Episode 367 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Cobblers featuring Axel Schuster, John Herdman, Rob Gale, and Fredy Montero) [NSFW]
Vancouver Whitecaps finally have their new sporting director and we’ve come all over a little German for this week’s show. We look at the hiring of Axel Schuster and what it might mean for the club, as well as hearing from the man himself. Plus all the other big Whitecaps and MLS stories and rumours from the past seven days.
Sadly that’s where the good news stops as we have to look at Canada’s disappointing defeat by the US on Friday night and hear some postgame thoughts from head coach John Herdman.
Turning our attention to the Canadian Premier League, we sit down for an in-depth chat with Valour FC head coach Rob Gale about the club’s first ever season and the challenges he faced, plus all the latest CPL news of the week.
Plus does Fredy Montero fancy a chocolate digestive as we talk to him about his new coffee shop? There’s a song about Thierry Henry in this week’s Wavelength, Goldie Lookin’ Chain continue their residency as our artists of the month for November, and there’s BC Soccerweb headlines.
