S2 E43: Robin Fraser’s Pablo-to-Pep Rating

Hello Colorado Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red, we’re talking all things Robin Fraser. We briefly touch on the loss to Real Salt Lake and the upcoming game against New York Red Bulls.

Then we focus the rest of the show on the Rapids hiring Robin Fraser as the new head coach. Red recalls his time at training and the press conference and some of the key takeaways. We go over Fraser’s history as a player, coach, and in Colorado. Rabbi discusses Fraser’s time in New York and with Toronto FC and what it could mean for his approach to Colorado.

We also discuss what this means for the players the rest of the season and the timescale of when we’ll see Fraser implement his ideas.
