Off the Crossbar, Episode 6: The Gang Talks About the Philadelphia Union

USA TODAY Sports

We're back with another episode! With a match against the Philadelphia Union coming on Saturday, we talk to an opposition expert.

Let's kick things off this week with a nice little announcement: You can subscribe to our podcast on iTunes. Here, go do that now if you haven't already, or give us a review - just, you know, don't lie. People shouldn't be tricked into listening to this.

Introduction

We hastily and lazily introduce the podcast. Today, we're without podcast introducer Jason Greenwood, so you're stuck with me doing a poor, poor job of it. Today, we're joined by Trevor Brady, Charles Barnard (of From the Upper Deck), my dad, Steve Montgomery, and for a special segment, Philadelphia Union expert Scott Kessler.

Recap: Sporting Kansas City

We talk about the Sporting Kansas City match, and while we're still searching for words about our offensive performance, we have some high praise for the defense - given it was, well, fantastic, it's hard to argue.

Preview: Philadelphia Union

We face Philadelphia Union on Saturday, and who better to talk to than somebody who knows the team considerably better than we do? Scott Kessler, Union expert and a contributor at No Short Corners, talks with us about the team. We didn't have time for the full interview, though, so do catch it in its entirety at the bottom of the show notes.

International duty

With Benji Lopez, Jordan Allen, and Justen Glad out on international duty, we talk about how cool that is, and we get excited about our young United States youth national team players.
