In this episode, Andrew Wiebe, David Gass, Matt Doyle and Calen Carr marvel at the wonder that is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. For on-field exploits, how about a hat-trick to take his season total to 26 goals? For off-field headlines, how about claiming he’s the “best ever” player in MLS history? Well, is Zlatan right? The guys tackle that question and the Galaxy’s ever increasing playoff chances. And for those with Zlatan fatigue, we’ve got plenty more…

Also in the episode … New Chicago Fire owner Joe Mansueto calls in to share his vision for the club, ideal Designated Player profile and what a move to Soldier Field in 2020 will do for the fanbase. Plus, what is Minnesota United’s 2019 narrative and should the Loons re-sign Darwin Quintero? Might it be better if Portland DON’T have a home playoff game? Which teams around the East playoff line will stay above it? Mario Mandzukic to LAFC?
