The transfer window exploded on Monday and the guys break it all down. Andrew is on the injured reserve list, so David and Matt carry the load. What were their takeaways from U.S. Soccer’s rainy victory vs. Iceland? It starts with the new and improved Jozy Altidore, but there is plenty more to unpack. Plus, what to make of the Krisztian Nemeth transfer, an ever-evolving LA Galaxy squad that now reportedly features Nigel De Jong, and two new Designated Player signings in their prime.
Of course, the guys wouldn’t pass up the chance to chat with Red Bulls sporting director Ali Curtis, who discusses Matt Miazga’s move to Chelsea and the big picture as it pertains to MLS. How will the Miazga transfer money be used? How is TAM affecting the league? Plus, how might the sale of young prospects affect the talent pool as a whole?
In the mailbag, the guys assemble MLS 4-v-4 squads, name Dom Leroux's (or Sydney Dwyer's) future World Cup winner, and shine a spotlight on US and Borussia Dortmund phenom Christian Pulisic.
