What a week of football this has been and we bring you as much chat about it as we can cram into two and a half hours!

We start things off by looking back at Canada's historic Nations League victory against the US on Tuesday, as we hear from a cock-a-hoop Canadian head coach John Herdman and chat about how the loss went down among a number of the US media.

Turning our attention to MLS, we look back at the initial roster moves made by Vancouver Whitecaps this past week and what that may mean for the future look of the squad, and we delve into a truly fantastic weekend of MLS playoff action with's Jonathan Tannenwald.

It's been a busy week in the CPL as well. As the first ever regular season wraps up, we hear from caretaker Pacific FC head coach James Merriman about the end to their season and sit down for a chat with Pacific co-owner Rob Friend about the club's decision to sack head coach Michael Silberbauer and what the ideal future looks like for the club.

All this plus Scott Sutter talks TV, Vanilla Muffins are back in Wavelength, 13 Tombs continue as our artists of the month for October, and there's BC Soccerweb headlines.
