Episode 21 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast, is a post game pod following Vancouver Whitecaps' miserable 1-0 loss to Real Salt Lake.

Recorded at BC Place after the game, we pick over the bones of the Caps' playoff carcass. What went wrong? Why couldn't we beat a reserve team? And who needs to shoulder the blame?

We hear audio from Martin Rennie, David Ousted and some very honest and sadly accurate post game comments from a clearly dejected and frustrated Nigel Reo-Coker.

We also head into enemy territory and have a chat with Jason Kreis about the game, the successful RSL system of play and look ahead to their midweek US Open Cup final against DC United.

Turning our attention back to the Caps, is there still some hope left? A little and we look at the scenarios that need to play out to see Vancouver make it to the postseason, as unlikely as that may seem just now.

And there's still time to end the show on a happier note with a look at the Whitecaps Residency's start to the season and the recent Whitecaps media match that saw your two co-hosts square off in the Championship game.

We've tried not to depress you too much, but it was hard after such a performance by the Caps and our closing song probably won't help!

Episode 20 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast, is another of our popular roundtables.

Recorded in two parts, this the second part, the first of which was published as Episode 19 last week.

My usual co-host Steve and myself are joined by Zachary Meisenhamer from Curva Collective, long time fan Steven Lamothe and AFTN writer Jay Duke to a lot of Caps and MLS talking points.

After looking at the state of the Whitecaps nation last episode, our five man team try and look at where things have gone wrong this season. We turn our attentions to Martin Rennie, what he brings to the Caps and the future of the gaffer and the Whitecaps, this season and beyond.

Is he responsible for the Whitecaps' poor recent form or do the players have to shoulder a lot of the responsibility? If Rennie is to be replaced, who are the main candidates out there to take over and will any changes go further up the managerial chain?

And there's still time to chat about transparency in MLS, or lack of.
So many questions! There's some answers but there's also a lot more debated in amongst it all too, including Bobby Lenarduzzi being compared to your local corner store, David Ferreira to sticking a straw into a cow's neck and what magical shoe purchases can be made with allocation money.

Episode 19 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast, is another of our popular roundtables.

Recorded in two parts, the second of which will be up next week, this episode takes a look at the current state of the Vancouver Whitecaps nation. And what a state it seems to be in. More Michigan than California.

My usual co-host Steve and myself are joined by Zachary Meisenhamer from Curva Collective, long time fan Steven Lamothe and AFTN writer Jay Duke to discuss the Caps talking points of the week.

We have to look back at the loss in Dallas unfortunately. Was it as bad as it first appeared? It seems worse from Martin Rennie's viewpoint, who has totally changed his thoughts about the performance. What was with the team selection and substitutions?

Moving on to San Jose, is there still hope that something can be salvaged from this season and what scenarios need to play out for Rennie to still be coach for next season? Who should play, who should be dropped and who wins the Ousted v Knighton v Cannon battle for starting goalkeeper? Will there maybe even be some trades before Friday?

How do our panel see the Caps finishing their season? What points total do they need, will they get it and who will fill the top five positions in the West?

So many questions! There's some answers but there's also a lot more debated in amongst it all too.

And there's still time for the guests to debate three key questions as they hope to win a mars bar in our "30 Seconds To Mars" gameshow.

Episode 18 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast comes just in time for Vancouver Whitecaps to head out on the road again on a three game away trip.

We look at what the Caps' might need to get from these three crucial games and hear the thoughts of Kenny Miller and David Ousted, who are very honest about what they feel the Caps need to go out there and achieve.

We also look back at the draw with Chivas at the weekend. What can the Caps learn from that draw and how worried should we be about some of the deficiencies with the team?

With the recent addition of Sam Adekugbe to the MLS squad, we discuss some of the current emerging talent and ask who will be next to make the step up?

All this and there's still time to look at the murmurs surrounding MLS reducing the regular season to 28 games to cater for international dates.
