ExtraTime Radio (general)

Vancouver and Portland are locked in a Cascadian battle for a playoff spot. First the guys break down who they think will make it to the big show, then 'Caps head coach Carl Robinson joins the show to discuss scoreboard watching, big-money DPs, Omar Salgado's situation and USL PRO. By the sounds of it, fans in British Columbia could see an offseason influx of talent.

The race in the Eastern Conference is no less compelling, in fact it's downright brutal. See why plenty hinges on Friday's DC-SKC clash. And of course the guys have to talk Landon Donovan after his revealing interview with Grant Wahl. What might his Jeter moment be? Is he a viable MVP candidate? And what's next?

Last, but certainly not least, listeners take Simon to task for his MLS snobery, wonder why PK misses matter so much and the guys choose MLS' best MC.

David gets the show started by coming through in the clutch, then the guys turn to the business at hand: playoff races that are only going to heat up from here on out. How will the Portland Timbers deal without their captain Will Johnson, who is set to miss six months? Should Sporting KC be afraid of the Revs? Is Vancouver finally making good on their promise? Best team in MLS? Some say Seattle. Some say LA.

Either way, Andrew says LD is breaking the assist record sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, in USL PRO, the title has already been won. We promised Preki, and we delivered. The Sacramento Republic FC coach talks championship celebrations, Toronto FC, and his own future in a wide-ranging interview. See how close he thinks his current squad is to competing in MLS.

Last, but certainly not least, the mailbag is back, with listeners demanding the ScoreBorg, inquiring about tiebreakers and wondering about the state of the academy system.

He's headed to Tottenham, he could end the season with a Seattle treble and now DeAndre Yedlin is No. 1 in MLSsoccer.com's 24 Under 24 series. Things are good, and Yedlin joins the guys to talk Super Smash Brothers (again?), Latvian passports, his least favorite thing about fame and plays some word association as well.

While Seattle have clinched their playoff spot, Toronto FC are still on the outside looking in. It's Greg Vanney's job to get them there, and he'll soon have Jermain Defoe back for the chase. Meanwhile, it seems Michael Bradley's role has changed, and Toronto may make some news on the USL PRO front soon.

Last, but certainly not least, USL PRO president Tim Holt is on to talk what appears to be a very bright future in the lower divisions. He says there could be as many as four to six additional MLS standalone sides in his league next season. Find out who by taking a listen!
