S3 E033 Draw Two And The Color’s Red – Talking New Mexico United

Chris and Alicia come together to talk about New Mexico United’s 0-1 to Loudoun United this past weekend at The Lab.

On this episode, Chris and Alicia catch up from their busy work weeks. Chris tries the Naked Chicken Chalupa and gives Alicia his best food review. Alicia asks Chris about Black Diamonds, the new Supporters Group that Chris has launched to support New Mexico United. He gives some of the backstory on how he started the group concept. They also talk about the latest news, first reported by The Athletic, that the MLS is creating a Division 3 League.

After the first break, Alicia gives her #SixWordsForSaturday and Chris follows up with his phrase. They break down New Mexico’s woes with red cards, their performance in the first 20 min vs. the last 20 mins, and talk about Captain Josh Suggs’ leadership on the pitch.

Just after the second break, Chris and Alicia talk about New Mexico’s next opponent, Real Monarchs SLC. They talk about the Monarchs’ roster, including new and old players and their latest form. They cap off the episode with weekly predictions. Chris promotes Seek & Strike Collective’s Kings of Chaos First Strike Contest (Presented by Rude Boy Cookies).
