Episode 344 - The AFTN Soccer Show (It's Always The Mantaray - Vancouver v NYRB and Dallas, Callum Montgomery, Alejandro Bedoya, MLS and CPL chat)
Another busy week for Vancouver Whitecaps is in the history books. Lots of travel, lots of goals, and a four point haul from two matches was the end result and we look back at it all in this week's show.
We delve into the good, the bad, and the ugly from the draw at New York Red Bulls and the home win against FC Dallas. Some good results but there's still a lot of concerns around the team's passing, creativity, and the amount of shots they're giving up, not to mention the mounting injuries as TFC head to town on Friday.
We round-up what's been a busy week around MLS, look at one of the big talking points around the league this season - travel and charter flights - and bring you some thoughts on that from Philadelphia Union's Alejandro Bedoya.
We also chat with Dallas' Nanaimo born draft pick Callum Montgomery about the difficulties of integrating young players into the current 'Caps team, talk CPL and USL League 2, continue our 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl celebrations, and Ed Banger is in our Wavelength section.
