Show Notes

Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line, we’ve got so much to talk about. The guys do Good Thing, Bad Thing, Big Thing to review the loss to New York City FC. We discuss several pool reporter questions that Red submitted as well.

Then Joel Soria joins the show for Know Thy Enemy. We talk about how the San Jose Earthquakes got on the run they’re currently on. Joel discusses man marking, Matias Almeyda’s mentality, and the attack. We also get the latest on what’s going on with Chris Wondolowski and Tommy Thompson. Then we look ahead to Saturday. It’s not looking great for the Pids.

To finish off the show, we’ve got three great questions talking about trades and officiating.
