Episode 286 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Darwinism – Vancouver v Minnesota Preview Show)
It’s a grueling time for Vancouver Whitecaps. Three matches in eight days, with two of them in the space of four days, all of them crucial for how the season could play out, and it’s sweltering hot outside. This will test a lot about the current ‘Caps squad.
After a gutless performance in Seattle, and a battling midweek one against Montreal to reach the Canadian Championship final, which Whitecaps team will we see turn up to take on an in-form Minnesota United side this weekend?
Will there be more rotation to rest some guys up, or does Robbo ride a clean sheet and a good performance on Wednesday night with an almost same starting XI? Was that win against Montreal a blip or a turning point? How can the struggling Whitecaps defence cope with the huge danger posed by Minnesota’s Darwin Quintero (9 goals and 6 assists), Christian Ramirez (7 goals and 2 assists), and Miguel Ibarra (6 goals and 6 assists)?
Joe returns from baby daddy duties this week to discuss all of that and more with Nick, plus a quick look back over that win over the Impact, the Alphonso Davies transfer, and the guys play a frankly terrifying ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ game with a Whitecaps twist.
