AFTN Soccer Show (Vancouver Whitecaps/MLS)

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

It's Episode 29 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast and it's our first Canadian national team post game show.

The Canadian women visited Vancouver to play out a pretty boring goalless draw with Mexico. We chat with Equalizer Soccer writer Harjeet Johal about the game and the future of the women's program.

We also hear the post game reaction from head coach John Herdman, captain Christine Sinclair and goalkeeper Erin McLeod.

CEO of the FIFA 2015 Women's World Cup National Organising Committee, Peter Montopoli, was in town and we speak with him about the upcoming World Cup, the turf controversy and the lack of professional women's teams in Canada and none existing in the NWSL.

And there's still time for a little Whitecaps chat as we look at Bobby Lenarduzzi's latest comments about the search for the Caps' new manager.

Episode 28 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast and it's been pretty quiet in Whitecapsland the last week or so.

With no real front runners having emerged in the managerial hunt, we pick over what we know, what we think of those in the frame so far and reveal a new high profile name in the mix that the Whitecaps are said to be talking to this coming weekend.

Whilst taking their time to get the right man for the job is a good thing, with decisions on players needing to be made, and the players themselves keen to find out what's happening, how will the continued delay affect the upcoming trade window opening and plans for next month's re-entry draft?

In the more busy world of MLS, we look ahead to this weekend's Conference Finals second legs. Remember them? With the help of our new special guest, Predictapooch, we tell you who will be contesting the 2013 MLS Cup.

We chat about the new 21st MLS club, Orlando City, and look over the MLS awards shortlists for this year and the brief Whitecaps involvement.

And there's still time for a brief chat about the Canadian senior national teams, following the men's latest loss and the women's game in Vancouver on Sunday.

So have a listen!

It's Episode 27 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast and it's the second part of our end of the season roundtable.

Steve and myself are joined once again by Steven Lamothe and Zachary Meisenhamer from Curva Collective and former head honcho of the Southsiders, John Knox.

We look at the Whitecaps squad that finished the season and debate who should stay and who should go. I'd get rid of pretty much most of them, but others aren't so quick in doing so!

Our "30 Seconds To Mars" gameshow returns, for three quickfire rounds, looking at the most disappointing Caps loss, most damaging Caps injury and Sam Adekugbe, with a much cherished mars bar awaiting the winner.

And there's still time to read out tweets from our listeners as to some of the weird places that they've met footballers over the years.

So have a listen and sorry about the echoey feel to some of it!

It's Episode 26 of "There's Still Time", the AFTN podcast and it's our first end of the season roundtable. Still feels a little premature that the season's done and dusted.

Steve and myself are joined by a couple of familiar voices in Steven Lamothe and Zachary Meisenhamer from Curva Collective and at long last our schedules aligned and we're joined by long time listener, first time podder, former head honcho of the Southsiders, John Knox.

It's the 3M edition - Mattocks, Martin, Managers.

It's been a busy time in Whitecapsland since our last pod and we kick things off this episode with the main talking point of the week - the Darren Mattocks' mouth. Is there any love in the room for last year's leading scorer and is there any way he'll be kitted out in a Whitecaps strip next season?

From someone that might be leaving to someone that has already left - Martin Rennie. Rennie's departure split the fans and it also splits our panel. We discuss where it all went wrong for the Scot, but there's also some love coming his way for his turning of this team around, something that's been missed a little in all the managerial hotseat fallout.

So now that the Caps are looking for a new manager, who will it be? We chat about the expected contenders and throw in a couple of other names that have been rumoured to have made the shortlist.

Do we want any of them and are our options going to be a little bit limited by the infamous committee?
.
And there's still time to read out tweets from our listeners as to who they would ideally like to have at the Whitecaps helm and show how up with the latest trends we are by talking about the TV show "Cheers".

We'd planned to talk about a lot more, but once we get started, the time just flies. So we recorded a second podcast and you can here that next week!

So have a listen and sorry about the echoey feel to some of it!
