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

Andrew, Dave and Bobby gather in Brooklyn to mourn the passing of 2018 midweek MLS, ponder Wayne Rooney and D.C. United's place in the MVP and Eastern Conference hierarchy, jump on the Gianluca Busio hype train as the Sporting KC teenager made history (and helped deliver a huge result) and Orlando City lead the way in a season of widespread defensive ineptitude.

 

Plus, everything at stake on Sunday as the Eastern and Western Conference go back to back with playoff places, seeding, the Supporters' Shield and individual awards on the line as well as an attempt to define the difference between a good regular season team and a playoff threat. In the mailbag, thoughts on the US national team post international break.
