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

Major League Soccer's long-running podcast Extratime is now available on YouTube, every Monday and Thursday at 5 pm ET!

In this episode, it’s all about otherworldly performances from No. 10s. First, Alejandro Pozuelo has Andrew guzzling from the poisoned Toronto FC chalice after one of the best debuts in MLS history. But the Reds’ $11 million man couldn’t match the jaw-dropping exploits of LAFC’s Carlos Vela, who is following Bob Bradley’s request to aspire to Leonel Messi levels while he chases the Landon Donovan MVP trophy. Don’t forget the kids, either! Doyle says a change is underway in MLS. More domestic teenage attackers than ever before are playing and making a real impact.

In the second segment, a heaping helping of #CCLFever with Sporting KC manager Peter Vermes and Peter Brownell. Who, you might ask? The man who discovered #CCLFever, of course! Vermes gives the guys insight into the success of Krisztián Németh (AKA the MLS Sergio Aguero), the matchup with Monterrey in the Concacaf Champions League semifinals and the reason for the change from pressing to possession in KC.

In the mailbag, Calen tells his Memo Rodriguez-Houston Dynamo story, Switzerland decides neutrality is boring and supporters get salty about the refs.
