What a great match, and a great week overall for Seattle Sounders FC on both sides of the county line! Despite a despicable performance by the referee, our boys have taken home eight (count 'em eight!!) straight wins to extend the unbeaten streak to 11.

The Flounders B-Team knows how to do it right: we do a little celebration of success this week by joining Doyle's Public House on their Designated Driver Express bus to see the KC Wizards get their wands broken by our Boys in Rave Green. Nate, Steve, and Tim are joined by a few friends, family, and fans of the show (it's hard to tell the difference some times!) We talk about current events (Bye, Clint, say it ain't so and so on), tactical observations & formation, and what we're drinking. We continue the conversation on the bus, then Tim and Steve recap the match in studio.

Be sure to check out Doyle's Public House at 208 St. Helens Avenue, right here in Tacoma, Washington for literally all of your soccer viewing and ale drinking needs.

Cat, Steve, Tim, and Kevin jump in to provide pre-match, halftime, and post-match coverage live to tape! (Congratulations, Belgium.) Seattle faces Portscum in enemy territory. The match was a doozy, but limited disciplinary calls from Chris Penso made for a very chippy match. Portland came to play, but, true to form, their idiotic tifo definitely cursed Joey's chainsaw.

Own-goal victory aside, we have some questions, and we try to answer them. We also have a lot of fun along the way, in true FBT style.

Great visit from Casey Catherwood from Cheney Stadium, home of Sounders FC2, and his friend Pierce Adler!

Steve, Kevin, Tim, and Nate break down the FC Dallas game and try to make sense of the nearly unprecedented 5-win streak. Are Sounders FC going to continue on the path to glory, sitting at 10 points out of first place? Or is a big correct coming? Does this run of success excuse the sins of the past? How's Schmetzer doing? Is Garth out of the hot seat? Who did S2 actually play on Steve's birthday? (He doesn't remember).

All this and more on Season 2, Episode 20 of the Flounders B-Team Podcast!

Tim, Steve & SummerTime Kevin in studio to break down NYCFC, Minnesota United, and the state of the team after four consecutive wins and a seven-match unbeaten streak! Can we hold on to the momentum?

(56:31) We talk about potential signings (yes, the MLS transfer window closed Wednesday), but leave the close analysis to Niko Moreno who talks about his connections, how he thought the transfer window would go, and what he would do with one more day in the summer window, and how he might build on the team for 2019 if he were King for a Day.

When we said "dig deep" that's not what we meant.

Special guest Tashi Langton @fosssoccer joins Cat, Tim, Steve, and Kevin for a raucous walk through the Portland match, some World Cup shenanigans, a minor studio disaster, and TACTICS. come join the summer fun! We also discuss the problems that Ruidiaz solves, some of our roster choices over the season, and where we might finish this year. It's not as bleak as it looks -- the spread between the good teams and the bad teams in the West is very palpable.

In studio, we welcome @ELROLONW Niko Moreno, writer for @sounderatheart and personality on @DEPORTETOTALUSA. He gives us his journalistic insight into the loss at RSL Away (where championships seem oh so far away). We also chat briefly about the Fresno-S2 match, and speculate on whether the FO is OK dropping the US Open Cup this year. (Spoiler, turns out they are.)

Then we move firmly into Niko's wheelhouse with roster construction and scouting. Then *tons* of listener questions and bantzzzz.
