While the third and fourth rounds of the MLS SuperDraft went down via conference call, ESPN’s Taylor Twellman joined Andrew, David and Matt for a wide-ranging MLS discussion that included the former Revs and USMNT’s striker’s New Year’s resolution, Jordan Morris’ potential MLS future, the Rapids’ pursuit of a certain US national team goalkeeper, the rebuilding project going on in Los Angeles and uncertain MLS fates for Jermaine Jones and Didier Drogba.
Of course, there’s plenty going on outside MLS. Notably, the USMNT’s January camp is ongoing, and Matt puts 2016 – Olympic qualifying, Copa Centenario and World Cup qualifying – in context. More importantly, what’s up with Morris’ rumored Sounders signing after leaving Werder Bremen? Where does he fit in and what does it mean for Seattle? Plus, thoughts on what are the Chicago Fire are up to, Yura Movsisyan’s 2016 goal haul and a Costa Rican international linked with New York City FC.
In the mailbag, a certain Red Bulls’ player (of the past) created a stir on Craigslist, and MLS’s biggest Hungarian fan chimes in on Sporting KC’s newest signing and Krisztian Nemeth’s MLS future.
