In the roundtable, Joe and Matt talk about Saint Louis FC gaining conditional approval as an MLS expansion team. A stadium deal is all that stands in the way. Then they banter about Jurgen Klinsmann’s job status and where the United States Men’s National Team sits in World Cup Qualifying after their rough start against Mexico and Costa Rica.
