After more than two weeks, the Audi 2016 MLS Cup Playoffs are back with a vengeance. It's a breath of fresh air for Andrew, David and Matt, who've been twiddling their thumbs waiting for Montreal, Toronto, Seattle and Colorado to get down to business in the Conference Championships. Kurt Larson of the Toronto Sun calls in to talk TFC ahead of the big game at Olympic Stadium, one expected to draw more than 60,000 fans, then Matt Pentz of the Seattle Times gives the latest on the Sounders' injury situation. In between, the guys break it down tactically before ending with predictions. Hint: goals are expected.

Just as the guys were getting ready to run through some MLS news and notes, U.S. Soccer announced that Jurgen Klinsmann had been dismissed from his post as USMNT head coach and technical director. Bruce Arena, according to various reports, is the favorite to take over as the Americans look to bounce back from two straight defeats to open the Hexagonal. What do the guys think about this massive development? You'll have to listen to find out.

In the mailbag, listeners take to Twitter to chime in on the news that the USMNT will have a new head coach.
