Vancouver Whitecaps are in a mess. Or are a mess. Or maybe both. Forget Friday the 13th, Saturday the 13th was a day to avoid for them, with no luck to be found at BC Place.
We pick over the bones of the ‘Caps’ third straight loss in a row, a 3-0 home defeat to Sporting Kansas City. We look at where the Whitecaps go from here, the defensive deficiencies, and the lack of attack, plus hear Marc Dos Santos’ thoughts on it all ahead of two tough games this week.
We also hear SKC head coach Peter Vermes’ thoughts on the match and the Whitecaps, look around the happenings in MLS, and get a chat with the man, KC’s Scottish forward Johnny Russell about life in the league, whether Sporting can launch a late push for the playoffs, and his thoughts on the new Scotland boss Steve Clarke.
Plus we delve into the farcical new rules for CONCACAF 2022 World Cup qualifying and Helen Love is back in this week’s Wavelength.
