Episode 195 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Football's Coming Home - Whitecaps v Sporting KC preview show)
Football's coming home! Well Vancouver Whitecaps are anyway.
After a tough four game road stretch, the 'Caps will be back at BC Place next weekend, returning with six points from 12, a new formation, and a lot more promise than how things were looking at the start of April. They may have lost on Friday night to Houston, but it was a good performance and they should be heading home now with a bit of a spring in their step. And they need to be, as there's a lot of hard work ahead for them if they are to stay in the playoff places.
We look ahead to Saturday's game against the Western Conference leading Sporting Kansas City. Will there be a different formation? Who will come in and drop out? And will KC field a weaker team after their midweek exploits at home to Seattle? We get some clues as we hear from KC head coach Peter Vermes, defender Ike Opara, and Wednesday's hat-trick hero Gerso Fernandes
We also hear from WFC2 centre back Francis de Vries about his favourite books and chat with TSS Rovers head coach Colin Elmes about their start to their first PDL season.
