MLS Week 2 is in the books, and the guys dig into all the big storylines. Matt says the biggest is rampant LAFC, whose dominating performance in Utah prompted Mike Petke to take the blame for Real Salt Lake's collective failure. David goes with the young Red Bulls, who made nine changes to the team that knocked off Club Tijuana on the road and didn't miss a beat working over the Timbers. Andrew goes with Five Stripe Nation, 72,035 of which showed to watch Atlanta United get back on track.
Also in this episode ... the rest of the headlines from the weekend, MLSsoccer.com national writer Sam Stejskal rounds up the news from around the league, handicapping the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal second legs and a laugh-filled mailbag highlighted by ExtraTime Bingo!
