Extratime: Playoff preview, Decision Day reaction, goal king Carlos Vela, and coaching change in Orlando

Decision Day presented by AT&T has come and gone and now the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs bracket is set! David, Doyle, Bobby and Charlie get together to talk about all the action around the league. But most importantly playoff preview time has started. Can the Timbers win on the road at RSL with Valeri a question mark? Do the young guns in Dallas have enough to threaten Seattle? Can Minnesota win their first MLS playoff game at home over the Galaxy’s stars?

In the East it was a limp to the finish line for a number of teams but we have some delicious postseason matchups. Toronto FC will host their first playoff game since 2017 MLS Cup against Wayne Rooney and D.C. United, Philadelphia look for their first playoff victory over rival New York Red Bulls and a Decision Day rematch between Atlanta United and the New England Revolution. 

The guys break all this down, plus postmortem San Jose’s 2019 season, Orlando City parting ways with James O’Connor and so much more.
