Max + Vince Podcast #101 - We Kinda Told You So & Special Guest Matt Doyle
When you're right, you're right. And we're definitely feeling like we're coming correct these days. After a rough patch to start the season, LAFC looks like they are back on track with three wins in a row. The Black & Gold are making their way back up the standings and are now just three points back of their rivals to the south. Max & Vince toot their own horns a little bit by talking about how they knew this team wasn't far off and what they think has been the reason by the recent results. They also talk about the absolutely world-class finish by Carlos Vela to secure a win over Real Salt Lake and why Kim Moon-Hwan's pass was just as nice. We look ahead to a rivalry match with Portland. And to close the show, MLSsoccer.com's Matt Doyle joins the guys to talk about the USMNT, LAFC's early struggles, why Eduard Atuesta is worth a fortune, and if Diego Rossi should be close behind Gianluca Busio. All that and more on the latest episode of the Max + Vince Podcast. Be sure to share, rate, and review the podcast on your favorite podcasting platform.
