Happy Easter everyone. It wasn’t quite the eggcellent Easter week that Vancouver Whitecaps yearned for. A win and a defeat is okay on paper, but how did it leave you feeling as it played out in front of your eyes?
We look back at the ‘Caps win over LAFC and the loss in Orlando. Where did it all go right and wrong, and where does the team need to go from here? We chat a little with Marc Dos Santos to get his thoughts on that and how the team is shaping up eight games into his tenure.
We have a couple of feature interviews for you this week, both with a defensive slant, and featuring a current and an ex Whitecap. We sit down with goalkeeper Max Crepeau about his early days playing football as a kid in Quebec and the recent ‘Caps matches.
Then we catch up with an old friend, LAFC right back Steven Beitashour to chat about not being valued as a defender in MLS, his career high, his new podcasting venture with Jordan Harvey, and more.
Plus we continue our 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl celebrations, look at the weeken’ds action in the MLS West, hear some gold from LAFC head coach Bob Bradley on the BC Place turf, and go a little French for this week’s Football Violence Awareness Month Wavelength.
