The sky is falling! Or maybe not. It all depends on your perspective. ESPN's Taylor Twellman joins the gang to break down the malaise surrounding the US national team after a 2-0 World Cup qualifying loss in Guatemala. Are players being played out of position? How different is Jurgen Klinsmann's reign than Bob Bradley and Bruce Arena in actuality? What’s Klinsmann's role as Technical Director? Taylor digs in on all those topics and more. Plus, reaction to Canada's big match against Mexico in Vancouver.

 
In the second segment, there is good news for US fans after the U-23 squad earned a 1-1 draw down in Colombia in their Olympic playoff. How did they get it done? Brian Sciaretta explains then gives a scouting report on rising star Christian Pulisic (Borussia Dortmund). 
 
In the mailbag, Arielle Castillo joins to give the lowdown on the stadium plots Miami Beckham United purchased last week. The guys close it out by celebrating the legend of Jimmy Nielsen, which still burns strong because of some hilarious on-field antics back in 2013.
