In been a busy week in Whitecapsland. Has Alphonso Davies played his last match as a ‘Cap? How will the team spend their DAM (Davies Allocation Money)? Will they win another game this season? So much to talk about and we have it all for you in the latest episode of the AFTN Soccer Show.
We look back at the lows and lows from the Whitecaps’ 2-0 defeat to the Sounders and hear from Carl Robinson after the Seattle match as he talks about the loss, the continued indiscipline in the team, what needs to change, and more. Plus Felipe has some strong and heartfelt thoughts after the derby day debacle.
Alphonso Davies looks to be heading to pastures new in Germany. We have the latest transfer talk and debate how that money could, and should, be used to improve the team. But will it be? Will the mass clearout that’s needed be forthcoming and is Robbo the right man to oversee it or has he lost the locker room?
It’s also been a busy week for the Canadian Premier League with the official launch of Victoria’s Pacific FC. We talk to one of the co-owners Josh Simpson about the club’s plans and his own footballing journey, and catch up with CPL Commissioner David Clanachan about expansion dreams and what’s next for the league.
All this, plus does Jake Nerwinski fancy a chocolate digestive, the MLS West week in review, we delve into some of the stories around the footballing world in BC Soccerweb headlines, and a band from my hometown, The Newtown Grunts feature in this week’s Wavelength.
