Only one man could overshadow Chicharito in the MLS news cycle … Julian Gressel! Atlanta United got $1 million in allocation money and D.C. United got a player who they think will take them to another level. Who is the deal’s big winner? Where will Ben Olsen play his new piece? Will Atlanta have any regrets?
In the midst of all the Chicharito hoopla, the word “retirement” entered the lexicon, thanks to a vlog by the man himself. Is it a big deal? What’s the bigger context? Andrew and David discuss, then call ESPN’s Taylor Twellman to chime in on the big stories of the day, including Michael Bradley ankle drama in Toronto.
Also in this show ... 1v1 interviews with Jonathan dos Santos and Guillermo Barros Schelotto, MLSsoccer.com’s Tom Bogert on news in Colorado and Philly, Franco Jara makes FC Dallas a contender.
