Episode 335 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Kicked In The Head – Whitecaps v Galaxy, Zlatan, MLS, CPL, football clichés) [NSFW]
It was all looking fairly good at half time, penalty horrorshow aside. It was looking like the Lion Ibrahimovic was sleeping tonight, with Doneil Henry as the Lion tamer. Then it all went horribly long, Vancouver Whitecaps looked a disorganised and dysfunctional mess, and another loss was handed out following another blank at home.
We look back at the good, the bad, and the ugly from the loss to LA, hear from both head coaches, chat with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and ponder where the ‘Caps go from here.
Plus we look at the weekend’s action in the MLS West, talk CPL jerseys and football clichés, continue our 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl celebrations, find out if Scott Sutter fancies a chocolate digestive, and The Business are back again in this week’s Wavelength.

I think the band Zach is thinking of is Temple of the Dog, a supergroup formed in Seattle in the 90’s. I don’t think Dave Grohl was part of that project. Wikipedia says the band was conceived by vocalist Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of the bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. The lineup included Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar, Jeff Ament on bass guitar (both ex-members of Mother Love Bone), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) on lead guitar, and Matt Cameron (Soundgarden and later Pearl Jam) on drums. Eddie Vedder appeared as a guest to provide some lead and backing vocals.
Oh I’ve never heard of them. I’m thinking it’s Them Crooked Vultures though. He’s been involved in some great bands for sure!
I try to help and look what happens? I get schooled. Thanks Michael.
