Paxton Pomykal: Next big thing in U.S. Soccer? Plus ... All-Star snubs, Gold Cup takes & MLS rumor mill
In this episode, Andrew Wiebe, David Gass, Matt Doyle and Calen Carr gather in the studio to break down a nervous US women’s national team win in the World Cup and plead with Anthony Hudson’s agent to take on a few new clients after the former Rapids’ boss was linked with Newcastle. More seriously, the guys dig into the 2019 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target roster – where is Run DMB?! – and wonder how far Paxton Pomykal’s can go with USMNT, FC Dallas and beyond. Finally, it’s Gold Cup discussion following big USMNT and CanMNT wins at the Gold Cup.
Perhaps most importantly, Calen explains how a good diet (chicken nuggets and milk shakes) can help Wiebe recover from his ankle injury.
