ExtraTime Radio: Chris Wondolowski (San Jose), Jonathan Bornstein (Queretaro)
Itâ€™s a specialÂ TuesdayÂ show, and that means youâ€™re in for a treat. Chris Wondolowski joins the guys in the first segment, fresh off joining the MLS Century Club. But what would he have done had he hung up his boots like one college coach suggested? When did he figure it out in MLS and why? And which message from his fellow 100-goal scorers made his heart swell with pride?In the second segment, the guys talk MLS before chatting with a special guest from south of the border. Thatâ€™d be Jonathan Bornstein, who scored the biggest goal in Queretaroâ€™s history to book a spot in the LigaMX final. Hear the story straight from Jonny B, as he discusses impending fatherhood, dedicating the goal to his own dad and Ronaldinhoâ€™s special tribute.Finally, in the mailbag, Davidâ€™s employment status is clarified. Should he stay or should he go? Plus, which ETR mailbag regular bumped into Simon at Red Bull Arena?

ExtraTime Radio: Perry Kitchen (DC United), Brian Sciaretta (ASN)
Wait, Steven Gerrard said what?! Less pressure in MLS? Hit play to see what the guys thought of the soon-to-be Galaxy star's comments as he prepares to say goodbye to the only club he's ever known. Then stick around for a chat with D.C. United midfielder Perry Kitchen, who has a big event off the field this week, is fielding interest from Europe and has a US national team career to think about. Oh, and what's he think about all this "luck" talk when it comes to D.C. United and their first-place position?In the second segment, MLS Week 11 takes center stage. Viernes de Futbol is huge this week. Can NYCFC finally rebound? Can the Red Bulls slow down Fabian Castillo, Mauro Diaz and FC Dallas?Â SaturdayÂ is just as good, with a Cascadia battle pitting Vancouver and Seattle and New England hoping to heap more misery on Toronto FC. The guys also welcome friend of the show Brian Sciaretta on to talk Gedion Zelalem and all the moving and shaking from Americans in Europe.In the mailbag, the "Farby" debate heads in a new direction, listeners pull the homer card and Simon is confronted by his alter egos: Dr. Simon and Mr. Borg.

ExtraTime Radio: Third Rail President Chance Michaels (NYCFC), Kristy Olychick (Vancouver Bird Flipper)
Andrew, Simon, and David preview the weekend with the people that matter most: the fans! Third Rail president Chance Michaels calls in from work to serenade Simon with some NYCFC chants and explain whatâ€™s on tap for Sunday. The guys also break down the match vs. New England, and give their takes on Portland and Orlandoâ€™s center-forward conundrums. Not to be outdone by their Eastern Conference brethren, a member of Vancouver Whitecaps supporters group â€œThe Southsidersâ€ stops by to preview their matchup. But itâ€™s not just any member, itâ€™s Kristy Olychick, who flipped the bird in Jozy Altidoreâ€™s face last weekend, a gesture felt around MLS. The guys finish up by breaking down the rest of the weekendâ€™s games, then debate who got the toughest Gold Cup group. In the mailbag, the legal battle begins as an ETR fan/attorney chimes in about Simonâ€™s copyright claim to the â€œScoreBorgâ€ (not like itâ€™s every going to happen anyway). Finally, the guys consider what kind of ETR memorabilia might take the marketplace by storm.
