Episode 301 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Back To Basics with guests Craig Dalrymple, Stefan Marinovic, and Marvin Emnes)
The Carl Robinson era is over at Vancouver Whitecaps. He's certainly left an admirable legacy behind but it's time to get back to basics for the remainder of this season before the club heads into its most important offseason in their time in MLS.
We look back at Robbo's sacking, the timing of it, what it means for the future, and especially how it may play out for the rest of this season. We also sit down for a chat with new, interim head coach, and a man we've known well for a number of years now, Craig Dalrymple.
The dismissal of Robbo aside, there's still five games left to battle in this season, and while the playoffs may feel like a somewhat distant hope right now, they are at least still within touching distance and we chat with Stefan Marinovic about the mood of the group heading into them, facing Ibra and LA this weekend, and more.
One man who we may see down the stretch is the last player Robbo brought into the squad, Marvin Emnes. We chat with the Dutch winger about where his fitness levels are at, when we may see him, and if he sees a future for himself in Vancouver at a Robboless Whitecaps.
We go old school for this impromptu episode, recording it in our car! So the sound quality isn't up to our usual studio standard, but hopefully it won't take away from your enjoyment too much!
