ExtraTime, the Official Podcast of Major League Soccer (MLS)
We’re 90 minutes (OK, maybe 120) away from MLS Cup dreams being harbored by just four teams. The Conference Semifinal second legs are days away, and folks are starting to get a little nervy. Can the Red Bulls find their attack via Sacha Kljestan and take care of upstart Montreal? Doyle and Gass clash when to comes to the weapons at Jesse Marsch’s disposal. Speaking of clashes, David Villa escaped punishment from his run-in with Armando Cooper. The Toronto Sun’s Kurt Larson calls in to explain how the TFC squad are prepping for the big game and to take the fan temperature up North.
 
In the second segment, the guys head West to discuss what moves the Rapids can make to turn around their 1-0 deficit. Is Jermaine Jones the key? Should Kevin Doyle start? Then, in Dallas with Seattle already up 3-0, it’s time to ponder how Coach Of the Year candidate Oscar Pareja can inspire his team emotionally and tactically.
 
Armando Cooper gets his name put in for a CONCACAF Camp counselor position, but who stands alone on top of the playoff heap? Finally, the guys argue and agree about the awards snubs suffered by Giovinco and David Bingham, among others.
