Meet Mr. Jones
You've listened to the press conference and watched all the sit-down interviews. Now ExtraTime Radio brings you the other side of new MLS and New England Revolution star Jermaine Jones you don't know. He's a big personality and in just a few months stateside, he's already on a first-name basis with Hollywood's stars. And it's all normal to him.
Jones is eager to get on the field with the Revolution and he reveals just how ready he is for a potential debut in Toronto on Saturday. He explains why Jurgen Klinsmann convinced him to sign an MLS contract and what his plans are for the end of 2015, when his big-money deal expires. And if you follow him on Instagram and always wanted to dress like Jones, he'll tell you where to shop.
But the rest of the league isn't waiting around for Jones. The LA Galaxy sent a clear message that they might very well get Landon Donovan his final MLS Cup with a trouncing of DC. Are they the best in the league? Who's in pole position for the Supporters' Shield now? We break down that race, the very best Labor Day weekend matches and the surprising Euro-based US roster unveiled by Jurgen Klinsmann.
