Playoffs Are Coming...

A Supporters' Shield has been decided. The AT&T MLS Playoffs are set. The Knockout Round looms. ExtraTime Radio has everything you need to know, including news that Chivas USA is ceasing operations with a new team set to begin play in Los Angeles in 2017.

It all starts Wednesday, when Vancouver visit Dallas, and there are some big questions for the 'Caps' Carl Robinson. First, who starts at right back? Second, can the Canadians slow down FC Dallas' set-piece barrage? The guys all agree on a prediction, is that bad news?

The Eastern Conference is a rematch of Sunday night's regular-season finale. The New York Red Bulls are rolling on the back of Bradley Wright-Phillips, who tied the MLS single season scoring record against Kansas City. Sporting KC, meanwhile, are tired. Dog tired. Manager Peter Vermes joins the guys to talk shop, his trip home to New Jersey and offseason movement.

ExtraTime Radio Book Club:

If you thought you knew everything there was to know about the 2014 World Cup, think again. Author James Montague dug up the stories you likely never heard about in the lead-up to Brazil 2014 in "Thirty-One Nil." We spoke to Montague about his adventures around the world and if you haven't yet ordered the book, you'll likely be tempted to after listening to our special Book Club edition.

Meanwhile, get started on the book club's next selection: The Numbers Game by Chris Anderson and David Sally (see left).
