Episode 525 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Every Point’s A Prisoner)
We’ve been away a long time (well three weeks) but we’re finally back with another jam-packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show for your listening pleasure as we talk Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and the Canadian Premier League, with our usual splattering of fine tunes thrown in for your aural pleasure.
Our last show came after the Whitecaps capitulation down in LA. There’s been four games since then and we’ve seen the good, the bad, the ugly, and the very ugly side of the ‘Caps in that time as the team went from having their heads above the playoff line for the first time this season, to rapidly sinking below it and in danger of disappearing without a trace.
With every point a prisoner, the Whitecaps have left the cell door wide open and some of their performances have been criminal. We look back over the past few weeks, take a look around the current lie of the land in MLS, and what it all means for the ‘Caps. Plus we have to talk about the controversial C word – Cava.
Here’s the rundown for the main segments from the episode:
01.30: Back from Bonnie Scotland
16.15: The last few weeks in Whitecapsland
29.24: Earthquakes leave ‘Caps playoff hopes in ruins
59.10: MLS round-up and the lie of the land
76.31 The C Word – Cava
87.55: CPL chat
96.45: Wavelength – Admiral Fallow – Subbuteo

Or after all that, you could just listen on the player below!
Love the Teibert discussion. Don’t get in the elevator, Whewww!!!
Blackmon is responsible for, at least, two “spot” goals against.
He can go with everyone you mentioned.
What is Cavallini’s market value? Could the Caps even move him?
Mutually agree to terminate contract! Pay him out “on the side”.
Not too many on this squad that can’t, or shouldn’t, be replaced.
Teibert, Cava, Vanni, Schuster, Mallet!
Can we start here?
