Canada Day and the Fourth of July brought fireworks, and Andrew and David bring Calen Carr in to help them understand what they saw during four straight days of MLS action. New York is blue, there’s no doubt about that. But is Jack Harrison the next big thing? David is convinced. Graham Zusi is reinvigorated, and that’s a good thing for Sporting KC. Steven Gerrard and Robbie Keane look like they’ve been playing together for years, and that’s a bad thing for every team that isn’t the Galaxy. Plus, Tim Howard nabs his first shutout, Orlando City SC fall apart defensively and Jordan Morris scores a banger that even Jurgen Klinsmann felt compelled to praise.

 In the second segment, Bobby Warshaw gives the inside scoop on what life’s like in USL. The road trips, the level of play, where it fits into the youth development scheme, the stadiums and fans that fill them and where it fits among the world’s lower divisions. Trust us, you’ll learn something.

Finally, as the transfer window opens, the guys try to decide who the biggest player loss has been so far this season. Oba? Nemeth? How about Matt Miazga or Jermaine Jones? Then they see what MLS could borrow from Iceland, and Calen takes self promotion to a whole new level.
