Episode 389 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Football Fairy Stories with guests Marc Dos Santos, Andy Rose, and Axel Schuster)

No football. No problem. The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and it’s another packed episode.

We bring you the latest news from North America and around the world as football’s global shutdown continues, plus we hear some thoughts from Vancouver Whitecaps Sporting Director Axel Schuster about it all and what may lie ahead.

We also sit down for a fascinating and frank chat with Whitecaps head coach Marc Dos Santos about his coaching influences, what’s made him the coach he is today, his USL/NASL Coach of the Decade plaudit from The Athletic, the strain being a coach can put on your personal life, and what advice he has for young coaches just starting out.

And we bring you another of our in-depth Football Firsts career retrospectives as we delve into Whitecaps midfielder Andy Rose’s journey so far.

There’s also the penultimate part of our new episodic drama serial, we debate which Whitecaps players would be on our two Mount Rushmores, Art Brut begin their residency as our artists of the month for April, and The Adicts provide this week’s football song in Wavelength. Plus we finally got to watch our beloved Slutsk in action.
