58:02

Daryl and Taylor answer your listener questions! If you want to ask one of your own, you can do so at totalsoccershow.com/questions

Arsenal Premier League preview: Zito Madu talks Pepe and Ceballos, Ozil's role, and why MLS will fail at being apolitical
56:03

Daryl talks to SB Nation staff writer Zito Madu about all things Arsenal. Unai Emery's style of play is yet to emerge as anything identifiable at the Emirates, but the signings of Pepe and Ceballos give reason for optimism. Ozil's role is still TBD, but how that unfolds will be important either way. Meanwhile, youngsters like Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock will have a role to play.

Starting 43:45, we also talk about Major League Soccer's attempts to be apolitical, and why that approach is destined to fail.

Two stories by Zito:

Liverpool Premier League preview: Keith Costigan goes deep on LFC's evolution under Klopp
42:12

You know Keith Costigan from FOX, perhaps for his Bundesliga and Seattle Sounders coverage. But Keith is also a Liverpool fan and expert, and it was a pleasure to discuss all things LFC with him.

We go into detail on why Liverpool have gone so long without a Premier League title, why that might be about to change, and how Liverpool will handle three strikers who just played summer their second summer tournament in a row.

We also get super-detailed about the current iteration of Klopp's pressing system. It's no longer so all-out heavy metal, but something more controlled, possibly more effective, and certainly more sustainable.

54:59

Taylor talks to The Athletic's Joe Lowery about his three favorite topics: the US U20 national team, the senior US mens national team, and Major League Soccer. The amount of knowledge in his brain is legitimately absurd. 

For the U20s, we focus on realistic expectations for an incredibly talented squad, who might start where, and whether or not Alex Mendez has the best left foot in the US player pool.

After that, we take a look at some of the teams that are having strong seasons so far in Major League Soccer and some... that are not. We use the patented thumbs up/down method to get to the bottom of things, and also take a moment to sing the praises of Bob Bradley and DaMarcus Beasley.

Lastly, there's some Gold Cup roster conversation. Who is Joe most excited to see and what's his preferred starting lineup if the US were to make it to the final.

Could the USA play with a left-sided false fullback? Would 5 USMNT players beat 11 amateurs? Why is Berhalter called 3G? (and more listener questions)
56:54

We answer eight listener questions!

Why is Berhalter called 3G?

We've seen the US with a false rightback in Nick Lima and Tyler Adams. Could they play with a false leftback?

Could 5 USMNT players beat 11 amateur players?

Is Michael Bradley's defensive crouch really such a bad thing?

What is the point of metal studs?

If the Premier League and the English Football League and the National League are all different leagues, why aren't the top four tiers of English football a closed system?

If US Soccer is paying USWNT player salaries in the NWSL, is it apples and oranges to compare men's and women's national team pay?

Premier League Panic Rankings w/ Adam Snavely
57:33

If you're looking for a Daryl Grove update, there's a very brief one at the start of this episode (it's as good of news as can be expected). 

After that, Taylor calls up Adam Snavely, the author of the always hilarious (and consistently informative) Premier League Panic Rankings, which you can find over on The Athletic. They discuss how the idea first came to be, how Adam comes up with material, and the players and clubs that tend to give him the most ammunition.

But we also get into a wide variety of topics (the importance of Peter Crouch, the photoshopping abilities of Emily Sonnett, the demise of the #10 role, and possible destinations for Mesut Ozil, for example). Lots of good stuff in this one, so don't hesitate to put it in your ears!

53:11

Oh, and we also discuss the (possible) beginning of a new era in MLS, with clubs selling players for big money... and then utilizing that money to actually sign players. What a world!

We also review some of the best/most interesting moves in the offseason thus far, as well as some that didn't come to fruition (Kellyn Acosta, Lucho Acosta, and Andrew Gutman, for example).

Transfer Deadline Day review and USMNT analysis w/ ESPN'S Sebastian Salazar
01:03:23

ESPN's Sebastian Salazar joins the show to discuss the (semi-disappointing) Transfer Deadline Day that was, with specific emphasis on Luciano Acosta, Miguel Almiron, and Sebastian Giovinco. 

We then get into his work as a sideline reporter, including which interviewees are particularly challenging and what his approach is when translating on the fly.

Lastly, there's a solid chunk of USMNT conversation, which is a fitting word to use given that locker room communication seems to be a major emphasis of the Gregg Berhalter era.
