Vancouver Whitecaps must be wishing that the World Cup “break” was still going on. I know we do!
Two defeats in two matches against two lowly teams has derailed all the good work done before the break and put the Whitecaps playoff hopes very much in trouble as they slip further behind in the points per game standings.
We look back at Vancouver’s Canada Day defeat at home to Colorado Rapids. What went wrong? How much of it was on the ‘Caps and how much was down to the play of the visitors? And where does the team go from here? We also hear from both head coaches, Colorado’s Anthony Hudson and Vancouver’s Carl Robinson, plus we speak with Tim Howard, who had a lot to say about Vancouver fans and MLS security after the game.
We also look back at what came out of the Whitecaps Town Hall meeting midweek and chat about a fantastic week of World Cup action and what lies ahead. Plus our exclusive chat with Kendall Waston upon his return from Russia after an eventful tournament with Costa Rica. Plus we take great joy at wallowing in Zach’s German gloom and play one of the worst World Cup songs of all time, and that’s saying something!
We also bring you a double dose of Wavelength this week featuring Bell and Sebastian and Halftime Oranges.
