Episode 275 – The AFTN Soccer Show (System Addict with guests Stefan Marinovic, Simon Colyn, and Marco Carducci)
Vancouver Whitecaps head into their bye week (call it what it is) unbeaten in six and starting to find some attacking form. The defence is still looking a bit dodgy and they still struggle at times when they have a man advantage, but there’s a lot more optimistic feel around the place than it was perhaps a month ago.
We look back at the ‘Caps five star win over Orlando on Saturday – the highs, the lows, and how some of the players are shaping up at this near midway point of the season. We also hear postgame comments from both coaches, Orlando’s Jason Kreis and Vancouver’s Carl Robinson.
We have three interviews for you this week. First up, the ‘Caps Kiwi keeper Stefan Marinovic talks about his injury, rehab, and when he expects to be back in the starting line-up. Then we catch up with Vancouver’s latest homegrown signing, Simon Colyn, as we talk about his first professional contract, the Canadian championship, and more.
We also have more Canadian Premier League chat for you this week as we look at the addition of teams in Winnipeg and Edmonton, and we chat with former Whitecap Marco Carducci about his hopes for the league and playing for his hometown club in Calgary.
All this plus a review of what happened in the MLS Western conference this week, Wavelength, BC Soccerweb headlines, and more.
