ExtraTime Radio: Can MLS get over the hump in the CONCACAF Champions League? | 2016 MLS preview, Part 1

An epidemic of #CCLfever gives MLS fans chills and aches after the opening legs of the MLS-Liga MX CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals. But hope is not yet lost! Strong performances from D.C. United and Real Salt Lake in Mexico leave them within touching distance ahead of the home legs, but will they do it? Can they? On the flip side, Seattle and LA both drew at home. What must they focus on in the second leg to make history? Plus, the guys break down Jordan Morris's professional debut, we finally see what the big-name Galaxy have in store and whether Yura Movsisyan is the big-time goalscorer Real Salt Lake hope he’ll be.

In the second segment, it is finally time to gear up for the 2016 season! With all 20 clubs to preview, the guys take their first crack at the bunch. Chicago, Philly, New York City FC, RSL and Houston are up first. What will Gilberto do in a full season for the Fire? How will NYCFC's three stars fit together? Can a healthy Joao Plata get RSL back in the playoffs? You’ll get four fast-and-furious minutes on all six, with more to come.

It’s a curtailed mailbag as Andrew channel’s Herm Edwards’ time-management skills. The CCL anthem has brother and sister songs elsewhere, including perhaps the ultimate N64 theme song.
