The US are on the quarterfinals at the Gold Cup after a crucial 3-0 win vs. Nicaragua but just how much of a success was the group stage? Andrew, David and Ben discuss that as there’s some divided opinions on Arena’s decision to bring some of the longtime stalwarts. New England Revolution midfielder Kelyn Rowe also calls in to discuss his time with the team after being sent home, including what he needs to work on to return.
After the break, the guys discuss the return of MLS and all the latest transfer rumors. They also interview Houston Dynamo vice president/general manager Matt Jordan after the signing of Tomas Martinez and what the Dynamo front office exec thinks about Alberth Elis’ future with the club.
The Baer’s Lair debuts in the third segment as Ben makes his first “Baerantee” and the Hot-Take Hotline is aghast at some the decisions Arena has made so far. Your texts also make their first appearance on the show with the fans wondering who the best striker on USA is and if it’s time to think about a different No. 2 goalkeeper.
