ExtraTime Radio

There's no shortage of big-time news in Major League Soccer, and the guys cover it all! First up, David Beckham's MLS to Miami dreams are finally realized, and South Florida native Arielle Castillo joins the guys to explain what it all means in the short and long term. Plus, Justin Meram is on the move after Columbus Crew SC completed their second blockbuster trade of the offseason, sending the Iraq international to Orlando.

In other news, the US national team put Andrew to sleep on Sunday night, Zlatan-to-Galaxy rumors are back and stronger than ever, Sporting KC signed a winger (but not the striker they need), a World Cup finalist is close to signing with Toronto, the Rapids signed another center back and the mailbag is full of Loons fans who can't believe Christian Ramirez didn't even make the US squad against Bosnia.

Before he was the Sounders' general manager and president of soccer, before he was the man who helped build Real Salt Lake into a champion, before he was an MLS goalkeeper, Garth Lagerwey was a young man trying to figure out what to do with his life. He found himself in the parking lot of a German club asking for a chance to train, and the rest is history. Tune in for MLS story time with one of the league's biggest personalities and most influential executives on this edition of ExtraTime Radio.

There's plenty more in this show, as well, including Ballou Tabla's big move to Barcelona, the sticky situation Lee Nguyen and the Revolution find themselves in after the former didn't report to camp, Cubo's big move (just days after he pledged his future to Houston) and a rumor rapid fire to keep you up to date on all the possible comings and goings around MLS. Plus, as always, a mailbag with plenty of meaty topics from listeners!

The floodgates have opened. MLS news is coming thick and fast as GMs, coaches and scouts work to build opening day rosters that will get them into the playoffs. The guys start with the LA Galaxy, who traded for Perry Kitchen and are quietly having a sneaky solid offseason. Plus, what's Ola Kamara worth on the MLS trade market? How about Lee Nguyen, who says he wants out of New England?

Play your kids! That's a refrain you hear often on ETR. Andrew, Matt and Ben dig into all the South American prospects who've joined the league this winter -- no, not Barco, yet -- and wonder what it all means for Homegrowns and other young domestic players.

Finally, more drama for the Canadian national team as Octavio Zambrano lasts just 10 months as the head coach of the men's national team. His replacement? Well, let's just say you'll want Daniel Squizzato's explanation for why John Herdman, previously the women's coach, is switching roles.

Dave Sarachan named 30 players (most of them under the age of 24 and 28 of 30 from MLS) to the US national team's January camp. The guys give their takes and look ahead to 2022 before getting to the big news of the day. That, of course, would be Jonathan Gonzalez's decision to file a one-time switch to play for Mexico.


After the break, #BarcoWatch continues, David Ousted finds a new home and The Research Baer is fired up.

The calendar isn't the only thing changing as Matt Doyle breaks big news to start the first ExtraTime Radio of 2018. Once that's out of the way, the guys make resolutions for all 23 MLS teams (welcome, LAFC), plus the USMNT and CanMNT.

Can Toronto make history in CCL? Which teams should play their kids? Who needs to make a splash (or a sale) in the transfer market? What big news did you miss while you spend two weeks in your sweatpants? In the mailbag, a bold Baerantee and listener wishes for the New Year.
