Extratime: Can Atlanta United cope without Josef Martinez? Plus Chicharito, Nashville and Miami debuts

MLS is back, and the guys waste no time diving into Week 1! First, the bad news, Josef Martinez tore his ACL against Nashville. Why it's a gut punch across the board, not just for Atlanta United, and what's next for the Five Stripes and their talismanic striker. Then around the table for the big winners of Week 1 — Rapids, "Hot Boy" Kevin Molino, Nashville SC's home opener and Lucas Zelarayan and the Crew -- and an evaluation of Chicharito's MLS and Galaxy debut.

Also in this show ... Carlos Vela chips Inter Miami to an L in front of Beckham's posse, our Adrian Heath Gaffer of the Week is Thierry Henry and which teams should be at least a little bit concerned after Week 1.

Major League Soccer's long-running podcast Extratime is now available on YouTube.
