Matt Hartman (@MattsHartman) joined to tick through the U20 player pool in detail, lay out the bumpy (at best) transition from the DA to MLS Next, gets enraged at me for suggesting Cade Cowell could be a right back, goes in hard on the 2004 birth year, and tells me he cringed at my answer to the golden generation vs permanent wave of talent debate. Dude absolutely knows his stuff.
