Episode 88 – The AFTN Podcast – “There’s Still Time” (That Was The Year That Was – Part One)

It’s that time again. Snow is on the ground, you can justify being covered in glitter to your wife without her suspecting you’ve been at the strippers, and fat people feel that they’re festively plump. And that can only mean one thing – it’s the start of AFTN’s end of season roundtables.

Episode 88 reunites your usual co-hosts Michael McColl and Steve Pandher, AFTN writer Jay Duke (briefly), and Curva Collective’s Zachary Meisenheimer and Steven Lamothe, to discuss the first two months of 2014 from a Vancouver Whitecaps perspective.

Surprising no-one, we kick off in January and look back on the Camilo saga, Robbo’s management team, the SuperDraft, the additions of players like Steven Beitashour and the USL PRO partnership with Charleston Battery. Away from the ‘Caps we also look at the CSA’s strategic plan and the possible bid for the 2026 World Cup.

Training camp opened and the Caps made a couple of preseason trips in February, first to Arizona and then on to Cascadian rivals Portland Timbers. Playerwise, Nigel Reo-Coker, Omar Salgado, Andre Lewis and Matias Laba got tongues wagging for various reasons.

And there’s still time to look at the excellent re-signing of Mauro Rosales and hear from the man himself.
