Episode 326 - The AFTN Soccer Show (New Squad Attacking Formation - Vancouver v Minnesota, MLS Week In Review, Abuse In Football)
The new MLS season is underway. Vancouver Whitecaps maybe started it somewhat underwhelmingly with a 3-2 loss at home to Minnesota United, but there's a long road ahead.
We pick over the bones of that opening day defeat and hear from both head coaches, Vancouver's Marc Dos Santos and Minnesota's Adrian Heath.
We also delve into some of the aspects of what went good and what went wrong for the Whitecaps and look at some individual player's performances and some needs in the squad. Will there be changes in store for next week's trip to Real Salt Lake?
Plus we look at the weekend's action in the MLS Western Conference, chat about the Canadian Premier League news of the week, have a discussion about abuse in football following Ciara McCormack's unsettling blog post last week, and Helen Love are back in this week's Wavelength section.
