Episode 489 – The AFTN Soccer Show (Purple Reign with special guest Maxime Crepeau)

11:00pm - 1:51am

The latest AFTN Soccer Show is out for another packed episode of Vancouver Whitecaps, MLS, and Canadian football chat.

And what a show we have for you this episode as we celebrate Pacific FC winning their first Canadian Premier League championship. We look back at their win over Forge, hear from head coach Pa Modou Kah and goalscoring hero Alessandro Hojabrpour, and look ahead to what may lie in the club’s and Kah’s future.

Turning our attention to the Whitecaps, we look at the big news in Whitecapsland as Vanni Sartini is confirmed as the club’s head coach and their end of season roster decisions are announced. Plus we look at who we would protect in next week’s MLS Expansion Draft and discuss this weekend’s MLS Conference Finals.

Our feature interview this episode is with Whitecaps goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau. We chat to Max about his year with Vancouver and Canada, talk about the art of saving penalties, and more.

Plus we kick off our 11th annual AFTN End of Season awards as we pick the Whitecaps Player of the Year, Young Player of the Year, Academy Player of the Year, and one to watch in 2022, plus pick the team’s goal, save, and game of the year.

All of this, plus Danish band Dreamjockey feature in this episode’s Wavelength and Isle of Wight band Wet Leg begin their residency as our Artists of the Month.
