Last Word SC: Alexi Lalas Flames USMNT, Erik Palmer-Brown To Man City, And Hot Teams In MLS
Matt and Robert start off talking about Alexi Lalas and his comments where he put the United States Men’s National Team on blast. We break down what he got right and how the USMNT players could clap back. We then discuss Bob Bradley calling out the Atlanta United FC hype train as he defends his 1998 Chicago Fire.
In segment two, Dan jumps in to talk about Erik Palmer-Brown‘s transfer to Manchester City. We discuss how we got to this point, what it means for the player, and why it isn’t that bad for Sporting KC or MLS. We then talk about Atlanta being on fire.
In the Round Table, the guys discuss Toronto FC possibly being the best team in league history. We then talk Vancouver Whitecaps and do some Weekend Pick ‘Ems.
