AFTN Soccer Show (Vancouver Whitecaps/MLS)

The AFTN football/soccer podcast about Vancouver Whitecaps and Major League Soccer (MLS)

After a busy, and dramatic, couple of weeks, it's been a chance for everyone in Whitecapsland to catch their breath, and take time to reflect on the season past and the season yet to come.

It also finally gives us the chance to kick off our AFTN awards season, and we're joined by Joe Deasy to kick this week's show off with a look at who we feel are Vancouver Whitecaps' Player and Young Player of the Year, and chat what we think are the 'Caps Goal, Game, Save, and Miss of the Year.

After our excellent chat with new 'Caps coach Marc Dos Santos last week, we're excited about what lies ahead in Vancouver. He mentioned that he feels having some MLS experience in the squad is crucial, so we don our Armchair GM hat to look around the league and see what goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders, and forwards that Dos Santos could realistically play for, and who and what we might have to give up in return.

All this plus we sit down for an in-depth chat with Whitecaps defender Brett Levis about his season, his MLS journey so far, and what the future holds in store. Plus Canadian national team chat and Halftime Oranges are back for this week's Wavelength section.

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

The Marc Dos Santos era in Vancouver has begun.

We look back at the week that was in Whitecapsland and some of the main talking points to come out of his introductory press conference. Plus we sit down with the new Whitecaps head coach for an entertaining and enlightening half hour chat about how he sees the 'Caps progressing, how he likes to play, his beliefs, attitudes, and footballing philosophies.

Ah, the offseason. A quiet time for reflection and fun and games on the show. Or so we hoped. But nothing could have prepared us for the Vancouver Whitecaps bloodletting that took place at the club's end of season media day last Tuesday.

We look back at all the big talking points from the Whitecaps' very own red wedding. Is there a locker room divide? Is there a culture problem at the club? Who's to blame? Plus we play you the thoughts of veteran Mexican midfielder Efrain Juarez on it all.

What's next for the club? There's a new manager coming in but do the changes need to go much deeper? Also what will he make of what happened and what he's coming in to and will he even have much of a squad to inherit?

With a number of player's futures very much up in the air, we look over a few and sit down with goalkeeper Spencer Richey after his return from a season long loan with FC Cincinnati. Will he be heading back there? Plus we talk fan abuse and struggling to settle in with Felipe, look the weekend's action around MLS, and much more.

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

It's the end of the season and the end of an, albeit short, era as Vancouver Whitecaps 2018 MLS season came to an end on Sunday and Alphonso Davies said goodbye to the club, the fans, and the city as he gets set to head off to Europe to join Bayern Munich.

We look back at the emotional day that was but also the frustration that was left behind with the final standings that saw the 'Caps finish just two points, and one win, away from a playoff spot. How close were Vancouver in reality and does the squad need a complete rebuild or build around a current core when the new manager comes in? We look at all that and more, and ponder which other players we may have seen for the last time.

We also sit down with Alphonso Davies to talk about his three years with the Whitecaps and relive some memories with him of his time in Vancouver. Plus we chat with Jordon Mutch about the ups and downs of his first season in MLS and hear from young homegrown player Simon Colyn after his MLS debut.

All good things come to an end. And so do bad things thankfully. Whatever Vancouver Whitecaps 2018 MLS season was, their playoff hopes were finally ended this weekend after two varying performances against teams at the top end of the Western Conference.

We look back at the week that was. The collapse and defeat to Sporting KC, the fighting back draw against LAFC, and some of the headscratching decisions that happened over the 180 minutes.

So where did it all go wrong for the Whitecaps this season, and were we really all that far away or is there an ever widening gap between Vancouver and the top teams in the West?

All this plus the MLS, USL, and Canadian national team news of the week, and we go Dutch for this week's Wavelength section.

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

02.13: The Whitecaps Week That Was - KC loss and LAFC draw

Vancouver Whitecaps stayed alive in the playoff race this weekend, coming away from Toronto with what has to be said was an unexpected 2-1 victory and ending TFC's postseason hopes in the process.

We look back at that win, hear from Craig Dalrymple, and see how the run-in and playoff scenario is looking now for the Whitecaps and those above them.

There's also some Canada national team talk, a discussion on what the Whitecaps identity should be under their new coach, and some general Thanksgiving fun.

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

It's been an eventful week for Vancouver Whitecaps, albeit not the kind of headlines the club would be hoping they'd be making at this point of the season.

Carl Robinson's departure was a look to the future for the 'Caps, but if anyone thought it was going to have an immediate impact on the present, Saturday's loss to the LA Galaxy quickly dispelled those thoughts.

We look back on the week that was, talking some more about Robbo's release and who the prime candidates are to take over from him. Marc Dos Santos may be the standout name at the top of many people's lists, but who else is in the frame? And what identity will that see the 'Caps with moving forward?

We also pick over the bones of the loss in LA, hear from both interim head coaches, and bring you Zlatan Ibrahimovic's view on Alphonso Davies heading to Bayern Munich. The playoffs are still a mathematical possibility, but it's one tricky equation to make that happen.

All this, plus we look at what Robbo's departure will mean to some of the current squad, play you Kendall Waston's thoughts on it all, and English punk poet Patrik Fitzgerald features in this week's Wavelength.

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

03.05: Robbo's firing and the state of the Whitecaps FO
40.55: Whitecaps' coaching candidates
58.59: LA Galaxy v Vancouver Whitecaps analysis
65.31: Craig Dalrymple audio -

111.32: BC Soccerweb headlines - a look at some stories from around the football world

00:0000:00

The Carl Robinson era is over at Vancouver Whitecaps. He's certainly left an admirable legacy behind but it's time to get back to basics for the remainder of this season before the club heads into its most important offseason in their time in MLS.

We look back at Robbo's sacking, the timing of it, what it means for the future, and especially how it may play out for the rest of this season. We also sit down for a chat with new, interim head coach, and a man we've known well for a number of years now, Craig Dalrymple.

The dismissal of Robbo aside, there's still five games left to battle in this season, and while the playoffs may feel like a somewhat distant hope right now, they are at least still within touching distance and we chat with Stefan Marinovic about the mood of the group heading into them, facing Ibra and LA this weekend, and more.

One man who we may see down the stretch is the last player Robbo brought into the squad, Marvin Emnes. We chat with the Dutch winger about where his fitness levels are at, when we may see him, and if he sees a future for himself in Vancouver at a Robboless Whitecaps.

We go old school for this impromptu episode, recording it in our car! So the sound quality isn't up to our usual studio standard, but hopefully it won't take away from your enjoyment too much!

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

01.49: Carl Robinson fired
11.00: Craig Dalrymple interview and discussion
18.11: Some of the players and media's reaction to Robbo's firing
26.46: Stefan Marinovic interview and LA galaxy chat
33.16: Marvin Emnes interview and discussion

00:0000:00

What a weekend this could have been. Once again Vancouver Whitecaps had other results go in their favour and once again they failed to get the job done themselves. "Same again" said Carl Robinson, "not again" said the supporters.

So our 300th episode isn't quite the celebratory start we'd hoped for as we pick over the bones of the 'Caps defeat to FC Dallas, but the fun soon starts to pick up after that!

We have two interviews to bring you this week. First off all it's a blast from the past as we chat with Whitecaps legend Jay Nolly about his time with the 'Caps and his new career as a commentator for RSL.

Next up is Rahul Kohli from iZombie to talk football, the last season of one of our favourite shows on TV right now, Funhaus, and racial stereotypes in the acting world. It's a great chat and we only wish we had double the time with him to get all our zombie questions out there!

All this, plus we look at the weekend's action the MLS West, find out if Scott Arfield fancies a chocolate digestive, talk take out food with Jake Nerwinski and fish and chips with Kei Kamara, and there's a double dose of Wavelength to celebrate our milestone show featuring our favourites Half Man Half Biscuit and Frank Sidebottom.

Last week's loss to Seattle hit Vancouver Whitecaps' playoff hopes hard, but they're still hovering around the playoff line, albeit underneath it, as second placed FC Dallas come to town on Sunday.

Joe, Nick, and Gideon look ahead to the match in this week's preview podcast. Can they bounce back from last week's loss? Are they meeting Dallas at the right time after their own mini dip in form? And is there really hope of the playoffs or are we simply grasping at a fantasy?

There's a lot on the line, as there will be every week now going forward if the 'Caps can grind out results, and we bring you a new twist on the "Do You Know Who I Am?" game and it's a fun one.

00:0000:00

Fire up the bat signal as Vancouver Whitecaps are going to need the help of a superhero or two if they want to get into the MLS playoffs. Or at least that's how it's looking after the 'Caps big 2-1 loss to Cascadian rivals Seattle Sounders on Saturday night.

Joe Deasy joins us to look back on the game, all the big talking points to come out of it, and we hear from both head coaches.

We also sit down with Whitecaps midfielder Aly Ghazal to talk about his, and the 'Caps', season so far and his recent recall to the Egyptian national team after a four year absence.

Our main interview segment this week is with MLS commissioner Don Garber. We bring you the full, unedited 18 minute audio from his chat with ourselves and some other Vancouver media on Friday, as we talk about the league's growth, the schedule and playoff structure, DP's not playing on turf, how the CPL might impact the league in Canada, why Vancouver haven't hosted an All-Star game, and lots more.

All this, plus we look at the weekend's action the MLS West and Los Campesinos feature in this week's Wavelength.

00:0000:00

Last year's playoff series with Seattle Sounders was a massive letdown for Vancouver Whitecaps supporters. The team's performance over the two legs was simply not good enough, and the lack of attacking desire in the home leg in particular was a major disappointment.

The two teams meet at BC Place this weekend for the first time since that match, and for the second time this season. When the sides clashed in Seattle in July, the 'Caps kickstarted an eight-match unbeaten streak for the Sounders. If they want to keep their playoff hopes alive, they need to end it on Saturday. This time they have to attack and they have to win. It already feels all or nothing.

Joe and Nick look ahead to the match in this week's preview podcast? How will the 'Caps replace the suspended Yordy Reyna? Can they stifle the Sounders midfield? And how are the Whitecaps playoff percentage chances akin to Donald Trump?! All that chat and more!

There's a lot on the line and this week Joe has actually finally found a game that Nick does well at! Can you? Have a listen and find out!

00:0000:00

The international break affords Vancouver Whitecaps a bye week, but there's no rest for us as we bring you another packed episode.

The break gives us a chance to look ahead at what the Whitecaps squad could and should look like next season, as the team approaches their most important offseason in the MLS era.

We've got two in-depth interviews with you this week, the first is with Canadian national team captain Scott Arfield, as he chats about international life and his big move to Rangers, plus on the 39th anniversary of the Whitecaps 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl win, we chat with the man who led that team to glory, and guided Canada to the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, Tony Waiters.

We also look at the Canadian national team's record-breaking win over the US Virgin Islands and how the program is moving forward under John Herdman, while also hearing from the man himself.

All this, plus we look at the main Whitecaps and Canadian Premier League news stories of the week and Flyscreen are back for this week's Wavelength.

Vancouver Whitecaps' playoff dreams are still alive. Likely looking in better shape than many people's underwear in the closing moments of their match with San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, but only just.

Joe Deasy joins us in the studio this week to look over the Quakes match and what it might mean for the rest of the season as we break down every MLS Western team's run-in. Plus all the talking points to come from the game, we hear from both head coaches, and look at the week's other big stories in Whitecapsland.

We've got a slew of interviews for you this week, kicking things off as we chat with San Jose's Chris Wondolowski as he approaches MLS' all time scoring record. Will he do it and will he be back for another season?

We also sit down with the Whitecaps' Felipe to chat about his season, how he's settled in Vancouver, and the more defensive role he's being asked to play, and we talk the Canadian national team with Marcel de Jong.

All this, plus we catch up with former Whitecaps MLS striker Caleb Clarke as he begins life at UBC with a bang, and after a four month absence, Half Man Half Biscuit are back for this week's Wavelength.

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

At half time on Saturday, it felt like a seismic shift in Vancouver Whitecaps' season lay in store. By full time, it may have been a result that does that but in a completely opposite way. Trailing 2-0 to the worst team in all of MLS, the 'Caps dug deep and pulled out a 3-2 come from behind victory in San Jose.

Is this a major mental turning point of their season or just another struggle against a poor team, albeit one that ended with three points for once? We look at that and all the other main talking points from the match and hear from both head coaches.

Our big part three discussion topic this week focuses on the current state of the Whitecaps. We analyse some of 'Caps President Bobby Lenarduzzi's comments on TSN radio this week as we get set for what feels like the biggest offseason in the club's MLS era. We look at what the mandate for a new coach should be, what the Whitecaps' future should look like, how to integrate our youth talent better, and a lot more.

All this, plus we talk ice cream with Kei Kamara, look at the weekend's action around MLS, and Argy Bargy are back in this week's Wavelength.

Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:

It feels that the plates are moving in Whitecaps land. Tremors are being felt. The big one is coming. Amongst it all, the 'Caps are still fighting for a playoff place.

Next up for Vancouver is a trip to San Jose to face the team with the worst record in all of MLS. It's a place where the Whitecaps have yet to win, but surely they need to take all six points against a poor Earthquakes side to realistically still be in with a shot of making the postseason. Can they though?

Joe and Nick ponder all that and more, delving in to the threats that San Jose do have and what line up Robbo will put out to counter them.

There's a lot on the line and has Joe finally found a game that Nick can do well at inbetween it all? Have a listen and find out!

00:0000:00

From the highs of Portland to the lows of Toronto. It had been a busy and mixed few days for Vancouver Whitecaps. A lot of ups and a lot of downs, so it was perhaps only expected that we got both of those in the 'Caps 2-2 draw with New York Red Bulls on Saturday.

Depending on your glass half full/empty attitude to the 'Caps this season, this was either a battling point against one of the best teams in MLS this year, or two crucial points blown by an avoidable late goal. We take a look back at the match and hear from both head coaches.

Coming out of the draw, and with the West looking tight but also close to getting away from the Whitecaps, we look a bit further ahead and look at the future of some players and coaches, and look yet again at the team's current defensive woes.

All this, plus we hear from Tim Parker on his return to B.C. Place, talk about the mess the Vancouver Southsiders find themselves in after their recent statement about Kendall Waston, look at the weekend's action around MLS West, and Section 5 feature in this week's Wavelength.

Big games require big performances with big moments. If Vancouver Whitecaps' showing in Portland this weekend is an indication, then the team look to have the stomach for the battle ahead. There's a lot to talk about and we have five of AFTN's finest to do just that, all of them from various places around Cascadia.

With Steve home alone in upper Cascadia, and Zach stuck with a broken down car in middle Cascadia, Michael joins on the phone from the lower Cascadia coast to look back at the 'Caps fantastic win against the Timbers. A strong defensive team effort was on show and the guys break it down, with the help of some audio from both head coaches.

Joe and Nick are in the house, their own one, not the studio, to bring their preview expertise to the show and look ahead to what is set to be a dramatic Canadian Championship final second leg in Toronto midweek. The 'Caps head in as the underdogs, but every dog has its day, so can Wednesday be the Whitecaps one?

All this, plus we hear from Stefan Marinovic after the win in Portland, look at what the 'Caps lack of spending in this transfer window may mean, Zach joins Steve to look at the weekend's action around MLS West and Argy Bargy feature in this week's Wavelength.
