To Sell Or Not To Sell?
It's a very special Thursday in ETR land. You'll just have to listen to find out why. First, though, the guys take a shot at predicting the US Open Cup champion after the field was trimmed to four this week. Seattle Sounders are chasing another title, and general manager and part owner Adrian Hanauer joins the show to discuss USOC vs. MLS, DeAndre Yedlin's European prospects, the Supporters' Shield and Sigi Schmid's contract situation.
Meanwhile, Andrew is fascinated by the Chipotle Homegrown Game, more so certainly than the AT&T All-Star contest. Where do you stand? Plus, should Matt Besler stay or go and what's at stake for player, club and league? Don't miss more conjecture when it comes to DaMarcus Beasley's future and World Cup transfer dreams. Anything can happen, just let your imagination take over.
Last but not least, Simon reveals his hair-brained scheme to improve the MLS schedule. Crazy? Or crazy smart? You be the judge. Email us at ExtraTime@MLSsoccer.com or tweet us at @ExtraTimeRadio. And make sure you check out our West Coast brethren at March to the Match every Wednesday!
