Episode 375 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Snow Days with special guest Ryan Raposo)
Christmas already feels like an age away, although the snowy weather outside may beg to differ.
The Whitecaps still seem to be thawing our their frosty wallets as new signing have not yet been forthcoming, but there have been some exciting additions for us to chat about this week, both on and off the pitch.
There’s a new CEO running the show. We hear a little bit from Mark Pannes and chat about the impact he, and we, hope that he’ll have on the ‘Caps.
We also sit down for a chat with the Whitecaps’ latest Canadian, first round draft pick Ryan Raposo about his footballing journey so far and heading to Vancouver, and look at how worried we should be that there haven’t been any other additions yet this year with preseason camp kicking off in a matter of days.
We also speculate as to whether Vancouver is back in the mix to host World Cup matches in 2026, continue our month of FA Cup themed tunes in Wavelength with one from former the Tottenham Hotspur 1981 FA Cup Final Squad and
German band Gurr continue their residency as our artists of the month.
