Episode 566 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Through Gritted Teeth)

We’re back with another packed show of Canadian soccer chat. As the feast of footballing action continues across the country, we’ll be talking Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, the Canadian Championship, and the Canadian Premier League in this episode.

The Whitecaps had two home MLS matches in the space of four days, taking four points but providing two very different talking points coming out of them. We delve into both the history-making win over Houston and the refereeing drama that surrounded the draw with Sporting Kansas City, two games which highlight that there is still a bit of work needing to be done if the ‘Caps want to be considered serious postseason contenders.

We also look ahead to the Canadian Championship final with Montreal on Wednesday, delve into the latest loss for Vancouver FC in the BC derby with Pacific FC, and chat about some of the other dramatic games around the world this past week as leagues and cups wrap up for the summer break over in Europe.

Plus Irish band Therapy? make their debut as our >Artists of the Month.
