Episode 397 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Clouds Of My Dilemma with guest Jonathan Tannenwald)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and it’s another packed episode.
We thought we’d have a week off from player and management interviews and just focus on the chat this week, as we look at the biggest stories both here in North American soccer and over in the UK.
Jonathan Tannenwald from Philadelphia’s Inquirer.com joins us to look at the main talking points from a busy week of news in Major League Soccer and the National Women’s Soccer League. While the NWSL has a firm date to return, the MLS is still wrangling with their players. Could there even be a lockout?
Zachary Meisenheimer then joins us to focus on here in Canada as we look at the proposals to get the Canadian Premier League back playing on an island somewhere, the launch of Atletico Ottawa’s new strip, and some murmurs coming out that may affect Canada’s bid to make the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
All this plus does Jeff Paulus fancy a chocolate digestive and we honour goalkeepers in this week’s Wavelength.
