Episode 461 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Scorchio! – Whitecaps draw, Ryan Gauld rumours, CPL kicks off, Alan Koch interview)
The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and Canadian Premier League chat.
British Columbia is under a heat dome, but thankfully the Whitecaps lifted some of the dark clouds over the team this weekend with a battling draw in Seattle to end a five game losing streak. It wasn’t enough to stop them sinking to bottom in the West but it’s given some hope.
We pick over the bones of that game and the midweek loss to LA Galaxy, hear from head coach Marc Dos Santos and DP striker Lucas Cavallini, and look ahead at how the ‘Caps can build on a positive performance. They still need a number 10 badly. Is Scottish player Ryan Gauld the man? We chat about the transfer rumour we broke and hear MDS’ thoughts on the player.
The Canadian Premier League kicked off this weekend and our feature interview this episode is with new FC Edmonton head coach Alan Koch as we talk about building the Eddies roster and what to expect from the side this season. Plus we hear from CPL commissioner David Clanachan, Pacific FC head coach Pa Modou Kah, and HFX Wanderers’ Stephen Hart.
