Filibuster podcast episode 190: Concussive air ordinance

Bill Hamid, position ratings, and Philly are all up for discussion this week Before we get to this weekend’s D.C. United game against the Philadelphia Union, Jason, Adam, and Donald (no Ben this week) are here to put some D.C. United into your ears. They start the show by talking about D.C. United’s 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake, including a lot of praise for Bill Hamid and some, uh, not-praise for Bobby Boswell. The guys then give out some midseason grades to Black-and-Red players on a position-by-position basis. They end the show by talking about this weekend’s game against the...

After injury layoff, Bill Hamid is back at his best

After missing the opening 12 games of the 2016 season, Bill Hamid has reclaimed his spot as the best goalkeeper in Major League Soccer At the conclusion of 90 minutes and stoppage time on Friday in Utah, D.C. United - somehow, some way - walked off of Real Salt Lake's home field with a point. By measurable statistics, United had been bossed around for the entirety of the game, only for midfielder Jared Jeffrey to power a header home in stoppage time for a 1-1 draw. But none of that was possible without some miraculous saves from United’s Bill Hamid. Hamid had his best performance to...

Bill Hamid’s saves, Jared Jeffrey’s late goal earn a point for D.C. United

Jared Jeffrey’s header in stoppage time Friday earned D.C. United a 1-1 draw against Real Salt Lake, but if not for goalkeeper Bill Hamid, United never would have been in position to steal a point at Rio Tinto Stadium. In his fifth start since returning from a long-term knee injury, Hamid was sensational from start […]

WATCH: Burrito Martinez chips Bill Hamid, puts RSL up 1-0

Juan Manuel Martinez is a special player. There is no disputing this, and I don’t think anybody’s really tried. But just in case you’re still on the fence, this goal against D.C. United is the sort of thing that should offer you additional confirmation. First, though, a little context: Bill Hamid had been unbeatable until the 57th minute. He saved excellent shots from Yura Movsisyan, Luke Mulholland and Joao Plata. He’s even done it since (yes, this is real-time writing — there’s no pretending otherwise.) Hamid's only human and DAMN that was a super cheeky chip by El Burrito!!...

Predicted United States national team squad for the 2018 World Cup

Who could be on the roster for Russia 2018? Right after the 2014 World Cup, I gave my way-too-early prediction for the 23-man roster to represent the United States in Russia in 2018. Oh man, I was so wrong. So bad. Two years later, we all have a better idea of who could/couldn’t be on the roster. Especially after seeing the squad finish 4th at Copa America Centenary, it's much clearer. So, I give you my updated still-way-too-early prediction, which will also probably not be right at all. Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan*, Bill Hamid, Evan Horvath (Tim Howard, Sean Johnson, Zack Steffen) Guzan...
