Episode 352 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Can We Play You Every Week? - Whitecaps win in Cincy, Tommy Wheeldon, Football Fortunes, MLS and Canadian club football chat) [NSFW]
They've only been and gone and done it. Vancouver Whitecaps won a match! Okay, so it wasn't pretty and it was against a shambles of a team, but a win is a win is a win and right now any small victories they can get should be grabbed with both hands.
We look at the main talking points coming out of the victory over FC Cincinnati and the big news in Whitecapsland and throughout MLS this week. From transfers to games to suspensions and failed drug tests, there's been a lot to chat about.
Keeping with Canadian club football, we chat with Cavalry FC head coach Tommy Wheeldon about their league season so far, what's made them the class of the CPL, and the need to keep it going to the championship game. Plus we look at what the future of club football in BC may look like.
We also delve into the world of football board games as we chat with Marty Neill, one of the men behind the reboot of the classic board/computer game hybrid Football Fortunes, and we reveal our plans for AFTN's new video channel.
All this plus Wavelength, BC Soccerweb headlines, and fun food segments with Max Crepeau, Felipe Martins, and Scott Sutter.
