Episode 407 – The AFTN Soccer Show (The Sum Of Its Parts)

The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and we bring you another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and Canadian Premier League chat.

This is something of a Frankenstein’s monster of an episode as we mix in parts of Friday’s live TFC postgame You Tube stream with some fresh recordings, add in some CPL coaches audio, and add a sprinkling of Montreal’s Thierry Henry to bring it all together. So if you think the sound and tone changes as we go through this one, then you are correct. It’s not your ears!

We have an extensive discussion around Vancouver Whitecaps’ current woes after two defeats by Toronto, some seriously lacking performances, the need to rebuild yet again, and much more. Plus ‘Caps coach Marc Dos Santos talks Andy Rose and fans attending matches.

We also hear from ‘Caps striker Lucas Cavallini after two difficult outings, and chat about what we do now with Fredy Montero and Yordy Reyna, and replacing Inbeom Hwang.

We’re 11 days into the Canadian Premier League’s Island Games tournament. We chat about the action so far, talk with Cavalry FC head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr about his side’s strong start, and hear from FC Edmonton’s Jeff Paulus and HFX Wanderers’ Stephen Hart ahead of what could be a decisive meeting of the two teams later this week.

Plus we take a look at Canada’s qualifying path to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
