Episode 526 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Getting Nowhere Fast)
We’re back with another packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show for your listening pleasure as we talk Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and Panini stickers, with our usual splattering of fine tunes thrown in for your aural pleasure.
After the Whitecaps’ latest loss, the season is all but mathematically over and the regression and recent form has been sad to see. We look back over the ‘Caps loss in Colorado and the goals and controversial moment that got them there. So what now for Vancouver?
How safe is Vanni Sartini’s job? How secure are the players and how many do you even want back? How much of a rebuild is needed and why are the club going through this again? With four games remaining, how should the ‘Caps approach these final matches and what will it take to get the fans back in the stands?
We chat about all of that and a lot more and talk about the ever rising cost of completing Panini sticker albums and talk about some of our favourites from through the years. And there’s even time for some Wrexham chat.
Here’s the rundown for the main segments from the episode:
