3rd Degree the Podcast #117

No Dan Crooke on this week's edition of 3rd Degree the Podcast so Peter Welpton and Buzz Carrick are left picking up the slack. What a fun week this was, winning is better than losing. But just how did Coach Luchi Gonzalez pull it off? New tactics, new grit, new playing style, a little play the kids, and it's a whole new outlook.3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by Soccer90.com. 25% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on Soccer90.com.

3rd Degree the Podcast #116

What a brutal week it was for FC Dallas. Your 3rd Degree the Podcast host trio is here to tear it all down. Or really just bury it since it's already pretty much torn down. There's plenty of blame for this FC Dallas dumpster fire to go around and we sift through a lot of it. Poor games versus the Loons and LAFC, what's gone wrong, Facu debut, Che debut, what can they team build on, is there hope, Peter's fan experience, and more. 3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/). 25% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/).

3rd Degree the Podcast #115

Buzz is still on his travels as your regular trio look forward to FC Dallas' return to action this weekend discussing what FC Dallas may look like - Will the new guy play? Does Paxton get his start? Does Che earn his debut, or is there even a fit center back left? They also cover Schon's Euro moment, Justin Che's potential Bayern move, what Thomas Roberts does next, and save time for a small debate on whether FC Dallas should take a leaf out of the Austin FC playbook or if it's simply a hype train to nowhere. 3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/). 25% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/).

3rd Degree The Podcast #114

With the international break in full swing, the trio look back at a DFW influenced USMNT, and how FC Dallas may have missed a big opportunity from it. Buzz drops two Huntsmen Dumps in the woods in Idaho, Peter asks about the question of 'should FC Dallas just keep calm and carry on?', and Dan manages to forget Michael Barrios while comparing an ex-FCD XI in MLS to Luchi's current roster. 3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/). 25% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/).

3rd Degree the Podcast #113

The Colorado Rapids game certainly gave us plenty to talk about on 3rd Degree the Podcast as the international break is upon us. Your trio of hosts break down the bad and the good - including a kerfuffle over just how much good - of the game last week. Front bad, mids not bad, D bad, another mystery sub... lots to talk about. Then Buzz has a 5 point plan to right the ship. Finally, it was time for some kit talk, Inter Miami giggles, and some Dante Sealy stuff. All that and more on 3rd Degree the Podcast. 3rd Degree the Podcast is brought to you by [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/). 25% Off Sitewide for All 3rd Degree Podcast listeners with Promo Code 3RDDEGREE on [Soccer90.com](https://soccer90.com/).

3rd Degree the Podcast #112

There was a whole lot of FC Dallas for your 3rd Degree the Podcast hosts - Peter Welpton, Dan Crooke, and Buzz Carrick - to chew on this week. Improvement against RSL due to Luchi's tactical tweaks to Jara and Acosta, a new shape (sort of), Tessmann as a 6, Ricaurte excellent, Ryan good, Hedges bad... Then Buzz went to training and found a whole bunch of players MIA including Matt Hedges and Szabolcs Schön. You got questions - we got answers. What's the lineup at Colorado? When will Paxton start? Who's the surprise signing Buzz is predicting? Why the Justin Che overreaction? When does Brandon Servania return? Are the Facundo Quignon links real? And we pay tribute to our friend Denise Isla who passed away this week.
