Doesn’t it just feel like yesterday that the MLS season was coming to an end? Well actually no, it feels an age away, but fret not because the boys are back in town as Vancouver Whitecaps preseason training camp is underway.
And they have some new players too to talk about this week, so we do just that, plus we cast our eyes over some of the trialists in the camp and what they offer the team.
Our feature interview this week is with the ‘Caps’ new DP striker Lucas Cavallini. We chat about moving away from Canada at 16 to learn his trade in Uruguay and Mexico, coming back home after a decade away, and what he hopes to bring to the Whitecaps and to MLS this season. All great to know, but does he fancy a chocolate digestive?
We also look at the big stories in the Canadian Premier League and Canadian soccer this week including a new team in Ottawa, a new head coach at Pacific FC, and some of the transfer rumours doing the rounds.
We also continue our month of FA Cup themed tunes in Wavelength with one from the Liverpool 1988 FA Cup Final Squad and
German band Gurr continue their residency as our artists of the month.
