Episode 307 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Divided We Fall with guests Spencer Richey, Efrain Juarez, and Felipe)
Ah, the offseason. A quiet time for reflection and fun and games on the show. Or so we hoped. But nothing could have prepared us for the Vancouver Whitecaps bloodletting that took place at the club's end of season media day last Tuesday. We look back at all the big talking points from the Whitecaps' very own red wedding. Is there a locker room divide? Is there a culture problem at the club? Who's to blame? Plus we play you the thoughts of veteran Mexican midfielder Efrain Juarez on it all. What's next for the club? There's a new manager coming in but do the changes need to go much deeper? Also what will he make of what happened and what he's coming in to and will he even have much of a squad to inherit? With a number of player's futures very much up in the air, we look over a few and sit down with goalkeeper Spencer Richey after his return from a season long loan with FC Cincinnati. Will he be heading back there? Plus we talk fan abuse and struggling to settle in with Felipe, look the weekend's action around MLS, and much more.

Episode 306 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Auf Wiedersehen, Pet with guests Alphonso Davies, Jordon Mutch, and Simon Colyn)
It's the end of the season and the end of an, albeit short, era as Vancouver Whitecaps 2018 MLS season came to an end on Sunday and Alphonso Davies said goodbye to the club, the fans, and the city as he gets set to head off to Europe to join Bayern Munich. We look back at the emotional day that was but also the frustration that was left behind with the final standings that saw the 'Caps finish just two points, and one win, away from a playoff spot. How close were Vancouver in reality and does the squad need a complete rebuild or build around a current core when the new manager comes in? We look at all that and more, and ponder which other players we may have seen for the last time. We also sit down with Alphonso Davies to talk about his three years with the Whitecaps and relive some memories with him of his time in Vancouver. Plus we chat with Jordon Mutch about the ups and downs of his first season in MLS and hear from young homegrown player Simon Colyn after his MLS debut. Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:03.15: Vancouver Whitecaps chat - the Portland game, frustrations at just missing playoffs, pressure on new coach, what excites fans for next year54.32: Alphonso Davies interview and discussion77.50: Which players will be back, including Kendall Waston chat86.21: Jordon Mutch interview and discussion95.47: Simon Colyn scrum and young player discussion102.35: Wavelength - Los Campesinos - Every Defeat A Divorce (Three Lions)109.40: BC Soccerweb headlines - a look at some stories from around the football world
Episode 302 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Wake Me Up When October Ends)
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. Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:03.05: Robbo's firing and the state of the Whitecaps FO40.55: Whitecaps' coaching candidates58.59: LA Galaxy v Vancouver Whitecaps analysis65.31: Craig Dalrymple audio - 69.27: More Galaxy v Whitecaps analysis77.08: Whitecaps player chat - present and future81.06: Kendall Waston scrum post-Robbo firing and discussion96.12: Zlatan Ibrahimovic talks Alphonso Davies105.36: Wavelength - Patrik Fitzgerald - No Fun Football111.32: BC Soccerweb headlines - a look at some stories from around the football world
Episode 301 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Back To Basics with guests Craig Dalrymple, Stefan Marinovic, and Marvin Emnes)
The Carl Robinson era is over at Vancouver Whitecaps. He's certainly left an admirable legacy behind but it's time to get back to basics for the remainder of this season before the club heads into its most important offseason in their time in MLS. We look back at Robbo's sacking, the timing of it, what it means for the future, and especially how it may play out for the rest of this season. We also sit down for a chat with new, interim head coach, and a man we've known well for a number of years now, Craig Dalrymple. The dismissal of Robbo aside, there's still five games left to battle in this season, and while the playoffs may feel like a somewhat distant hope right now, they are at least still within touching distance and we chat with Stefan Marinovic about the mood of the group heading into them, facing Ibra and LA this weekend, and more. One man who we may see down the stretch is the last player Robbo brought into the squad, Marvin Emnes. We chat with the Dutch winger about where his fitness levels are at, when we may see him, and if he sees a future for himself in Vancouver at a Robboless Whitecaps. We go old school for this impromptu episode, recording it in our car! So the sound quality isn't up to our usual studio standard, but hopefully it won't take away from your enjoyment too much! Here's the full episode rundown of the main segments from the show:01.49: Carl Robinson fired11.00: Craig Dalrymple interview and discussion18.11: Some of the players and media's reaction to Robbo's firing26.46: Stefan Marinovic interview and LA galaxy chat33.16: Marvin Emnes interview and discussion
Episode 300 - The AFTN Soccer Show (Same Again - Vancouver v Dallas, Rahul Kholi, Jay Nolly) [NSFW]
What a weekend this could have been. Once again Vancouver Whitecaps had other results go in their favour and once again they failed to get the job done themselves. "Same again" said Carl Robinson, "not again" said the supporters. So our 300th episode isn't quite the celebratory start we'd hoped for as we pick over the bones of the 'Caps defeat to FC Dallas, but the fun soon starts to pick up after that! We have two interviews to bring you this week. First off all it's a blast from the past as we chat with Whitecaps legend Jay Nolly about his time with the 'Caps and his new career as a commentator for RSL. Next up is Rahul Kohli from iZombie to talk football, the last season of one of our favourite shows on TV right now, Funhaus, and racial stereotypes in the acting world. It's a great chat and we only wish we had double the time with him to get all our zombie questions out there! All this, plus we look at the weekend's action the MLS West, find out if Scott Arfield fancies a chocolate digestive, talk take out food with Jake Nerwinski and fish and chips with Kei Kamara, and there's a double dose of Wavelength to celebrate our milestone show featuring our favourites Half Man Half Biscuit and Frank Sidebottom.
