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.
