ExtraTime Radio (general)

Historic. There's no other way to describe MLS's week in the Concacaf Champions League. #CCLFever peaked on Tuesday with Toronto FC and the New York Red Bulls victories over Liga MX, then broke Wednesday as Chivas casually disposed of a beat-up Sounders side. What does it all mean? Has MLS turned the corner against their southern neighbors? What now in the semis, given the free space (disappointment) is still open? ESPN's Herculez Gomez joins the guys to share his infinite Concacaf wisdom.

Also in this episode ... MLSsoccer.com national writer Paul Tenorio on Darwin Quintero and Minnesota United and the TAM effect in MLS, a weekend preview featuring the clubs you said we never talk about and a rip-roaring mailbag featuring Dr. Seuss-inspired MLS rhymes!

MLS Week 2 is in the books, and the guys dig into all the big storylines. Matt says the biggest is rampant LAFC, whose dominating performance in Utah prompted Mike Petke to take the blame for Real Salt Lake's collective failure. David goes with the young Red Bulls, who made nine changes to the team that knocked off Club Tijuana on the road and didn't miss a beat working over the Timbers. Andrew goes with Five Stripe Nation, 72,035 of which showed to watch Atlanta United get back on track.


Also in this episode ... the rest of the headlines from the weekend, MLSsoccer.com national writer Sam Stejskal rounds up the news from around the league, handicapping the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal second legs and a laugh-filled mailbag highlighted by ExtraTime Bingo!

There's nothing that gets the ExtraTime Radio guys as riled up as the CONCACAF Champions League. So when MLS teams went three for three against Liga MX in quarterfinal first legs, you knew Thursday's episode was going to be epic. Still, the big question after Toronto FC, Seattle and the Red Bulls made history remains unanswered: Is a marker of things to come or simply a flash in the pan before the usual second-leg disappointment?


MLS is back for Week 2 as well and MLSsoccer.com national writer Paul Tenorio jumps on to talk trade rumors in New England, moving and shaking (for a No. 6) in ATL, the Chicago Fire's 2018 season and what he expects from the remainder of the transfer window. Then the guys preview all the games and dig into the mailbag! Don't forget to subscribe below to have the podcast delivered to you every single week.
