Episode 492 – The AFTN Soccer Show (2021 Christmas Special with Vanni Sartini, Ryan Gauld, Max Crepeau, and Brian White)

11:01pm - 2:06am

Ho, Ho, Ho everybody and welcome to the 2021 AFTN Christmas party! There’s fun, there’s games, there’s music, there’s presents, and there’s lots of football chat.

Our feature interview this episode is what is now our ninth annual State of the Whitecaps end of season chat with the current head coach on the podcast, and our first one with Vanni Sartini. In a very honest and raw interview, Vanni talks about the season past, looks ahead to next year, and talks about what he learned about himself as a coach and as a person.

There’s some interesting player chat and we talk about formations, the team’s identity, getting to the next level, and the pressure that comes with it all.

Getting the festive spirit flowing, we find out what Christmas is like in the Vanni Sartini, Ryan Gauld, Maxime Crepeau, and Brian White households, plus you can play along at home as we play some football themed games.

All of this, plus some Christmas music from Crazy and the Brains, Super Furry Animals, The Monkees, Walk The Earth, Dean Martin and of course, no Christmas episode would be complete without The Pogues.
