ASA Podcast XCI: USMNT, SuperDooperDraft, and Spotting Talent in College Soccer by Drew Olsen

Drew and Sean are joined by ASA contributor and University of Virginia assistant-coach A.J. Barnold (@ajbarnold) to talk about the USMNT roster and the team under Arena, the MLS SuperDraft, how MLS teams identify and scout talent, and the role of the college game in the MLS and USMNT development structure. A.J.'s article (co-written with Aaron Neilsen) on the players available in the draft can be read here.

We mention a couple articles during the podcast. Here is Bill Reno's article on how terrible MLS teams are at selecting goalkeepers in the SuperDraft, and here is his article on why Blake didn't deserve to win Goalkeeper of the Year in 2016.
