Extratime announces the biggest signing in the podcast’s history! Susannah Collins arrives on a Designated Player deal, bringing with her a fly wardrobe and a voice of reason. The latter is especially useful as the crew digs into a painful week of Concacaf Champions League results that saw #CCLFever break around MLS. Four games, four losses. What does it all mean? What’s wrong with Atlanta United? Is this classic Red Bulls? Can Sporting KC carry the torch? For now, Liga MX’s hegemony remains intact.
Also in this episode, an interview with Nashville SC head coach Gary Smith (38:42), details on MLS transfer dealings in the works from MLSsoccer.com national writer Sam Stejskal, a Week 2 preview and a laugh-out-loud Mailbag, including a logo explains for ETR's new look.
