Episode 290 - The AFTN Soccer Show (A Storm In A V Cup - TFC postgame and Timbers preview show)
Vancouver Whitecaps' cups runneth over right now. Not only are they right in the middle of a tantalizingly balance Voyageurs Cup final with Toronto FC, but there's the small matter of a Cascadia Cup game down in Portland on Saturday.
Joe and Nick look back at the night that was that Canadian Championship first leg. The highs, the lows, the even lower still. It was an evening of goals, stupid defending, and a referee taking centre stage. Oh Canada indeed.
Then they turn their attention to Saturday's match in Portland. The Timbers are unbeaten in 15, looking to set a club record, and facing a Whitecaps team that are frankly knackered. It's going to be tough but is this the kind of game that Vancouver will shine in and surprise? Or is a derby day calamity awaiting those of us making the long trip down the I-5?
Have a listen!
