It's POvember!

PlayOff November. Get it? Ok, that's pretty bad, but we've thought of it and we're sticking with it. Anyhoo, it's the playoffs baby!

Vancouver Whitecaps are hopefully 90 minutes away from their first MLS Western Conference final following a semi-final first leg 0-0 draw in Portland on Sunday. With everything still to play for, we look back at the game and hear from both coaches - Vancouver's Carl Robinson and Portland's Caleb Porter.

The Whitecaps season has most definitely been built on a solid defensive footing and one player who has certainly played his part in that is rookie centre back Tim Parker. We talk with the American about his debut season in MLS, his development, his first playoff experience and his hopes of playing for the US national team.

And talking of rookies, there's still time to hear from Canadian international, and likely MLS Rookie of the Year, Cyle Larin, who chats about his first season as a pro in MLS, what he's learned with Orlando City and looking ahead to next week's big World Cup qualifier in Vancouver, as Canada take on Honduras.

Have a listen!
