For those of us around during the Cletus/MetroStars days, this interview is gold!

It was a roundtable discussion with Mathis, Steve Jolley, Brian White, and Connor Lade -- but it quickly turns into an interview by Jolley of Clint. He talks about his nightclub memories and dishes in great detail on how Metro management fucked him over when he was aiming to move abroad to Germany.

Great interview, though I thought it was hilarious to see Mathis as "Old Man Cleetus," complaining about kids these days and their cellular phones, haha.  Considering his history, it was also funny to hear him talking about how the coach has the last word (didn't he point at his wrist after scoring a goal for Hannover, as if to tell the coach "it's about time" he got some playing time?).  I love Mathis.  Bar none among the best Metros ever.  But I don't know that I would want to coach too many Mathises.

 

Another surprise in here was how warmly both Mathis and Jolley spoke about Lothar.  We all hated him, but it seems as if he did right by his teammates at least.
