It’s time to dive in the MLS deep end after a two-week break for Copa America Centenario. But first, a little domestic cup action as the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup hits the fourth round. MLS teams dominated, snagging 14 spots in the Round of 16 via late goals, penalty kicks and even a little gamesmanship in Los Angeles. Plus, are things going to get worse for New York City FC before they get better? And which matchup in the Round of 16 is the headliner?

In the second segment, it’s time to look back at the first third (ish) of the season and preview what’s to come. Translation: David tortures Andrew and Matt by bringing back some old predictions.
