MLS Grabs Your Attention
Midweek MLS action didn't disappoint, and the guys run down all four games (except Chicago and Vancouver's scoreless draw ... Zzzzzzzz). The biggest topic of discussion? Red Bulls' defender Jamison Olave's intimate grab on fellow Colombian Olmes Garcia. What would you do? David's been through it before, and now we want your stories. Then D.C. United midfielder Davy Arnaud joins the show to talk the EJ-Ching beef, grey hairs and his second-place club.
It's that time of year, the Designated Player rumors are falling from the sky. Montreal locked one up. So did San Jose. Meanwhile, Sacha Kljestan and Jermaine Jones appear to be in the pipeline. Which one really gets the guys going? The last-place Impact hope it's Ignacio Piatti, and Goal.com's Nick Sabetti explains why the lay of the land in Montreal has changed so drastically in recent days.
Finally, your mail! A new idea for the Chipotle Homegrown game, we'll take it. Who cares about college soccer? Andrew and Dave, for two. Plus, allocation rules explained. Don't miss the second-ever book club on Friday morning!
