We wouldn't dream of leaving you hanging during the holidays, so ETR set about creating four shows to get everyone through the end of 2014.

Dec. 22: Referees (PRO's GM Peter Walton and Chris Penso)

Dec. 25: Americans Abroad (Alejandro Bedoya, Herediano owner David Patey, Kabul Premier League vet NicholasPugliese)

Dec. 29: Expansion (Atlanta MLS president Darren Eales, LAFC president and co-owner Tom Penn)

Jan. 1: ETR Book Club (The Numbers Game with author David Sally)

In this episode, the guys talk to MLS Atlanta president and former Tottenham Hotspur executive Darren Eales about his time in college soccer, experience in the EPL, arrival in MLS and the league's future in the South.

Atlanta will be joined by LAFC in 2017, and president and co-owner Tom Penn is already hard at work to make sure everything goes smoothly. First things first, a name, a logo and a stadium.

Finally, in a special expansion mailbag, Armchair Analyst Matt Doyle joins to respond to fan comments and questions.
