Midweek cup games mean midweek insanity. First, the guys look north to Toronto FC's last-gasp Amway Canadian Championship winner. South of the border, the US Open Cup Round of 16 came and went and naturally there were all sorts of bizarre highlights, crazy plays and coaches … throwing balls? The guys look back at everything that happened then look forward to a loaded quarterfinal schedule.

In the second segment, attention shifts to MLS ahead of an awesome weekend that includes four straight days of league action then dive into the #FakeMLSTrades quagmire. The next installment of the #NYDerby is on Sunday (Noon, ESPN). Can New York City FC finally earn some respect in the five boroughs? And how will Poku's transfer affect the club? The guys also look at your dream transfers for MLS, and Doyle has some names who could maybe stay in the states after Copa America Centenario.

It’s expansion time in the mailbag. Nashville will join USL in 2018 and owner/investor Chris Redhage, who played in the league himself, checks in from the Music City where his group is on the verge of announcing the league’s newest franchise, one with plenty of ambition.
