Extratime: ESPN's Taylor Twellman on expansion, CCL failure, Lewandowski

Listen to the latest episode:

In this episode, former US national team striker Charlie Davies joins Wiebe and Doyle to take a hard look at MLS Week 7. First up, a goosebumps-inducing experience at Allianz Field as soccer in Minnesota opened the doors to its forever home. Is Bradley Wright-Phillips’ role evolving with the Red Bulls? What makes Sporting KC teenager Gianluca Busio so special? Is this the Ezequiel Barco ATLUTD paid $15 million for? Que golazo! Who gets more trophies: LAFC or Sounders?

In the second segment, ESPN’s Taylor Twellman joins the guys to bounce around MLS. Topics covered: St. Louis vs. Sacramento for the 28th team, the Twellman family legacy at Allianz Field, NYCFC’s winless campaign so far, CCL failure and solutions, Robert Lewandowski to MLS (!!!) and Jesse Marsch to Salzburg.

In the mailbag, MLS’s Game of Thrones equivalents, Houston Dynamo keep rolling and the top five stadiums in MLS.
