ExtraTime Radio: RSL's Kyle Beckerman on Landon Donovan, his "nasty" feet and trash talk
LD Calls Time
The announcement was a bit out of the blue, but Landon Donovan's time is coming to an end all the same. With Simon on vacation somewhere, David and Andrew do their best to honor MLS and US Soccer's all-time greatest player in wake of his impending retirement. Fittingly, Donovan also scored the game-winner in Wednesday's AT&T MLS All-Star game. Bayern Munich's Pep Guardiola didn't exactly take it well. Why you mad, bro?
After taking a look at the smoke and fire during the summer transfer window, Real Salt Lake midfielder Kyle Beckerman joins the guys to reminisce about his old friend in LA, explain why head coach Jeff Cassar says his feet are so nasty and dole out trash talking advice. Learn from the master, you silly rook.
