Are you hanging tough? Vancouver Whitecaps are certainly in it tough and when the going gets touch the AFTN Soccer Show gets better, and longer, and we’re back this week with an absolutely jam packed two and a half hour affair!
There’s no doubting Marc Dos Santos has his work cut out to get this Whitecaps team up to a serious playoff contender and Saturday’s latest loss to San Jose showed the gap between themselves and teams they should be beating, especially at home. We pick over the bones of the game, hear from both head coaches, and ponder where the ‘Caps go from here.
We also look ahead to the Cavalry FC game in the Canadian Championship on Wednesday and hear from MDS on his thoughts after the first leg. AFTN’s Calgary correspondent Scott Strasser joins us to chat about the Cavs season and what he expects from them in this second leg.
Plus we chat with MLS record goalscorer Chris Wondolowski, the Quakes’ former Whitecap Shea Salinas, and hear from Zlatan after the LA derby. There’s also lots of MLS chat and Ivor Cutler makes his first appearance in Wavelength.
