Episode 294 – The AFTN Soccer Show (The State That We Are In) [NSFW]
At half time on Saturday, it felt like a seismic shift in Vancouver Whitecaps’ season lay in store. By full time, it may have been a result that does that but in a completely opposite way. Trailing 2-0 to the worst team in all of MLS, the ‘Caps dug deep and pulled out a 3-2 come from behind victory in San Jose.
Is this a major mental turning point of their season or just another struggle against a poor team, albeit one that ended with three points for once? We look at that and all the other main talking points from the match and hear from both head coaches.
Our big part three discussion topic this week focuses on the current state of the Whitecaps. We analyse some of ‘Caps President Bobby Lenarduzzi’s comments on TSN radio this week as we get set for what feels like the biggest offseason in the club’s MLS era. We look at what the mandate for a new coach should be, what the Whitecaps’ future should look like, how to integrate our youth talent better, and a lot more.
All this, plus we talk ice cream with Kei Kamara, look at the weekend’s action around MLS, and Argy Bargy are back in this week’s Wavelength.
