Episode 145 – The AFTN Podcast – “There’s Still Time” (Young Canadians with guests Fraser Aird, Ben McKendry and Marco Carducci)

David Bowie sang about “Young Americans”. We were hoping to find a cover version with someone singing about “Young Canadians” instead for this podcast. We couldn’t find that, so you’ll have to make do with interviews with three of Vancouver Whitecaps young Canadian stars.

We have an extended chat with new signing Fraser Aird who’s looking to establish himself as a first team regular after his loan move from Rangers? Is he keen to hang around long term, what was behind his decision to come here and what might it mean for his Canadian national team hopes? All this and a lot more discussed in his first media conference call.

We also have exclusive interviews with two Whitecaps Residency alumni, who are hoping to see first team minutes this season, midfielder Ben McKendry and goalkeeper Marco Carducci.

It was a tough season last year for both players, for differing factors, but both are back, ready and raring to go and show Carl Robinson they deserve to be part of his long term plans.

We also look at the imminent arrival of Blas PĂ©rez. What will it mean to the team, their goalscoring and their disciplinary record? Will the fans accept the horned striker? And there’s still time to cast our fashionista eyes over the new Whitecaps away kit.
