MLS Week 23 was full of drama, and the guys jump right in with the NYC derby, a game Red Bulls fans likely won’t let their blue-clad counterparts forget for a long, long time. Plus, Giovani Dos Santos made his MLS debut – goal and an assist, no big deal – and the Whitecaps rolled to within two points of D.C. United in the Supporters’ Shield race. MLS’ most interesting man, ‘Caps centerback Pa Modou Kah, calls in to discuss his newfound knack for goals, fellow Gambian Kekuta Manneh and life in Qatar.
In the second segment, the guys take a look at a trio of midweek games with silverware (or at least the opportunity to play in a final) at stake. That’d be the first leg of the Canadian Championship between Montreal and Vancouver and a pair of US Open Cup semifinals. MLS pool goalkeeper turned Sporting KC standout Tim Melia joins the guys to share his story of perseverance.
In the mailbag, an Orlando fan wonders if Mike Petke has been forgotten, Adrian Heath’s lineup choices are questioned and Toronto FC’s American contingent grows.
