Joe and Jordan analyze three teams that started the 2020 MLS season on the opposite of the front foot, and attempt to figure out what's gone wrong and how it can be fixed.

3:55 - LA Galaxy: why the reliance on so many crosses and (simultaneously) why so narrow? The phrase "attacking posture" is used.

18:40 - San Jose Earthquakes: man-to-man marking is wildly complicated and sometimes organized chaos can be less "organized" and more so the other thing.

32:37 - Portland Timbers: attacking transition indecision + not playing to your individual strengths = predictable patterns and slow rate of play.
