AFTN Soccer Show (Vancouver Whitecaps/MLS)

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

Vancouver Whitecaps are back at it. Preseason camp is officially underway and it's been a pretty intense and competitive first week.

We look at the big talking points from week one - who's stood out, who's battling for spots, and who looks like they might not want to unpack their suitcases.

We sit down with 'Caps coach Carl Robinson for our fifth annual offseason in-depth discussion as we look at the year just past, how the new season might play out, the demise of WFC2, the role of John Park, the possibility of new additions, whether the 'Caps can compete in the big spending MLS, and more.

We also chat with a player who finds himself in a unique position after more than 10 years in the pro game, as Canadian international David Edgar battles to earn a contract after missing all of last year through injury. We chat about all that, the appointment of John Herdman as new Canadian men's national team coach, and the exciting launch of the Canadian Premier League.

All this and we look at the big stories in Major League Soccer this week, play another round of trivia, and pay tribute to a Wavelength favourite - the Fall's Mark E Smith, who sadly died last week.
