Episode 170 - The AFTN Soccer Podcast (Ring out the old, bring in the new)
Ring out the old, bring in the new. Is there anyone who isn't glad to see the back of 2016? Happy and healthy New Year salutations to you all from all of us here at AFTN.
We bring in 2017 with our first podcast of the year, a round table discussion on the year that's been and the season to come.
Michael and Steve are joined by AFTN writer Jay Duke and Curva Collective's Zachary Meisenheimer to look back at Vancouver Whitecaps 2016 season. Not the happiest year to review we know but we look at what went wrong, some of the big talking points, and what can be learned and needs to be done to make the Whitecaps challengers this season.
Did the Whitecaps fail to recover from their bad start? Why did the impact signings not happen and what went wrong with the key players from the year before? Did the Voyageurs Cup loss affect the team? What will Seattle's win mean for Vancouver, if anything? Is MLS success just now all down to money? And if the 'Caps get off to a bad start, how safe is Carl Robinson's job?
We discuss all these things and a lot more. There's a lot of New Year chat to be had, so have a listen.
