Rapids Podcast: Champions League success a must for MLS?

Further failings a concern, amid brighter news for the USMNT

There's much for Rapids Podcast hosts David Lindholm and Richard Fleming to talk about this week, as the team prepares for their first home game of the season, against the Portland Timbers on Saturday (March 22, TICKETS),

CONCACAF Champions League hit the headlines, with further failure for MLS teams - among them, LA Galaxy bowing out to Club Tijuana (above). The podcast hears from Drew Moor on where MLS is in its bid to break through, while it also emerged this week that a Bayern Munich teenager was committing his senior international future to the USA. Edson Buddle takes that topic, plus the retirement of Steve Cherundolo.

And the Rapids Podcast is not the same these days without witterings from Fleming on which figure from the world of soccer is worthy of the title 'Numpty of the Week'.
