MLS First Kick 2016 is just around the corner and the excitement is building in Vancouver for what could be a season of great possibilities for the Whitecaps.

Montreal Impact come a calling to BC Place for the 'Caps home opener. They'll be without Didier Drogba, so exactly how much of a challenge with they post to Vancouver? We look ahead to the game and cast an eye over Montreal's line-up, their preseason form and what we can expect from the eastern Canadians in the new season. How will Vancouver counter them and what line-up and formation are we likely to see from Carl Robinson?

There will be a couple of Whitecaps MLS debuts on Sunday and one of them with be from influential Costa Rican playmaker Christian Bolaños. We sit down with the veteran midfielder to discuss what's brought him to MLS now, what role he sees himself playing in Vancouver, take a brief journey through his career, discuss the rise of Costa Rican soccer and find out what he still wants to achieve in the game.

And there's still time to look ahead at the upcoming MLS season. Who will reign in each Conference? Will there be any dark horses? And who is going to take home the Cup this year and what are the chances of it sitting in the Whitecaps trophy cabinet as an early Christmas present?

There's a lot of chat to be had, so have a listen!
