It may be the offseason but it’s been one hell of a busy week in Whitecapsland and we bring you all the news and reaction in the latest episode of “There’s Still Time”, the AFTN Soccer podcast.
Episode 87 reunites your usual co-hosts Michael McColl and Steve Pandher, AFTN writer Jay Duke, and Curva Collective’s Zachary Meisenheimer and Steven Lamothe, to discuss the latest Vancouver Whitecaps happenings.
We kick things off with a look at the MLS Expansion Draft. The ‘Caps only lost one player, Mehdi Ballouchy, any real loss there apart from an experienced head? We also look at the picks of new boys New York City and Orlando City. Who won the battle? Did Orlando have any clue as to what they were doing? And we ask the question on many people’s lips – who the hell is Tony Taylor?
But it’s been a week of moving and shaking. Players were re-signed, options were declined, Omar Salgado finally moved on and it looks like Sebastian Fernandez won’t be back in the while and blue. We look at the impact of all these decisions and more.
Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson shares some thoughts on the week’s movements and what may lie in store as he gets set to jet back home to Wales and take in some matches in Europe over the Christmas period.
And there’s still time to continue my Carlton Cole rumours and start a new Robbie Keane one.
