Episode 517 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Melting Moments)

We’re back with another episode of the AFTN Soccer Show for your listening pleasure, with lots of Vancouver Whitecaps and MLS chat.

The Whitecaps were in action twice this past week again on league and cup duty. Sunday saw a battling point earned at home to New England Revolution in MLS action, but midweek saw the ‘Caps reach their first Canadian Championship final since 2018 with a win over York United.

We pick over the bones of both of those game, the highlights and lowlights, and look ahead to the threat Toronto FC will pose in the final with their big addition of Lorenzo Insigne.

The Whitecaps next opponents LAFC have made a couple of big additions of their own in Giorgio Chiellini and Gareth Bale. What impact will they have on the league and it’s perception in some quarters? Plus we round-up how the MLS West is looking.

Plus music from artists of the month Thick and Kunt and the Gang are in this episode’s Wavelength.
