ExtraTime Radio: The USMNT end their five-game slide as Gyasi Zardes shines | Dom Kinnear's homecoming

January camp is over, but that doesn't mean we're done talking about it. This time, though, the discussion centers around a 2-0 victory against Panama that saw Gyasi Zardes prove he belongs, Clint Dempsey do his thing and Michael Bradley notch an olimpico. What you really want to know is what Simon thinks of Miguel Ibarra's performance, and ETR's resident hot-take expert doesn't disappoint.

In the second segment, the spotlight turns to MLS, where injuries and signings stole the headlines on Monday. Why is Jermaine Jones having surgery? What's wrong with Eddie Johnson? Who is this centerback the Union just signed? Finally, San Jose boss Dominic Kinnear joins the guys to talk homecomings, DPs and Jurgen Klinsmann.

In the mailbag, listeners wonder if Simon soiled himself making noises on the last show, and the conversation, predictably, turns to jam's place in history.

EXTRAS:

MEET THE TEAM:

Andrew Wiebe is the host and producer of ExtraTime Radio and a new media editor for MLSsoccer.com. He previously covered Sporting KC, once scored an unintentional goal from midfield and tries to bring an analytical mind to the beautiful game. Weekend center back, history junkie and Jayhawk.

Simon Borg is a senior editor and on-air analyst for MLSsoccer.com, and the original creator of the "Kick Off" on MLSsoccer.com. He loves organic strawberry jam and once pushed a big kid into a puddle while playing soccer in Malta. And he would do it again right now.
