MLS slows down – but doesn’t shut down – as the international break arrives in full force. The United States’ double dip with Guatemala could help seal a spot in the Hex, and forward Bobby Wood joins the guys to talk about his career resurgence with Union Berlin, those pesky transfer rumors and his advice for young players looking to make the European jump. Plus, can Canada pull an upset against Mexico at home? Will the US U-23s do the business in Colombia with a place in the Olympics on the line?
While MLS takes a breath, USL is getting ready to get after it. Opening day is Friday, and Oklahoma City Energy FC head coach (and Sporting KC legend) Jimmy Nielsen gives the lowdown on the league and his new status as a Midwesterner.
In the mailbag, Calen Carr joins to give a player’s perspective on the unwritten rules of the game, a father and his daughters are welcomed into the Galaxy family and RapidMan gets the fan fiction treatment.
