Nos Audietis, Episode 77: Talking LA Galaxy with Taylor Twellman

The topic of the day is, unsurprisingly, the Sounders' failure to get past the LA Galaxy in the Western Conference finals. We dissect that series and try to figure what we can learn from it.

This definitely was not the show we wanted to be doing this week. Rather than talking about the most glorious comeback in MLS history, we're left contemplating what went wrong. To help us sort through that mess, we asked ESPN color commentator Taylor Twellman (@TaylorTwellman) to join us on the show.

Regardless of your personal feelings about Twellman, we'd hope that people can at least appreciate his honesty. He has a lot of positive things to say about how the Sounders played and where they are going. He also has some opinions that probably won't be as popular regarding one Fredy Montero, who's status is sure to be a hot issue over the offseason.

Along those same lines, Aaron and Jeremiah have an honest-to-goodness disagreement over the amount of criticism Montero deserves based on his never scoring in 10 playoff games. Jeremiah thinks it's valid, while Aaron chalks it up to small-sample size. Neither is exactly calling for the team to cut ties with the Colombian, though.

Since we weren't about to cut out the questions segments, the show goes a bit long this week. Hopefully you think it's worth it. A special thanks goes out to our producer Zach Woosley, who put together a pretty awesome intro.
