Poku-mania finally touches down in the ETR studio as the man himself joins the gang for the first time. Kwadwo discusses his run of form, the man who discovered him in the NPSL ranks (Eric Wynalda) and the advice that he’s getting from the other NYCFC stars. And we go from the player of the moment, to the result that has everyone talking: Right after Andrew calls them the best team in the league, Sporting Kansas City are humbled by the San Jose Earthquakes in midweek. Plus Simon asks how fans would react if the tables were turned in the case of the Brad Evans-Olimpia CCL brouhaha.
In the second segment, we look forward to a busy MLS weekend with plenty of questions. Is the West superior to the East as Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson claims? Who would you take: Kekuta Manneh or Fabian Castillo? Can NYCFC hang with the LA Galaxy? And then there’s the big Didier Drogba debut happening night. MLSsoccer.com's Montreal Impact beat writer Olivier Tremblay sets the scene ahead of the sold-out match at Stade Saputo.
In the mailbag, it’s your time to DJ as David goes through the top responses on MLS club anthems. Plus what do you need in your Appalachian Trail survival pack? Apparently a little bit of ETR and much more fun.
