On this episode, Tyler and Simon look back at Whitecaps FC’s 1-0 home defeat to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday afternoon.

With the postseason looking more unlikely as each game goes by, what changes need to be made by the Blue and White - both on and off the pitch - for 2017? All is discussed in this latest edition.    

Following a costly defeat in Honduras on Friday, Canada’s hopes of reaching the final-round ‘Hexagonal’ stage of 2018 World Cup qualifying in CONCACAF hang by a thread. Needing to score goals against El Salvador at BC Place on Tuesday night and huge help from Mexico, who host the Hondurans at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City that same evening, can Benito Floro’s side pull off a soccer miracle?

On this episode, Tyler and Simon reflect on another defeat for Whitecaps FC - a costly 2-1 home loss to the San Jose Earthquakes.

Like London 2012, the Canadian women’s national team are one win away from the women’s soccer final at the Rio Olympics.

On this episode, Tyler and Simon discuss Whitecaps FC’s disastrous start to the defence of their Voyageurs Cup title.
