After a weekend of high drama, Vancouver Whitecaps showed that they’re still the daddy of the MLS Western Conference.
As the ‘Caps grabbed a dramatic stoppage time equaliser to salvage a point against Columbus Crew, Tony Tchani and Kekuta Manneh stole all the headlines. We look back at all the main talking points and highs and lows of the match and hear from both head coaches, Vancouver’s Carl Robinson and Columbus’ Gregg Berhalter
We also look at whether the Crew are dark horses for the MLS Cup and chat with Kekuta Manneh after scoring in his emotional return to Vancouver.
Our feature interview this week is with ‘Caps coach Carl Robinson. We sit down with Robbo for an in-depth chat to explore his psyche, what makes him tick, how he builds and plays his teams, and the rest of the season ahead, plus is it actually better to have had Yordy Reyna injured and now flying when it matters?
Plus we talk football with the legend that is actor Ray Winstone as we chat about Saturday’s charity match at BC Place, West Ham, the Whitecaps, MLS, and more.
All this and we preview next weekend’s Colorado Rapids game, find out if Stefan Marinovic fancies a chocolate digestive, and The Cockney Rejects make their first appearance in our Wavelength section.
