ExtraTime, the Official Podcast of Major League Soccer (MLS)

In this episode, Andrew Wiebe, David Gass, Matt Doyle and Charlie Davies go deep on Major League Soccer’s Week 10. First up, as always, the winners from the weekend: Ezequiel Barco, Jim Curtin and the Union, Dab God aka Derrick Etienne Jr. and New York City FC. As for losers, FC Cincinnati’s tailspin continues – now with hard-truth quotes from Fanendo Adi – and referee Ted Unkel is under the microscope again as Columbus feels jobbed by a controversial call.

Also in this episode, analyzing the Francisco Calvo trade to the Chicago Fire, Diego Valeri joins the 70-70 club and the Timbers make a massive move! Brian Fernandez is headed to the Rose City in a record transfer from Liga MX’s Necaxa. Where will he play? How will he change the Timbers? Last but not least, some extremely MLS-y trades as the transfer deadline looms.

In the mailbag … Charlie picks his all-time 5v5 teammate, the guys identity surprise MLS stars of 2019 and the Houston Dynamo’s fast start is fun (but may not be sustainable).
