We've gone all Egyptian for this week's AFTN Soccer Show to welcome the latest Vancouver Whitecaps, Aly Ghazal and make him feel at home. We have the studio all decked out with Egyptian paraphernalia, and Steve and Anna battle it out in our Egyptian themed quiz for the prize of a chocolate pyramid.

What more could you want? Well three points on the road against a struggling New England Revolution side would have been nice. We look back at one of the worst games in the season and get the postgame thoughts of both head coaches, Carl Robinson and Jay Heaps. Did any 'Caps cover themselves in glory? And what about the surprise line-up changes, can more be read in to that?

We also look back at a busy week that saw players coming and going, and look ahead to the big home clashes to come, starting with next week's match with Houston Dynamo.

All this plus Genesis in this week's Wavelength section, and does Tim Parker fancy a chocolate digestive?

Vancouver Whitecaps' road trip rolled into Colorado this weekend, fighting to a 2-2 draw with the Rapids. A tad disappointing or a hard point well earned? We look at that, the highs and lows of the match, and which players stood out for all the right and the wrong reasons. With New England next up, we also look ahead at what might be in store for the 'Caps against the Revolution.

With the transfer window set to close in a few days we chat to a player who could be joining the Whitecaps, Canadian international Adam Straith. The Residency alumni is here training with the 'Caps as a free agent, and we also chat with another former Residency player who was back in Vancouver this past week, current Rio Grande Toros keeper Marco Carducci.

All this and a World Cup anthem that wasn't to be in this week's Wavelength section, plus Stewart Kerr talks fish and chips, and does Jordan Harvey fancy a chocolate digestive?
