We knew it wouldn't last. Vancouver Whitecaps unbeaten run is over! It was only two games, but boy, what a couple of matches! A Cascadia Cup loss to Portland means another trophy deserts the 'Caps this season. We look at the match and what has been a busy week of comings, goings, and rumours in Whitecapsland. We sit down for a chat with 'Caps coach Marc Dos Santos to talk about squad building, mistakes made, recruitment practices, and just how a club like Vancouver can compete with the big spenders of MLS. It's been a week with a lot of news in MLS too. We delve into the weekend's matches, look at Wayne Rooney's imminent departure, how LA Galaxy seem to have manipulated MLS roster rules in their favour yet again, and we hear from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as he slates MLS refs and the playoff system. All this plus we look at the week's Canadian Championship action, discuss the current set up of football on TV here, and there's Wavelength, BC Soccerweb headlines, and fun food segments with David Edgar and Felipe Martins.

They've only been and gone and done it. Vancouver Whitecaps won a match! Okay, so it wasn't pretty and it was against a shambles of a team, but a win is a win is a win and right now any small victories they can get should be grabbed with both hands. We look at the main talking points coming out of the victory over FC Cincinnati and the big news in Whitecapsland and throughout MLS this week. From transfers to games to suspensions and failed drug tests, there's been a lot to chat about. Keeping with Canadian club football, we chat with Cavalry FC head coach Tommy Wheeldon about their league season so far, what's made them the class of the CPL, and the need to keep it going to the championship game.

Vancouver Whitecaps are in a mess. Or are a mess. Or maybe both. Forget Friday the 13th, Saturday the 13th was a day to avoid for them, with no luck to be found at BC Place. We pick over the bones of the 'Caps' third straight loss in a row, a 3-0 home defeat to Sporting Kansas City.

We also hear SKC head coach Peter Vermes' thoughts on the match and the Whitecaps, look around the happenings in MLS, and get a chat with the man, KC's Scottish forward Johnny Russell about life in the league, whether Sporting can launch a late push for the playoffs, and his thoughts on the new Scotland boss Steve Clarke.

Joe and Gideon are back with AFTN's latest preview podcast as they look ahead to the 'Caps match at home to Colorado Rapids on Saturday.

Can the 'Caps stop the Rapids resurgence? Do they have enough depth to handle the four key players away on international duty with Canada? And can they get not make life difficult for themselves at the end of matches by finally putting a game to bed? All this and more are discussed, so have a listen!
The boys are back in town, just as some Vancouver Whitecaps are out of town. It's the Gold Cup break and the 'Caps have three weeks off. We recharged our batteries last weekend but are back to look at how the Whitecaps stand at this halfway(ish) point of the MLS season. What's been the highlights, the lowlights, and the major positives and concerns up to this point? With the 'Caps missing four key defensive pieces to Gold Cup duty with Canada, how will the team cope in some crucial games coming up at the end of the month?

Another busy week for Vancouver Whitecaps is in the history books. Lots of travel, lots of goals, and a four point haul from two matches was the end result and we look back at it all in this week's show. We delve into the good, the bad, and the ugly from the draw at New York Red Bulls and the home win against FC Dallas. Some good results but there's still a lot of concerns around the team's passing, creativity, and the amount of shots they're giving up, not to mention the mounting injuries as TFC head to town on Friday. We round-up what's been a busy week around MLS, look at one of the big talking points around the league this season - travel and charter flights - and bring you some thoughts on that from Philadelphia Union's Alejandro Bedoya.
