Extratime

Andrew Wiebe is getting a much deserved rest day so we turn to the strike partnership of David Gass and Charlie Davies to guide us through the show. The guys do their best to break down the midweek CCL madness and figure out which MLS teams have the best shot to advance to the semifinals. Then we get you ready for the big games of the weekend, including an interview with Nashville SC’s Randall Leal ahead of Sunday’s matchup with Inter Miami. After that, we take a skip across the pond to discuss Jesse Marsch being named RB Leipzig manager and the latest developments in the Daryl Dike loan saga.

Club & Country driven by Continental Tire is back! First up, Charlie Davies walks you through his USMNT No. 9 depth chart. Daryl Dike is No. 1 – Chuck D says give him the nod in a must-win game – but who else makes up the top five and where does Jozy stand? Good vibes (finally) at Chelsea for Christian Pulisic, but he hasn’t had the best season for an American in Europe. Total Soccer Show’s Taylor Rockwell stops by to debate the best of the best for Yanks abroad. What about Canada, you say? Toronto FC’s Richie Laryea calls in and David Gass takes a stab at John Herdman’s best XI.

We’ve already got off-the-rails MLS and it’s only Week 2! Chicharito dominates the headlines for a second straight week after bagging a hat trick against the Red Bulls.

In the Midwest, David Ochoa sows the seeds of a real rivalry with Minnesota after booting the ball into the supporters’ section. The moment, the scuffle, the jab from Adrian Heath, is anyone in the wrong here? Or is it all just fun? We also dive in on Cade Cowell’s breakout performance, Austin FC’s first-ever win, and FC Cincinnati’s blowout loss. Listen and enjoy!

Are you ready for MLS Week 2? Charlie is back to help Andrew and David dig into the three-day soccer weekend, including an interview with Red Bulls manager Gerhard Struber (why MLS, Amaya, Klimala, MLS Cup aspirations). First up, Peter Vermes hits a major MLS milestone as Sporting host Orlando City, sans Pato. Oscar Pareja has a tough decision up top, and Alan Pulido and Johhny Russell would change the level for Sporting. On Saturday, Carlos Vela may or may not be back when LAFC host the Seattle Sounders, what does that mean? After Yeimar sat out the opener – and Brian Schmetzer addressed it – Charlie explains how he approached DNPs and what Schmetz’s quote might have meant. Plus, how FC Dallas is setting up under Luchi, ESPN+ games of the weekend (Philly-Inter Miami) and more in the Mailbag.
