Vancouver Whitecaps' season is over. Fizzling out with a whimper, and not a bang in sight. One shot on target over two matches against Seattle Sounders is inexcusable, but that's what we got. Now, the post mortem.

Maybe it's fitting that for our Halloween show Vancouver Whitecaps and Seattle Sounders served up a horrific game of football at BC Place on Sunday night.

We pick over the dead carcass of that match, talk about the very brief highlights and standout players, and hear from both head coaches, Carl Robinson and Brian Schmetzer.

With that first leg thankfully laid to rest, we look ahead to part two on Thursday. How will both teams set up? Can it get any worse than Sunday? And do the 'Caps have a realistic chance of doing the business once again on the road when no-one expects it?

The ups and downs of Vancouver Whitecaps' season have been on full display over the past two games. In true Forrest Gump style, you simply do not know what you're going to get from them, apart from perhaps not that much satisfaction in their performance.

We look back at the 'Caps capitulation against New York Red Bulls, and hear from both head coaches, Vancouver's Carl Robinson and New York's Jesse Marsch. What was behind the Whitecaps formation and performance? Did anyone stand out? Can we read much into how things played out?

And there's still time to chat with Robert Earnshaw about his favourite season and talk take out food with Jordan Harvey.

We look back at both matches, standout players, the Whitecaps tactics and hear from Vancouver head coach Carl Robinson and his Sporting KC counterpart Peter Vermes.

We also turn our attention to the upcoming World Cup qualifiers with some international Whitecaps, as we talk Costa Rica with Kendall Waston, and New Zealand with Stefan Marinovic and Deklan Wynne.

Vancouver Whitecaps are still top of the West, with five games remaining. With four of those matches on the road, the 'Caps will need to be at their best to stay there and it gets off to a tricky start with a trip to Seattle on Wednesday evening.

We preview that match with Radio Cascadia's Steven Agen. Can the 'Caps extend their unbeaten run to eight? Are the Sounders slumping? How will Fredy Montero be received? All this and a lot more Cascadia Cup chat.

We also hear from Fredy Montero himself about heading back to his old haunts, plus Carl Robinson, David Ousted, and Jordan Harvey chat to us about how the 'Caps need to approach this season run-in against their closest challengers.

We also look back at Saturday's win over Colorado Rapids and hear from both head coaches, and chat with Kendall Waston about his season so far.

Due to some technical issues stationwide at CiTR radio, the podcast of Sunday's AFTN Soccer Show will not be available for a couple of days. As such we've used some of the audio from Sunday's show with newly recorded links inbetween them. We'll be bringing out a specially edited version of Sunday's show now later in the week (as Episode 222) and add in some post Seattle stuff, so watch you podcast feeds for that.

After a weekend of high drama, Vancouver Whitecaps showed that they're still the daddy of the MLS Western Conference.

As the 'Caps grabbed a dramatic stoppage time equaliser to salvage a point against Columbus Crew, Tony Tchani and Kekuta Manneh stole all the headlines.

We sit down with Robbo for an in-depth chat to explore his psyche, what makes him tick, how he builds and plays his teams, and the rest of the season ahead, plus is it actually better to have had Yordy Reyna injured and now flying when it matters?

Plus we talk football with the legend that is actor Ray Winstone as we chat about Saturday's charity match at BC Place, West Ham, the Whitecaps, MLS, and more.

Top of the Western Conference bay bay. That's where Vancouver Whitecaps find themselves this morning and long may it stay that way!

Wednesday night's 3-0 win over Minnesota United sent the 'Caps to the summit. We look back at the match and hear from both head coaches, Carl Robinson and Adrian Heath.

Vancouver Whitecaps are moving on up. Are they set to hit a purple patch of the season? Seven points from three tough matches bodes well, but can they find the consistency they are needing to take them down the stretch and finish in one of the top two places in the West.

We look back at he home draw against Seattle and the win on the road in Orlando. The 'Caps gave up a lot of shots and a lot of possession but still came away with four points from the six on the table, moving them up fourth in the standings. What went right? What's a cause for concern? And what players stood out for good and bad reasons?
