Max + Vince Podcast #160 | John McCarthy Takes It One Match At A Time With The Guys

Last week, the Max + Vince Podcast returned for the first time in 2023. This week, the podcast returns with a video version and a great guest. Fresh off his third clean sheet of the MLS season, John McCarthy joins Max and Vince ahead of another busy week. But before the guys talk with John, they break down everything that happened in Colorado over the week. Despite the 0-0 scoreline, Max and Vince had plenty to talk about including defending set pieces and LAFC’s use of the ball. After that, the guys preview the week ahead with a difficult clash in Vancouver in the quarterfinals of the Concacaf Champions League before LAFC returns home to face Austin FC. Is there a budding rivalry between Austin and LAFC or was last season just a one-off? Finally, the guys welcome their first guest of the season to the show. John McCarthy sits down to talk about how the altitude in Colorado affects goalkeepers, his mindset ahead of the busy week, and, of course, how his NCAA brackets are doing. All that and more on Inside LAFC: The Max + Vince Podcast. Don’t forget to subscribe, rate, review… and tell a friend!
