It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, so that means the football news is quietening down a little bit. Still stuff happening though in both Whitecapsland and the world of MLS, and we chat about some of the main talking points in this week's show.

We also continue our Whitecaps Year in Review with a look at the months of July and August. and with the 2018 PDC World Darts Championships getting underway last week, we have a darts theme, as we give some 'Caps players darting nicknames and take you back to the 1980's to play a little bit of Bullseye.

All this, plus Gordon Forrest talks take out food and there's more Football Violence in our Wavelength.

The 2017 MLS season is now finally officially over, but the offseason has been in very much full swings for several weeks now.

And it's been another busy few days in Whitecapsland. A lot of player movement, potential movement, and news stories to cover from both a Vancouver and MLS standpoint and we'll look at a lot of them in this episode.

In fact there's so much to cover that we're splitting Sunday's AFTN Soccer Show from the radio into two podcasts this week, so that we can bring you a bonus addition of the first chat with new signing Kei Kamara in this episode.

We'll also look at the players protected by the Whitecaps ahead of this week's expansion draft, further signing rumours, the latest with Yordy Reyna, the new TAM allocation in MLS, and The Oppressed feature in this week's Wavelength feature.

That song and other elements of this episode contain strong language so the usual advisory warning is in effect and it's NSFW.

Enjoy!
