Signing Brazillian wonderkids is just what MLS teams do now. Or at least It seems that way after NYCFC made a huge splash by signing 18-year-old Talles Magno. David Gass and Charlie Davies break down what the signing says about MLS’ current place in the global transfer market, and how the exciting young forward will help NYCFC this season.
Then, Timbers midfielder Eryk Williamson stops by to tell us whether it’s trophy or bust for Portland this year, and to let us know if he’s taken anything a little bit personally in the last week.
We finish off the show with a full-scale weekend preview including the marquee Sunday matchup between Seattle and Atlanta, our ESPN+ games of the week, our fantasy picks, and the mailbag.
