ExtraTime Radio: Winner and losers from USMNT camp + New DP forwards

Listen to the latest episode:

Preseason rolls on, with all the predictably bizarre headlines and overreactions. Andrew, Bobby and Dave sit down in the Green Room to break down a pair of Designated Player forwards signed by NYCFC and Real Salt Lake. Will Alexandru Mitrita be worth the reported $9 million price tag? Who is Sam Johnson, the Liberian forward headed to Utah from Norway's Valerenga?

Then, after Gregg Berhalter's first US national team camp closes with another win, the guys identity the winners, the potential starters and parse the details to figure out what was noise and what was important. Plus, Tyler Adams has hearts aflutter in Germany, and Alphonso Davies got the call for Bayern Munich.

Also in this episode: Red Bulls head coach Chris Armas on style, identity and how they mesh in New York, Anthony Hudson explains the Rapids rebuild, North American soccer bucket list in the mailbag.
