AFTN Soccer Show (Vancouver Whitecaps/MLS)

The AFTN football/soccer podcast primarily about Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and the Canadian Premier League with lots of interviews and fun segments thrown in.

Episode 25 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast. It's "The End Of The Season As We Know It" episode, our last post game podcast of the season, but fear not, as we've plenty more episodes to bring you before the end of the year.

We recorded this episode at BC Place after the 3-0 win over Colorado and before the breaking news we brought you on Monday that Martin Rennie was no longer the manager of the Caps, so there's a few moot discussion points!

Vancouver Whitecaps finished off their season in style and we look back on the game and hear post game audio from captain Jay DeMerit, debutant Sam Adekugbe, the retiring YP Lee, MLS Golden Boot winner Camilo Sanvezzo and in what was his last game as Whitecaps boss, Martin Rennie.

We soon turn our attentions to the future and what lies in store for Martin Rennie and the Whitecaps, and speculate about Frank Yallop taking over the reigns.

And there's still time to have a look at the MLS playoffs. Who do we want to do well? Who do we think will do well? And what teams would we like to see beat each other to a pulp?

Listen and find out!

Episode 24 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast. It's the "Goodbye Playoffs, Hello Mediocrity" episode, also known as the "Colorado post game show" and "The one where an angry Scot rants at you for close to an hour".

After the Cascadia high came the Rockies low. A 3-2 defeat to Colorado Rapids sent Vancouver Whitecaps spiralling out of the playoffs and Martin Rennie probably towards the unemployment line, along with a lot of the players.

We don't really want to but we look back at the game that ended the Whitecaps playoff hopes and try and pinpoint where it went wrong this season. Can winning the Cascadia Cup and logging more wins, points and goals scored make still make it a success?

That's how Rennie is spinning things and we look at his post game comments on Saturday and ponder whether he can stay on now and where all these established young players he is talking about can be found.

There's still time for a look at what we want to see in the last game of the season and we start our campaign to get both Joe Cannon and Sam Adekugbe some playing time in the season finale.

There's a lot more chat too about all things Whitecaps, including some tweets from our listeners about the season past and future, so crank us up.

Episode 23 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast. We really wish it was 41 as we have the numbers 4 and 1 firmly implanted in our head right now.

It's a very jubilant podcasting crew this episode in the wake of the demolition handed out by Vancouver Whitecaps to Seattle Sounders in Cascadia Cup action.

We look back on the game, dissect the goals and ask where that performance has been for most of the season.

It was a team performance but there were also some magnificent individual efforts and we take a look at the play of Kekuta Manneh, Daigo Kobayashi, David Ousted and Jun Marques Davidson.

We hear some post game thoughts of Martin Rennie, Kekuta Manneh and Nigel Reo-Coker on the performance, the win and the team's playoff hopes and the three of them also chat with us, along with David Ousted, on whether the upcoming ten day break between matches will benefit or hinder the Caps.

And there's still time to look ahead to Colorado and try and break down what could play out in an exciting run in with four teams jostling for two MLS playoff spots.

Episode 22 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast. An apt number for the episode as this is a post game pod following Vancouver Whitecaps' entertaining, yet disappointing, 2-2 draw with Portland Timbers.

Recorded at BC Place after the game, we pick over the bones of a game which saw four great goals, a stirring fightback from the Caps, but ultimately did nothing to aid Vancouver's ever decreasing playoff hopes.

We chat about the game, the line up and the goals and hear audio from Martin Rennie and Jay DeMerit from the Whitecaps end.

We also head into enemy territory and speak with Portland's Will Johnson, Donovan Ricketts and boss Caleb Porter. Some interesting comments from all three of them.

Turning our attention back to the Caps, we once again ask the question, is there still some hope left? It's still 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. As we chat through them you can share the pain of us as the full scale of what is needed become all to evident.

And there's still time to read out some tweets from our listeners in our first interactive section of the show.
