It's been an eventful week for Vancouver Whitecaps, albeit not the kind of headlines the club would be hoping they'd be making at this point of the season.

Carl Robinson's departure was a look to the future for the 'Caps, but if anyone thought it was going to have an immediate impact on the present, Saturday's loss to the LA Galaxy quickly dispelled those thoughts.

We look back on the week that was, talking some more about Robbo's release and who the prime candidates are to take over from him. Marc Dos Santos may be the standout name at the top of many people's lists, but who else is in the frame? And what identity will that see the 'Caps with moving forward?

We also pick over the bones of the loss in LA, hear from both interim head coaches, and bring you Zlatan Ibrahimovic's view on Alphonso Davies heading to Bayern Munich. The playoffs are still a mathematical possibility, but it's one tricky equation to make that happen.

All this, plus we look at what Robbo's departure will mean to some of the current squad, play you Kendall Waston's thoughts on it all, and English punk poet Patrik Fitzgerald features in this week's Wavelength.
