Black and Red Report: All-Star game preview and DCU looks to snap skid against PSG
CSN Washington dot com. Welcome to the black and red report Kelly -- joined by Sebastian Salazar and we have Dave Johnson coming to you look over the phone lines from the -- all star game welcome Sebastien yet to be here and welcome -- Well there is right there a particular -- because vs but also our game -- recruited a lot of these guys are watched. Our -- also and then going there was sort of beat it to the highlighted error player of course coach. The audience but it sort of -- a press conference you know it's a problem for the club or whatever -- as the captain. Of this -- -- even bigger. What -- done. Order late in the Edward displayed -- -- accomplishment -- that it nothing special but he skeptical of results -- -- And like going their Dario battle was somebody who. Was nurtured fun out -- -- -- boxer and and you know injury curtailed. -- her career the thought is that there's not because Baffert said about it. You know either and that's why they're -- so it was relief -- -- -- -- today the BP get out of there. Sebastien what are we expecting out of tomorrow. Well I think it'll be obviously a very competitive affair for the Hamas all stars you know they're trying to prove not just for themselves they can compete against the European champions but also. It's a measuring stick for the league and I'm really interested to see. What Ben Olson's gonna do not just with a starting eleven but tactically when your playing at a team like Chelsea that is superior on a talent basis. Idea hang back and maybe play for result that'll make the league look good. Or do you let your guys let their hair down. Trying to score some goals and maybe get you know get blown out a shoot out five to three or something like that and wouldn't really talk about it -- -- audience will also be there. I said he hopes that also lots of my have a little bit of fun. They've I'm the man format of the Hamas all star game just so interesting compared to other professional leagues. Primarily because you know other professional leagues show off their talent against their talent but. It's interesting to me that this is international talent in Chelsea playing against the United States and -- all stars so how competitive the game are we expecting. I think it's going to be competitive Damon rarely get much out of defendants in her world title -- -- burgers for reckless is that match for. They'll rent the bottom of -- -- -- they're changing in this format like they did. That was six years ago. And he's he airs seven years that would ever been -- played in -- now. It's it's changed so much for him from just being where it was or east vs west of where it was as former casual. You know their part whereas now. -- -- -- they want a player for it and it is if there is a third of five on the line here. There is also but look what side do you know what we we always -- all viable Chelsea or whoever whatever seed order certain there's -- -- -- beat them. But -- pretty stand up there trying to pretty earth are very challenging thing I. It was real talk about their spiritual approach. Although there's been a -- sets today that. They're -- good players -- -- mind need it to try to your third their next Bradley as the -- -- kilometers from back there. You're more training. And look at that stage you are a lot of those guys they -- starter 'cause there but I -- -- -- -- managers are are are the tour factor area that accompanies them. It's not lately -- -- the Notre Dame last year -- that's what happens when you play Manchester and I could be the better. But it is and they had a chance answers are more. Think they have bullets -- on back to here in DC and address things on the united front specifically. Coming -- the two losses two tough losses for DC united not exactly anticipated whatsoever they've had so much momentum going through the seasons as Sebastien. How how much of effect does this have on the rest of the season could this immediately to a little bit of a tailspin not. I don't think so I think personally a look at the personalities in this locker room I don't think panels not a guy like when there is are -- allow it. But I do think there's some important things to acknowledge about the last month you know the attack just hasn't been as diversity. I hasn't been as dangerous in the final third has been lacking if it's not Chris Connie is scoring right now. There's not really a lot of other guys. That are creating chances and making plays for themselves so that's certainly concerns come but you look at the last two results Houston a bit of an aberration you have an early red car that throws things off. On Columbus so they really dominated possession but weren't dangerous in doing so I think that's the concern. Maybe one reason for that. Is that we've got a lot of breaks in the summer you know united is playing almost every 34 days during the month of may when they really starter rack up some points. That continuity that chemistry it's dissipated over the summer there's been a lot of playoffs a couple two week layoffs and I think that's really impacted the chemistry. Now August is gonna be six months six games that month September the same deal so I think we'll start to see that build back up for this team they've put the officiating you've seen in the last two matches. Well as it is -- -- -- -- workers aren't as good about our -- the Cardinals carpet. Yeah you're you're start and receive the beauty of the place. -- shape -- -- That the swagger is -- something something -- -- in a while I don't think it -- all out -- The best and better collapsed about but the good. You know teachers and gave them battles but as -- you know being that are partners and then it still wondering. And that he had a lot that indeed here's the Batman they're the sport of public response. And that worried about what an anchor mean their scheme and but for agent and I don't so that we saw that they are in in what does that mean but all the respect in the there's -- outburst from the on this group. Books that are here that brought up here or not interpret -- quicker period of time. Columbus center and in my mind are -- director should've done better -- last -- -- in Columbus but they -- you. Connection just -- out there the job they're they're they're course obvious -- I expect. But all's thought you know we need to seed great resort will become part it was more a factor that we know and be it will be but I think. Not but it may impact on the game be as simple as that he typically has collapsed support belt. And I think that that's what it's not so much on the defense -- right now what were the first period is. Is you're sitting bet that both -- -- met -- the situation back where you're. They're putting the pressure on the other you know -- and you know -- thing that we're not in -- -- -- but the purpose that you need to have. If reports out that I'm here because it's better perspective -- TCU will welcome harassing germane to their stadium on Saturday Sebastien when are we expecting that. We expect slot Donnie Abraham of -- the -- Swedish striker who is all the rage right now in European soccer one of the top talents in the world one of the top two or three strikers in the world if you listen anybody that knows anything about kind of the global scene. He's one of the big names expected we just heard today from Carlo Ancelotti they're coached to play forty to 45 minutes he's trained today with a group at Princeton. How will travel to DC and expected to make his PST debuts that's really the main storyline. For DC United's players again -- it a chance to test themselves against the very best and in Ibrahim and it's. You know the one of the very best players at his position in the world for DC united defense that is admitted some issues over the summer. You're not gonna get a better litmus test. And gave the last tuneup maybe before I really -- August coming had a great. Yet balance it certainly penalties that -- one night and yesterday problems -- accept it is that some of coaching jobs it's about. Part of our senator -- Turkey is served well but so also adult circuit it -- respect these -- Burberry coats in every agent of the league and how much. Demand is there is that other players and -- circuit will be a different story. On a Saturday but you know used the word out what was it that. I deeper in their respective EST date you'll get as he is not a bet but just that the sport soccer out. The most expensive football player in the history of the game in terms of number amount of money that they transfer we've prepared well. -- made -- EST UST if you can't speak it out there and you don't think about it that -- a real all the short all week. You know give them a veritable let them and didn't select soccer back. Bleeding until you know Columbus prospect out. You know right up -- so it's it's certainly talked about it but I also thought about it that was what it was great to be -- first place. But he nearly got picked -- society yet it's. So it was over that was about but -- -- are now part. I think -- in the quality the depth but it felt ability what was being to believe that that they will get out of this this stretch of our older it -- and sparked the back. I've supported it but they're all -- -- -- well thank you for joining us from the all star game we are certainly looking forward to it. For Sebastian and Davis and account we're gonna put a wrap on this black and red report we'll see you next time race here. CSN Washington dot com.
