Episode 569 – The AFTN Soccer Show (When The Hoodoo Comes… To An End)

We’re back with another packed show of Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, Canadian national team, and League1 BC chat, and we’re joined this week by Harjeet Johal to do it all.

It’s been an eventful week for the Whitecaps after being rained out in Colorado before it was raining goals in LA for their first away victory in over a year.

We chat about the farcical scenes in Colorado that led to the postponement of Wednesday’s match with the Rapids and hear from a philosophical Vanni Sartini about the whole thing. Then we delve into that famous win for the ‘Caps at LAFC with a new formation, some players playing in strange positions, and a far more aggressive approach on the road than we’ve seen in the past.

Turning our attention to the international stage, we look at the latest financial woes facing Canada Soccer and chat about Canada at the recent CONCACAF Nations League and the upcoming Gold Cup, and bring you some audio from the recently retired Atiba Hutchinson.

All of this plus we round up the action around MLS this past week, including the sacking of TFC coach Bob Bradley, and we talk League1 BC, with interviews with TSS Rovers men’s head coach Darren Russcher and Whitecaps Girls Elite head coach Katie Collar.
