In this episode, Andrew Wiebe, David Gass, Matt Doyle and Bobby Warshaw sit down to recap all the action from Heineken Rivalry Week. First up, El Trafico, the most bonkers rivalry in MLS (on the field, at least). That’s in large part thanks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is living rent-free in LAFC’s own building. Doyle and Warshaw break down the tactics and Gass shares his experience inside Banc of California Stadium.
Also in this show … Hell is Real lives up to the billing (and the guys eulogize FC Cincinnati), FC Dallas make a point in the Texas Derby, 2nd place in the West is up for grabs, NYCFC might just be the best team in the East, Philadelphia’s quest for a successful season, US Open Cup preview and an interview with new Colorado Rapids head coach Robin Fraser.
