Episode 218 – The AFTN Soccer Show (The Real Deal? with guests Tony Tchani and Jonathan Tannenwald)
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? The Whitecaps have won again. And they’re in third place just off the lead.
Are they real deal? Can they sustain this good run of form to claim a first ever Western Conference title? They got a four game home stand off to a great start against Real Salt Lake. We look back at all the ins and outs, and highs and lows, from the 3-2 win and look ahead to the next two matches against Minnesota and Columbus.
Our feature interview this week is with a man who knows Columbus very well, midfielder Tony Tchani, plus we’re joined on the phone by Philly.com reporter Jonathan Tannenwald and AFTN writer Chris Corrigan to look at all things MLS and Whitecaps.
All this, plus we talk ice cream with Robert Earnshaw, find out if Carl Valentine fancies a chocolate digestive, and The Business return for this week’s Wavelength section.

In an ironic twist, the show being on earlier this week is what prevented me from listening to it live. haha
Anyway, I’ve never had so many people around me in the Southsiders section this past weekend that I didn’t recognize. Large blocks of them seemed to have little interest in participating in anything, including watching what was a fairly entertaining game.
Also glad to hear you guys recognize how poor Harvey was on that second goal. On first glace I just thought Shea had lost his man, but on second viewing (while that is still true) it’s obvious that Harvey wandered so far out of position that the goal is very much his fault.
