Off the Crossbar, Episode One

Jason Greenwood, Trevor Brady, and Matt Montgomery

Introduction

In which we introduce you to the podcast.

Jeff Cassar

We discuss the opportunities, risks and potential for success facing Jeff Cassar ahead of his first season as head coach.

Team news

We discuss the likely absence of Chris Schuler and his certain replacement, Carlos Salcedo, and how that might affect Saturday's match against LA Galaxy. Devon Sandoval and Robbie Findley are also out, so we ask the inevitable question: Who starts at striker alongside Alvaro Saborio? We move on to the draft, particularly the departure of Ryan Neil and the likely signing of Joey Dillon.

LA Galaxy preview

We discuss Saturday's match against LA Galaxy, with a particular focus on the volatility of the match and what that could mean for the early part of the season.

Listener questions

We address pressing questions from listeners (who did not actually exist prior to our posting of this, but somehow managed to send us questions regardless), and we answer a pressing question of our own.
