Vancouver Whitecaps travelled to a Galaxy not that far, far away at the weekend, just in LA. Although Los Angeles can feel like you're on a different planet sometimes.

It's the stories of back to backs in this podcast. The 1-0 loss in LA was the Caps' second straight loss but they have the chance for redemption right away as the Galaxy head north to BC Place this weekend. We pick over the bones of the defeat on Saturday and look ahead to what it might mean for the team this coming weekend.

There's audio from Tuesday first training session back after the game and we hear some thoughts from head coach Carl Robinson, captain Jay DeMerit and Jordan Harvey.

We've been wanting to do this since he came to the club, so we finally catch up with Whitecaps' assistant coach Martyn Pert for an interesting chat about his time in Vancouver and MLS so far and about his many travels. We talk about the time he was in charge in Ecuador for a month, middle east football and the Qatar World Cup, those tumultuous times at Cardiff last year, travelling around 16 clubs in Europe in 16 weeks and the comments of Andrea Pirlo on pre-match warm ups.

And there's still time to look at the MLS standings and take an early look at how things are shaping up.

Have a listen!
