Plus, a suspended Matias Almeyda sneaks around the stadium, Andre Shinyashiki goes hypebeast Guy Fawkes with the dye job and USMNT glass half full/empty with SB Nation’s Kim McCauley.

Also in the episode … Who is the MLS Rookie of the Year leader? Which non-playoff team is best equipped for 2020? Are the playoffs slipping away from Zlatan and the Galaxy … again? Is Orlando City’s future bright after improved 2019? Do the Union have anything to prove against LAFC? Is MLS sending its best to Concacaf Champions League? How many players would you take from 2014 USMNT on 2019 version?
