Episode 416 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Seizing The Day, Or Not – Portland v Vancouver, MLS playoffs, CPL Bundesliga interest?)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and Canadian Premier League chat.
Vancouver’s playoff hopes hang by a thread after their losses to Seattle and Portland this week and the new Points Per Game rule to decide the MLS playoff positions this season. There’s still a glimmer of hope but a lot depends on whether LAFC and San Jose play midweek.
We chat about the 1-0 loss to Portland, the farcical and unbalanced MLS playoff rules, and hear from Whitecaps head coach Marc Dos Santos and defender Jake Nerwinski.
Plus we also discuss the rumours of Bundesliga interest in having a CPL team in the lower mainland, and since it’s Halloween, it’s time to dig out Pa Modou Kah’s Thriller!
Here’s the rundown for the main segments from the episode:
02.31: Timbers v Whitecaps postgame review including the thoughts of Marc Dos Santos
34.44: MLS playoff farce – with audio from Marc Dos Santos and Jake Nerwinski
72.07: CPL in the lower mainland discussion
84.54: Wavelength – Murray Torkildsen – Stop Talking Football
