ExtraTime Radio: The next big Homegrown star? They're on display at GA Cup

ExtraTime Radio Podcast

LISTEN: Get ready for a heaping helping of MLS on Friday and Saturday, leaving you free to hunt for eggs or do absolutely nothing on Sunday. Matt and Andrew round up everything going on around the league, then Dave files a report from the GA Cup in Frisco, where the next crop of Homegrown stars are on display. As always, listeners get a little wacky on the Hot-Take Hotline. Subscribe so you don't miss a show!

Dave is down at GA Cup, where the best youth players in the country are battling international competition -- we're talking the likes of Real Madrid, who FC Dallas just happened to knock off -- for bragging rights. He sits down with MLS Technical Director of Player Youth & Development Fred Lipka and Atlanta United academy director Tony Annan to discuss how the US and Canada are trying to produce the next big star from the ground up.

That leaves Andrew and Matt to tackle MLS Week 7 alone. Are Gyasi Zardes and Giovani dos Santos primed to explode? Are the Union in a tailspin? Should Pirlo ride the bench? Why is Bobby Boswell so important to D.C. United's success? Plus, your MLS LIVE game of the week goes down in Houston, and Timbers troll is gonna troll.

Speaking of trolls, the Hot-Take Hotline is a hit, and you won't want to miss the latest crop of voicemails as listeners offer up a new jingle, call for some Quakes love, wonder what's up with Didier Drogba's new gig in the desert and demand an apology. What for? You'll have to listen to find out...

Want to be a part of the show? Call the Hot-Take Hotline at 401-206-0MLS to leave a voicemail (keep it short and sweet and avoid colorful language) that could appear on ExtraTime Radio!
