We’re pleased to announce that this month starts the official partnership of the AFTN Soccer Show and Radio Cascadia. The two shows have worked closely together these past seasons, but as we look to expand the listenership of both podcasts to wider audiences, AFTN Soccer Show episodes will now appear on the excellent Prost Amerika website, with Radio Cascadia episodes appearing here. Here’s the latest offering from the Radio Cascadia. Give it a listen below.
Four points from two matches in Texas leaves us with plenty to celebrate as we speak with Michael McColl of AFTN and Prost Amerika Portland editor Matt Hoffman about their clubs’ successes down south. A point in LA never hurts, either!
Whitecaps’ 4-0 result in Frisco draws considerable attention and we rate it among their most memorable matches in MLS so far. Our preview of their match in Colorado focuses on the question of consistency, as another performance like the one against Dallas will surely earn points against the struggling Rapids.
2-2 was nothing to scoff at for Portland, but between an odd offside decision and a questionable call on a free kick leading to Houston’s equalizer it’s no wonder fans were left feeling it was two points dropped. Hoffman deliberates on all of the contentious moments before we move on and discuss Timbers’ home match with LA this weekend. Also included: what’s behind Sebastian Blanco’s new-found production and blistering form?
Sounders had their own match against LA a weekend ago, and we elaborate on why it was a match no one could afford to lose. Attention then shifts to an inaugural meeting with Minnesota United, a tie near and dear to Andrew’s heart.
Undefeated weeks are happy weeks on Radio Cascadia, enjoy this one with us!
