It’s December, it’s the offseason, so that can only mean one thing – AFTN’s annual pre Christmas “State of the Whitecaps” chat with ‘Caps coach Carl Robinson.
As always, Robbo is very open and honest with us about the season past and what lies ahead for 2016 and beyond.
How busy will the ‘Caps be in the transfer market this offseason and where is Robbo looking to strengthen? How will the new TAM be used and will this see at least one more DP come to Vancouver? Where will the goals come from next year?
We cover all this and a lot more in our half hour chat, as we talk tactics and formations, the value of MLS experience, the complexities of moving players within the league, developmental pathways and find out the latest on David Ousted, Cristian Techera, Callum Irving and some other titbits.
And we also ask the big question – what would it take to tempt Robbo away from the Whitecaps right now?
As an added extra this year, we also have a chat with WFC2 head coach Alan Koch about what he’s learned from the club’s first USL season, preparations for year two, and the upcoming MLS SuperDraft.
