We knew it wouldn’t last. Vancouver Whitecaps unbeaten run is over! It was only two games, but boy, what a couple of matches!
A Cascadia Cup loss to Portland means another trophy deserts the ‘Caps this season. We look at the match and what has been a busy week of comings, goings, and rumours in Whitecapsland.
We sit down for a chat with ‘Caps coach Marc Dos Santos to talk about squad building, mistakes made, recruitment practices, and just how a club like Vancouver can compete with the big spenders of MLS.
It’s been a week with a lot of news in MLS too. We delve into the weekend’s matches, look at Wayne Rooney’s imminent departure, how LA Galaxy seem to have manipulated MLS roster rules in their favour yet again, and we hear from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as he slates MLS refs and the playoff system.
All this plus we look at the week’s Canadian Championship action, discuss the current set up of football on TV here, and there’s Wavelength, BC Soccerweb headlines, and fun food segments with David Edgar and Felipe Martins.
