Episode 415 – The AFTN Soccer Show (The Devil’s Horsemen – Whitecaps win one, lose one)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out and we’re joined this week by Radio Cascadia’s Steven Agen and football journalist Harjeet Johal for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps and Major League Soccer chat.
The ‘Caps won one and lost one in the space of 72 hours. We look at the win over San Jose and the loss to Seattle, where that leaves them in the playoff chase, delve into some individual performances, plus we hear the postgame thoughts of Whitecaps head coach Marc Dos Santos and those of playoff clinching Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer
The MLS season run-in is still tight in the Western Conference as the Whitecaps become Vancouver’s Devil’s Horsemen, rampaging through foreign lands in the search for glory. We look at all the permutations affecting the ‘Caps and hear from Dos Santos, Lucas Cavallini, and Andy Rose about wanting to make this season mean something, the strains of being away from home, and the unknowns around playoff positioning.
And we have a special musical treat for you this week as we bring you four songs from Max Splodge’s Ghengis Khan and Mongolian themed album Holidays In Mongolia. What other football podcast brings you such things?!

Or after all that, you could just listen on the player below!
BANG! BANG! BANG! Anybody listening? MLS playoff qualification change alert. Whitecaps out, Rapids in. MLS being MLS. As an Owner of the Whitecaps, spending big bucks to try and win serves NO PURPOSE, regardless of management competency. Sorry Michael, the good work you and the guys do is nothing more than lipstick on a pig. It’s shocking how MLS treats the Whitecaps. We all need money, but why do you continue to correspond for those LITTLE pricks?
Killing time till there’s a lower mainland CPL team!
Another method of killing time is to smoke a lot of pot, playing golf, while cruz’n for easy woman. Got me a hole in one last year. Shedding the little types of people in the world like water off a ducks back makes you a bigger man. MLS is SMALL. Say hello to your LITTLE friends Michael.
