Episode 402 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Bubble Football with special guests Marc Dos Santos and Theo Bair)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and it is packed as we take you inside the bubble at the MLS is Back tournament in Orlando.
We’ve been busy boys this past week and we’ll bring you chat about and audio from Vancouver Whitecaps, Toronto FC, Montreal Impact, San Jose Earthquakes, Chicago Fire, Sporting Kansas City, Minnesota United, Orlando City, and Houston Dynamo in a near three hour tournament special.
We’ll have some chat with head coaches Thierry Henry, Greg Vanney, Adrian Heath, Matias Almeyda, Raphael Wicky, Peter Vermes, and Tab Ramos and players Nani, Justin Morrow, Jukka Raitala, and Matt Besler about life in the bubble, the weather, the games so far, and more.
We also have two Whitecaps feature interviews this episode.
Kicking things off is a half hour one on one with ‘Caps coach Marc Dos Santos who takes us deep into Vancouver’s bubble to tell us about his daily routine, the team’s preparation for the tournament, his approach to the games, dealing with missing key players, the adversity ahead, and a lot more.
Next up is a great chat with homegrown star Theo Bair. We talk about the opportunity this tournament offers him to shine with the Whitecaps depleted roster, look at what life’s been like for him down in Orlando, talk about the Black Lives Matters show of unity, and more.
Plus there’s part three of our latest episodic football drama ‘Wanted For Wembley’.
