In this episode, Andrew Wiebe, David Gass, Matt Doyle and Charlie Davies go deep on Major League Soccer’s Week 10. First up, as always, the winners from the weekend: Ezequiel Barco, Jim Curtin and the Union, Dab God aka Derrick Etienne Jr. and New York City FC. As for losers, FC Cincinnati’s tailspin continues – now with hard-truth quotes from Fanendo Adi – and referee Ted Unkel is under the microscope again as Columbus feels jobbed by a controversial call.
Also in this episode, analyzing the Francisco Calvo trade to the Chicago Fire, Diego Valeri joins the 70-70 club and the Timbers make a massive move! Brian Fernandez is headed to the Rose City in a record transfer from Liga MX’s Necaxa. Where will he play? How will he change the Timbers? Last but not least, some extremely MLS-y trades as the transfer deadline looms.
In the mailbag … Charlie picks his all-time 5v5 teammate, the guys identity surprise MLS stars of 2019 and the Houston Dynamo’s fast start is fun (but may not be sustainable).
