Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red
Ep. 16: Aignergate
Hello Rapids Fans! Today Rabbi and Red have a jam-packed show. We recap the Colorado Rapids loss to Sporting KC over the weekend, talking about who didn't show up, what went wrong tactically, and why losing to Sporting isn't the end of the world. The lads then take a deep dive into the New York Red Bulls, who they are, how they play, and what the Rapids can do to beat them on Saturday.
In this week's rendition of From Field 20, Matt gives full injury updates on all Rapids players of relevance. Good news! Everyone is progressing and making their way back to fitness. Nana Boateng's even been cleared to do some light header drills, which is an excellent sign. Mark pokes fun at Matt having a slight slip up during a press conference that left Manager Anthony Hudson very confused. We finish off the segment with an exclusive interview with Sam Nicholson, the newest member of the Colorado Rapids, and his glorious Scottish accent.
After much discussion and people hitting us up on Twitter, we've decided to appease our listeners with a special segment #AskHTHL: Aignergate. The guys break down how the Rapids got into this mess. We recap what we know and what could be true based on what we know. The guys talk about the options going forward for Stefan Aigner and Hudson and who's really to blame for this cantankerous curfuffle. We finish off by breaking down the finances of the situation and discussing what options the Rapids have once the summer transfer window opens.
We recorded this game during Huddersfield-Chelsea cause Matt's obsessed with David Wagner. Apologies in advance.
