Back to back wins certainly puts a spring in our step. As does the veritable feast of football that we had around this world this past week. And we talk about a lot of it in this week's show.

We kick things off with an analysis of Vancouver Whitecaps' 1-0 win over Portland Timbers in MLS action on Friday night. A great defensive display that saw the 'Caps, temporarily at least, move into the playoff places, but most certainly now in the mix. We look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from the match, the supporters walkout, and the concerns the team still give us.

Our feature interview this week is with Whitecaps defender Ali Adnan, as we sit down with the Iraqi international to talk about his footballing life so far, from playing football as a little boy in Iraq to his footballing family, the moves to Turkey and Italy, and now to MLS.

We also chat with Marc Dos Santos about technology in the modern game and MLS managers complaining, to Will Cromack about the new TSS Rovers season, continue our 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl celebrations, and more!
