Episode 340 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Come What May – Colorado v Vancouver, Scott Sutter interview, Whitecaps scandals, CPL, MLS)
Another busy week is in the book and it was a rare winning one for Vancouver Whitecaps. At least on the pitch.
Thankfully the ‘Caps didn’t have to send out any Mayday cries for help from Colorado, although they were made to work hard in their 2-1 win over the Rapids. We look back at that match, the main talking points coming out of it for the team and individual players, and have a quick look ahead to Portland coming to town on Friday night.
We also catch up with Whitecaps right back Scott Sutter who took in Pacific FC’s first ever match last weekend. We get his thoughts on the CPL, his friendships with Pacific head coach Michael Silberbauer and co-owner Josh Simpson, and chat about his own coaching plans and how it’s making him look at games a little bit differently.
We also look at the continuing scandals surround the Whitecaps off the pitch, plus we continue our 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl celebrations, look at the annoyance that was VAR in MLS this week, and Football Violence Awareness Month wraps up with The Men They Couldn’t Hang in our latest Wavelength section.
