We're back with another packed episode of the AFTN Soccer Show for your listening pleasure, with more Vancouver Whitecaps, Major League Soccer, and Canadian Premier League chat.

The new MLS season may only be four games in but they're already going on a break for the international window and the Whitecaps will be delighted by that. The 'Caps latest loss seems them winless in their opening month of matches and missing a number key personnel to injury.

We look back at the loss to LAFC, what the 'Caps can take from their first four games of the season, and where they really need to put in the work in the two week until their next match.

Our feature interview this episode is the latest in our series building up to the new CPL season as we sit down for an in-depth and entertaining chat with Cavalry FC head coach and GM Tommy Wheeldon Jr. We look back at the Cavs 2021 season and their three years in the league so far, delve into the new additions to the squad and what the team will look like this season, the future for the game in Alberta, and there's still time to talk tea, biscuits, waistcoats, and bunnets amongst many other things.

We also round up the weekend's action in MLS for the other two Canadian teams and around the Western Conference, The Delgados continue their residency as our artists of the month, and we have a song for Everton fans in this week's Wavelength.
