Grant interviews Philadelphia Union coach Jim Curtin (at 39:21) about his team's second-best record in MLS, the significance of the Brenden Aaronson sale to Salzburg, how the Union tries to balance being a selling team and a team competing for trophies, why it's important to stick to your guns on a long-term philosophy, the influence of the Bob Bradley coaching tree, and how he has been able to earn every bit of his coaching success, including starting as an interim boss at Philly and getting the wins necessary in 2019 to sign a two-year contract extension.

Before that, Grant and Chris Wittyngham of the Chelsea Mike'd Up Podcast break down a busy soccer weekend, including USMNT and WNT Yanks Abroad, the potential title-race impact of Virgil van Dijk's ACL surgery, Sergio Agüero's inappropriate contact with AR Sian Massey-Ellis, Barça and Real Madrid testing positive for the FIFA Flu, Milan's return to Italian contender status and the decision not to award the MLS Supporters Shield in 2020.
