The guys roll through their Top 5 ahead of Friday's MLS SuperDraft (streamed live at 11 am ET on MLSsoccer.com), but the main event is an 50-plus minute expansive interview with Bob Bradley on a range of soccer topics, including the state of MLS, issues with the national team, his soccer philosophy, Vela/Rossi at LAFC, and so much more.

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.

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.

Need some soccer talk to get you through 2017? Andrew sits down with AT&T Rookie of the Year Julian Gressel to talk Atlanta United and his unconventional path from Germany to Providence to the pros. Sporting KC backstop Tim Melia also stops by to explain why it took until now for him to become a game-changing 'keeper and what his future might hold (hint, GM).
