Back to back home losses for Vancouver Whitecaps now as the MLS season gets down to the wire.

It was a tale of two penalties at BC Place on Saturday night, both horrible awards, and some woeful finishing from the 'Caps as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat to New York City FC.

We pick over the bones of the defeat with the help of Harjeet Johal.

What was with the officiating? What was with the finishing? What's with the inability to get some breathing space at the top of the table? Did any Whitecaps players stand out or did they all just freeze in front of their big name opponents? We look at these talking points and more.

We also hear from the victorious NYC locker room and get the thoughts of head coach Jason Kreis, goalscorer Frank Lampard and US international Mix Diskerud.

We'll also chat about fawning over the names in town, the decision to keep the capacity at 21,000 and disrespecting the Supporters' Shield.

And there's still time to bring back an old segment to lighten the mood, as we look at some of the more offbeat stories in the world of soccer this past week.

Have a listen!
