Super Bowl hangover? Spend an hour with ExtraTime Radio!
After reminiscing about the most painful MLS losses ever – sorry Falcons and Atlanta United fans – the guys turn their attention to the US national team, which concluded January camp by knocking off Jamaica 1-0 in Chattanooga thanks to some Benny Feilhaber magic and a Jordan Morris finish. The results against the Reggae Boyz and Serbia weren’t incredible, but Doyle says it’s the process and the system that should reassure US fans ahead of a huge Hex game against Honduras in March. What should Bruce Arena’s XI be for that match? Who should get the nod at the No. 10? Will Da Boy be a 2017 revelation? All that, plus the latest MLS news.
Speaking of (potentially huge, massive, gigantic) news, FourFourTwo’s Paul Tenorio reports Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez could come to MLS as soon as this summer. You know what that means. Andrew and Dave get on the phone to grill Tenorio about which teams could be in the running, how much moolah is would take to get a deal done and prognosticate about the Little Pea’s impact on and off the field. It could be THE summer blockbuster in MLS, so you might as well prepare yourself for the possibility now.
In the mailbag, Doyle gives his take on what Chicharito could bring to MLS, listeners chime in with more #MLSDPbusts and Andrew suggests a name for the award, then the guys brainstorm some 2017 MLS bucket list items.
