Extratime: Deep dive on MLS Wk 6 + Miguel Ibarra on Allianz Field effect

Listen to the latest episode:

In this episode, Matt and Bobby are reunited on Extratime. You know what that means! We’re going DEEP into MLS Week 6. Is LAFC the new ATLUTD? And could Diego Rossi be the next big player sale? On the DC side, Manchester United are scouting Lucho Acosta! In Vancouver, the fans came out for Zlatan, and ‘Caps midfielder Felipe was not happy about it. Was the Brazilian right to be peeved? Plus, Tommy Thompson and San Jose back up their talk, Nani rescues Orlando and the Crew are ever so quietly at the top of the East.

In the second segment, Minnesota United and US men’s national team midfielder Miguel Ibarra calls in to explain how winning changes a club, what it’s like to be a Twin Cities cult hero, what the Allianz Field effect will be like and where the Wonderwall tradition came from. Also, what happened to Sporting KC in Monterrey and how should Peter Vermes approach the second leg?

In the mailbag, the Red Bulls face a conundrum. To press or not to press? That is the question, and Matt and Bobby disagree about the answer.

Major League Soccer's long-running podcast Extratime is now available on YouTube, every Monday and Thursday at 5 pm ET.
