he's done for the san jose earthquakes but are they going to be consistent or are we going to see the same thing last year up and down up and down win five one lose five one good team or the fun team. That's what i constantly think about earthquakes. Because i myself i'm gonna lose three games real quick. We'll get to the mailbox. Ever so tell them might play by made his debut for toronto at one pm eastern against new york in in new jersey rebel arena. So that one's when you'd wanna tune in for also throughout national new england. Charlie didn't do it at one thirty five on. Espn plus nashville again. That's a big one. That's the charlie davies bowl right there nashville folks Had they heard that line from ear props probably already in there in your mentions rando layoff. I sent it one. Love the kid. I'm going to support him. I love what he stands for two. He's he's upped his game to kind of change the way they play playing through them. They're trying to be creative. They're not just playing one way. Free kicks counterattack. But they still use their their their outside backs in in lovett's and also johnson alastair johnston a little too much so i think being a little bit more unpredictable than just playing side. Whip it in. That's the praise you got some praise nashville folks from charlie davies. Right here. he just that was praised. Also draw colorado hosting minnesota late night on saturday because minnesota has won a game so that could be important as what game rubbish here dave where we got a pretty good today. We already had paul of course from houston aleksic. Bottom i. he's he requested from us. Going forward he'd like most wins at each position in. Mls best eleven but then came with what we brought up on monday which was best tradition. Starting eleven obviously ocho in goal for that Here are some other ones down. Madero top for the insane haircuts. That's great. Emily tradition the harrison. Awful diego peter pan afaq year after year. You take the peter pan reference. There is good. Yeah mice and on most insane interviews not only history but in sports history stephen leonard most hated or loved player in. Mls history had mascots. Had some other players know centreback so if anyone has a good centreback tradition that they want to bring to us although maybe have one around. Cincinnati the negative way and he finished with cincinnati. The city of wooden spoons. Oh lord that sounds like a crew fan right there. If i had to guess mean i'm the man of the best eleven soccer dot com. Maybe this one i should do. I think the most wins best. Eleven could be an interesting one. Maybe we'll do the research on that and bring for the next show. We got time for one more. Let's do one more and we'll get air here. So we're going to go steve from michigan. Who says if. Mls clubs had names like other american sports teams city followed by mascot. What would some be he picked these nashville neon the toronto the houston fox's and even know there were fox's there the new england rebellion and toyonaga. Rattlers you're going to slander sly like that. You don't know there's fox's in houston has been doing the work in fly masks lot craps. What's the one in houston. Then i forgot his name. I was just going to be like. He's in he's in just diabolical. He in diesel diesel. Diesel does his work in houston humidity and heat. We can't even give this respect respect philadelphia. He's filled up so he's pulling off the like what about they like kansas city state lines and i'm just kidding okay. Close we are now on all right. Thanks for joining the show. And thanks to you guys as well a huge weekend. Mls coming up. Go check dot com for all these schedule the coverage a reminder. The biggest one among many is l. Traffic eight pm eastern on saturday on fox. Check it out on monday. We'll back with doyle and kaylynn to break it all down. Enjoy your soccer weekend everybody.

Let's get a read like she's kind of wearing a nice like blanket Felix really should be in the central perk kolding big mode. I was going to say if this had been like a fast fashion type thing. This looks like a very nice sweater. If you're gone down a scale I would have said blossom. Awesome giving me blossom time trying to do give you those nineties by I succeeded. It's good. It's very comfy. I don't have enough warm weather stuff stuff here and now and then we have rainy daylight today. And I'm like Oh God what do I pull out all your winter coat overweight fincher. It's confused. Bialik Miami Oh yeah yeah I was like watching Big Bang. Now wait a few season diving into the rain. Emotionally diving to the right like I found in Los Angeles is very different because the weather almost never matches the sadness. You're feeling inside totally We saw human I am just absolutely if I could put these in a little keepsake box if I had a little music box that that keep a day in it God only. That's gorgeous beautiful coming out of Harry Potter. He had music box that keeps rainy day or diamond. Poet that's what the rain does. I feel like especially like 'cause you guys are New York transplants. Right like I feel like especially being someone who lives in New York where the weather like does go there. And then in February you get everyone gets severely depressed and then coming here. It's Kinda disorienting. Because they're are like wait. Where is the weather? How's the weather reflecting? My feeling is just not but my theory is that's why there's all those like dark cave like bars in La away people like need to feel that we're darkness but in like there's just sunshine all the time you know. How do I find that here? They love a dark clothes. Like I love going into a place. Where when you walk out? You're like oh I forgot day. Yeah that's a fun experience as a tough to buy cocaine when it's bright bright. Yeah definitely as a teetotaler takes one advil pm and I love that he would even talk about the concept of cocaine he gets. Listen I live in Hollywood now. Things are different villa. How is your heart feeling like in an emotional place? Where are you with your friendships? Ships your relationship. You know where you feeling fulfilled you needing something more you know. I met this place where I guess I get older. It's like like I feel like I've spent my twenties like collecting friendships. I was just like I have to be everywhere. I WanNa be friends with everyone and like a pokemon like yeah gotTa Cut Jamal. Catch all my friends. It was terrifying and I did and that was great and now I'm kind of like oh I don't have the energy actually to like keep up with everyone. I like that too hard not too many friends. I'm sound like I'm like I have soberly friends but you know it's one of those things where it's like you kind of start to. I think be like okay. Who are the the friends that I can really like double down on as opposed to lake just spreading yourself really thin? That's really interesting before but it really is. There is a kind of like. Remember when you're younger and you you would. Maybe there's other people like every Improv class I would have. I would like go on. I was about to say friendster. Uh facebook and like everyone like I gotta friend everyone in my class Gets to be like you're as old as I am. Also facebook is now a fascist companies. Say Too right now. It's just it was like to even click even on a t to look someone and then click on whatever that thing is now friend. Just say friend at Oh yeah a friend asked to do that is too much. Yeah I kind of like friendships shedding in your thoughts. Maybe is because of the whole like Social Sean media thing that we feel like we have so many like your friends you know and then and you know actually what's happening in their lives in a way that we haven't before so you do feel like if you're catching up with and yeah and then you can be like wait. I need like who were my actual like Ryder round. Like who can I you know but my thing was sort of actually is. It's hard for me I find. I'm utilizing people on instagram. That commuting is my new favorite thing because what I realized us from is for a lot of people to see them like with their parents or to see them on vacation feels actually really weird invasive. One time talk. Show now on Notre Momma look like. Yeah it's weird well and especially like if say like you're kind of casual friends with someone who posts a lot all of a sudden you know no way too much. Yes as opposed to like you know maybe your good friend. That doesn't post ever. You'd love to know what they're up to like. I don't I can't no this I can't. It's yeah I I do live to mute. But here's an to see that's my truth. Birch God yes logo he typed actually. It's that's really good love to Byu. Yeah but as a nasty to like being an actor. uh-huh where you are because to me there's also other layer of when a lot of the work you do involves being surrounded by people all day. Whatever do you also find on the kind of at the end of the day even though it those aren't your besties? We you still just been social surrounded by people. Yeah exactly and I feel like I'm Lincoln. Outgoing introvert uh-huh so I like love people. I love to be around people. But I'm like exotic after being on set all day. I'm like exhausted even if I didn't really do anything because I'm just surrounded by people like like that was a lot. Yeah Yeah there definitely is that need to like. I Dunno like simplify. Yeah power down power down. Yes and that's what those rainy days early good for. How do you go about? Do you actually actively shed your friends or callback. We're good different honestly. A lot of our listeners listeners do call in about friendships that and and there was. It was jarring for me in my thirties when French's would naturally end 'cause I've I've had friends since I was in kindergarten. Yes and those are still friendships. And Yeah I was GONNA say cherish have you in different. Maybe this show. Yeah yeah some of us we live different lives so it's difficult to totally but it it was jarring then when in my thirties friendships will just naturally end for whatever reason no like not a bad one. It's not like there was like a blowout or anything. Yeah it's just like diplomas blow. We're going going in a different direction genuinely yeah. I think it's really disorienting. especially if you have a key you like if you have friendships that you know you have your childhood best friends and you're like well that's been fine like still have those friendships like. Why is this one that I thought was you know okay like suddenly not working anymore you know and I think I wanNA Put out there that it's like okay to move on from friendships that non lake. You know like I feel like the first couple times that happened. It was really disorienting in really like sad but I really think it's actually okay. You know what I mean like. It's natural to kind of be like. Oh you're in my life for this period and not at this one and that's totally fine. If someone makes it from period to period you know that's another catch cycles cycle to cycle cycle then like then that's great and then later exactly out of your down though. Yeah yes do you actively or is it more like a a mutual ghosting. I'm you that's that's a good question. You're like hey you know break. Ah Breakup before that has like a strip. I've never had a friend break up but I feel like it's one of those things where it's like. Oh maybe this person said something something hurtful to me and I'm not going to reach out to them like for lunch. You know like if they reach out to me. Maybe we'll get together but maybe it's not like Oh. I see three times a week later. Dead in college you know. I think it's one of those things where it's like whereas before I would let go of a lot of little things like oh we're not gelling perfectly but I just really want really I really want to have you asked me frankly. I think you're so cool and now I'm like I feel like it's okay if we don't see each other all the time you know what I need or it's like it's not that big of a deal it's like you know if you're the most. La Thing started. But I see a healer question but I don't even know. Unlike General Helix neural. He'll you know Hashtag general healings but like she says she's like you're like you should only like you have to fill up your own cup and then anything overflows. That's for your friend like Nassir Relationship Airplane Rule You put your own your own mascot on for exactly yes so I really responded to that of like Oh if I'm drained and then I'm like I have to see this friend or she's GonNa cut me out of her live. I'm like I think now I'm like I think I'm okay. Okay with you know give you time to myself versus like you know and then the friends that like are there and are like Oh. It's fine that I haven't seen you for a couple of months. Can't wait to catch up. I'm like DOTS. What's that sustainable? Thank can link you know. Let's go back to this.

There's a lot of energy you know what I mean like older white women out of Turquoise got a beating Yup but then also I people oh there yeah what's going on there so we'll I'm mixed my mom's Jewish which all my. Oh Oh still so. There's a lot of Hispanic people I would say. It's like eighty five percent Hispanic from. I'm like thirteen percent white two percent everything else me and this other girl who was like my best friend in in high school we were though she was also also half black and then there was one other black fully black. I think in the school maybe not maybe to do. They give you a hard time. Did you have any her rages witch the desert yet no honestly and actually me and my this friend. We had this conversation. Recently it was kind of great and also weird growing up in New Mexico. Mix I I think because everyone saw that we had brown skin. They just didn't. There's no question. Okay it was just Kinda like well whatever no one really like thought too much about it But also no one really asked us about. I think it was kind of a double edged sword because we were just had brown skin. It was like Oh you fit in. You know 'cause everyone was pretty much the Brown and sold plan. Someone's someone yes exactly and and everyone's just used to that so there aren't there aren't really a lot. It's not like like singling you out you know but also there's also not really a black community. It's probably got more questions about like wash. You got a pocketful of dribbles. Yes Andre Yeah or like why does she have onions in her Song Tao now. That's the question now is a question. Yeah it's it's book luck the fire. We're learning slogans. Shaming of the brand already. Did you ever go coming out of that though. I'm just curious the Mexican racial moment you were having a moment in your life. Did you have a moment in geological terms geological term. Yeah did you then like once you kind of left you know. And then as you started to encounter more people who are like what are you very distinctly that episode of crazy ex. Where in my life to look I was like Oh this home from fully? I was like you know as you get that more in life. Yeah you you ever go through this legit people ever kind of make you feel like ewing acting black or doing the readable hoax or something. uh-huh definitely yeah. I like minored in African Studies College. I was really trying coming back here and then I was like. Oh I'm just like I. I realized I was like I'm going to get way more mileage out of just being myself I think then like trying to fit into this mole. Like where am I you know I just I just need need to like just fully. Just be black. And that's in my blood. I can't I literally can't stop what it is and so like you know. I think I kind kind of reached that I kind of after College College. I was like very V.. Confused wait what I was trying to be in. There is like A. It's like like the black community and you had this hip hop theatre class. What yeah and it? I mean a lot of great people came out of it like I. I'm trying to think like do you wish he was in that group like he was the Indian friend. We'd like a bunch of people were like Lake Aac hip-hop pleasant and I think I tried to audition for or whatever I'm like do my first rap and I was like this is not. That's not my brand the right. I had to write my own rap. Yeah I think it was more like that poem that you said earlier and the teacher was like okay. I was your flow. Yeah Yeah not great. I mean I did learn the rap to Waterfalls yes for me that audition or another edition and that's fine. Yeah AH finest low flow moment that I've had but yeah. I think it's like you know colleges for a lot of things I was like I went to Nyu News. I was just like Oh my God like like meeting. All these people do time doing kind of being like where do I fit into all of this you know and like yes so I mean I still bill I think just forever people be confused by my face. I just have to accept thia kind of be like this is me that people are going to be confused and I mean the what for you were you. I mean you grew up in white spaces going adult white space white space. Sure you're truly waterfalls. Because they had me wrapping waterfalls seventh grade hot song it would come and they gave her the microphone phone and so I had to learn it by default. There was an expectation that I would know it right like a spotlight comes giving her the microphone. The way people would like the Knicks city dancers at burn about Mrs and it was always this assumption that I could dance like okay. I know the twos fours right. Okay I know who ooh I have them but not like movement at all and it was always that expectation to do that and then and then you get to college and then other places what was like I wasn't black back enough all right. There's no yeah. No one's confused about who I am like black people would often talk white. You Ain't this year whatever. Yeah and so. It's always been very interested in reading enough Audrey Lord. I'm not reading enough audrey who is funny because I was in the Indian like book our show or do whatever number music black friends. What wrong yeah? I do feel like especially. I think there's a time we've all grown up our age. I think people are just. There's no I don't get less of this. You're not black right. I feel like people are kind of different ways to exist. Yeah old yet. It's more like just be who you are so I'm like okay. We're not you know I could very stressed out about it like I was thinking about our wedding and I was like Jesus Andy. I'm not going to be looking out to a sea of white whiteface about that. Yesterday I was just like when you get married. We don't know yet but I know it's not true. We have a deadline yet. Anniversary is next March before. Then we're getting hits on the tenth. I don't have to change and I. I was just talking to my boyfriend about that about how it's like. How like you have to anniversaries then? And how confusing that depending on how long mutated four and then all of a sudden you have this other randy hit engine too. That's too hard. You're doing it right. Yeah it makes you feel that the link I I think it's I think it's definitely like I think like black excellence is like at just this all time like it feels like it's so deep and right now And so I think there is. This need to be like wait right. I'm excited about I'm excited to be black and I'm proud of that and like not trying to kind of hide from it. No but still like there's like a certain way Like the way interbike culturally. You're like Yup culturally the thing that's like a now you know what I mean democratic or the natural. You're not doing Louis. Every single person has their own way of doing everything like every single black person is completely lately different. And so it's like you know. I don't think there's any one right way to do you hear Vela perfect Beautiful poor play as to work. Okay we're GONNA go to a break and then we don't come back now to Sean Novella. And where she's at. We're you're going to help you scandal. Okay so we're GONNA be right back you being listeners K.. Guys Naomi here to talk to you you about native personal care products okay.

I went to actually boarding school in Michigan for two years of school because I thought I was going to be like a concert pianist. What so I? Yeah Yeah So. I majored in classical piano arts boarding school and then I was like. I can't do you this why I think I'm just I'm just like I like people I like talking to people and when you're doing classical piano it's just you in a room home alone and I've like no no no like and I you know I I love. I love piano but I wasn't like oh I have to practice. I WanNa on a practice six hours a day. which is what I think is like how many when you're in school for it right? Would those laws. Yeah what is that is how many hours a day you know. Well I mean it's up to you but in like a the people who were doing really well we're like weighing up early like waking up like six. Am To not before Breakfast magazine practicing at lunch practicing at dinner and practicing after dinner so probably six hours a day. They were doing it so and I I was like barely doing to nothing I can do to before I would just like atrophy and You know and I would always take these like theater. Classes like minor league. I love doing that back home in New Mexico and all of a sudden I was like. Oh I just play piano here and I had gotten the scholarship dollar ship and I was just like I'm glad to be at this awesome school because the schools in New Mexico not great your Larrikin southwest. Yeah the meth capital. I think New Mexico is like forty seven or something on the public education. Yeah it's it's not great so Oh yes so. I had gotten this opportunity to go and I was like my mom really wanted me to go and I was like okay. I'll do this thing but then I was like. This isn't me for a theater. So that's how a lot happening on enough voice. Thank you guys who who you. Oh God yeah I I Love Chopin and I love Bach and Debussy doesn't make a lot of ladies actually zero ladies. Well you have to go into the modern era right. Yeah Yep I honestly I I'm. This is so sad. I literally can't name any like off the top of mad. I'm like I don't know any like classical coming on twitter Intel female modern composer. Of course I like your meredith. Monk's your oh I love meredith monk like but not a lot of pianist classical Do you have that ability all summer here. Like so like if you're at a party and there was a piano piano and just be like fucking tickle the Ivories and all I could do I play the piano when I was very little and then like stopped but I was obsessed. You always see that you know like in a movie where someone goes to the piano. And then suddenly everyone gathers around and they've created a moment. Oh Man Yeah I in. My moment is almost always with titanic we. That was my favorite movie whenever it came out yeah and I was obsessed and learned the theme song and for some reason that has stuck in my head more than like anything. Yeah they they have a couple classical songs that are still there fully Lincoln. I have some just like little chunks but like for whatever reason titanic. I'm like I got it for life. That's a good one though. I think everyone in the room know that you'd be bringing us together. What I'm literally the best go you ever have piano and then just making something happen? Why is it that someone could go play piano beautifully at a party and it lake ever really impresses people and it really brings the party up whereas if someone's playing guitar all of a sudden everyone's just singing wonderwall about it? Oh God you're stealing focus and right now I don't know I don't know I think there's something about the nature of the piano. Oh that's also associate that guitar thing with college and like Dude Campfire Campfire moment around one. It it's true. What is it about the the species have pianos? You know like so. It's it's not something like it's not like old like you know game. Yeah like Sean brought his guitar. Everyone coming like you can just kind of be like. Oh a piano weird okay. Slide right hand man. I love the idea of like a weird creepy dude like halls a piano with you now but just like a little truck and then brings it out At Party Sean. Yeah all right. You're ready to answer some questions. Yeah I'm excited I just one I'll say this is a doozy. This comes to us. I don't know if she wanted to be anonymous. So we'll just say sign off line which is Sousse Sad. Step mom of bonus on on west coast so this comes to us by email from sad. Step Mama Bona son on West Coast Andy and Mabel and squeal and prime and beautiful guest of Ella. She news so where to begin. ooh My my husband and I have a blended family. We raised our eldest boys together from teen years on both are in their early twenties. Now our eldest just as in the army which is rough having so far away he is with a girl who is head over heels for and who seemed very sweet when they stayed with us. I maintained a text relationship and chip mostly with her parentheses. They've been together less than a year less than a year. She's the stepmother. They've had a few trouble spots because of of an overly involved ex she has she has an overly involved that now the sun in her dealing with that okay and she wasn't open with our son about why they were still. Oh having contact my chalked it up to her having come from a difficult childhood which I won't go into because the more details the more. I can't keep this anonymous anyway. Our Son is being deployed early next year and has been talking about getting married as there are benefits for them if they are married before he deploys which is okay. Fine as long as you've sorted out the whole accident established health communication. What we're talking for a long time parentheses hours about this other guy situation? He told told me she was pregnant. Oh Okay I wasn't allowed to tell anyone his step mom but my mom senses start tingling or whatever her and I asked if he was sure oh he said she was quote showing so definitely unquote. I still have my doubts because she pushed out her belly Ali many times when she was staying with us to be funny. You want to see if you're pregnant you wouldn't like push your timing wasn't draw picture a a face on your tummy. It'd be like too much more info. He gave me the more something seemed off. They were supposed to have of an ultrasound but she ended up going to get one without him over the weekend that they were having a fight and he really does want to marry her but he said she kept kind of pushing shing the getting married before he deploys thing starting. She's pushed she's pushing pushing it off. Yeah pushing it off. Starting to feel fishy right guys. Just wait I'm a roller coaster. She and I talk untaxed mostly tax because people call my texting machine protecting texting which so. I texted her and asked her to send me a picture of the ultrasound. She delayed for a long time and said she would find the best one that the doctor emailed her which is weird because is usually they give you a printed picture right then but okay. Finally she set one but it was cropped. I had my doubts opens the date eight. I had my doubts so I googled. three-month ultrasound and found the Jersey sent me but on cropped only six images down. Oh God you guys. This shit is so crazy own my holy. I'll be attaching pictures to this email. She did. I saw the picture that she was said. and Google are exactly the same. Oh my even the the exact picture even the woman's womb has the the exact blackspots one even looks like God exclamation point like she's like a Rohrschack test in the look the exact same. Oh my that was my commentary. The baby's faces the same. The League even just a little under the baby's back as a sharp white line that ends in a point so obviously and I called and texted him her stepson immediately and sent him the screen shot of her taxed. And what I found. I've sent him a screen recording comparing the two photos macoute. He said that he can't just go around accusing her of something like that but that he would get an ultrasound a sap I followed up. He just is vague. He says they're fine fine. I eventually told his dad. My husband because I'm super worried that he's with a fucking psycho. He almost flew out there to talk to him about it. But then we're like like what's he gonNa say he's an adult he's a grown man and he's in love with a Wackadoo Wackadoo. I already decided it would be going too far to involve as as mother. She is in a tight. Personality would probably fly out and get in the middle of things there for him which I love about her but can't betray his trust. And I don't know that it would matter anyway ultimately. He has grown to the point where he can sacrifice lifers country which is a real possibility in a couple of months. I love him so much. Just as I do my other sons and it breaks my fucking heart and makes me so mad to think of someone hurting him in any way I know. I can't pretend she isn't psycho and continue relationship with her but this means not getting waiting to see him at least until he realizes what's up but Willie ever. Oh I'm just not fake like that. What do I do stats? That Mama Bonus on on West Costa my car. She says yet very happy Patriot subscriber. This is epic like this is an epic truly epic vic letter. I can't take it so funny because you said you were like we have a we have a question coming in a doozy and I was telling me and you know. Oh you how we have delayed dude. I see why because I'm like I don't even know there are so many layers so many layers to that that I like the second. I'm like oh it should be best and I'm like but I also gets gets their side and really tough. I only know this from watching my I sister when she first started dating. Dated some real losers Eric. If you're listening I think I think we were all on the same page with some of your high school. Oh boyfriends and my parents the way that they dealt with was they gave her space because if they just went and said no no. You can't person she would've gone around back. Probably made them right. It didn't stop her from dating but it also I don't think she like rebelled spelled right and so it's really difficult. Like how much space do you give someone. If they're dating a lunatic right. I mean it's also hard because I mean I don't have kids. I can't imagine the responsibility. You feel for happiness then their sense of wellbeing and so if you see that they're literally with a psycho person. Yeah I can see that you were just want to just put an end to it. But I don't know I mean my kind of my my first instinct when hearing that is like two yet just like let it all happen because especially with like I just as a rule of thumb like I feel like if you ever say anything bad about someone's relationship it can just completely backfire on you and all of a sudden maybe say they ended up being with that person for the rest of their life than they can't be around you you because they're like. Oh you disapprove this relationship and then all of a sudden you're a reminder of all the bad things in in your part and this person's partner and all all of a sudden you don't WanNa be around them so like I don't think that she should risk not having her Stepson WanNa be want her part of their lives by throwing down the gauntlet. Ah Right this person's evil right. Have you ever had a friend who was with somebody or use somebody that your friends didn't approve of. Have you ever had that go down. Yeah I feel like I've I have more been the friend that's like doesn't true but like I just think you I think anytime you say okay anything I've also okay I will say like I've I've witnessed A good friend tell another like another one of our best friends to leave to leave of her. Yeah you're Herman and it. And now they don't talk about that anymore. was like she wants psycho due to like infidelity stuff but now now they're still together. She won't open up about that stuff anymore because she knows that he's this other. Yeah exactly right exactly. So it's like it's like it's that hard thing where you're like you don't WanNa sometimes if you put those boundaries down by saying you're with this person that I don't approve of you can end up actually losing your relationship right and especially because it's a really tricky because when you know someone whether it's relationship or just like any unhealthy situation. Yeah it can be so hard to draw that line that kind of intervention. where it's like? I'm going to cut you off if you don't get it together because a lot of times the very person needs to know that they have other people wanna they do hit that wall. They know that there's an out there's a couch. They can stay on their people who like them. You can't be too harsh if you want them to be able to walk out the door right because then then say your stepson and this woman like you know years down you know. Two weeks later they split up. Then you can be like she's aside. You know like like fully holy let it out but until then I mean probably your steps on knows. That's the thing I'm just like. Don't you think people always know even if it's like deep deep down like I don't know what you mean I'm like maybe maybe not but I know you have an inkling that maybe there something or maybe because to me it's best to the I mean just in and of itself that she would not let him be at the ultrasound or use the moment when when they weren't connecting to have the ultrasound is like funky and then also this like you went from somebody pushing it off. Yeah let alone knots. You know still having this relationship with your ex that is not clarified right right so there's so many levels I yes I feel like this. The son he must know. There's something is off. It's so true I think especially because you know what is. He's probably what she said. He's like in Twenty S. I imagine right where it's like. You do have to learn for yourself you have to you have to. Unfortunately you have to experience the thing going bad and being shitty to know how to get out of it to know how to see in the future and avoid it and like all those things. You can't just leave because your mom tells you right. Can I quote my healer one more time all allow it. She said this thing that I think is amazing using which she was like. Don't rob anyone of their rock bottom and I think that is so true because it's like I think sometimes we wanna be like I want to prevent this person. Listen I care about From experiencing their rock bottom with just wet like this you know he finds out the you know the mother of his child is like cheating on Emmerson. I know or whatever whatever it is it is but it's like that's his rock bottom to experience blake at the end of the day becomes like you actually can't experience that for him as much as you want to. You know lays it just I on Levin Zandt I mean what is going on the only way to show the Rock Bob she really Sounds Great. She's amazing you've talked me out talk. It's it's different every time I recommend healers for No matter no matter who you are in the Lua therapy or it but yeah so I would just say that like and I'm sure as a mother stepmother regardless someone who like cares this for this man like you know you're probably probably wanting to take on that pain for him like you've just it's so hard you just can't I just think you can't you you literally like no matter. What like saying like you? You know you intercept and you're like you're dating a psycho break up with her and he does like also like yeah help long term that person you saying look. You're not helping that person long term. Here's here's the other question that okay so you give the person space. I was trying to think back to my parents. Like how do they deal with some of these. This scummy via quizzes that making us allies they were pod. People weren't pot wasn't like she was dating like a sewer creature. I Yeah I guess no one. I don't know she dated anyone this do push to Sad step mom. If if she's still in her stepson's life How do you deal with this person going forward? I would just fucking shutdown deal with with a rat average when she was saying like how do even being in I think she said that like how do I like be around I feel for her. Some must be so hard to would be like. Just swallow everything and then you'd be like sure everything's great when like you know it's you just knowing your gut that it's not well I think there's also some I don't I'm not really into also this person texting with stepmom so much less than a year and it's a little too much I would say maybe boundaries or good. Yeah Andre are always good like she's not in a relationship with this woman right like she actually doesn't have to. Yeah like text on the daily you know or kind of be like you know what's up with her like she can just be like we all see her at Chris Brown up keep it is limited limited late and simple and let him figure. Oh it's hard to know. This woman is carrying her step grandchild a picture of allows along muddy water. I mean she'll she'll know in. And if you months right well hopefully but I hope that if she is truly pregnant that the person who is the actual father. Yeah we'll know that they are the actual father. This is okay. That's not fair to either personal. Look if this is a hoax. I'm I'm wondering what this woman's endgame is. Why fake this in the first place why I thought I thought I thought it was going towards? She's Gung Ho on getting married this. It was like an old school kind of lag. I'm pregnant I guess we have to get married now. Ties way right but it doesn't seem like that so I'm so it just seems seems like that. There is a weird hoax going on. And I don't know why the woman why her stepson like what friend perpetrate the hoax is she mentally. You're saying like in a few reason I'm saying this is like you said like Oh in a few months and we'll find out I'm like no so if if she's Peng off some kind of weird she'll be like Oh. I lost the child. Is it like a Munchausen by proxy type thing. Where Ashley uses this? Or what's the one where you abuse someone else to get sympathy as much as my project is is. Is there something else going on here than just there's like if she if her step son's girlfriend is genuinely mentally ill that's that's that's slightly dangerous and that was like what do you do. Then how do you actually. Oh my gosh this is more than the three of us. Can you truly can ever even know this woman's motive to try to get into. It can be so hard because I think we want to try to get into that person's head to in some some ways find a way to make sense of it right by like what is happening. Yeah you can't even work from that when you're dealing with somebody you have to kind of stay in the the sense of okay. Well okay. What does this behavior? How does this behavior affect me is a behavior that needs to be changed? And it's like to me. It's like what's happening here is it. Sounds at the very least. Her Stepson is just being manipulated jerked around someone at the very least even if this person is pregnant with their child. I like the way they're going about it like again even just the idea of again. Let's say it's all on the up and up what it is to get an ultrasound like I'm mad at you so I'm going to go do this. Thing without you. Know what you relate to somebody even telling the truth you know or also like being like an. I might be talking to my ex-boyfriend dot question even of Blake. I'm about to be but I'm also maybe like still into my aunt like it's it's at the very least Some something not graze happening in relationships. So that's why I e take all the other stuff out of it may be that can also be part of the conversation. She has with her stepson when he's in a mood to hear it and that's the thing that's the thing with moms to right because you know mom's like no one everything and then they wanna tell you and I know for me personally. There are times when on open to being told yes times when I have not yet when I am not. It doesn't matter how right you are. Yeah No I. Can't I know and it's like when he wants to talk to you then it's like that's a new kind of opened up to me. It sounds like dona to`realize. Don't focus on all the extra stuff we don't no. Yeah Day in the fat yes they what we do know yes and then how does this behavior make you feel well. I was kind of like yeah. I think that waiting till he he brings it up is really because usually it's like the person will bring it up. Yeah they'll always bring it up you know you don't actually have to you. That's not your responsibility you know. And then when they bring it up like yeah focusing on you like I hear about you. So how are you feeling. It's not really about the I mean it's about her because she's the one doing it but kind of like how is that affecting you're never gonNA hooping like she's trash. Yes concerned about the person that you care about you. Keep it keep that side of the street clean boundaries he's and openness. Yes Yeah and never never rob somebody of their rock bottom healer okay. This question really took me for a loop. We do take a break. I feel like we just got back but we also went to him back and so we're taking a quick when we were coming back answering some more questions with Vela.

I feel to vote because I don't have a problem with the voicemail. Hey I'm Dan of the project and I believe in I love you guys who knew me but I need some advice. They been together about a year Here's Mexico and currently living and working but he's from Columbia and we were like no casual because goes near. He's been out to go back but then I don't even we love and he's obviously the best relationship even been supportive loving all that so. I don't know what to do 'cause obviously they don't want to be on in order for that to change. Someone's gotTa make a huge commitment to move to another country the other person and it's hard to make that commitment without knowing how to beumer actually together so no and he gave me on the topic. was He greatly appreciated. Thanks international lovers. International Lovers Long Distance Lovers of V train. Do you have a relationship. I was yeah relationship L. D. Release I was and I I I really feel for her I also I have so many thoughts on this actually so got him. Here I think there's a lot of positives in long distance relationships because I think a lot of times when you're dating and you're like right next person you a lot of other things going on that can kind of cloud your judgment and long distance although it can release suck give you this weird opportunity to just get to know the person like just I in text Justin you know phone calls or video charts or emails or whatever in this way. That's so specific like in this way that you wouldn't get to know them otherwise I think it can be a really like strength like I think you can really get to the bottom of what the relationship is really like in a really fast fast way like you can be like well. Okay like if I'm going to leave my friends at the bar to come call you before you go to bed. I must really care about you. You know so you're kind of like I don't know what kind of I think it cuts the bullshit like really fast. It kind of is like Oh like I like you. You know it's not like oh I don't know if he's going to Orleans we'll meet up tonight. It's like all of a sudden you're like what do you actually feel. It's really hard but I think a lot of people can do it and have done it successfully. It's helpful to have rules link. I know for my relationship that was long distance. We would try and do every three weeks. See each other every. Yeah 'cause things start to get really weird after three weeks things get really weird all about so you just start like you start being mad at weird things and then you're like I don't. Who is this like you start? You don't have a frame of reference for them you lose the connection of the FAIRMONT's yeah. Yeah exactly and and then it's also weird that readjustment period. When you see them at first it takes a second to be like? Oh you're not just a voice on the phone you're a live person. You want to touch you so but I think so. I think it's it can be really hard right but I think there's actually like I don't think it's a reason to to not date someone. I guess is what I'm trying to say. So but but see. But you're not advocating one of the moving. You're saying like keep the kind of long distance yet. I would say yes I would say my advice would be. I don't think it spells out the end of the relationship nation chip. I think you could find out pretty fast. If you want to continue it and how much time do you want to put into it and then try and see each other a lot. Don't don't just not see each other. I think that's not good. I'm not. I'm not advocating for that. You should see the person that you're dating just buy yes hot takes but I'll be here like you know. I feel like I talked to someone. Recently there was like the first two years of their marriage they were long distance but yeah I think people do it and it can really bring you like stronger together. I do think eventually you probably want to be in the same city low. Probably the same. How that person the apart you know partners with but I do think to start off a relationship? It's not the end of the world for it to be long distance. It's interesting you say. I mean like I definitely hear you. NFL like the last advice is episode. Couple that they were married but both like tenured professors or trying to be tenured and they were two totally different university. Heart live in different other on weekends. Maybe but they were married but they were like we're happy but everyone is giving us shit. How do I deal with everybody assuming limitation real rant? So I give it it can work but I also think there is something getting to me when you're a long distance and this give me my personality I can still curate your experience of me so I can keep you at a distance or or if I'm in a bad mood unit I mean like yeah might go to call you when I'm sad but if you don't pick up or whatever like if I talk to you later it's not the same as having to see me in the darkness that that were like New York. Remember that like literally we would be like video chatting Andy was living in. La Reading on his show. And and we'd be like video chatting and literally literally like I would have it totally frame of like sure. The apartments clean and wanted to reveal literally just surrounded by takeout containers pan scandals just around you and the rest of the apartment building insect. Yeah so that's of course I would but we've been together long enough enough that we went through but even then I remember being very afraid before you left. Like he's going out to Hollywood and he's going to forget even after probably two years in and three years in three right so we have that so. I can understand how you know when you're still doing the get to know you act that distance distance but it all depends on the personality because I understand not like me and do not try to micromanage people's experience of them. No but that's I think that's I mean that's the whole Internet. I mean Nice literally just next to a person. Yeah is that you can do that. Yeah so yeah that makes that. I totally get that. What about the international so she lives in Mexico he lives in Columbia? Yeah what if they decide okay. One of us are going to move. How do you make that decision? -sition the more adaptable person of like the person with the least the least ties to where they are. She said she's working in Mexico initially from Mexico so she could be the one where it's like you know if he has family in job other. If he's more tethered than she would be the one who could go. Oh right but I think it's important even do that kind of thing and it's hard but I would say like whoever's making the move and I know moving is hard and it takes a lot but I would advocate not moving with that person right away. I oh my gosh completely completely yeah like have your own may have phone life exactly and like obviously like you know. You can't ignore that you're moving for the arson but as much as you can make it about yourself and be like okay. I'm getting my own apartment man. I'M GONNA have my own job. I'm going to seek out my own friends so that I have a life. Yeah because I think yeah you can just easily get swallowed up by the person that WHO's like come come to me and you become code appendix to a place for you. Well living in Mexico. I'm open. She can speak some Spanish and then she can go to Columbia NBA. But like it'll move to a place where somebody howdy where you're like. You're literally the only person I only only person I can talk to. I don't have a job. Yeah and you know you can then get mad relationship. Can't deal with the pressure Asher now of that one person being so dependent on the other. Well I would say I think you guys should be in love and keep dating my listeners. You should be land of play but I also think that you know maybe the mortlake whenever you guys visit each other like get to know each other's friends you know really Lee Lake start to like explore the cities that you live in on your own for yourself and likes so that then if one of you guys move it's not like you're completely alone and You know they're in this relationship. You can have a ninety day. Fiance situation going. I love that. Show Me Tuba this religious. Show the fuck. It's like this is not a a good idea but yeah I would advocate for like seeing just like go visit each other and like each other a lot because there's literally no substitute for that. It's like I'm in a room with you like yeah. Did she say where she is in Mexico. I can't remember now. Where flights between uh-huh oh? Yeah I would also advocate for splitting plane. Ticket costs so that it's not just like I'm paying for myself or like this person's flying me out like Nisshin. Mia Mutual thing. Yeah Yeah if you're going to do this or like all pay for this flight but like you get yeah you know all the dinners or something like it needs to be Lincoln and equal cost wise because I can also breed resentment horse of course and especially because if that is such a big pretty relationship Asian ship. It's not about someone's getting money but the but the spending of the money is how you show someone you want them around. Because that's the only way you can do it in that scenario. Exactly that's the thing I'm most. I'm never like when it comes to data and all that kind of stuff you know the ways you early on until you kind of get to know a person. I think part of the reason why people tend to kind of there's so many rules right who pays as who does what becomes until you know a person the only ways you know. If they're interested in the time they spend in the money they spent. You're right there is the only way to know. What was your guys this when I first early early experience? A big part of our big thing because like Andy was unemployed for a while We've literally take take turns being employed but in the very beginning of dating it was chill. I didn't need moved to New York and two weeks later. Financial Agile crisis happened. He lost the moved to New York. And then my friend was going to get me a job. He worked for a company that wrote reports. They did due the diligence on hedge fund managers job here and so I spent my days doing yoga. You're listening to democracy now in my apartment and leaving because I had zero money zero dollars with that was the thing wasn't that again. I don't need fancy dinners by any means but I got insecure at some point because I was like well. I'm coming to his house and hanging out. Yeah does he actually like me or imagine. Imagine the bishop coming over to the high. 'cause you couldn't town because I come to your house then it's like where's your like investment in me service rolling on like you know there's a lot of songs there's a lot of just like you know people being link. I need my man to pay for me but I do think. That's Ah what's at the heart of that is literally just like. Are you putting time in for me. It's not actually like Oh. I need to be like covered in diamonds. You know but I do need to be covered in diamond. That'd be great but it all it's just like I can see that you care in this way and then I can move forward right. No other women. I wanted to come over over here by the way flights from Mexico City to two hundred and fifty dollars. Okay we can do this all right and you can do this play. I don't know if it's split if it split. This can be done if you in advance if the next time if always before the before the end of the visit you get the next one. The next one up de roundtrip. DART RT.. Well let me. It's not gonNA work. No it should still. You should still give it a try. I what a lovely time. Thank you so much way to spend the rainy after now that he's coming in when you're the greatest.

I Know Dino: The Big Dinosaur Podcast

1:08:43 hr | 3 months ago

Three new sauropods from around the world

"Hello and welcome taino dino. I'm garrett and i'm sabrina and today in our three hundred twenty fourth episode we have a bunch of news including three news or bods i was gonna do four but these three are pretty intense and very interesting. I'll take it. We also have dinosaur of the day vela franz which is a lambie. Orient had resorted and we have fun fact but before we get into all that we want to thank some of our patrons for helping to keep the podcast running of i. We have a brand new patron named jim metro don. I'm really tempted to pronounce it gye metro because it's spelled like john jay but i very much doubt that their name is john. I'm probably jim. I like geometric. Yeah it's good. And also i wanna thank florida fossil hunter who is not a new patron. They've been a patron for quite a while. But i just haven't thanked them before. Does good name rolls off. The tongue is some nice alliteration. There you know where fossil hunting exactly rounding out. Our shutouts are cameron. Rhino source christine. Trent kara hall michael bradley. Diplotic kate and leah and real quick. I just want to mention something about our survey. The biggest request by far was that we'd be more conversational and we are trying to make some changes in the beginning of the year. But it's difficult because we also want to be really accurate which means we wanna follow some notes so we don't misspeaking end over over-generalized things or give the wrong impression about something but yeah we're trying to be more conversational to make the show a little more interesting to listen to and we also have a new goal when we reach two hundred patrons. We're going to do a live. Qna on youtube which was also one of our top requests on our survey and given that we're at about a hundred eighty now. We're only about twenty away so you can help us get there by joining our patron though close yes. Hopefully we'll get there within a month or two when we get there. We're gonna start with our patron questions to make sure that we don't miss any so if you join. Our patriotic will get priority queue. Nasa competition for our youtube session. So definitely consider supporting us on patriotic if you can and if you like our show yeah and again. Thank you to those who already do so if you want to get in on this. Qna then got our page at patriot. Dot com slash. I know dino so jumping into our three new pods of i. We have a new species from an existing genus of sewer pod. Omay sorace. that's a good. It is a pretty cool one mentioned toward okay there sorry. Pots day ios drew. I should also mention. This article is written by chow. Fan and others and published in historical biology unfortunately is pay walled but lenin j. sword. Yeah so that makes it a little better. Omay soros was serena's dinosaur day in episode one hundred and twenty-five nice but since that was one hundred ninety nine episodes ago several years at this point which even though dinosaurs were around for millions of years. We seem to be going at lightning speed and discovering new ones learning about them. I think at the time you said that there were six known species of omay sorace but i think there are actually seven. There was one that has covered a couple years before that and then adding this one. Now we're up to eight. Somebody's in a single genus. Which is a lot for a single genus. A lotta times. Dinosaurs just have one species per genus. Yeah eight is pretty crazy. Might be the most. I'm not sure it's kind of hard to check none. There's been so many changes and especially the genera that were a wastebasket taxes for a while. That's true yeah you'd have to go through and see how many people agree that things are dubious or not it gets nailed down which one has the most. But this is definitely. I would say in the top ten of most specious dinosaur genera could be could be or at least maybe top fifty and she'll be more conservative with my as it could be a top ten for a momentum toward it might be. Yeah probably who for momentus horrid be being conservative so a real quick background on omay zora. Since it was like four years ago when it was dies or the day the genus omay sorace was named back in nineteen thirty nine and the type species is omay sorace jim shannon and that's after jingsheng city which is in the shashi meow formation coming up a lot. It's a very fossil lifts locality the shashi meow formation must be the closest thing that china has to the morrison formation. Sort of the best way. I can analogize it or analogize or eight. So the nahla guys. I don't know how to pronounce that. But the chassis meow formation just like the more information is full of sorrow pods and lots of other dinosaurs. It is about ten million years before the morrison in the late middle jurassic but again the timing of it is a little bit less clear than the more information and it has a lot of momentum towards in it including several species of omay source. This new species is omay sorace pashina again. the omay sorace comes from the existing genus. Omai is after amount may or but they spell it with an amazing source of a additive. Notice that that's got like l. May like so. Mount omai is near where omai source was found and mount may is one of the four sacred buddhist mountains of china. It's also called the place of enlightenment and at least that's what it is. If you translate the mandarin directly to english this new species who sean. I is a reference to a buddhist deity. The samantha bhadra in chinese is pushy on and just fully explained. The some monta bhadra is a local bodas satisfy and merriam webster defines a to safa as a being that compassionately refrains from entering nirvana in order to save others and his worshipped as a deity. So may sorace is named after the mountain was found in which is a sacred place for buddhists and then who sean. I is in reference to specific buddhist deity cool. Yeah it's all kind of linked to where it was from so it's a clever way to make a place named source placenames without it literally just being the place names in both of them. The type of omay sorace puccini is mostly articulated. And it's a pretty good holiday type. It has several very long neck vertebrae series. Expect it being the venture sword. Yeah the longest neck. Vertebrae is seventy one centimeters or two feet four inches long. Wow as a single vertebrae it's the length of my torso. Amazing is just wonder all my vertebrae are like. You're just one part one big nick crazy. Yeah or at least my vertebrae are. I'm taller than two foot. Four inches right. You'd would be roughly three vertebrae. Yeah about i mean. This is the longest vertebrae. Some of them are a little bit smaller by about three. Vertebrae is about how big i am. Just as a bonus. Fun fact aside that to four inches is over twice as long as a giraffes extremely long vertebrae and giraffes and humans have the same number of neck vertebrae seven whereas omay source had seventeen. Take a giraffes neck. You make the vertebrae twice as long. And then you like double and a half the number of vertebrae that gives you go may source pushy. On is neck. His next. I of that exhibit. We saw the time travel. That felt kind of like a ride in japan. That room where it was like a time travel experience at the kitakyushu museum Yeah and they've got him mentioned source and it's amazing how they can it's animatronic and it can move its neck. It's the animatronic is mostly neck because it sort of off to the side of the neck is so long that you can't even tell that the body is mostly just drawn on the wall. I can only imagine what it was like for these sorts of dinosaurs to be moving. Their necks is pretty awesome. So in addition to the neck vertebrae they also found an almost complete series of back vertebrae and three large segments of tail vertebrae for a total of forty six vertebrae in the find and just roughly. I think that's out of about seventy so. We're talking about roughly two thirds of the vertebrae of this individual. It's pretty good. yeah especially the like also are pods. The tail ends in little tiny vertebrae. So they're missing some of those but they have a decent chunk even from pretty close to the tip of the tail. So we've got a good series of vertebrae from a lot of the animal and vertebrae and sewer pods are really useful for naming species in addition to vertebrae though they also found a mostly complete front left leg and foot. The foot is also mostly complete a little bit of the hips. Some ribs partial helium which again as the top hip bone in both dinosaurs and us to partial femurs and a partial tibia and extremely partial fibula. The fibula looks like just a tiny little spur on the side of the tv is small in other words. What they're missing is the skull the first few neck vertebrae most of the hind legs and most of the hips. And a little bit of the sacred. Let's see better out the skull. But if a lot of the skeleton the yeah the humerus and femur are pictured with a lot of plaster reconstruction on the overall shape. So it's a little bit hard to tell what the bone by itself is. I have no idea why they just reference in the paper. The humorous has a bunch of plaster on it. And there's nothing about like where they got it. Why it's like that. I kind of assume that this got put up in a display and then someone realized wait a second. This isn't just a known omay sorace species and then wanted to describe it and you know looked more closely at it. But i'm not sure. I couldn't actually verify that anywhere. Fortunately it has quite a few unique features. It doesn't seem like they're obscured by the plaster. The ratio of all not to humorous length is about point seven which has relatively high in other words. The lower front leg is relatively long compared to the front leg so the humorous la times as most of the leg or at least a large portion of the leg. But in this case it's less the case it's a little more even It's probably the easiest unique feature you could see while it's alive because most of the other things are sort of buried in details of the bones that would be covered by flesh but you might be able to notice the difference in the leg if you could probably measure it at least measuring the true tranquilize it with ten x the elephant dose. And maybe you could. Hopefully it doesn't get injured. One other feature you maybe could see. I don't know maybe. It affects the flexibility of the neck. Or something is that the neck vertebrae extend farther towards the base of the neck then on other species so you can see it when it's a skeleton. I don't know if you can see al was alive or if it affected the way moved or anything. But that's the main other difference. The vertebrae look very similar to a single vertebrae which was assigned to omay source when it was described in two thousand eighteen and the authors retroactively basically assigned that one to omay source puccini. Because it's like. Oh we found this whole skeleton and that one vertebrae you found matches with nicely so will include that one and file genetically in case. You're wondering and you're a huge source fan. Its closest relative is omay sorace. Tianfu insis zach. They lived the closest together. I think most of these lived closely in time. But that's just when you the lodge and you're looking at all the details of the vertebrae in different bones. It's the most similar to omay source. So that's pretty cool. Find i mentioned swords. They are really awesome. I think my favorites or pod type. Maybe after the celtics sewers the armor. 'cause you know basically like kyle source keeping the new sewer upon train rolling. Got another one from historical biology. This song was written by veronica. D. is and others. And it's named garrigue titan. And i should point out. Garrigue titan is only three letters away from garrett type it's the only dinosaur that starts with g. r. Yes like my name. That's pretty cool. Does that make it a favorite. I like it. it's a cool one. The name garrigue titan just like the name garrett doesn't have a great meaning it means like a small attic snack grade garrigue also is not super exciting. Garrigue is a type of drought tolerant shrub. Land which is common in the mediterranean and is pronounced garrigue in french or garrigue guy in ox sedan by the way oxygen is a romance language from southern france. Which is what they specifically say. Garrigue tighten the name is based on you. You're not gonna find much on what garriga means in oxygen because it's not a very widely spoken language But if you translate directly from town it translates as dry thicket. so it's the dry thicket. Titanic or is that because of where it was found. Yeah so that drought tolerant. Shrub land is really common where it was found and so they named it after the type of environment that it's in nowadays. Basically if garrigue titan was found in california it would be called chaparrals titan because chaparrals just basically english or spanish. Maybe word for garrigue gets the same sort of small drought tolerant. Brush that mostly turns brown in the summer. It's not the most exciting landscape around but us. Californians are very familiar with it. The full name is greek titan. Marie and marie analysts is a latin word for southern so it's from southern france they named it southern and they named it after the garrigue because it was found in a dry area so another creative place name place name. He pretty much. It was found in on provence specifically the exxon provence basin. Which is as best. I can describe it in or near the french riviera. The french riviera doesn't have well defined boundaries as might be a little bit too far from the mediterranean to technically count but it's in that area in southeastern france. The area in question has more titanic or bones than anything else who is mostly dinosaur bones and then of the dinosaurs. It's mostly sewer pods. And that's pretty much. All titanic source so lots of titanic source from the area. The area includes the titanic or a scene gonna soros which was actually found in the same dig site so obviously right up upfront. You should be wondering is greg titan. Just a seagoing source. Because they're found in the exact same place. And the too tight handlers. Do have a lot in common but there are some differences for example in the neural spines of the neck vertebrae. They have different shapes. There's also like a neural canal is larger in one the other little details like that again. The vertebrae in pods are very useful. For naming new species jumping ahead a little bit Genetically garrigue titan didn't come out as a sister tax to a single source which is really maybe the best evidence you can have for them not being the same dinosaur because if they have so much in common that they come out right next to each other on the family tree. That's when things can get lumped easiest but in this case the Ginny put a scene gonna sorace as sort of a first cousin to titan whereas ampelosaurus actually came out as a sister tax to garrigue titan garrigue titan was excavated from two thousand nine to two thousand twelve but unfortunately unlike the last night or totally disarticulated So we don't have that nice pretty view of how the bones all lined and also less complete. The holiday type includes the sacred and the partial left helium. It's much less complete. Yes so that was all they picked for the type. I think because it had the most unique features. And also since. It's the sacred several vertebrae fused together as kind of in a little bit of a block. So they could know that it was all definitely one individual. Yeah i shouldn't say definitely but most likely weird from bone washed in into an exact lifelike pose next to another vertebrae from a different individual but they did refer some other bones which they think were also from garrigue tighten that included another left liam a neck vertebra to humor i and the right isky 'em but then they also tentatively referred some other bones including a cervical rib which is a thin neck bone. The right humerus right and left femur so if you add. All of those together is pretty complete. But you might not want include the tentatively referred once. I'll get into that a little bit more later. But there's a reason they call the tentatively referred because they're not that certain. Yeah they're weird. It actually confused me so much. I had to read this article a couple of times so that i could figure out what was going on because it. It costs them. Strange size estimate things but real quick in case you didn't notice again. No scholar teeth were found with this one. And for completeness from the late campanian of about seventy five million years ago so much much more recent than the last sewer. They describe garrigue titan a small to medium sized. The bone from the smallest specimen appears to have come from an individual that was about four point four meters fourteen feet long again. This is the titanic or his fourteen feet long small. One is little bit unusual. Yeah it's very small sacks more on the small titanic sore exactly. The largest one though was five point three meters or seventeen feet long little bigger and the weight estimates. I think were like one point nine to two and a half tons. I guess it's heavier than you get for theropod of that length but it's still pretty small. They described them all as sub. But there's a slash in between sub an adult which isn't something. I remember seeing before and they found yes s.'s. In all of them again and f s is the external fundamental system which shows that the bone is growing really slowly and they also did an analysis to see what stage of growth the bones were in based on what the ostiense looked like and they were all in the last stages of development so they don't get much bigger no they don't and elsewhere they referred to it as skeletal mature so i don't know why included the sub it because i think everywhere else would usually call this. Just adult skeletal. Insure usually call an adult has to do with the tentatively referred fossils. I think so i. And maybe what they're saying is it hasn't afs but the bones haven't fully changed into their final most compact and like developed state so even if they're ninety five or even hundred percent of their final size their bones haven't fully more or less rearranged into their final state and therefore you could maybe say it's not completely an adult but so many dinosaurs die young that on the scale of dinosaurs. I would probably consider these to be adults. It's not like these individuals are going to grow another meter to. They're pretty much at their maximum size. And that other dinosaur. That was found in the exact same area. A scene ghana sorace was around the same size or a little bit. Bigger the return to an earlier larger estimate of eight to twelve meters or twenty six to thirty nine feet and say that it was probably more like five to nine meters or sixteen to thirty feet. So there's a little bit overlap there and size this an island back then. I think all of europe was kind of island. But i don't know if there was island. Dwarfism happening here are not to figure out the rough maturity of the dinosaurs. They did histology on to write humor. I a left humerus and femur so based on the fact that there are two right humour. I you know there's at least two different individuals there and all the bones looked like they were similar in age. They didn't see any groceries here. They all looked relatively the same. I think there were between twelve and fourteen on the onto genetic scale. That's been talked about for four orban's before because they don't always have lagged so you can look at basically the structure of the bone instead and quantify it that way and the original paper only went up to thirteen. Thirteen was like pretty much adult and these are all twelve to fourteen. So they're pretty much fully grown which is pretty useful because it gives you better redundancy. You're not just looking at individual variation to humor i to base it on which is one of the good bones to base your species description on and we can look for common features between the two and name it based on that rather than maybe something odd about an individual now the really confusing part though they talk about another maximum adult size in the paper and they say that it could have grown up to twelve to sixteen meters or thirty nine fifty feet. Long cl- a bit larger. Yes really confusing. Because we're talking about these adult bones that are from specimens. The max out at five point three meters seventeen feet long. Where is the fifty two foot long. Vote coming from. And it comes from those bones that are tentatively referred but could actually be some other genus. Exactly so they based on the largest humorous and the largest all alner and they came up with these really large size but they did say to your point this could mean that several tax are present in the material here referred to garrigue titan or they have a lot of variability among individuals. Yes there are some dinosaurs that have allowed variability. the authors came up with two possible ways. There could be the variability they said. It could be sexual die. Morphism like maybe one of them's a male or female and that one's way bigger right. That's so hard to figure out. It's quite the claim given that we haven't seen that with any other dinosaur ever proven and this is a pretty sparse find. I don't really think they have enough evidence to back that up. Another possibility they throw out there is that it could be pathology affecting the growth. Maybe making one of them grow extra big or the other one. Stay small you know. Maybe there are malnourished or who knows what was going on that caused them to be different sizes more just individual variation. There are humans that are twice as tall as other humans. So maybe they're dinosaurs. That are twice as long as other dinosaurs but something weird is going on here. It's not just a normal. All of these are from the same genus. Sorta find that. I'm used to before the bottom line is the late cretaceous of europe seem to have quite a variety of small titanic stores which is cool. I really liked the small towns over to it. Further confirms that if i could have a dinosaur today it would probably be a dwarf sewer pot. I'd be afraid of ankylosaur that it will get startled by me and break my legs or your whole body. Yeah and even like notice or is there just bumpy. How nice they would be to pet friendly. Yeah i think they could be all right. It'd be relatively easy to feed to. I think if you had enough land they would eat a what that's for sure but that's why you get to version As like the suburban dinosaur pet as opposed to like the full on farm ranch think eighty titanic dwarf or not needs a farm or a ranch and the new space news more land than we have. But i think you might be able to get away with a few acres is covered injuries for just one story about snow now. It's true that people have done some estimates on how much dinosaurs would need to eat. But you're right. This episode of i know daniela is brought to you by hellofresh hellofresh. Lets you skip those trips to the grocery store there. Meal delivery service and they are america's at one meal kit that's because they take out all the meal planning difficulty including trips to the grocery store which has great in this era and it also saves a ton of time too because you don't have to plan the meal they deliver automated selections to you can also go in and select your own meals if you want to pick your own meal specifically each week and you can also specify locale or vegetarian or pesca -tarian or even carved smart options. But even better than that is you can cut down on grocery bills by saving up to forty percent instead of shopping at your local store and that's in addition to all the time and energy savings so i just wanna personally say that we really like hellofresh. It comes in these prepackaged bundles. So you don't have to worry about which ingredients go with which recipe or measure anything at all because everything's pre measured.

We want to learn about specific topics and we really enjoy the great courses. Plus we think our listeners will as well Very watched a few videos and they're really informative entertaining and they break it down in a really easy to understand way. Yeah definitely one. That we personally recommend is mind blowing sci. The first episode in particular is about dinosaurs and it has a really great animation of lines of arrested growth. Or how we can tell how old the dinosaur was. And it goes into a lot of detail about the austrians and how the bones grow. I think it's a fantastic demonstration. That's always hard for us to explain on the podcast. But you can get it in video form with the great courses. Plus that course mind-blowing signs is created in partnership with scientific american who are also well known for their dinosaur papers. We talk about them all the time of this show. So it's no surprise that they have a good or one and it goes into all sorts of other science topics as well. Yes we want you to try.

The letters i k. d. for dino rounding out our three new sorbonne's. We've got an article written by rafael royo torres and others published in the zoological journal of alanine society. And this one is open access. So it's last but not least they never are zorba other never least every time you've got a bunch of dinosaur news. Yo say last. But not least i think it's we all dinosaur news. That is true we do especially you injure love of sorbonne's So this last data center is named narendra sorace teflon. I but the paper isn't really about arinda source. I feel kinda bad for noor source. Oh what's it about. So the authors said quote we visited every institution with identified or purported theresa hours in spain portugal france the uk germany the usa and argentina. Which is crazy. I mean the so many museums. Yeah in so many places it's kinda like when emanuel shop did his sore pod study in twenty fifteen true. This is also pod study. Yeah i don't realize he went to four different continents. I thought he did and if he didn't go there healy saw pictures Yeah very thorough but really it seems like they were trying to do was nailed down to resource. It's a group that was originally proposed enacting to six sort of an out group of early mid jurassic. Dinosaurs sorbonne's that don't fit within us or powder which are the ones that everybody knows. You know the big four legged long necked. Everything's titanic stores are all use or pods so as brackets. Horace pretty much use literally means true so are pods so the pods. Most people think of when you say sore pod. All those orban's i just mentioned are also in neo seora apopka with in-use or pata but this one is a non neo. Soro pod use or pod so the use or pods i started. I think in the very beginning of the middle jurassic. Maybe there was a little bit in the end of the early jurassic. So talking about like one hundred and eighty million years ago ish and then within ten to twenty million years the neo sewer pods had totally taken over as a subgroup of us or pods so these are us or pods but not neo or pods there. Sort of like an out group of what became all the sewer pods. We know and love and a really weird group and that's why it took until two thousand six to name them because they're in this sort of strange position and we now call them to source so the authors were trying to figure out what is going on with these sorts because no one had really done a complete analysis of them and a few more had been found since they were named the just to further emphasize. How little the paper is about marinda. Soros the name arinda indus source as a dinosaur. Genus isn't mentioned the most in the paper. It's the third most all right after lucia. Sorace that the most the Horace and then they're indoors. There's more time spent comparing lucius auras to torres than the new titles over that was named the paper. There's a lot of papers though that accomplish multiple things. Yes it just kind of funny. Because i'm used to papers where it named a new genus. This is how important this new dinosaur isn't. It's almost like a footnote like. Oh yeah we we notice. There's also this new data sore again to bring back emmanuel shop in his twenty fifteen paper heating set out to bring brontosaurus back though is also just kind of a foot so narendra source was actually discovered back in nineteen zero six in. I hope i don butcher this. But anqing ghana valenica in northern madagascar. I almost got that wrong. That's basically how it's spelled at least and as a fun fact from the world factbook. Madagascar is about four times the size of the state of georgia in the us. Wow it's also about two and a half times the size of great britain not all the only the first thing is from the world. Africa came up with more. And it's closer in size to texas than it is to california. I always think of madagascar a small me metoo and full of lemurs. Yes but i figured. I was probably wrong because africa is huge so next to it it looks small and then i wanted to see like actually how big is it and two and a half times. The size of great britain is no slouch. It's a large country with several different dinosaur localities. So this one's from the north west basically of madagascar it's from the middle jurassic about one hundred and sixty eight to one hundred and sixty five million years ago. Which is about what you would expect for this weird group of showers and originally it was assigned to baath rio lists madagascar but that's no longer a valid dinosaur name. That's what arinda source at least with these bones were originally described as then for about one. Hundred years was basically ignored in the literature. Very minimal references to the material were made but in two thousand eight it was described as a basal use or pod within truce horror pods which is where it still is and then in twenty sixteen it was more specifically classified in Oria which again not a very commonly known group it includes 'zibi and hurry source. You might notorious if you're in europe. Both of those are european from the jurassic but Horace is sometimes called the largest european dinosaur. It's about thirty meters or one hundred feet long those front legs that are longer than the hind legs. So it's a little bit more of a upright stance usually depicted. That's what they tend to do when you know because otherwise why would you sort of have that inclined angle to the back. But it's not nearly as upright as brackets orser draft titan or anything like that. It's still just like sort of a little bit upright. It has a really long tail. Though about half of its length. I would say his tail. Wow it's kind of an interesting dinosaur. That i don't think has ever been on the inverse of momentum source. Yeah exactly. I guess diplotic is like that too. It's more tale the neck but diplock is might be a little more balance than this one. Not alterra source are big. Though moab sorace which is from the cretaceous of north america is also torius or so. They didn't just go extinct. It's you know. The family tree of any group of animals is never that simple. So even other an out group that later evolved into truce or pods and neo zoro pods. This maintained its lineage. For about forty or fifty million years into the cretaceous and made it all over the world to because we're talking about madagascar europe north america. The definitely got around. Say they'll yes normally groups don't just disappear except for around sixty six million years ago. Yeah did i mean they do eventually disappear because again we we have this one from the early cretaceous of north america. But we don't have anything past that so it might have disappeared then or maybe we just haven't found the fossils yet. Really what i meant though is it's never as clean as like this. New group rose and everything from the other group disappeared except for around mass extinction events. True and in case you're wondering moab assuras was more in the size range of garrigue titan than it was like anything even remotely largest pretty small at least what we think garrigue titans size range was the could tighten individuals that aren't tentatively referred. The ones that are in the type so again that nineteen o. Six find has gone by several names. But it's now called new arinda. Sorace taverna naraindas. Ortis is after the narendra bay. Where it was found and tannen. I is after armand tannen. Who published the first description in nineteen o seven. It's pretty fast turnaround founded in nineteen o six polish eighteen o seven. Yeah the holiday type. Include tail vertebrae almo- tibia fibula and pubis so decent find. But that's mostly what they said about our indices worse and then they talked about all the other therese overs yes and theresa's more generally so the real thing they were excited about for this paper was what they refer to as a rosetta specimen of low. Sia source that explains why the most mentioned in more yields exactly so previously they just had tail vertebrae from the way i understand it and they went back to the same site as the holiday and para type and they found some skull pieces and a bunch of teeth and some more post cranial bones as a result they now have some pieces that kind of fill in gaps in connect different toreadors that we previously couldn't really see how they were related and thus the rosetta specimen the key find seems to be that Sores consistently have what they describe as heart shaped teeth with groups in the roots. Yes so heart-shaped. It was hard for me to mention is imagining them upside down. So i was thinking of heart shaped teeth. Kind of like our molars they have like bumps on the top like the top of a heart to flip it upside down. So as a point on the side that sticks into the mouth and the heart like the bottom the little bumps for the the heart rate are closer to the gum. Like a drawing of a heart. Not like a organ heart yes. Yeah heart shaped like the shape of a heart but the shape of geometrical. I guess so. Maybe a better way to describe it is that it looks a bit like a neg- onto those are also heart-shaped if you think about just shark teeth in general they sort of have a heart shape to them but they're a little more bulbous so on these torius ortiz. There's more of a bulb. I guess by the gum line better for eating plants. Yes i suppose there's just like less laterally. Compressed in general except where they're wearing down because you know they rub against each other which doesn't happen so much with shark teeth and they're also less pointy and third less saturated. I think they said somewhere pretty well preserved and didn't look like they were worn down and they still barely had any situations which isn't too surprising for pod because we think they mostly just wanted to shovel food into their mouths and weren't so much with the chewing there are also some of the teeth that were more typical spoon shapes and then they were heterodox with four different shapes so they kind of ranged in that spectrum of heart shaped to spoon shaped spectrum somewhere partially partially spoon shaped in between. And that's an interesting spectra. Just i guess from having a shape to being more round might think spoon shaped round interesting. It's still there actually still pretty pointy. It's more like how a spoon is worn down on one side So that kinda smoothed on one side more flat and on the other side more bulbous down but yet it's not quite as pointy on the top soda rounder sort of in profile file genetically speaking. Because i was a main aim of this papers sorta nail down what areas or were which ones were close relatives and where they fit in the whole us or pod tree. Lucia soros came out as sister tax to therese or us and again torius. Auras is that one which may be the largest known european sour- pod or dinosaur for that matter whereas -narinden. Boris was more of a cousin. I would say. And it's actually in a more basal position so they described it as the most primitive torius or so. It's it is quite important. Marinda soros just bad. It didn't get its day in the in the sun is there might be future papers about it through. Interestingly with their philology. If you've followed curious orders obviously we haven't a moncia and indus showed up outside of therese aurea in their analysis and those are two that are had been classified within curious ores they refer to low sorace as a giant specimen which is fitting because it's full name is low sorace gigantea but they didn't say much about the size of nar indus horace so i resorted to the supplemental material to try to find any bone that i could compare it to another bone to get a rough approximation of at least if it was in the same ballpark of one of these other dinosaurs. Also even in the supplemental material marinda sawers came after low. Csr's number three versus number four of the supplemental material. It's not what the paper was about. The title even is origin and evolution of therese or dinosaurs drew set by means of a new rosetta specimen from spain. That tells you everything you need to know very true. it's all about las. Csr's so desirous had a fibula length of seventy four centimeters or a little bit less than two and a half feet and that's compared to a hundred and seven centimeters for an incomplete lucius aura. So is actually longer if it was fully complete and that's three and a half feet so it's about fifty percent longer giant. Yes neronha sorace. Its tibia diameter was about six enemies. I should probably say wits because it's not actually round. It's more flat on one side so this is the minimum in the narrower. To mentioned is about six centimeters are a little bit over two inches but that might not even be the thinnest part because they didn't have a complete tibia that's compared to thirteen centimeters or over five inches for low. Thia sorace so. It's well over twice as thick. Which gives you a good idea that it was a much heavier dinosaur so that might be another reason. Narendra didn't get as much airtime here is because it definitely didn't have a claim of being the largest therese or just the most basal seems like the main result of their analysis. Is that quote torius. Oria is thus known from the middle jurassic in panja diversified in the late jurassic in ghana ams laura and dispersed during the early cretaceous to north america. So they accomplished what they set out to do. I don't know if they set out to do anything other than just live their lives but they were pretty successful. Oh i meant the authors of the paper coach. They said had to do which is find out more about her. I've always dot as or focused. Yeah yes very true. They found out more about data. Sort about therese ores. I'm sure that's very source. Just live their lives. They accomplished what they set out to do to ensure at least some of them did other news. There is a lot of talk this last week. About the four year old who found a dinosaur footprint and wales. Did they find out what they set out to find it was. She had her father. Were out a walk so they probably fell more than they were expecting to find it. Lily wilder and her father. Richard and they were on a walk at bedrick bay. That's in the vale of glamorgan. And if the vale of glamorgan sounds familiar. It's because we recently discussed it in our dinosaur of the day panty drako which was episode. Three hundred twenty one. So this footprint. It's two hundred and twenty million years old. It's ten years long. It's probably from quote unquote slender animal. That was bipedal and carnivorous sounds. Pretty dinosaur he yeah. The fossil has been excavated the footprint. It's now at the national museum cardiff. Apparently unfortunately shortly after the find some people have tried to remove rocks from the area and damaged parts of the site where the footprint was found. Stop at people. And it's now. I think it's a protected area because they found this footprint less could hopefully people don't mess with the too much. Yeah but at least that footprint was already taken away and stored somewhere safely. Yeah it is hard to remove all of the potentially useful footprints area though There's also been some debate and criticism around making sushi soares wrecks the official washington state dinosaur. And no gary. It doesn't anything to do with the actual dinosaur Act of all the problems with the. They've had something else while the debate is it's taking away. Focus from code. Nineteen related issues. Is there so much covid. Nineteen stuff for them to deal with that. They don't have time for this. I think it's more an issue of they have limited time or a little fuzzy on the details but maybe a limited number of legislation that they can put forth and so wanna priority. At least some people want to prioritize the covid nineteen. But there's an argument. And i think a good one that two pushes forward is that you can show kids like the fourth grade students who i rode into name. This state dinosaur that a government is for them and is listening. Yeah i mean. I hate the idea of sushi source. Rex being the officials dinosaur of washington. Because it's not a dinosaur. But i mean it's a dinosaur bone but it's not a valid name for a dinosaur so bad idea but not for this reason although i don't think they should make sushi source. Rex could be a silver lining dot as or doesn't end of the state. Come up with a different name. Put the can't name it it's just an unidentified theropod We'll see what happens. But i am always in favor of down source and i know i'm biased. I mean i like dinosaurs to but you should name state dinosaurs after dinosaurs. Not after made up words there are many dinosaurs that went by nicknames for many years and then those nicknames became the official dave's but this is like a theropod bone that they think washed up from mexico. It's not not gonna find the rest of the skeleton in washington and then give it a name navy. Stranger things have to hold my breath. Sure sure with dinosaurs. Lots of weird things happen all the time anyway. Move onto a less controversial topic. It's a museum news. The sam noble oklahoma museum of natural history has a new exhibit dinosaurs land fire and ice which. I think we've talked about this exhibit before because it was made by the minnesota children's museum. Yes so quick. Recap land afire about t. rex and triceratops land device has trod on and ad montessori us so it's like the l. berta is the land of ice in this alaska thinking. Oh interesting yeah. I guess they were up there to. The exhibit is open until may twenty third in japan and maybe outside of japan. I'm a little unclear on the rules. But you can rent a full-size skeletal replica of the macau are- dinosaur also known as come we source but it was known as the macau ru dinosaur for years before it was named community source kamali source. Now that's his real name. A the replica is at habet. Sue museum in macau on hokkaido in japan and macara development of industry and nature organization Trading house handles this rental service. Which i think is technically free. It sounds like you pay only for delivery and installation fees. I'm not sure what the terms are. I don't know how far away you can be. Read this replica. And we rented. I kind of doubt it. A delivery fee would probably be expensive. Yeah it would be. And i don't know how long you can rent it for either us. Cool though yes. A one of the officials from the trading house said quote. I want the dinosaur to help break through the stifling ambience deriving from the new corona virus outbreak. So bring the museum to you yeah. Dinosaurs are always a happy place garrett. I got news about a state dinosaur that you won't find controversal the so massachusetts state representative jack. Patrick louis revealed in a livestream in the last week that the state dinosaur massachusetts is paducah sorace holly kansas. I can't remember if that was the one. I was favoring or not. I didn't vote. Because i figured i don't live in massachusetts so i shouldn't vote but they were both good options. I remember so which one is paducah source. That's the one that professor talbot found in one thousand nine hundred eleven and she's the first woman to have named and described dinosaur to seal faisalabad. Oh yeah yeah. I think that was one. I was going for for that angle as well as the fact that it wasn't the pod so power morph. That was just trolling a little bit. I see the livestream is pretty fun. It was about a half hour and they had mark mcmenamin from mount holyoke college and fred. Benny from amherst colleges banenky museum and they each provided some background information on both dinosaurs paducah source in anke source so thought it was a nice way to let everybody know i was lucky to have caught it. I just happened to read the article that they were live streaming at the time that they were live streaming cool but we have linked to the recording right in the show notes. Yeah that's cool. i like that. They really engaged with all the massachusetts since civil to the whole payroll massachusetts wisconsinite. Yup but they got them involved in the process which is cool and picked a good dinosaur. They did. They had to good options unlike washington which has zero good options. So just wait. Anyway there's a new game moving on dinosaur park primeval zoo. Guess what that's about garrett. I'm guessing it's a park builder game where you have dinosaurs simulation game. It's now out in the uk rolling out in other places soon. It's described as you re home. Your animals have not sure where you get them from in the first place. What do you play the sun. It's out on android okay. It's mobile game there. Until maybe there are a lot of park. Builders i always think of playing park builders on a computer but i think it is mobile. I guess i'm old younger than me. Anyway you prove from your park which used to fund your exit expeditions and then you get more dinosaurs. It set in the south pole is a research station and your park in the south pole. Yeah they said up. There's research station. I guess that's where you're rehoming your animals from although i don't know why you're taking them from the wild but anyway i'm very confused. You think it's meant to be more cute than anything because it also looks to green and warm to be in the south pole. Is this supposed to be in modern times or are we in the mesozoic wherein imagination land. Okay kager you're building a dinosaur park modern times isn't it time of humans coexisted with tyrannosaurs. All bets are off. Yeah that they're really cute and the dinosaurs when you get them they come out of 'cause you're in the south pole and they have these playgrounds to play on so many questions way you have to play. And then maybe that will answer them in jurassic park media news. Somebody reimagined the trailer. And then they replace all the dinosaurs with peewee. Herman why it's pretty funny as may five pixel right and a lot of pewee laughing maniacally and then popping up from hiding places being called a clever girl i see and they have the scene where the jeep is driving away at. Its peewee chasing about a bicycle Pretty clever yeah. It's pretty entertaining. You've got a link to that so that people can watch. Is it okay to talk about. Spoilers for camp cretaceous or should we push that another week. I guess it's okay because this'll come out after we've watched the last season. And i'm just gonna cover my ears because i don't want the spoilers. Okay so recap. We're only halfway through guarany season two so far and garett his literally covering his ears and trying to be far away could still here. Anyway there's a hint at a new dinosaur in an underground crowd. That's thawing out and it could show up in future can't cretaceous seasons. It's called specimen e seven five zero. I don't know what the e stands for. Maybe there's something in the show of mr haven't seen yet according to screen rent it. Screeches like a velociraptor has either a spiny tail or jagged teeth. And that's based on this image where it's behind pay class maybe ice. I guess we'll find out when we watch so there's speculation it's either spinal raptor or giganotosaurus and controversial said that camp cretaceous will eventually connect to jurassic world dominion and now of said it also garrett's safe to comeback gave him the thumbs up. Okay good. I heard something about a raptor. That was about it. So my you're covering was pretty successful dinosaur dinosaur dinosaur at that's good and now onto our dinosaur of the day vela franz which was a request from brad. The curator vr patriotic and discord. Thanks villefranche was a lambie soaring. Hadrosaur that lived in the late cretaceous. In what is now. Coa huila mexico in the cerro del pueblo formation. It was bulky it probably walked on all fours. It kind of looks like pariser office more like corre- thesaurus and it's going to be crestone. Said yes because instead of having the long too but it said like paris ralph had this fan shaped crest. Though franz was orbis only a juvenile has been found so far and that one's estimated to be twenty five feet or seven point six meters long. So it's possible. It could grow to thirty to thirty five feet as an adulterer. Nine to ten point six meters. It is pretty big house. On the mir the upper end as far as hadrosaurs got like forty feet is about where they maxed out for my recollection so bigger than some of the pods. You were telling us about bigger than a lot of them at least longer the dentistry. The lower jaw was long and slender and slightly down turned and like i mentioned it had this bony crest on its forehead. The crest probably would have changed as it grew again. They found a juvenile or they think it's juvenile lambie soaring. Skulls and chris change a lot as they grow. So the chris probably wasn't done developing i think pretty much display structures. The nose of elephants was on the top of its skull and then the snow extended backward up. Its face to fill in the gap. What yes it has. The series of passes airflow through from the snout into crest and into this hold above. Its is oh. I see so. The the snout extending backward is like the nasal passages extending backwards interesting sort of like paris. Our office where they think the nasal passages might have been connected to the to bonnet said I could breathe through and make noises. Yeah so like pariser office. Villefranche complex nasal passages could probably make sounds also seems to have more rapid growth of its nasal than other similarly sized dinosaurs. That's interesting. I hadn't heard of other. Dinosaurs impairs her office making sounds especially in like around crest. Maybe since i played trombone the trombone shape was more obvious to me than the round shape. But i guess. That's kind of like a french horn or something. So most juvenile hadrosaurs it had this proportionately large skull but for its development. Stages is juvenile or sub adult. A skull is still pretty large. And it's not clear what the fan shaped crest with four could have been to attract. I'm a surly sound. The type and only species is villa. Franz co who lens's the genus name means sailed forehead and it refers to the sale white crystalline its head which has also been described his hatchet like and fan shaped the species. Name is in honor of the state of coahuila. Dinosaur was found though franz was named in two thousand seven by terry gates and others and the fossils were first found by martha carolina aguayo when it was excavated between nineteen ninety two and two thousand one by feel crews from the dynamic international society many many volunteers and then in two thousand and two a joint expedition with utah museum of natural history. Royal chiro and museo del rio work to excavate the skull bones and they found a partial juvenile skeleton mostly complete skull the skull and skeleton were disarticulated. It took them two weeks to dig out the skull out of twelve feet of rock and soil hoof. Yeah and then. It took two years to prepare the skull and it was prepared by jerry. Golden volunteered the utah. Museum of natural history sevilla franz is very similar to juvenile carita sorus and hypocr source and even though it was a juvenile it was found to be distinct enough to be its own genus in nineteen. Eighty one william morris described question. Mark lambie sorace. Leda catis and the question. Mark is in the front there because it was not definitive since no complete crest was found. That was something ahead. i'll look. I didn't realize we sometimes wrote that through a question. Mark before the dinosaur and his description was based on a partial skull found in baja california in the l. guy oh formation engaged found that villefranche was still two different from this non-definitive lower sorace led a catis which is actually now known as magnolia twenty twelve. So villefranche is one of the first dinosaurs named from mexico and when it was named it was the first new north american lambie story named in over seventy years at the time that villefranche lived there was a warm shallow sea from the arctic ocean to the gulf of mexico and vela franz lived on lower media at the southern tip. You know what is now. Mexico lived in a humid estuary. Where rivers meet the sea and a lot of fossilized snails and marine clams found in the area so it probably live near the shore other dinosaurs. That lived around the same time please. Included large taranath sores tro daunted or the my meds and ceratops. It's there are a lot of large storms. which seems to have led to many maths deaths. There's large bone. Beds of jumbled hadrosaurs ceratopsians skeletons found in the area. That's a bummer. For them a nice for us. Yeah as the sculpture. Form of villa franz as cure dino. It's a thirty foot skeleton. Built for burning men by maria. Annella fuente is an after burning man went to washington. Dc and was on an eleventh floor roof deck for awhile. Nice dinosaur burning man you about it. When was in dc. Is these colorful bones that were inspired by the designs of the we chill tribe in mexico so we did talk about it up until that point. But i just found out that last february it had moved on cure the dino to the children's discovery museum in san jose and san jose california cool was checking out. I don't think it's still there. Oh but as i'm saying. It sounds vaguely familiar. Maybe we did hear about it in february. I can't remember we must. We should've gone But the original specimens permanently housed at the new sale this year. Toe in saltillo coahuila mexico. Nice and are fun fact. Today is inspired by valentine's day because valentine's day is coming up. So i got you a triple dinosaur fact. Oh is that my present a handmade president. It's more thoughtful than if i just bought you something So the piece of it you might remember from. Svp twenty twenty. There is a talk by emi bender and she was talking about sarah topsy and frills being ornaments and not weapons. There was sort of the dichotomy between was it a functional weapon or defense sort of mechanism or was it just an ornament the you grow for display and it doesn't really serve a lot of other purpose because frills on top teams vary a lot in between different species that show is that it was probably a display structure although it might have had some functional value because there are horned scrape marks on them might have been a little bit useful as defensive structure. So maybe i shouldn't say that there's this dichotomy of weapons versus display structures because they could always be a little bit of both horns for the record are considered weapons and not ornaments by her analysis so the horns were weapons at least that the post orbital eye horns whereas the frill was considered an ornament and another piece of evidence that it might have been an ornamented. Not a weapon is that they tended have really large frills or very decorated frills. Which seems to show that they were display structures big showy things. I've often display structures and a lot of them had either large frills or decorated frills. Not necessarily both at the same time seem like different ways to show off. You also probably remember since we've been watching dinosaurs. There was an episode with charlene the daughter on the show and she was growing her display structure. Since i guess she's going through dinosaur puberty and she's some kind of ceratops and she's got a small pro. Sarah tops. Ask frill say although it does have some epi ossification 's decorating the edge of it which prototype tops didn't have i think they also gave her earrings. Yes that's true. Maybe picking she's wearing your and also different outfits of clothing all the time and walking by peterle. Yes this is very true. Other protozoa. adopts might have been bipedal charlene's walking that's true vertical because there's a human inside the suit. This is true. But her display structure in the show is her tail and specifically like how she moves it supposed to be like how they do their mating display type stuff. It seems like they picked a feature that all dinosaurs share for the story purposes. Because it's all sorts of different dinosaur species living together and same house. Which i guess is a whole other story of how did a megalosaurus in something that looks kind of like a demetre. Don have approach ceratops offensive dilemma. Sars oh is that yeah. it's up. She's got like four drills so she's like a quad source. Yeah it did make me think. Though that maybe diplomacy kids could have used their tail as a display structure Because they were long and they have like the ability to kind of wash around like they show him walking with dinosaurs. You that being a thing or maybe some communication method signaling device especially if there was some coloration it if it had a bright tip or something you can draw some attention at the but according to a new paper by andy nop and others. About prototypes tops. Their frills were probably the display structure. And not the tail charlene and dynasty wars. The paper had a pretty funny opening. It said quote. Sexual selection arising from competition for fertilize ation opportunities which i think is hilarious and also applies to valentine's day. I suppose the competition for fertilization opportunities so romantic thought so so there's paper ahead. Three key findings the frill changed independent of other skull regions so it. It wasn't just like a typical. It's growing up and so it's slowly getting bigger. It changed independently of that. It also had a lot of variability. The frill did more than other parts of the skull which indicates in might be a display structure and finally the frill grew much faster than other parts of the skull. So you could imagine if you reach a certain age and all of a sudden having display structures is important you. You'd wanna grow it rapidly. And that's basically what they see with pro ceratops like how charlene grew her tail rapidly. Exactly yeah it was like overnight on the show. Oh sunday the just exploded out. I guess but it works in this prototypes case because they had lots of proto ceratops ages to work with. It's a pretty well known dinosaur genus. It's relatively easy to do studies like this. They looked but they couldn't find any sexual morphism. They were kind of hoping at the outset. They might be able to find a group that had a bigger frail or different shape or something but they couldn't find anything and to that effect. They point out that animals often don't have major differences when they mutually select. We've talked a little bit about this. Before but for example there are less differences with monogamous species of birds than there are with birds where one just display they mate and then takes off because the monogamous ones are both trying to impress the other one. Because they're trying to stick together for a long time. That makes sense but i. I don't know enough about birds skeletal. E to know these ones that where the males for example to do the elaborate dances with all of the feathers and everything. How different skeleton. Look from the females. It is a good point because if it's just feathers you're not gonna see it on the skeleton but in some birds the males are bigger So in the case of like proto ceratops if it was bigger just in general you might be able to see some kind of signal there although it can always if it's just size alone that can just get lost in the individual variation so yeah to your point you'd wanna see the actual structure of the display structure. Be bigger in one or the other and if it was just a coloration pattern or something. We're not going to see that in these fossils. Unfortunately so the result is the frill was for socio sexual display but the socio part of that is really important. That's like societal same root word. So it's gives information about say the age and the species of proto ceratops not just a big display structure for courtship so a display structure but display structure is can be for social signaling in addition to just sexual display happy valentine's day. Yeah happy valentine's day to you and that no that wraps up this episode. I know dino. Thanks for listening.

Giant Beef

Highly Questionable

21:34 min | 1 year ago

Giant Beef

"<music> hello usually this guy is highly questionable. This guy's always highly questionable but today I feel like I'm the most highly questionable. What do you like on the show? Today is a good year. I love talking about Steve spurrier anytime that's true me too puppy. He's so they can ride. We upset with the giants. He sounds free not that he restrained himself much when he was with the giants but he likes this new Cleveland situation feels disrespected by the giants because they didn't tell him to his face that he was going to be traded and frankly they were lying to us as well publicly saying month beforehand that he wasn't going anywhere and the next thing you know he is gone. I understand why a star our employees would feel like that is a bit of disrespect for someone you wrapped up a lot of money. In I understand why you would say disrespect me at that amount of money but what I thought was interesting about what he said was man. I was holding that brand up. I was getting us on Primetime television. We were five and eleven on Primetime television when he says he's holding up the brand of the New York football giants. If you know about the pomposity of the people running the New York football giants you know why he's no longer with the New York football giants yeah I understand and the idea of disrespect but to me that wasn't really the headline here. He says he wouldn't change what happened for the world. He's ridiculously happy about where he is and so to look back and think that the giants disrespected him. Obviously they did him a favor. He was carrying this franchise. He was carrying around a quarterback that was well past his prime and for what five and eleven as he said the interesting quote to me the most interesting quote here is when he's asked about whether he was thinking about ever playing different sports and what that would have looked like now and he said Yeah I think about that every every day in the moments that down and it just made me realize that this superstar mega athlete was down in the middle of New York City in their football team he should be so happy now being with his friend Jarvis Landry and a team. That's supposed to be good and he's going to be you star where they're not worrying about his past whether or not he kicked a net. It's a shame that New York couldn't embrace. This kind of superstar because New York has always been very good with this kind of personality and when you look at what's happened here. The Cleveland Browns were interesting. They're young. They're fun. They're quarterback might be something special but the reason that team is the most interesting team in the sport. This year is because this dude joined it. He would have loved. You stayed in the Big Apple Writer. You know we're all the action. Thomas scored the big bill only financial sector you know what I mean and she's wearing the coat them in the wing time you know worked around Times Square. What is what is going to in Cleveland Cleveland things except the Cote none of those things except the Cote Du the Lakers legitimate complaint about how can we handle free agency when you are a loser in the free agent chess game? This is how you react sometimes a lot worse like Dan Gilbert did that one time you had your entire plan blown up install because Kawhi Leonard wasn't available made it look like he was available and in retrospect. It seems like he wasn't any kind of available. The Lakers were the third choice and how gangster is that on top of all his other gangster moves that on top of everything else surprising I think everybody trading for Paul George leaving the country that he had just won a championship in to go back to his hometown. He also did it slowly enough to screw the team that plays in the building with him and catch Lebron James from behind that is a master stroke from. From a guy who never gave us any indication that that's how he did business and why is it wise responsibility to work at these teams pace. It's his free agency. It's not there's an so toronto complaining about him wanting the Sun and the moon and the stars he I went over to a team in a city the country he didn't even want to go to in the first place did everything you could possibly ask a player and brought you a championship of course he can ask for the sun the moon and the stars and everything else as for the Lakers if they thought coli live they thought they were the front runner for Kawai and held off on all these other free agents it is ridiculous lack of self awareness on their part and it's consistent with the lack of self awareness. They've had throughout the last few years you needed to go ahead and build your team and not believe leave. The KAWHI Leonard was going to come to you unless you had a very good reason to believe that nobody knows what he's going to do. You thought you did I love the idea though that Lebron might literally pass a hallway in his new home across Leonard and given the silent entreated can't win. They're either because that's all gives you ever do you respect it running beer more or less developing another move that lucile trouble I do not like that. The Houston Rockets play the way they do. This is not aesthetically pleasing styling however when you say a new move in basketball I feel like you can't even invent one of those except that he already has the thing that he does with that setback the thing that he does when he gets fouled on three pointers. That's not stuff I've seen so let's listen here and find out what this new move is. Eighty do that traveling step Giovanni everybody seizing the Navy especially especially high of liberal basketball. You gotta find ways to get better everything here. You got to find ways of freedom advantage every year and that's what I'm doing you know and it's not trouble this year. I'M GONNA come up with some more creative that is gonNA look like travel but it's not the first of all that was pretty savage of that kid traveling step back right in front of the dudes face but I'll say this you go back and you look at Alan Iverson when he crossed over people people thought that was a carry early on and then eventually maybe you got called for a few but he fixed it and it was one of the greatest moves who's in N._B._A.. History Bob Ryan told the story one time and he might tell it today on around the horn spoiler alert about Kevin McKell. We've got that Bob Ryan and observation. I sorry Bob About a work movie was working on and he said he couldn't do it because everybody's GonNa think it's to travel same thing with James. Harden people were mocking him early on about that travel by the end of the year. It was the most respected move in the league and impossible to defend. I'm dying to see what this new movies and whether or not it's a travel it's a move that will disappear about the second or third round of the playoffs. Hang Hello. Hey how are you doing. What's going on? What's going on? You think that James Harden should be banned from the happy for live life play Dan. I mean trouble move. You know what I mean. He wants to come up with an I know what's going on with. You are never ask okay Italian tired you everything. Do you respect this defense barrier more or less for wearing a championship ring from a League that never declared champion all right so the was here for seven seconds. All you remember about it is that. That it failed spectacularly but Steve Spurrier was seven and one for the Orlando Apollo's and he's wearing his af championship ring there. It is congratulations to the mighty spurrier. Is that an Apollo. Is that what that is cubic zirconiums linnea. Is that a Manarang. Can they afford the ring. Can the team afford the ring great question. Here's a little story about Steve spurrier covered him in college. I went to school at Florida. Pull them aside one day after work after the little media huddle started talking to introduce myself wasn't wasn't sure if he really knew who I was. He said Hey yeah you're that guy who wrote that column in the alligator the other day about me and bobby stoops getting into a fight and I said yeah that was me he goes yeah. I thought it was pretty stupid and I liked him more somehow. There's nothing this guy can insane like a professional. He'll I love to do no matter what he says to me. No matter how stupid he thinks back Yau wing convince you that he should keep fighting. Keep fighting because you've got tax problems which I think the only reason he is still fighting but it was fairly amazing to watch what happened against he Thurman Given all the key Thurmond said before that fight about pack yells little T. rex arms and then those little T. rex arms knocked him down in the first round and win by split decisions surprise is over a man much younger than him Thurman had looked weak but the idea that packed out could take him down and now continue his career is a blight on boxing. It's not a celebration of the guys won eight titles and congratulations to him but the idea that he's still winning affording it's not because he's that great it's because he's got tax problems and he happened to be this guy who decided to fight with a really open style yeah but manny is a fighter what he does. He's also a senator but he's a fighter right and so like at forty years old if you can do this just go ahead and keep doing it like if he's meeting a thirty year old even by split decision. It's encouraging people to say hey stay in the team and go ahead and do it. I sort of compare this to a Venus Williams situation. Manny pack yells not going to be dominant in dominate the welterweight title anymore. He's not going to but if he can find some success chesapeake can find some happiness if you can find some relief from his tax problems and go ahead and keep fighting. I just don't think anybody should say hey expect the world out of Manny Pacquiao again. He's forty years old coming up next on my cell Stevie show thirty seven and then he just wait a minute. Let me see the end of that very last hold on a second. Let me see the end of that that he's scored the third one and then just headed dude knocked him sidewise. Oh No no my songs T._v.. Show is brought to you by T._D.. Ameritrade let's is considered the secret life of the innermost nesting doll living most of her life in the dark inside the other nesting dolls. He has plenty of time to think if we could sadly she has no brain however when in a most nesting doll here's the Geico not only saves as people money but also has been providing great service for over seventy five years she thinks it's obvious you should switch because yes switching to gyco is a no brainer pity the innermost nesting dollond her lot in life time completely games a lot of rage. Do you give us topics and events and question them. Do you question if you slept uneasy bass player in the you know how good. Uh and famous and charismatic you have to be to make us consistently talk about M._l._s. last week we had this video clip when he was asked if he was better than Carlos Vela who is actually statistically a better player so far this year and M._l._S. less. There's another player in Los Angeles Carlos Vela in this moment is got nineteen goals twelve assists and his team is leading major league soccer. Do you still consider yourself the best player major league soccer for because the visiting in his praying L. Lizzy cars best twenty nine twenty nine Melissa Uneasiness Product was twenty nine where it was you were in Europe big difference all right hold on a second. I WANNA replay that again for you because of the arrogance of the confidence but what I I want you to also see is the way that he setting and how his head is because he's going to ponder this for a second. He is thinking look at him. He is in thinking mall right here and then he says what I think is a lot better than this dude. There's another player in Los Angeles Carlos Villa in this mummy's got nineteen goals twelve assists and his team is leading major league soccer. Do you still consider yourself the best player major league soccer for because the needs praying old cars West Twenty nine twenty nine says Melissa Uneasiness Uneasiness Product <hes> twenty nine where was you were in Europe all right so unbelievably. This guy arrived in Los Angeles and he says you're welcome Los Angeles when he arrives and then the first game he scores a goal that nobody in the League can store. He's got a bicycle kick goal and then against Vela when villa scored two goal did this to answer all that talk with that posture and that confidence and those killer words that took out not just Bela <hes> <hes> put all of M._l._S. because it made that he wasn't even not even good enough for him and his prime and then he does this. I don't think anybody in sports back up their words better than slots right now. He's thirty seven years old. He's thirty seven getting me did he. Just wait a minute. Let me see the end of that very last clip hold on a second. Let me see the end of that that he's scored the third one and then just headed dude sideways. Is that well we just saw. Let's see the end of this to celebrate it. Get it off me. Do you question Jake Rain. This served to be sent to three play after losing this game. We've got a tie game in extra innings here. We've got the winning run on first base. Raim is on the mound what happens it seems to have done his job. Oh come well. We could send Smith with him saying wait a minute. Why are we blaming that on rains in the whole team? What about why? Why did he get said they had to blame somebody? They can send the whole organization down and nobody would notice. Do you know what they meant still when they do that. Blame it on the rain pretty good. That was pretty good. I'll give him that one doing away. We'll salty. You Love Dwayne. Wade you know commenting. Let's see what we have here at a clinic involving. The kid what he says oh no no she's going to now take assaulting eighteen is that was that was definite salt right there. Put yourself in these situations and if you're gonNA get embarrassed do not take it out on her. Yes yes he was salty obscene going away do worst Waikiki. Oh Yeah baller that street baller. Oh wait a minute. Hey on the other kid's laughing. They're both of them. I wish he'd stop that question whether these I was too eager to get their car wash four we get to this person. Let's check in with a car washing person from last week. Do you remember this so this woman is very eager to leave the car wash. She's gotTa get Outta here. Look that way all right. We've got an extra wash there that where you clean the interior material <hes> let's check the next one. Let's check what we have here. Do you question whether this person was too eager to get his car wash. Oh God what the hell happened. My father said correct thing there what happened. You can't run it through the car. Wash love the idea that guy getting hit in the head with a spice guy with the hose. Look familiar to me. It didn't Oh yes. This is not the same guy this father another. This is not the same guy that guy that guy would have been run over and position you would've been run over from their questionably broadcast from the Cleveland Their Hotel Beautiful South Beach Miami time to blend again that love love the rolls at least two of them to fool and at that point you're looking at like thirty a five dollar loan Jennifer Sullivan Worth See. Oh no you tell us what to watch on television tonight. We'll tell you for intrigue in the Ontario Lacrosse Association Senior B League playoffs the Owen Sound North Stars ours verse the six Nations River Men that was senior. He likes it anytime anyone mentioned senior. We've got a Lacrosse indoor Lacrosse in Ontario. What are we have it go there? It is in the back yeah. That's legitimately good fight right. They're not so good that number seventy seven is watching it instead of fighting guy next to him. Oh there we go. It's escalating come on seniors number. Fifty two's uniform is big. It would be small on me but that's a big uniform. He's like a hundred twenty pounds under there aw throwing blogs so some more thrown gloves at the end is you're just senior senior B league a-league embarrassed by this display. What about you PAPI? Are you intrigue. ooh very three annoy Lacrosse player. They wouldn't want to fight. Which one is it that guy? The guy that goes on that guy's uniform fits properly. Actually how big is oh man. Are you kidding me that right. There is a punctured Lo long on the packers in Baton Rouge Louisiana. L._S._U.'s news new Locker Room when I think of Ed ordure on I think of many things you know sounds like a cajun swamp monster drinks. A dozen energy drinks a game what I don't think of at all it's very low on the list. Technology is not one of the things I think about but here's locker room now at l._S._U..

Two on Tri: Who Reps Mexico First - Klopp or Vela?

"Welcome everybody Bien. Many of us I spent. He's yawn of the two on three podcasts. Hercules Gomez Bashing southside with you herk. It's been awhile my man how you doing. I'm doing all things considering how you doing. I'm good I'm good on recovered from our last episode. I have made notes in our run down here to move. Any talk of Carlos fell under just one little thing to the very end. 'cause look out this down by the way. I don't care what you say. I don't kill the youtube comments. Say I don't care what the people in my grail by the way. Cam Is our goals day to me about Carlos. What hurts hurt when my own mother when my own mother who listens to this podcast yells at me about my feelings about Carlos Davila. Do you know that was hard? Yeah it's funny because your your dear wife sent us I think she tweeted a picture of you guys. Arguing Union mother arguing over over dinner right our last episode out. Yeah so you're starting family problems for me. I appreciate that very much or maybe as most of my problems. I've probably started this. When my sounds accurate I salute? We got A. We got a few things to get to. We've got some debates some topics. I think we gotta get to news. I strike because we're in an era where where news is happening very quickly. I'll make a point to say right here. It's Thursday may twenty first at one eleven pm eastern time so we may say something here that either by the time this is published by the time somebody listens to. It is somewhat dated. But we'll try and take that into account. Let's start with kind of the pandemic impact on the Mexican football league. Right that the closest I think he would say ally in some way of the national team or the closest product anyway so essential in the CENSO- has been scrapped right promotion relegation in Mexico has been scrapped in the next half decade at least At least it's been put on the table. A second division will be now form. That'll be developmental. The details not exactly clear her but it looks like it will be age in probably four restrictions which I think depending on how you cut that could be either good or bad for Mexican soccer right. It depends on they do it because if when you talk about foreigner restrictions how's that come into play because before it was you can be a foreigner as long as you were registered in excavation by the age of nineteen so that still comes into play. It's only and encourage these clubs got scout at a younger age and bring him to Mexico to them be considered domestic products. Have Air quotations right now. in my hands so it all depends on how that goes forth. We don't know we don't have all the details yet but every single day I hear more and more I see more and more it just smells right the MLS blueprints. Yeah you always keep going back to that. I'm sure we'll touch on that throughout the podcast. But it's obvious. Change dramatically the landscape of soccer and Mexican professional soccer. Right like how guys get jobs. Obviously that has a huge impact on the national team in. All this chaos. There's also a league at about him yet. Nacional like a third almost Mexican soccer. You xactly perfect. Yes perfect perfect analogy. But it's got some names behind Carlos. Ramon Morales just now while it's got some names in the management in administrative roles but until you see some names on the field. It's still very xfl exactly but the point is that there. Are I really think the point I'm trying to make is that? There is chaos brewing in professional side. Nexico I think with this formation the destabilization of the second division the Third Division. Whatever you WANNA call this legal don't There's going to be new job opportunities but there's also going to be chaos in that second division probably some clubs coming and going which in the end of the day also hurts guys were trying onward immediately we get the immediate impact. There is a plethora of players are without a job. Now they're done their careers are over their livelihoods with their families. They've got to look difference officials job fields about how to provide a food on the table. It's a harsh reality. This new league This is that Ohio which is going to be. I believe under twenty three type League. Earn Twenty Four. I should say because they're going to do twenty three years. Old and eleven months is pretty much always do by that old. You should be almost finished product in Mexico and around the world and these players that I will remind people that sort of league already existed. It was nothing as young premier and that's ignited premiered. It was pretty much a graveyard for Mexican. Soccer products already. Existed is just a way of saying here you go. You have somewhere to apply your trade. You have somewhere. You have a platform for you to pray. It's not gonna be any better so at least in my opinion it's going to be any better than what they already have. And look there are so many foreigners taking the top tier jobs in Mexican saga. It's hard for young Mexican players sometimes to get minutes in the so you do need those tiers kind of down the ladder and people probably listen to them. Well what does it affect? The national team was gone on the third division. I would tell people just go back and and we covered this team. We followed them when we were at the World Cup in Russia. Go Back and look at that. England team from two thousand and eighteen. Oh Yeah and look at where some of those dudes were playing within two three years of being on England who was a semi-finalist in a world. They're planning the third and fourth division. They had those. That's a huge part of their development. That does not exist in Mexico and I think right now exists either a perfect perfect example because if you think about the most foreign failed star-studded for league in the world is the Premier League and for many years people would say while the Premier League is great but the English national team not so much. So it's a perfect example now in order for Mexico to get there there have to be certain sacrifices by these ownership groups to make sure these players get the exposure and the development. They need so. Let's talk about the direct impact on the national team schedule because what was really going to happen this year. We're GONNA START TO SEE DOT COM and World Cup qualifiers and obviously that has now been pushed back this from victim mentality CONCACAF president. He said the hatch will almost certainly have to be changed. The heck's is the format that we've seen for as long as you and I can effectively remember in Concacaf qualifying. You gotta go back really before into the eighties to see last time they did. What was a smaller? Tournaments somewhat resembled the heck's but but it was different. The heck's has been your in my experiencing correct Cap World Cup qualifying and this was probably going to be the last instance of it anyway before we went to a different system of World Cup qualifying for an expanded World Cup. One thing that I would say I think this could affect Mexico and and I don't know that it's like on the line of qualifying for World Cup or not. The one thing Montani said is that it would be a much bigger tournament when I hear much bigger her. I think. Much more democratic. And you and I've talked about this a lot. Any CONCACAF event. This is very unfair. I think anything I say. This is a Mexico fan whether it's the Gold Cup. And certainly now the heck's and now the hacks were the top sixteen we're going enough fee for rankings which is totally ridiculous that favored Mexico to an overwhelming extent an advantage that Mexico. Frankly should not need. I think whatever format we're GONNA get coming out of this is at least gonNA level the playing field a little bit. It may not knock next God of a World Cup but for some of those other teams that thought they were gonNA slide in. Be The heck's I think. It might be tougher sledding but I have a problem with this because it gets very political on the type of game to schedule the risk for scheduling said gains ranking. That's why the rankings has to go and I don't think they can do that anymore. Yeah I agree with you. Dopson from doing that and I think that it's going to hurt Mexico but I think it's more fair. It is both be honest. I if have competed with three teams. In Kaka Cath and you rank those three teams maybe two of those three teams qualify for a World Cup spot. I'm being honest. That could be the same for maybe the US. In Costa Rica stretching the bed. But that's the difference in talent Kaka cap from the top tier teams historically the Mexico's us. Costa Rica and the rest. There is a huge gap huge downpour. And listen it's not Mexico's is the. Us's it's not Costa Rica's responsibility to grow the game within Concacaf but it is called cafe responsibility. So I understand what they're trying to do. But the only ones who are going to suffer for our the Mexico's of the world and the US of the world. It'll be interesting like if it were to go back. People don't remember this. I don't remember the side of looks up on Wikipedia. I went back into the seventies and the eighties. Like how did conquer calf used to do its World Cup qualifying? When you didn't have the time and the resources to fly everybody around for home in ways they'd five people into one place for a tournament knock it out and there would be some surprises and Mexico. Miss some World Cups in that format so if things were to go to an extreme year where it had to be a a tournaments type format then nothing. Mexico could be in some trouble because of course it's almost enough. It's almost like a one off and you know how this is because they happened in two thousand thirteen the World Cup qualifying campaign for Mexico. You start off on the back foot and all of a sudden with the way. The Mexican media is the pressure within the fans that whole organization whole country to the culture. That is on that country in start snowballing into a negative mode and it gets bigger and bigger and bigger and before you know. It's you need San Souci. Tobel you out to the World Cup with eleven points there you go. I was looking even further in the history of the last time. Mexico kind of you know did not qualify via via the field was ahead of the nineteen eighty two World Cup and the tournament Yup. Yup and they had they had a tournament. El Salvador went cry And they had a tournament I think the tournament was actually in on Luda and they tied game after game after game. All they needed was a win to go through And you can I in this scenario on matching that happening in the pressure building at home as things go so look. It's it's way off. We don't know what that formats will be. Different from the heck's I think we can save now rest in peace heck's I I don't think we're gonNA to see that ever again. I'm going to miss it. Yeah of course of the home and away. I do love the home and away with Mexico in the US. I think that's super special and to lose that in qualifying we'd probably will is GonNa Stink. Because you're GONNA have to find another way to give us. Us Mexico now. The if I'm talking solely from a US gnashing perspective. That was something to hang your hat on that. You dominated the heck's so many years so many cycles and Mexico struggled so you take that away now. It's like we go from here. Yeah exactly all right so look I mentioned before. It's it's May twenty-first there's the news around the Gum. It's expected this week the cancellation of this cloud pseudo season. It just doesn't look like it's GonNa be feasible. We also know this for sure already. This just came out this week. All of the on field events between Guy Mukisa major league soccer been canceled. I think you know that happens because last knows that. Something's coming from down South. They're not going to roll that out. If they don't need to so Liam analyze all star game is gone Communist. Coop is gone for this year. Leagues Gone for this year. And then just yesterday we find out. Santos has eight players. Who Test Positive for Kobe? So out of the twenty two tested. They're still waiting on twenty six results. Yes thank you for clarifying right. There could be even more at home so look when we say you know. Everybody's living this the pandemics impact on whatever you're doing is total the impact on Mexican football whether you talk about the sport or the Industry. Her has been total without a doubt. And this is why this whole do we continue League machies? Do WE DO NEUTRAL SITES? Do WE DO BUBBLE CITIES. Do all these things are coming into play and you start frankly quite frankly ownership groups that are like. I don't know if I want to go there because I'm going to lose more money. If we play 'cause I need to pay my players if we if we indices and now we can come some sort of an agreement with the players and I don't have to pay as much but if I can't fill up the gates I can't get my game day sponsorships in if I can't get television networks. Who are already contacted to show these games to show the games because also the networks have a say all of a sudden they can't say hey. I can't be putting up so many games every set every every so often. I don't have the airtime. If they can't do that. The sponsorship dollars leave now the ownership are paying more to play than they actually get out of it. So this is why you're seeing this vote coming to play and I think the first vote that was cast out of the eighteen teams. Not all of them voted but seven of did vote and they wanted to end. I believe there was a by another six. Who said they wanted to continue? And a few who said they were unserved and the others didn't vote so it's divided and you can see why some teams don't see the benefit of continuing And listen quite frankly. This goes beyond the sports What's going on in our homes here in. The states is very different than what's going on with the Mexican government and in certain cities around Mexico and the health divisions or health sectors in the information they are giving Mexican soccer officials. So it's pretty much all out of our hands but what I can't tell you right now is. This is something directly impact Mexican national team. Because like you said there are only a handful of players that realistically are in Europe. That could probably get to the next World Cup other than that. You're talking about league. I make use domestic product. And if they're not active if they're not playing and other countries are. That's a huge factor. I think we have to acknowledge as well. The League is trying to do this league anywhere other than Mexico you know. The Bundesliga is running because the German government handled the coronavirus of specific way. The Korean Baseball League the Korean Soccer Leagues are running because those governments handled it a certain way if sports returns in the United States it will be because the government's locally or nationally handled it got things controlled certain way as you say what we're living here is different than in Mexico and until things are under control both year and in Mexico. It's hard to imagine any sports coming back anytime soon because we are not as advanced we have to stay on this side of the ocean. Some people on the other. We've just seen it. That's why they're playing sports writer brain sports and this is going to go. It's going to be a trickle down effect because we've already seen these competitions between major league soccer and MLS canceled Communist. Got Leagues Cup. You know the MLS all star game. What about CONCACAF Champions League you know and these Mexican teams these met at MLS teams? That are accustomed to play each other and finals. Well people forget that. The cockup Champions League is run by Kakha cat and they are the ones who directly benefit from it. So if you're a Mexican team if you're the Mexican league if you'RE MORASS. Why should you play in this others? Make MONEY IF YOU'RE GONNA lose money if you only have to squeeze in even more games. 'cause the pro getting that we're GONNA get to if these both these leagues resume. Its it's going to be a game every three days for these players working you squeeze in. That's why we've seen the cancellation of Artemis. Mls Mickey's events art. So let's get into some debate worthy topics I've been watching a ton of you all over. Espn that boat is Is Basically what's on my television all day. Sometimes that's a good thing. Sometimes it's a bad thing but look like everybody else. Who said they? I think in this space before everybody's scrambling for things to talk about right. We said there is no soccer in a lot of places in the world. So we're trying to figure out new ways to discuss the game and sometimes those new ways are really just old ways reheated and over and over again and you get these. These great kind of long reoccurring debates one of the ones popped up since we last sat down as the Thala enda debate. Which I don't really WANNA get into 'cause I don't know that there's much of a debate between us but I think it's a pattern agreement right. What is what's your take. I mean he is a legend. Yeah absolutely no chance that anyone ever could actually make an honest case that he's not but I think it's a fascinating case study in the Mexican media and then she shut the. Who's not just your average Mexican player either in ability but also seemingly in like he is willing to confront the Mexican media. Say Like if you WANNA doubt me. I'm a sensitive enough to care and be courageous enough to respond. Lebanese courageous courageous enough to respond. I don't understand why he sent to sensitive enough to respond. Best should not that should not bothering you. Come on this guy is is like we just said. There is no debate. You would get under his skin when like everybody all the time. When they manufacturer debate to be like busy a legend or not come on why you make millions of dollars a year because he cares. That's what I'm telling you. Why do you care you fight and cheever's one of the biggest clubs in Mexico? You went to united you. Were totally go score in a decade for one when the biggest in the rose by you went to rally. Madrid Bustos Agra in the road. You did your thing. You've been dilemma. Kuzin you court. Tons of goals of the beleaguered voted the best runner in the Bundesliga that year. Why do you care? Why do you care? You're at the point right now. Anger like we'd be do what you walk. Call Your shot. Why do you care what some shit? Some Joe Schmoe in La or San Francisco or Mexico City has to say about you. You should not carry. Should be above that but he does and for us. It's great because it gives us a lot to talk about. Should not care. His actions on the field speaks so much louder than whatever anybody could say. Don't go is that what you going to say about. You know he's thump. Don't go okay. You don't go means that means you're a tree trunk. You're not with the ball your feet. I mean somebody sent you a pass rebound off like it would a treat trump. This guy's got balls against Chelsea scored goals in three straight World Cups. He's done everything you could possibly do. Call me a million times over. I still who I am you are. That's what he should be thinking. Yeah I think it's also worth noting thrown or not like. That's that's subjective. If you go back and you watch the two thousand eighteen World Cup he made plays with Admiral. He made badly Lozano organs. Germany was set up by Chito. Yes everything that every goal that every big play the Mexico even if you go back to scores the goal against South Korea. He's involved in the build up on the penalty he is. He is critical so like he might not do it in a pretty way. But I think like there is literally no argument props. Well look I would be on the one that says he's the best Mexican player the moment I don't WanNa because what did you say you were the one that will say condos Dallas better and then we'll get into that? Did you just do the best Mexican player in the moment we were talking? Mls member we did the MLS debate la. Who's the best Mexican player? Mls You went Bella. I want you to yell at each other for a while. Can you go in? Mls and there is and this is what he's doing. It is up because it doesn't matter it doesn't and there it is. You're GonNa you are the Mexican media right now. Minot Spirits Yondo minnows. Bresciano chetty though. Because you say a guy who's done insane minutes look at the stats run. Guy had any season for the ages in major league soccer burgos the that year he also was on the team that scored the most points in a regular season historic record. And you're trying to tell me somebody who's been writing pining Europe. Yes I understand. It's Europe that comes to major league soccer. The has yet to do. Anything is a better player than Carlos. Vela writing talented player of his generation. Brian in this pool. According to you. According to your subjective opinion there's no fact involved in hundreds statistics for facts. And you just use US made something up all right. Let's move onto the next debate that I've seen around. Espn the does not really debate. But you know it always talking managers. A lot of it has been you know. Who's the best manager in Mexico? National Team History is the best Mexican manager. Yada Yada Yada. One story that came out that that I thought was interesting and united talked about it over on the ESPN AFC. Youtube Channel is Jurgen. Klopp was at one point on the radar Mexico. Now this came out three or four years ago right the first time around. But when there's nothing to talk about stories get recycled young Lewis. I think it was young. Do Do to came out and said we through a third party you know made an offer not made an offer but tested the waters said. Yeah see without hey interesting. The response was thanks but no thanks. I'm working in the club game. Obviously that worked out well for him. I don't know that there's much to take away from that story other than what we talked about when we're talking about on Youtube that is my goodness the Bishen of the FM who can be criticized. And that's the Mexican Federation for literally everything if you want to cannot be criticized for who they're going after the national team coach especially relative to who everybody else in their region. Their competition is going after head coach. Let's be honest since the hiring of Spain goring Ericsson. Fm F- has really been ambitious. Go for the sexy pig. They go for the Progressive Pick. They go for what world's for buys dictating to be the hot pick of the moments. This doesn't surprise me. It also doesn't surprise me through a third party and there was no ever. I guess you could say Declaration or direct contact with European club is very difficult. Man I I would assume to try to get a hold of even if you are the Mexican national team. That doesn't surprise me. It surprises me that Mexico thinks they have a shot at them. But shoot your shot and that they do and that right. There is for any Mexican national team. Fan I any fan in general what you want to see out of your federation because deep pockets they have but you wanna see. I guess the aspirations to go with the ambition to go with it. And that comparison in you're SORTA yeah. Yeah you have to think about it. This is pretty Liverpool Klopp so maybe not quite the shine that he has now. But this but this is pretty free liberal. This Dortmund crop that still very ambitious. That seem beyond what we all see now. Almost give them more credit right like you have to. I mean obviously obviously you. You can make a case all right. Take a step back. He wasn't going to make elderly. Play like Liverpool. You can make that argument of course because while the talent that he has at his disposal but to see that type of I guess Development in his future to see that already in him. That's very ambitious. Sure and then I think we can. We can see that ambition the Martino higher to like that non really upset me why well standpoint of course I mean. He's in your backyard literally. He's he's in your domestic league. He's he's working for you he's. Mls earned key also rounded the job. It was so easy. And here you go you give them to your biggest rival have yeah. Yeah you're right you're right. They like they brought him in the door. And then like yeah it stupid as this sounds they showcased that the. Martino stupid as it sounds a a manager who's been at Barcelona who's been at the Paraguay national team in World Cups. We've been at the Argentine national team you showcase into Mexico that's did right now in Mexico was smart to get him and obviously I think. Now there's a plan that seems to be maybe even to this world cut next World Cup and beyond so that word that forward thinking we've said this we've said this. I said I will give it to charity know. This is an eight year plan. You have to ride this wave. We want to do well in Qatar. But our main focus is twenty twenty six so look That's one of the the conversations right. I think Michio dinos came out and said Know You. Just give it to them for life you know. He's he should stay for live. It'd be good for Mexican soccer and who is anxious. Look I think I think anytime you talk about a second cycle. You're going into a rarified air right it's got to be a unique person and a unique situation that work together for eight years and suggesting that anybody is going to be able to work under the pressure cooker that is Mexican. That job with the Mexican press and somewhat dysfunction of Federation for eight years is is a big ask. I would also point point out the example that we've seen to give a guy a second go before he's even finished. His first go is very risky. And I'm your Clinton nobody you're gonNa Clinton was given this is second. Go after the World Cup. No he got a contract renewal before fourteen. He got a contract renewal before fourteen and promotion. I was under the assumption that that happened after the World Cup. No he was he was he was on he got he had a second. World Cup. Ironies you I believe you all right then you then. You're you're right about that There's two sides of this coin could either go very well for you or very bad for the national team. You could make an argument of of the only coach. Two Games. The next heck heck's and then he was out in whatever you want to. I guess determine whether that was successful or not. But that's a chance you're gonNA take because since then. Us Soccer was on the hook. For how many millions and they're probably still paying there. You go all right. So one of the other debates popped up is and this is. This is a classic. 'cause YOU'RE GONNA insert anybody's name into this is blank elite and in this world. The conversation very recently has been Israel menace elite. He is touching up against some elite numbers in Europe in elite place. There's interest from teams that well they're air quote interest from teams that. I think people would label as elite yet. They're still some doubt as to whether he could actually a play at that level and then I think even beyond that get a chance at that level. Is it realistic that you would end up at seven or eight teams that I think you would say are in that in that top top category? I'm just interested in your take because there's we've done these segments. I think over and over again on. Espn AFC Youtube. We look at every single club. He's linked to and they're everywhere right there. Everyone from wolves up in all lease of all the links that you've seen. Is there one that you say? Yeah not just cannot buy it but I like it man. You're mentoring them off to you. I I know which ones you all my heart because we heard of to surround Marie Barcelona Man City Chelsea united in England. I know them by heart. Is he elite to play there? I do feel he's a lead enough to play there. I I like him to feed. Amino know he's that type of player he's been more productive than for me over the last two years. Yes I do know that but I mean in the way he makes others play around him. What would you say for me knows elite? Yes yes I would okay. But he's dramatic over the last two years. I understand what you're going. He's been over the last two years but he's proven it's at a bigger club like Liverpool in bigger platforms up until this moment about menaces platform is Arab League. That's what it is. He's got one thing going against him is. It's only been two years if you look at his track record in Europe. It's only been actually not even two years. It's been a season and a half which has been a great season and a half one of the world's best in that season and a half for what he's done in arguably the best league in the world before that he was at. Let's go how did I go? He was at Benfica. How did that go? He is how old twenty nine years old. I believe so if we get political how it works and what close could potentially go for a transfer a player of that age and also his value. What did was pay from. He was a record transfer from Benfica. He's got all these factors going against. Do I feel he's lead enough to play at these big clubs? Absolutely I do dry. Think it'll happen. No let me tell you. Where does it? You don't think go anywhere. Like okay. Fine. He won't go to. Psg Ronaldo Barcelona. You don't know think he'll go to a Manchester United. No I don't stay wolves you think you should say. Awards is what you're saying. I think his ceiling right now. In the Premier League in the Premier League is a team. Mike Wolves That's where I think it is. If it's abroad somewhere like Lollygag or the Bundesliga lollygag could see him anywhere. Outside about letting go Anywhere outside of Barcelona at maybe Valencia as type. Yes I can see. I don't see him at one. Eight corrupts I do not see it at all. And it's not because of his way because you very well know that sometimes it isn't so much a factor when it comes to world football. How political get if you're gonNA offer this man because I'm sure he's looking for four or five year deal operatives Manafort Five Year Deal Way Padilla's mid thirties at an elite club. I don't see in the League club with his track record taking that chance on Roy quickly. Let me tell you the clubs at I was linked to during my Branko. She you see how this gets muddled. A- linked to Wolfsburg asper West Brom Albion is linked to grasshoppers Sweden. And what are the club was linked to She us these things. You should always buy into it because half the time. It's like these third party interests that we hear about your club. It's an agent offering. Somebody in a reporter gets wind of the I guess offer of Said Agent to set club and it goes viral grasshoppers in Sweden Switzerland. I'm sorry yeah you go there you go. I would hate to use you. Show up in Stockholm thinking. You'RE GONNA play right offers and there was an ourselves buddy over in a lot of this. Were were do the same vein of somebody's offering. It was lensman talking to these clubs for me and these clubs right. Yes sure. We'll look at the guy. Santos like no. They're not GONNA look at anything. You're going to go. Try Out as clubs. You're thirty years old. They want you to put it in a bit. All right. How much is did they figured out. How much how much Santa's wanted. We're not touching the best. So let me ask you this because I let me let me make this point because I do think there is one. I broke them into categories. Here right Byron uvais dominated Barcelona. Psg City Liverpool at the elite. Maybe Athletico like maybe he goes. Yeah okay all right. So that's your top eight. That's it like I don't it's not that. I don't think he can play there. I just don't I don't really see what about spurs is that elite breathe. No no so so the accident. Potential birds so spurs you know. Hurricane Leaves Arsenal Obama Yang leaves. I'd even Everton Inner Everton Grub sure and obviously now has big pockets really deep pockets as well. You know to go along with the history so they could be innovating but Everton to me. You know if we talk Everton from wolves what really like to me that in historically okay the markets and he's got angela the big six all six. Okay you want big six hours. You'RE GONNA fix arsenals that you're right. I could see arsenal. Maybe and I could see Spurs. Yeah Yup well let me. Let me make the case here for Manchester United. Because I think it's actually a solid one. They they're one of the few clubs. Everyone will be hit financially hard by the errors. They are probably one of the more well insulated because of how advanced their financial structures are. They'll probably lose a lot like if you actually hear the number that united lose it'll be big but they'll still make a lot and so I think united will be uniquely positioned in the coming transfer markets. They're not a clubs. Long-term they need guys were producing now. Who would they rather have? And you know who throw out there. Who Harry hurricane or humans? I don't know that Manchester United Hurricanes going to have options. I think I think he's going to have better options than Manchester United. And that's the other point. You're just his no longer. Picking from the elite want to go to the rabbit hole of hurricanes options but united is a contender absolu- a massive club massive club. And we've gone through this with Craig Burley on numerous times. And if they go the route of that big signing to be hurricane if they go to jail Sancho row and sprinkle and some other players in an off chance that they call it one often when our ministers in the conversation Claw Mendez is the agent. He's he's done dealings with them before. I think also like we always talk about it right and maybe I wouldn't care about this but clubs know what they're doing and if there's any club that can understand the value of Mexican international hundred percents Manchester United and that bird right to sit in Shuki totally and don't think that the whole politic Chelsea same deal all of these were seventy five million dollars in the transfer market if not for him being American but I think that factors in he menaces value big clubs. Who Think about you know. I don't know about wolves. I don't think it's necessarily was a bad example. Because they're kind of weird transitional club anyway but I don't think most clubs care about the international market as much as the big clubs do but those big clubs are very aware follow. Wolves twitter handle. I have the wolves Mexico Jersey. Yes I bought it they. They. They embraced an embrace. The the hell out of minutes but I don't think that's why they signed him. I don't think that plane are now. No no because they were. They were promoted and they needed Player bargain players. But that is why it came into part of that transfer after that first season. Sure this is also important to me is may twenty first last night. I'm watching shout out to our colleagues over there. They're playing all the best gov and they're playing the two thousand six champions final which is Barcelona arsenal and Rafa Marquez marking Jerry Anri and you know you just see the one. He bodies them. Yeah I mean we had his moments to seeing on in two thousand six is like while what what what just incredible player but anyway is nothing markets at the elite level at in the biggest games starting on the team that wants and it just rains drew every time we come every time we sit down. Every time I get around this national team I come back to the thing. You told me in Russia outside the stadium after they lost to Brazil is just not enough Mexican players in the elite level. And I go back and that was two thousand and six right that was supposed to be. The door flung open right to Mexican players. Getting into big important. It was it was but the only accident. You have battle. You have South Cedar. You have a mess. Who's centreback who who went abroad as well? You had a lean you had room. I missing missing a few other guys ave part of his. That was that generations because of guys like Marcus but then since there was a gap and what I would say about those guys. They never got to his level of ever got yet. They never got to the elite level. They never played for an elite club and so he gets to the mountain top and expect. Okay they'll be more maybe not a ton but there will be more and the only other guy even gets close to that. Mountaintop is and he gets there for a moment in moments. You know. It's it's not. How a got there and that kind of consolidated fashion so here we have in two thousand eighteen. I'm depressed outside the stadium in Russian. Your whole Mexican players aren't laying at a good enough level body. It's like go bang. They're like yeah so when when I hear you tell me that he managed shouldn't make that jump all man do to study. Shouldn't I don't think that he won't you know like it is it really is is is just. It's overwhelmingly like to me. It's just such a bummer. Because I think like a business. Why would a club take that type of chance on employer? Who's out WHO's even plateaued. You know. Come on I mean. Look at the body of work. If eighteen months are another strikers in the world right now our life thirty thirty one. Yes with a body of work named the best strikers and we can go through the body working. You know this when you have eighteen months body a work. Are you going to spend because what was it? Forty something million. To what do you think is GonNa Command? GotTa be in the sixty to seventy range right. Yeah Yeah probably. I don't know we don't know numbers now right with pandemic it's fine but what I'm saying is that's gamble. Oh Man Yeah I feel you feel you. It's just you look at the players who have chances to get to the mountain top and probably three years ago. I wouldn't have put Jimenez even even in my thoughts two years ago. We're on the same pack guessing. You're crushing menace. Even read more recent than that you. It wasn't until he really got to wolves and maybe like a couple months in that. He's already initiating and that's what I thought he's game took the next step because like a forward who can do everything else but camp finishes tiny useless and he did everything else. Oh well that when he started. Finishing was like this guy's awesome. It's got it really really is a very complete player in your system right now that caters. That's that's the other thing I've seen this so many times in our as assistant player like we say in other sports buys a system quarterback but he's proven it in this system. He's proven with this coach. He's proven it in this environment. It's not always the case when you leave right right right but the look the whole point of this podcast always to get Ginkgo. Partido Right Ryan. I think everything in Mexican soccer. All of the angst revolves around expectations and as long as Mexican players are still at wolves and not united or city or Liverpool. We can hope for like egging partido but we can expect it at their Mexican players at wolves that means you're playing out over league closer than you think. Okay but there's one right now. It's not everybody not everybody. I'd other guy that's kind of at that level who I want to move to. I think we'll skip Shuki because you're not talking about all the time if you WANNA takes on. Espn the Youtube Channel. Here's a guy we don't talk a lot about and that's dito. He's very interesting to me for a variety of reasons but one his age and just gave an interview on. Espn the that. I sent you the clip. I'm sure you saw it. One of the teams that he was linked to was to that next level up. When you know when you see an agent name a team you give it. It's a little bit more than just like a useless website. Transfer right this this help for me. A little bit on inter. Milan was the team. And I think that yes okay. Wow jumped from fourth to Inter Milan for at Great. But that wasn't the thing that I really took most from this interview. It was the idea that Katito at club level has really and truly transformed into this. Got a letter this right wing his agent so take it with a grain of salt and probably a pretty big one. But he's talking about him as one of the best at that role in Europe and he's pointing to his assists and this and then you look and you say wow yeah. He is a very productive player in that role. And I don't think I've ever thought of as that because that's not really hot. Ever seen him used for Mexico but could this be a situation where that Gotti not only makes the jump to an elite level but does it at a different position and ends up playing that position for Mexico. Yes yes absolutely. A thirty million euro release clause. That's GONNA hinder him at the moment because for outside backs unless you're Danny allies. I don't see post pandemic a team showing that kind of money out for Guy. Maybe twenty eight in January but in in birth. Oh He's got. He's got like seventeen assists in two seasons. He's a player that plays very well when the game is in front of him and as a right back got metal. The game is always in front of you. He's very attack orientated. He's taken to to that system. I guess you could say to that role. In a way that few players can transition really effective to it. Ain't that is one of those teams right now. That's on the cost. I would say being elite. Because of their aspirations ambitions there was an an an ambition power rankings. They would be at the top. It'd be one of these clubs so if you can get a player like got a firm believer in. I love his game to that kind of level I think he will be a better player for it and I do see that transitioning to what is at times Mexican national team because that you know and under Domenichino. We've seen a traditional for three three so you're not really. GonNa get him playing net right back role unless he wants to change something. He goes with three backs two forwards. I could definitely see that. Got The but this is a move that if you're the W is agent you one hundred percent welcome because there is a big jump between boredom and what is ended. And we've seen this many times many times. Just because you're good broader doesn't mean you will be good in transition to the next level and I will use the example of Jackson Medina's from the WHO was killing it when the light deco and so recently accurate who was legend. He was captain for so many years and then he goes to let it go hunting for minutes. Yeah now it's interesting with Because he also has to think about it from the national team standpoint which is look at the position he plays. It is so stacked talent if you're him trying to get on the field or if you're Datta who wants to get him on the field. I'm sorry they're probably other guys ahead of him. In those two wide attacking remember. How relationship started Julia Hammer Hustler? Your and you should release. It started a lot of that had to do with Porto like. Yeah but he was stuck in the mill but the end of the day at the end of the day. He's the one who's going to suffer whether it's with borough when he leaves or whether what's way with. L. Three and data when he doesn't show up will the suburbs. So you're talking about that and I honestly if you think about the top three right now in that does is in the frontline. You've got you've got Juki. What Yuki but Roseau Becerro? Whereas he's been sprinkling in Empty Saddle so does he see those players ahead of the Katito. Kind of thinking does yeah. I think he could have a chance to beat. Both those guys out and pretty much better. I do as well. I think he's better than both. What is that? I think think those players overtake at the moment. Yeah yes sir could be interesting Maybe we see that sooner than later on that all right so we've talked about KLOPP. We've talked about here. Comes Air Gaza Talk Loud? We talked about all of I literally all the news that I can think of. We talked about you Jedi. Though we talked about was doug humanity talking about the transfers. Let's talk just a little bit here at the very end about Carlos data and I will say this when your mother yells at you you you do have to kind of rethink your your stance on some stuff. Especially when it's my mother so what I would there. There's is a more academic way to have the discussion that we have and we'll probably have that at some point down the road because I don't think the stories over right I think we're GONNA keep co- come back and visit visiting it anyway. Recently Carlos Vela's Has a quote that comes out where he says like bear Kinda somewhat flippantly. I think and maybe it's the last time I'll use the Jersey almost In some way teasing I would say the the idea that that his time with the national team might or might not be done again acknowledging that there's a doubt there but not not sorting that out for us. I wonder what you made of the comments. Read the comments me. Let me let me pull pulled up. I was paraphrasing. I will do my best. I will best to think about it in a Carlos. Val Voice Because when it comes to Carlsberg I'M GONNA I'M GONNA put him on this level of threats if you're a UFC fan henry who to retirement if you're a basketball fan and a documentary fan. The last dance Michael Jordan. Saying he won't come back for the you know after year fills gone. It almost feels like he's threatening teasing and he wants to come back to you. Know what I mean. Yeah like that's my thought is. Why does it keep coming up like why are you? It's it's like a guy throwing a fishing like doer out united spoken many times. You can stop looking for it. It's fine I'm Gonna I'm GonNa find but you keep talking but when I was Gonna say as you and I have spoken many times on this platform about whether God would play again for the for the Mexican national team and you said No. He's done he won't play anymore and I said I think you'll play it yet. But he said he's retired as NAD. Then Mexican national team should move on. And you gave a plethora reasons all his words of like. He's he's covering up or he's in the way as storebrand though he's in the way of somebody's development and he doesn't. WanNa play anymore. They should move on but then all of a sudden him saying hey wouldn't be so bad playing in the Olympics you know all of a sudden him making these these assessments about picking and choosing when he wants to come back to you and I was on. I was one of the first one I told you this. I think if there's a world cup in front of him and he's playing at the same row going to say you know what I want to play at this World Cup. I just don't want to do the Conga calf. All the Cajun's nations league right gotta go to Bermuda. We already know. That's not gonNA fly with dot dot dot dot said either. You're eating because bright today. Do you think tomorrow Doctor Martinez a World Company says you know. This guy is absolutely killing it by. Just invite him to this tournament when people are going to really be upset me. No they're to be saying you should take him. I think Gatos valid knows this. I think settles is using this to his advantage and rightfully so in a smart way. If you think about it if you really think about it. He's taking us about. He's taken a sabbatical. He's just not publicly calling it that in you've got to be very careful with the sabbaticals because as as we've seen in CONCACAF start goals. Landon Donovan took a Sabbatical and Jurgen. Klinsmann called his bluff. Your been said Nope Not GonNa fly and your again and many to. This may have many many were of set. Said you aren't going. You weren't part of this. Wow that was also he also brought him back and made him a part of it for the World Cup qualifying campaign he needed them and I wouldn't it qualifying campaign. I'd say Gold Cup back and look at those qualifiers stroke go back and look at Mexico. Us qualifier the one Randy Johnson scores. Landon scores Yeah but Goku when he brought him back trust me. That was the cleaner. Wells took a sabbatical tim. Howard how that end up for the US. Yeah okay so I mean what? I'm saying what I'm saying is it's got apple. It's not apples to apples there. You know but that's fine bite. What I'm saying about spell is if you WANNA call it the sabbatical he's one of these Blair's in our compare to lane because I think it makes more sense. Where if you take him to a tournament your team is better for it fair enough. I Dude We have literally covered everything that I think we can cover like. I said all those news items off the top probably deserve their own episode on how they affect. The Mexican national team will probably know more in coming weeks especially on what's going to happen with World Cup qualifying because I think that's really the the next most important thing for this team. Right we this point Wait for that and when you think about the World Cup being in the winter now of two thousand and twenty two. It's actually interesting with all of the schedule. Shift that that six months. That was gonna be awkward now actually kind of lines up yep lines out but I think it's still awkward. I I think the set every national team every program I it's GonNa be of. Who could I guess? Get acclimated fast enough to this new world post pandemic qualifications at the world's liable soccer at the world's of at the elite level in if the Mexican national team players aren't playing if all they're doing is zoom trains with local clubs. Oh Man I'd give him the rest of these other teams who are a leg up and it's let's let's end it on this and it's an important point. The Bundesliga is back and there are a boat load. And you know this because you I cover it of Americans playing in the Bundesliga and MLS will soon be back. Nevada case that's almost ninety percent of the pool right there. The American player pool. Which is Mexico's chief? Rival is going to be not just very active but outside. The guys were playing in this. Mls tournaments should that come back the guys who are in the Bundesliga plant really high level. And they're going to be making strides that Mexico and they're playing. Yup is is not going to be making so before we get out of here real quick. Let people know where they can find you because you're all over? Espn the Orthez and everything else. Yeah pulled the began the our guy you and I have been doing. Espn a plethora of youtube videos. You can go to the ESPN EMC YouTube Nc The videos in please go to the comments and comments on Are Running I read. I read every last one soon gonNA do a youtube comments mean comments. It'll be it'll it'll be a classic for all right man great to see you be well. Good hello to your family and for all of our listeners. Thanks for listening was next time onto on three.

9 Biggest Pros and Cons Of Cruising To Iceland

"What are the pros and cons of cruising to Iceland. I'm Gary. This is another of my tips for travelers. I'm Carney Arne on board. A saga cruises in my cabin. This is the second time I've actually cruised to Iceland and I thought it was a great time to share with you the pros news and cons the good and the bad about choosing to come to Iceland on a cruise rather than a land based trip. What do you need to know probably one the biggest pros and good things about choosing to cruise around Iceland rather than do a land-based. Is the fact that all of the key sites all of the settlements or the towns are on the coastal areas. The center of Iceland is basically a large wasteland of lava and so all the key sites and all the places. You're going to see please stop at and go to around. The coast. Therefore going on a cruise is very logical in fact. If you want to see Iceland by land you have after drive around one key road because right around the island. This is high one. The ring road is eight hundred and eight to two miles long one thousand three hundred hundred kilometers so basically if you want to see the island you're going to have to go all the way around the outside so the cruise is a great way of getting there. The ring road is not a particularly big road and it can be very busy so it makes a huge amount of sense to go on a cruise is going to take you to all of the key places and all of the key sites that you want to see all within very easy easy access of the poets that you call on the two big classic things that you want to see what the golden circle out of Reykjavik and then you also the have the jewels of the north so if you go on the Golden Circle you're GONNA see three of Iceland's most impressive and important landmarks. You're going to see think Vela gophers and the Giza critical series of place. You're going to want to see what is known as the jewels of the north and the Jews of the north are we visit visit the bubbling mud pots of Namaskar dot com then visit the booger and then you go and see the incredible beautiful go to foster the waterfall of the Gods so the key sites that you're going to want to see are on the coast accessible on the coast. You'd have to drive quite long distances. You can't fly into some of these places. If you want to really to get around the island to see the key places WanNa go on a cruise also on a cruise at all of the ports of call. You're also also GONNA have a wide range of excursions. The cruise line curated and pulled together all the important place you need. It don't have to do any more research and they will take things out. Well L. Watching you can go and see birds like puff ans someone even take you to key sites where the game of thrones series has some of its key scenes filmed and of course there will be a series of different excursions particularly places like Reykjavik to the Bard's like the famous blue lagoon. I think the next key reason for doing a cruise around Iceland rather than land-based is all of the benefits of going on a cruise and I think these are particularly important when when it comes to Iceland on a cruise you only unpack at have to pack once if you're going to try and see Iceland land. You're going to have to keep moving between different places. UNLV if he packing and unpacking quite also you get all of that hassle and stress taken away then of course you have all of the perks of being on a cruise ship so for example here on the saga cruises we had a choice of different places we could go and eat or have room service also here on board saga. There would be bands playing in various spas. They will also be assure every night which was either guest entertainers or production show and of course even right down to the medical center. If you had any medical issues that's all available to worry once your land about dealing with all of that there was a shop on board. If you'd forgotten any bits and pieces coming to Iceland on accrues just makes it so much easier and you can just focus on the whole experience of enjoying the place another big pro is particularly for those people who don't liked to fly out there like the hassle of flying you can actually do no-fly cruises from a number of places in Europe so for example out of the UK you can cruise on cruise lines like the one that I'm on Saga cruises and they will sell out of Dover right up to Iceland around and back to Dover so you can actually avoid flying. UK based there are the cruise lines that will come to. I send out of other ports around mainland Europe so definitely if you based in Europe or you want to minimize the amount of flying going on a cruise to is is definitely one way of doing that for me. Another big pro of going on a cruise rather `land-based is in fact when you're on land in Iceland is pretty expensive. If you WANNA have snacks buy drinks. If you WANNA go out for meals accommodation Asian hotels can all mount up and its surprising expensive in Iceland which I guess makes sense because they have to ship so much stop into the island and Iceland. Oakland is pretty far away so the first time I came to Iceland. I thought I was getting the exchange rate wrong because things seemed really expensive. We're not converted them but that's not the case. Things are pretty expensive in Iceland. So the advantage of course coming on a cruise is you're. GonNa know what it's GonNa cost you to get there. Get around and all those costs associated with eating dining gonna be able to know that before you go and then once you're in Iceland. You're not gonNA have additional costs. Certainly the fact that Iceland is a pretty expensive place once you hear on Land Santa Cruz is great because before you go you know it's going to cost you and you have that all locked down for me personally. One of the big big pros is that when when you come on a cruise you're GONNA learn a huge amount about the place and they have really curated what you need to know and actually see the key sites. This is really important so for example on the cruise. WHO's that I'M ON WITH SAGA. They are in Richmond lecture. There's a whole series of experts who talk about the history. They talk about ports. They talk about the sites. I talked about the folk. No they talk about the culture they talk about the food so you learn a huge amount which is included within your fest also on the Cruise. Ship you get destination guides for all the ports what's with all the information around a little bit of history what to see what to do way to go maps of the places to go well so on the in room television and often find a cruise ship will have documentaries about Iceland so one of the key things. Is You have a huge opportunity to learn about know about about and understand what you're seeing way to go and how to do it without any of the research yourself then you also have the short excursions team team who would have been twice the number of times and you can just go there and ask questions and they will help you so you have all these experts on hand huge amounts of information in about Iceland. You can learn and get without having any extra work and of course then you have all the excursions to choose from and they will have chosen guys experts so again again. You know you're going to see the places you need to see and you'd have guys who are local guides who know the place inside out so those for me certainly are the six big pros is a six good things about coming to Iceland on a cruise. So what are the cons. What are things that may be less good about coming on a cruise. One of the key additional costs above your cruise. Fare is likely to be excursions. If you come to Iceland Sydney want to go out and see all the great sides. Burma most cruise lines do not include excursions with in your fair so for example here on saga everything other than excursions were pretty much included so drinks included accommodations accused of course all the dining option including specially dining mining was included some wi fi was included and drinks were included said any extra really was of course things like spa treatments or shopping or souvenirs. He is on land but excursions were additional next question is can add quite a lot so for example to give you a sense of what that could be if you go on a golden circle tool that cost around about one hundred twenty pounds per person so about one hundred and fifty. US dollars the jewels of the North was about a hundred and seventy nine pounds which is about two hundred dollars per person if you went well watching depending on where it was that could be anything from one hundred twenty nine pounds or one hundred fifty dollars up to two hundred dollars or one hundred ninety pounds per person so do bear in mind that one of the downsides off going on a cruise is that you still will have excursions to do and there is a cost cost associated with those one of the cons that you could argue of coming on a cruise is that you are traveling around Austin in a little bit of a bubble that you're not on land and stay in hotels eating and local restaurants so you didn't get as much immersion and interaction with local people of course things you could do if you come on a cruise is there. They're always be excursions which are going to give you more cultural immersion and opportunities to mix and get much closer to the Icelandic people and there are some ports like trek avik where many cruisers will stay overnight so example on this cruise. We had a night in Reykjavik. So of course you the opportunity to go out and experience much more off the city and the local bars. The other con- one could argue is that a cruise isn't gonNA buffer and protect you from the crowds at the key sites and Sydney isn't going to guarantee into you. Great weather is and has become incredibly popular since about two thousand ten so many of these key sites particularly golden circle and Jews choose of the North get very very busy and coming on a cruise is not going to give you any special access or ways of avoiding the crowds because the guys when they take around. We'll try and take the best times but it is pretty difficult. Do the cons outweigh. The pros will the fact that I've come here for a second time. Cruising to Iceland probably answers the question. I think cruise is a phenomenal way of seeing Iceland and if you WANNA come to Iceland you do we really to go around the whole island to see the key places so why not do crews. I have many more videos including some about Iceland load around cruising with tips and advice. So why don't you watch one of those right now.

S2 E33: 46 Minutes of Extra Time Minimum

"News. Actual. Geez. Yes. Shares we'll give you the balls to the spring, I knew. And then claw your face off flash. I'm not fully. Together. Thank you. Hello, Rapids fans. And welcome to holding the Highline with rabbi and read my name is Matt Pollard. We are coming to you on the evening of Wednesday, June twenty six twenty nineteen the United States, men's national teams just feed in Panama and his through to the knockout rounds of the Gold Cup and the US women are, of course, taking on France in will be defacto women's World Cup final in that whoever wins that will be the favourite to make it rabbi Marc Goodman. How're you doing tonight my friend? That's not finals were. Isn't there? Fine me, one may significant journalists or expert or analysts are pundit who's looking at the remaining. The quarterfinals for the women's World Cup and who doesn't think that whoever wins between the US in France should be the favorite to win out yet. But in twenty years, nobody's going to remember that. The US knocked out France in the quarter-final or the France knocked out the US in the quarter-final they're gonna will remember the final game, no matter how, how unfavored the second team as so. I mean I'm not I'm not this is not my banter topic argument. I'm just saying I don't really I, I don't think it'll be it'll be a gray soccer game in you watch it. But, you know, I invited people over to he'd omelets at my house, on the final day. I'm not moving that data, just because it's USA France, also because I can't afford champagne and cheese which would be. The nice thing to serve her Kane. It's probably of the car in my house at three o'clock on a Wednesday or Thursday. So I might be dual screening it with, like some reference document on the ready to collect if I have to kind of in. I'm gonna nice setup in, in the work office. Mark, right? I don't have a whole lot of foot traffic around Mike Yougal, and it takes somebody like coming around in, like being behind me and physically in my cubicle behind me in order to see one of my screen, so I might have to do it a little bit sneaky like that. I was also in Hobbs New Mexico, twelve hours ago. So Iraq, a lot of billable work from stuff I had to do monitoring wells in some plume formation in the groundwater on Sunday through Wednesday. So maybe I've already earned it this point all find a way to figure it out. And listeners, I would encourage you to do the same as probably be the best match in terms of quality and level opponent for the women's national team of this World Cup so far. I spent my last two hours listening to the democratic primary debate instead of watching Josie also door Bica ball in against Panama. So I feel pretty stupid right now. The that's all that I know. But I, I watched I watched the I watch DC Orlando and got to see Wayne, Rooney knock it in from basically the other side of space. I think technically where he hit that ball is is in Maryland. I don't think I don't think having gone to George Washington University. I can't imagine that he was still within the district of Columbia when he hit that ball. He was technically in his own half. So a further distance than both the Davidge via half court shot against Philadelphia union last year, a couple years ago any further distance then, of course, Lonzo, pinning goal hit Emily's career against L AFC, but. Shall we? Get into it, Mark. We have to 'cause I've only given twenty four more minutes of my time because he started the clock extra late tonight because he was in New Mexico digging wells, wherever Matt is digging wells. I mean maybe he's not actually digging wells. Maybe he's just holding up a big fancy blueprint in pointing it some leather neck and Sangyo Don that wrong. I think you've done that wrong oil is going to leak into the sand. You're going to destroy the climate. That's what Matt does. I think that's, that's at least what I picture do out. Some kinda fended at your impersonation my engineering voice, Mark. But as you said, we do not have time for me to actually do any corrections, technical or otherwise to what you said. So move onto it listeners, this past Saturday on a very, very abbreviated MLS weekend. The Colorado Rapids, drew Vancouver Whitecaps at B C place by a score of two to the burgundy boys came out absolutely firing in the opening twenty minutes. Diego Rubio gets on the end of a cross on a corner from nNcholas Zita in the. Eight-minute you had the ball go through the middle of the of the goal area. Nobody really going for it, and then Rubio to Vancouver, Whitecaps defenders in the area, a completely unmarked in puts it in the back of the net, the Rapids, rightfully so ahead as the Whitecaps were sleeping literally Mark who the first thirty minutes of the game in the Andre shoe shaky with a great tap in off of a header from KAI, Kamara Nicholson Zita on the secondary. Assist there on a patented counterattack by the burgundy boys? The Rapids kinda shut it down after the thirty minute, Mark GIO Rubio draws or is forced into a PK against all the odds not just before halftime Fredy Montero converse that and then a very defensive and I would say, underwhelming version of hashtag heat fighting in the second half, and he already raining scores on a set piece on us in the eightieth minute off of a foul just outside the box. And I think of this game goes another ten minutes, Mark. I would bet the Vancouver Whitecaps flying away to get eight. Third goal, Mark. What was your good thing from this past Saturday's draw against the caps? I have I have a question before he gets a how do you do these recaps, because they're so good. And they're they're all original. And you have your own little phraseology that goes into them like, do you. You do write these outer Vance. You like give yourself little notes in that riff like, how do you do this? A lot of it is practice with some of it has methodology in a lot of this is just recapping seven the main tweets that ultimately get the incorporated in some aspect the my thoughts turn into tweets. And then those become a blueprint or bullet points of things that I want to address in my takeaways peas and for the recap for the game for the night out, Mark, and then all of that kind of gets I re hash that, while looking at the highlights and then I just have a very cerebral memory of what happened in the game in some of the things that I wanna point out than just kinda comes in that off the cuff in, in what I'm covering. For me like literally, I have listened to your recap. Otherwise, like I don't even remember who we play for one. I mean that's just how my memory works. Also, I enjoyed much of my college years in all of the many inebriated and inebriated ING ways that smashed your brand sells into little at atomic bit. So I couldn't hold all those thoughts if I wanted to. But even if I even if I hadn't damaged my brain back in the day. I don't think I remember that stuff my brain just doesn't work that way. But that being said, like I it's greatly appreciated number one, but number two, I don't remember what I was about to say. And that's because I've any braided as mashed my brain debates. My good thing. Mike, good thing is that is, is, is a broader, you know, serial thirty thousand foot kind of thing, which is that there was a time like eight weeks ago when fans would have been over the moon happy with a to draw and from the lot of the people that I, especially on the road from the lot of the people that I kind of interact with on Twitter on read it, and otherwise people were legitimately disappointed that we dropped points here, mound up the to draw. That's amazing. You know, we should be thrilled. This was the six league game without losing in a row for Colorado. And yet, a lot of people express to me that they were disappointed, which I think, is a legitimate point. There's no doubt that this team probably shouldn't be dropping to nothing lead. But like Mike good thing is that the fan base is back to the point of being a normal. Soccer fan base, where we expect to win soccer. Games and we expect to hold leads and not that we are beaten down by life and thrilled with two draws. What about you? I'm gonna say the opening thirty in really the opening twenty minutes of this one marquee Rapids came out. And guess what? They actually pressed even when they didn't have the ball. They said, okay, we're gonna have KAI Kamara up top. We're gonna put one other attacker up top. We're gonna press whoever has the ball on the back line for the Vancouver Whitecaps. And when we do have the ball, we're gonna move it relatively quickly like we've seen from them in the past. This was a fantastic. Not slider. What am I what am I thinking of a curve ball metaphorically from Conor, Casey to show a new look something that clearly, the team had time to prep four and actually execute? And they executed it to a tee for the first twenty or thirty minutes against the team that was not prepared to play. And so that was that was a great nuance thing. That's where this is clearly something that Casey had developed that the players of Zorba and executed in real time. And the other scene was completely not prepared for it. I would not be shocked at all. If I gave Marco Santos shoots telling serum at halftime and said, we're expecting the Rapids come out and press for the opening twenty minutes and really try and get on you early, and he'd probably would have said, absolutely not. So that was great. But let's get to where Conor. Casey, maybe didn't have a good game plan where you wanna start on bath things. Mark. It's hard for me to say. There's only one which is the teams shot had fifteen shots in the game. The Colorado Rapids fifteen shots in the game twelve shots. In the first half and three in the second half. That's all you need to know about this team. The other thing is that this is not a different but I think it, it, it frames what I just said a little bit, which is that the Rapids lost possession. Seventy thirty to Vancouver. Sixty nine thirty one. If you wanna be a pedantic and Matt, you're an engineer, who cancel drops of oil would falls out of Halliburton's. Well, so I know you wanna be pedantic, and so what that what that means is, and that, and that seventy thirty didn't change from the first half of the second half. So that meant that the Rapids change the way they, they counterattacked. They, they ceded possession to the opponent, which is a thing that we are gonna do for the rest of the season as Conor Casey's counterattacking low block bunker, deep defense. Plays itself out, but something drastically changed in the second half where not only do we see possession. But we, we really didn't put forth a lot of numbers pass the center of the field and that meant that we weren't really trying hard to get into the final third. There were only a few shots within the box in the second half or even passes. Sorry in the second half in, in the box. So that's a, that's a big shift. And I think it it's not a terrible idea to say we're gonna hold on for dear life, try to hold a to nothing or a two one lead. But you know you really put yourself in a bad situation when the other team knows you're not going for goal. It just means that they can commit more men forward and they can kinda Jedi mind trick you into playing more and more defensively while they play. More and more offense, which Neville ably almost always results in a goal. Now, I agree with you, Mark. You know as much as I love what I saw this team in the opening twenty thirty minutes or so. I hated pretty much everything from. Let's say thirty fifth forty th minute. At the absolute latest on through the end of the game. I could understand Casey saying, okay, it's late in the first half were up to nail. Let's drop back in our usual, you know, mid block. You know, one four four four four one four two two one one wide whatever you wanna call it, the, you know, the, the double hip, in the middle, the two relatively wide pushed up wingers, and then somebody floating or immediately underneath high Kamara. I'm okay with doing that for the final ten minutes of that, first half because you say you're up to nail. Let's try to get into the locker room to nail and protect that. But that's kinda predicated on you not making any critical mistakes that allow Vancouver to get back into the game. Jay go Rubio gives up PK Fredy Montero converts it. That's. Exactly the thing that you really didn't need. You could argue affectively a buzzer beater in terms of the end of the first half coming finally in stoppage time. And then there really weren't any adjustments in the second half rapid still kind of continue to play defensive as you mentioned. They creating a whole lot of opportunities. But anything that was going on from the success of the counter attack was lead there from wide standpoint. And I'm just not really sure what Conor Casey was sinking on that. You know, I saw I also thought the DA go Rubio defending that deep was really weird, like, when's the last time you saw like a striker winger attacking mid inside the box in their own third yanking guy down with his shoulder like that was weird to me. I get the idea like you know as a coach you say a lot of your players in certain situations. You know, you got gotta cover for a man if these loss. You've gotta come all the way back, but like he had no business being there. And somebody else was supposed to be doing that job or someone should have been stepping him face up instead of, you know, having Diego Rubio yank him backwards. Yeah. No, I agree with you, Mark. That was really be pummeling in the end. I mean to your point about Vancouver's saying, all right? Colorado's not going forward. We're gonna push guys up, you know, all the non who's normally left back for Vancouver was affectively a left winger the entire second half. And I just I didn't understand how Connor Casey didn't try to account for that or they didn't try to exploited that in the attack. You know, I personally not that I'm in any way position to coach in Major League Soccer at all, or at any level, professional soccer. I would've moved Yengo Rubio back in the middle of the park underneath Amara his natural position. I would move mosquito out wide who's very used to doing winger like things. In that play. And then I would afford app, some sort of speed option to check against Leon. And we didn't really see that from Diego Rubio, I've said it for a couple of weeks now, I think, Rubio's the most out of place of those four to five players who are gonna play on the wing. You know, I think one thing we do have to say for Colorado is I would argue their best to options at those positions left in the white right wide, midfielder are probably Jonathan Lewis on the left, who was with the US national team still in Sam Nicholson who is out with a hamstring injury. He sustained earlier in the week. So I you know, I understand that, but do more with what you have. And I thought some other adjustment they could have done could have made an impact, and they didn't really have a whole lot of pinch options. You know the one sub they made with Sebastian Anderson in the seventy seven th minute for Andre. She sheiky at that point, the game is still to one, maybe throw in Dylan Sern there. And having tried to do something for counterattacks standpoint, you know, maybe you move Palinha costs in new different role in bringing Johan Blomberg who's been not terrible in the games seen him. There wasn't any adjustment in terms of shape, or style of play or approach or anything Conor, Casey, basically, help, Pat, for the final at least fifty minutes in that game. And you saw in the final five minutes of the first half that was arrested for disaster, ultimately was disaster in the form of getting a to draw. Let's move onto big thing. Mark any other closing thoughts. We want to have on this, Matt. It was sad to seize act like math not have a great game. I it's, it's weird and the other thing that's related concept is in the battle of, let's get revenge on our former team the Rapids one even though they only drew two because Kamar to goal nNcholas. Mosquito had either one or he had an MLS assists in a regular assist. I think on the day and they both were just Kamara. An mosquito almost had another one early in the first half. They both had great games, or at least the first half Zach mcmath have that one play early in the first half where it was kind of a normal shot. And he he deflected with hands. It pops up over his head. He had to reach back in sleep it off the why the last second and it turned into like, you know, yacky sacks like disaster moment for him. I was co I mean I should not be rooting against the Rapids, but I was honestly glad that, that goal didn't go in, because it would have been so embarrassing for him. I'm a stand for. For exact mcmath, but, but, you know, the, the long narrative here is KYW, Kamara and Mesquita made their former team GIO bad about losing them. And Zach math did not accomplish the same thing. He might make things just relates on something that I've been talking about really for the last couple of shows now, Mark that I still, I still there are huge era bars right now for me in terms of understanding between where the Rapids were at the end of the losing streak in now in terms of how good they actually are, and I still have doubts based on the quality of composition, how much just the new coach bump wasn't affected. I think we're past the point you know, at this point now where it's just hearing a different voice that's Conor, Casey, rather than Anthony Hudson, regardless of how good that second voice is, I think we're past the point where that's no longer new affect. I think that's worn off, and now whatever's going now going on whatever's propagating going forward, will be the actual result of how good the. Players are, and what Conor Casey's doing with the assets he has. But I still just between that the injuries and all the other things. I'm still not sure whether or not will we from the Rapids, how different that is from where they were before, then I sense that there's somewhere in between, you know, the two points from thirteen games last in the Western Conference to where they've been, you know, say going into the lawsuit Mexico in the open Cup. And this was another data point. This is a critical game for the purposes of jumping teams to try and get any Western Conference playoff race. You know. Yes. The Rapids are only four points below the reds mind, but there's five teams that they have to jump in the process of that one of those teams being Vancouver, Whitecaps in that Saturday's ings a three pointer. The Rapids were up to nothing after twenty minutes that is a game that a playoff team sees out and gets a win in the Rapids to not do that, and it was against a relatively weak Vancouver, Whitecaps side who are missing players to injury international cops, and they're obviously. Be missing is for a bit longer as most of those call ups are Canadian nationals who are through the knockout rounds of the Gold Cup. So good for Canada, bad for the Whitecaps in that it was good for the Rapids, and the Rapids could not take advantage of that in the Rapids are about to hit murders row in terms of their schedule. And we're gonna get a much better idea of how good they are playing quality teas on a good run of form. And I'm still just I'm nervous that. If you know they don't get something against Friday's opponent. And let's see what happens against New England Revolution. So that maybe we're going to start to realize that the Rapids were not as good as their five game unbeaten streak in. Maybe it turns out, they're still going to be a middling team in the Western Conference. Maybe not support maybe not win spoon contender. But comfortably outside the playoff race with that, Mark. Let's look to this. Friday's game is coming Friday listeners at eight o'clock. It'll be a late start on Friday night at Dick's sporting park, Colorado Rapids will be hosting the current supporters shield leaders in Los Angeles FC the Rapids of curry. Played seventeen games out of thirty four game season. That gets us to the halfway Mark in twenty nineteen Rapids MLS season, Mark after the results of this past week on they are sitting back in twelve in the Western Conference on one point behind Vancouver Whitecaps. They are still ahead of FC Cincinnati in the support she'll race. But they have six points from seventeen games played for wins nine losses and four draws a negative or goal differential, will be taking on L AFC as I mentioned, who are comfortably top of the West End. The supporters shield standings with a six any five point lead in all those. They have thirty seven points from sixteen games played eleven wins one loss and four draws N A, plus six goal differential that one loss came in a mid week rogue game against the Vancouver, Whitecaps that's not a plus six goal differential. That's a plus twenty six twenty six go there. And they have a and they also have a way record of four one in three. This will have their third game all time playing at altitude. This is the juggernaut nationalist from Mark if I had to guess, right now, I would say that they're on pace city by number regular season metrics. Let's just go with total points in the in the post shootout era of MLS thirty four game season. They've got a chance to be with New York rebels last year and what Toronto seeded a couple of years ago. Bob Bradley's their head coach what he's gotten out of that midfield. Three with Mark, Anthony ks lati- blessings of the world is straight up nasty and terrifying. They haven't missed the beat in the rents seem on departing the club as goalkeeper. Eddie cigarette has stepped in invent fantastic. I think Walker Zimmerman is well on his way to being the favourite for the defender of the year, they've got to excellent fullbacks in, in why am I totally missing the up right now in Jordan Harvey's, mostly are left. Back and then Stephen Badir shirt who's there, right back. And then, of course they've got a punch headed monsters in, in the attack. Starting with Carlos Vela their number ten on who is not with Mexico for the Gulf Cup. He was snubbed depending on who you ask by tots Keno. So he'll be in with the squad. They have adopted the Amande in Christner Ramirez, who they can both play at number nine both of them in kind of underwhelming. But there's been some issues injuries and some form issues as well. And then they have Diego Rossi, who is the Robin to Carlos villas, Batman. This team is stacked from fronts back, Mark. What do you see in them and how the hacked the Rapids, try to get a result against them on Friday, Lee win off the bench? I mean like that's I mean he's been injured for a lot of season but he's he came back in his slip into things. This is just a this is just the loss, we're gonna lose, and that's what's going to happen. That's fine. There's nothing wrong with that. There are some games that you go into, and you can prepare as much as you can or them, but there is no tactical plan by which Colorado can get out of this game with the win. It's possible. They could draw but it requires the offense being all fired up. I mean, I think the thing that really hurts, Colorado. The most is that I think their best player offensively Jonathan Lewis in, they won't have him, and that's a killer for Colorado, the flip side of that is that L AFC won't have Mark Anthony cake because he still away. Also with Canada for the Gold Cup. So those are this not quite an even trade because LAF can slot. A whole bunch of other folks, there, I just think this team has way too much firepower. They're working really, really well. Every player is playing at the at the top of their ability. They come in what looks like a four three three but defensively kinda drops back into like a horse a flat for for two quite often, or four, four one one depending on how you look at it sometimes books, four one four one but point is this team is, is the best team in Major League Soccer averaging two point three six points per game. They're on pace. Comfortably to be the best team in MLS history. The question for them is not whether they win. Supporters shield at say that's without something dramatic going wrong, almost so halfway disease. It's very likely that win supporter shield, it's whether they'll go forth and, and. Win MLS cop and potentially since they're still in the open Cup also, whether they can challenge Toronto by pulling the travel. I think that's the conversation. So, you know, can they win on a Friday night against Colorado at altitude? The answer is, yeah. Da like this is just a hiccup for them. The wrath is have to think very differently than Elliott about how they prepare for this game. I just don't think that the way Colorado sets up, which is counterattacking in defending deep is gonna work at all against an Elliott c team that will possess the ball. They won't turn it over in any dangerous areas, and they will smother you, you know possession pointless possession is thing that s k c does when they're not at their best. That's not Elliott this year. They are possession with purpose. They give it to Vella you know, right on the edge of that final third. And then he just destroys you like he'll go in by himself, or he'll play the one to to somebody else and dude, dude. Things is nothing. You can do to stop it. So we're just gonna lose this one. It'd be really nice to not lose by two nickels. I've got a couple notes make on this Mark, you mentioned, Mark, Anthony k missing or on for Canada. L AFC will also be without centreback Walker Zimmerman who is, of course, with the United States men's national team. So obviously two big players. They're kind of up the middle that they're missing deal Silva. Probably the most likely to slot in at centerback Brazilian thirty two years old enemies girl, probably the main anchor on there. They also have I don't know how we haven't mentioned him given our profane love for demands, Mark. But let's, let's talk about Edward esta who is a Colombian national twenty two years old. Nobody heard of him. When Bob Bradley brought him in, you could argue that he's gotten as much of not more out of after west, then he has Lee win or Lateef blessing has just been solid on both sides of the ball and not really a true, I would say more a number six than a number. Eight but does a lot of number eighty things. And if we're talking about just looking at the stats compared with what he does Mark, guess what Edward to us says amyloid fantasy value was at the end of the spring season, the minimum maybe. No, he was ten point four million dollars. Marley out. Good. He was at. That's how good he was as far as passing as far as defensive bonuses, as far as offensive bonuses for those of you on comparison right now listeners of Wayne, Rooney is worth eleven million dollars like most strikers, number ten Edward to esta as a number eight number six for Elliot c as price at the level of a barely playoff. He's best attacking player forward or central attacking midfielder would be priced that has how good he isn't MLS fantasy that is a reflection of all the actions that he has defensive offense of in passing being a really really solid middle. The park guy. He is a twenty two year old quivalent of Michael Brad. In that aspect. And I feel like anything that you would lose in walkers Zimmerman being out into Neil Silva, being in as it will be able to fill or they'll just have other ways of, filling in that gap that are still going to make things relatively difficult for KYW Kamara on the other thing that maybe talk about this team here, Marcus that they will be relatively well rested. Even though they're still in the US open Cup. Unlike the Rapids, they have not played since this past Thursday, the twentieth of June, where they played and hosted San Jose earthquakes in the feed them as part of the busy week that all of MLS has with the fourth of July coming up next week, they're playing Wednesday at sporting Kansas City. But you figure, you know, K L AFC, had what nine day at eight days rest going into the game on Friday. They don't play until the following Wednesday. Yes, they have to travel, but it's can sporting Kansas City, who were depleted injured. Right now if there's a game that, Bob, Bradley thinking, let's go all in with my starters right now. It's probably the Colorado game and then you figure you can get away with venture. Players in some rotation against sporting Kansas City in that. I don't think you're gonna see a weaker version of Elliot. See because they're playing on a Friday or schedule congestion or because they're playing out to suit. Let's talk about Carlos Vela Mark, who I would say is the pit of the analysts modern tan normally listeners when I think of number ten, I think, of the traditional number of g-go Maradonna type a lien messy type Hoosier central attacker, who's going to string the ball together, who's gonna connect things from the back midfield, and then also try and do some dancing around in the box. Create scoring opportunities in to pass to your forward for happens and Carlos villa does that but he does that is the modern number ten where he's just on attacking playmaker. Who's on the ball all the time? But also all over the field. He'll start normally on the wing but he'll cut inside who flip back and forth throughout the game along with Diego Rossi. So he's not easy to guard compared to some of the other one the other players who. Who the Rapids zip play during their winning streak, Mark, like a federal geek wine, who is relatively central where you could just say Jack price in one of the centrebacks you're going to be committed him. Same thing, which Aren container holding midfielder Santa back. You're going to be committed to him every single defender at some point is going to have Carlos Vela immediately in front of them breathing down their neck on the ball in this game in that. I think it's going to be much, much harder to game plan around Carlos villa. And that's what really terrifies he from a defensive standpoint, especially if the Rapids or getting less than forty percent zest in this game in that Mark. I don't see how they keep Elliot off the scoreboard in this game. And just with what they're gonna have defensively, unless they're just unless it's just bunker counter trying win a foul, and then try and be on Danilo Silva in the air. I think the Rapids are gonna have a hard time from the run of play getting anything on Elliot. See even if they're doing on the counter attack. If you told me Sam Nicholson, John Lewis were both available, and we're going to be able to start and perform in the whole month. He minutes, I might be able to see draw on this one, but I think the I think the best, the Rapids can probably hope for is in early set piece. Maybe they catch it offender sleeping. And they get a set piece goal, and then it's may be bunker down in its squeaky bomb time for assault thirty minutes. Let Elliot's see have the ball deeper, a solid sixty minutes. Probably and hope that you can get a one, one draw on this. I think the Rapids can get a draw in this game. I still think the most likely result of the three L AFC win draw. Rapid swin will probably still be L AFC win know in that it'll be points dropped. But, you know this is like Elliot's gonna do that to a lot of teams at the Rapids are going to compete with for a playoff spot in this one. But you know, you know, Saturday's game was a draw that felt like a loss. I think if the rap is get out of here withdraw, it'll be a draw that definitely feels like three points if not more. Yeah, I'll just add. I think I like what you said, if we wanna be pedantic and nerdy about what is Carlos Zola, or how does he play the position when you said he? Was a ten I was thinking in my head like it's true because that's what people were telling me last year about his position. And that's a lot about how Bob Bradley was talking about Carlos Vela, but he plays the ten like messy blazed the ten in the sense that messy plays. It almost as a wing, which is not really, how attend is normally thought of he in that respect. A lot of classic soccer position, nerds would say he's like seven if you look at the way, Bob, Bradley writes out his lineups. Or if you look at the way he's been categorized on MLS fantasy. He's categorized as a forward, which means definitely not attempt, which also he always plays kind of between the lines hail. He likes to have the Amande or Christian Ramirez. You know, Lee the line in front of him to hold up that space for him, sometimes there's two strikers ahead of him. He's in that space, recess behind them, which makes him. Mm what's often called by classic tactical nerves, especially in the Premier League false nine so you can call them atten-. You can come a false mind. You can call seven in all of those are technically sort of accurate, and I don't think anybody would would fight one last thing, I want to say on the roster of L AFC, which just shows, I think it's as interesting point to show how, how much they got the roster right by comparison to the Colorado Rapids. They missed on one of their DP's, unrest, Horta, and Horta was sent home about a month ago to Portugal, where he plays for a s c bra and basically returned after fifteen months of not being effective at all having some really terrible games. In fact, which means that L AFC has an open DP slot. And knowing the way L AFC spends much. Any in the amount of insane cash. They have behind their team. They even open DP slot and the secondary transfer window opens up in about eleven days. So I would keep your eyes out on the rumor wire for seeing who LES's could bring in. I don't think there's, I think short of maybe the top fifteen players in the world. I think everybody else is, is, is a definite possibility. If you haven't heard of them, whoever they get is likely to be someone spectacular anyways, they may they probably will go get someone who's on the young side as opposed to the old side, but they will likely go to one of the big leagues, and they will likely be willing to pay a seven or eight figure transfer fee for whoever by comparison, the Colorado Rapids, only have one DP on the roster right now, they won't be going to get anybody at midseason and I have spoken to folks in the front office than Li Rapids would like to avoid in. General paying transfer fees because transfer fees are very, very difficult to deal with on your on your salary budget. They really hit your Tam, or your DP money in your in your salary cap in ways that can cripple a team for years. The last couple times, the Rapids of beta transfer fee. It worked out really badly yet to clarify that Mark. What happens with way, when you think about the actual money transfer with the transfer fee, effectively the transfer fee calms a big lump sum in the depending on future considerations that can be due at a separate bate from accounting standpoint that happens immediately. So the Rapids played a chance for fee for the now departed on boats. Hang they paid a transfer fee for sculpturing Gashi, as soon as the transfer became official in the paper officially, they got those players rights not money was sent to the parent clubs that they were purchasing. From from amyloid standpoint, a look at the total money invested for the player over the course of the length of the contract. So that includes player bonuses. That comes the transfer fee, that includes other things all of that collective sum of money that you say, over the course of the contract, you're going to spend on that player that all gets spread out over the course of the length of the contract. So for tamp layer as opposed to just paying that transfer fee up front that transfer is spread over the length of contract, say four year contract, like with the case of Jack prize, therefore, you're getting hit as opposed to saying, we have all this Tam, now, we wanna spend it now that Tam is that is Tam that you are earmarking for twenty twenty twenty twenty one twenty twenty to be on, and that's hard for a finance conscious team like the Rapids, that say, let's spend the money on, we'll deal with later because we've got bottomless pockets whore, the LES's the NYC's the land is the world that make life much easier for them on the international transfer. To ask things that I'm gonna point in that Mark one going back to the roster. Spot just off the top of my head. Like, if I'm thinking, oh, Elliot's sees, like, oh, we haven't opened EP saw I can't think of an obvious position that they need to spend it in. They really have no -sition of weakness right now in, I would argue the Carlos Vela off this team and Elliot c are still probably a playoff team. That is just how good they are. And how much debt they have good stuff that pop Bradley's. And the last thing I'll bring out just getting back to Carlos Vela on that note. Mark, you made a couple of really good points, depending on the era of soccer, that you are from, or that you're used to in the part of the world that you're in, you have a different nomenclature, different term jargon to describe Carlos fell. And I think that speaks to how much how, how good is intangibles are. And how good he is. My dad has this really, really common motif that he'll bring up with really quality players in any sport really that he says, pick a player. That you can get a great or one of the all time greats and then pick out what you think he does. He or she does best. And if you have a hard time pointing out like one key thing that they do, it's really, really good. That's the indication of their greatness, because the greats truly go to have one absolute talisman that makes them better than everybody else. They're really, really good at everything. And there's a few a handful of things that they're just ten percent better than or just one percent better, in the absolute key moment. If I think of Michael Jordan, right now, Mark. Yes, he was a fantastic shooter. He was a great athlete. But there's just one thing that I can think of that he was particularly good at. He was physically indestructible, but he wasn't just the greatest pure bench. Presser like forty yard dash, you know, when I like the high jump to test, you know, how much vertical you have. He wasn't the best of that in the NBA world, you could argue that he was one of the smartest he certainly add intelligence that's critical to I think any aspect of sore, but it's not just one thing that you. Said that he was better than than everybody else. What's the key thing about Latif blessing? He's faster than everybody else. What's the key thing about Lee win? He's s'more skilled in everybody else. What's the key thing about KYW Kamara? He's better than a lot of people in the air. But that's the one thing that you think about when you think of those three players, you'd have maybe have a heart. You have to think on what's a second thing that they do that. You know, top five percent in MLS over the course of their amls rare, you'd have a really hard time coming up with a third thing. That's why an aging Lee win a KAI Kamara. A Latif blessing our budget players, I think high, Kamara technically on targeted allocation, money, why they're not DT's why they're not regularly. Why they're not? You know, e- single-handed most critical focal point of the teams that they're on. And why they're probably not considered as of right now, the best players in MLS or a world class player while I can name four or five things that Carlos Vela does that are all good. That he's really really fast. He's really sculling ball. He's good on set pieces. He's. On setting up players. He's good on faking his hips, and making runs and occupying the space. He's really good at drawing fouls right now. Those are all things that he does that he is top ten in Emma lesson. That's why he gets paid the big bucks. Why that's probably. And that's why he's probably winning MVP this year. One thing that I want to address Mark before we get to our one ask ACH L this week. I'll say that this mice omitted ask HDA L item particularly care about this. But I wanna know your opinion on the also about rosters came out this week, no, Colorado Rapids players. And then Nick Renato picked the Commissioner pig Overton Howard, your general thoughts. I think it's deserve Tim our house and had a good year in a couple years, Tim Howard was one of the best goalkeepers in league history before he was sold to England. So he had a lot of the kind of glory of us. Also, the number one for the US national team. So I think one of the things about Commissioner pick for a guy like Nick Raimondo is that it's a lifetime achievement award. One of the things that's been, no. Outed repeatedly on one of our favorite other podcasts, which is extra time radio. The official MLS podcasts, one of the fun, things about that podcast me, new, Matt, where independent journalists we get to say mean a nasty things about Major League Soccer or the Colorado Rapids, if we want to there are a little bit stuck saying the corporate standard corporate line, but they've made some really interesting points regarding. Nick Remond does career Nick Romano in his entire molest career, he never pulled, first of all, he never played abroad. He only played in Major League Soccer. He was never the number one for the US men's national team. And he's never been goalkeeper of the year. And so I think to some degree the Commissioner giving him the final chant the final slot on the all star team to play against arsenal is an opportunity to say, hey, you know you are a respected player. We love you will miss you here is an important honor at the end of your career playing Arcelor playing let Madrid right? Yes. In Atlanta earned notes in Orlando. Yeah. It's funny that I that I immediately went well, or arsenals come the United States, they must be playing analysts than I was like, wait. I don't think they are. It's, it's Athletico, but anyways. John on fine with it. And also, you know, last last point on this is, you know, we all know that Tim hasn't really stood out last couple years with the Rapids. He's been fine. I'm out crunch the numbers eventually to see how this season's going last year. He was a slightly below average goalkeeper in Major League Soccer this, this year to date. I think he's been average or even slightly above average. But, you know, we'll crunch the numbers later. See, but, you know, I don't think those arguments say he deserved by his play a spot on the also team who gets that third spot ahead of him is almost immaterial. Yeah. No, I agree with you. Mark. You know, I've, I've been on the record on a number of different mediums that particularly care about the MLS all star game like I'll still watch. But in terms of like the might watching interest versus you know, how much I'm all in on that are committed to understanding it or making big deal, who's on the team or how the team plays like I couldn't really care less. Let everybody get on the fee. So everybody can have their moment moment for the players that it matters to. Let's see them play. Some fun soccer not take it too seriously. If that means here on know doing he'd be up for forty yards with nobody marking him. I'm totally fine with that. Let's let's see a fun game that isn't necessarily. It's light-hearted isn't really taken seriously. Let's get everybody on the field. And make sure that nobody ends up getting hurt, especially if the games on terp Orlando city state soccer stadium grass surface, thankfully, but in terms of like Rapids player, not getting it. You know, Don Garber usually goes for the sentimental, pick with some of his Commissioner picks. You know it somebody, you know, it's, it's not somebody who's necessarily deserving. In terms of what has immediately happened in the six months of MLS play prior Q the all star game. How am I remember when Frank Lampard in Stephen Girard? I think they came in the same number, and they'd made maybe played a total of ten games combined for their respect him less teams than Don Garber, put them on there, because, you know, that would have been you know, that was relevant from an international stamp. And it was cool to see those guys know included in the greater European stars on the scene, even though from an MLS standpoint they didn't deserve in as aging as they were. I don't think you could argue that they were twenty they were one of the two of the best twenty three players on MLS in MLS at that time when they entered it and, you know, I wrote an article in the offseason, one of my evergreen contents for last word were, I did the in the NHL, Mark, and in a lot of the college football awards. The awards are named after particular player. So there was a really, really great goalkeeper in the thirties and forties, for the NHL whose last name was Vesna the goalkeeper the goaltender the euro award in the NHL now is called eve as no trophy. So I did that with all the MLS awards than I had to throw Nick Raimondo, as the goalkeeper award. Obviously, the MLS all is already named after Landon, Donovan, one of only three players to win multiple times. And I thought Nick Romano deserved of that given you know, he spent his entire career in molest. You know, but your point he's never actually won it with. A little bit ironic. So I had a hard time with that one. So I think this is a nice sentiment where you know hours gonna get all the love and abberration already. He's got plenty of software. He's gonna be in the limelight. You know, I'm sure he's gonna get free tickets forever. Tin for life when he finally hangs up booze. He's gonna be relevant from US national Husam point. I'm sure you know, red bull arenas gonna throw him a big pregame or halftime party when he goes back. Know to jersey for the final time like he's gonna get his fanfare, and his swansong and really, you know, Nick Romando significance in that is really dependent on how good are Acela right now? I'm not sure that they're gonna make the playoffs as much as I don't think the Rapids are gonna make the playoffs, and this is a guy who's been not taken seriously for most of his career. I know we're not maybe you know, we're gonna get some hate mail for the comments. We've made given his ARA socal buddies five foot ten you know, he had great stuff at UCLA. He's been doubted his entire career he literally got traded and then asked to go back when he didn't like the situation with New York. Red bulls riyal, Salt Lake called in said gives anyone your goalkeepers like will give you a random like expanse, like pick crafts, nothing. So it gets traded ourself or literally, you know, a bag of soccer balls in the legend with them wins. MLS cop with them is a regular with them, like three hundred and forty games in hounding, and then, you know, like you said he was never the number one for the us national team is you. US national team career. Mark has spanned sixteen years and it's just unfortunate. This guy was a relatively middle. The row keeper MLS under size and came at the end of the Casey Keller in the Brad Friedel's playing, and then as soon as like, okay, I'm going to be the guy. Here's brag on, and here's Tim Howard, so any only has twenty two caps and his entire six year her with US national team. So I mean if he wants this one all star game in that means Tim how're get some extra arrester gets to go hang out with the fam- in Memphis, and that has him worry recharge for whenever that next game is for the rapid snap benefits. The Rapids in that hurts Nick Raimondo and our cell because he's got travel mid week all the way to Orlando to probably not play. The other thing I'll say the all star game is still kind of a bunch of BS is over almost half the roster. Picked by the fans and four Atlanta players got in really only one of whom is even slightly deserving. So, you know, it's a it's a popularity contest and unfortunately, the Rapids aren't sexy in with some of the picks their people importance get to. He will who they think are important and Don Garber values Niekro, mottos contribution of Major League Soccer and I respect that now they need to, they need to wait at better. They need to give the fans slightly lesser of vote because of how whacked things are towards Seattle in Atlanta. My vote, of course as completely biased the North American Soccer reporters deserve a stronger. Or any voted that ballot two last things on neck Raimondo, I think it speaks very highly of how good he was that a podcast on the Colorado Rapids can be respectful of Nick Raimondo say, like he's our enemy. He's are sworn hated rival, and yet he has earned our respect. I hope that in his final game in Colorado. He'll get a solid round of applause from the crowd just as you would any adversary, who wears the black hat in the cowboy movie the last thing to say about this. Let's not go too far down the road on poor poor Nick Ramada, who's never been recognized in the who for him. He won the two thousand nine MLS Cup on a which was spectacular game. I remember that game, one of the first MLS cups. I remember really tuning into and paying attention to any was man of the match. So I mean that's pretty, you know, most players in the world will put aside. The MVP trophy or the goalkeeper the year trophy or you know, fifty caps with the national team to the able to have won the trophy for their club and be the man of the match game. So, you know, Nick next gotten is plotted. He's all right. Yeah. And he's gonna hang up the gloves, than probably a mmediately walk in do some academy, goalkeeping role with real Salt Lake, and he's made plenty money over his career. Saw him, the wife and the kids are gonna be fine. You know, enjoying their days you know, as he as he you know, is the watcher on the wall. The wall, such that was very big house in, in Salt Lake. He's fine. Okay. One little correction that I do have to make you Marcus said that you, you hope Remond. No gets a, you know, a nice little clap at the end of his last game in Colorado pending. The playoffs, Nick Ramona's was already played his last game, exporting park this yet is not paying attention. It was during the losing streak in our cell one. So I don't blame you. Without listeners. Let's go to our one and only ask ACH shelves is kind of off of a Twitter threat from one of our tweets that we then self submitted to ask, h h L. So I guess if nothing else, thank you to Jason actual ringing up the topic that we will now bring in this was off of a tweet that we have from holding the Highline Mark on saying that we normally think Rapids Twitter overreacts to bad things. But y'all got a right to the Matt about tonight, referring, the draw against in coober pitswon, a great opportunity didn't adjust left door open and Raina took advantage. And then Jason Maxwell responded to that with a good example of why the brakes should be tapped on the air quotes, remove Casey's. Interim tag and air quotes discussion. I have seen a lot Mark on Twitter on Facebook on Reddit of some fans wanting the interim tax be removed from Casey that this could be over the course of a continued. Good run a form. That the Rapids have an opportunity for this coming Friday and sell AFC, or even if wait till the end of the season if Conor Casey gets the team in the playoffs the interim tax should be removed. We've both heard Nabi there's a bunch of rumors about the rapid doing a full wide. Search pork Smith has not interested to make this move that they're not gonna do anything in the summer transfer window if they don't have the coaching search ironed out. Obviously, this is something that Conor Casey's focused on Conor Casey's focused on the Rapids getting results, your take on Conor Casey as a potential candidate for this, and how much maybe we're being. We are victims of recency bias in those thinking that Conor, Casey want a couple of games. Immediately should be given the full time job. If that's not like most important. Question team has to deal with this year. I don't know what is who you pick for managers really a huge saying, especially considering that you could argue very strongly that in my entire life living in Colorado, Matt, which is no longer the case. I never saw them get the manager thing, right? I saw them. Shortly after I came to Colorado higher, Pablo Mastroeni, who had really been brought on right before, then as a technical advisor, and then when Oscar Paret left, they were like a we don't have anybody to coach while Pablo's the club hero will put him in and see how he does end Anthony Hudson. And, you know, I think the problem was Connor pacey is not that he's not it's not that he's not a good coach. It's not that he's not. He might it's not that he doesn't attention have the intellect or the skill. I think it's basically a problem of history in narrative, which is the club has only what five people on their ring of honor above the stadium, and they've already burned through two of them in the course of their life with the club, one of them, Pablo Mastroeni, and the other one is Paul Bravo. Both of whom used to. Work in the front office, and don't anymore and probably don't want to be associated with the club at all anymore for how things ended do you really wanna take another guy off the ring of honor and see how he does for a year despite the fact that he's never coached at a high level? And then potentially, you know is it doesn't work out on a year. Say, well, it's been fun. Goodbye Conor Casey literally have nobody on the that ring of honor, except for. Jamie Smith at Marcello Babol, Jamie Smith who I haven't seen back at a Colorado Rapids game in five years, Marcello ball, who is contractually obligated to be at every Colorado Rapids game. So I don't know that you wanna burn through your club legends like that. That's my take that may be a weird side take but I can't help but imagine that. That's a legitimate worry of the Colorado Rapids, that sending Conor, Casey out in offensive sad press. It didn't work out. And now we're never gonna talk to you again way is would be a terrible way to end that relationship sending him off with a twenty one gun salute and saying, thank you for doing service. Look lob now we're gonna bring on someone who can build us forward for the next five years. It makes a lot more sensitive. So to me, it does not matter, whether Conor Casey wins, the next seventeen games of ro or not. He probably shouldn't be the head coach of the Colorado Rapids. To start twenty twenty. I agree with you, Mark, I guess, I'll take a thirty thousand nor the, the MLS league wide view on this, which is in last off-season. I would say, progressing, over the course last navy two at the most three years MLS is up nanny in terms of what the caliber or the minimum requirement is in order to be a coach. We seen some teams go out and have real on holding power in gravity on the international level. In terms of the big names like thoughts are Tino. If I just look at some of the coaches who've been appointed, you know, in recent in terms of recent coaching hires, you know, you have Frank born Atlanta, who had a really, really poor spark, but is respected in a lot of really, really great things for some big clubs, I ax in Milan, or one of them on, I can't remember which. You know, in, in Europe, you know, you had you have who is it in San Jose earthquakes? So I can't materiel Mehta who coached for three years at Sheva steak, Waddell, HARA while they were kind of going through administration. The players weren't being played in the paid and the players continue to play through the COPA mex- final end the Champions League all the way up to the final while not getting played so being protests in while they pay while they were playing Matisse made one every single trophy, there was to do in three years, which, as far as Jeeva steak, Waddell, HARA head coaches concern is he Charney that he lasted, and he got an absolute dumpster fire there, and he managed to get the team to win on one of the few clubs in Mexico that Silva's not allow you to play international players. I would shudder to think Mark of any team in analysts arbitrarily just saying we're not gonna have any international players every single player on our squad who plays for us has to be eligible. The United States, the Canadian men's national team if a Canadian team wanted to do that. And how good they would be just not being able to pull in South American talent or tout from the max or players from Europe. Alameda, had success with that New England Revolution. They brought him Bruce Arena. Yes, maybe an old guard failed with the national team, but one of the most respected coaches in Emel in amyloid history. And so the like over the course of an off season Kayla porter got passed over for two or three jobs in their media was assumed at this point. That if a head coaching job opportunity opened up halo porter would have been the like yeast safety pick on that. In terms of we went out and tried to get somebody internationally. We try to get this guy we could make the only were. Let's just go with Kayla porter because he's available and he knows molester. Now there's a lot of fans in Columbus Ohio, who are thinking that he's a bus should be fired for how the team has started Caleb porter had Portland timbers as a perennial playoff team as a team. In the Western Conference one amyloid cough decided that it wasn't going to work out with the front office parted on. Good terms, having made the playoffs that year and then over the course of a year, long sabbatical just hanging out with the family like amyloid got to the point where Caleb porter was an underwhelming. Head coaching higher as the guy who had an MLS Cup ring to his name. Yeah. And so, like, at this point, like I'm sorry Conor. Casey, no head coaching experience outside of this year. Won a couple of games is playing relatively conservative defensive soccer is just like so far below that level. Now the Rapids had rapid Jew or Rapids eighteen in US DO sell championship league one, I would absolutely give him the next time that head coaching opportunity is up. But I think Conor case needs something else on his resume twice the size being player cov- legend to get an opportunity that doesn't meet immediately have me think, well pork Smith's gonna give him two years. And then if it doesn't work. Out. He's going to get fired. And then Conor Casey's never gonna wanna step foot at dick sporting park ever again. And you know, to correct myself slightly, but to, to underscore your point like that. It's, it's a broader point about the evolution of American soccer. But it plays exactly into your admittedly. Brilliant point. Matthew about understanding that the standard of coaching analysts has grown so the Rapids headed interim coach at the end of twenty seventeen which Steve cook. And they he you know, he got himself a job with o'casey energy at the end of that year has been coaching for. Okay. See for the last two years. This year has been a really good year for. Okay. See they're doing really well sees having a good year. And the other thing is a lot of these US L teams. I mean almost Matt almost every team in US L is either at one of three stages of development at this point is. They are a two team. And they have no aspirated of growing into the I league there in expansion, or a newish team, and they're still kind of really excited about bringing soccer to their town, or they have MLS aspirations. I mean there are ten twelve fourteen teams in the league that legitimately want to move up to Major League Soccer Las Vegas, San Diego, which is just announced they're coming in North Carolina has been very aggressive about it. I've talked to lots of folks that Pittsburgh river hounds think they're, you know, they will eventually get there. I don't I think they're a long way off. But I think that it I think the possibility is there. They have a they own their own soccer facility. It's in a beautiful location. Supposed to be expandable up to eighteen thousand plus there's no NBA team in town. So there are lots of reasons why almost every team in, in USFL Indianapolis, Saint Louis on. They all think they can go up. Those are great places for coach like Conor Casey to go next because he gives. Them the shine of big time legitimacy. They give him a sandbox to play in without all the pressure and he can save face by saying, like, you know, I am still a head coach of a major franchise. I mean end to finally understand the point know. You know, my are poor listener since I moved to a US L city have had been told over and over again, guides USO cities. It's okay, it's not bad down here, but the quality is very good. You know, the leftback for the Pittsburgh river hounds played tonight for Jonah as a result, and got a one, one draw and that roster is full of US L players. So is the Trinidad Rosser so was the, the curse our actually the best players on the curse our in Panama and Nicaragua? They're all US L. So, you know, the standard is there the quality's there, there's good players. There's no shame in, in dropping down to, to the US championship for a guy like Conor Casey. Yeah. Yeah. So I guess the last thing I'll say and then we'll get outta here. Mark is just a reminder that this is a, this is a long-term decision. This is something that pork Smith in everybody with the club should take their time and due diligence with, and they should let things play out with the DP roster slot situation is the fact that they're probably not getting anything done in time to really do something in the summer transfer window, not that they have much flexibility in which to do. So there's no real position for them to really make any Russia anything, you know, get stuff off the books. You know, there's been a you know, not that I respect any of the sources that it's come out on. But there's been some rumblings that potentially Danny Wilson could be on the move or there'd be some interest from like a league one side, for example, like if there's not, particularly for that, if there's aided United, there's an opportunity like to, you know, if you know if, if the club's pretty consistent, you know, if, if they're like last year, if there was an opportunity to, you know, let Skelton, gosh, go on a free, for example. You know something of that. Level. I think we're going to do that. But in anything, it's gonna be jetting out, you know, some of the, you know, some of the old clutter in the cupboards to make room to do something new under that new regime. And I think they should let the rest of the season play out as it goes. Now, maybe Conor Casey does get something done, you know, if he wins the next seventeen games market wins border shield. Okay. Let's take that into account if nothing else if he's able to do something continue to develop good relationships, if I were pork, I would probably ask a potential interview or sit down or contract negotiations with potential next head coach, who isn't Conor Casey, like I would ask him what he thinks about that. Maybe have Connor involved in one of those meaning say, hey, could be get along. You know, would you want me on the staff? You know, say what you will about the Anthony Hudson era of MLS. I think from an offensive standpoint for the players who were still on the squat. I think Conor Casey was a nice little bridge from that enacted. Dots between the new regime in the new staff coming in the gist ING players under the blow master rainy era? And I think Conor Casey. Do that again for whoever the next head coaches. I think worst case scenario, you know, you know he gets an opportunity to say as the offense coordinator, do south Kamara. He's done great things with Andrea. She knew she key. I think he keeps that role. And I think he in that next head coach could work things out, have a functional relationship given Conor Casey standing within the club. You know, if that doesn't end up working out, then, you know, go work under c-, Trish shoot. Or maybe at some point in a year or two suture shoot wants to leave Colorado string switchback, given the Rapids have the -ffiliated. And Brian crow comes now, the general manager of the boys in black. I think Conor Casey would definitely be candidates. He consider for that job. Maybe in their he works kinks out or figures something's out or some of the stuff where he's not as tactically naive is he may have shown at times in the game against fan Cooper, and then that's a better version. If that means they're grooming him. You know, like a, a brand new minor league manager starting out in single A, working his way up, and then eventually getting opportunity with big club. Then I think that's something consider obviously Conor Casey has to be interested in that. But let things. Play out the things that they may. And, you know, if it ends up the Rapids are still one of the worst teams in the Western Conference than maybe Conor. Casey isn't ready to take the job fulltime after all.

Is it really a rivalry if only one team wins? Vela runs amok as Heineken Rivalry Week kicks off

"You're listening to extra time driven by continental t._i. Goodness is also like to have some more dhabi's absolutely ridiculous. I like like i love everybody. Every single day goes into the tory. Try to some greens nothing and you guys <hes> from new york org new york. You are listening to extra time driven by continental a._t. And t. m._l._s. studios in midtown manhattan. I am andrew we with but one partner and soccer author that is bobby warshaw. What's up bobby. It's heineken rivalry week. Say that fast five times. Give it a try for me right now. Hainan rivalry week heineken rivalry week heineken rivalry silvery week heineken rival. We thought you had it. I thought you had it. You just didn't quite make it to the. We've got a big show today. We're excited to be here. It's early morning. We got our coffee. If it was past noon i would say we would crack a heine but it's not so we won't but it's been a great week so far wednesday gotta start at atlantic cup red bulls winners <music> p._k. D._c. Fans didn't like that one and then l. a._f._c. Absolutely dominant just wiped san jose off the field or though i gotta say san jose did have chances metabolism. It'll be mad about those. He was mad about some other things as well. We got a great show for you today. It might just be us but we're bringing in everybody from everywhere. Max brito is gonna join us in just one and second from los angeles. Mike conte he who called both of us idiots. It's gonna join as well. He's the voice of atlanta united on nine hundred nine the game in atlanta. We've got patrice bernier to talk about what bobby remmy guard al yeah as coach wilmer cabrera in and patrice step into an assistant coaching debt we collected all the tweets tweets and i won't read them here but it's basically the who's who of the unless reporting world the taylor twelve minced the palton oreos the matt doyle's. I hesitate to put his name in that group loop to saying well. My mind is blown lower. Our blower case lowercase were you. How how how surprised were you by that. I mean nothing surprises me at this point in this league but yeah there's a it's. It's a little speculative. We'll talk about it. I think i have some decent ideas on why they might decide to go to to wilmer cabrera with this move okay and this week saint louis official like it wasn't a secret. It wasn't a rumor rumor anymore. It was basically official but they hit the dance. They hit the stage. They awarded team number twenty eight to saint louis. M._l._s. for blue fill grooms a co host of the u._s. L. show been uncovering team in saint louis. He's a native his absolutely wanted team and now he has. He's gonna explain to us what the culture is like in saint louis and what this team might look like come. I believe twenty twenty two correct and listen. I'm very excited for saint louis but i'm getting nervous really what i'm getting never sponsor taken up before mechanics. Oh boy <hes> well. You know we gotta get our bid going guys. You need to be more. Let's kick more public with your support for that one before we get to max here and i don't want on a short shrift. Atlantic cup and folks are gonna say oh it's because it's losing relevance and look at imola soccer dot coms narrative machine going in to high drive. I mean we'll we'll get to it. Wayne really got a red card it was i'm not gonna say the level of intensity that maybe we've seen in the best games in the past but it was still a good game but it wasn't l. a._f._c. a._f._c. It wasn't the historic run. They continue to be on. It wasn't carlos vela hitting twenty six fifteen. He's got forty. One goals scored assist fifteen tina. Moss teams have forty one or less goals just scored. That's one player third. Goal differential is plus forty six. They beat san jose for nothing and they i made it look just exceedingly easy at times last night on matchdays central. You're in one of those rare sort of moods. <hes> you were inspired. Bobby yet felt feeling it. What were you feeling well. The main thing that i feel right now is what drives anything ford but including a soccer league and for me andrew that's intellectual alexa innovation right. There's some idea that maybe just sheer willpower. Enforce can cause something to move forward but the main thing is intellectual capacity to try new things thanks to really raise the bar on how the people in that industry goal about thinking innovating in what they do and we haven't had that in a little bit maybe jesse marsch with the red bulls tried something new patrick vieira era brought in a little bit more of an intense passing style with what gregg berhalter was doing but it really feels like we've been at a at a stalled point for true intellectual innovation and capacity acidy in the league and what ellie down this year hasn't just been phenomenal with carlos villa dribbling people on the way they pass and the way they press and all those things they have taken the intellectual capacity specifically civically last night last night was really the threshold for me the new tipping point with the way they plan an approach to beat san jose and i always think really with anything in soccer you have to think pep guardiola really do and when pat builds a game plan he talks about how it's so specific and detailed. We get the ball to the right. Maybe we do three or four passes. Then we swing the ball back to the left. It's going to bring the defense over here here. Then we have these two zero two two players run into the middle then we play the ball back to the middle on one of these two guys is gonna score with the inside of his foot to the backpost. It's incredible what he does and for me l. a._s._c. or the first team to have a similar plan to say every single week we are going to follow a._b._c._d. F and g details to beat this team it helps they've got good players that it helps. They have principles of play on a foundation but the way this team goes thinking about and planning for the game is taking new steps and it's going to drive the league for it is and it's gonna drive the league forward from a social media perspective and just engagement metrics based on what carlos vela did like. I don't want to reduce it to that because it's not about that but that's kind of how you know in this day and age what's taken hold what resonates with people carlos villa scored the third goal in this game. I don't think i have to describe to anybody what this looked like like. <hes> like you've seen it no matter where you've been under a rock you've seen this i mean he dribbles everybody. I mean my biggest question is what is the grounds crew gonna do a bank of california stating ain't because there are like three or four six foot holes in the ground like he put people in the ground but he comes down to go fella blurring young worth no chance chance left to right foot and go see your and then lima lima slides into block it carl pases puts his foot on it wakes for nick lima to lunge at it and then flips it in the netting like it's just it was it was a moment that you'll never i'll never forget and it helps. The kaelin car was literally like jumping on top of me and run around screaming like a small charge year under selling it because all of that came after a pass it broke the lines in which two attackers carlos villa josh pressure. We're on the same page colors. Villa dummies continues his third man run gets it back the fact that you're just talking about carlos villa dribbling under sells it so far to the capacity of what was accomplished in this absolute it was incredible and i can think of no one better to talk to about it than max brito the t._v. voice valley of see you can see him on youtube t._v. He's also quote an overall cool dude it's a._t. And t. called the field the los angeles max. What's up doing all right man. Thanks for of reading what i told you to read l. My intro insure appreciate that yeah. That's the way we do it here. You give me the intro you give me the plot it's and then i just verbatim. Read them right back to you right. Exactly all good did did you send me anything on l. a._f._c. Because we have plenty applauded there. Bobby says he's inspired by this team. Max gimme your one word description if you can reduce it to that for what bob bradley probably carlos vela no a._f._c. You're doing this season one word <hes> eventual. I try to use that because i think every time we go the stadium or you watch elliot see we expect something memorable to happen and it really does and i think every time they have a game this point ford and this this is kinda goes against what we see and basically on a regular basis us on a tune in because a record might be broken something that might happen like mass last night with a goal we saw you. You have to watch the they are just that they're that team now max. I was sitting next to kaelin car when carlos villa scored that goal. We all know what goal i'm talking about. Cayman cart jumped up on the couch ran along the top of the couch. Not the part you sit on the part that you're back goes on jumped up and down screaming like a little girl. You were in the stadium and you did what when you saw carlito's do that well. We're going to the area on the fourth floor there at bank in california stadium and i'm pretty i have my emotions on my sleeve. I defy fits with a goal happens and our head of communications set for because you cannot deliberate in the press area. You're after writing that is rule number one and we have to be respectful of that because people from the earthquakes and what have you but then again when that happened i jumped out of my seats and not only did i did everyone who works for the club updated standing up like they saw something remarkable and that never happened there. That's the first time i've been there word collectively. Everybody reacted that way. It was it it was mind blowing we were we saw at the goal where he was going to south end so we're right above. It was pretty amazing now carlos vela this year. I kind of just did the quick math. He's got forty. One goals created or scored fifteen. M._l._s. teams have equal or have less than that. The vancouver whitecaps scored one more goal paul then one carlos vela the entire season watching him up close seeing him work on a daily basis talking to bob bradley about him. What is it how how can you describe this dominance. This level. I mean it just has never happened in this league before well he feels outlier and he's going to be able to break these records because aziz world-class player that should be starting for his national team but has decided to focus on this m._l._s. teams and he does it in such a way. He draws no attention to other than the way he plays which is mind blowing and get milk millions of hits on social media media and we're at a whatever digital content area. You can find other than that. He blends in with the teams and i think that's where he finds his. Most success. People like like the play with them. <hes> people like to watch him these. He's so easy. I don't wanna be cliche but he really is that kind of first guy there last guy out of training you players come and he puts his hand around looking at this guy's for real. It's the perfect player and you could draw a player perfect for specifically in m._l._s. clubs all in who speaks on behalf of the clubs or leagues his teammates. I don't wanna mention other names. Sometimes some some star player the baggage you expect it but there's no baggage with nine. I don't want to name names max. I wish you a little the more difficult with others max supposed to be difficult. It's supposed to be giftable guys. I found what you said about him being the first one to be really interesting because i've never played with carlos valley. I don't know him personally but that's not the thought i had in my head with them. I always out of an incredibly talented player. Who is maybe the opposite of that so. It's really interesting for you to say that he is such a hard worker and works on the craft on a daily basis yeah and bobby. I'll just i'll give you examples so brian drink as a new signing. He's been at practice carlos velez. They're easing using his transition with him talking to him and then the day that brian ruggerio breast stay where you taking photos some interviews. I'm looking at the parking a lot and it was like three or four cards because we with a long day for everyone to work for the club. You had a lot of stuff that we had a bump out. I looked at the park three or four parts left. One was mine and what was coming and he's a easily walked in there and leave. It's it's really true he. He loved being around the teen atmospherics his comfort zone but it's you don't it hard to believe a guy that says you don't even notice when he walks in or out just blended in everything that team does and that's just the way what eat when he has created he makes it look effortless and maybe that makes it seem like maybe he doesn't have to work for but clearly he does bob bradley to be messy. I think pretty clearly maxi was messy. Let's see last night but there was also just a little bit of something between these teams. I know l. A._f._c. has dominated this quote unquote rivalry. I'm not ready to push it into that box yet. But you see matteis yes omeday get thrown off you see some of the pre-game back and forth between he and bob and then you see the intensity on the field is this a rivalry is at the beginnings of a rivalry. Could it be rivalry i hope i hope it moves that direction. I think in the case of l. a._f._c. I mean you know the gala cancel kind of pushed back with the survivor. 'cause l._l._c. has not won a game and get it and i think that's there's. There's some fairness to that. I think the same with san jose. I mean they're going to have to get a chapter. Were they eighty well. Unfortunately they've been on the receiving them. One handed resolve l. a._f._c. Certainly this season the u._s. Open cup game better for them. They competitive in that game. It was not the case and he saw the meltdown from almeida. I want to get off topic but i we had these fought as well about <hes> leeann the samaritans who carlos valets message scored a goal like that it would be on a never ending loose and a lot of people come up and go oh m._l._s. defenders but no liam as he does that to the quote unquote elites spanish defenders though i think <hes> if he's going to get the plotted for doing something like that because he does all the time that was messy hole else where he just runs around people and make some stab at at air <hes> so i think that was i think that's something we have to give credit for and the league league and not distance it does something i'm not calling carlos messy but that was a messy goal that we see in la league all the time that he can now max. Let's look forward now. I'll trafco go coming up for his incredible as elliot have been they have yet to beat the l._a. Galaxy in their four meetings. Is there a sense around the team that they need to do something different or what's on their mind and moving into this game on sunday. They're gonna play the same way and they <hes> in bonn. Bradley's been pretty explicit about that thing we play. We won't along. We're not going to adjust to another team and some them extremely well all season but there's <hes> there's a wait around the clubs. Certainly you can feel it was a fan to say they're really. There'd be an emptiness if they don't win this game. If they're going to win top that's gonna feel. This is about my words these discussions have they feel. That's gonna you know that's gonna be something that they're gonna have to deal with not looking forward to it so this is really important regular season game the players and teams. They wanna win it. Of course they do and and even more so based on what is happening the past but this is just more than a game. There's no other way to look at it. I i we try to spend a little bit <hes> a galaxy of not one at bank in california stadium. There's only been one game ended up. Ties should have been in the game. I think that home field advantage they build. This is where it happens. It doesn't have to be four nil. Does that have to be five one. One zip would would defy but this is an important chapter for closure on such a credible season. You will see that game finish off heineken heineken rivalry week ten thirty p._m. Eastern on sunday f s one maximum so interested in what bob bradley is thinking and how he's working right now. What he's doing is absolutely incredible but i know how competitive competitive us and also he never seems to be satisfied l. a._f._c. l. a. galaxy. I have to believe this is a game that whether he'll show order not that he desperately wants to win. What are you what sort of getting from bob these days both ahead of the traffic oh but also just in general about what he's team is accomplishing. He's he's. He's never really satisfied that he. I think this moment he wants to be perfect game and even after the percent jose game last night we sat down and listened listen to address the media and he was like we're almost there. I mean there's too many moments for guys are not making their passes where they're not tracking back whatever it is he. He's still sees a few flaws whereas the team gets even better which blows your mind because you look at that and go. How can you really improve on that but he's he's is not satisfied until the season. He wants to win every game he will say this. You know these and he wants to like any wants to make a huge impression he when he wants to win analyst analyst stuff he wants to rid the supporter shield that he has said he wants to maybe take that next step and be that coach who leading m._l._s. team so glory and call contempt champions league. That's all on his plan but it's all part of a bigger plan this is this is not to win this year for elliot. See some of the new signings. This is a long term play and i think it's all part of the legacy he'll leave with his public has been just paint yourselves that we come to work and get to see this on a regular they get a basis is a charmed life. It's absolutely incredible. You can follow max on twitter or watch on the broadcast u._t. Youtube t._v. Excuse me act at max brito sports on twitter her before we let you go max you said m._l._s. cup fan saying hey even if we let's say we don't beat the galaxy and win and loss cup something missing. Do they have to win. Amores cup do ah a must win sort of thing with the season they're having with fellow at the form that he is with the rest of the league just looking up. I mean does it have to happen for them. I think <hes> for all of us in in m._l._s. circles. We know that that's not fair because the play offs and even more so this year because it's a new format that we've never seen one band performance and it's curtains. The red bulls will be the first to tell you all about that that it. It doesn't seem the place rarely. Do we have the best team win. M._l._s. tough over for the past few years or ever for that matter because of the playoff format we were talking with some of the guys and i'm not gonna put the pressure saying they have to win. M._l._s. cup with a great season what they can't do lose that first round game. That's gotta at least gets who western conference final. I think if they buy that first one <hes> that will avoid royd that will avoid because unfortunate conversations about this team and how they weren't able to finish that said <hes> they'll have to answer those questions anyway if they have the best record just like the rebels last season just like a little bit of a further back they have to finish the job in order to get complete the closure but i think in a realistic perspective if they win that first playoff game if they get the final four making stuffing lose i'd be very i'd be very hard for us to say the season was was a failure or sitting not finish <hes> the most ideal with all right. That's my express. Thank you so much. Everyone not everyone we share that concern concern that <hes> that outlook and i think that's a fair one based on the playoff format i think that's fair to i may not share that one but we fall in men traffic coming up on sunday episode one ten ten thirty p._m. Eastern max. I andrew bobby good chat with you. Max does the legend. I can still hear that that call from the old fox soccer days i could use you never doing okay. I won't let that one go sixty one points. The record is seventy seventy one l. a._f._c. have eight games left and if you don't think they're going to liberate this i'd like to talk to you and and maybe interrogates a little bit about what you're on because i don't think there's any doubt bobby. This team is going to make history. They are seven points ahead. Atlanta united were winning. The supporters shield race with eight games to go last year. They falter a little bit rebels or amazing l. a._f._c. Right now is seven in points ahead of the pace that last night it was on. They are twenty one goal differential goals ahead of the pace at atlanta united or online. That's crazy two point point three five points per game l. traffic. Oh come in on sunday as we said heineken rivalry week rolls on of course we had the atlantic cup real quick. I want your quick. Take on us wayne rooney read carter. No i would not have given a red card but it certainly grounds for reading. I don't think it was a bad call in the laws. I think it is a red. I would have given the red ed. I'm not sure you would see it live but definitely video review overall this game though d._c. At home losers again three wins and sixteen red bulls a big dub d._c. d._c. Fans are gonna ask questions about another. Call the p._k. Shop but ultimately no result for them knowing ruining probably at least the next game maybe more it's kinda spiral in away. You feel that i would say it's worse than spiraling room. I mean it's full on tumbling down a double black diamond hill right now. Should i don't know what they do to stop but i think bill ben olsen had a tough problem this year costa and they managed it fairly well. He has a dream move fall apart. I think that would break any of our hearts. It was fine for a little bit but i don't think any of us anticipated how hard that would be for this team to cope with but i don't know what they do at this point except a bucket on the hatchets which is what every m._l._s. team does when they struggle struggle right portland last year at you down the list of simplify it was they haven't fully done yet. They've done a little bit but dropped back into your four to survive grind out points in the ugliest way possible. I think that they'll still do it to make the playoffs andrew but it's it's tedious etzel touching go tedious tedious as well at times uh-huh ola kamara. That goal was not tedious. What a hit from him. We'll see if you can do more of that in the black and red of d._c. United heineken rivalry week again. I can't even say it. The hat like focus so hard thursday. We won't dig into the nicest rivalry and emma last but sporting kansas city are hosting minnesota. Daddy's coming home eichel par who for whatever reason likes to call himself daddy nine thirty p._m. Eastern on e._s._p._n. Thursday if you're listening to this on thursday makes you watch that game friday orlando atlanta on on e._s._p._n. Eight p._m. And then portland seattle also on e._s._p._n. At ten pm two games through there right now. Though you know we gotta talk to mike county. He had a couple of things to say about us. He's the voice of atlanta united on ninety nine the game in atlanta the radio play by play mike what's up. You're on with two idiots on extratime. I feel so awful about that. Guys i i really do. I wanna apologize again. Just because bobby's incorrect does not make him an idiot so i i really really sorry about that and thank you for having me on. I appreciate that because i actually watched that segment and i thought bobby you're an idiot. No atlanta united are the second best team in the league right now. We're going to get to that andrew okay. We're gonna get to that. Mike my first thought for you and this is what i've been meaning to ask. You is for me. One of the things that really separates atlanta united from the rest the league is your presence on sports talk radio and the influence you have in that market. How did that come about. How did you guys become a sports talk radio not down there well. I hope i don't have a lot of influence in this market if the if we did i think some of our fans would probably go running away but <hes> no. I you know we we have something very special down here in atlanta where m._l._s. is included in the conversation with the national football league the n._b._a. Major league baseball it is seen as one of the <hes> five major stick and ball <hes> professional sports leagues at least down here and it's been that wait since the very beginning even before we as a radio station <hes> really started covering it to the extent that we do now so i don't want to you know create the idea that our radio station had anything to do with getting it to that level but it got to the point where it was impossible for us as a radio station to ignore <hes> how people feel about atlanta united in this community in this market the attendance numbers do not lie <hes> the t._v. Ratings the radio ratings they do not lie and what's really cool for me to see is when you go around town <hes> and you walk into a sports bar or even in the grocery three store <hes> you know when you're getting ready to check out your overhearing people talking about soccer in the same way they're talking about. Julio jones's contract or curvy smart. Gonna win a national championship down here this year so as a radio station. We couldn't ignore it. We have to talk about it or else. We wouldn't be doing our jobs as as the radio station the sports radio station of record in this town in covering all of the major teams now it helps that we have the play by play rights obviously and and it's an important part of of our programming and content on this radio station but i think even if we didn't we would be doing our listeners a disservice if we didn't talk about them to the extent that we do is beautiful man and we want every single market to have this to have the chatter after the game and our reaction people caring tuning in maybe even calling in. I was bummed. I couldn't call in your show. I was going to have some fun. No no more pity martinez fables for you though look who's the biggest celebrity on this team in town is it joseph martinez and where does he rank kind of in the echelon of the julio jones's in the world in atlanta. It absolutely is joseph. <hes> some of our supporters are leading a campaign. I don't think it's gotten to go fund me levels yet but a lot of art supporters want a statue erected joseph <hes> preferably him kind of looking back joe bendik when he scored is record senegal last year in orlando <hes> but we can get uh-huh so petty. It is joseph <hes>. There's no doubt about it but again. Atlanta is unique where if miles route anson's walking down the street. He's he's gonna notice <hes> julia greville someone who's who's been incredibly accessible to fans down here because he lives in midtown walks his dog and <hes> goes to the dog park mark which is the the big dog park in downtown atlanta and he's very very accessible to fans. He's noticed everyone is noticed. Everyone is recognized here <hes> but for joseph you know we start to have these conversations here on the radio station about it. This is sports radio cliche but the mount rushmore of superstars superstars in atlanta and and joseph as on the mount rushmore probably right now trae young and julio jones and maybe ronald kunia because joseph has a certain degree of swagger that i think american football fans baseball fans and basketball fans can't relate to joseph is very very confidently backs up that confidence obviously scoring ton of goals and for a lot of people who are relatively new to soccer down here in atlanta and in the southeast the east <hes> sometimes starpower as measured by goalscoring ability. You could make the argument that darlington nagy is just as vital to atlanta united joseph martinez right right now but darlington is only scored one goal on the air and i think a lot of casuals kind of evaluate your your level of productivity on its team by the amount of goals scored so that's that's why joseph is in that conversation but yet joseph is a mega star down here a megastar anytime he has an autograph signing event <hes> anytime. He's just doing something out in public. I it draws. A huge huge crowd all right. We know what the game is this weekend heineken rivalry week orlando hosting on e._s._p._n. On friday eight pm eastern. It's the first i game that night. I cannot wait for sorry my bad orlando. I have to do it every single time because that pettiness from joseph was absolutely incredible. How do atlanta <music> supporters see orlando the club the supporters the little brother probably i would guess at this point yeah. I think among supporters probably i. I don't think among the players i it's like that. I mean there is a lot of animosity between these teams. There's a lot of animosity <hes> between <hes> you know both both team supporters and fans and that's okay that that's what a rivalry is as long as it remains good natured and it doesn't get entirely out of hand. I really think they'll andrew and bobby that i mean look i totally respect the rivalry that exists with <hes> atlanta and orlando <hes> there is animosity that i talked about the back that orlando has never beaten atlanta in my opinion has no bearing on whether this rivalry or not. I think some atlanta united fans would argue. It's not a rivalry because orlando has never been atlanta united. I don't believe that there's a certain intangible feel that comes with playing orlando but i would also say this. Atlanta united has a really robust rivalry with new york red bulls and i think one of the quiet sneaky underrated rivalries in this league that doesn't get a lot of publicity is atlanta united in new york city <hes> <hes> you know two teams that always play pretty epic matches against each other really high quality matches now you have the history of the playoff meeting on top of it but with new york city. I think it's a little more of a respectful rivalry where we're players on. Both teams really kind of complimented each other. They know that new york city strings in atlanta united strings compliment so well and and it's a little more of a good natured respectful rivalry but as far as quality of matches produced that to me like if we're orlando is going to be one eight and maybe new york city and rebels tied as being one b and four orlando i think on their side of things then you'd probably have to ask them because they would know better. I think there are one hundred percent all in on atlanta being their only rival were as up here in atlanta. Maybe our attention it is a little more divided of course have to make the playoffs to get in one of those situations. You know that those generally add some fuel to the fire. I got a couple more for you but i want this one quick miami miami nashville. They're coming. Could they rival orlando as rivals for atlanta united. What will they be. <hes> you know ashville interesting. I think there's a lot of camaraderie camaraderie between the the developing supporters beads in nashville and what we have here in atlanta. I think that will be a good natured rivalry. A lot of fans are very much looking forward to having a drivable. M._l._s. road match that they can attend. We don't have that here in atlanta. Miami's interesting you have paul mcdonagh down there who helped to build atlanta united. I think there's a thought up here that when miami comes in though the orlando's chief rival and when nashville comes in they'll kind of atlanta's of course charlotte were to get in then then then all bets are off. We're really looking forward to seeing natural in the league. I can tell you that so i have two more for you and the first one centers around frank de boer who has had all manners of headlines this year and has kind of been maligned at times even seemingly by his own players as recently as the all star break and everything seems hunky dory. I'm on the field field in portland and joseph scoring goals in everybody's celebrating with the staff and i'm like i thought there was a thought it was a little off here. People weren't that happy and you're ahead. People in my twitter mentioned saying there is never panic mode and atlanta. I wonder if it was three weeks ago when you had three players say. They didn't like playing for this coach his style. Did things change that quickly. Wha- ah we just misread it from afar mike what's going on well. It's tough. I mean you have some players who are very very emotional and sets and things yeah. I mean obviously what leandra said. If the all star break to me that was the most confusing all because that was after atlanta united had moved into the three five two. They were playing style that that that what very very similar to what they were playing last year undercut martino so the timing of those remarks <hes> was very very odd. I think as is the case with anything guys when you start winning. When you start getting on a roll <hes> you know those little doubts in the back of your head kind of just fade away and this is a very tight knit dressing room. Everyone wchs each other. <hes> frank had to go to the three five two because of brexit as injury in seattle quite frankly but the results speak for themselves. They won six out of seven since going to the three five two when you win. You don't hear the complaints anymore but i don't really think it was as big a deal as it was being made out to be in the first place they they they had a really rough start to the year. I think playing in the caf champions league was burdens. <hes> since april twentieth they're eighteen six in one across all competitions. That's really really good and outside of a five one loss to chicago. There were a couple of losses in there where they were literally on the last kick at the game so since april twentieth it's been rolling pretty well and you have not heard as much of the <hes> the concern that confusion uson out of that dressing room i think since april twentieth that which is why everything happened over the all-star break was so puzzling to me all right last one here. We know bobby what he thinks about who the second best team in the league is but i we all know who the number one team in the league. That's elliot see that's pretty darn. Clear mike so give us the pitch if it comes. M._l._s. cup if it's atlanta anna l. a._f._c. Why does atlanta win that game well. I don't know if atlanta wednesday at game but if they were to win that game i wanna go back to july twenty six when atlanta united not at plated l. a._f._c. where aside from a twelve minutes stretch at the end of the first half atlanta united was counterpunching pretty well against l. a._f._c. I think atlantic i if if they're going to be fortunate enough to make the last cup final and beat l. a._f._c. It would be because of their depth l. a._f._c. I mean the first eleven is so so good. I wonder through the grind of postseason if they were to have an ill timed injuries somewhere <hes> if god forbid vail aware where to get hurt. How would they deal with that. I i think atlanta united from a depth standpoint might be a little bit better equipped but what l. a._f._c. has done this year and it continued <hes> against the jose. It's just remarkable so much respect to them and i hope we get another crack at them because to be totally honest with you. I thought atlanta united played really really well out there in l. a. On july twenty any sex we shall see my county sports radio nine to nine the game in atlanta. He's the radio play-by-play voice of atlanta united mike. Thanks for sharing your time with a couple of years. Okay ah you're not in it guys. Thanks mike we're big. Fans all jokes aside big. Thanks to mike for joining the show for being a good sport. Nobody took anything personally here folks. I don't get riled up on twitter. We don't even have time to discuss all these games friday night. Orlando atlanta portland seattle e._s._p._n. Saturday n._y._c. red bull's those new england chicago that used to be rivalry back in the day when they met in the playoffs philly d c. It's trying to be a rivalry canadian classic toronto f._c. In montreal i'm going to hone in right there because we talked about it at the top the news that shocked everybody. I mean mind blown. Remi garde being like oh did not surprise me. Their last is three results had not been good six three loss to colorado and then they lost the chicago those teams not in the playoffs you might realize and then they draw at home the dallas in a wild on crazy game and the players don't look happy and remi garde has been calling out his players basically since day one a much. I was just kind of what they soured yeah but wilmer cabrera. He just got l. Let go by the dynamo for not having the results so when you need to have your season i'm going to go ahead and say turn around because they've steadily fallen down the eastern conference table. The seven thirty four points orlando city thirty four toronto have thirty four chicago fire have thirty three. This is a little bit of a head scratcher. We'll talk to patrice perignon. Just a second who by by the way is now an assistant on the staff. What do you make of this bob well. The first thing i wanna point out is that romney guard over thirty eight game stretch from twenty thousand in two thousand nineteen put up almost one point seven even points per game which over thirty four game regular season put you in the top five and major league soccer so it's interesting that clearly someone who could get the job done and has lost the rains recently. They've lost six of their last game. So incomes walmart cabrera woman cabrera's last thirteen or fourteen games to eleven and one. That's fourteen games two wins. Eleven losses also one draw in that stretch. So why do you bring somebody in with that. There's only two reasons. I come to my mind. One is that you want someone who knows the league. You don't wanna hire an interim assistant assistant like colorado and cincinnati and there's one of the clubs that have done that this year houston right. You don't wanna hire an interim who doesn't have experience you also don't want to go out of the league league and bring someone in who might take time to acclimate. You need someone who knows the league who knows how to be a professional manager right now. The second part of that is you also may or may not have a series of single limitation games coming up and you have to win every single one to make the playoffs and wilmer cabrera has done that the two thousand seventeen playoffs. He takes the houston dynamo to the western conference final 2018 eighteen. He takes the houston dynamo to win the open cup so he knows how to navigate these individual games at a time now is there risk with hiring someone who has gone to eleven in one in his last fourteen games absolutely but i can also see a little bit of light into the explanation for why we're waiting to see some of the explanation from montreal i think the press conference is on this thursday but recording it pretty early in the day the president and ceo kevin gilmore basically says that it was a difficult decision but it was the latest series of failures in the past couple among the results and the way the team acts on the field that led to the change as far as wilmer cabrera goes. I don't no disrespect to wilmer. The results. Just didn't go his way in houston houston. I don't think he's necessarily a bad coach. I don't think he was a slam dunk. You announced this and your fans get jacked up about this higher but maybe it makes sense in this sort of in perspective agnosio is most likely in his final run with the mantra impact. Your news come in aucoin. Quo lassie lapa line you so you have talent so you just need somebody to get the best out of that talent over two or three months and that may not mean that you come in and do some crazy tactical thing. You're not gonna come in and bob bradley this team right. You just need somebody who can motivate them. Who gives him a fresh. Look who who just gets them kind of out of the funk they've been in and united behind a common goal which is somehow somehow some way making the playoffs not wasting the final year of piazzi and pushing on from there <hes> whether it's a long-term move. I don't know they'll have to explain that to us but you're right. Wilmer has shown that he can be a motivator in these times has shown that he can win those games now he flips conferences and gets an immediate opportunity to redeem himself and remember verma jordan was up in montreal before so maybe some good words passed back and forth for now though let's talk to somebody who's on the ground that's patrice bayern yea a legend and now an assistant coach coach with the montreal impact is not call to the field patrice. How's it going. I'm good. I'm good. He'll absorbing the last hours but <hes> i'm not home omar micro up. Get a chance to help more with yeah. We're watching or excuse me kind of falling. Wilmer cabrera is opening press conference right now. You're you're an assistant coach. He said it's been hectic. It's been a little bit surprising. Tell me about your last. Oh twenty four hours or so yeah. It's it's like you said it's quite hectic. There's nothing i was surprised. I just came back from cost rica with the under thirteen complicated champions league on monday. Miss yesterday was my first day back at the academies <hes> the facility and <hes> the president's <hes> approach me and <hes> had announced to me that he wasn't going to be in the functions his anymore and that's the the opportunity to to see if i could be with the they wanted me to in staff to help out in terms of the i guess gets the next couple of weeks his transition since i've been to the club i've been in the league and some players and so yeah got caught off guard this all in the span of an our because that was seen gremio beasley an hour before and then that was the things we're gonna chain. That's now <hes> <hes> an opportunity was is there to be with the staff and end up the club wanted. President wanted me to be around two seconds a coach with america era wilmer homers in your on the staff. I wanna rewind a little bit though and put on your analyst hat for me remi garde. Why was it now that he had to leave. Why did the club. Do you think makes this change <hes>. I think they felt that the last few weeks this is the team was maybe not getting the results that you're expected or hoping and <hes> especially going to this final stretch he felt that the we needed to move make a move like move to to <hes> to stir something so that they're they're the objectives of the season which making the playoffs and also i guess the final the kanye championship that the team needed to boost never a good day because of course somebody has to leave or somebody is not just somebody before from the past who are highly respected has done a very good job. I think the club is very <hes> appreciative of what they've left. In terms of the culture at the club professionalism they have left a good footprint that now all <hes> the new coach has to bring to the forefront and and the reenergize group to go and get the victory reason performances and make the playoffs and start to in the. Let's talk about that game because you guys come into a huge moment. Your first game in charge is a canadian classic. So what are the things. You're focusing on on to turn it around for that big event. <hes> when was this came in and you know he thinks he's watching a few other games and you know was not too long ago of another team at the leaks or you're a little bit of the impacts will. He wants to approach it <hes>. I'm not going to give all the details but he he wants to bring in a certain approach <hes> knowing that they're playing toronto and owner straightens skill set but also wants to know maybe attack certain things at the club team wasn't good at that's not quieter visas. This is one of them but also maybe wasn't seem to be <hes>. I guess maybe higher up and <hes> maybe more on the fourth in forefront in terms of you know going there and being considered dominant but going forward and i think as a as a coach is seems i've always been not least vertical and dynamic going go <hes> so i think that's gonna bring but it's c._f._c.'s the rivalry game. Two teams are at the same kind of situation a bit not exactly in terms they didn't change coast but nor the standings <hes> doing okay and <hes> we're not doing as well <hes> and this is a time 'cause we're going to beat them in m._l._s. l._s. and also became championship for the final. Let's see it's <hes> is <hes> the first baptism you know you're jumping into the rivalry and <hes> and it's to try to come in and show the that you know the team can you're energized boost and come in and have a performance against toronto because we're fighting for literally the last few spots for or it's gonna be interesting but i think first of all these wants to rear directed to the players and tell them that you know they're yeah the players the the they're the ones really can make the change you then dole <hes> he no he was in houston. He's not much wrong. Ramirez no longer here <hes> he's gonna bring you. <music> new compensation new speech with the players have to be the ones who take this and the and the and taking on their own and that he can only push them and guide them <hes> <hes> staff to get this results in a group performance on saturday so having been through this. Is there a little bit of is there nagy that you're giving the players for their emotional their mental preparation for what's going to be a grind working for that last playoff spot yeah you know more. Oh you guys know last you know. You have to be in the right frame of mind. You have to have the results you have to you know what every game is like yeah <hes> you're in the playoffs almost already setting yourself up for the play offs every game. He's all i'm jumping across above another team. You have more belief in yourself and the team has had success. You know maybe gone but he didn't do things that the team was known for being solid defensively elite compact so seem unity was there you could see so now assume re recaptured and to realize is that are coming up or small little final and and you're against iraq rival for some of these games so you've got to go out with the mindset that hey if i beat them. I'm taking three points on them. I'm thinking victory and i'm also sending a so and saying hey we're coming so there's still a seven games of melissa played for. Can you championships which is a final so the team is seven and has the tools now was just to recalibrate. I would say the mindset and and realize that you you know what yeah maybe <hes> you know. We're in the but okay this new speech coach. He just created the clinic russ in terms of really really we have to change our mindset and realize that as a team we can as it seem another club. We can go and get these results and <hes> and and move forward but it's one game at a time snap. Wrap your fingers. Everything has changed in mantra. Women cabrera's now in coverage unless dot com toronto f._c. Montreal canadian classic saturday nights seven thirty p._m. Eastern on t._v. sports u._p._n.

We've kind of broken it down on this show their team number twenty eight. It is official official. M._l._s. for the lou got it done. I'm really excited for this as a kansan as someone who went to st louis on vacation a ton in my childhood and knows about that rivalry are- between the two cities kansas city and saint louis on the line now to help explain. This is phil grooms. He's a co host of the u._s. L. show that covered the u._s. L. team in saint louis. He's a native there and he's so excited for this team phil. How's it going. Thanks for having me on no congratulations for one. How how long have you been waiting for m._l._s. in saint louis. Oh a long time honestly you ever since it became a national team fan like die hard one. I should say steph enough a little a bit <hes>. I've been dying to have saint louis team and <hes> you know we got that with the u._s._o. And and this is just another step up. You know another level <hes> <hes> but you know we've been waiting for m._l._s. and attempting molest for a long time now so you're the host the u._s._o. Show a co host sorry. We don't want to create a little bit of beef with the crew there so tell me about yourself a little bit so people understand where you're coming from on this. You're you're born and raised saint louis soccer fan for life. Walk me through it. No you know what so you might not like this but i'm a little bit of a hack. I've i've gotten into soccer a long time ago. As far as the national teams i honestly got really into st louis f c once they join us l. and i kind of started my st louis podcast <hes> in their second season and you know i'm a little bit of a late comer. I didn't play soccer at all my life but i've been obsessed for a several years now and i think i've raised my knowledge level up to the degree where hopefully i don't say anything down today. That's awesome. We'd love to hear that what was the moment. When you got hooked surro- player a game <hes> no it was it was just the fact that we had pro soccer and saint louis and that you know the levels level <hes> i went to most of the games the first year they came and it was just the level was higher and the access of the players is incredible to just walk up to bryan gaul used to play for galaxy and just asked him about the game and i got to hear exactly what he saw it and it was really cool. This is that that was probably the moment. I got hooked where i drank a little bit too much. Got brave talk to brian galls out how bad the game they man. Those are the moments that you remember obviously didn't drink too much clearly look. Let's just talk about the big news which is at molasses is coming. Walk me through the event the hoopla how people in st louis talking in thinking about this yeah it's people are coming out from the woodwork but but to be honest with you. It's been a really nice a nice mix of cons of fans there and a lot of new fans a lot of people that are kind of waiting for me to really come out out and support a saint louis team which has been nice to see honestly it's one of the benefits of m._l._s. is it's not just the the really dedicated fans really crazy easy fans like the u._s. L. draws. It's you know we need those average. Average folks to come out to you know ten twelve games years <hes> in the tens of thousands and so i think saint louis is gonna deliver in that way <hes> but you know the the event with fine the celebration after was much better. It was just saw shirts from every molest team every a lot of green and blue from the u._s. Lt then everybody came together and celebrate it and it was a lot of fun so we know about the history of soccer in saint louis the you know the leagues of the passed in all the famous players whether they'd be bosnian or american or whatever in the college ranks lou scott gallagher etc etc etc walk me through as a local your the perception of your soccer culture. What is it right now. What can it be. What will it be. Our soccer culture is always been <hes> you know at first it was very immigrant but always workman like i i live in a neighborhood called dog town and that's named after the hard working men who worked in the klay minds the doggies <hes> and the hill is right next door and you guys know that in the fifties the u._s. national t._v. <hes> england and five or six of those guys were from that neighborhood called the hill neighborhood and <hes> it starts there you know and and you know i i said that we had a bad game that i talked to bryan gaul about if <hes> in the first year and and we've been trying to discover i our identity in st louis as far as how much you spend and what kind of team we have in with aunt foolish <hes> it. It's become a very workman-like eighteen. No and they work together. The the the sun is greater than the whole and so <hes> better than the individual so we've found that and i think we're really happy with what we found in your cell and that may change with the lowest team but <hes> you know. I'm excited to see if the groundwork laid moved on to the next level. We'll see what happens happens when you hit m._l._s. in the meantime there's construction to be done. There is both physical and sort of in the ephemeral sense building team. The stadium is downtown. The stadium idiom is in a great spot based on everything. I know about st lois in my visits there in the pasco royals what's going to be as far as an event the the stadium the location everything around it. How does it change what is going on currently in u._s._o. An elevated a little bit. This is a game changer. I'm so glad you brought up because honestly this is. The best story is on clark street and on clark seep threes. They're gonna start calling it. Get ready for it. They're going to start calling it. The greatest sport street in the in the country hud you have at the very where is bush stadium where the cardinals split right down the way enterprise centre enterprise might sound familiar that is where the blues play and we've heard a lot about the blues lately right down the street from that is union station and where the m._l._s. <hes> stadium will be and so it's it's just it is totally possible so there'd be baseball cardinals game <hes> blues hockey game and the saint louis m._l._s. game going at the same time on the same day with it's like a hundred thousand people if we sell out all the stadiums and knowing saint louis happen. It could very well happen. You feel like there's a hunger here for soccer. We kind of look at i was was just in portland and you know they have an n._b._a. Team but they don't have the n._f._l. And the timbers have this elevated position within the local sports market we talked earlier in the show to mike content atlanta <hes> and despite the fact that they have all the sports. There's an elevated position for atlanta united. Do you think that this saint louis. M._l._s. team is going to be from the jump sort of on a level what those things i know they're insane about the cardinals there. But where do you think it'll fall in the echelon locally. I don't think it'll be hard at all. You got to see how terrible loses in for so oh long and their attendance has never dropped in to a degree where you'd be a little worried about. Maybe a columbus sort of thing happening. It's always been the sport there and i think all you have to do is look at the national team games in saint louis in a baseball stadium. It's at the st. Vincent grenadines game <hes> world cup qualifier a fire several years ago and it was over forty thousand ascendant. You look at the women's national team game selling out at busch stadium in the recent past saint louis is so frigging hungary for a high hi level of soccer and i really think putting the stadium downtown <hes> we're gonna we're gonna start seeing the rewards of that and <hes> you know this. This stadium can be expanded bigger and ice. I seriously hope that we show that we can support an even bigger stadium and we had in the near future and we have to ask this in the heineken week of rivals. Who do you think will be the rival rival when saint louis comes into the league casey if <hes> you know the u._s. Sell rivalries have anything to say about it. We've we really get up for the swope park rangers games and really really want to beat them every size so far that's it i could see chicago sneaking in there too for real one of the interesting parts in your back to ownership when you talk about stadiums and what this team will be on a spinning platform the first female majority ownership group of major league soccer. It's so cool to see those photos. That part is awesome but it's also so awesome that they've seemed like people that are ingrained in the community when you're looking at it as a supporter as someone who covers the team who will cover the m._l._s. team. What do you make this ownership group and what they'll mean to what this team eventually becomes <hes> c k b caroline kindle. That is a wonderful owner and you you're right. There are so entrenched french in supporting saint louis. You know the date we are. It's just became a national park because of all the money they put into revamping it <hes> they're into the arts. They're into the sports. They're into into <hes> helping <hes> organizations all over the city in different ways. They're an amazing group and my favorite thing about them. Being <hes> the you know majority majority women lead in own. Is that happen. Naturally you know like it's not like everyone was like okay. Hey we're going to try to put all these women in a room and make them the m._l._s. owners know they were already in powerful positions in the city and they're good at their jobs and it just naturally became that and that's kind of my favorite part of that of that aspect you can listen pilgrims on the u._s. L. show phil grooms to els as you see on the screen here. If you're watching on youtube is the twitter profile. We're going to jump into the mailbox. Phil and i'm just going to keep you here for this first question because i think you can probably answer this better than we ever could. This is an anonymous tweet or excuse me texts we got to the heartache hotline says with louis coming to have less. Let's make some way. I too early head coach predictions. This anonymous individual says brad davis. What do you think who might be some candidates phil brad. Davis is running the saint louis s._c. Let's see part of the academy in kansas city so that's an interesting shout <hes> i. I liked what has listen. I wouldn't mind seeing him. Get a chance but you we've been talking about like probably twelve different saint louis in that have coaching experience that could could slip in here. Mike sorber was was a shoutout but <hes> you know i. I don't know there's too many. I'd be happy with getting shots but <hes> i'm gonna let g._m. Decide all right team number twenty eight saint louis super excited for it as a kansas guy and kansas city i i. I'm here for this rivalry. It's going to be great right. Leave the greatest supporters in the world stuff at home now all right phil. Just leave that a high. Let the cardinals have that all right. Thank you so much for joining us. Thanks guys appreciate it all right. Thanks to fill he's going to be a jacked for the next couple of years and even more so in that stadium gets built and saint saint louis hits the field you can follow the coverage of the newest expansion team unless at m._l._s. soccer dot com dot com. If you're adrian heath all right. Let's get to the four one two zero six zero. M._l._s. extra-time m._l._s. sokhom kerris louder know him well does a lot of video work for unless he had a very interesting question for mattdoyle but matt's not here so we get to answer it. You get to score one. M._l._s. goal and you're forced to retire. Do you want to score a bender a banger from thirty yards out or like vella bobby. What do you want to do. You have one goal you. Have you have a gold. You stick with you enter. I have my goal. I'll i'm gonna stick with my goal in kansas city. Why don't you answer this. Wow wow i think i want vela. I like the thirty yarder and there's nothing like as amateur like hitting a ball sweetly. I know that you pros do it all the time and it feels old hat to just like put your laces through something and see exactly where you want it to go but there's just something about leaving players in the dust and sort of embarrassing them mm-hmm that just gets me going i. This was one of those goals that i will remember where i was what was happening. How kaelin reacted how everyone in the office office reacted it was it was like slot on against l. a._f._c. In that first i'll traffic oh. It was absolutely that special end up. We're gonna end here from toronto duck. He says tactically which team in the east has the best chance of beating a._f._c. in m._l._s. cup final. He's making some assumptions there. <hes> is there a team and then after that i want your opinion on whether they have to win them less cup. This sure to be considered a success. I'd say the answer needs to be atlanta united if they do it. They didn't twenty eighteen right when they went to those five in the back there a defensive direct team team. I hate to say but one of the truths to soccer. Is that usually if you play defensive play directing you counterattack you have the upper hand on a team that passes impresses because the margins are so much much smaller so i would say atlanta they play a certain way but you also have to look at the twenty five minutes when the red bull outplayed and created more chances against l. a._f._c. But i think the number one answer is atlanta united. There's a talent level there too with joseph and pity embargo those guys keep rising plus gristle plus mir plus darlington etc etc on down the line miles house robinson l. g._p. Gazon you get the you get the drift here. I'm going to say max broncos didn't <hes> i'm going to say that l. A._f._c. need to win m._l._s. cup to truly realize their place in league history. I understand that they're going to probably set the record for points. They're going to run away with the supporters shield of already said that they own that but i think in this league given their ambitions they need to win. M._l._s. cup to be everything that they can be could be an are showing themselves to editor at the the conversation about players and teams needing trophies to me is so amateur man like the idea in playoffs when a single game in major league soccer a few you games can decide your legacy. This conversation about lebron james versus other players in history to me is so dumb. You don't need to trophy if you over thirty. Four games are the best and and what this team has done. We've gone over the records every single week over thirty four game stretch. They have been so so so good so what a trophy help yes but the idea that you need to win a trophy in single elimination games especially in those random sport of all the sports to me just oversimplifies. It doesn't actually give fair assessment <unk>. I'm willing to say that i'm oversimplifying but what i'm saying is that if l. a._f._c. don't do it. They'll be remembered as the historic team that didn't do it. The history will be remembered in everybody. Buddy will praise them and look bob bradley and and john darlington and carlos vela and everything that they're doing is driving the league forward but there will be an astros. It's just the way it works and i it could be amateurs. It could be stupid. I could be as mike conte center earlier leaning into a sports talk cliche but there will always be that element of oh but they didn't. It's very you can have an asterix but they should still be remembered as the best m._l._s. team of all time. The numbers are putting up the way they're going about it. It is possible for them not to win. I'm west. Let's company single elimination playoff a random sport and still be the best team ever and m._l._s. That sound you hear is thrown off. See fans disagreeing with you that that sound you hear is l._a. Galaxy fans probably following of fans from back in the early days being like what are you talking about. If we didn't win those championships nobody would have talked about us in the same way. It's all fair clinton. Make soccer such a great sport as we can have the conversation that l. a._f._c. have been so good over thirty four games but would they be toronto in a single game. Would they be the twenty nine thousand galaxy the two thousand eighteen atlanta united single game and how do you factor in a single game into the conversation but i'm a full season kind of guy and over that full stretch. They've i've been the best team and i feel that. I feel that you're also pep guy yeah yes. What do you think what do you think he thinks about man city season last year credible in the league didn't win what they ultimately we set out to win. Which was the champions like he would call it a success you would. Wouldn't you say there was something missing. Just one just one thing yeah. There's something missing. The question is there can be something missing and you can still be the greatest team. I will give them that right now on the field what they're doing. It's absolutely incredible. Congratulations l. a._f._c. cannot wait for traffic. Oh we barely early even hype that game up ten thirty p._m. Eastern on f s one on sunday that is part of a three-game tripleheader on f s one to finish off heineken rivalry week check out the nicest rivalry well rian m._l._s. tonight.
