Episode 101 – The AFTN Podcast – “There’s Still Time” (Purple People Eaters with guests Sam Adekugbe and Cyle Larin)
In George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four” Room 101 was a torture chamber filled with prisoners’ fears and worst nightmares. You could imagine that a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin’ purple people eater that came out of the sky might be one of the inhabitants in there.
Yet, ironically, for episode 101 of “There’s Still Time”, the AFTN Soccer Podcast, we’re hoping that the Whitecaps become such purple people monsters, devouring Orlando City in MLS action on Saturday.
Fresh from their first win, and clean sheet, of the new MLS season, Vancouver head into Florida for the first time on MLS duty to face the Eastern Conference leaders. We look back on last weekend’s win over Chicago and ahead to the Orlando clash.
One of the standouts from the Chicago win, was Residency alumni Sam Adekugbe and we have a chat with the homegrown star about the match, the threat posed by Orlando, his battle with Jordan Harvey for the starters spot and what he’s learned from the veteran defender.
Setting up the Orlando match for us is another young Canadian, the number one pick in this year’s MLS SuperDraft, Orlando City striker Cyle Larin. Larin chats with us about that draft day experience, his time in Orlando so far, the challenges from moving up to the pros from the college game, this weekend’s match-up with Vancouver and the Canadian national team’s World Cup hopes.
We also hear from both coaches, Carl Robinson and Adrian Heath with their thoughts about the match and Robbo talks Robert Earnshaw, squad tinkering and the form of Pedro Morales.
All that and there’s still time for Carl Robinson’s Big Question.
